Robert M. Keating's story is America's story. Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1862 to poor Irish immigrants, he was just 13 when his father died suddenly. A precocious boy with a knack for mechanics, Keating filed his first patent at 22, started his own bicycle company at 28, and at 32 was producing one of the most innovative bicycle lines in the world in a state-of-the-art factory. Along the way he flirted with baseball, briefly playing in the major leagues and patenting the game's rubberized home plate. In early 1901 Keating developed and marketed a ground-breaking motorcycle before either Indian or Harley-Davidson, and later successfully sued both companies for patent infringement. His company also manufactured automobiles beginning in 1898, producing both electric and gasoline powered vehicles. At the time of his death at 59, Keating held 49 patents--everything from bicycle and motorcycle designs to lunch-chairs to a modern flushing device for toilets. This book tells the story of Keating and his Keating Wheel Company, a Gilded Age story of unbridled inventiveness that encapsulates America's transformation into a society that would forever move on wheels.

Even though she was still married to her fifth husband, Tina, an ex-prostitute from Las Vegas, rehearsed for her sixth wedding to a wealthy Maryland businessman, Robert Myers. Myers wanted his wife killed. Divorce was too expensive. Tina had proposed a blood vow. "You marry me and take care of my kids, and I'll have your wife murdered for you." He agreed. This is the true story of the brutal 1979 contract murder of Mary Ruth Myers, the 27-month long investigation of that murder, and the prosecution of the three co-conspirators. It led to the longest murder trial in the history of Maryland. The only plea offer was death in the gas chamber or by lethal injection. After a stunning double-cross by Myers' original attorney, Phillip M. Sutley, Esq., Myers' new attorney, Anton J.S. Keating, Esq. is left to try to salvage a defense and save him from the gas chamber. Myers had actually confessed his guilt to Mr. Keating, so avoiding the death penalty was even more complicated. Keating shares his insights into the tactics, strategies, thought processes and personalities of the participants in the Myers case, and the criminal justice system in Maryland. In addition, treats readers to a glimpse into his own history as a boy growing up in England during and after World War II, and into the lives of his close and colorful family. Finally, through the lens of the sentencing phase of the Myers trial, Keating outlines the history of the death penalty, articulating some of the most poignant and powerful arguments against it. "The function of the criminal law is to protect the law-abiding - not to satiate societies' lust for revenge," testified Father Meyer Tobey, Chaplain for Maryland Death Row inmates. In the end, Anton J.S. Keating, Esq. was himself put on trial, as he suspected he would be from the very beginning.

"All spiritual traditions have a wisdom literature. Alcoholics Anonymous is a spiritual tradition. Its influence and spread in the present century is going to depend on how well each generation of those in recovery assimilate and interiorize the basic wisdom that is enshrined in the Twelve Steps and the Twelve Traditions." --Thomas Keating In this major new work, Father Thomas Keating reflects on the wisdom and legacy of the Alcoholics Anonymous Twelve-Step Method and its connections to, and similarities with, the Christian mystical traditions of centering prayer and Lectio Divina. In conversation with a long-time member of AA meetings, Father Thomas talks insightfully about surrendering to one's Higher Power and the journey that must be undertaken for the healing of the soul to begin.

In the course of numerous workshops and retreats Father Keating is asked many questions regarding contemplative practice. How will it affect my life? Where does it lead us spiritually? What obstacles will I encounter along the way? How does it work? As Keating answers, this book is "an attempt to provide a road map, as it were, for the journay that begins when Centering Prayer is seriously undertaken...for a deepening relationship with God.">
