I am proud to announce that my book Slingshot: AMD's Fight to Free an Industry from the Ruthless Grip of Intel is now on sale. It is thrilling to see the book now in print and I am excited to have this opportunity to share the story of my life and to tell the behind-the-scenes story of AMD's battle with Intel. I have decided that all net proceeds from sales of this book will go to establish a scholarship fund for students in need at The University of Texas in Austin. Also, as we launch the book, I have been invited to participate in a number of interviews. Many have resulted in interesting news coverage. Some of my upcoming interviews will be broadcasted live and others will be taped and aired at a later date. Below is a list of scheduled interviews.
