<b>The first book by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady—the five-time Super Bowl champion who is still reaching unimaginable heights of excellence at forty years old—a gorgeously illustrated and deeply practical “athlete’s bible” that reveals Brady’s revolutionary approach to sustained peak performance for athletes of all kinds and all ages.</b><BR><BR>In modern sports, some athletes have managed to transcend their competition in a way that no one will ever forget: Jordan. Jeter. Ali. Williams. These elite legends have changed the game, achieved the unthinkable, and pushed their bodies to unbelievable limits. Joining their exclusive ranks is Tom Brady.<BR> <BR>“Brady is the healthiest great champion the NFL has ever had, both physically and mentally” (Sally Jenkins, <i>The Washington Post</i>). The longtime New England Patriots quarterback, who in 2017 achieved his fifth Super Bowl win and fourth Super Bowl MVP award, is widely regarded as an athlete whose training and determination pushed him from a mediocre draft position to the most-revered and respected professional football player of his generation.<BR> <BR>In <i>The TB12 Method</i>, Tom Brady explains how he developed his groundbreaking approach to long-term fitness, presenting a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to his personal practice. Brady offers the principles behind pliability, which is at the heart of a new paradigm shift and movement toward a more natural, healthier way of exercising, training, and living—and one that challenges some commonly held assumptions around health and wellness. Filled with lessons learned from Brady’s own peak performance training, and step-by-step action steps to help readers develop and maintain their own peak performance, <i>The TB12 Method </i>also advocates for more effective approaches to strength training, hydration, nutrition, supplementation, cognitive fitness, recovery, and other lifestyle choices that dramatically decrease the risk of injury while amplifying and extending performance, as well as quality of life.<BR> <BR>After using his methods for over a decade, Brady believes that the TB12 approach has made him—and can make any athlete, male or female, in any sport and at any level—achieve their own peak performance. With instructions, drills, photos, in-depth case studies that Brady himself has used, as well as personal anecdotes and experiences from on and off the field, <i>The TB12 Method</i> is the only book an athlete will ever need, a playbook from Brady himself that will change the game.

<div>Who is the greatest dunker of all time? Which version of the Michael Jordan was the best Michael Jordan? What is allowed and absolutely not allowed in a game of pickup basketball? <I>Basketball (and Other Things)</I> presents readers with a whole new set of pivotal and ridiculous fan disputes from basketball history, providing arguments and answers, explained with the wit and wisdom that is unique to Shea Serrano. Serrano breaks down debates that NBA fans didn’t even know they needed, from the classic (How many years during his career was Kobe Bryant actually the best player in the league?) to the fantastical (If you could assign different values to different shots throughout basketball history, what would they be and why?). With incredible art from Arturo Torres, this book is a must-have for anyone who has ever stayed up late into the night debating basketball’s greatest moments, what-ifs, stories, and legends, or for those who are discovering the mythology of basketball for the first time.<BR>  </div>

<b>From the author of the cult favorite <i>Pro Cycling on $10 a Day </i>and <i>Ask a Pro</i>, the story of one man’s quest to realize his childhood dream, and what happened when he actually did it.</b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> Like countless other kids, Phil Gaimon grew up dreaming of being a professional athlete. But unlike countless other kids, he actually pulled it off. After years of amateur races, hard training, living out of a suitcase, and never taking “no” for an answer, he finally achieved his goal and signed a contract to race professionally on one of the best teams in the world.<br /><br /> Now, Gaimon pulls back the curtain on the WorldTour, cycling’s highest level. He takes readers along for his seasons in Europe, covering everything from rabid, water-bottle-stealing Belgian fans, to contract renewals, to riding in poisonous smog, to making friends in a sport plagued by doping. <i>Draft Animals</i> reveals a story as much about bike racing as it is about the never-ending ladder of achieving goals, failure, and finding happiness if you land somewhere in-between.

