Public heroes, private felons : athletes and crimes against women by Jeff Benedict( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeff Benedict thoroughly investigates for the first time athletes' abusive behavior, delving into the full spectrum of complex factors that give rise to and perpetuate the disturbing pattern of frequent sexual and domestic violence toward women. And, opposing the public stance of sports organizations, he offers compelling evidence that male athletes commit more crimes against women than do their peers. Benedict provides an in-depth examination of several incidents of rape, gang rape, and assault by successful sports figures, including the cases of Mike Tyson, Lawrence Phillips and other members of the University of Nebraska football team, former Boston Celtic Marcus Webb, and Warren Moon. Benedict's probe confronts such controversial issues as race, class, the groupie phenomenon, the sexually permissive lifestyle of many athletes, the consensual sex defense, and the sports industry's indifference to recruiting or drafting talented athletes with criminal records
No bone unturned : the adventures of a top Smithsonian forensic scientist and the legal battle for America's oldest skeletons by Jeff Benedict( Book )

When he's not at a notorious crime scene or a mass disaster, Doug Owsley is entering tombs and crypts, unwrapping mummies, or climbing into caves to unlock the secrets of bones. In No Bone Unturned, investigative journalist Jeff Benedict not only unveils a compelling portrait of the man behind America's most notorious cases but also gives us a fascinating look inside the world of forensic science as seen through the eyes of a leading specialist. Doug Owsley's extraordinary talent has put his phone number on speed dial for federal agencies, from the FBI to the CIA and the State Department. When the Branch Davidian compound in Waco caught fire, when a terrorist-flown plane crashed into the Pentagon, and when mass graves were uncovered in Croatia, the authorities called Owsley. Through cutting-edge science, instinctive artistry, and dogged tenacity, Owsley painstakingly rebuilds the skeleton, and helps identify it and determine the cause of death
Little pink house : a true story of defiance and courage by Jeff Benedict( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Susette Kelo was just trying to rebuild her life when she purchased an old house perched on the waterfront in New London, Conn. It wasn't fancy, but with hard work she was able to turn it into a home that was important to her. Little did she know that the City of New London, desperate to revive its flailing economy, wanted to raze her house and others along the waterfront in order to win a lucrative Pfizer pharmaceutical contract that would bring new business into the city. Kelo and fourteen neighbors refused to sell, so the city decided to exercise its power of eminent domain to condemn their homes, launching a case that ultimately reached the Supreme Court. Investigative journalist Jeff Benedict takes us behind the scenes of this case, and Kelo speaks for the first time about how one woman took on corporate America to save her home.--

QB : my life behind the spiral by Steve Young( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steve Young produced some of the most memorable moments in NFL history. The Run--his electrifying 49-yard game-winning touchdown against Minnesota. The Catch II--his last-second touchdown strike against Green Bay. Then there were his record-setting six touchdown passes in Super Bowl XXIX. But Young's most impressive victories were personal ones that were won off the field when no one was watching. QB is a remarkably revealing memoir of an athletically gifted Mormon boy with a 4.0 GPZ, a photographic memory, and a severe case of childhood separation anxiety. This memoir gives readers the sense of being inside Young's helmet while he runs through opponents both on and off the field. --
