Long DescriptionFor half a century, Edward Payson Weston was one of the most famous people in the English-speaking world as the first age of international celebrity unfolded. The godfather of the pedestrianism movement - a sport that took the Victorian world by storm - he criss-crossed Britain and America on foot earning fame, fortune and notoriety in an athletic career that saw him complete some of the most amazing endurance feats ever witnessed. The story of a dreamer, schemer and ladies man, who met with presidents and royalty, crooks and knaves, A Man in a Hurry is one man's athletic journey from the Gold Rush to the Jazz Age. With its colourful detail, historical context and readable style, the co-authors have skillfully recreated a vanished world to tell one of the most amazing stories in sporting history and provide an important addition to the sports literature canon.

We upgraded the database quite a bit. We are doing a better job of locating data around the web and for the most part. We have added links from one product to similar products to help you find what you are looking for.

So one thing you will see is that we have more links on the site and more images. We have improved our searching functions to give you more options.

Over the next few days we will be adding pricing information when we can get it for any given product.

We have also started linking more agressivly to Amazon. This is because people keep coming to the site trying to buy products. At first we were all about data with little interest in selling but since people are often trying to buy, we want to make it easier and besides, we make a couple bucks in the process.

We don't want to get in the way of the original goal of providing product and company data, but we want to provide you with as much other information as possible at the same time.
