  • We don't talk about it and avoid the tension generating subject. Snoring makes us laugh or even cry. We very much want to get rid of it. There are ways to fight it. You will find an inventory of them herein, complete with advice on how to improve them, but that's not all! This book sets forth a natural and original manner of curing snoring and sleep apnea. It's an actively engaging method as opposed to others which confine the snorer to a passive role (drugs, surgery, etc.), proposing exercises by which the snorer strengthens and activates his oral cavity and refines its sensations. Validated by numerous doctors, physical therapists and practitioners of alternative medicine, this book can be read on different levels: by those who are just discovering their snoring problem as well as by those who are well aware of it but haven't yet found a satisfactory solution.

  • It is said that "words are the mirror of the heart" and that they also reflect my thoughts. If I want my language to be filled with Freedom, Wisdom and Love, there are certain words or at least a certain form of language that I must use.

    Jacques Martel has acquired a great expertise in this area through his many communications with the public since 1998, as much in Quebec as in Europe.

    In this book, which he intends as a practical tool, he shares with us several keys to help us make the messages we want to transmit more easily understood by others at the level of the heart. He gives me the knowledge of certain words related to spiritual principles, which I can integrate into my ordinary language with my family, my friends, my work relationships and when I address myself to a public. The result is a more effective and a truer communication.

  • Adventurer and mountaineer François-Guy Thivierge is one of the rare individuals to have conquered the highest peak on each of the seven continents and to have explored both poles. His book, aimed at both the general public and those with an appetite for big thrills, is a passionate account of the path that led him to "reach the summits." Magnificently illustrated with images taken along the way, this coffee-table book features 200 vivid and colourful photographs as well as fascinating texts about mountaineering and the art of testing one´s limits.

    Like a true world tour, the book takes the reader in turn to Aconcagua in Argentina, Kilimanjaro in Africa, Everest in Nepal, Vinson in Antarctica, Denali in Alaska, Elbrus in Russia and the Carstensz Pyramid in Indonesia, as well as the North and South Poles. A wealth of useful information, including a data sheet and descriptive sketch, is provided for each destination.

    The author recounts his extraordinary story full of hair-raising adventures. But above and beyond the feat itself, this book will prove to be a source of inspiration and motivation for all readers as well as a lesson on how to approach personal challenges, whatever they may be. You too can reach for the summits!

    With the collaboration of photographer Jean-Pierre Danvoye

  • The decline and fall of the Montreal Expos. In 1969, the Montreal Expos played their first game. Thirty-two years later, the team that once boasted baseball's best farm system is nearly dead. In this book, former Expos president Claude Brochu gets to the bottom of the Expos' story. From his successful marketing career at Seagram's, Claude Brochu was thrust into the role of Expos president in 1986. Back then, the Expos were a team with terrific potential. But as the years went by, attendance began to slide. Whenever owner Charles Bronfman attended a game he would shake his head, discouraged: "Why don't they come? What do we have to do?" The answer - field a winning team - seemed so simple, yet so elusive.
    And then, after 21 years, Bronfman decided to sell the team. He entrusted the sale to Brochu, who took up the gauntlet: "I made it a personal challenge. Businessmen are often portrayed as cold, emotionless people, who make decisions only on the eventual possibility of making a lot of money.? But that's not it at all. What fascinated me, what motivated me, was keeping the Expos in Montreal, in the hands of Quebecers. One of them being me.?"

  • "They need to think big like I did. If they can see it in their head, they can get there." Thinkin Big is the story of a kid whose dream was never supposed to come true: the story of a man who won hearts with his gentleness, but whose fearlessness was legendary. It is the biography of a champion once broken by boxing.
    As he watched Cassius Clay destroy Sonny Liston on February 25, 1964, James Tillis was told by God he would be a professional fighter. Thirty-three years later, James "Quick" Tillis, dubbed the Fightin Cowboy by Muhammad Ali, would record his story in a dimly lit jail cell. He was a young black athlete who'd clung to his alcoholic father and his religious mother, rising to battle seven heavyweight champions.
    But this naive heavyweight would be sacrificed by the sport he loved; it would rob him of the women he loved, his dignity, his fortune, and his title. He crawled into the ring 64 times to prove that he could win, but one dirty agent was determined to bleed him dry. Now he tells a story like no fighter before. It's raw, yet full of humour, told from a legend's perspective.
