In the bestselling tradition of Ten Things I Wish Id Known......and The Right Words at the Right Time comes a collection of inspirational wisdom from beloved lacrosse coach, the late Diane Geppi-Aikens. Loyola College of Maryland Womens Lacrosse Coach Diane Geppi-Aikens would have been a remarkable role model simply as one of the nations top lacrosse coaches. But this single mother of four battled inoperable brain tumors for eight years. Partially paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair, Geppi-Aikens missed only one game as she coached her #1 ranked team into the semi-finals of the NCAAchampionships.In spite of the terrible tragedy threatening her life, she managed to get her players to consider her lucky. Now, in the wake of this courageous womans death comes an incredibly inspirational book. In 20 short chapters, Geppi-Aikenss unique and uplifting teachings live on through the memories of those she inspired most. H In Geppi-Aikenss final season, she and her players made memorable appearances on the Today show, Good Morning America, and CBS Evening News. She was also featured in Sports Illustrated, College Sports TV, and Lacrosse Magazine. H Books offering inspirational advice from high-profile women, such as Maria Shrivers Ten Things I Wish Id Known.... (Warner, 2000) and Marlo Thomass The Right Word at the Right Time (Atria, 4/02), are perennial bestsellers. H Diane Geppi-Aikens won the 2003 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Inspiration Award. The Intercollegiate Womens Lacrosse Association has renamed their Lifetime Achievement Award in her honor. H Chip Silverman is the author of five books, including Diner Guys (Carroll, 1989) and The Block (Scribe, 1994), which served as the basis for Barry Levinsons famous films, including the classic Diner.
