Posted by admin | Posted in Best Sellings, New Releases, Travel-New | Posted on 23-03-2011-05-2008


0061993158 : Big in China: My Unlikely Adventures Raising a Family, Playing the Blues, and Becoming a Star in Beijing
ISBN: 0061993158

Author: Alan Paul

The inspiring story of a man, a family, a band, a foreign country, and a new beginning

When Alan Paul’s wife was offered the job as the Wall Street Journal‘s China bureau chief, he saw it as an amazing opportunity to shake up their increasingly staid suburban New Jersey life. Excited and not a little scared, they packed up their three children—ages two, four, and seven—and headed for adventure and uncertainty in Beijing, China.

Based on his award-winning Wall Street Journal Online column, “The Expat Life,” Big in China explores Paul’s unlikely three-and-a-half-year journey of reinvention in this rapidly developing metropolis. He reveals the challenges that he and his family faced while living in a foreign land, including reaching beyond the expat community, coming to terms with his new role as a stay-at-home dad, and learning to navigate and thrive in an unfamiliar culture.

Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain

Posted by admin | Posted in Entertainment-Books, Nonfiction | Posted on 28-11-2010-05-2008


1439177783 : Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain
ISBN: 1439177783

Author: Portia de Rossi

?I didn?t decide to become anorexic. It snuck up on me disguised as a healthy diet, a professional attitude. Being as thin as possible was a way to make the job of being an actress easier . . .?

Portia de Rossi weighed only 82 pounds when she collapsed on the set of the Hollywood film in which she was playing her first leading role. This should have been the culmination of all her years of hard work?first as a child model in Australia, then as a cast member of one of the hottest shows on American television. On the outside she was thin and blond, glamorous and successful. On the inside, she was literally dying.

In this searing, unflinchingly honest book, Portia de Rossi captures the complex emotional truth of what it is like when food, weight, and body image take priority over every other human impulse or action. She recounts the elaborate rituals around eating that came to dominate hours of every day, from keeping her daily calorie intake below 300 to eating precisely measured amounts of food out of specific bowls and only with certain utensils. When this wasn?t enough, she resorted to purging and compulsive physical exercise, driving her body and spirit to the breaking point.

Even as she rose to fame as a cast member of the hit television shows Ally McBeal and Arrested Development, Portia alternately starved herself and binged, all the while terrified that the truth of her sexuality would be exposed in the tabloids. She reveals the heartache and fear that accompany a life lived in the closet, a sense of isolation that was only magnified by her unrelenting desire to be ever thinner. With the storytelling skills of a great novelist and the eye for detail of a poet, Portia makes transparent as never before the behaviors and emotions of someone living with an eating disorder.

From her lowest point, Portia began the painful climb back to a life of health and honesty, falling in love with and eventually marrying Ellen DeGeneres, and emerging as an outspoken and articulate advocate for gay rights and women?s health issues.

In this remarkable and beautifully written work, Portia shines a bright light on a dark subject. A crucial book for all those who might sometimes feel at war with themselves or their bodies, Unbearable Lightness is a story that inspires hope and nourishes the spirit.

Posted by admin | Posted in Health, Mind & Body | Posted on 28-11-2010-05-2008


140192154X : A Course In Weight Loss 6-CD: 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever
ISBN: 140192154X

Author: Marianne Williamson

6-CD set -?Unabridged Audiobook

?If your ?weighty thinking? does not change, then even if you lose weight you?ll retain an overwhelming subconscious urge to gain it back. It?s less important how quickly you lose weight, and more important how holistically you lose weight; you want your mind, your emotions, and your body to all ?lose weight.? Weight that disappears from your body but not from your soul is simply recycling outward for a while

but is almost certain to return. It?s self-defeating, therefore, to struggle to drop excess weight unless

you are also willing to drop the thought-forms that initially produced it and now hold it in place.?

