"This book provides practical strategies for developing the mental skills which help speed you to your full potential."---Dave Winfield What does it mean to play heads-up baseball? A heads-up player has confidence in his ability, keeps control in pressure situations, and focuses on one pitch at a time. His mental skills enable him to play consistently at or near his best despite the adversity baseball presents each day. "My ability to fully focus on what I had to do on a daily basis was what made me the successful player I was. Sure I had some natural ability, but that only gets you so far. I think I learned how to focus; it wasn't something that I was necessarily born with." -- Hank Aaron "Developing and refining my mental game has played a critical role in my success in baseball. For years players have had to develop these skills on their own. This book provides practical strategies for developing the mental skills that will help speed you toward your full potential." -- Dave Winfield

The Naval Academy's culture is a unique and sometimes baffling phenomenon to the outside world, but with this newly updated guide in hand relatives and friends of midshipmen will find answers to all the questions they might have about Academy life. Since it was first published more than a decade ago, parents have relied on the almanac for insights into their sons' and daughters' experiences at Annapolis. Now the son of the original author has taken on the responsibility of bringing the popular reference up to date. An Academy graduate, active duty naval officer, and former English instructor at the Academy, the younger Mackenzie makes full use of his intimate knowledge of Annapolis to fill in the gaps. Along with the latest facts on car ownership, dating policies, athletic requirements, and disciplinary demands, you'll now find a useful guide to Internet resources. A midshipman profile and a dictionary of "Midspeak" completes the picture in a book whose title recalls the midshipmen's own manual, Reef Points, but extends its concept for outsiders seeking practical information about the Academy, the Navy, and Annapolis. Prospective applicants, graduates, newcomers to the USNA staff, and visitors seeking a memento will also be attracted to this useful guide.

Recuerda que vas a morir. Vive es una inolvidable reflexión llena de vida de lo que significa enfrentarse a la muerte. «Cuatro palabras de Samuel Beckett empezaron a repetirse en mi cabeza: No puedo seguir. Seguiré.» A la edad de treinta y seis años, y a punto de acabar una década de residencia para obtener un puesto fijo como neurocirujano, a Paul Kalanithi se le diagnosticó un cáncer de pulmón. Pasó de ser un doctor que trataba casos graves a ser un paciente que luchaba por vivir. En este libro, cargado de positivismo, Kalanithi reflexiona sobre las grandes cuestiones de la vida mientras se enfrenta a la muerte. “La realidad de la muerte es inquietante, pero no hay otra manera de vivir”, Paul Kalanithi
