A Swing You Can Trust
UK Simon & Schuster
2007 0743298284 / 9780743298285 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket 23.8 x 19.4 x 1.6 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: Through his golf clinics for amateurs and his seminars for teaching and tour professionals held around the world, Roberto Borgatti has become famous for improving the technique and scores of every player. Now he passes his sensational method on to readers with A Swing You Can Trust. Like an individual private lesson from Borgatti himself, this easy-to-follow guidebook helps players to understand and execute the fundamental elements of the golf swing. Borgatti leads students through exercises they can practice right in their own living rooms, gyms, and back yards - wherever and whenever they have a few moments of spare time. From the fundamentals to the short game and preparing to play, Borgatti provides step-by-step instruction along with clear illustrations as he combines sound methodology, fitness training, and state-of-the-art analysis technology to create a comprehensive approach to the game. The secret to Borgatti's unique approach is helping players master four key fundamentals: movement, set up, turn, and weight shift - fundamentals that are essential to every type of swing.By mastering the lessons Borgatti provides in this radically new approach, anyone - from the beginner to the professional, man or woman - can improve his or her game, one swing at a time. : Review: "I've never seen an instructor turn a beginner into a 15-handicapper and a 15-handicapper into a single-digit golfer as quickly and joyfully as Roberto Borgatti. This book is the total package -- the ultimate bible for both the novice and the very serious golfer. More than just the fundamentals (which you get in a clear and very understandable way), this book makes sense of all those frustrating elements in golf that seem counterintuitive to those of us who have struggled through lesson after lesson and book after book."-- Ken Baron, contributing writer and former executive editor of "Golf Connoisseur" magazine Size: 23.8 x 19.4 x 1.6 cm. 288 pages.

A Walk In The Woods, Bryson, Bill

A Walk In The Woods
UK Black Swan
1998 0552997021 / 9780552997027 First Edition Softcover Fair Condition 12.7 x 2.2 x 19.8 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: The longest continuous footpath in the world, the Appalachian Trail stretches along the East Coast of the United States, from Georgia to Maine, through some of the most arresting and celebrated landscapes in America.: At the age of forty-four, in the company of his friend Stephen Katz (last seen in the bestselling Neither Here nor There), Bill Bryson set off to hike through the vast tangled woods which have been frightening sensible people for three hundred years. Ahead lay almost 2,200 miles of remote mountain wilderness filled with bears, moose, bobcats, rattlesnakes, poisonous plants, disease-bearing tics, the occasional chuckling murderer and - perhaps most alarming of all - people whose favourite pastime is discussing the relative merits of the external-frame backpack.: Facing savage weather, merciless insects, unreliable maps and a fickle companion whose profoundest wish was to go to a motel and watch The X-Files, Bryson gamely struggled through the wilderness to achieve a lifetime's ambition - not to die outdoors. : Amazon Review: Bill Bryson has made a living out of travelling and then writing about it. In The Lost Continent he re-created the road trips of his childhood; in Neither Here nor There he retraced the route he followed as a young backpacker traversing Europe. When this American transplant to Britain decided to return home, he made a farewell walking tour of the British countryside and produced Notes from a Small Island. Once back on American soil and safely settled in New Hampshire, Bryson once again hears the siren call of the open road--only this time it's a trail. The Appalachian Trail, to be exact. In A Walk in the Woods Bill Bryson tackles what is, for him, an entirely new subject: the American wilderness. Accompanied only by his old college friend Stephen Katz, Bryson starts out one March morning in north Georgia, intending to walk the entire 2,100 miles to the trail's end atop Maine's Mount Katahdin. : If nothing else, A Walk in the Woods is proof positive that the journey is the destination. As Bryson and Katz haul their out-of-shape, middle-aged bodies over hill and dale, the reader is treated to both a very funny personal memoir and a delightful chronicle of the trail, the people who created it, and the places it passes through. Whether you plan to make a trip like this one yourself one day or only care to read about it, A Walk in the Woods is a great way to spend an afternoon. --Alix Wilber : Review: "Choke-on-your-coffee funny" (Washington Post): "This is a seriously funny book" (Sue Townsend The Sunday Times): "Short of doing it yourself, the best way of escaping into nature is to read a book like A Walk in the Woods... Mr Bryson has met this challenge with zest and considerable humor... a funny book, full of dry humor... the reader is rarely anything but exhilarated" (The New York Times): "Entertaining and often illuminating" (Paul Johnson Sunday Telegraph): "Irreverent, wildly funny, crowded with anecdotes and observation" (Ideal Home) Size: 12.7 x 2.2 x 19.8 cm. 368 pages.

