Book Summary:

John Lock has fled the quiet desperation of his life in England--decades wasted in a meaningless job, a marriage foundering in the wake of loss, and a terrible secret he cannot bear to share with his wife--and has come to India to meet his destiny. A destiny dressed in a white karate suit and sporting an impressive moustache. John has come to offer his help to a man who has learned to conquer pain, a world record-breaker who specializes in feats of extreme endurance and ill-advised masochism. Bibhuti Nayak has survived forty-three kicks to the unprotected groin in ninety seconds, three forty-pound slabs of concrete smashed over his groin with a sledgehammer, and thirty-one watermelons dropped on his stomach in one minute from a height of more than thirty feet. His next record attempt--to have fifty baseball bats broken over his body--will be the crowning moment in a career that has seen him rise from poverty to become a minor celebrity in a nation where standing out from the crowd requires tenacity, courage, and perhaps a touch of madness. John is welcomed into Bibhuti's family and into the color and chaos of Mumbai, where he encounters Ping-Pong-playing monks, a fearless seven-year-old martial arts warrior, and an old man who longs for the monsoon to wash him away. As he and Bibhuti take their leap of faith together, John sets out to rewrite a brave end to a life poorly lived.

Fiction. "Zack Bean has put together here a wonderful and memorable collection of stories. I was surprised and delighted by the unusual landscape, sometimes lush, sometimes stark, often full of secrets and always peopled by 'bad boys' of one kind or another. Bean's masterful and original use of language throughout the book is an additional delight."—Chitra Divakaruni

Book Summary:

If you've watched an Australian film, TV show or ad during the past fifty years, chances are you've seen stuntman Grant Page - falling from the sky, jumping off cliffs, crashing motorbikes, rolling cars, hang-gliding over skyscrapers, or setting himself on fire. He's fearless, forensic and there's nothing he won't try - which makes him the go-to man for anyone wanting a spectacular explosion, a kick-arse fight or an edge-of-your-seat adrenaline rush. Whether it's falling backwards from a great height on fire, sliding a motorbike under a rolling truck, standing in for Mel Gibson - or Shelley Winters! - or mixing it with the maddest and baddest stars and stunties the film industry can offer, Grant's seen and done it all, and had a wild old time along the way. Strap yourself in for the funniest, most outrageous ride of your life as Man on Fire catapults you into the heart of the action. 'Grant is the guy you get to dodge the cars, slide down the cliff on fire, jump in the water and fight the shark. . . He's the kind of guy who just blocks out pain for as long as necessary. It'll hurt later.' - Brian Trenchard-Smith, director 'The most fearless man I've ever met.' - Stacy Keach, actor 'He was gonzo, just . whacked. In America you just call that insane. He's still alive? That's a miracle right there!' - Jamie Lee-Curtis, actor

Book Summary:

Experience the scorching art of Burning Man with this visual history, now updated through 2015! Every August, tens of thousands of participants gather to celebrate artistic expression in Nevada's barren Black Rock Desert. This vastly inhospitable location, called the playa, is the site of Burning Man, where, within a 9-mile fence, artists called Burners create a temporary city devoted to art and participation. Braving extreme elements, over two hundred wildly ambitious works of art are created and intended to delight, provoke, involve, or amaze. In 2015, over 70,000 people attended-the highest number ever allowed on the playa. As Burning Man has created new context, new categories of art have emerged since its inception, including Art to Ride, Collaborative Art, and of course, Art to Burn. "Burning Man: Art on Fire" is an authorized collection of some of the most stunning examples of Burning Man art, now updated to include the most recent installations, through 2015. Experience the amazing sculptures, art, stories, and interviews from the world's greatest gathering of artists. Get lost in a rich gallery of images showcasing the best examples of playa art with over 200 photos. Interviews with the artists reveal not only their motivation to create art specifically for Burning Man, but they also illuminate the dramatic efforts it took to create their pieces. Featuring the incredible photography of long-time Burning Man photographers, Sidney Erthal and Scott London, an introduction from Burning Man founder Larry Harvey, and a foreword from Will Chase, this stunning slipcased edition allows Burners and enthusiasts alike to have a piece of Burning Man with them all year around.

Book Summary:

Jim Dowdall - Stuntman on eight James Bond films; on Indiana Jones, on Star Wars; from doubling for Lee Marvin on The Dirty Dozen back in 1967 to being stunt co-ordinator for ten years for the Top Gear crew and The Grand Tour. He's crashed cars and motorbikes, been flung out of buildings, been shot, blown up and burned. All to save the main stars from injury, from Roger Moore to Matt Damon, from Sir Laurence Olivier to James May. He has the scars and injuries to prove it, and he's still working. Jim takes us behind the scenes on some of the greatest action and adventure films of the last fifty years. He shows us how the stunts were done - and we learn why you need oven glass when you're set completely on fire; how to barrel-roll a car to stop exactly on the mark; and why cat litter is essential for explosions. But this isn't just a story of crazy stunts, it's a look at what makes a stunt performer - the preparation, the fitness, the mental attitude - and how those skills can benefit all of us in our daily lives.

