“The Hike just works. It’s like early, good Chuck Palahniuk. . . . Magary underhands a twist in at the end that hits you like a sharp jab at the bell. . . . It’s just that good.” —NPR.org “A page-turner. . . . Inventive, funny. . . . Quietly profound and touching.”—BoingBoing From the author of The Postmortal, a fantasy saga unlike any you’ve read before, weaving elements of folk tales and video games into a riveting, unforgettable adventure of what a man will endure to return to his family When Ben, a suburban family man, takes a business trip to rural Pennsylvania, he decides to spend the afternoon before his dinner meeting on a short hike. Once he sets out into the woods behind his hotel, he quickly comes to realize that the path he has chosen cannot be given up easily. With no choice but to move forward, Ben finds himself falling deeper and deeper into a world of man-eating giants, bizarre demons, and colossal insects. On a quest of epic, life-or-death proportions, Ben finds help comes in some of the most unexpected forms, including a profane crustacean and a variety of magical objects, tools, and potions. Desperate to return to his family, Ben is determined to track down the “Producer,” the creator of the world in which he is being held hostage and the only one who can free him from the path. At once bitingly funny and emotionally absorbing, Magary’s novel is a remarkably unique addition to the contemporary fantasy genre, one that draws as easily from the world of classic folk tales as it does from video games. In The Hike, Magary takes readers on a daring odyssey away from our day-to-day grind and transports them into an enthralling world propelled by heart, imagination, and survival. From the Hardcover edition.

Freddy, Phil and Don are three grumpy old men, travelling at various speeds in the slow lane of retirement, at a loss to understand the mad modern world around them. Their chosen method of escape from all this is a shared weekly hike in the Peak District, come gale, hail, snow or torrential rain. They pass the time bumping into colourful and eccentric locals, but their real passion is bickering among themselves. Not only about the right path to take, but also about where they're all going at the fag end of life. Phil likes to dash up hills trying to beat his personal best, while Freddy plots how to sabotage him - teasing him at leisure and asking deep and difficult questions. Stuck in the middle, Don's only ambition is to stop the squabbling getting out of hand long enough to find a nice pub for lunch. As warm as the wind is cold, as dry as the lashing rain is wet, The Hike is a hilarious tale of bum-warmers, crayfish-fanciers, East German Trabant enthusiasts, bodger philosophers, sticky ginger cake, gorgeous countryside and the subtle art of 'onedownmanship'.

"Effective leadership starts on the inside. If you don't know and accept yourself for who you are, how can you encourage and help others to be their best? Read The Hike and learn this important lesson of forgiveness and personal growth, and in the process, improve your relationships with everyone whose lives you touch." - Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute Manager(r) and Lead with LUV Stuart has the perfect life. However, just below the crumbling facade, he is steeped in guilt and shame. His life is a disaster and is about to explode. His world unravels as the burden of living a double life becomes too heavy and out of the blue, the Board demands his resignation. The prospect of sharing the news of his unemployment with his wife is more than he can take and suicidal thoughts become entrenched in his mind. He decides the best thing to do is to end it all, but his friend Abe interrupts his disastrous scheme. Every year Abe and Stuart plan an adventurous weekend. This year they'll hike through a range of mountains Stuart has never experienced and he decides to use the adventure to find the perfect cliff for an "accidental" fall.

Leaders learn how to address and remove personal and professional constraints in order to build healthy relationships. The results are ethical fortitude, increased productivity and profitability, and unending personal growth. Only then can Individuals be a continual positive influence in other people's lives.
