BOOK EXCERPT:

ABOUT THE BOOK The book expands on an article, Coach Fitz's Management Theory, Lewis wrote for The New York Times in 2004. A mere 90 pages, the book lacks definitive chapters. Instead, it is simply organized into sections that alternate between flashbacks from Lewis high school years of 1975-8, and his investigation of a conflict at his alma mater in 2004. Lewis constructs his story around themes of duality: past and present, boy and man, coach and parents, fans and critics, memory and investigation, invention and truth. The end result combines a deeply personal memoir about an influential figure from Lewis' boyhood with an exploration into the modern coach-athlete relationship. MEET THE AUTHOR Anita Y. Tsuchiya has been writing for pay for about 15 years. She is fluent in a variety of styles--journalistic, academic, scientific, technical; and across a variety of media--print, web, social.

Long ago, she was a sponsored athlete and speed freak. Nowadays, she prefers the pursuit of inner peace through yoga and tai qi. She grew up in the Bay Area of California back when Silicon Valley was prune orchards and garlic fields, graduating from San Leandro High and then U.C. Davis. After a decade of living in the Pacific Northwest, shes now happily settled in Salt Lake City, Utah although she does miss the seafood.

The point, Coach Fitz tells them, is they are spending all their energies on foolish and frivolous activities instead of preparing for those challenges in life that cannot be resolved with anything other than hard work. He reminds them that hard work, not their parents payment of the school tuition, is how ballplayers make the team. With this generational psychology at play, its no wonder Baby Boomer coaches feel frustrated trying to communicate with todays young athletes. And the frustration is mutual. Old-school mannerisms, such as eye contact and a firm handshake, are meant to convey professionalism and confidence.

BOOK EXCERPT:

From the legendary basketball coach who inspired generations of athletes and businesspeople, an inspiring book about the power of mentoring and being mentored. After eight books, many of them bestsellers, A Game Plan for Life was the one closest to John Wooden's heart: a moving and inspirational guide to the power of mentorship. The first half focuses on the people who helped foster the values that carried Wooden through an incredibly successful and famously principled career, including his father, his college coach, his wife, Mahatma Gandhi, and Mother Teresa. The second half is built around interviews with some of the many people he mentored over the years, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Bill Walton. Their testimony takes readers inside the lessons Wooden taught to generations of players, bringing out the very best in them not just as athletes but as human beings. In all, this is an inspiring primer on how to achieve success without sacrificing principles and how to build one of the most productive and rewarding relationships available to any athlete, businessperson, teacher, or parent-that of mentor and protégé.

BOOK EXCERPT:

As head coach of the University of Nebraska Cornhuskers for twenty-five years, Tom Osborne had one of the most impressive records in college football. Before retiring in 1997, he took his team to a bowl game every year, won three national championships in the last four years he coached, and ended his career boasting an almost unheard of 84 percent winning record. But while these numbers testify to an undeniable accomplishment, it has been another, more powerful force that has shaped Tom's life: his faith. In Faith in the Game, this legendary coach shares the philosophy he used to create not only a champion football team but also a meaningful life. Both a memoir of Osborne's career with the Cornhuskers and an inspirational guide to making the most out of life by cultivating core values like honesty, courage, and loyalty, Faith in the Game presents the traits Osborne helped to instill in his team--traits that helped the Cornhuskers achieve their spectacular level of success. Osborne focuses on the aspects of character that he has emphasized in his work on and off the field, illustrated with compelling behind-the-scenes stories of the Nebraska football team. Conveyed with his own captivating integrity, Osborne's message reveals the value of hard work, the importance of finding a balance between our professional and personal obligations, and, above all, the importance of bringing faith into our lives to help us through times of crisis. Tom Osborne is beloved not only for his outstanding record but also for the commitment and dedication he has always shown to his players and coaching staff as a mentor, coach, and friend. His ability to motivate a team has come not with last-minute pep talks but through a focus on consistency and strength of character. "Winning," as he writes in Faith in the Game, "is a by-product of sound preparation." For those seeking a spiritually centered approach to living and working, this candid account of Tom Osborne's faith and strength is a warm and authentic book from which all of us can learn.
