  • Unbroken Line af Billy Joe DuPree Spar 17% E-bog Unbroken Line af Billy Joe DuPree

    The Unbroken Line is the riveting story of how truly heartless the business of professional football was and is from the poor pension plans and inadequate medical benefits to the greed of union leadership which the authors argue takes advantage of and turns its back on the very individuals who make the game great. At no time in the annals of sports has the timing of a book been more important. This unique story provides a fascinating inside look at how a group of players and one attorney strategically outwitted the NFL and the Players Union leadership to score an historic and crucial victory for players rights. The year was 1982, a few courageous men stood up to their powerful administrative adversaries when no one else would during the most turbulent time in the history of professional football. What was at stake then and now again in 2010 is the players ability to earn salaries and benefits that are in line with their contributions to their teams. The authors, former Pro Bowl tight end Billy Joe DuPree and highly respected attorney Spencer Kopf, not only reveal the successful plan that began the end of player exploitation, but they also skillfully compare the peril players faced in 1982 to the heart wrenching situations of present-day, retired union members. An SMI Book, imprint of iUniverse, Inc.

  • Go for the Green af Garry Hoyt Spar 15% E-bog Go for the Green af Garry Hoyt

    More than just a book about sailing, Go for the Green is a clarion call to bring sailing out of the doldrums and into an expanded role as a catalyst for the more environmentally sensitive enjoyment of the sea. As a former Coast Guard Officer, active racer, cruiser and yacht designer, author Garry Hoyt combines a lifetime of sailing experience, with a weather eye to uncover the new challenges of global warming and the need for energy independence. His prediction that carbon based fuels will eventually draw the same degree of social scorn that smoking now receives, creates an automatic need for ingenuity in the harnessing of sail and solar power as better alternatives for water based recreation. To encourage readers along that path, Hoyt presents a philosophy and a variety of new design solutions to stimulate more creative design development. He makes his case in a simple, readable style that will interest all those who love the sea.

    The majority of the really big bucks only come out at night. After surviving three or more hunting seasons, these whitetails have learned that it is only safe to venture forth when the cloak of darkness descends. They are the nocturnal bucks. But, just because you do not see them in the diurnal hours, does not mean that they are not around. In fact, all of us have probably walked past within a stone throw of a bedded or hidden nocturnal buck and not noticed him. There are probably huge nocturnal bucks where you hunt. However, you may not have seen them. Having harvested several nocturnal bucks in the last several years, I would like to share some insightful information with you. This book describes in detail where to find nocturnal bucks and how to kill them during the daylight hours. The revealed strategies and tactics will bring you within bow range of a nocturnal buck in the daytime. I have also included a few detailed accounts of the nocturnal bucks that I have arrowed down.

  • T'ai-Chi for Geniuses af Gene Burnett Spar 14% E-bog T'ai-Chi for Geniuses af Gene Burnett

    T'AI-CHI CHUAN is a Chinese martial art based on consciously aligning with the unforced balance of Yin and Yang energies that underlies all things. Whether or not you are interested in martial arts, T'ai-Chi principles of balance can be applied to any life activity to increase performance, efficiency, health and enjoyment. T'AI-CHI FOR GENIUSES is a practice companion, not an instructionaltraining manual. Rather than presuming that the reader is a "e;dummy"e; or "e;complete idiot,"e; author Gene Burnett asserts that there is an inner "e;genius"e; within everyone. This genius is a wellspring of intuitive knowledge vastly more intelligent than our conscious minds. Burnett encourages the reader to listen to this inner genius while he breaks down the often confusing and mysterious T'ai-Chi training into four levels of work: Bone, Muscle, Energy and Spirit. Applying these levels of work to solo form training, partner work, weapons training, and daily life, Burnett shows how you can improve the quality and clarity of your practice, eventually becoming your own teacher and student.

  • Local Sports Hero: af Jesse Newman Spar 14% E-bog Local Sports Hero: af Jesse Newman

    This book is an easy read (I deliberately chose a large font). Wesley Walker graduated high school right on the cusp of integration. Wilt Chamberlain was being aggressively recruited by the legendary Phog Allen that year. Walker, despite being a highly talented player, never played high school basketball. In the local city leagues, where he was omnipresent, he truly shined. He cosistently scored high, was a positive team player, and is fondly remembered by many from that time for generously sharing his acumen for the game. He was recruited by the Harlem Globe Trotter's farm team, the Jesters. If he had been properly "e;groomed"e; by good coaches, or recruited by the University of Kansas at that time, he might have played with Wilt Chamberlain. He should have been recruited at least by one of the Black colleges.The game was changing to a fast break one, and Walker played that kind of game. However, he went into the army instead. There he developed into quite a boxer. His development was cut short by a tragic car wreck, in which he almost lost a leg. Walker fought back, and became a wheelchair champ. In later years, he opened a local gym, and is beloved today by many who personally felt his influence.

  • Game Changer af Philip Pallette Spar 17% E-bog Game Changer af Philip Pallette

    Hank, the nimble; Hank, the quick; Hank, the human corkscrew; Hank, as fast as light; Hank, the rubber-boned man, wrote Roy Cummings after seeing a 19-year-old Hank Luisetti perform for the first time in 1936. Cummings sat alone in a deserted gym trying to describe to his readers what he had just witnessed on the basketball court. Luisetti, who learned the game to a background chorus of fog horns and gulls on San Francisco Bay, would later that year introduce New Yorks basketball legions to the jump shot. Now Philip Pallette has created a riveting account of the basketball life of this eminently shy and decent young man who transformed Stanford basketball from a group of fun-loving dabblers into national champions. The Game Changer is a book that rediscovers the long-forgotten adulation basketball fans felt for Luisetti by tracing his journey from boyhood on to becoming basketballs first matinee idol and the man who changed basketball forever.

