    Tired of Having It But Not Using It? Author Todd Thomas

    in Books

    Mental performance expert and personal achievement author Todd Thomas has seen many people throughout his life reach for their goals and fall short over and over again, including himeself. He's seen those who are wildly successful yet dissatisfied because there's a passionately held goal they never go for.

    Todd, sometimes referred to as the "people whisperer" for his coaching style and skill that brings out the best in people, is known for his practical, simple, and common sense style; Todd's fusion of real life stories and his conversational light hearted approach connects with his audiences at an intimate and individual level.

    Producer of ESPN 'The Sports Reporters' - Joe Valerio - Second to None (author)

    in Sports

    From yesterday's (4/22/2015) live broadcast of The Thomas Loop Radio Show on WJJL 1440-AM.  The Thomas Loop Radio Show on WJJL 1440-AM is on facebook and twitter (@TheThomasLoop) 


    Joseph Valerio - Producer of The Sports Reporters on ESPN; author of Second to None (The Relentless Drive and Impossible Dream of the Super Bowl Bills) - by Triumph Books 


    Overview


    In Second to None, author Joe Valerio tells the incredible story of the Buffalo Bills: the perpetual almost-champions and their indomitable fans. The Bills' incredible skill and teamwork on the field was matched only by their single-minded determination as, in the four years spanning 1991 to 1994, the team won four consecutive conference championships, and lost four consecutive Super Bowls. The peaks and nadirs of their record reflect a fascinatingly dynamic, uneven, and—at times—uncontrollable array of talents. Valerio renders in sharp detail how the Bills' unique culture was formed by an unlikely ecosystem of world-class athletes hunkered down in bleak western New York, far away from the celebrity playgrounds of other pro teams. Meticulously researched and carefully crafted, this one-of-a-kind look inside the Super Bowl-era Buffalo Bills is based on extensive interviews with the key players, coaches, and management, including Hall of Famers Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith, as well as coach Marv Levy, general manager Bill Polian, and many others, including players and coaches from opposing teams, and the reporters who covered them.
