    ENTERTAINING AND REVEALING 
    In this frank and inspiring memoir, Neven talks about his early life, and his extraordinary success as a rugby player. A lock and number eight, Neven represented Wellington at a provincial level, before achieving the ultimate in New Zealand rugby—wearing the revered All Black jersey. His contemporaries included Tiny White, Don Clarke, Wilson Whineray, Kelvin Tremain, Colin Meads and Ian Clarke. 
    But this is not just a memoir of rugby achievements; Neven talks frankly about the difficulties in his life ‘when the crowd stops roaring’ and the reality away from the rugby field. There are immense challenges, including being charged by New Zealand Police for theft, a suicide attempt, and his battle with alcoholism. 
    But there is also hope, triumph and new beginnings in this candid memoir, with Neven going on to give back and help numerous others who have lost their way. 
    PRAISE FOR WHEN THE CROWD STOPS ROARING 
    “ For a start he was so big! He towered over most of his teammates and opponents and as each game and season unfolded he expanded his talent into that of a true international rugby player.” ~KEITH QUINN

    The ultimate reference for Bruins fans—history, records, photos, and more. 
     
    Every year from 1919 to today, UCLA has fielded a team, and though the expectations have changed through the years, the goals have not. The single greatest goal in sports is to win your next game. When a team strings enough wins together, a magical season is born. In the UCLA Football Encyclopedia, Spencer Stueve doesn’t miss a beat in his coverage of all the magical seasons, as well as the not-so-magical seasons, from the inaugural one through 2017.  
     
    He covers the UCLA coaches, as well as the players who have left a lasting legacy. Along the way, he captures the details about the wins, the losses, the individual and team records, the assistant coaches, and the players that built the foundation of the program. The story of UCLA football is often a story of “almost,” and in this book, you’ll relive the times UCLA simply refused to settle for “almost.”  
     
    These tales feature legends Fred Cozens, Red Sanders, Tommy Prothro, Jim Mora, and countless other Bruins stars, past and present. Stueve also recounts the upbringing of Donn Moomaw and that of Maurice Jones-Drew. Complete with dozens of historical photographs, this is the most extensive book ever written on UCLA football and a must-read for every fan.

    “A superbly researched and engagingly written biography” of NASCAR legend Curtis Turner, known as the Babe Ruth of stock car racing (Sports Illustrated).   Curtis Turner’s life embodied everything that makes NASCAR the biggest spectator sport in American history; the adrenaline rush of the races, the potential for danger at every turn, and the charismatic, outrageous personality of a winner. Turner created drama at the racetrack and in his personal life, living the American Dream several times over before he died a violent and mysterious death at the age of forty-six.   In gripping prose, and with access to the files of Turner’s widow, sports writer and author of NASCAR Generations Robert Edelstein offers the first complete chronicle of Turner’s life. From his days as a teenage moonshine runner in Virginia, through millions earned in fearless finance deals, to his incredible comeback after four years of being banned from the NASCAR circuit, Full Throttle lets you ride shotgun with the legend.
