In 2001, Dr Wayne Dyer wrote a book called 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace, based on the most important principles he wanted his children to live by. Serena Dyer, one of those children, has contemplated these ideas throughout her life. 'Don't die with your music still in you' has been the most important principle for Serena: to her, it means that you don't allow yourself to live any life other than the one you were born to live. In this book, Serena sets out to explain what it was like to grow up with spiritual parents. She touches upon all ten of her dad's original secrets, imparting her own experiences with them and detailing how they have affected the way she approaches various situations in life. She shares stories, struggles, and triumphs - and Wayne, in turn, contributes his own perspective. This unique father-daughter collaboration will warm the hearts of all parents ...and inspire anyone who is looking to find the 'music' inside themselves.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Excerpt from Child Stories: Being a Collection of Stories of Child Life for Both Old and Young The Law, as quoted, lays down a fair conduct of life, and one not easy to follow. A I have been fellow to a beggar again and again under circumstances which prevented either of us finding out whether the other was worthy. I have still to be brother to a Prince, though I once came near to kinship with what might have been a veritable King, and was promised the reversion of a Kingdom - army, law-courts, revenue, and policy all complete. But, to-day, I greatly fear that my King is dead, and if I want a crown I must go hunt it for myself. The beginning of everything was in a railway train upon the road to Mhow from Ajmir.

'What Do You Care What Other People Think?' Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"What Do You Care What Other People Think? Further Adventures of a Curious Character" is a captivating collection of reminiscences from freewheeling scientific genius Richard P. Feynman. Richard Feynman - Nobel Laureate, teacher and iconic intellect - possessed an unquenchable thirst for an adventure and an unparalleled gift for telling the extraordinary stories of his life. In this collection of short pieces Feynman describes everything from his love of beauty to college pranks to how his father taught him to think. He takes us behind the scenes of the space shuttle Challenger investigation, where he dramatically revealed the cause of the disaster with a simple experiment. And he tells us of how he met his beloved first wife Arlene, and their brief time together before her death. Sometimes intensely moving, sometimes funny, these writings are infused with Feynman's curiosity and passion for life. "Feynman's voice echoes raw and direct through these pages". ("The New York Times"). "Outrageously gifted, iconoclastic, irrepressible...Richard Feynman still has the capacity to suprise". ("Observer"). "One of the greatest minds of the twentieth century ...he was also stubborn, irreverent, playful, intensely curious and highly original in practically everything he did". ("New York Review of Books"). "If more scientists were like Feynman, the world really would be a better, and better understood, place". ("Independent on Sunday"). Richard P. Feynman (1918-1988) was one of this century's most brilliant theoretical physicists and original thinkers. Feynman's other books, also available in Penguin, include "QED", "Six Easy Pieces", "Six Not-so-Easy Pieces", "Don't You Have Time to Think", "The Pleasure of Finding Things Out", "What Do You Care What Other People Think?" and "The Meaning of it All".

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ONE OF O: THE OPRAH MAGAZINE 'S TEN FAVORITE BOOKS OF THE YEAR NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Harper's Bazaar - St. Louis Post-Dispatch - Publishers Weekly Gloria Steinem-writer, activist, organizer, and inspiring leader-now tells a story she has never told before, a candid account of her life as a traveler, a listener, and a catalyst for change. Includes "Secrets," a new chapter! When people ask me why I still have hope and energy after all these years, I always say: Because I travel. Taking to the road-by which I mean letting the road take you-changed who I thought I was. The road is messy in the way that real life is messy. It leads us out of denial and into reality, out of theory and into practice, out of caution and into action, out of statistics and into stories-in short, out of our heads and into our hearts. Gloria Steinem had an itinerant childhood. When she was a young girl, her father would pack the family in the car every fall and drive across country searching for adventure and trying to make a living. The seeds were planted: Gloria realized that growing up didn't have to mean settling down. And so began a lifetime of travel, of activism and leadership, of listening to people whose voices and ideas would inspire change and revolution. My Life on the Road is the moving, funny, and profound story of Gloria's growth and also the growth of a revolutionary movement for equality-and the story of how surprising encounters on the road shaped both. From her first experience of social activism among women in India to her work as a journalist in the 1960s; from the whirlwind of political campaigns to the founding of Ms. magazine; from the historic 1977 National Women's Conference to her travels through Indian Country-a lifetime spent on the road allowed Gloria to listen and connect deeply with people, to understand that context is everything, and to become part of a movement that would change the world. In prose that is revealing and rich, Gloria reminds us that living in an open, observant, and "on the road" state of mind can make a difference in how we learn, what we do, and how we understand each other. Praise for My Life on the Road "Like Steinem herself, [ My Life on the Road ] is thoughtful and astonishingly humble. It is also filled with a sense of the momentous while offering deeply personal insights into what shaped her." - O: The Oprah Magazine "A lyrical meditation on restlessness and the quest for equity . . . Part of the appeal of My Life is how Steinem, with evocative, melodic prose, conveys the air of discovery and wonder she felt during so many of her journeys. . . . The lessons imparted in Life on the Road offer more than a reminiscence. They are a beacon of hope for the future." - USA Today "A warmly companionable look back at nearly five decades as itinerant feminist organizer and standard-bearer. If you've ever wondered what it might be like to sit down with Ms. Steinem for a casual dinner, this disarmingly intimate book gives a pretty good idea, mixing hard-won pragmatic lessons with more inspirational insights." - The New York Times "Steinem rocks. My Life on the Road abounds with fresh insights and is as populist as can be." - The Boston Globe "In person and in her writing, Steinem exudes a rare combination of calm, humility and honesty about her weaknesses that explains all she has accomplished." - Jezebel

