5-0 out of 5 stars Bicycle repair and maintenance
Excellant manual! Great info and well illistrated. I use mine a lot!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book... could be better...
This book does a great job covering everything basic to intermediate.I'd highly recommend it and I think that it's the best I've seen in this price range.It's not Barnett's manual but it is better than the Park tools and Zinn books in my opinion.I'd like to see more (and better quality) pictures.I've seen high rescolor pictures in books half this price.

4-0 out of 5 stars Complete, well-written, easy-to-understand.
I like doing repairs and maintenance myself to save money. Now that I have a good bicycle, I want to service it myself. This repair manual is nice. It is full of good illustrations and pictures, tips, and advice. Most things are explained in an easy-to-understand manner. It's obvious that the author likes servicing bicycles, and that he wants the reader to enjoy it too. This makes the book pleasant reading material as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Loved it
This book is a great follow up to Little Green Book.There are 74 hands from real life play that Phil explains in detail so that you can learn while the situation unfolds.I like how Phil reduces the hands to their basic fundamentals and reinforces those key lessons in each hand - I think taking the complexity out of certain situations is key to success in real play, especially when there are so many emotional and maybe physical stresses on a players concentration once they are in the live situation.I have found myself facing many of the same situations that are in this book, and it was insightful and sometimes reassuring to see how a real professional handles the same hand.Overall a great addition to my poker literature.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
A very easy read for those of us that want to learn more about poker but, can't take too much theory.Great format.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book from a great teacher

Overall the photos were done with excellent taste. Was it worth the $$, I would say no. Does it provide a great conversation for anyone that walks into the living room and sees it on the coffee table? YES

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!

I'm not sure why the publish date is listed as Jan. 1, 1992.The cover clearly shows the publish date as October, 1970.
3-0 out of 5 stars Um, You Don't Have To Pay For This.
This, like many other military manuals, is available online.Just type the FM number into your search box and a list of links to it will magically appear.

1-0 out of 5 stars A true disappointment.
This book is very disappointing. Poorly written and with weak descriptions leaves the inexperienced outdoorsmen with a false sense of security. Just because there happens to be a section on a particular skill does not translate into the ability of the reader to follow the lousy instructions to complete said skill. If anyone wants to learn survival skills they would be well suited to take a course and view first-hand the execution of the skills by an experienced practitioner of them. Purchase another book and let this one pass. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
This book was exactly what I was looking for.I play softball regularly and am approaching the age of 50, and I was looking for specific stretches to help me prepare to play.The book contains specific instructions and illustrations and is easy to folllow.Their are specific stretches to help with all kinds of activities, and the author has a long history of working with athletes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Indispensable to fitness for all ages and sports.
In the good old days of typewriters, carbon papers, and stencil sheets, literary authorship served society at highest ethical, scientific, and artistic standards. In contrast, today's word processors and graphic software attracted to the field of book publishing plenty of con artists and commercial profiteers. This book on stretching by Anderson demonstrates the utmost dedication of its author to public welfare. Without sophisticated cameras or elegant graphing capabilities, the author was able to present all aspects of motion of human stretching by relying on hand-drawn sketches.
5-0 out of 5 stars Essential to workout injury free
It you enjoy running, walking of jogging you must stretch. If you like weightlifting you must stretch. If you play any kind of sport,.. again you must stretch. And guess what if you are not currently engaged in any physical activity, still will benefit a lot from stretching.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good job
The authors do a very good job of explaining how your body, and more importantly, your muscles work, all with their "Men's Health" flare. The beginning of the book goes over a foundation of your muscles and the different types, which really set the tone for the rest of the book. Later in the book, they do go into specific detail on exercises and do's & dont's for beginners, intermediates, and advanced situations, so all of their bases are covered. They have seperate chapters for all muscles groups and great pictures to help visualize.
5-0 out of 5 stars You've got to read this book!
I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book
1-0 out of 5 stars Are you kidding?
I purchased this book based upon the 50+ positive reviews and must say, I am disppointed. I will get right down to it. When referencing select muscle groups like shoulders, this book lists EVERY exercise that effects the muscle group and not the exercises that have a direct impact. For example, for shoulder exercises it lists Bench Press. The primary muscle group for Bench Press is the CHEST with the Shoulders being indirectly affected. The Bench Press should not even be in this category. This happens over and over whne discussing various muscle groups and it can lead a beginning weight lifter to have a strong misunderstaing of strength training.

