Hi,

I like this book and would like to purchase it. But amazon india shows exorbitant price even for a kindle edition (please refer attachment). Is there any other medium available at lower price? Thanks.

Hi Karthik,

Interestingly enough, I am teaching folks in India right now via Webex.  I'll also be there next month teaching a class.  Small world.

I wish I had a good answer for you.  Unfortunately, I don't set the prices.  I'm a bit surprised at the cost of this in India though!  That is about $27.50 US for the Kindle edition?  If I go to Amazon in the US right now, the Kindle price is $19.79.  No idea why it is $8 more in India. I also did a little searching around and couldn't find a better price.  Like I said, I wish I had a solution for you, but I only write the books, it is up to the powers that be to price/market/sell them.  

I hope the price for the India version goes down soon.

Thank you,

-Bo
