    Author: CAVENDISH MARK

    The most anticipated sports autobiography of the year from Britain's most exciting athlete. Mark Cavendish is quite simply the most exciting thing in world cycling. With his self-belief and smouldering competitive fire, Cav has turned the animalistic hunger to win into an art form. Cycling bible L''Equipe has responded to his staggering success by naming him the best sprinter in the history of Tour de France. In "Boy Racer," published by Ebury in 2009, Cav told of his early years, culminating in his first experiences of the Tour. Since then his career has advanced at a lightning pace. He has clocked up another three record-breaking years in the Tour, becoming the first Brit to win a jersey in 25 years and the first ever to win green; sailing to final-stage victory on the Champs-Elysees for an unheard of four consecutive years. He won green in Spain's Vuelta in 2010 and spent the 2012 season in the World Champion's rainbow jersey; making him the first British cyclist in 50 years since Tom Simpson to win the World Championship road race. As well as being one of Britain's most successful sportsmen he's also the most popular, winning half the votes to become the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year in 2011. But no one has ever claimed that being one of cycling's elite is easy. In 2012 Cav joined Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome at Team Sky. Still relentlessly ambitious, he had to learn his role within this hugely talented team, even at the expense of his own individual interests. And despite Team Sky's success at the 2012 Tour, Cav had to contain his disappointment when events conspired against them in the Olympic Road race a month later. "Cav" tells his very personal story of the journey to the top, and gets to the heart of the pain and the passion, and the guts and the glory of professional cycling.

    Sport changes your brain. The minds of elite athletes can pull off feats of anticipation and co-ordination that amateurs would find impossible. The athletic brain has been trained through hours and hours of practice - years of sweat and toil. But what if there were a shortcut to training your brain?

    Cognitive training tools offer the tantalising possibility of breaking the '10,000-hour rule'. Top-level athletes and teams are increasingly tapping into new knowledge of the brain to develop tools and techniques that can offer a shortcut to sporting success, or push the boundaries of performance beyond its current limits. Increasingly, these tools are becoming available to the ordinary amateur, revolutionising the ways in which anyone can improve their skills.

    Based on interviews with top athletes and the scientists working at the cutting edge of our knowledge, Amit Katwala provides a fascinating insight into the possibilities that are becoming open to us all. He takes us to see how Borussia Dortmund's 'Footbonaut' and touchscreen-based games in the NFL have been achieving excellent results. As with bestsellers such as The Chimp Paradoxand Bounce, by the end of this book, readers will look at sporting performance in a new light, and be able to apply these insights to their own lives.

    Author: WOLFF ALEXANDER

    While basketball didn t take up residence in the White House in January 2009, the game nonetheless played an outsized role in forming the man who did. In "The Audacity of Hoop, "celebrated sportswriter Alexander Wolff examines Barack Obama, the person and president, by the light of basketball. This game helped Obama explore his identity, keep a cool head, impress his future wife, and define himself as a candidate.

    Wolff chronicles Obama s love of the game from age 10, on the campaign trail where it eventually took on talismanic meaning and throughout his two terms in office. More than 125 photographs illustrate Obama dribbling, shooting free throws, playing pickup games, cooling off with George Clooney, challenging his special assistant Reggie Love for a rebound, and taking basketball to political meetings. There is also an assessment of Obama s influence on the NBA, including a dawning political consciousness in the league s locker rooms.

    Sidebars reveal the evolution of the president s playing style, Baracketology a not-entirely-scientific art of filling out the commander in chief s NCAA tournament bracket and a timeline charts Obama s personal and professional highlights.

    Equal parts biographical sketch, political narrative, and cultural history, "The Audacity of Hoop "shows how the game became a touchstone in Obama s exercise of the power of the presidency. "

    Author: COPELAND MISTY

    The celebrated ballerina and role model, Misty Copeland, shares the secrets of how to reshape your body and achieve a lean, strong physique and glowing health.
    Misty Copeland believes -There has been a shift in recent years in which women no longer desire the bare bones of a runway model. Standards have changed: what women do want is a long, toned, powerful body with excellent posture.- In other words, the body of a ballerina. In her first health and fitness book, Misty will show women how to find the motivation to get healthier and stronger, and how to reshape their bodies to be lean and flexible, with step-by-step advice, meal plans, workout routines, and words of inspiration. Celebrating the importance of healthy fats and a fitness regimen based on ballet exercises, Misty shares her own time-tested exercises and an eating plan focusing on healthy fats, both of which keep her in top shape. Tips for motivation and words of encouragement as well as tips on how to keep going even when you may want to give up. An inspiring section on the importance of finding mentors, and eventually being one, plus excerpts from Misty's personal journal, round out this important book on grace and strength.

