Re: theos-talk TS - History of a Spiritual Movement - Jeffrey D Lavoie - A must read

The paperback copy sells for $29.95 and ebook costs $27.00.

While the book may contain valuable information, most readers interested in
the topic will find it pricey and I will not be surprised if actual sales
is miniscule.

We all have seen tradition business model is being replaced low priced
digital copies. What happened to the music albums is slowly happening to
books. Also the greatest threat is what low priced high speed scanners can
do to pricey hard copy publications.

Many of us cannot afford to purchase the book at the above prices. Will
have to wait till the bottom falls or pdf copy is made available for free.
