I guess it all comes down to how many will give it a go at the lower price who wouldn't even look twice at it for the 10.99 price. One other thing this will do is show the benefit of promotion since I bet most people would never have heard of the book without the author trying to do something different to get it noticed.
Personally, I would have given the book a try, but like one of the commenters on the blog post, I have decided to vote with my wallet these days when it comes to geo-restricted books, if a publisher doesn't want to sell me a particular book then I am not going to waste my time getting round restrictions and will just take my money elsewhere as there are always plenty of books to read.
