"Pete Paciorek has taken on an important leadership role with his character curriculum to teach the important lessons that at the end of the game, and at the end of the day, identify the true winners." --Fred Claire, Los Angeles Dodgers World Series Champion General Manager. "Pete Paciorek is a trailblazer in character development in youth sports. He has conducted extensive research on character literacy and I feel that he has crafted the most impactful character development curriculum available in the youth sport industry today." --Dr. Michael Sagas, Professor and Chair of Department of Tourism, Recreation, and Sport Management at the University of Florida. Sports play an integral role in the development of our children and young adults in America. Yet, over the past decade, the delivery system of character through sports has gone off course. The author, long-time coach Pete Paciorek, provides a thorough analysis of the two major causes for this decline and, more importantly, he provides systematic solutions for parents, coaches, and sports managers to help bring back the sanctity of youth and amateur athletics.This guidebook is designed for facilitating a building-block approach for the user in promoting and assessing life-long character growth through the vehicle of athletics. The content provides a unique blend of the theoretical studies on youth and amateur sport, the author's University of Florida supported research projects, and 25 powerful contributions from the likes of Olympic gold medalists, World and National Champions, and 40+ year veteran youth coaches. The triangulation and intersection of these three components supports the author's 25 character value curriculum. This book makes for an inspiring and motivational read through personal narratives and real-life defining moments in sports that translate into success in life after sports. The content of this guidebook provides the foundation of Pete Paciorek's non-profit organization, "Character Loves Company," which he established as a means to mentoring junior high school and high school students across the country through his 8-week Character Literacy Development (CLD) curriculum.Find the supplemental guide for coaches and parents at the end of the book.

The bestselling inspirational book in which the author reunites with a childhood football hero, now a minister and coach, and witnesses a revelatory demonstration of the true meaning of manhood. Joe Ehrmann, a former NFL football star and volunteer coach for the Gilman high school football team, teaches his players the keys to successful defense: penetrate, pursue, punish, love. Love? A former captain of the Baltimore Colts and now an ordained minister, Ehrmann is serious about the game of football but even more serious about the purpose of life. Season of Life is his inspirational story as told by Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Jeffrey Marx, who was a ballboy for the Colts when he first met Ehrmann. Ehrmann now devotes his life to teaching young men a whole new meaning of masculinity. He teaches the boys at Gilman the precepts of his Building Men for Others program: Being a man means emphasizing relationships and having a cause bigger than yourself. It means accepting responsibility and leading courageously. It means that empathy, integrity, and living a life of service to others are more important than points on a scoreboard. Decades after he first met Ehrmann, Jeffrey Marx renewed their friendship and watched his childhood hero putting his principles into action. While chronicling a season with the Gilman Greyhounds, Marx witnessed the most extraordinary sports program he’d ever seen, where players say “I love you” to each other and coaches profess their love for their players. Off the field Marx sat with Ehrmann and absorbed life lessons that led him to reexamine his own unresolved relationship with his father. Season of Life is a book about what it means to be a man of substance and impact. It is a moving story that will resonate with athletes, coaches, parents—anyone struggling to make the right choices in life.

DIV In her entertaining and edifying New York Times bestseller, acclaimed author Francine Prose invites you to sit by her side and take a guided tour of the tools and tricks of the masters to discover why their work has endured. Written with passion, humour and wisdom, Reading Like a Writer will inspire readers to return to literature with a fresh eye and an eager heart – to take pleasure in the long and magnificent sentences of Philip Roth and the breathtaking paragraphs of Isaac Babel; to look to John le Carré for a lesson in how to advance plot through dialogue and to Flannery O’Connor for the cunning use of the telling detail; to be inspired by Emily Brontë’s structural nuance and Charles Dickens’s deceptively simple narrative techniques. Most importantly, Prose cautions readers to slow down and pay attention to words, the raw material out of which all literature is crafted, and reminds us that good writing comes out of good reading. /div

We all have dreams—things we fantasize about doing and generally never get around to. This is the story of Azar Nafisi’s dream and of the nightmare that made it come true. For two years before she left Iran in 1997, Nafisi gathered seven young women at her house every Thursday morning to read and discuss forbidden works of Western literature. They were all former students whom she had taught at university. Some came from conservative and religious families, others were progressive and secular; several had spent time in jail. They were shy and uncomfortable at first, unaccustomed to being asked to speak their minds, but soon they began to open up and to speak more freely, not only about the novels they were reading but also about themselves, their dreams and disappointments. Their stories intertwined with those they were reading—Pride and Prejudice, Washington Square, Daisy Miller and Lolita—their Lolita, as they imagined her in Tehran. Nafisi’s account flashes back to the early days of the revolution, when she first started teaching at the University of Tehran amid the swirl of protests and demonstrations. In those frenetic days, the students took control of the university, expelled faculty members and purged the curriculum. When a radical Islamist in Nafisi’s class questioned her decision to teach The Great Gatsby, which he saw as an immoral work that preached falsehoods of “the Great Satan,” she decided to let him put Gatsby on trial and stood as the sole witness for the defense. Azar Nafisi’s luminous tale offers a fascinating portrait of the Iran-Iraq war viewed from Tehran and gives us a rare glimpse, from the inside, of women’s lives in revolutionary Iran. It is a work of great passion and poetic beauty, written with a startlingly original voice. From the Hardcover edition.
