"The design and tactical battles that led to the most exciting America’s Cup in history are laid out in meticulous detail in Winging It: Oracle Team USA’s Incredible Comeback to Defend The America’s Cup. Written by three veteran sailing journalists, Winging It provides an insider’s look at the professional sailing business and the America’s Cup, from how the 72-foot cats became the boat of choice — one early requirement: They had to be able to be disassembled and transported in standard shipping containers — to the design modifications Oracle made in the later stages of the series to bounce back from an 8:1 deficit and retain the Cup (not much besides some minor tinkering with the rudder)." -Forbes "Whether you are a casual fan or a die-hard America's Cup follower, you're likely to enjoy Winging It. The three authors-all accredited journalists who spent many, many hours in the America's Cup Media Center-will take you from the origins of the America's Cup in 1851 all the way through Oracle Team USA's incredible comeback in San Francisco in September 2013." -CupExperience.com "Winging It holds a place on my bookshelf that is within easy reach. It has become the go-to book on the 34th America’s Cup as a means of quickly checking a fact, or time sequence or some aspect of the Cup that has become a little fuzzy even after this short passage of time. It should have a place in everyone's laptop kitbag, either as a quick read in a spare moment, or as a serious reference." -Sail-World.com A miracle on the water Millions of sailing enthusiasts and casual fans alike watched the America’s Cup in awe as the ORACLE TEAM USA trailing one point to New Zealand’s eight, was first to the finish line in eight consecutive races. This miracle triumph left many wondering "How did they do it?" The answers come together in Winging It, with insights from naval architects and builders on their radical boat designs, the consequences of racing these untested boats, and explanations of how the foils and wingsails—rarely seen on boats before—work. The book explores the impact of events that led up to the Cup, including how a sudden capsize threw the entire event into doubt before the 2013 America’s Cup ultimately delivered an epic finale. Top sailors share their stories, including the victorious Jimmy Spithill on USA 17 and the shockingly defeated ETNZ skipper Dean Barker. This is the story of an historic win that goes beyond the emotions of the day to explain how the many months of innovation, research, trials, and failures helped secure the Cup in the final race on September 25.

A "strikingly imaginative" (O, The Oprah Magazine) and heartfelt memoir for every woman on the verge of becoming and empty nester In her critically acclaimed debut memoir, Still Life with Chickens, Catherine Goldhammer shared her recovery from the chaos of divorce: moving with her daughter Harper to a seaside New England town, renovating a rustic cottage, and raising six chickens. Winging It picks up when Harper begins her junior year of high school and Catherine suddenly realizes that both she and her daughter will be on their own in two short years. Like so many mothers, Catherine feels woefully unprepared for not only her daughter's independence, but also her own. Yet as friends, ex-lovers, adventures, and opportunities emerge, Catherine begins to realize that her life will not end with her daughter's departure, but begin anew. With wit, charm, and candor, she reveals her journey of rediscovering herself through one of life's most universal transitions, including the lesson that letting go doesn't have to mean losing those you love.

A gift from an overseas relative, Graycie, an African Gray parrot, arrives in the Gardiner home not long after the birth of their first child, adding the responsibilities of parrot-hood to their newfound parenthood. Jenny Gardiner and her husband were hoping for a docile, beautifully plumed, Polly-want-a-cracker type of companion—but patchily feathered, scrawny, ill-tempered Graycie was the furthest thing from what they envisioned.. In Winging It , Gardiner shares in vivid and hilarious detail the many hazards of parrot ownership, from endless avian latrine duty to discovering the multiple ways a beak can pierce human flesh. Whether she’s swearing at the dog, mimicking the sound of the smoke alarm, or bobbing to the beat of the kids clapping for her amusement, she brings the family joy, laughter, and, sometimes, tears. So why would the Gardiners subject themselves to the crazy behavior of this parrot for so long? Well, because, as the Gardiners realize, Graycie is a part of the family, and just like in any relationship between living creatures, things do not always go according to plan.. A mix of hilarious pet hijinks and a poignant story of family commitment, Winging It is a reminder of the importance of patience, loyalty, and humor when it comes to dealing with even the most temperamental members of the family..
