The Atlantic takes a look at the "real" numbers behind book prices

After the New York Times had a breakdown of where the costs for both a hardcover and an e-book go to, the Atlantic has issue its own tongue-in-cheek breakdown.

For example:
"- $2.00 to cover wild overpayments to 15-minute celebrities or Washington bigshots for books that will never earn back their huge advances but the cost has to be amortized somehow
- $0.50 for lawyers
- $0.40 for editors"

Read the rest of the parody here.
