It is most remarkable that price tag of $200 is unable to deter Tom Brady fans even the slightest as they all mobbed bookstores to get they hands on the NFL Star’s new cookbook.
The 89-recipe tome, snappily titled the TB12 Nutrition Manual was described on the New England Patriots quarterback’s official website as being printed on 100-pound text paper with covers made from natural wood that include laser etching.
It describes its culinary offering as a “limited-edition ‘living document’ containing information about our core TB12 nutritional philosophies and featuring a library of 89 seasonally-inspired recipes that you can use to support your TB12-aligned nutrition plan.”
Much in the spirit of commercialism too, the description on the site also added, “Please note also that as we periodically update this manual with new or modified recipes, we will send additional pages to all purchasers of the manual.”
Essentially, anyone who buys it will receive additional pages with new or modified recipes until Brady runs out of culinary ideas.
Brady himself also posted a picture from the book on his Facebook page, calling it “another step toward achieving your peak performance.” But all copies are final sale. “Please note that due to its unique content and binding, all sales of the TB12 Nutrition Manual are final sale – the manual cannot be returned or exchanged.”
The book proved to be a big hit as it already ran out of stock, and further copies will only be made available after another month or so. But it wasn’t even the most expensive book written by a member of his family. His wife Gisele Bundchen had written a $700 coffee-table book last November, which sold out too.
Either way, Brady would have plenty of time to perfect his skills and maybe come up with a second cookbook, as he is set to miss the first four games of the next NFL season after his Deflategate ban was upheld last month.
