We're recommending it because this is a hot topic particularly for self publishers and small presses. Notice it's in the headlines now as the U.S. Department of Justice is alleging Apple unfairly manipulated this market. The big pushback is from mainstream publishers, because they are parties in this dispute.

As to price points, Vook did a white paper on the advantages of listing new ebooks for free for a limited time, then raising to 99 cents.
