Why I love Softpro Books in Denver

I want to give a copy of Revolution in the Valley as a gift to a bright young programmer and Apple fan that I meet with a couple of times a month.  I love reading stories about the chaotic founding days of world-changing companies or products, and I think he would too.  But it turns out the book is out of print.  Softpro Books to the rescue:

Found a copy at O’Reilly’s offices in Sebastopol. I should have it in a few days for you.

Wow.  You just don’t get that kind of service anywhere but a local retailer.  Softpro is one of the last remaining retail computer bookstores in the country, and it’s a gem.
