    **** me...even the HD books are grossly overpriced...
    As I have said before though, I have to hand HD the marketing crown for image creation that sells and sells and sells.

    And he's got balls enough to charge $6 for shipping it too!!! For that kind of cash I think I would include shipping costs.

    Hey people have you ever heard of a thing called Google? I bet you can find most, if not all of the stuff he has in this book on-line.

    **** me gently ! For that price, I'd want the bike included ! Not that I'd want a bike of course, but I could sell it for scrap, then sell the book at a reasonable price .....

    Check at Amazon otherwise google it...that clown is mighty proud of himself, that's for sure.

    Wait for that price, perhaps the book comes with parts, a chilled case of beer and neccesary tools to complete the job?

    Riiiiiight.....just been looking at MiG by Yefim Gordon on Amazon, nothing to serious, £70+ for his book about the Tu-95, but £951,26 and £1640,94 for the one about the MoH 21 from the good ol' US of A!!??
    Are these pot schmoking, weed growing characters serious!!??
    I hope that they don't have any hope in selling them, because hell will freeze over and the devil sell tickets for the sleigh rides, before they do!! :shock:

    And for a new edition, not a vintage printing...

    I suppose for that price, they'll deliver it personally, hold the book and turn the pages for you. :lol:

    Bl**dy ridiculous! The authors must be fuming that someone is profiteering from their hard work.
