A Billy Martin Bio, James Patterson at Augusta and More Sports Books | Michael Giltz

A drinker, a scrappy player, a fighter and undeniably at the center of the Bronx Zoo, Martin made great coy for sports writers throughout his career. Working with Peter de Jonge, he returns to the links to deliver a golfing fable about a late in life champion on the Senior Tour who finds true redemption by mentoring a teen with a natural swing that’s a thing of beauty. To find more great picks in every category (like Days Of Rage, an acclaimed and gripping look at the FBI’s years-long battle with the radical underground movements of the 1970s or the first cookbook from Austin’s legendary Franklin Barbecue), along with ALL the releases in every genre, head to BookFilter. It’s clear-eyed, sobering and a riveting read for anyone who thinks steroids is no big problem or some of the players got a raw deal from the media and baseball’s front office. It tells about Meb’s training for big races and then helpfully breaks it down for mere mortals, with tips on how everyday runners can model themselves on Meb. If you’re shanking balls into the water hazard, this one’s for you.


Hired and fired and hired and fired and hired again, Billy Martin is one of the fabled Yankee greats. For more picks in every category, as well as every release in every genre (like autobiography and history and mystery), head to BookFilter.

Well, Yankee fans cheered Arod on Opening Day. Oh and it’s funny in an awful sort of way, with critics comparing it to a telenovela and the comic novels of Carl Hiaasen.

I don’t care what I eat, I’m never going to walk a marathon, much less run one.



Anyone looking to lose themselves in a book can depend on the latest offering from the shockingly prolific James Patterson. But above all he was a passionate winner. Forgive and forget? Or a cynical realization that they need Arod to perform at least decently if the Yankees are to have any (slim) hope of slipping into the post-season? Whatever the case, they might all enjoy the painful facts in Blood Sport, a widely praised look at the steroid era by reporters/editors from the Miami News Times and Newsday, rspectively. Pennington is a New York Times reporter who covered the Yankees during the dark days of the mid-80s through 1990 and he delivers the sprawling, epic tale Martin’s career deserves in an biography that Publishers Weekly calls “a must-read for fans of the great American pastime.”

Here’s a look at some of the best books about sports just out this week. But if you’re a running fanatic and want tips from one of the long-distance greats, this is the book for you.

Why We Hate Sports Books Books by coaches? Trust us, they can’t help you run your business or your life.

Thanks, Delray!)

Most of these books start off with a gripping insider story. In Riley’s The Winner Within, he acknowledges, among others, Michael Eisner, Lod Cook (former Arco CEO, now a Global Crossing honcho), Teddy Forstman, and David Halberstam. No, I didn’t read them cover to cover. Witness Deion Sanders in Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan’s book: “He’s very intelligent.” (Thanks, Deion!) Former college player and University of Kentucky assistant coach Delray Brooks pens a note in Pitino’s book. (Can you imagine No Choking Matter by Latrell Sprewell?) The other problem is closer to home: Who in the world has the time to put up their feet and read a sports book for a couple of hours? Your spouse would kill you! Never mind, “Go cut the grass.” Nowadays it’s, “Shouldn’t you be buying that iMac online, dear?” or “Are you ready for the investment club meeting tomorrow night, dear?” (Uh, no.)

So what’s a sports junkie to do? Well, there is a solution, albeit a very imperfect one: coach books. But we still want to read about sports. And this has been no small boon to publishing executives who have been selling oodles of these books–many of them bestsellers–to business people. (Twelve is big, apparently.) Most of them are filled with celebrity testimonials designed to reassure the reader that the coach really is great. Pitino’s latest book, for instance (he has written three), is titled Success is a Choice. Except for the stories. We have two problems, though. I recently spent a few weeks flipping through a dozen or so of them. Others have a meaningful subtitle. Nothing wrong with this. We’re coping with families, mortgages, and careers. Nothing wrong with that, right? Just good, clean fun. Some have chapter titles that appear to be written by a Cub Scout troop leader: “Build self-esteem.” “Set demanding goals.” “Always be positive.” (I’m not making these up.) They always have a list of the coaches’ secrets to success, always bulleted: “The definite dozen system.” And “Twelve keys to managing team players, tough bosses, setbacks, and success. First, most of the athletes today aren’t worth throwing a rotten egg at.

Read Serwer’s column “Street Life” in Fortune and every day at FORTUNE.com. Feel Good, win-for-success gobbledygook. Kentucky, when Christian Laettner hits the turnaround jump shot with 2.1 seconds left in overtime), and your significant other tells you you’re wasting your time, you can say: “No, I’m not. While none of these coaches is ready for sainthood, at least most of them aren’t in jail. These were our sports heroes. So it isn’t just the Boston Celtics’ Rick Pitino telling stories about the old days coaching the New York Knicks and the University of Kentucky–which is all you really want to read about! It’s the peripatetic Pitino giving us lessons about life. First, because this is often the part that the coaches actually write themselves. I’m learning about ten steps to overachieving in business and in life,” which is the subtitle of the book. (Brooks was recently fired as head coach of Texas-Pan American and is being investigated over possible misuse of university money. How about Pat Riley? Doesn’t the Knicks’ Jeff Van Gundy have the upper hand these days? My point is that there are way too many of these dang books. What has prompted the explosion in coaches’ books over the past few years? Well, the dearth in compelling players’ books, for one. The thank-yous, in fact, are usually pretty good. (Guess who won that one?!) With Joe Torre’s Ground Rules for Winners, it’s a story about “the ultimate high-strung perfectionist” Paul O’Neill and the 1996 World Series. We wanted to read about them. Plus, thanks to ESPN, some of ‘em are actually famous.

