    "It doesn't take an Einstein to understand modern physics," says Professor Wolfson at the outset of these 24 lectures on what may be the most important subjects in the universe: relativity and quantum physics. Both have reputations for complexity. But the basic ideas behind them are, in fact, simple and comprehensible by anyone. These dynamic and illuminating lectures begin with a brief overview of theories of physical reality starting with Aristotle and culminating in Newtonian or "classical" physics.

    We all know what is healthy to think and what is not, much like we know that eating an apple is better than gorging on donuts. But once we start thinking anxious thoughts, it is tough to move from disaster to reality. Our brain can ruin our day. The road map to happiness can be found in Freeing Yourself from Anxiety. Unlike most guides, Dr. Tamar Chansky’s book explains that the solution is not positive thinking but possible thinking. Armed with her strategies, listeners can achieve accurate perceptions of their lives that can liberate them from fear and perfectionism.

    Shunryu Suzuki was a direct spiritual descendant of the renowned 13th-century Zen master Dogen, and his hugely influential Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind ranks with the great classics of Zen literature. Suzuki's clear, coherent translation of ancient beliefs and principles miraculously leaves all the subtleties of Zen intact, while adapting the language to modern sensibilities.

    Investigative journalist and number-one New York Times best-selling author Ian Halperin reveals the true and untold story about this larger-than-life and often outrageous figure. From his childhood in Austria to his rise as a star of American conservative politics, the story of ArnoldSchwarzenegger's life reads like the script of a Hollywood B-movie penned by Horatio Alger.

    Chris says: "A very interesting, well written and read story."
