Listen Out Loud from the Author: Ron Weisner. Even hardcore music fans don’t know the name Ron Weisner . . . but they should. A high-powered manager for over four decades, Ron worked alongside Madonna, Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood, Gladys Knight, Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, and, most notably, Michael Jackson. He saw the King of Pop through his game-changing multi-platinum albums Thriller and Off the Wall. He watched M.J.'s prickly father Joe run roughshod over both his son and industry execs. He fought back as the industry tried to steer Jackson in a musical direction that would have derailed his career. And he saw Michael suffer through devastating press coverage that turned the troubled singer's world upside down. Featuring an introduction from Quincy Jones and commentary from Winwood, Knight, and some behind-the-scenes record label power brokers, Weisner's illuminating memoir Listen Out Loud underscores the destructive changes to the industry during his forty-year career, including the shift in focus from artistic integrity to the pursuit of cold hard numbers. It's an intimate glimpse into the music world from a man with a keen eye, sharp ears, and a big heart.

Listening Out Loud from the Author: Randall Huntsberry. Many pupils were studying meditation under the Zen master Sengai. One of them used to arise at night, climb over the temple wall, and go to town on a pleasure jaunt. Sengai, inspecting the dormitory quarters, found this pupil missing one night and also discovered the high stool he had used to scale the wall. Sengai removed the stool and knelt in its place. When the wanderer returned, not knowing that Sengai was the stool, he put his feet on the master's head and jumped down into the grounds. Discovering what he had done, he was aghast. Sengai said, "It is very chilly in the early morning. Do be careful not to catch cold." The pupil never went out at night again. (Adapted from Zen Flesh, Zen Bones compiled by Paul Reps)

The Outsiders from the Author: S. E. Hinton. 50 years of an iconic classic! This international bestseller and inspiration for a beloved movie is a heroic story of friendship and belonging. No one ever said life was easy. But Ponyboy is pretty sure that he's got things figured out. He knows that he can count on his brothers, Darry and Sodapop. And he knows that he can count on his friends—true friends who would do anything for him, like Johnny and Two-Bit. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up on “greasers” like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect—until the night someone takes things too far. The Outsiders is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction that laid the groundwork for the YA genre. S. E. Hinton's classic story of a boy who finds himself on the outskirts of regular society remains as powerful today as it was the day it was first published. "The Outsiders transformed young-adult fiction from a genre mostly about prom queens, football players and high school crushes to one that portrayed a darker, truer world." —The New York Times "Taut with tension, filled with drama." —The Chicago Tribune "[A] classic coming-of-age book." —Philadelphia Daily News A New York Herald Tribune Best Teenage Book A Chicago Tribune Book World Spring Book Festival Honor Book An ALA Best Book for Young Adults Winner of the Massachusetts Children's Book Award From the Trade Paperback edition.

Love Out Loud from the Author: Joyce Meyer. Jesus said, 'You must love the Lord your God with all your soul, mind and strength; and love your neighbour as yourself.' If you had to choose a single verse in the Bible that is a formula for successful living, this would be the one to live by, says Joyce Meyer. Many Christians get mixed up about love. They know they should love God, they know they should love others - but they don't understand what it means to love themselves. Joyce believes that this misconception is one of the greatest pitfalls in the Christian journey. Loving oneself in a balanced, healthy manner is essential in order to have healthy relationships with God and others. Through these inspiring and thoughtful devotions, readers will learn: How to fall in love with God because of who He is rather than what he can give us. Why we cannot truly love ourselves until we truly love God. Why we must love ourselves in order to love others - because it's impossible to give away something you don't possess. Practical ways to put these principles into action and enjoy richer relationships. This powerful volume combines the trademark practical teaching, sound psychology and useful insights that Joyce Meyer is known for and will form a firm basis for devotions for years to come.

The Art Of Living Out Loud from the Author: Meg Blackburn Losey. Master healer and metaphysical teacher Meg Losey experienced her own life crisis in which she lost everything—her house, her business, and her relationship and was forced to learn how to accept this devastating situation. In The Art of Living Out Loud, Losey describes how she learned to live an authentic life, from this traumatic experience. She guides readers through the process of coming clean with ourselves, accepting who we are, discovering our purpose and developing the courage to embody it. Losey shows how to find one’s power from the inside out, dropping pretenses and perceptions of control, shedding fears, and embracing who we are. We can literally create a perfect life right here on earth. "I learned that creating the kind of experience that I wanted in life was as easy as believing it, and that worrying was nothing more than fear of 'what ifs' that didn’t even exist."
