In 2007, Chrissie Wellington shocked the triathlon world by winning the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. As a newcomer and a complete unknown to the press, Chrissie's win shook up the sport. A Life without Limits is the story of her rise to the top, a journey that has taken her around the world, from a childhood in England, to the mountains of Nepal, to the oceans of New Zealand, to the trails of Argentina, and finally, across the finish line. A Life without Limits reveals the heart behind her success.

Um homem busca espaço para apoiar seu cotovelo ao lado de uma mulher gorda no avião. O amor do ventríloquo se expressa pelas vozes dos seres inanimados. A vaca é transfigurada em fonte de alimento, de sonho, de desejo. Moacyr Scliar surpreende até quando se propõe a ser simples, como a saída que encontra para vencer o estresse no conto Pausa, ou quando conta sem floreios o que faz um corretor de imóveis para vender um apartamento de cobertura.

Lisa Bloom fears that women are in danger of spiraling into a nation of dumbed-down, tabloid-media-obsessed, reality TV addicts. Too often, they outsource matters to "experts" and in doing so neglect to truly think for themselves. But she has the solution and it involves one simple word: Think.
