New Holland 236422 Australia 2003 1843301385 / 9781843301387 Softcover Very Good Condition Making the most of a yard or garden does not necessarily mean being a green-fingered enthusiast and people are increasingly seeing their garden as an outdoor room - personalizing the garden has never been more popular. Wood, water and stone are basic elements that should be present in any garden. Wood is readily available, easy to work with and inexpensive, while stone has been used for centuries for its durability, strength and versatility. Water is crucial to life and its introduction into a garden will add balance and calm, as well as a sense of fun. Step-by-Step Garden DIY presents 48 functional yet attractive projects, from trellises and planters, to paths, rockeries, fountains and waterfalls. Each has step-by-step photographs and instructions and the finished piece is photographed in its garden setting. Clear construction diagrams and concise text accompany every project, and there are inspirational spreads featuring stunning garden structures to provide even more ideas for the DIY enthusiast. With expert advice on staining and varnishing wood for the outdoors to ensure that it lasts, this is both an attractive and accessible practical DIY book. 383 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Chaucer - Canterbury Tales, A.C. Cawley [Editor]
3 A.C. Cawley [Editor] Chaucer - Canterbury Tales
Dent 237063 London 1984 Reprint 0460113070 / 9780460113076 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket Inspired by Boccaccio's "Decameron", and framed as a storytelling competition between a group of pilgrims, Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Canterbury Tales" is one of the greatest works of English literature, translated from the Middle English with an introduction by Nevill Coghill in "Penguin Classics". In "The Canterbury Tales" Chaucer created one of the great touchstones of English literature, a masterly collection of chivalric romances, moral allegories and low farce. A story-telling competition between a group of pilgrims from all walks of life is the occasion for a series of tales that range from the Knight's account of courtly love and the ebullient Wife of Bath's Arthurian legend, to the ribald anecdotes of the Miller and the Cook. Rich and diverse, "The Canterbury Tales" offers us an unrivalled glimpse into the life and mind of Medieval England. Nevill Coghill's masterly and vivid English verse translation is rendered with consummate skill to retain all the vigour and poetry of Chaucer's fourteenth-century Middle English. Geoffrey Chaucer (c.1343-1400) was an English author, poet, philosopher, courtier and diplomat, best known as the author of "The Canterbury Tales". Chaucer is credited as being the first author to demonstrate the artistic legitimacy of the vernacular English language. The first poet to have been buried in the Poet's Corner of Westminster Abbey, his other works include "The House of Fame", "Troilus and Criseyde" and "The Book of the Duchess". If you enjoyed "The Canterbury Tales", you might like Boccaccio's "Decameron" 612 pages. Pages browned. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Cover edges rubbed. Quantity Available: 1.

Prometheus and Other Plays: Prometheus Bound; The Suppliants; Seven Against Thebes and The Persians, Aeschylus [Phillip Vellacott - Translated with an introduction]
4 Aeschylus [Phillip Vellacott - Translated with an introduction] Prometheus and Other Plays: Prometheus Bound; The Suppliants; Seven Against Thebes and The Persians
Penguin Classics 240239 London, England. 1966 Reprint Softcover Good Condition (ex-library) No Dust Jacket The first of the great Greek Tragedians, Aeschylus wrote a large number of plays, of which seven survive. Of the four included in this volume, The Persians is unique in Greek tragedy in having as its subject matter a recent historical event, the defeat of the Persians at the famous battle of Salamis. The other three, Prometheus, The Suppliants and Seven Against Thebes, were all written as parts of trilogies and take their themes from Greek legend, but in each Aeschylus' interpretation reflects the new morality of classical Athens. Thus, in Seven Against Thebes the fate of the two main figures, Eteocles and Polyneices, is not entirely controlled by the gods, for Eteocles is free to choose whether or not he should fight his brother. And in Prometheus and The Suppliants Aeschylus shows that although the struggle of reason against violence can never be an easy one, it is reason that is the proper principle of civilized life. 160 pages.

