I had thought about buying the electronic book a good time ago, but I didn't 
buy, because there was no "get the printed version cheaper if you buy the 
electronic version beforehand" option. 

Maybe you could ask your publisher kindly to become a bit more realistic, so 
people begin to get accomodated to the electronic sales. 

The sad thing is: 

Rapid GUI Programming with Python and Qt: The Definitive Guide to PyQt 
Programming - Retail Price: USD $49.99

RCBoth  Print Book and Online Access Bundle - USD $67.48
RCOnline  Online Access Only -   USD $34.99
RCPrint  Print Book Only  -  USD $34.99

No chance I'd buy both under these conditions. 

Even though I'd have really liked helping in beta-reading the book (I became 
accustomed to always doing a bug-search on any book I read - even on 
fiction :) ). 

Best wishes,

Unpolitisch sein
Heißt politisch sein
Ohne es zu merken.
