It's no Moneyball, but it's still Michael Lewis. Here, he takes his usual market-based approach to professional football...but this is more than an analysis of the position of left tackle and the relative value of various positions. It's a book about race, class, and America's love of sport. If you've always secretly wanted to be a football fan, this is the book for you.
Lady Diana Spencer died in 1735, aged 25. She was tall, fair haired, charismatic, beautiful, sympathetic, adored by those who knew her... The similarities between seventeenth-and-twentieth century Diana Spencers can be quite eerie at times. Both lost their mothers at six - one to death, one to divorce - and both were connected to the Prince of Wales of their times. The first Diana became Diana, Duchess of Bedford, while the second, of course, became Princess of Wales. In the years of the first Diana was built the structure that now houses the Diana, Princess of Wales memorial museum at Althorp. Both were raised among the royal children of their time. One suffered from bulimia, while the other suffered a similar illness in the last years of her life and became tragially slender. Both died very young, and at the passing of the first her lead-lined coffin was placed on a gun carriage and taken through the streets to the sounds of crying and bells tolling. Quite interesting, well written and wonderfully researched - and, as I said, it can be quite eerie.
