West Point Woman: How Character is Created and Leadership is Learned

by Sara Potecha

A Leadership Book for the Ages:
Principles to Guide You & Stories to Inspire You

The best leaders in the world have come out of West Point — the likes of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, General George S. Patton, and corporate leaders, such as Marsh Carter, former Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, and Alex Gorsky, CEO of Johnson & Johnson. In many ways, the United States Military Academy (USMA) — West Point — is synonymous with leadership. Notably, however, the names that most people associate with this venerable institution have included only men.

The first few classes of women at West Point faced numerous obstacles to graduate, yet through the cauldron of that experience they developed a formidable hardiness that firmly places them among the best of the best.

Discover How Character is Created and Leadership is Learned
West Point Woman is a leadership memoir for readers at all levels of organizational leadership, and applicable across industries, genders and professional expertise.
— What are the LEADERSHIP SKILLS that the first women at West Point learned, which helped them succeed in an often-hostile environment?
— What are the LEADERSHIP PRINCIPLES that make a West Point woman resilient and extraordinary, and how might you incorporate those tenets into your own leadership repertoire?
West Point Woman, the new book by Sara Potecha, offers up a leadership arsenal.

As an exceptional storyteller and leadership practitioner, Sara will arm you and your organization with the essential leadership skills needed to fight the “battles” of your current experience. Topics explored in the book include:

-Doing the right thing, no matter the cost
-Why building camaraderie matters
-Why humble leadership works
-Finding solutions through innovation
-The power of humor and laughter
-Failing fast and moving ahead more quickly
-The role of love in leading
-Surviving death and loss in the midst of leading
-Thriving in spite of “the system”
-Leaving a leadership legacy through sponsorship and mentorship

Child Killer: The True Story of The Atlanta Child Murders (True Crime)

by Jack Rosewood

From the summer of 1979 through the spring of 1981, Atlanta, Georgia was held under siege by a serial killer and dozens of victims started to appear. The series of murders, which became known as the “Atlanta Child Murders case,” gripped the city of Atlanta with fear and shocked the nation because most of the victims were children. The fact that the victims were all black and mostly male caused many in Atlanta’s black community to fear that their children were being targeted by a racist conspiracy.

In this true crime book you will read about how the Atlanta Child Murders case put a city under siege and how a task force of law enforcement officers from several different agencies eventually captured the killer. You will follow the investigation as the police use what was at the time fairly new techniques of criminal profiling and fiber evidence to capture and convict the killer. For many around the country, once the killer was arrested, it was difficult to accept. The killer was a young, nerdy-looking man named Wayne Williams. To many people his background didn’t seem to indicate he was a serial killer, but the professional profilers knew otherwise!

Open the pages of the following book and learn the true story of Wayne Williams and the Atlanta Child Murders. You will learn about how Williams evolved from a nerdy kid who loved electronics into what is perhaps the most prolific black serial killer. You will be horrified by some of the details of this case, but you will not be able to put down this book.

Broken Silence : Living with Passion and Purpose after Sexual Abuse, A Dancer’s Story

by Jean Dorff

I am Jean Dorff, and was sexual abused from the age of 7 by close family members. As young as I was, I knew that something terribly wrong was done to me. I became very inwards focused and started to create walls around me that only a few could see and come through. On the outside, I appeared to be a happy and joyous child but on the inside I was afraid, I was angry and felt pain physical and emotional.

I developed a shame about myself and my sexuality and I hated my abusers. I hated the world I lived in. At the age of 17 I felt so much hate that I didn’t wanted to go on. My life started to fall apart and I could have easily chosen a path of self-destruction, something that some of my siblings did dealing with the same stuff, but I did not. I found forgiveness, although I don’t even know how, I believe it was Devine Intervention. I concentrated myself on martial arts and solving the mysteries of the â??Why’ of life.

