worldtravel04, July 11, 2007

What really happened during the 2006 Tour de France?!?!

Follow Landis from his Mennonite upbringing, through riding for Lance Armstrong, fighting for the 2006 Yellow Jersey, and his current fight to clear his name from doping allegations.

The book concludes with look into the science (or lack thereof in many cases) as well as the numerous laboratory errors and politics surrounding the Landis case.

Join Michael, Addy and Karl as they make friends with their new neighbor, Stillwater, the giant panda. Stillwater is a wise old bear who teaches his young friends with short meditations or ideas to ponder.

A wonderful collection of short stories with beautiful watercolor or pen and ink illustrations. Children will enjoy the interesting pictures and parents will like the quiet wisdom this intelligent bear passes on.

Great story and fantastic artwork!!! Banks has made this such a fun book that the kids (or the kid in you) won't even know they're learning about sharing and the power of words.

Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner by Dean Karnazes
Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner

worldtravel04, July 2, 2007

Does running a 300 mile relay race by yourself sound like fun? Or, how about having a large pizza, cherry cheesecake and thermos of coffee delivered to you at midnight while running down the shoulder of a highway? If so, then this is the book for you.

One part inspiring, one part incredible Karnazes has taken ultra distance running to a level unreachable by any but the hardiest (or craziest?) and tells his story in a most entertaining way.

Heat: An Amateur's Adventures as Kitchen Slave, Line Cook, Pasta-Maker, and Apprentice to a Dante-Quoting Butcher in Tuscany by Bill Buford
Heat: An Amateur's Adventures as Kitchen Slave, Line Cook, Pasta-Maker, and Apprentice to a Dante-Quoting Butcher in Tuscany

worldtravel04, June 27, 2007

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work in Babbo, ?Molto? Mario Batali?s three star restaurant? Buford enters the frantic, crude, macho world of a NY chef as Batali?s non-paid kitchen slave?learning first hand how large the gulf between an enthusiastic amateur and professional is. Part-culinary history, part-behind-the-scenes look at Mario?s Babbo, part-travelogue and entirely entertaining.
