When Jon Gruden asks his Tampa Bay Bucs, "Do you love football?!" it's to remind them why they pull on their shoulder pads every Sunday morning. It's not about the money or the fame; it's about their passion for what they do. And passion is something that has fueled Gruden's entire career. From his college playing days and his climb through the coaching ranks -- from college to assistant coaching jobs with the NFL's elite teams, to his first head coach job with the Oakland Raiders, and finally, with the Tampa Bay Bucs -- his meteoric rise is unparalleled. Underneath it all, though, he's just a humble, hardworking, no-nonsense guy who has no hobbies: "I'm not a scratch golfer. I don't know how to bowl. I can't read the stock market. Hell, I have a hard time remembering my wife's cell phone number. But I can call 'Flip Right Double X Jet 36 Counter Naked Waggle at 7 X Quarter' in my sleep." Now, in this motivational memoir, Gruden provides insight into what makes him tick. Do You Love Football?! is an intimate look at his life as a player, coach, and head coach, as well as the principles that have made him the hottest coach in the NFL.

Football is the greatest game in the world. Place can not be found in the world where it is not played. As Eusebio wisely said: ”Anyone can play whether you are poor or rich. All you need is space and a ball”. Football players and coaches are known from colorful language. Most of the quotes in this book are hilarious. Like Zlatan: "Now I'm here, I think the people in Paris will have something else to see besides the Mona Lisa” Many of the quotes are very inspiring as well. Messi gives us a good example: ”Talent and elegance mean nothing without rigor and precision” Let ́s enjoy players and coaches brightest moments.

Comeback Season

In Comeback Season, Cathy Day, author of the highly praised novel The Circus in Winter, tells the heartwarming story of how she got back in the game of love -- thanks to her favorite football team, the Indianapolis Colts. In 2005, Day, an Indiana native, moves to Pittsburgh to start her dream job. She's thirty-seven, a college professor, an acclaimed writer -- and still single. Psyching herself up, she thinks, "This is the year for the Colts and for me." Instead, both Day and quarterback Peyton Manning face heartbreaking end-of-season losses: the man in her life decides to punt, and the Colts fall to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the eventual Super Bowl champs. Her blue heart broken, Day vows that if the Colts can come back in 2006 and try again, so can she. Inspired by Manning's legendary perfectionism, Day spends the off-season "in training." She gets in shape, imagining that she's Rocky Balboa running through the Philadelphia streets to the tune of "Gonna Fly Now." She quits smoking. She reads dating primers. She watches Sex and the City. She takes notes. She asks everyone she knows, "Um, do you know any men my age who aren't married?" Come preseason, Day reluctantly joins an online dating service and goes on practice dates while the Colts play practice games. Indy goes 1-4 in the preseason, which is better than Day's record of 0-4. Lonely and dejected, Day returns home to watch Colts games with her family, who are full of well-intentioned relationship advice -- much of it bad. The 2006 season finally arrives. Each week that fall, the Colts battle a new adversary and Day faces her enemies: her own romanticism, indecisive men, and her biggest foe, the singles industry. Friends and family deliver impassioned pep talks but can only watch anxiously from the sidelines as Day marches bravely into bars and coffee shops to meet perfect strangers. On the way to the Super Bowl, she discovers that the key to winning -- in both love and football -- exists somewhere between Trying Everything and Letting Go. Honest, touching, and frequently hilarious, Comeback Season tells a timeless story about our need to feel connected to people and to places. This year-long chronicle of one woman's journey will resonate with anyone who's ever looked for love...fumbled...recovered! and kept charging down the field.

