Description : For centuries mystical creatures of all description were gathered into a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite. Kendra and her brother, Seth, have no idea that their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven. Inside the gated woods, ancient laws keep relative order among greedy trolls, mischievous satyrs, plotting witches, spiteful imps, and jealous fairies. However, when the rules get broken -- Seth is a bit too curious and reckless for his own good -- powerful forces of evil are unleashed, and Kendra and her brother face the greatest challenge of their lives. To save their family, Fablehaven, and perhaps even the world, Kendra and Seth must find the courage to do what they fear most.

Description : Do you secretly wish you got comments like the below most of the time - "You've got unnatural pulling power! It has to be something to do with the exercises you do!" (from folks that outweigh me by about a 1000 pounds - well - not really - but you get the drift - and folks from various disciplines of life, including, but not limited to those from the elite forces, boxers, weightlifters and the like). "You need to take it easy, man!" (when shaking hands with folks) "Man - you're a skinny dude - and yet you've got this amazing grip strength, not to mention the fact you're in shape". Farmers, wrestlers, strongmen (note – I mean STRONG men, not the bloated “muscle boys” you see preening “their stuff” in the gyms), tennis players, elite forces all over the world, and martial artists. What do the following groups of people have in common, other than the fact they perform different types of physical activity on a regular and daily basis? Some may have “bulging muscles”, and some may not. Some may be “ripped to shreds” (UGH, I think I’m going to rip the next book apart that spouts that sort of nonsense), and others might be solidly built. Some might even need to lose a bit of weight, while others might be so skinny you could hang a pair of freshly pressed trousers on them. So, and again, what do these people all have in common? Strength and stamina, I hear some of you say. Well, good answer - - but what else? A STRONG GRIP. A farmer, for instance, might not have archetypical “show” muscles, but grip his hand at the end of a long, hard day (his, spent working on the farm), and you’ll quickly experience the closest thing you can to an actual gorilla’s grip. A wrestler’s forearm might not look “pretty”, and neither might his calloused and bandaged hands, but those very mitts can take the typical bodybuilder’s arm in a vice like grip that the bodybuilder would be hard pressed to even TRY and escape from, and do things with it that would have the average “pretezel”blushing with shame (that old line, “twist you into a pretezel”!). A tennis player, martial artist, a boxer, a gymnast – you name it, and the list goes on and on – all people that perform physical activity on a daily basis, different sorts, but they have all that ONE thing in common i.e. a strong, bone crushing, vice like grip. And this, my friend, is one of the most important parts of a human being’s overall physical development. The forearms, fingers and wrist are what make up the “gripping muscles”, and you use these in virtually ALL situations in daily life, from carrying groceries up the stairs to lugging heavy furniture around. To put it another way, showy biceps might help you get the lady, for instance, but couple those with weak forearms, and you’ll never be able to carry her up that flight of stairs to your apartment. You might be able to curl impressive poundages in the gym using straps and other aids, but when it comes to doing pull-ups on a thick bar, a weak grip is what will let you down the most. On the other hand, a strong grip is an advantage in just about every situation. The PLETHORA of exercises that I give you in 0 Excuses Fitness do a great job of building a vice like, bone crushing grip, and truth be told that's all you need if you do 'em right - and yet - there are those that want MORE. Well, I wrote "Gorilla Grip" for those of you that "want more". And here it is. 16 exercises that should be done IN ADDITION to or in CONJUNCTION with (NOT "in place of!") the exercises I mention in 0 Excuses Fitness. Enjoy!
Description : Get caught! Life is full of fumbles and stumbles. Fraught with opportunities to make mistakes, occasions to feel guilty, and the drive to “do it yourself.” The pressure to be self-sufficient is high, but it isn’t the life God offers. The way of the world will direct you to try harder and work smarter so that you can take care of yourself and even make yourself successful. But the way of the cross will point toward the place where you stop striving . . . stop pushing . . . stop every self-initiated effort—so that you can fall into the boundless, liberating, refreshing grace of God! Just imagine being love-driven instead of self-propelled. Imagine abandoning your life to Jesus instead of trying to save yourself. Can you imagine exchanging your fears for that peace that passes understanding? Being relaxed and free instead of stressed-out and anxious? If you can imagine enjoying God instead of trying to repay him, then you can imagine grace. So go ahead! Jump off the cliff of self-sufficiency. Leap out of legalism. Walk off the pier of guilt and condemnation. That’s the only way you’ll land in the strong arms of the Father who loves you . . . the Father who catches you—every time—in the grip of his grace.
