From the moment the starting gun is fired on Kona's sandy beach at the Ironman World Championship, triathletes have 17 hours to cross the finish line. It's a feat marking the ultimate achievement in the sport. "17 Hours to Glory" is one of only a few books to commemorate this dramatic quest. Seventeen compelling stories allow readers to experience the competition first-hand, revealing tremendous athleticism, unbelievable capacity for suffering, and true strength of character. The personal stories of triathlon's most epic characters come to life in this book, beginning with the famous story of Julie Moss's determination to reach the finish line, paving the way for future champions like Mark Allen and Paula Newby-Fraser, and a new generation of superstars in Greg Welch and Chrissie Wellington. "17 Hours to Glory" tells the stories of a sedentary secretary with all of the wrong habits taking up triathlon to lose weight, a nun who races triathlons to bring attention to her causes, and two men with a rivalry so intense that their disabilities fade into the shadows. Injury, tough breaks, and down-to-the-wire finishes highlight years of dedication to reaching a goal. Some will become champions, some will overcome all odds just to finish, only to come back and do it again. Triathlon's most dynamic heroes are candidly portrayed in "17 Hours to Glory," a book that puts no limits on the possibilities of the human spirit.

Three sets of ocean liners, each destined to be of three vessels, dominated the Atlantic in the Edwardian era. The race to build the biggest and the best began with Mauretania and Lusitania in 1906, followed by the White Star Line's Olympic and Titanic in 1911-12. Each of these pairs was to see a larger sister, developed as a result of changes needed or desired as a result of operating the two earlier vessels, with Cunard's being Aquitania and White Star's, the ill-fated Britannic. Germany's answer to these British behemoths was the Albert-Ballin designed trio of Imperator, Vaterland and Bismarck. Through misfortune or war, two of these vessels would sink but the others led useful lives, with Aquitania surviving two world wars before being scrapped. Designed to be the absolute engineering achievements of their time, these nine vessels dominated the Atlantic. J. Kent Layton tells the story of the Edwardian Superliners in this fabulously illustrated volume, showcasing many images previously unpublished and never before seen. Rarely can one describe a book as definitive, but this volume truly deserves the accolade.
