A Philadelphia Story
Lori Litchman


Founders and Famous Families from the City of Brotherly Love

Founders and Famous Families: Philadelphia is an in-depth look at how significant founders, families, and firsts made Philadelphia not only the birthplace of our country, but also truly a city of firsts. Through their efforts they stamped their mark on Philadelphia with parks, streets, and landmarks bearing their names.

Lori Litchman's Founders and Famous Families: Philadelphia brings to life the founding families’ histories, a history of lives lived large -- truly the Who’s Who (as well as the When and Where) of Philadelphia -- that when considered together, made the City of Brotherly Love the great metropolis it is today.

As a quick peek into the rich tapestry of local lore, Founders and Famous Families of Philadelphia focuses first on William Penn's creation of a city leading to the birth of our nation. Philadelphia as the first capital of the United States, the declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War and Benjamin Franklin. The arrival of the Quakers to Philadelphia and religious freedom is explored, as is the Abolition Movement and and Underground Railroad in Philadelphia. In her chapter "Health Firsts" the author reveals that Philadelphia is home to the first hospital, medical school, mental health hospital, eye hospital, children's hospital and the first medical school for women. William Penn called Philadelphia a "green country town" and so it is no surprise that the first Women's horticulture school was founded by Philadelphian Jane B. Haines. Teen idols Frankie Avalon and Bobby Rydell hailed from Pennsylvania and so is sports legend Wilt Chamberlain, one of the greatest and most dominant players in NBA history.

From the first hospital to the first paper mill, Philadelphia was the keystone to our developing nation in its formative years. Philadelphia is also home of America's first zoo, the oldest art museum and art school in the country and the first African American Church in the United States. Philadelphia literally means “City of Brotherly Love,” and much of the city’s growth is connected to the idea of unity.

Philadelphia’s familial history is topped off by noting the invention of the modern-day beehive by Lorenzo Langstroth and the ongoing debate about the inventor of the Philadelphia cheesesteak. GQ recognized Philadelphia as one of the "5 Best Beer Cities in America" which comes to no surprise as the city once was considered the greatest brewing city in the Western Hemisphere, the “Cradle of American Libation” - if you will.

Read, revel and enjoy.

Summer of Shadows
See details
Summer of Shadows
Jonathan Knight


Summer of Shadows is an intertwining narrative that tells the story of the 1954 Cleveland Indians (which would etch itself in history as one of the greatest baseball teams in MLB history) and the infamous murder of the wife of Dr. Sam Sheppard in their home along the shore of Lake Erie—which held both the city and the nation spellbound that summer. Both of these generation-defining stories take place in the final days of the “Best Location in the Nation,” the nickname for the Cleveland of the 1950s, which truly was one of the great and most influential cities in America.

The Sheppard case would influence the television series The Fugitive a decade later and give Cleveland’s reputation a black eye following the shoddy and unethical behavior of the city’s police department and news media, which led to the conviction of an innocent man. Meanwhile, the 1954 Indians would post the greatest season in American League history and dethrone the five-time-champion New York Yankees in a dramatic pennant race, culminating in a September doubleheader before 86,000 fans at Cleveland Stadium. The powerful Indians would then be swept by Willie Mays and the New York Giants in the World Series. These two parallel tragedies harbinger an onslaught of adversity that dragged Cleveland from its lofty standing as a leading American city to one with a bleak—even comic—reputation.

Summer of Shadows
is essentially a postcard from that gilded age, when the city enjoyed its own golden October, not knowing that decades of dismal, bitter winter lay ahead.

Founders and Famous Families of Cincinnati

Founders and Famous Families of Cincinnati
Wendy Hart Beckman


When gazing at the city’s impressive skyline, we too often forget the notable individuals who built these grand and glittering buildings, as well as the nearby museums, parks and neighborhoods we also treasure. Reflected in the character, reputation and even design of our city, the legacy of the early settlers continues on today. Through their efforts, almost always imbued with a civic entrepreneurial spirit, they stamped their mark on our burgeoning regional reputation, while also allowing current leaders to bolster and broaden our national reputation.

Founders and Famous Families of Cincinnati brings to life the founding families’ histories, sharing these intertwined and fascinating tales with readers near and far. A charming history of lives lived large -- truly the Who’s Who (as well as the When and Where) of Cincinnati -- that when considered together, made the Queen City the great place to live and work that it is today.

From its very beginnings, Cincinnati offered an enticing combination of personable welcome and worldly sophistication. At one point, Cincinnati had more native-born residents than any other American city, a testament to the values that attracted and retained its citizens.

