  • Gamle Hansen af Birgitte Lorentzen Spar 16%
    af Birgitte Lorentzen

    I de første år som professionel var Jørgen Hansen en middelmådig bokser, der ofte var udskældt i pressen, men da den ugandiske amatørverdensmester Ayub Kalule kom til Danmark i 1976, vendte karrieren. „Gamle” Hansen fandt sin anden ungdom, vandt ni europamesterskaber og rakte ud efter en VM-kamp i USA.Gamle Hansen er historien om bokseren, der fik tæsk som dreng og indimellem i ringen slog fra sig i ren angst. Oftest var han farligst, når han blev presset, men med en kompleks psyke kunne han også finde på nærmest at opgive uden kamp. Uden sin kone, Hanne, som Jørgen konsekvent kalder “Fru Hansen”, og sin bedste ven og promotor, Mogens Palle, havde Jørgen nok aldrig drevet karrieren så vidt.“De tre var en treeninghed, Mogens og Hanne lagde planerne og Jørgen udførte dem,” som vennen Hans Henrik Palm fortæller i bogen. “Uden Fru Hansen havde der slet ikke været nogen Hr. Hansen”Som 39-årig – og efter mere end tyve års gigantiske op- og nedture, skandaler, triumfer, sygdom og uhyggelige knockouts – sagde Jørgen Hansen stop. Herefter blev han i en årrække kendt som den karismatiske bartender på “Hviids Vinstue” i København. I dag har han fået konstateret demens, men langtidshukommelsen er der stadig og i selskab med Mogens Palle, Hanne Hansen, Hans Henrik Palm, Ayub Kalule, Børge Krogh og mange flere fortæller han i GAMLE HANSEN om en karriere uden sidestykke i dansk boksning.Jørgen Hansen var en ringens gentleman og det er i dette interessante spændingsfelt mellem mandens harehjerte og uventede evne til indimellem at slå knockout, at den store læseroplevelse venter. ***** VEJLE AMTS FOLKEBLAD: Slagkraftig bog om den gamle Hansen: Birgitte Lorentzens bog om den ni-dobbelte europamester, Jørgen “Gamle” Hansen er en hjertevarm fortælling, om en af dansk idræts mærkværdigeste karrierer – og en skæbnefortælling om et sårbart menneske. ***** JYDSKE VESTKYSTEN ” “Gamles” historie er ikke blot historien om en mand, der blev bokser på trods, men også dansk idrætshistorie om overgangen fra amatørsport til professionel sport og alle de sværdslag, det bragte med sig **** JYLLANDSPOSTEN “Forfatteren har skildret både Jørgen Hansens barndom, hvor han boede hos sine bedsteforældre, fordi faderen var alkoholiker, fodboldkarrieren i AIA, amatørkarrieren med 159 kampe i bokseklubberne FAK og Lindholm og karrieren som professionel, hvor hans triumfer og fiaskoer skildres med præcision og troværdighed … ”Gamle Hansen” er meget mere end en bog om boksning ***** HORSENS FOLKEBLAD“Gamle Hansen er både udgivet som både bog, E-bog og lydbog.”

  • Squared Circle af David Shoemaker Spar 24%
    - Life, Death, and Professional Wrestling
    af David Shoemaker

    A breakthrough examination of professional wrestling-its history, its fans, and its wider cultural impact-that does for the sport what Chuck Klosterman did for heavy metal The Squared Circle grows out of David Shoemaker's writing for both Deadspin, where he started the column "e;Dead Wrestler of the Week"e;-a feature on the many wrestling superstars who died too young because of the abuse they subjected their bodies to-and Grantland, where he covers the pro-wrestling world and its place in the pop culture mainstream. Shoemaker's sports writing has since struck a nerve with generations of wrestling fans who, like him, grew up worshiping a sport often derided as "e;fake"e; in the wider culture. To them, these professional wrestling superstars are not just heroes but an emotional outlet and the lens through which they learned to see the world. Starting in the early 1900s and exploring the path of pro wrestling in America through the present day, The Squared Circle is the first book to acknowledge both the sport's broader significance and wrestling fans' keen intellect and sense of irony. Divided into eras, each section offers a snapshot of the wrestling world, profiles some of the period's preeminent wrestlers, and examines the sport's influence on our broader culture. Through the brawling, bombast, and bloodletting, Shoemaker argues that pro wrestling can teach us about the nature of performance, audience, and, yes, art.Full of unknown history, humor, and self-deprecating reminiscence-but also offering a compelling look at the sport's rightful place in pop culture-The Squared Circle is the book that legions of wrestling fans have been waiting for. In it, Shoemaker teaches us to look past the spandex and body slams to see an art form that can explain the world.

  • Muhammad Ali: A Tribute to the Greatest af Thomas Hauser
    af Thomas Hauser

    Pulitzer prize nominee and William Hill award-winning writer Thomas Hauser's tribute to Ali, the greatest sporting icon the world has ever seen.Few global personalities have commanded an all-encompassing sporting and cultural audience like Muhammad Ali. Many have tried to interpret in words his impact and legacy. Now, Muhammad Ali: A Tribute to the Greatest allows us to more fully appreciate the truth and understand both the man and the ways in which he helped recalibrate how the world perceives its transcendent figures.In this companion volume to his seminal biography of Ali, New York Times bestselling author Thomas Hauser provides an updated retrospective of Ali's life. Relying on personal insights, interviews with close associates and other contemporaries of Ali, and memories gathered over the course of decades on the cutting edge of boxing journalism, Hauser explores Ali in detail inside and outside the ring.Muhammad Ali has attained mythical status. But in recent years, he has been subjected to an image makeover by corporate America as it seeks to homogenise the electrifying nature of his persona. Hauser argues that there has been a deliberate distortion of what Ali believed, said, and stood for, and that making Ali more presentable for advertising purposes by sanitising his legacy is a disservice to history and to Ali himself.Muhammad Ali: A Tribute to the Greatest strips away the revisionism to reveal the true Ali, and, through Hauser's assembled writing and hitherto unpublished essays, recounts the life journey of a man universally recognised as a unique and treasured world icon.
