    Itís been a while since Iíve posted, but Iím back from the dead with something that you all might be interested in, and which might be also be shameless self-promotion.

    One of the best things about Formula SAE is the stories you pick up along the way; from ill-advised keg parties in Detroit hotel rooms to that time a particular team from the Midwest accidentally set the better part of Missouri on fire. I decided to take the stories from our build blog, the emails, and the memories from my senior year and condense them down into a book.

    I think this gives an entertaining account of not only my senior year, but paints a pretty good picture of life on a Formula team in general. I made it pretty accessible to people who donít know FSAE but also entertaining for those who have been there, and hopefully helpful and illuminating to anyone on a team now.

    Paperback is a whopping $5 if you use this coupon code: NT6MWD8J. Ebooks are 99 cents for the Kindle, Nook, and iPad. iPad version is non DRM.

    The first two chapters are free here in PDF or EPUB .

    I hope you enjoy the read, and I hope you also fondly remember the good times of your Formula experience, and conveniently forget the way it really was

    Well, I'm hooked!
    I'm surprised it's taken this long for someone to put together something like this. But I must say, it's brilliant.

    Ditto

    This looks great, I've been waiting for someone to do this for a little while, I wondered if Geoff "Big Bird" Pearson was going to be the first but congratulations on getting it done first!

    Excellent. Money coming as well.

    You literally just made my day. I was looking for something to do during my flight home. Watching Truth in 24 again will not take my entire flight, so a great read about FSAE/life will be perfect.

    Awesome! 5 US Dollars are on the way from Germany as well... Plus another 6.something for shipping. Createspace said it is going to be delivered 11th of January, wtf??? Is someone going to take it across the ocean in a rowing boat?

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. I've kind of always expected a book or a made for tv movie or something about FSAE, there are so many people involved. Hopefully we can get some more books and stories written; I would love to see other people's adventures in FSAE.

    Wow, sorry for the wait, though $6 shipping halfway around the world isn't bad. If you want to PM me your email, I can send you the PDF.
