As part of the acclaimed Sports Virtues series, "The 1980 Men's and 1998 Women's United States Olympic Hockey Teams: Unity " discusses the struggles and triumphs of each team. As with each story in the Sports Virtues series, this book assigns a virtue to a celebrated athlete, team, or coach, and uses that person or team's story to help the reader achieve that virtue for him or herself. What emerges after reading these stories is not only a greater understanding and appreciation of the virtues that these icons needed to get through life, but also an inspiration for the reader. Each story is followed by a small quotation from literature to amplify the meaning and application of the virtue, and each story is also followed by a series of study/review questions and other interactive activities to help the reader further understand the virtue and how to achieve it. This book is for people of all ages, but it makes for the perfect gift from parents to children or from adult mentors to their students. Other books in the Sports Virtues series include: Lou Gehrig: Appreciation Gale Sayers and Brian Piccolo: Compassion Roberto Clemente: Dedication Susan Butcher: Determination Pele: Devotion John Wooden: Discipline Mike Krzyzewski: Encouragement Cal Ripken, Jr.: Endurance Walter ""Red"" Barber: Fairness Dennis Byrd: Faithfulness Hank Aaron: Fearlessness Amos Alonzo Stagg: Honesty Eric Liddell: Humility Arthur Ashe: Integrity Bill Bradley: Intelligence Jim Valvano: joyfulness Dan O'Brien & Dave Johnson: Kindness Dean Smith: Loyalty Harvey Penick: Modesty Branch Rickey & Jackie Robinson: Nobility Althea Gibson: Persistence Clarence "Big House" Gaines, Sr.: Respectability Joan Benoit Samuelson & Wilma Rudolph: Strength Vince Lombardi: Toughness Gertrude Ederle: Triumph Ken Venturi: Trust The 1980 Men's and 1998 Women's United States Olympic Hockey Teams: Unity Eddie Robinson: Visionary Happy Chandler: Wisdom
