In The Zone from the Author: Michael Murphy. Michael Murphy, bestselling author of Golf in the Kingdom, explains the power of athletics to transform the body, mind, and spirit Athletes and coaches often say they feel “in the zone” while participating in sports or other endeavors, and Esalen Institute cofounder Michael Murphy carefully documents this phenomenon in one of the most comprehensive works of its kind. Murphy and coauthor Rhea A. White categorize twenty types of extraordinary athletic feats, exalted states of consciousness, and altered perceptions that, they say, evoke the richness of a spiritual practice. This wide-ranging compendium includes insights from amateur, Olympic, and professional athletes, such as Michael Jordan, Mario Andretti, Jack Nicklaus, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Forensic Architecture from the Author: Eyal Weizman. In recent years, the group Forensic Architecture began using novel research methods to undertake a series of investigations into human rights abuses. Today, the group provides crucial evidence for international courts and works with a wide range of activist groups, NGOs, Amnesty International, and the UN. Forensic Architecture has not only shed new light on human rights violations and state crimes across the globe, but has also created a new form of investigative practice that bears its name. The group uses architecture as an optical device to investigate armed conflicts and environmental destruction, as well as to cross-reference a variety of evidence sources, such as new media, remote sensing, material analysis, witness testimony, and crowd-sourcing. In Forensic Architecture, Eyal Weizman, the group's founder, provides, for the first time, an in-depthintroduction to the history, practice, assumptions, potentials, and double binds of this practice. The book includes an extensive array of images, maps, and detailed documentation that records the intricate work the group has performed. Traversing multiple scales and durations, the case studies in this volume include the analysis of the shrapnel fragments in a room struck by drones in Pakistan, the reconstruction of a contested shooting in the West Bank, the architectural recreation of a secret Syrian detention center from the memory of its survivors, a blow-by-blow account of a day-long battle in Gaza, and an investigation of environmental violence and climate change in the Guatemalan highlands and elsewhere. Weizman's Forensic Architecture,stunning and shocking in its critical narrative, powerful images,and daring investigations, presents a new form of public truth, technologically, architecturally, and aesthetically produced. The practice calls for a transformative politics in which architecture as a field of knowledge and a mode of interpretation exposes and confronts ever-new forms of state violence and secrecy.

In The Zone from the Author: Peter Wolfe. The Twilight Zone explores the possibilities inhering in the ordinary. A Twilight Zone episode can move us by being poignant and intimate, rambunctious or thought provoking. It can also be orchestrated as a set of intertwined plot developments or as a serial progression. But regardless of whether it takes place on an asteroid, in a city pool room, or in the backwoods, it will usually convey both a folklorist's eye for detail and the born raconteur's sense of pace. Rod Serling, the show's founder, main scriptwriter, and artistic director, knew how much burden he could place on his rhetorical and dramatic gifts. Deservedly celebrated as a pioneer in TV science fiction, he also writes about history and loyalty, the grip of everyday reality, and the dangers of both forgetting about one's ghosts and giving them the upper hand.

Finding The Zone from the Author: Gordon D. Lawrence. In the zone-not just zoning-out-is a great place to be. Whether the zone experience happens in our work or play, it is where our best stuff flows together and we find powerful motivation to keep improving. But, knowing the power and deep satisfaction of the zone experience, we have to wonder why we don't get there more often-and why those of us who supervise, teach, coach, and nurture others are not more successful in helping them get there.In this fascinating exploration of mind and motivation, Gordon D. Lawrence shows that the main barrier is the deep-seated, conventional assumption that we are born with unformed, unorganized minds in need of structure supplied by good parents and teachers. He highlights the work of current researchers who have documented that babies are born with investigative minds that are already exquisitely organized to make sense of the world and to take the initiative to figure out ways to get their world to be responsive to their needs. When we ignore this fact and treat people as if their minds were blank slates, as we so typically do in schools and the workplace, we can't help them find the zone.Lawrence goes on to describe how this inborn mental organization comes in different patterns, different mind-sets, each with its own motivational structure and its own zone-precipitating conditions. Understanding these life-long motivation patterns and the zone phenomenon are the keys to better teaching, supervision and parenting.Drawing on the work of many researchers and using illustrations from schools and the workplace, Lawrence offers a fresh perspective and many practical guidelines for enhancing motivation.Gordon D. Lawrence (Gainesville, FL), a consultant and writer, was for many years a professor of instructional leadership at the University of Florida. He is the author of fifteen books, including People Types and Tiger Stripes (4th edition, 2009) and (with Carolyn M. Lawrence) Organizing Classrooms for Small Group Instruction.
