Ten-year-old Kenny (Kenji in Japanese) worships his older brother, Mickey (Mitsuo), a baseball hero whose outstanding performance on the Asahi baseball team has given him fame and popularity. Despite Kenny's suspected heart condition, he is determined to practice secretly with Mickey so he, too, can one day try out for the Asahi. But world events soon overtake life in this quiet community. When Japan attacks Pearl Harbor in 1941, everything for Kenny and his family spirals out of control: schools are closed, businesses are confiscated, fathers are arrested and sent to work camps in the BC interior and mothers and children are relocated to internment camps. When Mickey is arrested for a small act of violence, Kenny manages to keep his family's spirits up, despite the deplorable conditions in camp. Coming across a "vacant" field covered with scrap wood, broken shakes and torn tar paper, Kenny gets permission to clear it and convert it into a baseball field. One by one, the boys in the camp pitch in, and the work gives purpose to their long days. Kenny's persistence, hard work and big dreams shape the teen he is to become in this story of happiness found despite all odds.

Wow, my second book, and my first book is now in bookstores. This book 'The Heart Of A Champion' will start off with the most talked about men and women of the bible, who were all champions in their own right. Most of whom had sorted, less than perfect lives, some started out righteous then backslid, some started out as murderers, thieves, drunks, prostitutes, gamblers, then through God's grace and forgiveness became some of the most righteous and well known followers of God and Jesus Christ. I will use these people of the bible first, depicting their lives, from good to bad, or bad to good, and how it now affects us in our present day lives. For the people of the bible could be considered our mentors from the past who through their own lives back then mold us to how we should be in our present day.

Bo Schembechler was a competitor. His life defined the word as appropriately as any other. He played football at Miami University (Ohio) under the legendary Woody Hayes and was eventually hired by Hayes at Ohio State. Perhaps it was there, working under Hayes, that Bo Schembechler learned the traits of integrity and hard work that would serve him so well as the head coach at Michigan and in his 37-year battle with heart disease. The fiercely competitive Schembechler defeated his mentor in his very first season at Michigan and the rivalry between two friends became one of the greatest in all of sport. He also defeated a myriad of health problems with his classic preparation and game-day intensity for nearly four decades. The Heart of a Champion is Bo's way of sharing his game plan to fight our nation's #1 killer—cardiovascular disease—and to inspire others fighting for their lives to win. Bo battled high blood pressure, arthrosclerosis, atrial fibrillation, diabetes, and heart failure. He proved that a diagnosis of cardiovascular disease need not be a death sentence if you can build a team to help you put a game plan together to beat it. As you read this book, you will see how one man chose to beat all the odds, much longer than anyone could have imagined. You can learn how to fight our nation's #1 killer and share it with loved ones who may need a game plan of their own. Bo's cardiologist, Dr. Kim Eagle, gives the reader a practical and informative overview of numerous health problems and how to fight them. Bo's friends and colleagues provide an intimate perspective on his life—on and off the field—and the University of Michigan program he loved so dearly.

The Heart of a Champion

Champion? There are a lot of books and videos on the topic of success. But what is success? It can be defined in so many ways. Is it financial?

Why do some people with so much go nowhere and some with so little go so far? What leads a poor kid to become champion of the world? Steve Karagioules—an athlete, corporate trainer, motivational speaker, husband, and father—explores the traits that separate strong performers from underperformers and also reveals in this guide to achieving success the five key principles to success. He shares insights such as the following: —The greats understand that common effort does not lead to uncommon results. By doing what most others won’t, they achieve what most others don’t. —Your potential and greatness aren’t measured by your bank account; that is a really narrow way to think about greatness. Your greatness is about going after your best. —To become a champion, stopping isn’t an option. You must continue to work every day to achieve your full potential. Learn what keeps people from succeeding, how to define success for yourself, and about the five simple “heartbeats” that will help you go further than ever before.

Winter is finally melting into spring — but with everything in flux, from Cody’s friendships down to her shoe size, will she be able to stay true to herself? In Cody’s life, some people keep her on her toes — just like Mother Nature, who is warm one day and snowy the next. Or like Cody’s brother, Wyatt, who has started wearing collared shirts because his girlfriend likes them. Meanwhile, Pearl has begun playing soccer and it’s all she can talk about. Spencer is busy creating a mysterious museum underneath GG’s house and he's never around to play. And Spencer’s mom doesn’t look any different. . . . Could she really have a baby growing inside her? Maybe the baby is like Cody’s beloved ants, waiting patiently inside the earth for spring to arrive. It seems like everything around Cody is changing — from seasons to friendships — but if she can just navigate it all with her trademark enthusiasm and charm, maybe the most important things will stay the same.
