A powerful and true story comes from the testimony of 12 Serbian POWs. In the turbulence of World War II Germany, hunger for life turns a young POW into a traitor to his countrymen, but love and sacrifice makes him a hero in this elegant tale of defiance by two people in love in the time of horror.´´Everything chimerical that I have heard from a distance has become real, tangible, and so close. - And yet, still so distant. Imponderable. Immaterial. That is music. The heartbeat that nurtures us in our mothers’ wombs. The sounds of birth and death.´´The Artisan presents itself as a fictional memoir written in the early 1990s by Timo Tomi to his American son, who has just joined Doctors Without Borders to assist during the conflict in Yugoslavia. Timo, a finish carpenter drafted into the Royal Yugoslav Army in May 1940, is taken prisoner when Yugoslavia collapses. Transported to Germany, he longs to return to his family farm, where his partially disabled father, mother, wife, and new daughter must struggle to manage without him. Only by accepting work - helping to build Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, painting a bread factory, and loading cannon shells onto train cars in a munitions factory - can he hope to get enough food to survive.While rebuilding the village church’s bell tower, Timo falls in love with the voice of the young teacher, Hanna Gottfried, a former opera star married to an SS colonel serving on the Eastern Front. Surrounded by violence, atrocities, and war crimes, mutual feelings of respect and admiration begin to flourish between the two young people. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Wiggins.

Heart disease is the number-one cause of death in the United States - and the world. Every 40 seconds, one American dies from cardiovascular disease, which claims more lives than all forms of cancer combined. Yet most of us are only vaguely familiar with the amazing organ inside our chests that sends 2000 gallons of blood throughout our bodies every single day. Dr. Aarush Manchanda has been in the trenches battling heart disease for 12 years. His philosophy of cardiology practice is rooted in his belief that patients aren´t just a set of symptoms in a study - and caring for them involves more than following one-size-fits-all instructions. Using his Artisan´s Approach™, he´s developed a new language, his ´´heart house´´ analogy, for communicating with patients about heart health and empowering them to be involved in their own care. In this book, you´ll discover... The difference between a heart attack and cardiac arrest How plaque can erupt - like a volcano - in your heart The six parts of your heart house Causes, diagnoses, and treatment of heart issues Lifestyle tips for a healthy heart And more 1.

Superman rose from popular culture - comic books, newspaper strips, radio, television, novels, and movies - but people have so embraced the character that he has now become part of folklore. This transition from popular to folk culture signals the importance of Superman to fans and to a larger American populace. Superman´s story has become a myth dramatizing identity, morality, and politics. Many studies have examined the ways in which folklore has provided inspiration for other forms of culture, especially literature and cinema. In Superman in Myth and Folklore, Daniel Peretti explores the meaning of folklore inspired by popular culture, focusing not on the Man of Steel´s origins but on the culture he has helped create. Superman provides a way to approach fundamental questions of human nature, a means of exploring humanity´s relationship with divinity, an exemplar for debate about the type of hero society needs, and an articulation of the tension between the individual and the community. Through examinations of tattoos, humor, costuming, and festivals, Peretti portrays Superman as a corporate-owned intellectual property and a model for behavior, a means for expression and performance of individual identity, and the focal point for disparate members of fan communities. As fans apply Superman stories to their lives, they elevate him to a mythical status. Peretti focuses on the way these fans have internalized various aspects of the character. In doing so, he delves into the meaning of Superman and his place in American culture and demonstrates the character´s staying power. The book is published by University Press of Mississippi. The audiobook will be published by University Press Audiobooks. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Carrico. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/130403/bk_acx0_130403_sample.mp3.

Electronic publishing has upset the equilibrium enjoyed by the publishing industry for the last half-century. While some celebrate the overthrow of the gatekeeping elite and the democratization of publishing, others lament the end of literary culture. Beneath the enthusiasm and the angst, a new market has opened as commercial publishers abandon mid-list books in favor of blockbusters. Thanks to online markets where books never go out of print, it is now possible for authors to earn a living writing and selling books they and their readers love. This guide explores artisan publishing, a new approach to creating and releasing books where the focus is on quality and the integrity of the author´s editorial vision. The path of the artisan isn´t a shortcut to fame and fortune, but it is the best way to create something you´ll be proud of and in which your readers will find lasting value. 1. Language: English.

In The Artisan Soul, Erwin Raphael McManus, author, thought leader, and founder of MOSAIC in Los Angeles, pens a manifesto for human creativity and the beginning of a new renaissance. McManus not only calls us to reclaim our creative essence but reveals how we can craft our lives into works of art. There are no shortcuts to quality, and McManus celebrates the spiritual process that can help us discover our true selves. McManus demonstrates that we all carry within us the essence of an artist. We all need to create, to be part of a process that brings to the world something beautiful, good, and true in order to allow our souls to come to life. It´s not only the quality of the ingredients we use to build our lives that matter but the care we bring to the process itself. Just like baking artisan bread, it´s a process that´s crafted over time. And God has something to say about how we craft our lives. With poignant, inspirational stories and insights from art, life, history, and scripture interspersed throughout, McManus walks listeners through the process of crafting a life of beauty and wonder.
