This fresh, first-person book serves as a hilarious and moving hands-on autobiography by Muhammad Ali, the intrepid man of action who spoke in soundbites, all wittily and powerfully visualized by the provocateur graphic designer, George Lois.

Alias Pegge Parker

During World War II, Margaret Lyons, a small-town Pennsylvania girl, had a taste for adventure. She began her career as an advice columnist, adopting the pen name Pegge Parker. She began literally writing her way around the world. Before long, she was headed for China where she met and married Douglas Mackiernan, an undercover CIA agent. The couple became the proud parents of twins, Mike and Mary. Doug was killed by border guards near Tibet, leaving Pegge a single mother, and Pegge would soon meet John Hlavacek, the United Press Bureau Chief she would remain joyfully married to for the rest of her life. Pegge's life and career were nothing if not spontaneous, seemingly weaved by fate's colorful loom. Her prose style of writing is unmistakable, and transports the reader back in time, allowing them to understand and experience life as she knew it more than half a century ago. Alias Pegge Parker also includes four original chapters from Pegge's next book, Diapers on a Dateline. John...

alibaba: The Inside Story Behind Jack Ma and the Creation of the World's Biggest Online Marketplace

A bestseller in China and now translated into English and updated with recent events, Alibaba by Liu Shiying and Martha Avery tells the remarkable story behind the Internet phenomenon Alibaba.com and its founder Jack Ma, a man Barron's named one of the World's Top 30 CEOs in 2008. Ma's rise to prominence presents a riveting story: Despite growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution—in a period of total state control of the economy—he developed the keen entrepreneurial instincts that propelled him to billionaire status and enabled him to build a company outside the usual government channels. These instincts and habits incorporated martial arts training and allowed him to recognize, early on, that the Internet could leverage his company to rapid growth and also transform the way business is done around the world. ...

Alice in Jamesland: The Story of Alice Howe Gibbens James

Alice in Jamesland, the first biography of Alice Howe Gibbens James—wife of the psychologist and philosopher William James, and sister-in-law of novelist Henry James—was made possible by the rediscovery of hundreds of her letters and papers thought to be destroyed in the 1960s. Encompassing European travel, Civil War profiteering, suicide, a stormy courtship, seances, psychedelic mushrooms, the death of a child, and an enduring love story, Alice in Jamesland is a portrait of a nineteenth-century upper-middle-class marriage, told often through Alice’s own letters and made all the more dynamic because of her role in the James family. Susan E. Gunter positions Alice as a lens through which to view the family, as a perceptive observer privy to knowledge of relationships to which those outside the James family were not. She also portrays Alice as the cohesive factor that held the Jameses together, bridging the gap between brothers William and Henry and acting as the stable center for a...

A FRANK, FUNNY, EXPLICIT, AND INSPIRING MEMOIR ABOUT HOW DANCING NAKED IN GAY CLUBS IN THE NATION'S CAPITAL HELPED A COLLEGE PROFESSOR DISCOVER HIS TRUE SELF.I felt that I'd made a transformation as surely as Superman slipping out of a phone booth or Wonder Woman doing a sunburst spin. I was bare-ass in a room of paying strangers, a stripper. After years of wondering what it would be like, I had done it -- faced a fear, defied expectation, embraced a taboo self. It was only the beginning....All I Could Bare is the story of a mild-mannered graduate student who "took the road less clothed" -- a decision that was life changing. Seymour embarked on his journey in the 1990s, when Washington, D.C.'s gay club scene was notoriously no-holds-barred, all the while trying to keep his newfound vocation a secret from his parents and maintain a relation-ship with his boyfriend, Seth. Along the way he met some unforgettable characters -- the fifty-year-old divorce who's obsessed with a...

All Out!: An Autobiography

Albert Ellis, the renowned creator of one of the most successful forms of psychotherapy ? Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) ? tells all in this candid autobiography. Ellis recounts the memorable episodes of his life from his earliest years to the present; discusses how he coped with emotional problems at different stages of life; describes his love life; and subjects his own self-description to a ruthlessly honest critique. The heart of Ellis?s book is his analysis of the psychological leitmotifs that have appeared again and again throughout his life. He describes the aim of this autobiography as follows: "As far as I can, I shall present my bad and good, stupid and intelligent, weak and strong points. Why? Because, following H. G. Wells?s recommendation, I want to go as all-out as I can. I want to acknowledge my idiocies?and use REBT to feel sorry about but unashamed of them. I want to make the point?again a central tenet of REBT?that all humans are fabulously...

All the Way Home: Building a Family in a Falling-Down House

With the lyrics of a Replacements song running through his head ("Look me in the eye, then tell me that I'm satisfied"), David Giffels—with his wife and infant son in tow—combs the environs of Akron, Ohio, in search of the perfect house for his burgeoning family. The quest ends at the front door of a beautiful but decaying Gilded Age mansion, the once-grand former residence of a rubber-industry executive. It lacks functional plumbing and electricity, leaks rain like a cartoon shack, and is infested with all manner of wildlife. But for a young father at a coming-of-age crossroads, the challenge is precisely the allure. All the Way Home is Giffels's funny, poignant, and confounding journey through the great adventure of restoring a crumbling house on the way to discovering what the words "grown up" and "home" really mean.

All's Well That End's Well

This book was written to remind us that we all have fallen short of the glory of God, therefore we need to be mindful of how we view others. We tend to find fault in others because it is easier than facing the truth. This book deals with love, hardships, and how our expectations of others tend to lead us to disappointments.My parents, aunts, uncles, Pastor, friends, and children have played a large portion of encouragement in my life. They taught me that in order to gain respect we must first show respect to others. The Bible taught me that we must do unto others as we would have them to do unto us. In the year of 1998 I preached my initial sermon ? Who could ask for anything more?? I was Ordained in 2000 as a Minister in the Northeast ?B? Conference under the leadership of Bishop C.R Parker.The Gospel according to St. John 9:4, ?I must do the work of Him that sent me while it is day, night cometh when no man can work.?

Alone and on Foot: Ignatius of Loyola

This book is a concise and faithful abridgement of Solo y a pie (Alone and on Foot), the highly acclaimed biography of St Ignatius, written in Spanish by Jose Ignacio Tellechea Idigoras, a medieval scholar of international standing. The English translation, by Cornelius Michael Buckley SJ, was published by Loyola Press, Chicago in 1994, entitled Ignatius of Loyola, the Pilgrim Saint. Alone and on Foot is intended for the busy reader rather than the leisurely scholar. It omits many of the historical and psychological allusions that enrich the original in favor of a sharply defined profile of Ignatius himself.
