Ski Well Simply describes in easy to understand terms a method for simple and effective skiing, complete with explanations and rationale for specific how-to's that underpin the method. Whether cruising gently on groomed pistes, plunging through deep powder, bouncing down moguls, or racing around gates, skiing well simply draws on a few select techniques and focuses that combine to produce competent, fun skiing in every situation. The method in Ski Well Simply derives from the author's ongoing quest for simple, effective skiing that is applicable anywhere on the mountain, in any condition, and at any age. It is distilled from years of all-mountain skiing, training with experts, ski racing, technical skiing, and instructing and coaching beginner through expert level skiers. It is the product of a professional engineer's mind being absorbed with seeking a simple solution to a complex and worthy problem. Ski Well Simply is the author's second book on ski technique, the earlier being How I Ski, published in four editions 2009 through 2012, and endorsed by world class athletes and coaches.

Please see www.skiwellsimply.com for book reviews, excerpts and customer testimonials!If you believe that ski technique is the key to having the most fun possible, anywhere on the mountain and whatever the snow condition, then you believe what I believe. Why be limited to having fun only on big powder days, or only when the snow is flawlessly groomed, or only when it is soft and forgiving? I'm constantly searching for the simplest way to ski that delivers a maximum of fun for a minimum of effort—whether I'm teaching other skiers, carving arcs on hard snow, or porpoising down steep and deep powder. What are the expert skiing techniques that allow me to ski with confidence, excitement, and fun, regardless of terrain and condition?* While training to improve my skiing, for free skiing, racing and ski instructing, I began receiving very positive, and at times glowing, feedback from world class trainers and coaches. It got me thinking about 'how' I was skiing, what exactly I was doing and feeling. After all, there were only a handful of things I was focusing on. And interestingly, some things I was doing were at odds with what I was being told to do! Yet the results were convincing. I began wondering if I may have something worth sharing, a simple and effective approach for 'how to ski', that might help others to enjoy skiing as much as I do. To resolve my wondering, I wrote down how I ski, and for originality, titled it How I Ski (with the added tagline: Expert Alpine Skiing Demystified!). The book described my skiing approach and how and why it works, along with advice for different skiing situations, and how to practice skiing-related movements when not on the hill. Throughout, I sought brevity, relevance and clarity, aiming at maximum impact for minimum reading time. The response to this first edition confirmed its value, and highlighted areas where more clarity and completeness would make it even better. The second edition added many diagrams and improved descriptions. To test its mettle, I then asked highly capable athletes and coaches to read it and endorse it if they felt it was 'testimonial worthy'. To my delight, they all did! Since those endorsements, I have continued to tune the content based on feedback from readers, as well as new learning and awareness through using the content when teaching others. The current product (the fourth edition) is a compact package that I'm confident will be well worth your time to read and ponder in relation to your own skiing approach and objectives. Thank you for reading! *You guessed it—the expert techniques are all in the book!!

A comprehensive history of skiing from its earliest origins to the outbreak of World War II, this book traces the transformation of what for centuries remained an exclusively utilitarian practice into the exhilarating modern sport we know today. E. John B. Allen places particular emphasis on the impact of culture on the development of skiing, from the influence of Norwegian nationalism to the role of the military in countries as far removed as Austria, India, and Japan. Although the focus is on Europe, Allen's analysis ranges all over the snow-covered world, from Algeria to China to Zakopane. He also discusses the participation of women and children in what for much of its history remained a male-dominated sport. Of all the individuals who contributed to the modernization of skiing before World War II, Allen identifies three who were especially influential: Fridtjof Nansen of Norway, whose explorations on skis paradoxically inspired the idea of skiing as sport; Arnold Lunn of England, whose invention of downhill skiing and the slalom were foundations of the sport's globalization; and Hannes Schneider, whose teachings introduced both speed and safety into the sport. Underscoring the extent to which ancient ways persisted despite modernization, the book ends with the Russo-Finnish War, a conflict in which the Finns, using equipment that would have been familiar a thousand years before, were able to maneuver in snow that had brought the mechanized Soviet army to a halt. More than fifty images not only illustrate this rich history but provide further opportunity for analysis of its cultural significance.

Living Simply, Living Rich offers a unique perspective on the concept of simple living. While most discussions on the topic take the position that simple living requires adherence to the idea that we must “do without” and embrace absolute minimalism, Bob Lee insists that simple living is no more the right path than capitalism or materialism. “Crash diets, whether in nutrition or lifestyles, have no chance of permanent success,” he states. Instead, this book shows how a more focused lifestyle offers fulfillment, a responsible way of living and a more realistic approach to sustained changes in the way we interact with the world around us. Living Simply, Living Rich works, whether you are poor or rich, middle-income or no income. It is an approach to living that remembers that the whole approach is just that: about living. Experiences replace acquisitions, relationships replace career success. This book may be life changing, but it is not a lifestyle manual. It is a pathway to choosing your unique road. Robert Frost was right. Choosing the least travelled path will make all the difference.
