Today a multinational video game developer, Sega was the first to break Nintendo’s grip on the gaming industry, expanding from primarily an arcade game company to become the dominant game console manufacturer in North America. A major part of that success came from the hard work and innovation of its subsidiary, Sega of America, who in a little more than a decade wrested the majority market share from Nintendo and revolutionized how games were made. Drawing on interviews with nearly 100 Sega alumni, this book traces the development of the company, revealing previously undocumented areas of game-making history, including Sega’s relationship with Tonka, the creation of its internal studios, and major breakthroughs like the Sega Channel and HEAT Network. More than 40 of the company’s most influential games are explored in detail.

You cannot discover new oceans unless you have courage to lose sight of the shore. As long as you are comfortable with where you are, God cannot take you to the next level. One of the greatest misfortunes of life is to grow old without growing up. When a person's age does not match up with their maturity level, it spells disaster for any individual. The most painful truth about life is that it does not wait for you to grow up before it can throw challenges at you. The challenges of life will not sympathize with our failure to grow.

The Next Level is the first training guide dedicated to the individual athlete in the sport of competition paintball. In the couse of the last ten years, competition paintball has gone from playing in the woods (running and crawling through the bushes while wearing camoflage) to being played in venues like the Toronto Skydome (running diving, sliding and hiding behind air filled, vinyl bunkers while wearing loud clothing spoecifically designed for paintball). The game itself is getting faster and more exciting every year. Due to the elevation in speed and aggresiveness in the game, there are greater physical demands being placed on the athletes. Competition paintball is no longer for the out of shape individual. The Next Level is a training guide to help increase the overall athleticism of the competition player. In the course of a game, players might have to: sprint repeatedly over short distances, power slide, dive, make very quick abrupt movements (dodging flying paintballs), hold awkward positions (for minutes at a time), and to be able to think and react rapidly. To address all of the physical and mental demands of the game, The Next Level, with the use of clear diagrams and detailed descriptions, shows athletes how to increase their abilities in the following: flexibility, explosiveness, running speed, reaction speed, hand and eye coordination, agility, and game related vision. All of the exercises and techniques have been specifically selected, for the physical and mental demands of competition paintball. Last but definitely not least, the athletes aspire to the perfect performance, also known as, "performing in the zone." The Next Level addresses the state of being, "in the zone," and theories on how to acheive it.

PRAISE FOR NEXT LEVEL SALES COACHING "Steve Johnson and Matthew Hawk have created the most comprehensive, actionable, step-by-step guide for successful sales management I've seen in 25 years as a corporate training and development professional. Creating sales teams that stay, sell, and succeed is a lesson in successful sales leadership that is packed with case studies, scripts, planning tools, and resources that will be invaluable resources to sales managers both new and experienced." —Corey Rewis, Learning & Development Executive, Fortune Top 100 Most Profitable Company, Fortune 100 Best Place to Work® Company "Management is dead. Ask any professional or salesperson if they want to be managed, and they'll tell you, 'I'm good.' Professionals want to grow and develop. They want someone to work with them on an individual basis to help them identify their gaps and build a plan to sharpen skills and close those gaps. That's what Steve Johnson is an expert at and what this book will help managers do at a high level. Managers can use this book to evolve their skills and migrate from being managers to becoming coaches. The 'coaching gap' is the biggest opportunity for businesses today. If managers have not yet developed coaching skills, this book will have an enormous return for those that buy it, read it, and put it to use. Our team can attest to this from firsthand experience." —David Patchen, Senior Vice President, Education and Practice Management, Raymond James Private Client Group "I loved this book as it covered all the sales processes and coaching strategies that helped us drive strong, double-digit growth over the last ten years.

This is a must-read and an excellent reference for those who lead—or aspire to lead—sales teams." —Dario F. Priolo, Former Executive Vice President, Miller Heiman Group

When it comes to video game design, the importance of setting and ambience cannot be overstated. Exploration is fundamental to the medium, and it is vital that virtual locations be as compelling, dynamic, and visually engaging as possible. Every location must reflect the themes of the game and help create the tone of the story and gameplay, while also subtly directing and reacting to the player's actions. In Next Level: Game Design, some of the best concept artists in the industry showcase fantastical locations designed for video games across genres. Many of the featured artists have worked on critically acclaimed games, while others present tantalizing visions of game worlds yet to be realized. All provide readers with inspiration for approaching their own interactive worlds, and serve as reminders that gaming is a medium whose potential we have only just begun to explore.
