Summary

This handy little guide is packed with tips and techniques for anybody who’s been climbing for a short while and wants to improve their technique. Clearly the best place to practise climbing skills is on a climbing wall or (harnessed securely) on a rock face, but we hope these ideas will give you some tips on what kit to invest in, help you improve your technique next time you climb and simply inspire you to go for it. We can’t promise that reading these ideas will see you climbing ropeless up mountains in the style of Tom Cruise in MI2 (we certainly wouldn’t recommend it) but we do hope you find them entertaining, inspiring and informative. Happy scrambling!

    Mike Nolan grew up in the deprivation of post- war Britain. As a young man he had a dream that somehow became a reality; to live his life on the high seas to indulge his passion for all things nautical. Eclectic employment as a musician, a hod carier, butler and boatbuilder meant that Nolan's life never confirmed to a nine to five existence. All the while the call of the sea, like a siren, was impossible to resist. His life as a sailor, fulfilled his wildest dreams but saw him hit by a series of catastrophes, including hurricanes and a violent shipwreck. On a more positive note, he did at least manage to save both his wife and her cat! This is a rags to riches story with a sharp sting in its tale.

    A money expert uses his passion for college basketball to teach the ins and outs of personal finance in a more approachable fashion. 
     
    What can legendary UCLA coach John Wooden teach us about personal financial planning? How do Georgetown’s shot-blocking big men relate to investing strategy? And what does Christian Laettner’s famous last-second shot have to do with leaving a financial legacy for your family? In Bulls, Bears, & Basketball, financial planning veteran Chuck Thoele makes the case that average investors can learn a lot from their hardwood heroes. If you think sports stories are more exciting than financial rhetoric, this book is for you. Forget dry and technical lectures about financial planning. Thoele translates must-know financial concepts into basketball language that’s enlightening and fun to read. Assess your own team, scout the competition, perfect your offense, get tough on defense, and always keep an eye on the clock. Guiding readers through the colorful history of NCAA basketball, Thoele draws parallels between some of the game’s most dramatic moments and the principles of building financial security. He tells of unstoppable teams, coaching geniuses, and glorious victories and relates them to essential lessons about investing, insurance, retirement, estate planning, and more.

    Two years after Titanic came another ship disaster of equal magnitude   
    "The most comprehensive and impressive account of the investigation of a shipwreck I've ever read. Kevin McMurray has revealed the secrets of the Empress of Ireland in a spellbinding read." --Clive Cussler, bestselling author of Night Probe!   
    On May 29, 1914, after a collision in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, the Empress of Ireland sank in minutes, taking 1,012 passengers and crew to their deaths. The disaster shocked the world but then was forgotten with the torpedoing of the Lusitania and the engulfing cataclysm of World War I. Now, in Dark Descent, acclaimed author and diver Kevin McMurray revives the story of this forgotten maritime catastrophe.   
    Dark Descent takes readers down into the frigid depths to explore the controversies of the ship's fatal night and the many attempts to salvage her contents, from the first hardhat diver sent down to recover loved ones to today's "adrenaline junkies" who risk­­--and often lose­­--their lives in pursuit of the perfect descent.

    Long before he hit the big time as the play-by-play voice of the Texas Longhorns and San Antonio Spurs, sportscaster Bill Schoening paid lots of dues. "Stories, Sports, and Songs" is a collection of 101 tales that chronicle Schoening's unlikely and often humorous radio journey. It started with the childhood dream of a 4th grader in inner-city Philadelphia and continued to small market stations in rural areas of Central Illinois and West Texas. Along the way, he wrote melodies and lyrics about his life experiences. Schoening's broadcasting career now spans over four decades, and he has spent half of those years with the Spurs, describing four NBA titles during his 21 seasons.
