1455502677 : I'm Here To Win: A World Champion's Advice for Peak Performance
ISBN: 1455502677

 
Author: Chris McCormack

The Ironman World Championship is one of the most grueling tests of mental and physical endurance and athleticism in the world. Its competitors have 17 hours to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run a full marathon, 26.2 miles. Chris McCormack has dedicated his life to training for-and winning– this race, a feat he has accomplished twice, along with winning the Australian Ironman five years in a row and coming in first at both the Triathlon World Championships and the International Triathlon Union World Cup.

But his journey to athletic greatness is more than one of just physical endurance. I’M HERE TO WIN is McCormack’s account of everything it takes-mind, body and spirit — to become a champion.

In 2010, McCormack silenced his critics when he won the Hawaiian Ironman Championship at 37. He ran the race not just for himself, but for his late mother and the charity he founded in her honor to fight breast cancer. He now had a purpose, a passion, and something to drive him beyond himself.

While Macca gives much credit to his physical performance, he believes his success comes from what he does before and after the race as much as during. In I’M HERE TO WIN he will share some of his most important training tips and Macca-isms, short bits of wisdom such as: Know yourself, listen to your body and mind, do the right thing today and trust the results without worrying about tomorrow.

0307716899 : Getting More: How to Negotiate to Achieve Your Goals in the Real World
ISBN: 0307716899

 
Author: Stuart Diamond

Negotiation is part of every human encounter, and most of us do it badly. Whether dealing with family, a business or diplomacy, people often fail to meet their goals in every country and context. They focus on power and “win-win” instead of relationships and perceptions. They don’t find enough things to trade. They think others should be rational when they should be dealing with emotions. They get distracted from their goals.
 
In this revolutionary book, leading negotiation practitioner and professor Stuart Diamond draws on the research and practice of 30,000 people he has taught and advised in 45 countries over two decades to outline specific, practical and better ways to deal with others. Read the rest of this entry »

Author Tip: Using Ultra-Wide Angle Lenses

Ultra-wide angle lenses are a great way to add an interesting effect to your images. Ultra-wide lenses bend and distort your images, which allows you to portray your subjects in a way that the human eye can’t see. This gives your photos an out of the ordinary look that attracts attention from even the most casual observer.

Getting up close to your subject distorts the perspective causing close-up areas to look huge and areas behind to look inordinately small. This is usually not recommended for portraits of people, but can be used for comedic effect and works especially well for pets.

Using an ultra-wide lens close-up pulls the viewer right into the scene and creates the illusion of extreme depth, which can give your photos an almost 3 -D feeling.

Stepping back from the subject and photographing from further away stretches out the apparent distance between the camera and the subject causing short spans to look immense. Use this technique to add a sense of space and depth to your photos.

Since ultra-wide lenses fit so much of the scene into your photograph you really need to pay attention to your composition. Keep a close eye on the foreground and edges of the frame. An empty foreground and a small subject can make your image boring. Get up close and fill the foreground with your subject, but try to exclude distracting elements from the edges of the frame.

When shooting from a distance, your subject is sure to be small. Use the foreground to include leading lines that draw attention to the subject or to create a near-far dynamic that conveys the apparent distance between the subject and the camera.

Example: Motocross Rider
Example: Boston Terrier
Example: Skateboarder
