 Who is the Street Strategist
and why should I buy his books?

If you have to ask,
you probably shouldn't buy...

but can you really afford not having the complete series by missing a single volume? 

 

..........................................................................................................................................  

  As quoted from Vol. 1...

"Trust me, it is a far greater redeeming experience for a stranger to discover the Street Strategist than for the Street Strategist to redeem a stranger.
Eventually, mustering all his marketing wizardry, the Street Strategist conjured up this book’s unique selling proposition: a gift of last choice.
Perhaps, the only logical rationale for buying this book is as a gift of last choice to a person who has everything and expects nothing.
Rendered as a gift of last choice, this book is an object of exchange, rather than an object of thought; an object of token rather than an object of value; an object of memory rather than an object of substance.
In this manner, the book carries no duty to justify its cover price, and no responsibility to justify any unwarranted investment in reading time and effort."

Notes on book dedication: Suppose you are James and you want to give a book instead of necktie to your boss Tommy without appearing sycophantic for his bday on April 7. The dedication would read:

 

"April 7, 2014
Dear Tommy,
This book is a special birthday gift for you
from my very good friend James.
Happy bday from both of us.
Cheers,
Thads"

...............................................................................................

 Notes on pricing:
1. In general, book printing is an economies of scale game. The first hurdle of printing cost is the cost of the film printing. Each black page must have a film, and each color page needs four films. Unless, you print and sell 10,000 copies, your book will have to priced higher than average book being sold in the stores. But then how many buyers can you realistically expect?

Of course, if you sell 10 million copies like Harry Potter, that's another thing.

I wish I could sell you my books are only around P200 each... but sorry I cannot.

2. The Strategy Myopia published in 2002 has only a few copies left. It has been mass produced on Swedish Enso creamy paper and published in Hong Kong. Volume discounts (at least 5 copies) are available.

3. The other books are "printed on demand" and therefore more expensive. The new volumes are also "hard bound" (unlike the softbound Vol 1), with printed color jacket.

The hard-bound books are suitable as "collector's items," and are valued for their autographs and nice covers (not for the contents.. he he he).

The cover (clothed in high quality suede) and color jacket (which is matte or glossy laminated) alone cost more than P250. The printing cost is also expensive because expensive US color paper is being used and because there is no economy of scale.

For your own reference, you may estimate P3 per page of printing on paper including the cost of the paper. Even good xerox nowadays cost P2 per page. Obviously, "mass produced" books have lower "cost per page" (in contrast to "print on demand" books). Volume discounts are available but not much. The prices of Certiorari Conundrum and Perfection of Contracts are specially high because their contents are very special.

4. As you can see, I hardly make money on each book. It's just my joy that people collect them for whatever purpose.

(Try laser printing the free PDF file of Hyperwage Theory and you can see how it drains your electricity and laser toner, and depreciates your printer, and then have it hard covered with your color jacket, not mention the waste of your personal time during the back to back page printing process. This is the reason many "print on demand" companies charge a higher rate for print on demand books. )

5. The shipping cost for volume orders will be reduced. Instead of P100 each book, an order of 5 books costs only a total of P200 for shipping. We will give shipping estimates for volume orders.

6. The hardbound books are compiled as books in 2007 but were written as individual essays or articles from 2002-2007.

7. In the meantime, we are looking for opportunities for the books to be mass produced (maybe newsprint paperback).

8. At least as of today, you have the chance to own these books and decorate your shelves with them.

9. These books are not available anywhere else except by mail order.

10. If you order now, you could be included in the batch for delivery by first week of December.