Blackwood On Bidding : Dynamic Point Count, Blackwood, Easley

Blackwood On Bidding : Dynamic Point Count
UK Eyre & Spottiswoode
1957 First Edition Softcover Good Condition 8 inches tall by 5.25 inches 
?The Blackwood slam bidding convention is known and used by bridge players all over the world. This famous authority now puts forward, in Blackwood on Bidding, a completely new system of evaluating bridge hands. Blackwood on Bidding covers every conceivable bidding situation. For instance, the Blackwood Dynamic Point Count is the most precise method in existence for making overcalls. Previous systems have been, often admittedly, unreliable guides for take- ? out doubles, penalty doubles, pre-emptive bids and, particularly, overcalls. The Blackwood method is a dependable guide. Dynamic Point Count gets its name because of its revaluation feature. Every player knows that the initial valuation of a hand is affected by the subsequent bidding of the other players and the distribution their bidding reveals. It is not static. With Dynamic Point Count, before your second or subsequent bid, you can recount your hand making specific allowance in terms of points for the information revealed by the other bids. These are only some of the many features that make Dynamic Point Count an advance on any previous point-count method, and a big one. There will be a strong trend to Blackwood's Dynamic Point Count. Players who like to win will all be using it.? Book - in Good card covers - some browning and marking to the card covers and rubbing to the spine edges. Contents, clean, bright and tightly bound. Size: 8 inches tall by 5.25 inches. "xiv, 215 ". Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Sports & Pastimes; Britain/UK; Paperback A135-1103 0.32

Book of Card Tricks : For Drawing Room and Stage Entertainments, Kunard Professor R

Book of Card Tricks : For Drawing Room and Stage Entertainments
UK Macmillan & Burns & Oates
Hardcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket 7.5 inches tall by 5 inches 
For Drawing Room and Stage Entertainments. Undated but appears to be circa 1900.184 pages with an index. Illustrated with black and white line drawings. PREFACE. In offering this collection of Card Tricks to the public it has been my endeavour to make every particular as clear as possible to the uninitiated. It will readily be granted that practical illustration must be vastly superior to the most carefully-written description of anything- which, at the same time, requires both rapidity and neatness in execution; yet it appears to me that, if in the following pages I have been successful in making the most intricate trick clear in the manner of its manipulation, proper practice for the acquirement of ease and certainty will do the rest. There are a number of tricks which I have purposely omitted, mostly on account of their transparency; but to make up for such deficiency I have introduced others of very considerable merit, and their successful performance cannot fail to draw from any audience an expression of marked satisfaction. In conclusion, I trust many of my readers will carefully practise and follow the instructions g'iven, and attain a high stage of proficiency in the innocent art of Legerdemain. B. KUNARD. Chapters on - Principles Of Sleight Of Hand, Tricks With Ordinary Cards Not Requiring Sleight Of Hand, Tricks With Ordinary Cards Needing Calculation Or Confederact, Tricks Requiring The Use Of Prepared Cards Or Sleight Of Hand, Tricks Requiring Mechanica;l Cards Or The Employment Of Special Apparatus, and Card Sharpers' Tricks. Book - Very Good - in brown boards with red lettering and a hand holding some playing cards to front board and gilt lettering to spine - slight rubbing and bumping to ends of spine and slight rubbing to corners, minor marking to boards, slight browning to endpapers and small abrasion to bottom edge of last index page, previous owner's inscription to free front endpaper. Dust Jacket - None. Lovely copy of this interesting book. Size: 7.5 inches tall by 5 inches. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams.

London Temple Press
1931 First Edition Softcover Good Condition Quarto 
Simply bound by an earlier owner in an orange coloured card cover, with cut out lettering pasted on. While with the exception of No. 2123 (October 9 1931) every front page of each weekly edition is present quite a few pages of each weekly edition look to be missing. For example edition No. 2110 July 10 1931 runs to page 54 but No. 2111 July 17 1931 starts at page 59. This results in missing pages which have likely been edited out by the original owner when preparing their own yearly bound edition. There also appears to be some pages where illustrations and photographs have been cut from one page and pasted on and over another page, rather neatly. None of the 32 weekly editions should be considered as complete. 342 pages in total. Each weekly copy of the magazine covers a wide range of interesting subjects from touring, cycle maintenance, cycle equipment to road and track racing. Each edition is richly illustrated with black & white photographs, drawings and diagrams, as well as some interesting cycle and cycling related adverts. Overall condition is good, with clean, easily readable pages. There is some browning here and there to a few pages, but not many. Size: Quarto. Quantity Available: 1.

