Daring to Rest by Karen Brody

Daring to Rest: Reclaim Your Power with Yoga Nidra Rest Meditation by Karen Brody
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 973 KB
Overview: What if you could reboot your health, tap into your creative self, reclaim your wild nature, lead from your heart―and still feel well rested?

As modern women, we’re taught that we can do it all, have it all, and be it all. While this freedom is beautiful, it’s also exhausting. Being a "worn-out woman" is now so common that we think feeling tired all the time is normal. According to Karen Brody, feeling this exhausted is not normal―and it’s holding us back. In Daring to Rest, Brody comes to the rescue with a 40-day program to help you reclaim rest and access your most powerful, authentic self through yoga nidra, a meditative practice that guides you into one of the deepest states of relaxation imaginable.

It’s time to lie down and begin the journey to waking up

Though it comes from the yogic tradition, yoga nidra doesn’t look like a typical yoga class―the entire practice is done lying down. As you listen to a guided meditation, you’re gently taken into complete inner stillness, effortlessly releasing into a healing state that works on both cellular and subtle body levels.

With Daring to Rest, Brody presents a comprehensive yoga nidra program that unfolds in three phases: rest for physical exhaustion, release for mental and emotional exhaustion, and rise for tuning in to the "life purpose exhaustion" that can come when we’re not in our full power. Each phase includes a downloadable yoga nidra guided meditation and supportive practices.

"By directly accessing your subconscious mind, yoga nidra helps shift the long-held patterns that prevent you from stepping fully into your purpose and power," writes Brody. "Now is the time to break the cycle of fatigue and return to your truest self―the woman you are when you’re not constantly exhausted."

This is a book about yoga nidra, a meditation practice that helps with relaxation, sleep, rest, and healing.

Bad Childhood, Good Life by Dr. Laura Schlessinger

Bad Childhood, Good Life: How to Blossom and Thrive in Spite of an Unhappy Childhood by Dr.Laura Schlessinger
Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.3 Mb
Overview: In this important book, Dr. Laura Schlessinger shows men and women that they can have a Good Life no matter how Bad their Childhood. For each of us, there is a connection between our early family dynamics and experiences and our current attitudes and decisions. Many of the people Dr. Laura has helped did not realize how their histories impacted their adult lives, or how their choices in people, repetitive situations, and decisions — even their emotional reactions — were connected to those early negative experiences, playing a major role in their current unhappiness. For these people and millions like them, too much time is dedicated to repeating the ugly dynamics of childhood in a vain attempt to repair or cope with deep hurt and longings. Too often they use their emotional pain to control others or excuse their own inappropriate and destructive behaviors. Some turn to therapy, only to find themselves trapped in their self-pitying victim mode, robbed of optimism, confidence, and growth. Dr. Laura will help you realize that no matter what circumstances you came from or currently live in, you are ultimately responsible for how you react to them. The acceptance of this basic truth is the source of your power to secure the Good Life you long for. In her signature straightforward style, with real-life examples, Dr. Laura shows you what you will gain by not being satisfied with an identity as a victim, or even as a survivor — but striving to be a victor!

Winged Crusaders by Michael Napier

Winged Crusaders: The Exploits of 14 Squadron RFC & RAF 1915-45 by Michael Napier
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 6 MB
Overview: Formed in 1915 and still operational today, 14 Squadron is one of the RAF’s longest serving and most senior Squadrons. Spending the first thirty years of its operational life in the Middle East, the history of this Squadron is a rich one, but one that, until now, has gone largely unrecorded. Napier effectively brings together all the historical scraps and shreds of stories, which make up the collective history of this unit, from 1915 -1945, a period of great military and social upheaval. The author himself attests to the fact that the work is not merely about the airplanes operational history during this period, or the stark military facts (although enthusiasts of both these areas will find much here); rather, the work concerns itself largely with the people who flew such aircraft. Recording the dramatic trials and tribulations of the people who were 14 Squadron, Napier provides a sympathetic and engaging account of this period of Military History.

Wild Sea: A History of the Southern Ocean by Joy McCann

Wild Sea: A History of the Southern Ocean: A History of the Southern Ocean by Joy McCann
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 19 MB
Overview: "The Southern Ocean is a wild and elusive place, an ocean like no other. With its waters lying between the Antarctic continent and the southern coastlines of Australia, New Zealand, South America, and South Africa, it is the most remote and inaccessible part of the planetary ocean, the only part that flows around Earth unimpeded by any landmass. It is notorious amongst sailors for its tempestuous winds and hazardous fog and ice. Yet it is a difficult ocean to pin down. Its southern boundary, defined by the icy continent of Antarctica, is constantly moving in a seasonal dance of freeze and thaw. To the north, its waters meet and mingle with those of the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific Oceans along a fluid boundary that defies the neat lines of a cartographer."

