An Inconvenient Truth: The Crisis of Global Warming

An Inconvenient Truth: The Crisis of Global Warming  
by Al Gore

Book Description

Former Vice President Al Gore's New York Times #1 bestselling book is a daring call to action, exposing the shocking reality of how humankind has aided in the destruction of our planet and the future we face if we do not take action to stop global warming. Now, Viking has adapted this book for the most important audience of all: today's youth, who have no choice but to confront this climate crisis head-on.

Dramatic full-color photos, illustrations, and graphs combine with Gore's effective and clear writing to explain global warming in very real terms: what it is, what causes it, and what will happen if we continue to ignore it. An Inconvenient Truth will change the way young people understand global warming and hopefully inspire them to help change the course of history.

About the Author

Former Vice President Al Gore is currently the chairman of both Current TV and Generational Investment Management. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1976 and the U.S. Senate in 1984 and 1990, and served eight years as vice president of the United States, from 1993 to 2000. He is the author of the 1992 bestseller Earth in the Balance: Ecology and the Human Spirit. He lives with his wife, Tipper, in Nashville, Tennessee.


Soul Journey from Lincoln to Lindbergh by Richard Salva
 

Descriptive text, plus testimonials and reviews, are located on my website: www.CrystarPress.com 

About the book

About fifty years ago a great master of yoga, Paramhansa Yogananda, declared that Abraham Lincoln had been a Himalayan yogi in a past life, and that he was reborn as the famous aviator, Charles Lindbergh. But what do the histories show? Is there anything in the lives of these two men that validates Yogananda's statement?

In his new book, Soul Journey from Lincoln to Lindbergh , Richard Salva presents hundreds of similarities in the personalities, characters, and life circumstances of these two American icons.

The connections span every aspect of the human condition-from the physical to the mental, emotional, spiritual and interpersonal-and provide convincing evidence that Lincoln reincarnated as Lindbergh.

By drawing parallels to the life and words of Lincoln, the author explains how past-life experiences influenced Lindbergh-thus presenting answers to questions about the aviator that have puzzled historians for decades: such as why Lindbergh fought so hard to prevent America from entering WW II.

More than one out of every five Americans today believes in reincarnation-yet few are aware of how past-life patterns affect them. Soul Journey fills this gap, by offering a vicarious experience of reincarnation. Through clear and persuasive parallels between the lives of Lincoln and Lindbergh, the reader discovers how the hidden laws of karma and reincarnation impact the events of his or her daily life.

Published in time for Lincoln's Birthday, Soul Journey addresses other important issues, such as the secret spiritual history of America's greatest president, including his past life as a Himalayan yogi; the hidden clues that reveal past lives; how greatness is achieved; and the spiritual principles behind the yoga postures that millions now practice.

Soul Journey has drawn praise from metaphysical experts. Yoga scholar Dr. David Frawley calls it "a fascinating account." Reincarnation authority Frank DeMarco describes the book as "highly interesting" and "a thoughtful comparison of Lincoln . . . and Lindbergh." And Swami Kriyananda, disciple of Yogananda, asserts that "it deserves to become a classic."

About the Author

Richard Salva became interested in reincarnation and yoga philosophy in his teens, when he moved to Ananda, a yoga community in the Sierra Nevada foothills. For the next thirty years, he continued his studies under the guidance of Swami Kriyananda, a direct disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda. An author and minister, he has lectured on reincarnation, yoga philosophy, and history in the United States and in Europe. He currently lives in Silicon Valley, California.

Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity : Get Out the Shovel--Why Everything You Know is Wrong

Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity : Get Out the Shovel--Why Everything You Know is Wrong (Hardcover)

by John Stossel

 

Editorial Review from Publishers Weekly

ABC News correspondent Stossel mines his 20/20 segments for often engaging, frequently tendentious challenges to conventional wisdom, presenting a series of "myths" and then deploying an investigative journalism shovel to unearth "truth." This results in snappy debunkings of alarmism, witch-hunts, satanic ritual abuse prosecutions and marketing hokum like the irradiated-foods panic, homeopathic medicine and the notion that bottled water beats tap. Stossel's libertarian convictions make him particularly fond of exposés of government waste and regulatory fiascoes, which are usually effective but lead inexorably to blanket denunciations of "monster government" and sermons on the wisdom of the market. Sloganeering—"Myth: The EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) will make America less sexist. Truth: The EEOC will torment people and enrich lawyers"—sometimes crowds out objectivity. The author's complacent glosses on overpopulation and global warming ("we can build dykes and move back from the coasts") are especially glib and one-sided. Fans of Stossel's similarly opinionated bestseller Give Me a Break will eat up this new book, but other readers may wince when the author's ideology overshadows the facts.

The Da Vinci…

The Da Vinci Code, Special Illustrated Edition (Hardcover)
by Dan Brown

Book Description

One of the bestselling novels of all time, Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code has intrigued and thrilled millions of readers around the world. Now all the artwork, symbols, architecture, and historic locations—over 160 images—are beautifully compiled in this full-color collector's edition.

