El planteamiento y la programación de este libro es eminentemente defensivo, lo que no impide que se propongan ejercicios que tienen una total interacción de ataque-defensa. En esta obra se expone un léxico específico y diferenciador de los conceptos tácticos del fútbol, encaminados a la enseñanza de la táctica individual-colecitva. Dichos comentarios se complementan con una guía gráfica. El libro es, sin duda alguna, un punto de referencia para todo jugador de fútbol, tanto para el que se inicia como para el profesional, a partir del cual se procura orientar al técnico en la ejecución t en el grado de dificultad que conlleva la práctica de los principios básicos del juego, ofreciendo, además, a todos los que deseen experimentar en este campo profesional, un manual de ejercicios y formas jugadas, donde se pueden desarrollar los conceptos tácticos que el fútbol encubre. En los contenidos presentados se ha logrado interrelacionar los conceptos técnicos con los principios tácticos durante las formas jugadas. Culminando los deseos con los objetivos, este libro ayuda a cubrir un espacio útil e indispensable como obra de consulta para todos los deportes de realidad totalmente práctica. Los ejercicios dirigidos y el laborioso trabajo de representación gráfica que se completa a través de esquemas básicos defensivos, serán el armazón del éxito del sistema de juego estructurado por el entrenador. El libro está prologado por Arsenio Iglesias, entrenador nacional de fútbol. El autor, Santiago Vázquez Folgueira, ha sido profesor de la Escuela Nacional de Entrenadores de Fútbol y, actualmente, es profesor titular de fútbol en el INEFC de Barcelona.
Originally developed by Vitor Frade, at the University of Porto, Tactical Periodization is a methodology - popularized by coaches such as Jose Mourinho and Andre Villas Boas - that trains soccer players through a logical process that focuses on four moments of the game. These four moments are: Offensive Organisation, the Transition from Defence to Attack, Defensive Organisation, and the Transition from Attack to Defence. Through Tactical Periodization, the aim is to develop players to rapidly alter their on-field behaviours according to the tactical context of the match, and what actually unfolds in front of them. In turn, every training exercise focuses on at least one of the four moments, and always the coach's tactical game model of how he wants his team to play. In doing so, football players prepare and learn how best to conquer the often unpredictable matches that they encounter competitively. This book is the English language translation of the acclaimed book Periodizacion Tactica by world-renowned coach and sports science specialist Xavier Tamarit. *Important Note: What is Tactical Periodization is the translation of an academic book that examines Tactical Periodization's underlying philosophies, methodologies, and application. It covers areas such as systemic thinking, football as a complex phenomenon, and how the 'sum is greater than its parts'; it does not contain practical how-tos or drills. Candidly, it is not an 'easy' book to read, and requires a certain level of effort and concentration by the reader. However, for those who stick with it, the book provides a rewarding and high value resource for the modern football coach who wishes to understand exactly how Tactical Periodization developed, what it means for the sport, and how it can influence his or her coaching. Summary sections have been added to each original chapter to offer additional insight."
Who Knows Tomorrow
Author: Lisa Lovatt-Smith
Publisher: Weinstein Publishing
Born in Spain and raised by a struggling single mother, Lisa Lovatt-Smith became an editor at British Vogue at nineteen, the youngest in Condé Nast history. She helped launch Spanish Vogue and partied across Europe with celebrities, fashion designers, photographers, and supermodels. By her thirties, Lisa has her dream career and a glamorous life in Paris, but when her adopted daughter Sabrina is expelled from school, Lisa takes her to volunteer in a Ghanaian orphanage in the hopes of getting her back on track. What she discovers there changes both their lives for good. Appalled by the deplorable conditions she finds, Lisa moves to Ghana permanently and founds OAfrica, dedicating her personal resources to reuniting hundreds of Ghanaian children with their families and spearheading a drive to shut down corrupt orphanages. On this unforgettable journey, Lisa confronts death threats, malaria, arson, and heartbreaking poverty; she also discovers truly inspiring children trapped in limbo by a moneymaking scheme bigger than she ever imagined. Who Knows Tomorrow is the engaging, frank, and often surprisingly funny story of one amazing woman who has traveled the globe in search of meaningful connection. Although to Lisa her story will always be about the children, it’s also a touching celebration of a woman who is talented, generous, and unfailingly courageous.

Man, Play, and Games
Author: Roger Caillois, Meyer Barash
Publisher: University of Illinois Press
Play is "an occasion of pure waste: waste of time, energy, ingenuity, skill, and often of money." It is also an essential element of human social and spiritual development. In this study, Roger Caillois defines play as a voluntary activity that occurs in a pure space, isolated and protected from the rest of life. Within limits set by rules that provide a level playing field, players move toward an unpredictable outcome by responding to their opponents' actions. Caillois qualifies types of games and ways of playing, from the improvisation characteristic of children's play to the disciplined pursuit of solutions to gratuitously difficult puzzles. He also examines the means by which games become part of daily life, ultimately giving cultures their most characteristic customs and institutions.
Periodization authority Tudor Bompa and strength and conditioning expert Carlo Buzzichelli eliminate the guesswork and establish a clear path to reaching peak physical condition and gaining a competitive edge. Periodization Training for Sports includes programs and training models for 35 sports.

This book provides a comprehensive guide to the evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries commonly experienced by football (soccer) players. It will be of particular value for orthopedists and sports medicine practitioners, and will provide the information required by trainers and medical staff regarding the traumatic lesions associated with the sport. It is also anticipated that the book will assist in reducing the risk of trauma in footballers. The new edition has been revised to reflect advances in knowledge and practice and will be more valuable than ever, given that the risk of trauma continues to increase owing to the intensity and speed of modern football, the current training methods, and technical and tactical innovations. Injuries are a major adverse event during a footballer’s career, and they require appropriate medical and/or surgical treatment and rehabilitation. The overviews provided in this book will help in delivering such care.
