A captivating AnnualPosted by Dave Studeman
John Dewan recently read the 2010 THT Annual on a plane trip and here's what he had to say:
I recently had a chance to sit down with The Hardball Times Baseball Annual 2010 and was completely captivated by the quality writing and analysis it contains. I cannot recommend a book more highly than this year’s THT annual.Yes, John is the Co-Publisher of ACTA Sports, the guys who publish our Annual, so he's just a tad biased. On the other hand, John sent me an email that made it clear his feelings were sincere; he's never really given us public (or private) feedback like this before. It was nice to hear.
I know you're probably already done with your Christmas shopping and Amazon is out of stock right now. Very frustrating. But you can probably find the Annual at your local bookstore, and I think the baseball fan in your house will thank you profusely for it. Plus, ACTA can ship it to you quickly.
If you've gotten the book and have some feedback for us, please leave it in the comment section. One reader left a review at Amazon, but we'd like to have more reviews posted there. Feedback is always welcome. For instance, one of the ideas I'm thinking about for next year's Annual is cutting down the size to a more manageable 6x9, which can be carried and read more easily. This was mentioned in the Amazon review, and I've toyed with the idea before. What do you think?
As always, thank you for your support.
