PER RAGGIUNGERE TRAGUARDI IN OGNI CAMPO, DALL'UFFICIO AL DESERTO. Chi, un bel giorno, decide di alzarsi dalla sedia e di mettersi a correre non inizia solo a praticare uno sport entusiasmante, ma cambia anche la sua vita. Questo è il messaggio che Daniele Barbone, imprenditore e runner, trasmette nel suo libro. Per correre non bisogna acquistare un’attrezzatura costosa, bisogna solo abbandonare la pigrizia e muovere il primo passo. Dall’isolato di casa e dai parchi cittadini alle mezze maratone e alle maratone, Daniele racconta come è approdato alle Five Major Marathons e alla 100km del Sahara, la corsa nel deserto che si avvicina al mondo estremo dell’Ultra-Trail. Ci vogliono volontà, motivazione, resilienza, capacità di porsi obiettivi realistici ma sempre più ambiziosi, non per ottenere riconoscimenti esterni ma per provare soddisfazione in se stessi. Oggi Daniele Barbone non è solo un runner, è anche un «pace-maker», un motivatore che affianca, sprona e consiglia chi sta correndo. E in «Runner si diventa» Daniele condivide con il lettore la sua «cassetta degli attrezzi», utile a chiunque voglia avvicinarsi al running, a chi già lo pratica e a chi lo vede come metafora che insegna a realizzare i propri traguardi in ogni campo, dallo sport allo studio al lavoro: a individuarli, a sviluppare la resilienza necessaria, a soffrire un po’, a trovare buoni compagni di viaggio e, infine, a raggiungerli.

One early September night, at the moment before the world changes, a young woman brings her daughter to work. April's usual babysitter, Jean, has had a panic attack that's landed her in hospital. April doesn't really know anyone else, so decides it's best to have her three-year-old daughter close by, watching children's videos in the office, while she works. But April is a stripper at the Puma Club for Men. And tonight she has an unusual client, a foreigner both remote and too personal, and free with his cash. His name is Bassam. Meanwhile, another man, AJ, has been thrown out of the club for holding hands with his favourite stripper, and he's drunk and angry and lonely. From these explosive elements comes a relentless, raw, searing, passionate page-turning narrative, a big-hearted and painful novel about sex and parenthood, honour and masculinity. Set in the seamy underside of American life at the moment before the world changed, it juxtaposes lust for domination with hunger for connection, sexual violence with family love. It seizes the reader by the throat with the same psychological tension, depth and realism that characterised Andre Dubus's bestselling House of Sand and Fog - and with an even greater sense of the dark and anguished places in the human heart.

DeLillo's Running Dog, originally published in 1978, follows Moll Robbins, a New York city journalist trailing the activities of an influential senator. In the process she is dragged into the black market world of erotica and shady, infatuated men, where a cat-and-mouse chase for an erotic film rumored to "star" Adolph Hitler leads to trickery, maneuvering, and bloodshed. With streamlined prose and a thriller's narrative pace, Running Dog is a bright star in the modern master's early career.

From a two-time Olympic coach and creator of the Pose Method who has trained the running elite, an essential guide for all runners seeking to go faster and farther without injury Christopher McDougall’s Born to Run—and the wildly popular natural running trend it sparked—changed the way we think about running, but it has also prompted many questions: Have we been running the wrong way? And, have we been running in the wrong kind of shoe? What is the safest type of foot strike? How many types are there? And what is a foot strike anyway? No existing guide has clearly addressed these concerns—until now. The Running Revolution provides both beginning and experienced runners with everything they need to know in order to safely and efficiently transition to and master a safer and more biomechanically efficient way of running that is guaranteed to improve performance and minimize wear and tear on the body. More than a one-size-fits-all guide, The Running Revolution provides readers with clear instructions, complete with helpful illustrations, that they can easily integrate into their unique running histories in order to run safely, intelligently, and efficiently for many years to come.
