Swimming with Dr Johnson and Mrs Thrale: Sport, Health and Exercise in Eighteenth-Century England by Julia Allen (£20.50)Publisher: Cambridge: The Lutterworth Press — 2012Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 9780718892760]Condition: Very Good. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated by way of: Portraits; Black & White Plates; Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “In this well researched and highly readable exploration of the history of British sport, Julia Allen shows that our nation’s obsession with sport is no new phenomenon. Drawing extensively on contemporary writings, reports and journals, Allen introduces Dr Johnson and Mrs Thrale while exploring the medical theories upon which eighteenth-century notions about exercise were based. The role of the physician, the work of the surgeon, the social context in which exercise was held and an in-depth description of the state of sport at the time are given including the rules, specific health benefits and whether women were permitted to join in.

Casting a historian’s eye over swimming, dancing, running, boxing, riding and skating as well as providing biographies of those who took part, this book promises to keep alive the love of sport long after the buzz of the Olympics has died down.”

The Human Factor in Aircraft Accidents by David Beaty (£19.00)Publisher: London: The Scientific Book Club — 1969Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded. Bruised at the tail of the spine. Pages lightly age-tanned with heavier offset to the endpapers. Description: Illustrated by way of: Appendices [2]; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Although considerable progress has been made in increasing the reliability of airplanes, very little has been accomplished in reducing the element of human error in aircraft accidents.

So said the first International Civil Aviation Organisation’s first volume of accident reports seventeen years ago. But in the interim the view that human error accidents are inevitable has prevailed. It is this view that David Beaty attacks in The Human Factor in Aircraft Accidents. Investigating into an almost totally unexplored area, he has related aircraft accidents to known psychological concepts of fatigue, perception, laterality, conflict, frustration, learning and decision-taking.

This book takes a cool scientific look at the whole problem. Not at all sensational, but none the less of exciting interest, it tells the stories of aircraft accidents and interprets them in psychological terms. And at the same time, it suggests the prospect that, if psychological factors were properly investigated and better understood, a considerable cut would be effected in the now, rising aircraft accident rate.”

Yoga For You: A Step-by-step Guide to Yoga At Home For Everybody by Tara Fraser (£19.00)Publisher: Duncan Baird Publishers — 2001Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1903296102]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Yoga for You is a complete illustrated practical guide that reflects some of the most important developments in modern teaching — the release of pent-up stress from busy lives, the emphasis on physical comfort and safety (working within your own abilities rather than forcing yourself into demanding postures), and the holistic approach, which combines yoga with an appropriate lifestyle, especially with regard to diet and meditation.

Whatever your level of fitness and flexibility, Yoga for You is designed to meet your needs — whether you are a complete beginner or already have experience from classes.

More than 200 step-by-step colour photographs take you through the essential asanas (postures) and sequences. The author explains the essentials in plain, simple language. Special “boxes” suggest how beginners can adapt the classic postures to make them easier to perform — while more experienced students are shown how to progress to more challenging asanas as they build up their skills.

The practical core of the book is complemented by coverage of yoga’s traditional physiological, philosophical and spiritual context, and its roots in ancient India. The idea that the body has its own energy pathways and centres in the form of nadis and chakras is explored in a way that is clear and inspiring to Western readers.

Specific topics addressed include: the different types of yoga; finding and working with a teacher; how to start practising yoga at home; posture sequences; doing yoga with a partner; and learning to meditate.

Whatever your lifestyle, time pressures, beliefs, or levels of flexibility and fitness, Yoga for You takes you step by step along the path to inner and outer calm.”

The Thinking Man's Guide to Golf: The Common-sense Way to Improve Your Game by Colin Montgomerie (£14.50)Publisher: Orion — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0752853724]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Description: Illustrated by way of: Colour Photographs; Illustrated endpapers and blanks;

From the cover: “Colin Montgomerie has always said that he could save an amateur golfer five or six shots a round if he were able to caddie for them; and that is what he sets out to achieve within the pages of his first instructional book. The seven-time European Tour number one is one of the world’s most accomplished golfers, and in The Thinking Man’s Guide to Golf he uses his own unique common-sense approach in order to shave shots from your score.

Monty sets out to give the reader an A — Z guide on how to improve your game. Starting with the basics, he goes on to talk about curing common faults, improving your short game, choosing the right equipment and all other aspects of the Royal & Ancient game, including:

  • The four key swing thoughts that have made Monty the golfer he is.
  • How to cure your slice and hook.
  • The best way to learn how to shape your shots.
  • Why using a belly putter maximises your chances of holing more putts.
  • How to hit the speciality shots that make the top Tour professionals so deadly around the greens.
  • How to get the most from your practice sessions.
  • Why improved fitness can help your game.
Most crucially, within the extended chapter dedicated to playing smart golf, Monty teaches you the tricks that will enable you to reduce your scores without changing your swing. He understands that the average amateur cannot spend as much time practising as the Tour professionals, which is why he puts so much emphasis on the best ways to improve your course maintenance. The advice is simple, and is presented in a clear and concise manner that golfers of all standards can learn from. What’s more, it has also been proven to work.”

