Summary

Making advanced stats simple, practical, and fun for hockey fans
 
Advanced stats give hockey’s powerbrokers an edge, and now fans can get in on the action. Stat Shot is a fun and informative guide hockey fans can use to understand and enjoy what analytics says about team building, a player’s junior numbers, measuring faceoff success, recording save percentage, the most one-sided trades in history, and everything you ever wanted to know about shot-based metrics. Acting as an invaluable supplement to traditional analysis, Stat Shot can be used to test the validity of conventional wisdom, and to gain insight into what teams are doing behind the scenes — or maybe what they should be doing.
 
Whether looking for a reference for leading-edge research and hard-to-find statistical data, or for passionate and engaging storytelling, Stat Shot belongs on every serious hockey fan’s bookshelf.

    Reminiscent of Phil Jackson’s SACRED HOOPS, Tamir Goodman’s Triple Threat explores physical, mental, and spiritual lessons, on and off the court.Tamir Goodman was dubbed “The Jewish Jordan” by SPORTS ILLUSTRATED  for the unorthodox combination of basketball prowess and devout faith that he brought with him onto the court as a top-ranked high school recruit, D-I and professional basketball player.  Goodman’s book features practical basketball training tips, strategies to contend with the mental side of the game, and game-like scenarios to demonstrate how this advice will pay off on the court.The book also takes readers on a fascinating journey through Goodman’s career, a highlight of which includes Goodman making history as the first Jewish player to play D-I and professional basketball while wearing a yarmulke and refraining from playing on the Jewish Sabbath.By weaving the hands-on advice with the intriguing personal stories, Goodman examines the basketball fundamentals of shooting, ball-handling and passing from the physical, mental and spiritual perspectives and assigns each of these moves a deeper meaning. Goodman uses examples from his career to make the point that adding an individualized spiritual element to physical and mental training can help athletes take their game to the next level, while also helping them to identify and achieve meaningful success on the court and in life.  "The nickname 'Jewish Jordan' might roll off the tongue, but Tamir Goodman's journey to realize his basketball dreams was no breeze. I thoroughly enjoyed reliving all the twists and turns through HIS eyes—one of the finest sportsmen and ambassadors that our people have ever known – in this captivating book."—Marc Stein, ESPN NBA Reporter"… an inspiring book with expert basketball advice that is great for players of all levels."—Omri Casspi, Small Forward for the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers“… a fascinating look at one man's talents on the court, in his soul, and with an ultimate higher purpose. This book is for anyone interested in the skills of serious sportsmanship and the nuances of living an integrated and rich religious life. Tamir takes the concept of athleticism as a meaningful pursuit to the highest and most profound level. What a wonderful, joyful and superbly elegant exploration into the worlds of sports, religion, and life's purpose.”—Mayim Bialik, Ph.D., CLEC, Actress—The Big Bang Theory"As a DC area native, I have crystal clear memories of the Jewish Jordan phenomena and the national attention his story created. While he was obviously an exceptional basketball player, it was his unparalleled commitment to his faith that made him so impressive. This book is a refreshing look at what it takes to be successful on and off the court. It is a must read for all players and coaches. I couldn't put it down."—Alan Stein, Professional Basketball Strength & Conditioning Coach "I have had the honor and privilege of watching Tamir Goodman conduct a basketball camp for children, so I have seen him put these words into action. For all the wonderful advice included in Triple Threat, it is his combined love affair with basketball and Judaism, and his spiritual devotion to both that stands out for me. His playing career was far too short, but his passion for his game—and his God—endures.''—Mary Schmitt Boyer, sportswriter and President of the Professional Basketball Writers Association

    A Ringside Affair - Boxing’s...

    James Lawton

    For three decades at the end of the twentieth century – throughout boxing's most engrossing era – James Lawton was ringside, covering every significant bout, spending time with the likes of Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Tommy Hitman Hearns, Roberto Duran, Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield and many other great fighters. 
     
    Lawton found himself captivated by the sport as he followed it around the world. From a big fight's initial announcement, through the fighters' punishing training regimes, the overblown press conferences and dramatic weigh-ins, up to the bout itself and its savage fall-out – Lawton observed and absorbed it all, grateful for the remarkable access he was afforded. He witnessed Ali screaming in pain for his dressing-room lights to be turned out after a fight; he was there to meet Tyson at the prison gates on his release in 1992; he listened as former champions wept while struggling to find their new place in the world. As part of a small, tight-knit group of sportswriters with the privilege of covering each fight in such intimate detail, Lawton formed lifelong friendships and found himself forever altered by being caught up in the whirlwind of a sport at its most spellbinding. 
     
    A Ringside Affair brings that brilliant epoch back to life – and puts it in the perspective it deserves. It salutes the epic quality of boxing's last years of glory, retraces arguably the richest inheritance bequeathed to any sport, and speculates on the possibility that we will never see such fighting again. It is part celebration, part lament, but perhaps most of all it is a personal record of some of most enthralling and challenging days produced by the world's oldest sport.
