By embarking on a quest to dunk a basketball at the age of 34, journalist Asher Price investigates the limits of human potential—starting with his own. We all like to think that (with a little practice) we could run faster, learn another language, or whip up a perfect soufflé. But few of us ever put those hopes to the test. In Year of the Dunk, Asher Price does, and he seizes on basketball’s slam dunk--a feat richly freighted with distinctly American themes of culture, race, and upward mobility--as a gauge to determine his own hidden potential. The showmanship of the dunk mesmerized Asher as a child, but even with his height (six foot plus) and impressive wingspan, he never pushed himself to try it. Now, approaching middle age, Asher decides to spend a year remaking his body and testing his mind as he wonders, like most adults, what untapped talent he still possesses. In this humorous and often poignant journey into the pleasures and perils of exertion, Asher introduces us to a memorable cast of characters who help him understand the complexity of the human body and the individual drama at the heart of sports. Along the way he dives into the history and science of one of sports' most exuberant acts, examining everything from our genetic predisposition towards jumping to the cultural role of the slam dunk. The year-long effort forces him to ask some fundamental questions about human ability and the degree to which we can actually improve ourselves, even with great determination. From the Hardcover edition.

Ο Ιππότης των Επτά Βασιλείων λαμβάνει χώρα σχεδόν έναν αιώνα πριν από τα γεγονότα του Game of Thronesκαι περιλαμβάνει τρεις ιστορίες που αποτελούν το προοίμιο του αριστουργήματος του George R. R. Martin με τίτλο Το Τραγούδι της Φωτιάς και του Πάγου. Οι περιπέτειες αυτές, που παρουσιάζονται για πρώτη φορά συγκεντρωμένες σε έναν τόμο, αφηγούνται γεγονότα από την εποχή που η δυναστεία των Ταργκάρυεν εξακολουθεί να κατέχει τον Σιδερένιο Θρόνο και οι μνήμες από την ύπαρξη της τελευταίας δράκαινας παραμένουν ακόμη ζωντανές. Ο νεαρός, αφελής, αλλά γενναίος περιπλανώμενος ιππότης σερ Ντάνκαν ο Ψηλός υπερέχει των αντιπάλων του – αν όχι σε πείρα, σίγουρα σε ανάστημα. Στις περιπέτειές του τον συνοδεύει ο μικροσκοπικός του ακόλουθος, ένα αγόρι ονόματι Εγκ – του οποίου το πραγματικό όνομα (και επτασφράγιστο μυστικό) είναι Αίγκον Ταργκάρυεν. Παρόλο που σε ολόκληρο το Γουέστερος δύσκολα θα έβρισκε κανείς πιο απίθανους ήρωες, το μέλλον επιφυλάσσει σε αυτούς τους δύο ένα σπουδαίο πεπρωμένο… καθώς και ισχυρούς εχθρούς, βασιλικές ίντριγκες κι εξωφρενικά κατορθώματα.

New York City, the early 1990s: the recession is in full swing and young people are squatting in abandoned buildings in the East Village while the homeless riot in Tompkins Square Park. The Internet is not part of daily life; the term "dot-com" has yet to be coined; and people's financial bubbles are burst for an entirely different set of reasons. What can all this mean for a young Midwestern man flush with promise, toiling at a thankless, poverty-wage job in corporate America, and hard at work on his first novel about acute knee pain and the end of the world? With The Year of Endless Sorrows, acclaimed playwright and finalist for the 2003 William Saroyan International Prize for Writing Adam Rapp brings readers a hilarious picaresque reminiscent of Nick Hornby, Douglas Copeland, and Rick Moody at their best—a chronicle of the joys of love, the horrors of sex, the burden of roommates, and the rude discovery that despite your best efforts, life may not unfold as you had once planned.

Then he dabbed his finger with the blood from his lip. "My blood, shed for you," he whispered. She took his finger into her mouth and curled tongue, aroused, tasting of the salty, tangy iron. Then she leaned over to kiss him.-From Of Christ and Orwell Delve into the unconventional imagination of Tigre Scott, filled with short stories of relationships of different flavors, all written from the heart, mind and groin. Often poetic and lyrical, and, at times, humorous, Scott captures emotion and thought, while venturing into uncharted territories. Several of Scott's stories have been work-shopped on Zoetrope.com, an on-line magazine created by Francis Coppola. Real Doll received a high score from reviewers for its originality, while others considered The Big Drop and Human Wreckage as "excellent" and "well-written" stories. Scott goes beneath the surface of his characters' external worlds, providing both clarity and meaning behind their motivations, dreams and aspirations.

A lively and informative guide to a year of wine enjoyment and appreciation from acclaimed wine expert and blogger Tyler Colman, aka "Dr. Vino" In A Year of Wine, award-winning educator Tyler "Dr. Vino" Colman, whose wine blog was hailed by Food & Wine magazine as "one of the seven best," views winter, spring, summer, and fall through the glass of his favorite impact-resistant stemware, pairing each month with its perfect ports, Pinots, and bubblies -- and offering good value recommendations for them all. Throughout, Colman reminds readers to try to pair their pours with context, which is wildly underrated when it comes to enjoying your favorite bottle. And while people tend naturally to drink lighter, more refreshing wines during the warm months and heavier, more serious wines during the winter months, Colman takes the seasonal approach a step further by offering innovative recommendations and enlightening facts that will allow readers to impress their friends for twelve months straight. Is there a perfect wine to serve with chips and salsa on Super Bowl Sunday? Which bottles will help you drown away your tax- day blues without blowing your new budget? Colman answers these questions and much more as he pairs wines with each season, occasion, and moment. Recommending thoughtful and affordable wines for special celebrations and everyday enjoyment, offering tips on beginning a wine collection or spring cleaning the one you have, exploring how to drink with the smallest possible carbon footprint, and explaining how to maximize your wine experience when you dine out, Colman makes wine easy to understand and, most important, to savor. Colman also shares the secret gems of his favorite wine tourism destinations -- where to find the best wine shops in Paris, which Portuguese vintners still crush grapes with their bare feet, and how you can take a ten-tasting-room tour with one stop in a tiny Oregon town -- and turns to some of the country's top sommeliers for their take on wine appreciation as well. Perfect for both seasoned wine enthusiasts and oenophobes, A Year of Wine is an innovative approach that will encourage readers to drink outside the bottle.

T.R. Shannon joined the San Jose California Highway Patrol in July 1966, and transferred to the San Andreas Area CHP office two years later, where he’d stay for the next twenty-one years. During that time, he drove about 750,000 miles on state highways and county roads, patrolling the most varied climate and terrain in California. Through hot summers, freezing winters, in the mountains, and in the grasslands, he thought fast, navigated ethical quandaries, and believed in and always strived to enforce the law without fear or favor. In this collection of 128 short stories, he looks back at high-speed pursuits, heart-breaking traffic accidents, physical confrontations, unsolved murders, and other events—from the routine to the unbelievable. Some of the people he arrested—and some of the people he saw die—he shed no tears for, but others—like the first person he arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, earned his sympathy. An officer’s job involves much more than writing tickets, investigating sometimes minor—but too often tragic—traffic accidents, and helping disabled motorists—although all those things are critical parts of the job highlighted in Cow County Chip.
