Anyone for a $6 million diamond-encrusted book?

Dancing With The BearRussian tycoons are the target readers for a diamond-encrusted book with an estimated value of £3m ($6m).

British entrepreneur Roger Shashoua is offering a made-to-order edition of his new book Dancing With The Bear.

The cover of each of the special "oligarch" copies, said to be the most expensive book in the world, features more than 600 flawless diamonds. For the special edition, the cover has been switched from the standard white to black to show up the diamonds.

The book is an account of how the author made £100m ($200m) through business in post-Soviet Russia. Mr Shashoua expects interest from wealthy Russian ex-pats based in the UK.
