Just a few more weeks until Good to Great to Gone: The 60 Year Rise and Fall of Circuit City is released. The revised publication date is Tuesday, October 23, 2012. You can pre-order now (with a Low Price Guarantee!) from the book’s web site: www.CircuitCitytheBook.com
You may have noticed a subtle – but factually important – change to the front cover of the book: Alan’s title has changed from “Founder” to “Creator.” The founder of the company was, of course, Alan’s father Sam, who opened Wards TV in 1949. Alan created the Circuit City concept in 1977 and officially changed the name of the company in 1984.
Be sure to read the first 30 pages or so of the book when you visit its web site. Also check the event calendar… Alan may be speaking and signing his books at a venue near you!
The acclaimed documentary film, A Tale of Two Cities: The Circuit City Story, also chronicles the meteoric rise and tragic downfall of the late, great retailer. It’s available now on Amazon.com. Click here to order!
