I Love books. I buy lots of books. Just today I received a package with two books that costed me over 150€. Two paperback books. That’s a lot! But this is not a problem. I need them. I love them. I pay the price.
What pissed me off, was that this book, The Geometry of Biological Time, published by Springer, the most expensive of the two, is such a lazy print from Springer. It seems that they just used a Xerox machine and glued 800 pages to make the binding. What a crap work this is, springer? This would be acceptable for a small shop around the corner, but not from you, and not at these prices!
