Gary Player's Black Book contains fifty questions and detailed responses from eighteen-time major winner Gary Player. The book, divided into three parts, focuses on specific scenarios and problems that arise in golf, life, and business. In the first section on golf, topics include putting, scoring, etiquette, the mental side of the game, and fitness and nutrition. In the section on life, Player, the father of six and grandfather to twenty-two, addresses issues such as parenting, who to turn to when in need of advice, and more. Finally, in the section on business, he details how to deal with competition, among other topics. Player responds to questions such as: • Golf: How do I play a bunker shot from a plugged lie? • Life: I feel like I’ve lost the passion for what I do. How do I get that back? • Business: When people criticize my work I take it very personally. How do you handle criticism? The 2012 recipient of the PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award, Player draws from both on and off the course experiences dealing with competitors, businesspeople, and family. In doing so, he offers a unique glimpse into handling adversity with regard to these relationships. The advice that he offers is invaluable to fans of all ages.

What is the inside behind-the scenes story of Indian Casinos? More money than Las Vegas, more visitors than Disney World, and operating as sovereign nations exempt from all state civil law and many criminal laws; what is the“inside scoop”? This is the only authoritative exploration of these multi-billion dollar enterprises; written by a genuine insider: the casino “guru” who has developed, operated, managed, and marketed Indian casinos all over the country. With unprecedented access to and cooperation from Tribes, the casinos, the staffs, the regulators, the lawyers, and the financers, the author (see “About the Author”) is also an award-winning newspaper journalist with the writing credentials (and chops) to clearly present the subject. With insider information, clear explanations, participation from Tribal officials, and authoritative revelations, the book is presented in story-progression form of how Indian casinos collectively generated more revenue last year than Microsoft and Google combined.

Las Vegas is known the world over as an oasis of entertainment in the Nevada desert, but to more than a million people of exceptionally varied origins, it is also home. Yet this city is rarely mentioned in studies of ethnicity or immigration, and the rich diversity of its population is largely invisible to Las Vegans and visitors alike. Such ignorance can be partly explained by the effects of the city's rapid growth. Las Vegas largely lacks traditional ethnic neighborhoods, and the restaurants and markets that cater to its diverse population groups are mostly hidden away in anonymous strip malls. Nonetheless, a remarkable variety of nationalities and ethnic groups has been drawn here since the city's beginnings in 1905, and today Las Vegas's vital service industry, entrepreneurial opportunities, reasonable cost of living, and appeal as a retirement center attract many more. Recent world events and international currents of immigration have only enhanced this diversity. In The Peoples of Las Vegas, seventeen scholars profile thirteen of the ethnic groups that make up their city's population. kaleidoscope of ethnicity that helps define Las Vegas today and analyzes the economic and social conditions that make Las Vegas so attractive to recent immigrants. The individual contributors--most of whom are members of the groups they write about, and who come from a broad array of disciplines--discuss the motivations and processes of their group's migration to Las Vegas, economic pursuits, institutions and other means of preserving and transmitting their culture, involvement with the broader community, ties with their homelands, and recent demographic trends affecting each group. This collection of essays provides a provocative look into the vibrant ethnic life that lies just beneath the glittering surface of one of America's most unusual cities.

Gary Player's golf career will come full circle in April 2012 when he joins Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus as honorary starters at the Masters Tournament. Player rose from humble beginnings in South Africa to become an international golf superstar, and his success at Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters is the highlight of his impressive resume. His accomplishments include three Masters wins, the record for most starts at the Masters and numerous other distinctions. Player's career includes 167 worldwide wins, which includes all the Grand Slam titles on the regular tour and the senior tour. At age 76 you might think Player is ready to slow down, but in fact he is still a relevant and influential figure. His brand is thriving with business deals around the globe, and the tireless effort he put in long ago to make the game truly international is paying off as foreign-born players have dominated the majors in recent years. This book will highlight and celebrate Player's remarkable career with a special emphasis on his time in Augusta, and it also will tell how Player is an inspiration not only to his fellow South Africans but to golfers all around the globe

This is the One is a fascinating insight into the mindset and winning temperament of the recently retired Sir Alex Ferguson, the most success manager in English football. When This Is The One was first published in 2007 it was hailed by Michael Crick as 'one of the all-time Manchester United classics' and featured by The Times in their quest to find the 'Best Ever 50 Sports Books'. Written over the course of two eventful and controversial seasons, it offers a unique portrait of Sir Alex Ferguson from Daniel Taylor’s position behind the scenes as a football writer covering Manchester United for the Guardian. During the 2005-06 season, Taylor saw Ferguson at one of the lowest ebbs of his quarter of a century in charge, with a failing team, explosive fallouts with Roy Keane and Ruud van Nistelrooy, a disenchanted fan-base and speculation that he might be forced out of the job. The season that followed demonstrated why Ferguson deserves to be seen as the greatest manager the modern game has produced, with Manchester United deposing Chelsea as Premier League champions and eventually seeing off José Mourinho. Ferguson would later call it the 'greatest achievement' of his time at England’s biggest football club. This Is The One is the close-up, warts-and-all account of what happened during those two helterskelter seasons – the excruciating lows and the exhilarating highs. It is also a fascinating exploration of the many different facets of Ferguson himself, from his infamous 'hairdryer' treatment to the softer, more humane side of the most successful manager in the business.

In today's game, there is no place on the pitch for player contact, let alone the sort of hard, robust tackling that could earn a player the nickname 'Psycho'. But twenty-five years ago, things were different. Only when players really overstepped the mark were their names added to the referee's little black book. And 'Psycho' Pat Van den Hauwe had a reputation as one of the hardest players in the game. In a career encompassing some 401 Football League appearances for Birmingham City, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur and Millwall, he notched up two league titles and a European Cup Winners' Cup medal - but he also made his mark as one of the toughest and most feared defenders in the game.But Pat wasn't just a tough player on the pitch. The way he lived his life meant that he needed to be tough off the pitch as well. A 'hard nut' reputation invites people into your life who want to see how far they can push you - and Pat attracted such people by the bus-load.This autobiography is not the usual collection of career memories from an ex-pro. It is probably the most explicit book ever written by a former footballer. Throughout his career, and long after he left the game, Pat Van den Hauwe courted danger. In fact, he nearly paid the ultimate price for living life to the extreme.
