College Textbook Racket

Hey, I just real­ized WHY we have to buy so many books—it’s job secu­ri­ty for the professors!

I mean, who writes most textbooks—professors, right? And I’m tak­ing four cours­es in tech­ni­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tions. A lot of books, even when they’re writ­ten by some­one in a par­tic­u­lar field, are co-writ­ten by a writer.

I know some of the TCOM pro­fes­sors write on the side.

So if lots of books are sold, more get pub­lished. I think. And they have more job secu­ri­ty as writ­ers and as teach­ers of writers.

It makes MUCH more sense now.
