Ive seen that book costs around $150.00! Is it because they released only a few copies of that book or what? And whats in it? Thanks

I wondered that, too, until I found it on Ebay for like, $15 or so. It's out of print, which explains Amazon and other places charging that much, but once in awhile you can come across a copy for a decent price.

On Amazon you can get it under the used bit for a very decent price!
Do not order it new off amazon, cause they don't have it anymore!! They say they do, but they'll just keep you waiting and waiting and waiting...
God knows why...

Sometimes they have low prices on used books but you have to check frequently because they dont last long. They may not be in perfect shape but I have seen them as low as 25.00. Check out ALibris books,they seem to have more to choose from time to time.


just turn yourself into anything you think that you could ever be

I bought a copy for £2 from Oxfam a few years back and sold it on ebay for £35.

Which was nice.