Available Now. Book Description: In the last days of the Soviet Union Fen Montaigne worked in Moscow as a staff correspondent for The Washington Post. Once back in the States, he longed to return, not least to a part of Russia unknown to him - the northern arc. With rivers and lakes in abundance he decided to indulge a passion and flyfish his way across the continent, from the Solovetsky Islands, 100 miles south of the Arctic Circle to the wilderness of the Kamchatka peninsula in the Russian far east. Like Paul Theroux (The Great Railway Bazaar) or Bruce Chatwin (In Patagonia) there was a sense of quest, a need to meet these wasteland inhabitants - these 'real Russians'. Fishing, he deduced, would also be a great adventure, as many of the rivers and lakes have been untouched by the kind of pollution that has wrecked the equivalent fishing in northern America. He was not disappointed. Hooked is a rich account of a rare journey : Book Description: Offbeat travel account based on a journey fly-fishing across the outmost northern reaches of Russia which also uncovers Soviet Russia's Gulag history.

1999 085131757X / 9780851317571 First Edition Hardcover New New 1.9 x 22.2 x 24.1 cm 
Drag-hunting may not be a substitute for the real thing, but it can be a lot of fun. This is John Strawson's message as he draws on his own experience both when whipping-in with the 4th Hussars' pack of draghounds - under the Mastership of the Celebrated Loopy Kennard - and later when he became Master of the Staff College Drag. The author describes the origins and activities of packs of draghounds, past and present, with particular reference to the dedication and hard work of those involved in a sport which is totally dependent upon the goodwill of farmers and landowners. For the newcomer there is much practical advice and guidance aimed not only at those involved in the organisation of the sport, but also for the first-time follower. This is a book written by a dedicated enthusiast. The love of horses and hounds, the sheer thrill of riding across country over fences, the occasional catastrophe, but above all the overriding need to preserve the countryside itself and the country sports that are such an important part of it - all figure in General Strawson's enjoyably good-humoured narrative which is laced with anecdotes and enlivened by literary allusion. Illustrated with reproductions of fine paintings, photographs and woodcuts, this is the perfect book for anyone with an interest in hunting and country sports. Size: 1.9 x 22.2 x 24.1 cm. 216 pages.

Review: "...shudder at the sheer depth of information the author teases : out from the mouldy woodwork of the game." -- SKY SPORTSZINE: Deserves a wide audience. -- The Daily Telegraph, October 26th 2006: French's style is breezy and his conclusions, based on his : extensive interviews, are both pertinent and interesting. -- The Birmingham Post, October 2006: This is a very good book indeed, carried through some complex : subject matter by the vibrancy of the writing. -- Andrew Baker, The Daily Telegraph, October 26th 2006 : Synopsis : Something grotesque is going on in the beautiful game. Money rather than sport now rules the roost. Stadium names are sold off to the highest bidder and players often seem no more than overpaid and over-sexed celebrities. Their every action, both on and off the pitch, is fodder for the tabloids as they themselves argue over whether it's 100k or 120k a week in their pay packets. Paul French has talked to leading football pundits as well as to fans from clubs all over the country. Whether they're Reds or Blues they share one thing in common: they're sick and tired of the greed that seems to run through the game they love. They're tired of big businesses slapping their names and logos everywhere, and they hate seeing footballers earn more in a week than they do in a year, particularly when they struggle to even afford the rising admission charge to matches. "Prawns in The Game" is the book those fans will need to read to understand how football has ended up where it is today.: From the formation of the very first football club to the creation of Arsenal's Emirates stadium, "Prawns in the Game" tells the story of the commercialisation of the game, in a tone and language the fans will welcome. This is the only book about the commercialisation of the game written by a fan for the fans. They'll laugh, they'll get angry and they'll find out: how did the prawn sandwich brigade take over our national sport? Size: 15 x 1.7 x 23 cm. 224 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Sport and Political Ideology, Hoberman, John M.

