Summary

At a time when there were no easy guides to turn to for experience in British sports, The Classic Guide to Cycling was an imperative and insightful glance into its history and benefits when first written, thanks to the dedication of the Rt-Hon. Earl of Albemarle and G. Lacy Hillier. A cyclist enthusiast, not only did the Earl coin the name for the National Cyclists' Union, but was also its president, demonstrating his keen knowledge and experience as an avid sportsman.As Lacy Hillier remarked, 'No history of cycling in the future will be complete which does not do full justice to the efforts of the late Earl of Albemarle to further the interests and the well-being of the sport.' With original illustrations, this updated version of The Classic Guide to Cycling is a must for any bike enthusiast.

    New York Times Bestseller: This true Depression-era story of a down-and-out fighter’s dramatic comeback is “a delight” (David Halberstam).    James J. Braddock was a once promising light heavyweight. But a string of losses in the ring and a broken right hand happened to coincide with the Great Crash of 1929—and Braddock was forced to labor on the docks of Hoboken. Only his manager, Joe Gould, still believed in him.   Gould looked out for the burly, quiet Irishman, finding matches for Braddock to help him feed his wife and children. Together, they were about to stage the greatest comeback in fighting history. Within twelve months, Braddock went from being on the relief rolls to facing heavyweight champion Max Baer, renowned for having allegedly killed two men in the ring. A brash Jewish boxer from the West Coast, Baer was heavily favored—but Braddock carried the hopes and dreams of the working class on his shoulders, and when he emerged victorious against all odds, the shock was palpable—and the cheers were deafening. In the wake of his surprise win, Damon Runyon dubbed him “Cinderella Man.”   Against the gritty backdrop of the 1930s, Cinderella Man brings this dramatic all-American story to life, telling a classic David and Goliath tale that transcends the sport.   “A punchy read with touches of humor.” —The New York Times   “A wonderful, thrilling boxing story, and simultaneously a meticulous look at Depression life.” —Jimmy Breslin
