When we come across a happy narrative, we love imagining ourselves living out that story as the main character, yet, when faced with tales of human pain or suffering, we often awkwardly shy away, offer quick condolences, and say “I Can’t Imagine”. Human nature is to relish success, whimsy, and tales of happy endings. But, by avoiding those “other” stories, the painful and uncomfortable ones, we often miss out on some of life’s most important lessons. I Can’t Imagine is one of those “other” stories that will take readers through a powerful journey about a micro-preemie named Emilia Quinn Sears, who was born during a pandemic, at only 22-weeks-old, weighing just over 1 pound, with the odds of survival stacked against her. Inspired by her parents’ personal journals, passionately written to Baby Emilia, this book will take you on an epic journey of loss, love, and resilience. By the end, you will be able to imagine what it is like to fight for your child’s survival in the NICU, ultimately losing your battle and subsequently watching your world get destroyed. You will also experience the beautiful lessons and raw power of purpose that can arise from some of the worst things anyone can imagine.

Imagine Yourself Well: Better Health through Self-Hypnosis is a remarkable view of hypnotherapy as a scientifically recognized treatment art. Based upon their extensive practice and clinical research in therapeutic hypnotic techniques, the authors have constructed an effective handbook articulating the therapeutic use of hypnosis by depicting word-for-word what transpires during a session. The fascinating series of carefully worded transcripts of hypnotic exercises will enable the reader to correct specific self-destructive habits (e.g., overeating and smoking), common psychological problems (insomnia and various phobias), chronic physical conditions (arthritis, back pain, high blood pressure, and migraine headaches), and performance anxieties (athletics and public speaking). The theory underlying clinical practice, including the key point that all hypnosis involves self-hypnosis, is explained in lay terms, and each exercise is grounded in sound cognitive, behavioral, or psychodynamic principles.

Composé et présenté par Yoko Ono, Imagine John Yoko retrace la genèse de du légendaire album Imagine et recrée le contexte de sa création : les lieux, l'équipe artistique, les créations graphiques et les films, racontés par John et Yoko et par tous ceux qui étaient là. L'ouvrage révèle 80 % de documents et d'images d'archives inédites ; il présente des paroles de chansons, des installations d'art, des entretiens et témoignages exclusifs de Yoko et des nombreux acteurs-clés de l'album – plus de quarante musiciens, ingénieurs son, employés de maison, célébrités, artistes et photographes, tels que Julian Lennon, Klaus Voormann, Alan White, Jim Keltner, David Bailey, Dick Cavett et Sir Michael Parkinson. "Beaucoup de choses ont été écrites autour de la création de la chanson, de l'album et du film Imagine, principalement par des personnes qui n'étaient pas présentes. Je suis ravie qu'aujourd'hui, pour la première fois, autant de participants aient aimablement donné de leur temps pour écrire la vérité, avec leurs propres mots et images." Yoko Ono Lennon En 1970, John Lennon et Yoko Ono ont conçu et enregistré l'album Imagine entre le studio dernier cri de leur villa de campagne, à Tittenhurst Park (Berkshire, Angleterre) et le studio Record Plant de New York. Les paroles de la chanson-titre, inspirées des "event scores" du livre de Yoko Ono, Grapefruit (1964), lui ont valu d'être officiellement reconnue comme co-auteure en juin 2017. Imagine John Yoko raconte l'histoire de John et Yoko, leur vie, leur travail et leur relation, pendant ces années marquées par une intense créativité. L'ouvrage transporte le lecteur dans ces lieux de vie et de travail et met en lumière de précieuses archives : photos, objets phares de l'album, compilations de séquences cinématographiques narratives, cartes, plans et panoramas d'intérieurs, reconstitués dans leurs moindres détails. Chaque donnée est analysée : les lieux, les acteurs clé, la musique et les paroles, les techniques de production ou encore la création de la pochette de l'album – incluant même une explication du procédé artistique de double exposition utilisé sur les polaroids. Les différents chapitres et chansons sont introduits par John et Yoko eux-mêmes ; l'ensemble est enrichi par une préface et des commentaires de Yoko, dont la valeur est inestimable. Un livre-hommage à l'une des plus belles collaborations artistiques du XXe siècle, éternel écho d'un vibrant message de paix.

These artists, heeding the call of Constructivist manifestos to abandon the nonobjective painting and sculpture of the early Russian avant-garde and enter into Soviet industrial production, aimed to work as "artist-engineers" to produce useful objects for everyday life in the new socialist collective." "Kiaer shows how these artists elaborated on the theory of the socialist object-as-comrade in the practice of their art. They broke with the traditional model of the autonomous avant-garde, Kiaer argues, in order to participate more fully in the political project of the Soviet state. She analyzes Constructivism's attempt to develop modernist forms to forge a new comradely relationship between human subjects and the mass-produced objects of modernity."--BOOK JACKET.

Alexis’s long-awaited second novel follows his award-winning Childhood. Set in Ottawa during the Mulroney years, Asylum is André Alexis’s sweeping, edged-in-satire, yet deeply serious tale of intertwined lives and fortunes, of politics and vain ambition, of the building of a magnificent prison, of human fallibility, of the search for refuge, of the impossibility of love, and of finding home. Whether he is taking us into the machinations of a government office or into the mysterious workings of the human heart, Alexis is always alert to the humour and the profound truth of any situation. His cast of characters is eccentric and unforgettable, all recognizable in one way or another as aspects of ourselves or people we know well. At the centre of the story, which covers almost a decade, is a visionary project to build an ideal prison, a perfect metaphor for the purest aspects of artistic ambition and for all that is great and flawed in the world. André Alexis is a true original, one of the most talented and astute writers writing in Canada today. This dazzling novel is filled with tragedy, dry wit, intellectual grist. It is playful, linguistically accomplished, and psychologically profound. Its yearnings constitute the highest level of human concerns and pursuits. Alexis has written The Great Canadian Novel, with a twist.

Theberge places recent technological developments within a broad social and historical perspective to illuminate the changing relationships between musical concepts, styles, and technology.

Describes digital musical instruments, industries that supply and promote them, and the meanings they have for musicians. Winner of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM) Book Award (1997) Recent innovations in musical instrument design are not simply a response to the needs of musicians, writes Paul Théberge; they also have become "a driving force with which musicians must contend." He argues that digital synthesizers, samplers, and sequencers in studio production and in the home have caused musicians to rely increasingly on manufacturers for both the instruments themselves as well as the very sounds and musical patterns that they use to make music. Musical practices have thus become allied with a new type of consumer practice that is altogether different from earlier relationships between musicians and their instruments as a means of production. Théberge places these developments within a broad social and historical perspective that examines the development of the musical instrument industry, particularly the piano industry, the economic and cultural role of musicians' magazines and computer networks, and the fundamental relationships between musical concepts, styles, and technology.
