Product Description

How did Joe Sweeney…

…get Bob Costas to come to Milwaukee (in the middle of winter)?
…become the “wingman” to the archbishop of New York City?
…take Brett Favre’s off-the-field income from $65,000 to more than $4 million?

The answer is simple. Networking.

Master networker Joe Sweeney shares his networking secrets from a long and successful career as a business owner, sports agent and executive and investment banking consultant. His first secret: master networkers are focused on giving, not getting.

With today’s difficult economy and uncertain workplace, networking has never been more important. Sweeney’s simple but effective 5/10/15 networking plan will give you a leg up in the current job market, help you stay employed, or, if you’ve been laid off, find your next job. The cliché that who you know is more important than what you know has never been truer. Sweeney illustrates his insights with dozens of helpful examples from his own life (along with a few fascinating insider sports stories).

With special sections on networking for women and minorities, insights into the usefulness (and handicaps) of social networking sites, how to get (and why you need) a wingman and profiles of other master networkers, Networking Is a Contact Sport is a practical and essential guide for anyone who wants to get ahead in today’s economy.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's as much about this as the process itself...
I agree with the other positive reviews about this book...it is a fantastic resource for networking by one of the great experts!

One of the other reviewer hit the nail on the head though when she mentioned Dale Carnegie - as successful networking is as much about self-confidence and self-belief as it is about having a plan or process and working with it (the best guide to confidence in my opinion is the very underrated Instant Confidence: 92 Tips On How To Build Confidence To Develop Self-Confidence And Self-Esteem.

Use both these books in conjunction with each other and you truly will be unstoppable!

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant
What more can I say other than reiterate what many have already said. This has got to be one of the best motivational books of all time and has got to rank alongside the great classics such as Ron Holland's Talk and Grow Rich (Thorson's Business Series) and Dale Carnegie's Dale Carnegie's Lifetime Plan for Success (Hardcover - January 2008) It is so positive and inspirational. Whether you want to succeed in business or a carreer or just succeed in life itself this has got to be the one. From my business point of view it has helped me hugely and I can highly recommend it. Also worth a look from another aspect of determined sales approaches is Simon Ashley Richmond's WRITE AGAIN VOL 1 Bizarre and certainly thinking out of the box.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for your education...
This is a great book which deserves a place on the bookshelf next to "How to Win Friends and Influence People".As a female physician who struggles a bit in the social arena, I wish someone would have given me this information sooner, saving me some angst over the years.

The underlying message of the book is about making positive communication changes and emphasizing important life skills.These tenants are presented in a highly approachable and easy to understand manner.Knowledge gained in several of the book chapters including "Search for Significance", "Art of Networking" and "Working a Room" makes the investment of purchasing and reading this book a bargain.

Joe Sweeney's life anecdotes make for a very interesting and entertaining read. I literally could not put the book down. Here's hoping someday I will have a "wing-man or woman" like Joe!Highly Recommend!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Eternal Optimist
Have you ever thought what you might do if you lost your job today? If you haven't, I invite you to think about that for a second... Asking you to think about such a thing, goes against my belief, since I like to consider myself an eternal optimist. But I recently faced that exact situation in late July and was forced to figure what my next move would be.

Should I work as many angles as possible to "re-land" the job I was set take in early August? Should I go back to the place I just submitted a letter of resignation to and beg for my job back? Thanks to Joe Sweeney, I found out the answer was to NETWORK.

I put in my order for Networking Is A Contact Sport, following a recommendation from a close friend, without even knowing I would be jobless in an instant. The week my job feel through, I received my copy and began reading. Joe Sweeney's book was a life changer and renewed my confidence and optimism in life. While reading Networking Is A Contact I felt every word resonating in my life, both past and present, as well as what I hope for in the future. The chapter titled, "The Difference Between Networking and Not Working is Just One Letter" especially offered great insight considering what I was experiencing.

Within a week of reading Networking Is A Contact Sport and incorporating Joe's "5-10-15 Program" I already had three interviews scheduled for careers that interest me. I was proactive in my networking, all while keeping in mind Joe's approach of "giving, not getting." People thought I was crazy for not creating an account a career website and/or applying for any job under the sun.

Joe's book has become my Career Playbook that has allowed me to hone in on my abilities, talents, and restore confidence. Within a month of receiving Joe's book I found myself in a dream career situation and I look forward to growing in my current position.

The flame is burning bright for this eternal optimist thanks to Joe Sweeney's Networking Is A Contact Sport!

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST Read!!!
This past month, Joe introduced me to his new book, Networking Is A Contact Sport ([...]/).Let me tell you, I've read the first 6 chapters this past week and it's a must read!The underlying theme of the book is that you must approach networking as a way to give and not get.Networking is a Contact Sport includes an incredible story about how Joe, the former President of the Wisconsin Sports Authority, persistently recruited Bob Costas to the 1995 Wisconsin Sports Hall of Fame Dinner.Joe is also connected to Brett Farve, Bud Selig, Bob Uecker and many more successful people.With that said, he prides himself on treating everyone with the same respect and attention.Through chapter 6, the book includes tips about how to meet new people, how to remember names, how to land clients, how to relate to different personality types, and why you need wingmen / a board of directors.Chapter 3 introduces Joe's 5/10/15 program, which I began implementing this week.I am really looking forward to reading the second half of his book!

