Jonathan "Aggers" Agnew, England's voice of cricket, showcases some of the very best writings on the noble game, from the 1930s to the present day. In this wide-ranging and beautifully-produced anthology, Test Match Special's Jonathan "Aggers" Agnew, chooses a wide variety of writings on the sport that has consumed his life, from the 1932/33 Ashes (Bodyline) series right up to the present day. In a series of carefully considered, thematically organised reflections, he examines the importance of their contribution to our understanding and appreciation of cricket. With input from several eminent cricketing historians, including the librarian at Lord’s, the book contains a fascinating range of material, from renowned classics to books that have hardly seen the light of day in the United Kingdom (e.g. The Hanse Cronje Story by Garth King); from overseas fiction to modern day autobiographies (Marcus Trescothick, Simon Hughes, Mike Brearley etc.) that have attained classic status. With 75 seminal cricket images, original line drawings and a comprehensive index, this book is a must-have for any self-respecting cricket fan. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Taylor.

The magnificent Richard Armitage (Hamlet: King of Denmark: A Novel) performs The Chimes by Charles Dickens. This classic story is the second in a series of five Christmas books Dickens was commissioned to write - beginning with A Christmas Carol. A haunting tale set on New Year's Eve, The Chimes tells the story of a poor porter named Trotty Veck who has become disheartened by the state of the world - until he is shown a series of fantastical visions that convince him of the good of humanity. Though much different from and certainly a bit darker than A Christmas Carol, the moral message of The Chimes is equally poignant - touting the importance of compassion, goodwill, and the love of friends and family. The Chimes was followed by The Cricket on the Hearth, The Battle of Life, and finally The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Armitage.

What's safe to eat when you have an autoimmune disease? Let's face it. If you're sick with an autoimmune condition such as Hashimoto's, Celiac, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Crohn's, ulcerative colitis, chronic fatigue, or one of the many other autoimmune conditions out there, you simply don't have the energy to sift through piles of information just to try to figure out what's "safe" to eat. All you want is to find a way to finally heal and to eat in a way that's easy to follow, tastes good, and supports your healing...but it always seems so complicated. Eating to heal autoimmune disease doesn't have to be so hard. You've probably already read about the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol on various blogs or heard about it from a friend. Perhaps you've read other books that tell you the whys and the hows of autoimmune paleo, but you've been left feeling a bit confused. You need less of the "why" and more of the "how to" - without having to learn how to make the perfect paleo donut or an enticing cricket paella. Stop relying on willpower, there's a better way. There's a way to do the autoimmune paleo diet that doesn't rely on your willpower to resist the pizza or cake, or your ability to slave over a hot stove to produce three gourmet AIP meals per day. And you don't have to survive on canned tuna and broccoli every day - or ever. Enter the art of meal planning, shopping like a PRO, and batch cooking, all of which you'll learn in Healing with Paleo. People around you will start to notice that your skin looks great, and they'll be wondering what beauty products you've been using. You'll have more energy, a slimmer waistline, and more muscle definition. Finally a simple solution to the question of what's "safe" to eat. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicole Chriqui.
