            300,000 years ago, Homo sapiens had bigger skulls. Cooked food meant our heads shrunk; alongside a growing brain, our airways got narrower. Urbanisation then led us to breathe less deeply and less healthily. And so today more than 90% of us breathe incorrectly. So we might have b...een breathing all our life, but we need to learn how to breathe properly! In 3.3, James Nestor meets cutting-edge scientists at Harvard and experiments on himself in labs at Stanford to see the impact of bad breathing. He revives the lost, and recently scientifically proven, wisdom of swim coaches, Indian mystics, stern-faced Russian cardiologists, Czechoslovakian Olympians and New Jersey choral conductors - the world's foremost 'pulmonauts' - to show how breathing in specific patterns can trigger our bodies to absorb more oxygen, and he explains the benefits for everyone that result, from staying healthy and warding off anxiety to improving focus and losing weight. 3.3 is a fascinating ride through evolution, medicine and physiology - and extreme sports. But mostly it explores you. Structured as a journey with chapters from the mouth and nose through to the lungs and nervous system, it is non-fiction at its breath-taking best.

            Elite athletes play out their lives in the most public of arenas. Everything they do is analysed in real time and then picked apart in the pub afterwards. Why did they miss that penalty? What made him fall at the first jump? That press conference was a bit weird. We can all specu...late, but what's really going on? In Head in the Game we peer into this highly confidential, psychological world. We follow the journeys of ten athletes in their therapy sessions with Gary, from a rugby player arrested for a drunken brawl, through a homesick cricketer on tour, to a snooker player struggling with his feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem. Structured around the emotions we all experience on a daily basis - shame, anger, fear, jealousy, love - chapter-by-chapter the inner traumas that impact their performance are revealed, explained and resolved. Gary Bloom is a sports psychotherapist. He works with footballers, cricketers, rugby players, jockeys, Olympians and many other athletes besides. They might seem like superheroes on the pitch, but in the dressing room they're just like anybody else, subject to the same emotional pressures that affect all of us. You might not be on fifty grand a week or hold a world record, but seeing how sportspeople overcome their demons is a powerful way of tackling your own, because as Gary says, happier players play better - in sport and in life.

            This book is aimed at players and coaches (male & female) of all levels. James Knott and Andrew O'Connor have created a comprehensive and up to date guide to wicket keeping for coaches, players and parents featuring photographs and diagrams along with sixty accessible drills. A h...igh percentage of modern wicket keepers are batsmen who are converted to wicket keeping as a second string to their bow. This is an essential guide for those players as the authors make comparisons between batting principles and wicket keeping principles while also providing guidance for coaches who aren't wicket keepers themselves. With input from a wide range of elite players and coaches, past and present, this is an invaluable guide to developing wicket keeping skills for young and old alike.
