Subject: Are any 200-page textbooks being produced?

The 7/20/2012 Report "K-8 Publishers' Criteria for the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics" is available at:

http://www.corestandards.org/assets/Math_Publishers_Criteria_K-8_Summer%202012_FINAL.pdf

The following is on Page 19:

"(For paper-based materials.) A textbook that is focused is short. For example, by design Japanese textbooks have less than one page per lesson. Elementary textbooks should be less than 200 pages, middle and secondary less than 500 pages."

Does anyone know if any such books are being produced?

In my opinion, short, focused textbooks are absolutely essential in order to stem the continuing pseudo-education of American students.
