The Price of My Ego

A few years ago, my friend Jonathan and I killed some time at Redmond Town Center waiting for a movie to start by having a competition in the technical book section of Borders, seeing who could find the largest number of books by people we knew.  Jonathan won with the trump card of finding a book where he was thanked in the acknowledgements.

These days, I think I could give him a run for this money.  I have an acknowledgements thank, and now, due to some idle but creative Googling, I’ve discovered that I’m apparently featured as some sort of case study in this book: "Universities and Globalization: To Market, To Market" This, of course, begs the question: Is it worth $120 to my ego and curiosity to own this book? 

I’m thinking…no.
