Taking seriously the idea that baseball is a study in failure - a very successful batter manages a base hit in just three of every 10 attempts - Mark Kingwell argues that there is no better tutor of human failure´s enduring significance than this strange, crooked game of base, where geometry becomes poetry. Weaving elements of memoir, philosophical reflection, sports writing, and humour, Fail Better is an intellectual love letter to baseball by one of North America´s most engaging philosophers. Kingwell illustrates complex concepts like theoretically infinite game-space, ´´time out of time´´, and the rules of civility with accessible examples drawn from the game, its history, and his own halting efforts to hit ´em where they ain´t. Beyond a ´´Beckett meets baseball´´ study in failure, Kingwell crafts a thoughtful appreciation of why sports matter and how they change our vision of the world. Never pretentious, always entertaining, Fail Better is set to be the homerun nonfiction title of the season. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jerry Lord.

Mike Daisey is a fierce storyteller, one minute hilarious, the next minute sweet, with a fine-tuned ear for digression. He circles in on his uneasy subject matter, closer and closer, until he exposes the raw heart. The New York Times calls him ´´the master storyteller´´ and he has been compared to Garrison Keillor, Spalding Gray, and David Sedaris. In these seven monologues, recorded before live audiences at New York´s Performance Space 122, Daisey tells true stories from his life that range from the terrible beauty of his rural Maine hometown, to shipping weapons to the Middle East, to the unintentionally hilarious dangers of defending free speech.in Just as the Light Fails, Mike explores his obsession with light bulbs and their constant replacement when an uninvited visitor wreaks havoc on his home. A lecture at the International Rescue Committee leads to surprising conclusions about the nature of lunch, and an old job illegally smuggling missile triggers to the Middle East is described with unsettling honesty. 1.

If you had told me two years ago that such a small change in my diet would yield such a big difference in my health, I would have laughed right in your face! (Chris Randall; Vegan) In The Vegan Solution: Why the Vegan Diet Often Fails and How to Fix It, prolific author Matt Stone shares his pioneering research on the role of metabolic rate in health as applied to a vegan diet. In the book you´ll learn about ´´The Frigid Fourteen´´ - fourteen metabolism-lowering mistakes that are frequently being committed in the vegan world. These simple, misguided mistakes are commonplace and extremely detrimental to the metabolic rate and all of the body´s systems affected by it. Yet they are all simple to fix, returning the body back to proper function, oftentimes while remaining completely vegan. Popular Youtube vlogger Chris Randall, who lost 150 pounds and rid himself of many chronic health issues and has had a sensational return to health with a vegan diet, also chimes in with his personal experience and advice after applying many of Stone´s methods. Randall has spent many months as a personal client of Stone´s, and has seen his body temperature return to normal, his strength and sex drive is soaring like never before, and he is getting progressively leaner and healthier eating in excess of 4,000 calories daily - far more than he was eating prior. In the book you´ll find out how you, vegan or not, can apply the same methods and achieve similar results - all with changes so minor it will seem far-fetched that it could actually yield such dramatic changes. The common negatives you hear about a vegan diet - losing muscle mass and strength, hair loss, horrendous digestion, tooth decay, freezing cold hands and feet, frequent urination, insomnia, dry skin, loss of menstruation and sex drive, and more are things most assume to be a consequence of avoiding animal products. Stone and Randall propose otherwise and aim for 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matt Stone. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/008009/bk_acx0_008009_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
