A quick book update

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update on The Best Of Down Goes Brown. Unfortunately, there was a good reason for that: There wasn’t much to say, because for the past few months the book’s been out of stock at all of the major online stores.

In some sense that was a positive, since it means people are buying the book faster than the stores can stock it. Having to hang up an occasional “sold out” sign isn’t a bad thing. But in this case, “occasional” somehow stretched into “pretty much permanent”. I heard from plenty of people who had to wait weeks and months to get their copies, or who had their orders cancelled altogether. That’s not cool, and you have my apologies.

So here’s the good news: As of this week, it looks like the book is finally back in stock at sites like Amazon and Indigo, and there’s a second printing on the way that should prevent this from happening again. If you had an order that was on hold, it should ship soon. If your order was cancelled, or you gave up waiting, you can try again if you’d like.

Here's where you can find it: | | Barnes & Noble | Chapters/Indigo

In the meantime, here’s some evidence that the book really does exist once again:


  1. Out of stock? Congrats, dude!! Back in stock, even better news. And now, I don't have to lend my dad my well-enjoyed copy; he can get his own.

  2. Congratulations with the success of your ebook. You truly deserve it.

  3. I got my dad a copy for his garage, and one for myself this christmas. Great work. Laughed out loud repeatedly. Don't know if my Dad entirely gets!

  4. Your book and The Game were my christmas gifts to my Dad, he loves them both.

    (Your book has been given a permanent spot on the shelf in the bathroom, which is a very good thing.

  5. Got one from my son for "the garage" he says. I piss in his beer every time we watch the game!
    The book was awesome. Read it in a couple of hours, while my son is still reading with his finger on the page.