What's the best diet for good health and athletic performance? Nancy Clark, M.S., R.D., describes the dietary balance and specific foods shown to be optimal for athletes from recreational exercisers to Olympic hopefuls, citing supporting studies. Refreshingly free of high-protein hype, Clark emphasizes a varied, wholesome, moderate diet high in complex carbohydrates ("without question, wholesome carbohydrates are the best choices for fueling your muscles and promoting good health"), especially whole grains and starches; adequate but not excessive protein; and 20 to 35 percent fat. Learn the components and variables of your ideal diet, with tables of nutritional information and marvelous tidbits, such as calorie/fat counts of various fast foods. Did you realize that an Au Bon Pain pecan roll has 800 calories and 45 grams of fat--double the calories/fat in a serving of KFC's Crispy Strips? Did you know that a Dunkin' Donuts 16-ounce Coffee Coolatta with cream has 410 calories and 22 grams of fat--about equivalent to a McDonald's Quarter-Pounder?Clark, a well-known sports nutrition expert, also covers weight loss, weight gain, eating disorders, and includes 72 recipes. Highly recommended for athletes, exercisers, and average folk who want to understand how to design a personalized diet. --Joan Price ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars WOW!
This product was very good, and I am very satisfied! Great for athletes who are interested in learning more about the body and food and how they work together.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very Basic
Didn't like the book, very basic for someone who has no idea how to eat right. The book based on the "Pyramid", it gives general ideas about the right food but does not specify how the same food affects if eaten at different times. Also the metabolic types described very primitive and vague. I wish there would be more useful information instead of just short articles that jump from topic to topic.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome information!
This is a great book with loads of information...you read it and feel like you should know all this already but for some reason, you don't.This book is good if you are looking to lose weight, gain muscle, or just eat properly.You will greatly benefit if you are exercising and not seeing the results that you are expecting.As an extra, you get some recipes in the back of the book.I have this book with me in my car all the time so I can look up something really quick if I need to.Before this book, I read alot of books that basically catered to some supplement or some diet fad...this is the real deal.This book will not tell you not to eat sweets, it will tell you to have alot less of them...and increase your veggies and fruits and whole grains...stuff you should already know but stated in a concise, efficient way.If you are working out and feel you need the right dietary information, get this book.This book has got me looking into becoming a registered dietician, you know, those people you pay alot of money to tell you the same thing as this book!

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good book
I would recommend this book to other people interested in sports nutrition; it is scientifically written and explained

5-0 out of 5 stars Sound nutrition education
I was looking for a book that would teach me well grounded, scientific nutrition.The kind of book where I could learn what a nutritionist might learn in school.This book does just that.No fad stuff in here.She actually has a small section where she talks about the most common fad diets today, and points out their short comings(and even their strengths if they have any).I love how the book was organized to teach how to eat daily, before an event, during events, and after events.Some info on eating to lose weight, but this is not really a "diet" book, though I think even those looking to lose weight could benefit from this book.There is also info on how to gain weight if that is what you are looking for. ...

• Transform desire into will
• Channel emotions to victory

3-0 out of 5 stars nonfictionwith porssiblities
I play table tennis, competitively.I'm not very good (around 1300), but I like doubles, and I am pretty good at that.I was hoping for some tips mentally on how to improve my game.I wouldn't call it a total loss, but most of the stuff was common sense.Still, if you are looking for an edge in a sport, you might find afew small gems in this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the most important boks I've ever read.
After 4 years of college, a Masters Degree, and a Doctorate, it's fair to say I have done a great deal of reading in Academia and have not stopped reading voraciously in the 30 years since finishing my formal education. I do not exaggerate when I say that this book turned out to be one of the most important I have EVER
read. Among other things, it inspired me to try something I have wanted to do for many years but not had the courage to begin (actually writing a novel).It also had many pragmatic suggestions and insights for the serious athlete (my son is such a person). It really is a must read for any intelligent person.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best book ever
Big Fan of Dr. Lardon's book. Really changed my mind set and improved my golf game. Higly recommendable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for Athletes
As an athlete in a very competitive sport, the 10 strategies found in Finding Your Zone really helped me better manage the pressure that comes with competing. It showed me multiple ways to deal with my anxiety on competition day, which allowed me to perform at my best. Also the book gave me several strategies on how to prepare for competitions. Athletes in any sport will be able to apply Dr. Lardon's techniques to their pre-competition and competition experiences.

5-0 out of 5 stars I wish I had this book when I first started playing golf 20 years ago
Dr. Lardon's message was the set of instructions I have been in search of to put together my golf game and dramatically improve my performance on the course.Since I first started playing, I have tried to every technique and tip to improve my game but usually with only temporary or inconsistent success.Success in golf is far more about the inner game than it is about technique. I was caring more about all the wrong things.Read this book and then enjoy calm, confident success in golf...and life. ... Read more

Product Description
Every morning more than three million listeners tune in to Mike and Mike in the Morning on ESPN Radio—mostly to hear the Mikes’ (Golic and Greenberg) riotous back-and-forth on everything from why baseball managers should dress like real people to how to lose a fight with the wife with dignity. In Mike and Mike’s Rules for Sports and Life, the beloved mic jockeys put their unique stamp on, well, the rules for sports and life. In years on the road, in the studio, and at home, Greeny and Golic have learned that it’s all about the big stuff: separating order from chaos, ensuring our survival as a species, and keeping peace. For instance:
• The Fourth of July should be eliminated and replaced with an Independence Day that falls on the first Thursday of the month, creating a four-day weekend like Thanksgiving, which, by the way, could do without the Detroit Lions.
• “The Human Element” in sports officiating and weather forecasting sucks.
• The top pick in the NBA draft lottery should go to the team that came closest to making the playoffs—not to the team that rips off fans by mailing it in after the All-Star break. 
• When someone says, “I’m being completely honest,” they might as well be claiming that they go to Hooters just for the wings.
• Kids do not get to eat french fries for breakfast. Ever. And who cares what the kids at the next table are ordering.
• No more designated hitter!
If you’re one of Golic and Greeny’s legions of followers, you probably can’t get enough of this sort of provocative, hilarious, and occasionally obsessive stuff. And if you’re one of those fans who live by the rule “There oughta be a rule,” then Mike and Mike’s Rules for Sports and Life is the book for you.

