An extreme-sports champion shares his inspirational journey—from a traumatic near-death experience to the pinnacle of excellence. In 1992, Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld survived a plane crash that claimed the lives of sixteen people, including several members of his skydiving team. After six weeks in a coma, he woke up with a broken neck, a shattered skull, severe head trauma, a collapsed lung, and other serious internal injuries. Against all odds, Dan recovered—and went on to become one of the greatest competitive skydivers in the world, better known to his fans as “Dan BC.” With the love and support of friends and family, Dan was able to not only resurrect his life, but also return to the sport he loved and achieve greater heights than he ever could have imagined. In Above All Else, he uses his experiences to teach the lessons he’s learned—as a competitor, coach, business owner, father, and husband—to help others achieve their dreams, overcome obstacles, and reach their peak performance. His proven formula for success is applicable to all people, no matter their goals—in the boardroom, on the playing field, wherever people compete to win.

Even amongst the most elite performers, certain athletes stand out as a cut above the rest, able to outperform in clutch, game-deciding moments. These athletes prove that raw athletic ability doesn't necessarily translate to a superior on-field experience—it's the mental game that matters most.

While the caliber of their game may differ, athletes at every level have one thing in common: they want to excel. In The Champion's Mind, sports psychologist Jim Afremow, PhD, LPC, now offers the same advice he uses with Olympians, Heisman Trophy winners, and professional athletes, including: Tips and techniques based on high-performance psychology research, such as how to get in a "zone," thrive on a team, and stay humble How to progress within a sport and sustain excellence long-term Customizable pre-performance routines to hit full power when the gun goes off or the puck is dropped The Champion's Mind distills actionable advice into clear and concise steps for athletes looking to find confidence, concentration, and mental preparedness—the mental edge that sets champions apart.

Sellers often don't close all of the sales they deserve to close. Why? The sales model itself fails to address the off-line issues buyers must manage before making a buying decision. Dirty Little Secrets takes the reader behind the scenes to understand how buyers buy, and offers tools to help them. Dirty Little Secrets exposes the problems with sales that have resulted in over 90% failure rates, and offers front-end decision facilitation tools to mitigate the failures.Until now, sales books have focused on helping buyers through the solution-placement end of the buying decision. No other book takes the seller through the behind-the-scenes issues that buyers must address before they get buy-in for a solution.This is not a sales book, but a sophisticated examination of systems, change, and decision making to help sellers close more, find more prospects, and greatly minimize the sales cycle. This book is essential for any serious student of sales.Do you want to sell? Or have someone buy?

Are today’s boxers better than their predecessors, or is modern boxing a shadow of its former self? Boxing historians discuss the socioeconomic and demographic changes that have affected the quality, prominence and popularity of the sport over the past century. Among the interviewees are world-renowned scholars, some of the sport’s premier trainers, and former amateur and professional world champions. Chapters cover such topics as the ongoing deterioration of boxers’ skills, their endurance, the decline in the number of fights and the psychological readiness of championship-caliber boxers.

The plants were pushing the houses back, each millimetre of growth adding to each tendril a new triumph of organic force. 'We're just starting summer rains, right?' Babalwa asked rhetorically. 'It's October, right? And it rains hard up here?' We were driving through the matchbox houses of Katlehong. 'Very.' 'What you reckon - two years? Three? Before everything is gone?' Dub Steps has a strange long aftertaste. It is science fiction with ordinary characters trying to understand what it is to be alive. People have gone, suddenly, inexplicably, and the remaining handful have to find each other and start again. Nature comes back, Johannesburg becomes wonderfully overgrown, designer pigs watch from the periphery walls, and the small group of survivors have to find ways of living with their own flaws and the flaws of each other. There are no clichés in this book, but there is plenty of humor, originality and a gripping, unusual interrogation of the ordinary but really extraordinary fact of being alive.

If you are contemplating working with a champion, a potential champion, or anyone with untapped talent - be prepared, be very prepared. In 1998 Sir Steve Redgrave stared at Ingham and demanded to know, "Are you going to make me go faster?" Ingham had been trained and developed as a scientist, but in that single instance he questioned everything he thought he knew. Applied science in elite sport has boomed. Science has radically changed elite sport, but one thing remains as the guiding focus - the summit of performing to your best and winning. This applies to the athlete, the coaches and increasingly for the applied practitioner. In this book Ingham draws on the lessons learned from a career in the intense, unforgiving rollercoaster of elite sport; helping, supporting and developing some of the best athletes in the world, including Sir Steve Redgrave, Sir Matthew Pinsent, Hayley Tullett, Kelly Sotherton, and Jessica Ennis-Hill as they pursue their goals. His journey shows that all the knowledge in the world will get you only so far, but it is with trust, team-work, critical thinking, adaptability, accountability and altruism that you can truly support a champion.
