    Title: Will to Win: NZ Netball Greats on Team Culture & Leadership

    A fascinating deep-dive into the development of the Silver Ferns traditions, the evolution of team culture and the nuts-and-bolts of leadership at an elite sporting level. The 12 legendary players and coaches interviewed including Lois Muir, Leigh Gibbs, Sandra Edge, Bernice Mene, Ruth Aitken and Casey Kopua candidly discuss the highs and lows of their careers, and of the Silver Ferns, the effect of the intense rivalry with Australia, coping with gut-wrenching losses, and the resilience of players and coaches. For the first time the perspective of these key actors is the subject of serious analysis, and the book is a real insight into the psychology of a womens highperformance team. As such, it provides a practical guide for developing team culture and leadership for netball coaches at all levels. It also includes comments from Farah Palmer on women in sport and leadership, and a brief history of New Zealand netball, including the gains and losses as netball moved into a semi-professional era, and the struggles for sponsorship and for media recognition, despite it being New Zealands most popular team sport.

    Title: Windrush: A Ship Through Time
    Author: ARNOTT PAUL

    For three decades the Windrush was the maritime Zelig of the 20th century. Designed in 1930 in the Hamburg boatyard of a Jewish shipbuilder to ferry Germans to a new life in South America, it wasn't long before Goebbels requisitioned her. She became a Nazi troop carrier, a support vessel for the pocket battleship Tirpitz, and a prison ship transporting Jews to Auschwitz. Captured by the British in 1945 and renamed the SS Empire Windrush, she then spent years evacuating displaced service people and, in her famous single voyage from the Caribbean, she brought the first wave of black migrants to Britain. This vivid biography combines the memories of people who were there with a gripping account of an extraordinary merchant ship at the end of empires.

    Title: Yoga for Men: Build Strength, Improve Performance, Increase Flexibility
    Author: POHLMAN DEAN

    Maximise your athletic performance, reduce your post-workout aches, and help prevent injuries with yoga.

    Professional athletes are making yoga a regular part of their fitness routines; and GQ, HuffPost, and Men's Health have all advocated yoga for men. Flexibility is one of the most important, yet overlooked, elements of fitness, and sports success- for example tight hamstrings mean your stride isn't as long when running, or that you can't swing your leg as high when kicking a ball.

    Yoga increases flexibility, building a bigger range of motion and allowing you to work more muscle fibres with every movement. With straightforward language and easy-to-follow steps, Man Yogawill teach you how to execute the 50 key yoga postures you need for greater endurance, flexibility, balance, and strength - no chanting required. It also includes 20 yoga workouts tailored to help you meet specific performance goals, such as core strength or greater power. You'll find that incorporating yoga into your training will help you get stronger, play harder, and feel better.

    The benefits of yoga--greater strength, flexibility, and presence of mind--are for anyone, no matter their skill level.

The poses are illustrated and described in depth, and each one contains variations so that they are accessible to anyone, no matter their flexibility. The back of the book also has sequences geared for practitioners of specific sports, like running, biking, climbing, and so on. As more and more men are encouraged to increase their flexibility, the health advantages of yoga are no longer beyond their reach.
