Phis are readily available items of commerce; there are a couple of ES ones available on ebay at less than $1000 (e.g. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Intel-Xeon...item338f852e7a)

My guess is that the 'Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor Architecture and Tools' and 'Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor High Performance Programming' books were handed out at some conference and not all the recipients wished to love them and cherish them forever, so they're about $50 from ebay.

You'll need ICC, which is 30-day eval or $700; I imagine Intel might be readier to hand out compiler licenses than they are to hand out hardware.
