    14 minutes: a running legend's life and death and life

    Salazar, Alberto

    In 2007, champion marathoner Alberto Salazar's heart stopped beating for 14 minutes after he collapsed on a practice field at the Nike campus. Over the crucial moments that followed, rescuers administered CPR to feed oxygen to his brain and EMT's shocked his heart eight times with defibrillator paddles. He was clinically dead. Miraculously, Salazar was back at the Nike campus, coaching his runners, just nine days later. He had faced death before: a priest once administered Salazar his last rites after a devastating race in Falmouth, Massachusetts. 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 this book, Salazar chronicles in spellbinding detail how a shy, skinny Cuban-American kid from the suburbs of Boston transformed himself into the greatest marathon runner of his era. For the first time, he reveals his tempestuous relationship with his father; his early running life in high school with the Greater Boston Track Club; his unhealthy obsession with training through pain; the dramatic wins in New York, Boston, and South Africa; and how surviving 14 minutes of death taught him to live again.

    The 33-year-old rookie: my 13-year journey from the minor leagues to the world series

    Coste, Chris

    Chris Coste dreamed of playing major-league baseball from the age of seven. But after eleven grueling years in the minors, a spot on a major-league roster still seemed out of reach--until that fateful call came from the Philadelphia Phillies in May 2006. At age thirty-three ("going on eighty"), Coste was finally heading to the big time. This book is a real-life Rocky, an unforgettable and inspirational story of one man's unwavering pursuit of a lifelong goal. Beginning in a single-parent home in Fargo, North Dakota, and ending behind home plate on the flawless diamond of the Phillies' Citizens Bank Park--where fans and teammates call him "Chris Clutch" because of his knack for getting timely hits--this intimate account of Coste's baseball odyssey is a powerful story of determination, perseverance, and passion.

    Alexander the Great

    Freeman, Philip

    In the first authoritative biography of Alexander the Great written for a general audience in a generation, classicist and historian Philip Freeman tells the remarkable life of the great conqueror. The celebrated Macedonian king has been one of the most enduring figures in history. He was a general of such skill and renown that for two thousand years other great leaders studied his strategy and tactics, from Hannibal to Napoleon, with countless more in between. He flashed across the sky of history like a comet, glowing brightly and burning out quickly: crowned at age nineteen, dead by thirty-two. He established the greatest empire of the ancient world; Greek coins and statues are found as far east as Afghanistan. Our interest in him has never faded. Alexander was born into the royal family of Macedonia, the kingdom that would soon rule over Greece. Tutored as a boy by Aristotle, Alexander had an inquisitive mind that would serve him well when he faced formidable obstacles during his military campaigns. Shortly after taking command of the army, he launched an invasion of the Persian empire, and continued his conquests as far south as the deserts of Egypt and as far east as the mountains of present-day Pakistan and the plains of India. Alexander spent nearly all his adult life away from his homeland, and he and his men helped spread the Greek language throughout western Asia, where it would become the lingua franca of the ancient world. Within a short time after Alexander’s death in Baghdad, his empire began to fracture. Best known among his successors are the Ptolemies of Egypt, whose empire lasted until Cleopatra. In his lively and authoritative biography of Alexander, classical scholar and historian Philip Freeman describes Alexander’s astonishing achievements and provides insight into the mercurial character of the great conqueror. Alexander could be petty and magnanimous, cruel and merciful, impulsive and farsighted. Above all, he was ferociously, intensely competitive and could not tolerate losing—which he rarely did. As Freeman explains, without Alexander, the influence of Greece on the ancient world would surely not have been as great as it was, even if his motivation was not to spread Greek culture for beneficial purposes but instead to unify his empire. Only a handful of people have influenced history as Alexander did, which is why he continues to fascinate us.

    Alexander the Great: conqueror of the known world

    Nardo, Don.

    Alexander III of Macedonia, whom history came to call "the Great," was one of the most talented military generals who ever lived. By the time of his untimely death, at age thirty-two, in 323 BC, he had conquered an enormous portion of the known world. His empire stretched from Greece eastward to India and encompassed dozens of diverse people with separate languages and cultures. Few historical figures have been as widely feared, loved, hated, discussed, and immortalized in human memory as he.
