<b> A Collection of Thoughts, Sayings and Meditations on the Way of the Samurai </b> <p> "It is said that what is called "the spirit of an age" is something to which one cannot return. That this spirit gradually dissipates is due to the world's coming to an end. For this reason, although one would like to change today's world back to the spirit of one hundred years or more ago, it cannot be done. Thus it is important to make the best out of every generation." <i> — Tsunetomo Yamamoto, Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai </i> <p> A formerly secret text known only to the Samurai, Hagakure is a classic text on Bushido--the Way of the Warrior. More than just a handbook for battle, Hagakure is a text that filled with teachings that still apply in business, political and social situations today. <br /> This Xist Classics edition has been professionally formatted for e-readers with a linked table of contents. This ebook also contains a bonus book club leadership guide and discussion questions. We hope you’ll share this book with your friends, neighbors and colleagues and can’t wait to hear what you have to say about it.

We were not born to run. If we were, injury rates among runners wouldn't be so high. Of the 12 million runners in the United States, the annual injury rate is close to 50%. This translates into nearly 2 million stress fractures and 4 million sprains/strains. To run injury-free for decades, you have to be strong, coordinated and most of all, well informed. While various experts will give you advice based on anecdotal information (e.g., wear minimalist shoes, strike on your midfoot, and never stretch), with over 200 illustrations and 240 references, this book reviews the scientific literature to show you how to:<br /><br />~Develop a running form based on your alignment, prior injuries, and desired running speed.<br />~Design a personalized rehab program you can do at home by evaluating your arch height, flexibility, strength, and coordination.<br />~Choose a running shoe that is right for you.<br />~Select the best preexercise warm-up routine.<br />~Treat 25 of the most common running injuries with the most up-to-date , scientifically justified treatment protocols available.<br /><br />Praise for Injury-Free Running:<br /><br />"Dr. Michaud's experience with athletes has been long running and highly praised. His vast knowledge of the human body and understanding of biomechanics will help you achieve your peak potential. This book is a great resource for athletes of all ages and abilities." -Joan Benoit Samuelson, world record holder in the marathon from 1983-1985, and gold medalist in the 1984 Olympics.<br /><br />"From personal experience, I know that Dr. Tom Michaud is an expert on the biomechanics of this wonderful sport. If you love running, you will love this book." -Uta Pippig, Olympian and three-time winner of the Boston Marathon.<br /><br />"Dr. Michaud kept me running through the toughest parts of my career. The information in this book can help runners of all levels remain injury-free." -Tegla Laroupe, women's world record holder in the marathon from 1998-2001<br /><br />Injury-Free Running is written and illustrated by Dr. Thomas Michaud. Dr. Michaud has published numerous book chapters and dozens of journal articles on subjects ranging from the treatment of tibial stress fractures in runners, to the conservative management of shoulder injuries in baseball players. In 1993, Williams and Wilkins published Dr. Michaud's first textbook, Foot Orthoses and Other Forms of Conservative Foot Care, which has been translated into four languages and continues to be used in physical therapy, chiropractic, pedorthic, and podiatry schools around the world. His latest textbook, Human Locomotion: The Conservative management of Gait-Related Disorders, has over 1100 references and is one of the most detailed reviews of running biomechanics ever published.

"Delightfully addictive barn drama." - HorseNation.com<br /><br />Grace has built her life on show horses. It's been a good life, too -- she mounts her wealthy students on European warmbloods, competes her horses on Florida's rigorous A-circuit, and runs the nicest barn in the neighborhood. Then, suddenly, it's the only barn in the neighborhood.<br /><br />As Grace's country town becomes a sun-drenched playground of pools and golf courses, she vows that no bulldozer will ever touch her farm. With her neighbors selling their farms and moving to more isolated corners of Florida, she finds herself fighting off land-hungry developers alone -- until Kennedy comes along.<br /><br />Kennedy is everything Grace doesn't want around her bustling show barn -- a pleasure rider who would rather wander in the woods than tackle a show-jumping course. Kennedy might make for an unlikely sidekick, but she's just the inspiration Grace needs to fight back against the developers who want to bulldoze her corner of Floridian wilderness -- and, eventually, against the wilderness itself.
