    Title: Great Romantic
    Author: HAMILTON DUNCAN

    Neville Cardus described how one majestic stroke-maker 'made music' and 'spread beauty' with his bat. Between two world wars, he became the laureate of cricket by doing the same with words.

    In The Great Romantic, award-winning author Duncan Hamilton demonstrates how Cardus changed sports journalism for ever. While popularising cricket - while appealing, in Cardus' words to people who 'didn't know a leg-break from the pavilion cat at Lord's'- he became a star in his own right with exquisite phrase-making, disdain for statistics and a penchant for literary and musical allusions.

    Among those who venerated Cardus were PG Wodehouse, John Arlott, Harold Pinter, JB Priestley and Don Bradman. However, behind the rhapsody in blue skies, green grass and colourful characters, this richly evocative biography finds that Cardus' mother was a prostitute, he never knew his father and he received negligible education. Infatuations with younger women ran parallel to a decidedly unromantic marriage. And, astonishingly, the supreme stylist's aversion to factual accuracy led to his reporting on matches he never attended.

    Yet Cardus also belied his impoverished origins to prosper in a second class-conscious profession, becoming a music critic of international renown. The Great Romantic uncovers the dark enigma within a golden age.

    The Europeans laughed at his old-fashioned bicycle and predicted that he would never make it in the Tour de France, the world's hardest and most prestigious cycling race.

He returned home a hero, and cemented his claim to greatness by winning almost every long-distance cycling race in New Zealand during the 1930s, creating several enduring records in the process.

    Title: High Adventure: The Adventure Doesn't End When You Become a Dad
    Author: ALLSOP MIKE

    What happens when an accomplished adventurer becomes a father? Does he continue his solo adventures? Is there a way of having it all, family time plus adventures?
    Mike Allsop is a dynamo, an airline pilot and mountaineer who ran seven peaks in seven days on seven continents. He's also a motivational speaker, author of High Altitude (2013), a husband and the father of three children.

    He needed to find a way of incorporating his adventures into family life, rather than going off solo. He knew that he needed to keep exploring, to keep filling up his 'emotional tank', but he also knew there had to be something in it for everyone. So he takes each child on a one-on-one trip when they turn seven and 14. That's led to some incredible challenges:

    Trekking over 100 km with a seven-year-old in the Himalaya

    Twelve-year-old Maia making the world's highest stand-up paddle board on a freezing lake

    Ethan only just making it to the top of Kilimanjaro

    Fundraising to buy a new house for one of the Sherpa widows after the devastating earthquake of 2015 that killed several Sherpas and friends.

    The excitement continues, with the family continually dreaming up new plans.

    Title: Hooked for Life
    Author: HILL LES

    Based on Les Hill’s 63 years of fly fishing in New Zealand, HOOKED FOR LIFE is packed with interesting, amusing and informative anecdotes. The book resonates with the sheer joy of hunting and catching trout, while imparting a lifetime’s worth of invaluable lessons on how to go about it. The reader will not only benefit from the author’s years of experience with nymph and dry fly, but will enjoy soaking up the special atmosphere he evokes and relive vicariously the primal contest between angler and fish. Along the way they’ll learn to think like a trout and understand the nature of the world it lives in; get some tips on streamside photography; and come to appreciate the author’s view that it is often more satisfying to catch one special fish than a large number on a particular day, or that the trout that gets away can provide as much fun as several brought to a net. In the second part of the book, Dr Graham Macdonald’s thoughtful chapters on fishing and wellness give an insight into the therapeutic benefits of fly fishing, an unusual angle not often explored in fly fishing literature. From page one, HOOKED FOR LIFE is lavishly illustrated with over 120 superb large-format colour photographs that not only invite one into the book, but also reveal the beauty of our rivers, streams, lakes and countryside, and encourage the reader to head out to experience the wonderful world of fly fishing. The perfect gift for any angler. "A marvel of a book, illustrated with superb photography and written with quiet wisdom, story-telling art, information and love. A treasure trove gathered from more than 60 years of perfect pleasure." - Kevin Ireland, author of How To Catch A Fish ABOUT THE AUTHOR Les Hill is a retired school teacher. He lives on a two-acre block close to Hokitika with panoramic views of the Southern Alps and the Tasman Sea. He enjoys life in the outdoors – trout fishing, whitebaiting, sea fishing and hunting. He always carries a camera. He is the author or co-author of seven previous, highly acclaimed books on trout fishing. Les was a regular contributor to Fish and Game magazine and has had numerous articles and photographs published in books and magazines both in NZ and abroad.

