It's An Instant Satisfaction World

I saw this writer, Jon Ronson, on The Daily Show two nights ago talking about his new book, The Psychopath Test (he also wrote Men Who Stare at Goats-I liked the movie).  His interview really peaked my interest because 1) my new book (coming mid June) is a psychological thriller and some of the things he was discussing relate directly to my fiction book an 2) he was very entertaining.  A good sign for the writer of a non-fiction book.
I wanted to read his book.  So, of course, I checked online and the price is 12.99.  High!  I downloaded a sample but, by the time all the title and copyright stuff was done, there were only three pages of actual book.  Three really good pages.  I still wanted this book.  So, I did what I always do.  I checked the library.  They don't have it yet.  And there is no sign they are getting it any time soon.
All day long I have been thinking about this book and how I want to read it.  I need to read it. It could be research for the final touches on my own book, right?  It's been about 24 hours since I first heard of this book and I am so close to just buying it for my nook.Where is my patience?  My outrage at the 12.99 price?  Oh, it's there.  But I want this book.
Is this what the world is coming too?  This instant satisfying of every want with the touch of a button?  If so, I like it!
P.S. I bought the book.
