Peace Is Possible: The Life and Message of Prem Rawat (2007)
Peace Is Possible is the first full and complete story of
Prem Rawat. It documents his extraordinary life, from growing up with a
father who was a revered master, to the day he first addressed audiences at
age three, to being discovered by hippies at his home by the Himalayan
foothills when he was a child, to his dramatic arrival in the West at
thirteen, to today. When Prem Rawat was six years old, his father and
beloved teacher showed him a special gift, a practical means to discover a
world of peace within him. When he was eight, his father passed away, and he
accepted the responsibility of spreading the message of peace. He attended
school during the week and addressed audiences in the tens of thousands on
weekends. He has spent the last forty years inspiring millions of people
from all walks of life and offering this same gift to people. Controversy
has not eluded him: he was only eight when the Indian media wrote that he
was a sixty-year-old posing as a child. Few journalists have gone beyond
stereotypes and taken the time to get a real sense of what he offers. While
his message is translated into more than seventy languages, it remains a
little-known secret, spread mostly through word of mouth. This book lifts
the veil on Prem Rawat--the man, his life, his message.

The Loved Dog: The Playful, Nonaggressive Way to Teach Your Dog Good Behavior
Every dog owner must make a choice: Do you want a fearful and submissive
pet, or do you want a happy, joyful, and well-mannered member of the family?
Tamar Geller's mission in life is to teach her cruelty-free method of "life
coaching" for dogs and their people. Her revolutionary play-training uses
mutual understanding and respect -- and puts an end to outdated methods that
rely on physical exhaustion, choke chains, prong collars, dominance
rollovers, or stressful aggression of any kind.
A former Israeli intelligence officer who witnessed the horrors of military
dog training methods, Tamar went on to observe wolves in the wild. She
discovered that wolves educate and socialize their cubs with games, bonding,
and body language, not dominance or punishment. As a result, she developed
teaching systems that address a dog's authentic nature, part wolflike and
part toddlerlike. Learning can be a positive experience that dogs enjoy and
look forward to, and we can actually make it fun for our dogs to listen to
us and behave as we want them to.
Tamar's insights have brought dog training into the twenty-first century,
and her groundbreaking techniques have won the approval of the Humane
Society of the United States, for which she is a longtime advisor. Her
celebrity clients include Oprah Winfrey, Ben Affleck, Courteney Cox-Arquette,
Owen Wilson, and the Osbournes, and she has appeared as an expert on the
Today show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Animal Planet, and more.
In The Loved Dog, Tamar gives you all the instruction, insights, and tips
you need to teach your dog good manners, as well as to troubleshoot specific
problems and unwanted behaviors. She helps you and your dog learn a common
language, resulting in a loving, respectful relationship that will bring you
years of joy and companionship. Tamar's play-training approach is so gentle,
even children can get involved.
Whether you use Tamar's methods to raise a puppy or teach an old dog new
tricks, you'll love The Loved Dog.
Up and Running: The Jami Goldman Story (2001) by Jami Goldman
Meet tall, beautiful Jami Goldman: world-class athlete, Adidas
spokes-person, motivational speaker -- and double amputee. More than a
decade ago, a wrong turn on a back road during a blizzard resulted in a
terrifying fight for her life. Now for the first time, Jami recounts her
gripping story of being trapped in the snow for eleven endless days, the
grievous loss of her legs, and the fortitude it has taken to not only walk
again but run like the wind -- all the way to freedom.
On December 23, 1987, nineteen-year-old Jami Goldman and her friend Lisa
Barzano headed home from a ski trip in Purgatory, Colorado, never
imagining they would end up in a freezing hell on a back road that the
state of Arizona had closed without checking for travelers in distress.
The girls' car battery died during that first long night, stranding them
in below-zero temperatures. With only a cinnamon roll and a six-pack of
frozen Diet Pepsi, the next ten days became an exercise in survival,
testing their faith and courage even after they were rescued -- when
Jami's legs and feet were deemed beyond saving.
Wise, forthright, and astonishing, Up and Running follows Jami's
global journey from loss to recovery. Her story, which often reads like a
compelling mystery, features her supportive family and friends, a
devastating court case, her passionate relationship with the man she
married, and finally, her triumph over inconceivably fearful obstacles. In
the end, Up and Running shows us all how to use adversity as a
stepping-stone -- leading us to heights we previously considered out of
reach and beyond our wildest dreams.

Somebody to Love? (1998) by Grace Slick
She has been called rock and roll's original female outlaw, as
famous for her bad behaviour as for her haunting singing voice. From White
Rabbit and Somebody to Love to Sarah and Miracles, the songs she performed
became the anthems of a generation. Whether describing her antics at the
White House with Abbie Hoffman or the unforgettable experience that was
Woodstock, Slick's recollections have the same rich imagery found in her
lyrics. In this provocative narrative, readers will discover the many
sides of Grace Slick: as artistic pioneer; she records songs with Jerry
Garcia and David Crosby; as practitioner of freedom and rebellion; she
beds Jim Morrison and gets arrested for DUI on three separate occasions;
without actually being in a car; and as a loving mother to actress China
Kantner; she tries to balance casual friendship with parental wisdom.
Through the unflinching eye of a survivor, this no-holds-barred memoir
brings to life the people and spirit that defined a quarter-century of
American pop culture.In her 25-year career as a musician, Grace Slick
charted dozens of hits and sold millions of albums; Jefferson Airplane
(1965-1972) hit #3 on the Billboard charts with Surrealistic Pillow, and
Jefferson Starship (1974-1989) charted four #1 singles. Includes one
4-page colour photo insert.
