THINK AGAIN! is a title that will take readers on a wild ride through history, science, the natural world and the human body in search of... the TRUTH! Conspiracy theories, popular trivia, old wives' tales, common misconceptions, misinterpretations and other regular falsehoods will be explored to find out why they are wrong, and exactly how and why they may have been adopted as fact. Unlike other information books, aimed at adults and lacking a background context and explanation, this big compendium of curriculum-led subjects will be firmly targeted at today's internet-savvy children by fully detailing the myth or error, plus its historical or scientific background, and then debunking it with a full, clear explanation of the true facts. This is all done in a thoroughly entertaining fashion, using fun typography, fast-paced text, light and fascinating side-stories, and lively, photo-montaged illustrations. Each main entry varies in length based on its importance, complexity and level of interest.

With martial arts champions such as Ken Shamrock and Tito Ortiz appearing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, giving training tips in Muscle & Fitness and Men's Journal, and conducting interviews on Howard Stern's radio show, millions of people are turning to the martial arts for sport, a means of self-defense, and a form of exercise.Many of these newcomers to the martial arts never stepped foot into a martial arts training facility, and have no plans of ever doing so. They want to learn to defend themselves without traveling to a gym or paying steep monthly dues. Some purchase martial arts guidebooks so they can prepare themselves both mentally and physically to enter a dojo a year or two down the road. Martial Arts Unleashed: Jiu-jitsu offers readers:* A detailed history and evolution of the discipline.* A description of the various theories and strategies behind training and competing.* A breakdown of the gear and training space needed to get started.* A description of warm-up routines, footwork, and stances.* Detailed instruction accompanied by step-by-step photographs that divulge everything from the basic kicks, punches, and blocks to the most advanced techniques.* Instruction on how to combine various techniques into sophisticated combinations.* Sample workouts for all levels of training.* Weight lifting programs to improve strength.* Cardiovascular workouts to improve stamina.* Sample diets to improve overall health.* Resources that show readers where to ply their trade and learn even more.For those desiring to learn the martial arts for self-defense rather than sport, the book features a section on those techniques best suited for practical application. For the more advanced students, the book describes how to blend this particular discipline with other styles, utilize certain techniques to defeat practitioners of other disciplines, and prepare for a variety of competitions.

As a young scientist, Birute Mary Galdikas had a mission: To find and study the elusive orangutans of Borneo's rain forest to help protect this amazing and elusive species.

Follow her story as she carries out an epic search and struggles to survive while studying the world's most endangered great ape.

When Galdikas saw her first image of an orangutan in the wild, she was immediately captivated. It haunted her and she found its gaze "almost hypnotic." From that point on, she made it her life's mission to study and work to protect these mysterious creatures, and moved to Borneo.. Like primatologists Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey, Galdikas was driven by incredible ambition and a fascination with apes and human origins, making her way to the harsh rain forests of Indonesian Borneo when she was just 25 years old. She set up a simple camp, named after her mentor, Louis Leakey, and proceeded to look … and look …and look for wild orangutans, one of the most elusive species on the planet. Her studies brought these critically endangered apes to the world stage, and they are still making an impact today. Now in her 70s, Dr. Galdikas has conducted the longest reigning study by any single scientist.

Award-winning author Anita Silvey explores the life and legacy of this incredible and little-known primatologist. With unparalleled storytelling, Silvey offers unique insight into Galdikas' childhood as a refugee and immigrant, her work with National Geographic, her passion of raising awareness about conservation, and her mission of securing a future for orangutans.

"Sunshine, you're my baby and I'm your only mother. You must mind the one taking care of you, but she's not your mama." Ashley Rhodes-Courter spent nine years of her life in fourteen different foster homes, living by those words. As her mother spirals out of control, Ashley is left clinging to an unpredictable, dissolving relationship, all the while getting pulled deeper and deeper into the foster care system.
Painful memories of being taken away from her home quickly become consumed by real-life horrors, where Ashley is juggled between caseworkers, shuffled from school to school, and forced to endure manipulative, humiliating treatment from a very abusive foster family. In this inspiring, unforgettable memoir, Ashley finds the courage to succeed - and in doing so, discovers the power of her own voice.

R478 R443 Discovery Miles 4 430 Save R35 (7%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

One of nature's most perfect relationships

Every spring the monarch butterfly migrates thousands of miles in search of the ideal milkweed plant. When she finds it, she lays her eggs on the plant, so when each egg hatches, the baby caterpillar can feed on the milkweed leaves. The milkweed plant then provides the perfect protection as the caterpillar turns into one of nature's wonders, a chrysalis, before transforming into an even greater wonder: a monarch butterfly. And once the newborn butterfly soars away, the milkweed seeds fly away on the wind and start this cycle over again.

The exacting prose and jewel-toned illustrations echo the harmony of monarch and milkweed in this carefully researched book, explaining one of nature's most spectacular displays in a refreshingly simple manner.
