The Continuum Concept / Jean Liedloff
The subtitle of this book is In Search of Happiness Lost. Truly one of the most amazing books you will ever read -- explaining the underlying anxiety of adults in Western cultures. Jean Liedloff spent time with Amazonian Indians and saw that mothers never put their babies down for the first six months of life -- what she calls the in-arms phase. This constant contact with a living, breathing person keeps the baby "in the middle of things" (action) and discharges his unspent energy -- another novel insight. The Western protocols of sleeping and feeding schedules, letting babies "get used to being alone," etc. is miserably upside-down and makes for alienation/disconnection that may never be recovered. A must read!
Why Lawyers Suck / Melody Kramer
Written by an experienced lawyer, this book is actually a guide to "hacking" the legal system, which means it's designed to help you navigate and manage the work product your lawyer offers you. Yes! A great way to understand how the legal system came to be as confusing and unproductive as it now is, PLUS loads of tips for the legal client (you or someone you care about). A very easy and entertaining read, to boot -- highly recommended!
Cracking the Code / Pete Hendrickson
If you've wondered about income tax, here's the book that will show you -- gently and firmly -- how and why we've all been led astray. These are the findings of Pete Hendrickson who carefully scrutinized the entire Internal Revenue Code for all definitions of its various key words and concepts. The research is thus done for you, but it remains up to you to understand the reality -- and use it. Applying this exceptional resource, many have received full refunds of all withholdings time and time again. The statutes are not faulty -- it's our interpretation of them that is. Highly recommended, but not an easy read!
Ground Zero CD
Soundtrack of the popular documentary "911 Mysteries." Original music (composed by S. Baker and E. Bien), expanded with extra tracks not included in the film for a flowing listening experience.
Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon / Dave McGowan
Not to be missed. Based on the author's incredibly popular Laurel Canyon web series (now gone), this incredible probing into the origins of rock 'n' roll and the huge number of stars we all couldn't get enough of will just blow you away. It will truly shatter your past. Dave McGowan (RIP) managed to collect a huge amount of information that no one else has done so far, and I guarantee you will be truly amazed. That's all I'll say. Be prepared to fall hard, and if you have any knowledge of how the world has been put together, this piece definitely belongs in your puzzle!
Unwind / Cary Farley
A beautiful, inspired 60-minute instrumental piece by Northern Californian guitarist Cary Farley. Perfect for driving, massage, walks, rumination or just plain background. This is an unusual composition, not overly placid or New Age -- try it! (Item may arrive in different packaging/case)
