Mr. Media: The Jonathan Katz Interview, Hörbuch...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Jonathan Katz is neither a doctor nor a cartoon. But he has been known to be one entertaining funnyman. His old show on Comedy Central, Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, was perhaps best known for two elements during its six-year run: its squiggly animation and the remarkable list of guests who sat on Dr. Katz's couch, including Ray Romano, Conan O'Brien, Jon Stewart and Louis C.K. Now Katz is back with a new animated show, Explosion Bus. Like Dr. Katz, Explosion Bus was created by Tom Snyder. The new show co-stars comedian Tom Leopold, whose writing credits including Seinfeld and Cheers. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Andelman.

The Benn Tapes 1, Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 113min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Late each night for over 25 years, the Labour MP and former Secretary of State Tony Benn sat alone and dictated onto tape his account of the daily events at the heart of government. The immediacy, passion, and mood is striking as he unburdens himself of the pressure and stress, trials and tribulations of government and opposition, with accounts veering from anecdotal to almost confessional. Events recalled in the first of these unique and remarkable recordings - heard by the public for the very first time on Radio 4 - include Harold Wilson's surprise resignation in 1976, the potentially catastrophic 1977 strike at Windscale, the year-long miners' strike in 1984, and the general election in 1992. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tony Benn. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/bbcw/001262/rt_bbcw_001262_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Rainbow Body
13,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Rainbow Body: The Life and Realization of a Tibetan Yogin, Togden Ugyen Tendzin, presents the remarkable life story of Togden Ugyen Tendzin (1888-1962), a Tibetan yogin who in death achieved the "rainbow body," the release of the physical body in the essence of the five elements and one of the highest spiritual attainments of Dzogchen, recognized as the supreme level of Tibetan Buddhism. His nephew, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, one of the greatest living masters of Dzogchen, composed the book from his own recollections of his uncle as well as direct quotes from talks with the great yogin himself and his disciple Sala Karma Samten. The book traces the yogin's childhood struggles, the circumstances that led him to his teacher, the eminent Adzom Drugpa, and his difficult path to self-realization. Finally, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu relates the story of Ugyen Tendzin's death during imprisonment by the Chinese, when witnesses discovered that though his sheepskin robe still sat upright, his body was gone-a testament to its having dissolved into the rainbow body.

Tesla: Inventor of the Modern , Hörbuch, Digita...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Nikola Tesla, a Serbian immigrant, invented the radio, the induction motor, the neon lamp, and the remote control. His breakthrough came in alternating current, the basis of the electric grid and long-distance electrical transmission. This pitted him against Thomas Edison's direct current empire, and bitter patent battles ensued. But Tesla's technology was superior, and eventually, he prevailed. Unfortunately, he had no business sense and could not capitalize on this success. His most advanced ideas were unrecognized for decades: 40 years in the case of the radio patent; longer still for his ideas on laser beam technology. Tesla's personal life was magnificently bizarre. Strikingly handsome and impeccably dressed, he was germophobic and never shook hands. He required nine napkins when he sat down to dinner. In later years, he ate only white food and conversed with the pigeons in Bryant Park. This clear, authoritative, and highly enjoyable biography takes account of all phases of this remarkable life. 1.

You Can Conquer Cancer: The Ground-Breaking Sel...
9,95 € *

People faced with cancer take life seriously--very seriously. They want answers; they need to know what works. I know the feeling. For more than twenty years now, I have sat in groups with thousands of others going through cancer. Between us we have tried many things. We have worked out what works. My job has been to collect these experiences. A revolutionary book when first published in 1984, You Can Conquer Cancer has sold more than 250,000 copies worldwide, and its earlier editions have been translated into numerous languages, including German, Dutch, Russian, Swedish, Thai, Korean, and Hebrew. A must-read classic on the topic of cancer, it has become one of the most widely read books on the subject, emphasising the importance of nutrition, the power of the mind, meditation, family, social support, and the spiritual dimension of life. This new edition contains important additional material as well as whole new sections of updated information. The book highlights the difference between positive thinking and wishful thinking and shares stories of remarkable survivors of cancer along with an extensive chapter on the theme of "good death"; it dedicates whole chapters to the subject of nutrition, explaining how it can affect--for the better--entire families. Remarkable for its clarity and conciseness, this new edition of You Can Conquer Cancer enlarges upon what is a truly integrated, holistic approach to cancer. 1. Language: English.
