    ESPN’s rise is one of the most remarkable stories about business and sports in our time, and nobody can tell it better than George Bodenheimer. It may be hard to believe, but not long ago, getting sports updates was difficult and frustrating. ESPN changed everything. George Bodenheimer knows. Initially hired to work in the mailroom, one of Bodenheimer’s first jobs was to pick up sportscaster Dick Vitale at the Hartford airport and drive him to ESPN’s main campus—a couple of trailers in a dirt parking lot. But as ESPN grew, so did George’s status in the company. In fact, Bodenheimer played a major part in making ESPN a daily presence not just in the United States, but all over the world. In this business leadership memoir—written with bestselling author Donald T. Phillips—Bodenheimer lays out ESPN’s meteoric rise. Every Town Is a Sports Town is a book for business readers and sports fans alike.

    Donald Sterling. Ray Rice. The Washington Redskins. The Miami Dolphins. NCAA athletes. These names, among countless others, have blanketed the headlines as the media has brought global attention to several recent sports controversies. Now Kenneth L. Shropshire, the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania professor of legal studies and business ethics and director of the Wharton Sports Business Initiative, uses these stories as a prism for exploring the leadership challenges facing team owners, management, players, and fans. In Sport Matters, Shropshire examines the need for diversity, inclusion, respect, and equality in sports, focusing on the need for leadership to embrace and deliver these principles in a real and tangible way within the sports industry. He also introduces the Sports Power Matrix, a framework for understanding power within the sports industry. Sport Matters addresses what the Donald Sterling drama can teach us about race and the need for inclusion at the ownership level, the lessons learned from the NFL and Ray Rice case, the Washington Redskins name and the economics of change, what the Miami Dolphins matter tells us about respect in the workplace and beyond, and compensation and equality in “amateur” sports. Sport Matters, filled with disturbing revelations and uncomfortable truths, also provides hope, revealing how obstacles to achieving an ideal culture of equality and respect within the sports industry can be removed. Shropshire argues that while change matters, continued emphasis on diversity, inclusion, and respect is needed to create true progress.

    The world had doubted Greece’s ability to successfully stage the 2004 Olympic Games. In rescuing the Athens Olympics and delivering what IOC  president Jacques Rogge called an “unforgettable dream games,” Gianna Angelopoulos also delivered a new Greece, a modern can-do nation, a Greece worthy of its illustrious heritage. Little did she know that a few years later her country would abandon the lessons of the Olympics and become embroiled in a political and economic crisis that would devastate Greece and threaten the economic security of Europe. In My Greek Drama, Gianna Angelopoulos—known in her home country simply as “Gianna”—has written a memoir that is as much about Greece’s journey as her own. From her childhood in Crete, to law school in Thessaloniki, to Athens, where she overcame male-dominated legal and political cultures to help redefine public service in Greece, Gianna worked her way into becoming one of the most respected women in Greek public life. Balancing motherhood, business, and a place in the upper echelons of world society, Gianna never lost her passion for public service and brought the 2004 Olympic Games back from the brink of catastrophe. Her life, her Cinderella love story, and her intensity of will are equally unforgettable. From stories of handing out basil seeds on the streets of Athens to courting the world on behalf of her country, My Greek Drama captures the burning ambition of the rebellious girl from the island of Crete who “lit” the Olympic torch. Her story should help rekindle the spirit of the Greek people and of every person who has ever struggled to change the world.

    It’s a dog-eat-dog world. Don’t be on the menu. What are the differences between a winning and losing performance? Why are we able to rise to the challenge one day, but wilt from it the next? Can we in fact become better competitors? In Top Dog, Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman use cutting-edge science to tease out the hidden factors at the core of every great triumph—and every tragic failure. By enabling you to identify your own competitive style, Top Dog will help you tip the odds of success in your favor. Integrating wisdom from politics, finance, genetics, neuroscience, psychology, military training, sports, economics, education, and more, Top Dog offers counterintuitive, game-changing insights into the nature of competition, such as:  – Why the home field advantage in sports is just as relevant in diplomacy and deal-making– That women are better at judging risk, while men are better at ignoring it—and how this plays out on K Street and Wall Street – Why younger siblings are more competitive than first-borns, and how early-childhood influences shape competitive styles forever – That the shape of entrepreneurs’ hands can be just as revealing as their business plans  – How a single biochemical can predict a winner before an event has even begun   – Why discord can be better than harmony, and why stars on a team do deserve special treatment.   As President Dwight Eisenhower said, “What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight—it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” In Top Dog, Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman reveal the size of the fight in all of us.

    Moneyball is a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can’t buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the giant offices of major league teams and the dugouts. But the real jackpot is a cache of numbers collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers, and physics professors. In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Lewis shows us how and why the new baseball knowledge works. He also sets up a sly and hilarious morality tale: Big Money, like Goliath, is always supposed to win…How can we not cheer for David?
