Book: Panhandlers
Summary: 

The Panhandle of Florida is a unique part of the Southeast, not quite Florida and not quite Alabama. State parks, rivers and white sand beaches lure millions to visit on vacation. Yet, there is a side that tourists often don’t experience, but may have read about in the newspapers: dogfighting, crystal meth, poverty, murder. Panhandlers tells those stories.

Book: Can Muscles Talk? The Brain Says Yes!
Summary: 

  1. Learning in-depth about specific movement patterns in various sports so that you can train them in an environment most conducive to results – just like the real game situation itself.
  2. Posture and stretching are examined to give kids ergonomic cues that will help them avoid injury at home, school, play, or organized sports settings.
  3. The different types of muscle contraction are explained in a manner that kids can understand so that when they use weightlifting techniques later in life, they can have good technique and understand the internal processes of strength acquisition.
  4. One of the main goals is to have kids avoid dangerous Olympic-style lifting or the use of momentum-based training for injury prevention.