Remember His Name: Conquering Sorrow, Accepting Joy is a book about hope, tragedy, healing and forgiveness. It is a personal story of a woman who experienced the sudden tragic loss of her spouse of almost 37 years. You will read of her courage and strength as she stumbled through the first few months, learning to accept the reality of what happened.<br /> She shares her private personal thoughts and feelings as she traveled a journey she never thought she would ever face. She is candid and purely honest as she speaks of her experiences. From the heart, you are there with her, feeling and experiencing the horror as well as the joy as time goes on and she shares with you the steps she took and things she discovered that helped heal the pain of her grief.<br /> Judith and Ralph met in 1973, fell in love, got married, had two beautiful children, raised them in a rural suburb of Detroit, Michigan, sent them off to college, watched them become independent successful young people and now as a couple experiencing empty nest and nearing retirement began planning their future. The summer evenings were just right for swinging on their new wooden swing. They often found themselves reminiscing about the past and planning for the future.<br /> Then suddenly one beautiful summer evening, all that changed.<br />Spiritual events, synchronicity, meditation, journaling and the importance of connecting with others, stepping outside of her comfort zone helped her learn to walk the path of grief. Then finally, she stepped into a new life. Letting the spirit of her beloved live within her, while letting his physical being go is a philosophy Judith lives by daily. Always keeping in mind the last words, her husband Ralph wrote to their daughter Holli in an e-mail, “The Future is Bright.”

SHAY GIVEN is one of the game’s good guys: An Irish hero and Premier League marathon man whose goalkeeping career has spanned three decades.<br /><br />He has played in World Cups and FA Cup finals; shared a dressing room with football greats like Roy Keane, Alan Shearer and Robbie Keane and worked under celebrated managers like Kenny Dalglish, Bobby Robson and Martin O’Neill.<br /><br />But Shay has had to show courage and strength of mind to get where he wanted in life.<br /><br />At four years old, he cruelly lost his mother to cancer at the age of just 41. Mum Agnes’s dying wish was that Dad Seamus would keep the family together. Seamus kept his word and the Given clan watched with pride as Shay forged a record-breaking career in the sport he loved.<br /><br />From Donegal to Saipan, Glasgow to Wembley and Tyneside to Paris, it’s been some journey. <br />Shay has seen it all. Glorious highs and desperate lows. Dressing room wind-ups and team-bonding punch-ups. Brutal injuries and crippling self-doubt. Along the way, he has made so many friends.<br /><br />When one of his closest pals, Gary Speed, died suddenly in 2011, he was devastated. He played on, doing the only thing he knew to get him through the pain – pulling on a shirt and a pair of gloves.<br /><br />Shay loves football – for him, nothing can beat the buzz of a Saturday afternoon or the thrill of a big match night under lights. But he has never lost touch with the fans who make the game what it is. <br /><br />Entertaining, opinionated and inspirational, his long-awaited autobiography ANY GIVEN SATURDAY features a stellar cast of famous football names from the past 25 years. It tugs at the heart strings, bubbles with banter and lets slip secrets behind the big stories. This is a rare journey behind the scenes as told by one of our own.
A New Approach to Coyote Trapping

After writing my first book, A New Approach to Coon Trapping, I saw there was a need for this book to be published. When I wrote my first book, the coon market was at levels they have not been at for years. Well, that was in 2013, and things did not last for long. The market dropped out for coons, and a lot of other animals, and it seemed almost impossible to sell a lot of the fur that trappers was catching.<br />What was able to survive the fur market crash was the coyote, among a couple other furbearer species. Coyotes are abundant throughout much of the United States. They prey on livestock, family pets, whitetails fawns, and just about every other living creature in the country. They are definitely at the top of the food chain. With plenty of coyotes to catch, and a better than average value, more trappers are targeting coyotes.<br />This book is full of information that both the novice and experienced coyote trapper can use to put more coyotes on the stretcher. Whether you are just beginning, and do not know where to begin in order to catch a coyote, or you have been catching coyotes for years, and you are looking for a fresh prospective, this book will have what you are looking for.<br />

