While fans continue to debate the relative merits of their favorite drivers, ESPN.com's premier motor sports writer Terry Blount now brings some needed clarity and perspective to America's biggest spectator sport, rating drivers, teams, cars, and tracks, and while bluntly letting readers know which are overrated and which are underrated in a new book that's bound to further the debate and stir up more controversy. Did the reputation match the results? Was the performance better than the perception? and how much of a factor was the car? are all questions asked and discussed in this investigation. Along with rating drivers, The Blount Report also rates a vast array of the NASCAR world from speedways to races and rules to records.

Super Bowl XLII was one of the most amazing moments in New York Giants history. From the final drive, to “the catch,” to beating the then undefeated New England Patriots and giving them an 18-1 record; it was an incredible day for all Giants players and fans…especially Eli Manning.That was only the beginning.With the rematch in Super Bowl XLVI, the New York Giants stormed into Indianapolis, facing the New England Patriots again in the Super Bowl, and just like the first meeting, they once again came out victorious. Eli Manning once again came out as the Super Bowl MVP, which he highlighted with the incredible pass to Mario Manningham in the final minutes of the game. Eli Manning: The Making of a Quarterback is written by longtime Daily News writer, Ralph Vacchiano, and tells the story of the “ELIte” quarterback, with amazing details of his first Super Bowl victory and updated through his most recent win in 2012. You will follow Eli from the bold draft-day trade that brought him to New York, through his dramatic ups and downs on and off the field, his first training camp, and his last minute heroics in Super Bowl XLII, to his courageous come-from-behind victory in Super Bowl XLVI.Complete with exclusive interviews with NFL stars, coaches, and executives and a foreword by former Giants General Manager Ernie Accorsi, Vacchiano uses his unfettered access to the World Champion Giants to present a true behind-the-scenes look at the quarterback and team that defied the odds twice and proved themselves to be the best of the best.

ESPN's beloved Sports Guy replays the years leading up to the Boston Red Sox historic championship season and says goodbye to a lifetime of suffering. At least for now. "The Red Sox won the World Series." To Citizen No. 1 of Red Sox Nation, those seven words meant "No more 1918 chants. No more smug glances from Yankee fans. No more worrying about living an entire life -- that's 80 years, followed by death without seeing the Red Sox win a Series." But once he was able to type those life-changing words, Bill Simmons decided to look back at his Sports Guy columns for the last five years to find out how the miracle came to pass. And that's where the trouble began. Why didnt he see it coming? Why didn't it happen sooner? What was the key deal, the lucky move, the funny bounce, the sign from above that he failed to spot? Pretty soon, The Sports Guy was second-guessing himself, rewriting history, sniping at his own past predictions, pounding the table -- that's what sports guys do, right And doing so, he let himself get sidetracked by the suffering of the Boston Bruins, frustrated by the false promise of the Celtics -- and driven into a state of ecstasy by the dynastic New England Patriots. The result is Now I Can Die in Peace, a hilarious and fresh new look at some of the best sportswriting in America, with sharp critical commentary (and fresh insights) from the guy who wrote it in the first place.

Ernie Pyle’s human and unforgettable picture of England under the Blitzkrieg—a deeply moving story of courage and faith. Ernie Pyle in England, first published in 1941, is the account of the journalist’s stay in England, Scotland and Wales during the height of the German bombing blitz on London and other cities of the United Kingdom. Pyle, one of the most famous correspondents of the Second World War, had an easy-going, folksy-style of writing, making the book an enjoyable yet informative read about the conditions he encountered. His descriptions of the effects of the bombing, nights spent in air raid shelters, food- and gas-rationing, and daily life in London remain classic pieces of war-time reporting.

High school students, two-year college students, and university students all need to know how to write a well-reasoned, coherent research paper—and for decades Kate Turabian’s Student’s Guide to Writing College Papers has helped them to develop this critical skill. In the new fourth edition of Turabian’s popular guide, the team behind Chicago’s widely respected The Craft of Research has reconceived and renewed this classic for today’s generation. Designed for less advanced writers than Turabian’s Manual of Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Seventh Edition, Gregory G. Colomb and Joseph M. Williams here introduce students to the art of defining a topic, doing high-quality research with limited resources, and writing an engaging and solid college paper. The Student’s Guide is organized into three sections that lead students through the process of developing and revising a paper. Part 1, "Writing Your Paper," guides students through the research process with discussions of choosing and developing a topic, validating sources, planning arguments, writing drafts, avoiding plagiarism, and presenting evidence in tables and figures. Part 2, "Citing Sources," begins with a succinct introduction to why citation is important and includes sections on the three major styles students might encounter in their work—Chicago, MLA, and APA—all with full coverage of electronic source citation. Part 3, "Style," covers all matters of style important to writers of college papers, from punctuation to spelling to presenting titles, names, and numbers. With the authority and clarity long associated with the name Turabian, the fourth edition of Student’s Guide to Writing College Papers is both a solid introduction to the research process and a convenient handbook to the best practices of writing college papers. Classroom tested and filled with relevant examples and tips, this is a reference that students, and their teachers, will turn to again and again.

From the remarkable Ha Jin, winner of the National Book Award for his celebrated novel Waiting, a collection of comical and deeply moving tales of contemporary China that are as warm and human as they are surprising, disturbing, and delightful. In the title story, the head of security at a factory is shocked, first when the hansomest worker on the floor proposes marriage to his homely adopted daughter, and again when his new son-in-law is arrested for the "crime" of homosexuality. In "After Cowboy Chicken Came to Town," the workers at an American-style fast food franchise receive a hilarious crash course in marketing, deep frying, and that frustrating capitalist dictum, "the customer is always right."Ha Jin has triumphed again with his unforgettable storytelling in The Bridegroom. From the Trade Paperback edition.
