Summary

The murder case of chef Cynthia Albrecht that shocked the Indy 500 racing world—as seen on Investigation Discovery’s True Conviction.   Cynthia Albrecht, the executive chef of the Penske-Marlboro racing team and darling of the IndyCar circuit, went missing on October 25, 1992—the night before her divorce from Michael Albrecht became final. Drivers and racing crews from across the country converged on “The Brickyard,” site of the Indianapolis 500, to help search for her.   As the head mechanic for the Dick Simon racing team, known as “Crabby” across the race circuit, Michael had a reputation for bullying and abuse. He’d immediately become a suspect in Cynthia’s disappearance. But with a strong alibi, there was nothing authorities could do when he decided to take a vacation to Florida and skip a scheduled polygraph test and the search for his estranged wife.   Nor could law enforcement charge him when Cynthia’s body was found a few weeks later in northern Indiana—minus her head. The case went cold for six years until a newly elected  prosecutor allowed his deputies to charge Michael Albrecht with murder. But would they be able to prove his guilt?   This riveting legal thriller is a finalist in the True Crime category of the Best Book Awards sponsored by American Book Fest. Written by one of the prosecutors, Larry Sells, and journalist Margie Porter, it runs at full throttle and will leave you on the edge of your seat right up to the checkered flag at the final verdict.

    The cage door clangs shut. The lock slides into place. The voice in my head drowns out everything else. What the hell is wrong with me?Follow the journey of Mark Tullius, former cage fighter and boxer turned author and stay-at-home dad as he puts his love of fighting and his sociology degree to use. What began as a personal exploration to unlock his reasons for continuing to train and pursue a fight career evolved into an in-depth sociological study of why competing in mixed martial arts (MMA) appeals to fighters. Why do these men and women subject themselves to the endless hours of grueling training required for the full-contact sport? In MMA a fighter's goal is to punch, kick, and choke an opponent into submission, and if there is blood and injury along the way, so be it. What compels these individuals to develop the necessary strength, endurance, discipline, and skill despite the risks involved?Instead of interviewing a handful of elite fighters, Mark traveled to every corner of the country, looking to train at different gyms and find fighters interested in showing the world who they are and why they fight. He finished the project after visiting 100 gyms and interviewing 340 fighters.Although it wasn't necessary, Tullius trained with the fighters and soon came to realize how valuable that time was, cultivating mental strength by surrounding himself with positive and inspiring individuals. It encouraged him to continue his project when he still had doubts about seeing it to its completion. Finally, Tullius believed that his willingness to get on the mat and demonstrate his trust in the fighters encouraged them to trust him and open up to a stranger about their fears and mistakes, dreams and accomplishments.

    The life and career of Nicklas Lidstrom almost reads like a real-life hockey fairy tale. Drafted by the Detroit Red Wings as a nineteen-year-old defenseman out of his native Sweden, Lidstrom spent the next two decades manning the Motor City blueline. During those years he became a Hockeytown legend, amassing a mind-boggling collection of accomplishments and accolades: four Stanley Cups, seven Norris Trophies as the NHL's best defenseman, a Conn Smythe Trophy, twelve All-Star selections, and gold medals in both the Olympics and World Championships. 
    Off the ice, life appears equally idyllic: Lidstrom is uniformly respected and admired by opponents, observers, and teammates alike, and he and his wife of more than twenty years have four boys who split their time between Sweden and their adopted homeland. 
    Perhaps only one question remains unanswered about the man teammates referred to as the Perfect Human: exactly how did he do it? 
    In Nicklas Lidstrom: The Pursuit of Perfection, the Hall of Fame defenseman and a who's-who of hockey luminaries investigate and reveal precisely how he made dominating the game he loves appear so effortless.

    Running offers much more than road racing! 
    After a decade of writing about running, sports columnist Susan Lacke found herself in a serious running rut. The runners around her seemed to be thriving, setting goals, and having fun, but her own interest in running was lackluster. 
    Seeking to reengage with the sport she once loved, Lacke spent a year exploring running in its many shapes and forms, taking on running challenges that scared her, pushed her, and downright embarrassed her. From races with giant cheese wheels to a regional wife-carrying competition, a naked 5K to climbing the dark stairwells of the Empire State Building, Lacke's brave forays and misadventures are chronicled in wondrous and funny stories. 
    Running Outside the Comfort Zone uncovers the brash, bold, and very human sides of running, and along the way Susan rekindles her own crush on America's favorite all-comers sport.

    From Here to There is a book about the path to mastery.  
    How do you move from one place to another without the inevitable anxiety, stress, confusion, and misdirection that we’ve all had to face? This book lays out a big-picture perspective on the ways we can think about these periods in life, that best set us up for success, and best prepare us to tackle the inherent obstacles any journey possesses. From Commitment, to Learning, to Discernment, to Systems, to Momentum, and more, Thane works through the mental models that have empowered him to think clearly and accurately about this time in life.  
    For those people who care less about the idea and more about the “how to”, this book has you covered. For each broad idea, Thane dives into the smaller specifics on what these concepts look like in application. With lists, tips, and strategies, this book will leave you with a full arsenal of tools to situationally apply to anything life may throw your way.  
    Whether you’re a hard-charger, or a deep-thinker, or a loyal employee, this book will be useful for you. It’s engaging, inspiring, but more importantly it’s grounding. This book is relatable because life is a struggle, and the life experiences Thane shares speak to the reality that, more times than not, we will fail. But, in failing there’s learning. And in learning there’s growth.  
    "Come with me on this journey of growth, From Here to There."
