On Line Book Reviews By Mike Ramey

“A man’s love goes through his stomach. A woman’s love goes through her purse.”

--South Africa

     There seems to have been a welcomed re-surfacing of interest in proverbs from the Motherland of Africa. The electronic frontier has been criss-crossed by a variety of websites, each one worthy in its own right to bring the truth of what our ancestors stated in brevity on the subject of the day from ages past. However, for those who still into reading books and turning pages, such written works seem

From Player to Coach by Mike Ramey

     I might get into a little trouble with this month’s column, but it is an overdue subject concerning women and coaching. I realize that there may be some that think that my column is a little one dimensional. Believe me, there are three dimensions when I put keys down to electronic paper. So, I warn you in advance…get out the smelling salts.

     Women SHOULD be coaches, too! However, the need is for women to coach OTHER women, more than men, and vice versa. There are certain things that ONLY

Teaching Millennial Young Women…OMG

I have been absent from this blog for the last month. Hard to believe, but it’s true and I apologize to those of you who look forward to my weekly posts. I have a good excuse though; I’ve been teaching a group of young ladies that have given me a run for my money. Call them young female millennials. 3828576015?profile=original

These young women are outspoken, opinionated, oppositional and hard to love. Many of them have dysfunctional relationships with their mothers – they have said “I hate my mom”, don’t respond well to r

West

Last week a piece circulated the internet written by a young woman about the three months she spent in India. She'd travelled there as part of the University of Chicago Indian Civilizations Program. That in itself isn't the part that made the story viral – it was her description of the sexual harassment and physical abuse she suffered at the hands of Indian men that got everyone's attention.

The young lady in question recounted frightening tales of having her breasts and crotch clawed at by total

MEMO: TOUGHEN UP, BABY!

BY MIKE RAMEY

Three quick things off of this month’s memo, right from the outset. First, our economy is in DEPRESSION not RECESSION. I make this statement to prepare the brotherhood for the ugly truth, rather than to believe the beautiful lie that the economy is going to get better in one or two cycles. Second, to be counted a man of quality, you have to learn how to toughen up in hard times! ‘Males’ who spend more time worrying about where their next video game is coming f
