I'm posting this thread because I actually recieved a couple of PMs about this and I know that others are interested.
I was able to buy the SI White Sox book by itself (without buying a subscription.)

There is a seperate link that you have to order through. Thanks to Mark for finding this again.

I think if you decline the offer to sign up for SI and get the 'White Sox package' it goes to a link that offers you the book only. That's what I ended up doing....

That's exactly how I found out about it the first time. The link above used to pop up after opening the page offering the subscription. It doesn't look like it automatically pops up anymore so we had to look for the direct link (which is the one above that Mark found.)

You can purchase the magazine edition of the book (content the same; soft cover rather than hard cover) for around $6.00 at most bookstores. Got mine Sunday.

Crap. I bought that and I never realized that the hardcover thing was going to be the same. Are you sure of this? Has anyone gotten the hardcover edition yet?

The hardcover edition is supposed to have copies of all of the previous White Sox SI covers. This wasn't offered in the softcover newstand edition, so it is possible the two books will vary in other ways too.

I also ordered the complete package, but although I've never subscribed to SI before I've always enjoyed reading it, so I'm OK with having the subscription for a year (not to mention the baseballs and the bronze coin). I can certainly understand why most people would probably only want the commemorative hardcover book though, so I'm glad they've provided an option for those customers.
