Hype and Glory

Tracing the footballing fortunes of ten England managers, this text shows just why the England football team has struggled to live with the weight of expectation.

Hype and Glory

England has singularly failed to make any impact at either the World Cup or the European Championships for more than 40 years--this book explains why, with the help of exclusive interviews with players, managers, and commentators There have been 20 major international soccer tournaments since that Saturday in July 1966 when Bobby Moore lifted the World Cup trophy for England. As each of these competitions has come around, a wave of expectation in the country has been followed, with seeming inevitability, by disappointment just weeks later. But with just three semi-final appearances to show for more than 40 years of effort and pain, why does England--as a team and as a nation--continue to believe that it has an almost divine right to succeed in international soccer? Tracing the fortunes of 10 England managers--Ramsey, Revie, Greenwood, Robson, Taylor, Venables, Hoddle, Eriksson, McLaren, and Capello--this book shows just why the England team has struggled to live with the weight of expectation. Full of dramatic on-field action and dressing room gossip, it vividly recreates the highs and lows, the agony and ecstacy, the close calls and the humiliations, and pinpoints precisely why things have always gone so badly wrong.

Little League  Big Dreams

It's just like the pros: bright lights, screaming fans, squawking commentators and five million people watching you play your heart out on national television for the right to be called champions. But these are not pampered multimillion-dollar athletes; they are 11- to 13-year-old kids. The 2005 World Series was the most dramatic in the 58-year history of the Little League. With full access to the players, coaches and parents associated with both teams who played in that game, Charles Euchner delivers an astonishing and dramatic narrative that delves into every aspect of the little league game. "Even those with only a passing interest in baseball will be intrigued by this fascinating look at Little League, 'the largest amateur sports organization in the world.'" -Publishers Weekly "Readers can expect to learn a great deal about the history of Little League and the stories behind many teams. This well-written book will inform and entertain." -Library Journal

Zentrepreneurism

The world of service coupled with entrepreneurial success has been building for the past thirty years. Only now has it begun to explode with great strides and creativity. We seek a life where our families, businesses, and our efforts merge into a single harmonious whole-and where we measure our success in more ways than just the balance of our bank accounts. This book can bring back the values in our lives that often get lost in the quest for success. One does not have to be a Buddhist to benefit, as the success stories within will testify to, but should simply be open to trying a powerful, compassionate, new way of doing things in the business world. Instead of the greedy, short-sighted business mentality of the past, we can move into areas that will improve the lives of many others beyond, but still including, ourselves. With the ever-increasing value of service on the rise, one can actually achieve larger success in many cases, than if generosity and service were not creatively employed.

Moment Of Glory

After winning six of the twelve majors played from 2000 to 2002, Tiger Woods was struggling with his golf swing in 2003, leaving him out of the running at the US open and the PGA. As a consequence, 2003 saw four first-time major champions: Ben Curtis, Mike Weir, Jim Furyk and Shaun Micheel. After their respective upsets, the four players have had little success, however. Micheel and Curtis jumped from obscurity to stardom and subsequently overplayed all over the world. Neither has won another major, and Weir has only won one other major, in 2004. In Moment of Glory, John Feinstein returns to this unlikely year and chronicles the personal and professional struggles the four players have experienced since then. With his great affection for the underdog and extraordinary access, he gives readers an insider's look at how winning (and losing) major championships changes players' lives.

Cold Glory

Cold Glory is the exciting start to a brand-new thriller series by B. Kent Anderson. When the first page of a shocking Civil War-era document is unearthed in Oklahoma, history professor Nick Journey is called in to evaluate the find--and is promptly attacked by two men armed with Special Forces weapons. Federal agent Meg Tolman's investigation into Journey's attack uncovers more troubling questions than answers. She soon finds herself joining Journey's cross-country quest to recover and protect the missing pages. A shadowy group, the Glory Warriors, have been desperately searching for this explosive document to legitimize what is nothing less than a military coup. After their first attempt to steal it from Journey fails, they follow him, knowing that he holds the key to uncovering the long-lost papers. They also set their plan into motion and begin assassinating key political figures. As the country plunges into chaos, Journey and Tolman search frantically for the remaining pages. And the Glory Warrior operatives are hot on their trail.... At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Glimpses of Glory

