Summary

Angela Rock gets to the heart of advanced beach volleyball tactics. Because she was an Olympic indoor player first, she understands how to transition from indoor to beach. She explains how the games are different strategically and which highly honed indoor tactics served her well on the beach—and which did not.

 
As both an amateur and professional player with decades of experience, Rock distills her hard-won knowledge of the game. She shares her “secrets” and those of other champion players, revealing information only the best would know. Although this is a book for anyone who wants to play beach volleyball, it is a goldmine for aspiring elite players. Her tactics are clearly explained and illustrated with real examples, including warming up outside the courts, serving to score, setting skills and responsibilities, offensive tactics, effective blocking, defensive variations, and strategic options.

 
Beach volleyball has come a long way in the last 25 years, and Angela Rock offers an insider’s view into the sport unlike any we’ve seen before.

    Cul de Canard (Duck’s Rump), Farefelue (The Crazy One), Plantureuse (Buxom Gal), Peute (The Ugly One)—the names are deliciously French but one would make a terrible mistake to think that only French-born trout like these fishing flies. “Design,” said Datus Proper, “is why this book has as much to do with the Henry’s Fork as with the Risle.” At least one of the flies introduced by French Fishing Flies more than twenty-five years ago, the Cul de Canard, has long since become a true staple in fly boxes around the world. Others will surely follow. This fascinating book is bound to be of great interest to fly fishermen everywhere.

    The story of a team, a town, and a leader: Vince Lombardi’s first year as head coach of the Green Bay Packers, and how he turned them into a powerhouse.   The once-vaunted Green Bay Packers were a laughingstock by the late 1950s. They hadn’t fielded a winning team in more than a decade, and were close to losing their franchise to another city. They were in desperate need of a savior—and he arrived in a wood-paneled station wagon in the dead of winter from New York City.   In a single year, Vince Lombardi—the grizzled coach who took no bull—transformed a team of underachievers into winners and resurrected a Wisconsin city known for its passion for sport. He would lead them to championship to championship, and bring out the best in players including Bart Starr, Jim Taylor, Willie Davis, Forrest Gregg, and many more. From an award-winning sportswriter, That First Season is “a compelling read about perhaps the most compelling coach ever to stride an NFL sideline” (Washington Times).   “Richly detailed in seamless prose, this is historical sportswriting at its finest.”—Lars Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of The Mannings: The Fall and Rise of a Football Family
