With the exciting sport of fencing steadily becoming more mainstream in the UK, US and around the world, parents are spending thousands each year to help and encourage their children to train and excel in this unique Olympic sport. Fencing can be a mysterious world to the uninitiated, and parents and young fencers will have many questions about the sport, the fencer’s potential and the dos and don’ts. From Last to First aims to answer all these questions and many more. Written by a team comprising Jon Salfield, a leading Youth Development and High Performance coach (London Olympics 2012), and Daniela I. Norris, an experienced author and fencing-parent of an international youth fencer, with input from Strength and Conditioning and Psychology experts, and a foreword from a multiple champion and highly-regarded author, it is meant for anyone who wants to know how to support their young fencer from the start of their fencing adventure, all the way through to success at international competitions.

Charlie Spedding describes himself as ‘not particularly talented’ – at least, compared to the group of people he had chosen to find himself among. These were the athletes in the Olympic marathon. So how did he end up with a bronze medal? How did he win the London Marathon? And why does he still hold the English record for the distance? In this remarkable autobiography he explains how – how someone who was almost bottom of the class when he first went to school, and even worse at sport, eventually turned himself into a genuinely world-class athlete, competing in top marathons all over the world, and genuinely going from last to first. As well as the enthralling life story of one of our finest distance runners, this book is a wonderfully clear and inspiring piece of life coaching for anyone who wants to make the most of their talents. But more than this, as Spedding says at the start, ‘I believe that on occasions you can create the circumstances in which you can perform at a higher level than your talent says you can’. Spedding’s own story, and his chronicle of the big races he excelled in, proves it’s true. For anyone aspiring to run a marathon, or indeed anyone who wants to set themselves a goal they think beyond their reach – and achieve it – this is an essential book.

Travelling on this road we call life, many are headed for destruction. The devil would delight in us dangling at the end of our ropes to be last in the eyes of men. But God takes Tyrone on a journey that propels him from ... "last to first"... Witness for yourselves this incredible and divine transformation. And know that with God all things are possible. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me..." Phillippians 4:13

Public education adheres to a rote-based, assembly-line model that worked well back in the heyday of American manufacturing. Those days are gone. Our school system prepares students for a workplace that no longer exists. Educational consultant David W. Hale, PE, argues that a radical transformation of public education would arm students with the skills and mind-sets they need to succeed in the intensely competitive modern global workforce. His no-nonsense system focuses on five Rs: reality check, reeducate, refinance, refocus, and revolutionize. Hale's approach requires us to accept the reality that US education now faces global competition. From there, we need reeducated teachers to provide solutions to poverty, drugs, and other external problems that hinder learning. Refinancing public education is vital if we are to develop a cost-effective, student-focused education system. We need to refocus how we define educational success to prepare high school graduates for the modern workforce. And, finally, we must revolutionize teaching and learning techniques to maximize student success. Bold, straightforward, and timely, Rebuilding Our Public Educational System: Using the Five R Approach offers a transformative model for an educational system currently incapable of handling global competition.

What connects the famous magician Mandrake to a lifesaving drug such as atropine? What link is there between the beautiful cherry blossom trees of Washington and the discovery of adrenaline? Is it true that the ambulance and triage systems were borne after the terrible experiences of t soldiers on the Napoleonic War battlefield? What is the "sweet whiskey" that allowed for major surgical operations in the past? The answers to these questions and other anecdotes and curiosities, are presented in From Last Hope to First Aid: Stories from the History of Emergency Medicine. In search of the origin of practices, drugs, and devices present today on our ambulances and in our hospitals and emergency rooms, we get a passionate glimpse into the history of emergency, meeting the founding fathers of medicine. We get to know more deeply the brilliant doctors and passionate pioneers who with their greatest inventions have revolutionized the way we live and survive. In 37 short and fresh chapters, independent of each other, we take an extraordinary journey into the history of medicine, science and humanism. Every big or small step has been animated with love, passion, and dreams toward one single goal: saving the life of another person.
