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.

Sid Gillman

Sid Gillman
Josh Katzowitz


Father of the Passing Game

Sid Gillman, unlike so many of his coaching colleagues, never wrote a book about himself. He never published his own ideas about the game and why he thought passing the ball in an age where most quarterbacks handed off to running backs was the key to his success. In more than four decades of coaching, nobody thought it necessary to tell the definitive Sid Gillman story. Until now. 

Gillman was a true innovator. The kind of football genius that goes overlooked by today’s average fan, but who will never be forgotten by the coaches he directly – and indirectly – impacted. The modern-day offenses that emphasize spreading the field with receivers, running backs and tight ends? That was Gillman’s idea. The idea that the long pass could stretch a defense? That was Gillman’s baby as well. What NFL fans watch today in ever-increasing numbers (and the high-flying offenses those fans love) can be directly traced back to the Midwestern coach who was a forerunner to the West Coast offense.

Gillman wasn’t a perfect man. He had plenty of warts, and he made plenty of enemies. But he also made a major impact on the game, comparable to how Vince Lombardi, Paul Brown and Woody Hayes left a timeless impression. Josh Katzowitz tells you how Gillman was just as important as any coach who came before him or afterward. 

This is not simply a biography of an innovator. It details exactly how and why the NFL football you watch today is the image of what Gillman believed was possible. It’s why football luminaries like Al Davis, Bill Walsh and Chuck Noll cite Gillman as one of the most important influences on their careers and lives. It’s why if you watched the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, you could see the scope of Gillman’s reach. In order to truly understand the reason why football offenses are so exciting today, learning about Gillman is absolutely essential. Katzowitz takes you on that journey.

Playing Ball with the Boys

Playing Ball with the Boys
Betsy Ross


The use of female sideline reporters is the fastest-growing new aspect of televised broadcasts of professional and college football. Names like Suzy Kolber, Erin Andrews, and Andrea Kremer are now as well known as any of the men in the booth. In recent years women have been sports columnists and reporters, talk-show hosts, even coaches and team administrators. And yet there has never been a book about this phenomenon.

Former ESPN news anchor Betsy Ross fills this void with Playing Ball with the Boys, a fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at the emerging role that women play in sports broadcasting and reporting as well as in the business of sports. Ross interviews a number of the biggest names—from Kolber and Kremer to USA Today columnist Christine Brennan and Lesley Visser and many others—who offer first-hand accounts of the struggles and the triumphs of women playing what has always been a man’s game.

She provides a history of this unique facet of the sports world, from pioneering female newspaper sports reporters to the celebrated breakthrough into televised sports by former Miss America Phyllis George, who is interviewed in the book. Ross covers the controversial moments, from locker room confrontations between players and female reporters to the infamous sideline interview in which Joe Namath attempted to kiss Suzy Kolber during a live broadcast.
Readers also learn of women who played pro sports on male teams or coached men’s teams. They meet a woman who runs a professional baseball team and another who is a team doctor.

Through this tale, Ross weaves her own story, recalling how she went from a small town in Indiana to the anchor’s chair at the largest sports network in the world, ESPN. She explains what it’s like for a woman to succeed in the male-dominated world of sports broadcasting.

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.
