    Description: ' For 30 years I was the voice of sport at The Times - but that's enough about me. What matters is sport.' This is an autobiography from which the author, award-winning writer Simon Barnes, has been surgically removed. He has reported on six World Cups, seven Olympic Games, cricket on five continents and more than 20 Wimbledons, watching Diego Maradona, Usain Bolt, Sachin Tendulkar and Roger Federer at their peak. Along the way he had soul-revealing conversations with Ayrton Senna and sat on Desert Orchid. His journalist's experience gives him perspective, until the addictive madness of sport takes over. Epic is a stunning mosaic of some of the greatest sporting moments in recent years, which build up to provide the reader with a better idea of what sport is for, what differentiates winners from losers, and reveals how sport teaches us how better to enjoy life. This is sport unplugged. Speaking for itself. Allowing the reader to understand sport with more clarity and depth than ever before.

Epic Crush Of Genie Lo
Category: Books
Description: Genie Lo is one among droves of Ivy-hopeful overachievers in her sleepy Bay Area suburb. When she's not crushing it at volleyball, Genie is typically working on how to crack the elusive Harvard entry code. But when her hometown comes under siege from hellspawn straight out of Chinese folklore, her priorities are dramatically rearranged. Enter Quentin Sun, a mysterious new kid who becomes Genie's guide to battling demons. While Genie knows Quentin only as an attractive transfer student, in another reality he is Sun Wukong, the mythological Monkey King incarnate. Suddenly, acing the SATs is the least of Genie's worries. This epic debut draws from Chinese mythology, features a larger-than-life heroine, and perfectly balances the realities of Genie's grounded Bay Area life with the absurd supernatural world she finds herself commanding.

Magnify Epicureanism: A Very Short Introduction
Epicureanism: A Very Short Introduction
Epicureanism: A Very Short Introduction
Category: Books
Description: Epicureanism is commonly associated with a carefree view of life and the pursuit of pleasures, particularly the pleasures of the table. However it was a complex and distinctive system of philosophy that emphasized simplicity and moderation, and considered nature to consist of atoms and the void. Epicureanism is a school of thought whose legacy continues to reverberate today. In this Very Short Introduction, Catherine Wilson explains the key ideas of the School, comparing them with those of the rival Stoics and with Kantian ethics, and tracing their influence on the development of scientific and political thought from Locke, Newton, and Galileo to Rousseau, Marx, Bentham, and Mill. She discusses the adoption and adaptation of Epicurean motifs in science, morality, and politics from the 17th Century onwards and contextualises the significance of Epicureanism in modern life. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Description: A smart, funny play about love, friendship and growing up, from the author of WINK and Fury. Remember your best friend? No, the other one. The one that liked to lie. Maybe it's time they 'fessed up. Maybe Doll and Ted should start telling the truth. Doll is on the mic, Ted is on backing vocals. Set to the greatest love songs of all time, this is what happens when the lights come on, you're singing your heart out to Celine Dion, you've been sick on your shoes, and you realise you might just have to grow up. Phoebe Eclair- Powell's Epic Love and Pop Songs was first performed at the Pleasance Dome during the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Epic Bike Rides Of The World [paperback] By Lonely Planet Edition - 1 Ebook
Category: Books
Brand: Lonely Planet
Description: Discover 200 of the best places to ride a bike in this beautifully illustrated paperback. From family-friendly, sightseeing urban rides to epic adventures off the beaten track. Destinations range from France and Italy, for the world's great bike races, to the wilds of Mongolia and Patagonia. These journeys will inspire - whether you are an experienced cyclist or just getting started. The book is organised by continent. In the Americas we join a family bikepacking trip in Ecuador; we pedal the Natchez Trace Parkway and stop at legendary music spots; we ride the Pacific Coast Highway in Oregon and California; go mountain biking in Moab and Canada; and explore the cities of Buenos Aires and New York by bicycle. European rides include easy-going trips around Lake Constance, along the Danube and the Loire, and coast-to-coast routes; routes in Tuscany, Spain and Corsica; and professional journeys up Mt Ventoux and around the Tour of Flanders. In Asia, we venture through Vietnam's valleys; complete the Mae Hong Son circuit in northern Thailand; cross the Indian Himalayas; and pedal through Bhutan. And in Australia and New Zealand we take in Tasmania and Queensland by mountain bike; cycle into Victoria's high country and around Adelaide on road bikes; and try some of New Zealand's celebrated cycle trails. Each ride is illustrated with stunning photography and a map. A toolkit of practical details - where to start and finish, how to get there, where to stay and more - helps riders plan their own trips. There are also suggestions for three more similar rides around the world for each story. Each piece shows how cycling is a fantastic way to get to know a place, a people and their culture.

Magnify The Return Of The Epic Film
The Return Of The Epic Film

The Return Of The Epic Film


Category: Books
Description: This book explores the return of the 'epic' in 21st century cinema. With the success of Gladiator, both critics and scholars enthusiastically announced the return of a genre which had lain dormant for 30 years. However, this return raises important new questions which remain unanswered. Why did the epic come back, and why did it fall out of fashion? Are these the same kinds of epics as the 1950s and 60s, or are there aesthetic differences? Can we treat Kingdom of Heaven, 300 and Thor indiscriminately as one genre? Are non Western histories like Hero and Mongol epics, too? Finally, what precisely do we mean when we talk about the return of the epic film, and why are they back? The Return of the Epic Film offers a fresh way of thinking about a body of films which has dominated our screens for a decade. With contributions from top scholars in the field, the collection adopts a range of interdisciplinary perspectives to explore the epic film in the 21st century. It is the first collection to address and challenge the return of the epic film in the twenty first century and our tendency to group these films together. The collection offers 12 essays from a range of disciplines as disparate as film, sociology, history and cultural studies, which challenge our core assumptions about the epic film. The Return of the Epic Film includes essays by internationally recognised names in film studies, history and adaptation, which each analyse the return of the epic from a number of angles. The volume brings together a variety of approaches which broaden the arsenal of traditional film studies, and lays the foundations for future research into epic films.

Magnify The Greek Epic Cycle And Its Ancient Reception
The Greek Epic Cycle And Its Ancient Reception

The Greek Epic Cycle And Its Ancient Reception


Category: Books
Description: The poems of the Epic Cycle are assumed to be the reworking of myths and narratives which had their roots in an oral tradition predating that of many of the myths and narratives which took their present form in the Iliad and the Odyssey. The remains of these texts allow us to investigate diachronic aspects of epic diction as well as the extent of variation within it on the part of individual authors - two of the most important questions in modern research on archaic epic. They also help to illuminate the early history of Greek mythology. Access to the poems, however, has been thwarted by their current fragmentary state. This volume provides the scholarly community and graduate students with a thorough critical foundation for reading and interpreting them.
