After several months of work Smart Texas Basketball 2016, our preview of the Longhorn basketball season, is complete and ready for pre-order. While the book will be available in several popular electronic formats on October 24, you can reserve your copy today.
When Jonny Brashear (otherwise known as Bitterwhiteguy, our friend at Barking Carnival) and I started this project back in June our goal was to write something that we would want to read. I feel pretty good about the book. I would read it.
Some features of the book:
- A detailed look at the Texas offense and defense, including how we see coach Shaka Smart’s strategies playing out with the players on the roster.
- Our take on every player on the roster.
- A preview of Texas’ schedule including a deep look at the Big 12 Conference.
- An update on recruiting, along with profiles of the players Shaka Smart and his staff are pursuing for the fall of 2017.
- Original artwork.
The best part; the book is only $4.99. At 44,000 words, it works out to a little more than one penny per 100 words. That, my friends, is a tremendous value.
But wait, there is more. If you pre-order now, you will get something else — the joy of anticipation. You will be able to count down the days until you can download your copy; we suggest making a paper chain to help you monitor and more fully experience the passage of time. Each day when you remove a link from your chain, you will know that you are one day closer to being able to read our book.
So go ahead and pre-order today. The book will be available through both Amazon and iTunes. If you have a Kindle, you can read it. If you own Apple products, you can order it through iTunes and read it. If you own a computer, you can install the free Amazon Kindle reader and read it. If you have an Android phone or tablet, you can download the free Kindle app and read it. If the most advanced device in your house is an Etch A Sketch covered with Cabbage Patch Kids stickers, then buy the book for a friend and have them read it aloud to you.
We like our book and we think you will like it, too.
