Selected as the #1 book in diet/exercise for 2015 by USA Best Book Awards. We start out with the best intentions. We're going to exercise more and get in shape! Then five days a week at the gym turns into two... then becomes none. We hit the snooze button and skip the morning run. We really do want to be healthy and fit, but we're over whelmed and overextended—and exercise feels like another chore to complete. Is it any wonder we don't stick with it? Behavior expert Michelle Segar has devoted her career to the science of motivation. In No Sweat, she reveals that while "better health" or "weight loss" sound like strong incentives, human beings are hardwired to choose immediate gratification over delayed benefits. In other words, we're not going to exercise unless it makes us happy right now. So what's the solution? To achieve lasting fitness, we have to change our minds—before we can change our bodies. In No Sweat, Segar shows us how. Translating twenty years of research on exercise and motivation into a simple four-point program, she helps readers broaden their definition of exercise, find pleasure in physical activity, and discover realistic ways to fit it into their lives. Activities we enjoy, we repeat—making this evidence-based system more sustainable in the long run than a regimen of intense workouts. Even if we don't sweat, we really benefit. The success of the clients Segar has coached testifies to the power of her program. Their stories punctuate the book, entertaining and emboldening readers to break the cycle of exercise failure once and for all. Complete with worksheets, tips, and techniques, getting in shape has never been so easy—or so much fun. Instructors can find the No Sweat Teaching and Discussion Guideon Michelle Segar’s Website:

Now frequently anthologized, Zora Neale Hurston's short story "Sweat" was first published in Firell, a legendary literary magazine of the Harlem Renaissance, whose sole issue appeared in November 1926. Among contributions by Gwendolyn Bennett, Countee Cullen, Langston Hughes, and Wallace Thurman, "Sweat" stood out both for its artistic accomplishment and its exploration of rural Southern black life. In "Sweat" Hurston claimed the voice that animates her mature fiction, notably the 1937 novel Their Eyes Were Watching God; the themes of marital conflict and the development of spiritual consciousness were introduced as well. "Sweat" exemplifies Hurston's lifelong concern with women's relation to language and the literary possibilities of black vernacular. This casebook for the story includes an introduction by the editor, a chronology of the author's life, the authoritative text of "Sweat," and a second story, "The Gilded Six-Bits." Published in 1932, this second story was written after Hurston had spent years conducting fieldwork in the Southern United States. The volume also includes Hurston's groundbreaking 1934 essay, "Characteristics of Negro Expression," and excerpts from her autobiography, Dust Tracks on a Road. An article by folklorist Roger Abrahams provides additional cultural contexts for the story, as do selected blues and spirituals. Critical commentary comes from Alice Walker, who led the recovery of Hurston's work in the 1970s, Robert Hemenway, Henry Louis Gates, Gayl Jones, John Lowe, Kathryn Seidel, and Mary Helen Washington.

"Hey Budgie, do you want to travel around south-east Asia with me?" "Sure!" One word. Just one. Even saying "I do" when getting married gives you the chance of bailing out halfway through your answer. No second chances here though, I was well and truly up the creek. And never mind the paddle, boys, I didn't even have a canoe! Without knowing which countries we were going to (not that it would have made much difference), I was about to embark on five months worth of pain, misery, excitement, enjoyment, extreme cold, extreme heat, jungles, mountains, deserts, elephants and camels. And complaining. LOTS of complaining! A constant stream of whining, moaning and whinging, performed almost exclusively by myself, and all carefully documented within SWEAT. Still, that's what being an ambassador for the western world is all about. Isn't it? Truly a 'once in a lifetime' experience!

This selection of Churchill's oratory demonstrates the development of Churchill's style from the laboriously crafted utterings of the young MP, to the moment when, as Prime Minister in 1940, he mobilized the English language and sent it into battle. Unsuccessful speeches characteristic of earlier stages of his career and personality are also included.

Being the child of a global superstar is never easy. Being the daughter of the Godfather of Soul—that’s a category unto itself. Like every little girl, Yamma Brown wanted her father’s attention, but fame, drugs, jail, and the complicated women in James Brown’s life set the stage for an uncommon childhood. Cold Sweat is about how Yamma rose to meet every challenge. Though packed with celebrity appearances ranging from Michael Jackson to Al Sharpton, Cold Sweat is not just a celebrity book. It focuses on an everyday issue faced by millions of women—domestic violence—and in this book Yamma faces it in an honest and powerfully moving way. Dealing with a complex and famous father eventually took a backseat to coping with her own abusive and deceitful marriage. Cold Sweat is about how Yamma got caught in the same trap as her mother, doing things in her adult life that, as a child, she’d promised herself she’d never do. But at the same time, Yamma learned valuable lessons about life from her father. The struggles she went through, both as a child and as an adult, make for a gripping read and, in the end, a profound examination of the nature of celebrity, violence, and survival.

Get in there and experience what is involved on a personal level! That is what Dr. Herm Zandman thought when his curiosity was spiked as he saw the big heavy haulage vehicles thunder along the highways of Australia. During his early immigration days to New Zealand he had already experienced heavy haulage driving as an owner-driver before returning to his fi eld, education. Now he wondered what the little-known world of interstate trucking was like. As he tried to fi nd books to read on the subject, he discovered that nothing was available! This was a challenge not to be denied. The fruit of Herm's questioning mind is Blood Sweat and Gears. The title encapsulates much of what is daily reality to heavy haulage truckers as the content shows. ,br> Humorous and challenging are the encounters and observations made as he maneuvered his B-Double (B-Train) through the Australian country side and cities. An effort is also made to create a better understanding and harmony between the behemoth operators and other participants in traffic. Prior to embarking on this research venture, Herm spent many years in teaching at schools in Holland, New Zealand, and Australia. He and his wife currently reside in South Australia.
