Books Info:

Persuasion of My Days free pdf Harvey Dorfman literally rose from a childhood sickbed to his place of world renown in the field of sports psychology. Here he recounts the early experiences that 'persuaded' his future years. Dorfman takes the reader along this journey to his initial experience as an educator. Writer/theologian Frederick Buechner calls the book, "moving, convincing, alive and true- these chapters are (as) authentic a picture of a boy's finding his way as any I know." This first of two volumes closes on a twenty-seven-year-old readying himself for a career that would take him from high school coaching to his current prominence in the world of professional sports.
