living room. Mile High brings together the most successful elements of
the fitness industry's group exercise programs, capturing the
enthusiasm of cardio with the freedom and balance of barefoot

up, 23 min. of cardio, and 13 min. of flexible strength training, none
of which require any expensive equipment. An upbeat, positive-minded
fitness program overflowing with joy and positive affirmations as well
as a solid fitness core, Willpower & Grace: Mile High is highly
recommended.

USS Franklin: Honor Restored
Janson Media
88 Semmens Road
Harrington Park, NJ 07640
9781568394136 $24.95 www.janson.com

USS Franklin: Honor Restored is an extraordinary documentary about the
USS Franklin and her crew. The USS Franklin served the American Navy
proudly during World War II, earning the moniker of "The Ship That
Wouldn't Die"; but in March of 1945, an enemy dive-bomber attack
started a chain reaction as the USS Franklin's own bombs began to tear
the ship apart with explosions. The resulting combat at sea and rescue
became tarnished when surviving crew members were charged with
desertion. A gripping, powerful film, USS Franklin: Honor Restored is
especially recommended for naval military history collections and
public library DVD shelves. 72 min.
