Published Jun 2015

A flame-throwing star with the Houston Astros, J. R. Richard was at the top of his profession when he inexplicably began complaining of arm weakness in 1980. Initially scoffed at because he continued approaching 100 mph on the radar gun, everything changed when Richard collapsed while playing catch with a teammate—later diagnosed as a life-threatening stroke. The shocking development ended Richard's major league career and set off a chain of events that led to the former All-Star being homeless by the mid-1990s. This rapid rise and sudden, tragic fall define the unusual, moving, and inspirational life of a Houston icon who has endured many hardships but has become an admired figure in his adopted hometown. J. R. Richard tells that story now in his own words, including the highs and the lows of his brilliant athletic career, the difficulties that befell him on and off the field, abandonment by those he counted on after his stroke, the despair of losing everything, and his ultimate redemption and giving back to the community.

With the help of the easy-to-master steps in this book, even a novice gambler can go from being a traditional craps player to a dice controller—an advantage player with a true edge over the house. For a dozen years, Frank Scoblete and his wife angered casino bosses around the country by knowing more about how to win money than almost anyone who ever challenged a casino. They used sophisticated methods—including controlled shooting and little-known advantage-play techniques—to turn the tables on the house. Now Frank, labeled an "icon in this industry" by Midwest Gaming & Travel magazine, shares with readers everything he knows about beating the casinos at craps. He instructs readers about the essentials: the grab, the grip, the pickup, the throw, the backspin, and the bounce. Many still doubt the controversial theory that controlled shooting can overcome the house odds in craps, but Scoblete demonstrates that it can.

Published May 2015

The St. Louis Cardinals are one of baseball's most storied franchises, and as much a part of St. Louis as Anheuser-Busch and the arch. From Lou Brock to Matt Carpenter, Ozzie Smith to Yadier Molina, Bob Gibson to Adam Wainwright, from Hall of Famers to rookie busts, the Cardinals are beloved in St. Louis. In this book, Stan McNeal provides a closer look at the great moments and the lowlights that have made the Cardinals one of the baseball's keystone teams. Through the words of the players, via multiple interviews conducted with current and past Cardinals, readers will meet the players, coaches, and management and share in their moments of greatness and defeat. This book shares stories behind such Cardinal memories as the little-known clubhouse antics of backup catcher Bob Uecker during the teams' memorable run in the 1960s, the excitement at Busch Stadium in the 1980s as the Cardinals reached the World Series three times, and the elation of the 2006 and 2011 World Series championships.
