The new Tom Crean Book – Crean – The Extraordinary Life of an Irish Hero is available to readers whatever your reading preference. There are the e-book versions and two print versions.
One print version is now available to book retailers through the Ingram Spark Global connect programme which allows book retailers across the world to purchase the book through their wholesalers or directly through Ingram Spark if they register with them. I wanted to make a more affordable print option and as this book uses a lighter paper weight and type – this version is available priced at €15.50 (Ireland), £13.99 (UK), $17.99 (USA) with related exchange costs in other world currencies. This book is currently on hold but will be available in September with the ISBN 978-1-9999189-3-4. This is the version that is also now available on Amazon.
I have also ordered my own print run, through a company based in County Kerry and this version uses heavier paper and cover that are generally used for full-color style books so comes in at a slightly higher cost. This is the version that is being offered here on the website at £15.99 (UK) with foreign currency equivalent prices. (Currently hovering around 18 Euros, and 20.50 US Dollars.) This, (The Kerry Version), when purchased on the website, can be offered as a signed copy and the option to request this is visible when making your choice.
The book is available through a number of book retailers across Ireland yet we are still in the process of rolling it out so if any bookstores wish to stock this Kerry print version please contact us.
For copies of our new Tom Crean book purchased via the website a postal charge will need to be applied. For post and packaging I’ve made this as affordable as possible and we are using Royal Mail options for delivery anywhere in the world, including Antarctica. This version is listed under the ISBN 978-1-9999189-1-0.
The book is now available at Tom’s former home – The South Pole Inn where the copies they hold are all signed.
The website shop is now open for sales of the Kerry made print book version and just to clarify that the global postage options are ‘standard’ and “signed for” – signed for, being a higher fee, requires a customers signature on delivery
There is also a downloadable PDF version with a clickable table of contents, clickable links to notes/references and a clickable index. This version is available now at a cost of £4.99 and can be purchased here
It’s been a long journey writing and researching this book and feedback from those who’ve already read it has been absolutely great. I’m proud of it and hope it wins us many new fans for this great Irishman so that we can celebrate reaching the goal of official recognition.
