The cost of motorsport books

Here's a rather stark illustration of US/UK pricing differentials.

The Autocourse 60 Years of Grand Prix Motor Racing is available on Amazon.co.uk for a whopping £44.96. Exactly the same book is also available on Amazon.com for the rather more affordable sum of $41.97, which equals £26.58 at current exchange rates.

There is, it seems, a somewhat different pricing strategy in different markets...

And in Australia it's $114.95 AUD online from the major local chain, or $65.88 from the best online store. From Amazon US it's $59.95 with shipping (not sure if that's USD, $1 AUD = $1.03 USD). And local retailers wonder why we are ordering from overseas in increasing numbers.
