            He's been hired and fired from every major wrestling company. He's wrestled all over the United States, in Mexico, and Asia. He's held multiple tag team belts and heavyweight championships. He's been a top guy and a jobber. He's been a hero, a villain, and a mentor to countless y...oung wrestlers of the last two generations. He pinned legends. He defeated cancer. And yes, he wrestled three different bears. Few wrestlers have logged as many miles as Tracy Smothers, and even fewer have made the impact he has on today's young stars. Now for the first time, Tracy reveals how a promising young athlete Springfield, Tennessee, who once aspired to be a high school football coach found himself at the center of a fan riot in Mexico City and a bar fight in Malaysia. He talks about the last days of the territories, the rise of the Wild Eyed Southern Boys and the Young Pistols, his star turn in Smoky Mountain, his jobbing days in WWF, life-changing concussions, the FBI in ECW, and dance contests in the indies. You'll hear harrowing tales about bounty hunting, delivering pizzas, and yes... going toe to toe with the legendary Ginger the Wrestling Bear. Tracy Smothers doesn't care if you love him. He doesn't care if you think he sucks. He doesn't even really care if you read his book. There's only one thing you need to know right now. If you don't buy this book, EVERYBODY DIES!

            Questo libro parla della vita di Alex Stecchezzini, prima della nascita di sua figlia Mailee. Ma chi e Alex? Per spiegarlo, bisogna prima capire cosa si intende fare qualcosa di particolare o rischioso. Per la maggior parte delle persone comuni, l'idea di una giornata vissuta all...'insegna del rischio potrebbe consistere, prima di uscire di casa, nel non usare lo stick deodorante per le ascelle. Ma per Alex, invece, fare qualcosa di rischioso significava salire sulla cima di un palazzo alto cento metri eludendo la sorveglianza, buttarsi giu in strada con un paracadute, fuggire col favore delle tenebre e raggiungere, braccato dalle forze dell'ordine, un rifugio sicuro dal quale progettare la prossima prodezza, da attuare di li a breve. Alex e stato, infatti, uno dei piu promettenti arrampicatori e Base Jumper italiani.E praticamente nato con la voglia di cercare emozioni forti. Il suo avvicinamento a questo sport estremo e cominciato in seguito ad una serie di esperienze nell'arrampicata sportiva, disciplina nella quale Alex ha raggiunto ottimi risultati, partecipando ad innumerevoli competizioni, anche internazionali. A soli 15 anni di eta Alex e gia in grado di arrampicare su pareti di alta difficolta, e la cosa ancor piu incredibile e che comincia a dedicarsi anche alla scalata completamente in solitaria.Proprio nell'intraprendere queste avventure estreme, nasce e si sviluppa in lui l'idea di dedicarsi a qualcosa di ancor piu radicale. Alex, nel libro, racconta del primo lancio nel vuoto: da li ho cominciato per davvero . In questa disciplina, Stecchezzini, che detiene alcuni record ancora mai ripetuti, prima ancora di compiere trent'anni si e lanciato da innumerevoli punti fissi classificati come impossibili e off limits . Molti di questi salti non si possono citare. Molte cose non potrebbero essere descritte in modo concreto e meticoloso. Siamo in un limbo incerto, che va tra il legale, il tollerabile e il punibile. Ma, in questa biografia si sbottona, scrivendo n

            Memoir of a Hockey Nobody is the unlikely true story of an average Canadian kid who grew up playing street hockey. Although he didn't learn how to skate until his late teens, he took a shot at entering the world of professional ice hockey with, shall we say, haphazard results. Th...is is an against all odds tale of one man's journey from Vancouver, to all over Western Canada, California, The Yukon, and Alaska. Seemingly blocked at every turn, from managers who believed that someone who came from such humble beginnings couldn't be any good, to coaches who would rather see big names with bigger reputations. It's a story of tragedy, triumph and determination. A roller coaster ride with hilarious anecdotes of all the characters he met along the way. This is a tale for those who dare to live their dream!

            Everest, la premiere ascension: Recit authentique (EPUB ebook)

            By Tuckey, Harriet

            Ce recit publie pour le 60eme anniversaire de la conquete de l'Everest est un evenement majeur pour l'histoire de l'himalayisme car il devoile une version tres differente de celle racontee jusqu'alors : le role majeur de Griffith Pugh, le physiologiste qui participa a l'expeditio...n de 1953. Sans ses recherches, l'ascension de l'Everest n'aurait jamais pu etre realisee ainsi que la plupart des sommets de plus de 8000 m. A PROPOS DE L'AUTEURE Harriet Tuckey : L'auteure est la fille de Griffith Pugh, le physiologiste qui participa a l'expedition de 1953. Apres 9 annees de recherche, elle a reussi a retablir a la fois le role unique qu'il eut dans la course a l'Everest et aux geants de l'Himalaya, mais aussi son impact sur la communaute scientifique par les recherches qu'il effectua et dirigea, en particulier lors de la plus grande expedition scientifique effectuee en Himalaya (1961 - l'expedition de la hutte d'argent) qui fut a la base de la creation d'une nouvelle specialite medicale, la medecine de l'altitude.
