Giveaway: Role of a Lifetime


Product Description
We live in a world that all too often operates under the overriding template of self-promotion, embracing a "hooray for me" attitude, and which measures success in increasingly small timeframes dotted with markers of temporal value.

Millions of viewers know James Brown as a sports commentator and former athlete. With ROLE OF A LIFETIME, James reveals a different side of his character. Brown rose from a middle-class home to earn a scholarshipto Havard and a chance at a professional sports career before moving on to broadcast jouranlism. Part memoir and part self-help, this book draws on James' lessons from his faith and life experiences to guide readers to find fulfillment and significance. He offers values and encouragment to others of all generations, assisting them in their search for meaning in navigating a world that increasingly promotes transient values, if any at all. His message that shortcuts and gimmicks are counterproductive to a person's success provides hope that there is a God who cares about them and their futures.

About the Author
James Brown graduated from Harvard in 1973 with a degree in American Government. He resides in Bethesda, MD with his wife, Dorothy. His daughter, Katrina, and husband, John Walker, reside in New Jersey with their daughter Kaela.

  12. I read your review of Already Gone. It sounds like an interesting read and one that I would like to read. But...I think when I read it, I will be comparing the experiences in the book to experiences as a Catholic parent, since that is what I am.

    I posted a comment on the review.

  13. I also read your review of Holy Bullet. I know this is fiction but the plot does center around the death of Pope John Paul I.

    I think that we all were shocked and saddened by the sudden death of this pope. Sometimes, I can't help but wonder, why and what if, about the circumstances of this pope who only got to be pope for a short time.

    Thanks for the review. This sounds like an interesting read and one that I would like to read. I posted a comment on the review also.
