Deep in the Wave

Bear Woznick, Lou Aronica
Authors:
Bear Woznick, Lou Aronica

In this intimate portrayal of the relationship between surfing and the soul, Bear Woznick shares his deep knowledge of the sport on every page along with his spiritual vision. Readers will be captivated by all the inside surfing information, from learning how a surfboard is made to accompanying the author as he describes catching a monster wave and riding for his life. Bear's portrayal of the beauty and power of the ocean is an inspiring one that truly showcases the profound meaning surfing has had on his life. Instead of standing on the shore with our toes in the surf, Bear takes us on the board - to the deep water - to watch and wait - and, if need be, to paddle hard to survive. The spiritual journey described in DEEP IN THE WAVE is as exciting as the surfing and Bear keeps readers engaged every step of the way. As Bear says, surfers take risks "going deep" into a big wave and we can all "go deep" spiritually on our path to God.

A Good Talk

Daniel Menaker
Authors:
Daniel Menaker

A Good Talk is an analysis of and guide to that most exclusively human of all activities - conversation. Drawing on over forty years of experience in American letters, Menaker pinpoints the factors that drive and enliven every good conversation: the vagaries (and joys) of subtext; the deeper structure and meaning of conversational flow; the subliminal signals that guide our disclosures and confessions; and the countless other hurdles we must clear along the way. Moving beyond self-help musings and 'how to' advice, he has created a stylish, funny and surprising book: a celebration of 'the most excusively human of all activities'.In a time when conversation remains deeply important - for building relationships, for relaxing, even for figuring out who we are - and also increasingly imperiled (with Blackberries and texting increasingly in vogue), CAN WE TALK? is a refreshing celebration of the subtle adventures of a good conversation.

Mad In America

Robert Whitaker
Authors:
Robert Whitaker

Schizophrenics in the United States currently fare worse than patients in the world's poorest countries. In Mad in America , medical journalist Robert Whitaker argues that modern treatments for the severely mentally ill are just old medicine in new bottles, and that we as a society are deeply deluded about their efficacy. The widespread use of lobotomies in the 1920s and 1930s gave way in the 1950s to electroshock and a wave of new drugs. In what is perhaps Whitaker's most damning revelation, Mad in America examines how drug companies in the 1980s and 1990s skewed their studies to prove that new antipsychotic drugs were more effective than the old, while keeping patients in the dark about dangerous side effects. A haunting, deeply compassionate book,now revised with a new introduction, Mad in America raises important questions about our obligations to the mad, the meaning of insanity," and what we value most about the human mind.
