From the author of Pitching Around Fidel and Far Afield comes an account of the accidental death of minor league first base coach Mike Coolbaugh, illustrating the many ways in which baseball still has a hold on America. Heart of the Game centers on the death of Mike Coolbaugh, a minor league coach who was killed on a sweltering Sunday evening in Little Rock in July 2007 when a foul ball rocketed off Tino Sanchez's bat. Coolbaugh died almost instantly, his body carted off the field of the Double-A Arkansas Travelers. He was thirty-five years old and the father of two; a third child was on the way. Mike's exemplary life--his devotion to the game and to his family--is the spine of the story. But it isn't the drama. The drama is in the telling of what can happen when a projectile hits the human body, of the narratives of the remarkable people who happened to be in the ballpark at that fatal moment, of the impact of Coolbaugh's death on the man who hit the ball, and of all the lives left behind. Price reveals anew that classic heart of Americana--small-town sports, small-town lives--and makes us understand that a game played away from the mindless churn of Internet blather and highlight shows can be more important than those played on the national stage.

Scobie, a policeman in a West African colony, is above reproach, but he's forced to borrow money to send his wife on holiday. While she's gone, he falls in love with a pathetic child widow, and inexorably, his conscience and his love of God lead him to disaster.
Why is it that love seems to come easily to some people and not to others?In her first book, What's Holding You Back? Eight Critical Choices for Women's Success, Dr. Linda Austin explored the "psychological glass ceiling," the emotional barriers that keep women from achieving career success. This book is about a different kind of inner glass ceiling: the one that holds you back from the heights of great love. Dr. Austin is convinced that there's nothing fundamentally wrong with those who have difficulty finding and keeping love; BUT there may be specific behaviors that you engage in -- and specific behaviors that you do not engage in -- that have a profound impact on whether you find and keep love. The good news? Those behaviors can be learned, practiced, and eventually incorporated into your personality. Dr. Austin wants you to know that small adjustments in your outlook and actions can have enormous impact on your ability to get the love you want. And in this perceptive, highly original book, she identifies the five core behaviors that determine your ability to have successful, loving relationships, as well as the patterns of behavior that can subtly sabotage those efforts. The Core Behaviors1. Engage with the World around You2. Evaluate the Choices You Make for Love3. Expand Your Safety Zone4. Establish Emotional Independence5. Evolve Consciously, Willfully, HealthilyHeart of the Matter shows how these five essential practices can deepen and transform your ability to give and receive love and loyalty. It explains how to make those small and specific changes that will have huge ripple effects on what happens to you in life -- and most important of all, it demonstrates how to identify and use your strengths so that you can move toward the life and love you want so much. Heart of the Matter reflects Dr. Linda Austin's twenty-five years as a psychiatrist, assisting all sorts of people in their efforts to live more fully in the real world of loving human relationships. Pragmatic and sensible, this book is based on the conviction that each of us has the capacity to improve our ability to find and inspire love through specific behaviors. So whether you're currently in a relationship, or it's been so long since you've dated that you think "seeing someone" refers to a psychiatrist, Heart of the Matter can help you move toward that healthy, loving relationship you want -- and so richly deserve.

In The Seat of the Soul prize-winning author Gary Zukav explained how the expansion of human perception beyond the five senses leads to a new understanding of "authentic power. " In Soul Stories, he showed how such concepts as harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life express themselves in other people's lives. Now, in The Heart of the Soul, prize-winning author Gary Zukav joins with his spiritual partner Linda Francis to show us the importance of emotional awareness in applying these concepts to our daily lives. The Heart of the Soul shows us how to free ourselves from our compulsions, fixations, obsessions, and addictions -- such as anger, workaholism, obsessive eating, alcohol and drug abuse, and sexual addiction -- that prevent us from living a fulfilling and meaningful life. It also provides the reader with the necessary tools to replace the desire to avoid painful emotions with the desire to explore every aspect of consciousness, and to cultivate the parts of ourselves that contribute the most to Life. Emotional awareness -- becoming aware of everything we are feeling at every moment -- is one of the most challenging tasks we can undertake. As Zukav relates in the audiobook, "The longest journey that you will make in your life is from your head to your heart. " For all of us, that is the unending journey toward spiritual growth -- toward wholeness, wisdom, and compassion -- and the healing that will allow us to achieve our fullest potential.
Gary Zukav is the author of The Dancing Wu Li Masters: An Overview of the New Physics, The Seat of the Soul, Thoughts from the Seat of the Soul, Soul Stories, and The Heart of the Soul.
