Summary

Over the past few years, perhaps due to an increase in work and family commitments, there has been a noticeable rise in the number of golfers interested in playing nine-hole courses. Although there are close to eight thousand such courses worldwide, how do golfers determine which are the best ones to play? In The Finest Nines, golf writer and historian Anthony Pioppi highlights the twenty-five finest nine-hole courses in North America and details how to play each one. Some of the courses featured include:







•	Whitinsville Golf Club—Whitinsville, Massachusetts 



•	Sweetens Cove Golf Club—South Pittsburg, Tennessee 



•	Birchwood Country Club—Westport, Connecticut 



•	LivingStone Golf Course—Calgary, Alberta



•	Aetna Springs Golf Course—Pope Valley, California



•	And many more!







This book also includes an interview with course designer and architect Mike Nuzzo about designing a nine-hole golf course in the modern era as well as profiles of courses that have a non-traditional number of holes. The Finest Nines is the perfect gift for the avid golfer who does not have the time to play a full eighteen holes!

    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.

    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.

    This Step Home - Simple Guide to...

    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.
