Glen Ellyn author Paul L. Corona will sign his new book -- The Wisdom of Walk-Ons: 7 Winning Strategies for College, Business and Life (with a foreword by Bobby Bowden) -- on Saturday, December 8, from 1:00-3:00 p.m., at The Bookstore, 475 N.

The Wisdom of Walk-Ons tells the true stories of three unrecruited college football players who -- against overwhelming odds -- played for some of the greatest programs and Hall of Fame coaches in history: the Alabama Crimson Tide with Paul "Bear" Bryant, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish with Dan Devine, and the Southern California Trojans with John Robinson. Former walk-ons Gordon Adams, Bob Bleyer, and Alan Pizzitola graduated from these storied universities in the 1970s and '80s with academic honors, national championship rings, practical skills, and a collection of winning strategies that helped them persevere and succeed in business and life in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s. All of us can apply this walk-on wisdom and become more successful and fulfilled in our professional and personal lives.
