Summary

Audrey Hunt hopes to make her mark on the world. Armed with her masters in broadcast journalism, she applies for a position as an investigative field reporter in her hometown of Philadelphia, which would allow her to do just that. Instead, Audrey finds herself in Columbus, Ohio, covering the NHL's Blue Jackets. At first, she thinks that the job is a joke; however, she quickly discovers that there's more to hockey than scoring goals and more to sports reporting than talking stats. With the support of the players on the team—including lots of help from the superstar captain Nathan Fox—Audrey searches for her niche as a sports journalist for Ohio Sports Network and finds out more about herself along the way.

    One of The Times' 50 Greatest Sports Books 
     
    In May 1977, the cricket world awoke to discover that a thirty-nine-year-old Sydney Businessman called Kerry Packer had signed thirty-five elite international players for his own televised 'World Series'. The Cricket War is the definitive account of the split that changed the game on the field and on the screen. 
     
    In helmets, under lights, with white balls, and in coloured clothes, the outlaw armies of Ian Chappell, Tony Greig and Clive Lloyd fought a daily battle of survival. In boardrooms and courtrooms Packer and cricket's rulers fought a bitter war of nerves. 
     
    A compelling account of the top-class sporting life, The Cricket War also gives a unique insight into the motives and methods of the man who became Australia's richest, and remained so, until the day he died. It was the end of cricket as we knew it – and the beginning of cricket as we know it. 
     
    Gideon Haigh has published over thirty books, over twenty of them about cricket. This edition of The Cricket War, Gideon Haigh's first book about cricket originally published in 1993, has been updated with new photographs and a new introduction by the author.

    How To Hit A Bull´s Eye In A Day With The Royal Discipline Of Archery
     
     
     
    “An archer cannot hit the bullseye if he doesn't know where the target is.” 
     
     
     
    Did you ever wish you could shoot arrows like Robin Hood, Hawkeye or Katniss Everdeen?
     
     
     
    Whenever you watch the Lord of the Rings, you imagine how powerful it must be to step in the shoes of Legolas...
     
     
     
    ...face your target 
     
    ...draw back your bow 
     
    ….and just shoot.
     
     
     
    Yet, you push the thought into the corner of stupid childhood dreams, knowing archery is just for entertaining movie scenes.
     
     
     
    You are wrong.
     
     
     
    The medieval way of hunting turned into a royal discipline for everyone who wants to improve their confidence and become quicker than the fastest animal in the world.
     
     
     
    Yes, your laser-sharp focus could even help you catch a cheetah.
     
     
     
    Yet, archery is much more than just a safari hunt.
     
     
     
    Archery was one of the first disciplines in the Olympic games and the latest gold medal winner Ku-Bon-Chan proves why it is a tough sport that needs practice and the right strategy.
     
     
     
    Becoming the next Legolas requires much more than randomly picking an arrow from your quiver.
     
     
     
    And even if you just want to rediscover your inner child, it is much more fun to shoot arrows in the woods if you know how to hit your target.
     
     
     
    No one wants to miss their goal. 
     
     
     
    Good thing, if you follow this simple but effective plan to get to the next level, you can improve your skill set within just one practice.
     
     
     
    How many times have you started on something and given up within a week because you got frustrated?
     
     
     
    A lot of people share this story. They start a new thing without any knowledge and expect themselves to be perfect within the first couple of shots.
     
     
     
    Perfection might never be possible in the golden sports of archery. Yet, you can instantly succeed and hit your first target if you know how.
     
     
     
    In “Archery”, you´ll discover:
     
     
     
    - How to start your Legolas journey and bring Lord of the Rings into reality

    And much more.
     
     
     
    No matter if you want to go at your own pace and enjoy some exercise or if you want to become an Olympian. If you want to increase confidence, focus and quick response time, archery is your sport.

    Forget hurrying. Forget putting your foot down and racing through sweeping bends. Forget the understeer (whatever that is). Forget the blur of a life lived too fast. This is a look at taking life slowly. It's about taking the time to enjoy journeys and places for their own sake. It's about stopping and putting the kettle on. Stopping to take a picture. Stopping to enjoy stopping. 
     
    How are you going to do it? In a camper van or a motorhome, of course.  
     
    In this book we define the best driving routes around Scotland for camper vans and motorhomes. We show you the coolest places to stay, what to see, what to do and explain why it's special. We meander around the highlands, lowlands and islands of Scotland on the most breathtaking roads, chugging up mountain passes and pootling along the coast. We show you stuff that's fun, often free. We include the best drives for different kinds of drivers; for surfers, wildlife watchers, climbers and walkers. We include the steepest, the bendiest, those with the most interesting bridges or views or obstacles, ferries and tidal causeways. And you don't even have to own a camper van or motorhome – we'll tell you the many places you can rent one to take you on the journey. 
     
    All of this is interspersed with beautiful photos, handy maps and quirky travel writing from the king of camper vans and motorhomes, Martin Dorey. So if all you want to do is flick through it on a cold day and plan your next outing, you'll be transported (albeit slowly) to pastures, beaches, mountains and highways that make you want to turn the key and go, go, go!  
     
    We'll take you to see Scotland the slow way. The way it should be seen.
