FRANCE WINS!!! The World Cup is over and we have a new champion. For the first time since 1986, the US didn’t even make it through the qualifying rounds to play in the World Cup, so what are the chances that the US Men’s National Team can win it all? Sports writer Phil West’s new book I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN takes stock of the US Men’s National Team at this critical junction for the program, examines where we are now, and projects the team’s future trajectory. It may be four years until the next World Cup, but don’t wait to get your copy to read up on what went wrong—and what needs to go right for the US ahead of 2022—it’s in stores now!

Please see below a message from The Overlook Press and @duck_books Duckworth. If you’d like to share a memory of Peter, please comment below.
_____________________________________________
With heavy hearts, we announce that our president and co-founder, Peter Mayer, has passed away this morning, May 11th, from complications relating to amyloidosis at the age of 82. Peter died at his home in SoHo, in the company of friends and family.
Peter was a larger-than-life character, an editor of great passion and insight, as well as a deeply loving father, grandfather, and friend. Over his legendary, six-decade career in book publishing—which included nineteen years spent as the CEO of Penguin Books—Peter had a profound influence on several generations of authors and publishers, a legacy that is sure to endure. But perhaps his most beloved publishing project was The Overlook Press, the independent publisher that he founded with his father, Alfred Mayer, and ran for nearly fifty years.
Though he had the tough business acumen to helm multinational companies, Peter was a deeply curious and profoundly cultured man, who always had a story to share and a lesson to impart. His passing is a huge loss to the publishing industry as a whole, and we will miss him terribly.
—The Overlook Press and Duckworth Publishers, May 11, 2018