Do you ever ask these questions?<br />“I’ve seen her/him do so much better. Why won’t they go 100% in a game?”<br />"What should my kid be doing in the off-season?"<br />“Should they be lifting weights at that age?”<br />"Should we go to this showcase??"<br />“His/her coach said we need to xxxxxx. Is that right?”<br />"How in the world do I fit all of that in our schedule/budget?"<br />Or maybe thinking…<br /><br />“That doesn’t seem right, but he’s the coach.”<br /><br />“We would love to do that but he/she is always practicing or playing a game.”<br /><br />"I just want to give my kids the best opportunity to be successful!"<br /><br /><br />This coach says run laps. That coach said running laps is a waste of time. This coach said “You’re doing the wrong workouts.” That coach said he’s an idiot for saying you’re doing the wrong workouts. Training session or practice? Club team or let them take some time off? How do you really know what's right for you and your kid? They need all of those things right? No wonder parents are so confused!<br /><br /><br />What's the answer to those questions?<br />WELL....IT DEPENDS....<br />“Your Student Athlete: Must Do, Should Do, and Don’t” is a book designed to help you figure out these questions in simple terms.<br /><br />My name is Michael Richards. I own Elite Athletic Performance LLC in Benton, Arkansas ( www.EAperformancellc.com ). For over 20 years I have been fascinated with human performance and I have been coaching human performance for almost as long. <br />In that time I have accumulated approximately 30,000 hours of “on the floor” training experience. Ever heard of the 10,000 Hour Rule (to becoming an expert)? Yeah I’ve tripled that. <br />I’ve dealt with high level collegiate athletes, pro-level athletes, and 8 year olds that can’t even do jumping jacks. In spending all of that time with youth athletes, I have learned one of very few universal truths. An athlete is an athlete. Regardless of the sport he or she plays. We as parents and coaches have somehow gotten away from that. Because of that, I see parents running around like crazy trying to get their kid to this practice and that lesson. They really seem confused on how their athlete should be training. <br /><br /><br />WHY YOU NEED THIS BOOK<br />I am going to explain why some of the current trends I see in youth sports are hindering development while seeming to be very helpful. <br />I purposely made this book “read” like a large “Random thoughts about…” blog. I wanted this book crammed full of useful information for parents. I am a “Function over Form” guy. You are not purchasing this book so you can enjoy the finer side of English literature and formatting. You are purchasing it for results and that is what you are going to get .I’ll share with you some things that I believe to be universal truths, as well as some things that I have figured out anecdotally over my time as a strength coach. One of the most frequently asked questions I get is basically “What Should we be doing??” <br /><br />Well I’m planning to answer that question in the following pages. <br /><br />I didn’t write this book to tell you how you are doing it all wrong because you aren’t following my program. I am providing our baseline athletic development program at the end of the book though for you and your child to get started with if you choose.<br />I want to help you wade through all of the choices and make an accurate, educated decision on what your child needs in order to become a stud athlete and not get hurt in the process. This book will arm you with the information you need to decide for yourself what they can do at home, what you might want to hire a coach for and what they don’t even need to do at all. <br /><br /><br />I promise when you finish this book you will be armed with the information that you need in order to set yourself and your child up for success. Not only that, but you will have a tangible program that you can begin immediately to get your kid moving in the right direction and feel comfortable knowing that they are doing what they need. Not too much, not too little.

<div><b>The Wrestling Biography You’ve Been Waiting For!</b> <br /><br />There are few people who have been in the wrestling business longer than Jim Ross. And those who have made it as long as he has (half a century to be exact) probably made enemies or burned bridges. But that’s just not JR. <br /><br /><b><i>Slobberknocker</b></i> is the story of how an Oklahoman farm kid, with a vivid imagination and seemingly unattainable dreams, became “The Voice of Wrestling” to record TV audiences and millions of fans around the world. <br /><br />Jim opens up about his life as an only child on a working farm, who became obsessed with professional wrestling having first saw it on his grandparent’s TV. Even though the wrestling business was notoriously secretive and wary of “outsiders,” he somehow got a foot in the door to start a historic career, one where he held almost every job in the business―from putting up the ring to calling matches, from driving his blind, drunk boss towards revenge, to consoling two naked 600 pound brothers in the shower room after a rough match. <br /><br />With all those adventures and responsibilities, he’s also recognized as the man who built and nurtured a once-in-a-generation talent roster that took the WWE to new heights, including “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Brock Lesnar, and The Rock to name a few. Readers will finally get the opportunity to hear never-before-told stories about the politics, wackiness, and personalities of all the biggest stars. <br /><br />But this isn’t just a wrestling story. It’s a story about overcoming adversity and achieving your dreams, as success did not come without significant costs and unforeseen challenges to JR, including multiple bouts of severe facial paralysis called Bell’s Palsy. <br /><br />Currently the host of the podcast The Ross Report, any fan of wrestling―from the territory days to today―will be enthralled with stories from the road and behind the scenes. <b><i>Slobberknocker</b></i> is the first time Ross tells his story―and you don’t want to miss it!</div>
