Explanation of the Book:

Learning how to swim can be a frustrating experience sometimes, especially for an adult. Kick with your legs, pull with your arms, breathe in, and breathe out and do it all at the right time. Before you know it you’ve got a hundred and one things to think about and do all at the same time or in the right sequence. The Swimming Strokes Book is designed to break each stroke down into its component parts, those parts being body position, legs, arms, breathing and timing and coordination. An exercise or series of exercises are then assigned to that part along with relevant teaching points and technique tips, to help focus only on that stroke part. Although it is not the same as having a swimming teacher with you to correct you, this book perfectly compliments lessons or helps to enhance your practice time in the pool. The 82 exercises form reference sections for each swimming stroke, complete with technique tips, teaching points and common mistakes for each individual exercise. Clear, concise and easy-to-follow.

Explanation of the Book:

Certainly a healthy fear of the water is a good thing. If the water is too cold or too much current it can be dangerous. But, if you know how to float, tread water and swim sidestroke then you do not have to be afraid of drowning as long as you avoid dangerous situations. This book stems from my love of the water and wanting to help more people overcome their fear of the water and gain proficiency in swimming so they are safe. I felt that breaking down the process into many small steps and explaining each step in great detail would help people gain knowledge and overcome their fear of the water giving them confidence to try each small step and learn to swim. Conventional swim lessons take way too much time and do not help people overcome their fear of the water. If you have ever taken swim lessons and failed because of your fear of the water then this book is for you. This book will take you through a progressive method that develops the skills you need so you can take those first steps to overcoming your fear and learn to enjoy the water. The steps include: Learning to breathe off the top of your lungs; Holding your breath; Immersing the back of your head and your face; Floating with your lungs full and body relaxed; Floating while sculling; Treading water; Sidestroke, Breast stroke and finally Swimming under water and Snorkeling.Depending on your level of fear, you may take more or less time practicing these methods and learning how to swim. At some point you will need to stand up to your fear and take a scary step like putting your face into the water. Practicing the steps in this book will familiarize you with the risks and make that step less scary. It will still be scary but if you understand your body's reaction to fear and trust in your abilities then you will succeed in taking those first scary steps. We will learn how to breathe off the top of your lungs keeping your lungs filled with as much air as possible which maximizes your ability to float. Then we will learn how to breathe deeply and hold our breath for a long period of time using relaxation techniques while sitting in a chair. We will start head and face immersion techniques in the sink and the bathtub while practicing our relaxation techniques. Only then will we proceed to the shallow end of a pool and learn how to float several different ways on our stomach and on our back while learning to relax. Finally we will learn how to float on our back in deeper water keeping our lungs full of air so that our chest and face stay above the water letting our heavy legs dangle down to the bottom of the pool. This is where you will finally learn why your fear of the water and tensing up has made it so difficult for you to learn how to swim. Once we have overcome our fear of putting our face and head in the water and learning how to float while relaxed, we will learn how to scull then tread water. Learning how to alternate between floating, floating while sculling and treading water should be enough to give you the confidence you need finally realize you will not drown if you fall into deep water. Only then will we be ready for the next step, learning how to swim the sidestroke.The sidestroke is the perfect stroke for new swimmers that are afraid of the water. For one, you can keep your head out of the water. For another reason, it capitalizes on your fear of the water and the harder you kick the more your head stays out of the water!

Explanation of the Book:

“Hysterically droll, touching, elegant, and wise—a coming-of-age story from someone who possibly came of age before her parents” (Patricia Marx, New Yorker writer and bestselling author), Trying to Float is a seventeen-year-old’s darkly funny, warmhearted memoir about growing up in New York City’s legendary Chelsea Hotel. Meet the family Rips: father Michael, a lawyer turned writer with a penchant for fine tailoring; mother Sheila, a former model and renowned sculptor who matches her welding outfits with couture; and daughter Nicolaia, a precocious and wry high school student at work on a highly unusual extracurricular activity, an official record of her peculiar childhood. Nicolaia is a perpetual outsider who has struggled to find her place in schools populated by cliquish girls and loudmouthed boys. But at the Chelsea, Nicolaia she has found her tribe. There’s her neighbor Stormé, a tall albino woman who keeps a pink handgun strapped to her ankle; her babysitter, Jade, who may or may not have a second career as an escort; her friend Artie, former proprietor of New York’s most famous nightclubs. The kids at school might never understand her, but as Nicolaia endeavors to fit in, she realizes that the Chelsea’s motley crew could hold the key to surviving the perils of her adolescence. “Nicolaia Rips is an old-soul sophisticate. Trying to Float is like Eloise meets Wes Anderson” (Elle), and not since Holden Caulfield has there been such a fabulously compelling teen guide to New York City. Rips’s debut is “charmingly self-deprecating and very funny…at once highly insightful and deeply familiar” (W Magazine), a triumphant parable for the power of embracing difference in all its forms. Her “engaging story with a big heart…will appeal to adults and teens alike” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

Explanation of the Book:

A boy’s small paper boat—and his large imagination—fill the pages of this wordless picture book, a modern-day classic from the creator of Pardon Me! that includes endpaper instructions for building a boat of your own. A little boy takes a boat made of newspaper out for a rainy-day adventure. The boy and his boat dance in the downpour and play in the puddles, but when the boy sends his boat floating down a gutter stream, it quickly gets away from him. So of course the little boy goes on the hunt for his beloved boat—and when the rain lets up, he finds himself on a new adventure altogether. This seemingly simply story from Daniel Miyares is enriched with incredible depth and texture that transcend words.

Explanation of the Book:

Designed to give you enough familiarity in a programming language to be immediately productive, Learning C# Programming with Unity 3D provides the basics of programming and brings you quickly up to speed. Organized into easy-to-follow lessons, the book covers how C# is used to make a game in Unity3D. After reading this book, you will be armed with the knowledge required to feel confident in learning more. You’ll have what it takes to at least look at code without your head spinning. Writing a massive multiplayer online role-playing game is quite hard, of course, but learning how to write a simple behavior isn’t. Like drawing, you start off with the basics such as spheres and cubes. After plenty of practice, you’ll be able to create a real work of art. This applies to writing code—you start off with basic calculations, then move on to the logic that drives a complex game. By the end of this book, you will have the skills to be a capable programmer, or at least know what is involved with how to read and write code. Although you could go online and find videos and tutorials, there is a distinct advantage when it comes to learning things in order and in one place. Most online tutorials for C# are scattered, disordered, and incohesive. It’s difficult to find a good starting point, and even more difficult to find a continuous list of tutorials to bring you to any clear understanding of the C# programming language. This book not only gives you a strong foundation, but puts you on the path to game development.
