In June 1986 Diego Maradona, considered by many to be the greatest footballer of all time, proudly hoisted the '86 Mexico World Championship Cup in his hands. Now thirty years on from that magical game, and after a life in sports marked by controversy, Maradona tells, for the first time, the untold stories behind that one-of-a-kind World Cup. Mexico '86 was the pinnacle of Maradona's career, and in this book he will reveal all about every game, what happened afterwards in the locker room, the months leading up to the World Cup, when the team had to go to Mexico City a month early to avoid the overthrowing of the technical director by the Argentine president, Alfonsin, the mystery behind 'El Gran Capitan' Passarella ('78 World Cup Champion), the strategies and tactics that revolutionised the game, training in a country that was recovering from an earthquake, the public's hostility, the jerseys they went out to buy in Mexico City, the meeting in Colombia where the team really came together, his relationship to drugs: the clean World Cup, and the best goal in football history. Mexico '86 is Maradona's World Cup and Maradona is who he is because of that World Cup. Explosive, gritty and unapologetic, Touched by God will tell the inside story of one of the greatest football victories of all time.

When Siya Kolisi leads the Springboks out onto the field at the Rugby World Cup in September 2019, it will be the crowning glory of an incredible journey that began on the impoverished streets of Zwide, a township outside Port Elizabeth. As the first black South African to captain a Springbok rugby team, Kolisi's remarkable story is unique and deserves to be heard. His mother was a teenager when he
was born. She left him in the care of his grandmother who brought him up until she died (in his arms) when Siya was ten. He found love and acceptance playing junior rugby with the African Bombers club until his talent was spotted by the prestigious Grey High School who offered Siya a full scholarship that changed his life.

If, as a Springbok rugby fan, you have always wondered what goes on behind the scenes - in the dressing room, at practice, in team talks and on tour - this book will provide the answer to those questions, and many, many more. Renowned rugby scribe Gavin Rich has interviewed a wide cross-section of Springboks from the post-isolation era and asked them a variety of questions, including pertinent ones about politics, the exodus of players overseas and about life after rugby.

In Our Blood Is Green, more than 40 Springbok rugby players talk about their careers: how they made it to the top of their profession, what it was like to face the pressures of playing for South Africa's national team, how they dealt with the media, the officials, and yes, the coaches who didn't know what they were doing! They answer questions like: is there still a divide between English- and Afrikaans-speaking players, does the 'quota' system work, is Bok rugby all about playing for the jersey or is it, as former All Black coach Graham Henry once said, nationalism that drives the South African team? And what is it like to play against the British & Irish Lions, or to face the haka, or sing our national anthem before an international Test …?

By allowing the players to tell their own stories in their own words, Rich offers readers a comprehensive view of the players' personal experiences, as well as their thoughts on the game today and the way forward for rugby in this country. Our Blood Is Green is a compelling read for rugby fans of all ages.

The origins of the game - sometimes true, sometimes fanciful - are explored as are some of its rituals like the haka. There are amusing tales including that of the four Tibetan boys sent by the Dalai Lama to learn the game at Rugby School and an account of New Zealand scrum-half Chris Laidlaw's hostile reception at a village fête in Wales. Along with barely believable stories about the game's hardest men, including the French coach Jean 'le Sultan' Sébédio, who used to conduct training sessions wearing a sombrero and wielding a long whip, and 'Red' Conway who had his finger amputated rather than miss a game for South Africa.

In 2008, a few days after being selected to coach the Indian cricket team, Australian cricketer Gary Kirsten and South African 'mental conditioning' coach Paddy Upton set themselves the goal of winning the World Cup in 2011 and making Team India the number one Test team in the world. Three years and countless sessions of innovative and creative coaching later, the team achieved these goals—and more.
Paddy's journey began much earlier, in his native Cape Town, and included working with the South African team as the cricket world's first fitness trainer. He transitioned to mental coaching in professional sport, and in 2012 became head coach of the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League. Since then, he has coached five teams in thirteen seasons across three of the world's premier T20 leagues.

