3. So Far from Home Lost and Found in Our Brave New World (Large Print 16pt) - Margaret J. Wheatley

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Currently in stock

We live in a time of increasing polarization and irrationality, like a Tower of Babel with no distinction between fact and opinion, where information no longer changes minds. In cyberspace, we are bombarded with constant distractions and narcissistic self - making activities. Instant judgment and blame have replaced rational thinking. Organizations are bloated by bureaucracy and meaningless measures. Those working for positive change become exhausted, ill, and heartsick as their good work is ignored, underfunded, or attacked.
We need to acknowledge that we're lost in a world far different than we hoped for. We need new maps to navigate our brave new world. In Leadership and the New Science, Wheatley provided encouraging maps for how to design organizations based on living systems' capacity for inclusion, change, and adaptation. But in the twenty years since that book's publication, she's seen that in spite of our best efforts, the world that has emerged is on a destructive trajectory that won't be reversed by our working harder, finding new methods, or forming better networks.
But Wheatley has not written a book to increase our despair. Quite the contrary. Her intention is to inspire us to do our work with greater resolve and energy, using maps that won't mislead us. So Far from Home offers maps of two kinds. Using the newest of the new sciences, Wheatley shows how different dynamics interacted to create this harsh new world. A second kind of map invites us to choose a new role for ourselves as warriors for the human spirit. We develop the skills we need most - insight, bravery, decency, compassion - as we look honestly at this complex, difficult world. Clarity gives us enduring strength to discover our right work and create meaningful lives in this dark time.
So Far from Home is a startlingly honest, profoundly reflective, and yet paradoxically down - to - earth book rooted in the day - to - day experiences we all share but seen with fresh eyes. It is both affirming and provoking, calling us to reexamine our expectations and redefine our role for the work ahead. It is Wheatley's most personal, heartfelt work to date.

11. Leonardo DiCaprio The Biography - Douglas Wight

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

I'm the king of the world!' That was the cry from Leonardo DiCaprio as he stood astride the bow in Titanic - the movie that would go on to smash all records, raking in a whopping GBP1.1 billion worldwide. Now, few Hollywood movers and shakers would dispute that statement as Leo has rocketed to become the highest paid actor in the world, earning as estimated GBP50 million in 2011 alone. And his position looks sets to be secure for some time to come as the release of the new 3D version of James Cameron's epic heralds another sensational year in the life of Hollywood's hottest talent, that will also see him take on the lead role in a new adaptation of The Great Gatsby and see him cast as a villain in Quentin Tarantino's new blockbuster Django Unchained. It's a far cry from the heart - throb's humble beginnings when he had to scrape for parts in TV commericals and soap operas before catching the eye in Baz Luhrmann's stylish Romeo and Juliet and then achieving worldwide superstardom with Titanic. Cementing his reputation with captivating performances in films like Catch Me If You Can and The Departed, DiCaprio won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Howard Hughes in The Aviator. A keen environmentalist and conservationist, he has given millions to good causes around the globe and has never been shy about wearing his political ideas on his sleeve. Yet, although he's spent over 15 years at the top of his profession, Leonardo remains something of an enigma. He has famously dated some of the world's most beautiful women but seems no nearer to settling down and his often daring movie choices suggest someone still striving for perfection despite his stunning successes.

12. The Passionate Jesus What We Can Learn from Jesus about Love, Fear, Grief, Joy and Living Authentically (Large Print 16pt) - Peter Wallace

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 22.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

A fresh and moving portrait of Jesus as a model for how to live more authentic,
honest and meaningful lives by fully experiencing our emotions in the love of God.
Many depictions of Jesus show him as a character who coolly and calmly floats above the grit and grime of human existence. He doesn't hurt, he doesn't fear, he doesn't laugh, and most tragically, he doesn't love very passionately. He seems not to feel at all. But a closer look at the Bible reveals something surprisingly different.
In this eye - opening spiritual study, Peter Wallace examines Jesus's actions rather than just his teachings to uncover a passionate figure who was involved, present, connected, honest and direct with others. He was one who was ''deeply moved,'' as the writer of John's gospel put it - one who knew and embodied the emotions he felt and expressed them in honest, clear and life - giving ways.
Through Wallace's deeply personal insights and compelling stories and examples, you will be encouraged to model this passionate Jesus by building personal authenticity in every area of your own life, particularly in your self - acceptance and self - expression, your relationships with others and, above all, your relationship with God.

13. The Bad Boys of Footy (Large Print 16pt) - Matthew Webber

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Crossing all four winter codes, The Bad Boys of Footy shines a critical light on the tales of a host contemporary footballing miscreants those who've tripped up, boozed, lied, cheated, whacked, thumped, kicked, scratched, frittered, robbed, and bottomed out.
We read about footballers every day. We celebrate their physical feats, their freakish athleticism, their guile and poise. We rejoice in their glories. We feel their hurt. We share their tears.
But more and more, football is not enough.
Nowadays off - field behaviour steals more than its share of column space. Private lives are no longer. Mistakes are magnified. And we in the outer are voyeurs. We delve for details. We delight in knowing everything. We are judge and juror. Sometimes we are executioner. And when footballers stumble our damnation is usually ruthless. In the end we measure men to a standard we'd never come close to matching ourselves.
Everybody screws up.
Of course they do.
But no one screws up like a modern day gladiator.

19. Within Sight of Home! - A Series of Readings for the Aged - Forbes Winslow

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 6.49  - Click book title for availability and further details

Every human being has his own peculiar sorrows and trials, known very often only to himself, unsuspected even by his dearest friends-but none the less hard to bear for all that. As life goes on, and we become what is termed "grown up," our anxieties and cares grow up with us too. Every day, every hour, has its troubles; were it not for the grace of God-we would be vanquished and utterly cast down. As life goes on-a change takes place in the very strongest of us, according to the law which works throughout nature, and causes all things to tend to decay. As we become aged: our health and strength begin to fail us, unaccustomed pains seize our limbs, we are easily fatigued, our memory is impaired, our hands shake, our sight is dim, our hearing imperfect; we begin to feel that we are shut out from the world, that we are out of date, that we are looked upon by our young people as belonging to a distant generation of beings, as uninteresting relics of the past. In Within Sight of Home! Forbes Winslow addresses growing older giving peace to the process and reminders of hope for believers.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

God's imperatives for us - to practice peacemaking, love others and build community - all begin with authentic dialogue.

Shows how to enhance the work of the soul by engaging the world around us.
Lays out practical guidelines for dialogue and how they work in an imperfect world.
Includes extended anecdotes of dialogue in action, from resolutions of interpersonal conflict to difficult dialogues on some of the most divisive issues of our age.
