40 Years with a Whistle: Life Lessons from the ...

40 Years with a Whistle - 40 years of coaching tips woven into a touching memoir of a coach's life Dan John has been performing as an athlete for six decades. His coaches - the mentors he describes in this audiobook - steered him on the narrow path toward success in both sports and life. These coaches emphasized performance, yes...but they all also insisted on the balance of health, fitness, and longevity.From Dan's introduction to 40 Years with a Whistle:I’ve learned a lot over those decades and would like to share these lessons with you. I didn’t want a book filled with “Xs” and “Os” or sets and reps. I wanted to share the lessons that apply to life and living.  I begin with what are clearly my 10 best lessons of coaching. Each of these works well for the teacher, student, parent, and neighbor too. Following the advice of the 10th lesson, I explore the stories of the people who shaped my career and the gems of advice they shared with me. I finish with my vision of coaching - basically looking at training from the big picture and the toolkit to allow one to succeed. The lessons are simple. The application is difficult. The rewards are worth everything. The lessons learned on the fields and in the gyms will lead to a successful life. Hop on board.  “As I listen through this audio book, over and over I found myself mentally saying, 'Yup' and 'Absolutely'. If you’re a coach, an athletic administrator or the parent of a school-age athlete, you need to listen this audio book. I know my coaching staff will be listening it.” (Chris Long, athletic director, Juan Diego Catholic High School) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan John.

Taking Shape - carmina figurata
33,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

An eclectic mix of shapes and subjects populate Taking Shape-Jan D. Hodge's full-length collection of carmina figurata (sometimes called shaped poems, pattern poetry, or figure poems). Hodge's many masterpieces include depictions of a saxophone, a Madonna and Child, a combination piano/guillotine, and other silhouettes of amazing difficulty and detail. These poems are not only visually stunning, they are also sonically beautiful, and retain a transcendent freedom while conforming to both illustrative and metrical constraints. Taking Shape is a visual feast of inspired poetry. PRAISE FOR TAKING SHAPE: Are not all printed formal poems shaped poems? The sonnet, the hymn, the sestina, and the ghazal all have characteristic shapes rather like boxes that confine their subjects. In Jan D. Hodge's Taking Shape the subjects have burst from their cages and confront us immediately with what they are. Then the words they are made of can reveal their inner beings. The long closure of 'Spring' describes the best way to read these poems. I have long known what prayer is, but I never knew what one looked like until I read 'Madonna and Child.' - Fred Chappell, author of The Fred Chappell Reader Here is a perfect matching of shapes and poetry.  Through a wide-ranging array of subjects and tones, Hodge's mastery of language within such challenging constraints is truly impressive.  Syntax and rhythm, metaphor and symbol (see for instance 'The One That Got Away' or 'The Lesson of the Snow'), conversational snippets and quatrains, are surprisingly nuanced. Even the occasional poems-wedding, elegy, Valentine's day, Halloween, Christmas, an early morning poetry reading-find new things to say and striking ways to say them. These poems reward reading again and again. - Robert J. Conley, author of Mountain Windsong Jan D. Hodge is the master par excellence of carmina figurata. In Taking Shape you'll see such word-pictures as the Chinese ideogram for spring; a harpsichord poised before a guillotine; a still life with quill pen and ink bottle, T-square and drafting triangle. More amazing still, Hodge forms many of the intricate images with metered language-in one case in medieval alliterative verse! In a poem about baseball Hodge writes, 'forgiveness/ is the best/ we dare hope for in this bruised world/ the thinnest/ chance that lets us somehow/ slide home free';  here 'only by grace . . . can we be safe.' Hodge knows of grace, his poems are full of grace, and Taking Shape, like grace itself, is a gift of utter beauty. - Vince Gotera, Editor, North American Review ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Having grown up in a letterpress print shop in small town Michigan, Jan D. Hodge received his BA and MA degrees from the University of Michigan and his PhD from the University of New Mexico, where he wrote his dissertation on Charles Dickens. He taught at Rockford (Illinois) College and at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa. His poems have appeared in Iambs & Trochees, American Arts Quarterly, Defined Providence, and many other print and online journals.<

