'I can't think of a finer chef to have written a book on nutrition and diet for athletes' Tom Kerridge 
A must-have recipe book designed for cyclists of all levels, written by Alan Murchison - a Michelin-starred chef and champion athlete who now cooks for British Cycling's elite athletes. His easy-to-make and nutritionally balanced meals will help cyclists reach their cycling performance goals - this is flavoursome food to make you go faster. 
The Cycling Chef features more than 65 mouth-watering recipes - including breakfasts, salads, main meals, desserts and snacks, as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes - each designed with busy cyclists in mind. They are all quick and easy to prepare, and are made from ingredients that are readily available in any local supermarket. 
A good diet won't make a sub-standard cyclist into a world beater, but a poor diet can certainly make a world class or any ambitious cyclist sub-standard. However, an optimised diet, whatever your potential, will help you reach your own personal performance goals.

    'A fascinating book about the psychology of elite sport… Mind Games explores compelling territory.' Don McRae, the Guardian 
    'An amazing book that I very much enjoyed.' Simon Mundie, Don't Tell Me the Score (BBC Podcast) 
    'a fascinating book' Daily Mail 
    It's well known that to reach the top in elite sport, you need to have spent years honing and perfecting your physical ability. However this is only part of the template required to win – the other half is about mind games.  
    Throughout her career as one of the world's top athletes, Annie Vernon struggled with existential questions about the purpose of sport in our comfortable, first-world society: Why do we do it? What is it in our psyche that makes us push ourselves to the limit? What allows us to mentally overcome the physical pain? 
    Now retired from competition, Olympic silver medallist and world champion rower Annie Vernon has decided to look for answers to these questions. Drawing on her personal experiences and interviews with some of the best coaches, athletes and psychologists from across the world of sport – including Lucy Gossage, Katherine Grainger, Matthew Pinsent, Brian Moore, Brian Ching and Dr Steve Peters – Annie discovers the secrets of how athletes train their brains in order to become world beaters. 
    Annie debunks the myth that elite performers are universally cool, calm and brimming with self-assurance. Through exploring the bits on the inside that nobody can see, Annie instead creates a new understanding of what it takes to be successful in sport and uncovers that, in fact, an elite athlete is not that different from you and me. It's simply a question of mind games.

    We're delighted to introduce the Swiss bestseller about Roger Federer in English, brought to you by k&b Edition. It was written by Simon Graf and translated into English from the original German by Sophie Debrunner Hall. Over its 16 essays, Simon Graf's new portrait offers new insights into one of the greatest athletes of all time.
    Roger Federer is the global star who emerged from our very midst. Mad about ball sports from a young age, his playfulness and passion pushed him fur-ther and further – and on to dizzying heights. His sporting exploits are well-known, but who is the man behind them? For the last twenty years, Zurich-based journalist Simon Graf has fol-lowed Federer's triumphant journey through the great tennis arenas of the world for the Swiss press. Here, he an-swers the key questions: how did Federer become a Zen master of the courts? What part did his parents and his wife Mirka have to play? How did he maintain his love for the sport over all these years? Why does he owe eternal thanks to his rival, Rafael Nadal? How did he stay so normal? And what can we learn from him?

    With extensive reporting and engrossing storytelling, Jim Baker and  
    Bernard Corbett give us the scenes of one of the NFL's most successful  
    and popular franchises. Interviews with Giants legends who participated  
    in these historic moments put us behind closed doors in the  
    commissioner's office during a fixed game in 1946, in the backfield wit  
    Frank Gifford as the Giants advance to the championship in 1958, and in  
    the huddle with Eli Manning as he diagrams the play that would result in 
     the deciding touchdown in the 2008 Super Bowl. 
    With an eye for  
    memorable details and historical significance, Baker and Corbett let the 
     players themselves tell the war stories that all Giants fans love to  
    relive, and in so doing, construct an engrossing and exciting history of 
     the team and the sport. 
    The book will also feature revealing  
    statistical sidebars and fresh analysis of the games that throw new  
    light on the history of the team.
