Above the Clouds: How I Carved My Own Path to the Top of the World by Kilian Jornet

From climbing the highest mountain in the Pyrenees at the age of 5 to scaling Mount Everest unaided twice in one week at 3, Kilian Jornet has lived an extreme life, and in his memoir, Above the Clouds, he chronicles the ups and downs of his journey. Told in a humble voice, Jornet’s memoir is an engrossing read for amateur adventurers and those who are enticed by the concept of sky running but are unaware of what it actually entails. — Aric

One Life by Megan Rapinoe

After US soccer star Megan Rapinoe’s game-winning goals in the 2019 Women’s World Cup captivated the world, Rapinoe has gone on to engage women (and men) everywhere with her brilliant leadership in promoting equal pay, racial justice, and LGBTQ+ rights, and through her straight talk to President Trump on an international stage. Now, in her memoir One Life, she chronicles how her conservative California upbringing, her role as the first woman soccer player to come out, and the internal reckoning that called her to take action for equality allowed her to fully use her place at the center of the world’s stage as a force for good. A perfect gift for every strong person in your life. — Casey

24: Life Stories and Lessons from the Say Hey Kid by Willie Mays, with John Shea

The legendary Willie Mays, known for both his Hall of Fame baseball career and his charitable work and generosity in spending time with young players, has given us yet another gift with this wonderful memoir. In 24 chapters (to correspond with his uniform number), the baseball legend shares stories from his life as talks about his philosophy on sports. As a huge Giants fan, I have heard for many years about the joy of listening to Mays tell tales about his career and share his advice about life and have always wished I could sit in on one of those conversations. This book is certainly the next best thing.

Intangibles Unlocking the Science and Soul of Team Chemistry by Joan Ryan

Team chemistry makes or breaks a team. That’s my takeaway from sports columnist Joan Ryan’s fascinating new book, Intangibles. Inspired by the 1989 San Francisco Giants’ improbable run to the World Series, Ryan spent the last 10 years looking at all kinds of players, from superstars to journeymen, to uncover the archetypal roles they serve on their teams: the sparkplug, the sage, the kid, the enforcer, the buddy, the jester, the warrior. The chemistry that comes from that magical mix of players who inspire, support, and believe in each other can’t manufacture talent, but it does maximize whatever talent a team has. And you’re not going to go far without it.

Revolutions How Women Changed the World on Two Wheels by Hannah Ross

This unique book rather defies description: part introduction to the history of bicycles and cycling, part history of feminist moments and movements through the lens of cycling, part history of women’s cycling in the Western world, and a dizzying panoply and who’s who of remarkable historical and present-day women. Hannah Ross guides us through it all with clear prose, wry wit, and a passion for the sport and for righting the inequalities that still plague it.

Why We Swim by Bonnie Tsui

Through the vehicle of swimming, about which she is passionate, Tsui explores the origins of our relationship to water, tells story after story of the role of swimming across cultures and history, discusses aspects of racism and other forms of exclusion in access to swimming, and writes of the seductiveness of water and being able to dive deeply and exuberantly into it, move through it with strength and ease—relative to our funny, nonamphibious bodies—and respect the powerfulness and impersonalness of water at once. —A.P.
