    >>As I understand the situation (and I could be wrong), with stat books/histories traditionally being huge money-losers, USATF printed up only enough copies so that the accredited media could be supplied in Atlanta and not pay for a print run that found them with leftover copies that not only cost money to print but also to ship and inventory.<<


    But things have changed. Now USATF has a website where they sell publications. Presumably they have the capacity to inventory and ship these books. They could price them to make a profit, or at least not to take a loss. And they have access to Internet forums such as this that they could use to publicize the availability of the book. Very different environment.

    Isn't this technically a "Historical" question? Shouldn't it be moved to the proper subforum?

    Thanks. It would be nice if they at least made it available to us, the great unwashed, which they did not do with the first edition. Can you or someone put in a word to this effect?

    At this point all I know is that USATF is planning on publishing an updated version. They're not likely to expect to sell enough to jump through the hoops of having to cut somebody else in on the profit and figure out distribution loops.

    Specifically, which "streets" will it hit? Will it be available through T&FN?

    New version--to be published by USATF--will hit the streets in the next little while.
