The Pep Talk
Dr. Elko's New Book! The Pep Talk: A Football Story about the Business of Winning
(Paperback Edition) by Dr. Kevin Elko and Robert Shook
The Pep Talk is a sports story with solid business applications about an underdog football team defeating a powerhouse opponent. Typically, a novelette of this type peaks at the end of the game, but it's in the pep talk where the real story begins. A stranger convinces the coach of a team with a 24-game losing streak to allow him to give a pep talk before they go up against a winning team. The underdog team is victorious because of the influence of this stranger.
The talk the stranger gave has a profound affect on the coach and three of his Senior players throughout their lives as each goes on to successful careers outside of football. The pep talk and the actual game are intriguing, but the real story begins 29 years later when the coach, suffering from a brain tumor, discovers the stranger had prophesized specific events that occurred in the ensuing game. Is there a logical explanation? Is there a spiritual explanation? The answers to these questions capture the reader's attention to the very end.
Although this story uses a sports related theme, it applies directly to life and the valuable lessons we all can learn. This book will help you think about your approach to life and what's really important. The actual information the stranger uses in his pep talk comes directly from real life speaking engagements Dr. Elko has done for Professional and Major College Football Programs as well as Corporate Clients. Sit back and enjoy the story...and you won't be able to put this book down!
