Miyamoto Musashi (1584?1645) was the legendary samurai known throughout the world as a master swordsman, spiritual seeker, and author of the classic book on strategy, the Book of Five Rings. Over 350 years after his death, Musashi and his legacy still fascinate us and continue to inspire artists, authors, and filmmakers. Here, respected translator and expert on samurai culture William Scott Wilson has created both a vivid account of a fascinating period in feudal Japan and a portrait of the courageous, iconoclastic samurai who wrestled with philosophical and spiritual ideas that are as relevant today as they were in his time. For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was about mastery of the mind rather than simply technical prowess—and it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in his Book of Five Rings. This volume includes supplemental material on Musashi’s legacy as a martial arts icon, his impact on literature and film, and the influence of his Book of Five Rings.

‘It’s got to be said for the little man, give him a sniff at goal – and he is deadly.’ Jim Gavin One of the greatest Dublin players of the modern GAA era. A man who transcended the racial divide to carve out a stellar career. Foreword by Jim Gavin - manager of the All-Ireland-winning Dublin team. Jason Sherlock grew up in Finglas, North Dublin. As the son of an Irish mother and Asian father, he experienced racism throughout his childhood. On the playing fields and basketball courts however, he found acceptance, along with a new-found discipline to fend off the daily taunts. Sherlock represented Ireland in under-21s soccer, captained its basketball team and spent his summers winning hurling trophies in Cork. But in 1995 his life changed overnight as he was plucked from the fringes to become the best-known star in the GAA. He won an All-Ireland SFC title with Dublin, whose supporters gave him his own song. ‘Jayo Mania’ came out of nowhere and spread through the country like wildfire. New opportunities arose from his new-found celebrity status. He became a TV presenter and started to mix with the good and the great, opened shops with Sylvester Stallone and Richard Branson, and gladly surfed the wave of celebrity. His soccer and GAA performances however, declined, and he began to feel as though he was seen as a novelty or marketable product, rather than a sportsman. Over the next decade and a half, Dublin failed to win another All-Ireland and Sherlock became utterly obsessed with trying to get back on top. In 2009, he was dropped from the Dublin panel, his self-worth plummeted, and he started to label his career as ‘fourteen years of failure’. Not content to wallow for long, he began the fight to get his place back on the team. Sherlock’s story is one of a battle for acceptance, a fight against racism, a climb to the highest levels of three sports with a stop off along ‘Celebrity Way’. It is the journey of a boy who was cast head-first into the full glare of the media and became an Irish legend. But more than anything else, this is a story of one man’s resilience.

The first and only memoir by one of the original Navajo code talkers of WWII-includes the actual Navajo Code and rare photos. Although more than 400 Navajos served in the military during World War II as top-secret code talkers, even those fighting shoulder to shoulder with them were not told of their covert function. And, after the war, the Navajos were forbidden to speak of their service until 1968, when the code was finally declassified. Of the original twenty- nine Navajo code talkers, only two are still alive. Chester Nez is one of them. In this memoir, the eighty-nine-year-old Nez chronicles both his war years and his life growing up on the Checkerboard Area of the Navajo Reservation-the hard life that gave him the strength, both physical and mental, to become a Marine. His story puts a living face on the legendary men who developed what is still the only unbroken code in modern warfare.

**WINNER British Sports Book Awards SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR** **Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award** Gareth Thomas had it all. He was a national hero, a sporting icon. He was a leader of men, captain of Wales and the British Lions. To him, rugby was an expression of cultural identity, a sacred code. It was no mere ball game. It gave him everything, except the freedom to be himself. This is the story of a man with a secret that was slowly killing him. Something that might devastate not only his own life but the lives of his wife, family, friends and teammates. The only place where he could find any refuge from the pain and guilt of the lie he was living was on the pitch, playing the sport he loved. But all his success didn’t make the strain of hiding who he really was go away. His fear that telling the truth about his sexuality would lose him everything he loved almost sent him over the edge. The deceit ended when Gareth became the world’s most prominent athlete to come out as a gay man. His gesture has strengthened strangers, and given him a fresh perspective. Gareth’s inspiring and moving story transcends the world of sport to tell a universal truth about feeling like an outsider, and facing up to who you really are.

Miyamoto Musashi's Go Rin no Sho or the book of five rings,is considered a classic treatise on military strategy, much like Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Chanakya's Arthashastra. The five "books" refer to the idea that there are different elements of battle, just as there are different physical elements in life, as described by Buddhism, Shinto, and other Eastern religions. Through the book Musashi defends his thesis: a man who conquers himself is ready to take it on on the world, should need arise.

When Dublin footballer Philly McMahon lost his older brother John in 2012, it brought to an end a painful decade, during which John had slipped from the family circle into a deteriorating cycle of addiction. The effects were personally devastating, but amidst the loss there was a glimmer of hope, of opportunity, and what ultimately became the starting point for a journey of remarkable self-discovery. In this profound and inspirational memoir, McMahon traces his and John’s paths, from his earliest recollections of their childhood through the maelstrom of Ballymun’s heroin epidemic. He considers the relationships, tensions, arguments and chance occurrences that pushed them in very different directions: Philly to university, the boardroom and the hallowed turf of Croke Park; John to exile in London, heartbreak and, ultimately, tragedy. Raw, vivid and intensely moving, The Choice is many things – an epic story of triumph in the face of adversity and loss, a family saga, a tribute to the redemptive power of sport – but above all it’s a stirring meditation on the roles compassion and resilience can play in shaping our lives, and those around us, for the better.
