<b><i>In a civilized society, violence is rarely the answer. But when it is-it's the <u>only</u> answer. </i></b><br /><br />The sound of breaking glass downstairs in the middle of the night. <br /><br />The words, "Move and you die." <br /><br />The hands on your child, or the knife to your throat. <br /><br />In this essential book, self-protection expert and former military intelligence officer Tim Larkin changes the way we think about violence in order to save our lives. By deconstructing our assumptions about violence-its morality, its function in modern society, how it <i>actually </i>works-Larkin unlocks the shackles of our own taboos and arms us with what we need to know to prevent, prepare for, and survive the unthinkable event of life-or-death violence. Through a series of harrowing true-life stories, Larkin demonstrates that violence is a tool equally effective in the hands of the "bad guy" or the "good guy"; that the person who acts first, fastest and with the full force of their body is the one who survives; and that each and every one of us is capable of being that person when our lives are at stake. <br /><br />An indispensable resource, <i>When Violence is the Answer</i> will remain with you long after you've finished reading, as the bedrock of your self-protection skills and knowledge. <br /><br />

<p><strong>An eye-opening exploration of how the human body can best recover and adapt to sports and fitness training.</strong></p><br /><p>In recent years <em>recovery</em> has become a sports and fitness buzzword. Anyone who works out or competes at any level is bombarded with the latest recovery products and services: from drinks and shakes to compression sleeves, foam rollers, electrical muscle stimulators, and sleep trackers.</p><br /><p>In <em>Good to Go</em>, acclaimed <em>FiveThirtyEight</em> science writer Christie Aschwanden takes readers on an entertaining and enlightening tour through this strange world. She investigates whether drinking Gatorade or beer after training helps or hinders performance; she examines the latest trends among athletes, from NFL star Tom Brady’s infrared pajamas to gymnast Simone Biles’ pneumatic compression boots to swimmer Michael Phelps’s “cupping” ritual; and she tests some of the most controversial methods herself, including cryochambers, float tanks, and infrared saunas.</p><br /><p>At a time when the latest recovery products and services promise so much, <em>Good to Go</em> seeks answers to the fundamental question: Do any of them actually help the body recover and achieve peak performance?</p>

<b>From a two-time Olympic coach and creator of the Pose Method who has trained the running elite, an essential guide for all runners seeking to go faster and farther without injury</b><br /><br /> Christopher McDougall’s <i>Born to Run</i>—and the wildly popular natural running trend it sparked—changed the way we think about running, but it has also prompted many questions: Have we been running the wrong way? And, have we been running in the wrong kind of shoe? What is the safest type of foot strike? How many types are there? And what is a foot strike anyway? No existing guide has clearly addressed these concerns—until now. <i>The Running Revolutio</i>n provides both beginning and experienced runners with everything they need to know in order to safely and efficiently transition to and master a safer and more biomechanically efficient way of running that is guaranteed to improve performance and minimize wear and tear on the body.  <br /><br /> More than a one-size-fits-all guide, <i>The Running Revolutio</i>n provides readers with clear instructions, complete with helpful illustrations, that they can easily integrate into their unique running histories in order to run safely, intelligently, and efficiently for many years to come.
