Through his story recounted here—from scouting combines to preseason cuts to byzantine film studies to glorious touchdown catches—even knowledgeable football fans will glean a new, starkly humanized understanding of the NFL's workweek. Fast-paced, lyrical, dirty, and hilariously unvarnished, Slow Getting Up is an unforgettable look at the real lives of America's best athletes putting their bodies and minds through hell.

Our eyes are involved in most of our experiences and in forming our memories. It seems logical that we can use our eyes to change hurtful memories. Emotional Transformation Therapy (ETT) was developed with this concept in mind. Emotions play an extraordinary role in our lives. Every event is labeled with a corresponding emotion in our brains. An experience can be characterized as pleasant or dangerous—or by any other identifier that influences our thoughts and actions or determines whether we want to remember a particular occurrence. Events do not change if the emotional labels are altered, but we think and react differently to different labels. People can go from feeling victimized to becoming proud survivors if the labels are changed. A crisis situation can become either a tragedy or a new beginning based on a person’s emotional evaluation. ETT does not change facts, but it can help transform shame, fear, loneliness, emptiness, and other often paralyzing feelings, opening up a person to the possibility of more realistic and empowering mind-sets. ETT offers quick, goal-oriented treatment for severe psychological problems like PTSD, abuse, and eating disorders and everyday situations such as stress in one’s professional life, anxiety that hinders achievement, and more. Learn more about this revolutionary new treatment method designed by a licensed clinical psychologist, and unlock the secret to fast, effective recovery.

For two veteran police officers and their small group of friends, the first day of the outbreak starts out like any other until they are confronted with a new and unexpected enemy. Each one of them is forced to confront the unthinkable. Zombies are real, and craving the living with an insatiable appetite. Against the full specter of a society crumbling around them, and the dead stalking the living in the streets, it will take all of their skill, knowledge and courage to survive. Yet, amongst it all, they still face enemies among the living as well. Armed gangs free to roam the streets. Powerful men who want to play politics with people’s lives, and wolves in sheep’s clothing. Together, the group faces an uncertain future as they struggle against relentless enemies, living and dead, in a devastated America. Matvei, the Russian mercenary, had been poised to carve out his own empire from the ashes of humanity. Horribly underestimating the enemy he now faced, the once leader of an army struggles to survive against the very creatures he helped create. For Mike and Stephen, the idea to use an abandoned prison as a modern day fortress was brilliant. Solid stone walls protected them and their growing group of survivors against the relentless advance of the undead howling for their blood, giving the people inside a sense of hope in these dark days. Utilizing the skills and knowledge of the people sheltered inside, they had turned the old prison into a working community. They had shelter, food, and weapons to combat the dead. What could go wrong? In a nearby conclave was Father Kettle. He was a man used to his position of authority as a man of God to get anything he desired. Now, along with a congregation of ruthless murderers, he desires everything the survivors hold dear. Father Kettle’s personal assassin, Jonas, had infiltrated the prison to undermine their cause. Joining their conspiracy, burning with the need for revenge is former Councilman Lewis. All the while, far to the north in the burning remnants of Chicago, the countless eyes of an undead host, filled with hunger and rage, looked to the south…
