Title:  The Complete Illustrated Guide to the Fundamentals: Play Baseball The Ripken Way
Author:  Ripken, Cal Jr. et al

Binding:  Hard Cover
List price:  $24.95
Your cost:  $8.95
Pages: 236

From Publishers Weekly: This book is the next best thing to a personal lesson with the man who broke Lou Gehrig's record of playing in 2,632 consecutive games; it's a comprehensive look at all aspects of how to play baseball that will benefit young players and adult weekend warriors. Assisted by his brother Bill, who also is a Major League veteran, and Sports Illustrated baseball editor Burke, Ripkin presents the training philosophy taught to him by his father, a legendary scout for the Baltimore Orioles. The book's nine chapters, or "innings," offer clearly detailed, precisely illustrated (by photographer Bill Wood) and incredibly helpful advice on all aspects of batting, base running, infielding and outfielding. The best are the chapters on catching, where Ripkin provides numerous insights into how a catcher can be "a true on-field manager," and on pitching, where Ripkin relies on the insights of John Habyanas, a former player and current pitching guru. He also offers short "Cal's Corner" sidebars with teaching tips. Perhaps the most helpful chapter is the "9th Inning" look at how managers need to examine "behavior issues" in the same way as catching and throwing to help players "cope with their failures and their losses."

Title:  Failure is Not an Option: Mission Control from Mercury to Apollo 13 and Beyond

Binding: Paperback
List price:  $14.00
Your cost:  $5.95
Pages: 415

Kranz, a former Air Force fighter pilot, was NASA's flight director from the start of the Mercury program. He worked on each of the Apollo missions, including the fatal Apollo 11 launch; the film "Apollo 13" portrayed how Kranz led the rescue efforts of that crew. This trade paper reprint of Kranz's best-selling memoir comprises his own telling of the Apollo 13 story and much more from the space program's earliest years. Book News (2004)

Plenty of books (and several films) have already tried to depict the space program's excitement; few of their creators had the first-person experience or the attention to detail Krantz offers in this gripping book. When the heroic American astronauts of the '60s and '70s inquired, "Houston, do you read?" it was often Krantz's team who answered from the ground. "If you don't know what to do, don't do anything!" Its climax is Apollo 13, with Krantz serving as "lead flight director" and helping to save the trapped astronauts' lives. His account of that barely averted disaster evokes the adrenalized mood of the flight controllers and the technical problems ("gimbal lock," oxygen status, return trajectories) that had to be solved for the astronauts to survive. Eight photos.
