Free sample

A surprising journey from tech support to professional marksman in front of the cameras.

Chris Cheng won the title of “Top Shot,” a $100,000 cash prize, and a professional marksman contract with the show sponsor, Bass Pro Shops. How did a tech support guy who didn’t shoot a lot of guns beat out seventeen other competitors—including seasoned military veterans, law enforcement officers, and pro marksmen—in History Channel’s Top Shot season 4?

An excellent guide for beginning shooters, Cheng focuses on the basics and ammunition of pistols, rifles, and shotguns, marksmanship fundamentals, and buying a firearm. Other chapters include:

Dry Fire Practice
Firearm Accessories
Safely Storing Your Firearm
Cleaning and Maintaining Your Guns
And much more!

Additionally, Cheng covers his approach to staying calm under pressure, teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership. These traits contributed to his coming out on top and staying above the fray.

With a foreword written by Top Shot season 3 champion Dustin Ellermann and an afterword written by the original Top Shot champion Iain Harrison, Shoot to Win is sure to please shooters of all stripes, but especially fans of History Channel’s program Top Shot.

Don Cherry straddled the world of music and the world of golf. With his two innate talents, Cherry ascended to unbelievable heights--making gold records, winning major golf victories, and securing a place for himself in the history books. As a result, he touched the lives of dozens of big-time athletes and stars. From Demaret to Crosby, Dino to Palmer, Nicklaus to Sinatra, and Mickey Mantle to former U.S. presidents. Known in the sports world for his animated style and fiercely competitive nature, Cherry came close to winning the U.S. Open in 1960. At the same time, he got paid to sing, earning worldwide fame as the voice of "Mister Clean" (the most famous commercial jingle in the world), while making top-selling records. Cherry cut records that earned gold, such as "Band of Gold." He headlined at the Desert Inn and palled around with Rat Packer Dean Martin. He played The Masters nine times, won the famed America's Golf Cup twice, and took home the Walker Cup three times. All of these are highlighted in "Cherry's Jubilee." So are some of his darker moments--such as the time he nearly died, falling into a coma before comedian Buddy Hackett diagnosed what the doctors couldn't--and the most devastating blow of his life, the death of his son, who was killed in the World Trade Center on 9/11. In "Cherry's Jubilee," Don Cherry tells the story of his remarkable life. In a down-home and honest manner, using humor and wit, he offers countless anecdotes, clubhouse stories, and backstage tales about his life and career. His engaging accounts, along with the many names and celebrities you will recognize along the way, show just how fascinating and consequential Don Cherry really was--and is. This is the true rags-to-riches story of a man who has lived the American dream and definitely earned his own band of gold.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

With a New Afterword by the Author

"By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Hannah Hart’s new book is a roaring, beautiful, and profoundly human account of an extraordinary life."—John Green 

"Hannah shares her truth with an honesty that is inspiring—one that makes me believe her when she says that it’s going to get better or that laughter is just around the corner or that you aren’t alone."—Jenny Lawson, #1 New York Timesbestselling author of Let's Pretend This Never Happenedand Furiously Happy 

The wildly popular YouTube personality, star of Food Network's I Hart Food, and author of the New York Times bestseller My Drunk Kitchen is back! This time, she’s stirring up memories and tales from her past.

By combing through the journals that Hannah has kept for much of her life, this collection of narrative essays deliver a fuller picture of her life, her experiences, and the things she’s figured out about family, faith, love, sexuality, self-worth, friendship and fame.

Revealing what makes Hannah tick, this sometimes cringe-worthy, poignant collection of stories is sure to deliver plenty of Hannah’s wit and wisdom, and hopefully encourage you to try your hand at her patented brand of reckless optimism.

Personal note:

Hello, my darlings! I am incredibly pleased to present BUFFERING: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded!

As a big fan of memoirs, I wanted to try my hand at writing about the events of my life that deserve a little more consideration than can be accomplished in 140-characters or a 6-minute vlog. Now on the cusp of turning 30, I'm ready to expose some parts of my life that I haven't shared before. Before, it was all about privacy, process and time. And now the time has come! I’m ready to put myself out there, for you.  

I'm a little nervous about all these vulnerable words going into the world, these tales about my love life, the wrestling I’ve done with faith, how I feel about sex and my family and myself. I’ve had a lot of trials, a lot of errors, but also a lot of passion. Here’s the thing--I've always found comfort in the stories shared by others, so I hope my stories, now that I feel ready to tell them, will bring you some comfort too.

And when you read this book please remember: Buffering is just the time it takes to process.

Enjoy!

Love,

Hannah
