Revolution Song: [a Story of American Freedom]

Revolution Song: [a Story of American Freedom]
Shorto, Russell

With America's founding principles being debated today as never before, Russell Shorto looks back to the era in which those principles were forged. Drawing on new sources, he weaves the lives of six people into a seamless narrative that casts fresh light on the range of experience in colonial America on the cusp of revolution. While some of the protagonists-a Native American warrior, a British aristocrat, George Washington-play major roles on the field of battle, others-a woman, a slave, and a laborer-struggle no less valiantly to realize freedom for themselves. Through these lives we understand that the Revolution was, indeed, fought over the meaning of individual freedom, a philosophical idea that became a force for violent change. A powerful narrative and a brilliant defense of American values, Revolution Song makes the compelling case that the American Revolution is still being fought today and that its ideals are worth defending.

Waking up in Winter: In Search of What Really Matters at Midlife

Waking up in Winter: In Search of What Really Matters at Midlife
Richardson, Cheryl

Internationally recognized coach and New York Times bestselling author Cheryl Richardson has toured the world empowering others to make lasting change. But when Richardson's own life no longer worked as it once had, a persistent, inner voice offered unmistakable guidance: it was time to reevaluate her life to uncover what really mattered. The book is a candid and revelatory account of how at midlife, Richardson found renewed contentment and purpose through a heroic, inward journey. The unfolding story, told through intimate journal entries, follows Richardson from the first, gentle nudges of change to a thoughtfully reimagined life, a soulful, spring awakening. With an experienced coach's intuition and an artist's eye, Richardson reexamines everything: her marriage, her work, her friendships, and her priorities, gracefully shedding parts of the self that no longer serve along the way.

SWEARING IS GOOD FOR YOU (CD)

SWEARING IS GOOD FOR YOU (CD)
Byrne, Emma

In a sparkling debut in the entertaining pop science vein of Mary Roach, scientist Emma Byrne examines the latest research to show how swearing can be good for people. She reveals how swearing has been around since the earliest humans began to communicate, and has been shown to reduce physical pain, to lower anxiety, to prevent physical violence, to help trauma victims recover language, and to promote human cooperation. Packed with the results of unlikely and often hilarious scientific studies; from the 'ice bucket test' for coping with pain, to the connection between Tourette's and swearing, to a chimpanzee who curses at her handler in sign language; a lighthearted but convincing case for the foulmouthed.
