Book Summary:

A rollicking guided tour of one extraordinary summer, when some of the most pivotal and freakishly coincidental stories all collided and changed the way we think about modern sports The summer of 1984 was a watershed moment in the birth of modern sports when the nation watched Michael Jordan grow from college basketball player to professional athlete and star. That summer also saw ESPN's rise to media dominance as the country's premier sports network and the first modern, commercialized, profitable Olympics. Magic Johnson and Larry Bird's rivalry raged, Martina Navratilova and John McEnroe reigned in tennis, and Hulk Hogan and Vince McMahon made pro wrestling a business, while Donald Trump pierced the national consciousness as a pro football team owner. It was an awakening in the sports world, a moment when sports began to morph into the market-savvy, sensationalized, moneyed, controversial, and wildly popular arena we know today. In the tradition of Bill Bryson's One Summer: America, 1927, L. Jon Wertheim captures these 90 seminal days against the backdrop of the nostalgia-soaked 1980s, to show that this was the year we collectively traded in our ratty Converses for a pair of sleek, heavily branded, ingeniously marketed Nikes. This was the year that sports went big-time.

Book Summary:

Life has a way of taking the life out of us. Often we go through situations where the challenge seems so much greater than our strength. During such times, we can find hope and inspiration from the story of Joshua. God had called Joshua to take over from Moses and lead the Israelites into a paradigm shift from wilderness wandering to promise-believing. In Canaan, they would not fight for victory but fight from victory. God had a Promised Land in store for them, but they had to grasp that reality, change their mindsets, and take action to receive it. The same is true for us today. God is telling us that our best days—our “glory days”—are still ahead of us. We only need to grasp that truth and live in faith to realize this promise. This six-session video Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately) includes leader helps, discussion questions, conversation starters, and between-session activities to enhance your understanding and application of Max’s teaching. Sessions include: These Days Are Your Glory Days Inherit Your Inheritance Walk Circles Around Jericho Pray Audacious Prayers No Falling Words God Fights for You Designed for use with Glory Days Video Study (sold separately).

Book Summary:

"A collection of ten stories and two novellas. Some of the stories are about the Glory Days each of us might be lucky enough to experience, no matter how fleeting those days might seem in lives well lived. Others of the stories are about people less admirable whose Glory Days might not seem so to all but themselves. Yet others are episodes in the lives of people, individuals and couples that reveal their humanity; good, bad and indifferent. For all that, each story stands alone as a tale with no particular message or function other than to provide for the readers entertainment"--Back cover.

Book Summary:

The Shamrock Tavern is a working-class bar, a place where the blue-collar regulars would gather for a pint or two on their way home from work. But once hockey season began, Saturday would become the night to be at the Shamrock, to watch the Hockey Night in Canada, to cheer the home team, to share the comaraderie of the common man. The Shamrocks best days are behind her when Tim Whittaker stumbles in from the cold November night. Once, when he was a boy, he had been a dedicated hockey fan. All that ended however with the death of his father, with whom he had shared the game. But this night, rather than spend another Saturday evening alone, he decides to stay awhile and watch the game on the TV behind the bar. Eddie Ross spent seventeen seasons as a minor league goaltender, toiling in relative obscurity in towns like Omaha and Toledo. After his career comes to an end, Eddie returns home to Toronto where he discovered the Shamrock, a place that would be his refuge, its regulars his family, for the better part of the next forty years. Ruth Callaghan inherited the Shamrock from her parents. Now she is faced with the reality that it is failing as a business. When a developer makes her an offer too good to be true, she must face the hardest decision of her life: Does she sell the tavern and give up the only life she has ever known or does she continue to fight a losing battle and take whatever comes? Glory Days tells the story of how these three individuals come together to reawaken ones love of the game, anothers pride in his past and gives the third the courage to break free. Rich in nostalgia and character, the book is a must-read for any hockey fan and a compelling story of human compassion for everyone.

