In the summer of 1989 I went to visit my dear friend Ahmed in Syria. This is his story and the stories of so many other people I met...<br /><br />...and then we move fast forward to present time. Today, the 26th of August 2016 - "Updates and Thoughts on my book about Syria":<br /><br />In 1990 I began writing my book about my personal experiences in Syria. I was still a very young man and memories from my time in Syria were crystal clear and still dripping from the excitement. After about 60 pages I ran out of steam and it wasn't until 20 years later that I decided to finish my book with all of its unusual stories.<br /><br />During the writing process the uprising in Syria began March 2011. I was conflicted by it and tried a few times to draw some parallels from the new escalating conflict to the stories in my book. But I soon realized that my book about Syria, which is very personal and at times extreme, had to be a periodic piece, an image of the moment with absolutely no references to the future or present times...<br /><br />But what my book does bring to readers who are more interested in the current events rather than the past, is an exclusive insight into the Syrian Arab mentality. A chance to understand why people in this region of the world are particularly addicted to vengeance and brutal violence, and why, perhaps, they have such a short sighted understanding of their own future.<br /><br />Though my book is a patchwork of imperfections and seemingly trifling details, it reflects, now more than ever, upon the clashes between civilizations. Those captured by modern technology and the process of evolution, embracing it as it is. And those who take the new comforts for granted, but insist to continue living in the shadows of the Middle Ages.<br /><br />EMBRACED - In Syria with Love<br /><br />Heini Grünbaum

Left Foot Right Foot is a journey from the seat of a wheelchair to the summit of the highest mountain on Earth. A simple mistake at an indoor climbing gym sentenced Robby to a year in a wheelchair and put an abrupt halt to his dreams and ambitions as a mountaineer and shattered the aspirations of a regular 28-year-old. This story is more than a biography or just another mountaineering expedition account, it's a journey into hell and back, time and time again, in an awe-inspiring effort to chase the ultimate dream and rebuild a life worth living for.

Though most eBooks are simple conversions of paper books, the "eNotated Sailing Alone" is a completely new approach that takes advantage of the potential eBook technology offers to extend and enrich Slocum’s writing in a way that’s convenient to use while still unobtrusive to the reader.<br /><br />Based on the 1901 edition of "Sailing Alone Around the World" and including more than 60 original illustrations, this eNotated edition extends Slocum’s writing by providing a new layer of information behind the text the reader can access before, during, and after each chapter.<br /><br />For instance, in Chapter 15, when Slocum writes, “Taking things by and large as sailors say…,” Thomerson’s eNotation tells us Slocum means “Overall, or in most cases” and that “Sailing ‘by’ means toward the wind, sailing ‘large’ means away from the wind. Hence ‘by and large’ encompasses most of the possible options and implies ‘most of the time’”.<br /><br />Joshua Slocum was the first person to sail solo around the world and his account of the voyage is adventure writing at its best - but his colorful story telling is filled with 19th century sailing terms, geographical references, and idioms that may be lost to the modern reader. Chris Thomerson, a lifelong sailor and student of maritime history, provides the background and explanations readers need to thoroughly understand, appreciate, and enjoy Slocum’s classic by adding hundreds of electronic annotations linked to words and phrases in Slocum’s original text.<br /><br />If you are going to read Slocum for the first time - or reread him after some years - you will best enjoy and most throughly understand him with this unique eNotated edition.

Those who play baseball are, in my opinion, in some ways special persons. Baseball isn't just any sport, it doesn't just form real athletes. Baseball forms particular men. Like Giovanni Tommasini. A baseball player and today a writer. He passed through that field with a particular shape called a diamond. No one in Italy ever wrote about the baseball the way he did. From the first stories, to those Giovanni wrote later on, something was born also from our exchange of ideas, like the fantastic tale about the life of Agostino Liddi. The origin of Alex Liddi.<br />Then everything happened in a short time, because Tommasini’s tales fly fast, like the 90 miles fastball of a Major League pitcher. Up to this book which collects, like a single theme, all the tales of this great Ligurian writer. The first great baseball writer in Italy.<br />Those who played baseball are special persons.<br />When you will get to the end of this book, you will understand why.<br />
