In May of 2011 we published our book through Usenix as part of the short topics series. When this book was released as an ebook, shortly after the paper version, it originally was more expensive than the paper copy. I contacted the people responsible within Usenix and asked them if they could do anything about it. As Frank and I went through the same procedure for our own book I explained what some of the benefits were of using a $ 9.99 price and Usenix told me they would discuss it internally. I just received the great news that the book has a new price of just 9.99 and is available on Kindle through the Amazon store. I hope everyone appreciates the effort we’ve put in to it and the fact that Usenix decided to lower the price to $ 9.99!
Here are the details:
