Summary

Imagine you’re on a road trip somewhere in the middle of nowhere – no towns for miles, it’s nighttime, and there is no cell service. Suddenly, your GPS fails. You didn’t print out directions. All you have in your glove compartment is a map and a compass. What would you do?
 
Captain Robert R. Singleton explains the not-so-complicated science of simple navigation. Starting from the absolute basics, “You’ll Never Get Lost Again” can teach even the most directionally-challenged how to find their way to any destination with little more than a compass, a map, and a sense of adventure. 
 
This book uses simple, easy-to-understand instructions, real-life exercises, detailed diagrams, and straightforward explanations to guide any beginner to a better understanding of basic navigation while also reminding the advanced navigator of the importance of simple concepts in an important science. 
 
By the time you’ve finished “You’ll Never Get Lost Again”, you’ll have the confidence to know that, as long as you understand the basics, you can find your way to any destination in the world – from the grocery store around the block to the far reaches of the great-untamed wilderness.  
 
The world is yours for the navigating.

    The Armchair Olympian - How Much...

    Billed as the greatest sporting show on earth, the Olympic Games have produced countless memorable stories of achievement and endurance since entering the "modern" era in 1896. 
     
    The major sports take a back seat - some of them long gone from the schedule - as sports fans discover new heroes excelling in obscure events that intrigue. 
     
    The Games deliver triumph and heartbreak, serial winners and one-medal wonders, shocks and controversies - and tragedy in the true sense of the word rather than the often diluted sporting interpretation. 
     
    For just over two weeks every four years handball and hockey, sailing and shooting, judo and gymnastics become prime time news. And the word "repechage" is common currency. 
     
    The Armchair Olympian uses trivia, teasers, illustrations and quotes to recapture the magic of the story so far.

    In his illustrious career as a cartoonist for the New Yorker and other publications, Joseph Farris has created dozens of hilarious cartoons about “the best game in the world at which to be bad.”A.A. Milne had it right, and Farris’s cartoons get to the heart of the game’s wonderful contradiction: over the course of eighteen holes, golf has the capacity to bring great joy and drive you crazy.Farris treats us to the sight of a blissfully happily newlywed with “Just Married” emblazoned on the back of his golf cart; of an archaeologist who discovers a hieroglyph featuring an annoyed-looking pharaoh breaking a golf club over his knee; and a TV-watching husband who rebuffs his naked wife’s amorous advances in no uncertain terms: “Not now, I’m watching Tiger Woods.”It’s been said that real golfers don’t cry.  That may or may not be true.   Joseph Farris’s cartoons are sure to make any golfer laugh.

    pbiA pioneering and beloved Canadian legend comes to life/b/i/p
    pFather David Bauer changed lives — at the rink, in the classroom, and at the pulpit. Bauer’s dream created the first truly national Canadian hockey team. In 1963, that unique group represented Canada abroad and were committed to both country and to Father Bauer. Whether shepherding the hockey program at St. Michael’s College in Toronto or the men’s national team out of the University of British Columbia, Bauer was both spiritual leader and trailblazer./p
    pThrough exhaustive research and countless interviews, author Greg Oliver explores a Canadian icon, the teams that he put on the ice, and the rocky, almost unfathomable years of the 1970s when Canada didn’t play international hockey. Finally, for the first time ever, the whole story of Father Bauer’s critical importance to Canada’s game is told in the rich detail it deserves, and a beloved icon is celebrated for his contributions to our nation’s sporting history./p

    In a new book entitled The Irish Soccer Split, Cormac Moore provides the most comprehensives analysis on the reasons why we have division in soccer in Ireland today unlike in sports such as rugby and cricket. Soccer in Ireland was governed for the whole island from 1880 until 1921 under the auspices of the Irish Football Association (IFA). The Leinster Football Association seceded from the parent body in 1921 and formed the Football Association of Ireland (FAI). Although politics played its part in fomenting the rupture, a power struggle was at the heart of the split in Irish soccer. Utilising an extensive array of primary sources and contemporary newspaper reports, Moore shows that the main reason why soccer became and remained divided in Ireland was due to Leinster’s refusal to being governed from Belfast. It was felt the IFA was biased towards teams from Belfast, it rarely chose Dublin over Belfast as a venue for internationals and the IFA council and its sub-committees were dominated by representatives from the North-East. Once soccer was divided, genuine attempts were made in the 1920s and early 1930s to bring about a fair settlement. They all broke down as the IFA was unwilling to concede too much control to the nascent body and the FAI was opposed to accept anything other than total quality on everything to do with soccer on the island.
     
    The book recounts the FAI’s attempts to gain international recognition from the British associations and FIFA in the early 1920s, attempts that were far more fruitful with the latter body than the former bodies who stood steadfastly by the IFA. The FAI was unable to secure any international fixture against England, Scotland or Wales until 1946, when an FAI-selected international team played England for the first time. The book also compares soccer to most of the other major sports who remained or became united after partition and analyses why soccer took such a different course.
     
    No serious attempts were made from 1932 to the 1970s to bring about a settlement between the IFA and FAI. As Northern Ireland was engulfed in the Troubles, a series of conferences were held to heal the division between the two bodies, prompted by international stars such as George Best who wanted one international team for Ireland at the very least. For the first time, the story of these efforts, carried out against the backdrop of violence in Northern Ireland, is revealed.
