This book is about the life of Ted Owens - still the coach with the most wins in the history of Allen Fieldhouse - from growing up as a boy on a cotton farm in southwestern Oklahoma during the Great Depression to eventually coaching at the highest levels of the college basketball world. "At the end of each day on the farm, we would figure the total weight of the cotton we had pulled. We called it the "hang-up," says Owens. One day, in a competition to see who could pull the most cotton, Owens was leading his father, who then he gave him the greatest life lesson: "It's not what you have now that is important, it's what you have at the hang-up." He always reminded Ted that regardless of your station in life, whether encountering difficulties or enjoying success, you should never lose sight of your ultimate goals. The book is a story of the survival of a family built upon love, sacrifice, and the importance of family strength.At the age of 5, Owens made his first basketball goal. It was at that moment that basketball became his first love. He went on to play at the University of Oklahoma for Naismith Hall of Fame Coach Bruce Drake, and he witnessed the rise of national championship programs led by football coach Bud Wilkinson, wrestling coach Port Robertson and baseball coach Jack Baer. The book shares the ups and downs of building a coaching career. Owens' teams won 206 games in Allen Fieldhouse, a number that still leads today. He coached some of the era's greatest players while leading the Jayhawks against Hall of Fame coaches. The book offers little-known--and even unknown--insights into the personalities of these basketball giants.Playing now in the fourth quarter of his life, Owens shares what he has learned, passing on his lessons for life and wonderful, never-before-told stories of his time as a Kansas Jayhawks head basketball coach, a high-pressure job as there is in American sports, one that only eight men have held.

In -Chasing the Runner's High-, Ray Charbonneau tells the story how he pushed his addiction to running up to, and then past, his limits. There are plenty of hard miles, but there's lots of fun along the way too as Ray shares what he learned, what he should have learned, and what he still has to learn from running. Marshall Ulrich, 4-time winner of the Badwater Ultramarathon and author of -Running on Empty-, calls Chasing the Runner's High -a look at one man's life and obsession with running and addictive behaviors.

Adena Schulzberg, winner of the 2006 Arkansas Marathon, writes, -these are brutally honest tales, told with candor and frankness about strength, courage, obsession, desire and hard won understanding of self and sport.- It's a great read for runners or for non-runners who want to understand their running friends. www.y42k.com/books/chasingtherunnershigh.html

WAS HE THE VOICE OF 'DOOM' OR THE SOOTHSAYER OF THE SPACE GENERATION? NASA REPORTER OTTO BINDER ASKED THESE PERPLEXING QUESTIONS? Have We Been Sent-And Ignored-Messages From Spacemen? Do The Saucer Intelligences Control Our Weather, Our Civilizations, Our Very Lives With Their Incredible Advanced Science? Has One Man, TED OWENS, Really Been Selected To "Relay" Their Warnings And Predictions? DO WE HAVE IN OUR MIDST A 'SPOKESMAN' FOR THE UFOS? ================================================================ When the original edition of HOW TO CONTACT SPACE PEOPLE appeared in l969 courtesy of Gray Barker's Saucerian Press, hundreds reported "miracles" and supernatural experiences upon carrying or wearing one of the special "Space Intelligence" discs that were provided by Ted Owens . We are producing a similar disc based on the identical design and will include details how you can get one for yourself FREE OF CHARGE as a bonus when ordering this fabulous volume. Says one researcher who calls himself simply "Jinn" and believes the UFOs are extra dimensional: "Many people who investigated Ted Owens testified that he could predict and control lightning, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and volcanoes. He claimed he was in telepathic contact with other dimensional beings he called Space Intelligences who trained him since early childhood to communicate with them and co-create tremendous large scale psychokinetic effects. . . Ted Owens could be the greatest parapsychological finds in history. He performed about 200 "miracles" in association with the SI's. . . and considered himself to be the "Earth ambassador of UFO intelligences" and compared himself to Moses, whom he said also worked with the SI's." Some people thought Owens delusional; others believed something dramatic had happened in his life to cause these telekinetic events to occur around him regularly. Decide for yourself when you order HOW TO CONTACT THE SPACE PEOPLE and learn how at no additional cost you can receive your own energized purple SI disc, an authentic replica of the one Ted Owens claims he used to contact the space intelligence himself without interference.
