Appetites

Ein Kochbuch

In Appetites stellt Anthony Bourdain seine Lieblingsgerichte vor, die ihm schon während seiner Kindheit, später in seiner Karriere als Koch und natürlich auf seinen Reisen ans Herz gewachsen sind. Doch Appetites ist weit mehr als ein Kochbuch. Es ist ein Kunstwerk. Ein Manifest. Eine Reflexion über das (richtige) Leben und ein Schlachtplan für die Küche, der dabei hilft, Gäste mit atemberaubender Effizienz in Schrecken zu versetzen. Die Fotos sind rebellisch, frech, ungeschönt, unkonventionell. Sie zeigen, wie es in einer Küche wirklich zugeht, und zelebrieren Bourdains Bad-Boy-Image auf schaurig-schöne Weise. Die Gerichte schmecken dennoch fantastisch und sollten – in Bourdains Augen – wirklich von jedem gekocht werden können.

Red Sox Rule

Terry Francona and Boston's Rise to Dominance

Michael Holley, bestselling author of Patriot Reign, provides an inside look at how it all happened. With the exclusive cooperation of Terry Francona and stories from the clubhouse and the conference room, Holley reveals the private sessions and the dugout and front-office strategies that have made the Boston Red Sox a budding dynasty. When Grady Little's job prospects were dimming during game seven of the Red Sox–Yankees playoffs in 2003, Oakland A's bench coach Terry Francona was puttering around his house, unaware of his fate. General manager Theo Epstein and owner John Henry sat in their Fenway box, praying that Little would pull Pedro Martinez. And fans throughout New England howled when Martinez remained in the game and the Sox lost the series. They wanted Little's head, and they got it. In Epstein and Henry's search for a manager, they wanted someone from the new school, someone who could manage wealthy and/or sensitive players and rely not only on gut and instinct but also on the cold science of statistics. Francona, the son of a professional baseball player and a major leaguer himself until devastating knee injuries ended his career prematurely, was a dark horse candidate. After all, he'd been a mediocre manager while with the Phillies. But he had a great head for the game, and as the manager for the minor league Birmingham Barons, he had managed none other than Michael Jordan without a glitch. After Francona's job interview with Epstein, which included a written test and a game simulation, the Red Sox felt they'd found their man. And now, after two championships in four seasons, they have their proof. With a team of disparate personalities, from the inscrutable Manny Ramirez to the affable David Ortiz, Francona and the Red Sox have overtaken their hated archnemesis, the New York Yankees, as the American League's elite team. Insightful, fascinating, and surprising, Red Sox Rule is the story of the changing face of baseball and the inner workings of its finest organization.

Page: 256

View: 895

Former MLB All-Star and Gold Glove winner Andy Van Slyke, now the first-base coach of the Detroit Tigers, takes you into the dugout, the clubhouse, and onto the field throughout the 2008 season to give you a rare inside look at the most highly anticipated season in the Tigers' storied 108-year history-day by day, game by game, as it actually unfolded. The book combines Van Slyke's insightful, introspective, sometimes humorous diary from the dugout and the playing field with veteran baseball writer Jim Hawkins' view from the press box in real time as the games actually occurred. Each entry is made without the benefit of hindsight, not knowing what the next game or the next day would bring. Stand beside Van Slyke in the first-base coach's box and sit beside him in the dugout to feel the emotions rise and fall with each win and each loss, as the Detroit Tigers, preseason favorites to win the 2008 American League pennant with their franchise-record $139 million payroll, deal with the daily grind of the 162-game season.
