Freebie Friday World Series Edition: Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey

Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball, narrated Ben Hunter, is today’s give-away from Christianaudio. The start of the World Series is the perfect time for this memoir from the New York Mets starting pitcher. Christianaudio describes this audiobook as the story of a man “Sustained by his profound Christian faith, the love of his wife and children, and a relentless quest for self-awareness and authenticity, the immensely likable Dickey details his transformation from a reckless, risk-taking loner to a grounded, life-affirming big leaguer. He emerged as one of the premier pitchers in the National League in 2010-and the knuckleballing embodiment of the wonders that perseverance and human wisdom can produce.” If you’d like to be the winner, I have one copy of  Wherever I Wind Up for today’s Freebie Friday feature. Just leave a comment below and I’ll announce the winner on November 9th.

Plus, don’t forget that Christianaudio has a free audiobook download for everyone featured each month on their website. You have a few more days to grab this month’s freebie, How Should Christians Vote? by Tony Evans, narrated by Mirron Willis.

    I’m not much of a baseball fan but I love listening to biographies. The common theme that runs through most of the biographies I’ve read or listened to is that success or becoming famous doesn’t just happen. Most of the people have overcome huge obstacles and/or sacrificed much to achieve their goals. This sounds like a book I would enjoy listening to…thanks for the opportunity to win a copy.

    I am biased as the publisher of the book, but really did love the book. The story is much more than just rags to riches. He endured some pretty terrible things in his life and has used those experiences to better understand and grow in his faith. At the end of the book, you find yourself rooting for him regardless if you are a sports fan. Excellent narration too!

    So cool. I am a lifelong NY Mets fan, and R.A. was one of the bright spots for the Mets this past year. I am really looking forward to reading this entire book. He is well-liked and respected, not just for his achievements on the field but his perseverance.
