We’ve grown so used to images of refugees on the evening news that we’re increasingly immune to their plight. Yet refugees who, having escaped the wretchedness of their homes are often viewed with suspicion or barely-concealed dislike, usually because of their colour, religion, or even manner of dress. One Goal is a book about hope: be it sporting, religious, cultural or political. Read it, because it might make you look at those television images of refugees a little differently. (read review)

While at Naples (1984-91), Maradona’s hedonistic lifestyle was only sustainable provided he produced the goods on the football pitch. For several years, he did, but as the press release accompanying this book reminds us, the Argentine’s story is reminiscent of “Scarface in football boots”. No wonder John Ludden’s text provided the basis for the film of Maradona’s life: Once Upon A Time In Naples. (read review)

Underdog-with-a-dream Gregory Howe, a thirty-something English teacher working in north London, realised that if he didn’t do something about his ambition to play on the much-vaunted ATP Tour, he faced a career promising a succession of middle management roles and, presumably, the prospect of telling his grandchildren “I coulda been a contender…” (read review)

Iron Ambition Lessons I’ve Learned from the Man Who made Me a Champion By Mike Tyson with Larry Sloman

List Price: £18.99
Our Price: £15.99
You Save: £3 (15%)

Reviewing Undisputed Truth (Mike Tyson’s autobiography) when it was first published, we called it “an A-list sporting tome”, a description Iron Ambition also commands. The current title has the added benefit of authenticity, for ghost writer Larry Sloman has successfully captured Tyson’s spoken delivery, punctuated as it is with a machine-gun-like attack of expletives.

You Save: £6.63 (33%)

Thankfully, this is not a book comprising a rather subjective list of the 50 best finals that Nick Collins has witnessed over the past 40 years. Instead, it’s a pacey, well-informed, behind-the-scenes journey which every budding sports reporter should read. (read review)

The Range Bucket List: The Golf Adventure of a Lifetime By James Dodson

Harbouring sporting ambitions when you’re a 13-year-old boy or girl is entirely natural; making a note of them in writing equally normal. Folding this list and putting it away before forgetting about your once vitally important sporting objectives altogether is just as common. Such is the background to James Dodson’s wonderfully engaging book, The Range Bucket List, part memoir, part sporting observation, part travelogue and perhaps most importantly, partly a desire to satisfy, wherever possible, those ambitions he noted fifty years earlier.

According to author Paul Fournel, “no man was ever better suited than [Anquetil] to ride a bike” and in this eclectic collection of poetic vignettes, stories and short anecdotes, there is a deep sense of oneness between man and machine; competing on it was part of Anquetil’s soul. If you’re off to the Vendée, take and read this book – it’ll put you in the mood for the start of the Tour on 7th July. (read review)
