  • Jakob Fuglsang af Jakob Fuglsang i samarbejde med Rasmus Staghøj
    - Drømmen om regnbuestriberne og den gule trøje
    af Jakob Fuglsang i samarbejde med Rasmus Staghøj

    Jakob Fuglsang har i en årrække været Danmarks største cykelstjerne. Han blev verdensmester i mountainbike (U23) og vandt Post Danmark Rundt tre år i træk. Alligevel har mange cykelfans set ham som ”den evige toer”, som kunne køre med de stærkeste konkurrenter i alle terræner, men altid manglede det sidste for at kunne vinde store sejre.Endnu en andenplads, OL-sølvmedaljen i Rio, blev et vigtigt vendepunkt. Jakob Fuglsang har siden OL kørt med en fornyet angrebslyst og urokkelig selvtillid. Det gav bonus med en sejr i det prestigefulde Critérium du Dauphiné, hvor verdens bedste cykelryttere deltog, og kun et styrt og et brækket håndled forhindrede et topresultat i Tour de France. Nu stiler Jakob Fuglsang endnu højere. Hans drøm er at vinde den regnbuestribede trøje som verdensmester på landevej og erobre den gule trøje og en podieplads i Touren. I denne bog fortæller han ærligt om rejsen fra provinsdreng til cykelstjerne, om det personlige møde med cykelsportens store navne, fra Michael Rasmussen og Bjarne Riis til Brødrene Schleck, om de største resultater og om medaljens bagside, ensomheden og de afsavn, som er nødvendige for at nå sine mål. ”Jeg har mange mål tilbage i karrieren. Det største er at komme på podiet i Tour de France. Jeg tror fuldt og fast på, at det er muligt.” Jakob Fuglsang Fra Jørgen Leths forord: ”Ingen dansk cykelrytter siden Rolf Sørensen har haft en så iøjnefaldende elegance på cyklen. Jakob Fuglsang kan noget særligt.

  • Gul feber af Michael Rasmussen
    af Michael Rasmussen & Klaus Wivel

    MICHAEL RASMUSSEN har fortalt myndighederne om sit eget dopingmisbrug. Og om andre rytteres. Han er efterfølgende blevet kaldt stikker – af folk, som samtidig hævder, at de ønsker en ren sport. Holdningen synes at være, at man skal fortælle alt, men endelig ikke det hele.Argumentet er lige så korrupt som cykelsporten selv, men symptomatisk for en sportsgren, hvor rytterne bliver stigmatiseret, ligegyldigt hvad de gør. Holder de kæft, er de løgnere, der dækker over doping og ødelægger sporten. Går de til bekendelse, bliver de også kaldt løgnere og udstødt af cykelverdenen. MICHAEL RASMUSSEN har besluttet sig for at gøre op med tavshedskulturen. Kun den egentlige fortælling kan bringe cykelsporten videre.Nu er han klar til at fortælle sin historie.

  • Georgia Boy af Michael  Ravn Spar 22%
    - - truckerhistorier fra landevejen
    af Michael Ravn

    Willy Davidsen – i truckerkredse kendt som Georgia Boy – er med 45 år bag rattet og otte millioner kilometer på landevejene lidt af en asfaltlegende. Gennem ham og en flok kollegaer fortælles historien om de danske truckeres eksporteventyr med særlig fokus på de sjoveste, mest dramatiske og opsigtsvækkende historier fra bl.a. Sydeuropa, Sovjetunionen og Mellemøsten. Vi kommer rundt om alt fra smuglerier, bestikkelse, svindel og sortbørshandel til letlevende damer, kronprins Frederik og prins Joachim, den italienske mafia, spritkørsel, tragiske dødsfald og et afhugget hoved.”Jeg er lykkelig over at have siddet bag rattet i 45 år. Mit liv på landevejen har været opfyldelsen af en drøm; lige som det må være for en professionel fodboldspiller. Jeg drømte altid om at komme på hjul, og jeg har gjort min hobby til min levevej. Jeg har da også betalt en pris med overvægt, gigt, sukkersyge, et ægteskab, dårlig ryg, hæmorider i røven og det hele. Jeg har sgu haft hele pladen fuld. Men jeg er i live og elsker altså stadig mit liv og mit arbejde.”

