A powerful biography of one of the greatest football players of all time, in the spirit of Johnny U and Namath. No one can touch Bart Starr´s record setting 5 NFL Championships, including 3 straight. America´s Quarterback tells the story of the man who helped create the legend of Vince Lombardi and the Green Bay Packers. Set against the changing landscape of the last half of the 20th century, this biography traces Starr’s life from childhood in Alabama to stardom in Green Bay and beyond. Not a simple sports story, Dunnavant traces the story of one man reaching for the American dream while professional football emerged from the shadows to capture the nation’s imagination. It’s a story of the tension between a coach and a player as different as fire and ice, and how they came to trust and revere each other. It’s a story of triumph tempered by tragedy, and the world-class athlete who quietly and persistently, achieved a level of greatness unsurpassed by any quarterback since. A remarkable blend of personal memory and historical narrative, America’s Quarterback is a tribute to an American hero and the perfect companion to the classic When Pride Still Mattered. 1.

Lifelong baseball fanatic and former college ball player Abe Streep had long since grown disillusioned with the slick spectacle of modern major-league baseball when he discovered the Santa Fe Fuego, a scrappy upstart team struggling through its first season in an independent professional league that few baseball fans had even heard of. The Fuego players were paid barely fifty dollars a week. They slept on the couches of sympathetic fans and cleaned up the trash in the ballpark themselves after games. As the last place team in the least-prestigious professional league in America, they had acquired a unique distinction: They were officially the worst professional baseball team in America.The Fuego might not have been winners, but they were fighters and dreamers, willing to suffer the indignities and disappointments of life in the minor minor leagues for a shot - however remote - at the big time. In The Legends of Last Place, Streep spends a season with the team and its members - the grizzled Vietnam veteran coach with his number tattooed on his back, the pitcher attempting his third comeback as the oldest pro in the game, the one-time Mets recruit fallen on hard times - and finds something he thought had gone missing from professional baseball: its heart.´´Another title for Abe Streep´s hilarious and heartbreaking account of the ups, downs, and farther downs of life in indy baseball might be The Catastrophic News Bears, yet somehow it´s never depressing. This wonderful story is about so much more than baseball.´´-Tom Bissell, author of Magic Hours and Extra Lives´´If you love baseball, you will find The Legends of Last Place irresistible; if you love clear, lucid prose, you will find it a pleasure. I happen to love both, so The Legends of Last Place had me from the very first sentence.´´-Daniel Okrent, author of Nine Innings and Last Call 1. Language: English. Narrator: Abe Streep.

In the late 1940s, the minor league Milwaukee Brewers are foundering yet again and manager Arthur Murphy is desperate. When he sees 17-year-old Mickey Tussler throwing apples into a barrel, he knows he has found the next pitching phenom. But not everyone is so hopeful. Mickey’s autism - a disorder still not truly understood even today - has alienated the boy from the world, and he is berated by other players and fans. Mickey faces immense trials in the harsh and competitive world of baseball while coping with the challenges inherent to his disorder. An honest and knowledgeable book about overcoming adversity, and the basis for the television movie A Mile in His Shoes, Mickey’s powerful story shows that with support and determination anyone can be triumphant, even when the odds are stacked against him. 1.

This book is the most in-depth and detailed guide created on teaching players how to crush their lane opponent in League of Legends. It´s a bold statement, but I can back it up. The book will teach you everything you need to know about completely dominating over your lane matchup (which, by the way, sometimes feels better than winning). I´ve tried extremely hard to break down every micro-aspect of over 60 of the game mechanics that come into play during laning. I´ve broken down every single concept into the most simple, understandable terms that even a new player will grasp. Believe it or not, there are that many possible micro and macro aspects that go into laning. It´s an art. Once you listen to this book, you will be aware of things you never really stopped to think about before. If this book doesn´t get you prepared for any possible situation you might face during laning...nothing will. Here are a few of the things you are going to learn once you get the book: The five-step formula to winning every trade in lane, which works 100% of the times How to build up huge advantages over your opponent by capitalizing on the small mistakes they make How to manage the minion waves in the same way Challenger and Pro players do it How to never depend on your jungler´s actions anymore What to do when you are behind in lane, and how to actually come ahead - how to stomp your opponent to the point of completely tilting the whole enemy team How to deal with any possible situation in the laning phase How to abuse your advantage and get the maximum out of every situation Enjoy the progress you are going to experience in your ranked games! 1.

For the last three hundred years, these mortal enemies have fought over space, land, and politics, but now a new threat loons just outside the Inner Sphere.

As a Master Tier player on both EUW and EUNE servers that cares deeply about the state of League of Legends, I had enough of the lack of high quality educational material about the game. So about a year ago, I sat down and wrote what turned out to be the best-selling book about improving at League of Legends on Amazon - 30 Days to Diamond. I used my experience as a real life teacher and a high elo player to create the most detailed, effective and complete source of game knowledge out there. The impact 30 Days to Diamond had on hundreds of players was enormous and I have summarized the results they achieved in the preface of this book. The book made a bold promise - that no matter what level of skill you are currently at, as long as you apply the principles it teaches, you will be able to reach Diamond Five rank within 30 days of playing on a fresh account. Mind you, that´s regardless of whether you started as a Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum or a completely new player that has just installed the game. The reason why the book delivered on its promise for so many people was simple. I was aware that no matter what your starting point is, as long as you fill in the knowledge gaps that you have about the game and you apply the proven principles that my book teaches, you will completely transform as a player over a short period of time. There are no ifs, buts or shoulds - facts are facts and results are results. Well, due to multiple requests from dozens of people online, I was motivated to roll up my sleeves again for Season Seven. So I wrote the book you are about to listen to next - 21 Days to Diamond and Beyond. It is a longer and more detailed, improved, enriched and polished version of 30 Days to Diamond and it has been created specifically for Season Seven. Please don´t get intimidated by the length of it - I assure you that it is worth your time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin F. Spalding.

Here is the definitive biography of Satchel Paige, an all-American story of struggle and triumph about the greatest pitcher to ever throw a baseball. In his hometown streets of Mobile, Alabama, Satchel Paige fired rocks with enough power and precision to bring down a bird or a rival gang member. In the Negro Leagues he fine-tuned a pitch so fast that catchers complained it set their mitts on fire. After a young Joe DiMaggio managed a scratch a single off of him, a Yankees scout wired his bosses, ´´DiMaggio all we hoped he´d be. Hit Satch one for four.´´ But racial discrimination kept the Yankees and every other big-league team from signing Paige until he was 42, when he was voted Rookie of the Year. While many dismissed him as a Stepin Fetchit, if not an Uncle Tom, this book makes clear that Paige was something else entirely, a quiet subversive, defying both Uncle Tom and Jim Crow. He pitched so spectacularly that white writers and fans turned out to watch black baseball. He drew the spotlight first to himself, then to his all-black Kansas City Monarchs, and inevitably to the Monarch´s rookie second baseman Jackie Robinson. In the process, Satchel, even more than Jackie, opened the door for African Americans to the national pastime and forever changed his sport and this nation. 1. Language: English.
