With a bike, a turbo trainer, and the right advice, you can beat anyone. No one but Graeme Obree has the clarity of vision to get to the heart of the ´´problem´´ of how to improve as a racing cyclist. His innovative approach took him to the top of world cycling, twice breaking the world hour record - a story picked up in his Hollywood biopic The Flying Scotsman. It can draw the same outstanding athletic performance from you. The Obree Way sidesteps conventional wisdom and strips cycling back to its elements, always asking the question: ´´What actually improves my race time?´´ This is no routine training program. Written in a conversational style, the book explains Graeme Obree’s radical insights into technique, training, psychology, and diet, and the clear logic behind them. At last, the best kept secret in cycling, the Obree three-phase breathing technique, is revealed in detail, getting more oxygen to your blood with less effort. Graeme Obree’s training methods really work - the man is living proof. He believes that resting is key to training, that you can pedal, stretch, and breathe more effectively and that, if you really want it, you can find the will and intensity to improve.

The slyly funny, sweetly moving memoir of an unconventional dad’s relationship with his equally offbeat son - complete with fast cars, tall tales, homemade explosives, and a whole lot of fun and trouble Misfit, truant, delinquent. John Robison was never a model child, and he wasn’t a model dad either. Diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome at the age of 40, he approached fatherhood as a series of logic puzzles and practical jokes. When his son, Cubby, asked, ´´Where did I come from?” John said he’d bought him at the Kid Store and that the salesman had cheated him by promising Cubby would ´´do all chores”. He read electrical engineering manuals to Cubby at bedtime. He told Cubby that wizards turned children into stone when they misbehaved. Still, John got the basics right. He made sure Cubby never drank diesel fuel at the automobile repair shop he owns. And he gave him a life of adventure: By the time Cubby was 10, he’d steered a Coast Guard cutter, driven a freight locomotive, and run an antique Rolls Royce into a fence. The one thing John couldn’t figure out was what to do when school authorities decided that Cubby was dumb and stubborn - the very same thing he had been told as a child. Did Cubby have Asperger’s too? The answer was unclear. One thing was clear, though: By the time he turned 17, Cubby had become a brilliant chemist - smart enough to make military-grade explosives and bring state and federal agents calling. Afterward, with Cubby facing up to 60 years in prison, both father and son were forced to take stock of their lives, finally coming to terms with being ´´on the spectrum” as both a challenge and a unique gift. By turns tender, suspenseful, and hilarious, this is more than just the story of raising Cubby. It’s the story of a father and son who grow up together. 1. Language: English.

Practically Radical is a manifesto for change and a manual for making it happen in an era when change is the name of the game. Businesspeople everywhere are engaging in a dramatic ´´rethink´´ of how they lead, work, and get results. In an age of fierce competition and stubborn recession, the status quo just doesn´t cut it. But how do you break new ground when there is so much pressure to do things the same way as everyone else? Using his years of experience and thought leadership in the business world, the cofounder and founding editor of one of the world´s most admired business magazines, Fast Company, offers radical ideas and practical advice to help you fix what´s wrong with your organization, launch new initiatives with the best chance to succeed, and rethink the logic of leadership itself. Practically Radical goes deep inside twenty-five for-profit companies and nonprofit organizations to find out how they´ve made remarkable strides in tough circumstances. They include IBM, Zappos, Swatch, the Girl Scouts, Interpol, big-city hospitals, fast-growing banks, and high-flying airlines. These organizations have answered the make-or-break questions facing leaders in every field: Do you see opportunities the competition doesn´t see? The most successful organizations embrace one-of-a-kind ideas in a world filled with me-too thinking. Do you have new ideas about where to look for new ideas? Practices that are routine in one field can be revolutionary when they migrate to another field. Are you the most of anything? Companies used to be comfortable in the middle of the road. Today, the middle of the road is the road to ruin. Are you getting the best contributions from the most people? It may be lonely at the top, but change is not a game best played by loners. 1.
