J. Paliwoda says:
the pricing is set by the market - it's not a cost-plus model. The goal of any business is to cover ALL costs (including print) and to maximize profits. So, the Kindle price may not reflect the stand-alone costs of the Kindle edition. Make sense?

Amazon explained that the puslisher sometimes sets prices and this is noted just below the pricing area next to this particular book. So, Amazon did not set the price on this one and is only getting hurt by those who are put off by the price. I'm not buying it at this price, either, but at least I am no longer as angry at Amazon. They should try to wield their considerable influence, though, since it's only hurting their sales and angering lots of folks.The Sixth Man

True, but it does cost less to do an e-book for download, vice the paper and cover etc for an actual book.
