That does not seems true to me. Even now heavily researched books like academic books are not selling with a profit but are payed for in other ways like people having academic positions.
And I would also think that people would write books about things they love avd these books would be like heavily researched books.
Or did you mean some other kind of books? Do you have any example of the kind of book that would not be written?
