The founder of POZ magazine shares ´´a captivating...eyewitness account from inside the AIDS epidemic´´ (Next) and ´´a moving, multidecade memoir of one gay man´s life´´ (San Francisco Chronicle). As a politics-obsessed Georgetown freshman, Sean Strub arrived in Washington, DC, from Iowa in 1976, with a plum part-time job running a senate elevator in the US Capitol. He also harbored a terrifying secret: his attraction to men. As Strub explored the capital´s political and social circles, he discovered a parallel world where powerful men lived double lives shrouded in shame. When the AIDS epidemic hit in the early 1980s, Strub was living in New York and soon found himself attending ´´more funerals than birthday parties´´. Scared and angry, he turned to radical activism to combat discrimination and demand research. Strub takes you through his own diagnosis and inside ACT UP, the organization that transformed a stigmatized cause into one of the defining political movements of our time. From the New York of Studio 54 and Andy Warhol´s Factory to the intersection of politics and burgeoning LGBT and AIDS movements, Strub´s story crackles with history. He recounts his role in shocking AIDS demonstrations at St. Patrick´s Cathedral as well as at the home of US Senator Jesse Helms. With an astonishing cast of characters, including Tennessee Williams, Gore Vidal, Keith Haring, Bill Clinton, and Yoko Ono, this is a vivid portrait of a tumultuous era ´´[with] the suspense and horror of Paul Monette´s memoir Borrowed Time and the drama of Larry Kramer´s play The Normal Heart.... What a lot of action - and life - there is in this gripping book.´´ (The Washington Post). Photo: Iowa City Press-Citizen 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Drake.

Written by a highly respected fitness journalist, Mindful Running offers an engaging and highly practical guide to how mindfulness can both optimise sporting performance and improve general health. The benefits of mindfulness for general well-being have been discussed extensively, but little has been written about how mindfulness can be applied to running. In this book, leading health and fitness journalist Mackenzie L. Havey explores how combining mindfulness with running can not only improve sporting performance but can also enhance overall health. Through easy-to-understand explanations, Mindful Running reveals how runners can benefit from meditative practices and positive thinking and how the rhythmic breathing, physical effort and focus on training can aid mindfulness. This in turn can help prevent injuries, enhance personal bests and improve the runner´s psychological strength and life balance. Havey´s grounded approach to the subject takes the user through a series of straightforward but effective exercises designed to increase self-awareness, develop concentration and improve endurance. With clear explanations of the physiological and psychological processes, supported by anecdotes and expert contributions from athletes, coaches and sport scientists, this book is an inspiring and invaluable guide for runners of all levels. 1.

When Lyndon Baines Johnson wanted to go somewhere, there was no stopping him. This dynamic president called for Air Force One as others summon a taxi - at a moment´s notice, whatever the hour or the weather. And the man who made sure that LBJ got his ride was General James U. Cross, the president´s hand-picked pilot, top military assistant, and personal confidante. The only Air Force One pilot to have a position, simultaneously, in the White House, General Cross is also the only member of LBJ´s inner circle who has not publicly offered his recollections of the president. Until now. In this book, he goes on the record, creating a fascinating, behind-the-scenes portrait of America´s complex, often contradictory, always larger-than-life 36th president. General Cross tells an engrossing story. In addition to piloting Air Force One around the globe, he served President Johnson in multiple capacities, including directing the Military Office in the White House; managing a secret two-million-dollar presidential emergency fund; supervising the presidential retreat at Camp David, the president´s entire transportation fleet, and the presidential bomb shelters; running the White House Mess; hiring White House social aides, including the president´s future son-in-law, Charles Robb; and writing condolence letters to the families of soldiers killed in Vietnam. This wide-ranging, around-the-clock access to President Johnson allowed Cross to witness events and share moments that add color and depth to our understanding of America´s arguably most demanding and unpredictable president. 1.
