Being the best in a field you hate: what a paradox! Yet Andre Agassi, a world-renowned tennis player until his retirement in 2006, does not like tennis. That hasn't stopped him from excelling: he has won the biggest tournaments, such as the Grand Slam and Davis Cup. In Open, his autobiography published in 2009, but also in various articles and interviews, he reveals why he chose tennis anyway and how happy he was despite everything.

سأضع في اعتباري في هذه السيرة الذاتية أني أتحدث إليكم من وراء القبر.. وأني سوف أكون في عداد الأموات حين يصدر هذا الكتاب.. لقد بدا لي أنه يمكنني أن أتحدث بمطلق الصراحة والحرية– كما لو كنت أكتب رسالة غرامية– في حال تأكد لي أنّ ما سأكتبه لن تقع عليه عين إلا بعد وفاتي وتحرري من قيود هذه الدنيا.

Author: Mark Stibbe
Publisher: Monarch Books
Why we may be forgiven--but are not yet free In January 2009, Dr. Mark Stibbe left his role as the senior leader of a highly successful Anglican congregation. Taking a big step of faith, he founded a ministry called The Father's House, dedicated to taking the Father's love to the fatherless and bringing an end to the global pandemic of fatherlessness. Mark took this risk because he is convinced that our society has been deeply damaged by absent or brutal fathers. The churches can offer a solution--a healing relationship with our Heavenly Father--but many Christians have been poorly fathered and are bound by the legacy of this wound. As long as believers are restricted by the chains of their past, their churches will not be a part of the solution to fatherlessness; they will be a part of the problem. "The whole planet is waiting for Christian believers to rise up as the adopted sons and daughters of Abba, Father." I Am Your Father is designed to help free Christians from their father wounds, so that they are then capable of playing their part in healing our fatherless world. In part 1, Mark takes a detailed look at fatherlessness. He describes the different ways in which fathers can hurt their children and the ensuing toxic results. In part 2, he goes deeper, defining the wound as "the orphan heart" and describing the main symptoms of this condition in peoples' lives. In part 3, he shows how Christians can find true healing through experiencing the spirit of adoption and by using seven keys to freedom. Mark uses his own story of being orphaned and adopted as the backdrop to this teaching.

The geopolitics of empire had already prepared me for this...coloniality constructs outsides and insides—worlds to be chosen, disturbed, interpreted, and navigated—in order to live something like a real self. Internationally acclaimed poet and novelist Dionne Brand reflects on her early reading of colonial literature and how it makes Black being inanimate. She explores her encounters with colonial, imperialist, and racist tropes; the ways that practices of reading and writing are shaped by those narrative structures; and the challenges of writing a narrative of Black life that attends to its own expression and its own consciousness.

Author: Jack London
Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing Inc.
Category: Biography & Autobiography
Jack London has been a bestselling author for over one hundred years. In his short life (1876–1916), he wrote twenty-five novels, and dozens of short stories, plays, and essays. Today he is recognized as a forerunner of such literary giants as Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, and Jack Kerouac. Author of a number of well-known, to say nothing of well-loved, stories in our literary canon (White Fang, The Call of the Wild, and The Sea Wolf, to name just three), London also worked as a day laborer, Alaskan gold rush prospector, and seaman. He was also an adventurer, journalist, celebrity, polemicist, and drunk. Illustrated throughout with drawings, facsimile pages from his works, and contemporary photographs, many taken by London himself, An Autobiography of Jack London is a revealing portrait of this complicated and fascinating man in his own words, and is largely composed of excerpts from his memoirs: The Road, John Barleycorn, and The Cruise of the Snark. More than a mere biographical summary of a man's life, An Autobiography of Jack London aims to give the reader real insight into the character and personality of this uniquely American literary icon.

During the country’s partition in August 1947, I, the Author, was a 4 or 5 year old child from a very affluent family. We lived in a village in the Lyallpur district of present-day Pakistan. Upon the country’s partition, my family abandoned all our belongings and migrated empty-handed to free India and to an uncertain future. With no idea of our ultimate destination, we moved from one refugee camp to another, and spent a little over a year en route in several such camps, where the family survived on free dry rations provided by the authorities. We finally settled in Kishan Pura, a village in the Firozpur district of Punjab at the end of October 1948, and struggled every day for survival. After each meal, we did not know how and from where the next meal for our large family would come, and this struggle continued for over a year.

Author: Leopold Infeld
Publisher: American Mathematical Soc.
Leopold Infeld was one of the nine eminent scientists who, together with Albert Einstein, signed Bertrand Russell's famous letter warning that in this nuclear age, only a ban on war itself could save this planet (July, 1955). Infeld was born in the Jewish ghetto of Cracow, Poland in 1898, and this autobiography contains a vivid description of this long-since-vanished world. He was assistant to and then a scientific collaborator with Albert Einstein at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, NJ (1936-1938), and this collaboration continued for twelve years while Infeld was at the University of Toronto. In 1938 he wrote a book together with Albert Einstein that became a number one bestseller, The Evolution of Physics. Infeld was lecturer and then Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Toronto from 1938--1950. From 1945-1950 he gave many lectures all over Canada on the elementary physics of the atom bomb, warning that Russia would soon have the bomb and urging that the short period of U.S. monopoly be used constructively, for peace. In 1950 he left Canada to become Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Warsaw as well as the founding director of the Institute of Theoretical Physics at that university, where he remained until 1967, the year before he died.
