Summary

Whether you are hunting small game or caribou, clay pigeon shooting or target pistol shooting, SAS and Elite Forces Guide: Sporting Guns is a comprehensive introduction to the major gun types used for sport. Wildfowling, clay pigeon shooting, Cowboy Action Shooting, hunting game, target shooting, tracking deer… Gun sports come in many different forms, and the weapons needed to pursue these sports are equally varied—over-and-under shotguns, air rifles, target pistols, spring guns, pump shotguns, bolt-action rifles, and semi-automatic weapons.

    “A compelling, long overdue tribute” to America’s first tennis star from the renowned sportswriter and author of Everybody’s All-American (Kirkus Reviews).   When he stepped onto the Wimbledon grass in 1920, Bill Tilden was poised to become the world’s greatest tennis star. Throughout the 1920s he dominated the sport, winning championship after championship with his trademark grace, power, and intelligence. He owned the game more completely than Babe Ruth ruled baseball, making his name, for more than a decade, synonymous with tennis. Phenomenally intelligent—he completed his first book on tennis in the three weeks before his first Wimbledon triumph—Tilden’s success came with a dark side. This classic biography by legendary sports writer Frank Deford tells of Tilden’s dominance, which was unlike anything the sport had ever seen—and the big man’s tragic fall.

    Plump, grumpy, slumped on the couch, and going nowhere fast at age 16, Phil Gaimon began riding a bicycle with the grand ambition of shedding a few pounds before going off to college. He soon fell into racing and discovered he was a natural, riding his way into a pro contract after just one season despite utter ignorance of a century of cycling etiquette. Now, in his book Pro Cycling on $10 a Day, Phil brings the full powers of his wit to tell his story.
    
    Presented here as a guide - and a warning - to aspiring racers who dream of joining the professional racing circus, Phil's adventures in road rash serve as a hilarious and cautionary tale of frustrating team directors and broken promises. Phil's education in the ways of the peloton, his discouraging negotiations for a better contract, his endless miles crisscrossing America in pursuit of race wins, and his conviction that somewhere just around the corner lies the ticket to the big time fuel this tale of hope and ambition from one of cycling's best story-tellers.
    
    Pro Cycling on $10 a Day chronicles the racer's daily lot of blood-soaked bandages, sleazy motels, cheap food, and overflowing toilets. But it also celebrates the true beauty of the sport and the worth of the journey, proving in the end that even among the narrow ranks of world-class professional cycling, there will always be room for a hard-working outsider.
