Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul

Deepak Chopra presents ten lessons to help build awareness and change the distorted energy patterns that are the root cause of aging, infirmity, and disease.
Fifteen years after his #1 *New York Times* bestseller, *Ageless Body, Timeless Mind*, Deepak Chopra revisits “the forgotten miracle”–the body’s infinite capacity for change and renewal. You cannot take advantage of this miracle, Chopra says, unless you are willing to completely reinvent your body, transforming it from a material object to a dynamic, flowing process. “Your physical body is a fiction,” Chopra contends. Every cell is made up of two invisible ingredients: awareness and energy.
Transformation can’t stop with the body, however; it must involve the soul. The soul–seemingly invisible, aloof, and apart from the material world–actually creates the body. Only by going to the level of the soul will you access your full potential, bringing more intelligence, creativity, and awareness into every aspect of your life.
*Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul* delivers ten breakthroughs–five for the body, five for the soul–that lead to self-transformation. In clear, accessible terms, Chopra shows us how to commit ourselves to deeper awareness, focus on relationships instead of consumption, embrace every day as a new world, and transcend the obstacles that afflict body and mind.
Deepak Chopra has inspired millions with his profound teachings over the years. His bestselling books have explored the mind/body connection and the power of spirit. With his latest book, he invites you to experience with him the miracles that unfold when we connect the body directly to the awesome mysteries that give life meaning–directly to the soul. When you have completed this journey, after reinventing your body and resurrecting your soul, the ecstasy of true wholeness becomes possible for the very first time.*

Red Mars

Amazon.com Review

Red Mars opens with a tragic murder, an event that becomes the focal point for the surviving characters and the turning point in a long intrigue that pits idealistic Mars colonists against a desperately overpopulated Earth, radical political groups of all stripes against each other, and the interests of transnational corporations against the dreams of the pioneers.

This is a vast book: a chronicle of the exploration of Mars with some of the most engaging, vivid, and human characters in recent science fiction. Robinson fantasizes brilliantly about the science of terraforming a hostile world, analyzes the socio-economic forces that propel and attempt to control real interplanetary colonization, and imagines the diverse reactions that humanity would have to the dead, red planet.

Red Mars is so magnificent a story, you will want to move on to __ and , or 1998’s . –L. Blunt Jackson

From Publishers Weekly

The first installment in Robinson’s ( Blind Geometer ) new trilogy is an action-packed and thoughtful tale of the exploration and settlement of Mars–riven by both personal and ideological conflicts–in the early 21st century. The official leaders of the “first hundred” (initial party of settlers) are American Frank Chalmers and Russian Maya Katarina Toitova, but subgroups break out under the informal guidance of popular favorites like the ebullient Arkady Nikoleyevich Bogdanov, who sets up a base on one of Mars’s moons, and the enigmatic Hiroko, who establishes the planet’s farm. As the group struggles to secure a foothold on the frigid, barren landscape, friction develops both on Mars and on Earth between those who advocate terraforming, or immediately altering Mars’s natural environment to make it more habitable, and those who favor more study of the planet before changes are introduced. The success of the pioneers’ venture brings additional settlers to Mars. All too soon, the first hundred find themselves outnumbered by newcomers and caught up in political problems as complex as any found on Earth.

The reach of a chef: beyond the kitchen

SUMMARY: “Michael Ruhlman has long enjoyed a love affair with cooking, food, and the work of the chef. His previous exploration of the restaurant kitchen and the men and women who call it home led Anthony Bourdain to call him “the greatest living writer on the subject of chefs – and on the business of preparing food.” But even his broad experience couldn’t have prepared him for the profound shift in American culture that has raised restaurant cooking to the level of performance art and the status of the chef to celebrity CEO.” “Beginning at Per Se, one of the most recent, exclusive, and expensive of Manhattan’s four-star restaurants, Ruhlman takes readers into some of America’s most illustrious – and most frenetic – kitchens. Throughout his travels, he seeks out and explains new trends and phenomena, like Las Vegas’s recent elevation to the country’s food Gomorrah, and returns to previous haunts to see what’s changed. A dispatch from a new world where chefs are stars and culinary school classes are burgeoning, The Reach of a Chef looks at the state of professional cooking in the post-Child, Food Network era via the heavy hitters in the industry such as Thomas Keller and Masa Takayama, Grant Achatz and Melissa Kelly, Emeril Lagasse and a new breed of cooking celebrity: girl next door Rachael Ray.” “In the end, readers get an in-the-trenches look at professionals whose very life’s work had once been to feed us in order to feed themselves – but is now increasingly a type of work that delivers them to corporate boardrooms and television studios.”–BOOK JACKET.
