<strong></strong><strong></strong><strong></strong><strong></strong><p><strong>The most profound work of spiritual wisdom ever written. The most readable and reliable version available.</strong></p><p>The <em>Tao Te Ching </em>was written 2,500 years ago, yet it speaks directly and powerfully to our contemporary lives. Why are our lives so difficult? How can we return to a place of harmony and balance? What is our true and essential nature? Who are we <em>really</em>? These are the kinds of questions the Tao Te Ching asks—and answers.</p><p>This is an original translation from the ancient Chinese text specifically intended to accurately reflect the original text while at the same time being easy to read and understand in English. </p><p>There are a lot of translations out there, so let the buyer beware—many of the older translations are misleading and difficult to read, while many of the newer versions take liberties with the text, so much so that they can hardly be said to be accurate reflections of the book at all. Translator John R. Mabry worked closely with a native Chinese speaker and expert in traditional Chinese religion in order to provide the most accurate and easy-to-read translation possible.</p><p>Dr. Mabry is a professor of World Religions and comparative theology. He holds a doctorate in Philosophy and Religion, specializing in Taoism and Hinduism.</p><p><em>As a sample, here is the first poem:</em></p><p>The Tao that can be described in words is not the true Tao<br />The Name that can be named is not the true Name.<br />From non-existence were called Heaven and Earth<br />From existence all things were born.</p><p>In being without desires, you experience the wonder<br />But by having desires, you experience the journey.<br />Yet both spring from the same source and differ mostly in name.</p><p>This source is called "Mystery"<br />Mystery upon Mystery,<br />The womb giving birth to all of being.<br /></p><p><strong>This ebook is FREE when you purchase the paperback!</strong></p><strong></strong><strong></strong><strong></strong>

Track & Field is mostly a sprint sport. All things being equal, speed<br />usually wins the race. The pure sprint events include the 100 meters,<br />200 meters, 400 meters, and the 4x100 and 4x400 relays. Sprint speed<br />is also a crucial component of the hurdles, horizontal jumps, pole vault,<br />and middle distances. All told, these comprise 12 Track & Field events.<br />To have winning teams, you must be able to teach and train your<br />athletes to run with speed.<br /><br />How to Train Sprinters by Coach Jay Edwards is the book that teaches coaches the process of challenging their athlete to become sprinters of the hishest order.<br /><br />Basketball coaches have been known to say, “you can’t coach height, so you better recruit it!” Similarly, coaches and athletes in all sports have surrendered to the belief that speed, like height, is a trait predetermined by genetics and something which cannot be improved much by training. The truth is that speed can be significantly improved through training and an awareness of the essential techniques common to the fastest sprinters. The development of running speed is not simply a gift of genetics. Speed is a skill, and it can be learned and developed by athletes at every level of competition.

<b><i>Judo for Soldiers Illustrated</i></b><br />After Pearl Harbor and the U.S. entry into WWII, there was a need for troops to be taught how to prevail in Hand-to-Hand combat with the enemy. This book, written by the author of "<i>Police Jiu-Jitsu</i>", sought to fill this void by presenting some basic and practical Judo moves that could aid a soldier who might come face to face with the enemy.<br /><br />Well organized, and presented in a 'you are in the training class at boot camp' fashion complete with fellow soldiers from Detroit, the Bronx and even the Mid-west, it offers examples of simple hold releases and counters for many fighting scenarios and situations. Clear illustrations give a good sense of how the techniques are employed, which makes it easy to see how you would do them yourself.<br /><br />A gem of a book, especially for students of martial arts history and World War 2 era combat technique. It even features a small section at the end showing several moves especially for women and demonstrated in the same narrative style using WAAC recruits learning self-defense.

Follow the passion and the dream will come true… <br />Author Marion N. Seidel understands the power of passion and the reality of dreams coming true! Her first life dream was to work with horses. Realizing that dream as a jockey is all that she could ever imagine. Her second dream was to live in sunny South Florida which she accomplished a few short years later! Fantasy has no place in Marion’s life other than to create the beautiful canvas from which she paints her dreams. <br /><br />In a touching part memoir, part training guide, author Marion N.Seidel opens the doors and our hearts to the exciting world of thoroughbred horse racing! In leaving her beloved Germany to live in America, Ms. Seidel soon realized working in the U.S. horse racing market is vastly different than working in the European market. Not knowing the English language is only one barrier she overcomes — just as easily as she sails across the finish lines as an exercise rider! <br /><br />As she compares the two styles of horse racing, European and American, Marion N. Seidel creates a captivating portrait offering a tantalizing glimpse of luxury, sport, and equestrian excellence! Get your copy of RACE HORSE TRAINING: COMPARED and enter the breathtaking world of thoroughbred horse training from a professional who knows her industry and her handsome horses like nobody’s business!
