Aufgewachsen in der Bronx, Puertoricanerin, die Kindheit prekär, der Vater Alkoholiker, die Mutter überfordert – Sonia Sotomayor war es nicht gerade in die Wiege gelegt, eines Tages Richterin am höchsten Gericht der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika zu werden. Mit einem großen Herzen und viel Humor erzählt diese Ausnahmefrau von ihrem Weg, aber nicht um sich dabei auf die Schulter zu klopfen, sondern um anderen Menschen mit ihrer eigenen Geschichte Mut zu machen. Ein hinreißendes, ansteckendes Buch über das Trotzdem und über die – wirklich wichtigen – Dinge des Lebens. „’Nach der Lektüre werden mich die Leser nach menschlichen Kriterien beurteilen’, schreibt Sonia Sotomayor. Wir, die wir in diesem Fall die Jury sind, finden sie einfach unwiderstehlich.“ Washingtonian „Überwältigende und stark geschriebene Memoiren zum Thema Identität und Persönlichkeitsfindung ... Offenherzig, scharf beobachtet und vor allem tief empfunden.“ The New York Times „Eine Frau, die weiß, wo sie herkommt und die die Kraft hat, uns dorthin mitzunehmen.“ The New York Times Book Review

Während des amerikanischen Bürgerkriegs stirbt Präsident Lincolns geliebter Sohn Willie mit elf Jahren. Laut Zeitungsberichten suchte der trauernde Vater allein das Grabmal auf, um seinen Sohn noch einmal in den Armen zu halten. Bei George Saunders wird daraus eine allumfassende Geschichte über Liebe und Verlust, wie sie origineller, faszinierender und grandioser nicht sein könnte. Im Laufe dieser Nacht, in der Abraham Lincoln von seinem Sohn Abschied nimmt, werden die Gespenster wach, die Geister der Toten auf dem Friedhof, aber auch die der Geschichte und der Literatur, reale wie erfundene, und mischen sich ein. Denn Willie Lincoln befindet sich im Zwischenreich zwischen Diesseits und Jenseits, in tibetischer Tradition Bardo genannt, und auf dem Friedhof in Georgetown entbrennt ein furioser Streit um die Seele des Jungen, ein vielstimmiger Chor, der in die eine große Frage mündet: Warum lieben wir überhaupt, wenn wir doch wissen, dass alles zu Ende gehen muss?

Packed with statistics, case-studies and examples, The Multichannel Retail Handbook is above all a practical guide. It provides useable tools and decision-frameworks. It offers actionable advice and recommendations. It takes the retailer to from "why-what-how" through to "when."

"Im Himmel war ich zu Hause; dort gehörte ich hin. An diesem Ort wollte ich sein, mehr als ich jemals irgendwo auf der Erde hatte sein wollen. Die Zeit war nicht mehr, und ich lebte einfach in der Gegenwart. Alle Sorgen, Ängste und Bedenken waren verschwunden. Ich war völlig bedürfnislos und fühlte mich vollkommen glücklich." Don Piper Bei einem schweren Verkehrsunfall wurde Don Pipers Auto von einem LKW völlig zerquetscht. Die Sanitäter konnten nur noch Pipers Tod feststellen. Sein lebloser Körper lag in dem Autowrack, doch seine Seele erlebte bereits die unbeschreibliche Schönheit des Himmels. 90 Minuten nach dem Unfall kehrte Don Piper wie durch ein Wunder ins Leben zurück. In den folgenden Monaten durchlebte er eine schmerzhafte Zeit der Rekonvaleszenz. Doch was ihn in dieser Zeit tröstete, waren die wunderbaren Erlebnisse im Himmel. Lange konnte und wollte Don Piper nicht über seine Nahtod-Erfahrungen reden, denn sie erschienen ihm zu heilig und zu persönlich. Doch nun lässt er seine Leser an diesem einzigartigen Erlebnis teilhaben. Erfahren Sie, wie sich sein Leben nach diesem Unfall grundlegend änderte. Und lassen auch Sie sich davon verändern! Mit über 4 Millionen verkauften Exemplaren ermutigte und tröstete dieser Bestseller bereits zahlreiche Menschen. Im Jahr 2006 wurde das Buch mit dem renommierten Platin-Award der Vereinigung evangelikaler Verleger (Evangelical Christian Publishers Association) ausgezeichnet. Es wurde inzwischen in 36 Sprachen übersetzt.
