    ‘Hilarious . . . This original approach to discussing race is funny, intellectual and timely' Independent'Cutting!! This book rewarded me with dark, dry chuckles on every page' Reni Eddo-LodgeBy following the White Man Commandments - namely, that winning justifies anything and everything - you too can achieve success beyond your capabilities.With lessons on the value of shock and awe, putting compassion on the back-burner and pretending racism doesn't exist, Think Like a White Man teaches you how to understand, overcome and overthrow the White Man in the whiter-shade-of-pale world of work.‘I really can't think of any comedian, satirist or journalist (with a sense of humour) that has made me laugh out so loud and be so stimulated intellectually at the same time. No messing people, Nels Abbey has written the most original book ever . . . It takes hold of your cerebral cortex then grabs your funny bone, and it doesn't let go until the very end. Honestly. Even the appendices shine with brilliance. What kind of book is this? I don't know. Just read it and see how difficult it is to put the label on the work of a true mastermind' Benjamin Zephaniah"Hilariously captures the realities of working in corporate spaces . . . although lighthearted in tone, he approaches the topic with a level of care and understanding that allows readers to engage beyond the satire and confront the ways in which they navigate the workspace" Trench

    From its winners to its sinners, two bestselling sportswriters chronicle a dizzying trip through more than a century of baseball lore and legend.   Some of the stories are celebrated—from Ruth’s called shot to DiMaggio’s streak to Mays’s catch. Some of the men are titans of the game—Mantle, Williams, Koufax. But alongside those stories passed from generation to generation, Daniel Okrent and Steve Wulf have assembled tales both hard-to-believe and a pleasure to read. From the Black Sox scandal to Bill Veeck’s bizarre promotions, from its icons and iconoclasts, from the humble origins of the game to the landmark moments that made it the national pastime, Baseball Anecdotes reveals the enthralling (and often amusing) game that goes on both on the field and behind the scenes of baseball.   “A dandy introduction to the game.” —Newsweek   “A must . . . Its greatest value might be to those of us who want to pass along baseball lore to our children.” —San Jose Mercury News   “Beguiling . . . A history of the game in stories . . . Comic, tragic, controversial.” —The New York Times Book Review
