Buy My Book

Shameless hawking.

Begging, really.

Buy my book!


This is a day that I have long anticipated. A day that should have come weeks, or months ago. But never mind the delays and the changes of mind and that point where I (temporarily, thankfully) abandoned the project altogether. The book is done. And ready for consumption.

I need to thank my wife. She was, until very recently, the only other person who had read what I had written, and was often subjected to my consternation and impatience when she had the audacity to make good, sound, rational suggestions about how to improve the text. And then she quickly and competently edited the mess.

And Trent Jameson, coworker and friend, also needs to be thanked. He designed the cover, and went the extra mile in laying out the interior as well. The book is much better on the eyes because of his efforts. Well done.

I re-read some of the book last night. Why? I have no idea. I can’t tell any more if it’s entertaining or even coherent. To my eyes, it is just rambling black and white. But I welcome your feedback. Any reviews or thoughts that you want to post on your blog, please do. Send me those posts, and I’ll link to those pages, and include an excerpt of the review here. If you don’t blog, send me an email. I really do want to know what you think—good or bad. I’m hoping that this project is the first of many more to come. And it will be, assuming I can improve and learn and… think of something new to write about next (time for more adventures!).

Right now the book is available in print, and as a digital PDF. I will have an ePub edition soon.

So, yeah. Go buy your copy of Mythical and Tangible: Tales of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Singletrack.

    What, no coupon coupon code for your loyal readers/fans? Kidding. Can’t wait to devour the book! I’m buying the print edition (I’m Luddite like that). Kudos on finishing, it looks to be a great read!

    Great job getting the book done. I ordered a copy in paperback. Do I just send you the receipt to get a $36.00 reimbursement for overnight shipping or?

    I wanted to buy the print copy and leave it in the IMBA office once finished for all to enjoy, but Lulu says it saves your payment info and you can’t opt out, as far as I can tell. I’m not super sketched out by stuff like that, but just prefer the option to have info not saved. I know you can’t do anything about it, but just FYI. So I bought the PDF. And actually, it’s probably better. I can read it on the way to 18 Hours of Fruita this weekend! Good luck with selling it.

      Send me an email at adam @ epicriding dot com with IMBA’s mailing adress and your ATTN info. I’d be happy to send out a print copy. And thanks for buying the digital copy as well. I hope you enjoy it.
