Wouldn't it be useful to be able to accurately predict the weather simply by reading the clouds? Well, with this book, you can! 
TV forecasts, online predictions and smartphone apps are all based on the same data – a number-crunched overview of how air pressure and temperature affect the weather across a large geographical area. 
But to get an idea of how the weather will develop for the precise spot where you're standing (or walking, sailing, golfing, fishing, etc) you don't need any equipment or a wifi connection – you just need to look up. 
This book will give you a broad understanding of why the clouds are symptoms of weather patterns, not causes. By reading these signs in the sky and referring to the explanatory colour photographs, you will discover exactly what those signs mean. 
An at-a-glance guide to the clouds for anyone anywhere in the world, on land or at sea, this book will enable you to predict the weather by recognising cloud types, shapes, colour and behaviour. It will be an invaluable companion for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities. 
'Well researched - practical information in an easy to assimilate form' - Professor Richard Collier, former President of the Royal Meteorological Society 
'So good that my Yachtmaster candidates would do well to read it. I learned something from this book. I bet you do too' - Tom Cunliffe, author of The Complete Day Skipper and The Complete Yachtmaster 
'Absolutely brilliant; a must for anyone who does anything outside and for whom the weather might be important. Everyone, wherever they are in the world, will get something from this book' - Duncan Wells, author ofStress-Free Sailing and Stress-Free Motorboating

    Dwayne De Rosario is one of MLS’s 25 Greatest Players
    The autobiography of one of the best male soccer player to ever come out of Canada. Before Beckham, Kaká, Rooney, and Zlatan, DeRo was the godfather of Major League Soccer.
    DeRo is the life story of one of the greatest athletes Canada has ever produced. Born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario, Dwayne De Rosario wasn’t expected to make it out of high school, let alone to the top of soccer world. As part of a family of five, growing up in a one-bedroom apartment, he had to work for everything he had and sometimes that meant doing things he realized he didn’t want to do. It was soccer that saved him from a life on the street.
    For the first time, Dwayne shares many heartbreaking, life-altering stories from his mischievous childhood, an upbringing that made him the hungry, successful, superstar athlete he became. His strong Caribbean heritage shaped the person and the player the world knows as a four-time MLS Cup champion, seven-time MLS All-Star, Canadian national team captain, and record goal-scorer. He helped put Canadian soccer on the map, and it’s clear that pursuit of greatness didn’t come without struggle, both on and off the field. Now, DeRo hopes to inspire, and train, the next great Canadian soccer star.

    Take Yourself from Miserable, Mediocre Golfer to Consistent Par-Breaker  
    Imagine this. You've been working on your golf game for the past few months now, and you think you're starting to see results. 
    You read all the books, forums, and watched all the videos in preparation for this moment. 
    You take the shot. You swing. And miss. Again. 
    Aren't you sick of that feeling?  
    I know it way too well. It took me years to go from a totally inconsistent golfer to one that could regularly break par.  
    I browsed golf forums, social media groups, and even read dozens of books on the subject. I loved everything about the game, but for the life of me, I just could not win. 
    But over time, I started to gain a little traction. I would adjust my grip a bit, and my score improved. 
    I would change up my swing a bit, and my score improved a tad bit more. I did this with every aspect of my game. 
    This trial and error process eventually paid off, but it took years.  
    Fortunately for you, I consolidated all of that information into this single game-changing guidebook for beginners like yourself. In this book, I show you exactly what you need to focus on to see results in mere weeks, rather than spending years and years like I did. 
    There is no "golf theory" here...just tried and tested tactics from an experienced golfer.  
    All you need to do is focus on the tactics in this book exactly as I teach you, and you will see drastic improvements and consistent wins in your golf game in no time.

    Dorothee Haering is a photographer and owner of the graphics and marketing agency "bildhaft", in Munich, Germany. Golf has accompanied she from her cradle, and most of her family has the bug too. Her grandfather practiced enthusiastically on a chipping green in his garden, and her father, a successful team player, regularly took her with him on the golf course when she was a child. At the weekends she was a proud caddy and accompanied "her players" throughout the tournaments and also briefly took part in junior training. Ever since she saw Jack Niklaus play golf 1972 in Munich she knew: she wanted to become a Golf Professional. Later, life had other plans for her and there followed an involuntary golf-intermission lasting thirty-eight years until the golf addiction broke out again with a vengeance. Her goal for her (second) golf career: she wanted to break 80.
