eBook (ePub): $9.99
SURFSKI: Perfecting your Technique is targeted at paddlers keen to evolve their stroking action, with the objective of enhancing stability and achieving boat speed. A perfect technique, one that is... More > smooth and effortless is the dream of every individual and once achieved, draws the attention and admiration of paddling peers. Because there is plenty to learn, it is sensible to develop good technique from the outset. Once a stroke is embedded into muscle memory, it can take drawn out interventions to deconstruct and change. Style can depend on the conditions in which you are mostly active, such as downwind or predominantly flat water. Good technique sets the best paddlers apart from the rest. Key to achieving a perfect technique is to use a craft and wing bladed paddle appropriate to your paddling personality. These must support your level of competency and at the same time provide a springboard for optimisation.< Less

Surfski: Paddling Downwind By Kevin Brunette
eBook (ePub): $9.99
SURFSKI: Paddling Downwind is targeted at individuals keen to unravel the secrets of downwind. It takes considerable skill to anticipate the swell patterns generated by the wind and find a path... More > through the heaving crests and troughs, but the outcome is being able to link one run with the next. The sea has unrelenting power, demanding precision and effort to negotiate a safe downwind passage on a self-propelled craft. Many factors come into consideration, including the: • wind direction, strength and gust strength • swell direction and size • interaction between the wind and ocean swell • craft used and the need for self-sufficiency A downwind activity in extreme conditions of wind and sea will test your full range of competencies, particularly your mental resolve. A downwind proficiency might seem a distant goal to hope for, but difficult to realise. With a downwind competency, you can appreciate the freedom of the open ocean, with its never-ending changes and challenges.< Less

Great Cricketers Series: Ravi Shastri By Students’ Academy
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Ravi Shastri was an all–rounder who batted right-handed and bowled left arm spin. His international career started when he was 18 years old and lasted for 12 years. He started his career purely... More > as a bowler but gradually became more of a batsman who could bowl. As a batsman, he was essentially defensive with the "chapati shot" (a flick off the pads) being his trademark shot, but could raise his strike rate when required. Due to his above-average height (he stood 6' 3" tall) and an upright stance, he had a limited number of shots against fast bowling, but was able to put the lofted shot to good use against spin bowling. Shastri played either as an opening batsman or in the middle order.< Less
Great Cricketers Series: Virender Sehwag By Students’ Academy
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Virender Sehwag, commonly called Viru, is one of the most dangerous hard hitting batsmen in the world cricket. He come to the world cricket scene with his unorthodox stroke play and long lofted... More > shots. He has achieved many landmarks in his career of about ten years. Virender Sehwag is the only Indian batsman to have scored two triple centuries. He has the highest run rate in the world. Not only known as a hard hitting opening batsman, Virender Sehwag is a very useful off spin bowler. He was highly inspired by Great Sachin Tendulkar when Virender Sehwag started playing cricket for the Delhi Team. He openly admits that he wanted to emulate Sachin but he had never imagined that he would be recognized as the game changing batsman. It is believed that if Virender Sehwag succeeds in playing twenty overs as a batsman, the game slips from the hands of the rival team. He is in his best of the form and playing all three forms of the cricket. His records in One Day cricket are really amazing.< Less
Gross Physiology of the Cardiovascular System By Robert Anderson
Paperback: $7.56
Prints in 3-5 business days
A groundbreaking, global overview of the mechanical function of the cardiovascular system, as featured at the http://cardiac-output.info website. This text explains fundamental but often... More > misunderstood concepts, such as: the unique hydraulic characteristics of the heart as a pump and the cardiovascular system; the determinants of cardiac output; the mechanism that maintains blood volume equilibrium between the systemic and pulmonary circuits; and the primary contribution of the atria to circulation rate. Distilled from decades of research and surgical experience by Dr. Robert M. Anderson -- a pioneer heart surgeon, biomedical inventor, award-winning professor, and former Associate Dean of the University of Arizona College of Medicine -- the text is a far more explanatory and predictive account than the conventional model featured in many basic physiology textbooks (with its often misleading focus on incomplete parameters such as preload, afterload, contractility, and stroke rate times stroke volume).< Less
The Protein Plague By Markus Heinrich Rehbach
eBook (ePub): $2.99
This book is all about the perils of high protein diets, fructose, meat, eggs, and milk. This book will probably surprise you as much as I was surprised when researching it. The good news is that it... More > is much simpler to gain the optimal nutrition than we have been mislead to believe. No more worries about 'am I getting enough protein'. This book explains the modern Western epidemics of cancer, osteoporosis, kidney disease, obesity, arthritis, depression, anxiety, hyper-tension, heart disease (heart attacks and strokes), and senescence, in the context of the recent massive overdoses of protein, especially from animal sources, that have become the new norm. In evolutionary terms such high protein diets are new. We simply have not evolved in a high protein diet environment. This fact appears to be mirrored in cancer rates that are today many thousands of times higher than they were just a few generations ago.< Less
