I just sent a personal email to Boudewijn and I echo this feeling. Boudewijn, 
perhaps you can sell us the book directly, so that we know that the money is 
going into you and your publishers pockets. I won't mind spending $10-$20 
more as long as it is going to the right place. I know you have several 
copies at your home! ;-)

I personally find Amazon's business tactics and patent policies atrocious, so 
I never use them. I always prefer bn.com or some other retailer.
