'One of the World's all-time great leaders'Professor Anita Elberse, Harvard Business SchoolWhat does it take to lead a team to world-class success over a sustained period of time?Sir Alex Ferguson is one of the few leaders who truly knows. In his 38 years in management, Sir Alex won an astonishing 49 trophies and helped grow Manchester United into one of the biggest commercial brands in the world. In this inspirational and straight-talking book, Sir Alex reveals the secrets behind his record-breaking career.LEADING is structured around the key skills that Sir Alex values most highly. It includes subjects we immediately associate with his managerial style: Discipline, Control, Teamwork and Motivation. But it also addresses subjects that are less obvious but no less important when seeking success: Delegation, Data Analysis and Dealing with Failure.Written with the investor Sir Michael Moritz, a longstanding friend of Sir Alex, LEADING is packed with insight, wisdom, humour and honesty. The individual stories inevitably concern themselves with football, and the phenomenal success that came along the way, but the lessons can be applied by anyone. Whether you run a business, teach in a classroom, or work in a small team, LEADING will help you become a better leader.

The History of Dings Crusaders Rugby Club: A Club with its Heart in Bristol
In 1897 Herbert William Rudge founded Dings Crusaders Rugby Club as a part of the Dings Boys Club. The Boys Club was one of the activities of the Shaftesbury Crusade, a Christian and social mission founded in the 1880s in the Dings, a notorious area of poverty and degradation in the St Philips area of Bristol. This book tells the story of how the rugby club grew from humble beginnings to competing in the 4th tier of English rugby. The club's move to Lockleaze in 1948 established close links with the community and local schools, and the publication of this history coincides with Dings Crusaders' move to a new home, Shaftesbury Park, heralding an exciting new chapter in the club's story.

Computational Metrics for Soccer Analysis: Connecting the Dots: 2018
This book provides an account of the use of computational tactical metrics in improving sports analysis, in particular the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) data in soccer. As well as offering a practical perspective on collective behavioural analysis, it introduces the computational metrics available in the literature that allow readers to identify collective behaviour and patterns of play in team sports. These metrics only require the bio-dimensional geo-referencing information from GPS or video-tracking systems to provide qualitative and quantitative information about the tactical behaviour of players and the inter-relationships between teammates and their opponents. Exercises, experimental cases and algorithms enable readers to fully comprehend how to compute these metrics, as well as introducing them to the ultimate performance analysis tool, which is the basis to run them on. The script to compute the metrics is presented in Python. The book is a valuable resource for professional analysts as well students and researchers in the field of sports analysis wanting to optimise the use of GPS trackers in soccer.

The Red Journey: An Oral History of Liverpool Football Club
Winning eighteen league championships, four European Cups, a Champions League title, seven FA Cups and eight League Cups makes Liverpool Football Club one of the most successful football club in England. This is the football club touched by the greatest managers, the club, indeed, where the cult of the manager began. Liverpool had been great before but not for some time until Billy Shankly arrived, ordaining it the original People's Club because of the passion of its supporters. Liverpool proceeded to dominate the European scene under Bob Paisley, the quietly ruthless genius. Kenny Dalglish - considered the club's greatest player - later turned Liverpool into the country's most stylish team when he took charge of the team. Dalglish might stand in his own league but many other greats have touched the famous This is Anfield sign wearing Liverpool red: from Ian Callaghan, the club's record appearance holder, to Phil Neal, the club's most decorated player, to Graeme Souness and Steven Gerrard, arguably Liverpool's most iconic captains. It was often thought the beauty of Liverpool's brilliance was the simplicity behind it and yet, few rivals were able to crack the Liverpool code.As Liverpool enters its 125th year, The Red Journey: An Oral History of Liverpool Football Club tells the story of the club through the voices of the people who made the institution one of the most revered in football.

