“Having studied Kelly's time at Oregon extensively, Saltveit has written the book on Kelly. Literally.” —Dan Graziano, ESPN.During his four years as football coach at the University of Oregon, Chip Kelly led the previously unheralded Ducks to a 46-7 record. But Chip Kelly's method goes a lot deeper than his high-risk defense and lightning-fast, no-huddle offense.What is behind Chip’s astonishing success? It's a lot more than just plays and tactics. Now that he's in the NFL as head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, this book looks at the remarkable philosophy and innovative management strategies that Chip Kelly uses to build elite teams—strategies that every leader or business manager can employ to make their own brand a champion.“He just thinks so differently than anyone I’ve ever met.” —Oregon assistant coach, John Neal"Saltveit lays out a clear picture of how Kelly operates." —Bob Ford, Philadelphia Inquirer"Great stuff! Highly recommend. Must read for Eagles/football fans. Will read it every year headed into our preseason." —Brian Flinn, wide receivers coach, Villanova
In his illustrious career as a cartoonist for the New Yorker and other publications, Joseph Farris has created dozens of hilarious cartoons about the best game in the world at which to be bad.”A.A. Milne had it right, and Farris’s cartoons get to the heart of the game’s wonderful contradiction: over the course of eighteen holes, golf has the capacity to bring great joy and drive you crazy.Farris treats us to the sight of a blissfully happily newlywed with Just Married” emblazoned on the back of his golf cart; of an archaeologist who discovers a hieroglyph featuring an annoyed-looking pharaoh breaking a golf club over his knee; and a TV-watching husband who rebuffs his naked wife’s amorous advances in no uncertain terms: Not now, I’m watching Tiger Woods.”It’s been said that real golfers don’t cry. That may or may not be true. Joseph Farris’s cartoons are sure to make any golfer laugh.
A thirty-something aspiring writer, G., encounters a former romantic rival at the post office, a man he once wished didn’t exist. On a whim, G. begins trailing the man throughout Reykjavik. What starts as an amusing tale of cat and mouse turns into a complex, introspective journey of a man struggling to complete the unfinished narrative of his own life.
Catherine Spencer was the captain of the England women’s rugby team for three years. She scored eighteen tries for England, won six of the eight Six Nations competitions she took part in, and captained her team to three championship titles, a European cup, two Nations Cup tournament victories and the World Cup final held on home soil in 2010, which thrust women’s rugby into the limelight. All of this while holding down a full time job, because the women’s team, unlike the men’s, did not get paid for their sport. Mud, Maul, Mascara is an effort to reconcile alleged opposites, to show the woman behind the international sporting success. Painfully honest about the mental struggles Catherine faced during, and after, her career as an elite athlete, it is also warm, funny and inspirational – a book for anyone who has ever had a dream, or self-doubt, or a yearning for a really good, mud-proof mascara.
Wouldn't it be useful to be able to accurately predict the weather simply by reading the clouds? Well, with this book, you can!
TV forecasts, online predictions and smartphone apps are all based on the same data – a number-crunched overview of how air pressure and temperature affect the weather across a large geographical area.
But to get an idea of how the weather will develop for the precise spot where you're standing (or walking, sailing, golfing, fishing, etc) you don't need any equipment or a wifi connection – you just need to look up.
This book will give you a broad understanding of why the clouds are symptoms of weather patterns, not causes. By reading these signs in the sky and referring to the explanatory colour photographs, you will discover exactly what those signs mean.
An at-a-glance guide to the clouds for anyone anywhere in the world, on land or at sea, this book will enable you to predict the weather by recognising cloud types, shapes, colour and behaviour. It will be an invaluable companion for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities.

This is a celebration of running - and what lots of us think about when we run. Part escape, part self-discovery, part therapy, part fitness. Part simple childlike joy of running when you could be walking.
Vassos Alexander shares the highs and lows of falling in love with running, from his first paltry efforts to reach the end of his street to completing ultra marathons and triathlons in the same weekend.
Each of the 26.2 chapters also features a fascinating insight into how others first started – from Paula Radcliffe to Steve Cram, the Brownlees to Jenson Button, Nicky Campbell to Nell McAndrew.
Also includes a foreword by Chris Evans.
Funny, inspiring, honest - the perfect read for anyone with well-worn trainers by the door (or thinking of buying a pair...)
