    If “Top Gun: Maverick” or “Ford Versus Ferrari” kept your attention, “Go! The Bettenhausen Story” will keep you riveted.  What prompts these men to climb into small spaces and propel themselves at death defying speeds?  Subtitled “A Race Against A Dream,” this audiobook attempts to answer that question through the eyes of the Bettenhausen family, one of the greatest racing families in the history of the sport of automobile racing.  Whether a casual or passionate racing fan, you’ll be fascinated at the closeup of the racing industry as this book chronicles its growth from the 1930s to the 1980s through the eyes of patriarch Tony Bettenhausen and his three racing sons as they conduct “A Race Against A Dream.”As the author Carl Hungness writes, “It’s not the win at Indy the racers want, it’s the challenge.  The way of life.  It’s the feeling that can’t be conveyed until it’s experienced.  What makes the breed of man they call a race car driver tick?  Some respect them and others pity them.  Don’t pity them; they’ve seen the consequences.  They all think they’ll beat the odds.  For some, driving in the race is living and everything else is just waiting.  They’re more alive inside the car than out of it.”A very small percentage of humans will experience the peril and thrill of the Indy 500, an annual spectacle that fuels the dreams of men and women alike seeking the thunderous adrenaline rush that the race provides.  This audiobook dares to drive you close to experiencing “the aura surrounding the fervor for driving a race car.”  Buckle up- it’s quite a ride.

    A “fascinating and irresistible” blend of science and sports that reveals what a baseball (or bat, or player) in motion does—and why (The New York Times Book Review). 
     
    How fast can a batted ball go? What effect do stitch patterns have on wind resistance? How far does a curveball break? Who reaches first base faster after a bunt, a right- or left-handed batter? The answers are often surprising—and always illuminating. 
     
    This newly revised third edition considers recent developments in the science of sport such as the neurophysiology of batting, bat vibration, and the character of the “sweet spot.” Faster pitchers, longer hitters, and enclosed stadiums also get a good, hard scientific look to determine their effects on the game. 
     
    Filled with anecdotes about famous players and incidents, The Physics of Baseball provides fans with fascinating insights into America’s favorite pastime.

    In this searing and riveting New York Times bestseller, Olympic gold medalist Dominique Moceanu reveals the dark underbelly of Olympic gymnastics, the true price of success…and the shocking secret about her past and her family that she only learned years later.At fourteen years old, Dominique Moceanu was the youngest member of the 1996 US Women’s Olympic Gymnastics team, the first and only American women’s team to take gold at the Olympics. Her pixyish appearance and ferocious competitive drive quickly earned her the status of media darling. But behind the fame, the flawless floor routines, and the million-dollar smile, her life was a series of challenges and hardships.Off Balance vividly delineates each of the dominating characters who contributed to Moceanu’s rise to the top, from her stubborn father and long-suffering mother to her mercurial coach, Bela Karolyi. Here, Moceanu finally shares the haunting stories of competition, her years of hiding injuries and pain out of fear of retribution from her coaches, and how she hit rock bottom after a public battle with her parents.But medals, murder plots, drugs, and daring escapes aside (all of which figure into Moceanu’s incredible journey), the most unique aspect of her life is the family secret that Moceanu discovers, opening a new and unexpected chapter in her adult life. A mysterious letter from a stranger reveals that she has a second sister—born with a physical disability and given away at birth—who has nonetheless followed in Moceanu’s footsteps in an astonishing way.A multilayered memoir that transcends the world of sports, Off Balance will touch anyone who has ever dared to dream of a better life.