The Irritable Bowel Syndrome Source Book by Laura O'Hare (£13.00)Publisher: Contemporary Books — 2001Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0737305533]Condition: Near Fine.Description: From the cover: “Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the most common gastrointestinal complaints. It is classified as a functional disorder because it can be neither detected through standard medical testing nor linked to any specific structural or biochemical cause. Therefore, IBS is diagnosed only through the presence of symptoms such as pain and cramps, gas and bloating, diarrhoea, or constipation. Such symptoms can be extremely debilitating, making IBS a leading cause of worker absenteeism, second only to the common cold. Irritable bowel syndrome is also referred to as spastic colon, mucous colitis, spastic colitis, nervous stomach, or irritable colon. Although it is diagnosed most frequently in women from early adulthood to midlife, anyone can have IBS, including children. All sufferers seem to experience a common frustration because symptoms are frequently embarrassing and seem to arise without warning. Moreover, the search for a solution can be an anxious, disheartening experience that concludes with a vague diagnosis and a trial-and-error approach to treatment. In The Irritable Bowel Syndrome Sourcebook, you will learn: About the normal functioning of the gastrointestinal tract; How the symptoms of IBS are diagnosed and misdiagnosed; How to identify your own dietary and environmental triggers for IBS, including food allergies and food sensitivity; How to manage IBS triggers through food restriction plans and changes in your “eating lifestyle”; How to identify and manage the stress and depression that can also trigger IBS; The link between IBS and other conditions, such as fibromyalgia, nonulcer dyspepsia, acute and bacterial gastroenteritis, and globus hystericus; The role that alcohol abuse or dependence plays in the syndrome; Alternative therapies, including herbal medicine, meditation, acupuncture, biofeedback, hypnosis, and creative visualization.”Notes: Size: 9" x 6". 166 pages.

Description: From the cover: “After more than three decades as one of the world’s premier sources for authoritative, trustworthy health information, The People’s Pharmacy delivers its most groundbreaking resource yet, identifying best choice treatments for the medical conditions that smart health-care consumers most want to know about.

What makes a treatment a “best choice”? The designation draws on a combination of factors, including effectiveness, safety, and cost. Depending on the condition, the best choices may be home remedies, lifestyle strategies, herbal or nutritional supplements, over-the-counter or prescription drugs — or, in many cases, a combination of all of these.

Best Choices from The People’s Pharmacy is the first book to present such a wide range of treatment options and evaluate them side by side. Inside this exclusive expanded edition you’ll find:

  • Remedies for dozens of health concerns, from acne to weight loss.
  • Thumbnails that offer at-a-glance descriptions of the best choices- complete with vital information on possible side effects and approximate cost.
  • Ratings that allow you to compare the treatment options for each condition with ease.
  • The People’s Pharmacy Favourite Picks — a selection of self-care strategies tested and recommended by People’s Pharmacy fans.
  • A survival guide of must-have remedies collected from top health experts who answered the question, “What three things would you take to a desert island?”
Best Choices from the People’s Pharmacy is the latest work from Joe and Terry Graedon, whose incisive investigation and reporting of all aspects of health care has earned them a worldwide audience. The Graedons have culled their best choices through careful review of current scientific research as well as testimonials from their legion of People’s Pharmacy readers and listeners. Armed with this information, you can make the best choice for you.”

From the cover: “Mention the name Bill Phillips to any of the people he’s helped transform, and you will see their faces light up with appreciation and respect. These people include:

  • Hundreds of thousands of men and women who read his magazine for guidance and straightforward information about exercise, nutrition, and living with strength.
  • Elite professional athletes — among them John Elway, Karl Malone, Mike Piazza, and Terrell Davis-who have turned to Phillips for clear-cut information to enhance their energy and performance.
  • People once plagued by obesity, alcoholism, and life-threatening ailments who accepted a personal challenge from Bill Phillips and, with his help, have regained control of their bodies and lives.
When you begin to apply the information in this book, you will be proving to yourself that astounding changes are within your grasp too. And, you will discover Body-for-Life is much more than a book about physical fitness — it’s a gateway to a new and better life — a life of rewarding and fulfilling moments, perhaps more spectacular than you’ve ever dared to dream before.

