4-0 out of 5 stars From a avowed Yankee Hater
About 1 out of every 2 baseball biographies seems to be about a Yankee.As a Yankee Hater, I loath that.However, I was at the library and decided to try The Big Bam by Leigh Montville.
5-0 out of 5 stars An Exciting Update of Babe Ruth's Legend!
For those of us who grew up listening to baseball games on the radio rather than seeing them on television, this abridged audio is a real treat.Leigh Montville's dramatic story of the Sultan of Swat, the Bambino, the Big Bam, comes to life as Adam Grupper recounts both observed (the "called" home run) and recreated moments in this fine recording.After all, would you rather read about someone hitting the longest home run in a given ball park . . . or listen to a virtually breathless account of the same?I know which I would choose . . . every time!
5-0 out of 5 stars Brings the Bambino to life
When my daughter saw me reading this book she exclaimed, "Don't you know everything about Babe Ruth already?" Well, even if I thought I did, this book made me aware of how little I knew. I had read most of the previous biographies from Tom Meany's to Robert Creamer's. But Leigh Montville's book is the last word on Ruth. What an enormous amount of research he put in, yet he did not let the material overwhelm his subject. The Babe comes through in living color. I don't think any player has ever captured the imagination of the American public more or has been treated more shabbily by the sport he enhanced. I think one reason that Babe Ruth continues to be the gold standard to baseball fans is because, unlike the spoiled players of today who make millions of dollars a year and charge for an autograph, Babe loved being "Babe Ruth." He made appearances for kids, he autographed baseballs, he autographed $20 bills. He gave as much as he received both on and off the field.

5-0 out of 5 stars The most complete book there is...
Better than the Carmichael books, hands down. If you are a noodle around cyclist...this is not for you. However, if you are willing to read the book, do the tests to determine your fitness, and then develop your plan, and stick to it, it will make you a much better cyclist. I went from the back of the pack, struggle to keep up cyclist(got dropped several times) last year, to a front of the pack, much stronger cyclist this year. A buddy and I put togather a program last fall, and followed it thru over the winter, and now we are much better and stronger. The only other factor in my improvement was probably my Computrainer, which I rode all winter long. The workouts, along with the computrainer did the trick. The only downside to the book is that to get the full value of it you need some way to measure watts, and if you don't have the needed equiptment, you may not get the full benefit.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic
This is an excellent resource for anyone wishing to get into or improve on already existing road racing skills.

4-0 out of 5 stars Much better than the competion
I had read all the Chris Carmichael traning books, and found them lacking.There isn't enough detail about what lies behind his programs to allow one to adapt them very well.

4-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Golf Landscape Photography
Emerald Gems is a terrific compilation of golf landscape photographs in a large coffee table type of format (11x12?).Many if not all of the very best courses of Ireland are reviewed.
5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible photos.
This book has incredible beautiful photographs of ALL of the great courses in Ireland and a wonderful written talk about each course. The book is big. It will have to go on the coffee table and not in the bookcase, but it is truly beautiful. Very highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Emerald Gems
In "Emerald Gems", Larry Lambrecht has been able to capture the feel and distinct nuances of the Irish links. The stunning photographs and accompanying stories provide the reader with an incredible sense of how golf was and is meant to be played and enjoyed. David Owen said, "The thing I like best about golf is the sense of infinite possibility..." Emerald Gems presents a real glimpse at that possibility and is a must read for those fortunate to have visited and played, and those who dream of doing so.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough and Insiprational
This is a very thorough and very inspirational book. It details all the possible types of exercises with all the possible types of equipment (and without any equipment as well) that one could do. Just by looking at the clearly drawn pictures, even before reading the explanatory notes accompanying each exercise, you get the idea of how to do it. I enjoyed very much reading about Bill Pearl's career and his overall philosophy about weight-training - his understanding of and approach to weight-training is just as impressive as his physique. Bill calls for natural, drug-free and healthy workouts and lifestyle, not the eat-all-food-you-can-handle-and-more and gain-fast advice that one gets nowadays.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book. Thanks Bill, We needed this!
While many people classify themselves as trainers and experts, who better to get advice from than a man wo won Mr. America, Mr. USA, tied Arnolds record of four NABBA Mr. Universe wins, beat every great champion from the 50's to the 70's including Sergio Oliva, Frank Zane and Reg Park and has been training everyone from Joe Average wanting to get in shape to Mr. Olympia winners like Chris Dickerson.
5-0 out of 5 stars Love this book!
This book is a great reference for all types of exercises. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in setting up resistance training programs, especially those working in the fitness industry. ... Read more

