Will can free his own damn self.

Apparently the reason doesn't involve being gullible enough to shell out $10 for a 54 page ebook.

Pay a Farker to hear their opinion?  Oh, Total Farker.  Now it makes sense.

shiat, 54 pages of rehash and he wants $10. I'm gonna bookmark that and see if he gets in the top 50k. I might be in the wrong business, selling actual books written and published by serious people.

You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice.
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill;
I will choose a path that's clear-
I will choose Free Will.

Seriously. You could buy two whole months of TF for that!

Sounds like a self help book disguised as science.
 
2013-07-01 04:10:48 PM  
54 pages? It'd take a few pages just to deal with plainly explaining the various definitions of free will, I don't understand how you can cram all that plus a DIY CBT session group into that small a space.
 
2013-07-01 04:10:58 PM  
Oh, and I forgot to add my normal comments to derail any free will debate...

I know I don't have free will because I cannot mentally teleport myself. Therefore my will is not free and has limits and probably patterns.

I can also screw up a discussion on the existence of a perfect god versus no god by offering my observation that there could be a half competent technician god, like The Doctor. If you pay attention to the canon, as current, the Doctor created this universe as a projection from the Tardis. Ergo Deus Ex Machina.

After reading a good portion of the preview, I have to agree.

It could also use a bit of editing. I've seen worse, but still, for ten bucks a copy...

Free will is great, but money puts food on the table.
 
2013-07-01 04:20:07 PM  
Free Will?   Yeah right.   If that damned fool killer whale would stop getting himself captured, we wouldn't have this problem.

I disagree, I am pretty sure choice and inability aren't the same. The freedom to choose within the confines of a system is still freedom by definition. When applying that to a deity, though, it fails and doesn't resolve the problem of evil for the simple fact that if a deity were all powerful, knowing and benevolent then said deity would be capable of creating a world with free will that didn't include evil. So free will can logically exist in that sense, but only if the creating entity is lacking in one of the all-knowing/powerful/loving qualities.

Free will isn't good will.
Free will means you can decide not to drink the lovely vodak.
Good Will means a place where you can buy slightly broken things, and ill-fitting clothes which smell funny.
Glad I could clear that up for ya.


/Buy the damned book already!

$10 for 54 pages?

Look, I'm not one to bash other authors on Fark... in fact, I'm one of the ones who is deadset on helping, promoting, and defending us because we generally get a bad rap.

But $10 for 54 pages? That is... just... wow.

134 pages on my novella (Kindle version) and I only charge $3 for the Kindle version. I reserved the $10 tag for the paperback (which is 152 pages because yay formatting). I don't get Kindle authors who charge a high amount for small return or even over trade paperback prices. Yes, the story/information may be worth the $10 but it isn't an entry price. You aren't Stephen King or *shudder* Stephenie Oscar Meyer Wiener.

Get your head out of the clouds and price for the market, not your bank account.
 
2013-07-01 04:42:54 PM  
Is it due to their lib nature?
 
2013-07-01 04:47:01 PM  
Apparently the author gave up a good chunk of free will by choosing to publish on Kindle.  Now the book cannot be published on any other format.  Booo!

/Choose Kobo, which supports independent bookstores.

Yes it can.

If the author is enrolled in KDP (which they don't appear to be because I don't see the "Get this free via Kindle Lending Library" link anywhere) then they cannot have another ebook version available for 90 days. If the author elects to de-enroll the ebook in KDP for the next cycle, and forever more, then they can have an ebook elsewhere. In essence: don't enroll in KDP and you can have an ebook version ANYWHERE you like. Enroll in KDP and you are stuck for at least 90 days.
 
2013-07-01 04:59:18 PM  
Also, KDP doesn't prevent paperback/hardcover versions of the same book from being sold. It only applies to ebook versions.

This work was meant to convey, in simple terms, ideas and theories meant as a starting point for further scientific inquiry and discovery.

So... um, I'm confused. I guess... call me when this scientific inquiry has been performed and there's something worth $10 to me?

"TFer's new book explains why Farkers are superior"

The first time I glanced by I thought the k (no, not in 'Farkers') was a bs...  'Book' makes more sense.

I bet Subby was one of those kids who would set up a lemonade stand and charge $5 for a dixie cup full and then wonder why only his parents bought any from him.
