Not mentioning that the price is marked down from $8,000 is a bit unfair to bargain hunters.

The price is $7,556.66 when I click through.

@Nick

The marginal cost of the research has little to do with the marginal cost of the book.

And it costs $1,250.06 more than the hardcover edition! I usually think Kindle editions are inadequately discounted compared to the actual cost of printing, but this in one heckuva physical book if printing costs that much. On the other hand, maybe you pay a premium to avoid your book being 1984'ed.

If these prices are genuine, it might relate to piracy problems. Buy one and distribute/pirate/copy/sell it?

@ anonymous

Interesting that the book is by the former CTO of Microsoft . Interesting that cooking interests so many men of intellect.

The price discrepency is probably variable pricing, used by Amazon for years. They will change the price you see for a host of reasons, your buying history, patterns, how long an item has been in your cart/wishlist, what web browser you use.

Here's an article from 2000, the practice is that old.

Hi everyone,

I did a bit of research and found a thread dedicated to different pricing based on location: http://www.amazon.co.uk/tag/kindle/forum?cdThread...

Apparently, varying prices are no exception. Before I get my Kindle, I will spend some time comparing prices in various countries. This will help me decide where I should register it - if I have a choice, that is.