Editorial Review

One of golf guru Jim Flick's mantras is that golf is 90 percent mental, and the other 10 percent is mental, too. Dr. Bob Rotella, a noted sports psychologist and performance consultant, roots around the golfer's mind to expose--and analyze--the doubts, the fears, and the frustrations that haunt anyone who's ever picked up a club and swung it. Through anecdote and aphorism he suggests how these mental and emotional hazards can be played through, and, regardless of skill level, how teeing off with a more positive and confident outlook will translate into better performance. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Great disappointment
This book consists of a lot of name dropping and stories from the world of golfing greats. In the appendix section Dr. Bob Rotella sums up all his golf wisdom in four pages. Reading these pages you get all the information Dr. Bob Rotella has to offer.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Golf Instructional Books You'll Ever Read
I don't think that it's a coincidence that I shot my best score ever after reading this book.Rotella speaks frankly about going through your preshot routine, choosing your target and trusting your swing.Golfers would be far better offpracticing the items mentioned above as opposed to thinking of complicated swing thoughts prior to hitting the ball.This is one golf instructional book that I will refer back to again & again.An outstanding read!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, practical information
Bob's book is probably the single best "self-help" that I have ever read.His principles for improving your golf game don't stop there, they translate into the business world too.I have begun the process of strengthening my mind in order to improve my scores and it is working.It is not a quick fix but a process that takes time.I plan to read the book again in another month to refesh my memory.If you hit great shots on the range but can't take it to the course then you need to read and apply this book to your game. ...

I finished the Honolulu Marathon in good enough condition to walk another couple of miles to the hotel immediately afterwards all thanks to this book. The book touched my life in the way only the best of books can. Your search for a really good first time marathon how-to book is over. Buy it!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good!
They got it down. It's a sixteen week course, providing you are up to speed with the preliminary 11 week training program.(That's the ablility to jog 30 minutes - 4 times a week) I am on my last long run this weekend of week#13 at 18 miles (the first long run was 5 in week 1)and then the last 3 weeks before the marathon is all tapering back. I am confident, and have not a doubt that I am, by this time, a marathoner, and will finish. That is the goal emphasized by the book, and that will be fine by me ...(this time..)!!

5-0 out of 5 stars I just finished about 2 hours ago!
I'm sitting here typing this with salt on my face and a medal around my neck.I have this book to thank for finishing my first marathon, and I couldn't be happier.

5-0 out of 5 stars "Sail on, sail on, sailor..."
Weighing in at a hefty five pounds plus and almost 1000 pages long, this book is as important to your boat as its keel, and almost as dense. First published by Nathaniel Bowditch in 1802 and carried on board every U.S. Navy vessel, THE AMERICAN PRACTICAL NAVIGATOR ("BOWDITCH") is the quintessential seafarer's reference.

I bought this book for my brother who is in the Navy. He said it is required for them to have. He said it has been very helpful. Other then that, I know nothing else about this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A 'must' reference for any serious boater
The 2002 bicentennial edition of Bowditch's American Practical Navigator is a weighty tome prepared and published by the national Imagery and Mapping Agency in Maryland. Packed with international and foreign nautical charts, details on Logan navigation, discussions of navigation regulations and ocean chemistry and properties, and logarithm charts, The American Practical Navigator is a 'must' reference for any serious boater, and for libraries where boaters congregate. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Charming and Informative
This easy-going autobiography combines sunny optimism, seriousness, and rich baseball history. John J. "Buck" O'Neil was a first baseman in the Negro Leagues during the 1930-1940's, and he then spent another half decade in baseball, both in the Negro Leagues and in the majors.Here he recounts his upbringing in Florida during segregation (where he was denied entry to high school) and his long career in baseball.O'Neil details life in the Negro leagues, including barnstorming and low pay, playing for the famed Kansas City Monarchs and his friendship with stars like Satchel Paige and Hilton Smith.He also describes managing in the Negro Leagues, coaching for the Chicago Cubs (the first black coach in the majors) and spending decades as a baseball scout.O'Neil is an intelligent man gifted with great charm, and he's often described as the "ambassador to baseball."That charm shines in the prose of co-writers Steve Wolf and David Conrads, and lets O'Neil attack injustice without losing effectiveness via stridency.
5-0 out of 5 stars A fun read about a forgotten era.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Lou Dials at a Baseball card convention.He was there with a small table, some cards, and some baseballs.I didn't know who he was and he kind of looked out of place.My curiosity made me ask."ok so what are you doing here and I am sorry to ask who are you?"He smiled and asked "Have you ever heard of the Negro leagues?"To which I replied of course and named the common known names such as Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson, Cool Papa Bell, and of course Jackie Robinson and Willie Mays.He smiled and said he played with them and spoke of others such as Buck O'Neil.
5-0 out of 5 stars insight to a great guy
I was lucky enought to attend an All Star game a few years ago. When i was their i wanted to get an autograph i saw a group of guys around one man so i went up got an autograph not knowing who he is. After i saw the signed baseball i made out the name Buck O'neil. I looked him up online and saw he was a negro league player and first black coach in the majors. I then stumbled across his book on here and decided to order it and that turned out to be a great decision as i loved this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Waist Deep
I can see why fans of John Daly would love this book - he portrays himself as the good ol' boy that many golf fans know and adore. But the BS here is waist-deep. The book actually made me sad - there is absolutely nothing to admire about this guy. He has squandered his talent and his money. He tries to portray himself as a champion, but anyone who follows the Tour knows he is the biggest quitter of all time. Whenever he is playing poorly or is out of contention, he throws in the towel - he has probably shot more final rounds in the 80's than any Tour player in history. Bottom line - if you're already a Daly fan, you'll probably love this book. But if you read it wanting to find out more about him, it will reveal him as one gigantic, pathetic waste of talent.

