Download and read online Bowl of Cherries in PDF and EPUB The brilliant creation of ninety-year-old debut novelist Millard Kaufman, co-creator of Mr. Magoo and twice-nominated for Academy Awards for screenwriting, Bowl of Cherries rivals the liveliest comic epics for giddy wordplay and gleeful invention. Kicked out of Yale at the age of fourteen, Judd Breslau falls in with Phillips Chatterton, a bathrobe-wearing Egyptologist working out of a dilapidated home laboratory. Entranced by Chatterton's daughter, Valerie, Breslau abandons his studies and decides to move in with the eccentric scientist and assist with research. But the work is not what Judd had thought and, mesmerized by Valerie, Breslau follows her to a number of strange locales—a secret attic in her father's home, a Colorado equestrian ranch, and a porn studio beneath the Brooklyn Bridge. Judd ultimately makes his way to the forlorn Iraqi province of Assama, ending up in a jail cell from which he narrates the novel, awaiting his execution while war rages on around him.Kaufman's debut is a book of astounding breadth and sharp consequences, containing all the joy, madness, terror, and doubt of adolescence and everything after.

These events are not always what we would like; but if we face reality, we realize that they are what we are given. In A Cheerful Heart, Diana Holt shares what she has learned from a lifetime of accepting the events that she has been given. Many illnesses, some more devastating than others, affected her family. Alcoholism, dementia, cancer, haemolytic uremic syndrome, and depression caused her family much pain and destruction, while other diseases left emptiness, sadness, and loneliness. As challenging situations arose—situations she did not know how to face—she reached out for help and found it, in the form of counseling and support groups, through her church, and in numerous other places. Sharing how she reached out for help and found it, searching for solutions, taught her about utilizing the abilities God gave her. Now, she shares the story of her life in order to encourage others to search for the help they need and the solutions to their own challenging situations—help is there, if you only look. When your life is full of sorrow, And there’s no hope for tomorrow. When your soul is aching, And your heart is breaking If I can ease your pain, Then I will not have lived in vain.

Download and read online Stumbling on Happiness in PDF and EPUB Bringing to life scientific research in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, philosophy, and behavioral economics, this bestselling book reveals what scientists have discovered about the uniquely human ability to imagine the future, and about our capacity to predict how much we will like it when we get there. • Why are lovers quicker to forgive their partners for infidelity than for leaving dirty dishes in the sink? • Why will sighted people pay more to avoid going blind than blind people will pay to regain their sight? • Why do dining companions insist on ordering different meals instead of getting what they really want? • Why do pigeons seem to have such excellent aim; why can’t we remember one song while listening to another; and why does the line at the grocery store always slow down the moment we join it? In this brilliant, witty, and accessible book, renowned Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert describes the foibles of imagination and illusions of foresight that cause each of us to misconceive our tomorrows and misestimate our satisfactions. With penetrating insight and sparkling prose, Gilbert explains why we seem to know so little about the hearts and minds of the people we are about to become. From the Trade Paperback edition.
