Football's biggest stars, with special emphasis on how nice guys finish first! Chock-full of today's NFL heroes, Football Stars is the ultimate kids' guide to America's favorite game. Over 20 of the NFL's best and brightest players are profiled, while a 14-page football primer tells young readers everything they need to know to become experts of the game. Being great at passing, receiving, tackling or kicking is just one facet of the players featured in Football Stars. Some stars, like Aaron Rodgers and Antonio Brown, show how hard work and a will to succeed have propelled them to the top, while others, like Drew Brees, do their best to give back to those in need, challenging the old adage that "nice guys finish last". Accompanying each player's remarkable story is a unique graphic poster that highlights a theme from his profile. Lighting up smiles by day and stadiums by night, the athletes featured in Football Stars are shining examples of what can happen if you focus on your goals and make the right choices.

Freestyle tricks for the more than 5 million American snowboarders who hit the slopes every season. Freestyle Snowboarding is the avid boarder's guide to the skills and stunts that earned medals for Olympic superstars Shaun White and Hannah Teter. Each technique or trick is shown in a "slow-motion" sequence of terrific step-by-step photos. Better than a brief 1-2-3 sequence, this visual presentation clearly shows the subtle changes in form that can turn a poorly executed maneuver into a precise move that ends with a perfect square landing. The book begins with a review of the basic skills, which is followed by more than 60 tricks in four sections: Flat-tricks Halfpipe Straight jump Rails and boxes Nine champion boarders demonstrate the tricks and techniques in sequential photographs, and the authors give tips on the takeoff, airtime and landing, as well as variations and how to fix common mistakes. Freestyle Snowboarding is simply the best instruction book on snowboarding tricks.

How to master amazing freestyle soccer tricks. Freestyle soccer is the art of juggling a soccer ball by using feet, knees, chest, shoulders and head while simultaneously performing creatively skillful moves to keep the ball airborne. Young soccer players everywhere copy the freestyle skills of heroes like Ronaldo and Beckham. Freestyle hit big after Nike's Joga Bonito ("play beautiful") ad campaign, which featured soccer icons executing amazing freestyle tricks. In rapid succession YouTube uploaded videos of youth doing tricks, and XBox and Playstation 2® released freestyle soccer games. Now the sport is recognized with a governing body, there are freestyle shoes, and organized competitions take place worldwide. In Freestyle Soccer Tricks, world-renowned soccer juggler Sean D'Arcy starts with the basics and moves on to impressive kicks, flick-ups, rolls and catches. Fortunately for the inexperienced, many of these tricks can be done without knowing how to juggle the ball. Hundreds of color photos show how each trick is done, with "Common Problem" and "Tip" sidebars providing further instructions. Colorful, portable and designed for its youth market, Freestyle Soccer Tricks meets the increasing demand by participants of this rapidly growing sport.
