The first in-depth biography of one of the most talented and infamous legends to play in the National Football League - the life and times of pro football´s first bad boy, famed Oakland Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler. Ken ´´The Snake´´ Stabler was the embodiment of the original Men in Black - the freewheeling, hard-hitting Oakland Raiders. The league´s first swashbuckling pass thrower, the mythical southpaw Southerner famous for come-from-behind drives late in the game, Stabler led the Raiders to their first Super Bowl championship in 1977. In an era dominated by gentleman quarterbacks like Roger Staubach and Bob Griese, this 1974 NFL MVP, four-time Pro Bowler, and Super Bowl champion was an iconoclast who partied as hard as he played and lived life unapologetically on his own - not the NFL´s - terms. Though Stabler´s legacy is larger than life, there has never before been an exclusive account of him - until now. Snake goes deep under the surface of Stabler´s persona to reveal a man who, despite his penchant for partying and debauchery, was committed to winning and being the best player he could be. From his college days playing for Bear Bryant at Alabama to his years with the Raiders under coach John Madden, his broadcasting career to his death in 2015 and the revelation that he suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, known as CTE, Snake probes the myriad facets of Stabler´s life on and off the field to tell his complete story and explores how his legacy and the culture and times that pivotally shaped it continue to impact football today. 1.

Shireen and her Friends:Pages from the life of a persian cat Gordon Stables, Harrison Weir
At 13, George Stable still hasn´t made his mark on the world. Oh, he plays the guitar and sings a little. And he appeared on television for six whole seconds once. A couple of years ago, he even wrote a sort of book, called The Teddy Bear Habit. But nothing really exciting has happened to him. But now, it looks as if his big chance has finally come. This agent of his, Woody Woodward, who discovered him during his six-second TV career, has come up with a plan to make him a hot new guitar-playing teenage star - ´´George Stable, The Boy Next Door´´. Never mind that George has spent his entire life in Greenwich Village, which is not exactly where you´d find your typical ´´Boy Next Door´´. As Woody says, it´s the image that counts. Of course, there are a few problems to be ironed out. His pop isn´t too hot on the idea, and is packing George off to stay with his uncle and creepy cousin Sinclair in upstate New York, while he spends a month in Paris. And Woody´s bosses at the record company still have to buy the idea. There´s this strange, bug-eyed guy everyone calls Superman who has to give the go-ahead.... 1. Language: English.

Being a stable lass is probably one of the hardest jobs in the country, and yet for Gemma Hogg it is the most rewarding. She works in the beautiful Yorkshire market town of Middleham, and if her colleagues are occasionally challenging, then the horses are downright astonishing. Now, in Stable Lass, she takes us into the closed world of a top racing yard, from the elation of having several winners in one day to the almost indescribable grief of losing a horse. Like most stable lads and lasses, Gemma arrived in her yard as a teenager fresh out of racing college and had to cope with living away from home for the first time, as well as adapting to the brutal long hours, backbreaking work and often treacherous weather. She describes falling in love with Polo Venture, the first racehorse in her care, the pure exhilaration of riding him on Middleham Gallops for the first time and what happens when a horse takes against you, from the growling gelding Valiant Warrior to the potentially lethal Broadway Boy. She brings to life the characters around the yard, from straight-talking boss Micky Hammond to the jockeys starving themselves to make weight, the wealthy owners and the other stable lads and lasses who come from a range of different places and backgrounds. Stable Lass by Gemma Hogg is a unique look into the world of horse racing filled with heartwarming stories and amazing thoroughbreds - some lovable, some cantankerous, all impressive. 1.
