HOLY COW - Unintended Consequences by John Ross

I have a well worn copy of this book from way back that I probably paid $35 for when new. After a recent discussion with an Uncle of mine about the movie based on Ann Rand's Atlas Shrugged, I suggested Unintendd Consequenses to him. When he checked on Amazon, etc., used ones are going for $70-$80 and new ones are over $200. HOLY COW, what happended? I guess it is out of print now?

Comparing a book to Rand's snooze-fest doesn't make me want to run out and buy or down load a copy.

Er, a reported 7 - 8 million copies of Atlas Shrugged have been sold.
No doubt the number of second hand readers would greatly increase the numbers.
Doubt if a snooze-fest could be all that popular.
But it ain't no comic book.

Don't care if Rand is a boring book, not gun related. OK, Ross' book is expensive.

Closed.

PS - sorry but we don't run a general chat fest, even if interesting.
