Books by Effin
In Snowboarding, Effin Older discusses the basic and advanced techniques of pain-free snowboarding using expert advice from the instructors at Smugglers Notch Ski Resort and step-by-step, full-color photos – also by Effin – of the instructors in action. Equipment and gear selection, care and maintenance of your board and body, as well as boarding techniques for halfpipe, moguls, and powder are a few of the topics covered that will enable boarders of every age to have fun and develop their own style.
Books by Jules
Gear and maintenance for mountain and hybrid bikes. Advice from health and fitness experts on how to train and how to avoid injury. Plus, plenty of fat-tire, muddy-gear fun.
Everyone searching for a house or an apartment in a competitive market knows how vicious that jungle can be.
Jules and Effin Older have hacked through the housing wilderness in New York, New Zealand, and most recently, in hyper-hot San Francisco.
What they discovered will give home-seekers a distinct advantage. Jules has put everything he knows in an ebook, TAKE ME HOME: How to Rent or Buy in a Hot Home Market.
In his words, “What worked for us in San Francisco will work for you in Auckland and Oakland, Sydney and San Jose, Singapore and Shanghai, London and Los Angeles, Honolulu and Hong Kong, DC and NYC.” Check out the TAKE ME HOME minimovie.
DEATH BY TARTAR SAUCE is a wild ride through Jules Older’s strangest, wildest and funniest experiences as a travel writer. They take place in California, Colorado, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Vermont; Australia, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Puerto Rico, Scotland, Virgin Islands and New Zealand. The tales involve kids and sex (strangely, in that order), skiing and snowboarding, crocs and gators, grand opera and extremely fast cars.
The stories in DEATH BY TARTAR SAUCE take place while traveling alone, with his boisterous family, and with other travel writers – including the food writer who came close to experiencing Death By Tartar Sauce.
Get ready for a compendium of the wildest true tales by the greatest ski and snowboard writers. Tales of jail, of humiliation, of skiing through gunfire, snowboarding through pain, getting crushed by avalanche, threatened by authorities and nearly killing a couple of high-rolling ski students from Hong Kong.
