Book Summary:

A sexy and witty memoir about men, music and misadventures. London-based journalist and music critic Jane Cornwell has always thrown herself head and heart first - along with everything else - into relationships. A fascination for other cultures, and the music and men of other cultures, has resulted in adventures as audacious and comic as they are enlightening and erotic. Travelling the world in search of love, great music and good stories, Cornwell collects relationships the way the rest of us pick up souvenir tea towels or snow domes. She writes of the young Greek bartender on Skyros during the island's bacchanalian goat festival; the Jamaican gangster who got her stoned on a beach cliff top in Negril; the Congolese ex-con in Paris who wooed her with perfume and lingerie; the young Afro-Cuban dancer in Santiago de Cuba who persuaded her to buy him jeans, trainers and a mobile phone; her nearly romp with a security guard in a Colombian love hotel, and many, many more... This is also one woman's journey through music. From acid-house raves in London to salsa in Cuba, from reggae to pan pipes, Sufi trance to Womad, it's a tribute to music's power to heal, inspire and transport. It's a look at rituals and subcultures: Afro-Cuban Santeria. The whirling dervishes of Turkey. Congolese sapeurs in Paris. The New Age scene in Los Angeles. Stand-up comedy. Internet dating. A fearless and funny quest for love, connection and a faithful man who can dance, THE WHIRL is a truly sexy memoir for the adventurer in all of us.

Book Summary:

When travel journalist Sophie Campbell squeezed into heels and a hat to investigate the English social season, she got more than she bargained for. Why, she wondered, were events such as the Chelsea Flower Show, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Derby at Epsom, Royal Ascot, the Henley Royal Regatta, Wimbledon Fortnight and Glorious Goodwood so formal, so fashionable and so famous? Her hectic and sometimes hilarious journey through the English summer proved as exotic as any tribal rite of passage as she swam the River Thames in the dark, partied with owners and trainers at Ascot, camped out for Wimbledon, joined Irish Travellers at The Derby, infiltrated the parents’ stand at the Eton v Harrow cricket match and got caught using a mobile in the Stewards’ Enclosure at Henley. En route she found a fascinating and surprisingly complex social structure dating back to the time of the Stuart monarchs and involving fashion, food, art and the marriage market. The English summer will never be the same again.

Book Summary:

Generation TreX: My Thoughts is a journal recounting the personal experiences and insights of a young man while he plans a 27-month non-motorized trek of service throughout America. 1/24/00 - What will become of this quest? Will anyone care? I don't have an answer for these questions and I'm not sure I really want to. To be honest, I'm feeling a little tired of this idealistic crusade. I have no desire to make it a big hoopla event. I've been writing that the success of the Trek depends upon my committment to the principles and not the attention it recieves. In reality, however, I have been living the opposite. I have gotten so focused on the image and organization of the Trek that I have stopped simply doing it. This Trek is about exemplifying certain qualities in life, not getting on a TV show. It is about having the courage to display an example for others to follow. I don't have control of its scale (how many people hear about it), I just have control of its success ( living its principles regardless of the circumstances). If I make it home it will be nothing short of a miracle. I don't know if I will complete the goal of the 10,350 mile Trek. I do know that I believe in its mission and have to try. I may set out on the Trek, but it is the support team and the people I meet along the way that will bring me home.

By correlating the results of computed tomography with these vivid descriptive images, readers will be able to memorize typical and often pathognomonic patterns of disease more quickly and more easily. This book will be of value for both radiology residents and more experienced radiologists.

Book Summary:

This novel from the author of Around the World in Eighty Days and Journey to the Center of the Earth captures the terror and tragedy of a shipwreck. This 1875 novel portrays in devastating detail the final voyage of a British sailing ship, the Chancellor, in the form of a diary written by one of its passengers, J. R. Kazallon. Carrying eight travelers and twenty crew members, the Chancellor sets sail from Charleston, South Carolina. Nearly a month into its voyage, a fire breaks out in the cargo hold, initiating a tragic chain of events that will ultimately sink the ship and leave the survivors adrift on a raft in shark-infested waters. “Verne in all wrote 55 novels and many of them predicted aspects of the world and science as it exists today. Other novels included describing space travel, floating cities, lost islands and more. Many of his themes and plots have become major influences on generations of authors and screenwriters ever since. If you have not read one of his books, find one of these or one of the fifty plus novels and give him a few hours of your time. You will find the escape into the mind of one of the ‘Fathers of Science Fiction’ a worthwhile endeavor.” —Times News Online

Book Summary:

Shame you left me to the nightmares of a dark room in an attic. you left me to the shadows of a ghost I could not see. you left me there to shiver and to crouch in silent places when all the world Id ever known had gone away from me. you left me with a memory and the image of your face. you left me with the fear of death that I could not erase. you left me when I needed you when I was only three when all the world Id ever known had gone away from me. you left me without warning without telling me good-bye. you left me without saying that you loved me when I cried. you left me in the shadows of a child I could not find when all the world Id ever known had left me far behind. you left me for a shot of booze a line of coke but more you left me in the dark of night when I was only four. you left me by myself to find a way to stop the fear, when all I ever wanted was for you to be so near. and now Im standing oh so tall so daring and so proud that I have made myself a world where you are not allowed. a world that is free of pain where little children play against the dark room shadows of a ghost I cannot name.
