Meet the men who "Mixed" the martial arts a decade before the UFC! <div><br />What do an NFL star, a United States Secret Service Agent, Sylvester Stallone's bodyguard, and Muhammad Ali's sparring partner all have in common? They were all characters cast in America's original "anything goes" reality fighting drama, an "open call" that gave birth to a new sport--MMA. <div><br />Long before the Octagon was in vogue or Royce Gracie made his pay-per-view debut; decades before the UFC became a household brand and while the likes of Dana White were still in elementary school; two martial artists, Bill Viola and Frank Caliguri, set out to prove once and for all who the world's greatest fighter was by creating a radical new "sport" in 1979. </div><div><br />Tough Guys reveals the clandestine plot to subvert the "first" mixed martial arts revolution in American history, one poised to challenge boxing as the king of combat sports. Confounded by a freak accident (death in the ring) and widespread corruption, a massive struggle ensued over money, power, and respect between boxing's gentry and an upstart MMA company from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. CV (Caliguri and Viola) Productions ignited a bitter turf war with the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission that sparked a spectacular David and Goliath battle for leverage. The legendary story, buried by rhetoric for years, casts a wide net reeling in everyone from politicians to mobsters, all with ulterior motives; all with eyes on a billion dollar blueprint. From boxing's "Holy Territory," the home of Rocky Balboa, to a bizarre connection with the Supreme Court that lead to the first legal precedent for MMA--ever, this is the ultimate inside look.<br /></div><div>Tough Guys is a testosterone-laced whirlwind tale of "what might have been" told by the trailblazers who fought for it. Relive the epic adventure of the "Tough Guys" later known as Super Fighters (the first mixed martial arts league, long before it was labeled MMA). Thirty years before the UFC gained a mainstream audience, KDKA-TV dubbed CV's new sport, "Organized, Legalized, Street fighting" while the Philadelphia Journal proclaimed, "No holds barred as Superfighters take over." Take a journey back in time to the "Iron City" and meet the fighters, the foes, and the visionaries who created the modern sport of MMA.<br /></div></div>

Farthest North: Being the Record of a Voyage of Exploration of t...

<b>“Not since the publication of Mr. Stanley's 'In Darkest Africa' has any work of travel been received with the enthusiastic welcome accorded to Dr. Nansen's 'Farthest North.'”</b> –The Publisher, 1897<br /><br />Written for the popular reading public, "Farthest North" delighted thousands by its vigor of imagination, its masterful handling of material, its distinguished style. Fiction has woven no story to compare in fascinating interest with this tale of actual struggle with the unrelenting forces of inhospitable nature. This man, who captivated readers by his brilliant exploits, who “has lifted the veil which concealed the secrets of the North Polar regions,” is a typical Norseman characterised by the grace, the quiet dignity, and the unspoiled naturalness, that well become a great, self-reliant man of sublime achievement.<br /><br />Nansen's Fram expedition was an 1893–1896 attempt by the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen (1861-1930) to reach the geographical North Pole by harnessing the natural east–west current of the Arctic Ocean. <br /><br />In the face of much discouragement from other polar explorers, Nansen took his ship Fram to the New Siberian Islands in the eastern Arctic Ocean, froze her into the pack ice, and waited for the drift to carry her towards the pole. Impatient with the slow speed and erratic character of the drift, after 18 months Nansen and a chosen companion, Hjalmar Johansen, left the ship with a team of dogs and sledges and made for the pole. <br /><br />In 1897, Nansen published a narrative of the expedition, "Farthest North," which was received with jubilation at the time of its publication:<br /><br />"This unrivaled book of Arctic travel is an account of an expedition totally unlike all others before it." Hugh Robert Mill, Geographer<br /><br /> “The heroism is magnificent…the man who defies the uncontrollable forces of Nature.” London Quarterly and Holborn Review<br /><br />“A remarkable book…a brilliant record of skill, courage and perseverance amid enormous difficulties as well as of a success without a parallel. Life and adventures in the Polar seas have never been described with a more brilliant pen. Nansen is a master in the art of writing as well as in the art of exploration…keeps readers’ attention and interest always on the alert.” Scottish Review<br /><br />Nansen's plan for the expedition had found scanty favor with the geographers, whom he gibbets in the early part of his book with evident enjoyment. Greely had called the expedition “Dr. Nansen's illogical scheme of self-destruction.” <br /><br />The details of building Fram, undoubtedly the most ingenious boat ever launched at that time, will be read with keen interest. She was to be a fully-rigged vessel of 170 tons, with 6-knot engines , built on such lines and of such materials as should withstand or evade the tremendous ice-pressure to which she would be subjected. From the designing and building of the ship to the minutest portion of the stores she carried, no pains had been spared to deserve success.<br /><br />Both while on the Fram and during his sledge journey with Johansen, Dr. Nansen kept a diary, and at times he has drawn largely on its pages in compiling his story. Nansen writes: “I laugh at the scurvy; I laugh at the ice; we are living, as it were, in an impregnable castle. I laugh at the cold; it is nothing. But I do not laugh at the winds; they are everything; they bend to no man's will.”<br /><br />Outside of the protection of the Fram, the warlike appearance of walruses or polar bears wasn't welcome, especially when the walruses ripped open the kayaks or the bears killed the dogs--or attacked the men. As Nansen relates: "I drew my sledge to the end of the ice, when I heard a scuffle behind me, and I turned round and saw an enormous bear throwing itself on him, and Johansen on his back...." <br /><br />A hundred years after the expedition the British explorer Wally Herbert called the Fram voyage "one of the most inspiring examples of courageous intelligence in the history of exploration."

<p>The Football Code outlines an innovative, ground-breaking philosophy that will change the way you watch the beautiful game.</p><br /><br /><p>In a sport which is so largely dictated by randomness, how can we accurately assess the performance of teams, players and managers? How can we tell who is good and who is simply lucky?</p><br /><br /><p>The Football Code teaches how a more scientific approach can eradicate the damaging effects of chance, leaving a clearer image of what is actually happening on the field of play. Only then can managers sign better players. Only then can pundits offer better judgements. Only then can fans compile better fantasy football teams.</p><br /><br /><p>This book addresses the intrinsic errors and inefficiencies which plague the sport, whilst at the same time revealing the top secret methods that professional gambling syndicates use to predict future outcomes.</p><br /><br /><p>Above all, it discloses the top secret, data-driven system that one football mastermind has used to make millions in the betting markets, and that has allowed the Championship team he owns to punch spectacularly above its financial weight.</p><br /><br /><p>Football has finally found it's answer to baseball's 'Moneyball'.</p><br /><p> </p><br /><br /><p>"Any fan who doesn't read this book will be left behind." - William Lund.</p><br /><br /><p>"Unveils a revolutionary approach to the transfer market. Truly exceptional." - FootballNow.</p><br /><br /><p>"A masterclass. The sport of football will never be the same again" - Levi Janssen.</p>
