second-hand books

Prices rising in the second hand market

Every now and again I look at second hand books on Conductive Education available via the internet and after seeing Andrew’s posting yesterday, decided to see what I could find.

I was amazed to see a copy of Hari and Akos’ Conductive Education for over £2,000!  This morning I checked it again and the price has been revised to £302.76 plus £11.39 postage to be sent from US to UK.

Still a large amount.

Other copies are available for £40 plus. More realistic, I would think.

On the other hand, some titles e.g. Conductive Education: a system for overcoming motor disorder, or Dina  are going for pennies.

JustBooks searches a variety of second-hand book sites and this produces an interesting collection at a variety of prices. Hari and Akos are included up to £3,000 + on Amazon in France and Italy.

Is anyone will to pay such big sums?  I doubt it.
