Clear for Action!: Keep Your Powder Dry! : Corr...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Corrie’s life is threatened by the evil Master-at-Arms Mr. Sly. Corrie meets the escaped slave Billy Brown, the captain of the Maintop, and wonders if Billy, too, is a woman in disguise. All the while, she feels the ambiance of a warship in the time of Nelson: scrubbing the deck, keeping watches, learning to speak the language, and to find her way from the cat lashings to the bilge hole. Barton is careful about the language of the time and faultless in his description of naval customs and traditions. As you listen to the tale, you have to wonder why the historical fact that women served in large numbers under Nelson has been hidden from the public for so long. Here at last is a true-to-life account that helps to set the record straight. England and France have declared war, and Corrie Harriman joins in on the action. Corrie’s War is a 16-part naval adventure series where Corrie joins the Royal Navy and must combat deadly enemies, navigate through hazardous storms, and even endure cruelty by the hands of her own crew. No one suspects that Corrie is actually a young woman - and she plans to keep it that way.  1. Language: English. Narrator: Heidi Gregory.

Moneyball
22,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Moneyball is a quest for the secret of success in baseball. Following the low-budget Oakland Athletics, their larger-than-life general manger, Billy Beane, and the strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts, Michael Lewis has written not only "the single most influential baseball book ever" (Rob Neyer, Slate) but also what "may be the best book ever written on business" (Weekly Standard). I wrote this book because I fell in love with a story. The story concerned a small group of undervalued professional baseball players and executives, many of whom had been rejected as unfit for the big leagues, who had turned themselves into one of the most successful franchises in Major League Baseball. But the idea for the book came well before I had good reason to write it-before I had a story to fall in love with. It began, really, with an innocent question: how did one of the poorest teams in baseball, the Oakland Athletics, win so many games? With these words Michael Lewis launches us into the funniest, smartest, and most contrarian book since, well, since Liar's Poker. Moneyball is a quest for something as elusive as the Holy Grail, something that money apparently can't buy: the secret of success in baseball. The logical places to look would be the front offices of major league teams, and the dugouts, perhaps even in the minds of the players themselves. Lewis mines all these possibilities-his intimate and original portraits of big league ballplayers are alone worth the price of admission-but the real jackpot is a cache of numbers-numbers!-collected over the years by a strange brotherhood of amateur baseball enthusiasts: software engineers, statisticians, Wall Street analysts, lawyers and physics professors. What these geek numbers show-no, prove-is that the traditional yardsticks of success for players and teams are fatally flawed. Even the box score misleads us by ignoring the crucial importance of the humble base-on-balls. This information has been around for years, and nobody inside Major League Baseball paid it any mind. And then came Billy Beane, General Manager of the Oakland Athletics. Billy paid attention to those numbers -with the second lowest payroll in baseball at his disposal he had to-and this book records his astonishing experiment in finding and fielding a team that nobody else wanted. Moneyball is a roller coaster ride: before the 2002 season opens, Oakland must relinquish its three most prominent (and expensive) players, is written off by just about everyone, and then comes roaring back to challenge the American League record for consecutive wins. In a narrative full of fabulous characters and brilliant excursions into the unexpected, Michael Lewis shows us how and why the new baseball knowledge works. He also sets up a sly and hilarious morality tale: Big Money, like Goliath, is always supposed to win... how can we not cheer for David?

Unhurried Vision
41,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Poetry. Underneath the art of poetry exists the tradition of the journal -- the attempt to capture and reveal the world as it passes by. Observations, reflections, and ideas accumulate to form connections and reveal process, content and story. UNHURRIED VISION is a record of the year 1999, and continues Michael Rothenberg's experiment with the journal. This is the year Philip Whalen became terminally ill and Rothenberg began taking care of him, pulled together Whalen's archives and library and edited his book of selected poems, Overtime. 'Rothenberg's raw footage is disarming; sly, self-effacing, proclaiming, doubting, affirming. You can read it in one sitting, say blurbologists, but it takes at least a lifetime. & then what?'--David Meltzer.

No One Writes Back
19,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Communication-or the lack thereof-is the subject of this sly update of the picaresque. No One Writes Back is the story of a young man who leaves home with only his blind dog, an MP3 player, and a book, traveling aimlessly for three years, from motel to motel, meeting people on the road. Rather than learn the names of his fellow travelers-or invent nicknames for them-he assigns them numbers. There's 239, for example, who once dreamed of being a poet, but who now only reads her poems to a friend in a coma; there's 109, who rides trains endlessly because of a broken heart; and 32, who's already decided to commit suicide. The narrator writes letters to these men and women in the hope that he can console them in their various miseries, as well as keep a record of his own experiences: 'A letter is like a journal entry for me, except that it gets sent to other people.' No one writes back, of course, but that doesn't mean that there isn't some hope that one of them will, someday . . .
