I stopped buying engineering and higher mathematics texts my sophomore year and they were in excess of $300 each.

That price is kinda par for the course for my college textbooks, some of which I'm sure are far more useless than any good brewing book.

I'm a sucker for books on brewing, but I still can't see myself buying it anytime soon. With so little to go on, I really have no real proof it's any better than the myriad of books already in my collection.

Me too. I'm a sucker for any good book. Just not that big of a sucker......

My physics textbook has been the most expensive so far, at $395. But, it did cover three classes, thought that was almost ten years ago.
Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

My physics textbook was the best one I ever bought. Still use it in REAL LIFE to this day.

I had a rough time with physics 1, though statics and dynamics remedied that quickly. Physics 2 and 3 were a blast though.

Sadly the only thing I use daily from them was memorizing the speed of light and some of the wave things. Period/frequency/duty cycle/etc. I'm still just a tech though, I'm sure as I learn more I'll be able to apply it to my day job..)

My anatomy & physiology, bio, chem books were pricey, but I bought used and never that much back in late 80's early 90's.

Xray and other imaging books were crazy expensive, too. And big surprise, the most expensive ones were the ones you could never find used.

Medical books and pharmacology books are expensive beyond belief.

Yep, and yet most of my profs only tested off of lecture notes. I definitely made liberal use of my college bookstore's "return for full credit before drop date" policy back in the day.

Problem with one (or more) of the books is needing to learn to read German first. Not terribly feasible for most working people with families.

Kunze is available in English.  I haven't found a better price that 149 Euros.

is this considered a good price?  man, unless a little German dude jumps out of the book and starts brewing my beer, that seems expensive.

With my luck that little guy would be an Apfelwein specialist.
