Hans Florine embodies the genius of "and"—collaborative and competitive, fast and safe, audacious and disciplined, visionary and quantitative. The themes that run through Florine's 101 ascents of Yosemite's most iconic route can benefit people who will never climb a rock, indeed anyone inspired by the idea of a passionate, lifelong quest of any type. —Jim Collins, author of Good to Great Hans Florine is a big-wall climbing legend in his own time. He holds the speed record on the Nose route of El Capitan, a 3,000-foot granite cliff in Yosemite Valley that’s considered the Everest of the rock-climbing world. Ascending the Nose takes most climbers anywhere from 12 to 96 hours. Florine, along with climbing partner Alex Honnold, does it in an astounding 2.5 hours. But Florine’s story is not one of super-human athletic prowess; it’s one of persistence and dogged determination. In 30 years of climbing, he's ascended the Nose a mind-blowing, death-defying 100 times, more than anyone else ever has, and most likely ever will. In On the Nose, Florine describes the most dangerous, pivotal, and inspirational of those climbs, providing a rare look inside the adrenaline-charged world of competitive climbing in Yosemite Valley. He tells of his very first attempt on the Nose, which ended in failure after 14 hours, his friendships (and rivalries) with climbing’s most colorful personalities, and his battle with Dean Potter to secure the definitive speed record on the Nose—an endeavor that’s been called the wildest competition known to man. Perhaps most interestingly, Florine attempts to answer the question why. Why would anyone undertake one of the greatest adventure epics on earth 100 times? His answers provide unique insights on how to live a satisfying life, how to achieve big goals, and how an otherwise ordinary guy can become a rock star.

'Strangely enough, I mistook it for a gentleman at first. Fortunately I had my spectacles with me so I could see it was really a nose.'
Seized by a fear he could not explain, he rushed to the table and balanced the mirror, to make sure he did not attach the nose at a wrong angle. His hands were trembling. Cautiously, deliberately, he applied itto its erstwhilehome on ...

A masterpiece of satire and a key work of the Russian "fantastic" movement. One of the most celebrated tales in Russian literature. Collegiate Assessor Kovalyov awakens to discover that his nose is missing, leaving a smooth, flat patch of skin in its place. He finds and confronts his nose in the Kazan Cathedral, but from its clothing it is apparent that the nose has acquired a higher rank in the civil service than he and refuses to return to his face. THE ART OF THE NOVELLA Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers but beloved and practiced by literature's greatest writers. The Art of the Novella Series celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners. The series has been recognized for its "excellence in design" by AIGA.

Logan Turner's Diseases of the Nose, Throat and Ear, Volume 10 is intended to serve as a preparatory volume for senior students, general practitioners, and trainees in otolaryngology preparing for a fellowship examination in otolaryngology. The authors of this volume tried not to confine their presentations to pathology in Northern Europe given differences in the presentation of pathology in developed and the developing countries and the popularity of this book in Middle East, the Indian Subcontinent, and South East Asia. This book is organized into four main sections. The first three sections cover the anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the nose, head and neck, and the ear. The final section deals with pediatric otalaryngology. Several changes were made in this tenth volume. These include the presentation of otology, audiology, and otoneurology as an integrated whole; the rewriting of the section of rhinology; addition of a section on pediatric otolaryngology; and modification and expansion of the section on head and neck surgery. This book will be of interest to senior students, general practitioners, and trainees in otolaryngology.
