Gateway City: Covington, Kentucky, 1815-2015
Tenkotte, Claypool and Schroeder


This bicentennial history of Covington, Kentucky, presents an overview of an important gateway city. At times, this gateway has pointed in different directions, and, at other times, it has vacillated between innovation and complacency. Like other transitions or gateway regions, the residents of Covington have sought their fortunes with the prevailing winds of change. Initially, Covington served as a “Gateway to the West,” then as a “Gateway between the North and the South,” followed by a “Gateway to the North,” and most recently as a “Gateway to Progress.”

Gateway City studies the growth and development of a city within the context of national and regional events, particularly those affecting a border region. Lying on the southern shore of the Ohio River opposite Cincinnati, Ohio, Covington is part of a vibrant metropolitan region of 2.1 million people. With Cincinnati, it shares a common destiny as a transition area, a border region that has acted as a geological, climatological, historical, and cultural “gateway.”

In a 21st-century global economy, where cultures collide, connect and collaborate, the study of how historic border regions have functioned can inform modern decision-making. Border areas like Covington and Cincinnati have long struggled with—and turned to their advantage—the challenges and opportunities afforded by cultural, political, and economic differences. The resultant innovations have fueled their economic prosperity, as well as their cultural diversity.

With the exception of the US-Mexico border region, few transitional areas within the continental United States have been studied for their historical lessons. This book offers a glimpse of the historical themes underlying an interior border region, and one that was vitally important during the Civil War.

Lessons Learned

Lessons Learned



Pete Strange, CEO of Messer, worked with Charlie Mechem to product this wise, witty chronicle of Mechem's life. Pete also wrote the Preface, which includes: "There are definite points of transformation in the life of a company; just as there are in our personal lives. Such occurred when Charlie Mechem joined the Messer board.

Charlie's attitude matters most. His willingness to be "completely there" when he engages with us; and his ability to cut through the background noise and amplify the issue that matters most has changed how we plan and act as leaders. Wisdom is too small a word to describe the contributions Charlie has made to Messer. We are proud to spotlight the sort of thinking that informs our board conversations with this straightforward, delightful volume."

The harsh reality of business leadership is that we get 30% of what we demand from others; 60% of what we teach to others; but we can get 100% of what we model for others. Charlie Mechem meets the test; he is the very model of leadership." The book also features an Introduction by the late Neil Armstrong with his last published piece. One of the highlights of "Lessons Learned" are the key business insights collected as how to succeed in business, the Charlie Mechem way. Across six decades of leading companies and motivating individuals, Charlie Mechem has always led with his heart. From very humble beginnings, his earnest efforts endeared him to thousands, from line workers to Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and countless others in business, entertainment and sports. Charlie Mechem's interests and his background prepared him well for a broad career in law, business, pro sports, and as advisor to individuals and businesses. In this book, you will find many magical characters of Charlie Mechem's life...yours to enjoy and learn.

Cincinnati's Crosley Field: The Illustrated History of a Classic Ballpark
John Erardi and Joel Luckhaupt


    Crosley Field and another Rhodes-Erardi production, Big Red Dynasty, were honored among the top baseball books in the country by Spitball literary magazine and the Society for American Baseball Research. They also co-authored First Boys of Summer and Opening Day. Rhodes' other books are Redleg Journal, Reds in Black and White, and Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame Highlights. Erardi's other book, Pete Rose: 4,192, sole 50,000 copies.

     Cincinnati's Crosley Field presents the field's history through text and more than 150 photographs. The Cincinnati Reds played at Crosley Field from 1912 through 1970, and the ballpark holds an iconic place in the city's history as well as throughout Reds Country. One of the most beloved ballparks in Major League history, Crosley Field played host to the first night game and the first of Johnny Vander Meer's back-to-back no-hitters, as well as four World Series and two All-Star games.

    From the outfield terrace to the "Moon Deck," from Lombardi's "snooze" to Big Klu's biceps, Blackwell's "whip" to Rose's belly-flop slides, the Redlegs to the Big Red Machine, Cincinnati's Crosley Field has them covered in words and pictures. Greg Rhodes and John Erardi also present the great Negro Leagues teams that played at Crosley, as well as the field's many colorful characters, such as longtime announcer Waite Hoyt and the top-hatted vendor known as Peanut Jim. In April 2009, the Reds' Hall of Fame and Museum opens this season's key exhibit, Crosley Field Remembered, and Cincinnati's Crosley Field will be sold at the team's gift shop as a souvenir.

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.

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.

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.
