Athlos Book Club: What is the What

Lost…. and Found

Being lost is something we all try to avoid. Apprehension, despair, confusion, and hopelessness are a handful of the emotions a lost person experiences. Many of the Athlos Performance Character traits are employed when overcoming these distressing elements of being lost. The Athlos Academies staff recently read the book What is the What by Dave Eggers, which is a story of the Lost Boys of Sudan and how one of these young men, Valentino Achak Deng, exemplifies optimism, initiative, and grit in the face of unfathomable circumstances.
Athlos Book Club: The Boys in the Boat

In the Boat

Athlos staff recently enjoyed a highly engaging book club discussion on The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. This phenomenal story of the 1936 U.S. men’s Olympic rowing team is a great showcase of the three Athlos Pillars of Performance.