    Title: Into Thin Air
    Author: KRAKAUER JON

    This is the true story of a 24-hour period on Everest, when members of three separate expeditions were caught in a storm and faced a battle against hurricane-force winds, exposure, and the effects of altitude, which ended the worst single-season death toll in the peak's history. In March 1996, Outside magazine sent veteran journalist and seasoned climber Jon Krakauer on an expedition led by celebrated Everest guide Rob Hall. Despite the expertise of Hall and the other leaders, by the end of summit day eight people were dead. Krakauer's book is at once the story of the ill-fated adventure and an analysis of the factors leading up to its tragic end. Written within months of the events it chronicles, Into Thin Air clearly evokes the majestic Everest landscape. As the journey up the mountain progresses, Krakauer puts it in context by recalling the triumphs and perils of other Everest trips throughout history. The author's own anguish over what happened on the mountain is palpable as he leads readers to ponder timeless questions.

    Author: HERBERT JOHNNY & HILL DAMON


    Drawing on a lifetime of sniffing petrol fumes, Lights Out, Full Throttle stands large over the landscape of Formula One and takes the temperature of the good, the bad and the ugly of the petrolhead's paradise.

    Johnny Herbert and Damon Hill between them competed in 261 Grands Prix, amassing twenty-five wins, forty-nine podium finishes, one World Championship, 458 championship points, a Le Mans win, two smashed ankles, a broken arm, wrist and leg, sixty broken ribs, and two bruised egos.

    Having retired from racing, Johnny and Damon have become the one constant for passionate English F1 fans in a rapidly changing landscape. They have earned cult status as commentators and pundits, with viewers loving their unerring dedication to the sport's greatness.

    It offers F1 fans a tour of the sport - from Monaco to Silverstone; Johnny's crowd surfing and Bernie's burger bar; the genius of Adrian Newey and Colin Chapman; why Lewis Hamilton will never, ever move to Ferrari (probably); getting the yips; money; safety; what it's like to have an out-of-body experience while driving a car in the pouring rain at 200 mph; and the future of the sport in the wake of Covid-19 and Black Lives Matter.

    Whether you're a fan of Nigel, Niki, Kimi or Britney, pine for the glory days of Brabham, Williams, Jim Clark and Fangio, or believe that Lewis is one year away from retiring as the GOAT, Lights Out, Full Throttle is the oily rag for the petrolhead fan to inhale while waiting for the racers to line up on the grid.

    Along the way, you will learn how to incorporate natural movement techniques into your own running and you will hear from some of the athletes that Shane has worked with and coached over the years to understand how they have successfully adopted these techniques to improve their own performances, including two times Marathon des Sables winner, Elisabet Barnes, Team GB 24 hour athletes, Robbie Britton and Dan Lawson, mountain runners, Nicky Spinks, Damian Hall and Tom Evans and three times winner of The Spine race, Pavel Paloncy.

Murdoch has appeared publicly a few times since but not said much and nothing at all of the events of that night, or how he felt then and later.But now, the story can be told more fully than before through anecdotes and memories of teammates and colleagues and through the damning words of those who condemned him to his life on the run.

    Author: WENGER ARSENE


    For the very first time, world-renowned and revolutionary football manager Arsène Wenger tells his own story. He opens up about his life, sharing principles for success on and off the field with lessons on leadership, and vivid tales of his 22 years managing Arsenal to unprecedented success. There, Wenger won multiple Premier League championships and a record number of FA Cups, and his teams included the Invincibles of 2003-2004 and a record-breaking undefeated 49-match run. He popularised an attacking approach and belief that the game should be entertaining but he also changed the attitudes of British football fans towards players' diet, fitness and coaching methods - and towards foreign managers too.

    In My Life in Red and White, Wenger charts his extraordinary career, including his rise in France and Japan where he managed Nancy, Monaco and Nagoya Grampus Eight (clubs that also play in red-and-white, like Arsenal!) to his 22 years at the helm of an internationally renowned club from 1996 onwards. He describes the unrest that led to his resignation in 2018, and his current role as Chief of Global Football Development for FIFA. He offers studious reflections on the game and his groundbreaking approach to motivation, mindset, fitness and football that was often beautiful to watch.

    This book is a must-read for not only Arsenal fans but football fans everywhere, for management and business leaders, and anyone seeking the tools for success in work and life. It will illuminate the mystique surrounding one of the most revered and successful manager's life story, strategy and vision in the world's most popular sport.

