Planet iPad Daily Free Book Alert, Friday, November 5: A highly readable take on leadership from a highly revered sports legend, plus ... Deborah Wallis' new thriller, Sweet Dreams and Flying Machines (Today's Sponsor)

"I am not a role model" proclaims LeBron James in a self-absorbed 90-second Nike commercial that is difficult to avoid on television these days. In counterpoint, consider the gentlemen -- like these two who measure well over 14 feet between them but stand even taller -- who learned their life lessons from the late UCLA basketball coaching legend, John Wooden. "What should I do?" is, for most of Wooden's past acolytes, an answered question. As Wooden once told one of his most troublesome but talented stars, "Walton, it's what you learn after you know it all that counts." Today's latest addition to our Free Book Alert listing offers a glimpse into what Walton and others learned and how they learned it....

But first, a word from ... Today's Sponsor

It has become a cliche to say that you couldn t put a book down, but I literally stayed up all night turning the pages of Deborah Wallis's new thriller. Sweet Dreams and Flying Machines gives the reader a rare glimpse behind the Marine Corps chain link fences. This rip-snorting read offers real insights into the day-to-day events, the politics, the competition, and, yes, the intrigues of the military life. And it will keep you biting your nails the whole time.

For the first time in more than a year, Abby Weaver's family is together when her husband, Major Danny Weaver, returns home safely from Iraq. But only a few months later, a twist of fate puts him in the cockpit of a Harrier spinning out of control during the Cherry Point Air Show. Abby and her six-year-old son, Chris, watch in horror as their lives explode in a fiery crash on the tarmac in front of them.

Was it an accident or murder? Determined to find out what happened, Abby is drawn into the same sordid squadron secrets that Danny had stumbled onto before his death, secrets someone may have wanted concealed badly enough to kill for. As she hunts the person she believes murdered her husband, Abby becomes the hunted in this heart-pounding page-turner.
