In the span of four months in 2012, Tig Notaro was hospitalized for a debilitating intestinal disease called C. diff, her mother unexpectedly died, she went through a breakup, and then she was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer. Hit with this devastating barrage, Tig took her grief onstage. Days after receiving her cancer diagnosis, she broke new comedic ground, opening an unvarnished set with the words: 'Good evening. Hello. I have cancer. How are you? Hi, how are you? Is everybody having a good time? I have cancer.' The set instantly went viral, and was ultimately released as Tig's sophomore album, Live, which sold one hundred thousand units in just six weeks and was later nominated for a Grammy. Now, the wildly popular star takes stock of that no good, very bad year - a difficult yet astonishing period in which tragedy turned into absurdity and despair transformed into joy. An inspired combination of the deadpan silliness of her comedy and the open-hearted vulnerability that has emerged in the wake of that dire time, I'm Just a Person is a moving and often hilarious look at this very brave, very funny woman's journey into the darkness and her thrilling return from it.

In "Commoner Sense", author Patrick J. Fornari, a no-nonsense average American working person, examines the United States’ unique past, present, and possible future. Built on more than a decade of research condensed into an overview of the working person’s role in America, Fornari’s perspective lends credibility, importance, and a clear voice to the diminishing role of the American voter and worker in American politics. Commoner Sense addresses a variety of topics including slavery and racism, religious freedom, liberal utopian sensibility, American exceptionalism, the IRS, the economy, and Obamacare. It presents the ideas of our founding fathers, shows how those ideas are playing out in today’s America, looks toward the future, and encourages each American to regain control of the country’s destiny, which has been hijacked by an elite ruling class. Fornari’s “everyman” life experience represents the much-neglected commonsense view of the government and country by America’s working class. He details how “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” isn’t just for the history books anymore; it’s for the present and the future.
One of the key teachings in all of the Bible is that of Matthew Chapter 7 verse 14. The Son of God, Jesus Christ, spoke about a/the way to eternal life (heaven) as being one of great difficulty. In other words, Jesus was saying that if someone wants eternal life it won't be easy and there must be a searching and an uncovering in finding the way. In this book God uses the life and words of an ordinary man's changed life as a compass in/to helping you/people find that/the narrow path to eternal life.
Frisco Jarvis may be insane. He is a paranoid, germophobic, neurotic, annoyed, irritated, obsessive compulsive man filled with syndromes and disorders. As a child, he liked to mess up his hair and jump up and down making up words trying to sound like a caveman. He began to write short stories about crazy things that have happened in his life, which was a suggestion from his sister who has known for quite some time that he is crazy. The result was this book - a collection of true short stories, and rants and raves, that led to his emotional instability. Read it with caution.

Makena Hayes-Gargonnu Celebrity Event Producer Conscious Comedy Explosion! --------------------------------------------- The thought provoking poetry of this book will have you asking questions. Questions that are relevant in our walk with Christ. Such as, how much further would we if we stopped living for ourselves and started living to fulfill God's purpose in our life? It also has an empowering effect causing us to stand firm in our belief that our Heavenly Father is guarding, protecting, and seeing to our need. So what do we have to worry about?However, the ups and downs, frustration, and aggravations are needed to sculpt us from a diamond in the rough into a gleaming fully faceted gem that shines brightly.

Sit back and fasten your seat belt, as you open this book, you truly will declare that the Lord is good." Di Smith
The contents of this book are a compilation of short commentaries about politics and life in general. These commentaries are presented in chronological order, beginning with the latest (August 2010), and ending with the earliest (June 2008). The objective of the commentaries is to foster a new awareness for the reader by being exposed to new and different ways of looking at and understanding some of the things that affect us all everyday. At the very least, the views, opinions and ideas presented herein should be a refreshing departure from the fare offered by the mass media and their established "talking heads and columnists." It is the opinion of the author that the mass media commentary we all are subjected to on a daily basis is not necessarily relevant to the large majority of citizens because they are made by those who rarely share the same stress of living that most of us do in our everyday lives. So, it is the sincere aspiration of the author that a new awareness and perspective about politics and life in general will result upon reading these humble offerings.

The late Carl Rogers, founder of the humanistic psychology movement, revolutionized psychotherapy with his concept of "client-centered therapy." His influence has spanned decades, but that influence has become so much a part of mainstream psychology that the ingenious nature of his work has almost been forgotten. A new introduction by Peter Kramer sheds light on the significance of Dr. Rogers's work today. New discoveries in the field of psychopharmacology, especially that of the antidepressant Prozac, have spawned a quick-fix drug revolution that has obscured the psychotherapeutic relationship. As the pendulum slowly swings back toward an appreciation of the therapeutic encounter, Dr. Rogers's "client-centered therapy" becomes particularly timely and important.
