Better :-)

But it is an older edition. It says "24.72€", which is way more than
"$14.74". Go figure.

The 3rd edition is the latest. I still see $14.74. I guess it costs
more to ship ebooks to Spain. ;-)

Hmm, I see £20.39 for the kindle edition of the 3rd edition but I could
buy a new paper copy for £14.49 (not directly from Amazon). I guess it
costs a lot to ship electrons across the pond, especially when compared
to the cost of shipping paper :)


Kobo today lists it at 18.74€. One issue is that paper books get a reduced tax, whereas ebooks are taxed as luxury items. Or something like that. On the other hand, shipping paper is expensive, so it depends a lot. Shipping a single book, which would be applied to me, is expensive. Shipping a bunch and selling on bookstores is cheaper. But I don't live on a big city, so no chance to find it locally.

PS On .com I see paper for $35.35 from Amazon, $29.85 kindle. So I guess
they're pretty keen on slicing the market.

In this case, I want paper, and wants 60€ for that, used.

Google finds the 2nd edition in PDF. I don't suppose that's a legal copy.
