MZ's reputation has been built-up upon "value for money" for the road rider and success in motorcycle sport; notably road racing and long distance trials. The magic of MZ was largely due to the involvement of Dip. Ing. Walter Kaaden, who sadly passed away on 3rd March 1996, aged 76 years. To Kaaden must go the title of the world's greatest ever 2-stroke engineer. Of course, before MZ came DKW, an equally famous name, and really this book is the story of both these two great marques from Zschopau in Southern Saxony. The book also covers Simson and the new era with the Skorpion.

Mick Walker has written about most of the world's classic marques and many of the sport's greatest riders, but the onset of a life-threatening illness persuaded him to pen this book through his own huge variety of experiences as a rider, dealer, importer, tuner, team boss, and author. Despite being an intensely personal story, The Ride of My Life is a wide-ranging look at motorcycling that will resonate with every enthusiast. For those who share Mick's passion for the Italian marques of the last half century, the book is required reading, but there is much, too, about machines from Britain, Japan, Germany and elsewhere. Mick has also packed the pages with characters he has known personally, including some of the all-time greats; Barry Sheene, Mike Hailwood, Carl Fogarty, Fabio Taglioni, Alejandro de Tomaso and Derek Minter - whose relationship with Mick is recalled.

A first-of-its-kind investigative book on the least examined and most important topic in sports today. Youth sports isn't just orange slices and all-star trophies anymore. It's 14-year-olds who enter high school with a decade of football experience, 9-year-olds competing for national baseball championships, 5-year-old golfers who shoot par, and toddlers made from sperm donated (for a fee) by elite college athletes. It's a year-round "travel team" in every community--and parents who fear that not making the cut in grade school will cost their kid the chance to play in high school. In short, a landscape in which performance often matters more than participation, all the way down to peewee basketball. Much as Fast Food Nation challenged our eating habits and Silent Spring rewired how we think about the environment, Tom Farrey's Game On will forever change the way we look at this desperate culture besotted by the example of Tiger Woods. An Emmy award-winning reporter, Farrey examines the lives of child athletes and the consequences of sorting the strong from the weak at ever earlier ages: fewer active kids, testier sidelines, rising obesity rates, and U.S. national teams that rarely win world titles. He dives into the world of these games that are played by more than 30 million boys and girls, and along the way uncovers some surprising truths. When the very best athletes enter organized play. The best approach to coaching them. And the powerful influence of wealth and genetics. Farrey has written a surprising, alarming, thoughtful, and ultimately empowering book for anyone who wants the best for the newest generation of Americans, as athletes and citizens. From the Hardcover edition.
