SSS NDA example

Collected a big binder of NDAs, Non-disclosure agreements. This one is from a helper via NZ.
Stopped doing NDAs, mostly, after this exercise. Never needed to really leverage them. But, our efforts for The Sports Dorm were in plans that went to AOL and elsewhere.

Book review: he Treasure Within - A Swimmer's Logbook

Review was published in 1996, January / Feb edition of SWIM.
By Kevin DeForrest, SSS publisher, 178 pages.

Review by Wayne McCauley

This book will appeal to many Masters swimmers who need a better way to focus on their goals. Kevin DeForrest, a top Masters swimmer, uses self discovery and self awareness techniques to develop not only the swimmer within but the whole person. His use of the Four Part hormony model for life may appeal to many. Throughout the book are pages upon page of inspirational quotations, from Einstein, Lao Tzu, and the Bible to Kermit the Frong. There are ten essays in the book coverin gmany different topics not specifically related to Masters swimming.

The author believes all things are connected. He uses goal setting and goal sheets that are swimming specific, conbining these goals with a one week record of daily events. The goal sheets and weekly logs are designed for you to write in the book. Each week you reflect on the data from the log sheets and determine lessons learned and objectives achieved.

Other version of the book scheduled for release are hardcover, spiral binding and audio and computer disk formats. But a goo dreview of a swim video or book focuses on the ideas that are expressed, not the packaging. The ideas contained in The Treasure Within make it an important asset to have and use.
