I first learned of the inspirational yet tragic story of Ed Thomas in March, 2010. The moment I heard it, I knew I had to write the book. He invested his life in a small group of students and football players in a tiny little town in northeast Iowa, yet his life made an incredible impact. Even if you couldn't care less about football, you will want to read this book. Order it here: The Sacred Acre: The Ed Thomas Story
At long last my book with 2007 World Series of Poker Champion Jerry Yang is now in stores. One day in 2005 Jerry happened across the WSOP on television and paused to watch. He'd never played cards in his life, yet after watching for one hour he stood and proclaimed to his wife, "I can do this, and when I win, I will use the money for good." Two years later he was world champion, and that's not even the best part of his story. "All In" takes you from the hills of Laos to the WSOP final table. You travel with Jerry and his family as they flee through the jungle, communist soldiers hot on their trail. This is, without a doubt, one of the most emotionally compelling stories I've ever had the privilege of telling. Order it here: All In: From Refugee Camp to Poker Champ
