I read that book too Brian! There are many great chapters in there about many of the interviews Jane (who did One on One with Jane on San Diego's Channel 4 in San Diego) did with various sport stars over the years. I was impressed with the many wonderful things all these players had to say - I feel like I know them personally after reading about them in this book!

I just finished reading Jane Mitchell's "One on One: My Journey with Hall of Famers, Fan Favorites and Rising Stars."
First off, for a woman to break down barriers of getting up close and personal with MLB and NFL players is astonishing. Jane's story in itself is quite inspiring and the interviews of sport legends is priceless. I personally have not seen or read anything like it. If you're a sports fan and appreciate an inside look at athletes, like my favorites--Ted Williams, Tony Gwynn, Drew Bress, and LaDainian Tomlinson, just to name a few ... you'll love this book! This book is inspiration and makes a great gift for sports fans and non-sports fans alike. It will leave you inspired, and it proves nothing is impossible if you set your mind to accomplishing what you want.

S. Hughes says:
A personal story of two-time Olympic and Pan American Games athlete called the "finest water polo player in U.S. history." "Bob Hughes, The True Story of a Legendary Waterman" tells how dedication, hard work and a love for the sport of water polo took the Cinderella team of young players barely out of high school to the 1952 Helsinki, Finland Olympics to a fourth place finish, and goes on to chronicle a decade of competition for Hughes including an international love affair and Cold War espionage that lead to the dissappointing end to a phenomenal swimming career in the 1956 Melbourne, Australia Olympic Games. A Biography written by Hughes' wife with personal stories, news clips and photos that will take you back in history. Buy at www.artfuldaggerpublishing.com or Amazon.

If you want to improve your golf game, try my book, "How Short Hitting, Bad Golfers Break 90 All the Time". It answers the question, "What specific steps should I take to get better at golf?

First of all, learn to "think" on the golf course, not about hitting the ball, about how to play the game.

You don't have to hit the ball farther. You don't have to hit more greens in regulation. What you have to do is learn to 2 putt every green. That's right, the first step is stop 3 putting.

Play for bogey, not for birdie. You don't have to be on greens in regulation. You just have to get somewhere within 20 to 40 yards of the green, and be able to put that short chip or pitch shot on the green somewhere.

Don't cut doglegs, play risky long shots over ponds, or try to put the ball between 2 trees 18" apart, when you've just missed a fairway 50 yards across.

Stop being stupid and throwing away shots. My book tells you how, for the cost of about 1 golf ball.

Parting the Clouds - The Science of the Martial Arts has just been published. Good for those interested in the physics behind fighting techniques.

Check out former Major League All Star Gregg Olson's new book: We Got to Play Baseball

We Got to Play Baseball is a remarkable collection of favorite memories from 60 Hall of Famers, All Stars, veteran ballplayers, managers, coaches, umpires and others directly involved in Major League Baseball. Their stories range from the 1950s to current day. "As a teammate, Gregg was a terrific story teller and always fun to be around. Baseball is filled with wonderful stories and Otter has done a great job of pulling them together into one place. He asked his many friends in the game to contribute their story and the result is a fun, enjoyable book that provides us with insights into the world of the big leaguers that aren't often shared." - Cal Ripken, Jr., Hall of Famer "With this collection of stories, Gregg has brought back a lot of fantastic memories and reminded me how much fun a major league clubhouse can be." - Jim Abbott, Major League pitching star There is nothing like a good baseball story - and nothing like hearing a good baseball story from an actual player who was there. Gregg Olson knew even in his playing days that the clubhouse culture was unique, and he has given fans a true inside look with "We Got to Play Baseball," gathering his own stories and the stories of many others. Fans will love reading about players' pranks, travel high jinks and much more." - Ken Rosenthal, FOX Sports About the Authors: The 1989 American League Rookie of the Year,All-Star closer Gregg Olson pitched in the Major Leagues and is now a scout for the San Diego Padres. Ocean Palmer teaches corporate leadership and played amateur ball. They are working on the sequel.

I just recentley read Big Mama's Awesome Rocker which was very interesting. It was about her experiance with divine intervention and football. Considering all of the hoopla with Tebow the release of the book was good timing. Big Mama's Awesome Rocker: Super Bowl XLIII: Good Game Plan Or Divine Intervention (You be the Judge)
