The Soul of a Lion Ignatius Pr

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Dietrich von Hildebrand, widely regarded as one of the great Catholic philosophers of the 20th century, is well-known for his numerous books, but, until this present work, not much has been known of his remarkable and inspiring life. Written by his wife, Alice, also a highly respected Catholic thinker, this is a fascinating, moving and, at times, gripping account of a truly great man of the Church who suffered much for the faith.Based on a very long "letter" Dietrich wrote to his wife late in his life, it tells his story from his glorious youth with a unique intellectual and cultural formation, his conversion to Catholisism, his great passion for truth and beauty, his extensive writing on Christian philosophy and theology, and his steadfast, determined opposition to Nazism that made him a marked man who miraculously escaped execution. A powerful biography of a relentless fighter against injustice, a devoted son of the Church, a man who had the "soul of a lion".

Terry Pratchett has earned a place in the hearts of readers the world over with his bestselling Discworld series - but in recent years he has become equally well-known and respected as an outspoken campaigner for causes including Alzheimer's research and animal rights. A Slip of the Keyboard brings together for the first time the finest examples of Pratchett's non fiction writing, both serious and surreal: from musings on mushrooms to what it means to be a writer (and why banana daiquiris are so important); from memories of Granny Pratchett to speculation about Gandalf's love life, and passionate defences of the causes dear to him.With all the humour and humanity that have made his novels so enduringly popular, this collection brings Pratchett out from behind the scenes of the Discworld to speak for himself - man and boy, bibliophile and computer geek, champion of hats, orang-utans and Dignity in Dying.

Confessions of a Park Avenue Plastic Surgeon BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

All that you ever wanted to know - and never imagined - about what goes on behind-the-scenes at one of the world's most prestigious plastic surgeon's office. '"I don't care if I die," she said. "I waited my whole life to look good. I'm not going one more day looking the way I do ...if I'm not happy, nothing else matters.'" What is it that drives women, and men, to the extreme measure of cosmetic surgery? People are popping out for botox in their lunch breaks, face-lifts before job reviews, breast implants before dates, and liposuction before just about any major event. From the living room to the boardroom to the catwalk, even the most successful and beautiful men and women are paying to go under the surgeon's knife. And the obsession just keeps on growing! Cap Lesesne, one of the world's most sought-after and respected cosmetic surgeons, has seen them all. He's worked on queens, models, executives and housewives, turned a man into Elvis, been threatened by a Venezuelan oil magnate whose penis turned black and has been asked to implant breasts onto a transexual's back. He travels around the world, calls royalty and glitterati his friends, and can claim to have both saved and destroyed hundreds of relationships with his life-altering fingers. In this timely part-autobiography, part-expose, Cap reveals what life is like as the fairy-godfather with a scalpel, what it is that drives different people around the world to go under the surgeon's knife, and the secret tell-tale signs of a post-op patient, as well as hundreds of real-life examples of the people he has worked on, from the urbane to the truly bizarre. Cap also reveals what it was that made him choose to take up the profession that is most sneered on in surgical circles and how his choice of profession has altered the way he looks at the world around him. Exciting, revealing and always cutting-edge, CONFESSIONS OF A PARK AVENUE PLASTIC SURGEON puts an astonishing new face on one of the world's fastest growing trends.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

His heart wasn't in it... Dom Niles Malloy has locked his favourite flogger in a drawer and has all-but left the lifestyle, but then Brandy Hess shatters his solitude and shakes up his life, challenging him to fully live again. What you see isn't what you get... Though he was once a respected and well-known Dom, Niles Malloy rarely attends functions at the Den, and he has no interest in ever having another permanent relationship. He satisfies his occasional desire for kink by playing with subs who have no expectations. Professional sub Brandy Hess has known Master Niles for years, and when he invites her to play with him, she accepts. But she's unprepared for the reaction she has to his intense brand of play. In their shared, emotionally intimate moments she sees the weariness in his features, and she has a dangerous and compelling urge to know him better. Experience has taught her to never again settle for less than a man's complete commitment, yet when she runs into him outside their normal setting, neither can deny the potent and pulsing attraction. He's much, much deeper than she imagined, and she soon realises he's everything she wants and doesn't need in a man. As she surrenders to him a second time, Brandy wonders if she's lost her sense of self-preservation. She's attracted to an enigma, a man with an edge, someone as remote as he is demanding, and her life will never be the same...

