OPEN, Agassi, Andre
1 Agassi, Andre OPEN
Vintage 2009 0307268195 / 9780307268198 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
An inspiring and entertaining gift for Father's Day. Far more than a superb memoir about the highest levels of professional tenn is, Open is the engrossing story of a remarkable life. Andre Agassi had his life mapped out for him before he left the crib. Groomed to be a tennis champion by his moody and demanding father, by the age of twenty-two Agassi had won the first of his eight grand slams and achieved wealth, celebrity, and the game's highest honors. But as he reveals in this searching autobiography, off the court he was often unhappy and confused, unfulfilled by his great achievements in a sport he had come to resent. Agassi writes candidly about his early success and his uncomfortable relationship with fame, his marriage to Brooke Shields, his growing interest in philanthropy, and--described in haunting, point-by-point detail--the highs and lows of his celebrated career.

When he became just the fourth man to win three Ironman© World Championship s, Craig "Crowie" Alexander joined triathlon's most elite inner circle of c hampions. In As the Crow Flies, the five-time world champion reveals his approach, hi s training, and the relationships that delivered the record-breaking race p erformance he says was a decade in the making. In his own words and through striking photographs from acclaimed sports photographer Paul K. Robbins, C rowie shows what it takes to race at the elite level--and how he balances t he work of triathlon with his first priority, his wife Neri and their young kids Lucy and Austin. Alexander reflects on influential moments of his early career and his entir e 2011 and early 2012 season, bringing triathletes inside his head during k ey workouts, training blocks, and pivotal moments in big races. Crowie stru ggles through injury, illness, and changing sponsorships, revealing the del icate balance between elite performance and disaster. Yet hardship on the r oad to Kona yielded to Crowie's hard work and determination as he won both the Ironman and Ironman 70.3© world championships, making him the first per son to win both championships in the same year. Epic workouts, grueling travel, record-setting race performance, giving back to sponsors and the sport--these are the tools of Crowie's trade, not to mention sleek wetsuits, cutting-edge time trial bikes, and technical footwear. And while those who know the sport of triathlon intimately will say.

PATHS TO GLORY (H), Armour, Mark
5 Armour, Mark PATHS TO GLORY (H)
Potomac Books 2003 157488560X / 9781574885606 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged Explores what historically successful teams have in common and how each team was a product of its time - Evaluates the challenge of every team's balance between long-term planning and taking calculated risks in pursuit of winning it all - Reviews some of the game's most disappointing teams and explains why they came up short An essential experience of being a baseball fan is the hopeful anticipation of seeing the hometown nine make a run at winning the World Series. In Paths to Glory, Mark L. Armour and Daniel R. Levitt review how teams build themselves up into winners. What makes a winning team like the 1900 Brooklyn Superbas or the 1917 White Sox or the 1997 Florida Marlins? And how are these teams different? What makes each championship team a unique product of its time? Armour and Levitt provide the historical context to show how the sports business side has changed dramatically but its competitive environment remains the same. Utilizing new statistics to evaluate a player's value and career patterns, Armour and Levitt explore the teams that took risks, created their own opportunities, and changed the game. How did the Washington Senators achieve the unthinkable and blow past Babe Ruth's Yankees in 1924 and 1925? How did the 1965 Minnesota Twins quickly rise to the top and why did they just as suddenly fall? Did Charlie Finley assemble the last old-fashioned championship team before free agency, or was the Moustache Gang another example of winning by building from within? Why d.

Everyone Needs a Second Chance on the Course and In Life Paul McAllister was a driven man. Ivy League educated and the founder of a multimillion dollar business, Paul was a success in everything but life-and golf. It only took one Pro-Am afternoon, one short putt, and one airborne putter to send his world flying in a different direction: a mulligan!

Guided by the wisdom and advice of an Old Pro, Paul learns about pri orities, about self-confidence, and about playing a good game both on and o ff the course. Written in the appealing "parable" style of other best-selling books such a s Who Moved My Cheese?, Gungo Ho! , and Whale Done! , golf pro Wally Armstr ong and author Ken Blanchard condense decades of practical know-how into a simple book with an amazing message. The Mulligan is a second chance to change it all, and improve both your lif e and your game! Editorial Reviews Review 'For those who have learned that golf is more than just a game, The Mulliga n will be welcome reading that will provide helpful insights not just for t heir golf game, but for their lives as well.' -- Ben Crenshaw, two-time Mas ters Champion and 2002 inductee to the World Golf Hall of Fame --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

13 Berkmann, Marcus RAIN MEN
Abacus Little, Brown 1996 0349107424 / 9780349107424 Paperback Very Good 
There are many cricket books, and they are all the same. 'Don't Tell Goochi e', autobiographical insights of nights on the tiles in Delhi with Lambie a nd the boys; 'Fruit cake days', a celebrated humourist recalls 'ball' - rel ated banter of yore; and Wisden, a deadly weapon when combined with a therm os flask. Rain Men is different. Like the moment the genius of Richie Benau d first revealed itself to you, it is a cricketing epiphany, a landmark in the literature of the game. Shining the light meter of reason into cricket' s incomparable madness, Marcus Berkmann illuminates all the obsessions and disappointments that the dedicated fan and pathologically hopeful clubman s uffers year after year - the ritual humiliation of England's middle order, the partially-sighted umpires, the battling average that reads more like a shoe size. As satisfying as a perfectly timed cover drive, and rather easie r to come by, Rain Men offers essential justification for anyone who has ev er run a team-mate out on purpose or secretly blubbed at a video of Botham' s Ashes.
