Rod Huff is a successful business executive with thirty five years of experience in various executive level positions. Deadly Beliefs is rooted in Mr. Huff’s interest in the differences between Christianity and Islam. His idea for the book came out of today’s headlines.
This is his second book. His first work is a non-fiction book, Coaching Made Easier, How to Successfully Manage Your Youth Baseball Team which was published by Coaches Choice of Monterrey, CA in 2009. This book was birthed from his love of youth baseball and his coaching experiences. When he started coaching he looked for a book that would teach him how to be a good coach. He found countless drills and skills books but none directed exclusively at the volunteer coach. Consequently, he developed his own system and after he stopped coaching he put it into a book to assist other coaches. His system worked— in his nine-year record as a head coach he landed five league championships and four runner-up titles.
