Hi David,
He does not do a brisk business. He doesn't come across like an honest person.

I think most people know when they are being ripped off. I don't understand haw this guy can stay in business. Surely you encountered complaint at your own business even though you were reasonable.

I think the high priced book on Amazon is just a fake listing. A manipulation to get the lower priced book to sell.

Out of print used book prices should be set by demand? Is there that much demand for Bob's book that it should be price at $1000.00 to $10000.00 No one will pay that.

An offer price isn't a transaction price.

Hi,
I really don't run into that many complaints here. I just try to treat other people as I would like to be treated. That tends to work well.

As for buddy in the book store, I've told him that an offer price has nothing to do with a value. I just had to get a Motorola transistor data book as it was in excellent shape and seemed to have a leather cover. It's very useful for ancient transistor numbers and I've used it often. I didn't like the $25 price he charged, but that was better than the $65 he said it was worth. I'm pretty sure he got it for nothing or $5 ~ $10 tops. There is an air of desperation about him. I don't think he does well, but its what he can do and has a large investment. I should drop in to see if he has anything interesting. You never know ...

-Chris

I don't have a real good idea because they don't tell me how many they printed and I don't get a cumulative number in the royalty statement. However, I'm pretty sure that the first print run was between 4000 and 5000. So I'm pretty sure sales exceeded 4000, possibly by a significant amount. This does not include Kindle sales, which I think were only about 10% of all sales.

Cheers,
Bob
