This Mum Runs

This Mum Runs by Jo Pavey

The inspirational story of athlete Jo Pavey, the runner and mum heading to a record-breaking fifth Olympic Games at Rio 2016.

'Come-back races? I've had more than a few, the night of 10 May 2014 was the ultimate long shot. I was a forty-year-old mother of two who had given birth eight months before. I trained on a treadmill in a cupboard by the back door and I was wearing a running vest older than most of the girls I was competing against. Was I crazy?'

Jo Pavey was forty years old when she won the 10,000m at the European Championships. It was the first gold medal of her career and, astonishingly,...

Questioning Play: What play can tell us about social life

Questioning Play: What play can tell us about social life by Henning Eichberg

What is play? Why do we play? What can play teach us about our life as social beings? In this critical investigation into the significance of play, Henning Eichberg argues that through play we can ask questions about the world, others and ourselves. Playing a game and asking a question are two forms of human practice that are fundamentally connected. This book presents a practice-based philosophical approach to understanding play that begins with empirical study, drawing on historical, sociological and anthropological investigations of play in the real world, from contemporary Danish soccer...

Mastering the Art of Arms Vol 1: The Medieval Dagger

Mastering the Art of Arms Vol 1: The Medieval Dagger by Guy WindsorThe term "medieval martial arts" conjures images of armour-clad knights wielding sword, lance and axe. While the image is correct, at the foundation of knightly combat was a sophisticated form of close quarter combat, instantly recognizable to students of classical Asian arts such as jujutsu or practitioners of modern, military combatives. At the heart of this system was fighting with - and against - the dagger, a vicious weapon of both self-defense and last resort that was dangerous to those in and out of armour alike. In Mastering the Art of Arms, Volume One: The Medieval Dagger, renowned...

A Neutral Corner: Boxing Essays

A Neutral Corner: Boxing Essays by A. J. Liebling

Fifteen previously unpublished boxing pieces written between 1952 and 1963.

Demonstrating A.J. Liebling's abiding passion for the "sweet science" of boxing, A Neutral Corner brings together fifteen previously unpublished pieces written between 1952 and 1963. Antic, clear-eyed, and wildly entertaining, these essays showcase a The New Yorker journalist at the top of his form. Here one relives the high drama of the classic Patterson-Johansson championship bout of 1959, and Liebling's early prescient portrayal of Cassius Clay's style as a boxer and a poet is not to be missed.

Facing The Extreme: One Woman's Tale of True Courage, Death-Defying Survival and Her Quest For The Summit

Facing The Extreme: One Woman's Tale of True Courage, Death-Defying Survival and Her Quest For The Summit by Ruth Anne Kocour & Michael Hodgson

She stepped into a death zone. The climbers on Alaska's Mt. McKinley called her "the woman." Ruth Anne Kocour, a world-class mountaineer, wasn't bothered. It was part of the challenge she faced as she joined an all-male team to conquer North America's highest peak...the mountain the Indians called Denali, or God.

Faced the extreme. But nine days into this ascent, a forty-fifth birthday present to herself, the most violent weather on record slammed into the mountain. Ruth Anne and her group would be trapped on an ice shelf at 14,000 feet for the deadliest two weeks in Denali history. Pinned down...

The moonlight was reflecting off two eyes staring at him from the darkness. Joe Donner was an avid hunter. He loved every aspect of hunting, especially deer hunting. He heard talk of a meadow that was always full of deer but was off the beaten path, so most hunters didn

Geoff and Mitchell Schwartz are the NFL's most improbable pair of offensive linemen. They started their football careers late, not playing a down of organized football until they joined their low-key high school program.

In Eat My Schwartz, Geoff and Mitch talk about the things that have made them the extraordinary people that they are: their close-knit and supportive family, their Jewish faith and traditions, their love of the game and drive for excellence and, last but...
