            'Everything moves more slowly when I walk, the world seems softer . . .' From the bestselling author of Silence comes an illuminating exploration of the joy of walking. From those perilous first steps to great expeditions, from walking to work to walking to the North Pole, Erling... Kagge explains that he who walks lives longer, and better. 'After having put my shoes on and let my thoughts wander, I am sure of one thing - to put one foot in front of the other is one of the most important things we do.' 'Erling Kagge is a philosophical adventurer - or perhaps an adventurous philosopher' - New York Times 'Drawing on the experiences of Kagge's extraordinary life in wild places, this is a book of great concentration' - Robert Macfarlane, on Silence

            Memoir of an elite alpinist Authentic story of rising above limitations to realize your potential In 1986, Sharon Wood was part of a self-supported Canadian team with big ambitions: they were attempting to reach the summit of Everest via a variation on the dangerous West Ridge. A...nd they intended that Wood would be the first North American woman to reach the summit. At the same time, however, there was an American team on the mountain with a plan to make Annie Whitehouse the first North American woman. The American climbers were attempting an easier route, but their team included, by coincidence, Wood's exboyfriend, acclaimed mountaineer Carlos Buhler, now dating Whitehouse--certainly the makings of an exciting adventure and high-altitude drama! But Sharon's new memoir offers much more. Fast-paced and highly readable, Rising is a thoughtful literary story redolent with twists and turns, relatable characters and dialogue, and mental and emotional conflicts. Although Everest casts a long shadow, the mountain serves here as a stage for a more human story, not one of conquest.

            Hiking with Nietzsche: Becoming Who You Are

            Hiking with Nietzsche: Becoming Who You Are (Hardback)

            Hiking with Nietzsche is a tale of two philosophical journeys - one made by John Kaag as an introspective teenager, the other seventeen years later in radically different circumstances: now a husband and father with his wife and small child in tow. Kaag travels to the Swiss peaks... above Sils Maria, where Nietzsche routinely summered, and where he wrote his mysterious landmark work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Both trips are made in search of the wisdom at the core of Nietzsche's philosophy, yet they bring Kaag to radically different interpretations and revelations about the human condition. Hiking with Nietzsche is an entertaining, intimate exploration not only of Nietzsche's ideals but of how his philosophy relates to us in the twenty-first century. It is about defeating complacency, balancing sanity and madness and coming to grips with the unobtainable. It speaks to our different stages of life. As Kaag hikes, alone or with his family, but always with Nietzsche, he finds that even slipping can be instructive. It is in the process of climbing and the inevitable missteps, that one has the chance, in Nietzsche's words, to 'become who you are.'
