CHART: Buy my book

February 8, 2010 | 5:45 p.m. CST
This semester, at least 25 MU professors require their students to read books which bore those professor’s own names on the cover, either as authors or editors. These professors are not known to earn anything from the books or violate the university’s conflict of interest policy, which requires them to donate the royalties derived from such assignments to the university or to a charity. At the MU Bookstore, a used book costs 75 percent as much as a new one.
