I was discouraged by the fact that the pre-order pricing at Amazon and Barnes & Noble had gone up to about $57 from its low of $45. But I am told by the publisher that it is not uncommon for the price to rise right before release, and for cuts to come back after shipments arrive. I am therefore hopeful that the book will come down again. I'm going to begin selling some of my copies, when they arrive, at a loss for $39. Should be in about a few weeks.
