In The Sum of Our Days, internationally acclaimed author Isabel Allende reconstructs the painful reality of her own life in the wake of the tragic death of her daughter, Paula. Narrated with warmth, humor, exceptional candor, and wisdom, this remarkable memoir is as exuberant and full of life as its creator. Allende bares her soul as she shares her thoughts on love, marriage, motherhood, spirituality and religion, infidelity, addiction, and memory—and recounts stories of the wildly eccentric, strong-minded, and eclectic tribe she gathers around her and lovingly embraces as a new kind of family.

Winston Churchill's key role in the outcome of the Second World War brought him international renown and arguably made him the most important figure in twentieth-century British politics. Born into an aristocratic family in 1875, his life spanned two centuries and nine decades of personal, social and political change, and it is against this background that Stuart Ball, a leading historian of modern British politics, discusses the remarkable ups and downs of Churchill's career. After election to Parliament in 1900, Churchill rose quickly to high military and political office. But he changed parties twice, bringing his character and judgment into question, and during the 1930s he became politically isolated. His warnings of the need to deter Hitler were largely ignored and it was only after the failure of appeasement in 1939 that his reputation rose again. As a much-admired war-time prime minister and subsequently, during the Cold War, he traveled the globe tirelessly in pursuit of alliances and dtente between America and Russia. This concise biography is extensively illustrated with photographs, cartoons and documents, including personal correspondence, reflecting Churchill's dedication to literature, art and family alongside his tremendous public achievements.

Life is chaotic. But we can choose to live it differently. It doesn’t always feel like it, but we do have the freedom to creatively change the everyday little things in our lives so that our path better aligns with our values and passions. The popular blogger and founder of the internationally recognized Simple Mom online community tells the story of her family’s ongoing quest to live more simply, fully, and intentionally. Part memoir, part travelogue, part practical guide, Notes from a Blue Bike takes you from a hillside in Kosovo to a Turkish high-rise to the congested city of Austin to a small town in Oregon. It chronicles schooling quandaries and dinnertime dilemmas, as well as entrepreneurial adventures and family excursions via plane, train, automobile, and blue cruiser bike. Entertaining and compelling—but never shrill or dogmatic—Notes from a Blue Bike invites you to climb on your own bike, pay attention to who you are and what your family needs, and make some important choices. It’s a risky ride, but it’s worth it—living your life according to who you really are simply takes a little intention. It’s never too late.

In truth, just about anyone of us can scribble out a book about personal answers to the many questions of life. Worldview 101, or, What is most basic and true to my own reality as a human upon the earth? is my own response to a number of different concerns and issues in life. You might think of this writing as a personal Platos handbook, a general set of responses to the many questions of life. As its writer, it is only a part of the representation of my most current worldview (I say current because how we see the world is always in a state of movement). Concerning the book, as you read it, do so with the approach that you are first taking into account my way of seeing things, thinking about it, and then re-shaping more of how you personally view things. See if you relate to we think this, or we came to know that. If you do, adopt the idea as your own. If not, move on. In picking and choosing your position on the issues presented here, you will probably come to know more of what you are all about more of what you know you know. And what will that do? It will give you a perspective in higher thought which is a good sort of perspective to possess. This, you can hopefully use to govern your own life more personally. It can be very difficult to acclimate to this world of ours. Perhaps the thoughts in this book will help change or reshape your overall acclimation to life for the better. Knowing more never really stops. If life is meant for anything, for some reason that we dont really know about, it seems meant for us to learn more about being. In the end, it is this being part of us that relays a story. It also tells to others in our world who and what we are or were. Our lives are personal narratives, and play out as such for each of us. Life speaks to our innermost parts; what is it saying to you? We can hear the messages if we listen carefully.