? Marianne Williamson


What is the connection between spirituality and weight loss? Best-selling author Marianne Williamson is about to answer that question for you in her groundbreaking new audiobook, bringing you 21 spiritual lessons to help you surrender your weight forever. These lessons form a holistic paradigm for weight loss, addressing the spiritual, emotional, and psychological elements involved in what Williamson refers to as ?conscious weight loss.? If you are a food addict, a compulsive eater, or someone who for any reason sees food as the enemy, this book is for you.

A Course in Weight Loss?addresses the true causal root of your weight-loss issues: a place within you where you have?forgotten?your?divine perfection. This?forgetfulness?has confused not only your mind but also your body, making you reach for that which cannot sustain you . . . and reject that which does. As your mind reclaims its spiritual intelligence, your body will reclaim its natural intelligence as well.

The 21 lessons in this audiobook will take you on a deep, sacred journey. One step at a time, you will learn to shift your relationship with yourself?and your body?from one of fear to one of love. And you will begin to integrate the various parts of yourself?mind, body, and spirit?to become, once again, and in all ways, the beautiful and peaceful person you were created to be.

??????? As Williamson states: ?When it comes to your enjoyment of eating, your best days are not behind you but ahead of you!? So get ready to begin a new relationship with food . . . and with yourself.

30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog: The Loved Dog Method

Posted by admin | Posted in Home-Garden-Books, Literature & Fiction | Posted on 28-11-2010-05-2008


1439176701 : 30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog: The Loved Dog Method
ISBN: 1439176701

Author: Tamar Geller

Long known as a dog coach to the stars?her clients include Oprah Winfrey, Ben Affleck, Courteney Cox-Arquette, Owen Wilson, Natalie Portman, and Larry King?Tamar Geller changed the way Americans relate to their dogs with her bestselling book The Loved Dog. Her approach is simple and down-to-earth. Instead of utilizing the negative and often painful feedback of physical dominance, choke chains, and prong collars, Tamar recommends love, play, and mutual respect as the keys to a happy home for dog and human alike.

Now, Tamar makes her Loved Dog? Method accessible for everyone with this day-by-day guide that will lead you through the first thirty days with your new dog?or help you make a fresh start with your current dog. Drawing on her studies of wolves in the wild and basing her method on the principles of child development, Tamar uses an “instincts versus choice” approach that satisfies a dog?s Seven Basic Needs and will result in a pet with good manners.

30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog covers every question commonly asked by people embarking on the momentous journey of dog ownership: why it?s important to choose the appropriate dog for you and your lifestyle, what you can expect from a puppy versus an adult dog, how to introduce your new dog to your home, and how to respond when things don?t go according to plan. Tamar guides you every step of the way, from addressing undesired behaviors in your dog to crate and paper training him to introducing him to other dogs and helping him become relaxed with strangers. Included are important but often overlooked tips about the use of words and body language to communicate, the power of play, and the amazing value of teaching your dog some lighthearted pet tricks.

Along the way, Tamar debunks myths in need of debunking: that dogs are frequently “alpha” by nature and need to be dominated; that discipline is the key to dog training, and that “success” only means getting your dog to do what you want. Instead, she shows how to align your dog’s wishes with your own to create a rich and enduring relationship that works wonderfully for you both.

Gentle, firm, and effective, 30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog will build your relationship with your dog to make every new day together a day of love, joy, and discovery.?

Full Dark, No Stars

Posted by admin | Posted in Mystery-Thrillers-Books, Professional & Technical | Posted on 28-11-2010-05-2008


1439192561 : Full Dark, No Stars
ISBN: 1439192561

Author: Stephen King

“I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger . . .” writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up “1922,” the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

In “Big Driver,” a cozy-mystery writer named Tess encounters the stranger along a back road in Massachusetts when she takes a shortcut home after a book-club engagement. Violated and left for dead, Tess plots a revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger: the one inside herself.

“Fair Extension,” the shortest of these tales, is perhaps the nastiest and certainly the funniest. Making a deal with the devil not only saves Dave Streeter from a fatal cancer but provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment.

When her husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable and she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It?s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.

Like Different Seasons and Four Past Midnight, which generated such enduring films as The Shawshank Redemption and Stand by Me, Full Dark, No Stars proves Stephen King a master of the long story form.
