WINNER OF THE PEN/ESPN AWARD FOR LITERARY SPORTS WRITING. THE TIMES SPORTS BOOK AWARDS BIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR.

Ronnie
€ 9.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ronnie is snooker´s most written and talked about player, and its greatest showman. His supreme talent and style have made him the People´s Champion and, as one commentator put it, ´the question is not how much does Ronnie O´Sullivan need snooker, but how much does snooker need Ronnie O´Sullivan?´ At 15, Ronnie became the youngest player to compile a recognised maximum break during the English Amateur Championships. He turned professional in 1992 and won 38 successive matches that year alone. In 1993, at just 17, he became the youngest winner of a world ranking tournament when he defeated Stephen Hendry to win the UK Championships. In 1997 he recorded the fastest 147 break in history - in just 5 minutes and 20 seconds - and has gone on to better that three times. In 2001 he confirmed his legendary status by winning the Embassy World Title. But Ronnie´s autobiography will reveal more just than just the sporting side of the man the BBC speculates ´could become the world´s greatest ever´; it will also be a full and candid account of an extraordinary life. It will tell of the infant who was introduced to legendary snooker clubs at an impossibly early age, of the boy who was taking on and defeating all comers at 12 and frightening off the bookies in the process, of the teenager whose life was decimated when his father and mentor was sent to prison for life; of the man dubbed the ´genius´ of the modern game who regularly threatens to quit the sport to pursue other interests at the grand old age of 28.

A Family for the Holidays (eBook, ePUB)
€ 3.49 *

Kelly Singer wants a family. Her mother, Kelly´s only surviving relative, has early onset Alzheimer´s Disease, and lives in an assisted living facility in Naples, Florida. Most of the time she doesn´t recognize Kelly, and watching her mother slip further and further away not only breaks Kelly´s heart but increases her sense of isolation. She and Sky Ziegfeld, both hired by the new Minor League baseball team on Mimosa Key, now share a condo on that lovely tropical island off the west coast of Florida. They are fast becoming best friends and Kelly envies Sky her large family. When they moved in together, two of Sky´s five brothers drove down from Philadelphia with Sky´s belongings. That´s when the trouble began. Over the summer, Mike and Jed visited frequently to watch the Bucks play. Mike, tall, handsome, and sporting a body honed at the fitness center he owns, captured Kelly´s attention. She´d like to step up their relationship, but Mike, badly burned by his first love, has kept her firmly in the friend category. Sky and Kelly urge him to consider Mimosa Key for his next fitness center, and when he visits to check out properties for it, his hard-won resistance to Kelly crumbles. After a week of intimacy during which he carefully avoids any mention of a continuing relationship, Mike flies back to Philly leaving Kelly to wonder if there is any chance for a future together. An invitation from Sky´s mother to spend Thanksgiving in Philadelphia causes Kelly much anguish. The holiday spent with Sky´s family sounds tempting, but she doesn´t want to abandon her mother, nor is she ready to face Mike again. But, with a plan hatched by Sky´s brothers that allows Kelly to visit her mother and still join them for Thanksgiving dinner, Sky convinces Kelly to accept. Kelly loves the warm welcome she receives from the Ziegfelds -especially from Mike. He gives her a tour of his fitness center, and she joins Sky and her dad in selecting the family´s Christmas tree. It all seems perfect until disaster strikes. Mike´s old flame pays a surprise visit, and Kelly´s mother escapes the grounds of Harbor House. In her frantic scramble to return to Florida go join in the search, she may wind up leaving Mike behind—along with her heart.