Showdown at the red lion Jonathan Ball Publishers SA

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'This enthralling saga of crime, passion, and betrayal, is a compelling portrait of one of empire's great, unsung anti-heroes. The book is a scintillating achievement.' - Jean Comaroff, Harvard University Johannesburg was - and is - the Frontier of Money. Within months of its founding, the mining camp was host to organised crime: the African 'Regiment of the Hills' and 'Irish Brigade' bandits. Bars, brothels, boarding houses and hotels oozed testosterone and violence, and the use of fists and guns was commonplace. Beyond the chaos were clear signs of another struggle, one to maintain control, honour and order within the emerging male and mining dominated culture. In the underworld, the dictum of 'honour among thieves', as well as a hatred of informers, testified to attempts at self-regulation. A 'real man' did not take advantage of an opponent by employing underhand tactics. It had to be a 'fair fight' if a man was to be respected. This was the world that 'One-armed Jack' McLoughlin - brigand, soldier, sailor, mercenary, burglar, highwayman and safe-cracker - entered in the early 1890s to become Johannesburg's most infamous 'Irish' anti-hero and social bandit. McLoughlin's infatuation with George Stevenson prompted him to recruit the young Englishman into his gang of safe-crackers but 'Stevo' was a man with a past and primed for personal and professional betrayal. It was a deadly mixture. Honour could only be retrieved through a Showdown at the Red Lion.

Lavoisier University of Pennsylvania Press

On the day following the guillotining of Antoine Laurent Lavoisier, mathematician Joseph Louis Lagrange lamented the loss of the man commonly considered the father of modern chemistry. "It took them only an instant to cut off that head," he said, "but it is unlikely that a hundred years will suffice to reproduce a similar one." Although he lived only to the age of 51, Lavoisier revolutionized the field of chemistry. He created the first modern table of chemical elements, recognized the role oxygen plays in the rusting of metals, demonstrated that water-previously considered one of the four fundamental elements-is a compound of hydrogen and oxygen, and asserted that the total weights of the products of a chemical reaction must equal the total weights of the reactants. Yet despite his remarkable importance to modern chemistry, Lavoisier's scientific work was more a hobby than a profession. In fact, because he made his living as a tax collector, his scientific work was relegated to early morning and after-dinner hours. Appropriately, the picture Poirier paints of Lavoisier is that of the whole man-not only a scientist but a successful financier, respected economist, and influential administrator as well.

Mayor of Casterbridge Penguin Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A haunting study of guilt and lost love in "Penguin Classics", Thomas Hardy's "The Mayor of Casterbridge" is edited with an introduction and notes by Keith Wilson. In a fit of drunken anger, Michael Henchard sells his wife and baby daughter for five guineas at a country fair. Over the course of the following years, he manages to establish himself as a respected and prosperous pillar of the community of Casterbridge, but behind his success there always lurk the shameful secret of his past and a personality prone to self-destructive pride and temper. Subtitled "A Story of a Man of Character", Hardy's powerful and sympathetic study of the heroic but deeply flawed Henchard is also an intensely dramatic work, tragically played out against the vivid backdrop of a close-knit Dorsetshire town. This edition includes an introduction, chronology of Hardy's life and works, the illustrations for the original serial issue, place names, maps, glossary, full explanatory notes as well as Hardy's prefaces to the 1895 and 1912 editions. Thomas Hardy (1840-1928), born Higher Brockhampton, near Dorchester, originally trained as an architect before earning his living as a writer. Though he saw himself primarily as a poet, Hardy was the author of some of the late eighteenth century's major novels: "The Mayor of Casterbridge" (1886), "Tess of the D'Urbervilles" (1891), "Far from the Madding Crowd" (1874), and "Jude the Obscure" (1895). Amidst the controversy caused by "Jude the Obscure", he turned to the poetry he had been writing all his life. In the next thirty years he published over nine hundred poems and his epic drama in verse, "The Dynasts". If you enjoyed "The Mayor of Casterbridge", you might like George Eliot's "Silas Marner", also available in "Penguin Classics". "The greatest tragic writer among the English novelists". (Virginia Woolf). "Visceral, passionate, anti-hypocrisy, anti-repression...Hardy reaches into our wildest recesses". ("Evening Standard").