With six Tour de France points jersey victories, three road race world championships, the 2018 Paris-Roubaix, and multiple spring classics among Sagan's palmares, the world of cycling agrees that this intense, yet fun-loving rider is among the most dominant and fun-to-watch riders of his generation.


    In My World, for the very first time, bike racing fans will have the opportunity to glimpse behind the scenes of Sagan's cycling life, revealing the full extent of his dedication to competition and determination to win. They will read about his relationship with fellow riders, his heroes, and how he copes with the expectation of success. He will share technical details about his preparation, dissect the art of the sprint, and analyze the tactics that play out during a fiercely competitive stage or race.


    Sagan also gets personal, inviting us into his entourage as he blasts through races--then blows off steam with a few well-played pranks on friends. He shares his love for stunts like popping uphill wheelies on his road bike or lip-synching to John Travolta--and explains why bets lost and promises to friends sometimes end with a chicken dance across the finish line.


    If the rainbow jersey comes with a curse, what happens when you win three? Meet the real Peter Sagan in My World and find out why cycling's most interesting personality never takes winning too seriously.

    Title: Natural Born Heroes: How a Daring Band of Misfits Mastered the Lost Secrets of Strength & Endurance
    Author: MCDOUGALL CHRISTOPHER

    The best-selling author of Born to Run now travels to the Mediterranean, where he discovers that the secrets of ancient Greek heroes are still alive and well on the island of Crete, and ready to be unleashed in the muscles and minds of casual athletes and aspiring heroes everywhere.

    After running an ultramarathon through the Copper Canyons of Mexico, Christopher McDougall finds his next great adventure on the razor-sharp mountains of Crete, where a band of Resistance fighters in World War II plotted the daring abduction of a German general from the heart of the Nazi occupation. How did a penniless artist, a young shepherd, and a playboy poet believe they could carry out such a remarkable feat of strength and endurance, smuggling the general past thousands of Nazi pursuers, with little more than their own wits and courage to guide them?

    McDougall makes his way to the island to find the answer and retrace their steps, experiencing firsthand the extreme physical challenges the Resistance fighters and their local allies faced. On Crete, the birthplace of the classical Greek heroism that spawned the likes of Herakles and Odysseus, McDougall discovers the tools of the hero--natural movement, extraordinary endurance, and efficient nutrition. All of these skills, McDougall learns, are still practiced in far-flung pockets throughout the world today.

    More than a mystery of remarkable people and cunning schemes, Natural Born Heroes is a fascinating investigation into the lost art of the hero, taking us from the streets of London at midnight to the beaches of Brazil at dawn, from the mountains of Colorado to McDougall's own backyard in Pennsylvania, all places where modern-day athletes are honing ancient skills so they're ready for anything.

    Just as Born to Run inspired readers to get off the treadmill, out of their shoes, and into the natural world, Natural Born Heroes will inspire them to leave the gym and take their fitness routine to nature--to climb, swim, skip, throw, and jump their way to their own heroic feats.

    Author: FOURNEL PAUL & STOEKL ALAN (TRANSLATOR)

    "I ride to rest and to tire myself out; I ride to do myself good and to do myself harm" ... one of the many cycling paradoxes explored in this unique and delightful book. "I've never got over this miracle" Starting with the childhood joy of learning to ride a bike, Need for the Bike goes on to relate the agony of climbing, the angst of crashing, and all the other universal moments and feelings which all cyclists will recognise. "To get on a bike is to take possession of the landscape" The sounds, smells, pains and joys of riding with friends or alone, finding things on the road; getting lost, "re-reading" familiar routes; Paul Fournel's classic comes as close as any book has to an encapsulation of why we all need the bike ...

    Title: Niki Lauda: The Biography
    Author: HAMILTON MAURICE

    The most comprehensive and detailed biography of Formula One legend Nick Lauda ever published, as told by Maurice Hamilton, who knew him for more than forty years. From the famous rivalry with James Hunt in the 1970s, as depicted in the film Rush, to working with Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes, Lauda's career helped define modern F1. In 1975, Lauda became world champion for the first time. Driving for Ferrari, he looked to retain his title in 1976 and was dominating the campaign ahead of James Hunt in his McLaren. Then, on 1 August, he was involved in a horrendous crash at the Nurburgring and was badly burned and in hospital he was given the last rites, so severe were his injuries. Remarkably, six weeks later, he was back racing again, determined to show he could still compete. As they came to the final race of the season in Japan, Lauda held a narrow lead in the championship, but in appalling weather conditions, Lauda withdrew from the race, while Hunt went on to secure the points he needed to become world champion. It was high-speed drama at its best. Lauda came back to win the title again in 1977 and then, having temporarily retired, he won it for a third time in 1984, driving for McLaren. When he finally finished as an F1 driver, he started his own airline, before he returned to the sport in various management roles, latterly as chairman of Mercedes, where he helped in the negotiations to bring Lewis Hamilton to the team. Maurice Hamilton, who first met Lauda in 1971, draws together the remarkable story of one of the greatest stars in Formula One history. Based on interviews with friends and family, rival drivers and those he worked with later in his career, Niki Lauda is a superb and definitive tribute to a remarkable character, who died in May 2019 at the age of seventy.

