Summary

Many of the top world-class professional football players played Futsal in their youth – Pelé, Luis Figo,  Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Xavi and Fabregas – and have stated that playing the game made them the great players they are today. 
Futsal is an exciting, fast moving game of technique, skill, tactics and physical endeavour. Players take the ultimate challenge by testing their skills under the most intense pressure due to the lack of time and space. Coaches face huge tactical challenges as the game changes minute by minute. It is for these reasons that Futsal has taken a huge grip upon the football landscape and the development of players from grassroots upwards. This book is the ideal book to assist players and coaches in honing their futsal skills and techniques. If you want to be the new Messi, Ronaldo or Fabregas, can you afford not to read this book?

    At last, a major biography of one of golf's greatest legends. 
    Arnold Palmer changed golf--and sports--forever. The winner of more than 90 tournaments, including four Masters, the numbers on his resume don't do justice to the greatness of his achievements. Because Palmer wasn't just a golfer in the golden age of the sport, knocking heads with other greats like Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player--he also was one of the first sportsmen to understand the marketing possibilities of his, and all, sports. Forging an alliance with sports agent Mark McCormick, Palmer parlayed his brilliance on the course into deals and paydays previously unheard of, and paved the way for the multi-million dollar deals that are standard across all sports. 
    But no one ever ended up hating Palmer for being a businessman as much as a golfer--instead, he was beloved for his powerful hitting, his nerve on the greens, and his great relationships with fans, whose nickname for him ("the King") was heartfelt.  
    When Palmer died, in 2016, it was front-page news across the country. Tom Callahan knew Palmer well for many years, and has assembled, here, a trove of anecdotes and great stories from all the key people in Palmer's life. Put together, the stories tell an extraordinary sports and human story, the definitive oral biography of one of the greatest golfers ever to play the game.

    Gehrig & The Babe: The Friendship and the Feud is the emotionally gripping, electrifying account of the relationship of legendary New York Yankee icons Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth and the tragic behind-the-scenes fight that bitterly tore them apart until Gehrig was dying of a horrific disease.
     
    Written by historian and best-selling author Tony Castro, this critically acclaimed book tells their remarkable story that has often been lost between the pages of individual biographies of the American icons but here is explored in such scope and detail that the Wall Street Journal called Gehrig & the Babe "...the 'Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid' of baseball." ESPN's Jeremy Schaap called Gehrig & the Babe "a fascinating story told in full really for the first time, seventy-plus years after their death."
     
    Tony Castro, whose Mickey Mantle: America's Prodigal Son has been hailed by the New York Times as the definitive biography of the Hall of Fame legend, worked almost a decade on Gehrig & the Babe, interviewing hundreds of their surviving former teammates, associates, and friends while also extensively researching their lives in New York, Baltimore, Boston, and Los Angeles as well as studying years of newspaper accounts of the era in which they played.

    2017 marked a record-breaking year for Lewis Hamilton as he became only the fifth driver in history to win more than three World Championships, joining the motor racing greats. Through in-depth race reports and analysis from Times writers Rebecca Clancy and Mark Hughes, this unauthorised audiobook edited by Clancy will relive that achievement. 
    The list of Hamilton’s accolades is long and distinguished. The Englishman has finished on the podium in more than half of the grands prix he has contested, started on the front row more times than any other driver and is the only British quadruple world champion. 
    Such is the extent of his speed, ferocity and tactical skill on the track that the 1996 world champion Damon Hill has called him one of the greatest, most talented drivers to compete in the sport. 
    Yet despite the countless awards and records, the 2017 season was full of challenges. From extreme weather conditions in Shanghai to opening lap mayhem in Singapore, there was little opportunity to take his foot off the pedal, especially with the constant threat of Sebastian Vettel, his keen Ferrari rival. 
    Over the course of the season, The Times and The Sunday Times have followed every race, team and driver competing on the Formula One circuit. With unparalleled expertise and access, this audiobook will give a unique insight into the season, analysing Hamilton’s performance and celebrating his astonishing success.
