Speed Kings: The 1932 Winter Olympics and the Fastest Men in the World

Andy Bull

Speed Kings: The 1932 Winter Olympics and the Fastest Men in the World by Andy Bull

A story of risk, adventure, and daring as four Americans race to win the gold medal in the most dangerous competition in Olympic history.

In the 1930s, as the world hurtled toward war, speed was all the rage. Bobsledding, the fastest and most thrilling way to travel on land, had become a sensation. Exotic, exciting, and brutally dangerous, it was the must-see event of the 1932 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, the first Winter Games on American soil. Bobsledding required exceptional skill and extraordinary courage—qualities the American team had in abundance.

There was Jay O'Brien, the high-society...

Williams is a man of many parts, a sports figure, a government figure, a leader of his people, a husband, a father, and a Native man with one foot firmly planted in the twenty-first century and another firmly planted in the roots of a culture that dates back 10,000 years in Alaska. Williams competed in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race fifteen times, and was once the only Yup'ik Eskimo musher, a symbol to all Natives around the state. Although he was never...

Hockey Confidential

Bob McKenzie

Hockey Confidential by Bob McKenzie

Over 500,000 hockey fans follow Bob McKenzie on Twitter and millions more on TSN—no one has the access or breadth and depth of experience when it comes to the hockey.

He talks to Bobby Orr about Connor McDavid (touted as "the next Crosby"), reveals the actual stats that NHL coaches and scouts use, and explores what it's like to be Don Cherry's son. Entertaining, insightful and a damn good read, Hockey Confidential is a must for...

The Devil and Bobby Hull: How Hockey's Original Million-Dollar Man Became the Game's Lost Legend

Gare Joyce

The Devil and Bobby Hull: How Hockey's Original Million-Dollar Man Became the Game's Lost Legend by Gare Joyce

An award-winning writer sets the record straight on hockey's forgotten golden boy--Bobby Hull

In his prime, few could dispute Bobby Hull's athletic brilliance--the first to have five 50-goal seasons, the highest scorer on the 1976 Canada Cup team, the first to use the slapshot as a scoring weapon, and the first hockey player to sign a million-dollar contract. With his body-builder torso, and his 100 mph volleys across a rink, the world of hockey glory was his to lose. And he did. With his publicized marital troubles and his defection from the NHL to the WHA, Hull's star began to fall, leaving...

Fighting the Good Fight: Why On-Ice Violence Is Killing Hockey

Adam Proteau

Fighting the Good Fight: Why On-Ice Violence Is Killing Hockey by Adam Proteau

Whether it's on-ice fist fights or head shots into the glass, hockey has become a nightly news spectacle with players pummeling and bashing each other across the ice like drunken gladiators. And while the NHL may actually condone on-ice violence as a ticket draw, diehard hockey fan and expert Adam Proteau argues against hockey's transformation into a thuggish blood sport. In Fighting the Good Fight, Proteau sheds light on the many perspectives of those in and around the game, with interviews of current and former NHL stars, coaches, general managers, and league executives, as well as medical...
