What you are about to read may well be the most enjoyable, informative and inspirational book you’ll read this year; if not for many years. It’s a story that takes place in a seemingly simpler time…“a lifetime ago;” and yet is a story that is timeless in its message. At a time in which America seems to be hopelessly divided, increasingly coarse, crude and mean-spirited, this is a uniquely All-American story about an All-American kid who was a product of an All-American city. This All-American kid was surrounded by other All-American kids, and influenced by All-American teachers, coaches, business people, steel workers and family members…of all backgrounds, cultures and races. I believe it to be a story that if truly understood has the answers for a divided, bewildered and beleaguered America.

Along the way you’ll meet not only the “star” of the story but also an unforgettable cast of characters. You’ll never know what J.B. might say next (…and even if you do, you may not understand it)! You’ll learn how grandmothers cheat at cards and get away with it. You’ll get a glimpse of the sacrifices made by parents, factory workers, street cleaners and many others…who collectively make our lives better. You’ll be encouraged to know that hard work and diligence do in fact “pay off.”

This story is really a combination of three of my favorite sports movies: The Sandlot that brought the hijinks of urban kids to the screen; the pathos of how a unique coach and special players made Hoosiers a modern retelling of David and Goliath; and how the commitment, character and faith of individual Olympians made Chariots of Fire the Academy Award winner for film of the year. You’ll laugh out loud at kids being kids; you’ll cheer the mighty Middies overcoming all comers; you’ll be moved to renew your own commitment to character and faith development.

Most of all you’ll get to know the life of one of the most exceptional people I’ve ever had the privilege to know. Yes, you’ll get an inside look at one of only three men who have won a high school state championship; the NCAA championship; Olympic Gold and the NBA championship. Yes, you’ll get plenty of basketball including all the records set and held by the author of this book, but more importantly you’ll learn how all that came about. What started as “Middie Magic” prepared the way for “Mind Magic” and a revolutionary learning system that has the potential to change education forever. Most important to me and to the author, you’ll read the story of the author’s coming to a personal faith in Jesus and how that changed his and many other lives forever.

So make sure you sit back in a comfy chair, because when you start to read this book, you’ll not soon put it down. May the magic begin…
