Summary

The must-read practical guide to what to eat (on and off the bike) for  any cyclist looking for a training or performance advantage 
 
If you're looking for success on the bike what you eat is at the core of all your training. You are what you eat - and if you're on the bike for long periods and expecting results then your diet is crucial. Get it wrong and you can feel sluggish and below par – but eat right and all the training and preparation will be worth it.  
 
 Nigel Mitchell, head of nutrition at Cannondale–Drapac, is at the pinnacle of delivering cutting edge nutrition, and has demonstrated this at the elite level of cycling.  
 
 Now Nigel lifts the lid on his nutritional secrets and the knowledge and experience gained from working with the top professional to help you get the most from your diet to fuel your cycling and gain a performance advantage.  
  
 This accessible and practical toolkit features crucial rules to follow and 24 nutritional recipes for breakfast, main meals and snacks. This is a no-nonsense and non-faddy approach to a subject that's often shrouded in mystery and pseudo-science. Pro rider anecdotes and race case studies feature throughout to help you identify your own requirements.

    From the bestselling author of A More Beautiful Question, hundreds of big and small questions that harness the magic of inquiry to tackle challenges we all face--at work, in our relationships, and beyond. 
      
    When confronted with almost any demanding situation, the act of questioning can help guide us to smart decisions. By asking questions, we can analyze, learn, and move forward in the face of uncertainty. But "questionologist" Warren Berger says that the questions must be the right ones; the ones that cut to the heart of complexity or enable us to see an old problem in a fresh way. 
      
    In The Book of Beautiful Questions, Berger shares illuminating stories and compelling research on the power of inquiry. Drawn from the insights and expertise of psychologists, innovators, effective leaders, and some of the world's foremost creative thinkers, he presents the essential questions readers need to make the best choices when it truly counts, with a particular focus in four key areas: decision-making, creativity, leadership, and relationships. 
      
    The powerful questions in this book can help you: 
    -        Identify opportunities in your career or industry 
    -        Generate fresh ideas in business or in your own creative pursuits 
    -        Check your biases so you can make better judgments and decisions 
    -        Do a better job of communicating and connecting with the people around you 
      
    Thoughtful, provocative, and actionable, these beautiful questions can be applied immediately to bring about change in your work or your everyday life.

    Revelations on Healing - What...

    When dermatologist Peter Wisch learned how to channel higher wisdom, he wondered whether that ability would be able to help his patients as well. Both he and many of his patients had longed to find answers to mystifying questions regarding more profound reasons for illness. Remarkably, what he found proved to be both surprising and revelatory. The knowledge he discovered was quite different, albeit not invalidating, than what he had been taught in medical school. Beneath all the biological, chemical, physiological, and other physical causes for disease exist emotional, mental, and spiritual ones. The messages he received not only resonated with patients, but its advice when passed along and heeded, seemed to help heal their conditions. What began as innocent curiosity revolutionized his way of understanding and treating illness that does not discredit the field of medicine, but instead holds great potential to enhance it. In Revelations on Healing, Dr. Wisch describes how you too can take control of your own health by applying fundamental metaphysical tenets to awaken the healer within you and manifest your own well-being.

    How do the rich get rich? An updated edition of the “remarkable” New York Times bestseller, based on two decades of research (The Washington Post).   Most of the truly wealthy in the United States don’t live in Beverly Hills or on Park Avenue. They live next door.   America’s wealthy seldom get that way through an inheritance or an advanced degree. They bargain-shop for used cars, raise children who don’t realize how rich their families are, and reject a lifestyle of flashy exhibitionism and competitive spending. In fact, the glamorous people many of us think of as “rich” are actually a tiny minority of America’s truly wealthy citizens—and behave quite differently than the majority.   At the time of its first publication, The Millionaire Next Door was a groundbreaking examination of America’s rich—exposing for the first time the seven common qualities that appear over and over among this exclusive demographic. This edition includes a new foreword by Dr. Thomas J. Stanley—updating the original content in the context of the financial crash and the twenty-first century.   “Their surprising results reveal fundamental qualities of this group that are diametrically opposed to today’s earn-and-consume culture.” —Library Journal
