The New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure and The Hormone Reset Diet shows every woman how to create a lifestyle that will help her look great, feel energized, and slow down the effects of aging. Feel destined for cellulite, saddle bags, and belly fat? Does your family come from a long line of Alzheimer's, cancer, or heart disease? Will nothing help your aging skin or declining libido or flagging energy? This book is for you. The body is magnificent but it doesn't come with a lifetime warranty, or an operating manual. You're the result of millions of years of evolution, but many of the adaptations that helped your ancestors survive are now working overtime to accelerate the aging process. The assumption here is that we are our genes and therefore trapped by the past. The good news is that your genetic code—the DNA sequence that is the biochemical basis of heredity—can play a minor role in the way you age. The scientific reality is that 90 percent of the signs of aging and disease are caused by lifestyle choices, not your genes. In other words, you have the capability to overcome and transform your genetic history and tendencies. Harvard/MIT—trained physician Sara Gottfried, M.D. has created a revolutionary 7-week program that empowers us to make the critical choices necessary to not just look young, but also feel young. Dr. Gottfried identifies and builds this book around the five-key factors that lead to accelerated aging -the muscle factor, the brain factor, the hormone factor, the gut factor, and the toxic fat factor. The 7-week program addresses these factors and treats them in an accessible and highly practical protocol and is as follows: Feed—Week 1 Sleep—Week 2 Move—Week 3 Release—Week 4 Expose—Week 5 Soothe—Week 6 Think—Week 7 Younger increases not only your lifespan, but also your healthspan. Dr. Gottfried's program makes it possible to change the way you age, stay younger longer, and remain healthy and vibrant for all of your days.

Ulysses (1922) is a novel by the Irish author James Joyce. It was first serialised in parts in the American journal The Little Review from March 1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach on 2 February 1922, in Paris. Joyce's technical innovations in the art of the novel... he used a complex network of symbolic parallels drawn from the mythology, history, and literature, and created a unique language of invented words, puns, and allusions. One of the most important works of Modernist literature, it has been called "a demonstration and summation of the entire movement". "Before Joyce, no writer of fiction had so foregrounded the process of thinking." Written over a seven-year period from 1914 to 1921. No book has ever been more eagerly and curiously awaited by the strange little inner circle of book-lovers and littérateurs than James Joyce's "Ulysses".

A story of inspiration and transformation for the really desperate housewife—now a TV series from the creator of Sex and the City, starring Sutton Foster and Hilary Duff! She’s old enough to be his mother. Alice has always looked young for her age, even with her graying hair and her dowdy New Jersey housewife style. Make that ex-housewife: Now that her husband’s gone and her daughter is grown, Alice is in desperate need of a whole new life. So she lets her best friend Maggie, a hip New York City artist, transform her on New Year’s Eve. Soon, thanks to the wonders of hair dye and tight jeans, Alice looks really young, as one night in a Manhattan bar confirms. At midnight, she kisses a boy who was in diapers when she was in high school. She’s having too much fun to care. The white lie Alice tells Josh gets her thinking that if no one asks her age, she doesn’t have to tell. So she applies for a job she had briefly before becoming a full-time mom—and gets it. Meanwhile, Josh is falling head over heels for Alice, who’s just way cooler than girls his age. He figures she’s about twenty-nine—and for the first time since she was twenty-nine, or possibly ever, Alice feels that life is ripe with possibility. Unfortunately one possibility is that she’s gonna get caught. Challenging the adage that the truth will set you free, Younger is a hilarious and insightful story that proves that you’re only as young as you feel.

Although vital to our well-being and even to our success as a species, the physical sense of balance has never attained the same recognition as sight, hearing, touch, smell, or taste. Now, with an epidemic of debilitating falls sweeping America's aging population, the time is ripe for a lively and illuminating tour of the human body's most exquisitely intricate and least understood faculty. BALANCE is the first book written for a general audience that examines the mysteries of the human balance system--the astonishingly complicated mechanisms that allow our bodies to counteract the force of gravity as we move through space. A scientific, historical, and practical exploration of how balance works, BALANCE also provides the keys to remaining upright for as long as humanly possible. From simple motion sickness to astronauts' "space stupids," and from fetal somersaults to the Flying Wallendas, McCredie guides readers on a delightful quest to elevate balance to its rightful place in the pantheon of the senses.

A cult classic, The Manly Art of Knitting was originally published in 1972, but has been out of print for decades. Fougner initially published this book in the hope that it would encourage men to take up knitting, or those who did, would openly embrace it. In this amusing, yet practical guide to knitting, Dave Fougner provides a step-by-step guide for beginners as well as those taking up the needles again. Containing all of the original black and white illustrations and photographs, you cant help but smile at the shots of well-worked hands delicately knitting a blanket for a dog, horse or female companion. Chapters include: basics, pattern stitches (garter, stockinette, purl, rib, moss, rise, and basket weave), projects, and problems.

