What do Henry Kissinger, Jon Stewart, Condoleezza Rice, and Jon Bon Jovi have in common? They all have reached the top of their respective professions, and credit organized sports for teaching them the lessons that made success. In his years spent interviewing and profiling celebrities, politicians, and top business professionals, Brian Kilmeade has learned that almost these influential citizens have something in common: a love of sports, and a story about how a game, coach, or moment changed their lives. In this enlightening collection, Kilmeade presents over thirty stories, straight from the memories of the men and women themselves, as well as those who were by their side. These vignettes will entertain, surprise, and inspire readers with their insight into the lives of America's most respected and well-known personalities, many of whom have never before shared these memories publicly. How did Henry Kissinger's experience on an all-Jewish soccer team in Nazi Germany shape him for his future role as a statesman? Why does President Gerald Ford credit his early days playing football for his success in politics? So now, readers can benefit from the recollections and stories of some of America's best and brightest that went on to futures in other fields, but never forgot the lessons they learned through athletics.
