Counting Down Bruce Springsteen Discount FlyerPosted: June 3, 2014
First of all, for those looking for the Tuesday Touts, I have to postpone them for this week due to promotional duties for the book, other writing assignments, and other stuff that’s going on. I like to really give the music for the Touts my full attention before recommending anything to you, and I just haven’t had the time to do so this past week. They should be back next week though.
Now for the good news. Some of you have expressed interest in Counting Down Bruce Springsteen: His 100 Finest Songs but balked at the hardcover price. I’m hoping that the success I’ve had promoting this one will help eventually get it into paperback form and into bookstores; keep your fingers crossed. Until then though, I want to offer my readers a discount which can be achieved by ordering through my publishers at Rowman.com. See the flyer below. It’s a little below the Amazon price, so that should help.
Believe me, if it were up to me, I’d set the price nice and low for everyone. But understand that Rowman is essentially an academic press which is stretching its boundaries of what it normally publishes to put out my writing, so the price, which is comparable to other reference books, is the trade-off. That said, the hardcovers are very well put together and guaranteed to last a long time for your perusal, so that’s another way of looking at it. And, of course, those looking to take it easy on their pocketbooks can also get the Kindle edition, which should come available the day the book is released.
So I hope the discount helps, and I hope everyone checks out Counting Down Bruce Springsteen in one way or another.

Counting Down Bruce Springsteen
His 100 Finest Songs
By Jim Beviglia
For 40 years, Bruce Springsteen has held center stage as the quintessential American rock and roll artist, expressing the hopes and dreams of the American everyman and every woman through his vast array of insightful and inspirational songs. In Counting Down Bruce Springsteen: His 100 Finest Songs, rock writer Jim Beviglia dares to rank his finest songs in descending order from the 100th to his no. 1 greatest song.
In this unique book, Beviglia reflects not only on why each song has earned its place on list but lays out the story behind each of the 100, supplying fresh insights on the musical and lyrical content of Springsteen’s remarkable body of work. Counting Down Bruce Springsteen brings together critical historical and biographical information to explain the making and importance of each song to its listeners, painting a fascinating portrait of Springsteen as a major American songwriter and consummate recording artist.