  • Wonderful Stories from Skog Forest af George E. Peterson Jr. Spar 14% E-bog Wonderful Stories from Skog Forest af George E. Peterson Jr.

    While writing these children's books I mixed fact with fiction, reality with fantasy, and the will to overcome near-impossible problems with creative solutions. Since children need positive encouragement, optimism, hope, and, most of all - love, I've created stories using animals - who are true to their particular nature. I chose animals which children can both relate to and understand by their own unique behaviors, but sometimes with a little humor and a few unexpected happenings. Positive reading for positive readers!This first book in the Wonderful Stories from Skog Forest series is about a yearling bunny that visits a bunny feeding station built by the owner of the home, Mr. Teddy. While the bunny feeds, he is constantly on the lookout for Odin, the Fox King. One day, Odin chases the li'l bunny and instead of escaping like usual, he tumbles down a snowy hill and ends up in a giant snowball that eventually falls into the Flusse River. Li'l bunny then digs his way to the top where he meets many new friends as he floats away, but also realizes that he has injured his right ear. After a meeting with a wise blue jay, Mr. Vis, li'l bunny is convinced that his injury isn't a disability at all, but a blessing that makes him stand out in Skog Forest and leads him to great happiness. This book teaches children with injuries and disabilities that these misfortunes may bring them fortune in many different ways and not to listen to ridicule.

The writings wereinitially oriented toward the composition of a filmscript, whose purpose was todepict, abstractly, scenes common to the lives of all mankind from birth todeath.In February of 1984, well over a year into thisproject, these lyrics began to pour forth from me. Three-quarters of them were finished before the end of the month.During this period of my life, I underwent anintense conversion to purity of soul. Iimmersed myself in the practice of all the artistic mediums, including paintingand sculpture, poetry, music, dance, and drama. Striving to be an artist for Christ, my life became as a crossbetween graduate student, monk, and convict.This way of living and working continued for sevenyears and resulted in the creation of the large manuscript, Songs forChildren of Light: Ten Albums of Lyrics, Music, Dance, and Drama. In this volume, I present the lyric portionof the project with accompanying illustrations.May the Light of the Spirit be with you as you readthe words herein.James KurtJune 23, 1995

  • On Older Cats af Judith Lindley Spar 15% E-bog On Older Cats af Judith Lindley

    In the past 25 years, science has made great advancements in the field of Veterinary Medicine. Of these advancements, many benefit our feline community. Where once a cat was considered old at 6 years, with a life expectancy of 8 to 10 years, they are now able to live longer and healthier lives, many cats into their late teens.On Older Cats presents a view of the aging cat in a most unique way. Rather than being too technical, the information is given in layman language, easily understood by anyone.The book begins with the first changes you would notice, the outward appearances, then progresses to internal changes and behavioral changes. Each item discusses, from eyes and ears to respiratory system and even sleep behavior, is explained as normal functions followed by results of normal aging and expected problems. Chapter V, What You Can Do, covers everything from home care (diet and grooming to creature comforts), travel care and the most important health care for your older cat. There is also a section on alternative remedies, seldom found in other cat books. And, of course, a section on the emotional topics of euthanasia, pet loss and grieving.In a time where most shelters think of cats as old at four years, it's refreshing to find an author who feels that cats don't even reach their prime until after six years. The author has been privileged to observe many of her cats living into their late teens and early twenties. The author has taken scientific information and molded it with her hands-on experience to create On Older Cats, a book which would be a welcomed addition to any cat lovers bookshelf.

  • Ireland's Professional Amateurs af Andy Mendlowitz Spar 16% E-bog Ireland's Professional Amateurs af Andy Mendlowitz

    When American sportswriter Andy Mendlowitz took a summer vacation to Ireland, his itinerary included visiting medieval castles and drinking dark beer. He soon discovered a world where big-time sports aren't yet a business, but still a game. Ireland's rough-and-tumble pastimes of hurling and Gaelic football attract crowds of up to 80,000 fans a contest. The high-profile players, though, are amateurs. They train as professionals but must work fulltime jobs to pay the bills. The Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) also lacks free agency or trades-you simply play for your hometown team, even if you move away.Amazed by this concept, and burned out at work, Mendlowitz quit his job and moved to Ireland for eight months His aim was to get excited again by understanding what drives these athletes. Along the way, he met interesting characters and learned how the sports intersect with the ancient Irish language, burgeoning economy and the Troubles in Northern Ireland.From big cities like Belfast, Dublin and Cork to tiny rural parishes, Mendlowitz paints a vivid picture of Ireland and the joy of competing.

  • Fisherman's Prayer af Pat Neal Spar 14% E-bog Fisherman's Prayer af Pat Neal

    Pat Neal has a problem. It's not gambling, drinking, or sex. His addiction comes in the form of the salmon and steelhead that swim in the rainforest rivers of the Olympic Peninsula. As a child, he was diagnosed with a severe case of fishing attention deficit disorder (FADD), a disease that plagues him to this day. Of his fellow fishing enthusiasts, Neal notes: "e;People with fishing problems may spend inordinate amounts of time talking about their disease, even if they do show up for work. Most anglers are in complete denial over how much they spend on fishing until other members of the family start whining about food or shoes."e; Based upon the ever-popular Lord's Prayer, The Fisherman's Prayer has been reformulated for today's modern fishing conditions and is not limited to the water. The Fisherman's Prayer works on all species of fresh and saltwater game fish. Don't go fishing without a prayer!
