When your wife throws you out of the house, no one gives you an instruction manual. You’re officially on your own! Zachary Brooks was once in that exact situation—left on the sidewalk like the trash. He felt alone, scared, helpless, and unsure what to do next. His number one priority was maintaining a close relationship with his son. So many questions swirled through his head: When will I be allowed to see my son again? What did I do to deserve this? What could happen next? How am I supposed to get through this? When he went to the Internet and libraries to search for information, he found legal jargon and condescending rhetoric from lawyers, social workers, politicians and overly educated individuals who had never personally experienced the sheer brutality of a divorce. He wrote this guide to help other dads better understand and manage the critical elements of their divorce while remaining a beacon of light in the lives of their children. “As a divorced dad, while reading this book, I found myself relating to each story, each situation, and each feeling associated with the process of divorce. A book, such as this, would have benefited me immensely if it was released before or during my ‘eviction.’ This is the person that you want to learn from.” —Seth Lerman, professor, author

Drawn from more than 60 interviews and hours of face time, this authorized biography offers an unprecedented inside-the-dugout look at the manager who guided the New York Yankees to their 27th world championship. Beginning with his childhood in the baseball mecca of Chicago, this book traces Joe Girardi's rise from a catcher at Northwestern University to his time in the minors, his 15 years in the majors, and his successful career as a manager. As much a character portrait of the man as a chronicle of his achievements, this study reveals the amalgam of influences--the relentless work ethic learned from his father combined with the systematic mind of an engineer, the baseball know-how instilled by the likes of Don Zimmer and Joe Torre, and the heart of his tenacious mother--that combined to propel Girardi to his current stature.

Loyalty to a great cause raises some of the most profound issues in philosophy, and loyalty to the greatest of all causes, the Boston Red Sox, poses these questions in the sharpest possible way. The Red Sox and Philosophy brings together a team of thirty of America's leading thinkers (twenty-eight of them citizens of Red Sox Nation), to unravel some of the mysteries of the Red Sox. Can we adapt Anselm's proof of the existence of God to prove that the Red Sox are the greatest conceivable sports team? Why are Red Sox fans moral heroes? Can the science of sabermetrics be reconciled with the religion of baseball? Are pink Red Sox hats rationally defensible? These and other challenging problems are solved in The Red Sox and Philosophy. - Publisher.

Two years after the establishment of the American Baseball League in 1901, New Yorkers Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the American League Baltimore Orioles for $18,000 and moved the franchise to New York. They built a stadium in Washington Heights and called the team the Highlanders. This was the humble beginning of the legendary New York Yankees, who went on to be the greatest winning team of the twentieth century. This fascinating pictorial history of the Yankees chronicles the evolution of the team between 1903 and 1928. Featured are rare and spectacular photographs of players, managers, the early spring training sites, and Hilltop Park. Highlights include the team's rivalry with John McGraw's New York Giants; the story of pitcher Jack Chesbro, who despite his record forty-one wins, lost the pennant because of a wild pitch in the last game of the season; the construction of Yankee Stadium, completed in 1923; and the development by 1927 of one of the Yankees' greatest teams, which included Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.
