NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Lessons in strength, fitness, food, and attitude from the popular world champion skier and beauty icon-Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn. Olympic Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn wants women to stop thinking about ´´losing weight fast,´´ and instead focus on loving their bodies for what they are and what they can do. Lindsey is a small-town Minnesota girl at heart turned world-champion skier, but that didn´t come without hard work. In Strong Is the New Beautiful, Lindsey lays out the never-before-seen training routines and her overall philosophy that have helped her become the best female skier in the world-tailored for women of all shapes and sizes. Lindsey backs up her fitness program with advice on what to eat and how to work out, and kicks readers into high-gear, helping bolster their self-confidence and build a better body image, with the tips and tricks she´s learned as a pro. This is Lindsey´s regimen, and she encourages people to take from it what will work for them. She bounced back from injury not by doing every single thing a trainer said, but instead, by thinking about the fitness plan that would work for her, and eating the right foods that would make her feel and get healthy. In Strong Is the New Beautiful, she interweaves her training and diet regimen with compelling stories of her life growing up in the heartland, her love of skiing, the challenges she´s faced-including injuries, illness, and depression-and her secrets to wellness, fitness, and recovery. Supported by cutting-edge science and the latest studies on health and exercise, filled with routines even those hitting the bunny hill of working out can master, and illustrated with dozens of workout shots and photos from Lindsey´s own collection, Strong Is the New Beautiful will inspire and motivate you-whether you´re an aspiring athlete, want to get back into shape, or are eager to up your game-to make your body stronger than ever before, inside and out.

Tagsüber bringt Viktoria Kindern das Tanzen bei, nachts versucht sie, das Loch in ihrem Bankkonto zu stopfen, indem sie putzen geht. Auf den großen Durchbruch als Tänzerin hofft sie bisher vergeblich. Männer haben in ihrem Leben keinen Platz. Dafür hat sie keine Zeit, keinen Nerv und überhaupt. Aber träumen ist erlaubt. Von Desmond Faraday dem Dritten zum Beispiel, dem Bezirksstaatsanwalt von New York. Dem Mann mit sauberem Image und dunklem Blick, den sie gelegentlich nachts im Büro trifft, wenn sie dort putzt und er noch immer hinter seinem Schreibtisch sitzt. Doch als die Wege von Desmond und Viktoria sich auf unerwartete Weise erneut kreuzen, beginnt ein Tanz um Macht, Einfluss, Schmerz und Lust, auf den kein Training dieser Welt sie hätte vorbereiten können. Denn Desmond hat ein Geheimnis, das nicht nur seine weiße Weste beflecken, sondern auch Viktorias Zukunft für immer verändern könnte - das sie aber unwiderstehlich anzieht. Mit diesem romantischen BDSM Roman entführt Sie Felicity la Forgia in eine Welt aus Lust, Schmerz, Vertrauen und Liebe.
SILAS My home is my sanctuary. Or is it my prison? Some days it´s hard to tell. I´ve confined myself behind these walls for protection. I have my reasons, but that doesn´t change the profound loneliness I´ve discovered in the process. Then one day I find myself drifting toward the window to see him. Corey Marshall, my new neighbor. Quiet, reserved, and cute as can be. He infects my thoughts, becomes the image I fantasize about. I want to taste his lips, smell his scent...feel what it´s like to be inside him. And soon, watching becomes exchanging gifts and messages, which becomes so much more. It´s wrong to want this as badly as I do, but I can´t help myself. I crave him so desperately. It´s hard to tell if what we´re doing is going to make me lose my mind or change my entire world, but it´s too late to turn back now... COREY I´ve never been quite right. Too high or too low. Pain is my constant companion?at the hands of my abusive ex, and often from myself. The sweet relief is only temporary, but in those moments, it´s like I can finally breathe. Then I meet him. Silas Rizner calms the chaotic storms inside me. He makes me feel loved, treasured, even when I don´t deserve it. I cherish the moments we share-cooking, cuddling, and when Silas reads to me until I fall asleep. When he´s inside me, it´s the only time in my life I´ve ever felt complete. Silas becomes the glue that holds me together, that bandages my scars. Inside the walls of his home, we´re almost safe, but our demons are always there, waiting to break free. We´re a mess. We´re broken, chaotic, beautiful; we´re in love. But not even love can slay our monsters. No, only we can do that. Unless our monsters destroy us first. TRIGGERS: Self-harm, depression, anxiety, mentions of past domestic violence. *While the sexual situations depicted in Beautiful Chaos are imperative to the characters´ development throughout the course of the novel, readers are advised to peruse the ´´Dear Reader´´ letter at the beginning of the book to help them make an informed decision about whether this particular story will be to their tastes. This letter can be viewed in the downloadable sample or by using the ´´Look Inside´´ feature found on the title´s product page.
National Geographic Simply Beautiful Photographs takes readers on a spectacular visual journey through some of the most stunning photographs to be found in National Geographic´s famed Image Collection. Award-winning photographer Annie Griffiths culled the images to reflect the many variations on the universal theme of beauty. Chapters are organized around the aesthetic concepts that create beauty in a photograph: Light, Composition, Moment (Gesture and Emotion), Motion, Palette, and Wonder. Beyond the introduction and brief essays about each featured concept, the text is light. The photographs speak for themselves, enhanced by lyrical quotes from scholars and poets. In the chapter on Light, for example, we read these words of whimsical wisdom from songwriter Leonard Cohen: ´´Ring the bells that still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There is a crack in everything. That´s how the lights get in.´´ And then the images flow, of light entering scenes through windows, clouds, and spotlights, from above, alongside, and behind, casting radiance upon young ballerinas and weathered men, into groves of autumn trees and island-dotted seas, revealing everything it touches to be beautiful beyond expectation. To illuminate the theme of Wonder, Griffiths chose a wish from Andre Bazin: ´´If I had influence with the good fairy...I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life.´´ This thought is juxtaposed with an exquisite vision in white, a frame filled with the snowy-pure dots and rays of a bird´s fan tail. And on it goes, picture after tantalizing picture, alive with wondrous beauty. When she created National Geographic Simply Beautiful Photographs, Annie Griffiths set two goals: to maximize visual delight, and to create a book unique in the world of publishing-one in which many of the photographs could be purchased as prints. She has succeeded on both counts. Many of these stunning images are available for order, and there can be no doubt as to the visual delight. You must open this book for yourself, and take in its radiant beauty.
