    Renowned cycling biomechanics pioneer, Phil Cavell, explores the growing trend of middle-aged and older cyclists seeking to achieve high-level performance. Using contributions from leading coaches, ex-professionals and pro-team doctors, he produces the ultimate manifesto for mature riders who want to stay healthy, avoid injury – and maximise their achievement levels. 
     
    Time's arrow traditionally plots an incremental path into declining strength and speed for all of us. But we are different to every other generation of cyclists in human history. An ever-growing number of us are determined to scale the highest peaks of elite physical fitness into middle-age and beyond. Can the emerging medical and scientific research help us achieve the holy triumvirate of speed and health with age? 
     
    The Midlife Cyclist offers a gold standard road-map for the mature cyclist who aims to train, perform and even race at the highest possible level.

    Seasoned pitchers Tom Glavine and Mike Mussina have seen it all in the Major Leagues, and both entered 2007 in search of individual milestones and one more shot at the World Series-Glavine with the Mets, Mussina five miles away with the Yankees. The two veterans experience very different seasons-one on a team dealing with the pressure to get to a World Series for the first time in seven years, the other with a team expected to be there every year. Taking the reader through contract negotiations, spring training, the ups of wins and the downs of losses, and the people in their lives-family, managers, pitching coaches, agents, catchers, other pitchers-Feinstein provides a true insider's look at the pressure cooker of sports at the highest level.

    Arsène Wenger is leaving Arsenal at the end of the 2018 season. The Wenger Revolution is a celebration of his years with the club.  
      
     In September 1996 a Frenchman, so little known in English football that fans asked “Arsène Who?”, walked into Arsenal. In the subsequent twenty plus years as manager he transformed the club. A total renovation of the training, stadium, style, economics of the team and the attraction of a global audience has taken place under Wenger's instruction. 
      
     This fascinating era is chronicled from the very beginning with distinctive photographs taken from inside the inner sanctum of the club by official Arsenal photographer Stuart MacFarlane, who has had privileged access for many years. Award winning journalist Amy Lawrence introduces each section to set the scene. 
      
     This captivating collection of images is captioned with personal anecdotes from Arsène Wenger himself as he reminisces about the significant moments and people that have defined his time at the club.

    Terrorism: Travel Safely - All...

    In a world where every day brings news of a new terrorist atrocity whether in an airport, on a train or bus or at a night spot, theatre, restaurant, market place, or tourist attraction, we must open our eyes and become aware of what is happening around us. Unfortunately these days if we are in public places we must be vigilant.
    
    International terrorism remains a serious threat to British, European, and US nationals living or travelling overseas. Attacks can occur anywhere in the world, usually with little or no warning. Terrorist attacks abroad will continue to target western interests, including British, European, and US tourists, travellers and expatriates.
    
    There is considered to be a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK, European, and US interests and nationals from groups or individuals motivated by the conflict in Iraq and Syria.
    
    Increasingly terrorists look for targets that aren't well-protected places, and where westerners can be found. These include places like bars, restaurants, shops, places of worship, tourist sites, and transport networks. Significant dates, anniversaries, public holidays, religious festivals, and political events have been targeted.
    
    The risk to aviation including at airports is clear from recent terrorist attacks. No country can give an absolute guarantee of security standards at its airports, but some airports may be less able to protect against terrorist attacks than others. The UK and its international partners continue to work closely with many countries, and with the aviation industry to reduce the threat, with additional security measures in place for direct flights to the UK and US where necessary.
    
    This audio-book provides clear, simple, unambiguous advice to make your journey overseas less stressful and keep you out of harm's way.
