  • In this "unexpected delight,"* filmmaker David Lynch describes his personal methods of capturing and working with ideas, and the immense creative benefits he has experienced from the practice of meditation.
    Now in a beautiful paperback edition, David Lynch's Catching the Big Fish provides a rare window into the internationally acclaimed filmmaker's methods as an artist, his personal working style, and the immense creative benefits he has experienced from the practice of meditation.
    Catching the Big Fish comes as a revelation to the legion of fans who have longed to better understand Lynch's personal vision. And it is equally compelling to those who wonder how they can nurture their own creativity.
    Catching Ideas Ideas are like fish.
    If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you've got to go deeper.
    Down deep, the fish are more powerful and more pure. They're huge and abstract. And they're very beautiful.
    I look for a certain kind of fish that is important to me, one that can translate to cinema. But there are all kinds of fish swimming down there. There are fish for business, fish for sports. There are fish for everything.
    Everything, anything that is a thing, comes up from the deepest level. Modern physics calls that level the Unified Field. The more your consciousness-your awareness-is expanded, the deeper you go toward this source, and the bigger the fish you can catch.

  • From the New York Times bestselling author, a 30-day plan to a leaner body In the follow-up book to her bestselling Gorgeously Green, Sophie Uliano reveals the secrets to getting slim while being good to the planet . It turns out that eating local, organic, foods doesn't have to be expensive, and a healthy meal can be made in 30 minutes or less, all while shedding pounds.
    In her relatable, girlfriend-to-girlfriend tone, Uliano pledges that anyone can go green and lean, no matter where they live or what resources they have. Uliano recognizes that dieting and going green are big lifestyle changes and makes it easy for readers to commit to both by allowing them to personalize their plans according to their needs. The book has three diet plans-light green, bright green and deep green- that depend on how much time, travel, and money readers want to commit to going green. The three plans promise the same amount of weight loss, but the darker green the plan is, the greater the commitment the reader makes to reducing waste, going organic and staying carbon neutral.
    Each diet plan emphasizes natural, seasonal, whole foods that are not only better for the planet, but better for the body. Uliano explains how over-processed, over-produced foods contain fewer nutrients, are harder to digest and are more likely to be stored as fat. With 4-week eating plans for each shade of green, she shows readers how to wean themselves off of processed, manufactured foods and onto fresh vegetables and meat. The book recommends products, brands and websites and has over 100 recipes-every tool readers need to get lean while going green.

  • The mind guides our footsteps as we progress along the pathway of life.
    Purity of mind leads inevitably to purity of life, to the precious love and understanding that should control our everyday acts and attitudes towards friends and foes.
    But where must one look for guidance? How does one achieve purity of mind that alone brings happiness and confidence?
    The author offers his clear answers in this book As A Man Thinketh. His words have helped millions for more than a century--and they continue to point the true way to a better life for a troubled humanity.
    "Out of a clean heart comes a clean life and a clean body," James Allen writes. "out of a defiled mind proceeds a defiled life and a corrupt body." Too many mortals strive to improve only their wordly position--and too few seek spiritual betterment. Such is the problem James Allen faced in his own time. The ideas he found in his inner-most heart after great searching guided him as they will guide you.

  • Today Lipton means tea. However, in his time Sir Thomas Lipton was known for much more than the Lipton tea empire. Raised in desperate poverty, he would build a global empire of markets, factories, plantations, and stockyards. But his epic pursuit of the America's Cup-'a yachting trophy and the ultimate in international sport-'made him a beloved figure on both sides of the Atlantic.
    More than a story of innovation and achievement, A Full Cup also explores Lipton's most intriguing creation: his public persona, formed by a burgeoning mass media and a shameless self-promotion that made him one of the most recognizable figures of his time. Michael D'Antonio brings to life the surprising careers of this intrepid sailor, gregarious showman, and ingenious self-made millionaire-'the world's very first celebrity CEO.
