Beckham; “A Soccer Fiasco”

The Beckham Experiment  —  to #243 — on preorder. There’s an excerpt in the July Sports Illus — http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/the_bonus/06/29/beckham.book/?cnn=yes
WorldCat shows only Seattle & Gwinnett County, GA, has it on order
Doesn’t look like it was reviewed prepub (was it embargoed?)
It’s in the Crown catalog for Oct — what made them move it up to July 31? perhaps the SI excerpt? I’ve sent an inquiry to Jen Childs, in library marketing at RH.

Amazon preorders have shot The Beckham Experiment, to #243 (from #13,878), likely because of an excerpt, titled “How Beckham Blew It,”  in the July 6th Sports Illustrated. According to author Grant Wahl, soccer star David Beckham’s move to the LA Galaxy team, which was supposed to bring new American fans to the sport, has been a “soccer fiasco.”

The book’s release, originally scheduled for October, has been moved up to July 14th. According to WorldCat, only Seattle & Gwinnett County, GA, have it on order.