  • En kæde af løgne af Juliet Macur
    - Afsløringen af Lance Armstrongs bedrag
    af Juliet Macur

    Lance Armstrong var i mere end et årti i stand til at opretholde sine løgne og manipulere en hel cykelverden – fans, sponsorer, medier, holdkammerater og de øverste ledere inden for sporten. Efter 90’ernes doping skandaler håbede cykelverdenen på med Armstrong at få den gode historie om en omsorgssvigtet knægt, der siden fik cancer, overlevede og kæmpede sig tilbage, vandt verdens hårdeste cykelløb syv gange og genrejste sporten. I stedet fik de en person, som uden skrupler indførte og stod i spidsen for det mest omfattende og systematiske dopingprogram endnu set, og som vanærede sporten mere end nogen anden.Armstrongs kæde af løgne blev desperat holdt i live frem til 2013, hvor presset på Armstrong blev for stort, og han foran millioner af tv-seere indrømmede sit karrierelange dopingmisbrug. En kæde af løgne er den definitive fortælling om cykelrytteren Lance Armstrongs fald fra tinderne. Om enden på den syvdobbelte Tour de Francevinders glorværdige karriere, der viste sig at være baseret på en kæde af løgne.

  • Lars Bak - Hjælperytteren af Carsten Ritter Spar 18%
    af Carsten Ritter & Lars Bak

    LARS BAK kørte sit første cykelløb på en af Bjarne Riis' gamle cykler og vandt, selvom han stillede op i gummisko. Det var også Ørnen fra Hernings præstationer i 1990'erne, der fik silkeborgdrengen til at droppe fodboldkarrieren for at blive professionel cykelrytter. Senere kom han til CSC og kørte for Riis, men efter fem uforløste år, hvor han aldrig fik lov til at køre Tour de France, brød han med sin mentor. På HTC, under Brian Holm, kom så Tour-udtagelsen i 2011, og med den fik Lars Bak sit store gennembrud og trådte i karakter som 'verdens bedste hjælperytter'. Dette er Lars Baks fortælling om livet som hjælperytter helt nede i asfalthøjde. Om tvivlen, når det går skidt. Om begejstringen, når det går godt. Om de modbydelige styrt. Om ilden, der brænder i brystet. Om drømmene, der aldrig slukkes, og om de sjældne og magiske øjeblikke, hvor hjælperytteren selv stjæler rampelyset. Ingen danskere har kørt flere Grand Tours end Lars Bak. Ingen har deltaget i flere Paris-Roubaix. En professionel karriere på foreløbig 17 år vidner om en stabilitet uden sidestykke. Karrieren lakker mod enden, men den er ikke slut, for ilden brænder stadig i brystet.

Miraculously and against all the odds, however, Homer grew into a feline dynamo who scaled seven-foot bookcases with ease, saved his human mom's life when he chased a late-night burglar from their apartment, and rose to global fame-paving the way for other special-needs animals once considered "e;unadoptable."e;Now, only two weeks before Christmas, with doctors once again decreeing that Homer didn't have much time-that he wouldn't even make it to Christmas Eve-Homer showed everyone that he still had one more miracle left in him. The heroic blind cat proved again, once and for all, that hope and love aren't things you see with your eyes. You see them with your heart.Humorous and heartwarming, Homer and the Holiday Miracle will leave you filled with the true spirit of the season.

