Being able to find joy in someone else’s joy is the secret of happiness. This is why there are so many happy horse lovers! If you keep, handle, and train horses according to their nature, and approach them with open eyes and ears as well as an open heart, they communicate very clearly that they feel happy. From the ten-year-old girl to the riding master, they all have something in common: the happiness they are given by these wonderful animals. In this thoughtful and touching book, professional horse photographer Christiane Slawik gathers her own thoughts, and those of her horse-loving friends, about the happiness they feel and share when they are with horses. Slawik’s gorgeous photography showcases the beauty, power, and sensitivity of horses, making this a moving tribute to their many gifts.

Learn how to sit, stay, and roll over with this fully illustrated, “delightful” guide to yoga starring man’s best friend (Shutterbug magazine). Inspired by a friend’s mastiff who would imitate his master’s morning yoga routine, photographer Dan Borris created Yoga Dogs, a full-color collection of forty-five different dogs and puppies doing human yoga poses. Don’t worry: No animals were harmed during the making of these images; their extreme flexibility is the result of clever digital trickery. The curious, humorous, and distinctly original pictures are paired with useful information about the poses, as well as some funny canine meditations. “A fresh and highly entertaining visual treat,” Yoga Dogs is perfect for any yogi of the two or four-legged variety (Shutterbug magazine).

This book discusses calendar or seasonal anomalies in worldwide equity markets as well as arbitrage and risk arbitrage. A complete update of US anomalies such as the January turn-of-the year, turn-of-the-month, January barometer, sell in May and go away, holidays, days of the week, options expiry and other effects is given concentrating on the futures markets where these anomalies can be easily applied.

Ziemba has focused on documenting, explaining, and trading on, calendar-based and other anomalies. This collection contains not only the original papers, but updates that examine whether the patterns persist.” Jay R Ritter Professor of Finance University of Florida “A question I am frequently asked is whether stock market regularities persist into the future. My answer is always the same. If you think an anomaly looks interesting, don't invest a penny until you have read what William T Ziemba has to say about it. He is the master of research on anomaly strategies.” Elroy Dimson Professor Emeritus London Business School “Research on return anomalies touches upon central topics in financial economics: Are markets informationally efficient? Are smart arbitrageurs able to correct mispricing swiftly, or at all? Are patterns of predictability in securities markets the consequences of risk premia, psychological bias, or mere ex post data-mining? To address these questions it is valuable to have an extensive inventory of careful studies of different kinds of markets, assets, countries, frequencies, institutional settings, and time periods. As such, this volume is a valuable source of ideas and stylized facts for the building of new theoretical insight.” David Hirshleifer Professor of Finance UC Irvine “Can you beat the market by using historical patterns in financial data? Here is the latest and most comprehensive treatment of these anomalies by a leading theorist and practitioner—what paid, what is working, and what might be profitable in the future.” Edward O Thorp Edward O Thorp & Associates Author of “Beat the Dealer” and “Beat the Market” “This lively retrospective takes readers on an informative anomalies tour, featuring both breadth and depth, across Japan, Europe, and the US in markets for equities, fixed income securities, land, and horse race betting.” Hersh Shefrin Professor of Finance Santa Clara University

Fly fishing is a noble sport whose avid practitioners learn the skills of finesse, observation and technique-and that would be great if it all stopped there. But fly fishing is more-oh so much more-than the streamside perfection of a mere handful of angling skills. The broader cirriculum also teaches us: Frustration ("When we see trout feeding regardless of our fly...the resentment is almost like the anger of a madman." -Harold Russell); Jealousy ("Flyfishing is like sex, everyone thinks there is more than there is, and that everyone else is getting more than their share." -Henry Kanemotto); Lying ("The question is not whether successful fishermen believe in God, but vice versa." -Don Roberts); and Obstinance ("If I'm not going to catch anything, then I'd rather not catch anything on flies." - Bob Lawless). What Fly Fishing Teaches Us relates these lessons and many more in pithy words from angling literature and dazzling Denver Bryan photographs. Fly anglers who have found utter enjoyment and headache-inducing frustration will recognize themselves in this delightful book.

'There is no doubt that Moss’s book, with its charming cover and quaint illustrations, will make it into many a stocking this year' The Times No other bird is quite so ever-present and familiar, so embedded in our culture, as the robin. With more than six million breeding pairs, the robin is second only to the wren as Britain’s most common bird. It seems to live its life alongside us, in every month and season of the year. But how much do we really know about this bird? In The Robin Stephen Moss records a year of observing the robin both close to home and in the field to shed light on the hidden life of this apparently familiar bird. We follow its lifecycle from the time it enters the world as an egg, through its time as a nestling and juvenile, to the adult bird; via courtship, song, breeding, feeding, migration – and ultimately, death. At the same time we trace the robin's relationship with us: how did this particular bird – one of more than 300 species in its huge and diverse family – find its way so deeply and permanently into our nation’s heart and its social and cultural history? It’s a story that tells us as much about ourselves as it does about the robin itself.

A New York Times bestseller? Oh, you know the dogs weren't going to let the cats get away with that! This canine companion to I Could Pee on This, the beloved volume of poems by cats, I Could Chew on This will have dog lovers laughing out loud.

Accompanied throughout by portraits of the canine poets in all their magnificence, I Could Chew on This is a work of unbridled enthusiasm, insatiable appetite, and, yes, creative genius. Plus, this is a fixed-format version of the book, which looks nearly identical to the print version.

A New York Times bestseller with an "engaging narrative and array of detail” (The Wall Street Journal), the “intimate and sweeping” (Raleigh News & Observer) untold, true story behind the Biltmore Estate—the largest, grandest private residence in North America, which has seen more than 120 years of history pass by its front door. The story of Biltmore spans World Wars, the Jazz Age, the Depression, and generations of the famous Vanderbilt family, and features a captivating cast of real-life characters including F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe, Teddy Roosevelt, John Singer Sargent, James Whistler, Henry James, and Edith Wharton. Orphaned at a young age, Edith Stuyvesant Dresser claimed lineage from one of New York’s best known families. She grew up in Newport and Paris, and her engagement and marriage to George Vanderbilt was one of the most watched events of Gilded Age society. But none of this prepared her to be mistress of Biltmore House. Before their marriage, the wealthy and bookish Vanderbilt had dedicated his life to creating a spectacular European-style estate on 125,000 acres of North Carolina wilderness. He summoned the famous landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted to tame the grounds, collaborated with celebrated architect Richard Morris Hunt to build a 175,000-square-foot chateau, filled it with priceless art and antiques, and erected a charming village beyond the gates. Newlywed Edith was now mistress of an estate nearly three times the size of Washington, DC and benefactress of the village and surrounding rural area. When fortunes shifted and changing times threatened her family, her home, and her community, it was up to Edith to save Biltmore—and secure the future of the region and her husband’s legacy. This is the fascinating, “soaring and gorgeous” (Karen Abbott) story of how the largest house in America flourished, faltered, and ultimately endured to this day.
