Summary

The Daring Book for Girls is the manual for everything that girls need to know—and that doesn't mean sewing buttonholes! Whether it's female heroes in history, secret note-passing skills, science projects, friendship bracelets, double dutch, cats cradle, the perfect cartwheel or the eternal mystery of what boys are thinking, this book has it all. But it's not just a guide to giggling at sleepovers—although that's included, of course! Whether readers consider themselves tomboys, girly-girls, or a little bit of both, this book is every girl's invitation to adventure.

    Walking meditation has been practiced for centuries in many parts of the world. Some practices are strict and ritualized, others more free and easy. 
      
    In “This Step Home”, writing directly from his half-century of meditation practice, Jeff Falconer provides step-by-step  instruction in a simple and accessible style of walking meditation. The everyday act of walking, along with a relaxed awareness of one’s breath, one’s body in motion, and one’s surroundings, can quickly reward the mindful walker with deep calm, clarity and renewed harmony with the natural world. Walking meditation can be enjoyed in a single room, on a mountain trail, or on a busy city street. Cultivating this easy discipline can transform such common tasks as walking the aisles of a store, walking the halls at work, or standing in line at the bank. 
      
    Inspired at every turn of his meditative path to simplify and distill his practice down to the essentials, Falconer has developed a non-denominational approach, wherein no new beliefs need to be added and no existing beliefs shed. While many beneficial forms of meditation are connected to larger systems of religious or philosophical thought, it is Falconer’s experience that meditation can be quite satisfying with no such affiliations. 
      
    Short and sweet, this booklet can be read in a day, or opened at random to a page or paragraph for inspiration. It will fit easily into pocket, purse or backpack, and is an excellent companion for any ambulatory adventure. For both beginning and experienced meditators, or for folks who are merely curious and considering a practice of mindfulness, “This Step Home” will provide valuable insight and encouragement, in a friendly voice free of dogma or hierarchy. 
      
    “This Step Home” is intended to be a breath of fresh air, and it is.

    Barry Stone, author of 1001 Walks You Must Experience Before You Die, delves into some of the lesser-known aspects of the world's most famous – and not-quite-famous-yet – trails.
     
    The perfect accompaniment to practical guidebooks, Stone relates how slings and carabiners kept him from falling headlong off the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and reports on the progress of the continental-wide monster, the Trans Canada Trail, gaps in which are still being filled by countless grass-roots communities.
     
    With walks that will appeal to everyone regardless of ability, The 50 Greatest Walks of the World includes British classics such as the Pennine Way, Offa's Dyke Path, and the Old Man of Hoy as well as  personal favourites such as Italy's Cinque Terre Classic and the Isle of Skye's Trotternish Ridge, one of Britain's finest ridge traverses with almost 2,500m of ascents. Whether it's a climb, a stroll, or a life-changing slog, this book has the walk for you.

    Yang 24-Step Tàijíquan is one of the most widely-practiced Tàijíquan forms in the world today, and the form that most people first learn. Gentle enough to be suitable for the elderly, yet challenging enough to stretch even the most experienced practitioner, it is also one of the most accessible and rewarding. 
    
    In his new book, James Drewe provides a comprehensive and detailed explication of the postures and movements of the form. For each, he describes exactly how the weight flows, how to use the hands, how to move the limbs, and how to relax into the movement, clearly explaining each step with the aid of foot patterns and photographs. Sections on the internal aspects of Tàijíquan, descriptions of the subtle variations that may be made when performing certain movements, and even instructions on how to fit the movements to music are also included. 
    
    This comprehensive guide to Yang 24-Step Tàijíquan is an invaluable resource for taiji practitioners at all levels, including beginners, as well as taiji instructors, and students of other martial arts.

    If you want to win the war against fat, all you really need to focus on is building lean muscle tissue, in addition to eating a healthy diet.  
    Adding lean muscle to your body is a great way to burn fat because a pound of muscle utilizes nearly 75 -150 calories a day.  
    In this book you will find 15 proven and effective exercises including: 
    - Lower Body Resistance Exercises 
    - Upper Body Resistance Exercises 
    - Abdominal Exercises 
    - Yoga 
    - Pilates 
    - Suggested Number of Repetitions for Each Exercise 
    When you focus on building lean muscle tissue, the additional muscles use additional energy. The additional muscles also raise your resting metabolic rate and the amount of calories your body burns. 
    Several different types of exercises are reviewed in the book from lower body and upper body resistant exercises using the resistance band to abdominal exercises.  
    The book also reviews some wonderful Yoga and Pilates exercises, which are also good stress relievers. Commit to a regular exercise program, and try these exercises out to see what you like.  
    There are many resources out there if you want to explore some of these programs in more detail. 
    By varying your workout routine and incorporating these easy exercises into your program, you will have a formula for success. Find something you love to do, and do it with consistency, dedication, and commitment.  Exercise doesn’t have to be drudgery, and as a matter of fact, it can even be fun.