Who Owns History? by Eric Foner

Who Owns History?: Rethinking the Past in a Changing World by Eric Foner
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 1.2MB
Overview: A thought-provoking new book from one of America’s finest historians

"History," wrote James Baldwin, "does not refer merely, or even principally, to the past. On the contrary, the great force of history comes from the fact that we carry it within us, are unconsciously controlled by it in many ways, and history is literally present in all that we do."

Rarely has Baldwin’s insight been more forcefully confirmed than during the past few decades. History has become a matter of public controversy, as Americans clash over such things as museum presentations, the flying of the Confederate flag, or reparations for slavery. So whose history is being written? Who owns it?

In Who Owns History?, Eric Foner proposes his answer to these and other questions about the historian’s relationship to the world of the past and future. He reconsiders his own earlier ideas and those of the pathbreaking Richard Hofstadter. He also examines international changes during the past two decades-globalization, the collapse of the Soviet Union, the end of apartheid in South Africa-and their effects on historical consciousness. He concludes with considerations of the enduring, but often misunderstood, legacies of slavery, the Civil War, and Reconstruction. This is a provocative, even controversial, study of the reasons we care about history or should.

Watling Street by John Higgs

Watling Street: Travels Through Britain and Its Ever-Present Past by John Higgs
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.8MB
Overview: A journey along one of Britain’s oldest roads, from Dover to Anglesey, in search of the hidden history that makes us who we are today.

‘A bravura piece of writing – Bill Bryson on acid’ Tom Holland

Long ago a path was created by the passage of feet tramping through endless forests. Gradually that path became a track, and the track became a road. It connected the White Cliffs of Dover to the Druid groves of the Welsh island of Anglesey, across a land that was first called Albion then Britain, Mercia and eventually England and Wales. Armies from Rome arrived and straightened this 444 kilometres of meandering track, which in the Dark Ages gained the name Watling Street. Today, this ancient road goes by many different names: the A2, the A5 and the M6 Toll. It is a palimpsest that is always being rewritten.

Watling Street is a road of witches and ghosts, of queens and highwaymen, of history and myth, of Chaucer, Dickens and James Bond. Along this route Boudicca met her end, the Battle of Bosworth changed royal history, Bletchley Park code breakers cracked Nazi transmissions and Capability Brown remodelled the English landscape.

Threads and Traces: True False Fictive by Carlo Ginzburg

Threads and Traces: True False Fictive by Carlo Ginzburg
Requirements: .PDF reader, 6.3 Mb
Overview: Carlo Ginzburg’s brilliant and timely new essay collection takes a bold stand against naive positivism and allegedly sophisticated neo-skepticism. It looks deeply into questions raised by decades of post-structuralism: What constitutes historical truth? How do we draw a boundary between truth and fiction? What is the relationship between history and memory? How do we grapple with the historical conventions that inform, in different ways, all written documents? In his answers, Ginzburg peels away layers of subsequent readings and interpretations that envelop every text to make a larger argument about history and fiction. Interwoven with compelling autobiographical references, Threads and Traces bears moving witness to Ginzburg’s life as a European Jew, the abiding strength of his scholarship, and his deep engagement with the historian’s craft.

The Slow Burning Fuse by John Quail +

The Slow Burning Fuse: The Lost History of the British Anarchists (Freedom) by John Quail, Constance Bantman, Nick Heath
Requirements: EPUB Reader 4 MB
Overview: In the accounts of the radical movements that have shaped our history, anarchism has received a raw deal. Its visions and aims have been distorted and misunderstood, its achievements forgotten. John Quail, in this first major work, shows a history largely obscured and rewritten following 1919 and the triumph of Leninist communism. The time has arrived to resurrect the works of the early anarchist clubs, their unsung heroes, tumultuous political activities, and searing manifestos so that a truer image of radical dissent and history can be formed. Quail’s story of the anarchists is one of utopias created in imagination and half-realized in practice, of individual fights and movements for freedom and self-expression-a story still being written today.
Genre: Non-Fiction – History
