In <em>Intervention,</em> Dan described how he evaluates adults and suggests course corrections to improve the basics. <br /><br /> He followed that with <em>Can You Go?,</em> where he addressed assessments trainers and coaches might use with their clients and athletes. <br /><br /> Now, in <em>Now What?</em> Dan loops back around to tell us what to do next. You’ve brought your clients up to the minimum standards. You’ve done your assessments. Now what? <br /><br /> That’s the question Dan answers in this book, the third installment of this series. <br /><br /> Dan John’s <em>Now What?</em> will help you determine the next steps in moving toward the goals of your clients and athletes. <br /><br /> “In <em>Now What?</em> Dan presents basic tools and training principles from his experiences as an athlete and coach, and applies them with experienced hands and through empathetic eyes toward the personal growth of his readers. It’s a reasonable approach to help us all reach our goals, bringing greater satisfaction while working through the process.” ~ Chip Morton <br /><br /> From Dan’s Introduction to <em>Now What?</em>: <br /><br /> The lessons learned about the road to success from elite athletes and performers can make everyone’s life better. From de-cluttering the inbox or letter pile with a shark habit, to applying pirate maps to ongoing health and fitness, most people can free up some mental space to focus on moving ahead with all of life’s goals and dreams. <br /><br /> Elite performers focus on the fundamentals and basics more thoroughly than the hobbyist. Elite performers keep their heads clear, carving out the clutter of life—both the important and the unimportant—with a scalpel. When needed, the elite focus on two- to twelve-week programs to shore up a weakness or some other issue. Elite performance is principle based. <br /><br /> Most of us can learn from this “carving of the clutter.” At times, we can follow a program, but most of the time, we can adopt a simple list of pirate maps for our fitness, health and longevity needs and goals. <br /><br /> The stumbling block of Now what? soon takes on a new meaning. After emptying the inbox and finishing the laundry, we can ask Now what? as the start of a new adventure, a new challenge. <br /><br /> In this book, I outline a simple quadrant showing how I teach elite performers the tools to deal with life, living and high-end achievement. And if you don’t think you’re an elite performer, I would like you to reconsider this. ~ Dan John

A track coach takes a look at the effect coming school transgender policies will have on girls sports. Those policy changes include boys in the girls locker rooms and boys on girls athletic teams due to a walk into the guidance office and a declaration of the new gender. Human dignity and suicide is often cited as a defense of such policies using Title IX as the legal impetus behind it. Yet the same officials hell-bent on creating this brave new world in high school athletics and life has not considered the cost to young women. What if that same policy meant to make a few feel better ends up destroying girls athletics? Using track statistics from a five-year period the book points out what should be obvious...boys have a general advantage over girls in areas of speed, jumping, and physical strength. Should a girl lose a school record, a sectional patch, a trip to states...or even get cut from the team due to a boy playing as a girl? Why is letting a boy play as a girl any different from a girl using drugs to enhance her performance? This book will explore these questions.

Mary Decker's clash with Zola Budd at the 1984 Los Angeles Games is one of the biggest and most controversial events in Olympic history. In a head-to-head that gripped the imagination of the world, the 3000 metres race pitted the experienced and glamourous world champion from the host nation against a prodigious, teenage waif from South Africa wearing a hastily-organised British flag on her vest and, memorably, no shoes on her feet. Disastrously, a mid-race collision saw Decker tumble to the inside of the track after her legs tangled with Budd's as the 18-year-old overtook the American in a battle for pole position. Distraught and unable to carry on, the tearful Decker watched in frustration as Maricica Puica of Romania stormed to gold while Budd, who was heavily booed by the partisan crowd in the closing stages, faded to seventh. Using the famous Olympic moment as its focal point, Collision Course tells the story of two of the best-known and greatest athletes of alltime, analyses their place in history as pioneers of women's sport, and lifts the lid on two lives that have been filled of sporting and political intrigue that, until now, has never been fully told.

<i>The Shorter Wisden</i> is a compelling distillation of what's best in its bigger brother – and the 2017 edition of <i>Wisden</i> is crammed, as ever, with the best writing in the game. Available from all major eBook retailers, <i>Wisden</i>'s digital version includes the influential Notes by the Editor, all the front-of-book articles, including Matthew Engel looking back at 60 years of <i>Test Match Special</i>, Derek Pringle revealing the secrets of ball-tampering, and Gideon Haigh exploring the evolution of the six. There are also superb pieces by Rob Smyth, Vic Marks and Tanya Aldred, plus reviews, obituaries and all England's Tests from the 2016 season. In an age of snap judgments, <i>Wisden</i>'s authority and integrity are more important than ever. Yet again this year's edition is truly a "must-have†? for every cricket fan.<br /><br /><b>"There can't really be any doubt about the cricket book of the year, any year: it's obviously Wisden"</b> Andrew Baker in the <i>Daily Telegraph</i><br /><br />@WisdenAlmanack