THANKS TO A "ghost writer" who has captured 'the spirit' of this morning must watch T-V program on ESPN-"The DUECE"- I STILL LOOK FORWARD TO A "book signing" near me.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Impressed At All
First, let me tell you that I love Mike & Mike and eagerly awaited the publication of their book.I even preordered it from Amazon.I'm sorry I did.

The format is confusing and difficult to read.It is more of a compilation of their conversations and rehashes old material.Nothing is new or exciting.I haven't even been able to read the whole book because it is so difficult to tolerate the haphazard format.The material is not interesting.

Save your money and borrow it from someone (like me) who foolishly bought it sight unseen.Save your time and just watch or listen to Mike & Mike.

2-0 out of 5 stars Fan of show but
I like their show and listen regularly.This book though is a disappointment.If I'd paid for it, I'd be furious but it was free at the library.Essentially it's a collection of transcripts from their show gathered ostensibly around "rules for life and sports".Thematically, the effort doesn't hold water as the rules are basically glossed over and only marginally relate to the discussion being transcribed.Also, what's charming and entertaining as a radio conversation just comes across as flat and pointless in book form.

Product Description

The fastest-growing sector of today’s sports audience is the alienated fan. Complaints abound: from inflated ticket prices, $6 hot dogs, and $9 beers to owners endlessly demanding new multimillion-dollar stadiums funded by public tax dollars. Those sitting in the owners’ boxes are increasingly placing profit over players’ performances and fan loyalty. Bad Sports cuts through the hype and bombast to zero in on tales of abusive, dictatorial owners who move their teams thousands of miles away from their fan base, use their stadiums as religious and political platforms, or hold communities ransom for millions of dollars of taxpayer money to fund their gargantuan stadiums.

As the multibillion-dollar sports-industrial complex continues to lumber along, Dave Zirin is the voice in the wilderness, speaking out for the common fan with a tough, passionate, and intelligent voice that will remind readers that there is more to sportswriting than glowing athlete profiles.  ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Arguments not well supported
While I'm generally sympathetic to Zirin's arguments, the book's analysis is pretty shallow.

He effectivley catalogues what selfish jerks many team owners are, but he really does not make any serious effort to examine the economic issues surrounding stadium finance (he relies on others to simply state -- as uncontrovertible fact -- that new stadiums provide no economic benefit).

He also fails to address the fact that plenty of stadium referenda have been approved by the voters, which undermines his argument that owners "force" the stadiums on the people.

He also relies far too much on single random fans (or blog posters) to support his argument that "the people" hate the owners and don't want the new stadiums. The stadiums are far from empty so obviously some people still feel that the ticket prices are fair enough (though Zirin doens't bother to cite actual attendance figures for most of the teams he pillories.)

Finally, he does not make any serious effort to explore the specifics of his proposal that teams be community-owned. The chapter on Green Bay is about 8 pages long and really does not get very detailed. Nor does he have any suggestions as to how other communities could replicate the Green Bay situation.

4-0 out of 5 stars For love of the numbers
If the saying "Do what you love and the money will follow" is true, the rest of the saying must be, "but not if making money is what you love."As journalist Dave Zirin's BAD SPORTS: HOW OWNERS ARE RUINING THE GAMES WE LOVEreports, today too many sports team owners concern themselves only with numbers - and by that I don't mean how many points or runs the team scored - instead of the good of the game, players, and fans.Ask certain football franchise owners to identify the tight end and they might point to the team's hottest cheerleader.However, they know their earnings, the club being just a means to an amount.BAD SPORTS is no less than a two-minute warning, because the profits from overpriced tickets, parking, and refreshments ("$6 hot dogs and$9 beers," the book notes) are adding up to the loss of fans who no longer can or will pay.

Baseball is the only major sport I follow and, living near New York City, I would like to attend a game now and then.But three years ago I left it at "then" after security guards searched fans entering Shea Stadium for a Mets game.I wondered, "Am I a guest of the New York Mets or a criminal suspect?If they are worried about someone having a gun or bomb in a crowd, then won't everyone walking into a shopping mall have to be searched, by the same logic?And what are the qualifications of the people who pat down the fans?Are they police officers?Would they know what to do if they came across someone with a weapon?Wouldn't it be riskier to have an untrained person searching someone who unwittingly has a gun on him?It could lead to a tragic confrontation, couldn't it?"

Until I hear the Mets no longer reward paying customers with such indignity, I will not attend another game.I should also refuse to buy a ticket until the Mets pay back New York taxpayers who involuntarily helped pay for the team's new ballpark, Citi Field - named after another corporate welfare queen, Citigroup, as if they wanted to make sure you felt insulted.If it seems as though BAD SPORTS has a lot to say about public financing of the private business of sports it's because every owner, seeing taxpayer money bankrolling team arenas and stadiums, wines and dines elected officials to do the same for his club.

And BAD SPORTS does a good job reminding us that team owners get little public scrutiny compared to players - even some fans would not know the name of the men who own their teams.Should you disagree that money isn't everything, BAD SPORTS may convince you having it sure doesn't mean you know what to do with a sports franchise.But then, when you realize George W. Bush once owned baseball's Texas Rangers, you know anyone can own a team.Anyway, if public stadium financing, high ticket prices and fan searches have not already caused you to put your pennant in storage, the behind-the-scenes tales of the low-life characters who own the teams will.


5-0 out of 5 stars Call to action!
Dave Zirin does it again! In arguably his best book to date, Zirin completely eviscerates professional sports owners, their agendas, their sycophantic political hacks, and how all of their dictatorial policies have helped destroy sports and the very social fabric of our society.

While reading the book I continually felt that finally a professional sports writer has taken the bold step of giving voice to everyone who has ever watched in anger and disgust his or her community being held hostage by the political, social and economic programs of money hungry owners. We have seen our teams we have grown to love ripped from our communities.We have watched our schools crumble as new publicly funded stadiums line the pockets of owners who in turn so often put mediocre, but revenue generating teams, on the field.We have funded the right wing religious political extremism of this hand full of Neanderthal scum. And, among other things, we have been priced out of going and watching the publically funded teams we have loved and supported over the years.

