Next they examine the cognitive traps that the gambler may fall into and the therapeutic interventions for putting an end to the irresistible need to gamble, with the penultimate chapter looking at how long-term abstinence can achieved.

This is also a history of college and pro basketball in its years of innocence, the 1940's and 50's, when Molinas...

We meet Pastrano's best friend, Ralph Dupas, determined to have his pal lose weight and under his tutelage, Pastrano lost 60 pounds and learned to fight. Fourteen years later, Pastrano looked to regain his title. ". . . It gets a lot tougher to get out of bed," he told Izenberg,...

Cobb held eight consecutive batting titles the first time he stepped up to hit against Ruth, whom Stanton (The Final Season) describes as "a platter-faced, gray flannelled 20-year-old" rookie pitcher in 1915.

Its practitioners have created new statistical tools and revised our old ways of thinking about established measures such as the batting average, tactics such as the sacrifice bunt, and even who among the greats was truly great. This introduction to the basics of sabermetric analysis explains concepts including normalization,...
