In Keeping Heart, Dr. Chip Dodd takes us to the benefits of needing well, desiring honestly, longing deeply, and facing unvanquished hope. The five characteristics of the heart are in us to grow us and bless us, but have so often been mistaken for negative experiences that one needs to control rather than utilize. We have been created to live fully in a tragic place. Knowing our hearts and utilizing its gifts help us see who we are created to be so we can do what we are created to do.

"In my search for meaning, if something I happen to do makes me feel deep-down good, perhaps that is meaning enough." --Lawrence W. Fagg, Pauses A collection of worldly insight, Pauses reaches out to readers, regardless of their age or stage in life, through the heartfelt words of author Lawrence W. Fagg. Lawrence has accumulated personal wisdom from meaningful relationships, treasured experiences, and spiritual growth during his over eight decades of life. Lawrence's observations and reflections about living, time, and God began with a distillation of thoughts set down in a series of 15 personal journals over the second half of the author's life. His insights were gained through a 50-year career in nuclear physics, extensive world travel, and researching and writing a collection of books and papers on subjects such as time, science, and religion, and their relationships to one another. The results are as profound and moving as they are simple and accessible. A sample of Lawrence's writings include: * The road to purgatory is paved with questionable intentions. * How frustrating it is to be out-argued by someone who you know is dead wrong but is more eloquent. * Everyone must go through adolescence. It's just that when you are older it takes a little longer. * I believe that the religions can ultimately help science to find its true place in the full mosaic of human culture. Within the pages of this small book, Pauses shares large ideas about science, wisdom, and the fine art of living.

In this deeply considered meditation on aging in Western culture, Jan Baars argues that, in today’s world, living longer does not necessarily mean living better. He contends that there has been an overall loss of respect for aging, to the point that understanding and "dealing with" aging people has become a process focused on the decline of potential and the advance of disease rather than on the accumulation of wisdom and the creation of new skills. To make his case, Baars compares and contrasts the works of such modern-era thinkers as Foucault, Heidegger, and Husserl with the thought of Plato, Aristotle, Sophocles, Cicero, and other Ancient and Stoic philosophers. He shows how people in the classical period—less able to control health hazards—had a far better sense of the provisional nature of living, which led to a philosophical and religious emphasis on cultivating the art of living and the idea of wisdom. This is not to say that modern society’s assessments of aging are insignificant, but they do need to balance an emphasis on the measuring of age with the concept of "living in time." Gerontologists, philosophers, and students will find Baars' discussion to be a powerful, perceptive conversation starter.

Linda Greenlaw hadn't been blue-water fishing for ten years, since the great events chronicled in The Perfect Storm and The Hungry Ocean, when an old friend offered her the captaincy on his boat, Seahawk, for a season of swordfishing. She took the bait, of course, and thus opened a new chapter in a life that had already seen enough adventure for three lifetimes.The Seahawk turns out to be the rustiest of buckets, with sprung, busted, and ancient equipment guaranteed to fail at any critical moment. Life is never dull out on the Grand Banks, and no one is better at capturing the flavor and details of the wild ride that is swordfishing, from the technical complexities of longline fishing and the nuances of reading the weather and waves to the sheer beauty of the open water. The trip is full of surprises, "a bit hardier and saltier than I had hoped for," but none more unexpected than when the boat's lines inadvertently drift across the Canadian border and she lands in jail. Seaworthy is about nature -- human and other; about learning what you can control and what you do when fate takes matters out of your control. It's about how a middle-aged woman who sets a high bar for herself copes with challenge and change and frustration, about the struggle to succeed or fail on your own terms, and above all, about learning how to find your true self when you're caught between land and sea.

It's not all about the money; the key to true riches Leo Tolstoy said, "Nobody knows where the human race is going. The highest wisdom, then, is to know where you are going." Yet many today chase the false rabbits of success: status, luxury, reputation and material possessions. In the quest to "have it all," our lives often lack real meaning and purpose. Beyond Wealth is the antidote. New York Times bestselling author Alexander Green takes things right down to brass tacks: We are here for a short time. Knowledge is limitless. Therefore, the most critical knowledge is not any particular skill but rather wisdom about "how to live." Fortunately, men and women have had several thousand years to think about what it means to live "the good life." And the answers found here, from Plato and Aristotle to Mahatma Gandhi and Stephen Hawking, will both surprise and delight you. Beyond Wealth provides insightful commentary on the most important aspects of our lives: love, work, honor, trust, freedom, death, fear, truth, beauty and other timeless issues. The book is both a thought provoking read and the ideal gift, guaranteed to ennoble, uplift and inspire.

