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

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 Hunter's Cookbook: 101 Delicious Wild Game Recipes - Large Game - By Goce Nikolovski
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Wild or farmed, venison is always a first-rate meat choice. Free-range and pasture-fed, it has a slightly finer grain than beef. If you have only ever tasted venison in the customary red wine... More > marinade stew, you might have found it too robust – but don't be put off. Venison is very lean, so either cook it fast and high, or add extra fat to keep it moist. It has more protein than any other red meat, which means that it sates the appetite really well. It is also particularly rich in iron (moreso than beef), which prevents anaemia and is good for energy levels. It's full of B vitamins: B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin), which help regulate metabolism; and vitamin B6 and B12, which may lower homocysteine build-up in the blood, thus lowering the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Thanks to all the wild and pasture food that deer eat, the small amount of fat in venison is likely to contain high levels of conjugated linoleic acid, which is thought to protect against heart disease and cancer.< Less
