'If you like horses, feel good stories or most likely both, then Race To My Dream is a must read. I defy anyone not to shed a tear or two as Steven and his beloved Alexander fulfill their ambitions of competing in a race. It would takes ages to describe all emotions I felt reading this beautifully told story but what is for sure is that I felt much better for the experience. You will too.'
Tom Segal - The Racing Post
A middle-aged man, two wonderful horses... one impossible dream.
Bumbling hobby rider Steven Wright is the Mr Bean of the equestrian world. He even puts the saddle on back to front! But he dreams of flying round a cross-country course on a fast and powerful steed. And when he meets his steeplechasing hero, Mister McGoldrick, he is inspired to find a racehorse of his own. Pure chance brings Adelphi Warrior into his life. The big chestnut thoroughbred's 'uncle' won the Grand National, but he has failed on the racetrack and is on the scrapheap at six years old. But to Steven, who turned to horse riding in his late forties as therapy for bankruptcy, a broken marriage and a drink problem, he is the opportunity of a lifetime...
Race To My Dream is an uplifting tale of love, hope and the will to win through against all the odds.

Legendary coach John Wooden is best known for his basketball success with the UCLA Bruins. Named the Greatest Coach of the 20th Century, his inspiring teachings earned him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Yet long after Wooden retired from coaching, he continued to make a tremendous impact on both youth and adults - at summer camp.
In Camp With Coach Wooden, author Greg Hayes recalls the gentle power of watching a legend at work. Hayes witnessed the beloved coach mentor, mold, teach, and inspire young players and coaches of all ages, leaving a legacy that seeped into the future of all those he encountered.
Filled with timeless basketball and life wisdom from Coach Wooden himself, this recollection of those summer days reveals a strong and steady leader, as well as a humble hero who did not disappoint.
