The true story of a fiery young woman’s heartwarming and hilarious journey that takes her from near-death in California to a trip around the world in search of her ultimate salvation. Along the way, she discovers a world of cultural mayhem, radical medical treatment, and, most importantly, a piece of her life she never even knew she was missing. When Amy B. Scher was struck with undiagnosed late-stage, chronic Lyme disease, the best physicians in America labeled her condition incurable and potentially terminal. Deteriorating rapidly, she went on a search to save her own life—from the top experts in Los Angeles and the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Minneapolis to a state-of-the-art hospital in Chicago. After exhausting all of her options in the US, she discovered a possible cure—but it was highly experimental, only available in India, and had as much of a probability of killing her as it did of curing her. Knowing the risks, Amy packed her bags anyway and flew across the world hoping to find the ultimate cure. This Is How I Save My Life is a powerful and uplifting story of sheer determination for anyone who believes in—or doubts—the existence of miracles and the infinite power of self-healing when it seems like all hope is lost.

When Amy Scher, an eternal-optimist since birth, finds her near-perfect 25-year-old body falling apart, she is met with pessimistic diagnoses and failed treatments. Stumbling through her “party years” with Ritz-Carlton-like hospital stays and specialists looking at her in stupefaction, her optimism remains, but the chance for recovery from late stage Lyme disease dwindles. Admittedly living a life of clichés such as “nothing is by chance,” “there are signs everywhere,” and “this too shall pass,” her life takes a U-turn after one serendipitous meeting in Maui. She falls into a conversation with a woman who has just returned from India after receiving radical medical treatment. Amy’s love affair with “signs” from the Universe is all she needs after this meeting to propel her research about this treatment—and from there, the adventure begins. Free spirited and fiercely driven, she takes a leap of faith and travels to Delhi, India for an experimental embryonic stem cell treatment. Unsure if she has been given the equivalent of a never-ending ladder in the game of Chutes and Ladders, or is making a medical mistake that will kill her, she dives in, never losing hold of her humor and hope. From the time she steps foot in the magical country of vibrant colors and endless honking horns, she valiantly defends herself against “Eastern philosophical bullshit,” and those suggesting she can think her way back to health. She instead focuses on her place as the first patient with Lyme disease to undergo this treatment and manages to keep her eye on the prize of surviving. She quickly discovers though, healing is much more than just physical. She’ll not only need faith in the stem cells, but also a healthy dose of self-introspect and lessons in the art of ‘letting go.’ This country where pedestrians risk their lives crossing the street, but cars stop for sacred cows, wraps her in its spirit and becomes her greatest teacher. Armed with her self-created motto, “when life kicks your ass, kick back,” she embraces her challenges with gusto and never looks down, reminding herself it’s simply, the wrong way. Scher’s adventures are met with a fresh perspective and childlike curiosity. Her experiences are both hilarious and heartbreaking – from the Auyurvedic massage where she listens to the sound of her own thighs slapping together on a hard table; to her Taj Mahal road trip where people along the way are poverty-stricken and unclothed, but goats are wearing sweaters and jewels. Amy’s no holds-barred attitude will inspire you to see the hidden signs in your own life and challenge your deepest beliefs about healing. This powerful and uplifting story of sheer determination is for anyone who believes in--or doubts--the existence of miracles and the infinite power of self-healing.

"General Custer Indian Fighter" comprises (4) complete volumes written by General George Custer & his wife Elizabeth Custer; covering the period from the end of the American Civil War in 1865 to the Custer Massacre in 1876. In more than 600 pages, with more than 491,000 words, and 90 images, two first-person eyewitnesses paint a picture of cavalry life & Plains Indians life during this period. In Book I, "My Life On The Plains Or Personal Experiences With Indians" General Custer relates his career from 1865 to 1872. He includes taking command of the newly formed 7th Cavalry, their training & battles, the life of the cavalryman in garrison & on campaign, & his views on the life & culture of the Plains tribes. In Book II, "Tenting On The Plains Or General Custer In Kansas & Texas" Mrs Custer, who accompanied her husband to all his postings, relates the story from 1865-67. In Book III, "Following the Guidon" she continues the story to 1870, then in Book IV, "Boots And Saddles Or Life In Dakota With General Custer" she takes the account up to the tragedy at the Battle of the Little Big Horn in 1876. Although both General Custer & Elizabeth portray his decisions & movements in the best possible light for his reputation, they convey the most accurate first-hand view of the struggle with the Plains tribes during this period. Mrs Custer, in particular, presents a complete view of the life of the cavalrymen & the Indians since she had access to both Custer's records, the memories of the surviving participants & the official Government reports, while Custer had only his own experiences to draw on. Here in one volume, is the four book complete story, for one low price, of one of the most fascinating periods in Western American History.

Peake uses prevailing and emerging models of life-span development along with examples from Cinema to animate psychological understanding and application. The use of film offers powerful opportunities for anecdotes, clinical applications, and examples of life stories drawn from popular and lesser-known cinema. The addition of movies as metaphors make the material accessible to lay, student, and professional readers. Drawn from numerous workshops and symposia using this material, Peake finds this emphasis breathes life into teaching, negotiating, and growing from new perspectives.

Wenn in den USA schwarze Teenager von Polizisten ermordet werden, ist das nur ein Problem von individueller Verfehlung? Nein, denn rassistische Gewalt ist fest eingewebt in die amerikanische Identität – sie ist das, worauf das Land gebaut ist. Afroamerikaner besorgten als Sklaven seinen Reichtum und sterben als freie Bürger auf seinen Straßen. In seinem schmerzhaften, leidenschaftlichen Manifest verdichtet Ta-Nehisi Coates amerikanische und persönliche Geschichte zu einem Appell an sein Land, sich endlich seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen. Sein Buch wurde in den USA zum Nr.-1-Bestseller und ist schon jetzt ein Klassiker, auf den sich zukünftig alle Debatten um Rassismus beziehen werden.
