I agree with SDMomChef. While I think suing for the time spent reading the book is ridiculous, I am glad that the publisher and Frey might have to pay for their deceits, and refund people's money. The price of the book to individuals isn't the point - the fact that Frey and RandomHouse made millions off of fraud is. And as I understood it, Random House was only planning on refunding money to people who bought the book directly from them.
When you start to cook, as when you begin to live, you think that the point is to improve the technique until you end up with something perfect, and that the reason you haven’t been able to break the cycle of desire and disillusion is that you haven’t yet mastered the rules. Then you grow up, and you learn that that’s the game.
