A Rationally Optimistic Price?

Self-Discrediting... Data Bleg on Post-WWII Transit...

A reader alerted me that the current Kindle-edition price of The Rational Optimist is zero. At that price, you simply must download it.

Thank you Arnold, this just resulted in me buying a Kindle!

Beyond Amazon, don't forget to check out Project Gutenberg, Google Books, and of course, the "Portable Library Liberty" for thousands of free ebooks to stock it up. Some, like Google Books, would require converting to the Kindle format, but it would be worth the effort.

I'd already purchased the hardcover, but seeing as I subsequently purchased the new-generation Kindle, well, let's just say the price is right.

The time cost of reading it, of course, isn't zero, but hopefully it will prove worth it.

Looks like $16 to me, maybe I missed the window?

I just checked it, and it's still free. Look for it on the top-100 free list; it's currently #12.

I found out yesterday!!!

I was going to buy it anyway.
I was amazed by the 100% discount.

I was going to email you but it is good to see that somebody has already found out and the news is out there..

Darn, I caught this too late. It no longer appears to be free.
