Under Heaven is a novel of heroes, assassins, concubines and emperors set against a majestic and unforgiving landscape. For two years Shen Tai has mourned his father, living like a hermit beyond the borders of the Kitan Empire, by a mountain lake where terrible battles have long been fought between the Kitai and the neighbouring Tagurans, including one for which his father - a great general - was honoured. But Tai's father never forgot the brutal slaughter involved. The bones of 100,000 soldiers still lie unburied by the lake and their wailing ghosts at night strike terror in the living, leaving the lake and meadow abandoned in its ring of mountains. To honour and redress his father's sorrow, Tai has journeyed west to the lake and has laboured, alone, to bury the dead of both empires. His supplies are replenished by his own people from the nearest fort, and also - since peace has been bought with the bartering of an imperial princess - by the Tagurans, for his solitary honouring of their dead. The Tagurans soldiers one day bring an unexpected letter. It is from the bartered Kitan Princess Cheng-wan, and it contains a poisoned chalice: she has gifted Tai with two hundred and fifty Sardian horses, to reward him for his courage. The Sardians are legendary steeds from the far west, famed, highly-prized, long-coveted by the Kitans.

This inspirational memoir by Craig Robinson pays tribute to his parents, his coaches, and the lessons his experiences have taught him. Foreword by Marian Robinson When he stepped into history's spotlight at the National Democratic Convention, Craig Robinson recalls that nothing could have been more gratifying than introducing his sister, Michelle Obama, to millions of Americans. Within minutes, he won the hearts of the nation by sharing highlights of growing up in the modest Robinson household, where he and his sister were raised by devoted parents who taught them the values of education, and hard work, and the importance of reaching far beyond what even seemed possible. Those lessons of character were fundamental in shaping Craig Robinson's own remarkable journey: from his days playing street basketball on Chicago's Southside while excelling academically, to admission at Princeton University, where he was later named Ivy League Player of the Year, twice. After playing professionally in Europe, Robinson made an about-face, entering the competitive field of finance. With his MBA from the University of Chicago, his meteoric rise landed him a partnership in a promising new venture. But another dream beckoned, and Craig made the unusual decision to forgo the trappings of money and status in the business world in order to become a basketball coach. He soon helped transform three struggling teams-as an assistant coach at Northwestern, then as head coach at Brown, and now at Oregon State University. In his first season at OSU, he navigated what was declared to be one of the nation's best single season turnarounds. In A Game of Character, Robinson takes readers behind the scenes to meet his most important influences in his understanding of the winning traits that are part of his playbook for success. Central to his story are his parents, Marian and Fraser, two indefatigable individuals who showed their children how to believe in themselves and live their lives with conviction through love, discipline, and respect. With insights into this exemplary family, we relive memories of how Marian sacrificed a career to be a full-time mom, how Fraser got up and went to work every day while confronting the challenges of multiple sclerosis, and how Craig and Michelle strengthened their bond as they journeyed out of the Southside to Princeton University and, eventually, the national stage. Heartwarming, inspiring, and even transformational, A Game of Character comes just at the right time in an era of change, reminding readers of the opportunity to work together and embrace the character of our nation, to make a difference in the lives of others, and to pave the way for the next generation. .

Smart, sneaky, and sustainable cheating tips from one of New York's top nutritionists. Award-winning nutritionist, Glamourmagazine columnist and stylish New York City chick, Marissa Lippert understands how hard it is to stick to a plan and eat a healthy diet when you're a girl-on-the go. And she knows that if you aren't allowed to cheat, you won't want to stick to any type of plan. Here, finally, is the foolproof program for eating, cheating, and losing weight permanently. You heard it from your mother many times, "Cheaters never win. " And she was right. But in this case, cheaters always win, because (winning means losing), especially if they listen to hot New York City nutritionist Marissa Lippert. Let her teach you the art of cheating and you'll be the biggest loser ever-up to twenty pounds in eight weeks. And that's just the beginning of the good news. You'll be the leanest, fittest, healthiest and happiest you've ever been on a diet because Lippert believes that life without guilty pleasures-including drinks (yes, alcohol) and desserts-just isn't worth living. There are two kinds of cheats: the ones you do on purpose and, more frequently, the ones that catch you off guard. Whether you've binged on sweets, fatty foods or booze, Marissa has the tools to help you spring into action and maximize cheating momentum. You'll feel better and healthier if you follow her plan and you won't ruin the progress you'll make on The Cheater's Diet. Getting a grip on your schedule is the first step to cheating-planning trips to the gym, stocking up on staples at the grocery store, deciding when to cook, and knowing when and how you'll likely cheat during the week. Will it be at your office happy hour on Wednesday or an indulgent dinner date on Thursday? Girl's night out on Saturday? Take your best shot-if the dinner date is at an incredible restaurant you've been dying to try, play smart with lighter meals earlier in the week and hold out for the good stuff. Lippert shows readers, in each of the eight weeks, how to shop, how to cook and how to find the best of everything within your budget. The upshot is that eating the most delicious food whether you're cheating or not, whether you're eating in or out, is the best way to stay satisfied and control your portions. You'll want to save the cheats for something that's worth it-not junk food from the snack machine, but the best red velvet cupcake you've ever had. Not house wine, but the best Pinot Noir you'll ever taste. The better the quality the more you'll savor it, and the less you'll eat--and that's true of healthy food too. Buy a great bottle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil and suddenly salads won't be a punishment for a night of cheating. They'll feel like your naughty days. Eight weeks, up to twenty pounds, and enjoying every minute of it. How can you beat that?
