  • Flip The Script


    Ed Orgeron, head coach of the record-breaking national champion LSU Tigers football team, tells the inspiring story of reversing the team’s fortunes and culture, as well as his own remarkable leadership journey from disappointment and setback to the apex of college sports.

    The storybook football season for the LSU Tigers in 2019 was the stuff of legend: a team with recently unmet expectations became the undefeated national champion with a Heisman trophy-winning transfer quarterback under the leadership of a coach whose previous coaching stops had been disappointments. Yet that coach, Ed Orgeron, had turned everything around. He flipped the script, transforming a program that lately had not reached its potential into a team of unprecedented dominance. Flip the Script is the story of how it happened, with lessons for anyone who wants to succeed. Telling the story of his own journey that culminated in the Cinderella season, Orgeron highlights the traits he learned are necessary for success:
    *an ability and willingness to learn from mistakes,
    *the necessity of perseverance,
    *recognizing and focusing on what you’re truly good at,building unity, and
    *overcoming hardship.

    The road to success is never easy, as Ed Orgeron’s life reveals. But his life also shows that with determination and a willingness to learn from experience, your trajectory can change–your script can be flipped–and you can achieve more than you ever dreamed.

  • Year Of Playing Catch

    Ethan Bryan played and wrote about baseball for years. Then his daughters challenged him to set out on a year-long experiment: to play catch with someone every day. This experience led him across 10 states and 12,000 miles on a quest both quixotic and inspiring.

    *How play can reignite a fire within you and transform your life
    *How to find joy in the simple things
    *How one life can impact a whole community
    *. . . and more.

  • Racing To The Finish


    Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s only authorized book revealing the inside track on his final year of racing and retirement from the driver’s seat.

    Time was running out on my charade. . . . My secrets were about to be exposed to the world.

    When NASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. retired from professional stock car racing in 2017, he walked away as a healthy man. But for years he had worried that the worsening effects of multiple racing-related concussions would end not only his time on the track but also his ability to live a full and happy life.

    Torn between a race-at-all-costs culture and the fear that something was terribly wrong, Earnhardt started keeping private notes about his escalating symptoms. They showed a vicious cycle: suffering injuries on Sunday, struggling through the week, then recovering in time to race again. For the first time he shares these notes and fully reveals the physical and emotional struggles he faced as he fought to close out his career on this own terms.

    In this candid reflection Earnhardt opens up about his frustration with the slow recovery, his admiration for the woman who stood by him through it all, and his determination to share his own experience so others don’t have to suffer in silence. Steering his way to the final checkered flag of his storied career proved to be the most challenging race-and most rewarding finish-of his life.

  • Fearless : How An Underdog Becomes A Champion


    How does an underdog become a champion? One of the most innovative, gutsy, and dynamic head coaches in the NFL reveals the strategies behind building the Eagles team that shocked the world by winning the Super Bowl.

    Doug Pederson is the very definition of an underdog. He was an undrafted rookie free agent who would go on to play fourteen years in the NFL as a backup quarterback. He was cut five times, yet kept getting back up and into the fray. He would win one Super Bowl, with the Green Bay Packers. When he retired, he decided to coach, but not at the pro level. Instead, he was head coach of Calvary Baptist Academy in Shreveport, Louisiana. After a successful four-year stint there, he returned to the NFL as an assistant coach under Andy Reid with the Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs, where he was instrumental in the development of quarterback Alex Smith and his string of 3,000-plus-yard seasons of passing.

    When he was offered the job as head coach of the Eagles, he jumped at it, though few thought he would succeed. In the first season, a year of rebuilding, they finished 7-9. Some doubted his abilities, and before the 2017 season, one expert called Pederson the least qualified coach in thirty years. Plagued by the sidelining of seasoned players and devastated by quarterback Carson Wentz’s season-ending knee injury, the Eagles managed a 13-3 record and home-field advantage in the playoffs. Yet they were still the underdogs in every single game, including the Super Bowl, against the New England Patriots, one of the greatest dynasties in the history of the NFL. It wasn’t until they stunned the Patriots that people finally believed in Pederson and his team.

    In Fearless, Pederson reveals the principles that guided him through the ups and downs and tough times of his career, and what it took to become a champion. Through it all, Pederson sustained himself with his faith and the support of his family. He shares the defining stories of his life and career, growing up with his disciplinarian Air Force dad and his tender-hearted mom, developing friendships with Dan Marino and Brett Favre, and learning from mentors, such as Don Shula, Mike Holmgren, and Andy Reid, who helped mold him into the man and coach he is today.

    Fearless captures Pederson’s coaching and leadership philosophies and reveals the brilliant mind and indomitable spirit of a man who has entered the pantheon of great coaches.

  • Donuts Diamonds And Dreams


    Electric Moon Publishing

    It all began in the Sandlot. A magical time where all of us kids dreamed and played.

    We were free to play. We loved being with our friends. We learned how to share, encourage, dream, and enjoy each other. We learned how to negotiate, figure things out, use our imaginations, and cheer each other on.

    We figured out that we were all different and that was good. Kind of like diamonds, we each brought our own special talent.

    We played baseball, but that was just a piece of our time together. We learned that there are lots of fun things to do, and boy, did we love to try them all.

    Hold on to your dreams, grab a donut with your friends, and enjoy the ride while you can!
