Summary

A candid behind-the-scenes look at the business of sports from the athlete-turned-agent and author of Back from the Edge. 
 
A lot of mystery surrounds sports agents and their roles in the lives of their high profile clients. Many imagine a glamorous existence of spending time with celebrities and earning lots of money for doing easy or very little work. The Life of a Sports Agent reveals how very wrong this perception is. 
 
Having been a top sports agent for nearly a decade, with clients such as James Anderson, Sam Quek, Nile Wilson, James Taylor, and Simon Mignolet, Luke Sutton has an incredible insight into the world of sports management across a number of areas. In his new book, Luke reveals stories and personal experiences about the sporting stars he has encountered, both the good and bad, and his very honest opinions about them, and offers a true look into how this mysterious industry works.

    Pittsburgh Pirates manager Clint Hurdle was old school and stubborn. But after 20 straight losing seasons and his job on the line, he was ready to try anything. So when he met with GM Neal Huntington in October 2012, they decided to discard everything they knew about the game and instead take on drastic "big data" strategies.Going well beyond the number-crunching of Moneyball, which used statistics found on the back of baseball cards to identify market inefficiencies, the data the Pirates employed was not easily observable. They collected millions of data points on pitches and balls in play, creating a tome of reports that revealed key insights for how to win more games without spending a dime. They discovered that most batters struggled to hit two-seam fastballs, that an aggressive defensive shift on the field could turn more batted balls into outs, and that a catcher's most valuable skill was hidden. Hurdle and Huntington got to work trying to convince the entire Pirates organization and disgruntled fans to embrace these unconventional yet groundbreaking methods. All this led to the end of the longest consecutive run of losing seasons in North American pro sports history.The Pirates' 2013 season is the perfect lens for examining baseball's burgeoning big-data movement. Using flawless reporting, award-winning journalist Travis Sawchik takes you behind the scenes to reveal a game-changing audio-book of miracles and math.A Macmillan Audio production.

    2 April 2011. After 28 years, the cricket World Cup returned to India when Dhoni's boys beat Sri Lanka on a day that ended in a shower of champagne and confetti. They had started the tournament as favourites, but in the early stages had appeared shaky. Then came the turning point. India were a more purposeful side in the knockout stage, their fielding and bowling efforts now on par with the batting. Led by their captain cool, India took on Australia in Ahmedabad, Pakistan in Mohali and then Sri Lanka in Mumbai with a palpable belief in their own ability. It meant they beat all the former champions. Suresh Menon, easily one of India's best cricketwriters, relives the roller-coaster that was the 2011 World Cup, taking us through the highlights, the disappointments and doubts as well as the triumphs. From Virender Sehwag's boundary off the first ball of the World Cup to Dhoni's final six to the transformation of Yuvraj Singh, it's all here. A running commentary as well as a historical document of one of India's sporting epics.

    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.

    There are two titles in this book, which are these: 
      
    Book 1: This book covers a range of topics that don’t seem to be related at first, but if you look closer, you’ll see the bigger picture. All of these topics are more or less connected to the idea of fending for yourself, being able to survive off the grid, or in case of a major disaster. 
      
    The first chapter focuses on something specific: Survival in the jungle. As we all know, the jungle is beautiful but also infested with bacteria, bugs, venomous and predatorial animals, and full of both toxic and edible plants. Learning what to do there can make all the difference if you were ever to make it through in such a climate. 
      
    After this, the book highlights what to do in case of a hurricane or an earthquake, two disasters that could very well happen in many people’s areas. 
      
    Book 2: Is being able to focus really that important to your happiness? 
      
    Yes, it is. And in this book, I will explain more of the reasoning behind this. You will also learn more about different methods to improve your focus, practical techniques to prioritize better and quicker, and how to avoid diversions that will keep you from making your dreams a reality.
