Free Download..."Jeremy Lin: Faith, Joy, and Basketball" by Ted Kluck

The other day I posted this message at Facebook:
My friend, Ted Kluck, has written a book about Jeremy Lin, subtitled Faith, Joy, and Basketball. I haven't read it yet, but Ted is a talented, honest and witty writer who has penned books on such varied topics as Mike Tyson, international adoption, and the emergent church.
In the Introduction to this book, Ted writes,
Watching the Knicks, and waiting for this deal, is like watching the stock market. I have a few shares of Jeremy Lin, Inc., and while I wait for my publisher to have the requisite fifty-five committee meetings necessary to approve a project, I'm praying Lin doesn't sprain an ankle or have a horrendous shooting night. Time is of the essence. I'm breaking the cardinal rule of publishing (and of pro sports, for that matter), which is "Don't begin work without a contract." Rod Tidwell would be ashamed of me.
Fortunately for Ted, the book got the green light and was made available for e-readers last week. Unfortunately for Lin, Ted's words turned seemingly prophetic this weekend with the announcement that Lin would have surgery on a torn meniscus in his left knee, likely sidelining him for the rest of the season.

When I saw this news and then shortly thereafter saw that the download of the book was available for free, I assumed the two facts were related. Turns out the marketing plan all along was to make it available for free for a very limited time. I encourage you to click here today to get a FREE download of it for your e-reader. I'm not sure how long it will be available at no charge, so don't hesitate!
