If there were such a thing as an "elder" stateswoman in women's gymnastics today, Nadia Comaneci would win that title as readily as she once won gold medals. Olga Korbut came before her, and many other medalists would follow, but none has ever been as dominant in winning the hearts of millions around the world. With grit and determination, Nadia Comaneci ushered in a new era for women's sports, one where young girls could vault into the arena of superstardom. Even today, almost thirty years after her greatest triumphs, you need only mention the name "Nadia" and gymnastics fans know instantly whom you are talking about.In Letters to a Young Gymnast, Nadia shows what it takes to achieve athletic perfection and become the best. With inspiring and dramatic stories from her own experience, she tells us how the young girl that Bela Karolyi discovered in a Romanian elementary school found the inner strength to become a world-class athlete at such a young age. This collection of Nadia's memories, anecdotes, and advice grants unique insights into the mind of a top competitor. From how to live after you've realized your dream, to the necessity of "a spirit forged with mettle," Nadia's thoughts on athleticism and sacrifice are eye-opening and surprisingly challenging.

ONE COACH’S JOURNEY FROM EAST TO WEST: HOW THE FALL OF THE IRON CURTAIN CHANGED THE WORLD OF GYMNASTICS Until the fall of the Soviet Union the West and the Communists were engaged not only in a heated arms race but a race for Olympic gold, and Moscow poured tremendous resources into the effort, attracting some of the country's greatest minds. Author Vladimir Zaglada provides a look inside some of the Soviet Union’s gymnastics “think tanks,” such as the Moscow’s Lenin Institute. One Coach's Journey from East to West also introduces us to some of the brilliant and colorful figures that have advanced the art of gymnastics and examines how the flood of coaching talent into the West has shifted the "balance of power." The force of this "flood" has been somewhat impeded by cultural and language barriers, which are also discussed in the book. "Hot topics" such as the relentless increase in the difficulty level of artistic gymnastics are also discussed and a number of technical issues are covered, complete with illustrations. Zaglada provides a rare look inside the world of Soviet gymnastics at its height and provides information never before published in English. Did the machinery that cranked out Soviet gymnastics champions allow for a happy childhood? Why has the balance of power in gymnastics shifted in America's favor – but will Russia retake the throne? The rigid line between "amateurs" (who are true professionals in almost all senses of the word) and professionals – is the "amateur" in "amateur gymnastics sacred? Is there an ideal physique for women's gymnastics? How much of current American coaching practice can be traced back to Soviet sports institutes? Ever heard of the "profile system"? What is the difference between an Arabian, an Onodi, and a Mostepanova? Why a few basic terms are constant sources of confusion. How effective was the system of incentives for Soviet gymnasts and coaches? How did the nomenklatura system of privileges and patronage impact Soviet gymnastics?

Each of us, at some point in our lives, will have a knee bender a devastating event that has happened to you or someone you love that has caused you to fall to your knees to pray. In The Ride of Your Life, Faith Will Move You Forward, Tina Boyd will take you through her personal knee bender and will show you how she turned a tragic experience into a meaningful life lesson. Years of journaling and reflection have helped Tina to develop the "front wheel" model. The front-wheel model will encourage you to move forward and to embrace life, regardless of the challenges you are facing. She utilizes the mechanics of a wheel to guide you through the seven spokes of healing that will lead you down the road of faith towards God's love. Tina shares her deepest thoughts, pain, and spiritual healing to guide you through the blowouts, bumps, and wrong turns along your ride. The wheel concept is a practical guide to show you how to handle each step of your journey: shame, humility, forgiveness, and finally, gratitude. Tina's front-wheel concept with God as the hub of the wheel will help you understand your life's lessons. The rim will help you to understand God's everlasting love and promise of eternal life. Even if you have yet to have a significant blowout or wrong turn along your personal path, using this concept will guide you through the beautiful ride that God intends for you to have.

A young Jewish doctor prays to a coma patient's Blessed Mother on Christmas Eve, only to have the woman suddenly awakened; there is the voice that tells a too-busy ER doctor to stop a patient walking out, discovering an embolus that would have killed him. The late-night passing of a beloved aunt summons a childhood bully who shows up minutes later, after twenty-five years, to be forgiven and to heal a broken doctor. This ER doctor finds God's opposite in: a battered child's bruises covered over by make-up, a dying patient whose son finally shows up at the end to reclaim the man's high-top sneakers, the rich or celebrity patients loaded with prescription drugs from doctor friends who end up addicted. But, his real outrage is directed at our cavalier treatment of the elderly, If you put a G-tube in your 80-year-old mother with Alzheimer's because she's no longer eating, you will probably have a fast track to hell.
