Martin Fourcade - Un dernier tour de piste by Summary

LE CARNET DE BORD D’UN IMMENSE CHAMPION près son triomphe aux Jeux olympiques de 2018 (trois médailles d’or), Martin Fourcade peine à retrouver ses sensations. La saison post-olympique s’apparente à un calvaire, au point qu’il se demande s’il n’a pas perdu la flamme et les qualités mentales et physiques qui ont fait de lui le plus grand biathlète de l’histoire. Alors, à l’aube de ce qui deviendra sa dernière saison, il entame une opération de reconquête sans certitude, mais avec une immense détermination. Un dernier tour de piste est le carnet de bord touchant, sincère et circonstancié de cette renaissance : du premier jour de compétition de présaison jusqu’au franchissement de l’ultime ligne d’arrivée, épilogue d’une saison haletante, point final d’une carrière en or. On découvre l’homme, le passeur, le père derrière le champion. Et on comprend encore mieux comment et pourquoi il est devenu une légende du sport.

Martin Fourcade by Martin Fourcade Summary

À 28 ans, le biathlète français est d’ores et déjà une légende de son sport mais aussi un des plus grands champions de l’histoire du sport français et le plus médaillé au sport d’hiver. Aussi précis au tir que rapide et endurant sur ses skis, le champion né dans les Pyrénées orientales s’est forgé au fil des ans un palmarès unique avec 2 médailles d’or et deux médailles d’argent aux JO d’hiver, 11 championnats du monde et 63 victoires en Coupe du monde. Et il va s’attaquer aux JO de Pyeongchang en Corée du Sud avec un appétit de géant. Dans ce livre qu’il a lui-même écrit, il revient sur les secrets de sa méthode, son rapport à la nature et n’élude pas les sujets qui fâchent comme les soupçons de dopage de ses adversaires russes.

Martin Fourcade. Moje poslední sezóna by Martin Fourcade Summary

Martin Fourcade je francouzskou legendou, která sedm let vládla biatlonovému světu. Sedm let vyhrával, v průměru každý druhý závod stál na nejvyšším stupni. Zvykl si. V sezoně 2018–2019 ale zažil něco, na co nebyl připravený. Přestalo se mu dařit. Nechápal, co se děje, tělo zkrátka nereagovalo tak, jak byl do té doby zvyklý. A nedivil se jen on, v šoku byl celý biatlonový svět. Zažil obrovský propad. Sáhl si hodně hluboko. Na konci neúspěšné sezony to ale nechtěl vzdát a začal se připravovat na sezonu další, která měla být, aniž to tehdy sám tušil, jeho poslední. Tato nová kniha Martina Fourcada je intimním deníkem, který si psal během uplynulé sezony. Procházíme s ním jednotlivými zastávkami Světového poháru a nahlédnout můžeme i do jeho soukromí. Zažíváme s ním hlubokou radost a pokoru, když se mu daří zase vyhrávat, uvědomuje si, jak bral svá vítězství samozřejmě. Vrací se na vrchol a mnohem víc si váží všeho, co dosáhl. I když ho na konci dělí od posledního velkého křišťálového globu jen dva body, poslední závod své kariéry vyhrává. Odchází jako král. Král je mrtev, ať žije král. Martin Fourcade s námi na konci své hvězdné kariéry sdílí deník, který si psal během poslední sezony. Je doplněný barevnými ilustracemi 14leté ruské fanynky Oksany Pinčukové.

Beyond Possible by Nimsdai Purja Summary

**THE SUNDAY TIMES TOP 10 BESTSELLER** 'An inspirational study in leadership and a powerful testament to the human spirit at its very best.' - Mail on Sunday 'The energy of the book gives it pace and you whip through, rather as Purja nips up verticals... Whether or not you are a lover of the mountains, you will marvel at his tenacity, his fearlessness. No one can fail to be inspired by what he achieved.' - The Times 'Not only does Nims have exceptional physical stamina, he's also a leader with great skills in financial management and logistics.' - Reinhold Messner, the first person to climb all fourteen highest mountains in the world 'The magnitude of his achievement is astonishing.' Soldier Magazine 'A Living Legend.' Trail Magazine *** Welcome to The Death Zone. Fourteen mountains on Earth tower over 8,000 metres above sea level, an altitude where the brain and body withers and dies. Until recently, the world record for climbing them all stood at nearly eight years. So I announced I was summiting them in under seven months. People laughed. They told me I was crazy, even though I'd sharpened my climbing skills on the brutal Himalayan peaks of Everest and Dhaulagiri. But I possessed more than enough belief, strength and resilience to nail the job, having taken down enemy gunmen and terrorist bomb makers while serving with the Gurkhas and the UK Special Forces. Throughout 2019, I came alive in the death zone. Soon after, I was showing the world a new truth: that with bravery and enough heart and drive, the impossible was possible...

A Country Excursion by Guy de Maupassant Summary

This early work by Guy de Maupassant was originally published in the 1880's. Guy de Maupassant was born in 1850 at the Château de Miromesnil, near Dieppe, France. He came from a prosperous family, but when Maupassant was eleven, his mother risked social disgrace by trying to secure a legal separation from her husband. After the split, Maupassant lived with his mother till he was thirteen, and inherited her love of classical literature. In 1880, Maupassant published his first - and, according to many, his best - short story, entitled 'Boule de Suif' ('Ball of Fat'). It was an instant success. He went on to be extremely prolific during the 1880s, working methodically to produce up to four volumes of short fiction every year. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions.

