Summary

The only authorized, intimate portrait of the spectacular season that saw the Kansas City Chiefs return to—and win—their first Super Bowl in fifty years. Featuring a foreword from head coach Andy Reid, and exclusive behind-the-scenes images from the Chiefs’ team photographers, this is a vivid, one-of-a-kind chronicle of the Chiefs’ march to their second world championship. In 2019, the NFL’s one hundredth season, the Chiefs once again scaled pro football’s summit, persevering through a season marked by adversity and resilience. Experience the historic journey as it has never been seen before: from the inside, through rare, on- and off-the-field photography, key never-before-seen artifacts spanning the entire campaign, and Andy Reid’s personal account of winning his first Super Bowl ring as a head coach. Chiefs Kingdom is more than a commemorative celebration of a world title; it is the epic story of a team on a mission, as a revamped defense and its new coordinator came together over the course of a long season, and the league’s most potent offense survived the temporary loss of its MVP quarterback, Patrick Mahomes.From “The West Is Not Enough” to “2-3 Jet Chip Wasp,” this lavish, handsome book documents the remarkable turn of events during the marathon regular season, as well as the unprecedented post-season run in which the Chiefs rallied from double-digit deficits in all three games. Colorful, insightful, and dramatic, Chiefs Kingdom is an absorbing account of one of the most unforgettable seasons in pro football history.

    Acclaimed baseball writer and bestselling author Roger Kahn gives us a memoir of his Brooklyn childhood, a recollection of a life in journalism, and a record of personal acquaintance with the greatest ballplayers of several eras.His father had a passion for the Dodgers; his mother’s passion was for poetry. Somehow, young Roger managed to blend both loves in a career that encompassed writing about sports for the NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, the SATURDAY EVENING POST, ESQUIRE, and TIME. Kahn recalls the great personalities of a golden era—Leo Durocher, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Jackie Robinson, Red Smith, Dick Young, and many more—and recollects the wittiest lines from forty years in dugouts, press boxes, and newsrooms. Often hilarious, always precise about action on the field and off, MEMORIES OF SUMMER is an enduring classic about how baseball met literature to the benefit of both.Praise for Roger Kahn:"As a kid, I loved sports first and writing second, and loved everything Roger Kahn wrote. As an adult, I love writing first and sports second, and love Roger Kahn even more." —Pulitzer Prize winner, David Maraniss "He can epitomize a player with a single swing of the pen." —TIME magazine "Roger Kahn is the best baseball writer in the business." —Stephen Jay Gould, New York Review of Books"Kahn has the almost unfair gift of easy, graceful writing." —BOSTON HERALD

    First published in 1896, The Game of Golf came out just as the 'fickle game that must be wooed to be won' was gaining widespread popularity across the world. Written for golfers of every ability, this 'book of instruction' covers every aspect of the game from choosing clubs and balls, through the correct stance and swing, to the secrets of putting 'off the left leg', why the well-struck shot came to be called 'a screamer' and the merits, or otherwise, of allowing sheep to graze on a golf course. 
     
    A golfing manual which has never been surpassed, this historical document from the days of cleeks, mashies and 'tackety boots' is as readable today as when it first hit the shelves. 
     
    Includes the original Laws of Golf, Rules of Etiquette, How to Play, General Remarks on the Game, Laying Out and Keeping Golf-Links, and Competitions and Handicapping, plus a glossary of terms, diagrams and illustrations. 
     
    THE PERFECT GIFT FOR EVERY GOLFER
