            The Talent Trap: Free Yourself and Thrive Amid the Competition and Chaos of Youth Sport (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            In youth sport, the word talent is everywhere. We overuse it and we misuse it. This is a treacherous trap. When we fall into the talent trap, we give immense value to an inconsistent and unreliable predictor of success. We confuse people with conflicting ideas, and we enable a... misdirected, biased process to determine who should and shouldn't be supported. This has a damaging ripple effect on the perceptions, identity, motivations and expectations of young athletes, and those around them. This book exposes common everyday actions that seem harmless, but which are wreaking havoc. Whether you are a parent or coach, programme manager or CEO, it will shed light on how we can all do things differently and guide you to lead change. To thrive in youth sport and give young people the best chance of ongoing success into adulthood, we must free ourselves from the talent trap and re-focus on the things that really matter.

            A dramatic, gripping account of the rise and fall of the notorious business tycoon Robert Maxwell from the acclaimed author of A Very English Scandal - available for pre-order now In February 1991, Robert Maxwell made a triumphant entrance into Manhattan harbour on board his yach...t, the Lady Ghislaine. He had come to complete his purchase of the ailing New York Daily News. Crowds lined the quayside to watch his arrival. Taxi drivers stopped their cabs to shake his hand, children asked for his autograph and when Maxwell went to dine in the most fashionable Chinese restaurant in Manhattan, all the diners gave him a standing ovation. 10 months later, he disappeared off the same yacht and was found dead in the water. Within a few days, Maxwell was being reviled as the embodiment of greed and unscrupulousness. No one had ever fallen so far and so quickly. What went so wrong? How did a man who had once laid such store on the importance of ethics and good behaviour become reduced to a bloated, amoral wreck? 'Preston is a natural storyteller' The Times
