    A compelling portrait of rock's greatest guitarist at the moment of his ascendance, Stone Free is the first audiobook to focus exclusively on the happiest and most productive period of Jimi Hendrix's life.As it begins in the fall of 1966, he's an under-sung, under-accomplished sideman struggling to survive in New York City. Nine months later, he's the toast of Swinging London, a fashion icon, and the brightest star to step off the stage at the Monterey International Pop Festival. This momentum-building, day-by-day account of this extraordinary transformation offers new details into Jimi's personality, relationships, songwriting, guitar innovations, studio sessions, and record releases. It explores the social changes sweeping the U.K., Hendrix's role in the dawning of "flower power," and the prejudice he faced while fronting the Jimi Hendrix Experience.In addition to featuring the voices of Jimi, his bandmates, and other eyewitnesses, Stone Free draws extensively from contemporary accounts published in English and foreign-language newspapers and music magazines. This celebratory account is a must-listen for Hendrix fans.

  • The Life of General George Monck - For King & Cromwell - cover

    The Life of General George Monck...

    General George Monck is famous for the key role he played in the restoration of the monarchy in 1660.  His actions changed the course of British history, but his statesmanship in the dangerous time between the death of Cromwell and the bloodless return of Charles II distracts attention from his extraordinary career as a soldier and general, admiral, governor and administrator. During the confused, often bloody era of the English Civil Wars and the Protectorate he was one of the great survivors. Peter Reese, in this perceptive new study, follows Monck through his long, varied career, from his impoverished upbringing in the West Country and his military apprenticeship on the Continent, to his experience as a commander on both sides during the civil wars. He distinguished himself on the battlefields of Ireland and Scotland, and as a general-at-sea for both Cromwell and Charles II. His shrewdness and firmness of character, his skill as a leader, his high popularity with his troops and his occasional ruthlessness gained for him a formidable reputation.  On Cromwell's death he was one of the few men in England with the power, personal authority and political skill to secure the restoration of Charles II and to bring to an end twenty years of conflict.

    Fancies Versus Fads

    I have strung these things together on a slight enough thread; but as the things themselves are slight, it is possible that the thread (and the metaphor) may manage to hang together. These notes range over very variegated topics and in many cases were made at very different times. They concern all sorts of things from lady barristers to cave-men, and from psycho-analysis to free verse. Yet they have this amount of unity in their wandering, that they all imply that it is only a more traditional spirit that is truly able to wander. The wild theorists of our time are quite unable to wander. When they talk of making new roads, they are only making new ruts. Each of them is necessarily imprisoned in his own curious cosmos; in other words, he is limited by the very largeness of his own generalization. The explanations of the Marxian must not go outside economics; and the student of Freud is forbidden to forget sex. To see only the fanciful side of these serious sects may seem a very frivolous pleasure—and I will not dispute that these are very frivolous criticisms. I only submit that this frivolity is the last lingering form of freedom.

    “A fascinating real-life voyage through medicine and beyond. . . . Intensely human and readable. Full of hope and wonder. A truly heartwarming page turner.” —Robert Bruce, author of Astral Dynamics and Energy Work 
     
    Medicine, Miracles, and Manifestations is a nonfiction narrative about the surgical career and spiritual quest of neurosurgeon Dr. John L. Turner and his journey into the field of Integral Medicine. During his career as a board-certified surgeon, Dr. Turner’s curiosity drove him to explore nontraditional healing techniques that broadened the scope of recovery for his patients, including energy healing, chanting and meditation (approaches historically found in religious practices), soul travel, and astral projection. In this fascinating book, you will discover: 
     
    • How metaphysical events such as remote viewing, telepathy, consciousness, and life after death are all verifiable manifestations of the way the human brain interfaces with the universal consciousness. 
     
    • That consciousness persists after the death of the physical body 
     
    • That our life is carefully planned before birth but there is an element of free will. 
     
    • That we can interface with a spiritual world and a collective human unconscious. 
     
    “I admire Dr. Turner for having the courage to share his life and truths with us. I truly recommend this book to every health professional and those willing to open their minds and accept the true nature of life. You will be touched by the stories he shares; his book can help you open your mind and become aware of new and exciting aspects of true healing and curing.” —Dr. Bernie Siegel, author of Love, Medicine & Miracles and Prescriptions For Living

    Profiles of pioneering women past and present who’ve shattered glass ceilings from the author of Women of Means and Women Who Launch. Sexism has kept generations of women on the sidelines of history—but in every era, there are women who refuse to sit back in the shadows. Fabulous Female Firsts is a celebration of those women—the role models who proved that with enough daring and tenacity, the impossible can become possible.From the first woman to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor to the first female candidate for US President (it wasn’t Hillary Clinton!) to the first woman to win an Academy Award for Best Director, this collection of biographical profiles celebrates the trailblazers who persisted—in spite of being labeled stubborn, improper, or worse. This book is written in praise of “difficult women” who made the world a better place, and offers the inspiring stories of: Aretha Franklin • Sandra Day O’Connor • Lucy Walker • Sally Ride • Kathryn Bigelow • Misty Copeland • Viola Desmond • Pauli Murray • Emma Gatewood • Brig. Gen. Anna Hays • Junko Tabei • Gertrude Ederle and many more.   “Effervescent stories about diverse groups of female creators, entrepreneurs, and dynamos . . . every page gives the motivation to strive for greatness.” —Becca Anderson, bestselling author of The Book of Awesome Women and Real Life Mindfulnes
