He describes here the highlights of the post-war period of motor racing, and you will learn not only about his own successes and failures but a great deal about the technique, the temperament, the inner feelings and the secret hopes and fears of the drivers, men whose lives are devoted to the adventure and danger of high-speed racing." .

He is one of those who know that if life is to be fully appreciated, it must be risked, and, unlike most of that breed, he knows what goes on within himself and he can discuss it freely and openly." .

Waterlogged. The Serious Problem of Overhydration in Endurance Sports

By Noakes, Tim

(Champaign, IL: Human Kinetics, 2012) 9781450424974. 252 x 178 mm; laminated pictorial wrappers; pp. xviii + 429, incl. index; photographs; graphs; tables; diagrams. Near-fine condition. ' "Drink as much as you can, even before you feel thirsty." That's been the mantra to athletes and coaches for the past three decades, and sports drinks have flourished into a billion-dollar industry in the same short time. The problem is that an overhydrated athlete is at a performance disadvantage and at risk of exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH) - a potentially fatal condition. ... In Waterlogged, Noakes sets the record straight, exposing the myths surrounding dehydration and presenting up-to-date hydration guidelines for endurance sport and prolonged training activities. Enough with oversold sports drinks and obsessing over water consumption before, during, and after every workout, he says. Time for the facts - and the prevention of any more needless fatalities.' .

Dustwrapper a bit soiled and ragged, with some loss; earlier owner's inscription to front free endpaper; a little foxing. Good condition. Afrikaans text. ' "Die rampspoedigste toer wat ons nog beleef het." "Ons span was briljant, maar ongelukkig." … So het die menings uiteengeloop ná die Springbokke se 1956-toer na Australië en Nieu-Seeland. Juis omdat Suid-Afrika verloor het en die rugbykroon aan sy tradisionele "vyand" moes afstaan, is dit 'n gedenkwaardige toer. Die All Blacks het ons vasgetrap en in die bladsye van hierdie boek kan u die verhaal van daardie vastrapping lees. Dirk Kamfer het die toer meegemaak as spesiale verteenwoordiger van Die Huisgenoot en almal wat sy gewilde artikels in daardie blad gelees het, sal weet wat om van dié boek te verwag.' .

South African Cricket Annual 1952 - 53 (Volume 2)

By Chettle, Geoffrey A. (editor and compiler)

Wrappers a bit scuffed and slightly creased; backstrip slightly worn at head; earlier owner's name signed on first page; some foxing to edges and outermost leaves. 'Any doubts concerning the need for a publication of this type have long since been dispelled by the world-wide demand for the 1951-52 issue. Literally hundreds of letters from enthusiasts throughout the Union and the Rhodesias bore eloquent testimony of the public desire for an annual record of our cricket activities. That in itself was a source of great encouragement, but what was really amazing was the reception given to the "baby" of all Annuals by readers overseas. ... South African cricket, thanks to the wonderful efforts of Cheetham and his "Boys", has been lifted out of the post-war doldrums and, having shared the spoils with the Might of Australia, has attained a standard hitherto unequalled in our association with the game.' The five cricketers of the year are Russell Endean, Jackie McGlew, Hugh Tayfield, John Waddington, and Jack Cheetham. .

I Declare

By Cheetham, Jack

Dustwrapper torn and edgeworn, with loss; earlier owner's name signed on front free endpaper; tape marks to endpapers; some moderate foxing and browning. Good. "The story of the 1955 South African Cricket Tour of England reads almost like a fairy tale. Two Tests down and three to go; it seemed for all the world that the Series was safely in the hands of the England Team. How the South African side levelled the Tests, and almost snatched a victory in the deciding match, is graphically told in this book. No one knows the background of this Tour better than the author, who has given more than just an insight into the matches played. The calls made upon the tourists off the field, travel incidents and all the inside happenings of their five-month tour, have been recounted in a forthright manner." .
