Tracy says: "I was only on chapter four when I began recommending people read this book. Not just recommending, I was gushing! You are going to love this book if you ever spent a moment as a child traipsing across pastures, collecting specimens for your own naturalist collection. You are going to love this book if you have an affinity for Lawrence and the university. You are going to love this book if you appreciate Kansas history, in general, and want to add to your arsenal of information. Starting with the prologue, I was in love with this book."
Linzi is reading The P.E.A.C.E. Process: Taking the Crazy Out of Youth Sports manuscript by former coach and first-time author Rick Keltner.
Linzi says: "This manuscript has great insight into what it means to be a part of youth sports activities, as well as step-by-step advice about how to make the activity better for everyone involved. Coming from the perspective of a 42-year career youth sports coach, there are humorous and outrageous anecdotes about taking youth sports (at least a little) too seriously and how we can avoid those situations in the future. Keltner has a clear and captivating ability to speak to the parents, the players, and the coaches about what it means to truly enjoy what youth sports have to offer when we approach them with a healthy attitude, mature communication, and a good sense of FUN!
