The book starts from the observation that humans are very different from the other primates. Why are we naked? Why do we speak? Why do we walk upright? Fifty years ago, in 1960, marine biologist Sir Alister Hardy tried to answer this when he announced his so-called aquatic hypothesis: human ancestors did not live in dry savannahs as traditional anthropology assumes, but have adapted to live at the edge between land and water, gathering both terrestrial and aquatic foods. This eBook is an up-to-date collection of the views of the most important protagonists of this long-neglected theory of huma.

Michael Jacobs is a pioneer in the development of psychodynamic counselling. While his writing is praised for its lucidity in explaining difficult concepts, and as well illustrated with case examples from his own work, he has rarely said much about his own history as a psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor. In this personal account, concerned mainly with both his professional life as a therapist, writer and teacher and with the developments of counselling generally in Britain, in which he has played a major part, Jacobs presents his own past. It is one that surprisingly for so experienced a therapist, started with no formal training, but which has gone on to be an influence on the training of hundreds of counsellors and therapists. Jacobs traces the development of BACP and UKCP and his part in the formation of both organizations, the development of training in counselling in Britain, much of which with regard to psychodynamic counselling was pioneered by him, and finally his writing and teaching career. The book concludes with a critique of the present state of counselling and psychotherapy in Britain today.

Learn what you never knew. Face what you were afraid of. Laugh, cry, yell and wonder how a book can know so much about you. Is it possible that YOU could be better off single? Tammy Bleck found herself single after 25 years of marriage; in her fifties, her daughter off to college, broke and unemployed, and the cat and the dog to feed. Not exactly her life's plan. Born and raised in Los Angeles, an only child to a single mother, she grew up in the seedy side of the city and learned quickly how to survive. Never acquiring a college degree, Tammy has gone on to receive a Certificate of Commendation from the Mayor of Los Angeles, host a weekly talk radio program, produce a real estate television show, own a successful earthquake survival company, as well as become the co-founder of a property management company which grew to be one of the largest in Southern California. This latest life circumstance has spawned yet another career: author and public speaker.

“Writing about yourself is a funny business…But in a project like this, the writer has made one promise, to show the reader his mind. In these pages, I’ve tried to do this.” —Bruce Springsteen, from the pages of Born to Run In 2009, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performed at the Super Bowl’s halftime show. The experience was so exhilarating that Bruce decided to write about it. That’s how this extraordinary autobiography began. Over the past seven years, Bruce Springsteen has privately devoted himself to writing the story of his life, bringing to these pages the same honesty, humor, and originality found in his songs. He describes growing up Catholic in Freehold, New Jersey, amid the poetry, danger, and darkness that fueled his imagination, leading up to the moment he refers to as “The Big Bang”: seeing Elvis Presley’s debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. With disarming candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work, and shows us why the song “Born to Run” reveals more than we previously realized. Born to Run will be revelatory for anyone who has ever enjoyed Bruce Springsteen, but this book is much more than a legendary rock star’s memoir. This is a book for workers and dreamers, parents and children, lovers and loners, artists, freaks, or anyone who has ever wanted to be baptized in the holy river of rock and roll. Rarely has a performer told his own story with such force and sweep. Like many of his songs (“Thunder Road,” “Badlands,” “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” “The River,” “Born in the U.S.A.,” “The Rising,” and “The Ghost of Tom Joad,” to name just a few), Bruce Springsteen’s autobiography is written with the lyricism of a singular songwriter and the wisdom of a man who has thought deeply about his experiences.

Mirela Roznoveanus Life on the Run is both a haunting novel and an essential historical and human document. As a novel, it captures the visceral experience of immigration and exile like no other book, fiction or nonfiction. It is fascinating to read that to lose ones mother tongue is to suffer the amputation of a vital organ and that adapting to a strange culture changes the entire body. Using a light touch of magical realism, Roznoveanu vividly evokes the ancient Romanian culture she comes fromrich with magic, portent, and enigmaand its poisoning by Communism. She also gives us a fresh view of the dynamic, jarring culture of America, which both attracts and punishes the protagonist, infusing her body with a strange energy. As a document, this novel incorporates the authors journals from the period immediately following Romanias 1989 revolutionbetter termed an internecine coup dtat. By preserving and publishing this record, Roznoveanu has saved from oblivion the struggle of democratic activists, artists, and journalists whose hopes for a free Romania surged with Ceausescus fall but were brutally crushed. Life on the Run was suppressed in Romania, and little is known in the West of this critical period in which ruling communists changed their skin without ever releasing their grip on power. Scholarly studies might reach few, but this novel/memoir brings that human tragedy to life. Roznoveanu lived it and still lives its consequencesas, unknowingly, do we all. Annie Gottlieb Annie Gottlieb is a New Yorkbased author, critic, and blogger whose work has appeared in the New York Times, the Nation, O, the Oprah Magazine, and other national publications. She is the author or coauthor of several books, including Do You Believe in Magic? Bringing the Sixties Back Home, Wishcraft: How to Get What You Really Want, and The Cube: Keep the Secret.

For Abigail Chiswell, the Colne river front in Colchester, Essex is a second home. With its own sights and sounds - of crowded quaysides, fishing smacks and packed oyster barrels - it means more to her than all the lofty rooms and comforts of her father's home. When she falls for local fisherman Matthew Bateman, Abigail's family loyalty is stretched to breaking point. While Hiltop House represents the pinnacle of her father's wealth and success, for Abigail its very luxury keeps her from the life - and the man - she loves. She followed her heart and gave up a life of luxury. Will she find a way to thrive in the new and unfamiliar world she's facing?

Dating back to the early traditions of oral storytelling, the short story has evolved through the ages from myths, legends, fairy tales, fables, parables, stories in the Ramayana and Mahabharata, tales in the Panchatantra, the adventure tales of the Odyssey, biblical stories, the Norse sagas and many others. As the oriental tale and Gothic novel gained popularity in the latter half of the eighteenth century, short story began developing in Britain. And by the beginning of nineteenth century, it had highly evolved as a form. This anthology is a compilation of some of the classic short stories of the eighteenth and early nineteenth century, from around the world. Beginning with the realistic stories of Pushkin and Chekov, it includes ‘The Necklace’ by Guy de Maupassant, ‘Eve’s Diary’ by Mark Twain, ‘The “Slapping Sal”’ by Arthur Conan Doyle, ‘The Fly’ by Katherine Mansfield, ‘A Little Cloud’ by James Joyce, ‘White Nights’ by Fyodor Dostoevsky, ‘The Postmaster’ by Rabindranath Tagore and ‘The Gift of Magi’ by O. Henry. “Short stories are tiny windows into other worlds and other minds and other dreams. They are journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner.” – Neil Gaiman “‘What shall I write?’ said Yegor and he dipped his pen in the ink.” – Anton Chekov, At Christmas Time “There was a woman who was beautiful, who started with all the advantages, yet she had no luck.” – D. H. Lawrence, The Rocking-Horse Winner
