Wow. OK I understand these are all used but I never even knew that someone was publishing books of his story at all. So, here is my question, who got paid to write this book?

Judging from the publishers of the book it seems that the money goes to John Titor Inc. and what exactly does that book cotain.

I do not know but it goes a long way to quiet the people that claim he must be true just because noone ever made any money off of it.

He's from the future. Everything costs more because of normal inflation. Where he's at, gas is like $25 a gallon and big Macs over $10.

$500 for a book, a couple hours of minimum wage in his time. Looks like a bargain now!

That is pretty weird. I think I paid $10 for this book over 5 years ago. Why on earth would anyone think they could get $500 for this book. This book just takes all the questions people asked of John on the internet and his answers., with supposed background from his mother.

From the book
Page II of the introduction
In this compilation, the original questions and comments have been summarized and are in bold lettering. The paragraph breaks in John's comments represent multiple questions that were eliminated but explained in John's thought process. As you read, you may notice slight emotional shifts between the paragraph breaks that capture John's state while answering the question. The italicized comments were made by John's mother.

Q:Why did you go to 1975?

The first "leg" of my trip was from 2036 to 1975. After two VGL checks, the divergence was estimated at about 2.5%(from my 2036). I was "sent" to get an IBM computer system called the 5100. It was one of the first portable computers made and it has the ability to read the older IBM programming languages in addition to APL and Basic. We need the system to "debug" various legacy computer programs in 2036. UNIX has a problem in 2038.

John was more protective of the computer he had from 1975 than the time machine. He explained the computer had been modified by my husband's father and was special in some way. When my husband saw the computer he remembered his father (John's grandfather) bringing the computer home and letting him play lunar-lander game on it. I wonder if the computer John had was the same.
