    For a long time already, vodka has been more than just Russia and Poland's national drink. From Asia and Great-Britain to the United States: this fire water has conquered the world and is now the most sold spirit internationally. The term 'fire water' refers to its most distinguishable quality: a neutral spirit, without smell and with a pure taste. It turned vodka also into a barkeeper's best friend and the basis of every Cosmopolitan, Moscow Mule or Bloody Mary.

    Empower success in disruptive times.
    Set your priorities.
    Create resilience, embrace change.
    Accept your fear.
    Use uncertainty to reinvent yourself.
    Own your actions.
    Discover the Why Power.
    Give up control.
    Stop wishing, start doing Shift towards a mindset without limits.

    Experienced base jumpers and other extreme athletes share a guiding principle: selfawareness. The way you think and the choices you make determine who you are and who you become. If you know yourself you are decisive, you dare to take risks, you follow your own path and you are open to change. In this way, your fear can motivate you to push your limits. This principle also applies to professionals who strive for high performance from themselves and from their teams. If you want a positive drive behind your performance, and you really want to reach your next level, you must get to know yourself.

    Dare to Jump helps you overcome your fear and offers three power skills in becoming the best version of yourself: a limitless mindset, a laser focus and creating trust. It teaches you why focus is the new IQ, how you can train yourself to get into a state of flow, and how to build trust without limits within your team.


  • les deux nouvelles de jack london présentées ici témoignent une fois encore, et avec une écriture superbe, de ses désillusions dans sa quête du paradis perdu.
    the chinago (le chinois) : ah cho, l'ouvrier chinois condamné pour un meurtre qu'il n'a pas commis, ne peut croire qu'il sera exécuté. mais la brutalité du système colonial ne lui laissera aucune chance. jack london relate ce fait divers authentique en nous faisant percevoir l'indifférence des puissants et la vanité de tout espoir pour les humbles. the house of mapuhi (la maison de mapuhi) : la vie dans les îles du sud, si elle peut être idyllique, recèle quelques dangers mortels.
    les plongeurs de perles s'exposent à des risques inouïs, mais quand ils trouvent la perle, comme ce fut le cas de mapuhi, ils peuvent espérer en tirer un grand profit. les magouilles des intermédiaires réduiront les espoirs de mapuhi quasiment à néant. toutefois, un cyclone énorme, cet autre danger des îles, rétablira à son avantage une situation désespérée. (la série bilingue propose : une traduction fidèle et intégrale, accompagnée de nombreuses notes ; une méthode originale de perfectionnement par un contact direct avec les ouvres d'auteurs étrangers.

  • Cet ouvrage présente les 143 plus belles pierres de la collection de minéraux que Roger Caillois a léguée au Muséum national d'histoire naturelle de Paris, ainsi que la réédition des célèbres textes Pierres, L'Écriture des pierres et Agates paradoxales. Homme de lettres et compagnon du mouvement surréaliste, Roger Caillois s'intéresse très tôt au monde minéral dont les formes évoquent pour lui des figures de l'imaginaire. Dès les années 1950, il commence à collectionner des minéraux du monde entier, des « pierres curieuses, qui attirent l'attention par quelque anomalie de leur forme ou par quelque bizarrerie significative de dessin ou de couleur ». Toutes possèdent « une ressemblance inattendue, improbable et pourtant naturelle, qui provoque la fascination ». Agates, pyrites, quartz, jaspe... elles sont autant de fragments de l'univers, d'un monde où rêve et poésie dessinent des analogies avec le monde végétal et animal mais aussi avec celui des hommes.

    This platinum tome is the most comprehensive visual history of surfing to-date, marking a major cultural event as much as a publication. Following three and a half years of meticulous research, it brings together more than 900 images to chart the evolution of surfing as a sport, a lifestyle, and a philosophy.

Utilizing institutions, collections, and photographic archives from around the world, and with accompanying essays by the world's top surf journalists, it celebrates the sport on and off the water, as a community of 20 million practitionersand countless more devotees, and as a leading influence on fashion, film, art, and music.

    An unrivaled tribute to the breadth, complexity, and richness of surfing, this book is a must-have for any serious player on the surfing scene and anybody who aspires to the surfing lifestyle. As one surfing scribe has declared «There has never been a book like this, and there will never be another one again.»
