Beyond The Blue Premier Edition
PRE-ORDER YOUR PREMIER EDITION NOW--FIRST PRINTING SCHEDULED FOR LATE JULY 2014!
This is YOUR chance to not only get your hands on a LIMITED/Prized Collector's Edition... but help us support the educational outreach celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the winning of the XPRIZE! Your purchase not only gets you a signed/numbered/certificated copy of the book (the first copies off the press!), but much of these funds will support our first outreach celebrations at AirVenture Oshkosh, an 'EGGS PRIZE' youth education program, the display of a full-scale model of SpaceShipOne at Wittman Field in Oshkosh, an exciting multi-media presentation that will be used throughout the celebration period and MORE.
OH... and there are some surprise EXTRAS in development for Premier Edition customers, too!
We plan to take at least 100 of the books, at random, off the first press run and circulate them among some of the pivotal XPRIZE Insiders, for them to sign, as well. So; in addition to an author signature, you MAY get a copy that is also signed by someone like Peter Diamandis, or Gregg Maryniak and/or any number of the extraordinary/historic participants in the first decade of the XPRIZE Revolution. It's an exciting and fun way to spice up this offering -- and no kidding, it will be totally random. Oh yeah... guess what, there's even more surprises in the works (stay tuned!).
This extraordinary 'Premier Edition' will be offered as a boxed set that includes one of the first books, right off the press, signed and numbered by the author, as well as a certificate of authenticity and other special benefits. The $100 Premier Edition is being offered in order to offer XPRIZE advocates and fans the chance to get their hands on a one-time collector's edition that will, in part, pay for some exciting XPRIZE programs and outreach events that will continue the immensely important work started some two decades ago when the XPRIZE was born.
Beyond the Blue, the photo/narrative, by James Richard Campbell, is the ultimate insider's look at the first decade of the XPRIZE revolution. From the heady days of the XPRIZE test flights and competition flights to the formation and execution of the Zero-Gravity Corporation, XPRIZE Cup, Rocket Racing League, Google Lunar XPRIZE and other innovative events and programs, Campbell provided the cameras, notepad and a personal narrative about one of the most exciting efforts of the 21st century.