It doesn’t get much better, trust me. (Pat Riley, get thee to a writing class!) And second, because they actually have some tasty tidbits.

Why We Hate Sports Books Books by coaches? Trust us, they can’t help you run your business or your life..

Actually, I discovered that one of the more interesting sections in the books are the introductions.

The books all follow pretty much the same format. As for those sections, well, there are no Ball Fours here. (Pitino’s means of attaining success, of course, is simply to change jobs every few years.)

So while you’re reading Pitino’s take on the greatest college basketball game ever played (the 1993 NCAA East regionals, Duke vs. We’re grownups now. (Remember Jim Bouton?) It’s mostly sanitized insider stories filled with a handful of locker-room yuks. See, these coaches’ books aren’t simply sports books. (Let’s see, any other famous people I know who I left out?) Joe Torre thanks George Steinbrenner (no kidding!), and Mike Shanahan thanks John Elway, Terrell Davis, and Shannon Sharpe (got that right!), as well as Nike. As I’ve said, if the books were filled with only this stuff, I would gladly read them. Texas A&M. But they quickly enough slip into that touchy-feely, Dr. Even a general manager of a team, Pat Williams of the Orlando Magic (he’s the guy with all the adopted kids), has written books–two of them! What’s next? Lessons on Winning: My Career as a Toronto Blue Jays Batboy?

In any event, most of these books really aren’t so bad–that is, if you like sports and are good at skipping or speed-reading. It was pretty straightforward.

(FORTUNE Small Business) Remember those sports books we used to read when we were kids? You know, read-’em-under-the-covers-with-a-flashlight stuff like Gridiron Greats and Say Hey: The Willie Mays Story. (Great timing, eh?) Was it Shanahan? Or was it Elway? Perhaps we should all read Elway’s book? Or what about Lou Holtz and his book? His University of South Carolina Gamecocks haven’t won a game so far this year. And, of course, agents. That’s right, books by your favorite, winningest, dare-to-be-great, take-no-prisoner coach. In Lou Holtz’s Winning Every Day, it’s the 1988 Cotton Bowl, Notre Dame vs. Flash-forward to today. But for those of you looking for real help in managing your career or business, or actually improving your life, for Pete’s sake, you don’t want to go here. Most have a catchy title, sometimes with a pun here or there, like Reach for the Summit, by Pat Summit, coach of the University of Tennessee Lady Vols basketball team. They have huge contracts. Very cleverly, they’re all done up in a self-help and managing-your-career wrapper.

Speaking of Shanahan, just how qualified is he to write a book telling anyone how to run his life? Yes, he has been a winning coach, and yes, he has won two Super Bowls, but look at him this year–he was 0-4 at presstime.

Best of all, the editors and publishers of these books have even solved the “How can I justify reading these things?” problem. I didn’t have to. Why? Because for the most part they were droll and repetitive exercises in the obvious

Real-Life ‘Ocean’s 11′: How Agents Foiled a $7 Million Casino Scheme

Figuring out what [were] the most effective angles to hold her hands, reviewing the distinct protocols within her own casino,” Casey said.

According to Casey, the lady was truly operating for an unlikely criminal mastermind — Phuong “Pai Gow John” Truong.

Truong, a former casino employee, was identified as small far more than an avid gambler and drifter in the nearby Vietnamese community. That happened weeks soon after Truong was filmed undercover when a tip came in that a portion of gang was headed back to the place exactly where it all began, the Sycuan Casino. Take a puff with two fingers on the cigarette, that implies to double down,” Casey stated.

After once more, the Trans looked to be unstoppable.

“They began pulling a lot extra income off the tables in a shorter amount of time,” Casey stated.

Though the FBI continued to play catch-up, the Tran scores started going by means of the roof, peaking at an incredible $868,000 at Resorts East in Chicago in October 2005.

But for all the slickness and expertise, the Tran gang, specifically its leader, Phuong Truong, would fall prey to a classic negative guy blunder: greed. The group’s members began cheating at blackjack, where the table limits are typically higher and the winnings larger. She was fired, and the situation was brought to the FBI’s focus and chalked up as an isolated incident. The false shuffle is an old sleight-of-hand trick in which a dealer appears to wash and shuffle a deck of cards. They had been able to conduct the scam in full view of the thousands of casino safety cameras and, by the time a casino realized one of their tables had a massive loss, the crew would be gone.

