  • At blive den man er af Anja Andersen Spar 10% E-bog At blive den man er af Anja Andersen

    At blive den man er handler om en lille pige, der elskede at lege med en bold, men aldrig holdt sig inden for stregerne. Det er fortællingen om håndbold-ikonet Anja Andersens årelange kamp for at finde en måde at forvalte sig selv på. Om at være nationalhelt det ene øjeblik og skurk det næste. Om næsten at lade et nådesløst pres tage livet af sig. Om talrige sammenstød med trænere, dommere og spillere. Om professionel storhed og private fald. Om at opdage, at livet ikke handler om at vinde, men om en opgave større end sig selv. Om at vokse. At lukke kærlighed ind. At indgå venskaber for livet. Om tilgivelse. Og om at alt kan trænes for at blive mester i den vigtigste sport af alle – livet. Endelig er det en historie om en kvindesrejse mod at lade sin egen måde at leve på afgøre, hvem hun er. At blive den man er er bogen, hvor Anja for første gang ser sig selv og sin historie i øjnene. For hvordan kan hun vide, hvem hun er, før hun ved, hvem hun var?

  • Gul feber af MIchael Rasmussen E-bog Gul feber af MIchael Rasmussen & Klaus Wivel

    MICHAEL RASMUSSEN har fortalt myndighederne om sit eget dopingmisbrug. Og om andre rytteres. Han er efterfølgende blevet kaldt stikker – af folk, som samtidig hævder, at de ønsker en ren sport. Holdningen synes at være, at man skal fortælle alt, men endelig ikke det hele.Argumentet er lige så korrupt som cykelsporten selv, men symptomatisk for en sportsgren, hvor rytterne bliver stigmatiseret, ligegyldigt hvad de gør. Holder de kæft, er de løgnere, der dækker over doping og ødelægger sporten. Går de til bekendelse, bliver de også kaldt løgnere og udstødt af cykelverdenen. MICHAEL RASMUSSEN har besluttet sig for at gøre op med tavshedskulturen. Kun den egentlige fortælling kan bringe cykelsporten videre.Nu er han klar til at fortælle sin historie.

  • Tværs over Atlanten af Mads Vangsø E-bog Tværs over Atlanten af Mads Vangsø

    Hvad får en mand midt i 40'erne til at beslutte sig for at ro over Atlanterhavet i en lille båd sammen med en god ven?Det svarer den tidligere radio- og tv-vært Mads Vangsø på i TVÆRS OVER ATLANTEN. I vinteren 2018-2019 deltog han i verdens hårdeste ro-konkurrence, hvor deltagerne ror næsten 5.000 kilometer fra De Kanariske Øer til Caribien, og bogen følger den udmarvende rejse via dagbogsoptegnelser.TVÆRS OVER ATLANTEN er samtidig Mads Vangsøs personlige fortælling om at stoppe op midt i livet og ønske sig noget helt andet - uden at vide præcis, hvad det er. Foreløbig har den rejse taget ham til ørkenløb i Sahara, fået ham til at lede efter løbende munke i Japan, sendt ham på jagt efter en gammel ven i Canadas vildmark - og nu altså tværs over Atlanterhavet.

  • Messi vs. Ronaldo  af Luca Caioli Spar 19% E-bog Messi vs. Ronaldo af Luca Caioli

