Summary

In A. D. 70, the Roman commander Titus marched through Palestine, leveling the once beautiful city of Jerusalem. For Samah, a young Samaritan woman caught inside Titus's siege wall, it was the beginning of three years of suffering with other residents of the holy city. Now, though, having unwittingly saved the life of a dog belonging to a powerful Roman tribune, Samah finds herself bound for Rome as the dog owner's slave. Did Jehovah send this dog simply to help Samah reach an arrogant tribune with the truth of His Word? Or could there be more to their unusual relationship?

    A father’s moving memoir of cystic fibrosis “captures a brave child’s legacy as well as the continuing fight against the genetic disease” (TheNew York Times). In 1971 a girl named Alex was born with cystic fibrosis, a degenerative genetic lung disease. Although health-care innovations have improved the life span of CF patients tremendously over the last four decades, the illness remains fatal. Given only two years to live by her doctors, the imaginative, excitable, and curious little girl battled through painful and frustrating physical-therapy sessions twice daily, as well as regular hospitalizations, bringing joy to the lives of everyone she touched. Despite her setbacks, brave Alex was determined to live life like a typical girl—going to school, playing with her friends, traveling with her family. Ultimately, however, she succumbed to the disease in 1980 at the age of eight. Award-winning author Frank Deford, celebrated primarily as a sportswriter, was also a budding novelist and biographer at the time of his daughter’s birth. Deford kept a journal of Alex’s courageous stand against the disease, documenting his family’s struggle to cope with and celebrate the daily fight she faced. This book is the result of that journal.Alex relives the events of those eight years: moments as heartwarming as when Alex recorded herself saying “I love you” so her brother could listen to her whenever he wanted, and as heartrending as the young girl’s tragic, dawning realization of her own very tenuous mortality, and her parents’ difficulty in trying to explain why. Though Alex is a sad story, it is also one of hope; her greatest wish was that someday a cure would be found. Deford has written a phenomenal memoir about an extraordinary little girl.

    Do you ever feel like a hamster, spinning on a wheel in an endless loop and getting nowhere when it comes to your health and fitness? Are you working out regularly and cutting calories but seeing no real improvements? Does it feel like you will never lose those last 10 or 20 pounds? Or do you feel as if you simply don’t have the time required to lose the fat and get into shape? Imagine if you could have the blueprint for the most efficient form of exercise to keep your body healthy and fit and an eating plan to satisfy hunger, taste, and health. Well, now you can. The best part? It will only require 15 minutes of exercise, twice a week, paired with a controlled-carb diet, and on the average, you will lose 10 pounds of fat within five weeks. It’s hard to believe, but it works—and 15 Minutes to Fitness:Dr. Ben's SMaRT plan for total Fitness will not only show you how to do it but also explain why it works. If this sounds like just another “new exercise secret,” please be assured that it is most certainly not. The foundation of this program is based on years of study, observation, and practice, and it has delivered real, measurable results in the overwhelming majority of those who have tried it.
    
    Dr. Vincent “Ben” Bocchicchio has spent the last 40 years in the fitness and health field, and as he approaches 70, people are still shocked to hear that he only spends 14 minutes twice a week on working out. But it’s true. With only 7 percent body fat, he is often asked what the secret is and if there's  a “magic bullet.” The answer would be that the magic bullet is knowledge. And now with this book you will understand why genetically our bodies require simple and limited exercise exposure and how you can follow this optimal pattern yourself. The fact is that as humans we are hard-wired to exercise our bodies in very specific ways to reap the highest level of health benefits. I will provide the simple scientific argument for why my combination of high intensity exercise and controlled carbohydrate eating is the most effective means for burning fat, so that you can better understand exactly why this works. Exercise and diet are the two most powerful tools available for attaining high levels of health and function, and 15 Minutes to Fitness will show you just how little it actually takes to achieve a maximum response.
