World's most expensive book costs $100,000!!!

It's true. Some people really do have too much money. Consider the people who might opt to purchase a new tome called "Michelangelo. La Dotta Mano."

It's a book about the famed Italian artist's life and work (including the statue of David, left) and it's been published in his native country, with copies being sent over to North America. But if you want to read it or buy it for your own enjoyment, be prepared to take out a bank loan. 

A single edition costs an astounding $100,000.  More...
