"At once profound, spiritual, and witty, Master of the Three Ways is a remarkable work about human nature, the essence of life, and how to live simply and with awareness. In three hundred and fifty-seven verses, the author, Hung Ying-ming a seventeenth-century Chinese sage explores good and evil, honesty and deception, wisdom and foolishness, and heaven and hell. He draws from the wisdom of the Three Creeds Taoism, Confucianism, and Zen Buddhism to impress upon us that by combining simple elegance with the ordinary, we can make our lives artistic and poetic. This sense, along with a particular understanding of Zen that makes art from the simple in everyday life, has permeated Chinese and Japanese culture to this day. The work is divided into two books. The first generally deals with the art of living in society and the second is concerned with man's solitude and contemplations of nature. These themes repeatedly spill over into each other, creating multiple levels of meaning."

The multiple stresses of contemporary life—whether from excessive sports play, overwork, or overuse of technology—are increasingly taking a toll on the body. Symptoms range from muscle soreness and pain to pinched nerves to potentially more permanent disabilities, including serious body injuries. One safe, quickly productive way to address the problem is through a simple therapy that can be done anywhere, anytime, and without special equipment: stretching. This new edition of Brad Walker’s best-selling book on the subject presents 135 unique stretching exercises designed to help repair the body and make it more flexible, fit, and relaxed. The book begins with clear, detailed descriptions of important principles of anatomy and physiology, the benefits of stretching, different forms of stretching, rules to remember, and how to stretch properly. It also focuses on the kinds of stretches that are most helpful in the alleviation or rehabilitation of specific sports injuries. Organized by body part, The Anatomy of Stretching presents stretching exercises in a uniform style accompanied by full-color anatomical illustrations. Equally useful for fitness fans, pro or amateur athletes, coaches and personal trainers, and healthcare practitioners, this new edition contains 20 new stretches; expanded physiology and anatomy information; and a revised numbering system that makes the stretches easier to reference. An expanded appendix includes a longer resources section and a helpful chart describing the top five stretches for each sport and sports injury.

Die 15-jährige DJ ist froh, dass es in ihrem Leben noch etwas anderes gibt als Kühe melken: Football zum Beispiel, oder ihre heimlichen Treffen mit Brian, dem hinreißenden Topspieler der Nachbarschule. Doch dass seine Blicke regelmäßig einen Tornado in DJ entfachen, lässt sich leider nicht so gut verbergen, weder vor ihren sensationslüsternen Mitschülern noch vor ihrer überbesorgten Mutter. Es verspricht ein stürmischer Herbst zu werden und DJ muss aufpassen, dass sie zwischen Farm, Football und Gefühlschaos nicht komplett den Boden unter den Füßen verliert ... (Klappentext).

Assessment of Nonorthopedic Sports Injuries: A Sideline Reference Manual is a concise and user-friendly guide that will benefit both the clinician and the student. This handy manual will help the clinician evaluate and treat nonorthopedic injuries on the sidelines at sporting events and can also be used as a study guide for students in the classroom. This well-organized reference guide contains algorithms, tables, and illustrations along with chapters that include an introduction and brief anatomy review, where applicable. The algorithms are designed to rule out potentially catastrophic injuries, such as cervical spine and head injuries. The algorithms will then guide the clinician through an evaluation specific to the injury, so that a differentiation can be made between the signs and symptoms indicative of serious conditions and those that are relatively benign. Assessment of Nonorthopedic Sports Injuries: A Sideline Reference Manual is a valuable book that will easily fit into a medical bag and have use as a crossover manual from the classroom to the playing field.
