<p><b>Based on her inspiring, viral 2018 commencement speech to Barnard College鈥檚 graduates in New York City, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author, two-time Olympic gold medalist and FIFA World Cup champion Abby Wambach delivers her empowering rally cry for women to unleash their individual power, unite with their pack, and emerge victorious together.</b></p><p>Abby Wambach became a champion because of her incredible talent as a soccer player. She became an icon because of her remarkable wisdom as a leader. As the co-captain of the 2015 Women鈥檚 World Cup Champion Team, she created a culture not just of excellence, but of honor, commitment, resilience, and sisterhood. She helped transform a group of individual women into one of the most successful, powerful and united Wolfpacks of all time. </p><p>In her retirement, Abby鈥檚 ready to do the same for her new team: All Women Everywhere. </p><p>In <i>Wolfpack</i>, Abby鈥檚 message to women is:</p><p><i>We have never been Little Red Riding Hood. We Are the Wolves.</i><br /><i>We must wander off the path and blaze a new one: together.</i></p><p>She insists that women must let go of old rules of leadership that neither include or serve them. She鈥檚 created a new set of Wolfpack rules to help women unleash their individual power, unite with their Wolfpack, and change the landscape of their lives and world: from the family room to the board room to the White House. </p><p>路 <b>Make failure your fuel:</b> Transform failure to wisdom and power. <br />路 <b>Lead from the bench:</b> Lead from wherever you are. <br />路 <b>Champion each other:</b> Claim each woman鈥檚 victory as your own. <br />路 <b>Demand the effing ball:</b> Don鈥檛 ask permission: take what you鈥檝e earned.</p><p>In Abby鈥檚 vision, we are not Little Red Riding Hoods, staying on the path because we鈥檙e told to. <i>We are the wolves</i>, fighting for a better tomorrow for ourselves, our pack, and all the future wolves who will come after us.</p>

<p>When a career-ending injury saw former Ireland and Millwall striker Richie Sadlier retire from football at age 24, his life spiralled out of control.</p><p>Without structure or a sense of purpose, and fuelled by a dependency on alcohol, he spent years running from the dark memories and feelings that had haunted him since childhood. Until one day he hit rock bottom and decided to confront his demons.</p><p><i>Recovering</i> written with Dion Fanning is about a life shaped by efforts to escape, and how it is possible to rebuild that life, piece by piece, with the right help.</p><p>Inspiring and ground-breaking, it is an important reflection on the need to move away from perceptions of shame in our discussions about mental health, sex, relationships and addiction.</p>

<i>The Club </i>is the previously untold inside story of how English soccer鈥檚 Premier League became the wildest, richest, most popular sports product on the planet.<br /> 聽<br /> This is a sports and business tale of how money, ambition, and twenty-five years of drama remade an ancient institution into a twenty-first-century entertainment empire. No one knew it when their experiment began, but without any particular genius or acumen, the motley cast of billionaires and hucksters behind the modern Premier League struck gold.<br /><br /> Pretty soon, everyone wanted to try their luck, from Russian oligarchs to Emirati sheikhs, American tycoons, and Asian Tiger titans. Some succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Some lost everything. Today, players are sold for tens of millions, clubs are valued in the billions, and games are beamed out to nearly two hundred countries, all while the league struggles to preserve its English soul.<br /><br /> Deeply researched and drawing on one hundred exclusive interviews, including the key decision makers at every major English team, <i>The Club</i> is the definitive and wildly entertaining narrative of how the Premier League took over the world.

<b>A mazy dribble through the recent history of European soccer, showing how shifting styles and influence have shaped the game.<br /><br /></b>In the early 1990s, the Dutch footballing philosophy was worshipped across the continent. Then the baton passed to the Italians, who clearly boasted Europe's strongest league. But when France started winning everything at the international level its national academy became the template for others, until suddenly, almost out of nowhere, Europe's most revered player and manager both hailed from Portugal. Next, Barcelona and Spain won everything during a very obvious four-year period of dominance, before tiki-taka's decline meant Bayern and Germany took control. Finally, Europe's most successful coaches found themselves competing in England, introducing a brilliant cacophony of styles to the Premier League.<br /><br /><i>Zonal Marking </i>is a glorious travelogue through soccer's triumphant styles and characters.<br />

I've known Tom Byer for 25 years and over those years we've talked a lot of soccer. In that time, he's focused his coaching skills on children and reached the point where he is, without any doubt, one of the world's leading thinkers on teaching children the technical skills of soccer. This book should be bought by every parent in Britain, Canada and the United States 鈥?countries where I've had involvement with soccer 鈥?and beyond to understand what a child who likes soccer can learn and how they can learn. It's not a textbook; it's a guide. It's a philosophy that is so basic and so true it's just amazing that it's taking so long to be recognized. Many people in soccer still don't get it.<br />I've been involved in soccer as a player and coach for over 40 years, so trust me when I tell you that this book is gold dust for your kids.<br /><br />Paul Mariner<br />Ex-England international (35 caps)<br />UEFA Cup winner (1981)<br />F.A. Cup winner (1978)

<p>Wembley, 30 July 1966鈥?Geoff Hurst completes his hat trick鈥?England are the World Cup champions.</p><p>Everyone knows how the story ends, but how did it begin? How did Alf Ramsey assemble an England team to win the trophy for the first, and so far only time? The choice of the final eleven was far from straightforward: in just over three years Ramsey selected no less than fifty players and, at the start of 1966, two of the winning team had still to make their debuts for England.</p><p>This book charts the chequered path to eventual victory, assesses both the players who made the final squad and those who lost out and, with the help of previously unpublished photographs, provides a unique chronicle of professional football over fifty years ago.</p>

<p>An absolutely essential book for every modern football fan, about the development of Premier League tactics, published to coincide with 25 years of the competition.</p><p>Back in 1992, English football was stuck in the dark ages, emerging from a five-year ban from European competition. The game was physical, bruising and attritional, based on strength over speed, aggression over finesse. It was the era of the midfield general, reducers, big men up front and getting it in the mixer; 4-4-2 was the order of the day. Few teams experimented tactically.</p><p>And then, almost overnight, it all changed. The creation of the Premier League coincided with one of the most seismic rule changes in football history: the abolition of the back-pass. Suddenly defenders had no-get-out-of-jail-free card, goalkeepers had to be able to field and play the ball and the pace of the game quickened immeasurably. Tactics evolved dramatically, helped by an increased foreign influence.</p><p>The Mixer is the first book to delve deep into the tactical story of the Premier League, and take a long view of how the game has developed over the last quarter century. From Ferguson鈥檚 directness to Keegan鈥檚 relentlessly attacking Newcastle outfit, to Mourinho鈥檚 cagey, reactive Chelsea, all the way to Ranieri鈥檚 counter-attacking champions, The Mixer is one of the most entertaining, rich and knowledgeable football books ever written.</p>
