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.

A bestseller across Europe this international phenomenon is an ambitious, dynamic and intelligent historical novel written by four young Italian men. Set in the time of tremendous religious and political upheaval caused by the Reformation in Europe,Qbegins with Luther nailing his 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberg cathedral -- a historical flash point which would completely disrupt European society. The novel traces the adventures and conflicts of two central characters as they travel across Germany, Italy and the Netherlands. One is an Anabaptist, a member of the most radical Protestant sect. These are the anarchists of the Reformation who revolted against Catholicism and the emerging Reformation church. The other is a Catholic spy and informer. Like the leaders of religious reform, the book’s authors break with tradition -- seeking anonymity behind the pseudonym Luther Blissett. They have successfully created a world of intrigue, violence and intense political and religious passion. A phenomenal bestseller in Italy and Holland –Qis now being translated into eight languages. When it was first published anonymously in Italy, it was widely rumoured to be the work of Umberto Eco.

Astrology is finally getting personal! From the best-selling author of The Secret Language of Birthdays comes a revolution in charting your horoscope based on both the date and time of your birth that makes all other horoscope books irrelevant. With his "Personology" system, Gary Goldschneider has created a unique method which divides each of the twelve signs into five sub-types-such as Aquarius-Pisces Cusp, Pisces I, Pisces II, Pisces III, and Pisces-Aries Cusp-thereby sub-dividing the astrological year into 48 personology periods. The precision this allows is far beyond anything available in any other astrology book and provides a ground-breaking new way for readers to look not only at their own lives, but their interactions with those around them. The book comes packed with easy-to-follow charts covering the sun, eight different planets, and, unique to this book, the rapid fluctuations of the moon for every year from 1900 through 2025. The result is an unprecedented level of precision, as well as a beautifully illustrated volume destined to become the one and only book horoscope readers will treasure for the next twenty years.
