Chuck Pagano, head coach of the Indianapolis Colts, has become one of the most inspiring, intriguing personalities in the game of football. Only three games into his rookie season in 2012, Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia, sidelined by the side effects chemotherapy and months of recovery. Undeterred, Pagano didn’t let the confines of his hospital bed keep him from coaching: texts, calls, and emails kept him in constant contact with players, staff, and assistants. Motivated to be just as strong and determined as their ailing coach the team started winning game after game, compiling an impressive 11-5 record. The players weren’t the only ones touched by Pagano’s hope and strength of character. Inspired by the tenacity and toughness of their beloved coach, a newcomer to town, thousands of fans united to form Chuckstrong, a movement that soon raised millions to help beat cancer. Pagano, fueled by his faith, his family, and his love of football, returned to lead the Colts to another winning season and the divisional playoffs in 2013. With Pagano’s practical lessons on living, loving, and leading, Sidelined, which includes an 8-page color photo section, inspires us all to stay in the game and never accept defeat.

There is a way to confront problems in life, shake them off, and move on. Based on the story (see Acts 27-28) of the Apostle Paul's near catastrophic shipwreck, this is a call to individuals to "shake off" problems and disasters in life and move forward to new health and wholeness. To everyone on the ship with the Apostle Paul, it looked like a certain disaster. But as Paul predicted, everyone did survive--even though they made it to safety only by grasping "broken pieces of wood." In his unique way, Rodriguez compellingly explains that "God makes wonderful things in our life come from our broken pieces. Because of Christ in our life, we have the power to shake off fear, rejection, and failure--just like Paul later shook off the viper that should have killed him."

In The Winning Mindset, Professor Damian Hughes, the acclaimed author of Liquid Thinking and How to Think Like Sir Alex Ferguson, draws on both his lifetime experience and academic background within sport, organization and change psychology to reveal the best ways to create a winning mindset in both personal and professional life. Having worked with some of the top teams in the UK, and watched some of the best coaches in the country at work, Hughes distils the five keys principles that separate the best coaches and teams from the rest: Simplicity; Tripwires; Emotions; Practical; Stories: STEPS. The role of a sports-team leader is fascinating, complex and tough. Fantasy football leagues may convince us that success is all about buying players and selecting a team. In reality, it is about creating winning environments - recruiting, developing and nurturing talent, effectively communicating a shared vision with a diverse collection of individuals, delivering on enormous expectations from a range of stakeholders, overcoming significant challenges, handling pressure and staying focused throughout: a set of challenges familiar to leaders in all sectors.

Foreword by Kyle Whittingham! Eric Weddle has developed a reputation as one of the NFL's best defensive minds, a fundamentally sound tackling machine, and a reliable last line of defense in the secondary for the San Diego Chargers. Prior to the 2011 season, the Chargers made Eric one of the highest paid safeties in league history by signing him to a five-year, $40 million contract. “Honestly, who would have ever thought I would be at where I am today?” Eric said. “I was a kid who loved sports, who struggled, who was benched, who was injured, but I didn't let the little things get me down. The little things don't affect who I am or what I'm about, but they drive me to do better. To get better today, you must demand more than you did yesterday. Winners pay the price to reach their goals.” Weddle's story is about overcoming adversity and accomplishing impossible dreams. It's about an athlete who surprised his family and friends by joining the Mormon church, and about how his faith has continued to bless his life. It's a story about epic wins and devastating losses, confidence and character. It's a story of a man who values his family above all else. In short, it's a story about living each day with no excuses and no regrets. “Eric's story demonstrates that you don't have to be the biggest, the strongest or fastest to defy odds and achieve your goals.” Adam Schefter, NFL Insider for ESPN “It's nice to read the stories of top draft picks that were supposed to be good. It's better to read about guys like Eric Weddle who through hard work and passion grew to dominate his position in the league.” – Darren Rovell, ESPN sports business reporter “If you are as impressed as I am by Eric Weddle 'the player and leader', you will be even more so by the view of Eric Weddle 'the person and father' that you gain from No Excuses, No Regrets.” – Alex Marvez, Senior NFL Writer, FOXSports.com “Eric Weddle has been a pillar of the NFL community, exemplary on the field and off. His story is one of dedication and perseverance and he rose to become one of the dominant safeties in the game, silencing detractors and becoming one the cornerstones of the Chargers organization. Football fans everywhere will enjoy his tale.” – Jason La Canfora, NFL Insider for CBS