Winner of the Travcom/Whitcoulls Travel Book of the Year 2010Runner- up, Ashton Wylie Book Award 2010'This is a wonderful story of mid-life opportunity. Jane Carswell is a courageous woman and a spirited writer. Her book is a warm invitation to us all to risk a deeper kind of journey.' Michael McGirr, author The Lost Art of Sleep, Things You Get For Free, and Bypass.In mid-life Jane Carswell leaves her seemingly tranquil New Zealand life, her family and friends, to teach English in Chongqing, China. Her journey into the unknown epitomises the ache so many of us feel in our own lives for new challenges and personal understandings. Under the Huang Jiao Tree is a reflective, amusing and absorbing book about living and working in China, and the profound impact the experience has on the author's search for connection and community. Carswell writes beautifully and entertainingly of China, of its people and her surprises and setbacks, but where her memoir stands alone is in its description of her own search for a spiritual life and practice. On her return to her Western life she becomes drawn to the teachings of St Benedict, and all at once the reader realises where the purity of her writing springs from: a deep well of calm, silence and belief.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Born in England, Jane Carswell received all her schooling at St Margaret's College, in Christchurch where she now lives. Other homes were in Dunedin, Perugia (where she studied Italian) Waikari, Leeston and Chongqing (where she taught English). After piano lessons with Jessie Cook until she was 25, Jane began a lifelong career in teaching music. She has also worked with publishers, booksellers, lawyers, accountants, historians, real estate agents and artists. She is a Benedictine oblate, is married, and has a son and daughter, a 1912 straight-strung Bechstein piano, a split-cane fly rod, and small grandchildren who are teaching her ballet. She is a regular visitor to Australia.

It is an honor to have been asked to write an introduction to The Noblest, which is a collection of some of the work of a small group of people from different walks of life who came together in a writing workshop I gave at the John Noble Maritime Museum a few years ago. Together, we shared our writings, we listened to each other, and we grew into a family of friends. As you read their thoughts, their ideas, their stories, you will come to glimpse them as I have been privileged to do. Their poems, stories, and memoirs speak for themselves. They have opened their hearts and souls in their writings. Initially, I did not want to detract from their accomplishments with my own writings, but they are a persistent group and they prevailed. Tread softly as you read our works and enter into our lives. We hope our writing speaks to you and that you find a friend or two in these pages and that the words conjure memories, stimulate imagination, take you to special places, and give you pause to think. May I start you on your journey with a poem of my own. The letters leak from pens and pencils Like twisted linguine from aged grinders Into word salads that whisper feelings Sometimes buried, sometimes throbbing, Sometimes happy, sometimes sobbing. Pictures form of people Living quiet lives in troubled times Laughing, crying, sighing, Dreaming, loving, praying, Probing, wondering, remembering. They are the seasons of the years, The colors of the rainbow. Their images cling and clang, Stir and penetrate, invigorate and celebrate. They sing like the sunrise That while much may be taken Much abides and flourishes. Read our words and listen to our hearts With reverence, kindness, gratefulness and awe And learn once more we are not alone And all of us including you - still have much so much more to give. Thank you, George R. Hopkins

The Intentional Life Series

This set includes all three books of the Intentional Life Series: Soul Passion, Soul Mission, and Soul Vision. Throughout the Ages, humanity has pursued the "meaning of life." However, most of us live decidedly arbitrary lives, muddling through from day to day. In the Intentional Life Series, Dr. Ramesh Richard, who has been called the layman's Ravi Zacharias, articulates how a meaningful life must be a truly intentional life comprised of passion, mission, and vision. He believes that in order for us to embody our true selves and become what we were designed to be, we must reevaluate that passion, mission, and vision and conform them to God's will. In Soul Passion, Richard argues that even though many of us know there must be something more to life, we stumble about with undirected goals and undiscovered passion. He motivates readers to ask themselves what their passion is -- where they have placed their heart, love, trust, and sufficiency. Discovering your soul passion is the foundation for living a biblically well-built and profitable life. In Soul Mission, Richard explores what it means to have a mission for your life that is in response to God's universal purpose. Readers will find themselves deeply challenged to evaluate why they're here and find assistance with developing their own soul mission. In Soul Vision, Richard closes the trilogy by orienting his readers to the future, through guidance from the Divine Visionary.
