Getting Here From There from the Author: Margaret R. Miles. This book of conversations between Margaret R. Miles and Hiroko Sakomura compares the experiences of two women who grew up in different societies, with different educations, different professions, and different religious orientations. Reflecting on the different ways in which Japanese and American societies inhibited and enabled them, these two women share their struggles, difficulties, and achievements. All of this is set in the context of one of the most radical social movements in the history of the world, as women are gaining increments of equality with men in designing and administering the institutions of public life with opportunities, dangers, and rewards. This is a moment in which a critical mass of women "want it all now," in the best sense of the phrase, seeking to preserve and reinterpret traditional values while exercising their capabilities and skills both in the home and in public life. This book is the memoir of two women's painful and joyful experiences in "getting here from there."

Getting Here From There from the Author: Jack Gibson. "Jack Gibson shares snippets of his life in short stories that will make you laugh and maybe even shed a tear and most importantly provide insight into a man who has achieved much and helped many. Sunday morning visits with cancer patients, travels to Scotland that bond him to his heritage and roadways that run throughout Maine and our country each with a tale of its own...this book will make you take stock of your own life and the profound impact we can all make on our communities." Richard W. Petersen, Pres. & CEO Maine Medical Center From the seven-year-old budding entrepreneur selling magazines door-to-door to the octogenarian (who would believe it?), Gibson has found ways to give back to his community and his beloved State of Maine. Jack Gibson walks a life of intention. Through his career with his paving and recycling companies, Jack was a problem solver. He discovered and licensed methods to make waste products "disappear" into usable products. In essence, Gibson created inert products from contaminated soil, used pavement, rubber by-products and a whole spectrum of construction debris. In his personal life, from honoring his mother and father, to parenting sons, to mourning a life lost to relearning to love, Gibson provides a lesson to all of us that our lives here on earth are important. Whether at work or in the home, what we do matters. Jack Gibson, in his humble delivery of his story, let's us know that we matter.

I Had To Go There To Get Here from the Author: Ken Holmes. There was a lust for fame and fortune. Only then would he become the biggest pull on the planet.

He falls in love and realises that's what he's been looking for all his life, but there is work to do. He is now Don Quixote, the character Cervantes saw four hundred years ago, and he must slay the evil giants before he is worthy of the fair Dulcinea. But they are many. Though Don Quixote is not alone - there have been forces guiding him, giving him strength all his life, way outside our comprehension, and they're getting stronger... ...and so is he.

Getting Here from the Author: William White Howells. Three individuals left footprints in East Africa 3.7 million years ago. Walking upright on human feet, they had crossed a threshold in the long path of their evolution from vertebrates, mammals and primates to enter and dominate a new world. They were not alone. Others, related and descended in ways not entirely clear, spread out, flourished and disappeared; some became the people of today. Although we know a great deal of the story and new information is arriving ever more rapidly, there is still more to be learned about where, when and how our ancestors became us. We do know that we arrived not because we were inevitable, but by luck and happenstance along the way. And we know there were other kinds of humans who co-existed with each other and who might be here today but are not. Now updated and revised to reflect the latest findings and their implications, renowned anthropologist, author, and educator, William Howells draws together here the latest from all today's sciences to tell the fascinating stories of our evolution.

How Did I Get Here From There from the Author: Claire Rayner. It is no secret that happiness was spread a little thinly in Claire Rayner's far from easy childhood. Born in Stepney, East London, in the early 30s during the Depression, she was evacuated during the war. Choosing nursing as a career, she lied about her age in order to enrol as a cadet in the Epsom Cottage Hospital in Surrey, after which she studied at the Royal Northern, winning their gold medal for achievement. Thus began a lifetime's passion for proper medical care for all, a passion that has made Rayner one of Britain's most important and successful campaigners. She is a patron of more than 60 social and charitable organisations, but it is as advice columnist extraordionaire that she is most famous.
