"One would think "for the cost of $8000, one better be able to do rocket science after reading." Well, I have even better news. After I closed this book, I realized I had gained the knowledge to spontaneously teleport! That`s right! I don`t even need this junky telepod anymore."

On the verge of sounding like a teen on a Hollywood drama, is this for real?
I mean, the combination of reviews, price and the fact that it says shipping time is 1-3 months, I would go ahead and assume its a joke. However, I believe there genuinely are people out there that dumb!

LmFAO @ the reviews!

`I have a table that wobbles, one leg is a bit short, tried all the usual stuff but they are all the wrong thickness. Saw this and figured it will probably adjust it`s thickness to create the perfect surface. I am so annoyed, it`s too thick! So now my table is slanted and my breakfast slides off, what a joke.

Why 1 star? I saw R.R. Gupta walking down the street the other day, I threw the darn thing at him in disgust "IT MISSED" it`s completely useless! `

In case it doesn`t make it:
So my wife and I just smoked a bowl full of pot and started tripping on a handful of shrooms and after we spoke with God, we must have wound up on the computer. That`s the last time I ever go onto Amazon.com while tripping on hallucinogens! We must have thought that the title was something that would be of great fun to us since it was talking about the DASQ forecast and we we belong to the Deleware Association for the Sexually Quirky. Much to our disappointment when this $15,000 guide showed up in our mailbox talking about computer software nonsense. Beh. It`s a boring read folks. It starts off slow, the characters are very two-dimensional, and the thin plot is quite predicable when the grandmother is revealed to be the true computer programmer and psycho killer in Chapter 6. But, making lemons from lemonade, we did have an outstanding nine person sexual orgy on the book making the sexual gratification of owning it far outvalue the content of the book.

Kane, thanks for the link to the Darwin book. I`ve been looking for that and expected to pay at least $500,000. It was a steal at $403,000.

I know nothing about the other books but I`m sure that there are people out there who need them and would pay that much. They`re probably very valuable tools to the right people.

Hmm.. I may have to look through my lab at uni tomorrow to see if we have a copy of this :P

I`d imagine the reason it cost so much is due to the costs for the people who had to repeatidly do NMR`s on Si to find this data out. Is the only justification for charging that much. It looks like a lot but companys will spend millions on market research which is essentially just a book of data too.

-_- I really hope he was being sarcastic, or advertising the book. Paying $7,000 for information you can probably find for free on wikipedia is just... well it`s not value that`s for sure.

"Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is based on the fact that certain nuclei exhibit a magnetic moment, oriented by a magnetic field, and absorb characteristic frequencies in the radiofrequency part of the spectrum. The spectral lines of the nuclei are highly influenced by the chemical environment, i.e. the structure and interaction of the molecules. NMR is now the leading technique and a powerful tool for the investigation of the structure and interaction of molecules. The present Landolt-Börnstein volume III/35 "Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Data" is therefore of major interest to all scientists and engineers who intend to use NMR to study the structure and the binding of molecules. Volume III/35 "NMR-Data" is divided into several subvolumes and parts. Subvolume III/35A contains the nuclei B-11 and P-31. More nuclei will be presented later."

So basically, its a book about hard nipples?