4-0 out of 5 stars A True Character
Though not particuarly well written, this autobiography is nonetheless engaging and entertaining.Many of Daly's personal faults are already well known, so there is not too much in this book anyone will find shocking.Despite what another reviewer wrote, I never felt that Daly was making excuses for his behavior, giving his side of the story and providing more context to the myriad of situations he has created and found himself in over the years.He is by and large unapologetic, which in a way is refreshing.He seems mostly at peace with who he is and his take me or leave me attitude is sad in some respects.His ongoing gambling problem, poor diet, poor romantic choices, binge drinking, etc have kept him from regaining his position as a great golf player.If you like Daly buy the book.He is a definite character and overall a likable one who seems to generally appreciate his fans and those less fortunate than himself.

4-0 out of 5 stars putting it all out there
I enjoyed reading this book. You feel for John. He's a good guy. Some of his unwanted drama is self-inflicted and some not. I can't imagine anyone to be as good as he is with all the distractions. Bottom line, he lives large and doesn't just amble through life. ... Read more

The concepts and techniques I have applied from Zen Golf have really helped my game and my enjoyment of the game.I have read about half of the book so far.I have been able to avoid multiple hole blow-ups and enjoy the round even when it is not the best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Golf Book ever

5-0 out of 5 stars Reviews by Nan Kilar and Bobby Miller
When I worked as the golf professional on Holland America's ms Westerdam, I told our guests that I saw the game of golf as four-dimensional: attitude, set-up, swing and course management. And I don't care if you are a tour player or a beginner, the very first thing that you take out of your bag had better be a good attitude, or you lose.

5-0 out of 5 stars Writing so-so but loved the message of the book
I was appalled to read some of the ignorance in the reveiws of this book about someones experience. I think he captured the spirit and importance forcamps for people with special needs. THe point of the camp wasn't trying to "make' these kids be normal at camp the point was they were haveing a great summer despite their challenges.It wasn't about saying "all the things your suppose to say about handicapped persons" as one review read it was about sharing the initial fears and concern that often people deal with when faced with such a task and showed how it turned to great blessing.I didn't feel this book was about the children but about the change and growth within the writer because of the children.Its a beautiful message that is just a little rough around the edges with the writing skills of the author.

5-0 out of 5 stars From a special needs camp counselor!
Very realistic! Your opinion of campers can change in less then a day. The very first time you see campers getting out of the car you do wonder what the heck you have gotten yourself into but then by the time you have dinner you have already realized what is special about each one of them. This was an excellent book to quickly describe children with various different disabilites.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Acorn People
Camp Wiggins was not a place for medically sanitized facilities, safety rails, or strict activity schedules. It was a place for memories to be made, accomplishments, and fantasies to be fulfilled. By no means were the handicaps of the teens attending this camp would burden this in any way. The Acorn People, by Ron Jones, tells a story of how a camp of handicap teens grow together and accomplish more than they could ever dream of doing at a camp made for boy scouts. In this true story, Ron Jones, the camp counselor of a group that goes above and beyond the expectations of camp, ables these teens to work together to climb Mountain Lookout, swim for the first time, and then struggle with getting the approval of the camp owner Mr. Bradshaw. Over all, this story was emotionally filled as well as giving you a new look on people not as fortunate as those not handicapped.

