Shaunie's Way
In this indispensible book for busy moms and dads, Shaunie O’Neal shares her parenting methods and time-tested wisdom for raising children with old-school values in a new-school world.

Ex-wife of NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal and executive producer of VH1’s hit show Basketball Wives, Shaunie O’Neal considers her biggest accomplishment to be raising five well-behaved, well-adjusted children in an age of entitlement and a seeming lack of discipline and rules. Where Amy Chua’s Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother left off, Shaunie’s Way picks up. Her rules include: Give Children Names That Matter, Don’t Be a “Yes Mom,” and All Children Must Attend a Weekly Family Dinner (No Cell Phones Allowed!). With a brood of children ages eight through eighteen, Shaunie O’Neal has the know-how and experience it takes to successfully raise kids with discipline, order, and a strong sense of family.

Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, juggling parenthood with a career, or thinking about starting a family, Shaunie’s Way shows you how to raise happy, balanced, well-mannered children—and keep yourself happy in the process.

Glory, Glory

The moment has never been better for the UGA Bulldogs as they enter the 2008 season ranked #1 by many in preseason polls. But to find out how the Bulldogs have come to be on the cusp of such success, you have to examine the rich history and incredible depth of the Georgia football program—from the wealth of alums who have gone on to become NFL stars, to the bright potential of two current players with their eyes on the Heisman Trophy; from the legendary, century-old rivalries, to the inspirational Head Coach Mark Richt, who is admired as much for how he lives his life off the field as for what his teams have done on it.

Here, award-winning journalist Mark Schlabach tells the story of the Bulldogs program through the eyes of Georgia's players, coaches, and opponents, through the hearts of the school's rabid fans, and through the recollections of so many of the characters who helped make Georgia football one of the greatest traditions in all of American sports. Like the nationally bestselling Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer and the acclaimed Rose Bowl Dreams, Glory, Glory provides an intimate and poignant look at the personalities and history of this compelling program.