I would love to tell you that from this point all problems were over, but I think you already know that that was not the case. So often I got overwhelmed by the memories of my abuse, triggered by simple daily events. I struggled to keep intimate relationships or being intimate all together. I escaped in work, social media, sports and travel. I tried to escape from everything. Running away was sometimes the only way for me to deal with normal life. I so often neglected the people around me including my own family. I even had fear that, I as an abuse victim, I would become an abuser myself. This circle of shame, fear, loneliness and mistrust had to be broken. It simply had to, If not for me then for my family.

I discovered a passion for dance. It kept me sane and perhaps even made me sane in the end. I felt most alive when I danced and I still do.

THE END OF MY STRUGGLE AND A NEW BEGINNING

For years now, I am healed, healed from the sexual abuse, but may be more so healed from the aftermath. The memories and scars are still there and I sometimes wish they were gone too, but then again, they remind me that I was victorious in my battle, that I found my inner strength and passion. I now live a thriving life on the terms I want.

I started to walk back on the path of abuse and felt that I could help people who were still on that path. My life experiences, my training as martial artist, dance teacher and coach equipped me to help other sexual abuse victims to move forward away from that path, onto a new path of light, empowerment, healing and joy. A path on which they can walk confidently in a body that feels comfortable again, with a mind that is confident to take on new challenges and opportunities. And when the flashback of the abuse get triggered and want to pull them back on that dark path, then I support them how to cope with that too.

I hope that the scars of what I’ve been through become the healing of others.

Thatâ??s All?

by Kimberly S. Ennis

Fresh out of college, Kim Ennis imagined that her first adult job would bring a sense of freedom and direction. However, like many other young professionals, her first few weeks of adulthood were a jarring mix of uncertainty, boredom, and loneliness. It wasn’t until she met Nichole Evans that her life transformed. Nichole was young, outgoing, and kind, and the two quickly built a close friendship. Nichole even introduced her to a boy named Shane who swept Kim off of her feet. Just when it seemed like Kim’s life had reached perfection, a tragic accident severely injured her and took Nichole’s life. Kim was left with a great deal of physical pain and a nearly impossible emotional recovery. She blamed herself for Nichole’s death and struggled to find a sense of meaning and purpose. Speckled with Kim’s dry sense of humor, this touching memoir tells the story of Kim’s attempts to rebuild the shattered remains of her life as she confronts her greatest fears, discovers love, and finds strength and courage from those who are closest to her.

My Journey to Hell and Back with Chronic Pain

by Tony Sorendo

What is hell? That depends on your perspective. For first-time author Tony Sorendo, Hell was a physically and emotionally painful journey with chronic pain wrought with heartache, disappointment, and despair as he made his way toward an awakening of positivity and a life dedicated to helping others.

In a page-turner that is admittedly “his story,” Sorendo allows readers to truly live in, relate to, and feel a world in which an estimated 80 million Americans or more are trapped today: the world of chronic pain.

With unbridled candor and honesty, Sorendo intimately shares the depths of his despair as he chronicles the seemingly never ending trials and tribulations that so many individuals in chronic painâ??and the people who love themâ??will recognize and sympathize with. Pain. Injuries. Insurance. Lawyers. Doubts. Anger. Frustration. Loneliness. Isolation. Depression.

An inspirational must-read for anyone awake in this world, My Journey to Hell and Back with Chronic Pain isn’t just one man’s story or a story about chronic pain. And it’s not a how-to or a self-help book, either. Rather, as Sorendo reveals his personal, life-changing experience, his story evolves into a series of modern-day miracles and inspiring examples of determination, positivity, and generosity of spirit that will assure readers that they’re not alone.

My Journey to Hell and Back with Chronic Pain is wonderfully written in a down-to-earth style, and Sorendo is an adept and engaging storyteller. Vividly bringing his memories to life, his experiences become all the more familiar to his readers as he bares his soul openly, honestly, and with raw emotion. If Sorendo can make it to hell and back with chronic painâ??and find renewed purpose, joy, positivity, and hopeâ??so can others, whether in chronic pain or not.
