Frank Deford is one of the most beloved sports journalists in America. A contributing writer to Sports Illustrated for more than fifty years, and a longtime correspondent on Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, these days, Deford is perhaps best known for his weekly commentaries on NPR’s “Morning Edition.” Since 1980, Deford has recorded 1,600 of them, and in I’d Know That Voice Anywhere he brings together the very best, creating a charming, insightful, and wide-ranging look at athletes and the world of sports. In I’d Know That Voice Anywhere, Deford discusses everything from sex scandals and steroids to why, in a culture dominated by celebrity, sport is the only field on earth where popularity and excellence thrive in tandem. This page-turning compendium covers more than thirty years of sports history while showcasing the vast range of Deford’s interests and opinions, including his thoughts on the NCAA, why gay athletes “play straight,” and why he’s worried about living in an economy that is so dominated by golfers. A rollicking sampler of one of NPR’s most popular segments, I’d Know That Voice Anywhere is perfect for sports enthusiasts—as well as sports skeptics—and a must-read for any Frank Deford fan.

Vayl is the CIA's top assassin. A master of black ops, he has never failed. He's also a 291-year-old vampire. Assigned to protect Vayl, if such a formidable creature can be said to require protection, is Jasmine Parks - 'Jaz' to her friends. But Jaz has got problems - and not just the run-of-the-mill ones you'd expect from someone whose job consists of putting her life on the line for an undead assassin. She hasn't had sex in god knows how long, so Vayl's almost overpowering vampire charisma is making it increasingly difficult for her to keep their relationship . . . professional. Her personal life is a long line of missed birthdays and Christmases, and lies and excuses to her family. And then there's that other thing: the blackouts. See, there's times that Jaz can't account for and things that happen in those times that Vayl - not to mention the CIA - may not appreciate. And if they find out, Jasmine knows it won't just be her contract that's terminated . . .

Victory Lap Retirement

You could live another thirty years or more. What are you going to do with that time? This book can help you find the answers.

The key to a happy retirement may be . . . not retiring. Work because you want to, not because you have to, to achieve balance, health, and purpose in your life after full-time employment. Retirees are living longer than ever before and many will have to finance as many years in retirement as they had in their entire working career. So now, the old idea of full-stop retirement - going from 100 per cent work mode to 100 per cent leisure mode - is neither sustainable nor desirable. Besides, many studies have shown that those who stay engaged, challenged, and stimulated stay healthier and live longer. Continuing to work to some degree after you have left your full-time career can actually improve your health and increase your lifespan. The key is to work because you want to and not because you have to. Instead of continuing to run the organizational rat race or being stuck on the treadmill of life, you can learn how to break through the finish line of financial independence and plan your own Victory Lap, a blend between work and play that each person intentionally designs for themselves. This book explains the concept of Victory Lap Retirement, outlines the benefits, and shows you how to plan for your own unique Victory Lap - the post-employment lifestyle that's right for you - allowing you to live life to the fullest, on your terms, while you are young enough to enjoy it. The second edition contains new information on decumulation, strategies retirees can use to safely draw down their assets to help finance their Victory Lap, as well as many additional examples. "This wise book rests on some important truths: We all crave lives of meaning, we want to continue to grow and learn throughout our years, and financial well-being is central to our health and happiness. Victory Lap Retirement is a how-to guide for making all of those goals come together into a truly modern retirement plan." Christine Benz, Director of Personal Finance and Senior Columnist, Morningstar, Inc. "[The authors] say the full-stop retirement doesn't work anymore, and I agree. Start planning your Victory Lap." - Rob Carrick, Personal Finance Columnist, The Globe and Mail "I've long believed that the idea of retiring at sixty-five is as outdated as the horse and buggy. You could live another thirty years or more. What are you going to do with that time? This book can help you find the answers." - Gordon Pape, Bestselling Author and Publisher of The Internet Wealth Builder and The Income Investor "Victory Lap Retirement provides a great model for finding the right balance between today and tomorrow, work and play, family and self, financial independence and fun. It's a brilliant roadmap for being deliberate about your priorities and to avoid ending up just being a cog in the wheel of life. The authors masterfully leverage their personal experience and the lessons learned from working with thousands of clients, bucking the tired old model of retirement and instead offering readers a detailed roadmap to deliberately create a far more meaningful, interesting, and fulfilling second half of life." - Brent Brodeski, CEO, Savant Capital Management "The authors reframe the idea of retirement as a smart twist on an age-old dilemma. The science of well-being later in life tells us we need to have a purpose - why not make a few bucks while you're at it? This book will open your mind to what your Victory Lap might be if the thought of doing nothing at some point is foreign to you." - Larry Berman, Host of BNN Bloomberg's Berman's Call, and Chief Investment Officer, ETF Capital Management
