Book Description

In 1972, Hunter Davies wrote one of the defining sports books, The Glory Game, in which he chronicled a season from inside a leading football club -- Tottenham Hotspur. Now, three decades on, and with the Football League now the money-spinning Premiership, Ed Jones has been granted similar access all areas to the latest, and perhaps oddest recruit to the top flight: Wigan Athletic. When Hunter Davies was writing The Glory Game, Wigan were still a non-league club. For the first time in their existence, they're rubbing shoulders with the big boys, kicking off with a home game against Chelsea and finishing with an away trip to Arsenal. In between, Ed Jones will be chronicling what it is really like behind the scenes of a Premiership club -- from the players to the tea ladies, the dug out to the chairman's helicopter.

All That Glitters by Ed Jones All That Glitters, Hardback (October 2009)

Like many men of the nineteenth century, Joseph Francis Ladue (1854-1901) sought to rise from humble origins to a position of wealth - by way of the motherlode. His quest took him to the dusty, rowdy boomtowns of Deadwood and Tombstone and the unexplored territory of Canada's Yukon. This title tells the life story of this northern pioneer.
