Lisa Frederic was just your average Alaska fisherwoman when a vacation in Nome to see the burled-arch finish of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race changed her life forever. The mushers’ devotion to their dogs and the sheer grit required to complete the epic race lit a spark in Lisa. She started as a volunteer at checkpoints along the race, became an apprentice to Iditarod champion Jeff King, and, finally, mushed her own dog team in the world’s greatest sled dog race. Running with Champions is Lisa’s riveting account of her amazing journey, from head-bashing encounters with trees along the trails to the panic of losing control of a powerful team of dogs in the wilds of Alaska, all leading to her first attempt as a forty-something at the Big One: the 1,049-mile Iditarod. Lisa’s inspiring story speaks to everyone who has ever followed a dream and found that the dream realized is even bigger than the imagined one.

The first book to gather firsthand accounts of successful practices, and thinking habits, of sports legends and super-athletes—from across sports including football, baseball, basketball, boxing, golf, car-racing, and swimming—this work holds lessons that can power not only athletic success, but winning in any daily challenges of life or work. The result of years of research, Psychology of Champions offers the very personal words of star athletes who explain how they overcame such obstacles as fear, discouragement, and anxiety, and were able to move on to success. Each story—including from those of baseball great Ted Williams, basketball star Michael Jordan, football's famed Deion Sanders, and dozens more from across sports —is unique. Yet, the authors determine that, when all is said and done, the overriding variables accounting for the greatest success fall into three categories: motivation, confidence, and concentration. Barrell and Ryback spell out the rules for such success after each section in this absorbing book. The result is a book that not only entertains and educates us with firsthand accounts of ever-popular sports heroes, but also instructs athletes, amateur or professional, and arguably anyone with a goal to achieve in work or life. In-the-moment accounts reveal just what to do in various critical periods of sports competition—from being at bat in baseball, to making an instantaneous decision as a quarterback, firing the winning basket in the dying moments of a game, or launching the winning move in boxing or judo. Barrell and Ryback draw the lessons together in what they term The Focus Edge mindset. That mindset—and this book— says one former Olympian, take greatness and make it accessible to you and me.

In 1875, John Wilson Murray—known as “Canada’s Sherlock Holmes”—was appointed Ontario’s first permanent Government Detective, commissioned to investigate crimes such as murder, rape, and arson. His first homicide assignment was to look into the suspicious death of farmer Ralph Findlay, found dead of a gunshot wound. More than a century after the inception of the OPP Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB), retired OPP Inspector Andrew F. Maksymchuk explores the intervening years of Ontario’s law enforcement history. Through the first-hand perspective of a police officer, the reader is made privy to meticulous investigative procedures. Insight is given on cases as diverse as a prison inmate’s death by stabbing, a rash of suspicious fires, and the murder of a young girl. Dedicated to the officers who have risked and lost their lives, the past and present are united as we read and remember the Champions of the Dead.

The Athletics are one of the proudest franchises in the history of professional sports. After the glory days in Philadelphia and the dog days in Kansas City, they have enjoyed three distinct periods of success in Oakland. The Finley Years (1971-1975) In this free-wheeling era of the self-promoting and always unpredictable Charles Finley, the A's won five straight divisional championships and three straight World Series. It's all here: the "glow-in-the-dark" color uniforms, Rollie Fingers' handlebar moustache, and the drama of Reggie "Mr. October" Jackson's celebrated power in clutch situations. The Bash Brothers (1988-1990) Mark McGwire set a rookie record with 49 homers, and power teammate Jose Canseco pounded out 40 homeruns and stole 40 bases. These two weightlifters terrorized pitchers with their brute force. Then there's "hard cheese" fastballer (as only he can term it) Dennis Eckersley, who threw his three strikes, pumped his fist skyward, and walked off the mound. Billy Beane (1989-present) Ushering in a new "Moneyball" era of team-building and scouting, Billy Beane put together what Baseball America called "the best minor league system in baseball." He is determined to restore the dynasty. Three eras of Oakland greatness are profiled in this book by respected San Francisco Chronicle columnist and author Glenn Dickey.
