We just got a press release about Mark Cuban's new book -- which, says here, isn't so new, but it's new to us, so there. And at 24 pages, we're not sure it's much of a book -- here's a sample page, so you can judge for yourselves. Says the publicist, the book "features a look at game day (from the best seat in the house, of course!)." Of course.

Ah, see -- it's for kids. Titled Let's Go, Mavs!, it was published this year by Chantilly, Virginia-based Mascot Books, which has also published such titles as How 'Bout Them Cowboys! (starring Rowdy, the worst mascot in professional sports) and Hello Hook 'Em!, perfect for your baby Longhorn. Cuban's book is the only title in the NBA category -- and, far as we can tell, he's the only owner credited as author. However, Yogi Berra did, apparently, write Let's Go, Yankees!, which I am now dying to read. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
