Published in time for the 2014 World Cup, the ultimate collection of soccer’s greatest lore and legends, illustrated with 100 black-and-white photos, by two of the world’s most knowledgeable soccer journalists. Who Invented the Bicycle Kick? is a rollicking ride through soccer history that will surprise and delight fans old and new. Veteran soccer journalists Uli Hesse and editor Paul Simpson bring together the sublime feats, legendary personalities, neglected heroes, bizarre twists of fate, and fascinating mysteries that have shaped the world’s most popular game, including: Who invented the bicycle kick? Why does a football match last 90 minutes? Who scored the fastest goal ever? Which match produced the largest number of red cards? Why are seven dead cats buried under a stadium in Argentina? Which country was banned from the World Cup after refusing to play in shoes? Providing answers to more than 100 questions, Hesse and Simpson explore the beautiful game as never before, shedding new light on legends such as Pele, Maradona, Messi, Beckham, Ronaldo, and Rooney, and uncovering lost histories of international clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea, Aston Villa, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and more. Challenging conventional wisdom, and destroying a few urban myths, Who Invented the Bicycle Kick? is a must for every soccer lover.

Dictionary of Sports and Games Terminology Book Review:

The specialized jargon of some sports can be quite esoteric. Non-Americans, for example, are likely puzzled by baseball terms such as bunt, cut-off man, and safety squeeze, while the non–British may pause over cricket’s Chinaman, doosra, golden duck, off-break, popping crease, and yorker. This new dictionary gives the definitions of more than 8,000 terms used in sports and games from around the world, including mainstream sports like basketball and billiards alongside the more obscure netball and snooker. Entries cover sports equipment, strategies, venues, qualifying categories, awards, and administrative bodies, while a comprehensive system of cross-references offers assistance and clarification when needed. An appendix lists standard abbreviations of sports ruling bodies and administrative organizations.

Advertising and Consumption Book Review:

This book argues for the study of consumption and its relationship with media images, particularly advertising, from a cultural perspective. Focused on Brazil, it draws on decades of research by the author and engages with theory and concepts from a range of classic anthropological works. The chapters examine how advertising professionals view their craft, the resistance to capitalism amongst native Brazilians, images of women and their bodies in magazines, and the case of the first soccer player to become a national media celebrity. Rocha supports the study of consumption as a classification system that materializes culture and creates relations between people and goods. The book presents advertising as a mode of magical thinking that mediates the passage from the machine-driven sphere of production to the humanized sphere of consumption, converting meaningless impersonal things into goods that have name, origin, identity and purpose. It will be of interest to anthropologists, sociologists and others working on advertising, marketing, communications, and consumer research.

Dive in and enjoy the DroidMesh Trilogy boxed set! Book 1: All work and no play makes an android a dull toy. The remnants of human civilization create their own utopia on an alien planet. A brilliant robotic scientist breaks the rules in an attempt to make his impaired son whole. Meshing android and human minds is considered impossible, a societal taboo, and illegal. Can the sorrow of a father, the challenge of a feat never accomplished, and the promise of normalcy for a son who has never known it motivate a man beyond his ethical boundaries? What happens when it all goes wrong? Book 2: The essence of a robotic scientist's late wife now exists in one of his sentient creations. A firmware flaw has surfaced in an overly ambitious project to mesh android and human brains. The android population on Novae Terrae now have human emotions—and human flaws. Robotics scientist Harley Harris wants a peaceful coexistence between both groups, who share a planet that humans have escaped to during the apocalypse on Earth. The androids, led by a gynoid who schemes for Harley's heart, have their own plans. Will Harley Harris choose the android over his human love interest? Is it really love that she's after? Book 3: Hell hath no fury as an android spurned. The remnants of humanity and newly awakened, sentient androids of Novae Terrae have come to an uneasy truce. Robotics scientist Harley Harris has sorted out his relationship issues, leaving behind an angry former partner. Will the peace hold after the androids come to the artificial intelligence-driven conclusion that humans are inferior and unnecessary? Will humanity survive?
