Embrace the Japanese concept of ikigai and discover a renewed sense of purpose. Be mindful of small pleasures each day to build a more enjoyable and fulfilling life. Keep mentally and physically active to ease the ageing process. The Japanese term ikigai has no direct English translation but essentially means 'reason for living' or 'value in life'. The concept posits that a person's ikigai lies at the intersection of four interconnected aspects of life: what we love, what we're good at, what the world needs and what we can be paid for. Ikigai, therefore, is the ideal balance between our passion, mission, vocation and profession. Ikigai is about making the most of every day, rooted in the belief that finding pleasure in many small things is the secret to a more rewarding life overall. While living in the here and now is key, the sense of purpose derived from pursuing ikigai bolsters our mental resilience to overcome setbacks and feel positive about the future. This concise, easily accessible book offers readers practical advice to identify what really motivates them to get up and go every morning and how seeking their personal ikigai can improve their daily lives. Each of the tenets of ikigai is explained and examined, illustrated by real-life examples of their application and inspiring photographs.

"The Little Book of Man Utd" is a neat collection of words of wit and wisdom by and about Manchester United's players, managers and officials past and present. From Alan Hansen's falsely prophetic 'You'll never win anything with kids' to Eric Cantona's existentialist aphorism on the theme of seagulls, sardines and trawlers, the book will contain over 180 Red Devilish football quotes. Each quotation will be dated and attributed to its source and, where appropriate, entries will be accompanied by explanatory asides and/or supporting statistics. The sayings will appear in no particular order, but where connections and themes emerge these will be taken into account.

The Random History of Cricket - Silly Mid-offs & Silly Mid-ons (Hardcover): Aubrey Day, Justyn Barnes The Random History of Cricket - Silly Mid-offs & Silly Mid-ons (Hardcover)

A lot of leather has 'plunk-plicked' against willow since cricket was first played on the village greens of Olde England, but this doughty little book heroically manages to capture the true essence of the noble ball game in just 100 run-grabbing moments (plus a few extras for overthrows). This is the story of cricket as it has never been told before: a well tossed-up compilation of surreal match reports, spoof correspondence and quirky cartoons. From a Great Victorian refusing to walk (even though his bails have been knocked off by the bowler) to modern-day sledgers playing floodlit pyjama cricket, the game's towering achievements, hilarious happenings and ludicrous coincidences are entertainingly recalled. The book's title says it all: which other sport would have Silly positions in the field? For those who don't know, silly mid-off (facing the batsman) & silly mid-on (behind him) field within a couple of metres of the man at the crease as he flails at the ball, delivered at 140kmh, using a 1kg wooden bat.

This is the story of football as it's never been told before. A cock-eyed compilation of match reports, correspondence, and reminiscences from pundits, commentators, players, officials and spectators who weren't there but should have been. The nutmegs, the tantrums, the penalty shoot-outs that have provided the ubiquitous topic of male conversation for generations, are entertainingly evoked. If The Random History of Football boasted the stories were in bite-sized chunks, Luis Suarez would buy every copy!

The Little Book of Man United is a collection of words of wit and wisdom by and about Manchester United's players, managers and officials past and present. Since the arrival of the Premier League, no club in England can match the Red Devils' 13 titles, two UEFA Champions League victories, the FIFA World Club Cup, six triumphs in the FA Cup, three in the League Cup and 11 in the FA Charity/Community Shield - and there was plenty more glory in the club's first 115 years too. From Alan Hansen's falsely prophetic 'You'll never win anything with kids' to Eric Cantona's existentialist aphorism on the theme of seagulls, sardines and trawlers, the book contains more than 170 Red Devilish football quotes. Each quote is attributed to its source and, where appropriate, entries will be accompanied by explanatory asides and/or supporting statistics.

This is the story of golf as it's never been told before. Presents a dog-legged compilation of sports reports, spoof correspondence and reminiscences from pros, caddies, playing partners and armchair pundits: Mary Queen of Scots cheers herself up at the links at Leith following the murder of her husband Lord Darnley; Dwight D Eisenhower's valet shoots the breeze as he clears up the Oval Office following a particularly gruelling Presidential putting practice session; Bob Hope's chauffeur experiments with some one-liners whilst waiting for his boss in the clubhouse car park; and John Daly's local bartender describes the unique skills of his best customer. The albatrosses, the Big Berthas, the yips and the holes-in-one that have provided the perfect excuse to linger at the nineteenth hole are amusingly recalled for the delectation of the Fair Isle sweater brigade. This fresh new edition, Embarrassing Shanks & Outrageous Slices goes where no golfer wants to be - a little off-line and with their balls in funny positions.

From the 15th century royal ban to a game stopped for seven months because of rain, this is the story of golf as it's never been told before!

Any golfers who have pined for their putters, waxed lyrical about their sand wedge, or fondled a five iron will appreciate this fun compilation of sports reports, spoof correspondence, and reminiscences from pros, caddies, playing partners, and armchair pundits. With humorous illustrations on every page, it captures the comedy, controversy, and curious courses that are all part of the game.

Among the stories it tells: Mary Queen of Scots playing a round just after her husband got killed; the origin of the term “birdie”; champion Lee Trevino’s prank with a rubber snake; and a fly-on-the-wall documentary that embarrassed an upscale golf club so badly that the entire board resigned.
