10 Time New York Times Bestselling Author Peter Golenbock on His 50-year Career

Lou Gehrig once said he was the luckiest man on the face of the earth. But I’m not sure that’s true. I am.””

— Peter Golenbock

ST. PETERSBURG, FL, UNITED STATES, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Peter Golenbock has been providing sports fans with some of the last five decades’ most popular and informative sports books.

Whether he’s covering the legacy of the Dallas Cowboys in COWBOYS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MY HEROES, chronicling the World of stock car racing & The Daytona 500 with AMERICAN ZOOM, collaborating with hockey legend Phil Esposito on THUNDER AND LIGHTNING, or cementing his place as the foremost baseball writer in the World with books like DYNASTY, BUMS, THE BRONX ZOO and BALLS, Peter Golenbock is one of the premier sports authorities on the planet.

He not only continues to enthrall and entertain readers with recent books like VALENTINE’S WAY and WHISPERS OF THE GODS but as a go-to baseball pundit and commentator, guesting on popular shows on networks like ESPN, SPORTS GRID, and beyond.

And he shows no sign of slowing down. Whether he’s collaborating with sports icons on their memoirs, maintaining his reputation as baseball’s go-to historian or playing regularly in competitive softball, Peter Golenbock continues to be a vital and important champion for the World of sports.

“When I was at Dartmouth college, I discovered I had a gift. I had the ability to interview athletes and then tell their stories using the written word. For example, Red Rolfe, our athletic director, had been the third baseman for the Yankees in the 1920s and 1940s, and he loved it when I would come into his office and talk with him about his days with the Yankees. He’d tell me about Joe DiMaggio and Joe McCarthy, and I’d be in heaven.

In 1972 I signed a contract with Prentice-Hall to write a book about the Yankees. I spent three years traveling the country interviewing those who played between 1949 and 1964. I interviewed Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Whitey Ford, and many more.

It has been 50 years since I signed that contract, and I am still writing books. Lou Gehrig once said he was the luckiest man on the face of the earth. But I’m not sure that’s true. I am.” – Peter Golenbock

MARILYN WASSMANN WRITES A LOVELY BOOK TO LEARN FROM

What the Wind Blew In

“What the Wind Blew In”

A treat for the young ones and young once!

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Artist and writer Marilyn B. Wassmann pens a remarkable book for children and alike! “What The Wind Blew In” is a delight for anybody who finds themselves flipping through this whimsical book of words and illustrations. Featuring six different stories brimming with values and lessons, this book is the perfect read for anyone of any age to ponder upon.

Grady Harp speaks highly of this book. He writes, “The stories are enhanced by terrific illustrations – images with which children can identify and the rhyming pattern (which in layout becomes more lyrical when an adult reads to the youngster) is musical. These stories are the work of a wise and sensitive author – a perfect gift for children at any time!”

Another review by Pearl A. on Amazon encourages parents to tuck their kids to sleep with this book. She says, “I love the simplicity of the stories here. They make me feel warm and fuzzy. This is such a great book for children especially if parents read them for a bedtime story-telling.”

Marilyn Wassmann is not a stranger to creating masterpieces. Coming from a family of creatives, she has finished four degrees—two in art history, one in studio art, and another in library science. She has also written other books alongside “What The Wind Blew In”. Aside from doing illustrations, Marilyn also loves to write poems.

A book equipped with lessons that cling to one’s heart, “What The Wind Blew In” is now available on Amazon and on Marilyn’s website https://marilynwassmann.com/.

Daphne Kwok: From quiet student to national advocate

Daphne Kwok

Asian Women Trailblazers

Using her voice to empower the Asian American Pacific Islander community

Never burn your bridges because you never know who you’re gonna be working with.”

— Daphne Kwok

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, USA, August 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — As a second generation Chinese American, Daphne Kwok was taught to listen to and respect elders and teachers. “‘Listen to’ governed my method of learning,” she says.
In college, she continued doing the “listen to” component of learning, struggling through courses where class participation was critical. Outside the classroom, though, as part of the Asian/Asian American student organization, Daphne started to find her voice. What she thought of as merely socializing turned out to be organizing! And she turned out to be quite a skilled leader—a student leader of color working with others to advance the needs of students of color.

After college, she sought out the AAPI community in Washington, D.C., resulting in an 11-year tenure as one of only two AAPI national civil rights leaders in the nation’s capital. Daphne became a de facto national leader, thrown into the national media spotlight with no public speaking training. But, she thought, if she didn’t speak up, who would speak up for the AAPI community? Rising to the challenge, she testified before federal agencies, addressed the national media, rallied the crowds, and appeared before the President of the United States.

Based on her experience, Daphne shares a key piece of advice: Focus on communication skills at an early age. “You really do need communication skills—written as well as verbal,” she says. “For people who are like me, shy and reserved, find your local Toastmasters group, take rhetoric classes, take debate classes. I didn’t do any of that growing up, but if I could do it all over again I would.”

One thing she would do the same way is cultivate a network of friends and mentors. “In times when you really need support, when the work is extremely challenging or perhaps it’s your personal life or family life, open up and talk to your friends,” she says. “During some of my most difficult times, my friends really were a tremendous support system, and to this day I’m so extremely grateful.”

And when you rise to a leadership role, be a mentor for others. Check in with them. “Especially during this very difficult COVID time, during the current atmosphere of this nation right now, especially for people of color, we have to stick together,” Daphne says. “We need to collaborate with African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indian/Alaskan Natives and the LGBTQ community. We all have to stick together.”

Another reason to keep your network close and maintain your relationships is that you never know when people will resurface in your life. When Daphne was nominated to serve on President Obama’s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, the person processing her paperwork was her former intern! “That appointment truly was the pinnacle of my career,” Daphne says. “It was a tremendous opportunity for me to bring the challenges of our community to the president, and to have the federal government respond to the needs of our community.”
Connect with Daphne Kwok on LinkedIn and read more of her story in the upcoming book Asian Women Trailblazers Who BossUp, a collection of inspiring interviews with Asian American women who have broken the mold, overcome obstacles, and have a wealth of advice to share.