The Barefoot Coach is packed with Paddy's out-of-the-box thinking and illuminating anecdotes on winning, preparation and failure. Behind-the-field snapshots of candour and courage, fascinating breakaways into endurance sport and surfing expand the horizon of learning and experience. Inspiring and unusual in its approach to coaching, this is a must read for everyone who wishes to enhance their performance, and their lives.

It is axiomatic that the goal of any fisherman is to catch fish! However, this is not always as easy as simply casting a line or throwing a net into the water.

Some fish are wily, and know how to avoid the hooks, lures or bait that has been set for them. As a species, bass regularly elude even the most canny angler. Author Gareth Coombs has experienced the frustration and the pleasure of trying to catch this often-aggressive, predatory sportfish. Bass Fishing in South Africa is his response to many years of patiently studying currents, wind, temperature and the underwater landscape of the lakes, dams and rivers where he fishes for bass. His analysis of the underwater environment and water characteristics, as well as the behaviour traits, sensory capabilities and nesting habits of largemouth black bass, allows him to present a tackle-box's worth of tricks and tools for the keen bass fisherman.

Knowing how a fish might behave at certain times of the year, or under certain weather conditions, improves the angler's chance of making a catch. As a scientist who is mindful of the importance of conservation, Gareth also covers how to handle a captured fish and return it safely to the water.

Former GM executive and current advisor to the Google Self-Driving Car project Lawrence Burns offers a sweeping history of the race to make the driverless car a reality. In the past decade, Silicon Valley companies like Google, Tesla and Uber have positioned themselves to revolutionize the way we move around by developing driverless vehicles while traditional auto companies like General Motors, Ford, and Daimler have been fighting back by partnering by with new tech start- ups. It's not a question of whether the self-driving car will disrupt the automobile industry; it's a question of when, how, and who will win the race. With the first driverless car likely to hit markets in less than five years, Burns also looks toward the future and explains how this new technology will impact our lives.

After exploring more than twenty other African nations using only public transport, Sihle Khumalo this time roams within the borders of his own country. The familiarity of his own car is a luxury, but what he finds on his journey through South Africa ranges from the puzzling to the downright bizarre.
Voyaging from the northernmost part of South Africa right to the south, the author noses his car down freeways and back roads into small towns, townships, and villages, some of which you'll have trouble finding on a map.

But this is no clichéd description of beautiful landscapes and blue skies. Khumalo is out to investigate the state of the nation, from its highest successes to its most depressing failures. Whether or not he's baffled, surprised, or sometimes plain angry, Sihle Khumalo will always find warmth in his fellow South Africans: security guards, religious visionaries, drunks, political activists and the many other colourful personalities that come alive in his riveting account.

The All Blacks are the greatest sports team on the planet. With a better winning record than any other sports team in history, they stand head and shoulders above their nearest rugby rivals, and go to the 2019 World Cup as back-to-back World Champions. How did a country of just 4.8 million people conquer the world? Peter Bills, who has reported on international rugby for more than 40 years, was given exclusive access to all the key figures in New Zealand rugby as he set out to understand the secrets behind the All Blacks success. From Steve Hansen to Beauden Barrett, Richie McCaw to the late Sir Colin Meads, Peter Bills talked at length with over 90 people, both in New Zealand and around the world, with intimate knowledge of what makes the All Blacks tick. This is a story of the first settlers, and the 'Originals' who forged the All Blacks legacy, right through to modern times. It draws heavily on the contributions made by all New Zealanders: players, coaches, officials, supporters and those who have worn the most recognized jersey in the world. Intrinsically, The Jersey goes to the heart of the All Blacks success. It is also an epic story of not just a rugby team but a nation, whose identities are inextricably linked. Additionally, it debates a question, terrifying for any of their opponents. Could the All Blacks get even better?
