Summary

"Hand a person a custom made rod," says expert rod maker Dale P. Clemens, "and in almost every instance one of the first things he looks at is the decorative thread work," because a handsome rod is more desirable to own and fish. Clemens guides his readers through the organizational process of threading, illustrates the uses of patterns and replicas, explains how to wrap and weave, and gives his personal tips on how to make every rod "a never ending kaleidoscope of form, shape and color." Offering a sound introduction to the essentials of thread work on round surfaces and more than one hundred rod art patterns suitable for both advanced hobbyists and professionals, Custom Rod Thread Art is the authoritative work on the subject.Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

    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.

    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.