5-0 out of 5 stars Concise little must-have book
If you are lucky enough to have a copy of "How to Perfect Your Golf Swing" by Jimmy Ballard and this wonderful little Effortless Golf Swing book by Michael McTeigue, just combine the instruction of both books to have a golf swing that gets results on the course.Do yourself and your golf game a favor and buy this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Golf Instruction Book
This book is beautifully constructed, concise, gracefully written, and should be of immense help to most golfers.If you've read Ernest Jones, Percy Boomer, or Jimmy Ballard (for example) and enjoyed the insights but found it difficult to transfer the written word to your swing, try "The Keys ...": You will read a book that may finally lead you to improve your game.My swing improved markedly after I came to understand author McTeigue's "lighthouse turn" (Lesson Two: Momentum).

5-0 out of 5 stars Gem in The Rough
I became a golf nut four years ago and I have bought every golf "training aid" and how-to book I have come across.I have closets filled with training vests, videos, and swing trainers.Then I found this book, it shaved ten points off my score, and has been my only coach for six months now.It has given me a frame-work to let me know what I am doing wrong and how to fix it.Until I "go pro" this is all I'll need. It is really a remarkable book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a terrific insight into the Sierra and to the Park Service Rangers
I loved the book. I spent 20 years backpacking in this same area every summer in the same time span and loved the insights and details of the author regarding the environment. Wallace Stegner gave advice (detailed in the book) to Randy about how difficult it is to write in general about nature. Eric Blehm successfully overcomes this difficulty. I felt back in the mountains and reliving my experiences due to his details. Thank you Eric. The dedication and professionalism of the park rangers in the search is a tribute to these men and women. Thank you to them also.

5-0 out of 5 stars Who, or what killed Randy Morgenson
Eric Blehm's book "The Last Season is the biography of a Sierra Nevada National Park Ranger, Randy Morgenson. Despite decades of experience and an intimate knowledge of the terrain in which Morgenson patrols, he goes missing. Blehm captures the search and rescue operation that spans over years and in the process details Morgenson's life history.
5-0 out of 5 stars A stunning book abouthuman nature and the natural world
I will admit that I usually do not do things like review books. This book though has been one of the most enduring books that I have ever read. In a most tragic way it shows one mans bond with the natural world that few if any will ever match. Then it goes on to show the nature of those closest to him, and the profound impact he left on their lives both in life and in death. Reading this book has totally changed my outlook on the natural world. Thank You Eric Blehm for delivering the "Gospel" of Randy Morgenson to me. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good resource
If I had a partner or a teacher and enough time, I think I could get swimming down much better. I am trying to learn too fast and cannot get the breathing down for the freestyle; going from novice swimmer to doing a 400 meter pool swim in four weeks wasn't enough time for me. The book is great, and I also bought the DVDs, which I found helpful. This is something I have learned that I can't cram, but given enough time I think the book could give me what I need to swim well.

4-0 out of 5 stars The anatomy of a 2 second manuever....
Common sense stuff really. Break down a 2 second golf swing and see if you can make it better: although it may make perfect sense, translating the logic into a 2-second manuever probably takes years to make it effortless....

5-0 out of 5 stars Learn to be fish like.
I took a TI weekend work shop and bought the book. The book has all the priceless information I learnt during the work shop that will help you find your balance in the water and be more fish like when swimming. It's a handy book that you will refer back to over and over again to become a better swimmer. But of course nothing can replace the hours of practice of what you will learn from this book. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Bible for Freediving
As a freedive instructor, I feel that this book should be manditory for ALL freedivers who wish to learn from a master of the sport.
5-0 out of 5 stars In Europe freediving is an art form.
In Europe freediving is an art form. It is against the law to spearfish using tanks therefore spearfishermen have had to dive deep in the cold waters of the Atlantic and Mediterranean Sea hunting their quarry. More than that, freediving is the building block upon which good diving and underwater skills are based.
4-0 out of 5 stars Freediving
The intent of this book is to help you become a better freediver. It contains excellent teaching to help improve your freediving skills. There is practical advice to help you relax and learn to be in tune with your body. This book will help you to reach new levels of performance, dive deeper, stay longer, with more comfort and ease.

