The 12 Week Triathlete, 2nd Edition-Revised and Updated

Too many triathlon books are incredibly technical with heart rate zones and advanced power metrics. These technical books have training plans that read like novels with 8 various sub workouts on a given day at all sorts of exact times and paces that are tough to get right. I spent some time at a bookstore flipping through probably 20 different triathlon books and this was the one that stuck out to me as including some training plans ...

Improving Palliative Care for Cancer

This book examines the barriers—scientific, policy, and social—that keep those in need from getting good palliative care.

The Dao of Taijiquan: Way to Rejuvenation

This book is a must for any serious Tai Chi player. I have many Tai Chi books in my collection (mostly in Chinese), and this one is probably one of the best. Although words cannot explain the experience of Tai Chi just like one cannot describe what sugar tastes like, the book offers some practical tips and scientific perspective.

" Lucien Demeillès dans cet ouvrage " exercice de musculation " nous propose des dessins qui n'exigent pas des descriptions longues et ennuyeuses. Auteur...

"Written by one of the foremost historians of family caregiving, illness trajectories, and death and dying, this is an incredibly insightful and important book that will remind a wide range of readers that dying is a long, emotional process for many families. I applaud Abel's conclusion that we as a society can no longer ignore the process of living while dying."
