STUART, Florida. (April 1, 2005) - Skills for Life, LLC, publisher of the book, has agreed to donate eight ($8.00) dollars to NCYS for every book purchased by affiliates and their members. Books can be purchased by clicking on the Skills for Life link or by going directly to their website - Use of the coupon code - NCYS - with each order will result in the $8 per book donation to NCYS.

The book is co-authored by Mike Jarvis, nationally respected Head Men's Basketball Coach at St. Johns University, and Jonathan Peck, a successful management/communications consultant for over 35 years. Skills for Life is an ideal roadmap for anyone looking to become the best they can be in life, relationships and business. The book is also perfect for coaches, teachers, parents, grandparents and mentors seeking to help the impressionable young people they deal with on a daily basis develop a strong character, sense of self, and a direction for their lives.

Skills for Life provides basic information and strategies to give the reader a firm footing for life's journey, and teaches the "unwritten rules" that help lead to success in any endeavor.

Mike Jarvis and Jonathan Peck have learned, though their life-long involvement in the worlds of sport and business, what it takes to succeed in life. Skills for Life is an outgrowth of a program created by Mike and Jon to help student-athletes achieve their goals in the "real world."
