Summary

A walk-through wrestling history, starting with the founding fathers such as Ed “Strangler” Lewis and the incomparable Lou Thesz, to modern-day masters such as Daniel Bryan and Kurt Angle.
		 
The Wrestlers’ Wrestlers spotlights elite performers and analyzes exactly what made them your favorite wrestler’s favorite wrestlers. Authors Dan Murphy and Brian Young interviewed more than 40 in-ring veterans, historians, referees, and promoters to get a unique insider’s look at the people who have made a lasting impact on the world of professional wrestling. It offers a special peek “behind the curtain” and a rare look into the top stars’ thoughts on their peers, their influences, and their personal favorites.
		 
The Wrestlers’ Wrestlers is a history of professional wrestling but also a tribute to the frequently misunderstood art itself. Featuring stars of the 1920s to today, this essential read deserves a prominent spot on the bookcase of every fan and historian.

    Strokes of Genius - Federer...

    The executive editor of Sports Illustrated offers an in-depth analysis and behind-the-scenes look at the historic 2008 match between tennis titans.   In the 2008 Wimbledon men’s final, Centre Court was a stage set worthy of Shakespearean drama. Five-time champion Roger Federer was on track to take his rightful place as the most dominant player in the history of the game. He just needed to cling to his trajectory. So, in the last few moments of daylight, Centre Court witnessed a coronation. Only it wasn’t a crowning for the Swiss heir apparent but for a swashbuckling Spaniard. Twenty-two-year-old Rafael Nadal prevailed, in five sets, in what was, according to the author, “essentially a four-hour, forty-eight-minute infomercial for everything that is right about tennis—a festival of skill, accuracy, grace, strength, speed, endurance, determination, and sportsmanship.” It was also the encapsulation of a fascinating rivalry, hard fought and of historic proportions.   In the tradition of John McPhee’s classic Levels of the Game, Strokes of Genius deconstructs this defining moment in sport, using that match as the backbone of a provocative, thoughtful, and entertaining look at the science, art, psychology, technology, strategy, and personality that go into a single tennis match. With vivid, intimate detail, Wertheim re-creates this epic battle in a book that is both a study of the mechanics and art of the game and the portrait of a rivalry as dramatic as that of Ali–Frazier, Palmer–Nicklaus, and McEnroe–Borg.  “Deftly touches on all the defining factors of contemporary tennis.” —San Francisco Chronicle  “Illuminates a kingdom changing hands. An engrossing book.” —Bud Collins

    Had we lived, I should have had a tale to tell of the hardihood, endurance and courage of my companions which would have stirred the heart of every Englishman. These rough notes and our dead bodies must tell the tale… 
    Extract from Scott's 'message to the public', March 1912. 
     
    The late 1890s saw the start of a 'heroic age' in polar exploration. This book tells the story of three men who were to embody the spirit of the time – driven by courage, determination and ambition, to be the first to discover the South Pole – Robert Falcon Scott, Roald Amundsen and Ernest Shackleton. 
     
    South: The Race to the Pole describes the extraordinary challenges faced and hardships endured in their attempts: 
     
        Scott's first British National Antarctic Expedition, 1901-04 
        The exploits of Shackleton's British Antarctic Expedition, 1907-09 
        The success of Amundsen's team in reaching the Pole in 1911 and the tragic events surrounding Scott's British Antarctic Expedition, 1910-13 
        Shackleton's dramatic journey to seek rescue after the destruction of his ship Endurance on the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, 1914-17 
     
    Illustrated throughout, the book contains a map depicting the routes of the various expeditions, crew lists, a selected bibliography and suggested reading, and recommended websites. This new revised edition will be thoroughly revised throughout and contain a new introduction to reflect new research and discoveries regarding these expeditions as well as more recent attempts in travelling to the Pole, in addition to containing new images from the Royal Museums Greenwich Collection.
