Specialized Book Challenge

The advent of the information age was supposed to herald a new era of specialized, on-demand information services. Books, music, and other media that fit our interests would be available at our fingertips. Super-specialized information would be the norm.

The book that most closely resembles this paradigm for me was Mathematics in a Postmodern Age: A Christian Perspective - the book is about exactly what I thought it would be about, and it's written for exactly the audience I thought it would be. That topic and audience are both exceptionally small; nevertheless, the book serves its purpose admirably.

My challenge to you is this: tell me about a book that is probably not of interest to more than a few thousand people in the world. If it's a good book, so much the better.
