"From the authors of the #1 New York Times best-selling Half the Sky, a unique and essential narrative about making a difference in the world--a roadmap to becoming a conscientious global citizen. Equal in urgency and compassion to Half the Sky, this galvanizing new book from the acclaimed husband and wife team is even more ambitious in scale: nothing less than a deep examination of people who are making the world a better place, and the myriad ways we can support them, whether with a donation of five dollars or five million, an inkling to help or a useful skill to deploy. With scrupulous research and on-the-ground reporting, the authors assay the art and science of giving--determining the current most successful local and global aid initiatives (on issues from education to inner-city violence to disease prevention), evaluating the efficiency and impact of specific approaches and charities, as well as fundraising. Most compellingly, perhaps, they show us how particular people have made a difference, and offer practical advice on how best each of us can give and what we can personally derive from doing so"--

In this inspirational yet practical book, the man Parade called “the most important coach in America,” subject of the national bestseller Season of Life, Joe Ehrmann, describes his coaching philosophy and explains how sports can transform lives at every level of play, from the earliest years to professional sports. Coaches have a tremendous platform, says Joe Ehrmann, a former Syracuse University All-American and NFL star. Perhaps second only to parents, coaches can impact young people as no one else can. But most coaches fail to do the teaching, mentoring, even life-saving intervention that their platform provides. Too many are transactional coaches; they focus solely on winning and meeting their personal needs. Some coaches, however, use their platform. They teach the Xs and Os, but also teach the Ys of life. They help young people grow into responsible adults; they leave a lasting legacy. These are the transformational coaches. These coaches change lives, and they also change society by helping to develop healthy men and women. InSideOut Coaching explains how to become a transformational coach. Coaches first have to “go inside” and articulate their reasons for coaching. Only those who have taken the InSideOut journey can become transformational. Joe Ehrmann provides examples of coaches in his life who took this journey and taught him how to find something bigger than himself in sports.He describes his own InSideOut experience, starting with the death of his beloved brother, which helped him understand how sports could transcend the playing field. He gives coaches the information and the tools they need to become transformational. Joe Ehrmann has taken his message about the extraordinary power of sports all over the country. It has been warmly endorsed by NFL head coaches, athletic directors at major universities, high school head coaches, even business groups and community organizations. Now any parent-coach or school or community coach can read Ehrmann’s message and learn how to make sports a life-changing experience.

Praise for Advancing Social Justice "An important book that challenges social justice educators to continually manifest our core values and intentions in our practice—to authentically engage others with humility and compassion knowing we have memberships in both privileged and marginalized groups and the dynamics of oppression we confront today may be ones we unconsciously participate in tomorrow." —Kathy Obear, founding faculty, Social Justice Training Institute "In a field where social justice and critical social theory are all too often absent from the discussion, this bold, fresh text offers critical insights and guidance to those grappling with the difficulties of truly engaging in democratic education. Ultimately it reminds us that social justice is not a convenient add-on to student learning. Rather, it is the essence of education." — Nolan L. Cabrera, assistant professor, Center for the Study of Higher Education, Education Policy Studies & Practice, College of Education, University of Arizona "With a bit of humility and a huge dose of reality, Davis and Harrison provide the reader with a chance to revisit, rethink, and regroup around the topic of social justice and social justice education. They make the topic more accessible for many to examine and explore without rushing to political correctness." — Jill Ellen Carnaghi, associate vice chancellor for students, dean of campus life, Washington University in St. Louis
