‘. . . being a player from India defines who I am. When I play, it’s for my parents, my coach, and my country.’ Meet Saina Nehwal—India’s star badminton player and World Number 4, Padma Shri and Khel Ratna awardee, the girl who brought laurels to India by winning an Olympic medal at the age of twenty-two.

Find out what a typical day in Saina’s life is like—rigorous training, a strict diet, and no parties or sleepovers.

It also includes a complete analysis of Sun Tzu's book The Art of War and its applications to games of today.

Brett Morton wanted to prove the experts were wrong. "Win at roulette?" they scoffed. "Impossible." You could almost hear them say "Bah! Humbug!" So he set about learning how to play, observing why people won and lost. Over the past ten years, he has debated with casino staff, statisticians, mathematicians, friends and other experts. All bar one were convinced that the casino could not be beaten – or if it could, then not consistently. But Morton insists the experts are mistaken, something he has learned through sheer discipline, by keeping it simple and understanding that winning at roulette is a percentage game. This book explains in plain language just how easy it is to win or lose at roulette. Winning occasionally is simple. His aim was to win consistently. Morton, after watching, playing and listening all over the world, distilled the information, working out why he too had been losing too often. From that base, Morton realised that winning every visit is impossible. Each spin of the wheel is a new and usually random event. Every spin is a fight against the casino's advantages. It was a challenge – to debunk the theorists, especially those who had never played. His research and hard work proved he was right: winning consistently is possible. Morton proved that mathematical theory and clinical statistics, flawless in concept, blinker common sense and have no place in determining why people win and lose in casinos. After all, taking British casinos as a good example, the odds against the player can be as small as 1.31% - yet the casinos still expect to win between 20 and 30% from roulette players over a year. Enough said! Despite the casino's edge and even playing with the American double-zero, roulette tackled with skill, discipline and experience is a game at which consistent winning is perfectly possible. But consistent winning does not mean that every casino visit ends with a celebration. It means winning most of the time and ensuring that losses on the horrific days are contained and do not destroy all the other good work. Morton explains the methods used, rates many of the well-known systems but above all brings a clear and refreshing vision to this tantalising game. The pundits are wrong! This book unlocks the secrets. It explains how and why you can Win at Roulette.

Playing to win means playing dirty… Holly Evans is intelligent, educated and crazy about sports—so how did she end up prancing about in a miniskirt and teasing her hair like some broadcasting bimbo? Of course, since she's already iced her journalistic integrity, Holly might as well indulge in a little fangirl lust for the ripped captain of Portland's hockey team. Luke Maguire sees right through Holly's bunny disguise, and he's ready to pull her into the locker room and strip it all off. Then Holly discovers someone on the team is profiting from a little over/under betting. Suddenly her lusting for Luke is going head-to-head with her reporting instincts. And if she's caught offside, there's no telling what the penalty will be…

"Many parents work more hours outside of the home and their lives are crowded with more obligations than ever before; many children spend their evenings and weekends trying out for all-star teams, traveling to regional and national tournaments, and eating dinner in the car while being shuttled between activities. In this vivid ethnography, based on almost 200 interviews with parents, children, coaches and teachers, Hilary Levey probes the increase in children's participation in activities outside of the home, structured and monitored by their parents, when family time is so scarce. As the parental "second shift" continues to grow, alongside it a second shift for children has emerged--especially among the middle- and upper-middle classes--which is suffused with competition rather than mere participation. What motivates these particular parents to get their children involved in competitive activities? Parents' primary concern is their children's access to high quality educational credentials--the biggest bottleneck standing in the way of, or facilitating entry into, membership in the upper-middle class. Competitive activities, like sports and the arts, are seen as the essential proving ground that will clear their children's paths to the Ivy League or other similar institutions by helping them to develop a competitive habitus. This belief, motivated both by reality and by perception, and shaped by gender and class, affects how parents envision their children's futures; it also shapes the structure of children's daily lives, what the children themselves think about their lives, and the competitive landscapes of the activities themselves"--

In this era of big media franchises, sports branding has crossed platforms, so that the sport, its television broadcast, and its replication in an electronic game are packaged and promoted as part of the same fan experience. Editors Robert Alan Brookey and Thomas P. Oates trace this development back to the unexpected success of Atari's Pong in the 1970s, which provoked a flood of sport simulation games that have had an impact on every sector of the electronic game market. From golf to football, basketball to step aerobics, electronic sports games are as familiar in the American household as the televised sporting events they simulate. This book explores the points of convergence at which gaming and sports culture merge.

Jason Emory has one motto: play hard, love hard…and win at all costs. It doesn't matter if he's on the ice or playing the field, his only goal is to win. For a life goal, it sounds pretty good.

At least, that what it feels like until a hot night with a beautiful stranger who seems oddly familiar—a stranger he can't forget. Megan Bradley loves working at her parents' bar. Why shouldn't she, when that gives her a chance to see her long-time crush up close and personal? Not that Jason knows who she is. Why would he, when she's nothing more than a modern day ugly duckling swimming in a sea of glittering swans? At least, until her best friend hatches a plan for an extreme makeover. All she wants is one night to never forget—but sometimes getting what you want isn't what you need. Can she walk away from the connection that should have never happened? And what happens when it's time to face the truth—especially when she realizes that one sexy hockey player will stop at nothing when it comes to winning?

Someone's going to have to let down their guard... Football star Cole Riley is notorious for doing as he pleases-on the field and off. He parties hard and fights harder, but if he doesn't clean up his act, his career is over-so Cole reluctantly agrees to work with image makeover consultant Savannah Brooks. He's not used to being told what to do, especially by some (admittedly hot) Southern belle. As for Savannah, she's not convinced she can transform this cocky (and aggressively sexy) force of nature. But she's determined to give it her best shot. When the sparks start to fly, Savannah lays down the ground rules: no personal complications. If she can turn off the tingle she feels every time Cole gives her a hot stare with his gorgeous baby blues, he can turn off his desire as well. But for two people determined to have it all, a hands-off policy can only last so long before one of them yields. Want more sexy sporting romance? Don't miss the rest of this steamy series which began with The Perfect Play. And check out Jaci's gorgeously romantic Hope series beginning with Hope Flames.