 How to Train As If Your VERY LIFE Depended on Your Degree of REAL Strength, Power and Toughness  Most physical training systems are designed for the domesticated human animal. That is to say, for us humans who live lives of such relative security that we cultivate our strength and power more out of pride and for a sense of accomplishment than out of an absolute need to survive in the wild. The professional athlete hones his body to function well in a sports event-rather than to emerge safe from a life-or-death struggle. And even those in our military and LEO rely more on the security of their weapons and armor than on their own personal, raw power and brute strength to carry the day.  There remains one environment where exuding the necessary degree of authoritative strength and power can mean the difference between life or death: the maximum security prison. In maximum security, the predator preys on the weak like we breathe air. Intimidation is the daily currency. You either become a professional victim or you develop that supreme survival strength that signals the predator to stay at bay.  Paul Wade spent 19 years in hell holes like San Quentin, Angola and Marion. He entered this world a gangly, terrorized weakling and he graduated to final freedom, pound-for-pound one of the strongest humans on the planet. Paul Wade dedicated his prison life to the cultivation of that supreme survival strength. And ironically, it is in America's prisons that we can find some of the great, lost secrets of how to get immensely powerful and strong. Paul Wade mined these secrets as if his life depended on it-and of course in many ways it did.  Finally free, Paul Wade pays his debt to society-not just with the horrors of his years in the hole-but with the greatest gift he could possibly give us: a priceless set of progressions that can take ANYONE who has the will from abject weakling to strength specimen extraordinaire.  InÂConvict ConditioningÂPaul Wade has laid out a logical and effective zero to hero progression in key bodyweight strength exercises and presented a solid training philosophy. Get this book. -Pavel Tsatsouline, author of The Naked Warrior  Convict ConditioningÂgives honor and respect toÂbody-weightÂtraining.ÂI feel Convict ConditioningÂprovides the progression,ÂprecisionÂand clarity that is necessary toÂcombatÂour cultural decline in simple bodyÂknowledge. -Gray Cook,ÂMSPT, OCS, CSCS, Functional Movement Systems, author of Body in Balance  Convict Conditioning is a fantastic text crammed with solid information, and tons of vital nuggets and powerful insights that when followed will pack your frame with rock-hard, functional muscle. You provide the body, Convict Conditioning gives you the rest in a highly readable, easy-to-understand format that teaches you what to do and how to do it. As a guy who has written extensively on exercise, I highly recommend this book. -Loren Christensen, author of Solo Training and The Fighter's Body.  Coach Wade has laid out a set of progressions in Convict Conditioning that can lead to mastery of the big 6 bodyweight exercises and you would be wise to listen. ÂThis is knowledge proven in extreme conditions. So respect the progressions and put in your time-you'll be stronger for it. -Brett Jones Master RKC, CSCS, CK-FMS  Outstanding! By far the most innovative fitness book in years. Many talk about mastering your body weight yet Convict Conditioning actually delivers a blueprint for anyone, regardless of your current fitness. The training progressions are genius.   -Tim Larkin, Master Close Combat Instructor If you are a serious student of bodyweight exercise and physical culture, you must get this book. -Craig Ballantyne, Turbulence Training  I LOVE IT. Convict Conditioning is probably the best compilation of callisthenic exercises and training progressions I have seen. Coach Wade goes to the heart of true training with correct biomechanics, kinesiology and training progressions that so many in the word of physical training just seem to miss these days. Bravo Coach, bravo, an epic book that deserves to be in the library of all who love the world of strength.   -Mark Reifkind, Master RKC Instructor, Girya Kettlebell Training  Convict Conditioning is jam packed with the most powerful bodyweight training information I have ever come across. It's the book I WISH I had in my hands when I was a competitive wrestler, BUT, even more important to me is that I can pass on this knowledge to my clients AND my son and daughter when they grow up.

The 15-Second Handstand: A Beginners Guide is the ANSWER to the questions we all really have about the handstand. It is the ONLY book on the market to address the big handstand problem: fear. When learning to handstand, you are normally dealing with a fear of falling over; and The 15-Second handstand lays out a progression that conquers fear, builds strength and ENABLES you to HIT YOUR GOAL in record time. Just look at what others are saying about it... "I basically couldn't put the book down. It really tremendous. I get the feeling that you REALLY know what you're talking about. It's really neat the way you present the 6 Challenges right away, then leave all the WHY for later. Plus, you really clarified for me what I need to pay attention to: locked elbows and active shoulders. And getting past my fear by learning to bail. The rest is gravy for going from 15s to one minute. I never had this feeling before of knowing what to do." - Dan R. "I found the book very clear and simple, never boring. It is perfect for people who want to know why and how something works, but the step-by-step progression is perfect for people who don't care about the details." - Giacomo B. "I finished your book in one day I like it, it's very helpful for me and the progression is very good I changed my training following your progression and trained much more face to the wall, every day the 'holy' five minutes. I trained 4 months before, but had fear to move to freestanding, without any wall." - Dr. Jurgen Fohlinger "As a kid I remember my father standing on his hands and walking up and then down a flight of stairs on his hands. At 67 years old I doubt I will ever be able to duplicate that feat, but thanks to Chris Salvato's systematic approach I'm now able to stand freestanding] on my hands for a few seconds (and get off my hands without destroying myself and nearby furniture) a feat that has eluded me for years. Using his program I'm looking forward to extending that time into minutes." - Marshall R. Peterson "Chris Salvato did a really good job with The 15-Second Handstand book. You can start your way into the progressions within 10 minutes of reading, and learn the why and how later through the book. The finer points of technique are spot on and prevent bad habits from developing (bent arms, sagging shoulders). Also, the pirouette progression makes you understand the act of bailing, and saves you from having to rollout, which may be troublesome depending on the kind of surface you are training in. This book is definitely going to help in building a handstand addiction." - Lucas Serur "This is the third or fourth handstand book I bought, and the first one I have liked. The other ones were complete garbage. This one stands out by having a straightforward progression towards a clearly defined final goal, and no detours. There are clear, realistic targets for every step. I love how everything is sliced into small, doable pieces, such as your advice on adding the four form cues one at a time. Best of all I liked that there's a step in the progression dedicated to bailing. I'm actually starting to lose my fear of falling now."- Barry L. "I have not read any other books about the handstand. This book is very easy to follow. It is also very detailed about what to do, and what not to do. It convinces me that it is possible for me to learn it." - Anders I.
