Winning in the 5th Quarter
Santa Rosa Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 29, 2009
Just in time for Superbowl XLIII, a new book, "Winning in the 5th Quarter" (published by Morgan James), by Bob Beck, offers up a winning game plan on how anyone can apply football principles to create and build on a personal foundation of excellence. In its first day on Amazon.com, the book reached the #1 best-seller slot in Sports.
"The hardest part of playing the game of life is that most of the time, you don't have teammates or a crowd cheering you on," says Beck. "That's exactly why I've written this book - to give players in the game of life access to the highest levels of planning, practice, discipline and determination to reach their own goal line."
Written for newly-retiring athletes, the book is also practical for armchair quarterbacks, football widows and others who are looking for a fresh approach to tap into their innate greatness. Revealing behind-the-scenes football plays, Beck shows that the way to win on the game court of life is both a practical and ongoing journey.
A former competitive football player in high school and college, Beck is an entrepreneur who's taken companies from start-up to public offerings - using football strategies. It wasn't always this way. His most humbling experience was graduating from college, degree in hand, no pro-football prospects - and going on welfare. Today, using the principles behind football and applying them to life, his experience is varied -- as an executive partner and board member to several firms, international consulting and a father of four.