But you need to know that Bad Sports is much more than catharsis, it is a cry to action for every citizen who is sick and tired of seeing hard earned tax monies that could be going elsewhere into the pockets of millionaires and billionaires. Lets stand up for our communities, hold the dictators of sports accountable, and take back the games we so love.

3-0 out of 5 stars Half the story
Interesting book.While I like the evaluations, and it's fun to learn more about the owners, I see the other side of some of the story.If people want teams to be the property of fans and the players, then we need to be more like Green Bay.As taxpayers, we need to be willing to come up with the money so that our city can buy the team and run the organization.If a particular player wants a higher salary, then we can have a referendum on whether he should get a raise.If we don't like the facilities, we pay for the new ones out of the profits the city makes from the team, supplemented by taxes if need be. It seems as if fans want it both ways.They want someone else to buy the team and take all the financial risk, build the arenas and stadiums, but not charge too much for tickets and never ask for help from the city or the taxpayers.So, fun book, weak concept of the necessary relationship between fans, teams and owners.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for any one interested in sports and/or politics
A very enjoyable and informative read. Dave Zirin is the nation's best writer on the intersection of sports and politics. Sports fans will appreciate the shots Zirin takes at particular owners and the histories of their stadium swindles. Political wonks will appreciate Zirin's astute analyses of how rich owners use sports to basically fleece the poor. This book should serve as a seminal text for anyone hoping to change the way sports work in America -- in other words, for anyone who wants sports to be fun again. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, Makes a great gift!
This book is accessible to both pre-teens without being patronizing at all. Its really a reference that can be enjoyed many times between parents and their children. Any child into sports will certainly enjoy this book, and it is also worth checking out "The 25 Greatest Baseball Players of All Time" by Len Berman which was also released recently and is very similar in style.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Read
Wow!I love the way this book is written.It's not pretentious and while sport fans will flock to it, this is great for sport historians, people wanting to get into sports and of course...kids!

The pictures chosen were perfect, the stories were just told as stories, and not in an elitist "you should know this to call yourself a sport fan" way.While there were a lot of stats given, for sports newbies, they were presented in an easy to understand manner.For those that like to collect stats, all the info is neatly presented.

My son loved/s this book.It's fun, colorful, and full of imagery.Most importantly, this book isn't written for boys.It's written for kids (although to be honest, I enjoyed it just as much).There are so many sports covered in the book, that your child is sure to find one that he will become obsessed with and make you read to them over and over.

The CD that is included with this book is also great.After you read the stories, you can pop in the CD and listen to the first hand accounts of what you just read.That alone is worth it.Having a sports themed party?This is the perfect goody-bag book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!
Exellent book and CD.Although it is supposed to be for teenagers, it was just as good for adults as well!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Gift Idea
I bought this for my son and he loves it.At 8 years old he has other interests besides sports right now but he wants to get into the same stuff as dad.This was a great way for us to talk sports together!

5-0 out of 5 stars This amazing book will WOW sports fans of all ages ... this book is a bargain you won't regret picking up!
Everyone interested in even cracking the covers of this book at least one or two favorite sports.Perhaps you are a sports fanatic like Len Berman and love sports of all kinds.In that case you're not going to have any problem relating to each and every one of the stories in this book.The eleven track CD will "make it even more enjoyable," and "listening to sports history being made is really cool," according to Berman.Greatest sports moments can be debatable, but each one in this book just happens to be a favorite of the author.I must admit, he's picked some great ones!

* The Immaculate Reception ~ The Pittsburgh Steelers weren't the luckiest team in the NFL by far.Oakland should have beaten them in that playoff game, but how the heck did Franco Harris ever get hold of that ball?

* The Miracle On Ice ~ Paid athletes weren't allowed in the Olympics so in 1980 United States hockey players were going up against the Soviets who "had some grizzled veterans of international hockey."Would they even have a remote chance of winning?

This amazing book will WOW sports fans of all ages. My favorite, hands down, was the absolutely crazy story, entitled "The Stanford Band Play."Just a hint. . .did you know there is a trombone in the College Football Hall of Fame?There is.There are numerous photographs and informative sidebar materials scattered throughout the book.The CD is an amazing compliment to this book.Berman narrates historical information about several particularly exciting sports moments and then you can hear the actual sports broadcasts.When both the broadcaster and the audience went wild with excitement when Hank Aaron hit home run number 715, I could actually feel the hair rise on my arms.This book is a bargain you won't regret picking up! ...

Product Description
Until recently, the effortless "Zone" of peak performance was only within the reach of serious athletes. Now, with Body, Mind, and Sport, anyone can reach the Zone, regardless of fitness level.

Designed to accommodate a variety of individual fitness needs, the Body, Mind, and Sport program is split into two levels. Level 1 is for non-athletes who want to improve overall fitness; Level 2 is for those who want to train for competitive or recreational purposes. Your own unique mind-body type is taken into account to guide you in achieving your personal best without stress or strain. In this revised and updated edition of Body, Mind, and Sport, fitness expert and trainer John Douillard outlines a program in which your individual seasonal constitution-Winter, Spring, or Summer-determines what exercises or sports are best suited to your mind-body type and what foods you should eat for optimum results.

Using the Body, Mind, and Sport approach you can decrease heart and breath rates while improving both fitness and performance. Dozens of world-class athletes, including Martina Navratilova and Billie Jean King, have used John Douillard's expert breathing techniques, dietary recommendations, and seasonally balanced workouts. Now you can, too! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A lot of mumbo jumbo
This book offers so much hope and inspiration - I really want to like it - I really do.Three stars for the idea of nasal breathing, which I'm still hoping (why?!) will work out for me.

Most of this book is in the form of bold and scientifically unsupported (at least, unreferenced) assertions about what you "should" do and the resulting amazing benefits.The problem is, in the few cases that I was able to double check the facts, the book is wrong every time.

