By Popular Demand: a Kindle Edition

Hummel's Three Laws and WWII ... UC Tuition: The Revolt of the ...

From Poverty to Prosperity is available on Amazon's Kindle. I appreciate the publisher's responsiveness on this. Publishers have tended to think of Kindle editions as like paperbacks--you don't come out with one right away in order to avoid cannibalizing hardback sales. I think that the analogy between Kindle edition and paperback edition is flawed.

In any case, our publisher gave in to popular demand, and I am happy about that.

I don't understand that attitude with publishers. Why not release the Kindle edition immediately, at a price near that of the hardcover? Then, months later, reduce the price of the Kindle edition to near a paperback edition. Seems simple enough.

Woot, I was waiting to buy it till the kindle edition came out.

I think they should bundle the book with the Kindle edition, because people want the physical book for posterity with the ease of reading it on the Kindle.

Any word on an audiobook? Arnold's sultry EconTalk voice would do wonders for audiobook sales!

Thanks, Arnold. Now that I own a Kindle, I don't read books on paper.

Thanks! They also released an edition for Sony Reader, which is good for us Betamax devotees.

Bought it! Thanks.

Is EconLog ever going to be on the Kindle?