Author Elisabeth K. Corcoran thought this past year had been completely self-absorbed, so she focused on fixing something unfixable-so pathetic and sad-that it could have just been thrown out. But as it turns out, she was still thinking deeply, still trying to sort through the other parts of her life, still trying to encourage herself and her children and her friends, still trying to change the world in tiny ways, and still, most wonderfully, looking and reaching for Jesus in all of it. "The Corner of Broken and Love" is about the rest of her life in the middle of a really hard season. You see, she has been so broken the past several years-more than the average girl, she thought. But here's what she believes deep down into her bones: she is absolutely convinced that her best life stories come from the point where her brokenness is covered over by God's love. So enjoy a few of these stories and take courage that, no matter your current life circumstances, you and God can still create beautiful stories of your own, at the corner of broken and love.

Robert Capa, Photographs Aperture

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The life of the man who, in the course of covering five wars, was for nearly two decades the world's most famous war photographer. Almost alone, he practically invented the art of combat photography and set the extremely high standard that others in the field still must meet. Capa's life could not have been more glamorous and exciting if it had been scripted in Hollywood. When he was in his early 20s, he took what is still one of the best known of all war pictures: a Loyalist soldier in Spain at the moment he is hit by an enemy bullet and is falling into death. Capa went on to cover the Japanese invasion of China, WW II, fighting in Israel, and the French war in Indochina. He got his many great pictures because he took incredible risks; he told other photographers that if their war photos were not good enough, it was because they had not been close enough to the fighting. Born in Budapest in 1913 as Endre Friedman, into a Jewish family, at age 17 he was forced to leave his family after he was arrested during a crackdown on liberals by the right-wing government. He never again had a home, but lived mostly in hotel rooms. He owned a wardrobe of good clothes and cameras, but all his life had practically no other material possessions. He was essentially a nomad, obsessed by his art. He was everything a Hollywood producer could ask for, a tough, courageous man in war, but sentimental over its victims, tender with women, hard-living, hard-drinking, charismatic, full of Hungarian charm, lots of fun and nearly always surrounded by friends, no matter where he found himself. Among them: Hemingway, Steinbeck, John Huston, Irwin Shaw, Hedy Lamarr. He was nearly always accompanied by beautiful women. He had an affair with Ingrid Bergman, and his biographer credits Capa with changing the star's life. She wanted to marry him; he refused. Irresponsible with money and time, a gambler who was forever borrowing money (and taking forever to repay it), Capa was a congenital fibber who embroidered and constantly changed the stories of his life and his wartime exploits. He was a charming rogue whom his friends, competitors and business associates found irresistible. Explaining the secret of his success, he would say: "It isn't enough to have talent. You have to be Hungarian, too." He was killed by a landmine in 1954, while covering the French in Indochina. A strong biography of a man who led a fascinating and influential life. The reader also learns much about the development of photo journalism from its beginnings in the late 1920's and early '30's. (Kirkus Reviews)
