Just recently published "Triangulate Your Golf Swing" is written for the average golfer that is interested in improving their swing. It looks at what all good golfers do the same rather than what they do differently. The drills start simple and systematically progress to a full swing basics. It is available in paperback and for the kindle.

The Official Rulebook of Field Football.

This is a NEW lawn game like disc golf, except players use footballs and a mini-goal post! Features individual, group, and team rules and play instructions. Visit us online at for video instruction and our aStore with everything you need to get started on one Amazon page. Makes a great gift or new hobby!

The official Rulebook covers every detail including league formation and divisions. Field Football features kicking and throwing. Players must clear pylon sets before attempting the uprights for points.

For readers interested in historic fiction, "Pig-skinned..." is my Bestselling football Novel about integration at the University of Alabama. The story follows a father and son through the aftermath of a hate crime that divides the locker room. Old enemies resurface and the Mitchell family brings back a vigilante to help. Readers follow the Mitchell family from their inception to their present life in the modern South. From Angola in 1785 to Alabama, slavery brings the first Mitchell after an inner tribal dispute results in his being banished. Check out "Pig-skinned..." (recommended for mature readers).

Chasing Greatness: Johnny Miller, Arnold Palmer, and the Miracle at Oakmont
I loved this book. It reads like a collection of compelling mini-biographies, weaved around the 1973 U.S. Open.

the 1969 miracle mets: the improbable story of the world's greatest underdog team.

Don't forget about all of the gamesmanship books - especially those by Stephen Potter. There is also my book, "The Psychology of Losing - Tricks, Traps & Sharks". More than 80 sports sharks are described PLUS the many ways these efforts can be stopped. The subtitle is: "Protect yourself from ruthless gamesmanship." If you honor sportsmanship, then you should learn about how opponents can trick you and what you can do.

Steven Cohen has a new book out about some of his stories with soccer and a kind of "idiots guide" style primer for cricket. It's called "Not Blowing Smoke" and it's a fun read if you are a soccer fan or interested in cricket.

I just finished reading a new book, Unsinkable, about Abby Sunderland, a 16-year old who attempted to sail around the world alone and was shipwrecked in the Indian Ocean. Here's a link: It's such a great portrait of courage and strength of will in the face of overwhelming odds.

BOXING'S TOP TEN by Steve McGuire. Lists top ten of all time in divisions, etc.
Top matches in divisions. Top Trilogies (like Gotti\Ward; Zale\Graziano; Ali\Frazier.
Fine book for real boxing fans who know the best fights are usually the smaller guys.
