The Fatbrain affiliates program has been discontinued. As of 3/31, it has been replaced with the Barnes & Noble affiliate program. Barnes & Noble offers a 5% commission (or 7% if you sell $1,000,000 worth of their products); amazon offers up to 15% with a directly-linked book (as the site uses).

Or... perhaps the person who put up the link at was considerate and conscientious enough to check prices... Programming the Perl DBI is $27.96 on Fatbrain/Barnes & Noble, and $24.47 on amazon.

I hope it wasn't construed that I condone the patents (software patents stink), but if a site maintainer chooses to offer only amazon links for whatever reason, a visitor can easily note the isbn number and go to another bookstore if it's their personal choice to boycott amazon.
