Steve Cherry was born into a large family in 1960 in the Nottinghamshire pit village of Calverton. His family initially assumed that he would follow his father and brother into the nearby pit, but it was clear from an early age that he had a special relationship with football, and this quickly became his main obsession in life. Aged 15, Steve was already goalkeeping in the local colliery team playing with and against full grown miners when he was spotted by a scout from Derby County, then in the top table of English football. He signed as a schoolboy before turning professional, and was capped for England several times in his youth before eventually winning Derby County’s ‘Player of the Year’ in 1983. He then played for Walsall, again winning ‘Player of the Year’, before heading south for Plymouth Argyle where he distinguished himself by winning ‘Player of the Year.’ After a short time at Chesterfield he joined the boyhood club of his dreams, Notts County just after Neil Warnock arrived. County progressed from the bottom of Division Three up to the top of English football via two Wembley play-off wins, and yet again Steve won ‘Player of the Year’. He left Notts in 1995 for a return to Plymouth Argyle via Watford, then Rotherham United, Rushden & Diamonds, and several other clubs. In his later years Steve used his love of the game to coach young boys in many different teams until only recently hanging up his boots. Steve worked with some of the best football managers in the business and played against some of the English football greats. He played for a dozen clubs in 743 League games and is still fondly remembered and welcomed back at all of them.

Filipino Stick Fighting Techniques is the authoritative guide to Cabales Serrada Escrima—a stick fighting art with its roots in Escrima, the national martial art of the Philippines. The popularity of these techniques has dramatically increased since they were used extensively by Matt Damon in action-packed fight scenes in the Jason Bourne films. Developed by Grandmaster Angel Cabales when he came to the U.S., Cabales Serrada Escrima is a distinct system emphasizing close-quarter combat using highly effective stick-fighting moves in unarmed as well as knife fighting situations. This book offers a clear presentation of the basic strikes, blocks, counters, and disarms unique to this style of martial art—as well as explaining how and why the techniques work and when to use them. Angel Cabales was a pioneer in the Filipino Martial Arts and the first teacher of Escrima in the U.S. He trained and certified Mark V. Wiley, the author of this book. Darren G. Tibon, an Escrima Grandmaster, was also trained by Cabales and has contributed a new foreword to the book. This book contains: Personal accounts of Grandmaster Angel Cabales and how he developed his system The dynamics of body positioning, distance control, and both single-stick and empty-hand defensive methods A comprehensive set of training drills for practitioners at different levels Extensively illustrated with over 300 photos and detailed step-by-step instructions, this book lays the foundation for not just learning the system of Cabales Serrada Escrima, but understanding the traditions and philosophy of the art.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The instant classic about why some ideas thrive, why others die, and how to improve your idea’s chances—essential reading in the “fake news” era. BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Chip Heath and Dan Heath's Switch. Mark Twain once observed, “A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on.” His observation rings true: Urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus news stories circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas—entrepreneurs, teachers, politicians, and journalists—struggle to make them “stick.” In Made to Stick, Chip and Dan Heath reveal the anatomy of ideas that stick and explain ways to make ideas stickier, such as applying the human scale principle, using the Velcro Theory of Memory, and creating curiosity gaps. Along the way, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds—from the infamous “kidney theft ring” hoax to a coach’s lessons on sportsmanship to a vision for a new product at Sony—draw their power from the same six traits. Made to Stick will transform the way you communicate. It’s a fast-paced tour of success stories (and failures): the Nobel Prize-winning scientist who drank a glass of bacteria to prove a point about stomach ulcers; the charities who make use of the Mother Teresa Effect; the elementary-school teacher whose simulation actually prevented racial prejudice. Provocative, eye-opening, and often surprisingly funny, Made to Stick shows us the vital principles of winning ideas—and tells us how we can apply these rules to making our own messages stick.