Jonny: My Autobiography by Jonny Wilkinson Summary

Jonny Wilkinson's career has crossed three decades and four World Cups. He has accumulated phenomenal achievements, world points records, an impressive list of broken body parts, and a drop goal that will be remembered for ever. But the peculiar calmness with which he played the game masked a very different reality. In JONNY, he reveals the extraordinary psychology that he had to tame in order to be able to dominate his sport. For most of his life, he was driven by a quest for perfection and an obsession to be the best player in the world; here he shows how these two facets of his competitive mind took such a hold of him that they sent him to the top of the world, then swept him up and dragged him down into a spiral of despair. Jonny's career has spanned the far reaches: amazing highs and iconic moments, then a fight against injury that culminated in a battle with depression. Here he tells of the physical toll he knew his body was taking from rugby, even from his youth; he tells of how he never wanted to be a kicking fly-half but learned to adapt his natural game to play the style that Clive Woodward believed necessary to win a World Cup, and how he nearly walked out on Martin Johnson's England team 13 years later.

Little Fox by Edward van de Vendel Summary

A Kirkus Best Picture Book of 2020 "A beautiful, fully realized dreamscape." —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Little Fox frolics with butterflies, scavenges for food, and searches for new friends—despite his father's warning that danger lurks all around. Then one day he takes a tumble, bumps his head, and starts dreaming of things that reflect both the beauty he's seen and the scary things he's heard. Marije Tolman's ingenious illustrations use a fresh technique that feels like a movie and a dream, starring the cheerful, bright orange Little Fox on grainy mixed media landscapes of blue and green. And when Little Fox wakes up, he's perhaps a little wiser, but still every bit as curious and full of life.

Inside the Mind of Vladimir Putin by Michel Eltchaninoff Summary

The Russian president's landmark speeches, interviews and policies borrow heavily from great Russian thinkers past and present, from Peter the Great to Dostoevsky and Solzhenitsyn. They offer powerful visions of strong leaders and the Russian nation: they value conservatism and the Slavic spirit. They root morality in Orthodoxy, and Russian identity in the historic struggle with the West. Today, Putin manages and manipulates those same ideas in his 'defense' of 130 million ethnic Russians against the world. With the annexation of Crimea, the war in Syria and shock election results across the West, the challenge of decrypting his worldview has become more pressing than ever. From a Eurasian Union to a new Russian Empire, this is a revealing tour of Kremlin doctrine and strategy, viewed through its philosophical roots.

The Disney Song Encyclopedia by Thomas S. Hischak,Mark A. Robinson Summary

Songs written for Disney productions over the decades have become a potent part of American popular culture. Since most Americans first discovered these songs in their youth, they hold a special place in one's consciousness. The Disney Song Encyclopedia describes and discusses hundreds of famous and not-so-famous songs from Disney films, television, Broadway, and theme parks from the 1930s to the present day. Over 900 songs are given individual entries and presented in alphabetical order. The songwriters and original singers are identified, as well as the source of the song and other venues in which it might have been used over the years. Notable recordings of the song are also listed. But most important, the song is described and what makes it memorable is discussed. This is not a reference list but a true encyclopedia of Disney songs. The book also contains a preface describing the criteria for selecting the songs, a glossary of song terms, a list of all the Disney songs and their sources, a songwriter's directory in which every song by each composer/lyricist is listed, a bibliography, a guide to recordings and DVDs of Disney productions, and an index of people and titles.

Letter to My Daughter by Maya Angelou Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Maya Angelou shares her path to living well and with meaning in this absorbing book of personal essays. Dedicated to the daughter she never had but sees all around her, Letter to My Daughter transcends genres and categories: guidebook, memoir, poetry, and pure delight. Here in short spellbinding essays are glimpses of the tumultuous life that led Angelou to an exalted place in American letters and taught her lessons in compassion and fortitude: how she was brought up by her indomitable grandmother in segregated Arkansas, taken in at thirteen by her more worldly and less religious mother, and grew to be an awkward, six-foot-tall teenager whose first experience of loveless sex paradoxically left her with her greatest gift, a son. Whether she is recalling such lost friends as Coretta Scott King and Ossie Davis, extolling honesty, decrying vulgarity, explaining why becoming a Christian is a “lifelong endeavor,” or simply singing the praises of a meal of red rice–Maya Angelou writes from the heart to millions of women she considers her extended family. Like the rest of her remarkable work, Letter to My Daughter entertains and teaches; it is a book to cherish, savor, re-read, and share. “I gave birth to one child, a son, but I have thousands of daughters. You are Black and White, Jewish and Muslim, Asian, Spanish speaking, Native Americans and Aleut. You are fat and thin and pretty and plain, gay and straight, educated and unlettered, and I am speaking to you all. Here is my offering to you.”—from Letter to My Daughter

Capabilities, Allocation and Earnings by Joop Hartog Summary

1. 1 INTRODUCTION The final chapter of my Personal Income Distribution, a Hulticapability Theory (Hartog, 1981a) carried as its motto: 'Oh richness of the unfinished'. It concluded a book in which labor services were decomposed into services arising from different capabilities. Individuals were supposed to command stocks of capabilities and to decide on the utilization rates of these capabilities, by balanc ing efforts and rewards. The optimal capability bundle they so defined was to be realized by picking the job that just required this bundle. To derive analytical implications on the structure of the labor market and on the distribution of labor earnings, the key assumption was made that arbitrage in capability supply was possible, i. e. , that effectively capabilities could be sold separ ately and carried a uniform unit price throughout the labor market. While many interesting analytical and empirical results followed, there was also an indication from empirical testing that an earnings function linear in capabilities could be outperformed by a non-linear func- 2 CAPABILITIES, ALLOCATION AND EARNINGS tion, and that the arbitrage assumption might be un tenable. This book attempts to harvest a little from the richness of the unfinished that was left. It returns to some of the old topics and adds some new ones, in a more general model that no longer imposes the assumption that capabilities can be treated as if they can be unbundled. It also draws on new datasets to explore the issues empirically.
