Interesting. Instead of taking 5 seconds to understand how the publishing industry works, instead you insult the author. Publishing companies, like every other company in the world, do what they can to optimize their profits. This is how we operate under capitalism. It's a beautiful thing. Once all the hard cover highly profitable books have been sold, the Kindle will come. Instead you've got about 1 million other Kindle books to purchase while you wait patiently for this one.