    Title: Barbarian Days: a Surfing Life
    Author: FINNEGAN WILLIAM

    Reading this guy on the subject of waves and water is like reading Hemingway on bullfighting; William Burroughs on controlled substances; Updike on adultery. . . . a coming-of-age story, seen through the gloss resin coat of a surfboard. "Sports Illustrated"
    ""
    "Barbarian Days" is William Finnegan s memoir of an obsession, a complex enchantment. Surfing only looks like a sport. To initiates, it is something else: a beautiful addiction, a demanding course of study, a morally dangerous pastime, a way of life.
    Raised in California and Hawaii, Finnegan started surfing as a child. He has chased waves all over the world, wandering for years through the South Pacific, Australia, Asia, Africa. A bookish boy, and then an excessively adventurous young man, he went on to become a distinguished writer and war reporter. "Barbarian Days" takes us deep into unfamiliar worlds, some of them right under our noses off the coasts of New York and San Francisco. It immerses the reader in the edgy camaraderie of close male friendships forged in challenging waves.
    Finnegan shares stories of life in a whites-only gang in a tough school in Honolulu. He shows us a world turned upside down for kids and adults alike by the social upheavals of the 1960s. He details the intricacies of famous waves and his own apprenticeships to them. Youthful folly he drops LSD while riding huge Honolua Bay, on Maui is served up with rueful humor. As Finnegan s travels take him ever farther afield, he discovers the picturesque simplicity of a Samoan fishing village, dissects the sexual politics of Tongan interactions with Americans and Japanese, and navigates the Indonesian black market while nearly succumbing to malaria. Throughout, he surfs, carrying readers with him on rides of harrowing, unprecedented lucidity.
    "Barbarian Days "is an old-school adventure story, an intellectual autobiography, a social history, a literary road movie, and an extraordinary exploration of the gradual mastering of an exacting, little-understood art.
    Praise for "Barbarian Days"
    Without a doubt, the finest surf book I ve ever read . . . But on a more fundamental level, "Barbarian Days" offers a clear-eyed vision of American boyhood. Like Jon Krakauer s "Into the Wild," it is a sympathetic examination of what happens when literary ideas of freedom and purity take hold of a young mind and fling his body out into the far reaches of the world. " The New York Times Magazine"
    ""
    Incandescent . . . I d sooner press this book upon on a nonsurfer, in part because nothing I ve read so accurately describes the feeling of being stoked or the despair of being held under. . . . But] it s also about a writer s life and, even more generally, a quester s life, more carefully observed and precisely rendered than any I ve read in a long time. " Los Angeles Times""

    Title: Basin an Illustrated History of Wellingtons Basin Reserve
    Author: NEELEY DON & ROMANOS JOE

    Wellington's Basin Reserve is arguably the most famous sports ground in New Zealand. It is certainly the only one that has been granted National Heritage Place status. Since it was created by a major earthquake in 1855, it has constantly been reshaped, modernised and renovated. Through all that time, it has remained one of the major landmarks in the capital city. The Basin, as it is affectionately known, has been one of New Zealand's main international cricket venues for well over a century, and has hosted international rugby league, rugby union, soccer, hockey, athletics, boxing, Australian rules football and marching. In addition, the Basin has hosted non-sports events as diverse as the 1945 VE Day celebrations, the 1908 Dominion Day activities, Archbishop Redwood's Diamond jubilee gathering in 1934, Father Patrick Payton's prayer meeting in front of 25,000 people in 1953, numerous band displays, Maori carnivals in 1900 and 1903, the Concert in the Park featuring Dame Malvina Major in 1994, and a display of ballooning in 1898 by Captain Lorraine, 'the king of parachutists'. Wellington writers Don Neely and Joseph Romanos have delved widely in presenting this pictorial history of the Basin. Many of the images have never previously been published. This is a story not only of the Basin Reserve but of a busy and ever-changing part of Wellington, including the Mt Victoria Tunnel, the Mt Cook Barracks, the Carillon, Wellington College, St Mark's, St Patrick's College, St Joseph's School, Wellington East Girls' College, the Boys' Institute, the Caledonian Hotel, Government House and other neighbouring landmarks.

    Title: Basketball (& Other Things)
    Author: SERRANO SHEA

    Michael Jordan is the acknowledged greatest basketball player of all-time, but what season was Michael Jordan the best version of Michael Jordan? Who's in The Disrespectful Dunk Hall of Fame? What's allowed and absolutely not allowed in a game of pickup basketball? Basketball (and Other Things) presents listeners with a set of pivotal and ridiculous questions 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 authoritative (Which NBA championship was the most important to the league?) to the fantastical (If you could assign different values to different shots throughout basketball history, what would they be and why?). Featuring a foreword by Reggie Miller, 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.

    Author: GRYLLS BEAR

    Bear Grylls is one of the world's most famous survivors. Bear Grylls: Two All-Action Adventures combines two of his greatest adventures told in Facing Up and Facing the Frozen Ocean.
    At the age of twenty-three, Bear Grylls became one of the youngest Britons to reach the summit of Mount Everest. At extreme altitude youth holds no advantage over experience, nevertheless, only two years after breaking his back in a freefall parachuting accident, he overcame severe weather conditions, fatigue and dehydration to stand on top of the world's highest mountain. Facing Up is the story of his adventure, his courage and humour, his friendship and faith. Facing the Frozen Ocean tells of a carefully calculated attempt to complete the first unassisted crossing of the frozen north Atlantic in an open rigid inflatable boat. But this expedition became a terrifying battle against extreme elements and icebergs as large as cathedrals.

    Title: Beast, the Emperor & the Milkman: A Bone-Shaking Tour Through Cycling's Heartlands
    Author: PEARSON HARRY


    Cycling is wildly popular all over Belgium, but in the northern, Dutch-speaking half of the country it is part of the psyche. Tiny Flanders boasts a population of just 6 million, yet this small corner of northwest Europe has produced eight winners of the Tour de France, five times as many professional riders as Italy or Spain.


    Blending reportage, interviews, observation, biography, and history, and written with affectionate humor by a committed Belgophile, The Beast, the Emperor and the Milkman tells the story of Flanders' neurotic love affair with bike racing, from tough early heroes such as Jules Vanhevel--wounded by mortar fire in World War I and leading the world championship road race until he collided with a cow--to latter-day ironmen such as Tom Boonen, three-times winner of the Tour of Flanders and owner of a pet donkey named Kamiel.
