2011 Bound Edition of the Newberg Report: THE COVERS
I’m resending this because I wanted to share with you guys the front and back cover of the book, which was finalized tonight by the great Marty Yawnick of Type A Design. Thanks also to photographer Jim Cowsert (via Brad Newton) for the front cover shot, and McCall Money and Scott Lucas for the player photos on the back (plus Brad for the ghosted photo of the manager and GM on the back).
My publisher would appreciate me reminding you that this one’s gonna make a damned fine coffee table book for all those baseball fans on your holiday shopping list . . . .
OF THE NEWBERG REPORT
We are now taking preorders for the 2011 Bound Edition of the Newberg Report, my 12th annual book on the Texas Rangers. It’s well over 300 pages commemorating the 2010 World Series season, easily the greatest and most compelling in the history of this franchise. It’s all chronicled in the book, in daily, exhaustive, emotional detail. For any Rangers fan, this book will be one to look back on for years and years, no matter what happens with this franchise going forward.
The 2011 Bound Edition, with forewords written by Chuck Greenberg and Brad Sham, not only looks back on 2010 but also serves as a primer on what you can expect from this organization for years to come. Nowhere can you find more information and analysis on the players that the Rangers are developing as future members of the major league team and, in some scenarios, as ammunition for trades such as the one that made Cliff Lee a Texas Ranger in July. More than 1,500 of you on this mailing list are past customers of the Bound Edition, but for those of you who are relatively new to the Newberg Report, here is what you can expect from the book:
The book picks up right where the 2010 Bound Edition left off, taking you from October 14, 2009 to November 3, 2010 and containing every report I wrote in that span. It’s the most thorough account you’ll find of the many twists and turns that the 2010 season took, and of the implications of the personnel moves that highlighted it. Not just a complete record of the Rangers’ season, the book includes a feature section comprised of more than 50 pages of new material that won’t ever appear on the website or in any e-mail deliveries. Included in that section are rankings and analysis of more than 70 Rangers prospects, broken down by position.
The day-by-day journey the book takes through the magical 2010 campaign, from the off-season through the World Series, makes the 2011 Bound Edition a seriously outstanding holiday gift. So, you know, buy lots of them.
The glossy front and back covers are perfect for autographs. And as we always do, we will put together at least one book release party, and probably two, where you can bring your books and get them signed by Rangers players and officials.
The 2011 Bound Edition is $25.00 per book plus shipping ($4.95 for the first book, $2.00 for each additional book).
Because I have to front the costs (and for obvious reasons we’re printing more this year than we ever have before), if you plan to buy copies of the book, I’d be grateful if you were able to preorder. The plan is to have the books ready for delivery in time for the holidays.
I also have all the previous editions of the Bound Edition for sale. The price breakdown is as follows:
* 2011 Bound Edition – $25.00 per book (plus shipping: $4.95 for first book, $2.00 for each additional book)
* 1999/2000 through 2010 Bound Editions – $15 (shipping is on me for the past editions)
* A gift set of all 12 Bound Editions is available for $150, which is a $40 discount

I couldn’t be more excited about this year’s book, primarily because of the amazing story we all got to live through this season. I’m extremely biased but, trying to pretend to be slightly objective, I think this is the kind of book – this year especially – that any Rangers fan’s library should include. I’m happy to answer any questions you have.
Thank you, as always, for your support of the Newberg Report.
