The Education of a Lifetime is a compelling memoir by former Ole Miss Chancellor Robert Khayat. Khayat speaks about his childhood days in Moss Point, Mississippi, the state´s segregationist policies that prevented his SEC-champion baseball team from playing in the College World Series, and the sadness of experiencing his father´s arrest and guilty plea. These seemingly disparate events worked to prepare him to battle the vestiges of racial strife that continued to haunt the university´s culture as he accepted the honor of becoming the university´s 15th chancellor. Khayat´s story gives listeners a behind-the-scenes look at how a university moved from mediocrity to excellence. We relive, along with Khayat, the courting of an eccentric donor, as well as private conversations with a sitting US president, governors, coaches, and celebrities. We also see how a man worked to make amends for past mistakes. The Education of a Lifetime is a funny, touching, and insightful memoir. It is proof one man, a man dedicated to respecting the dignity of every individual, can make lasting change. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Khayat.

His gentle demeanor and timeless wisdom made Harvey Penick America´s best-loved teacher of the game of golf. At the time of his death in April 1995, Harvey was well along in the work on this, his fourth book of golf instruction. Like his classic Little Red Book, The Game for a Lifetime is filled not so much with swing tips and stance aids, but with a timeless philosophy that seeks to improve your play by improving how you feel about your game. Harvey tells us about the different methods he used to help his pupils find twenty more yards off the tee; about the sweet-swinging students whose swings he could remember and recognize without having seen them for thirty-odd years; and he advises the seasoned golfer - whose seasoning is measured not in years, but in experience on the links and at the practice tee. Harvey always said that he knew that his teachings have stood the test of time. His was truly a lifetime spent pursuing the best the game has to offer us: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The Game for a Lifetime is a fitting testament from this remarkable man. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Whitaker, Bud Shrake, Tinsley Penick.
