[This one?][1] It has been translated into Russian and it is being
sold at ~73 USD. Which is a lot for a book, and still it seems there
is demand for it.

(As for me, if I personally wanted to own a copy of that book, I could
probably buy it in English on Amazon for cheaper. I’ve seen enough
books whose translations were inaccurate, inelegant or any combination
of the above.)
