Drawing on more than a half century in professional sports, as well as decades as a motivational speaker, Pat Williams has spent a lifetime researching what it takes to be a winner. What he has observed and recorded in this magnum opus on the topic is that all winners--whether in sports, business or everyday life--share 12 characteristics, and they do them to an extreme. Through exhaustive research, Williams discovered that winning has a broader meaning than a mark on a ledger after a competition. In fact, it doesn't even mean someone has to lose. Winning is the way you approach what you do. It's a mindset; a way of life. It can be your life, a life of Extreme Winning.

Matsui... Nomo... Sasaki... Ichiro... the so-called American "National Pastime" has developed a decidedly Japanese flair. Indeed, in this year's All-Star game, two of the starting American League outfielders were from Japan. And for the third straight year, Ichiro - the fleet-footed Seattle Mariner - received more votes for the All-Star game than any other player in the game today. Some 15 years ago, in the bestseller "You Gotta Have Wa," Robert Whiting examined how former American major league ballplayers tried to cope with a different culture while playing pro ball in Japan. Now, Whiting reverses his field and reveals how select Japanese stars have come across the Pacific to play in the big leagues. Not only have they had to deal with the American way of life, but they have individually changed the game in dramatic fashion.