The inside story of one of basketball's most legendary and game-changing figures A New York Times bestseller During his storied career as head coach of the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, Phil Jackson won more championships than any coach in the history of professional sports. Even more important, he succeeded in never wavering from coaching his way, from a place of deep values. Jackson was tagged as the “Zen master” half in jest by sportswriters, but the nickname speaks to an important truth: this is a coach who inspired, not goaded; who led by awakening and challenging the better angels of his players’ nature, not their egos, fear, or greed. This is the story of a preacher’s kid from North Dakota who grew up to be one of the most innovative leaders of our time. In his quest to reinvent himself, Jackson explored everything from humanistic psychology and Native American philosophy to Zen meditation. In the process, he developed a new approach to leadership based on freedom, authenticity, and selfless teamwork that turned the hypercompetitive world of professional sports on its head. In Eleven Rings, Jackson candidly describes how he: • Learned the secrets of mindfulness and team chemistry while playing for the champion New York Knicks in the 1970s • Managed Michael Jordan, the greatest player in the world, and got him to embrace selflessness, even if it meant losing a scoring title • Forged successful teams out of players of varying abilities by getting them to trust one another and perform in sync • Inspired Dennis Rodman and other “uncoachable” personalities to devote themselves to something larger than themselves • Transformed Kobe Bryant from a rebellious teenager into a mature leader of a championship team. Eleven times, Jackson led his teams to the ultimate goal: the NBA championship—six times with the Chicago Bulls and five times with the Los Angeles Lakers. We all know the legendary stars on those teams, or think we do. What Eleven Rings shows us, however, is that when it comes to the most important lessons, we don’t know very much at all. This book is full of revelations: about fascinating personalities and their drive to win; about the wellsprings of motivation and competition at the highest levels; and about what it takes to bring out the best in ourselves and others.

The power of radio was crucial to opening up Australia to the rest of the world. Its potential for communication was recognised very early in this country, both as medium and message, and could not have been more loved and admired than by Bernard Harte, a small boy growing up in Brisbane in the 1920s, who devoted his life to this exciting form of communication. When Radio was the Cat’s Whiskers is more than just a history of radio in Australia, it is about an Australian radio pioneer—technician, broadcaster and master of making-do. Harte has documented the history of radio as he lived it, research and anecdote combined with illustrations from days gone by. Interspersed among a wealth of personal recollections, often highly amusing, he tells of the first long-distance wireless communication in Morse code in 1901, of Melbourne station 3LO’s opening broadcast in 1924 featuring one of Dame Nellie Melba’s ‘farewell performances’, of the pedal wireless that transformed life in the outback, and how early broadcasters simulated the sound of bat on ball in the studio as they provided ‘live’ broadcasts of Test matches.

Philip E. Muskett, former Surgeon Superintendent to the NSW government, wrote in 1893: “...our people live in direct opposition to their semi-tropical environment ... the consumption of butcher’s meat and tea is enormously in excess of any common sense requirements ..” The Art of Living in Australia offers advice for healthy living. In an effort to promote better eating-habits, Muskett presents a carefully researched picture of climate; of the history of cookery instruction in schools; of the value of salads; of problems and methods of management, current in 1893, in the fishing, oyster growing and wine making industries. The book was dedicated with “hope for the development of all the great natural food industries of our country”. Reading it today, we have a measure to show how far we have come.

To live well one must be able to die well and vice versa. Life and death are two faces of the same coin but with a fundamental transformation when one moves from the spiritual dimension to the physical and back to the spiritual. Actually, there is but one thing: Life without beginning and without ending but with two expressions, one on the spiritual plane and the other on the material plane. Today, in the West we find a great paradox: we have made enormous progress at the material, technological level but not at the human and psychological level. One aspect of this paradox is that we do not die well! We are afraid of death, we deny it and seek to postpone it for as long as possible at an enormous human and economic cost. The spiritual tradition always had very substantial cognitive and practical contributions to make to our understanding of life, death, and life after death. The basic objective of this book is to present these contributions and help us die with more dignity and less fear. In fact, this work was written to help you live and die without fear, anxiety, guilt, blame or frustration with an appreciation and gratitude for all our human experiences which include birth, life and death.
