Default iPod Audiobook

I'm not sure this is the best place to put this, but I'm wanting to buy the audio book, "The 50th Law" on iTunes. When I look it up on the internet, it appears to be $9.99 however on my iTunes account it shows up as $26.99. I'm thinking this might be the good ol Aus tax.

I'm looking for a kind TOGger from OS that might be able to help me out. Unless of course it's the same price, in which case, please let me know. Obviously I'd pay for it. If you can help me out, please shoot me a pm or reply to this post.

Cheers

Rage, have you ever used Audible?

I know there are many many podcasts such as Twit (this week in tech) that offer 2 free downloads (books) for a sign up and if you leave, you keep the downloads. May be more attractive than paying for it.

I've done Audible through the free trial, and had no problem canceling. I haven't used them since Amazon bought them though.

I hope you know it's not 50 cent narrating the audio book (i have it in my collection).

I dont rate it highly either, worth about 5 bucks imho. Running time is 8 hours.

LMAO! I realise that No, it was a book that was recommended to me as kinda like an inspirational book. If it's not that good, I might give it a miss Thanks for the feedback.

i could sum up the book like this: "If your in a sticky situation, do what a crack dealing gangster would do". Well, more like having the confidence, the schtick not to get ripped off, never back down, do things your own way etc. Gives examples from Fiddys life, along with the usual historical quotations you find in these type of books.

I think i might have to go and have another listen to it actually. If Fiddy did narrate it then it would much more awesome.
