Triumph : the untold story of Jesse Owens and Hitler's Olympics by Jeremy Schaap( Recording )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1936, against a backdrop of swastikas flying and storm troopers looming, an African American son of sharecroppers set three world records and won an unprecedented four gold medals, single-handedly crushing Hitler's myth of Aryan supremacy. The story of Jesse Owens at the 1936 Olympic Games is that of a high-profile athlete giving a performance that transcends sports. But it is also the intimate and complex tale of the courage of one remarkable man. Drawing on unprecedented access to the Owens family, previously unpublished interviews, and exhaustive archival research, Jeremy Schaap transports us to Nazi Germany to weave this dramatic tale. From the start, American participation in the games was controversial. A boycott, based on reports of Nazi hostility to Jews, was afoot, but it was thwarted by the president of the American Olympic Committee. At the games themselves the plots and intrigues continued: Owens was befriended by a German rival, broad jumper Luz Long, who helped Ow

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everyone knows that baseball is a game of intricate regulations, but it turns out to be even more complicated than we realize. What truly governs the Major League game is a set of unwritten rules, some of which are openly discussed and some of which only a minority of players are aware of. In The Baseball Codes, old-timers and all-time greats share their insights into the game's most hallowed, and least known, traditions. For learned and casual baseball fans alike, the result is illuminating and entertaining. At the heart of this book are incredible, often hilarious stories involving national heroes, like Mickey Mantle, and notorious headhunters, like Bob Gibson, in a century-long series of confrontations over respect, honor, and the soul of the game

Broken windows, broken business : how the smallest remedies reap the biggest rewards by Michael Levine( )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Small things make all the difference in business". Once every few years a book comes along with an insight so penetrating, so powerful and so simply, demonstrably true, that it instantly changes the way we think and do business. Such a book is Broken windows, broken business, a breakthrough in management theory that can alter the destiny of countless companies striving to stay ahead of their competition. In this vital and seminal work, author Michael Levine - whose Guerrilla P.R. has become a standard text of public relations theory and is taught at the graduate business schools of Harvard, Stanford, and Northwestern - offers compelling evidence that problems in business, large and small, typically stem from inattention to tiny details. Constant attention to detail not only demonstrates corporate competence, but also shows that the company cares about what the consumer wants. Broken windows - and peeling paint, worn carpets, and poorly maintained restrooms - send the oppsite signal: that the business doesn't care