Book Summary:

Broadhalfpenny Down is the Mecca of cricket. The Bat and Ball Inn across the road is pavilion to the whole cricket world. This is the home of the legendary 18th-century Hambledon Club. Every cricketer wants to visit it because they know this is where cricket began. Only it didn't.That Broadhalfpenny Down is the birthplace of cricket is one of the most well-established myths in sporting history. Yet this ground still holds a unique place in the history of the game. It is where a simple country pastime evolved into a national sport; where the crude techniques of the first players evolved into subtler skills.Between the 1750s and late 1790s, Broadhalfpenny Down staged the biggest matches and fielded the most famous team, playing 'all' England 51 times and winning on 29 occasions - often in front of 20,000 spectators.Here for the first time since 1907 is a full account of the events of more than 200 years ago. Extensively researched and compiled, and updated for this 2015 ebook edition, its author Ashley Mote played competitive club cricket for more than 50 years. He is a non-playing member of numerous cricket clubs. A former journalist, scriptwriter, and businessman, he now writes non-fiction.

Book Summary:

A tribute to a fish, a sport, and a time now past . . . Through a series of chance encounters over several years, fishing guide and journalist Brandon Shuler unearthed multiple drafts of a nearly finished manuscript by an almost forgotten Texas sports writer, Hart Stilwell. Titled “Glory of the Silver King,”the manuscript vividly captured the history of tarpon and snook fishing on the Texas and Mexico Gulf Coast from the 1930s to the end of Stilwell’s life in the early 1970s. Stilwell was a seasoned outdoors journalist with a passion for salt-water fishing. Now, with Shuler’s careful research, editing, and annotation, this lost manuscript has found new life as both an entertaining “fish tale” and a historical snapshot of a region’s natural heritage. It successfully conveys the thrill of fishing for these once abundant species at the same time it tracks—and laments—the rise, decline, and eventual fall of their fisheries in Texas (which Shuler is able to report are now experiencing a rebound). In a personal and informative introduction, Shuler paints a portrait of Stilwell and tells the story of the discovery and evolution of the manuscript. He also provides a look into his own life as an angler and writer, creating a connection with Stilwell that gives the work authenticity and relevance. Anglers will delight in Stilwell’s rollicking prose. Environmentalists will appreciate the book’s lesson in ocean conservation. For all who live on or near the Gulf Coast, Glory of the Silver King reintroduces a forgotten literary treasure and a magnificent fish that once filled the waters at our favorite coastal retreats. "Hart Stilwell was a world-class raconteur and storyteller. His unpublished manuscript on the glory days of coastal fishing became an underground legend, passed around like a sacred totem for decades. Editor Brandon Shuler has revived Stilwell’s folksy charm and penetrating insights, and the result is this engaging and important book."--Steven L. Davis, curator, The Wittliff Collections

Book Summary:

Roger Mudd joined CBS in 1961, and as the congressional correspondent, became a star covering the historic Senate filibuster debate over the 1964 Civil Right Act. Mudd was one of half a dozen major figures in the stable of CBS News broadcasters at time when the network's standing as a provider of news was at its peak. In The Place to Be, Mudd tells of how the bureau worked: the rivalries, the egos, the pride, the competition, the ambitions and the gathering frustrations of conveying the world to a national television audience in thirty minutes minus commercials. It is the story of a unique TV news bureau, unmatched in its quality, dedication, and professionalism, that will highlight what TV journalism was once like and what it's missing today.

Book Summary:

Pamela Sargent's latest collection assembles 10 of her recent stories, including "Puss in D.C.," "Strawberry Birdies," and "A Smaller Government," showing why she's one of the most popular authors currently writing science fiction today. From the introduction by Eleanor Arnason: "Sargent has a quality usually associated with hard SF: a certain kind of intellectual rigor. With her, it carries through all of her work. She thinks things through. ... Notice, when you read this collection, how many different kinds of stories are here and notice the range of moods: the stories go from really funny to really dark, with a lot in between. ... I also want to mention Sargent's persistence. Writing is a hard life. Many good woman writers I admired in the 1970s, '80s and '90s have vanished. They stopped writing or stopped trying to sell their fiction or changed their names and moved to writing romance, gay romance, generic fantasy -- whatever they could sell. In one way or another, they were silenced. Sargent has kept doing thoughtful, serious fiction, dealing with the issues that interested her."

"As David Maraniss captures it with power and affection, Detroit summed up America's path to music and prosperity that was already past history. It's 1963 and Detroit is on top of the world. The city's leaders are among the most visionary in America. It was the American auto makers' best year; the revolution in music and politics was underway. Reuther's UAW had helped lift the middle class. The time was full of promise. Once in a Great City shows that the shadows of collapse were evident even then. Detroit at its peak was threatened by its own design. It was being abandoned by the new world. Yet so much of what Detroit gave America lasts."--
