1 sound file : digital
Outrageous acts and everyday rebellions is Gloria Steinem's most diverse and timeless collection of essays. Since its publication in 1983 -- a phenomenal success that sold nearly half a million copies--male and female readers alike have acclaimed it as a witty, warn, and life-changing view of the world "as if women mattered ... Steinem's most personal writing is here, from the humorous expose "I was a Playboy bunny" to prescient essays on female genital mutilation and the difference between erotica and pornography. The satirical and hilarious "If men could menstruate" is alone worth the price of admission." ... the definitive philosophical and historical work about this movement that, belatedly, has transformed society."

There's a new set of 3Rs for our kids--respect, responsibility, and resilience--to better prepare them for life in the real world. Once developed, these skills let kids take charge, and let parents step back, to the benefit of all. Casting hover mothers and helicopter parents aside, Vicki Hoefle encourages a different, counter-intuitive, yet much more effective, approach to parenting: for parents to sit on their hands, stay on the sidelines--even if duct tape is required! Witty and straight-shooting, Duct Tape Parenting entertains as it informs parents how to do less in order to raise more confident, capable children. Includes a foreword by Alex Kajitani, the 2009 California Teacher of the Year and Finalist National Teacher of the Year.

A simple yet revolutionary approach to improving your body's oxygen use, increasing your health, weight loss, and sports performance--whether you're a recovering couch potato or an Ironman triathlon champion. With a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Dr. Joseph Mercola. Achieve more with less effort: The secret to weight loss, fitness, and wellness lies in the most basic and most overlooked function of your body--how you breathe. One of the biggest obstacles to better health and fitness is a rarely identified problem: chronic over-breathing. We often take many more breaths than we need--without realizing it--contributing to poor health and fitness, including a host of disorders, from anxiety and asthma to insomnia and heart problems. In The Oxygen Advantage, the man who has trained over 5,000 people--including Olympic and professional athletes--in reduced breathing exercises now shares his scientifically validated techniques to help you breathe more efficiently. Patrick McKeown teaches you the fundamental relationship between oxygen and the body, then gets you started with a Body Oxygen Level Test (BOLT) to determine how efficiently your body uses oxygen. He then shows you how to increase your BOLT score by using light breathing exercises and learning how to simulate high altitude training, a technique used by Navy SEALs and professional athletes to help increase endurance, weight loss, and vital red blood cells to dramatically improve cardio-fitness. Following his program, even the most out-of-shape person (including those with chronic respiratory conditions such as asthma) can climb stairs, run for a bus, or play soccer without gasping for air, and everyone can achieve: Easy weight loss and weight maintenance; Improved sleep and energy; Increased concentration; Reduced breathlessness during exercise; Heightened athletic performance; Improved cardiovascular health; Elimination of asthmatic symptoms, and more. With The Oxygen Advantage, you can look better, feel better, and do more--it's as easy as breathing.
