About the Author

Greg Harden is a Peak Performance Coach, motivational speaker, and executive consultant who is best known for his work with seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady. He also worked with Heisman Trophy winner and Super Bowl MVP Desmond Howard, and twenty-three-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps.

Steve Hamilton is the two-time Edgar Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author of the Alex McKnight series (with over a million copies sold), the Nick Mason series, and the stand-alone novel The Lock Artist. Two of his novels have been named New York Times Notable Books of the Year, and he's one of only three authors in history to win Edgar Awards for both Best First Novel and Best Novel. Other major awards include the Shamus, the Barry, the AMA Alex Award, and the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger for Best Thriller. He was born and raised in the Detroit area and attended the University of Michigan, where he received the prestigious Hopwood Award for Fiction.

Tom Brady is the quarterback and offensive captain of the New England Patriots, a team he has played for since 2000. During his time with the team, he has won six Super Bowls, and in four of them was named MVP (Super Bowl XXXVI, XXXVIII, XLIX, and LI). Additionally, he has won three league MVP awards (2007, 2010, and 2017), has been selected to fourteen Pro Bowls, and has led the New England Patriots, to more division titles (17) than any other quarterback in NFL history. Brady ranks second all-time in career passing yards and second in career touchdown passes. With a career postseason record of 30-11, he has won more playoff games than any other quarterback, and appeared in more playoff games than any player at any position. He was named one of the NFL's 100 Greatest Players during the league's 50th anniversary celebration in 2019.

"Greg Harden has and will always be one of the most influential people in my life."

-- "Tom Brady, Super Bowl MVP"

"He's a miracle worker. He made me a better coach and a better person."

-- "Bob Bowman, swimming coach to Michael Phelps"

"If Greg Harden wasn't at the University of Michigan, I don't win the Heisman."

-- "Desmond Howard, Heisman Trophy winner"

"I. Can't. Wait!!!"

-- "Michael Phelps, twenty-three-time Olympic Gold Medalist"

"I highly recommend this book as a must-read. Greg and I have worked together since my days as a player at Michigan and now as a head coach for the Wolverines. He has been instrumental in creating championship cultures in and out of sports."

-- "Jim Harbaugh, University of Michigan Football Coach"

"Greg Harden and our work together saved my life."

-- "Samantha Arsenault Livingstone, Olympic Gold Medalist"

"Greg Harden is a classic example of how actions speak louder than words. His coaching led to the success stories of many professionals from all walks of life. The motivational speaker always asks his mentees, 'If you don't believe in yourself, why should I believe in you?' However, Harden is more than a life coach to Tom Brady."

"If humanity ever needed a 'secret weapon' to reclaim balance and positivity in these chaotic times, the moment is now. Thankfully, that weapon exists, and it's being deployed Aug. 15. Stay Sane in an Insane World: How to Control the Controllables and Thrive relays a trove of commonsense wisdom that author Greg Harden, MSW '81, accrued during his long and fruitful career in Michigan Athletics. For years he served as U-M's 'counselor in chief' to hundreds of student-athletes, coaches, and staff. Now he's ready to share what he's learned with the rest of us."
