Twelve Yards Summary:

An all-encompassing look at the penalty kick, soccer’s all-or-nothing play—its legendary moments and the secrets to its success No stretch of grass has been the site of more glory or heartbreak in the world of sports than the few dozen paces between goalkeeper and penalty kicker in soccer. In theory, it’s simple: place the ball beyond a single defender and secure a place in history. But once the chosen players make the lonely march from their respective sides of the pitch, everything changes, all bets are off, and anything can happen. Drawing from the hard-won lessons of legendary games, in-depth statistical analysis, expert opinion, and the firsthand experience of coaches and players from around the world, journalist Ben Lyttleton offers insight into the diverse attitudes, tactics, and techniques that separate success from failure in one of the highest-pressure situations sports has to offer.

Soccer Scoop Summary:

Mac is the best goalie on his soccer team -- and he's not afraid to let everyone know it. Then somebody on the school newspaper creates a new comic strip that caricatures Mac and his performance on and off the field. Mac wants to put a stop to it, but no one seems to know who the cartoonist is. He thinks it must be someone on the soccer team itself, because the strip is too tightly connected to the team for it to be an outsider. But his suspicions lead to one dead end after another. Can he discover who the artist is before the comic strip gets out of hand?

On Penalties Summary:

'Score and few will remember; miss and no one will forget' Talking to some of the game's most successful players and managers, the question the book seeks to address is simple: can England overcome their fear of the penalty? The penalty shoot-out is the greatest set piece of sporting drama ever conceived. Cruel, arbitrary, tortuous and unfair, it has also presented the England football team with a new and infinitely more punishing manner in which to lose. Three times in the past decade the nation has sat on the edge of its collective sofa and watched the seemingly inevitable unfold as Stuart Pearce, Chris Waddle, Gareth Southgate, Paul Ince and David Batty have selected the wrong shots in the lottery of international championship shoot-outs. Except it's not a lottery. There is an art to scoring penalties, which calls upon a unique combination of physical prowess and psychological strength. In the corridor of truth that leads from the penalty spot to the goal-line, a succession of English footballers have had to confront not only the opposing goalkeeper but the hopes and dreams of fans and fellow countrymen and, of course, themselves.

Ice Hockey Rules Summary:

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 28. Chapters: Overtime, Penalty, National Hockey League rules, Penalty shot, Goal, Ice hockey rink, Penalty box, Short handed, Icing, Offside, Face-off, Breakaway, Rover, Halifax Rules, Delay of game, Goal line, Goaltender interference, Roughing. Excerpt: Overtime is a method of determining the winner and loser of an ice hockey match when the scores are tied after regulation. The two main methods are the overtime period (commonly referred to as overtime) and the shootout. Overtime periods are extra periods beyond the third regulation period during a game, where normal hockey rules apply. Although in the past, full-length overtime periods were played, overtimes today are sudden death, meaning that the game ends immediately when a player scores a goal. For the 1983-84 season, the NHL introduced a regular season overtime period of five minutes, compared to the twenty minutes of regulation periods. If the five minute overtime period ended with no scoring, the game was a tie (The World Hockey Association had used a 10-minute regular season overtime period, as had the NHL prior to World War II). In 1987-88 and since 1995, the American Hockey League has awarded teams one point in the standings for an overtime loss (OTL). In 1998, the AHL introduced a rule where teams will play the five minute overtime period with four skaters and a goaltender, rather than at full strength (five skaters), except in two-man advantage situations. In a two-man advantage situation, the team with the advantage will play with five skaters. The rule was popular and adopted by the NHL and ECHL the next season. Mats Sundin, Sergei Fedorov, Jaromir Jagr and Patrik Elia share the record for most regular season overtime goals with 15 each. In the Stanley Cup playoffs, the teams are at full strength (five skaters, barring penalties), there isn't a shootout, ...
