    Alan Pickering's tale is not just the story of the local boy who came good. It's the story of a boy who did very well indeed. Born with a degenerative eye disease that left him blind by the age of thirty, Alan Pickering was not going to let this stop him becoming a leader in the world of pensions, winning 'Greatest Single Contribution to Occupational Pensions (1998–2017)' at the Professional Pensions UK Pension Awards.
    His achievements, however, were not solely limited to the highly technical world of pensions. A lifelong fan of horse racing, Pickering has become a keen racehorse owner himself, and was honoured to be elected a vice-president of the Racehorse Owners Association. Throughout his life he has never let his lack of sight hold him back, and he maintained a strong passion for athletics – participating in competitive race walking and running numerous marathons over the years.
    In Look Where You're Going Paddy Briggs uncovers the very human story behind a man best known for the Pickering Report, commissioned by the Blair government. From interviews with friends and family as well as conversations with Alan himself, he reveals a man whose intellect and amiable nature allowed him to push his disability to one side to succeed on his own terms.

    He ejects from his burning Navy jet and lands on a karst ridge near Hanoi. What follows in this meticulously researched history is a memoir of war. It is an account of one of the most implausible and heroic rescues of the air-war--and the aftermath. And the events immediately following his rescue carry the author to a secret base in Laos, then to a makeshift hospital in Saigon. The larger story, however, is of the author’s complex relationship with Vietnam. 
    It begins in Saigon, where he completes high school and comes to love the Vietnamese people. When he departs for college, he believes he’s done with the country. But when he leaves college life behind and enlists in the Navy, a series of improbable events land him in Navy flight school. As a pilot, it’s a direct line to combat and an unexpected return to a Saigon hospital--one with a surprising connection to his past. 
    The author experienced some of the fiercest air combat of the war. His air wing repeatedly hit the toughest targets in North Vietnam and suffered the highest loss rate--39 of its 72 aircraft went down. Many others suffered battle damage. The Jolly Green helicopter pilot who flew from the secret base in Laos to rescue the author earned the rarely awarded Air Force Cross and his three crew-members all were awarded Silver Stars. Following his hospitalization and rehabilitation, the writer volunteered for a third combat deployment, where he completed 137 combat missions. 
    Three decades later, the war behind him, he returns to Saigon, then he travels north to Hanoi to make his way into the remote countryside where he and his flight leader were shot down. A local guide, a woman who remembers the day the two airplanes were blown from the sky, leads him up the steep karst ridge and then deep into a cavern. During the trek he learns her brother was one of the gunners. Later that day, seated at a table in her thatched home, he begins to find reconciliation.

    Lifelong amateur athlete Stephen Madden decided to put himself to the test, physically and mentally, by immersing himself in the culture, diet, and psyche of CrossFit—the fast-growing but controversial fitness regime that's a stripped-down combination of high intensity aerobic activity, weightlifting, calisthenics, and gymnastics practiced by more than two million athletes worldwide. But what's crazier? The fact that such a grueling regimen—in which puking and muscle breakdowns during workouts are common—is so popular, or that people pay good money to do it? 
    In Embrace the Suck, Madden chronicles the year he devoted to mastering all of the basic Crossfit exercises like double unders, muscle ups and kipping pullups, and immersing himself in the Paleo diet that strips weight from its followers but leaves them fantasizing about loaves of bread. Throughout, he explores the culture of the sport, visiting gyms (boxes) around the country, becoming a CrossFit coach, and confronting some basic questions about himself, his past, and athletic limitations—and why something so difficult and punishing can be at once beautiful, funny, and rewarding.
