Justin Doherty (Assistant AD for Communications)

John Chadima, Associate Athletic Director

"Always By My Side" by Jim Nantz
(This book really touched home with me in that it spoke about the tough times that Jim and his family are having with their father (I lost my father to cancer a little over a year ago), and his struggle with Alzheimer's disease. It combines that story with the life story of Jim Nantz, his rise in the broadcasting profession, and stories along the way, including a very tight relationship with his father figure, President George Bush (41)

"No Bed of Roses” by Chris Kennedy
(Brought back memories of that memorable 1993 football season in which the Badgers qualified for the Rose Bowl for the first time in 31 years, and beat UCLA in the January 1, 1994 game)

Joe Alfano, Internet Services Coordinator

"Storm Front" by Jim Butcher
(First in a series of fantasy/detective novels I am re-reading)

"World War Z" by Max Brooks
(An alternate history zombie novel written by Mel Brooks' son)

"The Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand
(A tremendous book for anyone who values creative thinking and the struggles associated with living in a mindless status quo society)

Diane Nordstrom, Athletic Communications

“The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom” by Slavomir Rawicz
(A great recommendation from assistant volleyball coach Colleen Bayer! The story of a Polish man who is sent to a Soviet labor camp in Siberia during the early years of WWII and his escape by walking to India.)

Lisa Stone, Women’s Basketball Head Coach

"Sail" by James Patterson
(Excellent mystery novel, and one of my favorites written by James Patterson)

"Standing Tall:  A Memoir of Tragedy and Triumph" by C. Vivian Stringer

“The Boys of Winter: The Untold Story of a Coach, a Dream, and the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team” by Wayne Coffey.

“The Last Train North by Clifton L. Taulbert
(Good history lesson for both black and white America)

Pete Waite, Volleyball Head Coach

“Kiss of the Bees” by J.A. Jance
(It's a kidnapping thriller based on an Indian reservation, it reminded me a lot of Silence of the Lambs. It was really good if you like scary psychopaths)

“Gender and competition, how men and women approach work and play differently” by Kathy DeBoer
(It does a great job describing how men prefer to look at the world as a hierarchy and women see it as a social web. This is a very good book that really helps people understand how men and women react in competitive situations)
