This long awaited book was quietly released this past summer with very little press or fanfare and was only available through the publisher, "RoseDog Books", and Amazon. This move left the mega giant book retailer B&N and super book retailer BAM locked out in the cold in the race to sell Hudson's real-life, David and Golaith court battle story over the copyrights for the Academy Awarding-Winning hit movie, LIFE, starring Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, and an allstar cast. http://www.poorpennyproductions.com
BAM is a company that owns the second largest U.S. bookstore chain and is headquarted in Birmingham, Alabama. BAM operates more than 200 stores throughout the South, Midwest, and Northeast United States. Since the demise of Borders, BAM became the second largest brick & mortor bookstore behind B&N.
To gain a competitive edge, BAM is offering the hardcover version (retailed for $20.00) lower than both competitors at $14.37 as opposed to Amazon's $14.67, and B&N's $14.72. Amazon offers the Kindle version for $9.99 and B&N offers the Nook version for $9.99.
BAM has a flagship Books-A-Million superstore division where readers can drop in, read a book, grab a pastry, and a cup of coffee from Joe Muggs Coffehouse Cafe (similar to Starbucks).
Barnes & Noble, headquarted at 122 Fifth Avenue, New York City, is the largest Brick & Mortor Bookstore. It operates about 700 stores throughout the United States and almost as many college bookstores. B&N is known for serving Starbucks Coffee and pastries while readers enjoy their favorite read. Like BAM, B&N was shut out on the hardcover version until recently.
Amazon, unlike BAM and B&N Brick & Mortar Bookstores, is the largest "online retailer" in the world. Amazon is a multinational electronic commerce company headquarted in Seattle, Washington. Not only did it have the hardcover version before its competitors, but also offered it on its Kindle.
The book itself is quietly creating a "superbuzz" in the book world. Those readers who have read the book are giving it "terrific reviews"; mostly on B&N's website. In October, the book soared up the rankings on Amazon. In November, B&N began selling it and the book began to slowly stagger up and down the rankings, but holding steady. Now that BAM has entered the game and at the lowest price ... this may well be the best opportunity to buy the book now.
Since BAM has thrown its hat in the ring for this "book lover's treasure chest", more public schools, colleges, and universities (especially for its educational value on copyright, due process of the law, and the American Judicial System) .... it is a "win win" situation for everyone and the readers are the biggest winners because this added competition will serve to keep the book price down. Besides ... where else can you buy a new hardcover book as astonishing, educational, and entertaining as "Why I Sued Eddie Murphy"?
"When it comes to the enter workings of Hollywood, celebrities, and copyright fights over movies, or one man putting it all on the line and going against the system against all odds (a theme of "injustice" that is common all over the world) no other book on the market can stand up to this book. Every writer, author, or artist ... must read this book".
