    Pedalare! Pedalare!

    Cycling was a sport so important in Italy that it marked a generation, sparked fears of civil war, changed the way Italian was spoken, led to legal reform and even prompted the Pope himself to praise a cyclist, by name, from his balcony in St Peters in Rome. It was a sport so popular that it created the geography of Italy in the minds of her citizens, and some have said that it was cycling, not political change, that united Italy. 
      
     
    Pedalare, Pedalare! is the first complete history of Italian cycling to be published in English. The book moves chronologically from the first Giro d'Italia (Italy's equivalent of the Tour de France) in 1909 to the present day. The tragedies and triumphs of great riders such as Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali appear alongside stories of the support riders, snow-bound mountains and the first and only woman to ride the whole Giro. 
      
     
    Cycling's relationship with Italian history, politics and culture is always up front, with reference to fascism, the cold war and the effect of two world wars. The sport is explored alongside changes in Italian society as a whole, from the poor peasants who took up cycling in the early, pioneering period, to the slick, professional sport of today. Scandals and controversy appear throughout the book as constant features of the connection between fans, journalists and cycling. 
     Concluding with an examination of doping, which has helped to destroy what was at one time the most popular sport of all, Pedalare, Pedalare is an engrossing history of a national passion.

    “Mr. Petit is the perfect teacher” in this fascinating, educational volume on knot-tying—an art and science that has held civilization together (The Wall Street Journal).   Philippe Petit is known for his astounding feat of daring when, on August 7, 1974, he stepped out on a wire illegally rigged between the World Trade Center’s twin towers in New York City. But beyond his balance, courage, and showmanship, there was one thing Petit had to be absolutely certain of—his knots. Without the confidence that his knots would hold, he never would have left the ground. In fact, while most of us don’t think about them beyond tying our shoelaces, the humble knot is crucial in countless contexts, from sailing to sports to industrial safety to art, agriculture, and more.   In this truly unique book, Petit offers a guide to tying over sixty of his essential knots, with practical sketches illustrating his methods and clear tying instructions. Filled with photos in which special knots were used during spectacular high-wire walks, quirky knot trivia, personal anecdotes, helpful tips, magic tricks, and special tying challenges, Why Knot? will entertain and educate readers of all ages.   “In reading Philippe’s book we are cogently reminded that without the ability to secure a rope, or tether a goat, or make fast the sheets of a galley, much of the civilization that we take for granted would disappear as easily as a slipknot in the hands of a Vegas conjuror.” —Sting, musician and activist   “His descriptions are clear, he deploys humor frequently and he makes his points with anecdotes that are colorful and memorable. Explaining the purpose and creation of knots and thanks to those flawless drawings Mr. Petit earns perfect marks.” —The Wall Street Journal

    Phil Jackson's account of the Lakers' game-by-game progress through the 1999-2000 season and his views on the state of the NBA is supplemented by his friend Charley Rosen's novelist's impressions of the Lakers, Los Angeles, and the league.Though Phil Jackson won six NBA titles in eight years as coach of the Chicago Bulls, many an analyst opined that his success had less to do with his much-discussed "Zen" approach to basketball than with the presence of Michael Jordan on the Bulls roster. So in 1999, when Jackson took over a beleaguered Los Angeles Lakers team, the sports world was watching closely. As it turned out, Phil Jackson was observing himself and his new team closely, too, collaborating with his good friend Charley Rosen on a firsthand account of the 1999-2000 season and an exploration of his lifelong pursuit of the purity at the heart of the game.Throughout the season—which culminated in the Lakers winning the NBA Championship—Phil and Charley got together frequently to tape conversations about the challenge of bringing discipline and focus to a talented Lakers team that had failed to achieve its potential. Phil wrote his own account of the Lakers' game-by-game progress and his views on the state of the NBA; Charley added his novelist's impressions of the Lakers, Los Angeles, and the league. Together they bring you the fascinating inside story of the founding of a new Lakers dynasty and the triumph of Phil Jackson's hardwood metaphysics.

    Robert Penn has saddled up nearly every day of his adult life. In his 
     late twenties, he pedaled 25,000 miles around the world. Today he rides 
     to get to work, sometimes for work, to bathe in air and sunshine, to  
    travel, to go shopping, to stay sane, and to skip bath time with his  
    kids. He's no Sunday pedal pusher. So when the time came for a new bike, 
     he decided to pull out all the stops. He would build his dream bike,  
    the bike he would ride for the rest of his life; a customized machine  
    that reflects the joy of cycling.It's All About the Bike follows 
     Penn's journey, but this book is more than the story of his hunt for  
    two-wheel perfection. En route, Penn brilliantly explores the culture,  
    science, and history of the bicycle. From artisanal frame shops in the  
    United Kingdom to California, where he finds the perfect wheels, via  
    Portland, Milan, and points in between, his trek follows the serpentine  
    path of our love affair with cycling. It explains why we ride. 
     
    It's All About the Bike 
     is, like Penn's dream bike, a tale greater than the sum of its parts.  
    An enthusiastic and charming tour guide, Penn uses each component of the 
     bike as a starting point for illuminating excursions into the rich  
    history of cycling. Just like a long ride on a lovely day, It's All About the Bike is pure joy- enriching, exhilarating, and unforgettable.
