Know Thyself - Academic Publishers


                          







Objectives

Know Thyself - Academic Publishers (KTAP) publishes books from and for the scientific community. Our publishing policy differs from those of other publishers in two respects. First, being a very small publisher with kind of "home-made" books, we can offer very competitive prices to our customers. Second, authors do not get a certain (typically low) percentage of total sales but they get 100% of sales after production costs and once a certain sales level has been reached. This makes sure that both the intellectual but also the financial merit of selling many books stays with the person who created the knowledge.


Products

KTAP currently offers exactly one textbook. It is entitled Applied Intertemporal Optimization written by Klaus Wälde. This book has been the most downloaded textbook in economics worldwide ever since the electronic version became public in early 2009.

It can be bought here or at bookstores (directing them to this home page). The book has the standard book size (right between A5 and A4) and it has a wonderful cover. The best feature of the book, however, is its solution manual. The book contains a selection of solutions to problem sets in the text.

The price is 34.90 EUR for OECD and 29.90 EUR for non-OECD countries. Both prices include shipping worldwide. The reduced non-OECD price is available if both shipment and invoice address are in a non-OECD country. A list of OECD Member countries is available here. If you wish to be able to track your book while being shipped, please choose the option "with tracking number".

Payment is via PayPal using the box on the right-hand side. Please make sure that the address for delivery in PayPal is the correct one. Representatives of libraries and of other institutions can also order by using our order form.
