Summary

If you are currently or planning to sail in the Mediterranean then this book will show you the best routes to the islands, how to do it in both the fastest and easiest way plus details of all the ports and marinas you will visit together with their mooring price in high summer!

Includes distance tables, chartlets, marina/port plans and route choices - an essential planning tool.

You can easily get to the Balearics in ‘day sails’ but to Sardinia, Sicily, and the Greek Islands, a night at sea is obligatory. If you choose your weather, the warm Mediterranean nights are lovely and in summer the hours of darkness are very short, making it a really good experience. This book lists the easiest and best routes through the Mediterranean with information on the costs of berths for the night and information about the places to stop at on the way.

    The acclaimed biographer offers a social history of the poem that helped America fall in love with baseball—a lively story that “hits it out of the park” (The Baltimore Sun).    The sport that came to be known as America’s Pastime was still in its infancy when a journalist for the San Francisco Examiner wrote a ballad extolling the drama and excitement of the game. Ernest L. Thayer’s Casey at the Bat made its first appearance in the Examiner on June 3, 1888. But the immortal tale of Mighty Casey was destined to become an American phenomenon when star of the New York stage DeWolf Hopper first read it to a rapt audience at Wallack’s Theater later that year.   For the first time, John Evangelist Walsh tells the story behind the poem and its young journalist author, its unlikely journey from California to New York, and the wave of baseball mania that made it one of the most famous poems in the country. The Night Casey was Born is a portrait of America in the earliest years of its love affair with baseball.

    Desire Paths - Real Walks to...

    Unpromisingly – for a walking book – Desire Paths begins on a hospital gurney as the author prepares for open heart surgery. Thereafter, it dances back and forth in place and time between an array of obscurely connected walks that Roy has undertaken over the years. Among the book’s many characters and diversions are Wetherspoons, Capt. Picard, the Navy Cut sailor, the buried ‘Spirit of Brighton’, Wendy Craig, Harrods, Buddhism’s Six Realms of Desire, ‘Things to Do...’ tourist brochures, Argleton redux, the abyss, strip-lynchets, punk residues, Milton Keynes, multiple identities and an inkling of what the future may hold for thoughtful walkers.Each chapter starts with a quote from Phil Smith's Mythogeography, specifically from the ‘Legend’ given in that book – ‘legend’ as in a set of definitions of symbols used on maps to define landscape features. Roy uses these symbols to organise the book. The main body of each chapter is an account of a walking journey he has done. These are not chronological: structuring the book around the mythogeography Legend has (dis)organised the walks into a sequence that wanders in and out of time. Towards the end of each chapter, Roy reflects on a Landscape Feature that corresponds to the Legend – exploring the workability (or playability) of mythogeographical concepts and illustrating how they have manifested in his own walking. Finally, the Jump Over the Back Fence notes  in each chapter suggest further actual walks which readers could make.

    Taking the Field - A Fan's Quest...

    With 162 games a year, the playoffs, and an active offseason, baseball fans almost never stop thinking about their team. And Howard Megdal is no exception: a lifelong and feverish Mets fan, he has been there through thick and (more often) thin. And yet-year in and year out, the Mets seem to find ways to disappoint him. The almost-victories, the mistakes, the lost years: it's all too heartbreaking. And so, mustering his energy, heart, and sportswriter's pedigree, Megdal decided to do something about it. Like become the General Manager of the Mets. It's not an elected office, but that doesn't mean you can't campaign to do it. 
    One part baseball history and one part personal narrative, Taking the Field is at heart the story of a fan who decides to take control. Staging public rallies to gain support, and hustling for interviews and opportunities, Megdal rewrites the rules for being a fan: if you want a championship so badly, maybe it's time for more than praying at the television and buying merchandise. Maybe it's time for action. As he tells his half-crazy and half-inspiring story, Megdal intersperses the narrative with a history rooting for his team: the Tom Seaver trade, the Doc Gooden saga, the highs and lows, the mistakes, and the moments that made it worth the pain. At the same time, he learns the lessons of this history, outlining for the public his campaign pillars: logic, transparency, and passion. And he is determined to make his impact on the team. 
    This book has the unstinting passion of A Fan's Notes, the humor and business smarts of Moneyball, and the elbow-grease appeal of Julie and Julia. In the end, it's a love letter to baseball, and a totem for every tormented fan who has ever felt like a part of the game.
