The online book will con­tinue to be freely avail­able. The print ver­sion of the book is intended to help fund the devel­op­ment of the OTexts plat­form.

The price is US$45, £27 or €35.

Com­pare that to $195 for my pre­vi­ous fore­cast­ing text­book, $150 for Fildes and Ord, or $182 for Gonzalez-​​Rivera. No mat­ter how good the books are, the prices are absurdly high.

OTexts is intended to be a dif­fer­ent kind of pub­lisher — all our books are online and free, those in print will be rea­son­ably priced.

The online ver­sion will con­tinue to be updated reg­u­larly. The print ver­sion is a snap­shot of the online ver­sion today. We will release a new print edi­tion occa­sion­ally, no more than annu­ally and only when the online ver­sion has changed enough to war­rant a new print edition.

We are plan­ning an offline elec­tronic ver­sion as well. I’ll announce it here when it is ready.