    Siden 2007 har Lionel Messi og Cristiano Ronaldo udkæmpet en kamp om at være verdens bedste fodboldspiller. I den spanske liga og i Champions League stod de i mange år i spidsen for to af verdens største klubber FC Barcelona og Real Madrid. De klassiske opgør mellem FC Barcelona og Real Madrid har siden 2009, hvor Ronaldo skiftede til Real Madrid, ikke blot været en magtkamp mellem de to hold, men også en magtkamp mellem de to rivaliserende stjerner. Igennem ti år vandt Ronaldo og Messi på skift Ballon d’Or-trofæet - en helt enestående periode, som der først blev sat punktum for i slutningen af 2018, da kroaten Luka Modric brød sejrsrækken og vandt trofæet. Bogen giver et spændende indblik i de to stjerners op- og nedture både som fodboldspillere og privatpersoner. På landsholdsniveau har ingen af dem opnået den allerstørste triumf, nemlig at vinde VM, men på klubplan har de slået alle rekorder, og at deres indbyrdes rivalisering er uden sidestykke i fodboldhistorien kan der næppe sås tvivl om. Men det store spørgsmål, som alle fodboldelskere har diskuteret i årevis, stiller vi stadig: er det den lille, argentinske driblekonge Messi med de mange mål og assists, der er verdens bedste? Eller bliver han slået på målstregen af den ofte kampafgørende portugiser Ronaldo med den formidable sparketeknik og en evne til nærmest som en gud at svæve i luften i hovedstødsdueller?

  • Åge indefra af Arild Stavrum E-bog Åge indefra af Arild Stavrum

    Åge Hareide sagde engang, at han glædede sig til et liv uden fodbold. Kort efter blev han træner. Flere gange har han kvittet jobbet, men hver gang er han vendt tilbage for at vinde nye mesterskaber og triumfer. Og hver gang med held. Han kan ikke slippe det, han er Skandinaviens mest vindende træner, og han har prøvet det meste på sin vej. I 80’erne som knogleknusende forsvarer på det norske landshold og i engelsk fodbold, hvor det gik ud over legender som Kevin Keegan og Ian Rush. Og som ung træner i indædt kappestrid med Nils Arne Eggen, Rosenborgs store maestro, og Egil ’Drillo’ Olsen.I Danmark kender vi ham som manden, der ’hjalp’ os til VM i 1986, sagde op i Brøndby og kvalificerede landsholdet til VM i Rusland. Den fulde historie er både lang og bumlet og fyldt med venner og fjender, had og kærlighed. Åge er bag den hyggelige facade en hård hund, og få har mærket det som forfatteren af denne bog, Arild Stavrum, der spillede under ham i flere sæsoner. Det er en historie om skideballer på størrelse med Alex Fergusons berømte hårtørrer, en vindervilje grænsende til det brutale, men også om stor sårbarhed og menneskekundskab. ÅGE favner det hele. Når du lærer ham at kende INDEFRA.

  • Et glimt af sjælen - Fra elitesoldat til eventyrer af Nicolai Moltke-Leth E-bog Et glimt af sjælen - Fra elitesoldat til eventyrer af Nicolai Moltke-Leth

    Den tidligere jægersoldat, Nicolai Moltke-Leth, kan slet ikke lade være med at opsøge eventyret. Spænding og udfordringer har alle dage været hans drivkraft.I "Et glimt af sjælen" beretter han levende om trangen til at udfordre sig selv, og vi følger ham ud i den afrikanske vildmark, op i Himalayas bjerge, gennem Saharas ørken, til Tyrkiet, Argentina og Tibet, når han sammen med det første danske hold gennemfører nogle af verdens hårdeste udholdenhedskonkurrencer."Følelsen af at få del i noget større, når man står på en bjergtop eller ligger og kigger op i en afrikansk stjernehimmel, giver rejsefeber." – Hjalte Tin, PolitikenNicolai Moltke-Leth (f. 1970) er tidligere jægersoldat, men han er også kendt som sociolog, foredragsholder og sportsudøver. Han udgav i 1996 bestselleren "Jo, du kan" om livet i Jægerkorpset – en bog der er dedikeret frihedskæmperen Anders Lassen. For de penge, der kom ind ved salget af bogen stiftede Nicolai Moltke-Leth Anders Lassen Fonden, som belønner betydningsfulde, militære indsatser og humanitært arbejde.

