Summary

Season after season, Cristiano Ronaldo continues to prove that he is one of football’s true greats. A three-time winner of the FIFA Ballon d’Or and the man whose astonishing goalscoring feats have fired much of Real Madrid’s recent success, he is driven by an insatiable desire to succeed and to improve himself year after year.

Here Madrid-based journalist Luca Caioli tells the inside story of the global superstar, featuring insights from those who know him best: coaches, teammates, girlfriends and even the man himself.

Updated to include all the action from 2014/15 – a campaign in which he claimed the European Golden Shoe for a record fourth time – Ronaldo lays bare the career of a modern footballing icon.

    The Dark Ice Collection contains books that are about Professional Hockey players that have very dark sides.
     
    Alana had loved hockey all her life. When she attended a game she didn’t expect anything out of the ordinary to happen. So, she was shocked when after a game she was asked out by a player. In fact, she had been so shocked she had said No. Little did she realize that that one little word would change her life forever.
     
    Ronan was a star. He was feared on the ice and adored by his fans. He had women falling at his feet. No one ever told him no— Until Alana.
     
    She was about to learn that no one turned him down and got away with it. Ronan always got what he wanted. And now he wanted her.
     
    This book is subtitled as Book One under this collection. However, each book is standalone and not related to each other in their storylines. They are published under the ‘Dark Ice Collection’ title so that readers can quickly identify my books that share the genres of Dark erotic romance and Professional Hockey.
     
     
     
    This book is in the Dark ‘romance’ genre. It contains taboo subject matter that some readers may find disturbing.
     
    Due to the content, this book is intended for adults 18 years and older.

    ***Krav Maga Broken Down Into Easy To Follow Steps With Detailed and Illustrated Descriptions!***
    
    You've heard about Krav Maga and want to learn the system but don't know where to start? Look no further. No other book is going to teach you Krav Maga from the ground up - teaching you the history and philosophy of this self-defense system before introducing principles, techniques and strategy. Through this methodology, you'll understand Krav Maga both mentally and physically, thus allowing you to master this effective self-defense system. 
    
    If you want to master Krav Maga, you're in the right place. Krav Maga is not something you learn overnight and it not something you can learn by simply reading a book. As with any martial arts systems, you need to train your body as well as your mind to master each movement and technique. Designed for those completely new to Krav Maga, "Krav Maga for Beginners" will introduce you to Krav Maga like never before by walking you through the mind of the developers of this self-defense system originally created for the Israeli military. 
    
    Detailed and Illustrated Content of Krav Maga Techniques and Moves Makes This Book Like Having a Krav Maga Guru With You While You Learn!
    
    Krav Maga is one of the fastest growing martial arts styles for several reasons such as the relatively easy learning curve and the fact that the Techniques and Movements are Practical in Real World Scenarios. While many other martial arts styles are great in practice, not many challenge the immense practical implication of Krav Maga. 
    
    Krav Maga is great in ACTION. Rather than focusing on style, Krav Maga emphasizes the quick and efficient neutralization of enemy threats in addition to effective techniques to deploy against armed assailants. 
    
    "Krav Maga For Beginners" has been specifically designed with ease of learning in mind to ensure you don't get stuck, lost or lose hope in the learning process. Never again will you need to waste your time searching the internet, watching videos and paying crazy amounts of money for online courses!

    Shipwrecks of the Forth and Tay

    This is a meticulously-researched reference guide to 300 shipping losses, and the events surrounding their sinking, off the coast of Scotland from Berwick-on-Tweed to the Forth and Tay, and northwards to Stonehaven.
    
    This new book is a very much improved and updated edition of the successful previous edition, Shipwrecks of the Forth, and benefits hugely from the vast amount of vital new information gleaned by the author during 15 years of painstaking research. Each wreck is listed by area with details of position, history and fate. The text is accompanied by maps and charts and illustrated with many dramatic photographs. As a result of this meticulous work, exciting discoveries and recoveries such as ships' bells and pottery have been made by divers, allowing them to confirm identities of previously unknown wrecks.
    
    In addition to first-hand local knowledge of fishermen, coastguards, lifeboat men and divers, the author has consulted primary sources including official records from the Admiralty and Lloyds, official German U-boat records and Norwegian, Swedish and Danish records.
    
    Many vessels were lost due to running aground or collisions but the vast majority of shipwrecks immediately surrounding our coasts resulted from military activities during the First and Second World War. As such this aspect of the book provides significant historical interest for readers.

    Gustav Steinbrecht's Gymnasium of the Horse is one of the great milestones of equestrian literature, alongside Xenophon, de Pluvinel, Newcastle, and de la Guérinière. It forms a connection and transition between two eras. 
        On one hand, it is the culmination of the equestrian literature of the late 18th century and 19th century that, under the influence of the Industrial Revolution, tried to explain equine biomechanics by comparing the body to a mechanical device. 
        On the other hand, it forms the theoretical foundation for the H. Dv. 12 German Cavalry Manual on the training of horse and rider [Xenophon Press 2014] and its successor, the Richtlinien fuer Reiten und Fahren of the German National Federation. The Gymnasium of the Horse belongs on every dressage rider's bookshelf. It's the kind of book that needs to be studied, because every word is chosen deliberately, and every sentence is full of knowledge and meaning. It's a book that needs to be re-read regularly, because with each new reading, your understanding will evolve and deepen. 
        It is a true classic, because it is universally accepted and admired, not only in Germany, but also in the rest of the dressage world, as it contains so much wisdom, so much invaluable advice that even 130 years later, it has lost nothing of its relevance. Steinbrecht formulates rules, principles, and guidelines for horse training more concisely and more sharply than almost any other author. His book has truly stood the test of time.
