              A decorated fighter pilot and PGA professional tells the story of his life and service--to both his nation and others--in this remarkable memoir that is a stirring record of faith, patriotism, family, philanthropy, and golf.What does it mean to be a patriot? For Oklahoma native D...an Rooney, it is someone who not only puts his life on the line for country, but who opens his heart and mind and seeks to build a life that embodies the purest and most concentrated essence of himself. For many, Rooney is the model of a patriot: as an Air Force pilot who deployed to Iraq, serving three tours of duty; as a professional golfer who established a nonprofit foundation awarding thousands of scholarships to the children of fallen and disabled veterans; as the father of five daughters; as a man of faith, whose copilot, both in the skies and on the ground, has always been God. A Patriot's Calling is his autobiographical journey through some of the most character-defining moments of his awe-inducing life and career. On my third tour of duty in Iraq as F -16 fighter pilot, I felt a powerful calling from God to share the miraculous fusion of people and experiences uniquely placed along my journey. During my reflection, I began to understand how the forces of synchronicity had shaped my life. Synchronicity, or, as I like to call it, 'chance with a purpose, ' is all around us. These encounters with God's messengers are the sign-posts along the road of life guiding us toward our essence. A Patriot's Calling illuminates Rooney's true essence--and offers guidance and inspiration for us all.

              Super Broncos: From Elway to Tebow to Manning (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              After a year chronicling the Denver Broncos's record-breaking and ultimately heart-breaking 2013 season, Woody Paige and Mike Klis are releasing a new book focusing on that season, the players involved, and the Broncos' history and future. The Super Broncos: From Elway to Tebow t...o Manning, is the definitive account of the 2013 season when the Broncos were the wildest west offensive show in NFL history, writes Jim Nantz, the NFL sportscaster, in the book's foreword. Paige, an ESPN regular, and Klis, a long-time Denver sportswriter, celebrate the personal records and team victories, but don't pull punches about the defeats - particularly the disastrous Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks. Of perhaps greatest interest to Broncos fans and die-hard football fans everywhere, The Super Broncos is filled with entertaining and revealing anecdotes about three of the most celebrated quarterbacks in the history of the game - John Elway, Tim Tebow and of course, Peyton Manning. Watching Peyton and the Broncos light up the NFL with an historic season, yet seeing it end in disappointment and heartache in New York, reminded me of how far the Broncos have come. And I've been with them through most of it, says Paige. The book's chapters take fans through the Broncos' colorful history: the team's birth in the AFL; the Orange Crush and the infamous revolt against coach John Ralston; the team's first Super Bowl appearance; the rise to one of the NFL's elite franchises with John Elway and Coach Dan Reeves; Tebowmania; Peyton Manning and his rivalry with Tom Brady; and a game-by-game account of the historic 2013 Broncos season which saw Manning throwing a record 55 touchdowns, and even saw the Broncos set the longest field goal in NFL history. Finally, there's a colorful post-mortem on the Super Bowl defeat: Mike, sorry man. That's what Mike Klis writes that Peyton Manning said to him after the Super Bowl loss. For many Broncos fans, that personal account sums up the season. But where

              Ken Venturi was a promising young golfer from California with numerous amateur titles when he took of four-stroke lead into the final day of the 1956 Masters. Venturi's three-day ride had riveted the golf world because no amateur had ever won this prestigious event. Venturi, howe...ver, collapsed, finishing one stroke behind the winner. The press labeled him a choke--a moniker that stuck. Just when it looked as though a once promising career would be wasted, something amazing happened: Ken Venturi won the 1964 U.S. Open, stunning the golfing establishment and becoming the big story of the 1964 season Sadly, Venturi's comeback was short lived. He suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome, which ended his playing career and sent him into a career in which he would thrive: broadcasting. Venturi joined CBS and broadcast golf for 34 years--the longest television career in golf history--coming to be known as the Walter Cronkite of the game. Getting Up & Down is Ken Venturi's story in his own words. It includes an honest and compelling recap of his life and incisive and searing commentary on the game he loves and those who play it, including sections on his longtime friendships with giants such as Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson, and Gene Sarazen--and his frosty relationship with Arnold Palmer.
