Even among the best books, there are many choices. If you really feel there is only one book that will do for you, by all means, pay whatever is demanded. I'm not telling you what do. But you seem rather baffled the choices other people make, with your comment "I can't figure out how people reason when they have these opinions." While not just any book is interchangable with any other, there is no shortage of quality books that I can choose from if I don't like the pricing of any one particular book.
