Professional books in particular technical never been low cost, in print it's easy to understand, you have a book to finish, translate and print. The circulation of such books are usually in the thousands, not hundreds of thousands. Overall I am always satisfied and give 500-1500 rubles I was never sorry, especially when the book is held in the hand and have good cover and lay down on delancie to read. On the other hand take what some popular fiction with a large circulation and cost 100-200 rubles.

In my opinion the main criterion of the cost of the book is the circulation, how much would the book not have been spent if it has a circulation of 100 000 it will be much cheaper the same book with a circulation of 1 000 copies. Yes, I remember about the delivery and everything else that adds to the book value.

Take for example a book Selling texts Bernadsky it is worth 468 roubles in ozone, circulation 3000
www.ozon.ru/context/detail/id/7600685/
In electronic form, it costs 250 rubles
www.imobilco.ru/books/-/642621/

Why is it so expensive?
I don't have to deliver it, it does not consume space in the warehouse, it is not necessary to print on paper, it would not require a decorated shelf in the store. I just need to download it. Surely all the above is only 218 rubles for the book, and its cost at a premium of 250? Costs for translator and editors for books are quite low, the authors may get from publishing their 10-20% as in the paper books.

Isn't it time for this world to come to their senses? Especially publishers.
To download pirated copy will not, but reading this book will not.

Mmm, in a capitalist society, the price of goods is not determined by the labor and cost, and only exceptionally in demand and a conjuncture of the market. It costs 250 rubles because buy it for 250 rubles. Stop buying, prices will fall.

Ie, a book that will teach you to earn money should be free? And the 250R — it's a penny, you will see a good technical book on Amazon, they can cost hundreds of dollars.
\r
These books are the result of the author's works, and I don't mean the labor for writing the book, and the fact that in order to be able to write a good professional book, one should spend a year of your life (or even decades).
\r
If you think the 250R is too expensive, you can spend a few years of HIS life, to save the money.

You know the "printing" business from the inside.
Believe me, they are barely the cost of production of books cover. Normally it is possible to print books only when there is a subsidy. Or Khan.

Greed. Well, as mentioned above, demand.
Rare technical literature (paper, of course — why buy e-books, I don't understand) generally costs exorbitant money.

Regardless of the method of distribution to the author (=>to the publisher in real life) it would be necessary to recover costs + profit. So free or cheap it's not beneficial for anyone to do, of course. But otherwise then?
\r
From increased circulation and reduction in price does not necessarily get the benefit, most likely just a loss. The publishers, too, are not fools :) Circulation is calculated because of the potential demand. Special/technical literature it is, obviously, not very high.

100 rubles worth of Bank of toner, which is enough for ~4tys. pages. Get 2.5 pennies of toner on the page. Amortization cartridge standing 2tys.R. and which you can print if only 15 thousand. pages (I and 25 thousand pages on one cartridge printed) will be 13.3 pennies per page. Amortization of the printer that is ~5T. p., we assume equal 5000/100000=5 cents per page. Total, without the cost of paper obtained ~21 penny per page.
Paper (newspaper, of course, white dense to print books uncomfortable, very hard page to work) is worth ~500 50p per sheet = 10 cents per page.
Total, print the four pages of the book (2 pages per sheet, both sides) will cost us 21*2+10=52 kopecks, i.e. the cost of printing 1 page of a book is equal to 13 cents.
Total: the book block 300 pages will cost us in 39 rubles.
Endpapers used for heavy paper (e.g., Whatman) — I can't remember how much it costs, I still have some old stock. Let the owner leave the ruble will get 40P.
The cover is cardboard + leatherette (I also have stocks still available), let it will cost you 10p for 1 book.
Total: the cost of home printing a 300-page books = 50 rubles!
The cost of printing 500-page book = ~72.
