Curious about the money?
My original plan was to make the book free once the production costs were covered, but once the COVID-19 pandemic forced everyone to stay home, it seemed like freeing the book was the right thing to do. So I uploaded the full text PDFs to the Open Science Framework and Perusall.com in March of 2020. But some people still bought the print edition: At the end of 2020, royalties from U.S. sales of the book totaled $10,362, so the production costs were officially covered. Thanks, Everyone!
