She soon becomes a passionate horsewoman, intent on riding her way to the top. Her ascent takes an unexpected turn when compassion becomes the key component to success after she discovers an entirely new paradigm regarding equine understanding and practices. This understanding leads her to walk away completely from riding and training horses and into a world where relationship is all that matters. These innovative currents of change reveal themselves to be demanding and controversial, but also exceptionally rewarding and unavoidably far-reaching into Ren's personal life. She embarks on a wild quest of radical transformation, finding an ever-deepening compassion for herself and all life around her. This book is the story of a woman's metamorphosis through her falls, rises, and life-changing insights, under the wise and benevolent guidance of a powerful animal.

HEAVEN RIDE is a techno-thriller about two loyal friends who unlock secrets of the human soul and invent a device that ejects the soul and long-term memory on its path to heaven, and then brings it back. The "Pod" enables them to build Heaven Ride into the most lucrative empire the world has ever known, until ruthless rivals embark on a campaign of deceit, treachery and betrayal to wrest it away for their own insidious plan. This quandary of science and morality may change the way you think about heaven and the afterlife ... FOREVER. * * * David Brownington, a brilliant entrepreneurial mastermind with a leading business incubator, comes in contact with a mysterious gadget that measures wavelengths never seen before. His close friend, JW Gomez, a third-year Ph.D. candidate, supercedes the boundaries of his doctoral studies using a bio-pod that creates out-of-body experiences. Driven by memories of his little brother who perished in a gruesome accident as a child, JW's extra-curricular studies of sudden traumatic death lead to the astonishing discovery of the human soul. When David and JW merge these devices, they stumble upon the highway to heaven. Each of them falls in love as their miraculous invention takes the world by storm. Millions make the trip. As Heaven Ride prospers, its repercussions ripple throughout society. Protests, bombs and kidnappings threaten to shut it down, posing risks to David, JW, their friends and families. Long after Heaven Ride becomes a household word, startling revelations put David and JW in the crosshairs of dangerous men seeking ultimate power. With HEAVEN RIDE, John Eccleston and Kerry Gleason have woven an intense tale of ambition, success, friendship, betrayal, greed and corruption.

Cycling as a way of life and mode of transportation is on the rise in city after city around the world. For those looking to dip their proverbial toes into the waters of urban cycling the prospect at times can be rather intimidating. What kind of bike should I ride? A skinny-wheeled high-end road bike? A fixie? A chunky city commuter bike? A department store bike? How about fashion? Do I have to wear brightly colored skin-tight Lycra outfits? Can I just wear normal clothes? How do I lug my gear around? The Bohemian Guide to Urban Cycling takes the reader into the world and workings of cycling in the city to uncover the essentials to how to join in on the cycling revolution. Your bicycling guide on this journey is a card-carrying bohemian living in Portland. By using the bike-crazy city of Portland as the backdrop, this book covers all of the basics needed to bike comfortably in the city and to know what the heck you're talking about ... from bike selection to fashion to bike lanes to gentrification and more. After reading this you'll know precisely what to ride, how to ride, what to wear, and how to talk like an insider. Well, maybe not, but it'll still be a fun journey together.But this book is more than about urban-cycling fashion and high-end bikes. It also plunges headlong into conversations about mobility, equity, race, and justice. If there is going to be a book about all-things cycling in the city it must delve into these uncomfortable topics in order to develop a more holistic view of urban cycling. The bottom line must be to affirm all kinds of people pedaling through the streets of our cities on anything that rolls.

‘Who gave the drugs to the Beatles? I didn’t invent those things. I bought it from someone who got it from somebody. We never invented the stuff.’ – John Lennon Riding So High charts the Beatles’ extraordinary odyssey from teenage drinking and pill-popping, to cannabis, LSD, the psychedelic Summer of Love and the darkness beyond. Drugs were central to the Beatles’ story from the beginning. The acid, pills and powders helped form bonds, provided escape from the chaos of Beatlemania, and inspired colossal leaps in songwriting and recording. But they also led to break-ups, breakdowns, drug busts and prison. The only full-length study of the Beatles and drugs, Riding So High tells of getting stoned, kaleidoscope eyes, excess, loss and redemption, with a far-out cast including speeding Beatniks, a rogue dentist, a script-happy aristocratic doctor, corrupt police officers and Hollywood Vampires. ‘The deeper you go, the higher you fly...’

"The horse makes me better." Sallie Stewart suffered a traumatic brain injury when her Andalusian stallion, Escogido XXV, lost his footing and fell over while she was riding him. Sallie hit the ground first, and then Esco landed on Sallie's head, causing facial fractures and a brain injury that dramatically changed her life. A successful real estate broker and dressage rider at the time of the accident, Sallie had been leading a happy life with her husband, children, and four horses. After Esco fell on her, she lost her memory, her balance, and her ability to perform the most basic tasks. She couldn't hold a job or shake the overwhelming fear that replaced the confidence she once felt. While her husband and sons taught her to walk, talk, dress, and feed herself, Sallie's greatest healing was still to come. With her personal life in disarray and her family's finances in tatters, Sallie was contemplating suicide when she received a life-changing phone call from her dressage coach, Mike Osinski. Osinski calmed the traumatized horse and challenged Sallie to conquer her fears. As she progressed in her lessons, Sallie recovered her memories and developed a new sense of self. She discovered that her deepest healing took place on the back of the very horse that had fallen on her. "Escogido XXV: The Chosen" tells the story of a courageous woman, a compassionate trainer, an extraordinary horse, and their determination to heal their accidental wounds.

Crony capitalism and cozy relations between governments and local business groups have been widely considered as the root cause for the crisis that has swept East Asia in the second half of 1997, leading to the demise of Asia's longest serving president, President Suharto. Prior to the onset of the crisis, several policy analysts and observers of emerging market economies had underscored the increasing influence of large business groups on policymaking in these countries. This study seeks to address these issues by providing an integrated framework of analysis to understand and assess the role and influence of commercial power centers (CPCs)-on economic policymaking. We define CPCs as: Any group, combination, or coalition of large aggregate size, that seeks to influence the design and implementation of government economic policies to suit its diversified economic interests. The analytical approach is three-pronged: (1) describing and critiquing literature on interest groups, collective action, and economic regulation to develop a model describing the behavioral characteristics of CPCs placed in a quasi-market for political influence on economic policymaking; (2) employing historical analogies appropriate for understanding today's emerging market economies; (3) applying the model to Indonesia to add texture to the analysis and illustrate its usefulness.

M. Anthony's first novel. He lives in California where he's at work on his next book.This review is from: Alone Among People (Paperback)A Compelling and Heart Warming Story, September 25, 2012"Alone Among People is at once an engaging, moving story and a provocative statement about the thin line between thriving and sinking into an abyss as inescapable as quicksand. Its timeless and uplifting messages of hope conquering despair, healing borne of love and care, and peace at discovering one's identity are an inspiration. The author's empathy for the characters and their plight betrays knowledge of what he writes, and offers the reader a unique glimpse into a vulnerable and intimate place… his heart. I recommend this book to anyone who has traveled through the anguish of darkness and longed for the light; it may just guide your way."
