StevenCrook has it for US$90 (yes, ninety dollars).

Why don't these small-print-run academic books come out in Kindle format?

Careful what you wish for. Routledge often does Kindle editions of these kinds of books. For example: ... B0053D6FGW
Hardcover: $148. Kindle: $112 (no, that's not a typo: one hundred and twelve). The budget rental price: $51.41. Absurd, and infuriating - Routledge has got plenty of academic titles that I'd happily buy if they were in the $10-15 range, but at $112, is ANYONE buying them? Heck, at that price I don't even order it for my university library, because I feel guilty about asking them to spend that kind of money.

The number of megapixels does not determine a camera's picture quality; that's a marketing myth. The sensor size is far more important. (Use Google to find it. For example, search for "sensor size Nikon D90.")
