Summary

"If you breathe and have a pulse, you NEED this book." -Cody Lundin Cody  Lundin, director of the Aboriginal Living Skills School in Prescott,  Arizona, shares his own brand of wilderness wisdom in this highly  anticipated new book on commonsense, modern survival skills for the  backcountry, the backyard, or the highway. It is the ultimate book on  how to stay alive-based on the principal of keeping the body's core  temperature at a lively 98.6 degrees. In his entertaining and  informative style, Cody stresses that a human can live without food for  weeks, and without water for about three days or so. But if the body's  core temperature dips much below or above the 98.6 degree mark, a person  can literally die within hours. It is a concept that many don't take  seriously or even consider, but knowing what to do to maintain a safe  core temperature when lost in a blizzard or in the desert could save  your life. Lundin delivers the message with wit, rebellious humor, and  plenty of backcountry expertise. Cody Lundin and his Aboriginal  Living Skills School have been featured in dozens of national and  international media sources, including Dateline NBC, CBS News, USA  Today, The Donny and Marie Show, and CBC Radio One in Canada, as well as  on the cover of Backpacker magazine. When not teaching for his own  school, he is an adjunct faculty member at Yavapai College and a faculty  member at the Ecosa Institute. Cody is the only person in Arizona  licensed to catch fish with his hands, and lives in a passive solar  earth home sixty miles from Prescott, Arizona.

    Love it or hate it, we are all teachers. Whether walking clients through a new program, guiding an audience through a novel proposition, or helping our children to kick a soccer ball, nearly every day we work to disseminate knowledge and wisdom to others. The problem is that very few of us have ever been taught how to teach! Drawing on Jared Cooney Horvath’s nearly 15 years of experience conducting brain research at prominent universities, teaching students from 10 to 80 years of age, and working closely with organizations and schools across 4 continents, Stop Talking, Start Influencing outlines 12 scientific principles of how people learn. The result is a book that shows readers how to impart their knowledge to others in a manner that sticks with and truly influences them — regardless of the situation or circumstance. For every business leader sick of repeating themselves ad nauseam to colleagues and clients, for every coach tired of endlessly drilling athletes without seeing meaningful improvement, for every entrepreneur who’s had enough of pouring their heart into presentations only to see no lasting impact among the audience … it’s time to stop talking and start influencing!

    Dorothee Haering is a photographer and owner of the graphics and marketing agency "bildhaft", in Munich, Germany. Golf has accompanied she from her cradle, and most of her family has the bug too. Her grandfather practiced enthusiastically on a chipping green in his garden, and her father, a successful team player, regularly took her with him on the golf course when she was a child. At the weekends she was a proud caddy and accompanied "her players" throughout the tournaments and also briefly took part in junior training. Ever since she saw Jack Niklaus play golf 1972 in Munich she knew: she wanted to become a Golf Professional. Later, life had other plans for her and there followed an involuntary golf-intermission lasting thirty-eight years until the golf addiction broke out again with a vengeance. Her goal for her (second) golf career: she wanted to break 80.
    
    In the book project "Move your Game", Dorothee Haering has gathered together the information that she would have liked to have possessed at the beginning of her own golf career. It would have made following her plan to a single handicap more efficient.

    The NFL championship game that changed the history of football: a New York Times bestseller by the author of Black Hawk Down.   Yankee Stadium, December 28, 1958. What was about to go down on this Sunday evening in front of sixty-four thousand fans and forty-five million home viewers—the largest viewership ever assembled for a live televised event—was the first sudden death overtime in NFL history. This one battle between the league’s best offense, the Baltimore Colts, and the best defense, the New York Giants, would propel professional football from a moderately popular pastime into America’s favorite sport. On the field and roaming the sidelines were seventeen future Hall of Famers, including Colts stars Johnny Unitas, Raymond Berry, and Gino Marchetti; and Giants greats Frank Gifford, Sam Huff; and assistant coaches Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry. But they were opposing teams in more ways than one. It was a contest between Baltimore blue-collars, many of whom worked off-season selling insurance or taking shifts at Bethlehem Steel, and the trendy New York glamour boys of splashy magazine ads and TV commercials, who mingled with the likes of politicians, Broadway stars, and even Ernest Hemingway. Mark Bowden “dives into the trenches of the 1958 NFL Championship game” for a riveting play-by-play account, the stories behind the key players, the effect it had on a country in transition, and on today’s NFL (Entertainment Weekly). “Bring[s] the contest so alive that you find yourself almost wondering . . . years later, how it will turn out in the end.” —The New York Times   “The Best Game Ever is sure to become an instant Sacred Text.” —Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post
