    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.

    More and more women and girls are discovering the joy and relishing the fierce competition of team sports. Their increasing participation in sports is influencing all aspects of women’s—and men’s—lives. Playing Like a Girl explores the ramifications of this sports revolution, such as the change in male-female relationships, the impact on women in the workplace, the long-term effects of Title IX, and the phenomenon of men coaching women. These ideas are explored through stories of women from grandmothers playing basketball in the Senior Olympics, to working women who get up before dawn to row on the Potomac River. Robert Lipsyte, writing in The New York Times, said, “For a wider look at the obstacles and opportunities facing the emergent female athlete, read, Playing Like a Girl.” Jo A. Hannafin, MD, PhD, founder of the Women’s Sports Medicine Center Hospital for Special Surgery and team physician, U.S. Rowing Team, called the book, “A wonderful compilation of personal stories and hard facts, which provide compelling evidence for the power of team sports in the development of strong and successful women.

    The 2016 edition of the New York Times Bestselling Guide
    
     
    Welcome to The Show! After 20 All-Star seasons, the creators of this, the 21st edition of the industry-leading Baseball Prospectus annual, could have been content to rest on their laurels. Instead, Baseball Prospectus 2016 contains significant improvements along with the usual key stat categories, player predictions and insider-level commentary that readers expect from Baseball Prospectus’ annual guide. 
    
    
     
    Baseball Prospectus 2016 once again provides fantasy players and insiders alike with prescient PECOTA projections, which Sports Illustrated has called “perhaps the game’s most accurate projection model.” Still, stats are just numbers if you don’t see the larger context, and Baseball Prospectus brings together an elite team of analysts to provide the definitive look at all thirty teams—their players, their prospects and their managers—to explain away flukes, hot streaks, injury-tainted numbers and park effects.
    
     
    Nearly every major-league team has sought the advice of current or former Prospectus analysts, and readers of Baseball Prospectus 2016 will understand what all those insiders have been raving about.
    
     
    In a book that sports personality Ken Tremendous calls “The tip of the nerd spear,” the team at Baseball Prospectus is proud to bring the following improvements to the 2016 Annual:
    
     
    Two full years of projections­—PECOTA lines for 2016 and 2017
    
     
    Historical Peak MPH added for major-league pitchers
    
     
    Deserved Run Average (DRA) added for major-league pitchers
    
     
    cFIP added for major-league and minor-league pitchers
    
     
    Pitcher WARP redesigned, utilizing DRA and cFIP for all pitchers
    
     
    Revised cFIP-driven PECOTA pitching projections
    
     
    Catcher-specific defensive stats for all catchers Double-A and above
    
     
    Outfield assists and catcher defense integrated in FRAA and WARP

  • Exploring the Southern Appalachian Grassy Balds - A Hiking Guide - cover

    “Treeless wonders” of the Southern Appalachians, grassy balds have long baffled scientists and enchanted outdoor enthusiasts. They exist as open spaces, often grassy meadows, found on or near the summits of mountains that are technically below the tree line. Are they artificial, the result of climate change, or something else entirely? While no one knows for sure, their natural beauty is undeniable. This book tells the story of these unique ecosystems and offers enthusiasts a guide to nineteen representative hiking trails across three states: Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
    
    Each season on the balds ushers in something special: 360-degree views on clear, crisp days in winter, a blanket of wildflowers across the mountaintops in spring, Catawba rhododendron and flame azaleas in early summer, and blueberries galore in the fall. But these unusual places are also under threat. The balds with their adjacent habitats host more than thirty plant and animal species that are endangered or threatened with many rapidly succumbing to new tree growth.
    
    Unique among hiking guides, this book is divided into two parts. Part 1 focuses on the balds collectively, with chapters on Native American legends and origin theories, European settlement and the effects of grazing, and efforts to preserve and maintain the balds in the face of environmental disruption. One chapter highlights the flora and fauna of the balds. Part 2 describes the hikes, each offering a unique experience, from the majestic wild ponies of Mount Rogers to the amazing pioneer history of Hooper Bald.
    
    This is the first guidebook to focus exclusively on the southern Appalachian grassy balds. The trails are organized into five geographic areas, with complete descriptions, maps, photos, and historical tidbits. At once a reference work and field guide, this book will encourage outdoor enthusiasts not only to experience the balds but to gain new appreciation for efforts to preserve and maintain these natural wonders.
