Summary

'Complete novice or know-all, you'll love this stunning book. An essential boater's companion, it will certainly have a place on my boat on the Amalfi coast' 
 
Salvatore Calabrese, legendary bartender 
 
A boozy book for boaters, The Boat Drinks Book serves up an expert look at the drinking culture in key sailing spots around the world. The book is split into five regions: Atlantic, Med, Baltic, Pacific, and Caribbean, and author Fiona Sims encourages us to explore each region and discover what locals like to drink, how it's made, where to go to drink it, and what is best to eat with it. In doing so she uncovers distilleries, breweries and wineries all within a short taxi ride of the harbour and shows us how to make the most of traditional markets.  
 
As well as giving us the insider knowledge on fabulous locations worldwide, The Boat Drinks Book gets in on the making too. Cocktail and drink recipes inspire us to whip up something delicious – using local liqueurs, wines, spirits and produce – to sip on deck at the end of a long day's cruising or exploring. There's even a scattering of recipes for ultimate boat nibbles, inspired by each region, from tapenade to salsa to stuffed piquillo peppers. 
 
So whether you're a seasoned sailor or an armchair aperitif enthusiast, grab a copy of The Boat Drinks Book and let expert food and wine writer Fiona Sims quench your thirst. Your mission: to discover and enjoy.

    Britain's rivers deserve to be better known. Teeming with 
    wildlife, steeped in history, sporting bridges, docks and stunning 
    architecture, not to mention supporting riverside pubs, waterways museums and a 
    variety of places of interest, they are the country's essential arteries, 
    connecting inland Britain with the sea. 
     
    Covering Britain's best known tidal rivers (the Avon, 
    Severn, Dee, Mersey, Tyne and Thames), to the picturesque rural Camel, Wye, 
    Orwell and Crouch, as well as the industrial rivers of the Medway, Tyne and 
    Clyde, right down to the smallest and lesser known of Britain's tidal 
    waterways, this is a fascinating and comprehensive guide, packed with maps, 
    colour photographs and interesting facts about the lifeblood of our country. 
     
    Of interest to sailors, fishermen, motorised craft and 
    canoeists keen to discover beautiful unfrequented spots, stopping points, 
    places of interest, riverside pubs and lookout points, as well as practical 
    information on rapids, weirs and nearby towns and car parks, it will also 
    interest walkers, cyclists, families and holidaymakers discovering the local 
    history, folklore, riverside architecture and places to take river trips.

    John Feinstein's illuminating recollections from two decades of interviews with sports legends. John Feinstein's career is a sports fan's dream-a lifetime of encounters with the great figures in sports, not just on the field, but in the locker room and behind the scenes with legends like Bob Knight, Dean Smith, Mike Krzyzewski, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, and John McEnroe. Since his days as a young Washington Post journalist, Feinstein has written twenty-eight books and countless magazine articles and newspaper columns, covering college basketball, golf, tennis, baseball, and very nearly every sport in between. He has told us of victory and defeat, of athletes and coaches we love--and love to hate. But some of his best stories have been left untold, until now. One on One is an incredible portal into the sports we love-from the box scores and the pageantry of game night and into the hard work and intensity that turn players and coaches into legends.

    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.
    
    Justin Walsh is not only a Professional Golf Association and NLP trainer; he is also trained in sport hypnosis and energy psychology. He is a Trained Brain Coach near Munich, Germany. His training method is an optimum combination of technical and mental golf training coupled with British humor.

    A pictorial history of Manchester United’s rise from the 1958 Munich air disaster to a European Cup win ten years later, and the manager who led them there. 
     
    With words from best-selling author Jeff Connor and over 200 images, many of them new to the public, this is one man’s search for his personal Holy Grail, and his determination to get there. This is not a eulogy for Sir Matt Busby. As Connor points out, his roles as a club director after 1968 will always be questioned and that King Arthur would never have succeeded without his knights: Duncan Edwards, Roger Byrne, Bobby Charlton, George Best, Denis Law and, above all, Jimmy Murphy. All of these, and others, lighten the pages of a book certain to be seen by fans everywhere as a permanent memoir of an unforgettable era.

    From the survival instructor and author of When All Hell Breaks Loose, a guide to surviving fear, panic, and the biggest outdoor killers. 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. “Excellent advice…the obvious product of a man who has gone and done it…well worth reading.”—Field & Stream
