Calling Up is a guide for coaches of all sports at all levels that presents a step-by-step process to building a transformational culture, starting with changing coaching behaviors, attitudes, and language. Modern-day coaches face the same challenges every day: entitled youth, overinvolved parents, and the community and administration’s expectation for wins. Coaching does not just take a great deal of time; it takes an emotional and physical toll, and coaches need to know they are not the only ones facing these struggles. After over 11 years of coaching, and his own coaching philosophy transformation, J.P. Nerbun felt called to share the hard lessons that could not be found in a book when he started coaching. Calling Up provides an easily accessible and inspiring story as J.P. details the transformative experience of a high school basketball coach named Daniel and his year-long struggle to keep his job while working to become the coach he always wanted to be. Apart from the entertaining and relatable story, which connects with coaches on a personal level, Calling Up provides coaches with principles based on scientific research and personal experience that explore how people learn, what motivates them, and the human condition. These principles are shared by some of the most highly qualified and successful coaches in sports and J.P. also provides specific tools and explains how those tools are applied within the context of a team. At the end of the day, Calling Up shows coaches not just how to build great athletes, but how to build great people.

"Fight the Good Fight" provides inspiration for individuals who choose to embrace adversity in order to reach success. Over twenty years ago Ben Newman suffered the loss of her mother after years of watching her health deteriorate. After her tragic passing, his grandmother gave him an unexpected gift, in the form of a journal his mother left behind... Though the journal was intended to simply serve as a record of his mother's medical ordeal and not as a personal memoir for others, upon reading it Ben and his brother discovered a surprising abundance of wisdom imparted within its pages. Being able to see his mother's thoughts on how to live as a champion amidst the battle for her life inspired and touched Ben, as much as if this journal was a letter written personally to him. As Ben Newman shares select passages of the journal in his book, "Fight the Good Fight," his greatest hope is that you as the reader will be inspired and encouraged by his mother's struggle and endurance. A journey that is poignant, emotional, and sometimes heartbreaking, this is a story that you will remember forever in your soul. "This book really touched me. I believe it will cause you to reflect upon and honor the heroes of your past and inspire you to create your future." -Jon Gordon, Author of "The Energy Bus" and "Training Camp" "'Fight the Good Fight' will enable you to live with more purpose and conviction, and will provide the tools to unleash the champion in you " -Roland Williams, 8-year NFL veteran and Super Bowl Champion
