But love alone does not always guarantee satisfaction.

Explanation of the Book:

The Paras are Britain's elite strike force. Wearing their distinctive red beret, these toughened soldiers have the kind of winning attitude that is acquired only by hard physical training. As company commander, and the youngest ever major in the British Army since World War II, McGrath oversaw the rigorous selection program for any army personnel who wished to join this elite regiment. The selection course includes a 10 mile route march carrying a 35 pound backpack plus water and a weapon over rocky terrain, an aerial confidence course, and a team event where an 8-person team carry a 135 pound log for a 2 mile sprint race. In his new book, McGrath has redesigned the explosive fitness techniques of the Paras so that they can be used at home or at the gym. In Phase One, 'The Spartan,' a ten week no frills circuits program, all you will need is a pair of sneakers--and lots of gumption. Phase Two, 'The Emperor,' incorporates weight training, core stability exercises and cardio equipment. Self-tests at the end of each phase let you know if you're fit enough to be a Para. McGrath's diet plan together with his weight training, mental attunement, and cardio programs offer an intermediate to advanced fitness program that will give you Para confidence and the ability to tackle McGrath's Five Para Challenges, including a 10-mile run carrying a 35 lb backpack, a 16-mile hike carrying a 45 lb backpack in under 4 hours, and an assault course through icy waters and hilly, muddy terrain. From Harvey Walden to Mark de Lisle, military trainers are at the cutting edge of today's fitness revolution and Sam McGrath is set to take the world by storm.

Explanation of the Book:

A dark, ultra-contemporary and relentlessly paced debut thriller about a London society woman trying to put her secret criminal past behind her--and the hit man who comes to her with an impossible job she can't refuse. Charlotte Alton is an elegant socialite. But behind the locked doors of her sleek, high-security apartment in London's Docklands, she becomes Karla. Karla's business is information. Specifically, making it disappear. She's the unseen figure who, for a commanding price, will cover a criminal's tracks. A perfectionist, she's only made one slip in her career: several years ago she revealed her face to a man named Simon Johanssen, an ex-special forces sniper turned killer-for-hire. After a mob hit went horrifically wrong, Johanssen needed to disappear, and Karla helped him. He became a regular client, and then one day, she stepped out of the shadows for reasons unclear to even herself. Now, after a long absence, Johanssen has resurfaced with a job, and he needs Karla's help again. The job is to take out an inmate--a woman--inside an experimental prison colony. But there's no record the target ever existed. That's not the only problem: the criminal boss from whom Johanssen has been hiding is incarcerated there. That doesn't stop him. It's Karla's job to get him out alive, and to do that she must uncover the truth. Who is this woman? Who wants her dead? Is the job a trap for Johanssen or for her? But every door she opens is a false one, and she's getting desperate to protect a man--a killer--to whom she's inexplicably drawn. Written in stylish, sophisticated prose, The Distance is a tense and satisfying debut in which every character, both criminal and law-abiding, wears 2 faces, and everyone is playing a double game.

Explanation of the Book:

Immersive, engrossing report on the European refugee crisis A mother puts her children into a refrigerator truck and asks, “What else could I do?” A runaway teenager comes of age on the streets, sleeping in abandoned buildings. A student leaves his war-ravaged country behind because he doesn’t want to kill. Everyone among the thousands of people who come to Europe in search of asylum each year possesses a unique story. But those stories don’t end as they cross into the West. In Lights in the Distance, acclaimed journalist Daniel Trilling draws on years of reporting to build a portrait of the refugee crisis as seen through the eyes of the people who experienced it firsthand. As the European Union has grown, so has a tangled and often violent system designed to filter out unwanted migrants. Visiting camps and hostels, sneaking into detention centers, and delving into his own family’s history of displacement, Trilling weaves together the stories of people he met and followed from country to country. In doing so, he shows that the terms commonly used to define them—“refugee” or “economic migrant,” “legal” or “illegal,” “deserving” or “undeserving”—fall woefully short of capturing the complex realities. The founding story of the EU is that it exists to ensure the horrors of the twentieth century are never repeated. Now, as it comes to terms with the worst refugee crisis since the Second World War, its declared values of freedom, tolerance and respect for human rights are being put to the test. Lights in the Distance is a uniquely powerful and illuminating exploration of the nature and human dimensions of the crisis.

Explanation of the Book:

Pulitzer Prize Finalist: “Something like Huckleberry Finn written by Cormac McCarthy: an adventure story as well as a meditation on the meaning of home.”—The Times Winner of the William Saroyan International Prize for Writing A Publishers Weekly Top Ten Book of the Year Finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction A young Swedish immigrant finds himself penniless and alone in California. The boy travels East in search of his brother, from whom he was separated in the crowds and chaos during their journey across the sea. Moving on foot against the great current of emigrants pushing West, he is driven back again and again, meeting naturalists, criminals, religious fanatics, swindlers, Indians, and lawmen—and his exploits turn him into a legend. Just as its hero pushes against the tide, this widely acclaimed novel defies genre conventions—and “upends the romance and mythology of America’s Western experience and rugged individualism” (Star Tribune). “Suspenseful…a memorable immigration narrative, and a canny reinvention of the old-school western.”—Publishers Weekly “Exquisite: assured, moving, and masterful, as profound and precise an evocation of loneliness as any book I’ve ever read.” —Lauren Groff, National Book Award-nominated author of Florida and Fates and Furies