5-0 out of 5 stars A PRACTICAL AND QUICK STUDY GUIDE
I played a lot of basketball before taking on coaching my 6 year olds' team, but I had never coached.I digested the basics of this book in about an hour and it was a roadmap to get me started.I keep reading and using it as the season progresses.Very very good for first-time coaches for kids leagues of about 5-13 years old.

5-0 out of 5 stars Only One Book Needed
I struggled looking for a book written for the experienced youth coach who doesn't know much about basketball.I coach four youth sports, but I never played organized basketball.I was at a loss for drills, plays and defensive philosophies.This book gave me a huge head start and Coach Faucher's style is easy and right for the kids.I enjoy planning and running my basketball practices far more than any other sport now.Thanks Coach Faucher.Do you have one for football, . . baseball, . . soccer??????

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Rocket Science
I read this book because I thought that it would help me coach a group of 5th graders in the fundamentals of basketball.I did not learn anything new after reading this book, but I also have played basketball for many years.What was valuable to me was the drills made available.If you know nothing of basketball you'll appreciate this book. ...

Excellent points on how to adapt your thinking to play the most chlllenging game.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a mental game book for low handicappers!
I play golf 4 times a week and am a scratch golfer, and was struggling with my game for about 6 months. I am telling you this book turned things around for me immediately! I like Rotella's stuff, but Dr. Valiante really gets it! While there are many golf psychology books out there - and I've read them all - none of them address issues for the advanced golfer with a low handicap. You can tell Dr. Valiante works with Tour Pros because he talks about things that are unique to the advanced player and low handicapper. The other books talk in general about the mind, but miss the unique things low handicappers deal with. For example, Dr. Valiante's description of Mastery/Ego golfers fit me to a tee, and since I've switched mindsets to mastery golf I am much, much more comfortable. If you are an advanced player, and struggling, I (like Justin Leonard and David Toms - both who endorse this book) strongly recommend you buy this book! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Ben Hogan's premise in this 1957 classic is driven home in bold letters: "THE AVERAGE GOLFER IS ENTIRELY CAPABLE OF BUILDING A REPEATING SWING AND BREAKING 80." Religions are founded on less, and Hogan's detailed analyses and illustrated demonstrations of grip, stance, posture, and the two basic components of the swing make up a sacred book. Though its very simplicity seems dated, this is the tome of technique that should serve as the foundation of every golf library. ... Read more

For someone new to the game, this book is fantastic.Very few instructional volumes will successfully tell you how a particular technique -feels-.The examples start with the grip, in which the illustrations show you (and the text accurately describes) precisely what it is that you're searching for in terms of hand contact with the club.Pictures are helpful, but they can't convey the less tangible feelings of swinging or holding the club properly.It's not a substitute for lessons by any means, but it is a good (and short) way to get yourself planted on the right track towards hitting the ball well consistently.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Instructional Book
This book can be very valuable to many golfers.I played for a few years in my late teens and early 20's mostly on par 3 courses.I stopped for a few years, but found myself wanting to jump back into the game.Playing on the par 3s it seemed as if I could hit my irons, but not my woods.I struggled with shots all over the place.I couldn't find any consistency.I have only had the book a few days now but I am seeing a little improvement.The book is pretty technical but it is a great foundation for a high-handicapper.Helps you understand why your shots can be off, and how you can fix them. If you want to get a better understanding of your own golf swing... pick up this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Ben Hogan's Five Lessons
Some of the practices in the book are a little dated but I found the book to be very helpful.There are some techniques in the book that actually stabalized my swing.I would recommend the book for a beginning golfer as it's an easy approach to get started with sound basics. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars I completely agree
I completely agree, which is why tomorrow, I suggest every african-american basketball player leave their 40,000,000 contracts behind and exit the game....you know, to make a statement.And then you can ask Kobe the next time you see him drive up in his lambourghini mercielago how he feels about it.:)Is this guy serious?

