Eighty-eight years after their last World Series win, the Chicago White Sox made up for lost time by sweeping the Houston Astros to become the 2005 world champions of baseball. With 99 regular-season wins, the Sox brought the second-best record in baseball to the postseason. Only one loss to the Angels prevented a complete sweep in every phase of their postseason play to win with an impressive 11–1 record. Believe It! celebrates the White Sox’s championship season, its players, its manager, and its rich history. This book features the writing of Chicago Tribune columnists John Kass, Rick Morrissey, and Mike Downey, who provide a narrative of the season and World Series win. There are exclusive interviews with key contributors—manager Ozzie Guillen, slugger Paul Konerko, ace Mark Buerhle, and more—in which they talk about baseball and life with the Sox. And for the statistician fans, the not-to-be-missed numbers behind the season and throughout White Sox history are included.

A unique journey through the 20th century in Chicago, this work reveals the characters whose lives put an indelible stamp on the city. Some were famous, like Richard J. Daley and Harold Washington, while others were infamous or unacknowledged, living fascinating lives that helped shape the city while remaining anonymous at the same time like, such as Emma Schweer, who is believed to have been America’s oldest elected office holder; Zofia Kuklo, a shy church-going, Polish immigrant grandmother who hid Jewish individuals from the Nazis during World War II; and James Tuach MacKenzie, the dashing and charismatic former drum major and band manager of the Stock Yard Kilty Band, among the most prominent of Chicago’s many pipe bands. In Chicago Lives readers explore the struggles of immigrants, the innovation of architects and artists, the dedication of activists and city officials, and the actions of Chicagoan’s whose feats were never recorded by history books, until now.

From the editors of Chicago Tribune and highlighted by dozens of classic historic photos and populated by unforgettable characters like Lech Walesa and President George H.W. Bush, here is the story of a bold pontiff who towered over his century and then led his church into a new millennium. From his beginnings as a young actor and philosopher from southern Poland, forged in the horrors of World War II, this biography traces how he became a priest, then archbishop of Krakow, and Cardinal before, to the amazement of the world, he became Pope John Paul II, the leader of the world’s largest religious body. This work touches on he stared down dictators and clamped down on critics; he jetted around the globe to spread his message, thrilling millions and transforming the image of the papacy; and how he planted the seeds of human rights and national destiny in his native Poland, eventually sparking the fall of Communism throughout Europe. The book is a timeless keepsake, an important window into Pope John Paul II, a man who left an indelible mark on his church and his times.