On p223, for instance, it says that hyperventilation:"... inhibits the effective removal of CO2 from the lungs.The result is toxic."The problem with this explanation is that in reality hyperventilation results in lightheadedness because of too LOW levels of CO2, not too high.The book has it exactly backwards.And this is a pretty important support to the entire nasal breathing argument.(Source:my physician, and Wikipedia.)

And that's just one example of about half a dozen where I could verify that the book gets it wrong.(Another:using [220 - age] for an HR baseline.)So it's unfortunately difficult to believe the other 95% of the book where we don't already have the answers and are expected to take the teachings on faith.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for improving fitness level, but...
John Doullard's Body, Mind, and Sport is excellent for exposure to basic yoga, breathing techniques, and overall well-being. In it, he persuasively and clearly describes the benefits of nasal breathing by comparing performance levels during "conventional" and "body, mind, sport" training methods followed by an explanation of how to apply the techniques.

His methods allow you to ascertain your body type, learn the best times to train, relearn how to train, and most importantly to enjoy it. Personally, I don't feel right breathing through my mouth anymore and I've seen my recreational cycling levels improve drastically by following John's prescribed method.

However, for all the benefits, it is relatively difficult to apply the techniques. That may be because someone isn't actively showing you what to do, rather you are reading a description and trying to imitate it. It is especially hard to gauge your comfort level (he often says "Let comfort be your guide") when it comes to sports that require rapid bursts of energy like tennis or basketball.

To conclude:
- The techniques are effective and (coming from a family with background in yoga) and described very well for someone who is unfamiliar with yoga. A must read for anyone with personal wellness in mind!

- When it comes to applying the material, don't give up! At first it will be very difficult to understand what you are supposed to do or feel like.

- Attending a yoga class may help you with the breathing techniques. If that doesn't appeal to you, keep trying on a treadmill or exercise bike where it is easy to push yourself, but back off if you body isn't ready.

Good luck!

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting Philosophy, Application Difficult
This book is mixed for me. There's some interesting thinking on the role of fitness in our lives. The author is persuasive and draws on many sources to conclude that exercise should be pleasant and aligned with body type.

However, the core of his teaching is slow nasal breathing during exercise using a breathing technique from yoga - ujjayi breath. He advises building up from a very slow warm up and gradually stretching your capacity. Essentially he never wants you to exercise higher than 50% of your heart rate reserve. He quotes Kenneth Cooper to show that this low level of exertion is enough, but it's not cited and I have been unable to find anything to back it up.

This is a very low level of exercise according to most experts. I've found in the several months I've tried it out, that nasal breathing is too constricting to do during real conditioning exercise. If you exercise at a rate where experts consider you're getting some benefit- anything over 50-60% of your heart rate reserve - it's very distracting to nose breathe. There are many parts of the book that are appealing, but the application doesn't seem to be there.

5-0 out of 5 stars Use Your Mind While Working Your Body
This book will help you realize the importance of being smart when exercising your body.We all have pushed ourselves one time or another, this book gives you direction on how to exercise effectively.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great book about how to exercise your whole being
This book has had a profound influence on my athletic and spiritual development. Like many people, I never fit comfortably in the world of competitive athletics (though I had some success with it, competing at the state championship level in high school and in Division I athletics in college). I was drawn to athletic competition, but I did not have a feel for the deeper purpose behind all the effort that must go into training.

This book is really about how to experience a sense of balance and harmony in life, and how athletic activities can be a pathway to that experience. The author's wonderful experience of being in the Zone is inspiring, and in many ways is parallel to Csikszentmihalyi's concept of flow (see "Finding Flow").

Another strength of this book is that the author provides you with a comprehensive method and plan for achieving the state he describes in your sport. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely informative
Anyone interested in conditioning should take a look at this book.It is filled with great examples and information you can use to improve your current conditioning regimen, create a new one, or take it to the next level.Rather than just advocate one type of training, there are examples of lots of different exercises--weights, bar bells, dumb bells, kettle bells, and some that defy description.Definitely a book you will be rereading as long as you train.

5-0 out of 5 stars Book binding is falling apart
I have actually checked "YES" for the review comments of Christopher Lim (Substance without flash) which in my opinion is the best comment that describes Ienatsch's book. After reading this book and applying what I have learnt from it to real life, I have realized that I was doing somethings in a wrong way that I thought I understood correctly from Code's book (okay, english is not my native language but my english is not bad). Code's book widened my horizon and gave a lot of valueable information. Ienatsch's book filed in the gaps and made it clearer.

I have only one disappointment about the book but it is not content related. It is about the book itself. I am very careful about my books, I never fold back the pages that I already read to hold the book in one hand, or never try to open them fully or flatten the midsection or so. But this book has just fallen apart after the first reading. Now there is nothing that holds the first 30-35 pages, they are simply separated from the book. I guess the binding quality is not very high. Handle carefully!

5-0 out of 5 stars Sport Ridning Techniques
Good book for everyone who rides a bike. There are no secret, earth shattering revelations, (maybe none exist) but it does contain "all" the tips and skills for advanced riding and should be a part of everyones library. I highly recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant read
I was a big fan of the magazine "Sport Rider" while Nick was editor there. I think he has continued an excellent approach/attitude to motorcycling in writing this book. I believe it caters for the full gamut of riders, very experienced to novice. I would rate it right up there with the "Twist of the Wrist" books, it may be of even more value to some people. He manages to get across the information ineasy to understand explanations & excellent colour pictures. If you were just to buy one book about motorcycle riding technique then this should be the one.

Nick Ienatsch makes it easy for anyone to read Sport Riding Techniques.The riding techniques and side stories he discribes are easy to Imagine,and even easer to practice due to the bounty of crystal clear photos available in this book(manual).