Character: The Ultimate Success Factor demonstrates how character, expressed through perspective, action, and resilience, determines success. Based on the personal, corporate and military experiences of Dr. J. Phillip ('Jack') London, a successful defense industry executive, as well as many other real-life examples, the book presents the time-tested lessons behind character-driven success. The book insightfully explains that while a variety of factors form our abilities and influence the events in our lives, character is the key to long-term success. Character is a unique set of moral and ethical qualities that define what you believe in, what you stand for, and what you expect of yourself and others. London asserts that how you act on these qualities - your statement of character - will determine how far you will go; if you succeed or fail. Success is also uniquely defined as acting with honesty and integrity, performing to the best of your ability, and appreciating the people who helped you achieve your goals. Enduring success is never gained by unethical or unlawful means, for dubious purposes, or at great moral cost. The development of character-driven success is unveiled in 17 lessons grouped into five progressive sections. Based on the architectural wedge-shaped piece at the summit of an arch that holds the other pieces in place, the first section is titled Keystone: Character. Expressions of character, from personal behavior to the role and influence of others', form perspectives about success. The second section called Blueprint: Vision, adds the next step of deciding what you want to achieve. While taking the strategic steps of setting out the big picture, character is also developed by using judgment, dealing with change and the unexpected, and identifying unique opportunities to be distinctive. Structure: Action, the third section, focuses on the frequent challenges in achieving goals, such as struggles with taking the first steps, decisiveness, self-expression, and taking the lead. The value of our efforts is examined in the fourth section called Appraise: Resolve. Every so often we need, or are forced, to stop and assess things. Sometimes, it's assessing a risk. Other times, it's assessing whether to go any further. The final section, Build: Momentum, discusses the most important lesson; that we are building ourselves and our future, because we are all a work in progress. This is success in its most genuine and most realistic form.

Friends Divided: John Adams and Thomas Jefferson
77,99 € *

“This is an engrossing story, which Wood tells with a mastery of detail and a modern plainness of expression that makes a refreshing contrast with the 18th century locutions of his subjects.”   —The New York Times Book Review “Lucid and learned… Wood has become the leading historian of the ‘Founding Fathers’… Never has John Adams been more relevant than today.” —The Wall Street Journal 'Whenever I read Gordon Wood, the dean of eighteenth century American historians, I feel as if I am absorbing wisdom at the feet of the master. Friends Divided is teeming with exceptionally acute and unvarnished insights into Thomas Jefferson and John Adams as they do battle for the nation's soul. Jefferson's sunny, almost Panglossian, optimism, juxtaposed with the dark, dyspeptic musings of Adams, presents readers with nothing less than a vivid composite portrait of the American mind.' —Ron Chernow, author of Grant and Alexander Hamilton  “This magisterial double biography recounts not only the lives of these two greatest founders but also the creation of the republic. It describes the world’s first successful democratic revolution and the founding of the first non-monarchical republic. . .  it is a book about ideas as represented by two philosophical statesmen, and it makes political history and philosophy exciting. . . In Wood’s hands, Adams and Jefferson become Shakespearean in stature.” —Edith B. Gelles, The Washington Post “Excellent . . . Friends Divided is an engaging book that's sure to appeal to anyone with an abiding interest in Revolution-era America and the leaders who shaped the country. Beautifully written and with real insight into Jefferson and Adams, it's a worthy addition to the canon, and yet another compelling book from Wood.” —NPR “For decades now Gordon S. Wood, the Alva O. Way university professor of history at Brown and winner of the Pulitzer Prize, has been the go-to authority on everything related to the American Revolution. That Wood has written “Friends Divided’’ — a finely-crafted dual biography of Adams and Jefferson — is therefore a hearty cause for celebration. Every page sparkles with literary eloquence, flawless analysis, and dramatically plotted history that contains a lesson for a riven time.” — Douglas Brinkley, Boston Globe “Gordon Wood is one of America’s premier historians and a national treasure. Winner of the Pulitzer as well as the Bancroft Prize, he is a rare scholar who writes with a combination of insight, academic depth, and accessible prose. In his latest book, penned at the summit of his career, Wood now sets his sights on the relationship of two of America’s most remarkable and fascinating statesmen, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. The story is enthralling…In this magnificent book, Gordon Wood has continued his invaluable work.” — Jay Winik, National Review “In Friends Divided, Gordon S. Wood, a professor at Brown University and our finest historian of 18th-century America, provides a splendid account of the improbable friendship, estrangement and reconciliation between Adams, an irascible, ironic, hypersensitive middle-class New England lawyer, and Jefferson, a self-contained, diplomatic, slaveholding Virginia aristocrat.”  —Minneapolis Star Tribune “The acclaimed historian engages in a compelling examination of the complex relationship of the Founding Fathers…Among the other well-known personages in the narrative are Abigail Adams, Alexander Hamilton, and Benjamin Rush, all portrayed vividly by the author, whose approachable writing style is equal to his impressive archival research…An illuminating history of early Americans that is especially timely in the ugly, partisan-filled age of Trump.”  —Kirkus Reviews, starred review 'As the dean of American historians, Gordon Wood had long
