So after four years of getting by on the 2010 revision we've gone ahead with a swell update for Winter 2014. So much has happened in those four years we had to get it done: the Pro Leagues, serious talk of the Olympics and recognition of the sport by the IOC and USOC, car commercials, the Triple Crown Tour, the "pot-brownie" incident, the rise of MKBHD and of course, Brodie Smith. All of it is in this new edition.

The catch? Who wants a paperback anymore? This new edition is an eBook vesion only.

Amazon Kindle NOTE:
There's an "automatic update" feature the customer needs to turn on on their Kindle to get the new revision FO'FREE. And then the new text should upload to them. BUT -- Garth at Breakaway Books (thanks Garth!) had to contact Amazon and tell them to push this revision out to previous buyers of the e-book. It may take them a while to review the changes and then push it out. So if you slack off it might be pushed to you anyway. Or not.
