            The New Zealand All Blacks are one of the most recognisable and formidable teams on the world sporting stage. They are the record setters, the keepers of tradition, and the icons of the game of Rugby Union. They have been the benchmark for skill and execution ever since the oval ...shaped ball first arrived on New Zealand's shores, and are a team the rest of the world aspire to beat. They also hold the most victories of any Test nation, and the best win percentage overall, and can proudly stand shoulder to shoulder alongside some of the greatest sporting teams in the world of any code.Much has been written about the All Blacks and their legacy, but in this one book you get the full picture the Tests, the players, the results and the history - recollecting those memorable moments and marvelling at the exploits of some of world-famous All Blacks. From the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987, when it was still an amateur game, through to their record-breaking exploits in 2016 at the height of professionalism, the All Blacks have enjoyed one of the highest levels of sporting success in the world. But the modern era is not the whole story.The New Zealand Rugby Companion fills in the essential gaps, provides the historic context and completes the total picture for all rugby lovers. Up to including the 2019.

            For a variety of reasons, Australian sport needed an uplifting, inspirational, feel-good story in 2019. The year was only little more than half over before one had well and truly arrived a" one of the best ever, in fact. Tennis star Ashleigh Barty captured the publicas imaginat...ion and admiration by not only winning a major tournament for the first time, the French Open, and ascending to the world No 1 ranking, the fi rst Australian woman to do so for 46 years, but by the humble, modest, gracious and yet iron-willed and fiercely focussed way she went about it. In all she did, she was the defi nition of the word classy. In short, she made Australia proud. Among those watching intently was one of Australiaas most experienced and respected sportswriters, Ron Reed, who decided that Bartyas breakthrough into the very top echelons of one of the nationas favourite sports needed to be recorded in forensic detail a" the wins, the quotes, the processes, the reactions of others, the team behind her, the background and the many reasons why she is such a true-blue Australian that she could never be mistaken for any other nationality. Barty: Power and Glory is the result. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Ron Reedas 50-plus years in sports journalism include decades as a columnist and feature writer for Australiaas biggest-selling daily newspaper, the Herald Sun, as well as two stints as Sports Editor of that paperas predecessor, The Herald, and one as Editor of the old Sporting Globe. His work has earned many awards and accolades, including Australian sportswriter of the year and a lifetime achievement award from Sport Australia, formerly the Australian Sports Commission. He has covered most of the worldas major sports events a" many of them multiple times a" in more than 30 countries, and is a tennis aficionado, having been a fi xture at the Australian Open as well as many Davis Cup ties. He is the author of the only book ever written about the legendary Frank Sedgman, Game Se

            Clearing Boundaries is the first ever coffee-table style book dedicated to women's cricket, and the first literary update on the history of the women's game in Australia for nearly 30 years. The project traces the strong lineage of females in cricket from the 19th century to the ...watershed 2020 T20 World Cup, told largely through the lens of the Australian Women's Cricket Team. Celebrating generations of trailblazers across five distinguishable 'eras' - from foundation to professionalism - Clearing Boundaries curates a collection of short stories covering memorable tours, matches, innings, spells and moments. The highly pictorial book presents over 200 images; many were previously inaccessible to the public, but have been brought back to life by the Bradman Museum's Holman Collection in conjunction with other private collections donated to the Museum. It also features the statistical records of every woman to represent the nation on the cricket field, and a foreword written by arguably Australia's greatest female cricketer, Belinda Clark AO.

            Anthony 'Harry' Moffitt spent more than 20 years in the SAS. His decades of service and his multiple tours in East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan made him one of the regiment's most experienced and respected figures. Alongside the SAS, Harry's other lifetime love is cricket. An impr...ovised game of backyard cricket was often the circuit-breaker Harry and his team needed after the tension of operations. Recognizing the effect of the game on his fellow soldiers, he began a tradition of organising games and matches wherever he was sent, whether it was in the mountains of East Timor with a fugitive rebel leader, or on the dusty streets of Baghdad, or in exposed Forward Operating Bases in the hills of Afghanistan. Soldiers, locals and even visiting politicians played in these spontaneous yet often bridge-building games. As part of the tradition Harry also started to take a cricket bat with him on operational tours, eleven of them in total across his career. They'd travel with him, often go outside the wire with him, and end up signed by those he met or fought alongside. These eleven bats have formed the basis for Harry's extraordinary memoir. It's a book about combat, and what it takes to serve in one of the world's most elite formations. It's a book about the toll that war takes on soldiers and their loved ones. And it's a book about the healing power of cricket, and how a game can cross boundaries and break down borders even in the most desperate of circumstances.
