Summary

There was a time when a man would be no more likely to look at a guide to fitness than he would be to ask for directions. Well, times have changed. Now we all need to look like models and for most blokes that means hard work. Giving up (or cutting down) on the beer and tobacco, eating a balanced diet (whatever that is) and taking more exercise than a stroll to the bar. This book contains 20 simple ideas to start you off on the route to total fitness. You’ll find out what to eat, the best exercises for fitness and muscle tone and how to build both of these into your daily life with the minimum of effort. You might even enjoy it!
Available since: 11/03/2014.

    In the wilderness, one false step can make the difference between a delightful respite and a brush with death. On a beautiful summer afternoon in 1998, Dan Stephens, a twenty-two-year-old canoeist, was leading a trip deep into Ontario's Quetico Provincial Park. He stepped into a gap among cedar trees to look for the next portage—and did not return. More than four hours later, Dan awakened from a fall with a lump on his head and stumbled deeper into the woods, confused. Three years later, Jason Rasmussen, a third-year medical student who loved the forest's solitude, walked alone into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness on a crisp fall day. After a two-day trek into a remote area of the woods, he stepped away from his campsite and made a series of seemingly trivial mistakes that left him separated from his supplies, wet, and lost, as cold darkness fell. Enduring days without food or shelter, these men faced the full harsh force of wilderness, the place that they had sought out for tranquil refuge from city life. Lost in the Wild takes listeners with them as they enter realms of pain, fear, and courage, as they suffer dizzying confusion and unending frustration, and as they overcome seemingly insurmountable hurdles in a race to survive.

    From the beloved Field & Stream columnist: “Heavey takes us back to the joys—and occasional pitfalls—of the humble edibles around us” (The Wall Street Journal).   For Bill Heavey, being a sportsman is more than a hobby—it’s a way of life. So despite living inside the DC Beltway, raising a daughter who has an aversion to “nature food,” and having zero experience with foraging or gardening, Bill attempts the ultimate sportsman’s dream: living off the land.   Unsurprisingly, Bill’s foray into catching, finding, and growing his dinner doesn’t go exactly as planned. From battles with tomato-eating squirrels to a grizzly attempt at gutting perch to multiple failures at harvesting an appetizing salad, Bill stumbles through his quest for wild food with blood loss, humiliation, and hard lessons. Still, with the help of his locavore girlfriend and an eccentric neighbor who runs an under-the-table bait business, he manages to eat the way our ancestors did—and uncovers the true meaning of being full.   “Bold, courageous, hilarious, honest, and touching” (Duff Goldman), Bill Heavey’s first full-length book is a must-read look at how we consume, consider, and source our most basic of needs.

    Mario Balotelli has a reputation like no other in football. Since exploding on to the scene at Inter Milan in 2007, he has won league titles in both Italy and England, moving between Europe's elite clubs.
    
    Yet for all his undoubted talent, he is better known for his off-field antics – not least his infamous run-ins with both the police and Manchester's firefighters. Once described by José Mourinho as 'unmanageable', match-winning performances at the highest level have continued to convince clubs such as AC Milan and Liverpool to give him a chance.
    
    With exclusive access to friends, teammates and coaches, acclaimed football biographer Luca Caioli talks to the people best placed to explain the mystery that is Mario Balotelli.

    **FULLY UPDATED PAPERBACK EDITION OF THE BESTSELLING BIOGRAPHY ON MAX VERSTAPPEN, NOW DOUBLE WORLD CHAMPION**
    
    Few drivers have shaken up Formula 1 in quite the same way as Max Verstappen. Already the youngest competitor in F1 history, he made history as the first Dutch driver to win the World Championship in 2021. In 2022 he retained his title with four races to spare and went on to achieve the highest season points tally of all time.
    
    As the son of former F1 driver Jos Verstappen, Max was destined to be a racing driver. And as sports journalist James Gray deftly shows, since his headline-grabbing debut victory at the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix, Max has continued to make an indelible impression on the sport, courting criticism and plaudits in equal measure.
    
    Gray seeks to understand the outspoken nature and aggressive driving style that make Verstappen a must watch before, during and after races, and why his Dutch fans, who turn up to cheer him on in their orange-clad droves, are quite so fanatical.
