Summary

An informative guide to understanding and implementing the fundamentals of the Caro-Kann, the easy way. 
The Caro-Kann defence, named after the German chess players Horatio Caro and Marcus Kann, is notorious for its simple solidity and is a popular chess opening that players of all levels benefit from having in their arsenal. It is a firm favourite of grand masters past and present, including Karpov, Petrosian, Capablanca and Anand.
This is the fifth book from International Master Thomas Engqvist, and it avoids overcomplicated details and endless computer variations, focusing instead on key variations of the Caro-Kann that can be committed to memory. Examining classic games to demonstrate key moves in action, Engqvist brings the defence to life and provides you with the knowledge you need to put strategy into practice.

    Nothing Special is a book of change, healing, and a true story of horses inspiring spiritual awakenings in the most unexpected ways.  
    You have to be the biggest and best to stand out.  At least, that's what our culture seems to believe.  However, as psychologist Dr. Leia Hughey points out, we are all special and deserving of love, even if we are nothing special.  Through the nonverbal communication with an ordinary horse, she and others were able to reveal unhealed psychic wounds and provide a context for change and transformation.  Just people and horses.  Nothing special, really, but what a difference it made.  A pristine beauty exists slightly beneath the surface of our perception and can be found when love is recognized in the ordinary, enjoying one another for no particular reason.  In Nothing Special, you will see how interpersonal, interspecies interactions changed the world for a handful of people. 
    Narrated by Stan Welsh.

    A classic of travel writing, this book recounts Stevenson's adventures on an extended walk through uplands and mountains in south-western France. Humorous on his own failings as a traveller, and on his travails with Modestine the self-willed donkey, it is also an exploration of peasant life in an area marked by the violence of the wars of religion. This version includes the fragment "A mountain town in France", originally intended as the opening chapter, but often omitted and published as a separate essay. (Summary by Patrick Wallace)

    A sought-after interior designer shares his principles for transforming four walls, a floor, and a ceiling into stunning poetry in space. Jim Howard creates luxe yet comfortable homes for sophisticated clients around the country. His design work is known for the sort of evocative atmosphere that characterizes the world’s great spaces. “Atmosphere” is the magic of a place, the embodiment of all its power to capture your attention and embrace you—some might call it the “wow factor.” But even as it excites, atmosphere also soothes, offering an overall feeling of well-being and calm. Howard wrote this book to convey all he has learned about crafting atmosphere at home, wherever that home may be, whatever aesthetic it might have. Doing so isn’t just a matter of rules or formulas; it is a science as much as an art, which Jim shares in a dozen captivating chapters.
