What makes a coach great? How do great coaches turn a collection of individuals into a coherent “us”? Seth Davis, one of the keenest minds in sports journalism, has been thinking about that question for twenty-five years. It’s one of the things that drove him to write the definitive biography of college basketball’s greatest coach, John Wooden, Wooden: A Coach’s Life. But John Wooden coached a long time ago. The world has changed, and coaching has too, tremendously. Seth Davis decided to embark on a proper investigation to get to the root of the matter. In Getting to Us, Davis probes and prods the best of the best from the landscape of active coaches of football and basketball, college and pro—from Urban Meyer, Dabo Swinney, and Jim Harbaugh to Mike Krzyzewski, Tom Izzo, Jim Boeheim, Brad Stevens, Geno Auriemma, and Doc Rivers—to get at the fundamental ingredients of greatness in the coaching sphere. There’s no single right way, of course—part of the great value of this book is Davis’s distillation of what he has learned about different types of greatness in coaching, and what sort of leadership thrives in one kind of environment but not in others. Some coaches have thrived at the college level but not in the pros. Why? What’s the difference? Some coaches are stern taskmasters, others are warm and cuddly; some are brilliant strategists but less emotionally involved with their players, and with others it’s vice versa. In Getting to Us, we come to feel a deep connection with the most successful and iconic coaches in all of sports—big winners and big characters, whose stories offer much of enduring interest and value.

This insightful book provides a wealth of information to readers from multiple perspectives. It allows readers to gain powerful insight into our current population data in a way that gives them a better understanding about each demographic, how we can help each other overcome generational shortcomings, and how we can live in peaceful coexistence. The book not only adds practical and statistical data to make its points, but also adds proven facts, practical recommendations, instructions, and precautions that can be used to improve relationships among families and neighbors on multiple levels. Getting Back to Us educates the reader about the different demographics, providing characteristics and background on how and why populations in each group own the characteristics that they have. There are also some startling facts that surround each demographic, and truths that speak to the pros and cons of each of the primary generations today. Everyone engages with people from all generations, and this book will help you to understand and possibly relate to them better. T. D. Jenkins (the author) highlights many unintended benefits that have been lost to the younger generations and point out ways to resurrect those benefits back into how we raise, communicate, and engage our children and young adults and in how we rebuild our villages. This book is a must-read for adults with young children, grown children, or an extended family; for employers and HR specialists, and for elders in the community that have an ability to impact people to establish stronger communities. Getting Back to Us offers constructive, sound advice for new parents, current parents, and people in general--to restore the knowledge, self-confidence, adult-readiness, caring, sincerity, and self-esteem back into our young people. It's like have your favorite aunt in a bottle!

Getting the Message Through, the companion volume to Rebecca Robbins Raines' Signal Corps, traces the evolution of the corps from the appointment of the first signal officer on the eve of the Civil War, through its stages of growth and change, to its service in Operation DESERT SHIELD/DESERT STORM. Raines highlights not only the increasingly specialized nature of warfare and the rise of sophisticated communications technology, but also such diverse missions as weather reporting and military aviation. Information dominance in the form of superior communications is considered to be sine qua non to modern warfare. As Raines ably shows, the Signal Corps--once considered by some Army officers to be of little or no military value--and the communications it provides have become integral to all aspects of military operations on modern digitized battlefields. The volume is an invaluable reference source for anyone interested in the institutional history of the branch.

The two most powerful words in the world are, “I AM,” for anything we say after, I AM, we will believe and make come true, as we truly are whatever we say we are. If we say we are victors over this virus, we will prove it by conquering it with the faith and wisdom God gives us. Four other words that are as powerful as “I AM,” are, “I believe in you.” These four words have helped shepherd boys bring down giants and dreamers to shape history. What we believe about ourselves and each other is what is going to get us through this crisis. We have been commanded by God to speak to the mountain we want moved out of our way. This is a book that speaks to the warrior in every man, woman and child that is threatened by the Coronavirus or any other stealer of life. In times of trouble and darkness a standard must always be raised up to lead the people in battle. I perceive this book as being a beacon to guide us safely through this storm. No enemy prevails over the wall of our faith, for as he tries to scale its walls, we raise our faith to a higher level, forever determined to not let him supersede it. For every attack of the enemy we have a defense under the cover of God’s wing, which holds us as close to Him as He is to us. The right words at the right time can always spark a new hope and outlook for anyone who is being tried by adversity. This book may not stop this pandemic but I believe it can give us a reason to believe that it will be brought to an end soon enough. Just as we have gathered around the camp fire and fireplace in the past while the vigil candle burned in the window, we can gather around the words of this book to draw comfort and encouragement from people who know what it is to be tried by fire without being consumed. This is a small book but the inspiring quotes and mediations in it are big, they can do the soul good like a medicine if we take them with a little a faith in the strength they offer.
