John Hindle's new book.

John Hindle is a businessman and former general manager of the Winnipeg Goldeyes. He is an author too and he is just about to release his new book, "Making Contact: How to Connect with People". The book launch of Hindle's next bestseller is scheduled at McNally Robinson Booksellers, in Winnipeg, on May 22nd at 8:00 pm. But before he does that -- he's going to share all sorts of tidbits from it right here in Steinbach!! John Hindle will be the keynote speaker at tonight's Steinbach Chamber of Commerce banquet. What an invaluable thing to have -- the ability to truly connect with those around you -- in business and in life.

His first book is "Jackrabbits in the Outfield" and was all about his experiences in baseball. He has used those experiences and combined them with his experiences in business and real-life to put together examples of how to become a good contact hitter -- "one who connects in a meaningful way with others."

John lives in Winnipeg and "Making Contact" is his third book. He's been inducted into the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame.
