Jack Dorsey says the best investment he ever made cost him nothing . Jack Dorsey's daily commute is a reasonable five miles but it takes him over an hour to get to work. That's because he walks. He uses the time to listen to music and audio books or simply to think and draw inspiration from the streets of San Francisco. It's a very clearing time," Dorsey told CNN Money. I want to put as much unexpected potential in front of me because I think something that you don't plan will always make you think differently.

When we think of the game’s origins, images of cowboys and saloon bars are invariably conjured. The time at which betting was introduced into the game would therefore mark the true birth of poker as we know it today. The game’s roots are in reality a lot more obscure. One of the first recorded instances of a game resembling poker did indeed come from America, yet there are those who believe that poker, as developed in the States, descended directly from As-Nas; a Persian-derived card game played across Asia. In this case, there is indeed evidence that the trend of betting on cards arises from mid-18th century Mississippi, where gambling was a common pass time on riverboats.

I first heard about this book when I saw Dr. Powell on ESPN's NFL Countdown. He was interviewed about a segment on the New England Patriots as they were going for the consecutive win record. The segment was about the team's methodical play on the field mirrored by their methodical use of cliches in the lockeroom.

I immediately looked for the book, but learned that it was not yet out. Once I finally found it I was ecstatic. I am an avid fan and one that really appreciates sports lingo. This book had me laughing and smiling from cover to cover. I like how Powell has the cliches grouped into a number of different clever categories and the cliche quiz is a real trip.

I recommend this book to any sports fan. I would even recommend to coaches for lockeroom speeches.

All in all, Powell left it all on the field, gave 110 percent and hit a home run!!!!!

My husband and I really enjoyed reading through this book. As hockey fans, we especially enjoyed that section. We've been missing the NHL season and it was great to get back in the game again. I would highly recommend this book for any other NHL fans out there experiencing withdrawl symtoms!

Let's face it, this book is not great literature, it's a list. Of sports cliches. And, if you're amused by all things sports, as I am, you'll like this book. It arranges them by sport and other topics (business, money, parts of the body) and I got a chuckle out of it. I admit I'd never heard some of them before, but most of them feel "like home." My young son enjoyed it as he wasn't familiar with a lot of the cliches and we spent an afternoon going thru the book together.

I bought this book as a gift for a friend who is a "sports nut". He loved it. He said it took him back to his youth when he first became aware of how common cliches were. He sat down with his wife and had fun explaining what many of the cliches meant and his recollections about where they came from. I will remember this book and purchase it again for other sports fans I know.

My husband saw this in Sports Illustrated and circled it. I ordered it for him for Christmas and he loved it! He's a big sports nut and had lots of fun sharing the cliches with his brothers over Christmas dinner. It may not be great literature but it sure "hit a home run!" Haha!

Just as the sports cliche "they came in well prepared" goes, I'm gonna be ready for any lull in the game. My friends and me can use the book to see how many basketball cliches have been used already in the game.
