When Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal both shockingly exited Wimbledon in the early rounds of the 2013 championships, the level of expectation on Scotsman Andy Murray to become the first British champion of the men’s competition since 1936—already high—reached fever pitch. Overcoming a two-set deficit in the quarterfinals, Murray would go on to face world number one Novak Djokovic in the final and, after three hours filled with drama, tension, and brilliant tennis, become Wimbledon champion in front of 15,000 Centre Court fans and millions more watching on television. This fascinating and revealing biography examines how the player from Dunblane, Scotland—a country not known for its tennis heritage—rose to the top of the sport. Veteran tennis journalist Mark Hodgkinson examines the individuals who have influenced Murray’s career, including his family, his coaches, and his girlfriend, and assesses how the Scot has won over a dubious and critical public. This biography gets to the heart of Andy Murray’s extraordinary and dramatic journey.

More than a tool to correct bad behavior, this handbook urges parents to move beyond typical discipline techniques by creating an environment based on mutual respect, emotional safety, and positive, open communication. The seven outlined principles redefine the parent-dominated family by teaching parents how to achieve mutual parent/child respect without being submissive, set firm limits without using demands or coercion, and empower children to open up, cooperate, and realize their own innate potential. Based on Marshall Rosenberg's Nonviolent Communication process, the framework helps parents break down the barriers to outstanding relationships with their kids by avoiding destructive language and habits that keep parents and children from understanding one another. Activities, stories, and resources help parents immediately apply the seven keys to any parenting situation.
