I've been thinking of writing in on the topic of Insight Media but have
held my tongue (or, rather, fingers) until now. I feel the need to express
a HUGE concern regarding Insight Media.

Just this month alone, I have managed to order "Insight Media" titles from
other sources (typically their original source) for a total of $580
compared to the $1055 I would have had to spend ordering from
Insight. They send out nicely packaged, subject-specific brochures, which
profs love because they don't have to fight their way through a huge
catalog, but I've decided NEVER to order a title from IM w/o looking
elsewhere first. Occasionally the title has been reworked slightly (as in
Design of the Modern TheatER vs. Design of the Modern TheatRE), but they're
usually out there.

Caveat emptor!!
