Anyway

by Spencer Johnson Kent M. Keith

These ten principles were first articulated by Kent Keith as a student at Harvard in the 1960s. Since then, unbeknownst to him, they were quoted, circulated, and appropriated by countless people around the world and back again. They even served as a source of inspiration for Mother Teresa. Now, here are his commandments, the philosophy behind them, and the stories that bring them to life. The first five Paradoxical Commandments: People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway.

Anyway*: a story about me with 138 footnotes, 27 exaggerations, and 1 plate of spaghetti

by Arthur Salm

Reinventing yourself takes humor, heart, and a TON of footnotes!Max is a good kid--but you wouldn't know that if you met him at the boring family camp his parents dragged him to over the summer. There, for a few exciting weeks, Max reinvents himself as "Mad Max" and gains a bad-boy reputation for being daring, cool, and fearless. But when Max returns home, he finds it's easier to be fearless with strangers than it is among friends, and he is not particularly proud of the way his behavior over the summer hurt people. Can he find away to merge his adventurous alter ego with his true identity as a good guy? Peppered with humorous handwritten footnotes and doodles throughout, Anyway* perfectly captures the viewpoint of a young teen doing his best to find his place in the world--and an ideal balance between wise guy and wimp.

Anyway: The Seven Paradoxical Commandments: Finding Personal Meaning in a Crazy World

by Kent M. Keith

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. Be honest and frank anyway. The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway.

Anywhere but Here

by Mona Simpson

Anywhere But Here is a moving, often comic portrait of wise child Ann August and her mother, Adele, a larger-than-life American dreamer. As they travel through the landscape of their often conflicting ambitions, Ann and Adele bring to life a novel that is a brilliant exploration of the perennial urge to keep moving, even at the risk of profound disorientation. Simpson's first novel is ultimately a heart-rendering tale of a mother and daughter's invaluable relationship. "The two women in this book are American originals. Ann is a new Huck Finn, a tough, funny, resourceful love of a girl. Adele is like no one I've encountered, at once deplorable and admirable--and altogether believable."--Walker Percy"Anywhere But Here is a wonder: big, complex, masterfully written, it's an achievement that lands [Simpson] in the front ranks of our best novelists."--NewsweekFrom the Trade Paperback edition.

Anywhere or Not at All

by Peter Osborne

Contemporary art is the object of inflated and widely divergent claims. But what kind of discourse can open it up effectively to critical analysis? Anywhere or Not at All is a major philosophical intervention in art theory that challenges the terms of established positions through a new approach at once philosophical, historical, social and art-critical. Developing the position that "contemporary art is postconceptual art," the book progresses through a dual series of conceptual constructions and interpretations of particular works to assess the art from a number of perspectives: contemporaneity and its global context; art against aesthetic; the Romantic pre-history of conceptual art; the multiplicity of modernisms; transcategoriality; conceptual abstraction; photographic ontology; digitalization; and the institutional and existential complexities of art-space and art-time. Anywhere or Not at All maps out the conceptual space for an art that is both critical and contemporary in the era of global capitalism.

She's unlike any woman he's ever met. Soon the two are racing to return Mairie home to her dying brother with an extinct plant that might save him. Will she return in time? Will they survive the danger along the way? And, is the bond forming between them more than friendship? Is it love?In ANYWHERE YOU ARE, Constance O'Day-Flannery, the original "Queen of Time Travel Romance," mixes a timeless love story with a harrowing adventure that unites two souls born a century apart.

Anzio 1944: The Beleaguered Beachhead

by Peter Dennis Steven Zaloga

In January 1944, the Allies decided to land at Anzio in order to overcome the stalemate at Cassino.This amphibious landing has become one of the most controversial campaigns of World War II (1939-1945). Questionable decisions by the Allied leadership led to three months of World War I-style trench warfare, and the entire beachhead suffered from continuous German observation and bombardment. Vividly describing each thrust and counter-thrust, this book takes us through the agonizing struggle as each side sought to retain or regain mastery. It shows how Anzio proved to be a stepping stone not only to Rome but also to the liberation of Italy.

Aortic Aneurysms

by Gilbert R. Upchurch Jr. Enrique Criado

As life expectancy is extended, the incidence and occurrence of Aortic Aneurysms are becoming increasingly common. Until recently, the treatment of aortic disease was primarily surgical, carrying a high mortality rate among the high risk elderly population.

Upchurch Jr., Enrique Criado, and a panel of distinguished physicians comprehensively assess the rapidly evolving field of aneurysm treatment, focusing on aneurysms of the descending thoracic and abdominal aorta. The discussion of Aortic Aneurysms covers endovascular aortic repair as well as the recent significant improvements in stent graft design. This volume provides a concise and authoritative view of the current state of patient management, serving as a primer on clinical care and surgical procedures for aortic aneurysms. Comprehensive and up-to-date, Aortic Aneurysms: Pathogenesis and Treatment, offers Cardiologists, Vascular Surgeons, and Thoracic and Cardiac Surgeons a multidisciplinary approach to the management and treatment of patients with aortic disease.
