"A must read for anyone looking to take his performance to the next level, be it in athletics or in life."—Dean Karnazes, author of Ultra Marathon Man “If there’s anyone out there who has taken extreme to a new level, its Joe De Sena—in adventure racing, in business, and ultimately in the business of adventure! Spartan Up! is must-read.”—Robyn Benincasa, world champion adventure racer and New York Times best-selling author of How Winning Works What do marathoners do when 26.2 miles just isn’t enough anymore? They try obstacle racing, combining the endurance challenges of a marathon with the mind- and body-bending rigors of overcoming obstacles along the way. At the heart of this phenomenon is Joe De Sena, the driving force behind the Spartan Race. De Sena overcame his own obstacles—working his way from Queens to Wall Street to legendary extreme athlete—by adhering to a simple philosophy: commit to a goal, put in the work, and get it done. From that philosophy, as played out now for millions across trails, through mud, and up mountainsides, the Spartan Race was born. Filled with unforgettable stories of Spartan racers as well as hard-won truths learned along the course, Spartan Up! will help you reach your full potential in whatever you set out to do. “Have you ever wanted to be more, been stuck in a funk, or simply wanted make life poignant? Look no further because Spartan Up! is your catalyst. Loaded with real life inspiration and lessons, Joe De Sena uses his supercharged success in life, business, and sports to deliver the nuggets. This is an easy and juicy read; succinct, powerful, and relevant.” —Ian Adamson, world champion adventure racer and author of Runner’s World Guide to Adventure Racing

A writer’s search for inspiration, beauty, and solace leads her to birds in this intimate and exuberant meditation on creativity and life—a field guide to things small and significant. When it comes to birds, Kyo Maclear isn’t seeking the exotic. Rather she discovers joy in the seasonal birds that find their way into view in city parks and harbors, along eaves and on wires. In a world that values big and fast, Maclear looks to the small, the steady, the slow accumulations of knowledge, and the lulls that leave room for contemplation. A distilled, crystal-like companion to H is for Hawk, Birds Art Life celebrates the particular madness of chasing after birds in the urban environment and explores what happens when the core lessons of birding are applied to other aspects of art and life. Moving with ease between the granular and the grand, peering into the inner landscape as much as the outer one, this is a deeply personal year-long inquiry into big themes: love, waiting, regrets, endings. If Birds Art Life was sprung from Maclear’s sense of disconnection, her passions faltering under the strain of daily existence, this book is ultimately about the value of reconnection—and how the act of seeking engagement and beauty in small ways can lead us to discover our most satisfying and meaningful lives.

"The Essential Retirement Guide will detail saving for retirement-- when, why, how, and how much. There is much miscommunication and false information about retirement planning. Inconsistences such as retirement target percentages of final pay, the amount of retirement income needed, and the use of proper investment vehicles, most of which cost hundreds of thousands of dollars more than necessary, all add to the mystification of most retirement planning advice. The book will answer: - When should I start to save? - What takes priority: paying off the mortgage or saving for retirement? - What is the most tax-effective investment vehicle during the accumulation phase? - How should I invest? - How much money do I need to retire comfortably? - How much retirement income will I need? - What percentage of my assets can I spend each year in retirement? - How will my spending habits change over the course of my retirement? - Do I need to worry about the cost of long-term care?"--
