The Odds

One gambler is a manic former cokehead with an Ivy League degree. The second is a college dropout trying to make a living at the only thing he enjoyed at school-gambling. The third, one of Vegas's most respected bookmakers, is perilously close to burning out. The Odds follows the lives of these three professional gamblers through a college basketball season in a one-of-a-kind city struggling to reconcile its lawless past with its family-friendly makeover. With a wiseguy attitude and a faultless eye and ear for the sights and sounds of Vegas and its denizens, Chad Millman has created a portrait that the Wall Street Journal called 'fascinating. . . often screamingly funny.' The Las Vegas Review-Journal had just one word for the book: 'Superb.'

The Endurance Handbook
17,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

Are you a triathlete, runner, cyclist, swimmer, cross-country skier, or other athlete seeking greater endurance? The Endurance Handbook teaches athletes how to stay healthy, achieve optimal athletic potential, and be injury-free for many productive years. Dr. Philip Maffetone’s approach to endurance offers a truly “individualized” outlook and unique system that he has refined over three decades of training and treating athletes, ranging from world champions to weekend warriors. Maffetone’s training and racing philosophy emphasizes building a strong aerobic base for increased fat burning, weight loss, sustained energy, and a healthy immune system. Good nutrition and stress reduction are also key to this common-sense, big-picture approach. Dr. Maffetone also dispels many of the commonly held myths that linger in participatory sports—and which adversely impact performance—and explains the “truths” about endurance, such as: The need to train slower to race faster will enable your aerobic system to improve endurance Why expensive running shoes can actually cause foot and leg injuries The fact that refined carbohydrates actually reduce endurance energy and disrupt hormone balance How overtraining can be avoided in its earliest stages And much more! If you are looking to increase your endurance and maximize your athletic potential, The Endurance Handbook is your one-stop guide to training and racing effectively. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team. In addition to books on popular team sports, we also publish books for a wide variety of athletes and sports enthusiasts, including books on running, cycling, horseback riding, swimming, tennis, martial arts, golf, camping, hiking, aviation, boating, and so much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Heiress Terri Jackman was brutally murdered, and everyone-including Minneapolis Homicide detective 'Mars' Bahr-believes that her abusive husband, basketball star Tayron 'T-Jack' Jackman, did it. But he has an unshakeable alibi... T-Jack was with Terri's parents and lawyer signing divorce papers when the killing took place. Now, to add insult to injury, he's pocketing a $100 million settlement-the price Terri's desperate parents paid to get her out of the marriage. Mars feels a burning need for justice in this case. But he's transferring out of Homicide in just ten day and facing a family crisis that could cost him his son. Is there time to find the flaw in T-Jack's perfect crime? Soon Mars has hit the wall, which is broad and blue and looks like the new Chief of Police. Politics block his every shot...and so is a killer who has left no loose ends, just a path strewn with dead bodies. Because no one can squeal when they're as silent as the grave...
