Published Sep 2008

The first full-length biography of the legendary head coach of the Cleveland Browns, this book explores how Paul Brown worked his way from high school coach to pro football Hall of Famer, while setting forth a blueprint for the modern game. As the first coach to scout opponents through game films, call plays from the sideline, and systemize the college draft, Brown finessed the sport into a more precise science. His teams rarely disappointed, and he created a winning dynasty in Cleveland, coaching the Browns to three NFL championships and four AAFC titles. Based on extensive research and original interviews with former player and others, this book examines in absorbing detail Paul Brown's profound influence on the game.

Genuine fans take the best team moments with the less than great, and know that the games that are best forgotten make the good moments truly shine. This monumental book of the Detroit Tigers documents all the best moments and personalities in the history of the team, but also unmasks the regrettably awful and the unflinchingly ugly. In entertaining—and unsparing—fashion, this book sparkles with Tigers highlights and lowlights, from wonderful and wacky memories to the famous and infamous. Such moments include the impressive run to the World Series in 2006 and the clutch hitting of Kirk Gibson in 1984, as well as the horrendous years when the Tigers were in the cellar of their division and the particularly disastrous 2003 season. Whether providing fond memories, goose bumps, or laughs, this portrait of the team is sure to appeal to the fan who has been through it all.

Published Sep 2006

Motor City baseball fans haven't rocked this hard since 1984, when the Detroit Tigers went wire to wire behind the talents of Kirk Gibson, Alan Trammell, and a cantankerous, white-haired managed named Sparky. The cast of character has changed, with the likes of Pudge, Magglio, and a new cantankerous manager leading the way, but Jim Leyland's Tigers have all but erased 20-plus years of mediocrity with this incredible 2006 season. The once downtrodden franchise has taken the league by storm, setting its sights on a division title and perhaps even eyeing Motown's first baseball championship since the decade of big hair. Out of Nowhere chronicles the magical season that's been 2006. From spring traing to opening day, the Tigers' amazing climb to the top of the AL Central standings and their late-season pennant push, this lavishly illustrated commemorative book has everything a Detroit baseball fan could want. Written by longtime Detroit sports columnist George Cantor, Out of Nowhere details through words and photographs the best baseball season this city has experienced in more than two decades.
