    Huge boys, huge dreams, huge success—how one family from Buffalo put five boys on the track to realizing their athletic potential and making it “big.”   “The beauty of Growing Up Gronk is that you never really have to grow up at all. A fascinating look inside a larger-than-life football family.” —Dan Shaughnessy, bestselling author of Francona: The Red Sox Years   It is so statistically unlikely as to be almost unbelievable. Somehow, the Gronkowski family has produced three sons who play in the NFL (Rob, Chris, and Dan), one who was drafted into Major League Baseball (Gordie Jr.), and another who is the starting fullback for Kansas State (Goose). Their father, Gordy, even played college football for Syracuse.   How did it happen? From an early age, Gordy realized the potential his sons had and worked with them to make the most of it. Beyond their monstrous size, physicality, and raw talent, he instilled in them a commitment to fitness, health, drive, and determination that would give his boys a leg up in ways other families simply couldn’t match. And the boys’ motivation certainly wasn’t something solely triggered by a driven father. They were like a pack of adolescent wolves readying themselves for the recruiting hunt. Still, all were honor roll students; the three oldest earned college degrees. Each was motivated and inspired by his brothers. Competition and bragging rights were—and continue to be—a big part of what makes the Gronkowskis tick. Growing Up Gronk reveals the secrets to the Gronkowskis’ astonishing collective success while opening the door to a lively, entertaining, one-of-a-kind household.

    Seventeen-year-old Amir Khan became Britain's youngest Olympic boxer since 1976 when he won silver at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. He turned professional in 2005, winning his first pro fight last summer in 109 seconds, and has remained unbeaten ever since. 
     
    His fights are now regularly shown on ITV, who are scheduling boxing again for the first time in ten years. Tickets to his fights sell out in hours and he commands a TV audience of six or seven million viewers for every fight. Emerging as the posterboy for British multiculturalism and an important role model for Asian youngsters, Amir is loved in the press from the Observer Food Monthly to Nuts magazine. 
     
    A Boy from Bolton, Amir's autobiography, will tell the story of a boy who Don King has compared to Sugar Ray Robinson, but who still lives at his mum and dad's semi-detached in Bolton with his sister and two kid brothers. A boy who fasts in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, even when he has a major fight the next day, and can sometimes be spotted helping out on the till at Moods Fast Food, his uncle and auntie's curry house in Bolton, if they're having a busy night ... 
     
    Ghostwritten by Kevin Garside, sports reporter for the Telegraph and the Mirror.

    Sailors are a notoriously superstitious lot - even if some won't admit it. Years of taking to the water, at the mercy of uncontrollable (and sometimes deadly) forces, have led even the wisest to seek ways of influencing the gods or fate. From bad omens and odd rituals to lucky tokens and forbidden words, the superstitions of the sea are legion. 
     
    Many of these superstitions have refused to go away and quite a few have entered the general public consciousness. Some are amusing in their own right, others have fascinating origins, whilst for many there are bizarre anecdotal incidents which would appear to lend credence to these arcane beliefs. 
     
    Illustrated with quirky cartoons, this book explores nautical superstitions from all over the world in an informative yet entertaining way. 
     
    Includes superstitions about: Boatbuilding, naming and launching; Lucky and unlucky dates to sail; People, things and animals not to let on board; Signs and portents at sea; Words not to say (and their alternatives); Predicting the weather; Fishing; and much, much more!

    For over two centuries, it's been what Walt Whitman called "our game". It's America's favorite pastime, our national preoccupation. It's more than a game, more than a sport. It's who we are as a people, as a culture. But where did baseball come from?      As baseball entered a new century, it became more poular than ever. All across the country, fans streamed to the ball parks. Along with this new popularity came a new breed of baseball hero. Men like John McGraw, Christy Mathewson, Johnny Evers and Three-Finger Brown.      America enjoyed the wild ride of the Roaring Twenties, but on October 29th, 1929, Wall Street crashed and America slid headlong into the Great Depression. Several teams, including the Boston Braves, The Phillies and the Cincinnati Reds, nearly folded.      After the Miracle Mets took the 1969 World Series in one of the greatest surprises in sports history, you'd think baseball would become more popular than ever. But the seventies were a trying time for the sport. As we take you through the eighties, you'll learn how the Curse of the Bambino was finally broken.
