A book that explores the enduring legends of Snake, Foo, Dr. Death, and John Madden’s Oakland Raiders, Badasses is the definitive biography of arguably the last team to play old-fashioned tough-guy football. Peter Richmond, co-author of the New York Times bestseller The Glory Game, offers a fascinating look at the 1970s Oakland Raiders, led by colorful greats from another era: Ken Stabler, Willie Brown, Gene Upshaw, Jim Otto, Art Shell, head coach John Madden, and owner Al Davis. In the bestselling vein of Boys Will Be Boys, Badasses chronicles the bar-room exploits, practice-field pranks, and Super Bowl glories of the team’s many misfits, cast-offs, psychos, and geniuses of the game.

Make no mistake: Our founding fathers were more bandanas-and-muscles than powdered-wigs-and-tea. As a prisoner of war, Andrew Jackson walked several miles barefoot across state lines while suffering from smallpox and a serious head wound received when he refused to polish the boots of the soldiers who had taken him captive. He was thirteen years old. A few decades later, he became the first popularly elected president and served the nation, pausing briefly only to beat a would-be assassin with a cane to within an inch of his life. Theodore Roosevelt had asthma, was blind in one eye, survived multiple gunshot wounds, had only one regret (that there were no wars to fight under his presidency), and was the first U.S. president to win the Medal of Honor, which he did after he died. Faced with the choice, George Washington actually preferred the sound of bullets whizzing by his head in battle over the sound of silence. And now these men—these hallowed leaders of the free world—want to kick your ass. Plenty of historians can tell you which president had the most effective economic strategies, and which president helped shape our current political parties, but can any of them tell you what to do if you encounter Chester A. Arthur in a bare-knuckled boxing fight? This book will teach you how to be better, stronger, faster, and more deadly than the most powerful (and craziest) men in history. You’re welcome.

"Badges and Badasses" is based on real events that happened during the author's three years of working undercover in "Stings" or "Storefronts." It portrays the day to day happenings in the operation of a "Storefront" and situations arising during his working one on one against the car thieves outside the "Storefront" surroundings. Joseph A. Fitch was born in Clay County, Indiana, and graduated from Sugar Ridge Township School at Ashboro in rural Clay County. He attended Indiana State University at Terre Haute, then applied for admission to the Indiana State Police Academy and was accepted. Upon his graduation from the Academy he was assigned the Indiana Toll Road where he served as a patrolman. During his first year as a police officer he qualified to be a member of the Toll Road District Pistol Team and soon became a member of the Top 20 pistol shots in the Department. A position he maintained the remainder of his career. During the last ten years of his career he was a member of the Indiana State Police Pistol Team that represented the Indiana State Police in national competitions. Trooper Fitch transferred to the Terre Haute Post from the Toll Road and was promoted to Sergeant and assigned to the Headquarters Vehicle Theft Section. During this portion of his career he worked undercover in two "Sting" or "Storefront" operations buying stolen vehicles from the car thieves and had minor involvement in a third undercover "Sting." His retirement from the Indiana State Police did not end his career in law enforcement. He served as Sheriff of Sullivan County, Indiana, and retired from law enforcement after serving as the Sullivan County Indiana Prosecutors Investigator for seven years making a total of almost 40 years in law enforcement.

Note for ebook customers: The design and layout of this book play a key role in conveying the author's message. When creating the ebooks, we've tried to keep the look and feel of the print edition, but this means that not all e-reading devices will support the files. The EPUB format is optimized for iPad. The Mobi files are optimized for Kindle Fire tablets and phones and for Kindle reading apps. Imagine you’re in a game with one objective: a bestselling product or service. The rules? No marketing budget, no PR stunts, and it must be sustainably successful. No short-term fads. This is not a game of chance. It is a game of skill and strategy. And it begins with a single question: given competing products of equal pricing, promotion, and perceived quality, why does one outsell the others? The answer doesn’t live in the sustainably successful products or services. The answer lives in those who use them. Our goal is to craft a strategy for creating successful users. And that strategy is full of surprising, counter-intuitive, and astonishingly simple techniques that don’t depend on a massive marketing or development budget. Techniques typically overlooked by even the most well-funded, well-staffed product teams. Every role is a key player in this game. Product development, engineering, marketing, user experience, support—everyone on the team. Even if that team is a start-up of one. Armed with a surprisingly overlooked science and a unique POV, we can can reduce the role of luck. We can build sustainably successful products and services that rely not on unethical persuasive marketing tricks but on helping our users have deeper, richer experiences. Not just in the moments while they’re using our product but, more importantly, in the moments when they aren’t.