Book Summary:

A devastating and lyrical work of nonfiction, Young Men and Fire describes the events of August 5, 1949, when a crew of fifteen of the US Forest Service’s elite airborne firefighters, the Smokejumpers, stepped into the sky above a remote forest fire in the Montana wilderness. Two hours after their jump, all but three of the men were dead or mortally burned. Haunted by these deaths for forty years, Norman Maclean puts together the scattered pieces of the Mann Gulch tragedy in Young Men and Fire, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award. Alongside Maclean’s now-canonical A River Runs through It and Other Stories, Young Men and Fire is recognized today as a classic of the American West. This twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Maclean’s later triumph—the last book he would write—includes a powerful new foreword by Timothy Egan, author of The Big Burn and The Worst Hard Time. As moving and profound as when it was first published, Young Men and Fire honors the literary legacy of a man who gave voice to an essential corner of the American soul.

Book Summary:

Men are in crisis. From every direction, they are presented with a deformed masculinity. One that sees women as conquests rather than partners. One that values success at work over success at home. One that hinders true and open friendships with other men who hold them up and hold them accountable. One that presents them as either the bumbling, disconnected dad in sitcoms or the predator in movies and video games (and the news). Men were made for more than this. It's time to rekindle the fire living inside of them and awaken them to the value of valiant, righteous manhood. Through inspiring stories and hard-hitting biblical truths, Stephen Mansfield uncovers the seven fires that ought to burn in a man's soul--the fires of destiny, heritage, friendship, love, battle, legacy, and God. This raw guide to the restoration of a noble, honorable manhood will challenge men of every generation to live well, invest in others, and leave a powerful legacy. "Being a man isn't about the illusions mass media presents to us as the way we all should live our lives. Stephen Mansfield is going to make this clear . . . and he's going to call you to be the man you are meant to be."--from the foreword by Scott Hamilton, four-time national and world champion and Olympic gold medalist "A brilliant and absolutely essential book! Mansfield's prose cuts through the cultural darkness like a lighthouse shining across a storm-tossed sea."--Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author "My friend Dr. Stephen Mansfield's new book, Men on Fire, takes us back to the kind of timeless knowledge, wisdom, and truth that have served as a guide for countless generations of men throughout history. It will inspire you to awaken that age-old drive and restore that inner voice that says, 'I can do this. Thank God for another chance.'"--Darrell Green, member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the NFL 100 All-Time Team "There is a war on masculinity today, one that is leaving males with neither the knowledge nor the drive to become men. Seductive sirens of secular socialism lure them into settling to be either thugs or wimps. Men on Fire is both the roadmap and the antidote. For all of our sakes, place this book in the hands of the men you most care about."--Rabbi Daniel Lapin, author, TV host, and president of the American Alliance of Jews and Christians

Book Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. Pat Conroy’s great success as a writer has always been intimately linked with the exploration of his family history. As the oldest of seven children who were dragged from military base to military base across the South, Pat bore witness to the often cruel and violent behavior of his father, Marine Corps fighter pilot Donald Patrick Conroy. While the publication of The Great Santini brought Pat much acclaim, the rift it caused brought even more attention, fracturing an already battered family. But as Pat tenderly chronicles here, even the oldest of wounds can heal. In the final years of Don Conroy’s life, the Santini unexpectedly refocused his ire to defend his son’s honor. The Death of Santini is a heart-wrenching act of reckoning whose ultimate conclusion is that love can soften even the meanest of men, lending significance to the oft-quoted line from Pat’s novel The Prince of Tides: “In families there are no crimes beyond forgiveness.” Praise for The Death of Santini “A brilliant storyteller, a master of sarcasm, and a hallucinatory stylist whose obsession with the impress of the past on the present binds him to Southern literary tradition.”—The Boston Globe “A painful, lyrical, addictive read that [Pat Conroy’s] fans won’t want to miss.”—People “Conroy’s conviction pulls you fleetly through the book, as does the potency of his bond with his family, no matter their sins.”—The New York Times Book Review “Vital, large-hearted and often raucously funny.”—The Washington Post “Conroy writes athletically and beautifully, slicing through painful memories like a point guard splitting the defense.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune From the Trade Paperback edition.

Book Summary:

In the bestselling tradition of Brene Brown’s Daring Greatly and Nick Vujicic’s Life Without Limits comes a rousing 7-step plan for living a life on fire, filled with hope and possibility—from an inspirational speaker who survived a near-fatal fire at the age of nine and now runs a successful business inspiring people all around the world. When John O’Leary was nine years old, he was almost killed in a devastating house fire. With burns on one hundred percent of his body, O’Leary mustered an almost unimaginable amount of inner strength just to survive the ordeal. The insights he gained through this experience and the heroes who stepped into his life to help him through the journey—his family, the medical staff, and total strangers—changed his life. Now he is committed to living life to the fullest and inspiring others to do the same. An incredible and emotionally honest account of triumph over tragedy, On Fire contains O’Leary’s reflections on being that little boy, the life-giving choices made then, and the resulting lessons he learned. O’Leary very clearly shares that without the right people providing the right guidance, at the right time, he never would have made it through those five months in the hospital, let alone the years that followed as he struggled to regain mobility, embrace his story, and ignite clarity of his life’s purpose. On Fire encourages us to seize the power to choose our path and transform our lives from mundane to extraordinary. Once we stop thinking solely on the big moments in our lives, we can begin to focus on those smaller opportunities that tend to pass us by. These are the events—the inflection points in our lives—that can determine how we feel about life now, where we are headed in the future, and how many lives we can impact along the way. We can’t always choose the path we walk, but we can choose how we walk it. Empowering, inspiring, remarkably honest, and heartfelt, O’Leary’s strength and incredible spirit shine through on every page.
