Why is this book not available as hard cover? Even today with modern digital printing services available, books with many color photos are expensive to produce. This book comes with some 300 high quality photos, most of them in color, and would cost retail as hardcover version around US$ 70 (or the corresponding amount in £ or €), which the author finds excessive. That is why the choice to offer the more reasonable to produce soft cover option. FREE BONUS:
