In the Wimbledon men s final Centre Court was a stage set worthy of Shakespearean drama Five time champion Roger Federer was on track to take his rightful place as the most dominant player in the history of the game He just needed to cling to his trajectory So in the last few moments of daylight Centre Court witnessed a coronation Only it wasn t a crowning for the Swiss heir apparent but for a swashbuckling Spaniard Twenty two year old Rafael Nadal prevailed in five sets in what was according to the author essentially a four hour forty eight minute infomercial for everything that is right about tennis a festival of skill accuracy grace strength speed endurance determination and sportsmanship It was also the encapsulation of a fascinating rivalry hard fought and of historic proportions br br In the tradition of John McPhee s classic i Levels of the Game Strokes of Genius i deconstructs this defining moment in sport using that match as the backbone of a provocative thoughtful and entertaining look at the science art psychology technology strategy and personality that go into a single tennis match With vivid intimate detail Wertheim re creates this epic battle in a book that is both a study of the mechanics and art of the game and the portrait of a rivalry as dramatic as that of Ali Frazier Palmer Nicklaus and McEnroe Borg, Using the tips truths and stats they explore in their i New York Times i bestseller i Scorecasting i two dads pack super sports savvy and important math and financial concepts into a fun and heartwarming first novel for kids br New kid Mitch Sloan wants to fit in but his nerdy love of statistics and making money isn t winning him any friends in his sports loving town until he finds the perfect way to attain instant popularity But running a football betting ring at school eventually turns sour and Mitch loses the only real friend he s made He ll have to win her back by using his brainpower for good and helping the school football team achieve victory i if i they ll listen to the advice of a former bookie br, In Scorecasting University of Chicago behavioral economist Tobias Moskowitz teams up with veteran Sports Illustrated writer L Jon Wertheim to overturn some of the most cherished truisms of sports and reveal the hidden forces that shape how basketball baseball football and hockey games are played won and lost br br Drawing from Moskowitz s original research as well as studies from fellow economists such as bestselling author Richard Thaler the authors look at the influence home field advantage has on the outcomes of games in all sports and why it exists the surprising truth about the universally accepted axiom that defense wins championships the subtle biases that umpires exhibit in calling balls and strikes in key situations the unintended consequences of referees tendencies in every sport to swallow the whistle and more br br Among the insights that Scorecasting reveals br Why Tiger Woods is prone to the same mistake in high pressure putting situations that you and I areWhy professional teams routinely overvalue draft picks The myth of momentum or the hot hand in sports and why so many fans coaches and broadcasters fervently subscribe to itWhy NFL coaches rarely go for a first down on fourth down situations even when their reluctance to do so reduces their chances of winning In an engaging narrative that takes us from the putting greens of Augusta to the grid iron of a small parochial high school in Arkansas Scorecasting will forever change how you view the game whatever your favorite sport might be, From a popular senior writer for Sports Illustrated comes this high stakes boys on the road story about the most unlikely of phenoms a heavyset bipolar and endlessly charming pool hustler named Kid Delicious br br In most sports the pinnacle is Wheaties box notoriety But in the world of pool notoriety is the last thing a hustler desires Such is the dilemma that faces one Danny Basavich an affable generously proportioned Jewish kid from Jersey who flounders through high school until he discovers the one thing he excels at the felt and hits the road br br Running the Table spins the outrageous tale of Kid Delicious and his studly if less talented set up man Bristol Bob Never was there a more entertaining or mismatched pair of sidekicks as together they go underground into the flavorfully seamy world of pool to learn the art of the hustle and experience the highs and lows of life on the road Their four year odyssey takes them from Podunk pool halls to slick urban billiard rooms across America as they manage one night to take down as much as only to lose so much the next night that they lack gas money to get home With every stop the action gets hotter the calls get closer and Delicious s prowess with a cue stick becomes known more and more widely Ultimately Delicious sheds his cover once and for all and becomes professional pool s biggest sensation since Minnesota Fats br br In a book sure to appeal to fans of Bringing Down the House and Positively Fifth Street Wertheim evokes a subculture full of nefarious but loveable characters and illuminates America s fascination with games and gambling He also paints a lasting portrait of an insanely talented and magnetic hustler who is literally larger than life
