“Probably the best novel ever written about sport.” —The Times (UK) He was a real-life, working-class hero known as the “British Muhammad Ali”—because he had a big mouth and wasn’t afraid to use it. But Brian Clough wasn’t a boxer, he was a soccer coach, known for taking backwater teams and making them into champions. In towns where people had little else, the hard-drinking and scrappy Clough was a hero. He was especially beloved for telling it like it was on behalf of small-town teams everywhere—calling out the stars who played dirty, rival coaches he suspected of bribing referees, and the league that let them get away with it. And then one day Clough was offered a job coaching the big-city team he’d called the dirtiest—the perennial powerhouse Leeds United. The Damned Utd tells the story of the legendary Clough’s tumultuous forty-four days trying to turn around a corrupt institution without being corrupted himself—the players who wouldn’t play, the management that looked the other way, the wife and friends who stood by him as he fought to do the right thing. The inspiring story behind the movie of the same name, The Damned Utd has been called by The Times of London, “The best novel ever written about sport.”

Sono tempi difficili per il ducato di Felceri: il passo di Oveda, che attraversa i monti a nord e porta alla repubblica di Katiana, è chiuso. Le tensioni tra i due stati sono forti e provocano non pochi problemi, soprattutto economici e di approvvigionamento. In tutte le città del ducato l’esercito ha fin troppa mano libera per mantenere l’ordine e provoca ulteriori ostilità, soprattutto con le piccole comunità di elfi e nani. A Porto d’Argento, il cuore del ducato, la confraternita dei mercanti sembra accettare in silenzio il cattivo andamento degli affari, ma in questi giorni difficili, all’improvviso, il palazzo ducale viene congelato. È qui che entra in azione i protagonisti di questo romanzo fantasy (di cui La genesi è solo la prima parte): guerrieri, elfi nani e chierici affronteranno nemici pericolosi, uniti da una forte amicizia. Coraggiosi e di buon cuore, i protagonisti di questa saga dovranno affrontare, draghi, non-morti, orchi, goblin, coboldi e, soprattutto, terribili minacce oscure. Potere politico, complotti religiosi, paure e dubbi di cuore saranno alcuni degli ostacoli che i giovani avventurieri Idra, Beltran, Cosetta, Ramas, Otik, Gorak, Martirius e Urania affronteranno affiancati e mossi da tante, diverse e personali motivazioni. Questo è il diario di una delle protagoniste: Cosetta, composto da parole a volte ragionate a volte emotive, nel tentativo di raccontare quanto la storia di Atlantica abbia travolto e trasformato la sua vita.

Discover what you can do with R! Introducing the R system, covering standard regression methods, then tackling more advanced topics, this book guides users through the practical, powerful tools that the R system provides. The emphasis is on hands-on analysis, graphical display, and interpretation of data. The many worked examples, from real-world research, are accompanied by commentary on what is done and why. The companion website has code and datasets, allowing readers to reproduce all analyses, along with solutions to selected exercises and updates. Assuming basic statistical knowledge and some experience with data analysis (but not R), the book is ideal for research scientists, final-year undergraduate or graduate-level students of applied statistics, and practising statisticians. It is both for learning and for reference. This third edition expands upon topics such as Bayesian inference for regression, errors in variables, generalized linear mixed models, and random forests.
