Fighting For Different Reason's


'ICEMAN: My Fighting Life' by Chuck Liddell. Chuck is not only one of the greatest fighters ever to step into the octagon, he is down to earth, a good father, and a loyal friend to those who know, work and train with him. One of his most intriguing fights he talks about in detail that I was amazed by his courage and toughness was the Vale Tudo Championships in Brazil. Chuck's only second career fight and he beats a heavily favored veteran fighter in his own back yard. I find myself thinking of Chuck's life and the decisions he made and it provides a calming influence to me as I now understand that life can only beat you up if you let it. I enjoyed this eBook, and recommend it to any new fan of the mixed martial arts sport.

'How Soccer Explains the World' by Franklin Foer. Each of the chapters tells a different story about soccer within a different area of the world. Our sports have Holly Hobby characters by comparison. The rivalry between the two Glasgow teams, the Protestant Rangers and the Catholic Celtic, is unlike anything that we have in this nation. This is one of the most perceptive descriptions of globalization's impacts, both positive and negative, that I have read. The book is full of animated reporting, strong characters and insightful analysis. If you are a soccer enthusiast you will absolutely love this book, but even if you don't understand the first thing about this game, the book will offer an entertaining reading material that will probably bring you closer to game and could help you understand your friends' and neighbors' passion around the world.

Iceman: My Fighting Life eBook edition by Liddell, Chuck
"When I walk out of the tunnel, I can see the lights, hear the music, feel the crowd, but it all begins to close off as I near the cage. By that point I'm thinking, I've been training hard, it's time to focus....Every man is born with a fight-or-flight instinct, and mine is to fight. It always has been."

Keefer's trilogy is the new 21st century novel

Keefer's brilliant wit and intellect infuse this massive masterpiece so that you get an unusual perspective on twentieth century media megalomania, and what 9/11 and the War on Terror did to clash and un-clash civilizations. The narrative style is so unique she should have won the Nobel Prize!

Poker, Horses, It's All A Gamble


'Confessions of a Video Poker Winner' by Greg Perry. When I heard that this book's writer mocked the French, I KNEW it had to be a great book! I wasn't disappointed!! Finally, a gambling writer that isn't stoic, who has some humor, but also adds PRACTICAL ADVICE for us lonely Video Poker players! I never knew how to take all the different casino comp offers and modify my playing strategies and locations based on those different comps. Although I'll probably never play in Kansas City, for example, his Kansas City chapter gave me GREAT INSIGHT into how to adjust to the various rules of whatever casinos I DO play at. Very readable, a LOT of funny material, all related to Video Poker (except for a slight detour in one chapter where he discusses the evening he and his wife gambled with William Shatner.)

'On The Fence' by Janet Barrett. This book starts with the one's child saying, "Mom, I want to ride a horse! Overwhelmed by fears of what you do not know and the expense of an activity you are afraid your child will give up too quickly (or not quickly enough), this book addresses all the questions parents face as they face them. Very easy to read and nicely laid out. I would recommend it highly to any parent who hears those words for the first time: "Mom, I want to ride a horse!"
