Leap in: A Woman, Some Waves and the Will to Swim

Hardback
by Heminsley, Alexandra
Alexandra Heminsley thought she could swim. She really did. It may have been because she could run. It may have been because she wanted to swim; or perhaps because she only ever did ten minutes of breaststroke at a time. But, as she learned one day while flailing around in the sea, she really couldn't.

The Miracle Brew: Hops, Barley, Water, Yeast and the Nature of Beer

Hardback
by Brown, Pete
