Through first-hand interviews with their closest associates, famous tour-mates and the band themselves, it explores their heartaches and triumphs, their most intense tours and productive hiatuses, their biggest tunes and brightest dreams made stadium-sized reality.

Did you know…? • 36% of Bob Dylan’s songs published between 1961 and 1968 had biblical references, including his 1964 hit “The Times They Are A-Changin.’” • The book of Ecclesiastes has been a great inspiration on popular music including the song “Turn, Turn, Turn” by The Birds, the Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon, and “Desperado,” the 1973 hit by The Eagles, among others. • Paul Simon once advised a young prospective lyricist to raid the Bible for memorable phrases. “Just steal them,” he said, “That’s what they’re there for.” There’s no question that Scripture has influenced music since the first ever song was penned. In Turn! Turn! Turn! author and music connoisseur, Steve Turner, takes an in-depth look at the lyrics and cultural context of 100 of the greatest songs from the 1930s to today to reveal an often overlooked or ignored strand of influence in popular music—the Bible. Indeed, some of the “greats”—including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Bono, Johnny Cash, Sting, and others—have repeatedly returned to the Bible for such sustenance, as well as musical inspiration and a framework with which they can better understand themselves. “I hope the book prompts, provokes, and intrigues as it reveals this often-hidden history,” writes Steve Turner. You’ll never listen to your favorite song or popular tune the same way again after discovering how the Bible has influenced music.

From his very first poem in 1990, D. Alexander Holiday has engaged in an intense form of poetry that might be called Reality Writing. He has dealt with issues both personal (the abandonment and loss of never knowing his own parents), and universal (racism, genocide, imperialism). Now he returns with more poignant poems in which he continues a tradition he began long ago: putting people on trial in the public arena. In this case, the defendants include those who have united against him to prevent him from gaining custody of the granddaughter he was never informed he had – until the death of his own daughter, the little girl’s mother. Together with assorted letters and documents, this body of work tells the often horrifying story of Mr. Holiday’s run-ins with the human race: with the abusive and sadistic foster parents with whom he spent his first 18 years of life, having been abandoned by his mother and father (“Somehow Mama Knew”); with his daughter’s mother (“Ashes to Ashes,” “All the Killers Gathered”); and with co-workers (“Please Tell Massuh,” “How I Am Perceived”). But they also offer a few moments of gentle respite in the form of salutes to comedians whose work got him through the worst of times (“Stop Laughing at Me” and “Final Curtain”). As you read these poems, you will gradually learn of the insidious pattern of betrayal and deceit to which Mr. Holiday has been subjected to since his daughter’s mother packed up their child and moved her back down to New York City when she was still an infant. You will learn why he had no contact with his daughter, whom he loved deeply, for over 10 years – until he learned of her death in a most bizarre manner. And as you read of his conflicts with the human race - the years spent in abusive foster homes, repeated betrayals at the hands of family members, acquaintances, and others - you will marvel at the amazing story of a man who faced utter abandonment and turned to reading and writing instead of drugs, alcohol, or even more destructive forms of catharsis and escape which he might have (understandably) chosen.

The premise of this book is that all business ideas begin with a dream. More often than not the dream remains an unfulfilled fantasy that always can find a happy ending. However, every once in a while the dream becomes so intense that the dreamer decides to make it a reality. When this happens an entrepreneur is born and from that moment on there are numerous pitfalls that will threaten to turn the successful dream into a realistic nightmare. Most books on the subject of achieving success in small business are presented in a technical manner with specific procedures to follow and take the approach that if an aspiring entrepreneur follows the time proven steps the chances for long-term success with be improved. Why then do most small business ideas end up in failure? Using a lifetime of real world hands on experience with hundreds of small businesses this book deals with the real reasons most small businesses fail. These dream killers are the true causes of a dream’s failure. They are mostly personal in nature and as such are generally avoided by how to books, consultants, and traditional advisors that tend to use a cookie cutter approach to every situation. Blending a lifetime of personal experiences in plain language with non-ambiguous answers to many of the pitfalls to success is intended to provide the reader with the benefits of knowing that there is nothing new in business and all small business is personal. Blending the two will often determine whether a business dream will come true.
