Default High Price of Channel Chops

The book called Photoshop Channel Chops is getting up there in price. On Amazon U.S., the cheapest one is $99. The next one up costs $142.49, and the most expensive one is $499. To sell for these prices it must have reached the status of legendary book.

Maybe the authors could talk the publisher into doing a updated version. The only other channels book I've heard of is Kelby's. I haven't had a look at it, though.

I just checked mine and it's in excellent shape, even though it is next to a window that is always open. But I think I should move it to a safer location. Maybe in a few years I can use it as a down payment on a condo.
