  2. Ten Pounds
     
  3. For what it's worth: I bought a copy of this book a while back, second hand from the t'interweb in good condition, for about £50.

    This book, unread, and signed is worth a great deal more than that!

    The book is well written, and a good read.

    We'll be plugging this auction at Tankfest at the weekend. It's not often people get the chance to buy this book, let alone an unread and signed copy!
