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 serial killer holds New York in his grip. He does not choose his victims. Nor does he watch them die. But then there are too many of them for that. The explosion of a twenty-two storey building, followed by the casual discovery of a letter, lead the police to face up to a dreadful reality: some of New York's buildings were mined at the time of their construction. But which ones? And how many? A young female detective hiding her personal demons behind a tough appearance, and a former press photographer with a past he'd rather forget, and for which he still seeks forgiveness, are the only hope of stopping this psychopath. A man who does not even claim responsibility for his actions. A man who believes himself to be God. Praise for the Giorgio Faletti: 'In my neck of the woods, people like Faletti are called larger than life, living legends' - Jeffery Deaver. 'Publishing sensation' Financial Times. I Kill is one of those bestsellers that proceeds at a cracking pace and presses all the right buttons with clinical efficiency. Giorgio Faletti's thriller is set in Monte Carlo, home to so many obnoxious millionaires and their trophy girlfriends that what the city really needs is a serial killer. Enter just such a killer .. The writing has no great literary pretentions, but then it does not have to. The plot is the thing. Sunday Telegraph. 'The best selling first novel by Giorgio Faletti . . . has been defined as a masterpiece and Faletti himself as the best living Italian writer.' Corriere della Sera.

April, a stripper, has brought her daughter to work at the Puma Club for Men. There she encounters Bassam, a foreign client both remote and too personal, and free with his money.

From these explosive elements comes a relentless, raw, and page-turning narrative that seizes the reader by the throat with psychological tension, depth, and realism.

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. From the Trade Paperback edition.
