Book Summary:

Sarah Franklin needs to get her brain cells aligned. Not because of some broken love affair, though that would have been fun if she could remember such a thing. Sarah has just woken up from a coma, and the young woman is convinced she’s still in high school. Bill Petrov is a professor of physics at her new school. No way was he looking for a lover, but he is smitten with Sarah the first day of school. He knows better than to be attracted to a high school student, yet there’s something different about her. She reacts differently than other students, is totally serious, and absorbs everything in class. When they talk, she teases Bill, offering innuendo or suggestions that totally take him off guard. Analyzing their conversations later, he realizes her words are out of sync with today’s teenage lingo and are more like those of a colleague than a student. The paradox only increases his fascination with her. He looks forward to seeing Sarah every day, exchanging a smile, or wondering what she’ll say next to unnerve him. Sarah is totally unprepared for the onset of her feelings toward her teacher, yet she still looks forward to her physics class without any understanding of why it makes her so happy. Will Sarah remember her past, and what will happen when … if she does?

Book Summary:

This is the absolutely guaranteed 100% mostly true story of Terry Bradshaw: the man who gained sports immortality as the first quarterback to win four Super Bowls -- and the man who later became America's most popular sports broadcaster. IT'S ONLY A GAME "I had a real job once," begins a memoir as honest, unexpected, and downright hysterical as Bradshaw himself. From his humble beginnings in Shreveport, Louisiana, to his success as the centerpiece of the highest-rated football studio show in television history, Terry has always understood the importance of hard work. A veritable jack-of-all-trades, he has probably held more jobs than any other football Hall of Famer ever: pipeline worker, youth minister, professional singer, actor, television and radio talk show host, and now one of the nation's most popular speakers. But let's not forget one of the reasons why so many people know and love Terry Bradshaw: he won four Super Bowls! In It's Only A Game, Terry brings the reader right into the huddle and describes the game from the bottom of a two-ton pile to the top of the sports world. You'll sit right on the fifty-yard line and watch as Terry earns the title world's greatest benchwarmer. And you'll also hear about the single greatest play in pro football -- the Immaculate Reception -- as he never saw it. It's Only A Game is much more than a collection of Terry Bradshaw's favorite and funniest stories, it is the personal account of a great man's search for life before and after football...as only Terry could tell it.

Book Summary:

In place of a 3rd printing of his original book, Youth, Sports, & Self-Esteem: A Guide for Parents, Dr. Darrell Burnett, a published authority on parenting, decided to revise his popular book, adding some sportsmanship checklists, and changing the title to It's Just a Game! to reflect the importance of keeping youth sports in the proper perspective. While discussing the psychology of youth sports, Dr. Burnett not only points out how sports can strengthen a child's self-esteem, he offers specific practical positive parenting guidelines to help make it happen. Topics include: •The four cornerstones of self-esteem •12 guidelines for promoting children's self-esteem through youth sports •Case examples, photos, cartoons, references •Skill, behavior, and sportsmanship checklists •A Parent Attitude & Behavior Checklist for youth sports •A list of 86 Ways To Say "Very Good!" The book's theme is straightforward: kids have enough pressure in life, and youth sports should not add to it. Youth sports can and should promote self-esteem, offering every youngster an opportunity to enjoy the simple fun of participating in sports, while learning skills, feeling good, and building positive childhood memories. Dr. Burnett's book gives parents a blueprint for building those memories.

Book Summary:

It's not just a game for interim manager Bo Fromhart who pits a career of frustration against a boss whose career dream hinges on his failure. Paul Dirkson, general manager of the new New Orleans Pelicans can take over the business empire of his father-in-law and team owner if he can unload a huge gambling debt by somehow manipulatating anything but a top finish for the Pelicans in their division. It appears a no-brainer. The team lost 101 games the previous year, but Dirkson is forced into desperate moves when Bo comes up with new talent and a resurgence of some old pros.
