Winner of the Wellcome Prize A finalist for the Samuel Johnson Prize and the Costa Award “A memoir quite unlike any other. It has the strength of an arrow: taut, spiked, quavering, working to its fatal conclusion...an extraordinary story told in an extraordinary way.”—The Sunday Times “The most heartbreaking memoir of the year.”—Independent on Sunday Winner of the Wellcome Book Prize, and finalist for every major nonfiction award in the UK, including the Samuel Johnson Prize and the Costa Award, The Iceberg is artist and writer Marion Coutts’ astonishing memoir; an “adventure of being and dying “and a compelling, poetic meditation on family, love, and language. In 2008, Tom Lubbock, the chief art critic for The Independent was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The Iceberg is his wife, Marion Coutts’, fierce, exquisite account of the two years leading up to his death. In spare, breathtaking prose, Coutts conveys the intolerable and, alongside their two year old son Ev—whose language is developing as Tom’s is disappearing—Marion and Tom lovingly weather the storm together. In short bursts of exquisitely textured prose, The Iceberg becomes a singular work of art and an uplifting and universal story of endurance in the face of loss.

"Iceberg, Right Ahead!" Only 160 minutes passed between the time a sailor on lookout duty uttered these chilling words and the moment when the mighty ocean liner Titanic totally disappeared into the cold, dark waters of the North Atlantic. This century-old tragedy, which took more than 1,500 lives, still captivates people in the twenty-first century. Seventy-three years separate the two major Titanic eventsthe 1912 sinking of the vessel and the dramatic 1985 discovery of the wreck by Robert Ballard. But additional stories about the victims, survivors, rescuers, reporters, investigators, and many others show the far-reaching effects this tragedy had on society. Award-winning author Stephanie Sammartino McPherson has collected numerous personal accounts of the event, including the knighted man who spent the rest of his life in seclusion because he was accused of dishonorable behavior in a lifeboat, the stewardess who survived two shipwrecks and a mid-ocean collision, and the New York Times executive who sent multiple reporters to meet the rescue ship, thus earning a national reputation for his newspaper. She also links the Titanic tragedy to changes in regulations worldwide. After a Senate Inquiry and a British trial attempted to assign blame for the disaster, new laws on ship safety were put in place. A group of nations also banded together to form an ice patrol, eventually leading to the formation of the U.S. Coast Guard. Even the most avid Titanic fans will learn something new as McPherson brings the reader up to date on the politics and intrigue still surrounding the wreckincluding what modern science can reveal about what really happened to the ship and who was at fault. Prepare to follow the never-ending story of the Titanic into its second century.

Beyond the Iceberg: A Case for Emotional Healing presents a step-by-step investigation into human nature, considering why so many people get angry, producing an intense response without any good reason. Through her experience and professional studies, author Dr. Christine Onu offers antidotes to those hidden reasons causing people appear to be sick when there is no actual sickness. There are many problems plaguing society today for which the root causes are not self-evident. We are naturally inclined to think and care for ourselves and our own safety more than we think or care for others. But nobody is an island; we need each other for life to be more meaningful. While there is absolute need for each of us to take proper care of ourselves, we should also be interested in the needs and progress of others. Beyond the Iceberg explores the value of psychology as a necessary tool to deal with and understand human behaviors and the problems that arise in interpersonal relationships, so that we are better able to resolve conflicts when they arise. Each of us creates our own life story and reality—who we are as human beings. Beyond the Iceberg considers the hidden emotions that create problems in our relationships, at work, and at home, while examining the causes for our psychological challenges and possible solutions.

Growing up in remote central Canada, Larry O'Connor was spellbound by the country farther north -- the unknowable white expanses, the harsh lives of its indigenous peoples and animals, and the exploits of its legendary explorers. A memoir of self-discovery, 'Tip of the Iceberg' samples the history and lore of the frozen wastes as it reveals a young man's journey across his family's past. O'Connor is the kind of child the Eskimos might have left to the elements: undersized, frail, an outsider. Yet he is wilful, driven to lift the pall that emanates from his father to blanket the entire family. Underlying the physical coldness of place is an emotional chill. O'Connor's father is a stern, secretive man, barely knowable to his son, misunderstood by those around him. While father and son are poles apart in their temperament, O'Connor senses the traces of a hidden, softer man in his father, a man who retreats to a locked box of memorabilia in the middle of the night. O'Connor pushes on in his quest. O'Connor's spare and elegant prose conveys the heartbreaking weight of the unspoken and unseen: relatives who never call or visit, photographs locked in a cedar chest, forgotten obituaries in back issues of the local newspaper. In eerie counterpoint, O'Connor mixes fact and fable about narwhals, the midnight sun, and the elusive Northwest Passage with details of the two lives -- the maturing son and distant father. At the same time O'Connor ponders the spirit-killing ethos of his working-class town: Do your duty and mind your business, no showing off and no complaining. The effect is cumulative, subtle, and inexorable. Tip of the Iceberg is a remarkable story, perfectly modulated by O'Connor's exquisite style and infused with the kind of deep humanity that comes from understanding and forgiveness.

When I came out of my coma at mid-life like a six year old, I had no self-esteem, no confidence, no worth or value. I was lower than a snake’s belly. Using the Iceberg Strategies my self-esteem began to emerge. Knowing yourself deeply is the bedrock of self-esteem. Everyone has the same core strength deep within. Self-esteem is on a continuum. Your self-esteem falls on that continuum different than anyone else. More precisely, you have enabled your self-esteem to fall there. You are not given high or low self-esteem. Everyone has equal shares. And like everyone else, your self-esteem is bursting to come forth – overflowing its brim. You are taught to respect your parents and elders. This is confused culturally and religiously. The confusion comes that respecting parents and elders is synonymous with them always being right or knowing better. Compounding this repression is, you learn what you live. Growing up with repression you tend to carry your learning with you, internalize it, and it culminates in oppressing yourself. You live life feeling you have no value. In reality, you have great value, as everyone does. You just may not know it, yet. Fortunately, emerging your self-esteem and your personal growth can start at any age. In the course of Exploring the Iceberg you are discovering the truth. The deeper you know yourself the more truth you discover to emerge your self-esteem to launch your undeniable freedom. How does the truth set you free? Knowing yourself deeply is the bedrock of self-esteem. The more self-esteem you uncover and use in your life, the more confidence you garner to be the real you! When you have this, your self-value and self-worth increase for you to have the strength, courage and wisdom to view the world and yourself though truthful eyes.