Sport and Political Ideology
UK Heinemann
1984 0435824406 / 9780435824402 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket 23cm 
Available Now. Missing Dustcover. "Book Description: Across the modern political spectrum, left-wing and right-wing political theorists have invested sport with ideological significance. That significance, however, varies distinctively and characteristically with the ideology-a phenomenon John Hoberman terms ""ideological differentiation."" Taking this phenomenon as its point of departure, this provocative work interprets the major sport ideologies of the twentieth century as distinct expressions of political doctrine. Hoberman argues that a political ideology's interpretation of sport is shaped in part by the value it assigns to work and play as modes of experience; the political anthropologies of right and left can be distinguished by examining their resistance to-or affinity for-sportive imagery of their leaders and of the state itself; there exists a fascist temperament that shows an affinity to athleticism and the sphere of the body that is not shared by the left. Tracing modern sport ideology back to its premodern antecedents, Hoberman examines the interpretations of sport that have been promulgated by European political intellectuals, such as cultural conservatives and contemporary neo-Marxists, and by the official ideologists of Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, the German Democratic Republic, and China before and after Mao. As a form of mass theater, sport can advertise any ideology. But the deeper relationship between sport and political ideology has never before been explored wth such vigor. Presenting the first general theory of sport and political ideology to appear in any language, Hoberman's groundbreaking work is a unique and invaluable contribution to the intellectual and political history of sport in the twentieth century. --" Size: 23cm. 328 pages.

200 Pages. 'The art of coaching is recognising the situation, recognising the people and responding to the people you are working with... that's the big thing, to handle people'. Steve Harrison, Coach, Middlesbrough Football Club. Responding to the fast growing subject in academic sports departments, this groundbreaking new coaching studies text offers a view that focuses the coach as a person and the coaching practice as a complex social encounter. Unlike existing titles in the field which look at coaching as a science, this book examines the personalities, histories, relationships and individual styles of eight coaches at the top of their profession. One-to-one interviews with some of the best-known and respected elite sports coaches include Steve Harrison, Hope Powell and Graham Taylor from football; Ian McGeechan and Bob Dwyer from rugby; Di Bass from swimming; Lois Muir from netball; and Peter Stanley from athletics; and form the basis for subsequent exploration of four key themes in sports coaching: * coaching pedagogy * the coach's role * the coach's interaction with athletes * the coach's power.

Book Description: Since the first Kakuro puzzle appeared in a newspaper in the autumn of 2005, it has gathered more and more fans, all caught up in the fascination of solving this brain-teasing puzzle. Like Sudoku, Kakuro is played on grids of varying sizes. The object of the game is to fill in each of the white squares (which, grouped together in an unbroken horizontal or vertical line, make an entry) with the numbers 1 to 9, the aim being to make the sum of the numbers in each entry match that of their associated 'clues' the numbers in the divided grey boxes. However, each entry must contain the numbers 1 to 9 only once with no repetition. Sudoku was great - Kakuro is better; step up and take the challenge, and be the first to master a game that is sure to set the nation on fire. : About the Author: Dr Gareth Moore gained his Ph.D. at Cambridge University, and designed his own Kakuro computer program almost as soon as the first puzzle appeared in a British newspaper, in the autumn of 2005.

Available Now. Book Description: James Dodson's heartwarming and heartbreaking Final Rounds became an instant golf classic. Now this acclaimed and award-winning author returns once more to the game he loves, to write about how it can shape the lives of the people who share his passion for the ancient game. They call themselves 'The Dewsweepers' -- every weekend morning throughout the season, they are the first group to tee off at the stately 100-year old Onandaga Club in upstate New York. Ranging in age from their late thirties to their seventies, they represent a whole variety of careers, personal situations and experiences. What they all share, what brings them together, is their love for the game. It begins at dawn on a beautiful summer morning. A young member of the Club's ground staff is out on the greens, wielding an implement virtually unchanged since old Tom Morris's day, to sweep the dew from the greens before the start of the day's play. The Dewsweepers step up to the tee, and their stories begin... Writing with the humour, warmth and wisdom that characterised Final Rounds, James Dodson follows The Dewsweepers through a whole year -- from their regular weekend games during the season and on to the pilgrimage they make to Britain, where they play some of the great unsung links courses of the country where the game was born. Through their games, their personalities emerge and in The Dewsweepers James Dodson offers a rare and privileged insight into the private lives, aspirations and dreams of a group of men and into the deep friendship that binds them together. : Review: "James Dodson is a gifted writer who clearly understands and loves golf; but more importantly he understands people and relationships." (JOHN FEINSTEIN, author of A Good Walk Spoiled): "Good-humoured and overwhelmingly tender -- Dodson's wonderful book will teach you a lot about life, a little about golf, and have you wishing for even a quarter of the relationship he obviously had with his father. Heartbreaking." (Maxim) : Book Description: A funny, intimate portrait of a group of men who discover friendship (and how important it is) through playing golf together.
