    ‘This day we were going to let the horses go. They’d been working for a while and it was their turn to have a spell. Old Alf Turner came down there watching the blokes tying their horses’ legs up. And he seen me get my horse and bring him up – just drop the reins on the ground and the horse waiting down there while I went and got the hammer and the chisel and the rasp to just pull the shoe off. 
    Then he seen me pick the horse’s leg up – pick it up and just hold it while the horse was standing there. And he was thinking, ‘Hey, what’s this bloke! Hey! He should tie his legs up.’ And he called out to me, ‘Hey! He might turn and kick you!’ 
    ‘No,’ I said. ‘He be right.’ 
    And I just took the horse’s shoe off and he just standing there with his head down and I was there holding his leg up. Old Alf Turner got the biggest shock and he gave me the job of breaking horses after that, because the other blokes’ horses still wild. They can’t touch a horse or the horse would kick them or something. But mine, mine were just quiet with me straightaway. That’s why he gave me the job breaking in horses. Horses – I got to like horses.  
    They liked me, the horses, straightaway.’ 
    His former jockey, and later boss, Ian Rankin, once called Marty Dodd ‘the kindest man who ever lived’. This is Marty Dodd’s remarkable story, told in his own words. 
    ‘As an Anangu child who was forcibly removed and as a parent who single-handedly parented seven children, Mr Dodd fought the odds to become the winner of horse races and an even bigger winner in life.’ – Dr Irene Watson, Tanganekald woman, lawyer, activist and academic 
    ‘From exploitation to independence – a story of resilience that needed to be told. Marty Dodd’s experiences and philosophy make a worthwhile addition to the growing literature of Aboriginal autobiography.’ – Christobel Mattingley, AM, DUnivSA, editor/researcher of Survival in Our Own Land

    The author of THE TAO OF CHIP KELLY returns with deep insight into the mind of one of the NFL’s most innovative and increasingly controversial coaches.
    The 2014 off-season saw the excitement of Chip Kelly's NFL debut turn ugly fast. Before his second training camp even opened, the coach abruptly cut DeSean Jackson, his popular and explosive wide receiver, who signed with division rival Washington. Reporters wondered whether Kelly was built for the NFL, whether the offensive schemes that dominated the college game could work in the pros, and whether he had the fortitude to handle the media.
    Kelly responded to his critics by navigating crippling injuries and a fractious locker room to lead the Eagles to a 9-3 record. Then they lost three straight games, a collapse fueled by DeSean Jackson's revenge and, perhaps, Kelly's own stubbornness. Still, the Philadelphia Eagles, with Chip Kelly at the helm, continue to implement a strategy that goes beyond the X’s-and-O’s and into the very fabric of the organization.
    Mark Saltveit, the author of THE TAO OF CHIP KELLY, illuminates the strategies and philosophies of Chip Kelly in the nitty gritty stories of one NFL season, featuring characters such as Murderleg, Johnny Manziel, and Bryan Braman, the ex-model who grew up homeless and tackled a Titans punt returner head first—without a helmet. As Kelly continues to reinvent the game of football itself with insights from the Navy Seals, rugby stars, and silly movies, CONTROLLED CHAOS is essential reading for any gridiron fan.

    Even today none of us takes the decision lightly to leave our family and friends and go and try our hand in another country. But if we do; thanks to those who have gone before us, there is often a community ready and waiting to help us out on our arrival.  
    All over Europe, Irish ex-pats are playing Gaelic football, sometimes along with locals or with other ex-pats from Australia and America. A whole network of GAA clubs has sprung up across the continent and they even have their own administrative structure, the European County Board, affiliated to the GAA. 
    Philip O’Connor’s marvellous book is an account of one year in the life of one player and one club in one country. You wouldn’t normally associate the GAA with Sweden or with continental Europe generally but it’s there, wherever there are Irish exiles to nurture it – in parishes far from home.

    This account of how one of America’s most beautiful golf resorts came to be is “a narrative gem” (James Dodson).   On a wild, windblown bluff high above the Pacific sits one of America’s premier golfing destinations, Bandon Dunes. Golf enthusiast Mike Keiser had the dream of building this British-style “links” course on a stretch of Oregon’s rugged coast—and Dream Golf is the first all-inclusive account of how he turned his passion into reality.   This revised and expanded edition takes another look at Bandon Dunes and introduces readers to Old Macdonald, a new course that provides golfers with a more rugged, untamed version of the game, named in honor of Charles Blair Macdonald (1856–1939), the father of American golf course architecture and one of the founders of the US Golf Association. This fourth course, designed by renowned golf course architect Tom Doak along with Jim Urbina, brings visitors back to the true origins of the sport—and Dream Golf is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at how this special spot became a destination for golfers everywhere.

    In a one of a kind look at the Toronto Blue Jays 2013 season, two seasoned sports journalists take readers behind the scenes as the team stocks up on stars, revitalizes its fans and embarks on a campaign of shocking disillusionment. Great Expectations begins with a detailed look at how general manager Alex Anthopoulos pulled off the blockbuster trade that acquired flashy shortstop Jose Reyes, potential pitching ace Josh Johnson and steady left-hander Mark Buehrle. Then came the delicate, frenzied negotiations with the Mets that landed erudite knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, the National League's Cy Young Award winner in 2012. The book examines the challenges that Reyes, Buehrle and Dickey faced in their formative years and during the rocky 2013 season. It is also replete with details about Brett Lawrie, the team's lone Canadian, whose kinetic style of play is a double-edged sword; José¡‚autista, the two-time home-run champion whose crown began to slip during a difficult 2013 season; Munenori Kawasaki, the genial, quirky infielder who became an overnight fan favourite; and Anthopoulos himself, who, by season's end, was inciting the fury of the same fans who had praised him as a genius a few months earlier. Featuring insightful analysis and a colourful collection of candid photos, Great Expectations is a fascinating tale of a season gone wrong.
