Wide Open: A Life in Supercross
Jeremy McGrath has been called 'the Michael Jordan of Supercross' by The Los Angeles Times, and in this revealing book the fans not only get his personal story, but also a detailed guide running throughout on how everyone can become a Supercross racer. The number 1 Supercross racer in the world – who has over 20 sponsors, his own film company, a toy line, Nintendo and Playstation games, and a Van signature shoe – talks about his life and the sport. Supercross started out as a redneck '70s sideshow, but thanks largely to Jeremy McGrath – known everywhere as the Michael Jordan of Supercross – it has become a massive extreme sport. Over the last three years, AMA Supercross attendance has mushroomed from 700,000 spectators a year to 1.5 million. This book will satisfy even the most hardcore fans, as it not only gives you the life and times of Jeremy McGrath, but acts as the calling card to the entire sport by including unique sections on how to become a Supercross racer, the work–out regimes, fixing common bike problems, and more.

Zoom: The Global Race to Fuel the Car of the Future
If oil is a problem, it seems that cars are the solution. Working on innovative, environmental technologies and entirely new business models, the car industry could be launching society's greatest leap forward in a hundred years. Zoom visits the boardrooms of oil executives and shows how some are fearlessly exploring new energy sources and designs. Elsewhere, Carson and Vaitheeswaran examine the alliances that are being formed to end our addiction to oil in both the West and the growing markets of China, India and Russia, as well as what Toyota and the Prius can teach us, economically and ecologically. Zoom also introduces the Thomas Edison of the twenty-first century, a legendary inventor whose revolutionary work with hydrogen-powered vehicles on a pure water loop is already having a positive impact on the environment and the marketplace. The global race to discover cleaner energy sources is on - and Zoom demonstrates just how cars could be the driving force to a better and cleaner future.
