10 Truths About Leadership
Pete Luongo, foreword Curt W. Coffman


    Many leaders remember that life-changing moment when, almost suddenly, it became crystal clear what must be done to reach their organization's goal. It wasn't until the author was faced with that one epiphany in his life, a difficult period that required him to rebalance life's priorities and bring a new understanding to his work, that he recognized that all results are based upon behaviors appropriate to the circumstances. By understanding that all of our actions are determined by specific, well-defined standards, a model for success was developed.

    Key to the longevity of the results, this model is sustainable and allows people to retain their personal dignity as they pursue their life's plan. These truths are simple. Acknowledging and abiding by them takes some work. Trust yourself. By illuminating the ten most common obstacles to success, paired with the truths that show the reader how to overcame them, Pete's simple and straightforward advice, based on data and hard-won experience, provides an understandable and virtually guaranteed plan for improvement and achievement.

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.

Ball Cap Nation: A Journey Through the World of America's National Hat
Jim Lilliefors


    As the country grows increasingly diverse and complicated, Americans seek, and occasionally find, a common thread to unite them. And, as Jim Lilliefors reveals in his new book, that common thread is what the baseball cap is made of — indeed, what has transformed it into America’s National Hat. As fads go, it’s no longer even a fad, but a part of the national identity that, for better or worse, is a symbol of America.

    It feeds an illusion that Americans cherish — that despite their differences, and no matter what position they play — when wearing a baseball cap, they’re all part of the same team. Exploring every aspect of caps and their culture — including the history, manufacturing, and evolution of baseball caps; collecting and caring for caps; cap etiquette; and even cap urban legends — and packed with photos throughout, Ball Cap Nation is a delightful look at a uniquely American phenomenon.

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.

Before the Machine: The Story of the 1961 Pennant-Winning Reds
Mark J. Schmetzer


The Big Red Machine dominated major league baseball in the 1970s, but the Cincinnati franchise began its climb to that pinnacle in 1961, when an unlikely collection of cast-offs and wannabes stunned the baseball world by winning the National League pennant. Led by revered manager Fred Hutchinson, the team featured rising stars like Frank Robinson, Jim O’Toole, and Vada Pinson, fading stars like Gus Bell and Wally Post, and a few castoffs who suddenly came into their own, like Gene Freese and 20-game-winner Joey Jay.

In time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their pennant-winning season, the amazing story of the “Ragamuffin Reds” is told from start to finish in Before the Machine. Written by long-time Reds Report editor Mark J. Schmetzer and featuring dozens of photos by award-winning photographer Jerry Klumpe of the Cincinnati Post & Times Star, this book surely will be a winner with every fan in Reds country and coincides with an anniversary exhibit at the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum.

Through interviews and research, Before the Machine captures the excitement of a pennant race for a team that had suffered losing seasons in 14 of the past 16 years. Schmetzer also beautifully evokes the time and place—a muggy Midwestern summer during which, as the new song of the season boasts, “the whole town’s batty for that team in Cincinnati.” Led by regional talk-show star Ruth Lyons (the Midwest’s “Oprah”) fans rallied around the Reds as never before.

The year didn’t begin well for the team. Budding superstar Frank Robinson was arrested right before spring training for carrying a concealed weapon, and long-time owner Powel Crosley Jr., died suddenly just days before the start of the season. Few experts—or fans—gave the Reds much of a chance at first place anyway. With powerhouse teams in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Milwaukee, the National League pennant was unlikely to fly over Cincinnati’s Crosley Field.

But manager Hutchinson somehow galvanized his motley crew and led them to victory after victory. Joey Jay, who had languished with the Braves, mowed down hitters while his rotation mates O’Toole and knuckleballer Bob Purkey did the same. The team also featured a dynamic duo in the bullpen in Bill Henry and Jim Brosnan, whose book about the season, Pennant Race, became a national bestseller the following year. As the rest of the league kept waiting for the Reds to fade, Hutch’s boys kept winning—and finally grabbed the pennant.

Though they couldn’t continue their magic in the World Series against the Yankees, the previously moribund Reds franchise did continue to their success throughout the decade, winning 98 games in 1962 and falling just short of another pennant in 1964. They established a recipe for success that would lead, a few years later, to the emergence of the Big Red Machine.

Black and Blue (paperback)
Bob Berghaus


    Formed in 1967, the NFL's Central Division, made up of the Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, and Minnesota Vikings, quickly earned the nickname “Black and Blue Division” due to the teams' fierce, physical play. Through the years, many of the toughest men in pro football have played in the Black and Blue — from Butkus to Nitschke, Eller to Spielman, Favre to Singletary to Karras to the Purple People Eaters.

    Now known as the NFC North, the rivals still battle each other twice a year, celebrating their 40th season together in 2006. Black and Blue celebrates along with them, recalling the great plays and players, the memorable seasons, and the crucial games through first-hand interviews with players and coaches and first-rate photography. Capsule summaries of every game played in the division make this an essential reference for every football fan.
