The Edison Gene: ADHD and the Gift of the Hunter Child
The Edison Gene
ADHD and the Gift of the Hunter Child
Paperback      ISBN: 1594770492
Explores how the ADHD gene is and has been critical to humanity's development • Shows how artists, inventors, and innovators carry the gene necessary for the future survival of humanity • Explains why children with the Edison gene are so often mislabeled in public schools as having a disorder • 10,000 sold in hardcover since August 2003 Thomas Edison was expelled from school for behavior that today would label him as having Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), but his mother understood how to salvage his self-esteem and prepare him for a lifetime of success. In The Edison Gene Thom Hartmann shows that the creativity, impulsiveness, and distractibility that are characteristic of ADHD are not signs of a disorder at all, but instead are components of a highly adaptive skill set utilized by our hunting and gathering ancestors. These characteristics have been critical to the survival and development of our modern civilization and will be vital as humanity faces new challenges in the future." Hartmann, creator of the "hunter versus farmer" theory of ADHD, examines the latest discoveries confirming the existence of an ADHD gene and the global catastrophe 40,000 years ago that triggered its development. Citing examples of significant innovators in our modern era, he argues that the children who possess the "Edison gene" have neurology that is wired to give them brilliant success as innovators, inventors, explorers, and entrepreneurs. He offers concrete strategies for helping Edison-gene children reach their full potential and shows that rather than being "problems," such children are a vital gift to our society and the world.

Triathlete's Edge
Paperback      ISBN: 0736046534
Triathlon coaching pioneer Marc Evans has trained pros and age-group triathletes for over 20 years, and he knows what it takes to be successful. His system is divided into phases that can be customized to fit various training seasons and racing objectives. The base preparation phase sets training goals and develops endurance, strength, flexibility, and technique. Base transition adds new workouts, introduces transitions, and increases the volume and intensity of your training. The third phase, race preparation, includes specific swim, bike, and run workouts tailored to your fitness level that will condition your body to put it all together in the approaching competition. The final phase, peak transition, prepares you physiologically and psychologically in a taper that will sharpen your body to peak on race day. Triathlete's Edge contains much more than training programs. Complete assessment tools allow you to evaluate mobility, posture, gait, strength, and flexibility to make improvements through event-specific exercise drills. Swim instruction covers stroke improvement and hand entry techniques and offers tips on mass starts and exits. You'll improve your position on the bike, perfect your posture, and study cadence and gearing on the bike. The running section will sharpen your efficiency with drills for arm movement, foot strike, and running stride. Evans reveals the professional training secrets that have defined him as the triathlon training authority. Mark Allen, Karen Smyers, Mike Pigg, and Sue Latshaw are just a few of the legendary triathletes who have benefited from Evans' mentoring.
