The League of Exotic Dancers:Legends from American Burlesque Kaitlyn Regehr, Matilda Temperley
Includes Wilson´s Fourteen Points, inaugural addresses, and his war message to Congress for World War I. As one of the most influential men of the 20th century, there is no shortage of adjectives to use when describing Woodrow Wilson´s two terms as president of the United States. Wilson was a pioneer of the Progressive movement both before and during his presidency, becoming a populist champion a generation before Franklin Roosevelt´s New Deal. He ran for reelection by touting his neutrality during World War I, only to lead his nation into the war and become the architect of a world body that would lead to greater inter-connection among nations. Today Wilson is best remembered for his Fourteen Points, one of the most forceful arguments for an idealistic foreign policy in American history, and his fight for the League of Nations, which set the model for today´s United Nations. Wilson´s presidency was monumentally consequential, but it is not without its critics, nor is the man himself. Even as Wilson has come to be viewed as one of America´s greatest presidents, perception of Wilson and his administration as racist have also taken hold. Despite being one of the early 20th century´s most forceful proponents of a globalized foreign policy, Wilson´s personal views and comments were ardently anti-immigration, and Wilson´s administration entrenched and expanded segregation in the federal government. 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.

A major new book from #1 New York Times bestseller and sports-writing legend John Feinstein, QUARTERBACK dives deep into the most coveted and hallowed position in the NFL - exploring the stories of five top quarterbacks and taking readers inside their unique experiences of playing the position and holding the keys to their multi-billion-dollar teams. In the mighty National Football League, one player becomes the face of a franchise, one player receives all the accolades and all the blame, and one player´s hand will guide the rise or fall of an entire team´s season - and the dreams of millions of fans. There are thirty-two starting quarterbacks in the NFL on any given Sunday, and their lives are built around pressure, stardom, and incredible talent. Legendary bestselling sportswriter John Feinstein, in his most insightful book yet, shows readers what it´s really like to play the glory position and to live that life - mapping out a journey that runs from college stardom to the NFL draft to taking command of the huddle and marching a team down the field with a nation of fans cheering. Feinstein builds his profile around five NFL starting quarterbacks - Alex Smith, Andrew Luck, Joe Flacco, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Doug Williams. With incredible inside access, we get the full quarterback experience...being drafted #1 overall, pushing through grueling injuries, winning Super Bowls, being named a starter on multiple teams, being the first African American QB to lead a franchise to a title. Feinstein shows us exactly what it´s like in the locker room, huddle, heat of battle, and press conferences, through spectacular moments and embarrassing defeats. He explores the controversies of a league embroiled in questions of substance abuse and racism, TV revenue, corporate greed, and the value placed on player health. And in the end, Feinstein addresses the ways in which each quarterback - some just a year out of college -- is handed the keys to a franchise worth billions of dollars, and how each team´s fortunes ride directly on the shoulders of its QB. This is Feinstein´s most fascinating behind-the-scenes book.
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.
