I noticed something new on the Amazon page for my book Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire today when I popped onto their web site.
What was it?
Amazon has introduced a rental option for textbooks.
It makes sense that my book is part of the program because Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire is being used as a text book as part of innovation courses at Creighton and other fine institutions.
Professors can get evaluation copies here from my publisher John Wiley & Sons.
Here is a screenshot:
BUT, one thing that doesn’t make sense is that the rental price of $22.22 is only slightly less than the discounted sale price of $22.53 that Amazon charges for a new copy of my book. Which is a pretty good discount off the retail price of $34.95.
Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire makes a great bulk book buy for organizations seeking to establish a common language of innovation or to identify and remove one or more barriers to innovation they might be struggling against.
I believe in the content so much that I’ve made a downloadable free sample chapter available for everyone.
If you are in the United States and interested in making a bulk purchase of this five-star book, please contact Hooks Book Events – an independent minority women-owned business in Washington D.C.
If you are outside the United States, you might want to check out 800-CEO-Read or you can get FREE shipping to 90 countries is available from Book Depository.
And what better way to get the most value out of a bulk purchase of my book than to invite me to come deliver an innovation keynote or workshop? 🙂
