In this highly entertaining and insightful memoir, one of television’s most respected broadcasters interweaves the story of his life and career with lively firsthand tales of some of the most thrilling events and fascinating figures in modern sports. No sportscaster has covered more major sporting events than Al Michaels. Over the course of his forty-plus year career, he has logged more hours on live network television than any other broadcaster in history, and is the only play-by-play commentator to have covered all four major sports championships: the Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Finals, and the Stanley Cup Final. He has also witnessed first-hand some of the most memorable events in modern sports, and in this highly personal and revealing account, brings them vividly to life. Michaels shares never-before-told stories from his early years and his rise to the top, covering some of the greatest moments of the past half century - from the ´´Miracle on Ice” - the historic 1980 Olympic hockey finals - to the earthquake that rocked the 1989 World Series. Some of the greatest names on and off the field are here - Michael Jordan, Bill Walton, Pete Rose, Bill Walsh, Peyton and Eli Manning, Brett Favre, John Madden, Howard Cosell, Cris Collinsworth, and many, many more. Forthright and down-to-earth, Michaels tells the truth as he sees it, giving listeners unique insight into the high drama, the colorful players, and the heroes and occasional villains of an industry that has become a vital part of modern culture. 1.

From the daughter of Muhammad Ali comes an intimate portrait of the heavyweight boxing champion and a final love letter from a daughter to her father. Through audio journals, love letters and cherished memories, Ali´s daughter Hana tells the story of a very typical and yet fully-unique family, the rise and fall of her parent´s marriage and the struggles they faced as a family surrounding Ali´s loss to Larry Holmes in 1981. With the decline of Ali´s voice, his recordings are important to history as they are to his personal legacy. At Home with Muhammad Ali offers a candid look at a man who was trying to find his purpose in the world as he realized he was coming to the end of his lucrative sporting career, all the while trying to balance fatherhood and his worldly and political obligations. Additionally, Hana tells of the everyday adventures that the family experienced around the house-with visitors like Michael Jackson and Clint Eastwood dropping by. And for the first time, Hana´s mother Veronica will share her memories of the 12-year relationship with Muhammad. At Home with Muhammad Ali is a candid and revealing portrait of a legend, a man admired and respected as the greatest sporting icon of our age.
In 1966 England won the World Cup at Wembley. Sir Bobby Charlton, England´s greatest ever player, was there on the pitch. Now, 50 years on, Sir Bobby looks back on the most glorious moment of his life and England´s greatest sporting achievement. In 1966 he takes us through the buildup to the tournament and to the final itself, describing what he saw, what he heard, and what he felt. He explains what it was like to be part of Sir Alf Ramsey´s team and gives us his personal memories of his teammates, the matches, the atmosphere, the emotion of being carried on the wave of a nation´s euphoria and how it felt to go toe-to-toe with some of the foremost footballers to ever play the game. He reveals what it means to be forever defined by one moment - how a life fully lived can come back to one single instance, one day when a man stands side by side with his best friends, united in a single aim, in front of a watching nation. 1.