  • Almost Human af Lee Berger Spar 24%
    af Lee Berger & John Hawks

    A story of defiance and determination by a controversial scientist, this is Lee Berger's own take on finding Homo naledi, an all-new species on the human family tree and one of the greatest discoveries of the twenty-first century.In 2013, Lee Berger, a National Geographic explorer-in-residence, heard of a cache of bones in a hard-to-reach underground cave in South Africa. He put out a call around the world for petite collaborators-men and women small and adventurous enough to be able to squeeze through eight-inch tunnels to reach a sunless cave forty feet underground. With this team, Berger made the discovery of a lifetime: hundreds of prehistoric bones, including entire skeletons of at least fifteen individuals, all perhaps two million years old. Their features combined those of known prehominids like Lucy, the famous Australopithecus, with those more human than anything ever before seen in prehistoric remains. Berger's team had discovered an all new species, and they called it Homo naledi.The cave quickly proved to be the richest prehominid site ever discovered, full of implications that shake the very foundation of how we define what makes us human. Did this species come before, during, or after the emergence of Homo sapiens on our evolutionary tree? How did the cave come to contain nothing but the remains of these individuals? Did they bury their dead? If so, they must have had a level of self-knowledge, including an awareness of death. And yet those are the very characteristics used to define what makes us human. Did an equally advanced species inhabit Earth with us, or before us? Berger does not hesitate to address all these questions.Some colleagues question Berger's interpretation of this and other finds. Here, this charismatic and visionary paleontologist counters their arguments and tells his personal story: a rich and readable narrative about science, exploration, and what it means to be human.

    The hilarious adventures of a dog lover extraordinaireThis brilliant reading of a tale of life with all things dogs-especially Airedales-will transport you to a gentle, fun-loving universe where dog-driven disaster is only a short walk away.Due to his obsession with hedgehogs, Mr. Mac was walked on a leash in the garden first thing in the morning before the sun was up and as soon as it was dusk, when hedgehogs are likely to be around searching for food. Thus, you can imagine how mad I was when I arrived home from work on Friday, drove towards my gate, and saw this half-flat, spiky brown lump in the middle of the road."e;Arrrgggghhhh!"e; I shouted at it. "e;You stupid, stupid hedgehog!"e; I parked my car in the drive and stomped back up the road. I was still shaking my head and ranting, "e;How could you be so stupid? After my efforts to keep you safe all summer, you go and run out in front of a car in broad daylight."e;I reached the little spiky brown lump and stared at it as if I was hoping for an answer to my questions about its stupidity. Then a big smile spread across my face, and I looked around sheepishly, hoping that no one had witnessed or heard my outburst. The little spiky brown lump had been left on the road by a horse.

    A decade ago, former military counterintelligence officer Terry Henry joined his precocious young daughter, Kyria, on a trip to a nursing home in order to allow its residents to play with their family dog, a golden retriever named Riley. Terry was astounded by the transformations that unfolded before his eyes. Soon after, Terry and Kyria started their service dog organization, Paws4people, with the goal of pairing dogs with human beings in need of healing, including traumatized and wounded war veterans and children living with physical, emotional, and intellectual disabilities.In A Dog's Gift, award-winning journalist and author Bob Drury movingly captures the story of a year in the life of Paws4people and the broken bodies and souls the organization mends. The book follows the journey of pups bred by the organization from their loving, if rigorous, early training to an emotional event that Terry and Kyria have christened "e;the bump,"e; where each individual service dog chooses its new owner through an almost mystical connection that ignites the healing process. Incorporating vivid storytelling, insights into canine wisdom, history, science, and moving tales of personal transformation, A Dog's Gift is a story of miracles bound to be embraced by not only the sixty million Americans who own dogs but by anyone with a full heart and a loving soul.

When winter comes, they travel from Oregon to the beaches of California and to the high plains of Montana, surviving blizzards and bears, angry steers and rainstorms. Along the way, people are drawn to the spirited, beautiful cat and moved to help Michael, who cuts a striking figure with Tabor riding high on his backpack or walking on a leash.

As they make their way across the West Coast, the pair become inseparable, healing the scars of each other's troubled pasts. But when Michael takes Tabor to a veterinarian in Montana, he discovers that Tabor has an identification chip and an owner in Portland who has never given up hope of finding his beloved cat.

