  • The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs

    Story

    Here is an explosive book that takes us, for the first time, deep inside a shadowy, fascinating, and surreal world of unscrupulous doctors, anything-goes team directors, and athletes so relentlessly driven to succeed that they would do anything—and take any risk, physical, mental, or moral—to gain the edge they needed to win. The Secret Race is a riveting, courageous act of witness from a man who is as determined to reveal the hard truth about his sport as he once was to win the Tour de France.

    The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying is a contemporary spiritual masterpiece and one of the world's most profound sources of sacred inspiration. Sogyal Rinpoche interprets Tibetan Buddhism for Western students, offering new ways to look at life and death. He teaches us to transcend our fear and denial of death, enabling us to discover parts of ourselves that will survive eternally.

    Story

    i don't know, coming from the "west" it does seem like death is hidden from our culture.. i mean logically i do understand the concept that we are all going to die but that is about as far as I think most people i know address the concept.. however in other cultures they seem to embrace and recognize death more adeptly in their ordinary lives.. so "death" isn't the most happy topic and thus i didn't see why getting exposed to it would be of any value but this book did really connect me with the concept and rather than it being a bad thing to be aware of, it should me actually how it was a good thing and we can benefit from embracing the concept to live our lives a more fuller way..

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Jeanne says: "Interesting man"

    I really enjoyed the book. It gave me a greater appreciation not only for Steve Jobs but also the importance of making technology work easily in our daily lives.
