For fans of Ronda Rousey's My Fight Your Fight and John Kavanagh's Win or Learn comes the first book from UFC fighter and now analyst Dan Hardy, who lifts the lid on his own career and writes with insight and eloquence on all things MMA and UFC, the brutal and ever-evolving sport that launched such superstars as Conor McGregor, Michael Bisping, Georges St-Pierre, Nate Diaz and Amanda Nunes. Dan Hardy's first book is much more than a straightforward MMA autobiography. Taking the key fights from his career, Hardy explores the sport with the unparalleled insight that has made him the best analyst working today. From training in China with Shaolin monks, to how MMA helped him channel his rage, to psychedelics and the ceremony in Peru that changed his life, to tapping into his 'reptilian brain' and the psychological warfare of UFC, to his epic title fight with Georges St-Pierre. Hardy also speaks eloquently of the heart condition that forced him to stop fighting, the road to recovery, and the evolution of a sport that flies in the face of mainstream disapproval to entertain and thrill millions of obsessives around the globe.

At their basic level, sporting events are about numbers: wins and losses, percentages and points, shots and saves, clocks and countdowns. However, sports narratives quickly leave the realm of statistics. The stories we tell and retell, sometimes for decades, make sports dramatic and compelling. Just like any great drama, sports imply conflict, not just battles on the field of play, but clashes of personalities, goals, and strategies. In telling these stories, we create heroes, but we also create villains. This book is about the latter, those players who transgress norms and expectations and who we label the "bad boys" of sports. Using a variety of approaches, these 13 new essays examine the cultural, social, and rhetorical implications of sports villainy. Each chapter focuses on a different athlete and sport, questioning issues such as how notorious sports figures are defined to be "bad" within particular sports and within the larger culture, the role media play in creating antiheroes, fan reactions when players cross boundaries, and how those boundaries shift depending on the athlete's gender, sexuality, and race.

Lu Hsiu-lien�s journey is the story of Taiwan. Through her successive drives for gender equality, human rights, political reform, Taiwan independence, and, currently, environmental protection, Lu has played a key role in Taiwan�s evolution from dictatorship to democracy. The election in 2000 of Democratic Progressive Party leader Chen Shui-bian to the presidency, with Lu as his vice president, ended more than fifty years of rule by the Kuomintang (Nationalist Party). Taiwan�s painful struggle for democratization is dramatized here in the life of Lu, a feminist leader and pro-democracy advocate who was imprisoned for more than five years in the 1980s. Unlike such famous Asian women politicians as Burma�s Aung San Suu Kyi, India�s Indira Gandhi, and Pakistan�s Benazir Bhutto, Lu Hsiu-lien grew up in a family without political connections. Her impoverished parents twice attempted to give her away for adoption, and as an adult she survived cancer and imprisonment, later achieving success as an elected politician�the first self-made woman to serve with such prominence in Asia. My Fight for a New Taiwan�s rich narrative gives readers an insider's perspective on Taiwan�s unique blend of Chinese and indigenous culture and recent social transformation.

The horrors of WWII were still fresh in our minds when the Korean War broke out. June 25, 1950, when the North Korean Communists crossed the Thirty-Eighth Parallel to invade South Korea, changed the course of my life. Betty, her roommate Marian Ott, Richard?s old Trenton buddy and roommate Harvey Seeman, and Richard were driving to ?Old Man?s Cave,? which is about a hundred miles southwest of Columbus. It was a day made for poets and we couldn?t have been in a more festive mood. The radio was tuned to the classical music station on WOSU when the program was interrupted with the news that the North Korean Communist troops had crossed the Thirty-Eighth Parallel to invade South Korea. Korea? Where?s that? Richard flunked his physical for induction into WWII but would pass muster to fight in what was tragically mislabeled as a mere ?police action.? Richard had proposed marriage to Betty earlier that spring, with plans for a wedding the following December of ?50. Little over eight months since their trip to Old Man?s Cave, Richard was among the first draftees to enter the war. The title of this book is apt. Had I been identified, it could never have been used as a symbol of American fighting forces throughout the globe. Since it was used as a symbol at the peak of the Cold War, the advertising executive who handled the USO account had no way of knowing that I was not one of the 36,0000 who were KIA in the war. And he also presumed that if I survived the war I could never prove it to be me. The AP release stated the photograph was taken by a man with the initials JM. An elderly woman in the World Wide AP photo department said, ?Why, that?s Jimmy Martenhofff!?

You got it because you received it. If you are missing something good, it’s not God’s fault. God has given you all good things, but if you are missing something, then you have not received it. You must receive what is given to you in order for it to be in your possession. God has healed your physical body and mind, but if you are sick, then you have not received what God has done for you. God has already made you rich by Christ, but if you are living poorly, then you have not received his wealth. God is a god of grace, which means that he has given all things to us freely, but we must receive those things by faith. The natural man cannot receive things from the Spirit of God. Within this book, I tell you how to receive everything that God has given to you.

