Kobo Pricing

Got an email from Kobo recommending several books one of which was Hyperspace by physicist Michio Kaku for a mere $53. You can get it on iBooks for $14.99 and a pBook version from Amazon for $9. What is Kobo thinking? Are they in Hyperspace?

I'd say the publisher must have made a typo when entering the price.

The price I see for this book at Kobo New Zealand is $NZ17.29 (~$US12.79): http://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebo...th-dimension-1

Why do you think it was 'recommended'?

It's the #1 selling book in Nonfiction > Science & Nature > Mathematics.