    The 1914 Giro d'Italia was the most difficult bike race in history; eighty-one riders started and only eight finished. Now Tim Moore is going to attempt it himself, and he's committed to total authenticity.Twelve years after Tim Moore toiled around the route of the Tour de France, he senses his achievement being undermined by the truth about "e;Horrid Lance."e; His rash response is to take on a fearsome challenge from an age of untarnished heroes: the notorious 1914 Giro d'Italia. History's most appalling bike race was an ordeal of 400-kilometer stages filled with cataclysmic storms, roads strewn with nails, and even the loss of an eye by one competitor-and it was all on a diet of raw eggs and red wine.Of the eighty-one riders who rolled out of Milan, only eight made it back. To truly capture the essence of what these riders endured a century ago, Tim acquires the ruined husk of a gearless, wooden-wheeled 1914 road bike, some maps, and an alarming period outfit topped off with a pair of blue-lensed welding goggles. As Moore rides up and over the Alps and then down to the Adriatic (with only wine corks for brakes), Gironimo! is an adventure that is by turns bold, beautiful, and madly inspiring.

    A charming, practical, and unsentimental approach to putting a home in order while reflecting on the tiny joys that make up a long life.In Sweden there is a kind of decluttering called dstdning, d meaning ';death' and stdning meaning ';cleaning.' This surprising and invigorating process of clearing out unnecessary belongings can be undertaken at any age or life stage but should be done sooner than later, before others have to do it for you. In The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning, artist Margareta Magnusson, with Scandinavian humor and wisdom, instructs readers to embrace minimalism. Her radical and joyous method for putting things in order helps families broach sensitive conversations, and makes the process uplifting rather than overwhelming. Margareta suggests which possessions you can easily get rid of (unworn clothes, unwanted presents, more plates than you'd ever use) and which you might want to keep (photographs, love letters, a few of your children's art projects). Digging into her late husband's tool shed, and her own secret drawer of vices, Margareta introduces an element of fun to a potentially daunting task. Along the way listeners get a glimpse into her life in Sweden, and also become more comfortable with the idea of letting go.

Det skete, at de var ved at skride omkuld på den glatte mergelbund eller var kommet så langt ud i rørskovens kant, at vandet pludselig blev farligt blåsort, og bunden forsvandt foran dem stejlt, næsten lodret nedad i dybet."Gennem en række korte prosatekster tegner Johannes Stræde et billede af landsbylivet i mellemkrigstidens Danmark. Selvom teksterne knytter sig til en bestemt egn, kan de på mange måder beskrive en hvilken som helst dansk landsby i mellem 1920 og 1940.Johannes Stræde (1920-2018) var en dansk forfatter, højskoleforstander og grundtvigianer. I løbet af sit liv arbejdede Johannes Stræde blandt andet som kommunalchef i den daværende Rosenholm Kommune på Djursland og som våbenmester. I løbet af sit liv udgav han et væld af bøger om billedkunst, lokalhistorie og kultur.

    af Lawrence Burns

    From the ultimate insider - a former General Motors executive and current advisor to the Google Self-Driving Car project - comes the definitive story of the race between Google, Tesla and Uber to create the driverless car. We stand on the brink of a technological revolution. In the near future, most of us will not own automobiles, but will travel instead in driverless electric vehicles summoned at the touch of an app. We will be liberated from driving, so that the time we spend in cars can be put to more productive use. We will prevent more than 90 percent of car crashes, provide freedom of mobility to the elderly and disabled and decrease our dependence on fossil fuels. Autonomy tells the story of the maverick engineers and computer experts who triggered the revolution. Lawrence Burns long-time adviser to the Google self-driving car project (now Waymo) and former corporate vice president of research, development and planning at General Motors provides the perfectly timed history of how we arrived at this point, in a character-driven and vivid account of the unlikely thinkers who accomplished what billion-dollar automakers never dared. Beginning at a 2004 off-road robot race across the Mojave Desert with a million-dollar purse and continuing up to the current stampede to develop driverless technology, Autonomy is a page-turning chronicle of the past, a diagnosis of the present and a prediction of the future the ultimate guide to understanding the driverless car and to navigating the revolution it has sparked.
