One of those two books is an interesting book by a serious author.

The other is by "Ballet dancer turned defense specialist" Fox News security analyst Allison Barrie. Don't get your hopes up too high.
But what if a defense specialist turned ballet dancer wrote a book on the Bolshoi?  ;D
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.

I vote too expensive but sometimes you see a paper bound cheaper version released later.

Defending the Arsenal: Why America's Nuclear Modernization Still Matters

Better  :D

Update on "Defending the Arsenal" I contacted one of the authors about the price and the need to reach a wider audience with a book on this crucially important topic. He agreed and said he would be contacting his co-author and the publisher to see/request if a cheaper version could be published.

Wait and see I guess.

160 pages priced at $149.95?  Even for hardcover that's a disconnect.

Get close to 800 pages but still out of my price range

This looks fantastic - I don't see anywhere to preorder it yet unfortunately, just a Fonthill press release, but as soon as I can I'm putting some money down. Can't wait to see what it says about the Daimler-Benz Schnellstbombenträger, Trägerflugzeug and Selbstvernichter, or Schnellbomber, Trägerflugzeug and SO Flugzeug as Focke-Wulf insisted on calling them in Kurzbeschreibung Nr. 28!