Here To Eternity: An Anthology of Poetry, Andrew Motion
7 Andrew Motion Here To Eternity: An Anthology of Poetry
Faber and Faber 245787 Great Britain 2002 0571215653 / 9780571215652 Softcover Very Good Condition Since becoming Poet Laureate in 1999, Andrew Motion has been tireless in his efforts to raise the profile of poetry. In this anthology, he has brought together a wide range of poems, exemplifying his belief that, if we let it, poetry has a unique power to enrich our lives as it diversifies them. The poems are arranged in a series of ten concentric rings: "Self", "Home", "Town", "Work", "Land", "Love", "Travel", "War", "Belief" and "Space". Each section is distinct but seeks out resemblances and echoes elsewhere, creating the impression of an endlessly expanding universe. From Wallace Stevens to Stevie Smith, Joseph Brodsky, to Jo Shapcott, Bob Dylan to Dylan Thomas, Ben Jonson to Benjamin Zephaniah, this anthology should provide the perfect introduction for new readers and offer surprising connections and revelations to those who are already well-versed. 402 pages.

10 Anthony Holden Big Deal: One Year as a Professional Poker Player
Abacus 234944 Great Britain 2005 Reprint 0349115192 / 9780349115191 Softcover Very Good Condition BIG DEAL is the mesmerising story of a year spent by bestselling biographer Anthony Holden in the tough world of the professional poker player. He spent days and nights in the poker paradise of Las Vegas, in Malta and Morocco, even shipboard, mingling with the legendary greats, sharpening his game, perfecting his repartee, and learning a great deal about himself in the process.Poker, Holden would insist, is not gambling. Like chess it is a paradigm of life at its most intense, a gladiatorial contest that brings out the best as well as the worst in people. Its heroes, its eccentrics and is comedians stalk the pages of this remarkable book, along with all the hair-raising, nail-biting excitement of the games themselves.A classic of the genre, BIG DEAL is here reissued with a new introduction by the author. 384 pages.

Breathing Slower and Less: The Greatest Health Discovery Ever, Artour Rakhimov
13 Artour Rakhimov Breathing Slower and Less: The Greatest Health Discovery Ever
Private Publication 243842 2014 1496179420 / 9781496179425 Softcover Very Good Condition Victor Lunn-Rockliffe Tired of endless diets and dieting for weight loss or less medication? Want a health therapy that is based on exact goals (with specific numbers for you to achieve!) and provides a guarantee of ideal health and absence of chronic disease, medication, and symptoms? Want to know more about the method (the Buteyko breathing method) that was used for the best ever known clinical trial on cancer and 6 most effective trials on asthma? If you answered yes to some or all of these questions, you are on the right page. You can eat tons of supplements and super foods, drink canisters of super drinks, have 100's of colonic irrigations, and practice yoga for hours every day, but, if your breathing remains unchanged, your symptoms, doses of medication, chronic insomnia, and other health problems will likely remain unchanged too. This is because correct breathing brings vital oxygen, and less than 95% of modern people have right breathing. Modern people, including so called "normal subjects," simply breathe too much air day and night. (Exact charts, graphs, studies and numbers are inside the book.) People also believe that it is good to breathe more air at rest, but overbreathing reduces O2 levels in cells. The most successful clinical trial in the whole history of cancer research was conducted using the Buteyko method. The results of this trial on 120 people with metastatic cancer (early metastasis) were published in the Ukrainian Oncology Journal. The group that practiced reduced Buteyko breathing exercises had 6 times less mortality in 3 years in comparison with the control group. (See "Doctors Who Cure Cancer" for more detail.) Here is another fact: 6 most effective Western clinical trials on asthma were conducted using the same Buteyko method that targets elimination of chronic hyperventilation. Diets, yoga and any other "natural" or holistic therapy is not even remotely close to breathing normalization. What is common for cancer and asthma? Symptoms and development of these health problems correlates with O2 levels in body cells. But this is true not only for cancer and asthma, we need more oxygen in body cells to prevent and fight over 150 most popular modern diseases! The conditions are ranging from heart disease and cancer, the main killers in the west, to hormonal and digestive problems, diabetes, and asthma. Natural weight loss and great sleep are common side effects of breathing normalization known to any Buteyko breathing teacher. This book provides an introduction to the Buteyko breathing method and breathing retraining. It provides results of 100s of studies, review of lifestyle factors and clinical trials, effects of breathing retraining on common health problems, as well as analysis of the most important questions related to breathing retraining and long-term success in health restoration. For exact topics covered in this book, see titles of chapters and sections. 166 pages. Illustrator: Victor Lunn-Rockliffe. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