As a quick peek into the rich tapestry of local lore, Founders and Famous Families of Cincinnati focuses first on John Cleves Symmes, who founded the soon-to-be-mighty city along the banks of the Ohio River, In time, Symmes’ daughter would marry William Henry Harrison, who later became president of the United States. Their grandson, Benjamin also occupied the Oval Office. Nicholas Roosevelt, another adventurous spirit, developed with Robert Fulton the first steamboat to successfully make the journey all the way down the Ohio River. Nicholas’ uncle was President Theodore Roosevelt’s grandfather. Teddy Roosevelt’s daughter, Alice, married Nicholas Longworth IV, great-grandson of another Nicholas Longworth who had been at one time the wealthiest man in America. Longworth IV’s Cincinnati vineyards and Catawba wine prompted Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to pen a poem dedicated to its honor, calling Cincinnati the “Queen of the West” (but he was not the first to do so). Nicholas Longworth’s granddaughter, Maria, became the first woman to own and operate a major manufacturing business, Rookwood Pottery, a cherished Cincinnati artistic operation that continues on today.

Cincinnati’s familial history is topped off by noting the innovations that have impacted the rest of the world, including these landmark achievements: the first professional baseball team, the first pharmacy college, the first Jewish hospital, the first municipal university, the first concrete skyscraper, the first municipal railroad, and so many more. Read, revel and enjoy.

The Comeback Kids

The Comeback Kids
Mark J. Schmetzer and Joe Jacobs


Few experts picked the Reds to win the National League Central Division Championship. Loaded with great young talent, the team was expected to move up in the standings and maybe even to break its nine-year streak of losing seasons. But win the division? Hardly.

No one realized the level of heart and tenacity this team possessed, the pluck and verve this team could summon in the face of adversity. The Reds came from behind to win 45 games, and whenever they took a tough loss, they bounced back the next game. They truly were “The Comeback Kids.” As baseball fans throughout the country waited for them slide back to expectations, they just kept hustling—and winning.

The Reds led the league in many offensive categories, with a lineup anchored by budding superstar Joey Votto and aging veteran Scott Rolen. Though the pitching staff lacked a true ace, many pitchers contributed quality games. The bullpen did the same, until September, when heralded phenom Aroldis Chapman came up from the minor leagues and threw 100 mph fastballs, taking the staff to a whole new level.

The Comeback Kids tells the remarkable story of the 2010 Reds, a team that relied on every player to achieve a stunning division championship. Featuring nearly 100 photos, this full-color book is the ultimate keepsake for every Reds fan, helping them remember a season, and a team, they never want to forget.

Barrel Strength Bourbon: The Explosive Growth of America's Whiskey
Carla Harris Carlton


In an approachable, conversational style, Barrel Strength Bourbon provides an in-depth examination of the bourbon industry in Kentucky, the creation of an American spirit, its resurrection following Prohibition, its astronomical growth in the past five years, and its potential for the future.

Along the way, readers will meet the colorful family of characters who craft bourbon by hand, visit the picturesque distilleries along rural backroads and urban centers, and learn the secrets of an American original.

The author, Carla Harris Carlton, gives readers an up-close look at how bourbon is made, how the industry was built, and how the close-knit families of bourbon crafters continue to grow a multibillion-dollar global industry while staying true to their Kentucky roots.

Readers will learn how to nose, taste, and appreciate a spirit that, while created from time-tested recipes, is evolving so quickly that new varieties and brands appear weekly on liquor store shelves.

The author, a leading bourbon journalist who routinely helps select barrels for special edition bottlings and tastes new products before most bartenders do, takes readers on a behind-the-scenes tour of distilleries and rickhouses, shares anecdotes from her chats with bourbon legends, and provides insight on what to expect next from one of the fastest growing spirits on Earth.

Innovation Engineering defines innovation in two words: Meaningfully Unique. When a product, service, or job candidate is Meaningfully Unique customers are willing to pay more money for it. This links to the two simple truths in today’s marketplace:

Research finds that it helps to increase innovation speed (up to 6x) and decrease risk (by 30 to 80%).

The B2B Executive Playbook
Sean Geehan


The Ultimate Weapon for Achieving Sustainable, Predictable & Profitable Growth

In the B2B world, the company's fate lies in the hands of a few individuals. What ultimately determines if the company thrives, or even survives, is how these key relationships are targeted, structured, and managed.

This is the first book exclusively focused on successfully running business-to-business companies and written specifically for CEOs and their senior management team, including CFO, CMO, CSO, CIO, Product Development, and presidents of business units. The B2B world is very different from B2C. Yet all too often, well-meaning executives apply B2C strategies to their B2B organizations, which leads to disappointing, even disastrous results. The B2B landscape is littered with failed initiatives. More than 30% of all product development, marketing, and other discretionary dollars are wasted.

There are endless activities your company can engage in, all aimed at improving your business. But it’s imperative that you don’t get activities confused with results. Also, if the budget and plans aren’t structured for B2B specifically, they won’t move the meter.
