Summary

Skiing exercises for beginners and intermediate skiers is a great program of skiing exercises to be performed on the slope which have been painstakingly selected and perfectly presented. The exercises are grouped according to the elements of the technique we want to practice (and in many cases improve incorrect habits connected with them), and there is a clearly defined aim of the exercise and the level of difficulty. Each exercise is described in an easy-to-understand way, and what is more important, it is demonstrated in a detailed manner in the sequence of photos. The books are great aids for skiers who want to comprehensively improve their skiing technique or correct specific elements of their technique. The books are designed both for self-taught skiers, so most of us, and for skiing course participants and skiing instructors, proving to be a great ready teaching instrument.

    The definitive history of the most dominant team in American sports historyNo superlatives are equal to the Boston Celtics of the 1960s. From 1959 to 1966 they won championship after championship, an eight-in-a-row streak that outshines any other in American sports. Led by coach Red Auerbach, center Bill Russell, and point guard Bob Cousy, they played a kind of basketball that seemed to come from an earlier era. Auerbach’s Celtics played clean, honest, and strong, winning time and again by working as a team in a sport that is too often dominated by superstars. This book is a season-by-season history of their dynasty, covering thirteen years of breathtaking success—a level of brilliance that may never be reached again.

    This sports book, memoir, and manifesto from a Super Bowl Champion elucidates racism in the United States. Michael Bennett is a Super Bowl Champion, a three-time Pro Bowl defensive end, a fearless activist, a feminist, a grassroots philanthropist, an organizer, and a change maker. He’s also one of the most scathingly humorous athletes on the planet, and he wants to make you uncomfortable. Bennett adds his unmistakable voice to discussions of racism and police violence, Black athletes and their relationship to powerful institutions like the NCAA and the NFL, the role of protest in history, and the responsibilities of athletes as role models to speak out against injustice. Following in the footsteps of activist-athletes from Muhammad Ali to Colin Kaepernick, Bennett demonstrates his outspoken leadership both on and off the field. Written with award-winning sportswriter and author Dave Zirin, Things that Make White People Uncomfortable is a sports book for our turbulent times, a memoir, and a manifesto as hilarious and engaging as it is illuminating.A version for Young Adults is also available.“A courageous and compassionate story of a great athlete and grand human being full of deep care for his fellow citizens! Don't miss it!” —Cornel West“There is a revolution underway inside professional sports and Michael Bennett is at ground zero. In this revelatory book, he puts everything on the line to share the reasons, strategy, pain and deep thought behind this historic uprising. And he invites us into a vision of justice and liberation that is simply irresistible. This book is pure fire.” —Naomi Klein, author of No Is Not Enough
