Fred Wyant, who spent 19 of his 27 years in the NFL as a referee, gives the reader an inside the look at America's most popular sport. He lashes out at owners and coaches who allow players who perform on the field to abuse women, drugs and alcohol and break society's laws off the field. He asks: "Where are the role models today?" He criticizes the greed of owners who want the public to finance their stadiums, discusses the pros and cons of instant replay, the influence television has on officials, names the calls in a game that officials miss most and why, criticizes TV announcers who do not know the rules and mislead their viewers and dileniates how an officiating team works and how each member of the seven-man crew is challenged with more than 1,500 decisions in a game. The book is G-rated with no profanity and will appeal to children, women and sports fans of all ages. Author Rene A. Henry blends Wyant's experiences with more than 75 interviews of sors leaders including Mike Ditka, Don Shula, the late Tom Landry, Lou Holtz, Marv Levy, Chuck Noll, Johnny Unitas, Peter Ueberroth, Sam Huff, Kellen Winslow, Sonny Jurgensen, Bart Star, owners Michael Brown and Dan Rooney and referees Jim Tunney and Red Cashion.

Turn it one way andyou lock resources away, even from those they belong to. Turn it the otherway and you release resources and give people back to themselves.

SIR ALEX FERGUSON has dominated English football for over 26 years. Now, having decided to call it a day, 20/13 pays tribute to the mans remarkable achievements by recounting each of Manchester Uniteds 20 title triumphs from the Edwardian era to the present day and the 13 titles won by Sir Alex during his United reign. The signing of Robin Van Persie provided the last great coup of the Ferguson era, the Dutchman shunning Manchester City in favour of Old Trafford following a summer long transfer chase. Sure enough, Van Persie went on to earn a second successive Premier League Golden Boot and with the league title he craved. Yet 20 is about more than just Uniteds most recent triumph. Award-winning journalist Harry Harris looks back at every title winning season and analyses each one from the viewpoint of a player who distinguished himself in that title year. It is a tribute to Sir Alex Ferguson that the future of English football suddenly seems unpredictable without the last great football manager and the power and influence he wielded within the game.

Living in the future was one of the Utopian ideas of the twentieth century. Not only did cars look like spaceships - most houses did too. Driven by an idealistic vision of how life could be, architects and designers made residential living a canvas for visionary ideas of genius minds. By designing interiors that were modernist yet eclectic, radical yet poetic, they created kaleidoscopes of the future. Inside Utopia explores the adventurous depths of the creative cosmos of modernist interior design. It showcases inspiring homes around the world - be it a brutalist high-rise in the middle of a metropolis or a habitable hobbit-hole hidden within green hills. Also featured are portraits of the fearless minds who designed them: space cowboys like Verner Panton or Antti Lovag, minimalists like Luis Barragdn, eclectic masterminds like Carlo Mollino, or establishers of a new classic like Gio Ponti. Let us go back to the past - to find our future.