Within 12 weeks, you too are going to know — not believe, but know — that the transformation you’ve created with your body is merely an example of the power you have to transform everything else in your world.”

The most famous cricket umpire of them all, Dickie has done that difficult job more skilfully than anyone else. Moreover he has done it in his idiosyncratic style and with the infectious humour which has endeared him to millions throughout the world, transcending his sport.

Throughout his life he has courted both controversy and comedy.

Pages lightly age-tanned with a slight ripple through the text block. Slightly fragile with age now. Description: A Later Printing. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Drawings;

From the cover: “In an age when more and more people drive to their desks on wheels, physical fitness has become an almost universal problem. The need for exercise is felt, but we do not all have the time, the taste, or the facilities for organized games.

With this kind of situation in mind, the Royal Canadian Air Force developed its now famous Plans 5BX and XBX for men and women. The basic exercises, which are clearly detailed with diagrams in this book, can be performed without any special equipment in the most confined space. They can be completed daily in eleven or twelve minutes without any danger of exhaustion since the advance to fitness has been gently graded.

These exercise plans do appear to offer a practicable answer — with no Olympic standards of training in view — to the modern problem of getting fit, feeling fit, and keeping fit, in a mechanized age.

The permission of the Royal Canadian Air Force for making the text of this training pamphlet available is gratefully acknowledged.”

DJ slightly ruffled at the edges.Description: From the cover: “Allergies have become something of an obsession in the 1990s: press reports talk of ‘an allergy to life’; and scientists tell that the extraordinary increase in allergy cases over the last century can be put down to environmental pollution as a result of the increasing industrialization of society. This book shows allergy sufferers that there are other ways to reduce the risk of provoking an allergic response and of treating one if it occurs. First, it cuts through the jargon, using clear no-nonsense language to explain what allergies are and what causes them, before discussing the pros and cons of conventional medical treatment. Then it discusses the various types of allergy, from food allergies to allergic skin conditions, with cross-references to the various types of natural treatment that follow. Next the book shows how natural remedies — from herbal medicines, elimination diets and homeopathy to stress-management techniques — can help by both alleviating the symptoms of an allergic response and prevent one from occurring.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 7".

Sensual Woman: An Exploration of the 1 Meaning and Value of Sensuality by Sarah Bartlett (£10.50)Publisher: London House — 1999Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 1902809009]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “This is the first book comprehensively to address sensuality and the reasons for the modern world’s increasing ignorance of its multi-dimensional nature and relevance to daily life. Those of the ‘tabloid generation’ who have allowed their view of sensuality to become limited to the singular sense of vision will find themselves challenged to appreciate that sensuality is not sexuality, that it is the use, demonstration and understanding of all the senses, and perhaps the sixth sense too.

Sarah Bartlett gently but firmly guides the reader through the history of her diverse topic, discussing the roots and early examples of sensual woman, showing how ancient races and cultures developed it, questioning if men have sacrificed their sensuality for the cause of a dominant role which shunned its values, and giving copious examples of sensuality in women from history, myth and legend, and the present day.

At a time when as many seem to want to suppress their sensuality as seek to enhance it, this challenging volume raises the issue to a higher level. Readers will come to ask themselves why some women, wearing the traditional costumes of certain countries and perhaps fully covered but for the eyes, can evoke a sensuality not evident in a scantily-clad model on the catwalk, how the love and wise use of one’s own sensuality can enrich life and bring a fuller understanding of its purpose.

By demeaning it through its undemanding culture, modern society has caused sensuality to become a ‘hot’ topical issue; it is eloquently addressed in Sensual Woman.”

First Edition. [ISBN: 0715303457]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges.Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Graphs; Colour Photographs; Diagrams; From the cover: “This unique book brings together the four most important aspects of the veterinary care of the competition horse. Respected equine vet and author Colin Vogel examines each one in detail, showing how they are equally important in creating and maintaining optimum performance for every type of horse. He gives the facts on correct feeding, and exposes some of the misguided feeding practices still used by horse owners today. In helping owners choose the best training methods for their particular animal with the aim of achieving maximum fitness, he shows the wisdom of not pushing for too much too soon; and he provides for the first time a comprehensive guide to the causes and treatment of lameness, aimed specifically at owners of performance horses. He also demonstrates how all kinds of problems can be avoided by practising preventive medicine — vaccinations, worming programmes and correct stable management systems. The author’s gift for explaining complex scientific principles in a way that any horse owner can understand easily means that this book will become the competitor’s first point of reference on his or her route to achieving that elusive first prize.”Notes: Illustrated by Kit Houghton & Bob Lanrish.

Now, in The Prize, oil has become the subject of a book which does justice to the great struggle for wealth and power that has always surrounded the black gold. .