Release is the compelling story of a soul's encounter with Destiny and the liberating power of Love. Born of a profound experience, it reveals in deathless words that only love can overcome hatred. Our duty is to let God's Love transform our human love. The more inadequate we feel and the more handicaps we must overcome, the more beautiful the fruit God will bring forth when His Love turns us inside out. This great human document grips the attention and often brings "Release" to those baffled by life and enmeshed in adversity, or seeking a deeper faith grounded in mercy. Dr. George Ritchie, a prominent American M.D. who held positions as President of the Richmond Academy of General Practice, Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry of Towers Hospital, and founder and long-time President of the Universal Youth Corps Inc., certainly held both Release and its author in very high esteem. He often recommended the book to his patients. Speaking of Release in his own volume entitled Ordered to Return (1998), Dr. Ritchie declares, "This book and my own experience with the Christ did more to change my life than any other things." "I was so impressed with the book, I decided if I had to travel halfway around the world to meet this man, I would. I did meet him a year later...His book profoundly changed the life of many others to whom I recommended it." Who was Starr Daily? A force to be reckoned with. A modern Dante who in his teens became a major criminal, moving from crime to crime and jail to jail. As he lay in solitary confinement, near death, the Master, Himself, filled his consciousness with an outpouring of Love. Daily began practicing love in action and embarked on a fascinating spiritual adventure. Released during the Great Depression with only ten dollars in his pocket and a fifth-grade education, he overcame incredible odds and became a respected and well-known Christian author and speaker. He spoke with rare authority and perceptiveness.

At the 1984 Olympics, American Scott Hamilton skated into the history books when he claimed a gold medal in Sarajevo. Beside him the entire time was his coach, Don Laws. A member of the U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame and a U.S. Junior Champion, Laws is one of the most respected and admired ice skating coaches in the world. In addition to Hamilton, Don was the coach of champions Michael Weiss and Patrick Chan. This authorized biography tells the story of Law's exemplary life and chronicles his singular dedication to figure skating. Don Laws: The Life of an Olympic Figure Skating Coach recounts Don's youth, from his childhood in Washington, D.C. to his Junior Men's Figure Skating Championship to his triumphs as a coach on the international stage. Featuring personal interviews with many of his former pupils, this humorous and enlightening biography captures Don's dedication to the sport and to his students. In addition, this book goes behind the scenes of the controversial new judging system-for which Laws was one of only four coaches worldwide to take part in its creation-as well as touches upon the break between Don Laws and his star pupil, Patrick Chan. Including exclusive interviews with Scott Hamilton, Michael Weiss, premier Russian coach Tamara Moskvina, former International Skating Union member Sonia Bianchetti, and current ISU President Ottavio Cinquanta, this book is a one-of-a-kind look at a man who never broke from his beliefs and ideals and never wavered in his love for the sport. A chapter devoted to skating techniques laid out by Laws will be a helpful tool for figure skating coaches; but for the figure skater, and for any fan of the sport, it will be the stories, interviews, photographs, and history that make this book entertaining and inspiring.

Cronkite Harper Collins Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

For decades, Walter Cronkite was known as the most trusted man in America. Millions across the nation welcomed him into their homes, first as a print reporter for the United Press on the front lines of World War II, and later, in the emerging medium of television, as a host of numerous documentary programs and as anchor of the CBS Evening News, from 1962 until his retirement in 1981. Yet this very public figure, undoubtedly the twentieth century's most revered journalist, was a remarkably private man; few know the full story of his life. Drawing on unprecedented access to Cronkite's private papers as well as interviews with his family and friends, Douglas Brinkley now brings this American icon into focus as never before. Brinkley traces Cronkite's story from his roots in Missouri and Texas through the Great Depression, during which he began his career, to World War II, when he gained notice reporting with Allied troops from North Africa, D-day, and the Battle of the Bulge. In 1950, Edward R. Murrow recruited him to work for CBS, where he covered presidential elections, the space program, Vietnam, and the first televised broadcasts of the Olympic Games, as both a reporter and later as an anchor for the evening news. Cronkite was also witness to - and the nation's voice for - many of the most profound moments in modern American history, including the Kennedy assassination, Apollos 11 and 13, Watergate, the Vietnam War, and the Iran hostage crisis. Epic, intimate, and masterfully written, Cronkite is the biography of an extraordinary American life, told by one of our most brilliant and respected historians.
