Damn, should have gone with the kindle edition! I don't recall it being an option when I did my christmas shopping a couple of months ago.
For what it's worth, when I picked up the 2nd ed. -
Paperback book : $39.83 AUD ($37ish USD back in Oct) add shipping and currency conversion, up over $50 USD.
Making it easily the most I've ever paid for a paperback book. But I understand physical books have overheads, it's impossible to build scale on a (presumably) small print run, etc.
Anyway, I think pricing is the least of the issues here, I'd have been just as disappointed and written the same review had I picked it up for $5.
