Michael Hutchinson’s immersion into what was then a very restricted world of cycling came when his girlfriend’s father lent him a racing bike and suggested he might fancy a spin. “Within about ten miles,” says Hutchinson, “I felt ready to devote the rest of my life to riding bikes,” unequivocal evidence of love at first sight.

Publisher: Yellow Jersey Press

List Price: £14.99
Our Price: £12.03
You Save: £2.96 (19%)

Released his week in paperback, Klopp: Bring the Noise could be described as a fascinating tale of a work in progress. However, one wonders whether the Liverpool manager’s all-out attacking strategies, notwithstanding the recent acquisition of Virgil van Dijk, will yield success for Liverpool. Until they recruit a reliable goalkeeper, Liverpool will continue to leak 10-12 points a season, despite their play being every bit as exciting as that of Manchester City. (read review)

An early contender for sports book of the year, The Boy on the Shed is not only a great story of a man who came tantalisingly close to making it as a top-flight footballer (and went on to achieve so much else besides), but is simultaneously engaging, well-paced and, like the very best stories, well written.

The Berlin Olympics are generally perceived to be the most overtly nationalistic modern Games , although according to author Oliver Hilmes, in a disappointingly disjointed narrative, this wasn’t necessarily the case. Though the authorities had removed hoardings advertising the anti-Jewish newspaper Der Sturmer and another paper had urged Germans not to downplay “foreign triumphs” during the Games, clues to their future intentions were evident.
