Jerry Yang selling Ebook for Free

by Jeremy Olson on July 19, 2013

After winning the 2007 WSOP Main Event, Jerry Yang shipped a massive $8,250,000 top prize. Since that time, Yang has failed to make much of an impact on the poker scene after winning $154k over the past six years.

This being said, most people don’t exactly see him as the world’s biggest authority on poker. And this is probably a big reason why he’s currently giving his ebook away for free on

The ebook is called All In: From Refugee Camp to Poker Champ and it documents his childhood in northern Laos, how his family escaped the Communist regime then spent a horrific year in a Thai prison camp, and how he would come to be a poker champion. Here’s an excerpt from the Amazon page:

Born in the mountains of northern Laos, Jerry spent four and a half years in a Thai refugee camp after his family escaped the Communist forces. He endured horrific living conditions there and watched his family members die at gunpoint, but miraculously escaped and immigrated to the United States. From his first chance encounter with poker to winning the 2007 World Series of Poker, his struggles and achievements are chronicled here.

It details Jerry’s domination in the sport and how he uses his winnings to give back to the organizations that fed and clothed him during his childhood at the refugee camp. This autobiography is truly inspirational and is a reminder that the American dream is attainable for those with the courage and tenacity to pursue it.

If you’ve ever had any interest whatsoever in Jerry Yang’s life or poker career, it’s definitely worth checking out the free ebook. You can also buy the hardback version for $18.53, but who wants to do that when you can get it for free through a Kindle?
