Publisher's Summary

Baseball's all-time Iron Man, Cal Ripken, Jr., retired from baseball in 2001 after breaking countless records, including Lou Gehrig's record for consecutive games played. Ripken is admired by thousands of fans not only for his relentless perseverance, but also for his unparalleled integrity. Now, in a stirring audiobook that draws on his exhilarating career as well as the wisdom of his legendary father, Ripken shares rousing advice centered around his proven Eight Elements of Perseverance. A few are:

  • The Right Values: hard work, excellence, honesty, and integrity
  • Love What You Do: tips for discovering where your true passion lies
  • Preparation: ways to continually envision your next position and prepare for it as if it were already yours
  • Trusting Relationships: how to build them in even the most turbulent environments.

    From his numerous public-speaking engagements each year to his weekly "Ask Cal" column for the Baltimore Sun, Cal Ripkin, Jr., is a sought-after advisor to fans from all walks of life. Get in the Game gives all of us access to legendary advice from a legendary achiever.
