Chasing Excellence: A Story About Building the World's Fittest Athletes Lowest new price: $14.39
Lowest used price: $13.99
List price: $15.99
Author: Ben Bergeron

CrossFit trainer Ben Bergeron has helped build the world's fittest athletes, but he's not like other coaches. He believes that greatness is not for the elite few; that winning is a result, not a goal; and that character, not talent, is what makes a true champion. His powerful philosophy can help anyone excel at all aspects of life.

Using the dramatic competition between the top contenders at the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games® as a background, Ben explores the step-by-step process of achieving excellence and the unique set of positive character traits necessary for leveling up to world-class. The mindset and methodology that have produced some of the greatest athletes in the world's most gruelling sport can work equally well for golfers, lawyers, artists, entrepreneurs--anyone who's willing to commit totally to becoming better than the best.

By Chasing Excellence, you'll discover how extraordinary it's possible for you to be.

Sports Illustrated Houston Astros 2017 World Series Champions Special Commemorative Issue - George Springer Cover: Baseball's Great Prophecy

Sports Illustrated Houston Astros 2017 World Series Champions Special Commemorative Issue - George Springer Cover: Baseball's Great Prophecy Lowest new price: $10.39
List price: $15.99
Author: Editors of Sports Illustrated

Playing on the road while Hurricane Harvey ravaged their homes, the Houston Astros were displaced, disconsolate and helpless, grieving that they could not do more for their city and neighbors. All the Astros could do then was play baseball, to give their fans common cause and a little distraction. Their play became a rallying point, binding them to a community in the best and worst of times. Through 56 seasons Houstonians had waited for a championship. Finding strength in numbers, the Astros took out the three teams with the top payrolls in baseball and won southeast Texas a world title.

Houston earned its championship three years after completing its sixth straight losing season following an elaborate, unprecedented blueprint. The front office wove old-fashioned scouting with modern metrics and some blockbuster dealing. The Astros anticipated backlash for the rebuilding effort and received it. But in coming out victorious in a Fall Classic pitting two 100-plus-win teams for the first time since 1970, there was clearly magic behind their madness.

Sports Illustrated’s Houston Astros World Series championship special commemorative issue details that rebuilding story, from the creation of the team’s largely homegrown roster to the celebration in the locker room moments after the historic victory. The past and present of the club’s history is captured in 96 colorful pages featuring SI’s trademark prose and photographs. Relive the team’s dominant regular season and exciting playoff run. Go deep with probing looks at second baseman Jose Altuve, shortstop Carlos Correa and centerfielder George Springer, the World Series MVP. Get a blast from the past with a march through the team’s memorable history, showcasing the Astrodome, Nolan Ryan and Craig Biggio, and more. Capturing the craziness of the seven-game homer-filled series, this special issue is a fitting salute to a special team and its city. Houston strong, indeed.

Please note that this product is an authorized edition published by Time Inc. and sold by Amazon. This edition is printed using a high quality matte interior paper and printed on demand for immediate fulfillment.

13-9: The story of a game, a season, and a team that never quit

13-9: The story of a game, a season, and a team that never quit Lowest new price: $6.99
List price: $6.99
Author: Chris Peak

In 2007, the Pitt football team upset its hated rival, West Virginia, in the regular-season finale to prevent the Mountaineers from playing in the national championship game. That win - a 13-9 victory for the Panthers - is well-known among Pitt fans, but what often gets forgotten is what happened before that game. Because in the three months leading up to the West Virginia game, Pitt, under head coach Dave Wannstedt, encountered adversity, challenges, and sheer bad luck at every turn. The win over West Virginia was a triumph, not just of one team playing well on one night, but rather a triumph of a team persevering through a difficult season and finding redemption in the greatest way possible. This book is the story of that game, that season, and that team.

A Fly Rod of Your Own (John Gierach's Fly-fishing Library)

A Fly Rod of Your Own (John Gierach's Fly-fishing Library) Lowest new price: $15.49
Lowest used price: $12.08
List price: $25.00
Author: John Gierach
Brand: Gierach John

John Gierach, “the voice of the common angler” (The Wall Street Journal) and member of the Fly Fishing Hall of Fame, brings his sharp sense of humor and keen eye for observation to the fishing life and, for that matter, life in general.

John Gierach is known for his witty, trenchant observations about fly-fishing. In A Fly Rod of Your Own, Gierach once again takes us into his world and scrutinizes the art of fly-fishing. He travels to remote fishing locations where the airport is not much bigger than a garage and a flight might be held up because a passenger is running late. He sings the praises of the skilled pilots who fly to remote fishing lodges in tricky locations and bad weather. He explains why even the most veteran fisherman seems to muff his cast whenever he’s being filmed or photographed. He describes the all-but-impassable roads that fishermen always seem to encounter at the best fishing spots and why fishermen discuss four-wheel drive vehicles almost as passionately and frequently as they discuss fly rods and flies. And while he’s on that subject, he explains why even the most conscientious fisherman always seems to accumulate more rods and flies than he could ever need.

As Gierach says, “fly-fishing is a continuous process that you learn to love for its own sake. Those who fish already get it, and those who don’t couldn’t care less, so don’t waste your breath on someone who doesn’t fish.” From Alaska to the Rockies and across the continent to Maine and the Canadian Maritimes, A Fly Rod of Your Own is an ode to those who fish—and they will get it.
