Rumsfeld eBook Costs More Than Hardcover Sale Price

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has a new memoir coming out on Penguin’s Sentinel HC imprint, and the eBook will likely cost you more than the hardcover.

The book centers on Rumsfeld’s career from his first political job on Capitol Hill during the Eisenhower administration through his work at the Pentagon under George W. Bush. His motto: “If you are not criticized, you may not be doing much.”

Amazon and Barnes & Noble both have the books available for preorder in advance of the February 8th release of the book. The hardcover is on sale from the $36 list price for $19.72 at Barnes & Noble and $19.92 at Amazon. Both the Kindle store and the Nook store are preselling the title for $19.99.

Is this too much for an eBook?