4-0 out of 5 stars Reflective of Black America's Generational Divide
Overall, this is a very good book. As a bookworm since childhood, I've never been a big sports fan (Ali aisde as I'm a 70s child), but I am a historian by profession so I enjoyed that aspect of the book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Must read for blacks under the age of 40
This is one of the best books I've read.I am almost 50 years old and I learned a lot from this book.I have not heard of Flood and Foster.Foster should be more famous than Jackie Robinson.This book has references to the facts mentioned in this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Red Rubber Ball Book - Customer Service Review
The product was excellent; delivered quickly with excellent customer service.I was very impressed.Thank you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Bounce the Red Rubber Ball to Someone Else
After recently purchasing this book, I was so enthusiastic about its inspiration and clarity, that I bought another as a gift for a 16-year-old young man whom I thought could grasp the important messages that author Carroll is sending. However, I kept feeling that something was missing from this motivational story.What I realized is that Carroll is not only successful today due to allowing his inner strength and voice to help lead his way through life, but he also had strong contributions from others (his Grandmother, teachers, etc.) while creating his way.Unfortunately, with today's culture of "It's all about me," Carroll doesn't plant the idea anywhere in this book that once you realize your goals (or even during the process), part of the journey might include you becoming that teacher or "encourager" that he suggests you should seek out when finding your dream.I'm certain that the author does indeed give back, no doubt by setting an example for others, if not actively being involved in community service.But, adding a Chapter 8 with a message that finding and sustaining your life's work is just as much about changing yourself as it is at the same time how you can affect someone else's life by giving back.Whether it's donating your time, money or skills, contributing to your community completes a fulfilling and meaningful life.You can bounce that red rubber ball all by yourself, or you can share it with others.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Design and Advice
Great book, the design and layout made it a pleasure to look at and to read. The advice is much like you would get in many self help and career books but the presentation makes all the difference here. ... Read more

Editorial Review

People around the world have found inspiration in the story of Lance Armstrong--a world-class athlete nearly struck down by cancer, only to recover and win the Tour de France, the multiday bicycle race famous for its grueling intensity. Armstrong is a thoroughgoing Texan jock, and the changes brought to his life by his illness are startling and powerful, but he's just not interested in wearing a hero suit. While his vocabulary is a bit on the he-man side (highest compliment to his wife: "she's a stud"), his actions will melt the most hard-bitten souls: a cancer foundation and benefit bike ride, his astonishing commitment to training that got him past countless hurdles, loyalty to the people and corporations that never gave up on him. There's serious medical detail here, which may not be for the faint of heart; from chemo to surgical procedures to his wife's in vitro fertilization, you won't be spared a single x-ray, IV drip, or unfortunate side effect. Athletes and coaches everywhere will benefit from the same extraordinary detail provided about his training sessions--every aching tendon, every rainy afternoon, and every small triumph during his long recovery is here in living color.

2-0 out of 5 stars trash
we all know this story, but if you want to read a cocky, self absorbed version from lance's perspective pick this up. horribly written, some attempts are made at poeticism ("I keep riding, into the highest peering hills, up the pitch of a mountainside, where green leaves quiver in the cold sun") but overall i'd probably get more out of a 2 page summary of his life on wikipedia.

4-0 out of 5 stars Inspirational!
Lance provides a lot of insight into his life, who he is, and how he became the greatest cyclist in the world in this book!This book covers his life from birth to the 2nd Tour de France win.The dedication he has to his job (cycling) is so impressive.A truly inspirational story....

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic- One of the best books I have ever read
I must say that this is easily one of the best books I have ever read, and probably the most inspirational.It delves deep into the realms of the human spirit, against the worst of odds.Lance Armstrong isn't just the single greatest athlete of our generation, hes an American hero, and he beat cancer.Yes, he did not just survive, he defeated it, and proved it can be done.I have never had cancer, I have never fought against unbelieveble odds.This man has, and he tells his story in a remarkable, touching, and humane way.Fantastic Read. ...