  • Allan Simonsen - nærbillede af en stjerne af Frits Ahlstrøm E-bog Allan Simonsen - nærbillede af en stjerne af Frits Ahlstrøm

    Det er blevet sagt om Allan Simonsen, at han ligner en gøgeunge, der ikke har fået sin levertran. Han ser heller ikke ud af så meget. Men den mindste er blevet en af de største i international fodbold. Fra at være slave under Hennes Weisweiler, træneren, der foretrak diktatur med sig selv som diktator, udviklede han sig til superstar.Allan Simonsen er totalt upåvirket af sin succes i en branche, hvor risikoen for en tragedie er større end chancen for en triumf. I sin optræden uden for banen er han stadig den beskedne, nærmest selvudslettende fyr, som holdkammeraterne føler trang til at beskytte. Til gengæld skånes han ikke på banen, hvor han konstant er i fare for at blive sparket til invalid.Frits Ahlstrøm giver i denne bog et levende og dybtborende signalement af Allan Simonsen. Bogen giver besked om hans karriere, om hans dagligdag som professionel, om hans mange triumfer på banen – og om mennesker bag stjernen.Frits Ahlstrøm (f. 1945) var i mange år sportsredaktør på Politiken og Alt om Sport. Senere skiftede han spor og blev informationschef i DBU og sportschef i Brøndby. Frits Ahlstrøm er desuden kendt som medkommentator til VM-fodboldkampe på DR TV og var i mange år tilknyttet UEFA og FIFA.

A coal miner from Bakerton, Pennsylvania, Donatelli served his country as a tail gunner aboard a B-17 and found his lifes calling in the bleak con?nes of a Nazi prison camp. When Army Air Corps Sta? Sergeant Donatelli umpired softball games to boost morale for his fellow airmen at Stalag Luft VI, little did he know he was taking ?edgling steps towards becoming one of the most respected umpires in baseball history.

    For years, Robert B. Kieding has shared his nautical knowledge with the residents of Santa Barbara, California, in his weekly column in the Santa Barbara News-Press. Now, with Scuttlebutt: Tales and Experiences of a Life at Sea, he brings his wit and wisdom to people across the country and around the globe. At sea, the scuttlebutt was a cask with an opening called a scuttle, around which crewmembers would gather and chat when weather or the captains law allowed. It functioned in much the same manner as our modern-day office watercolora place to share and exchange workplace chatter and stories of dubious provenance. Eventually, the term scuttlebutt came to mean shipboard rumors or gossip. In this tradition, Scuttlebutt covers a wide range of marine-related topicseverything from boating history to sage seafaring advice to humorous personal anecdotes. Kiedings warm and engaging writing style and his obvious love of all things nautical will make this collection appeal to boaters and land lovers alike.

  • November Ever After af Craig T. Greenlee Spar 17% E-bog November Ever After af Craig T. Greenlee

    The legacy of the Marshall players who perished transcends wins and losses. Their tragic deaths squashed the likelihood of a bloody race riot on campus. The evening of November 14, 1970 was damp and chilly with a steady drizzle and dense fog. Students at Marshall University had no idea that the nights horrific events would change their lives forever. On this night, a plane crash wiped out most of the schools football team. Unless you were there, you could never fully comprehend the gravity of grief that engulfed Huntington, West Virginia, in the days following the worst aviation disaster in the history of American sports. I know. I was there. Ill never forget. It could have been me on that plane. I played football at MU for two seasons. A year before the tragedy, I left the team for personal reasons. When the school began the daunting task of resurrecting its football program in the spring of 71, it was a no-brainer decision for me to rejoin the team and become part of the rebuilding process. Media projects devoted to the plane crash provide well-deserved notoriety. Still, there are glaring omissions. Now, for the first time, former Marshall defensive back Craig T. Greenlee tells the real story the whole story about Thundering Herd football from back in the day.

