The Do or Do Not Outlook
The Do or Do Not Outlook provides tips and pointers on developing the right outlook to undertake the difficult journey toward living your dreams. This book turns traditional wisdom on its head, examining the fears and traditions that discourage us from taking the risk of reaching for the stars while pointing out that another word for normal is average. Nick Maley, renowned worldwide as The Yoda Guy for his involvement as a key contributor in the creation of the character Yoda, shares the diverse life experiences that have given him a unique insight into living outside the box. The Do or Do Not Outlook uses Yoda's most famous words to inspire us all to do the same thing and celebrate those very qualities that make you unique. A short autobiographical section outlines how this outlook helped Maley overcome specific problems on his rise to success. Learn great tips such as... I. Basic Principles You Can't Live an Exceptional Life by Being Normal If you don't invest in your impossible dreams. You are the one who guarantees they won't come true. Build on what you have that other don't Each morning ask yourself What will I do today to get me once centimeter closer to where I'm trying to go. II. Adopting The Right Attitude You can't lead by following others You won't overcome your insecurities unless you face them Talent helps but persistence succeeds Think BIG... And then think even BIGGER III. Dealing With Life You can't control circumstances. You can only control your reaction to them. Negativity is infectious. Beware of unwarranted epidemics. If you have to work just to maintain your possessions, you don't really own that stuff. It owns you IV. Harsh Realities You can't live an exceptional life without making an exceptional effort. When the journey brings you down... V. Final Thoughts Be the river that flows to the sea Don't let the person you are destined to become, be smothered by the insecurities of who you are now. The people who fail are those who give up. And many more!

Who's Who in Roman Britain and Anglo-Saxon England
Part of an eight-volume series providing short biographies of men and women from Roman to Victorian times, Who's Who in Roman Britain and Anglo-Saxon England is more than a work of reference: it is a book to read and enjoy. Drawing on the discoveries of archaeologists and other researchers, the author of this volume has prepared over 140 short biographies which convey more than the bare facts of his subjects' lives: he places them in the contact of their time and evokes what was distinctive and interesting in their personality and achievement. The biographies are arranged in a broadly chronological rather than alphabetical sequence so that the reader may easily browse from one contemporary to the next. The index, with its many cross-references, reveals further linkages between contemporaries. Each volume is a portrait of an age, presenting history in a biographical form which complements the conventional approach.

Butler's Lives of the Saints: August
This August volume is part of a complete revision of Butler's Lives of the Saints . It comes in 12 volumes which correspond to the months of the year. How to live a Christian life of faith is a question every generation of Christians has sought to answer. Invariably, they have turned to the lives of the saints. They offer inspiration, hope and a clear challenge to all Christians. Saints, the popular heroes and heroines of every age, also have an importance beyond the inspiration they provide. Numerous conferences and publications testify to the increased attention being given to their lives as richly documented sources for the study of social and cultural, as well as religious history. This is the first revised edition since the major Calendar reform of 1969-70. It is based on the new Roman Martyrology being finalized by the Congregation for Divine Worship. There is a more worldwide emphasis, resulting in more expanded coverage of saints from all continents. There is also in-depth historical and contextual background on major saints, and the inclusion of many new saints and the blessed from recent decades. Some major entries include: Aidan of Lindisfarne, Ambrose, Anselm, Antony of Egypt, Bernadette of Boniface, Columba of Iona, Cuthbert, Don Bosco, Francis Xavier, Hildegard of Bingen, Teresa of Avila and Thomas Becket.

Biographical Ency Artists
A Comprehensive Reference to Great Artists of the World From Finnish architect Alvar Aalto to Spanish painter Francisco de Zurbaran, the four-volume Biographical Encyclopedia of Artists provides concise profiles of the world's most important artists. Covering sculptors, architects, painters, video artists, and many other visual artists, this comprehensive reference details the lives and major works of prominent artists throughout history and around the world. Each entry offers basic biographical data on the artist, descriptive characteristics of the artist's creative output, significance of the work, career milestones, and locations where the artist's work is displayed. Profiles of those artists whose outstanding work is recognized as pivotal in the history of art receive extended, in-depth treatment. Further readings follow selected entries, and a glossary at the end of the fourth volume defines art-related terms. Accessible, Up-to-date, and Inclusive Biographies Organized in an A-to-Z format, Biographical Encyclopedia of Artists includes not only well-known artists, but also lesser-known individuals who in many cases are excluded from or glossed over in general surveys of art history. The profiles of artists who are not part of the canon of Western art give readers the opportunity to discover unfamiliar artists and develop a broader understanding of art history. Artists of the late 20th and early 21st centuries are covered, as are women and artists from other groups who have traditionally been underrepresented in art books. The ideal companion to Facts On File Encyclopedia of Art (see right), this biographical encyclopedia makes information about artists easy to find and readily available. Beautifully Illustrated with Informative Captions Each highly illustrated volume contains photographs or reproductions on almost every page. The abundant illustrations, many in full color, are accompanied by informative captions. An up-to-date chronology of artists and a comprehensive set index add to this accessible reference. Further readings are included for topics where additional research may be particularly useful.

They Fought for Freedom: Mohandas Gandhi - The South Africa Years: Grade 10 - 12
Just over one hundred years ago, a young lawyer arrived in South Africa from India to do some legal work. He planned to complete his work and return to his family and friends in India. But Mohandas Gandhi soon saw and experienced for himself injustices in the country. He decided to stay and fight the government's cruel race laws. Later, he returned to India and played and important role in its struggle for independence. Today, Gandhi's passive resistance method of protest is known throughout the world - and is used by many who believe in non-violence as one of the ways of fighting for their rights. Gandhi's fight against racial and social injustice in South Africa as told by his granddaughter, Ela Gandhi, began a momentum that inspired many political organisations opposed to this country's racial laws. His legacy will continue to inspire people in their fight against all forms of oppression. They Fought for Freedom tells the life stories of southern African leaders who struggled for freedom and justice. In spite of the important roles they played in the history of southern Africa, most of these leaders have been largely ignored by the history books. The series tells their stories in an entertaining manner, in clear language and aims to restore them to their rightful place in history.
