'At 53 years of age I had a weak right forearm. I was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and given three to five years to live. I am now sixty. I can no longer walk, play the piano, cuddle my wife, hug my kids, drink without a straw, or piddle without someone else opening my fly and holding a bottle over what can no longer be accurately described as my private parts. But I can still think, talk, love, be loved, go to watch my beloved cricket at the SCG, taste the warmth of red wine, write and ...hope. 'And I retain my passion for life. And for telling stories...'Paul Brock was a happily married man with three children and at the peak of an illustrious career when he was diagnosed with that most terrible of conditions, Motor Neurone Disease.In this well written, moving book, Paul Brock tells of his struggle to cope with the shocking hammer blow that the diagnosis of Motor Neurone Disease brought to his life. And how, years after his death was predicted and with most of his body immobilised, he still manages to live a life as rich and full as possible.

Cliff Potts was raised near the small town of Custer, Montana. At fifteen he contracted polio and nearly died. He lost the use of his arms and legs and spent many months in an Iron Lung. Because of this ordeal Cliff developed a profound spirituality, beginning with the realization that every breath he took was a gift from God. Using a tongue controlled electric "Golden Arm", to manipulate his own left arm, Cliff produces original artwork in pen & inks, watercolors and oils, as well as limited edition prints and cards. Many of Cliff's drawings and paintings reflect his rural Montana heritage and his spiritual reverence. Hope is a predominate thread in his life and in his art he frequently expresses it through the use of vibrant color. No matter what the medium or subject his artistic vision brings him back time and again. to the lessons he learned as a boy, awe for the majesty of creation, a belief in the power of God, and the knowledge that survival takes teamwork. Indeed, not only his artwork, but his entire life has been shaped around these lessons. He considers every day a blessing and strives to make it count!

Praise for Portfolio Life "Dave Corbett's book turns two simple ideas into a program for life-enrichment, that you can create a life expressly for yourself and that the so-called retirement years are the best time to do it. Drawing on a lifetime of work with people who were rethinking what they wanted and their direction, he shows how to do both those things. Be warned: If you read the book, you're going to be changed. But I think you'll like how you turn out." --Bill Bridges, author, Transitions and Job Shift "Dave's book reveals a powerful and profound formula for crafting a genuinely rich life. If you agree that retirement is passé, and you are a lifelong learner and have a desire to make your life count in a deeply fulfilling way, you will love this book." --Fred Harburg, former chief learning officer and president, Motorola University "Healthy, fit, financially secure, and happy for another 40 years? Is there really that kind of gold over 'them thar' hills? Yes, and Portfolio Life is the guide, leading boomers to a life path never before traveled by so many. Don't pass 50 without it." --Natalie Jacobson, news anchor, WCVB-TV Boston "This is the work of a wise, thoughtful author with decades of experience helping people be more successful in the next chapter of their lives. It will help you embrace change and explore the possibilities that come with an additional 20 to 30 productive years to be designed and lived on your own terms." --Anne Szostak, chairman, The Boys & Girls Clubs of America "This timely book should be read by anyone of any age who wants his or her life to have meaning and purpose beyond the accumulation of money and things." --Millard Fuller, founder, Habitat for Humanity and the Fuller Center for Housing

Donald Worster's A Passion for Nature is the most complete account of the great conservationist and founder of the Sierra Club ever written. It is the first to be based on Muir's full private correspondence and to meet modern scholarly standards, yet it is also full of rich detail and personal anecdote, uncovering the complex inner life behind the legend of the solitary mountain man. It traces Muir from his boyhood in Scotland and frontier Wisconsin to his adult life in California right after the Civil War up to his death on the eve of World War I. It explores his marriage and family life, his relationship with his abusive father, his many friendships with the humble and famous (including Theodore Roosevelt and Ralph Waldo Emerson), and his role in founding the modern American conservation movement. Inspired by Muir's passion for the wilderness, Americans created a long and stunning list of national parks and wilderness areas, Yosemite most prominent among them. Yet the book also describes a Muir who was a successful fruit-grower, a talented scientist and world-traveler, a doting father and husband, and a self-made man of wealth and political influence. The winner of numerous book awards, A Passion for Nature was also named a Best Book of 2008 by Washington Post Book World. It is the first comprehensive biography of Muir to appear in six decades.
