Jimmy Connors took the tennis world by storm like no player in the history of the game. A shaggy-haired working-class kid from the wrong side of the tracks, he was prepared to battle for every point, to shout and scream until he was heard, and he didn't care whom he upset in doing so. He was brash, he was a brat. He was a crowd-pleaser, a revolutionary. And he won more tournaments - an astonishing 109 - than any other man in history, including eight Grand Slam singles titles. Only now is Connors ready to set the record straight on what really happened on and off the court. The rivalry with John McEnroe, that frequently threatened to turn violent, with Bjorn Borg, and Ivan Lendl. His romance with Chris Evert, which made them the sweethearts of the sport. The escapades with his partner in crime, Ilie Nastase. The deep roots of the fierce determination that made him the best player on the planet. This is no genteel memoir of a pillar of the tennis establishment. Unflinching, hard-hitting, humorous and passionate, this is the story of a legend - the one and only Jimmy Connors.

Five Trophies and a Funeral: The Building and Rebuilding of Durham County Cricket Club is the story of how English cricket's youngest first-class county quickly became the country's top team, before overstretching themselves financially to the brink of extinction. When Durham joined the professional game in 1992 they aspired to be a major on-field force and a home to top international cricket. The high demands put on them as a condition of entry, together with their own lofty ambitions, pushed the club to five major trophies in seven seasons while providing England with top-quality players reared in the North East. But striving for ever more at a time of economic downturn led them to live beyond their means, and they were heavily punished for overspending that the authorities partly encouraged. Now they are looking to restore past glories under the chairmanship of Sir Ian Botham. Part fairy tale, part cautionary story, Five Trophies explains how Durham arrived where they are, and where they aim to go next.

Discover the life of a footballing legend . . . 'An absolute hero of mine, and countless others. One of the greatest goalkeepers of all time' Gary Lineker 'One of the best England has ever had' Sir Bobby Charlton __________ For 10 years Gordon Banks was not only England's Number One, but the best keeper in the world - perhaps the best there's ever been. He helped lead England to legendary World Cup victory, and his iconic save from Pele will go down in history as one of the greatest ever made. But with the countless triumphs there also came tragedy; just months after being named footballer of the year his career was abruptly cut short when a car accident left him blind in one eye. This is more than just a football story: it's the story of a man who represents all that was admirable about the game in a golden era. A story of a genuine English hero and a stirring, insider account of the England team's finest years. 'An all-time great' Gareth Southgate 'He was a true legend of the game' Harry Redknapp
