As you may have seen from a recent post, I am a frequent 'flyer' with Amazon.ca (probably Amazon.com for you). Because, as my husband likes to tease me, I seem to single-handedly keep Amazon afloat, they send me a couple of e-mails every day telling me of other books I might find of interest ... and sometimes I do find they appeal.
This morning I received a suggestion about a book I would normally want to purchase. However, I am exercising some rare restraint and will not purchase this book. Why? You will see why in the description from Amazon below:

I would like to have this sort of reference on my bookshelves as I am interested in both of these subjects separately, and having been the unwilling 'victim' of one religion I am especially interested in the psychology of religion. (The religion of psychology is a whole other interesting topic!)
I share this valuable information about this new work, in case you, too, would like to purchase this 3 volume, 1600+ tome for only $1,152.20, by Dr. Justin Barrett. Hurry now, there is only 1 left in stock! Probably the only one they ordered! I think most of us will be exploring it in a university library, if any of us ever do at all. :-)
I'm sure it is a worthy piece of scholarly work. Perhaps one day I will be fortunate enough to take a peek at it.
