Rolling a Kayak
by Ken Whiting

The roll is one of the most important paddling techniques for kayakers. As long as you don’t mind getting your head wet, you can learn to do it!

Rolling a Kayak is Ken Whiting’s sixth book on kayaking technique and the most comprehensive, clear and concise guide to learning and perfecting the roll. Written for both whitewater and sea kayakers, this book provides novice kayakers with foundation skills and step-by-step instruction for the standard rolls, such as the C-to-C, Sweep and Pawlata rolls. Experienced paddlers can take advantage of Ken’s clear explanations of how to execute advanced rolling techniques, including the Back Deck, Hand, and Dry Head rolls, as well as how to roll in current, waves, holes and ocean surf.

Ken also describes the most common problems that are encountered when learning the various types of rolls, and provides both their solutions as well as tricks for instructors to help students overcome them.

This large format, full color book features underwater photography to illustrate each step of the different rolls, making it easy to see and understand how each one is done.

Oscar and the Cricket
by Geoff Waring

Start with Science books introduce kids to core science concepts through engaging stories, fresh illustrations, and supplemental activities.
One day Oscar sees a ball in the grass. Try pushing it! says Cricket. Oscar learns that the ball rolls slowly in grass and faster on a path, until it bounces off a tree and changes direction. Some things need a push to move, and others use their muscles to move themselves — and to move plenty of other things, too.

Are We Still Rolling?
by Phill Brown

(Book). From the author’s first glimpse of a magical recording studio in the mid-1960s up through a busy career that continues to the present day, this rollicking story can only be told by those that werethere. As the young tape operator on sessions for The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and Joe Cocker at the famed Olympic Sound Studios in London, Phill learned the ropes from experienced engineers and producers such as Glyn Johns and Eddie Kramer. Phill soon worked his way up engineering sessions for Mott the Hoople, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley and many other lendary rockers. He eventually became a freelance engineer/producer and worked with Roxy Music, Go West, Talk Talk, and Robert Plant. But more than a recollection of participating in some of the most treasured music of the past 40 years, this is a man’s journey through life as Phill struggles to balance his home and family with a job where drug abuse, chaos, rampant egos, greed, lies and the increasingly invasive record business take their toll. It’s also a cautionary tale, where long workdays and what once seemed like harmless indulgences become health risks, yet eventually offer a time to reflect back on.

Are We Still Rolling?
by Phill Brown

With never-before-published photos and stories on legendary rock stars, Phill Brown describes the ups and downs of a professional recording studio. “In the form of a diary, he takes us through the crazy journey that is making music. His excellent recollections of the excesses of morons and geniuses involved in creating melodies and rhythms for us to enjoy are sheer entertainment.” – Musician Robert Palmer (from his foreword for the book).
