I received an advance copy this past week (since we're holding a book signing during Stark RAVEN Mad and will be selling the book in our shops this season) and can attest that it's an incredible book!

I was shocked to discover it's a hard-cover book--with the price ($15.98) I just assumed it was paperback. It's oversized--a coffee table book.

I've always been a fan of Robert Coker's writing, and so I'm looking forward to reading more than just the part about The Raven and The Legend. :)

The photos are superb, too.

Thanks, Paula

Paula, you should be ashamed of all this false advertising you've been doing for Holiday World! First, it was the #2 park in the Midwest. Then, you make up a story about girl scouts losing their HW money and you guys coming in to save the day. Now, you're using Rob to get more people into HW!? That's just madness!

;) Just joking of couse.

Why would I write a book? The only thing I'm qualified to write is an autobiography, and I doubt that would be of much interest to anyone.

Jeff:

You could write a book on the struggle to run a rollercoaster web site. Throw in a couple of murders, a terrorist or two, coasters flying off the tracks, and a little romance; and you might have a best seller.

Chapter 5: When Badnitrus Sucked the Life out of My T-1. ;)

Actually, I've always wanted to write a book or screenplay, but the right idea has to come to me first. Problem with the screenplay idea is that I'd have to direct... I couldn't leave that to someone else.

In the mean time, I'll just stick to my Sillynonsense journal entries.

I'm getting it. I've already reserved my copy at B&N. I was surprised that it was that cheap, too.

I have also reserved a copy. I reserved mine on BUY.com for $11.34. Add in shipping and handling and it wasn't quite $15. Great price for what should be an incredible book.

I just like the fact that it has Windjammer on the cover. ;)

I have never heard of Robert Cooker and his new book. Can anyone give me some details on what the book is going to be about. Is it a book that just describes the rides on different coasters around the US or is it something different, such as a book all about Holiday World (which would be awesome :) ) Details are appreciated and if it sounds like a good book then i may reserve a copy myself. When does it come out also? Thanks to all.

I bought the book when I was home for spring break in March. I can't wait to get it! It's such a great price for a book like that! Bob rocks!