    LONGLISTED FOR THE WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR


    'Personal, political, powerful and about so much more than race and sport.'
    Bernadine Evaristo


    In the eighties, black footballers emerged from the dressing room to find bananas being hurled from the stands. But the abuse didn't stop at the full-time whistle - racial harassment in sport mirrored the experience of many in society.

    As a kid from the East End, Derek Bardowell found solace in the success of black athletes. It is what bonded three generations of his family. Yet even now, success on the field seldom converts to power or justice away from it.

    No Win Race is Bardowell's deeply personal exploration into the complexities and biases implicit in being black in Britain, told through the prism of sport. Covering the period between the Brixton 'riots' and Brexit, this visceral, powerful book is for those who want an honest insight into UK race relations, and for anyone who understands that sport is more than just a game.


    'This searching exploration uses sports to examine questions of race and identity ... Bardowell does an excellent and passionate job of refracting the issues within sport - the dearth of black football managers, the lack of activism from black athletes who have made it into the spotlight - into wider society.' Financial Times


    'A painful reflection of racism in British sport ... Bardowell ably demonstrates the power of the media to determine the narratives around these sporting lives. He flags up the false binaries often promoted between good (patriotic) and bad (self-centred) black sportswomen and men ... it's a valuable act of remembrance of sporting stars who put their careers on the line in pursuit of a moral right.'

    Title: One Simple Thing: A New Look at the Science of Yoga & How It Can Transform Your Life
    Author: STERN EDDIE


    A pragmatic and succinct introduction to the purposes and benefits of yoga--philosophical, physiological, mental, and spiritual

    Yoga is reputed to improve our physical and mental health, and to help us become more productive at work, more caring in relationships, and more responsible contributors to society. If yoga does accomplish all that--and most practitioners will swear it's true--how exactly does it do it? Believe it or not, there are answers. And they are based in how the human body/mind functions, how we are built and wired, and how what we do can direct and change that.


    Drawing on modern neuroscience, ancient wisdom, and decades of practice and teaching, Eddie Stern'sOne Simple Thing explains how what we do affects who we become, and reveals how a steady routine of physical movements, activities, and attitudes are able to transform not just our bodies but our brain functions and emotions, and how we experience life.

    Author: TRUBRIDGE WILLIAM

    The incredible under-water world of William Trubridge. A memoir of an aquatic affinity, the power of the subconscious mind and testing the limits of human physiology. William Trubridge spent his childhood on a sailing boat, waking to the sound of the sea. He set off for New Zealand from the UK with his family as an 18-month-old, spending the next ten years with the ocean as his school and his playground. He suffered a great deal of mental turmoil when eventually his family arrived in Hawke's Bay, where he had to stay on land to attend high-school. Not long after leaving school, William set-off for the Bahamas to learn the art of freediving, a form of breath-hold diving without assistance. He's still there today, where he trains and teaches at Dean's Blue Hole, the deepest sea water sink-hole in the world. Described as 'the greatest freediver of them all,' William Trubridge is a 16 times world freediving record holder. He broke his own world record at Dean's Blue Hole in 2016, a dive he described as 'terrible' - he feared he was going to black out before he reached the surface. In a sport where there are between 40 and 60 fatal accidents every year, it's not surprising William has had his fair share of close calls, one of which took from him his sense of taste. Freediving is one of the oldest and most intriguing relationships humans have with the ocean. It requires building a tolerance to oxygen deprivation and the feeling of suffocation, coping with immense water-column pressure, increasing lung capacity by expanding diaphragm muscles and stretching areas of the body seldom used. William has studied the techniques of sea mammals to test the limits of human physiology, and his experiments make for incredibly gripping reading. But this is not just a book about freediving - it is a book about one man's wonderment with the ocean, its creatures and ecology. Exquisitely written, the book is a meditation on life and death, risk and mental toughness, dharma and discipline. There are also strong messages on overcoming life's adversity, whatever that may be, and how almost everyone's greatest adversary is actually, in the end, one's self.