A mind-bending code hidden in the works of Leonardo da Vinci. A desperate race through the cathedrals and castles of Europe. An astonishing truth concealed for centuries… unveiled at last.

While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and a gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddles, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci–clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

The stakes are raised when Langdon uncovers a startling link: the late curator was involved in the Priory of Sion—an actual secret society whose members included Sir Isaac Newton, Botticelli, Victor Hugo, and Da Vinci, among others. Langdon suspects they are on the hunt for a breathtaking historical secret, one that has proven through the centuries to be as enlightening as it is dangerous. In a frantic race through Paris, and beyond, Langdon and Neveu find themselves matching wits with a faceless powerbroker who appears to anticipate their every move. Unless they can decipher the labyrinthine puzzle, the Priory's secret—and an explosive ancient truth—will be lost forever.

Instantly catapulted to the top of the bestseller lists around the world, The Da Vinci Code is simultaneously lightning-paced, intelligent, and intricately layered with remarkable research and detail. From secrets embedded in the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, to the symbols of ancient Egypt, to the architecture of landmarks such as the Louvre, Westminster Abbey, Rosslyn Chapel, and more, this fully illustrated collector's edition delivers the complete reading experience of Dan Brown's riveting novel—from the opening pages to the unpredictable and stunning conclusion.


Alchemical Active Imagination : Revised Edition (C. G. Jung Foundation Books)

A Dictionary of Alchemical Imagery
Alchemical Active Imagination : Revised Edition

(C. G. Jung Foundation Books) (Paperback)
by Marie-Louise von Franz

Book Description

C. G. Jung's most important living disciple explains alchemy as a symbolic process of psychological and spiritual transformation.

Although alchemy is popularly regarded as the science that sought to transmute base physical matter, many of the medieval alchemists were more interested in developing a discipline that would lead to the psychological and spiritual transformation of the individual. C. G. Jung discovered in his study of alchemical texts a symbolic and imaginal language that expressed many of his own insights into psychological processes. In this book, Dr. von Franz examines a text by the sixteenth-century alchemist and physician Gerhard Dorn in order to show the relationship of alchemy to the concepts and techniques of analytical psychology. In particular, she shows that the alchemists practiced a kind of meditation similar to Jung's technique of active imagination, which enables one to dialogue with the unconscious archetypal elements in the psyche. The book opens therapeutic insights into the relations among spirit, soul, and body in the practice of active imagination.

Digital Photography : A simple step-by-step visual guide to taking great photographs and digitally enhancing them using Photoshop (Paperback)

by Michael Wright

 

Book Description
A unique approach to a hot subject--digital photography and Photoshop. The only book that shows you how to do it: pictures first, words second.
Michael Wright argues that words spoil most photography books, which are overcomplicated by too much text. It should, he argues, be possible to understand the sequence of events in a photographic or computer process without having to read the text. Photography is a visual process, and the best way to get it across, simply and easily, is visually. We rose to that challenge in the design of this book. We took out everything that wasn't absolutely essential, and illustrated every conceivable step; and it has proved to be remarkably effective. We applied this approach to all areas of digital photography, from composing and taking the shot in the first place, to manipulating the image on a computer, using either Photoshop Elements or Photoshop 7. The result: a completely unique guide to digital photography.

About the Author
Michael Wright is a photographer and artist who teaches art and photography at Hertfordshire University in the UK. He is the author of three books: the forthcoming Step by Step Digital Family Photographs (Ilex), An Introduction to Mixed Media and An Introduction to Pastels (both DK).


Forbidden History: Prehistoric Technologies, Extraterrestrial Intervention, and the Suppressed Origins of Civilization

Forbidden History

Review
 
". . . a case in support of a much greater antiquity for civilization, a convincing argument for the existence of advanced technologies in prehistory, and the outline of a lost fountainhead of world culture."
(SirReadaLot.org, June 2005 )
“. . .essays by such well-known investigators as Robert Schoch, Christopher Dunn or Rand Flem-Ath examine surprisingly sophisticated technology in Pharaonic Egypt, and reconsider possibilities for a global catastrophe that may have altered the course of civilization. . . . this superb new book. . . has much to offer anyone questioning the official party-line concerning mankind’s ancient past.”
(Frank Joseph, Ancient American, Issue # 63 )

"This is a great compilation. . . . the type of book that makes you question what you have been told and makes you want to discover more for yourself." (Ladyfogg, Oct 2005 )
"Read what researchers have to say about prehistoric technologies, evolution versus creation, earth changes, and even the case for extraterrestrial intervention. Look through the eyes of mystics, scientists, and researchers at the top of their fields and see what they have to say about some of the latest finds and discoveries. . . ."
(Rahasya Poe, Lotus Guide, Feb 2005 )
