In 2012, Derrick Rose was on top of the world.
After growing up in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood, Rose achieved an improbable childhood dream: being selected first overall in the NBA draft by his hometown Chicago Bulls. The point guard known to his family as "Pooh" was a phenom, winning the Rookie of the Year award and electrifying fans around the world. In 2011, he became the youngest MVP in league history. He and the Bulls believed the city's first berth in the NBA Finals since the Jordan era was on the horizon. Rarely had a bond between a player and fans been so strong, as the city wrapped its arms around the homegrown hero.
Six years and four knee surgeries later, he was waived by the Utah Jazz, a once surefire Hall of Fame career seemingly on the brink of collapse. Many speculated his days in the NBA were over.
But Derrick Rose never doubted himself, never believed his struggles on and off the court were anything other than temporary setbacks. Rather than telling the world he had more to give, he decided to show them.
The Thames is unique, emerging as a small stream in idyllic countryside and growing into the country's largest river, passing through some of the world's most iconic urban environments. Linking London to the countryside and the sea, the Thames is the heart of the capital and its waters the lifeblood of England.
This beautiful book celebrates the entire river from source to sea, and with wonderful photography and quirky text follows it on a voyage through Britain's history. London has so often been the beginning and the end of the Thames story, and whilst it forms a major part, this book gives an altogether more complete and unexpected view of one of the most remarkable and well-loved rivers in the world. We see the famous views and also learn lesser-known facts, such as Dick Turpin's secret hideaway (complete with an underground stable for Black Bess), the home of the notorious Chancellor Sir Francis Dashwood (the only Chancellor to have delivered his budget speech drunk) and the scene of the Monty Python fish-slapping dance.
First published in 2007, this gorgeous coffee table book has been updated for its second edition with new text and photography (including the Jubilee pageant), and continues to be the perfect gift for anyone living near, visiting or enjoying this magnificent river, with its visual variety, hidden secrets and fascinating history.

Learn how it is possible to stretch your limits and achieve the impossible as Rhys Chong reveals his personal experiences of training and racing in an Ironman Triathlon, despite only having a year to prepare. Completing an Ironman Triathlon is no mean feat. An Ironman means facing a 2.4-mile (3.86km) swim, a 112-mile (180.25km) bike and a marathon 26.2-mile (42.2km) run, raced in that order without a break. What's more, most Ironman events have a strict time limit of 17 hours to complete the race. So it's no wonder that with no prior training, Physiotherapist Rhys believed that he could never complete one. However, after training consistently for a year and working with a team of experienced professionals, Rhys eventually enjoyed the sweet success of crossing the finish line of his first Ironman in Switzerland in just 12 hours 55 seconds. To celebrate achieving this life ambition, Rhys has written First Time Ironman to provide a glimpse into the training required for an Ironman and to inspire people who may have similar sports ambitions, but are limited by their beliefs that they can succeed. Also, Rhys wants to encourage anyone facing a challenge in their life that by "having the guts to confront their fears and prepare for the unknown, they could be at the start of an incredible life-changing journey." Completing an Ironman is something you will ultimately face alone; however, the preparation is very much a team sport. "First Time Ironman" not only tells the experience like it is, but explores the support and expert guidance Rhys obtained to make an Ironman journey a happy, healthy, but most of all a memorable experience.
