Snowboarding is no longer the ugly step child of the ski world -- it has become a serious sport on slopes across the nation. Since the inclusion of snowboarding in the 1998 Winter Olympic Games, boarding has gained world-wide attention. The slopes aren't just for skiers anymore! Snowboarding is reaching critical mass on America slopes: A poll released last October of 232 ski resorts across of the country (the third annual by TransWorld Snowboarding Business/National Ski Areas Association) revealed that nearly one quarter (22.4%) of snow-capped mountain visitors in the 1997-98 winter season were snowboarders. They expect this number to climb to more than one-third (34.8%) within the next 5 years. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Snowboarding will be the constant cold-weather companion for those driven to shredding the slopes on their boards, with: -- Information on the intriguing history of the sport (so legend has it, a father created the first snowboard for his young daughter by cutting down a plank of wood and attaching some rubber non-slip material to the top!) -- Comprehensive coverage of the lingo -- from shredding to halfpipe to carving. -- Detailed, valuable coverage of how to get started -- from getting the right gear to step-by-step instructions on how to get started boarding, with illustrations and photos. -- Important tips and advice on how to avoid injury and how to stay in shape for maximum boarding form. -- The word on who is (who was) who in the world of professional boarding. -- The low down on getting the right board for the right price -- and which companies are providing the best bang for your buck! Also, info on how to take care of your board onceyou've selected one.

She Shoots, She Scores" She Shoots, She Scores!" Ever since the plucky Kallipateira snuck in to compete in the all-male Olympic games in ancient Greece, women athletes have fought to win recognition for their sex. And once they had exchanged their corsets for bloomers and took up cycling en masse in the late 1800s, the wheels of progress were set in motion. Who can forget 1973, when tennis great Billie Jean King beat Bobby Riggs in the legendary "Battle of the Sexes"? And if you think hockey is just for men, tell that to Manon Rheaume, who played goalie for the NHL in 1992. Today women are active at every level of competition in dozens of sports. "The Complete Idiot' s Guide(R)to Women in Sports" gives you all the facts you need, from antiquity to the 21st century.
