Jingle Jangle Morning is the story of how folk and rock merged in the 1960s to create folk-rock, injecting social consciousness and poetic lyricism into popular music to scale heights that neither folk nor rock could have reached without blending. It draws on more than 100 first-hand interviews with key musicians, producers, promoters, and journalists, from stars like Roger McGuinn of the Byrds, Donovan, John Sebastian of the Lovin' Spoonful, and Judy Collins to behind-the-scenes producers and cult artists. Starting with the folk revival of the early 1960s, it covers the folk-rock movement from the first stars to electrify folk (especially the Byrds and Bob Dylan) to stars like Buffalo Springfield, Joni Mitchell, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as underrated greats (like Richard & Mimi Fariña, Fred Neil, Tim Buckley, and Nick Drake to nearly unknown cult artists. Previously published in two separate volumes as Turn! Turn! Turn! and Eight Miles High, this combines those books into one, adding 15,000 words of updates and new material. It also adds a 75,000-word mini-book with in-depth descriptions of nearly 200 folk-rock recordings from the era, which together would comprise the ideal 1960s folk-rock box set. All branches of the decade's folk-rock are covered, from early electric folk-rock, protest folk-rock, and folk-rock-psychedelia to singer-songwriters, country-rock, and the distinctively British form of folk-rock.

In Jinxed, smart, saucy sleuth Regan Reilly faces a new challenge -- the case of the missing wedding guest. Regan, an L. A. -based private detective, returns to her office after a vacation with her beau, Jack "no relation" Reilly. Their tour of the wineries in Napa Valley and Santa Barbara County is cut short when Jack has to fly back to New York City, where he is the head of the Major Case Squad of the NYPD. Their last stop had been at Altered States, a run-down winery owned by three siblings who are all former hippies -- Lilac, Earl, and Leon Weldon. Not knowing how soon it would be put to use, Regan leaves her business card behind. Within minutes of being back to work, Regan gets an excited call from Lilac. The Weldon family has been invited to the wedding of ninety-three-year-old Lucretia Standish, a former silent-screen star, who made a killing in a dot-com before it went bankrupt. Lucretia had been married to the Weldons' Uncle Haskell and had invested the money she inherited from Haskell in the dot-com. Lucretia's maid, Phyllis, clues Lilac in on the fact that Lucretia plans to give the Weldons $2 million each -- if they all show up at the wedding. The wedding is two days away, and there is only one problem -- Lilac's daughter, Whitney, aka Freshness, a young actress, has taken off on one of her go-with-the-flow weekends. Whitney is out of touch and goes where the wind blows. If it doesn't blow her back into town by Sunday morning, the Weldon family will be out $8 million. Regan's job is to find Whitney.

Edward knows Whitney will recognize him as the con man she'd met in acting class in New York. He wants to say "I do" to Lucretia and her millions before Whitney can protest. When Edward finds out that Regan Reilly has been hired to find the missing Whitney, he gives the order to get rid of her as well. Meanwhile, Lucretia is befriended by a gang of bikers, the story of her upcoming nuptials is featured on national television news, and wildfires are threatening to consume the barn where Whitney is being held captive.

Jitterbug Perfume is an epic. Which is to say, it begins in the forests of ancient Bohemia and doesn't conclude until nine o'clock tonight (Paris time). It is a saga, as well. A saga must have a hero, and the hero of this one is a janitor with a missing bottle. The bottle is blue, very, very old, and embossed with the image of a goat-horned god. If the liquid in the bottle actually is the secret essence of the universe, as some folks seem to think, it had better be discovered soon because it is leaking and there is only a drop or two left.
The long-awaited, complete guide to the popular, vigorous American method of yoga that is deeply rooted in ancient wisdom and scriptures. "In this day and age of health and fitness trends, it is assuring to know that Sharon and David encourage their students to draw inspiration from the classical texts of Yoga and timeless scriptural sources. What I appreciate so much about David and Sharon is how they help their Yoga students to understand and appreciate the wisdom of all the great saints and jivamuktas who have contributed to raising consciousness. Ultimately, it is Self-Realization, that is the true goal of Yoga."-SRI SWAMI SATCHIDANANDA. Creators of the extremely popular Jivamukti Yoga method and cofounders of the New York City studios where it is taught, Sharon Gannon and David Life present their unique style of yoga for the first time in book form. As they explain their intensely physical and spiritual system of flowing postures, they provide inspiring expert instruction to guide you in your practice.Unlike many books about yoga, Jivamukti Yoga focuses not only on the physical postures but also on how they evolved-the origins of the practices in yoga's ancient sacred texts and five-thousand-year-old traditions--the psychotherapeutic benefits that accrue with a steady practice, and the spiritual power that is set free when energy flows throughout the mind and body. Jivamukti Yoga, which means "soul liberation," guides your body and soul into spiritual freedom, physical strength, peace of mind, better health, and Self-realization--the ultimate goal of any practice. Gannon and Life help you understand each of the practices that comprise the yoga path to enlightenment: AHIMSA--The Way of Compassion: choosing nonviolence, respecting all life, practicing vegetarianism, living free of prejudice. ASANA--The Way of Connection to the Earth: postures and sequences, breathing, transforming energy, understanding the bandhas. KARMA--The Way of Action: creating good karma, giving thanks. NADAM--The Way of Sacred Music: appreciating the sacred sounds of yoga. MEDITATION--The Way of the Witness: how to sit still and move inward. BHAKTI--The Way of Devotion to God: living with love, grace, and peace. Whatever yoga you practice, Jivamukti Yoga will help you to strengthen and deepen that practice and lead you onto a path of spiritual clarity and self-discovery. "If there is only one book you read about the practice of Yoga, this should be the one. Sharon and David are deeply dedicated students and teachers of Yoga who have the rare capacity to translate their profound understanding to the reader. This book is for anyone who wishes to find transformation through Yoga. I'm grateful for their work and teaching."--STEPHAN RECHTSCHAFFEN, MD Co-founder & CEO, Omega Institute.
