How to win the Premier League: On a Shoestring

A few wealthy clubs dominate the English Premier League and almost lockout every other club from the top slots. But what if your mid-to-low level club was to power it’s way to the top, without the help of untold riches. What if less-wealthy clubs made a habit of overcoming their disadvantages and regularly winning the league. You might think this is almost impossible. And you might be right unless you and many others read this book. This book outlines several strategies which could help propel your club to the top. Also rule changes which would make it more difficult to ‘buy’ the league, therefore making it fairer and tilting it back towards the majority. We might then have frequent ‘Leicester City’ type of events and a completely unpredictable top five every year. The book is a short read; you could finish it in a couple of hours. To reduce the book buyer feeling short-changed, I have included the first chapter of my forthcoming (in late 2018) book called “Ministry of AfterDeath” as bonus material. - Ash Nehmet

Bill Veeck's Crosstown Classic (Chicago Shorts)

Baseball Hall of Famer Bill Veeck (1914–86) was an inspired team builder, a consummate showman, and one of the greatest baseball men ever involved in the game. Bill Veeck’s Crosstown Classic, drawn from his uproarious autobiography (cowritten with the talented sportswriter Ed Linn), is an unforgettable trip packed with anecdotes and insight about the history of baseball and tales of players and owners—some of the most entertaining stories in all of sports literature. Veeck’s own love for the game began when his father was manager and then President of the Chicago Cubs; upon his father’s death in 1930, Veeck was hired as an office boy for eighteen dollars a week. Here, Veeck recollects those halcyon days and how they underscored his development as a wily franchise owner, leading up to quite a rumpus, many years later, during his purchase of the White Sox from the “Battling Comiskeys.”
