<b>With inside access and reporting,<i> Sports Illustrated</i> senior baseball writer and FOX Sports analyst Tom Verducci reveals how Theo Epstein and Joe Maddon built, led, and inspired the Chicago Cubs team that broke the longest championship drought in sports, chronicling their epic journey to become World Series champions.<br /><br /> </b>It took 108 years, but it really happened. The Chicago Cubs are once again World Series champions. <br /><br /> How did a team composed of unknown, young players and supposedly washed-up veterans come together to break the Curse of the Billy Goat? Tom Verducci, twice named National Sportswriter of the Year and co-writer of The Yankee Years with Joe Torre, will have full access to team president Theo Epstein, manager Joe Maddon, and the players to tell the story of the Cubs' transformation from perennial underachievers to the best team in baseball. <br /><br /> Beginning with Epstein's first year with the team in 2011, Verducci will show how Epstein went beyond "Moneyball" thinking to turn around the franchise. Leading the organization with a manual called "The Cubs Way," he focused on the mental side of the game as much as the physical, emphasizing chemistry as well as statistics. <br /><br /> To accomplish his goal, Epstein needed manager Joe Maddon, an eccentric innovator, as his counterweight on the Cubs' bench.  A man who encourages themed road trips and late-arrival game days to loosen up his team, Maddon mixed New Age thinking with Old School leadership to help his players find their edge.  <br /><br /> <i>The Cubs Way</i> takes readers behind the scenes, chronicling how key players like Rizzo, Russell, Lester, and Arrieta were deftly brought into the organization by Epstein and coached by Maddon to outperform expectations. Together, Epstein and Maddon proved that clubhouse culture is as important as on-base-percentage, and that intangible components like personality, vibe, and positive energy are necessary for a team to perform to their fullest potential. <br /><br /> Verducci chronicles the playoff run that culminated in an instant classic Game Seven. He takes a broader look at the history of baseball in Chicago and the almost supernatural element to the team's repeated loses that kept fans suffering, but also served to strengthen their loyalty.  <br /><br /> <i>The Cubs Way </i>is a celebration of an iconic team and its journey to a World Championship that fans and readers will cherish for years to come.

1984/1999: anni duri per un tifoso dell’AS Roma. Anni in cui spesso si vinceva poco, e non stiamo parlando di trofei, ma proprio di partite. Anni di sconfitte che hanno lasciato ferite mai rimarginate, in cui al posto della Champions League c’era la Coppa Italia. Anni in cui andare a vedere una partita dal vivo era sicuramente più pericoloso di oggi, ma lo stadio si riempiva sempre e comunque, perché non ci si poneva nemmeno la domanda se ne valesse la pena. Chi era sugli spalti si sentiva protagonista, convinto che ogni punto sarebbe dipeso anche dal suo contributo vocale o coreografico, e i giocatori erano apprezzati e valutati per la grinta che mettevano in campo, non per il numero di followers. L’attaccamento alla maglia non era una frase fatta, e chi dimostrava di averlo riusciva a creare un legame con la gente che sarebbe durato più della propria carriera. Chi veniva a vedere una partita all’Olimpico aveva occhi innanzitutto per la Curva Sud, quasi incidentalmente guardava il gioco. E quando partiva il coro “Che sarà sarà”, speranze e sogni tornavano a mischiarsi tra fumogeni e bandiere giallorosse.

Handball training for kiddies and young children is different from handball training for older players and considerably different from handball training for competitive players. During their first contact with “handball”, kids should be familiarized with the ball in a playful way. They should be taught that being active, doing sports, playing together, and even playing against each other is fun.<br /><br />This book contains a short introduction to handball for kiddies and young children and its special characteristics as well as example exercises which help to make your training units interesting and more diverse. Following this, there are five complete training units of different difficulty levels that focus on the basic handball techniques (dribbling, passing, catching, shooting, and defending in a game with opponents). The kids are playfully introduced to the subsequent handball-specific basics. At the same time, particular attention is payed to general physical experience and the development of coordination skills. <br /><br />The exercises are illustrated and described in an easy, comprehensible manner. They can be immediately integrated in every training unit. By using the given training variants, you can easily adjust the difficulty level of the training units to the respective target group. The variants should also encourage you to modify and further develop the exercises to make each training unit a new and more diverse experience for the children.<br /><br />Contents<br />1. Basics of handball training for kiddies and young children<br />- Different movement options<br />- Coordination basics<br />- Fun through games and competitions<br />- Use of various play toys<br />2.

In the world of strength and conditioning, learning how to move others—not just physically, but also psychologically and emotionally—is paramount to getting the most out of them. People are the ultimate performance variable, and understanding how to effectively blend knowledge of proper training with the nuances of human behavior is integral to helping athletes achieve their ultimate goals. Unfortunately, while much attention has been given to the science of physical training, little attention has been given to the science of communication. Conscious Coaching: The Art and Science of Building Buy-In bridges this gap. Readers learn the foundational principles of improving relationships, enhancing engagement, and gaining the trust of athletes through targeted communication. And, every bit as important, readers also learn concrete strategies to apply these principles in day-to-day coaching situations they will inevitably encounter. The result is a game-changing book that sets the stage for coaches to create a culture of success not only within sport, but also beyond. Conscious Coaching is a movement and its time has come.

Featuring Forewords by Franco Harris and Dan Rooney<br /><br />Mean Joe Greene's memoir is a master class in determination, domination and perseverance. For the first time ever, the College and Pro Football Hall of Famer gives readers an unflinching look at his rise from high school bully-victim and bench warmer to North Texas legend and Steelers icon.<br /><br />Many years before he would anchor the most-feared, most-successful defense the NFL had ever seen, Joe Greene was just a big, timid kid from Temple, Texas struggling to find his confidence as a teenager being raised by a single mother.<br /><br />In his compelling, eye-opening autobiography, Greene takes readers on an unprecedented tour of his life, exploring the people who influenced him and the events that shaped him: from humiliating high school embarrassments to the grit and guts that led to four Super Bowl titles.<br /><br />Mean Joe Greene: Built By Football is the inside story of how a series of mentors, mindset changes and maybe some luck helped a young man turn a scholarship offer from a small college in Texas into a selection as an All-American, a first-round draft pick in the NFL and a life in football that would net him six Super Bowl rings, including two as a coach.<br /><br />As the first book in the Football Matters' 'Built By Football' series, Greene discusses how football helped shape his character, his leadership skills, taught him humility and integrity, and helped him learn the lessons he would use throughout his life as a player, husband, father, friend and coach.