Bayern: Creating a Global Superclub
Bayern Munich is a team of extremes. They are the most passionately supported club in Germany and the most hated. There is no doubt that they are the most successful. Winners of twenty-four domestic titles since the late-1960s, they have stood at the pinnacle of European football for almost their entire existence. German football is in the spotlight like never before and Bayern are at the forefront. While Germany have become World Champions, Bayern have been to the Champion's League final for three of the last six years, collecting their fifth winners medal along the way and revolutionising the way they play. And they've done it all without billionaire tycoon owners, record transfer deals, eye-watering debts or charging supporters an arm and a leg for tickets. Through interviews with the key protagonists, Uli Hesse tells the story of this unique club. From early run-ins with the Nazis to being dubbed FC Hollywood for their egocentric stars in the 1990s up to the sensational undercover appointment of the best coach in the world, Pep Guardiola, Hesse opens the doors on Bavaria's superpower and takes you inside Bayern Munich.

The Chosen Game: A Jewish Basketball History
A few years after its invention by James Naismith, basketball became the primary sport in the crowded streets of the Jewish neighborhood on New York's Lower East Side. Participating in the new game was a quick and enjoyable way to become Americanized. Jews not only dominated the sport for the next fifty-plus years but were also instrumental in modernizing the game. Barney Sedran was considered the best player in the country at the City College of New York from 1909 to 1911. In 1927 Abe Saperstein took over management of the Harlem Globetrotters, playing a key role in popularizing and integrating the game. Later he helped found the American Basketball Association and introduced the three-point shot. More recently, Nancy Lieberman played in a men's pro summer league and became the first woman to coach a men's pro team, and Larry Brown became the only coach to win both NCAA and the NBA championships. While the influence of Jewish players, referees, coaches, and administrators has gradually diminished since the mid-1950s, the current basketball scene features numerous Jews in important positions. Through interviews and lively anecdotes from franchise owners, coaches, players, and referees, The Chosen Game explores the contribution of Jews to the evolution of present-day pro basketball.

Do you keep a can of chaw in your work bag? Do you have a few recipes for squirrel in your back pocket? You're not alone, so do the authors of The Total Redneck Manual.

Do you spend a lot of time a. huntin' b. fishin' c. cussin' or d. all of the above? In The Total Redneck Manual, there is no wrong answer.

Whether you're cruising in your pickup yelling truck yeah, have a bird dog named Buddy, consider yourself a dime store cowgirl, or are aspiring to all three, there's something in this country-fried cultural document for you.

This is a loving celebration of an all-American cultural icon, but it's also a hands-on working book that can help anyone better enjoy the great outdoors. In true Field & Stream fashion, it offers tried and true tips on 200+ essentials from picking the right hunting dog to fixing just about anything with duct tape and paracord, to frying up catfish and hushpuppies just like grandma used to make.

But being a redneck isn't all hunting and fishing. It's . . . largely hunting and fishing, according to the authors. But you'll also learn how to open a beer bottle with just about anything, spit with deadly accuracy, and kit out the truck of your dreams.

So, kick off your boots, crack open a cold one, take a seat on the porch, and learn from the best.

Powered by Porsche - The Alternative Race Cars
Powered by Porsche - the Alternative Race Cars is a detailed account of the racing cars that were powered by Porsche engines, but where the chassis and development of the car was carried out by others.The Porsche company in Zuffenhausen, Germany, can probably be said to be the most successful marque ever for victories in the motor racing scene. Likewise many firsts in innovation have come with the name Porsche attached. Then there are the builders of racing cars, some major producers, such as Elva, Lotus, Lola, March, all at some time featured a Porsche engine in their chassis. In the late 1970s and into the 1980s, the demand for the services and supply of cars, chassis, and parts from Porsche, outstripped their ability to deliver. Plus with many new projects in the rapidly expanding Porsche organisation, race car projects had to be prioritised. This would lead to the creation of the replicas, as opposed to the factory built works race cars, even Porsche was building 'replica' 935s to supply to clients, this was to continue into the 962 era. In turn a whole new highly specialised high quality industry grew up to meet the demand for Porsche-powered racers. In this book we see the racing cars, the teams and the people who turned to Porsche to utilise the power from, perhaps, the greatest of all engine makers.This is thought to be first book on the subject, covering the entire history of Porsche engines, detailed engine specifications, non-Porsche chassis, and race details, as well as team history with anecdotes from drivers. It is illustrated with many previously unpublished photos, and provides fascinating reading for the enthusiast and newcomer alike.

