Hippie Chick: A Tale Of Love, Devotion, & Surrender

Hippie Chick: A Tale of Love, Devotion, & Surrender

Description: Hippie Chick is a fine art, hardcover coffee table book by famed rock and roll photographer Jay Blakesberg. Featuring 445 images shot over the past three decades, Hippie Chick celebrates the unique connection between the vibrant community of free-spirited women who are inspired by, and help inspire, live music. Blakesberg’s visual anthropology beautifully captures the feminine festival and concert archetypes, and the individuals, who have graced the fields and performance halls of America since 1980. Earth mamas and fairy princesses, hula hoopers and whirling dervishes, front row regulars and flower crown makers; the entire tribe of dedicated, music-loving women―their fashion and their passion―is sensuously brought to life through Blakesberg’s artful lens. Iconic rocker and pioneering hippie chick Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane) provides the book’s Foreword, offering a retrospective of women in the original hippie-era music scene. In the Afterword, modern-day hippie chick and freewheeling frontwoman Grace Potter considers how women today carry on the legacy of the demographic. Freelance journalist Edith Johnson contributes the book’s Introduction and chapter essays, entitled “Love,” “Devotion,” and “Surrender.” During the preparation of Hippie Chick, Johnson interviewed 81 different women from the live music scene. Their colorful anecdotes have been distilled into a series of quotes selected to accompany Blakesberg’s images, bringing further dimension to the book’s overarching theme of what it means to be a hippie chick.

"Beyond Myself" By Anita Dennis

For more than 10-years, Dennis and her husband traveled throughout Africa and experienced a side of life that most can only imagine.

The book shares her struggles as she is accepted into the Mende tribe and lives in Vahun with an ‘off and on’ kerosene fridge, swarming termites and pungent elephant meat delivered in the middle of the night. “In addition to entertainment value, I hope that my story provides a forum to share racial and cultural experiences and thus expand understanding between races and cultures,” Dennis said.

Hidden Strengths: Unleashing The Crucial Leadership Skills You Already Have

Hidden Strengths

Description: Books like StrengthsFinder 2.0 have helped leaders discover their strengths--but they stop there. The Sindells argue that focusing only on your best abilities neglects a vital development opportunity. They show how to identify hidden strengths that can be quickly elevated into full strengths with attention and focus. Working mainly on your strengths can ultimately make you weaker, they argue--you need to continually add new skills, not rely on what you're already good at. And while most people assume that means they should try to turn their weaknesses into usable skills, the Sindells say that it takes too much time and effort --the ROI just isn't there. It's in the neglected middle skills, neither strengths nor weaknesses, that the most potent development opportunities lie. They're close enough to being strengths that putting your energy there can offer a powerful payoff. Using assessments, exercises, and case studies, the Sindells help you identify your most promising middle skills and create a plan to turn them into strengths. In today's work environment, not growing and stretching yourself translates into lack of innovation, stagnation, and obsolescence. Relying upon strengths is like relying upon training wheels - at a certain point you need to take them off in order to improve and grow. Visit HiddenStrengths.com to learn more about the book, identifying your "hidden Strengths", and maximizing your potential.

But the outrageous and engaging concepts shared in OMG! are more than a way to deal humorously with children when they express their particular unorthodox views, they can open a difficult dialogue for families about the fanciful thoughts and misconceptions that kids have about God and his or her meaning in our lives. OMG! showcases the differences and yet the similarities that kids of every economic, cultural and religious background share. Funny, poignant and galvanizing with deeply rooted sentiments that will never go out of fashion.

Description: New book from controversial doctor exposes the lethal connection among sugar, toxins, gluten, and heart disease while spotlighting mindless medical practices. It’s undeniable that America’s heart disease burden kills 1 in 4 people every year and is the leading cause of death for most ethnicities in the United States according to the CDC. Renowned cardiologist, controversial osteopath and natural doctor Jack Wolfson, DO, FACC, contends in his new book, The Paleo Cardiologist ( $21.95/$9.99) that poor nutrition and sugar addiction are the true culprits in heart disease with too many people believing that doctor prescribed statins, aspirin and procedures will cure their heart problems – when in fact, they can be deadly. According to Wolfson, who has a thriving practice Phoenix, AZ, the key to good health is informed consent and a “clean” eating lifestyle. This involves cutting out glutens, toxins, sugars, and stress, while increasing protein, sea plants, essential nutrients and our knowledge about our bodies. This is easier than you think. Jack Wolfson D.O., F.A.C.C. is a board certified cardiologist and doctor of osteopathy with more than 35 years as a successful physician in Illinois and Arizona.

Wacky Romantic Comedy: Saving Grapes, By J.T. Lundy

Saving Grapes, a romantic comedy by J.T. Lundy

Description: Award-winning author J.T. Lundy's new romantic comedy, Saving Grapes, is a fun, good-hearted Wodehousian read filled with flawed but colorful characters in a zany tale of wine, women, nuns and villains -- as well as a story of redemption and the power of friendship and loyalty. Thirty-two-year-old Jason Barnes has lost his job and his heart. To make matters (much!) worse, his meddling ex-wife and a wild golf cart fiasco get him in trouble with the law. If can't raise $60,000 to pay a fine in thirty days, he will go to jail. In what looks like a lucky break, Jason suddenly inherits a French vineyard, worth millions -- but there's one catch: if he goes to jail, the vineyard will go to his unscrupulous step-brother. Desperate for cash, Jason travels to France to sell the vineyard, only to discover it's farmed by formidable nuns who must bestow their blessing before he can sell. Complications ensue as he launches a madcap series of dubious schemes and finds himself falling for a French woman. "Although the main character is thirty-two years old, he really is still a child," says Lundy. "He walks a morally fine line throughout the book, eventually redeeming himself in the end. But is his redemption authentic? Readers have come in on both sides of the argument."
