Will Anyone Actually Buy This Book?

Here's the book...

Which looks interesting. Then I turned it over to look at the price...

£163.99? One hundred freaking sixty fracking how much?

Statistics books are peculiarly over-priced compared with mathematics texts, which are still cheaper than physics or engineering texts. Maybe maths books are cheaper than regular academic books. But along with food technology texts, statistics books do seem to be pricey. 

I don't know if it contains £163.99's worth of useful techniques and insight, but if it does, it's an exception.
