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.
Available since: 02/28/2014.

    Complete with exclusive photographs and sensational backstage stories, Is Wrestling Fixed? is the much anticipated memoir from the biggest legend in wrestling fandom himself, Bill Apter
    As a kid growing up in New York in the late ’50s, Bill Apter fell in love with professional wrestling, and it wasn’t long before he was rubbing shoulders with the greats as a young reporter and photographer. Since then, he’s become the world’s best-known wrestling magazine personality, and he’s had professional and personal relationships with a who’s-who of the business, like Triple H, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Sting, and Ric Flair.
    In his fun-loving memoir, Bill Apter takes us from the dressing rooms of the Bruno Sammartino era and the last days of the territories, to the birth of WrestleMania, the emergence of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and the “Attitude Era,” to today’s WWE and superstars like John Cena, Daniel Bryan, and Roman Reigns. He also shares stories of his days photographing boxing and his interactions with stars like Muhammad Ali and other champions, and documents his appearances on the WWE Network and his work as editor of 1wrestling.com.
    Find out which wrestler threatened him, learn about the dead wrestler who was really alive, and discover how hanging out with Andy Kaufman led to the comic’s notorious feud with Jerry “The King” Lawler. Still intimately involved in the wrestling business, the award-winning Apter has a story on everybody.

    The author of The Boys of Summer writes about an array of legendary figures in this collection of essays and interviews from the late 1950s to the 1970s. “… In the end, the range, like the style, reflects myself. Let the present, then, and the recent past, the ball players, poets, policemen, professors, musicians—in short, these emperors and clowns—stride before you, each hoping, as the author does, to please.” Robert Frost, Claudio Arrau, John Lardner, Jackie Robinson, Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Leo Durocher, Bobby Thomson, Al Rosen, Jascha Heifetz, and other celebrities in their years of glory, in their times of trial. This is a book about people to be remembered, and what it was like in America at a very special time.“Beautiful…persons and events through the eyes of a sharp, articulate observer.”—New York Times “No one else has written a piece so startling about the legend of Babe Ruth…After reading this book you will never feel the same about a lot of legends…A very special book…A book to treasure.”—Chicago Sun-Times “Irresistible…You can’t stop reading!”—Chicago Tribune

    46 Things You MUST Know About...

    You see yourself playing overseas at some point, which is why you got this audiobook. Good. 
    Here, I’m sharing essential tips about playing overseas basketball that you may never otherwise have been told - until you were on the wrong end of this information (which is how I learned all this stuff). 
    Wouldn't it be much better to know some things ahead of time? 
    I created my pro basketball career after graduating an NCAA Division III school, were I was a six-foot-four power forward/center who didn’t even play on the basketball team as a senior. 
    I knew less than nothing about playing overseas when I got out of college. I went through many years and thousands of dollars of learning to know what I now share with millions of athletes worldwide. That learning, fortunately, paid off in me putting together a nine-year resume that took me through eight countries playing basketball professionally. Though it was never a perfectly smooth ride, the successes more than made up for the down times. 
    If I could do it coming from less than nothing and keep it going for nine years, you can, too. 
    You can read more about me on my website or the Overseas Basketball Blueprint course page if you wish; this audiobook is about and for you. 
    A lot of players ask me a lot of questions about how to play professional basketball abroad; this is your primer for doing just that. When you’re ready to get the full-course meal, see The Overseas Basketball Blueprint for the entire nine-module course, which covers everything in detail.
