    26 Marathons
    When four-time Olympian Meb Keflezighi ran his final marathon in New York City on November 5, 2017, it marked the end of an extraordinary distance-running career. Meb will be remembered as the only person in history to win both the Boston and New York City marathons as well as an Olympic marathon silver medal.

    Meb's last marathon was also his 26th, and each of those 26 marathons has come with its own unique challenges, rewards, and outcomes for him. Through focused narrative, Meb describes key moments and triumphs that made each marathon a unique learning experience and shows runners-whether recreational or professional-how to apply the lessons he's learned to their own running and lives.

    Chronologically organized by marathon, 26 Marathons offers wisdom Meb has gleaned about life, family, identity, and faith in addition to tips about running, training, and nutrition. Equal parts inspiration and practical advice, this book will provide readers an inside look at the life and success of one of the greatest runners living today.

  • Ballin in Black Our Tall Blacks Test Centurions
    Ballin in Black Our Tall Blacks Test Centurions
    When Tom Abercrombie was presented with his 100th cap ahead of the FIBA World Cup in 2019, he joined an exclusive club. He became the 11th player to reach a century of tests for the Tall Blacks. Standing at his side was Pero Cameron, the first man to achieve the feat. These players, and the nine between them, have shaped the game in the modern era, cementing New Zealand as a respected force across the basketball-playing world.
    Hailing from all over Aotearoa New Zealand and beyond, they've sacrificed blood, sweat and tears - not always their own - for the black jersey. Each of their journeys has taken a different path, yet they all intertwine in the fabric of New Zealand basketball.
    From hiding in the back of Mum's car, bleeding out on court, or living in a janitor's closet, to squaring up to Yao Ming, dunking on NBA superstars, and falling agonisingly short of the World Championship final, these are the stories of our Tall Blacks Test Centurions.

  • Belonging The Autobiography
    Belonging The Autobiography
    Alun Wyn Jones is the most capped rugby player of all time. Seen by many as one of the greatest ever Welsh players, he has won three Grand Slams for Wales and was named the best player of the 2019 Six Nations Championship.

    Born in Swansea, AWJ made his test debut for Wales in June 2006 against Argentina, and came to prominence in the 2007 campaign before Wales won the Grand Slam in 2008. And he has not looked back. In March 2009 against Italy he captained the Welsh side for the first time before being selected on the 2009 Lions Tour of South Africa. He was subsequently selected for the 2013 Lions Tour of Australia and the 2017 Lions Tour of New Zealand. On 31 October 2020, against Scotland, he became the most capped rugby player of all time, with 149 caps.

    Brilliant, honest and combative, his autobiography, written with Tom Fordyce, is the story of one of the most compelling and singular figures in rugby. Told with unflinching honesty, this is the ultimate book for all fans of the sport.

  • Boy Stirling Moss A Life in 60 Laps
    Boy Stirling Moss A Life in 60 Laps
    Even in the midst of a global pandemic, the death of Stirling Moss on 12 April 2020 at the age of 90 made headlines, almost 60 years after he retired from Formula One. In The Boy, Richard Williams assesses what made him such an iconic figure.

    Told in 60 brief chapters, Williams builds a fascinating and revealing portrait of a driver who was a hero to millions. As the long years of war began to recede, sport in Britain was getting moving again and there was a need for heroes. Denis Compton and Stanley Matthews were in their pomp, playing to packed houses. But Stirling Moss was a fresh face, just 17 years old when he first emerged in 1947. Too young to have served and been scarred by the war, he was soon revealed to possess not only an unearthly degree of skill but the qualities of courage and resolution noted in the generation that fought in the air and on land and sea. Their youth had been stolen; his was new and unspoiled.

    The Boy explains how and why he came to occupy such a unique place in the esteem and the affections of the nation. Why him, rather than some of his contemporaries, such as Mike Hawthorn and Peter Collins, who shared a role in the rise of Britain as a power in international motor racing? Moss may never have been world champion, but he created a remarkable and enduring legacy, and Williams brilliantly shows just how he did it.

Compelling, deeply researched and full of new insights, Bradman vs Bodyline takes us behind the scenes as Douglas Jardine planned his Leg Theory attack, designed to intimidate and potentially injure the world's greatest batsman and allow England to seize back the Ashes. From its genesis in English county cricket, to the key protagonists of Jardine, Harold Larwood and Bradman himself, Roland Perry has written a riveting account of a sporting outrage that came close to destroying the relationship between Australia and England.
