An inspiring memoir of courage, spirit, and determination Touching, funny, and honest, In a Single Bound is the story of how a feisty little girl from Long Island became one of the world’s most famous disabled sports figures. A world-class athlete and a celebrated television personality, Sarah Reinertsen not only takes us to the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii—she also provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at her season on CBS’s The Amazing Race 10, where millions saw her climb up the Great Wall of China, scale the cliffs of Vietnam, and ride horses in the hinterlands of Mongolia. But In a Single Bound is about more than sports and television. A gripping memoir of inner strength, it’s about a one-legged child trying to fit in with her two-legged friends. It’s about an adolescent girl mustering the inner strength to go stag to her senior prom. It’s about a woman who dared to fear less and live more.

Poetry. For those who love Superman and Wonder Woman--and who enjoy diving deep into the mythological history of superheroes, considering the ways that they both experience and reflect the best and worst our human condition--comes this double collection of poems, SINGLE BOUND. The first book in Bryan D. Dietrich's collection, Krypton Nights, won the prestigious Paris Review Prize in Poetry in 2001, and it receives a fresh treatment here. The second book, Amazon Days, makes its debut at a moment when women's identities and experiences are at the forefront of cultural conversation. These two superheroes, speaking within this combined collection of formal persona poems, have much to say to each other and to all of us. "Bryan Dietrich is my favorite mystic. I'd say theologian, but Dietrich's relationship to the divine is more medium than scholar. He invites it all in: the ancient and numinous, the postmodern and spandex clad. Then, like the ecstatic Theresa, the man-woman-man Tiresias, he speaks: earthy, oracular, earnest. Super. Wonder. Wow."--Marta Ferguson "The biggest struggles don't come in tights. This is the crux of Bryan Dietrich's SINGLE BOUND. Dietrich uses a masterful combination of forms and personas to offer a multifaceted and multidimensional examination of the two most important American superheroes. But, just like the best superhero stories aren't only about superheroes, this collection is not only about Superman and Wonder Woman. It is not only about Clark Kent and Diana Prince. Humanity sits at the core of SINGLE BOUND. In his depiction of these fictional saviors, Dietrich makes us question why humanity wants a savior and, most importantly, why humanity deserves to be saved."--Jason McCall

In the era of the knowledge economy, there are just two types of organizations... the quick and the dying In a world where the shelf-life of knowledge is approaching that of a banana, the path to organizational success has changed. In the Old West, they used to say that there were just two kinds of people - the quick and the dead. In the era of the knowledge economy the phrase might well be that there are just two types of organizations, the quick and the dying. The quick are embracing new ways of managing and leading while the dying are hanging on for dear life to the ways that brought them success in the past. This book is a leader's guide for the building of a high-performance culture In it you will discover: how to get your people working together for the good of the whole how to build a work environment that maximizes your people's desire to contribute how to enrich your people and your bottom line through the joy of work How people work together, how they interact, goes to the heart of what organizational culture is all about. Culture, a culture that facilitates the ongoing creation of new knowledge, a culture that gets people building and creating together, has become today's competitive advantage.