The ideas and training was really helpful, a good tool for training at home when you have no partner to train with.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not very useful for me
I agree, solo practice is very important. If you have no clue what you could practice alone, are training karate / tkd / krav maga, and fairly novice, there might be some good drills for you.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excelent for beginers, and for Fitness
This is a very good book. Don't look into it though if your a black belt or higher, won't offer too much. This book offers great basic intruction, although it does detail on form, I'd listen to my instructor over this book. It comes from a karate point of view, but the drill are good for all martial art forms. No, there's no great training secrets or anything like that in this book. Any book or person that claims to know a secret of training is lying anyway. These bread and butter (basic) moves and drills will help you become faster and stronger when practiced regualrly. I increased my kicked height and speed, as well as my punching power and speed by using this book. ... Read more

The perfect book for the novice marine aquarium enthusiast.Step by step it tells you how to set up a number of salt water aquariums both small and large with alternative methods of filtration.It also covers which fish do well for the beginner and how they get along with each other.The writing is clear and concise, and when I finished reading and got started with my first tank, there wasn't a single thing I encountered that wasn't covered in the book.Great start for your first tank.Pick this one up.

4-0 out of 5 stars An ok starter...
This book was an ok starter book, but does not delve into great diagnostic detail. I had to purchase another booh for that.

4-0 out of 5 stars great for begginers
I think this book is great for beginners. It really teaches you the basics of the hobby. How to enjoy your aqaurium and stick with it, because it is a hobby that many have lost interest and given up on, due to impatience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ready, Set, Fix
This book was not only very informative, but also a very great read.I thoroughly enjoyed this book and couldn't put it down once I started.Quickly I now have the knowledge I need to continue my work on my project boat.I would recommend this to anyone looking to work with an old boat of any kind.True enough, some tricks here will save you money.

3-0 out of 5 stars I think there are better books out there . . .
This is a good book.It is complete, to be sure.For the expert fiberglass repair person, I cannot speak, but it is certainly difficult to read for an amateur.Generally, a bit much to swallow.I think that other books have similar information more elegantly stated.The fault is not with the content, but the presentation. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Leadership Study.
I found the book engaging and informative.Moreover, we are using it as the core of the current leadership study for our department's management staff for North America and Japan.
4-0 out of 5 stars I had no idea what went into providing the Winter 2002 Games
I honestly had no idea, not the beginning of a notion, of all that has to go on to bring off an Olympic games.Somehow, it seemed to me that these kinds of events have been put on for almost a century.I assumed that the bugs had been worked out and that everyone knew what they were doing, that the funding was well assured, and that there was more or less a well-known road map.In reality, it turns out, that each of Olympics is pretty much a one of a kind; build it all over again kind of thing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended
I'm in my late 30's and have been playing tennis my whole life.I'm a self-rated (USTA) solid 4.5, maybe even a low 5.0 for singles, 4.5 for doubles.
5-0 out of 5 stars Must Read
This book has had a very positive impact on my life. I have suffered with concentration problems for all my life and was recently diagnosed with ADD. I was always told at school that i was intelligent but didnt "try hard enough" and thats why I was failing. But funnily enough trying hard seemed to make things worse for me. My difficulties have led me to being fired from several jobs due to lapses of attention. After reading this book I have been putting the ideas in to practice through the medium of chess (I am an expert level player) and have noticed an improved abiltity to focus my mind. I hope now to move forward in life and repair my shatterd self esteem and gain confidence to take on new challenges. This is a great self help book!.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE LEARNING PROCESS
This book is excellent.As a great believer in learning new things, this book interested me greatly.My tennis has improved enormously,on the mental front firstly.Because of this i can make changes to my game rapidly and without frustration.This advice in the book also helps in other areas of learning.Recently i started to learn spanish and using the inner way of learning i have progressed quickly.Great book you must read it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars This isnt' a "system" or just one component....
Tempo is key to balance, good mechanics, and consistency.By maintaining good tempo, the player keeps his/her body moving positively, avoiding alterations to the swing that come with lingering through it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Tracy
The best money you could ever spend is on this book. If you have good fundamentals this book will make you a better golfer in a very short time. I've been playing golf for about 15 years and had experienced the same tendencies. But once I started to practice with the techniques detailed in this book I hit the ball correctly on a consistent basis. Solid straight shots were the norm. The past few times I was at the range I got the thumbs up from my fellow golfers hitting next to me. Unbelievable simple concept results in wonderful gains on the course.

5-0 out of 5 stars The key to the puzzle... it works!
I go to the Target World Challenge each December and would always play much better for a few days or weeks after the event, knowing that what I picked up from watching the big guys up close was a sense of their swing tempo. But that image would fade away over time and I would lose a clear picture of what the tempo was. I recently dropped my index from 10.5 to 6.4, doing so primarily through improving my swing rhythm or tempo. When my tempo was good I hit better shots and the resulting confidence spilled over into every aspect of my game, but I was unable to quantify what the good tempo was. So when I lost it, I had a hard time recapturing it.
