Nothing drives home the fact that information is a commodity in this day and age like a survey of the world’s most expensive e-books. For example, one such book is an apparently untitled book available through DailyVariance.com which to improve its purchaser’s poker skills so much that it pays for its $1,850 price tag. In fact, the authors rely on their customers’ own greed to keep the book from being distributed once their DRM is inevitably cracked. After all, poker secrets are no good when they’re no longer secrets.
But $1,850 is a drop in the bucket compared to the world’s most expensive e-book. “Nuclear Energy,” available through Amazon on their Kindle e-book reader, comprises three volumes of “Energy Technologies” and is intended for use by scientists, engineers and students (yeah, right) who need a reference for all the technologies necessary to harness and use nuclear energy.
So how much is this essential—for anyone who wants to build a nuclear power plant, at least—e-book? The print copy costs $7,790. Luckily for Kindle users, the 602-page e-book costs 20% less at $6,232! I know I’m excited—aren’t you?
