Legendary University of North Carolina basketball coach Dean Smith tells the full story of his fabled career, and shares the life lessons taught and learned over forty years of unparalleled success as a coach and mentor. For almost forty years, Dean Smith coached the University of North Carolina men's basketball program with unsurpassed success- on the court and in shaping young men's lives. In his long-awaited memoir, he reflects on the great games, teams, players, strategies, and rivalries that defined his career, and explains the philosophy that guided him. There's a lot more to life than basketball- though some may beg to differ- but there's a lot more to basketball than basketball, and this is a book about basketball filled with wisdom about life. Dean Smith insisted that the fundamentals of good basketball were the fundamentals of character- passion, discipline, focus, selflessness, and responsibility- and he strove to unite his teams in pursuit of those values. To read this book is to understand why Dean Smith changed the lives of the players he coached, from Michael Jordan, who calls him his second father and who never played a single NBA game without wearing a pair of UNC basketball shorts under his uniform, to the last man on the bench of his least talented team. We all wish we had a coach like Dean Smith in our lives, and now we will have that chance.

Sports Arbitration: A Coach for Other Players? is not about sports arbitration. The reader may thus ask: Well, what is it about? Arbitration can take inspiration from other human activities, for instance sports. Does it follow that arbitration in general can take inspiration from sports arbitration? Can sports arbitration serve as an example, be it for better or worse? And if so, what are the limits of this? These questions are highly topical in today's world of arbitration. Faced with the increased duration and costs of arbitral proceedings, and with the perception that litigators instead of business people have taken over the process, more and more users are calling for a return to fast, inexpensive forms of dispute resolution that are conducted by persons of the trade. This has resulted in a series of initiatives to introduce trade-specific forms of dispute resolution based on fast-track arbitration proceedings in a wide range of business sectors.

O Desporto Escolar pretende ser um instrumento de promoção da saúde, de inclusão e promoção social, de combate ao insucesso e abandono escolar, razões que justificam uma forte aposta do Governo neste sub-sistema do desporto infanto-juvenil. Há mais de 50 anos que a oferta do Desporto Escolar está prevista no sistema educativo, tendo, a partir de 2008-2009, sido tornada obrigatória em todos os estabelecimentos do Ensino Básico e Ensino Secundário, mantendo-se a adesão voluntária dos praticantes. Esta aposta é suscetível de ser traduzida em números. Existem atualmente mais de 40 modalidades desportivas desenvolvidas na rede de escolas, variando de acordo com os recursos materiais e humanos disponíveis. A importância assumida pelo Desporto Escolar nos projetos educativos, na vida dos 700.000 jovens envolvidos na atividade interna e externa e na comunidade em que a participação desportiva ocorre resulta num substancial esforço de formação de árbitros, juízes, oficiais, treinadores, professores, dirigentes. A presente obra acrescenta valor à política da Direção-Geral de Inovação e Desenvolvimento Curricular, que tem como objetivo primordial a salvaguarda da qualidade da prática oferecida aos jovens em contexto escolar, combinando a opinião de peritos e estudos em aspetos tão importantes como os assuntos expressos no título do livro: “crescimento, maturação e talento”. Desejamos e esperamos que a parceria entre a DGIDC e a Universidade de Coimbra possa continuar a dar frutos.
