    "The incomparable and mysterious Sandy Koufax is revealed…. This is an absorbing book, beautifully written." -Wall Street Journal  
    "Leavy has hit it out of the park…A lot more than a biography. It's a consideration of how we create our heroes, and how this hero's self perception distinguishes him from nearly every other great athlete in living memory… a remarkably rich portrait." - Time  
    The instant New York Times bestseller about the baseball legend and famously reclusive Dodgers' pitcher Sandy Koufax, from award-winning former Washington Post sportswriter Jane Leavy. Sandy Koufax reveals, for the first time, what drove the three-time Cy Young award winner to the pinnacle of baseball and then-just as quickly-into self-imposed exile.

    The Academy is an International Sports Mecca for teen athletes. There  are only two ways in.  Deep pockets or enough talent to score a  scholarship.   
     
    Young tennis star Maya's dreams have finally come  true when she earns a scholarship to The Academy. Plucked from her small  town, Maya moves to the sports training facility/boarding school to  (hopefully) start the beginning of her pro career. But Maya's fantasy of  The Academy doesn't quite match the reality. Because where there are hot, talented teens, there's a lot of drama. Meet the players: 
     
    Nicole: A tennis star who feels threatened by Maya (but she'd never admit it). 
    Cleo: Maya's rebel/punk roommate who is nearing the top of the golf world. 
    Renee: The gorgeous swimmer with enough money to buy her way into The Academy. 
    Travis: The son of The Academy owner--perfectly groomed to be the next NFL star.  
    Jake: Travis' younger brother--the bad boy to his brother's good.

    Sportscaster Howard Cosell dubbed it “rule number one of the jockocracy”: sports and politics just don’t mix. But in Game Over, celebrated alt-sportswriter Dave Zirin proves once and for all that politics has breached the modern sports arena with a vengeance. From the NFL lockout and the role of soccer in the Arab Spring to the Penn State sexual abuse scandals and Tim Tebow’s on-field genuflections, this timely and hard-hitting new book from the “conscience of American sportswriting” (The Washington Post) reveals how our most important debates about class, race, religion, sex, and the raw quest for political power are played out both on and off the field.Game Over offers new insights and analysis of headline-grabbing sports controversies, exploring the shady side of the NCAA, the explosive 2011 MLB All-Star Game, and why the Dodgers crashed and burned. It covers the fascinating struggles of gay and lesbian athletes to gain acceptance, female athletes to be more than sex symbols, and athletes everywhere to assert their collective bargaining rights as union members. Zirin also illustrates the ways in which athletes are once again using their exalted platforms to speak out and reclaim sports from the corporate interests that have taken it hostage. In Game Over, he cheers the victories but also reflects on how far we have yet to go. Combining brilliant set pieces with a sobering overview of today’s sports scene in Zirin’s take-no-prisoners style, Game Over is a must read for anyone, sports fan or not, interested in understanding how sports reflect and shape society—and why the stakes have never been higher.