3-0 out of 5 stars Good, not great.
I can appreciate Nick's lifelong experience, but as an self-described intermediate rider looking to go that extra step, I found this book MILDLY disappointing.Mostly just common sense.There were a few solid tips and guidelines but nothing revolutionary.Maybe my expectations were a bit misguided."Get as much seat time as possible." "Work on gently using the brakes and throttle."It just seemed geared more toward a rank beginner. Discussions on traction and lean angle were informative but not enlightening.For less than 20 bucks, it's a worthwhile read.That same amount of time spent riding and improving would be just as helpful.

Product Description
Sports betting can be attacked intelligently. Smart sports bettors do not gamble the same way as tourists play roulette or retirees play the slot machines. Instead, smart sports bettors are making bets that they have thought through carefully with supporting logic and/or research. The purpose of this book is to give you tools to succeed at sports betting, to show you how to evaluate, compare and view sports betting from an analytical perspective, not from a gambling perspective.

This book by King Yao, author of the widely-acclaimed Weighing the Odds in Hold 'em Poker, should be used as a guideline to sports betting rather than a blueprint. The sports betting market changes and adapts quickly. The underlying principles shown in this book should help you adapt and continue to make good bets even when the market changes.

This book is for you if you want to think analytically about sports betting. It is for you if you do not want to be spoon-fed supposed winners, but want to get some ideas to improve your game. You battle bookmakers and line makers constantly; betting sports is a game of maneuvers and adjustments. You can use as many weapons as possible in this continuous fight. This book should help in that regard. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money
Don't buy this book!It really doesn't offer anything that is useful.Everything is from a 30,000 foot view that doesn't give detail on things that will help you.It talks about only betting when there is positive Expected Value (EV).Really!Gee, and this whole time I thought I should bet on things that were expected to lose money over time.But it never helps you decide how discern between the two.The whole book is filled with things like this.Now I was only interested in football so I didn't read the other sections but I don't hold out much hope for those sections.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well organized and easy to understand
I always was intrigued about the lines and odds in sport betting, This book explains everything. The only little negative is that it does not cover soccer just American sports

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for the beginning bettor.
If you are new to sports betting I strongly recommend buying this book and Stanford Wong's Sharp Sports Betting. These are the two quintessential books for the beginning bettor. Reading the two books will take you from a total newb to an advanced beginner in the shortest time possible and will make you +EV in sports betting to a certain degree.

The information in this book is only insightful to those who have no idea how sports betting works. If you have done any serious betting yourself you will already know 95% of everything written.

Product Description
The leading textbook for undergraduate exercise physiology courses, Physiology of Sport and Exercise, is back in an updated fourth edition that is better than ever after extensive external reviews of the previous edition by nine content experts. Renowned authors Jack Wilmore and David Costill add the expertise of W. Larry Kenney to bring a fresh perspective to the organization and content of the fourth edition.

Building on the positive feedback of previous editions, Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Fourth Edition, presents the complex relationship between human physiology and exercise in a format that is more comprehensive for students than other comparable texts. Ease of reading and understanding is the cornerstone for this popular text, and students will experience a depth and breadth of content balanced with unique and effective learning features:

  • Online learning. The text is automatically packaged with an access code for the online student guide. With the inclusion of the access code in the text, students will be reminded to access the Web site more readily. The convenient Web site format of the student guide allows students to practice, review, and develop knowledge and skills about the physiology of sport and exercise.
  • Accessible layout. The book is divided into seven parts, each with opening text that briefly describes the contents of the chapters in that part. Chapter outlines with page numbers help students locate material, including the related online study guide activities.
  • Keys to comprehension. In each chapter, key points and key terms are highlighted. The key terms are listed at the end of the chapter and defined in the glossary, thus increasing students' opportunities for recall, transfer of information, and self-testing.
  • Review and reflection. Review boxes scattered throughout each chapter remind students of the major points presented. Study questions allow students to test their knowledge of the chapter's contents. Reminders of available study guide activities encourage students to explore additional learning opportunities.
  • Reference and extended study. A comprehensive glossary and a thorough index help students navigate both the text and subject matter. Plus, a listing of references and selected readings provide additional information about topics of special interest.
  • Abbreviations and conversions. A list of common abbreviations on the inside front cover and a list of conversions on the inside back cover of the text provide a quick and easy reference for students while they complete labs and assignments.
In an effort to reduce "backpack bulge," the fourth edition has been carefully streamlined to offset the addition of new chapters or pages. Updated research, modernized artwork, and a reorganization of material provide a focused and effective presentation of concepts within a slightly smaller--and lighter--textbook. Chapters regarding nutrition and body composition are now combined to reduce information overlap, and references and selected readings from each chapter are grouped at the end of the text.

The authors, all distinguished researchers and past presidents of the American College of Sports Medicine, combine their expertise to deliver a level of technical content superior to that in previous editions with the inclusion of new and updated topics:

  • New information regarding exercise training principles and the adaptations in muscle, hormonal control, neural control, metabolism, and cardiorespiratory function with both resistance training and aerobic and anaerobic training
  • A more in-depth presentation of the body's adaptations in hot and cold environments and at altitude
  • Updated content on how general principles of exercise and sport physiology are specifically applied to children and adolescents, older individuals, and women
  • The latest research in exercise prescription for health and fitness, including the unique role of physical activity for rehabilitation and the prevention and control of cardiovascular disease, obesity, and diabetes
To facilitate a more integrated learning experience, both students and instructors can take advantage of the online ancillaries included in the fourth edition of Physiology of Sport and Exercise. The free online student study guide offers an improved interface and new learning activities that complement each chapter in the book. Additionally, helpful study guide reminders and the inclusion of an access code within the book prompt students to access the online guide to practice, review, and develop their understanding of chapter concepts.

Students can also use the guide's dynamic and interactive learning activities to conduct experiments outside the lab. Key concepts are reinforced as students conduct self-made experiments and record their own physiological responses to exercise. In addition, the study guide offers access links to scientific and professional journals as well as organization and career information.

Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Fourth Edition, stands alone as the best, most comprehensive resource framing the latest research findings in a reader-friendly format. This winning combination makes it easier--and more engaging--than ever for students to develop their understanding of the body's marvelous abilities to perform various types and intensities of exercise and sport, to adapt to stressful situations, and to improve its physiological capacities.

Includes an online student study guide!

Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Fourth Edition, includes an online study guide with dynamic and interactive learning activities, all of which can be conducted outside the lab. The site offers self-rating checklists that allow students to target concepts they need extra help with and unique "My Notes" study aids that are customizable and can be saved to a student's computer. Activity feedback presents specific text page references to review for incorrect responses. Additional resources in the online study guide include glossary terms that are emphasized on their first appearance and include a pop-up definition, quizzes that test students' knowledge of the material, and links to professional journals as well as organization and career information to extend students' knowledge beyond the school environment. ...

I have been buying my books from Amazon.com for a few years now.I am a graduate student and money is tight, so I have been able to trust that Amazon.com will always have cheap new & used books.

5-0 out of 5 stars A fine college textbook
I had a good time reading this very fine textbook on exercise physiology from cover to cover. It was at the level of detail and academic rigor that I was seeking. I understand that this is an introductory text used at the Kinesiology Department of the University of Minnesota. I am not an athlete, but rather an ordinary layperson just wanting to exercise to get fit. While the research cited in the text focuses more on athletes, there was plenty of information for non-athletes.
The book presents a great deal of technical information, but it uses a lot of modern visual techniques to help that information go down easy. The book is full of charts, graphs, diagrams, and pictures which are great help to a visually oriented person such as myself. I found other visual elements very attractive, such as layout, text boxes ("in focus" and "in review" summaries), appropriate typefaces, and so forth.
The authors go to some effort to make the material interesting and manage to convey their excitement about their topics to the reader. I highly recommend this book, whether you are a student or an educated layperson wanting to become even more educated on the most important subject of exercise physiology. ... Read more

Endurance athletes regularly push their bodies to the limits with a strenuous training regimen that demands smart nutrition. In Sports Nutrition for Endurance Athletes, Ryan offers proven strategies for improved athletic performance with sport-specific guidelines for running, cycling, triathlon, swimming, adventure racing, and rowing. In-depth information is presented in an easy-to-read and accessible style, with individual chapters dedicated to each of these popular endurance sports.

The science of nutrition can be daunting for athletes, but Ryan converts it to practical advice for smarter eating. Athletes will learn how to assess body composition and find healthy ways to lose body fat and build muscle. Ryan gives a comprehensive explanation of the nutritional role of carbohydrates, protein, and fat in an athlete's diet and explains the importance of meal timing for better performance and recovery. Ryan also explains the concepts of nutritional periodization so athletes can properly adjust their mix of foods throughout the training cycle. The book includes a review of popular ergogenic aids, tips on meal planning, typical shopping lists, sample menus, glycemic index tables, facts about vitamins and minerals, and a comparison of sports nutrition products. Within each sport-specific chapter are tips to adjust nutritional intake for races of different lengths.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cut through the media ads and hype...GET THIS BOOK!!
Stop wasting time reading ads about the next new product to help you shave time off your run/bike/swim/etc.Get this book.Be sure to read, then re-read, Part I & II.Really understand these parts, then jump to the chapters about formulating a training and racing diet.Then go back and re-read Part I & II again.Without a thorough understanding of the science behind REAL nutrition (not magazine ads), it's too easy to slip back into bad habits.Anyone serious about improving training effectiveness and race-day performance should have this in his/her library.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad
Overall, a fairly useful book that a novice in the area like myself was able to learn from.

5-0 out of 5 stars great and on time!
it was in great conditions and was quickly delivered. all I expect when buying a book. thanks!

2-0 out of 5 stars Good if you speak the author's language
I'm a distance a runner and I care about my nutrition, but what I don't care about is the inner science behind it.What I wanted was a reference guide to tell me what foods I should eat with maybe a BRIEF explanation why I should care to eat it.I don't want chapters and chapters of food sciences!Just tell me, eat X, Y, and Z, which will help you with A, B, and C with regards to distance running or any endurance sport.I don't want to know about lipids, amino acids, blah blah blah.If I was a food science expert, it would make sense to me but since I'm not, I feel like I'm reading through my college textbook.

I did enjoy the tables in most of the chapters where certain foods were listed in order of how much of a particular ingredient they had (e.g. Omega-3, protein, carbs, etc).If the entire book was just a bunch of those tables along with one or two paragraphs of why those are good for you, I would've enjoyed reading this book much more.Instead, I had to put it down after about 1/3 of the way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Training & Nutrition Bible
As a relative newcomer to endurance racing this has become my de-facto reference text. I've read the book cover to cover and highly recommend that you do so as well. Unlike the hundreds of training or nutrition fad books out there, Monique Ryan focuses on the fundamentals of nutrition, hydration, and the physiology of your body. For the first time, I can finally connect the dots between the nutrition discoveries I've made along the way while experimenting with my own diet, and even more importantly, I now understand why they worked. Likewise for hydration, supplements and recovery.

A must read if you are serious about any endurance sport, and best of all, it is a very well written book that you can read from start to finish without any prior knowledge on the subject. Highly recommended. ... Read more

16. The Silent Season of a Hero: The Sports Writing of Gay Talese

Product Description

One of America's most acclaimed writers and journalists, Gay Talese has been fascinated by sports throughout his life. At age fifteen he became a sports reporter for his Ocean City High School newspaper; four years later, as sports editor of the University of Alabama's Crimson-White, he began to employ devices more common in fiction, such as establishing a "scene" with minute details—a technique that would later make him famous.

