The Diary of a Nose

by Jean-Claude Ellena

An intimate exploration of inspiration and creativity, from the "parfumeur exclusif" of the house of Hermès. A scent has incantatory powers, capable of transporting you to your past, of kindling fantasies, of creating a vivid mise en scène--literally out of thin air. In the hands of the truly great, perfume creation is a kind of alchemy. Where does inspiration for this visceral art come from? How does one capture the essence of emotions, of desire? Jean-Claude Ellena has a sublime gift. As "parfumeur exclusif" (or "the nose") for Hermès, he elevates fragrance to an art form. A "writer of perfume," his concoctions are as finely composed and evocative as a haiku. He is also a conjurer of sorts: "I create an illusion that is actually stronger than reality . . . you enter the scent and follow the path." The Diary of a Nose is a collection of Ellena's meditations on the world of scents, and what stirs his creation of some of the world's most desired fragrances. Inspiration can come from anywhere--a market stall, a landscape, or even the movement of calligraphy. Though each smell has its own distinct character, a gifted perfumer creates olfactory experiences that are intensely personal and unique, that blossom on the body and leave a trace of us lingering after we have left a room. Seductive, delicate, and elegant as any of Ellena's creations, The Diary of a Nose seeks to capture the most elusive facets of this rarefied and mysterious art.

Diary of a Radical Cancer Warrior: Fighting Cancer and Capitalism at the Cellular Level

by Fred Ho Magdalena Gomez Cynthia G. Franklin

When American saxophonist and social activist Fred Ho was diagnosed with stage 3b colo-rectal cancer in 2006 he underwent immediate surgery to remove the tumor and began preparing for chemotherapy. Within days his friends mobilized to arrange grocery deliveries, transport, companionship, and housekeeping duties-they called themselves "Warriors for Fred."Fred chose to write his astonishing cancer memoir as a diary, acknowledging that all the greatest warriors from Sun Tzu to swordsman Murasashi to Bruce Lee wrote daily diaries because warfare against a most formidable enemy will be won, ultimately, on the philosophical level. With incredibly detailed entries Fred talks frankly about his battle-his meticulous research, his various treatments, his successes, and his failures. Together, he and his loved ones discuss plans for future artistic projects: a new opera on Antony and Cleopatra, a project with a native Alaskan totem carver, and an underwater ballet for synchronized swimmers. He learns to find joy in the simple things: the beauty of the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, a fresh pork bun, or a night of Battlestar Galactica on DVD. Above all, we learn what it means to truly live in the present-through Fred's unflinching description of the effects of colon cancer-and about his search not just for "a cure" in a medical sense, but for true healing. For Fred, this includes understanding the way of the warrior-one who fights for beauty, justice, health, equity, and sustainability.

Dibs: In Search of Self

by Virginia M. Axline

From the book: "Sometimes he sat mute and unmoving all morning or crawled about the schoolroom floor oblivious to the other children or to his teacher. At times he had violent temper tantrums. No one knew whether he was retarded or had suffered brain damage at birth. His own parents had judged him mentally defective. But Dibs was none of these. He was a brilliant, lonely child trapped in a prison of fear and rage, a prison from which only he could release himself. And through psychotherapy and love, he did."

Die Wise

by Stephen Jenkinson

Die Wise does not offer seven steps for coping with death. It does not suggest ways to make dying easier. It pours no honey to make the medicine go down. Instead, with lyrical prose, deep wisdom, and stories from his two decades of working with dying people and their families, Stephen Jenkinson places death at the center of the page and asks us to behold it in all its painful beauty. Die Wise teaches the skills of dying, skills that have to be learned in the course of living deeply and well. Die Wise is for those who will fail to live forever. Dying well, Jenkinson writes, is a right and responsibility of everyone. It is not a lifestyle option. It is a moral, political, and spiritual obligation each person owes their ancestors and their heirs. Die Wise dreams such a dream, and plots such an uprising. How we die, how we care for dying people, and how we carry our dead: this work makes our capacity for a village-mindedness, or breaks it.Table of ContentsThe Ordeal of a Managed DeathStealing Meaning from DyingThe Tyrant HopeThe Quality of LifeYes, But Not Like ThisThe WorkSo Who Are the Dying to You?

by Stephen Lanzalotta

Eat bread and cheese, drink wine-and lose weight!The secret lies in an ancient mathematical formula now transformed into ... THE DIET CODE.

It really is the staff of life--as long as you eat it along with the right amount of fat or protein; * Experience natural weight control--choose and properly prepare healthful, readily available foods as they did during the Renaissance. THE DIET CODE is a unique approach to eating well based on a mathematical phenomenon that's been around for centuries but has never before been applied to diet.

Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core of Nutrition Fads and a Guide to Healthy Eating for the Rest of US

by Matt Fitzgerald

From the national bestselling author of Racing Weight, Matt Fitzgerald exposes the irrationality, half-truths, and downright impossibility of a "single right way" to eat, and reveals how to develop rational, healthy eating habits. From "The Four Hour Body," to "Atkins," there are diet cults to match seemingly any mood and personality type. Everywhere we turn, someone is preaching the "One True Way" to eat for maximum health. Paleo Diet advocates tell us that all foods less than 12,000 years old are the enemy. Low-carb gurus demonize carbs, then there are the low-fat prophets. But they agree on one thing: there is only one true way to eat for maximum health. The first clue that that is a fallacy is the sheer variety of diets advocated. Indeed, while all of these competing views claim to be backed by "science," a good look at actual nutritional science itself suggests that it is impossible to identify a single best way to eat. Fitzgerald advocates an agnostic, rational approach to eating habits, based on one's own habits, lifestyle, and genetics/body type. Many professional athletes already practice this "Good Enough" diet, and now we can too and ditch the brainwashing of these diet cults for good.

Diet for a New America 25th Anniversary Edition

by John Robbins

Originally published in 1987, Diet for a New America awakened the conscience of a nation with its startling examination of the food we buy and eat -- and the moral, economic, and medical price we pay for it. Drawing a clear line connecting America's factory farm system with disease, animal cruelty, and ecological crises, Robbins makes perhaps the most eloquent argument for vegetarianism ever published. Robbins walked away from his family's business -- the Baskin-Robbins ice cream empire -- to pursue his dream of promoting a healthy society that practices "compassionate stewardship of a balanced ecosystem." In Diet for a New America he presents both a disturbing portrait of our current system and a vision for the future that will educate and empower readers to change.
