Scott Simon, host of NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday, is a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan, and in MY CUBS he chronicles his adolescence in Chicago as a die-hard fan to tell the story of the relationship between the team and the neighbourhood and city, and how the condition of Cubness has both charmed and haunted the lives of so many fans. From theories and curses to jinxes and myths, Simon chronicles how a team of loveable losers inspired such fervour and dedication from their fans, and how their 2016 win transcended sports to become an underdog narrative for the whole nation.

In a decade that featured such legendary hurlers as Sandy Koufax, Bob Gibson, Don Drysdale, and other Hall of Famers, no pitcher won more games than Juan Marichal in the 1960s. His unique, high-kick pitching style was imitated by kids from New York to San Franciso, and it is immortalised in a bronze statue outside of the Giants' current ballpark. Marichal was the first Dominican-born player to play in an All-Star game and the first elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, and he won more games than any of his countrymen. In Juan Marichal, Marichal tells the story of his rise from living in a shanty as a young boy in the Dominican Republic to his status as one of the great pitchers of all time. He offers reflections on lingering stereotypes, the impact of steroids, and the general state of the game in the 21st century.

Some beards are bushy, others are peach-fuzzy. Some are distinguished, others are scruffy. Some beards inspire love and trust (Santa's); others evoke fear and loathing (Satan's). Abe Lincoln's beard connotes patriotic devotion; Shakespeare's stands for artistic brilliance. But no matter who their wearer or what their shape, all beards have one thing in common: Crumbs get stuck in them. With facial adornments back in fashion (anointing the wearer with a veneer of virility and intellectual prowess) men of all ages will want to consider the choices presented in this useful little book. Inside are 40 different whiskery embellishments plucked from the broad beard spectrum, including (to name just a few) the French Fork, the Soul Patch, the Chin Puff, and the Fu Manchu. The Little Book of Beards lets you know what each style says about you as a person, and identifies which styles will make women fall at your feet- and which might just make them run for the hills.
