‘This book carries a powerful message about the important role sport plays in the development of a nation and what it takes to achieve success on the world stage.’ - John Smit South Africa’s sportsmen and women have achieved huge success. World champions and record-breakers, they have dominated sport internationally in the fields of rugby, cricket, swimming and soccer, to name a few. Quest for Glory examines sporting success through the eyes of numerous South African sports personalities, including Gary Player, Bruce Fordyce, Penny Heyns, Ryk Neethling, Baby Jake Matlala, Naas Botha, François Pienaar, Gary Teichmann, Bob Skinstad, John Smit, Paul Treu, Shaun Pollock, Oscar Pistorius, Clive Barker and Tim Noakes. The book investigates questions such as: What defines success? What makes a good team great? How important is the role of mental application? What makes a team lose when they are expected to win, or win when they are expected to lose? How do successful teams and individuals plan and prepare effectively? In doing so, it considers a range of fascinating topics, including big-match temperament, the pyramid of success, mental toughness, self-confidence and self-belief. Insightful, entertaining and inspiring, Quest for Glory uncovers the key to sporting success.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has 6 million members in the United States today (and 13 million worldwide). Yet, while there has been extensive study of Mormon history, comparatively little scholarly attention has been paid to contemporary Mormons. The best sociological study of Mormon life, Thomas O'Dea's The Mormons, is now over fifty years old. What is it like to be a Mormon in America today? Melvyn Hammarberg attempts to answer this question by offering an ethnography of contemporary Mormons. In The Mormon Quest for Glory, Hammarberg examines Mormon history, rituals, social organization, family connections, gender roles, artistic traditions, use of media, and missionary work. He writes as a sympathetic outsider who has studied Mormon life for decades, and strives to explain the religious world of the Latter-day Saints through the lens of their own spiritual understanding. Drawing on a survey, participant observation, interviews, focus groups, attendance at religious gatherings, diaries, church periodicals, lesson manuals, and other church literature, Hammarberg aims to present a comprehensive picture of the religious world of the Latter-day Saints.

A part-time golf writer gets the royal treatment from a host of fine U.K. clubs in exchange for his implied promise to sing their courses glories in this memoir that meshes a Finegan-like travelogue with the poignancy of Plimptons Bogey Man and the vinegar of Doaks Confidential Guide. Traveling solo, this fifty-something Yank has his vigor roundly tested by a quest to play 36 courses. And, along the way -- in a wholly honest account -- the reader gets taken inside the golfers mind when encountering the alluring yet treacherous terrain at one great links after another, along with engaging the natives who call these courses Crackers.

The Last Days of Henry VIII

View: 505

After 35 years in power, Henry VIII was a bloated, hideously obese, black-humoured old man, rarely seen in public. He had striven all his life to ensure the survival of his dynasty by siring legitimate sons, yet his only male heir was eight-year-old Prince Edward. It was increasingly obvious that when Henry died, real power in England would be exercised by a regent. The prospect of that prize spurred the rival court factions into deadly conflict. Robert Hutchinson spent several years in original archival research. He advances a genuinely new theory of Henry's medical history and the cause of his death; he has unearthed some fabulous eyewitness material and papers from death warrants, confessions and even love letters between Katherine Parr and the Lord High Admiral.
