What Are You Reading?

Ever wonder what spawned F3, what a SadClown is, and the meaning of lexicon gems like MeanMeanStride, Dolphin, and Fern?  F3 co-founders Dredd (David Redding) and OBT (Tim Whitmire) are co-authors of Freed To Lead: F3 and the Unshackling of the Modern-day Warrior.  Have you read it?  If not, here are two ways to get yours hands on a copy of this quick read full of TruthNuggets.  

Step One:  Request one of four copies from Tony Robbins @F3TonyRobbins using the hashtag #FreedToLead.  After reading, sign your F3 name and Twitter handle on the inside cover. Then tweet that you've read it and are passing it along for another member of the PAX to enjoy using the hashtag #FreedToLead. Hand it off at your next post. New reader continues step one, repeat. 
Step Two:  Purchase a copy from Read and follow step one.
