There's one on eBay right now for $340.

That may not mean anything, but amazon has no copies available, and it is scarce to nonexistent at other places (Abebooks, etc.)

OP: It's wonderful to have it all in one place, but I can't help but point out that if you're a Genii subscriber, you already have access to "The Vernon Touch" :D

A seller asking for $340 isn't the same as buyers paying $340.

A copy sold on July 3 for $31.

More tellingly, a copy failed to sell on July 18 for the asking price of $60.
