So I checked out Rudin's Analysis book for fun

    ... the book is tiny ... (sure it has lots of advanced material) but wow ... $150 new on Amazon, for something you could lose to your couch? crazy.

    I should go into the textbook business.

    Rudin is one of the best author's I've read, though that list is pretty short. It's probably almost worth all that money.
