LONGLISTED FOR THE WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD SHORTLISTED FOR THE CROSS SPORTS BOOK AWARDS BIOGRAPHY OF THE YEAR The definitive biography of one of the greatest, most extraordinary runners and Olympic heroes of all time, from the author of running classic Feet in the Clouds. Emil Zátopek won five Olympic medals, set 18 world records, and went undefeated over 10,000 metres for six years. He redefined the boundaries of endurance, training in Army boots, in snow, in sand, in darkness. But his toughness was matched by a spirit of friendship and a joie de vivre that transcended the darkest days of the Cold War. His triumphs put his country on the map, yet when Soviet tanks moved in to crush Czechoslovakia's new freedoms in 1968, Zátopek paid a heavy personal price for his brave defence of 'socialism with a human face'. Rehabilitated two decades later, he was a shadow of the man he had been - and the world had all but forgotten him. Today We Die A Little strips away the myths to tell the complex and deeply moving story of the most inspiring Olympic hero of them all.

The book opens up with my thoughts on why relationships today are a joke. I talk about how they have broken down over the years. How there is no affection, no love towards each other. It is all about lust and sex nowadays. All we do is get it done, in and out so to speak. This is how it is with these relationships today. There are points that are made that could enable you to have a better relationship if you choose to accept them. Trust me, when you are in a good relationship you tend to think, feel, love, hug, kiss, rest, relax, trust, communicate, and be happier with life. Thank you for purchasing this book!

In August 2008, two vehicles and 4 people, shipped themselves from Sydney, Australia, to the far east of Russia, Vladivostok to be precise and then drove to London. Once there, 2 of the 4 drove back. On the way they experienced extraordinary adventures; hilarious, dramatic, disastrous, dangerous and miraculous. These included, visa disasters, police run ins, getting lost, running out of diesel, camping, managing disastrous break downs, meeting the locals, and buying a cow. They also met the fabled takhi, barely escaped imprisonment, nearly asphyxiated themselves in a ger, endured nightly visitations of curious locals, bought black market diesel, drove through deep mud, deep sand, over frozen rivers, through sand storms, endured unspeakable latrines and bought a Bankhar puppy. At the end of their trek they’d covered 40,000 kilometres, used 4,500 litres of diesel, and camped out in Russia, the Ukraine and Mongolia for a total of 36 nights, over a combined period of 4 months.

A Little Book of Revelations

This book is a radical reappraisal of the Christian life-style. It returns to the Bible as the most realistic template for practical Christian living. It confronts many of the practices that stifle Christian effectiveness, unlocking the small print of "how to" live a simple, consistent Christian life. God's single provision of "Jesus only in all things" is shown to be both practical and possible, every chapter helping us to unclutter our lives and accomplish the destiny God planned for us from the beginning of time. This book "Settles the unsettled, and unsettles the settled."

Nothing lies beyond the scope of your ability. The new design for living you create has no limitations. Literally all the good things that life and the world offer are yours to have and enjoy. But you need to recognize them, accept them, and incorporate them into the new design you are now going to create. In its scope, and in its effect on readers, A New Design for Living is second only to Ernest Holmes's magnum opus, The Science of Mind. In this cherished spiritual classic, Holmes demonstrates that wishes-from health, love, and friendship to the career and home of your dreams-are not only possible to realize but are within each person's very reach. At last available again, this galvanizing book teaches how to turn mind-power into an infinitely positive force-the very force of creation itself. Harmonize with the beauty and intelligence of the universe, watch the magnificence of life transform before you, and awaken to the nature of reality. With this newfound power of transformative thinking, every goal is attainable.