Later, as a sports reporter for the New York Times, Talese was drawn to individuals at poignant and vulnerable moments rather than to the spectacle of sports. Boxing held special appeal, and his Esquire pieces on Joe Louis and Floyd Patterson in decline won praise, as would his later essay "Ali in Havana," chronicling Muhammad Ali's visit to Fidel Castro. His profile of Joe DiMaggio, "The Silent Season of a Hero," perfectly captured the great player in his remote retirement, and displayed Talese's journalistic brilliance, for it grew out of his on-the-ground observation of the Yankee Clipper rather than from any interview. More recently, Talese traveled to China to track down and chronicle the female soccer player who missed a penalty kick that would have won China the World Cup.

Chronicling Talese's writing over more than six decades, from high school and college columns to his signature adult journalism— and including several never-before-published pieces (such as one on sports anthropology), a new introduction by the author, and notes on the background of each piece—The Silent Season of a Hero is a unique and indispensable collection for sports fans and those who enjoy the heights of journalism.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Overview of a Great Journalist
Gay Talese is pretty much the founder of what later came to be known as New Journalism (Tom Wolfe, Joan Didion, Hunter S. Thompson, etc.). He doesn't like that term, but it accurately describes his use of fiction narrative techniques to write non-fiction. This book is a collection of his sports articles and essays, ranging from the 1940s to the 2000s. Since it starts with articles written in his teens, it's a bit uneven in quality, but it gives you a good sense of how he developed his style. The magazine essays at the end are the best, particularly the title essay on Joe DiMaggio. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Horribly organized and written but quite informational
Perhaps I'm not being fair on discussing how this book is being organized since so many of the ideas overlap so heavily... Nonetheless, this book seems to have almost no logical organization. Sometimes, when I'm reading a chapter, I'll feel like I'm reading something straight out of the last chapter. Not to mention the hierarchy within a chapter is chaotic at best. The use of the same size, same bold font for every heading makes it feel more like a poorly made wikipedia page on the topic than a logical chapter presenting the information. For god's sakes, change the font to reflect the hierarchy of the chapter. I've never seen a textbook fail to do so so miserably.

On top of this, it often feels like the authors just "threw" as much information in on a given topic as they could. Reading the little bullet points every few pages seems to almost conflict with some of the things mentioned in the book.

All in all, this is a VERY frustrating book to read and if you aren't somewhat interested in the topic already, it will not be an easy read. I have never used a worse textbook in my studies and I am in my second year of university, having taken psychology and exercise physiology courses with a lot in common with the course I use this for now.

If there's a way to avoid using this book (note to professors), please spare your class. You might understand it fairly well but students with less knowledge in the field will find it ridiculously boring and overwhelming.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book for Endurance Athletes
As a newer long-distance triathlete, I found the information in the book to be very useful.It is well written and provides a reasonable approach to tackling nutritional challenges I face.

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to know and more
Being an endurance athlete, nutrition is as important as training itself. That is why, every athlete has the responsability to take charge of their own health and safety, meaning every athlete must know enough about nutrition to understand your body. You can have help from specialists, but the responsability is always yours in the end.
When I bought this book, I also bought two other books on Endurance Sports Nutrition. Although the other books where good, this one excells!
This is one of those books that are, in one word, COMPLETE. Like the "The Lore of Running" is the definitive book for running, this is the definitive book for endurance nutrition. I figure the author decided she didn't want to write more books on the subject, so this one has everything. There is knowledge for Ultramarathons, Multiday events and even for dealing with altitude.
After reading it, I feel like my previous experience in sport was like a blind chase.
Excelent. Bravo.

4-0 out of 5 stars Eat up.
Stacks of logical informative. A fair bit of science. You won't find many meal recipes, but all the information you need to plan you food and fluid intake.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference for Athletes
I found this book to be well written and factual.I like the care Eberle has taken to cover the pros and cons, risks and rewards, of various common methods and dietary recommendations. In the section on dietary supplements Eberle says "When it comes to deciphering health claims, a healthy dose of skepticism and a bit of common sense can help steer you through the maze." that sort of good judgment is typical here. I think a lot of crap (correction, I should say pseudoscience) has been written on the subject of sports nutrition.Eberle helps you sort out what is based on the evidence and what is not.I like that and recommend this book.The title says it all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff
I haven't had a chance to read the whole book however what I have read has been helpful and informative.The book itself was shipped in excellent condition and, like many of the books I've bought through Amazon, I think I purchased it used and it looks new.And, I don't plan on just using it to balance out my washing machine ;-). ...

Product Description
Thank heavens for Title IX. That dusty piece of 1970s legislation not only made an entire generation of American women fitter and stronger and more self-confident, but it also gave fathers throughout the country a greater opportunity to bond with their daughters.

The evidence fills the covers of this collection of essays by a stellar roster of sports journalists, champion athletes, and celebrated writers. In the Introduction, basketball star Rebecca Lobo recalls how her dad’s advice continued to ring in her ears long after she last played hoops with him on the gravel driveway of their Massachusetts home. Sportswriting legend Dan Shaughnessy celebrates his daughters’ eye-opening softball exploits. Chris Evert recounts how her tennis coach father, Jimmy, taught her coolness under fire. Bill Simmons proudly bequeaths his love of the NBA to his preschool-aged daughter. Doris Kearns Goodwin explains how the not-so-simple act of filling in a scorecard for a father can be an act of love. Mike Veeck, minor-league team owner (and son of baseball’s great impresario, Bill Veeck), writes about the terrifying disease that blinded his daughter, Rebecca, and how they learned from his own father’s example in dealing with disability.

A companion volume to the acclaimed ESPN Books anthology, Fathers & Sons & Sports, Fathers & Daughters & Sports will appeal to everyone who has been either a father or a daughter, or can see himself or herself in these engaging and emotional vignettes. Whether the stories take place on a court, rink, diamond, in the dressage arena, or in the press box, they are universal in appeal, and will touch the hearts of anyone who has ever shot hoops, kicked the ball around, or played catch with a parent or child—and has seen the positive effect these games have on us. ...