Glimpses of Glory looks around the corners and peeks into the hidden places in life, places where deep spiritual truths reside but remain unseen. By sharing poems and prose that speak winsomely and insightfully of life’s realities, Peggy A. Keady offers a collection of Christmas Letters and Faith Notes that foster in its readers a desire to explore the themes of a rich life: beginnings, changes, companionship, new life, time, and trust. Perhaps because of her varied experiences working as an educator and counselor in public schools, churches, hospitals, and nursing-care facilities, the author found she was attuned to how the glimpses of glory she spotted in one place could be made visible to people in other places. As a result, she turned a series of annual Christmas letters and a run of monthly newsletter articles into Glimpses of Glory. If you yearn to learn more about how spiritual power can pervade and enrich your life, then you will find in Glimpses of Glory a guide for uncovering often overlooked spiritual truths. “An uplifting compilation of inspirational vignettes sure to calm the troubled spirit and renew faith in the eternity of the soul.” —Charlsie Russell, author and owner of Loblolly Writer’s House

An Uncertain Glory

From two of India's leading economists, Jean Drèze (Hunger and Public Action) and Nobel Prize-winner Amartya Sen (The Idea of Justice), An Uncertain Glory is a passionate, considered argument for the need for a greater understanding of inequalities in India, despite economic development. When India regained independence from colonial rule in 1947, it immediately adopted a firmly democratic political system, with multiple parties, freedom of speech and extensive political rights. The famines of the British era disappeared, and steady economic growth replaced stagnation, accelerating further over the last three decades to make India's growth the second fastest among large economies. Despite a recent dip, it is still one of the highest in the world. Maintaining rapid yet environmentally sustainable growth remains an important and achieveable goal for India. Drèze and Sen argue that the country's main problems lie in the disregarding of the essential needs of the people. There have been major failures both to foster participatory growth and to make good use of the public resources generated by economic growth to enhance people's living conditions; social and physical services remain inadequate, from schooling and medical care to safe water, electricity, and sanitation. In the long run, even high economic growth is threatened by the underdevelopment of infrastructure and the neglect of human capabilities, in contrast with the holistic approach pioneered by Japan, South Korea and China. In a democracy, addressing these failures requires not only significant policy change, but also a clearer public understanding of the abysmal extent of deprivation in the country. Yet public discussion in India tends to be constricted to the lives and concerns of the relatively affluent. This book presents a powerful analysis not only of India's deprivations and inequalities, but also of the restraints on addressing them - and of the possibility of change through democratic practice.

Hockey threw him into ignominy and then suddenly made him famous. This is the dramatic life of goalkeeper Mir Ranjan Negi who was the much- lauded coach of the cast of the film Chak De India made by Yash Raj Films. His account of his fall from grace on national television in front of a whole nation, in the finals against Pakistan in the Delhi Asiad, is as moving as his fight for his redemption. The book holds out some hope that hockey can regain the glory it once enjoyed in the world arena. A truly inspiring book about sportsmanship and the doughty wielders of the hockey stick which one hopes will shake a one-game obsessed nation into sitting up and noticing the unsung heroes our national sport.

A Farewell to Glory

It began in November 1896 when football was still in its infancy. About 500 people turned out on a soggy field in Worcester, Massachusetts to watch Holy Cross battler Boston College. That game initiated one of the great rivalries in football history. Itinvolved some of the most famous players and coaches to ever step on a football field. In its 91 years, the rivalry spawned controversy, contention, fierce competitiveness, elation, gloom, and great moments. It was also linked to heart-breaking tragedy. In the end, the rivalry of the two Jesuit colleges, Boston college and Holy Cross, would prove to be a microcosm of intercollegiate sports.

Guts  Grace  and Glory

When everything is on the line, great men turn to strength and faith—in football and in life. In Guts, Grace, and Glory Dr. Jim Grassi shows how to incorporate faith and endurance on a daily basis—not just to win at football, but to win at life. Anecdotes from the greatest players in the game—Johnny Unitas, Tim Tebow, Paul Bear Bryant, RGIII, Bryan "Bart" Starr, Matt Hasselbeck, and more—and their coaches demonstrate how glory, on and off the field, hinges on a solid relationship with God and the guts with which one plays out life’s challenges. The book touches on several life-affirming topics including setting your heart and mind on the eternal, living your life as a model of Christ, and building a legacy that lasts.
