Los 11 poderes del líder: El fútbol como escuela de vida

by Jorge Valdano

Las enseñanzas del fútbol para liderar y transformar equipos. «Todo juego de equipo convertido en espectáculo es un gran simulador de la vida que pone a prueba los límites individuales y el espíritu colectivo.»Jorge Valdano Jorge Valdano parte del convencimiento de que el fútbol, al igual que el resto de los deportes, nos ayuda a comprender al ser humano y, muy especialmente, aquellos estímulos que lo activan para alcanzar sus desafíos. Todo juego de equipo convertido en espectáculo es un gran simulador de la vida que pone a prueba los límites individuales y el espíritu colectivo. También nuestros miedos. De una experiencia que nos pone con tanta naturalidad y con tanta frecuencia al borde mismo de la exageración, se vuelve siempre con conocimientos que pueden ser aplicables a la cultura, la comunicación y, como demuestra este libro a través de múltiples ejemplos, también a la empresa.Los 11 poderes del líder parte de las experiencias del ámbito del deporte para ahondar en temas como el liderazgo, el trabajo en equipo, la motivación y todo lo que agita a un equipo de alta competición. A través de once grandes valores, ejemplificados por entrenadores, jugadores y momentos dramáticos del deporte que mueve el mundo, el autor resume los elementos clave del liderazgo en el siglo XXI. Los expertos opinan:«Jorge Valdano, en este libro, no habla propiamente sobre el fútbol, pero sí desde el fútbol. Analiza sus rasgos más genéricos, en cuanto "escuela de vida", con la genericidad capaz de envolver a otros muchos "mundos". Por ello los once poderes del líder que Valdano delimita pueden ser aplicados a las empresas, a las academias militares, incluso a la formación de clérigos. Es decir, puede servir de inspiración a todos aquellos que están comprometidos con el desarrollo de una obra cuya recurrencia no tiene límites en principio, puesto que desborda los del "ego diminuto".»Gustavo Bueno, filósofo «Este libro es un golazo de Valdano: indispensable para los aficionados, relevante para los empresarios y delicioso para cualquier lector.»Santiago Segurola, periodista «Como si de una alineación de fútbol se tratara, Jorge Valdano analiza once claves que definen a un líder. De lectura amena, plagado de anécdotas protagonizadas por algunos de los mejores futbolistas de todos los tiempos, este libro nos demuestra como la sencillez, la pasión por lo que uno hace, la credibilidad o la conciencia de equipo han sido esenciales para que estos deportistas alcancen el éxito. Estas mismas claves, aplicadas en el día a día, contribuyen tanto a fortalecer el liderazgo empresarial como a lograr una mayor autorrealización personal, siempre desde una perspectiva constructiva que busca crear, a largo plazo, una sociedad mejor.»Ángel Cano, consejero delegado del Grupo BBVA

112 Miles to the Pin: Extreme Golf Around the World

by Duncan Lennard

For many golfers, the innocent thrill of striking a drive clearly, avoiding a deep sand-trap, or holing out an unlikely putt is all they need to make a round (or a whole year) of golf memorable. But there's a group of modern players in search of something more. They've rediscovered the magic of the game in "extreme" golf, and their adventures are about to inspire golfers everywhere. Here are players like Andre Tolme, who decided to turn Mongolia into a par 11,880 course and Torsten Schilling, who spends his weekends teeing off from the side of his boat aiming for sites back on shore. From New Zealand's naked open to golf in Antarctica, Duncan Lennard describes a world at the very edge of the sport.

12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady's Fight for Redemption

by Casey Sherman Dave Wedge

The incredible story of Tom Brady and the Patriots' tumultuous 2016 season: from national disgrace to the greatest Super Bowl comeback of all time. In January 2015, rumors circulated that the New England Patriots--a team long suspected of abiding by the "if you ain't cheating you ain't trying" philosophy--had used under-inflated footballs in their playoff victory against the Indianapolis Colts. As evidence began to build, however, a full on NFL investigation was launched, exploding an unsubstantiated rumor into an intense scandal that would lead news coverage for weeks. As shockwaves rippled throughout the NFL system, the very legitimacy of one of the league's most popular teams and their star quarterback began to erode, even as the Patriots and Brady went on to win that year's Super Bowl. But as the celebrations gave way to the offseason, the investigation only intensified, reopening old wounds between the Patriots' powerful owner, Robert Kraft, and the NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell. Brady was devastated and seemingly more nervous in front of a judge that on a game-winning drive. When the dust settled, Brady would be able to play again - but only after watching the first four games of the 2016 season from his couch. The pressure couldn't have been more intense: Brady's legacy was at stake. If he failed to return to his usual self, all the critics and even the history books would have to put a giant asterisk next to his name, signifying one thing: he was a cheater.12 is the propulsive story of this gritty comeback. It's a drama that unfolds in the locker room, the court room, and under the brightest lights in all of sports--the Super Bowl. Now for the first time, readers will have an exclusive look into Tom Brady's experience and the NFL's shocking strangle-hold on their players. With unprecedented access to Brady himself, his teammates, and his lawyers, we will see just how a football legend went up against one of the largest corporations in the world to stage the greatest comeback in NFL history and emerge a god of the gridiron.

14 Minutes: A Running Legend's Life and Death and Life

by John Brant Alberto Salazar

In 2007, after collapsing on a practice field at the Nike campus, champion marathoner Alberto Salazar's heart stopped beating for 14 minutes. Over the crucial moments that followed, rescuers administered CPR to feed oxygen to his brain and EMTs shocked his heart eight times with defibrillator paddles. He was clinically dead. But miraculously, Salazar was back at the Nike campus coaching his runners just nine days later.Salazar had faced death before, but he survived that and numerous other harrowing episodes thanks to his raw physical talent, maniacal training habits, and sheer will, as well as—he strongly believes—divine grace.In 14 Minutes, Salazar chronicles in spellbinding detail how a shy, skinny Cuban-American kid from the suburbs of Boston was transformed into the greatest marathon runner of his era. For the first time, he reveals his tempestuous relationship with his father, a former ally of Fidel Castro; his early running life in high school with the Greater Boston Track Club; his unhealthy obsession to train through pain; the dramatic wins in New York, Boston, and South Africa; and how surviving 14 minutes of death taught him to live again.
