In December 1995, Jean-Dominique Bauby, the 43-year-old editor of French Elle, suffered a massive stroke that left him permanently paralyzed, a victim of “locked in syndrome.” Once known for his gregariousness and wit, Bauby now finds himself imprisoned in an inert body, able to communicate only by blinking his left eye. The miracle is that in doing so he was able to compose this stunningly eloquent memoir.In a voice that is by turns wistful and mischievous, angry and sardonic, Bauby gives us a celebration of the liberating power of consciousness: what it is like to spend a day with his children, to imagine lying in bed beside his wife, to conjure up the flavor of delectable meals even as he is fed through at tube. Most of all, this triumphant book lets us witness an indomitable spirit and share in the pure joy of its own survival. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Panic

From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver comes an extraordinary novel of fear, friendship, courage, and hope that Kirkus Reviews says "will have readers up until the wee hours," School Library Journal raves is "fast-paced and captivating," and E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars, calls "a thrill a minute." Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a poor town of twelve thousand people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do. Heather never thought she would compete in panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors. She'd never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought. Dodge has never been afraid of panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game; he's sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he's not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for. For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.

TINKERBELLE — The epic story of Robert Manry's transatlantic voyage

There is no dream so large that it can't fit into a tiny boat.TINKERBELLE tells the real story about a man's boyhood dream and how he made his dream come true. This is ROBERT MANRY'S inspiring tale of how he became enchanted with the notion of sailing the high seas, and how, years later, he set sail on a voyage that has fascinated sailors, adventurers, and dreamers, ever since. It is the gripping story of his 13-foot sloop, Tinkerbelle-the smallest boat that had ever crossed the Atlantic nonstop.The son of missionary parents, Robert Manry was born 7,000 feet above sea level in the Himalayan Mountains and about as far away from the ocean as one could be in India. He was raised and schooled with his brother and sisters, in Landour, India, and it was there that a visiting German adventurer ignited his imagination with the idea of making an ocean voyage.Manry moved to the United States in 1937 to attend college, and after an interlude with the infantry in Europe, he received a degree in Political Science. He worked as a newspaper reporter in Ohio and Pennsylvania, and married in 1950. He and his wife, Virginia, relocated to Cleveland when he joined the staff of the Plain Dealer as a copy editor. Robert settled into a prototypical American post-war life, in a modest suburban tract house east of Cleveland. He commuted between home in Willowick and his evening work shift, and by all appearances, was just a "regular American guy" - happily married, with one daughter, one son, a dog, a cat, a car-and a little boat.Manry weaves the tale of how his dream was born, and describes the reasons for his voyage, finding a boat, learning to sail her, planning, fitting out, and finally, the thrilling adventure itself.Told with warmth, modesty, and humor, this engrossing story has inspired countless voyages since its original publication in 1966-an adventure born of youthful zeal, nurtured by desire, tempered by trial and error, and at last, fulfilled.The author departed from Falmouth, Massachusetts on 1 June 1965, bound for Falmouth, England, some 3,200 miles across the North Atlantic. Among his extraordinary experiences, he was awakened one morning by a submarine; swept overboard by broaching waves; tormented by weird hallucinations; challenged by gear failure and loneliness; received a feast from a passing ship captain, and was tracked down in mid-ocean by an enterprising journalist who cleverly "scooped" the story of his voyage from Manry's own Plain Dealer colleagues. After 78 days, he made a joyous arrival in England, accompanied by an armada of small craft and thousands of cheering spectators. Begun as one man's secret goal, Tinkerbelle's voyage ended in a worldwide media frenzy that forever changed the lives of the story's main participants.Triumphant in every way, the book remains an enduring treatise on how to accomplish what others dismiss as impossible, if not downright crazy. One of the great songs of the sea, Robert Manry's tale has the alluring effect of happily persuading readers that they too could sail a small boat across the wide blue seas. More than that, TINKERBELLE provides a merry, make-it-happen road map of how anyone can achieve his or her dream's desire.This extended e-book edition includes the original text-plus a gallery of restored photographs, the logbook of Tinkerbelle's voyage, an afterword, a new portrait of Robert by his son, and a link to dozens of Robert Manry's previously unpublished photographs.

As Lessons from Neverland opens, a warm Southwestern breeze suggests that we are in for a peaceful ride. Yet with each bend in the road, the reader finds the journey increasingly more unexpected and exhilarating. This gripping memoir introduces us to a remarkable woman who has had to endure the most terrible tragedy any mother can face. And just when we begin to believe our heroine has made it safely to the other side, we are drawn into a mystery that culminates in another type of tragedy altogether. The fact that the author emerges in tact, inspired and on a mission to use her losses and life experiences to inspire, guide, and coach others is nothing short of miraculous. Most women would have crumbled under the extreme stress and strain. But then, most women don’t have their own personal Peter Pan and his Lessons from Neverland guiding them through life.
