A Navy SEAL who first overcame a crippling childhood condition and then a devastating training accident offers his own experiences as lessons in defeating adversity. Patrick Bisher’s career as a Navy SEAL should have ended after a parachuting accident nearly crippled him. But overcoming adversity, even an injury as serious as a broken hip, was nothing new for him. He’d spent a portion of his childhood in leg braces. Doctors told him he’d never walk again thanks to a degenerative hip condition. He wasn’t about to give up then, any more than he was in the wake of that parachute training accident. Instead, he went on to serve in combat as a member of SEAL Team Seven, seeing action in Iraq and ultimately winning the Army Commendations Medal, among other awards. Now Patrick wants to take the lessons he learned on and off the battlefield and apply them to everyday life. He offers inspiration to all who’ve faced the kind of adversity he has. In chapters drawn directly from his own experience, he sketches a heart-wrenching tale of salvaging lifelong victories out of crushing defeats, and hope out of heartache. From being branded a “cripple” to successfully negotiating BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition/SEALS) training, from agonizing pain to heroic achievement, from devastating loss to finding his faith, Patrick’s story is one of discovering ways to do everything he possibly can, instead of making excuses for what he can’t. An American hero who never surrendered is now sharing his lessons with those fighting their own battles to emerge from their dark places into the light and lead a better, more productive life.

In the spring of 1974, Second Lieutenant Hiroo Onoda of the Japanese army made world headlines when he emerged from the Philippine jungle after a thirty-year ordeal. Hunted in turn by American troops, the Philippine police, hostile islanders, and successive Japanese search parties, Onoda had skillfully outmaneuvered all his pursuers, convinced that World War II was still being fought and that one day his fellow soldiers would return victorious. This account of those years is an epic tale of the will to survive that offers a rare glimpse of man's invincible spirit, resourcefulness, and ingenuity. A hero to his people, Onoda wrote down his experiences soon after his return to civilization. This book was translated into English the following year and has enjoyed an approving audience ever since.

No Surrender: Building a Progressive Agenda for Iowa with the Five Securities by Jack Hatch “In an era of endless social media carping, the notion of why public service matters may seem quaint or even naïve to some. This book is about why, for progressive Democrats, nothing could be further from the truth. Dreaming of ways to improve the human condition for work-a-day Americans and their families is absolutely essential to our purpose and our survival as a political organization. The stakes are always the highest possible ones: the fate of our individual communities and the country we love. And the enemy is always the same: a status quo that tells us ‘not you,’ ‘not yet,’ ‘not that way,’ and ‘not now.’” “Jack Hatch provides a thought-provoking and challenging look into Iowa's future. His is a call for progressive action. He pulls no punches in calling for a new direction and approach for the Democratic Party if its leaders are to become Iowa’s leaders. A “must read” for anyone considering a run for higher office.” - Former Governor of Iowa Tom Vilsack “This book is highly revealing. It identifies, without concern of how it affects the feelings of those in power, absolute realities of why Democrats fall short of election goals during each cycle. The narrative represents a path by which the party can return to its historic role of being “the voice of the people.” And, unlike most, this book is definitive in laying out a plan for success. Jack Hatch has provided a map of the path we must follow. To ignore his challenge to become Progressives will only lead to party oblivion.” - Senator Dennis Black, Retired “I am impressed. Without resorting to a rant, Jack Hatch scolds Iowa Democrat leadership for their lack of courage in pressing for bold liberal goals and for surrendering their advocacy for the “melting middle class.” To his credit, Hatch does not exclude himself from past errors. The Five Security agenda he presents as his bold progressive vision for what Iowa can become is done so with compelling detailed specifics as to mission, process and structure. In fact, were his vision to come to be adopted and funded, I would move back to Iowa.” - Dr. Elliot Kline, PH.D Dean and Professor Retired
