This is a summary of Joshua Foer's Moonwalking with Einstein The Art and Science of Remembering Everything. Foer's unlikely journey from chronically forgetful science journalist to US Memory Champion frames a revelatory exploration of the vast, hidden impact of memory on every aspect of our lives. On average, people squander 40 days annually compensating for things they've forgotten. Joshua Foer used to be one of those people. But after a year of memory training, he found himself in the finals of the US Memory Championship. Even more important, Foer found a vital truth we too often forget: In every way that matters, we are the sum of our memories. Moonwalking with Einstein draws on cutting-edge research, a surprising cultural history of memory, and venerable tricks of the mentalist's trade to transform our understanding of human remembering. Under the tutelage of top "mental athletes", he learns ancient techniques once employed by Cicero to memorize his speeches and by medieval scholars to memorize entire books. Using methods that have been largely forgotten, Foer discovers that we can all dramatically improve our memories. Immersing himself obsessively in a quirky subculture of competitive memorizers, Foer learns to apply techniques that call on imagination as much as determination - showing that memorization can be anything but rote. From the PAO system, which converts numbers into lurid images, to the memory palace, in which memories are stored in the rooms of imaginary structures, Foer's experience shows that the World Memory Championships are less a test of memory than of perseverance and creativity. Foer takes his inquiry well beyond the arena of mental athletes - across the country and deep into his own mind. In San Diego, he meets an affable old man with one of the most severe case of amnesia on record, where he learns that memory is at once more elusive and more reliable than we might think. In Salt Lake City, he swaps secrets wi 1. Language: English. Narrator: David N. Baker. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/068927/bk_acx0_068927_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Davidson Ezinwa (born 22 November 1971) is a former sprinter from Nigeria. He won a silver medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics as well as a silver medal at the 1997 World Championships, both in 4 x 100 metres relay. He also won a 60 metres silver medal at the 1997 World Indoor Championships. In 100 metres his personal best time is 9.94 seconds, although he has recorded 9.91 s, albeit with a doubtful wind reading of -2.3 m/s which is an unlikely weather condition for records. In any case his result ranks him second in Nigeria, behind Olusoji Fasuba, and third in Africa, behind Fasuba and Frankie Fredericks. His personal best 200 metres time is 20.30 seconds, from 1990.

King of the Cowboys

The most famous rodeo champion of all time tells his amazing true story -- and opens a fascinating window into the world of the professional cowboy. Ty Murray was born to be a rodeo star -- in fact, his first words were 'I'm a bull rider.' Before he was even out of diapers, he was climbing atop his mother's Singer sewing machine case, which just so happened to be the perfect mechanical bull for a 13-month-old. Before long, Ty was winning peewee events by the hatful, and his special talent was obvious...obvious even to a man called Larry Mahan. At the time the greatest living rodeo legend, six-time champion Mahan invited a teenaged Ty Murray to spend a summer on his ranch learning not just rodeoing but also some life lessons. Those lessons prepared Ty for a career that eventually surpassed even Mahan's own -- Ty's seven All-Around Championships. In King of the Cowboys, Ty Murray invites us into the daredevil world of rodeo and the life of the cowboy. Along the way, he details a life spent constantly on the road, heading to the next event; the tragic death of his friend and fellow rodeo star Lane Frost; and the years of debilitating injuries that led some to say Ty Murray was finished. He wasn't. In fact, Ty Murray has brought the world of rodeo into the twenty-first century, through his unparalleled achievements in the ring, through advancing the case for the sport as a television color-commentator, and through the Professional Bull Riders, an organization he helped to build. In the end, though, Ty Murray is first and foremost a cowboy, and now that he's retired from competition, he takes this chance to reflect on his remarkable life and career. In King of the Cowboys, Ty Murray opens up his world as never before.

Must Have. Nice to Have

Written by major sports event organizer Filippo Bazzanella and sports communications/operations manager Egon Theiner, 'Must Have, Nice to Have!' examines how major sports events are organized and gives an in-depth look into the synergies between sports, media, politics and business. It documents the excesses, wasted public investments, abandoned stadiums and 'white elephant' projects that have been made in the name of sporting excellence in recent years, and that have caused increasing controversy. In addition, it discusses the often negative public attitudes toward event bidding and staging currently prevalent in many parts of the globe, and offers a practical response to the measures announced by the International Olympic Committee in its 40-step reform program Agenda 2020 at the end of 2014. Based on interviews, case studies and examples of good practice, the book provides pragmatic, constructive advice and examples of organizational systems that could be useful to future organizers adopting a structured and 'human-scale' approach that trims budgets, refocuses events back on sports and that reflects the needs and views of all the different stakeholders involved. Including contributions by leading sports experts ranging from FISU World University Championships President Claude Louis Gallien, International Ski Federation President Gian Franco Kasper, International Skating Union President Ottavio Cinquanta, Olympic Games Executive Director Christophe Dubi, former World Ski super-star Alberto Tomba, World Federation of Sporting Goods Industry President Frank Dassler to Italian Football Federation General Director Michele Uva, this book goes beyond the present status quo, and makes proposals for future, possible solutions for dilemmas faced by event organizers, sports associations, governments and public bodies today.
