    Book 1: Soccer Mental Toughness The mark of the very best players is that they have the mental toughness to overcome moments of adversity. To accept that there are times when matters do not pan out as they hope, and having accepted them, move on without allowing their confidence to drop. Call it resilience, spirit, mental strength or whatever, without a doubt such a mindset is as crucial as having the skills to play at the level to which we aspire. 
    Book 2: Soccer Shooting Drills Go to almost any general compilation of clips online and the overwhelming majority will be shots – usually ones that lead to a goal. This book will provide a series of drills which will help coaches and players to become star shooters, leading to more goals, more wins and even greater joy at playing this most beautiful of games. 
    Book 3: Soccer Intelligence Intelligent people in whatever field they work know that simple works best. Soccer is, at its heart, a simple game. Pass the ball, move into space (where it is easier to control a pass and to deliver a return), move the ball on. When the chance arises, attempt to score a goal. If you are a defender, try to deny the other side space. A simple pass is easier to complete than a complex one. Intercepting the ball is easier than winning it through a tackle. Moving into space, finding a good angle and communicating well makes a pass easier to deliver for a team mate. Intelligence and simplicity are brothers to one another.

    Dorothee Haering is a photographer and owner of the graphics and marketing agency "bildhaft", in Munich, Germany. Golf has accompanied she from her cradle, and most of her family has the bug too. Her grandfather practiced enthusiastically on a chipping green in his garden, and her father, a successful team player, regularly took her with him on the golf course when she was a child. At the weekends she was a proud caddy and accompanied "her players" throughout the tournaments and also briefly took part in junior training. Ever since she saw Jack Niklaus play golf 1972 in Munich she knew: she wanted to become a Golf Professional. Later, life had other plans for her and there followed an involuntary golf-intermission lasting thirty-eight years until the golf addiction broke out again with a vengeance. Her goal for her (second) golf career: she wanted to "Break 80".
    
    In the book project "Move your Game", Dorothee Haering has gathered together the information that she would have liked to have possessed at the beginning of her own golf career. It would have made following her plan to a single handicap more efficient.

    “Map[s] the shifting definitions of gender and masculinity . . . provides the rare insight into the world of bodybuilding that only an insider could offer.” —Sport in American History   For most of the twentieth century, the “Mr. America” image epitomized muscular manhood. From humble beginnings in 1939 at a small gym in Schenectady, New York, the Mr. America Contest became the world’s premier bodybuilding event over the next thirty years. Rooted in ancient Greek virtues of health, fitness, beauty, and athleticism, it showcased some of the finest specimens of American masculinity.   Interviewing nearly one hundred major figures in the physical culture movement (including twenty-five Mr. Americas) and incorporating copious printed and manuscript sources, John D. Fair has created the definitive study of this iconic phenomenon. Revealing the ways in which the contest provided a model of functional and fit manhood, Mr. America captures the event’s path to idealism and its slow descent into obscurity. As the 1960s marked a turbulent transition in American society—from the civil rights movement to the rise of feminism and increasing acceptance of homosexuality—Mr. America changed as well. Exploring the influence of other bodily displays, such as the Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia contests and the Miss America Pageant, Fair focuses on commercialism, size obsession, and drugs that corrupted the competition’s original intent. Accessible and engaging, Mr. America is a compelling portrayal of the glory days of American muscle.  “An entertaining narrative of the bodybuilding subculture in America.” —Kirkus Reviews “Deftly written and superbly researched.” —Journal of Sport History

    Reynolds Remembers - 20 Years...

    The former NBA basketball coach and TV analyst looks back on memorable moments from the history of the Sacramento Kings. 
     
    Jerry Reynolds is an icon as the man behind the Sacramento Kings. In 2015, the Kings celebrated their 30th season in California’s capital. Jerry was quietly instrumental in the team’s growth from a shoestring operation that couldn’t compete to a model NBA franchise that is always on the short list of title contenders. He has been a first-hand witness of the league’s evolution from Bird and Magic, to Jordan, to LeBron and Yao Ming. 
     
    Jerry Reynolds was a human Swiss Army Knife—serving the Kings as a scout, assistant coach, head coach, player personnel director, general manager, and television analyst. Because he held so many positions in the Kings’ front office the last two decades, Jerry has a unique perspective on how the Kings have evolved. For those who’ve been on the Kings bandwagon only the last few years, it wasn’t always C-Webb, Peja, and Bibby. Jerry remembers the hollow feeling of putting a CBA-quality lineup on the floor for an exhibition game against the Lakers: Set for the tip-off, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and...Randy Allen? He remembers being left to explain the Kings’ latest defeat to the media while Bill Russell snuck out the side door. But there were victories, too. He also still has a spark in his eye from trading draft rights to Billy Owen for superstar Mitch Richmond. Whether the Kings were stuck in the mud or winning 50-plus games, Jerry Reynolds remained the same: colorful, outspoken, engaging, and insightful.
