    Just looked... her book has been REDUCED IN PRICE from $35.00 to $19.02 on Amazon.com.. Gosh, who would've thunk it would be an abysmal failure? Oh... ya.. Everyone on Earth except Robin and the publisher.

    This is why real authors can't make a living anymore.

    No way any retailer was ever going to be offering that pile of shit for $35, it wouldn't sell at $3.50.

    95% of sales will be to dummy buyers set up by Quivers and Buchwald just so it will crack the bestseller list before being dumped to the bargain bin.

    $35.00 was the original price on Amazon..if you go to Amazon right now you will see that. I guess Amazon figured when zero units sold they better reduce the price ASAP! ;)

    Right, but I'm pretty sure Amazon posts an unreal "suggested retail price" for things just so their price looks like a huge discount by comparison. I'll stand corrected if it ever was actually selling for $35, but I doubt that's the case.

    I wonder if Robin will try something shady to make some extra bucks off this trainwreck. Like donating a few thousand copies to "charity" and taking a deduction based on the inflated original price.

    Maybe the 15 Foundation will buy some too, and then donate the books to some lucky schools.

    Look at any random relatively new book on Amazon. They're all REDUCED IN PRICE by close to half. :c

    I just went for a ride on the net.. http://www.barnesandnoble.com, http://www.bookadda.com, http://www.walmart.com and http://www.allbookstores.com all show a list price of $35.00. But not a single one of them is selling it for that.. they have all reduced the price to under $20.00.

    Dude, that's what Amazon does to almost ALL books! They buy books for 40% of list price and then sell it at 50% off and collect small margins. No conspiracy here. Just scumbag Amazon tactics.

    i haven't heard her talking about it on the show and she hasn't promoted it anywhere, why would you expect it to be selling now?

    Why scumbag? Sounds like free market competition. Is lower prices for consumers a bad thing? If a bookstore is less efficient than mail order, why should we go to the less efficient brick/mortar bookstore?

    They're destroying the competition. Once they kill off all of the ma & pa stores and other large competitors, they'll jack up the prices. Then you'll see why monopolies are bad.
