    John Feinstein's illuminating recollections from two decades of interviews with sports legends. John Feinstein's career is a sports fan's dream-a lifetime of encounters with the great figures in sports, not just on the field, but in the locker room and behind the scenes with legends like Bob Knight, Dean Smith, Mike Krzyzewski, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, and John McEnroe. Since his days as a young Washington Post journalist, Feinstein has written twenty-eight books and countless magazine articles and newspaper columns, covering college basketball, golf, tennis, baseball, and very nearly every sport in between. He has told us of victory and defeat, of athletes and coaches we love--and love to hate. But some of his best stories have been left untold, until now. One on One is an incredible portal into the sports we love-from the box scores and the pageantry of game night and into the hard work and intensity that turn players and coaches into legends.

    The twentieth anniversary edition of the acclaimed memoirist’s masterpiece of Montana fly fishing with a new preface by the author—“I love Nick Lyons’s books” (Ted Hughes).   The Spring Creek river in central Montana is where you’ll find trout as long as your arm—trout that are exceedingly difficult to catch. Master fisherman Nick Lyons is all-too-familiar with the river’s secrets and is ready to confront its greatest challenges. At first, he catches only a few fish. But, over time, he acquires the skills and discipline necessary to take the large wary brown trout of the defiant river.   Novelist Craig Nova says Spring Creek conveys “the magic that always exists between somebody who loves fishing and a particular piece of water that endlessly lives up to its end of the bargain.” Called Lyons's masterpiece, it is a book all fishermen will cherish.

    Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics presents the Relative Performance Grading (RPG) system of statistical measures, which ends all arguments over how good college football teams are relative to one another. Using grammar school mathematics and a dash of ingenious reasoning, Mike Nemeth exposes the need for, and then invents, a new set of statistical measures to explain how and why one team wins and another loses a college football game. The new statistics assign a numerical grade to the playing performances of both winners and losers, just as a student receives a numerical grade on a school test. The grades in this RPG system replace won/lost records and differentiate well-played wins from ugly wins and well-played losses from ugly losses. RPG accurately ranks college football teams according to how well they’ve played the game, i.e. how good a team they are (and, NOT how good their record appears to be).

    "If you breathe and have a pulse, you NEED this book." -Cody Lundin Cody  Lundin, director of the Aboriginal Living Skills School in Prescott,  Arizona, shares his own brand of wilderness wisdom in this highly  anticipated new book on commonsense, modern survival skills for the  backcountry, the backyard, or the highway. It is the ultimate book on  how to stay alive-based on the principal of keeping the body's core  temperature at a lively 98.6 degrees. In his entertaining and  informative style, Cody stresses that a human can live without food for  weeks, and without water for about three days or so. But if the body's  core temperature dips much below or above the 98.6 degree mark, a person  can literally die within hours. It is a concept that many don't take  seriously or even consider, but knowing what to do to maintain a safe  core temperature when lost in a blizzard or in the desert could save  your life. Lundin delivers the message with wit, rebellious humor, and  plenty of backcountry expertise. Cody Lundin and his Aboriginal  Living Skills School have been featured in dozens of national and  international media sources, including Dateline NBC, CBS News, USA  Today, The Donny and Marie Show, and CBC Radio One in Canada, as well as  on the cover of Backpacker magazine. When not teaching for his own  school, he is an adjunct faculty member at Yavapai College and a faculty  member at the Ecosa Institute. Cody is the only person in Arizona  licensed to catch fish with his hands, and lives in a passive solar  earth home sixty miles from Prescott, Arizona.

    In his illustrious career as a cartoonist for the New Yorker and other publications, Joseph Farris has created dozens of hilarious cartoons about “the best game in the world at which to be bad.”A.A. Milne had it right, and Farris’s cartoons get to the heart of the game’s wonderful contradiction: over the course of eighteen holes, golf has the capacity to bring great joy and drive you crazy.Farris treats us to the sight of a blissfully happily newlywed with “Just Married” emblazoned on the back of his golf cart; of an archaeologist who discovers a hieroglyph featuring an annoyed-looking pharaoh breaking a golf club over his knee; and a TV-watching husband who rebuffs his naked wife’s amorous advances in no uncertain terms: “Not now, I’m watching Tiger Woods.”It’s been said that real golfers don’t cry.  That may or may not be true.   Joseph Farris’s cartoons are sure to make any golfer laugh.
