The classic New York Times bestseller: Real-life stories from prominent people talking about their experiences as alcoholics. As an alcoholic himself, PBS host Dennis Wholey set out to collect the powerful stories of well-known people who have struggled with this disease. Included in this volume are personal accounts by Jason Robards, Grace Slick, Sid Caesar, Pete Townshend, Don Newcombe, Bob Welch, Graham Chapman, Elmore Leonard, and many more. Whether they come from the worlds of entertainment, as actors, authors, comedians, or musicians, from politics or sports or other public lives, they share the private nightmare of drinking and the hard work of recovery. The Courage to Change also explores how alcoholism is truly a family disease. Rod Steiger talks about his alcoholic mother; the Reverend Jerry Falwell tells about growing up with an alcoholic father; Lois Robards, Sybil Carter, and Florence Caesar relate their own stories as wives of alcoholics. How do you know if you are an alcoholic? What are the symptoms? What should you do if someone in your family is an alcoholic? Where is the help? Is there hope? With inspiration and practical advice from members of Alcoholics Anonymous, this is a book that can save lives. “A brave and powerful work for anyone who cares about people, who desires to be more knowledgeable about human behavior.” —Leo Buscaglia, author of Living, Loving, and Learning “Should be required reading in every school system in America . . . If there’s an alcoholic in your life, one of the best investments you can make is this book.” —Detroit Free Press

Discover your ability to be brave in times of adversity with Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously—from one of the greatest spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. Courage is not the absence of fear, says Osho. It is, rather, the total presence of fear, with the courage to face it. This book provides a bird’s-eye view of the whole terrain—where fears originate, how to understand them, and how to call on your inner strength to confront them. In the process, Osho proposes that whenever we are faced with uncertainty and change in our lives, it is actually a cause for celebration. Instead of trying to hang on to the familiar and the known, we can learn to enjoy these situations as opportunities for adventure and for deepening our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. Having courage is more than just heroic acts in exceptional circumstances. It’s a necessity to lead authentic and fulfilling lives on a day-to-day basis. This is the courage to change when change is needed, the courage to stand up for our own truth, even against the opinions of others, and the courage to embrace the unknown in spite of our fears—in our relationships, in our careers, or in the ongoing journey of understanding who we are and why we are here. Courage also features meditation techniques specifically designed by Osho to help people cope with their fears. Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

Global health arguably represents the most pressing issues facing humanity. Trends in international migration and transnational commerce render state boundaries increasingly porous. Human activity in one part of the world can lead to health impacts elsewhere. Animals, viruses and bacteria as well as pandemics and environmental disasters do not recognize or respect political borders. It is now widely accepted that a global perspective on the understanding of threats to health and how to respond to them is required, but there are many practical problems in establishing such an approach. This book offers a foundational study of these urgent and challenging problems, combining critical analysis with practically focused policy contributions. The contributors span the fields of ethics, human rights, international relations, law, philosophy and global politics. They address normative questions relating to justice, equity and inequality and practical questions regarding multi-organizational cooperation, global governance and international relations. Moving from the theoretical to the practical, Global Health and International Community is an essential resource for scholars, students, activists and policy makers across the globe.

The Seven Acts of Courage: Bold Leadership for a Wholehearted Life This self-help book deals once again with the emptiness in people’s lives, even if their careers are flourishing. In this book, Robert E. Staub, II, a marital and family therapist, as well as author of The Heart of Leadership, discusses seven specific acts of courage that can lead to a happier life. They are the courage to dream and put forth that dream, to see current reality, to confront, to be confronted, to learn and grow, to be vulnerable and the courage to act. The courage is not to be found in one great heroic act, but in taking action every day based on what you believe is right, facing reality with conviction and learning when to persist in the fact of doubts, fears and when to take a new approach. • Two themes are wholehearted leadership, the critical balancing act of delivering results, while developing desired relationships and practicing the courage to become wholehearted leaders.
