Lessons on leadership and team building from Ohio State´s head football coach, drawing heavily on the 2014 season and his team´s remarkable run to the championship in the face of adversity. Since he took over at Bowling Green 14 years ago, Urban Frank Meyer III has established himself as one of the elite coaches in the annals of college football. With three national championships and a record of 142-26, he has achieved remarkable results with many teams. But it is Meyer´s recent work at The Ohio State University that has elevated him into the realm of such iconic coaching names as Paul (Bear) Bryant, Knute Rockne, and OSU´s own Woody Hayes. Never was that work more successful than in the 2014 season, which ended with Meyer´s Buckeyes capturing the inaugural College Football Playoff Championship with a 42-20 victory over Oregon. That the triumph came with a third-string quarterback at the helm - and after OSU had suffered a brutal early season loss and endured the tragic loss of a teammate - only made the achievement that much more extraordinary. How did Ohio State, a school many thought did not even deserve to be in the playoffs, end up at the summit of college football? In Above the Line, Urban Meyer answers this question and many more. Pulling back the curtain on the high-profile, high-pressure world he operates in, he offers listeners a groundbreaking game plan for creating a culture of success that engages and inspires the people around them - the very game plan he followed every day in the Buckeyes´ historic 2014 season. A student of psychology long before he became a coach, Meyer believes that trust is the bedrock of great achievements and healthy relationships and explains how to build it, step by step - whether in a team, a family, or a Fortune 500 company. 1.

This is a present-day story with historical roots in the gold and silver found in the mountains and high deserts of the old west. Greta Sadler, an attractive woman in her early thirties, returns home to Reno, Nevada after ten adventuresome years on the east coast. On the way home, she encounters Alex Mackenzie, a brainy but rugged, geology professor at the University of Nevada, Reno. They become living-together lovers against her father?s wishes. Greta is the only remaining child of the President of the Sadler Corporation, a 90-year old family company that is an icon in northern Nevada. The professor?s younger brother, Quid, shows up penniless and unexpectedly after years in the U.S. Navy and, recently, some time in jail. He finds a bowling alley job in Reno, learns to play blackjack, and eventually meets a wizened 5thgeneration gold prospector, Frank Adams, who believes he is close to locating the legendary Lost Pants Mine first reported in an 1879 San Francisco newspaper story. That story triggered forty years of searching for the mine by many people, but it remained lost. A hundred years later Alex, Frank and Quid team up to complete the search. Meanwhile, Greta and Alex?s separate stories become more and more interwoven as external events pull each of them into difficult, life-altering decisions and some unexpected consequences. Love, money, ambitions, and family frictions intersect with a desire they each have to prove themselves to themselves and others as they traverse their thirties with nagging, unanswered questions flickering in their heads.
