For a quarter century, the annual Best American Sports Writing has showcased the greatest sports journalism of the previous year. This year’s guest editor, acclaimed author Howard Bryant, continues the tradition, seeking out writing that best captures the unpredictable journey of sports. Triumphantly and painfully, these stories reflect on that journey, asking difficult questions about who we are, as individuals and as a nation: What does it mean when a football player takes a knee during the national anthem, who decides where the remains of an American legend should rest, and how far will people go to reclaim dreams that have long slipped away? Spanning different sports, disciplines, and styles, these pieces are, above all, inspirational to readers, writers, and athletes around the world, proof of the bonds and breaking points that exist between and within us all.

Scrum is the most popular approach to Agile software development. It's been around for more than 20 years, and it's used by tens of millions of practitioners. Even so, by some estimates, over 70% of Scrum adoptions fall flat and get stuck. Developers find themselves using "Zombie Scrum" processes that look like Scrum from a distance, but are slow, lifeless, and joyless instead. Zombie Scrum Survival Guide doesn't just reveal why this happens: it shows how to supercharge your Scrum outcomes, and have more fun along the way. Writing for all individuals, teams, and organizations who want to achieve more with Scrum, this guide combines theoretical foundations with practical approaches, exercises, and facilitation techniques for making progress in widely diverse situations, and engaging everyone in the organization to get more out of Scrum. You'll find specific guidance for building what the user needs, shipping faster, improving continuously, self-organizing your teams, and more. Drawing on extensive experience empowering developers, the authors also introduce powerful Liberating Structures patterns for enriching group interactions, so Scrum makes development more effective and fulfilling for everyone involved.

Eclipsing Memorial Stadium on a Husker football game day, deer season is arguably the largest single sporting event of the year in Nebraska, with more than one hundred thousand hunters going afield with the hopes of tagging a trophy buck or bull. Nebraska’s Bucks and Bulls tells the stories and shares the photographs of the greatest whitetail, mule deer, and elk shot in Nebraska. Collected through firsthand interviews with the hunters, these personal hunting stories span the decades from the mid-1940s through the 2010s. Each story shares the excitement and adventure of the hunt while weaving in Nebraska history, ecology, and geography. Photographs of the trophy animals showcase not only the quality and variety of big-game hunting in Nebraska but also the changes in hunting clothes, gear, guns, and vehicles through the state’s history. Recounted by Joel W. Helmer, an avid hunter and official measurer for the Boone and Crockett Club, which created the scoring system for measuring North American big-game animals, each chapter tells the story of a buck or bull certified through official state or national records books. Nebraska’s Bucks and Bulls has finally gathered the state’s greatest hunting tales in one place.
