You may never have heard of somatics before, or simple have an interest in what the subject is all about. If this is the case then this is the book for you! Somatics is a relatively young field of research, dating from the latter part of the twentieth century. Although there are traces of the techniques and practices as far back as ancient Greece, it is only within the last thirty years that it has started to become recognised as a mainstream alternative. In essence somatic exercises are designed to retrain your mind. It is believed that the mind can be reprogrammed to move away from responses formed by habit and return to a state where you can control your own muscles and prevent them from becoming contracted for an extended period of time. This theory leads to the belief and confirmation that performing these exercises regularly will help you to relieve persistent pain, whether joint, muscle or even tendon pain. All of these pains are caused by the pressure being placed onto the injured part from a muscle that has remained contracted. Simple exercises can re-teach the brain to relax and contract the muscle at will. This can enable you to live a pain free life and even develop a better flexibility; mobility and posture. The book looks at the history of this new therapy method and the main ways this can be applied to pain relief. Inside you will find example exercises as well as a guide on how to get started and the main advantages and risks of adopting this theory. You may not have heard or understood the power of somatics before you read this book, but you are certain to want to try it for yourself by the time you finish it!

In the revolutionary Somatics, Thomas Hanna demonstrates that so many problems we accept as inevitable over time-chronic stiffness, bad back, chronic pain, fatigue, and even high blood pressure -need never occur if we maintain conscious control of nerve and muscle, a state which Hanna calls sensory-motor awareness. This gentle, lifelong program can help almost anyone maintain the pleasures of a supple, healthy body indefinitely, with only a five-minute routine once a day.

A clothes designer tries to coordinate her out-of-control life, in a novel from the New York Times–bestselling author that’s “juicy good fun” (Newsday). All of Karen Kahn’s dreams seem to be coming true. She’s been honored with the fashion industry’s most coveted award, her marriage is thriving, and some very impressive money is being dangled in front of her in a proposed buyout. The only thing missing is what she craves most—a baby. When she receives the heartbreaking news that she’ll never be able to have a child, it feels like the doctor’s verdict has pulled a loose thread—and suddenly everything seems to be unraveling. Now she has to take a hard look at her life and figure out what really suits her and what doesn’t . . . “This new novel by the author of The First Wives Club works at every level. An engaging, behind-the-scenes look at the fashion industry, it lays bare the frenetic pace, cutthroat competition and chronic backbiting of the world of couture. Also an engrossing family saga, it shows 40-year-old Karen, who is infertile, desperately trying to adopt a baby and, as an adopted child herself, searching for her birth mother. The narrative also offers a hilariously dark portrait of Karen’s immediate—and totally dysfunctional—family. A glittering New York social backdrop, plenty of namedropping, romance, some outstandingly creative characters . . . A book that fairly hums with excitement.” —Publishers Weekly

Eons ago, a great king used a magical device—the Seven-Petaled Shield—to defeat the forces of primal chaos, but now few remember that secret knowledge. When an ambitious emperor conquers the city that safeguards the Shield, the newly-widowed young Queen, guardian of the heart-stone of the Shield, flees for her life, along with her adolescent son. As one land after another falls to the empire, they become separated and her son fears the emperor has executed his mother. Consumed with grief and vengeance, he transforms himself into the agent of chaos, a ravening destroyer who threatens all the living world. The only ones standing in the way of annihilation are the mother he thinks is dead, a dispossessed enemy prince, a demented prophet, and the nomadic horsewoman whose love alone can heal the heart of the heir to the magical Shield.

Maul understands why many men find church a little...boring. When the church opts for a comfortable status quo instead of a meaningful engagement with Christ, it often leaves men cold. Maul reminds readers that Jesus came to bring an abundant life full of passion and purpose. Maul looks at 10 key words that describe the abundant life-among them excellence, commitment, authenticity, and community-in his collection of meditations that speak clearly to men's concerns and experiences. In an inviting, nonjudgemental manner, he presents practical concepts that can help men set priorities, sharpen their focus, and experience the zest of a life filled with meaning and value. Each meditation is guided by scripture and includes reflection questions and prayer. An ideal resource for a men's group study or for a time of personal reflection and discernment.

'This is a highly recommendable book. It elegantly introduces generative grammar as an empirical science. Written in a clear and friendly tone, it is extremely readable and makes complicated linguistic theory accessible to students' - Ken Ramshøj Christensen, Aarhus University, Denmark This clear and practical introduction to Syntactic Theory introduces students to theory building, hypothesis testing and evaluation through the framework of Chomsky's Government-Binding Theory. Initial chapters guide the student through essential topics such as X'-Theory, Transformations and elementary Binding Theory, progressing to cover more advanced issues such as Reconstruction, the light verb vP and control as movement. Presenting the core linguistic theory and problem solving skills that are essential to the subject, this updated and revised second edition features: • New material on the Minimalist Program and Government-Binding Theory • Expanded chapters on Phrase Structure and Functional Categories • A wealth of new tree diagrams as well as revised end-of-chapter exercises The liberal use of in-text exercises engage the reader at every stage of theory-development, while an 'Open Issue' at the end of each chapter encourages active participation and further exploration of the chapter's topic. With an engaging, informal style, Syntactic Theory makes the most difficult topics accessible to a wide range of students.