Now a major Sky original production - Season 2 streaming now THE NUMBER ONE INTERNATIONAL AND SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER. A Discovery of Witches is the first in the must-read ALL SOULS trilogy. It begins with absence and desire. It begins with blood and fear. It begins with a discovery of witches. Fall under the spell of Diana and Matthew in the stunning first volume of the No.1 internationally bestselling ALL SOULS trilogy. A world of witches, daemons and vampires. A manuscript which holds the secrets of their past and the key to their future. Diana and Matthew - the forbidden love at the heart of it. When historian Diana Bishop opens an alchemical manuscript in the Bodleian Library, it's an unwelcome intrusion of magic into her carefully ordered life. Though Diana is a witch of impeccable lineage, the violent death of her parents while she was still a child convinced her that human fear is more potent than any witchcraft. Now Diana has unwittingly exposed herself to a world she's kept at bay for years; one of powerful witches, creative, destructive daemons and long-lived vampires. Sensing the significance of Diana's discovery, the creatures gather in Oxford, among them the enigmatic Matthew Clairmont, a vampire geneticist. Diana is inexplicably drawn to Matthew and, in a shadowy world of half-truths and old enmities, ties herself to him without fully understanding the ancient line they are crossing. As they begin to unlock the secrets of the manuscript and their feelings for each other deepen, so the fragile balance of peace unravels...

This is Your Brain on Sports is the book for sports fans searching for a deeper understanding of the games they watch and the people who play them. Sports Illustrated executive editor and bestselling author L. Jon Wertheim teams up with Tufts psychologist Sam Sommers to take readers on a wild ride into the inner world of sports. Through the prism of behavioral economics, neuroscience, and psychology, they reveal the hidden influences and surprising cues that inspire and derail us—on the field and in the stands—and by extension, in corporate board rooms, office settings, and our daily lives. In this irresistible narrative romp, Wertheim and Sommers usher us from professional football to the NBA to Grand Slam tennis, from the psychology of athletes self-handicapping their performance in the boxing ring or the World Series, to an explanation of why even the glimpse of a finish line can lift us beyond ordinary physical limits. They explore why Tom Brady and other starting NFL quarterbacks all seem to look like fashion models; why fans of teams like the Cubs, Mets, and any franchise from Cleveland love rooting for a loser; why the best players make the worst coaches; why hockey goons (and fans) would rather fight at home than on the road; and why the arena t-shirt cannon has something to teach us about human nature. In short, this book is an entertaining and thought-provoking journey into how psychology and behavioral science collide with the universe of wins-and-losses, coaching changes, underdogs, and rivalry games. — Boston Globe, Best Books of 2016, Sports

The strength of My Fight With God is that it tackles many stumbling block Scripture passages and helps skeptics, confused new believers, and seasoned believers alike to understand God’s Word from a vantage of faith.

Book Three of The Guardians Series “You scared her away!” Ellie accused, and Sean realized she was angry. “I nearly broke my bleedin’ neck,” he protested. “Couyon!” Her voice rose. “You’re being ridiculous.” “I barely caught myself,” he insisted. “That monster tree of yours almost took me out!” “This is my home—you need to leave.” “But I just got here.” “You weren’t invited!” “Which I won’t take personally, even though we’re partners and all.” “Partners?” The disbelief on her face was almost comical. “We are not partners!” “Sure we are. You heard Stuart. In tandem. You know what tandem means, don’t you, love?” She pointed at the door. “Go away, Irishman!” “McDougal,” he corrected. “But you can call me Sean.” “Que diriez-vous je vous appelle un idiot!” she snarled, only part of which he understood—idiot translated well enough—and then she closed her eyes and took a deep, ragged breath. Then another. Then she took a careful step back, as if she’d suddenly found herself standing at some dangerous, unknown precipice. Dousing the fire, he thought, oddly disappointed. “I’ve turned my ankle,” he continued, just to poke at her. He limped back a step. “I’ll need to ice it.” Her eyes opened. Fell to his booted foot. “Might be fractured,” he added. “You are a strange and frustrating man,” she said. “Aye,” he agreed somewhat apologetically and smiled at her. ★★★ After Ellie Broussard saves Sean McDougal’s son from drowning, she walks away, unwilling to involve herself with the rakish Irishman and his charming boy. Ellie has suffered a devastating loss, and her world is one of chosen isolation and calculated vengeance. She has only one focus: to find the monster that stole her child and turn his world to ash. Sean can relate to Ellie’s suffering. Having lost his wife to cancer, his sole focus has become raising his boy, and love…well, love can take a long walk. He’s in Louisiana to locate a cache of stolen art, and even if he’s taken aback—and reluctantly intrigued—by the mysterious and chilly Ellie Broussard, he knows better than to tumble down that rabbit hole. But when they’re thrown together on assignment to recover the cache, Sean and Ellie have no choice but to put aside their mutual misgivings and work side by side. To share; to trust; to discover they are not as separate as they appear. And as Ellie’s deadly hunt approaches its culmination, they must risk everything they hold dear to stop a murderer who is readying his next strike, and to save an orphaned girl whose only hope lies in their willingness to defy the darkness and step into the light… A steamy thriller with characters you won’t forget…romantic suspense at its best.

But all around us are flashes of grace, shining examples of God’s love. Amy Seiffert says it’s the everyday moments that Jesus shines through: making time for a friend even when your to-do list is pages long; apologizing to your neighbor when you don’t want to admit you are wrong; opening the Bible when your soul feels hollow and empty.

A perfect gift to affirm and encourage any woman, Grace Looks Amazing on You is a timeless Christian message packed with personal story and reflection, Scripture, and deep biblical truth.
