The Combat Codes (The Combat Codes Saga Book 1)

by Alexander Darwin

The Combat Codes fuses thrilling mixed martial arts action into an immersive sci-fi world. A must-read for any fan of unarmed combat.

Murray Pearson is sick of buying broken kids from the slave Circles. He’s sick of training them to become skilled combatants, only to watch them break again. He’s sick of reporting his failures as a talent scout to men who don’t have the guts to stand in the Circles themselves.

Cego doesn’t understand why he’s fighting. He doesn’t understand the grueling training sessions he’s forced to endure every day. He doesn’t understand why they scream for blood when he steps into the Circle. The one thing Cego does understand is hand-to-hand combat. He was born to fight.

Cego is sent down an unlikely path at Murray’s side, paved with fierce competition at the world’s most prestigious combat school along with the answers to his own mysterious past.



Weltretten Geht anders: Für Menschen, die ausgetretene Pfade verlassen (German Edition)

by Alexander Zettrawski

Eine Anleitung, um sich selbst und die Welt zu gesunden – ohne Einsatz von Zeit oder Geld und trotzdem mit Genuss und Freude. Utopie? 

Der Autor nimmt uns mit auf eine ungewöhnliche Reise und es bleibt nicht aus, dass wir uns gegen seine Vorstellungen sträuben. Wenn wir jedoch die Reise abgeschlossen haben, überkommt uns eine Ahnung, dass in seinem Denken und Handeln nicht nur ein gewisses Potential liegen könnte, sondern dass er vielleicht sogar den entscheidenden Punkt gefunden hat, um jeden Einzelnen, die Gesellschaft als Ganzes und darüber die Natur mit neuer Kraft und Lebensenergie zu versehen und vor weiterem Verfall zu schützen. 

Es ist ein Einführungsbuch in zwei scheinbar völlig getrennte Bereiche. Zum einen geht es um die persönliche Optimierung einer angenehmen und trotzdem gesunden Freizeitaktivität, die mit dem Begriff â??Sport” nicht korrekt beschrieben ist, weil es vielmehr ein täglicher kurzzeitiger Aktivurlaub ist. Auf der anderen Seite geht es um die Frage: Wie kann man die Welt retten? Ist sie überhaupt zu retten? Und warum haben alle bisherigen Versuche nicht dazu geführt, dass der offensichtlich in eine Sackgasse führende Weg der gegenwärtigen Entwicklung der Menschheit korrigiert wird?

Das Buch vermittelt konzentriert die Erfahrung aus drei�ig Jahren Weltbeobachten und  Aktivitäten zum Weltverbessern und einer zehnjährigen theoretisch begleiteten tagtäglich angewandten Lauf- und Naturerlebniswelt.



Tranquillity Regained: Tales of Sport with the Gun (Tranquillity Series Book 3)

by Harold Sheldon

Few books have captured the real New England life so poignantly as the Tranquillity stories of Colonel Harold P. Sheldon. Tranquillity, Tranquillity Revisited and Tranquillity Restored rank as the classic description of not just hunting, but a sporting way of life in the town of Tranquillity (based on Fair Haven, Vermont).

Tranquillity is the fictional name of that special township that lies peacefully spread over the fertile valley of western Vermont. It is a place where there are but two seasons, hunting and fishing, and where time has dealt gently with the countryside and its inhabitants, inhabitants like the Judge, the Doctor, Uncle Bill Paraday, the Captain and his Dark-Haired Lady, and all their friends, kindly, humorous, tolerant, loyal and brave.

Fans of sporting and nature will laugh and wryly smile at this classic trilogy that has been a favorite for over 75 years.

Expedi̤̣o Ṣo Paulo РParaty: 405 km de Brasil (Portuguese Edition)

by Carlos Antunes

Começou como um pensamento fixo…
No coração ou no corpo, uma inquietação crescente que se transformava em vontade de chegar no Mar.
Talvez ideia adormecida de outras felizes paradas em Paraty, me pareceu o porto ideal para a viagem que começava a se desenhar na minha imaginação.
Corre para lá e para cá, para tentar encontrar uma via, um caminho, mapas, experiências e conselhos, aparentemente tudo já se encontrava montado em pedaços, apenas isolados – foi uma delícia juntar os pontos e montar o «puzzle».
Sair de São Paulo, pedalando sozinho, de casa e passando pelo Marco Zero, ponto central em frente à Sé, Catedral da cidade e que marca as distâncias de todas as ruas e rodovias do Estado. E percorrendo estradas rurais, por entre vales e povoações, subir pelas Serras, ultrapassar a descida e chegar ao Mar!



Survival Hacks: Over 50 Survival Hacks You Need To Know In The Wilderness

by Kemp Eardwulf

All across the world, people are preparing for an imminent disaster. Some believe a deadly plague will destroy the human race; others are convinced the end will come in a mutiny of the machines, while others think mankind will be annihilated by an alien invasion. Is this just all personal paranoia? Not according to a growing body of scientists, survivalists, and academics.

One thing is for sure: when all hell breaks loose, we’re going to have to go back to the basics. The closest that we have come to an apocalypse on earth was the Black Death, which arrived in Europe 700 years ago. Some people believe that we are primed for another catastrophic pandemic. But this time, it may not be accidental.

A teenager died in Kyrgyzstan after eating a plague-infected marmot. Government agencies know that a disaster like this is just a plane ride away, and panic spreads easily as it did in Surat in India. Half a million people fled the city when hundreds are infected by plague-ridden rats.

Pandemics aren’t the only thing that could cause utter chaos. Some years ago in Japan, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Fukushima. This triggered a 40 feet tsunami that almost wiped the city clear off the map.

Disasters like these come like a thief in the night. And it would be in your best interest to prepare for it and survive.

Do you want to be the person who will be caught with their pants down when disaster strikes? Or do you want to be the one who is prepared and is able to survive?

If you’re the latter, then definitely get this book. When disaster strikes and all else fails, this book will serve as your guide on how to come out alive. If food is scarce and you and your family needs to live off the land, this book will serve as your Bible. If there is not shelter for miles and you have to improvise, this book will serve as your codex.

Just to give you a taste of what’s in store for you, below is a quick list of what this book will teach you:

-Creating your Bug Out Bag-Take
-Preparing a survival kit
-How to choose camp sites
-Finding/Making Shelters
-Lighting a fire w/o matches
-Water procurement
-…and a whole lot more.

So if you want to ensure your survival. Buy this book now!
