A nuanced and well-written story, told from the perspectives of four individual middle schoolers and their teacher, who discover the transformative power of love and friendship as they compete in an academic bowl. This, combined with the varying first person perspectives and nonlinear timeline make for a challenging and meaningful reading experience at any age. On paper, Peak should have been my favorite of the three.
While it might not have lived up to my six-year-old memory of a similar book, Peak still has a lot to offer. I was very interested in the application of the science of expertise to the field of medicine, specifically surgery. Since pruning is such a hands-on activity, I had some doubts about how much help a mere book could offer.
For this reason, I had already taken a series of virtual Master Pruning classes through PlantAmnesty. To be fair, their fruit tree class was more practical than the others, but I was left a little depressed and stressed out by the whole experience.
Not only is Grow a Little Fruit Tree informative and encouraging, its design and illustrations are exceptionally beautiful. It took a little research, but I was happy to find that their online portfolios see links contain samples from the book that are well worth checking out. This bible for uphill endurance athletes accomplishes what most other sports and fitness books promise and fail to do: give readers a solid understanding of the physiological effects that specific training has on their bodies and the ability to use that knowledge flexibly in the pursuit of their own athletic goals.
The fact that a book could never fully substitute for a good coach does not seem to discourage the authors from trying, and their approach to the topic is extremely well-conceived. They avoid the common shortcomings of only providing information that is too general here are some good exercises! Additionally, the photographs in this book are abundant and exceptional.
If there were such a thing as an armchair athlete, this book would be very satisfying for them. Think about it. Why I read it: The Princess has languished in a box of music books for as long as I can remember, but during a recent reorganization, I decided it was about time she was read and put on the shelf with the others.
This harrowing story gave me a renewed sense of respect and empathy for all U. Because of this, it felt like a rare privilege to read such a raw account of danger, bravery and sacrifice.
Almost all of the seven deadly sins make an appearance as Schindler schmoozes, name-drops, threatens, cajoles, bribes, wines and dines his way through the war. This ubiquitous book is well-deserving of its reputation as the bible of pregnancy. It contains a ton of helpful information but what makes it truly outstanding, in my opinion, is the comforting and positive tone with which the info is conveyed.
Reading it feels more like having a conversation with your mom than referencing a textbook or encyclopedia. I do wish that the book ended on a happier note instead of a chapter on complications and pregnancy loss, though.
I was lucky that a friend passed along this copy to me. It is so refreshing to read a book written specifically for female athletes that pragmatically and constructively addresses the comparative strengths and weaknesses of our sex. I am often the only woman on our martial arts fight team and it is tempting to think of myself simply as a smaller, weaker man, cursed with monthly inconsistency in performance.
Sims makes it clear that things are not that simple and offers helpful ideas for navigating the ups and downs of the menstrual cycle, menopause, and pregnancy, in addition to the basics of general strength and conditioning, nutrition, hydration and recovery for women.
I found the section on different types of birth control and their effects on athletic performance to be particularly interesting. I was also fascinated to find out that I should be eating protein as a recovery snack instead of carbs. While I definitely plan to refer to this book in future, I do wish it contained specific footnotes for many of its claims instead of general endnotes.
This is a definite obstacle to the practical application of her ideas, especially for a perfectionist like myself. Of course, no book can be a substitute for one-on-one coaching, so perhaps I am asking too much.
Expectant Motherhood by Nicholson J. Eastman, M. In the last eight months, since I first found out that I was expecting a baby of my own, I have learned a lot about pregnancy and childbirth from a variety of sources. This vintage book from is the oldest of all, but I was delighted to discover that a surprisingly large amount of the information and advice it gives still survives, little changed, in our modern age.
To me, this is encouraging proof that the process of growing and delivering a baby to the world is natural and something most women are innately empowered to accomplish. Of course, much has changed in the field of medicine in the plus years since the third edition of this book was published, leading to some fascinating insights into the past. I learned that the easiest and cheapest method was simply to wait until an expected menstrual cycle was at least ten days late, at which point chances were good that you were pregnant.
The downside of this approach is obviously that you do not receive positive proof of pregnancy, just an ever-increasing likelihood of it. Needless to say, peeing on a stick seems much less gross and inconvenient after learning about these alternate methods of the past!

Robert E. He returned to Australia and carried out research on chilling injury of tropical plants before his appointment to the University of Hawaii to teach and do research on postharvest physiology and handling. He teaches plant physiology and provides guest lectures on postharvest physiology and handling in applied courses. His research focuses on the adaptation and application of technology to the improvement of postharvest handling in a integrated and systematic way. This research has lead to more than hundred peer-reviewed publication, over eighty extension type articles and is co author on three books and co-edited five including The Encyclopedia of Fruits and Nuts published by CABI with Dr.

Fruit tree pruning is the cutting and removing of selected parts of a fruit tree. It spans a number of horticultural techniques. Pruning often means cutting branches back, sometimes removing smaller limbs entirely. It may also mean removal of young shoots , buds, and leaves.
