The world was electrified in 1973 when Enter the Dragon was released. Western audiences had never seen a screen hero with such charisma, on screen presence and athletic grace. Sadly, its star, Bruce Lee, died three weeks before its release -- yet, on the basis of Enter the Dragon and four other Hong Kong productions, Bruce Lee has become an immortal icon, a man with a following that reaches every corner of the globe with an almost religious fervor. What is it about Bruce Lee that captures the attention of so many? Remembering Bruce reveals the real Bruce Lee, a passionate man whose martial arts skill and philosophical teachings have attracted generations to his message. More than an actor, Bruce Lee was a teacher who inspired countless people to honestly express themselves and become better human beings. Remembering Bruce examines Lee's legacy not just as a star and martial artist, but as a teacher and motivator. Each chapter explores a different side of Bruce Lee: -- A martial artist whose almost superhuman abilities transformed the sport -- A movie star, the first international Asian star (and his complete filmography) -- The philosopher, and the source of his values, beliefs and discipline -- The family man, devoted husband and father -- His legend, and information on the new Bruce Lee Historical Society -- The legacy, including college courses taught on his philosophical concepts.Of the many books on Bruce Lee, most deal with the mechanics of his art or are repetitive biographies. Remembering Bruce is special. Written by an educated fan who is also a martial artist, Remembering Bruce unveils the truth behind the Bruce Lee myth: that Bruce Lee was much more thana chop-socky actor -- indeed, that he was an innovative thinker, a great mind of his time whose legacy will endure.

Even four decades after the passing of Asian martial-arts superstar Bruce Lee, his achievements still attract adoration from millions of movie fans. The biggest fan of all may be Jon Benn, who befriended the high-kicking hero while playing "the Big Boss", a villain in Lees acclaimed 1972 movie "The Way of the Dragon". In this tell-tale autobiography, Jon reminisces fondly about his experiences with Lee and a lifetime of other adventures. From facing Lees fists of fury to riding in a cowboy posse, from almost starting the Third World War to a nude scene with sex symbol Bo Derek, much has happened to Jon for the sake of appearing in movies. But thats not all. From exploring ancient Mexican temples and falling into a volcano to eavesdropping on communists in Cold War Europe, from doing business with former Philippines dictator Ferdinand Marcos to girls-in-hot-pants waving Passports to Pleasure, one heck of a lot has happened to Jon away from the cameras too.

Bruce Chatwin's death in 1989 brought a meteoric career to an abrupt end, since he burst onto the literary scene in 1977 with his first book, In Patagonia. Chatwin himself was different things to different people: a journalist, a photographer, an art collector, a restless traveller and a bestselling author; he was also a married man, an active homosexual, a socialite who loved to mix with the rich and famous, and a single-minded loner who explored the limits of extreme solitude. From unrestricted access to Chatwin's private notebooks, diaries and letters, Nicholas Shakespeare has compiled the definitive biography of one of the most charismatic and elusive literary figures of our time.

"Molly Ivins, Texas columnist and wry observer of American culture, called 1968 'the year everything happened.' 1968 finds America engulfed in political and racial turmoil, assassinations, and a war seemingly without end. The year finds Tom Windham trying to deal with a few of life's basics - love, death, God, and sex. A sophomore at a conservative university in Dallas and the veteran of an upbringing in a small East Texas town, Tom sits uncomfortably on the cusp of adulthood. He is joined there by his roommate Brandeis. Along with the young women in their lives, their college friends, and their families, they experience the joys, struggles and tragedies of the year on a human scale. While the events of the operatic year keep intervening, changes in American attitudes toward sex, race, women, war and religion are also reflected in Wild Goose Moon"--Publisher description.

This updated edition of Pet Loss and Human Emotion is a step-by-step guide to leading clients through this special kind of grief. Includes resources and a section on pet loss and natural disasters. As society accepts that grieving over the death of a loved one is not only normal, but healthy and necessary, grieving over the loss of a pet is often seen differently. Expressed feelings often go unvalidated when in truth, pet loss is a unique form of grief that can be quite intense and debilitating, increasing an individual's vulnerability to subsequent stress and leaving them feeling isolated and misunderstood. Pet loss needs to be addressed by therapists and others in the helping professions, to better enable them to help their clients through the loss of their companion animals. This unique guide is written for all professionals helping clients deal with the loss of a pet, and serves as a practical introduction to the field of human-animal bonding. Citing several case studies, it describes various techniques for helping clients when the bond with a pet is broken.
