The Empathy Gap (the book): Ordering 13 Replies Update: the book is available as follows, at £19.95 from Waterstones, and at £25 from Amazon UK.
I’m in the U.S., but there are good UK & Australian MRA sites I read and I ran across this page with your book and I want it, but it’s $34 US and I don’t have that much. I would humbly suggest that you make a Kindle version. I could have bought that.
Just a thought, because it seems like an important book that everybody should have and many more (like me) in the U.S. too could get it, if it was a $10 (give or take) Kindle book.
Agree totally with Dave. A kindle version would help get this book in the hands of those who might be interested. It is not that difficult to accomplish considering you already have the printed version for sale. Let me know if you have questions. I might be able to help a bit.
I’ve got the message, people! First thing in the New Year I’ll get to it. Thanks for your kind offer, Tom, I might be in touch.
Yesterday I picked up my copy, ordered from a local Waterstones shop where it still costs only £19.95. They said to allow two months delivery time due to it being print-on-demand, but it actually arrived in two weeks.
I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this book was printed on good quality matt white paper and uses full colour charts and diagrams throughout.
I also noticed that on Amazon UK at present (08/09/19) it has been ‘reduced’ by 20% from a RRP of £25.00 and so can now be yours in under a week for a mere…£19.95! Don’t you just love marketing?
My rrp is £19.95, but Amazon would not initially supply it at that price (other than with a ridiculous delivery, designed to put people off) because their profit margin was too small – so their price went up to around £25. It came as a surprise to me that they’d put the price down again – but I’m guessing it’s because Waterstones supply at £19.95 and deliver in about 8 days.
Collected my copy from Waterstones yesterday. I think the book is scholarly contribution to the debate and a valuable source of hard data to refute frequently heard arguments. I can’t imagine how many hours of work must have gone into this book.
I have written to the Guardian asking them to review it. I don’t imagine they will. If they do, can they avoid the usual cliches about fragile males, entrenched privilege and misogyny?
The book was written in almost exactly one year, though the preceding 5 years of blogging was a substantial springboard.
I ordered a second copy from Waterstones five days ago (having lent my first copy out) and have just been informed it is now being dispatched. They are still selling the book for £19.95.
I ordered from Waterstones and have my copy already.
I can’t say I’ve managed to read it all yet, though!
Oh, that’s good news (that you’ve got it, that is)
I ordered from Amazon and today they told me the bad news, so I have now ordered from Waterstones, fingers crossed. It must be said though, that by all accounts even at £24.71 the book is worth every penny.
Just received my copy today through Amazon. It looks spectacular!
Excellent – pleased to hear it.
