Dinner with DiMaggio: Memories of an American Hero (USED)

$5.99
More Info
The real Joe DiMaggio, remembered by one of the few who really knew the man behind the legend--candid and little-known stories about baseball icons from Ted Williams, Lou Gehrig, and his Yankees teammates on the field to Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, and others off the field. As told by Dr. Rock Positano, DiMaggio's closest confidante in New York during the final years of his life, Dinner with DiMaggio is an intimate portrait of one of America's most enduring heroes.

This memoir of a decade-long friendship reveals the very private DiMaggio as he really was--sometimes demanding, sometimes big-hearted, always impeccable, loyal, and a true stand-up guy--while serving up illuminating stories and rare insights about the people in his life, including his teammates, Muhammad Ali, Sandy Koufax, Woody Allen, and more.

In 1990, Dr. Rock Positano, the thirty-two-year-old foot and ankle specialist, was introduced to DiMaggio, the pair brought together by a career-ending heel spur injury. Though Dr. Positano was forty years younger, an unlikely friendship developed after the doctor successfully treated the baseball champ's heel. At the start, Joe mentored Rock but came to rely on his young friend to show him a good time in New York, the town that made him a legend. In time, the famously reserved DiMaggio opened up to Dr. Positano and talked about his joys, his disappointments, and his sorrows as he reflected on his extraordinary life. The stories and experiences shared with Dr. Positano comprise an intimate portrait of one of the great stars of baseball and icon of the twentieth century.

Scripted, directed, and narrated by Carl Adams, author of the widely acclaimed book, Essential Guide to Dual Sport Motorcycling, this video is a valuable companion to the book, teaching critical riding skills necessary for safe off-road travel. Many people are attracted to dual sport and adventure riding by the challenge of riding well away from highways, but off-road conditions are often loose, rocky, and steep. Rather than having fun, new dirt riders may struggle with unfamiliar motorcycles on unforgiving ground. Others return to dirt riding after a long absence, or ride infrequently and need to polish their skills. The eight lessons in the video teach how to ride safely and smoothly over a wide variety of dirt surfaces. Lessons two through six cover seated riding, line selection, and riding while standing, stressing body position and control. Lesson seven shows techniques for frequently encountered obstacles such as sand, rocks, and hills, and Lesson eight introduces rough terrain. The riding techniques are presented in a series of simple exercises which are meant to be ridden. They build in a logical sequence to show increasingly difficult techniques. The DVD package also includes a printed Field Guide that may be taken on training rides as a reference for all of the exercises.

Eiger Obsession

Eiger Obsession

$4.99
More Info
In the 1960s an American named John Harlin II changed the face of Alpine climbing. Gutsy and gorgeous -- he was known as "the blond god" -- Harlin successfully summitted some of the most treacherous mountains in Europe. But it was the north face of the Eiger that became Harlin's obsession. Living with his wife and two children in Leysin, Switzerland, he spent countless hours planning to climb, waiting to climb, and attempting to climb the massive vertical face. It was the Eiger direct -- the "direttissima" -- with which John Harlin was particularly obsessed. He wanted to be the first to complete it, and everyone in the Alpine world knew it.

John Harlin III was nine years old when his father made another attempt on a direct ascent of the notorious Eiger. Harlin had put together a terrific team, and, despite unending storms, he was poised for the summit dash. It was the moment he had long waited for. When Harlin's rope broke, 2,000 feet from the summit, he plummeted 4,000 feet to his death. In the shadow of tragedy, young John Harlin III came of age possessed with the very same passion for risk that drove his father. But he had also promised his mother, a beautiful and brilliant young widow, that he would not be an Alpine climber.

Harlin moved from Europe to America, and, with an insatiable sense of wanderlust, he reveled in downhill skiing and rock-climbing. For years he successfully denied the clarion call of the mountain that killed his father. But in 2005, John Harlin could resist no longer. With his nine-year-old daughter, Siena -- his very age at the time of his father's death -- and with an IMAX Theatre filmmaking crew watching, Harlin set off to slay the Eiger. This is an unforgettable story about fathers and sons, climbers and mountains, and dreamers who dare to challenge the earth.
