Textbooks and The Teaching Company

Regardless of how it is either in U.S. or whatever (because they are all screwy), if we ask ourselves a question: “How would you address this text book problem from a business point of view, so that you are both solving a real problem and making money by doing that?” we should at least see one aspect rightaway: that the printing costs are not really a big issue here. The distribution costs are, on the other hand, a big problem (as expected).
