In Which I Promote Myself

I wrote a book that some people — people not even related to me — think is pretty good. That book [deep breath], Reggie Jackson: The Life and Thunderous Career of Baseball’s Mr. October, is now available in trade paperback at championship retailers everywhere. Just look at it!

If you’ve previously purchased and enjoyed the the boundless charms of the hardcover edition, please know that this one is much more ergonomic and comfortable. But that’s not all! Here’s an interview with me about said book, which, I may have mentioned, is available for purchase.

In the timeless words of the Video Professor, “Please try my product.” In fact, if you purchase this book, then I’ll come to your house, place of business or favorite darkened boulevard and sign it for you!*

*I will almost certainly not do this. But I do love all of you.

I saw that, too. I was worried for a moment that he was intentionally referring to an embarrassing typo that ended up on every jacket cover, but fortunately that’s not the case.

I prefer it if the authors of the books I purchase read it to me over the intercom while I am in the back of my limousine

Before I consider buying it, can you tell me what the book is about? It looks baseball-related.

Knowledge to Words ratio in this book is very low. It was a book written for people that enjoy reading and probably have spare time.

It is not a book written for people who demand instant and efficient consumption of brain knowledge.

Needs more tables, appendices, and indices, imo.

This falls somewhere between a phonebook (1 Knowledge Per 3 Words) and anything written by Charles Dickens ( 0.25 Knowledge Per Pound of Book)
