It appears that we only need one or two more bids to get this one to $4.  Any help is appreciated.

I just noticed this is 85 pages long. Is it really worth paying $4 for 85 pages that is available for free on the net? So much stuff is getting out of CP now there is no time to read it all and the total price (all added together) adds up. I know it is not worth $5 for a book about a fictional apostle. Perhaps it is time to be more selective. Of course, YMMV

that's almost 5 cents per page for a public domain work. I might consider .02/pg Indifferent

85 pages?  I immediately thought "Ph.D thesis". And it turns out that's exactly what it is.

Just because something is a "Ph.D thesis" doesn't necessarily make it better. In fact the water may be evaporated out. It may be good. It may be free. Of course some folks have lots of money and time. As always YMMV - let the world turn.

No, generally a thesis is not better.  They can be hard to read because of academic rules which make them stilted and overly filled with citations, plus they tend to be too short for a book.