Defying Expectations: Phil Rawlins and the Orlando City Soccer Story
As an expansion Major League Soccer team, the Orlando City Soccer Club marked the return of professional soccer to Florida for the first time since 2001, selling out the sixty-thousand-seat Citrus Bowl for their home opener and going on to have the second-highest home attendance for the 2015 and 2016 seasons. It was the successful culmination of a nine-year process orchestrated by the team's owner, Phil Rawlins, who sold his successful sales consultancy company for a shot at sports ownership and a chance to tap into America's growing interest in pro soccer. Rawlins was relentless in building a franchise from the ground up, overcoming crippling setbacks, devious politics, and near financial ruin. Underpinning his efforts was a deep commitment to re-creating the tribal passion and community spirit of his hometown team in the United Kingdom, Stoke City, for which he served as board member for fourteen years. The payoff was the Orlando City Soccer Club, an attractive new team that galvanized the region. The subsequent acquisition of international superstar Ricardo Kaka catapulted the club to celebrity status and ensured that its debut season defied expectations. Defying Expectations gives insight into the challenges faced on the road to success, challenges through which Rawlins has remained focused on the six core values that he and his wife formulated at their kitchen table years ago, continuing to foster a community institution that gives back as much as it receives.

Festival Fever: The Irish at Cheltenham
It is said the land level of Ireland rises a few feet every March because so many people have left for the National Hunt Festival at Cheltenham. English-Irish rivalry at this pinnacle of jump racing has always been keen but it has risen to new levels in the 21st Century, with many Irish winners across all the races, including the Gold Cup, Queen Mother Chase, Champion Hurdle and Stayers Hurdle. But Festival Fever, The Irish At Cheltenham is about more than the winners, it is the whole atmosphere, the mix of ex-pat and visiting Irish among the thronging crowds, the craic; what goes on behind the scenes; many surprising stories are told. It is also about the fascinating history - racing was banned at Cheltenham for a period during the 19th century; and the 1980s saw a dearth of Irish runners which led to enterprising attempts by the racecourse to woo them back.

Sport and Health: Exploring the Current State of Play
It is a common assumption that sport is good for us and that participation in sport embodies public health benefits. With sport being increasingly used to deliver public health interventions worldwide, this book critically examines the rationale and evidence for sport as a public health policy tool. Featuring contributions from the UK, USA, Europe and Australia, it sheds new light on an emerging field of research which has significant implications for public health across the globe. Each chapter looks at the effectiveness of sport interventions across the lifespan for biological, psychological and social benefits, including those that utilise a settings-based approach to health promotion such as schools and professional sport clubs. Drawing on cutting-edge research which examines policy and practice at community and elite levels, this book addresses key topics such as education, engaging children and young adults, mental health, sport sponsorship and volunteering. Sport and Health: Exploring the Current State of Play is important reading for all students, scholars and policymakers with an interest in the sociology of sport, physical activity and public health.

