This review is from: Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944-1956 (Kindle Edition)
I TOTALLY AGREE WITH MANY OTHER CUSTOMERS ABOUT THE INFLATED PRICE OF THIS BOOK---THIS REMINDS ME EXACTLY OF WHAT HAPPENED WHEN MUSIC CDS HIT IN THE LATE 80'S---ALL THE COMPANIES CLAIMED THE PRICES WOULD GO DOWN COMPARED TO VINYL AND GUESS WHAT???---THEY KEPT GOING UP!! THIS EVENTUALLY WAS THE DOWNFALL OF THE CD INDUSTRY AND WILL BE THE DOWNFALL OF DIGITAL PRINTED BOOKS IF PUBLISHERS KEEP INFLATING PRICES!!

the book seems very well written and researched but i was only given the 'teaser' that kindle sends as a preview---i refuse to pay inflated prices for the reasons i explained, therfore will wait before i read the entire work---this is not the writer but publishers greed i believe---ss

Not only do you "shout" by using all capital letters - that's rude - but ou don't even review the book, which is the thing one is meanto to do in reviews. Additionally, your entire premise is downright wrong. In 1987, the average retail price for a CD was $14.99. Today it is $12.99. So they have gone done in price. What's more, if you factor inflation into it, that $14.99 1987 CD should cost $30.52 today to have the same impact on one's wallet. In fact, today's $12.99 CD is only worth about $6.38 in 1987 money. So any way you slice it, CD prices have dropped dramatically. Vinyl, which used to be much cheaper than CDs is now much more. So, obviously, you are clueless.