“A lot of the casinos did not comprehend what was taking place to them in actual time. They took in, what we could prove, around $7 million,” Casey stated.

Casey stated Pai Gao John forgot the first rule of gambling: In the finish, the house normally wins.

. “I can smoke my cigarette like this, then you currently know exactly where to bet, what to bet.”

The final piece of evidence that federal investigators needed was capturing the complete scam on video. Normally, it tends to make no difference when the cards are effectively shuffled, but on a false shuffle the player has it all spelled out for them.

“They had it set up like a business enterprise, exactly where they had a day shift, evening shift and graveyard. That is it,” Truong mentioned in the video. That way, players at the table who have been watching and tracking the order the cards came out will know specifically how to bet when that deck, or slug, of cards comes back into play.

“No 1 is the wiser if you never know what you’re seeking for,” Pete Casey, specific agent for the FBI in San Diego, told “20/20″ co-anchor Chris Cuomo.

According to Casey, the lead agent on the case, the dealer was caught assisting many men and women win a few hundred dollars at the table. In the undercover video of the meeting, Truong laid out his whole scheme.

“That was one of the very best undercover videos I’ve ever observed,” stated Casey.

“I only require two guys to go in there with me and light up a cigarette and game more than. In 2002, a dealer at San Diego’s Sycuan Casino was caught performing what is known as a false shuffle. Following spraying the dealer with mace and grabbing the chips, one particular of the two alleged bandits was literally knocked out of his wig and sunglasses by casino safety, promptly foiling the robbery.

Watch the full story here.

There is an exception, on the other hand: a group identified as the Tran Organization. They felt they knew specifically what they had been carrying out, and they can under no circumstances get caught,” Casey said.

They spread out, sending teams to recruit dealers and scam casinos up the West Coast, into Canada and down through the Midwest.

“It really is safe to say that if there is a casino in that state, they hit it,” Casey stated.

The Trans had two things going for them. He pled guilty, was sentenced to 70 months in prison and had to forfeit and pay back millions to casinos and the government.

“They hit close to 19 casinos. Embittered, they happily became informants for the FBI. That kind of funds told the Tran Organization one thing.

“That signifies they have been on it. Casino heists make for wonderful motion pictures, but in actual life they commonly end up significantly less glamorous.

Take the botched try earlier this week when two thieves attempted to steal $155,000 from a dealer at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. They figured it out, maybe two, three weeks following they had left,” mentioned Casey.

By the time the crew arrived at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut in 2005, its ranks had swelled to much more than 40 people and it was averaging $50,000 each ten minutes at the table.

It also had changed techniques. In blackjack, even so, a player is not in a position to create down any of the cards, so the Trans went higher-tech.

They utilized hidden microphones and a tracker — a particular person watching the order the cards had been being dealt — would read the cards into the microphones when pretending to smoke a cigarette. At some point Truong and his top rated lieutenants have been identified and put beneath surveillance.

“We got their travel records, their playing habits, all the currency transaction reports,” Casey stated.

On June eight, 2006, agents for the Mississippi Gaming Commission went undercover to meet with Truong. This time, the FBI and casino have been prepared.

With various cameras rolling, they watched as the group, led by one particular of the Tran Organization’s most prolific trackers, Willy Tran, stole much more than $20,000 in 20 minutes before he walked out.

With this treasure trove of video in hand, authorities finally moved in and Phuong Truong’s house of cards collapsed.

By 2007, Truong and 46 of his confederates had been indicted for racketeering, theft and cash laundering. The game suited their approach since in mini-baccarat a player is allowed to create down what cards have been dealt. In reality, the dealer truly protects a significant portion of the cards and keeps them in the order in which they have been dealt. On the other finish of the line, someone would sit outdoors the casino with a specially created personal computer system talking to the tracker, who was wearing a hidden ear piece. What Casey did not recognize at the time was that the dealer was doing extra than just stealing, she was gathering intelligence.

“She was researching it, certainly. Truong began shortchanging his dealers. The laptop or computer program would read out when, and in what order, the cards would come back out in immediately after the dealer had performed the false shuffle to the tracker.

The tracker would signal to the player at the table when the slug of cards was in play and use hand singles to let him know how to bet.

“Take a puff with one finger on, it says to make a bet. According to Casey, Truong devised a strategy: recruit dealers from many casinos willing to understand how to conduct and perform a false shuffle in the course of a card game, and to cash in immediately after that.

Immediately after the dealer was fired from Sycuan, Truong took what the group learned and moved with his wife, Van Tran, and about 15 members of her family north to the Cache Creek Casino outdoors Sacramento, Calif.

With a handful of dealers prepared to go in on it with them, Truong had teams rotating on mini-baccarat tables day and evening at Cache Creek. Primarily based out of San Diego, the group stole much more than $7 million from 19 casinos across the nation using procedures even Hollywood hadn’t believed of.

It began merely adequate. But Truong was prepared to go major time. He thought they have been dealers prepared to perform with him. They had been pulling out $20,000-a-round of cheating,” Casey said.

The crew stole $158,000 in the month of March 2003
