This is not simply the memoir of a cancer survivor. Nor is it just the memoir of a respected senator. This is an unprecedented glimpse into a man who is both. It is inspiration for people of all political persuasions; of how to persevere and succeed---despite what the doctors may say, despite what the tests might show. In early 2004, Senator Specter was in the midst of a grueling primary race, facing significant opposition from the right as he worked to win his party's nomination to run for reelection for his Pennsylvania senate seat. It would be the most difficult election in his quarter-century career in the Senate. Following on its heels were two more challenges---the general-election race and opposition to his elevation as Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, his lifelong ambition. He overcame all three challenges in time for his seventy-fifth birthday. But exhaustion and fatigue---initially thought to be the aftereffects of months of vigorous campaigning---were found to be far more serious. After a series of tests and consultation with several doctors, Specter was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease, Stage IVB, the most advanced stage. He had received death sentences before and lived to tell about it. To Senator Specter, this diagnosis was another challenge. After all, he still had a job to do. His cancer treatments came as he reached the height of his power---surrounded by political storms that polarized Washington and threatened to shut the Senate down. His leadership positions made it his job to manage Supreme Court nominations and public- health appropriations as he faced his own illness. He had fought on public-health issues for years, but now it added potency to the message that the messenger was ailing himself. The phrase "Never give in" became Specter's mantra, invoking the famous words from Churchill in his battle with cancer. This moving book describes the treatment the Senator received and offers his advice on how to handle the side effects (both visible and private), hair loss, and of course, maintain a nearly daily squash regimen. So, how does one move forward when faced with mortality? It's simple. Work.

A great statesmen, a masterful historian whose writings won him the Nobel Prize for literature and a war-time leader with few peers, Sir Winston Churchill is remembered perhaps most clearly today for the sheer power of his oratory: the speeches that rallied a nation in its darkest hour and steeled that nation for victory against the might of the Fascist powers. Never Give In! celebrates this oratory by gathering together Churchill's most powerful speeches from throughout his public career. Carefully selected by his grandson, this collection includes all his best known speeches - from his great war-time broadcasts to the "Iron Curtain" speech that heralded the start of the Cold War - and many lesser known but inspirational pieces. In a single volume Never Give In! provides a powerful testimony to one of the great public figures of the 20th century.

According to Henry Kissinger, "Our age finds it difficult to come to grips with Churchill. The political leaders with whom we are familiar generally aspire to be superstars rather than heroes. The distinction is crucial. Superstars strive for approbation; heroes walk alone. Superstars crave consensus; heroes define themselves by the judgment of a future they see it as their task to bring about. Superstars seek success in a technique for eliciting support; heroes pursue success as the outgrowth of their inner values." Winston Churchill was a hero. In this look at his leadership in action we see what it was that enabled him to do what few others have ever accomplished in the long annals of history: stand for principle and prevail.

James Harrison is a no-nonsense man whose powerful will was born out of necessity back in Akron, Ohio where he was repeatedly forced to overcome obstacles that in some respects makes his swerving Super Bowl sprint pale in comparison. His riveting story about overcoming the underpinnings of poverty, issues with the law that almost ruined him before he emerged from high school, a two-year-fight to gain college eligibility and finally never giving up despite being cut four times by NFL teams before he earned a job as a special team player. He used that opportunity and a relentless work ethic to become the game's most dominant player, a two-time Pro Bowler and the reigning Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year. Never Give In, Never Give Up, will not only document through his eyes for the first time his remarkable effort in the 2009 Super Bowl and other exploits on the field that helped him earn the largest contract ever issued to a linebacker, but it will transcend sports with the gripping story of how he overcame daunting odds to get there. He will tell the humorous story of his record setting Super Bowl run, discuss candidly his views on racism and many of his highly publicized failings in life. He'll once and for all discuss his reasoning for refusing to join his teammates in a visit to the White House with President Obama, he'll lay out how he thinks the NFL can come to a new agreement on a collective bargaining agreement with players, and a wide assortment of other insights into the life and times of James Harrison. Sometimes it's good. Sometimes it's bad. In James Harrison's life, there is no in between to this hard edge that frames his psyche. What's certain is that his lifetime of tremendous highs and lows offers an inspirational story filled with extreme adversity and the hard work it took to achieve overwhelming redemption.