  • Taste for Speed af John Joseph Kelly Spar 17% E-bog Taste for Speed af John Joseph Kelly

    Bill Braden was the nephew of Harry Greening, Canada's first great raceboat driver in the 1920s. Born in Hamilton, Ontario, he lived there for many years before moving to nearby Waterdown, Ontario, near the start of W.W. II. He always had 'a taste for speed', purchasing his first motorcycle, an Ariel, in England at age 19, and going on to motorbike across war-threatened Europe in 1935. For the rest of his life, he kept fast and fancy cars around his house and reveled in their ownership. During World War II, he volunteered for the Canadian Army and became a Major in the Royal Canadian Ordnance Corps, and served in Canada, as well as in England and Northwest Europe from 1941-1945. For a decade after the war, he established himself as the top speedboat driver in Canada. He drove his own 'Ariel' boats in competitions both in Canada and the United States. His reputation was such that in 1951, when Colonel Gordon Thompson of London, Ontario, purchased 'Miss Canada IV' and renamed her 'Miss Supertest', he hired Bill Braden to drive the boat. This began a five year relationship with the Thompson family, which culminated in the 1956 Harmsworth Trophy challenge, where for the first time, a Canadian boat captured one heat off of the American boat, and where Bill Braden proved his courage while almost dying behind the wheel of his hydroplane. The story had a sad ending two summers later, when Will returned to boat racing, and was killed in a freak accident while competing for the Duke of York Trophy on Fairy Lake at Huntsville, Ontario. He left behind a widow and six young children, as well as a sterling legacy that has survived five plus decades of scrutiny.

    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.

  • Face of Courage af Tommy Watson Spar 16% E-bog Face of Courage af Tommy Watson

    Tommy Watson grew up in the Five Points area of Denver, Colorado, a crime-ridden neighborhood with gang violence, drugs, and poverty. Living in this type of neighborhood creates numerous obstacles and challenges for young African-Americans; however, Tommys biggest challenges were confronted behind closed doors. Many negative influences insidiously crept into his home. Throughout his childhood, both of his parents were addicted to heroin, shoplifted, and neither had a legal means of employment. As a result, family life for Tommy and his siblings was quite chaotic, and the children often found themselves unsupervised and uncared for. They often lived in foster homes, shelters, motel rooms, and with family and friends. In part due to the help of others and in part through his own personal drive, Tommy was able to avoid the traps of drug addiction and gang affiliation that eventually consumed the lives of some of his siblings. In spite of some negative classroom experiences, he persevered, graduated from high school, and earned an athletic scholarship to play Big Ten football for the University of Minnesota. Watson is now a principal in the Minnesota school system, a motivational/keynote speaker and a consultant.

    I maj 2018 kastede bjergbestigeren Jakob Urth sig ud i et vovestykke af en anden verden, da han med livet som indsats begav sig mod toppen af Mount Everest uden brug af ekstra ilt. I denne enestående og hudløst ærlige beretning guider Jakob Urth læserne 8.848 meter op mod den iskolde tinde, der alene i år har kostet syv mennesker livet – dramaet blev i øvrigt fulgt af TV 2’s kamerahold til en spændende dokumentarserie.I bogen kommer Danmarks dygtigste bjergbestiger desuden ind på andre togter til legendariske bjerge i godt otte kilometers højde, ligesom han humoristisk fortæller om sit eventyrlige liv som guide i nogle af klodens fjerneste afkroge. Glæd dig til en åndeløst spændende fortælling af en eliteidrætsudøver, der ikke er som andre.

  • My World af Peter Sagan E-bog My World af Peter Sagan

    From 2015 to 2017, Peter Sagan achieved the seemingly impossible: he won three road race World Championships in a row, ensuring his entry into the history books as one of the greatest riders of all time.But to look at Peter s record in isolation is to tell only a fraction of his story, because Peter doesn t just win: he entertains. Every moment in the saddle is an opportunity to express his personality, and nobody else has succeeded in making elite cycling look so much fun. From no-hands wheelies on the slopes of Mont Ventoux to press conference mischief with clamouring journalists, Peter exudes a passion for the sport and a lovable desire to bring smiles to the faces of his fans.So, for the very first time, you will have the opportunity to glimpse behind the scenes of Peter s world. You will discover the gruelling training programmes necessary for success, and how Peter copes with the pressure of high expectation. You will feel that sense of elation when crossing the line ahead of the pack, and moments of desperation, like in 2017 when Peter realised he wouldn t be allowed to challenge for his sixth Tour de France green jersey. But what better tonic than to ensure a third year in rainbow an achievement which may never be repeated again.
