    Willpower & Grace: Mile High is a fitness DVD hosted by Stacey Lei
    Krauss, who firmly believes "You wouldn't do push ups with your arm in
    a cast so why would you workout with your foot stuck in a sneaker?"
    Her barefoot workout brings her high-energy fitness class home to the
    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
    training. The program consists of 4 min. of footwork, 7 min. of warm-
    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.