The World's 100 Weirdest Sporting Events: From Gravy Wrestling in Lancashire to Wife Carrying in Finland
When we think of the world's great sporting events, we tend to focus on spectacles such as the World Cup, the Olympics, the Derby, the Monaco Grand Prix or the University Boat Race. Yet there is also an alternative world of competition where participants risk life, limb and often dignity for meagre rewards in truly weird sporting pursuits. Step forward the Indonesian sport of sepak bola api, a variation of football in which the barefoot players kick a ball that is on fire; Germany's Mud Olympics, at which competitors play soccer, volleyball and handball while knee-deep in mud; yak racing from Mongolia; Oregon's Pig-N-Ford Races where drivers speed around the track while carrying a live pig under one arm; and Australia's variation of the Boat Race, the Henley-on-Todd Regatta, where, instead of rowing, teams carry their boats along the dry bed of the River Todd.This book lists geographically the world's 100 weirdest sports events, giving full details of their rules and colourful history. They include the grotesque (the national sport of Afghanistan is buzkashi, in which riders on horseback aim to drag the headless carcass of a dead goat towards their opponents' goal), the dangerous (Japanese hardcore wrestlers batter each other with glass fluorescent light tubes instead of their bare hands), and the downright daft in the form of the World Black Pudding Throwing Championships, the World Flounder Tramping Championships, the World Gravy Wrestling Championships and the World Shin-Kicking Championships.Races are staged in all kinds of transportation. Canada is home to the Great Klondike Outhouse Race (for portable toilets), the Vancouver Bathtub Race, and the Windsor Pumpkin Regatta; Colorado hosts the annual Emma Crawford Coffin Races; and the pride of Yorkshire is the Great Knaresborough Bed Race, where teams push a bed (containing human occupant) along a 2.4-mile course that requires a wet crossing of the River Nidd. Animals feature heavily, too. As well as traditional races for ostriches (complete with jockeys), cockroaches (no jockey required), armadillos, sheep, and Oklahoma City's splendid Dachshund Dash, rubber-duck racing is one of the fastest growing sports of recent years with events being held in several countries. Other competitions test an animal's ability to do more than just run or float, such as elephant polo, dog surfing, camel wrestling, rabbit show jumping and pig diving. It is not beyond the realms of possibility that in the near future we may even be treated to synchronized pig diving.Although the plunging porkers might disagree, the appeal of many of these sports is enhanced by taking part. If cheese rolling or volcano boarding are too energetic for your taste, ice golf or underwater hockey too uncomfortable, and lingerie football wouldn't show off your legs to best effect, you could always enjoy more leisurely pursuits like the world championships in rock, paper, scissors or pooh sticks. If, on the other hand, you prefer a watching brief, you could try your hand at cow patty bingo, a North American contest where a field is divided into numbered squares, and contestants bet on which square the cow will take a poop. It is probably the only occasion in life when you can make money from one number two on top of another.

Bare-Knuckle Britons and Fighting Irish: Boxing, Race, Religion and Nationality in the 18th and 19th Centuries
Boxing was phenomenally popular in eighteenth and nineteenth-century Britain. Some of the leading men of the kingdom attended matches and patronized boxers and the most important fights attracted tens of thousands of spectators. Supporters of the sport claimed that it showcased a timeless and authentic idea of English manhood, a rock of stability in changing times. Yet, many of the best fighters of the era were Irish, Jewish, and black. This book shows how boxers, journalists, politicians, publicans, and others used national, ethnic, religious, and racial identities to promote boxing. Even as many of them championed the sport's pure English pedigree, Irish, Jewish, and black boxers claimed a prominent place for themselves. They used symbols, words, and deeds to cultivate a following in their own communities, who often gave their strong support in return. Far from the unblemished Englishness that some supporters imagined, then, boxing put the diversity of eighteenth and nineteenth century Britain on display.

Highs, Lows and Hypos: The Danny Sculthorpe Story
Car-crash tackles at lightning pace, brutal hits and extreme physical exertion in all weathers; rugby league is an unforgiving sport. It's a battle between player and opponent, whilst the demons inside your body are screaming at you that every sinew is in pain. Show weakness and the opposition has an edge over you. You've already lost and you've also let your teammates down. Don't, and just maybe you can experience the best the sport has to offer and the adulation of thousands of supporters. Danny Sculthorpe epitomised what being a tough, no-nonsense player was all about. Released by Leeds and Warrington before he'd even become a man, he revitalised his career at Rochdale. Then came the big money move to Wigan and the highs and lows of a cup final before he was unceremoniously dumped by a coach he thought had his back. Spells at Castleford, Wakefield and Huddersfield followed until he landed at one of the most storied clubs in the world - Bradford Bulls. But agony struck. After beating countless injuries - and type one diabetes - over a long career that saw him captain his country, a simple training ground accident cost him his livelihood and almost his life.Forced onto the scrapheap with many years ahead of him, depression followed alongside an addiction to medication and sleeping tablets. Worse was to follow as money troubles finally came home to roost, leaving one of the toughest players ever to play the game to contemplate suicide. Highs, Lows and Hypos is an incredible story of being a sportsman at the top of your game to someone who came acutely close to losing everything. It's how one man battled his black, emotional state to become an inspiration for all.
