Spell-binding Spells: Cricket’s most magnificent bowling spells

Notion Press
Free sample

Spell-binding Spells is a book for everyone who loves cricket. It is about stunning spells—those few overs that occur rarely in cricket, when bowlers weave magic and batsmen are mesmerized.
What did the stunning bowling spells of Anil Kumble, Narendra Hirwani, Ravichandran Ashwin, Padmakar Shivalkar, and Yuzvendra Chahal achieve that Kapil Dev’s career best spell could not?
Curtly Ambrose and Sarfraz Nawaz, 14-years apart, bowled identical deadly spells against the same opposition taking 7 wickets for 1 run. Who were the hapless victims?
Why did Gary Gilmour of Australia with an ODI bowling average of 10.31 and Clarrie Grimmett of Australia after taking 13 wickets in a Test in two magnificent spells, never play for their respective countries again?
Spell-binding Spells looks at 50 of the most magnificent bowling spells in the history of cricket and answers some of these questions.
VVS Laxman says: “This book is a tribute to bowlers, a breed that has never profited from the benefit of the doubt in a sport whose rules have historically always favoured batsmen. This nice little treatise is a reminder that we must ensure that the history of this game continues to get passed on from one generation to the next.”

The "Country Life" Library of Sport presents Cricket, a compendium of essays on the topic edited by Horace G. Hutchinson. Although there are many books on the topic of the sport of cricket, this book hopes to include a wide range of materials from a vast array of individuals never seen before in print. In addition, the book also boasts a wide range of illustrations never previously compiled in a single volume.

The book begins with an interesting preface by the editor explaining the unique content and approach this text takes to cricket (in comparison with other compilations), why this text is ideal for those who are interested in the topic of cricket, and to offer his own credentials as editor. Then the book delves into the history of cricket, explaining major events and points of order to the reader. The beginning of cricket as we know it is explored along with the basic field positions. The writing continues into specific cricket techniques such as batting, bowling, and fielding. In addition to exploring technique specifics, the book also reviews both amateur players and seasoned professionals in the sport. As the sport of cricket grew in popularity it began to spread across the world and Cricket discusses this phenomenon and explores the world of cricket in England, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand. Lastly, this book discusses the different types of cricket: country cricket, village cricket, university cricket, and foreign cricket.

By the end of the book, a reader unfamiliar with this topic will certainly have a very complete and complex comprehension of this timeless sport. Ultimately, this is a book full of cricket knowledge for readers interested in a more expansive and in depth exploration of the topic.

Intrinsic Bowling - Beyond "The Zone" Into The Inner Bowler Dennis Hooker and Palmer Fallgren -  For Beginning to Advanced Bowlers. Dennis and Palmer have taken the mental game to a new, more
 workable level - that of the Inner Bowler. Past what many have called "The Zone" - into a deeper, more satisfying space.

 Palmer was Olympic Bowling Coach for Team USA , a pro on tour and TV, and a consultant for Brunswick. Dennis is a retired counselor, hypnotherapist, psychologist and writer of
books used by more than 1 million youth. He now knocks over 20 - 40 more pins per game than before Let It Go!  

Each of us knows - intuitively - how-to Let Go! of the ball in a way to get strikes. The wonderful thing about this program is the simplicity of it! It is easy to learn - and very enjoyable and satisfying to "turn it over" to something inside that knows better how-to bowl.

"Palmer Falgren's LET IT GO is a most interesting read. I used it in my advance classes. A great supplemental read to the classics I refered to in another post (Allen's THE MENTAL GAME; Hinitz's FOCUS ON BOWLING; Lasser, Borden, and Edward's BOWLING: The Handbook of Bowling Psychology). This book is different as it reflects the psychology of bowling's most successful hippie, Palmer Falgren. It's functional theme is from the blending of Eastern ( Buddhist/ Taoist) psychology/ philosophy with American naturalism that was derived from the American Counter Culture movement starting with Jack Kerouac's ON THE ROAD Beatnick philosophy/psychology. It is enjoyable and fun."- Gary Parsons
