In Quest of Nirvana is a vivid portrayal of the struggle for survival in the author's newly adopted country, the USA, after having been forced to flee from his native Hungary at the end of World War II. He encounters a political haven, a free Democracy, a society where few restrictions exist, but help is available only to those who help themselves. His total loss of a lifestyle that had been comparable to "Utopia" is the reason for a difficult re-start at the lowest economic levels; a fight against all odds, facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Impoverished and degraded from the highest levels of the social elite, the author nevertheless builds upon a basis of moral strength, courage, perseverance and a lasting incentive to achieve consistently improving conditions. His goals are set high; the means by which to reach them are extremely varied, and demand an unrelenting personal drive to overcome a constant series of serious challenges. A life-story that can only be described as fascinating. It consists of a succession of events, arrestingly told, with emphasis on the many quirks of fate rather than on the individual. A vivid presentation of a human life-span made even more realistic by numerous visual examples of important moments of the past fifty years. This autobiography tells a true story, all the more compelling, because eventhough every detail is real, it unfolds in the style of a novel. The reader can't help but be carried along with the ups and downs of a fate rich in unusual experiences and humorous anecdotes. To share in this review of a half-century is rewarding to those who value a summary of significant technological developments as well as taking part in a very special saga of personal evolvement. The author's childhood in Hungary and years of hardship as a refugee in Austria had been described in the predecessor of this work entitled: VISIONS OF UTOPIA. (Laszlo Szechenyi, 1991.

As the assistant editor of Melody Maker, Everett True was the first journalist to cover the Seattle music scene in early 1989 and interview Nirvana. He is responsible for bringing Hole, Pavement, Soundgarden, and a host of other bands to international attention. He introduced Kurt Cobain to Courtney Love, performed on stage with Nirvana on numerous occasions, and famously pushed Kurt onto the stage of the Reading Festival in 1992 in a wheelchair. Nirvana: The Biography is an honest, moving, incisive, and heartfelt re-evaluation of a band that has been misrepresented time and time again since its tragic demise in April 1994 following Kurt Cobain's suicide. True captures what the band was really like. He also discusses the music scene of the time-the fellow bands, the scenes, the seminars, the countless live dates, the friends and allies and drug dealers. Drawn from hundreds of original interviews, Nirvana: The Biography is the final word on Nirvana, Cobain, and Seattle grunge.

The book is a memoir of how a skeptical, fast-talking New Yorker became Thich Nhat Hanh's editor, turned forty, realized she was aging, and slowly and reluctantly started to absorb mindfulness practice and grow up. Scenes with Thich Nhat Hanh and the author’s two vividly exuberant older parents, illustrate how the author adapts mindfulness techniques for the busyness of her life, without losing her edge. With honest and vivid stories about dealing with difficult relationships with family members, death, illness, vanity, exhaustion, and creating a safety net of joy, the author explores and offers guidance for three key mindfulness practices: Knowing When You're Available and When You're Not; Full-Attachment Living; and Interbeing (Other People are Not a Hobby). This book is designed for adults who are new to mindfulness practice, Buddhism, curious skeptics, people familiar with the practice who want a personal story, and those interested in memoir.

The seventies are over. All across America, the overgrown kids of the middle class are getting their acts together--and getting older. The once-tight Chicano community of Chamisaville is long gone, and the Anglo power brokers control almost everything. Joe Miniver--faithful husband, loving father, and all-around good guy—is about to sink roots. To buy the land he wants, he dreams up a coke scam that will net him the necessary bread. Joe is also about to embark on a series of erotic adventures with three headstrong women, bringing him face-to-face with the terrors (and absurdity) of the modern man-woman scene. This final volume in the New Mexico trilogy, like its predecessors, is a lusty, visionary novel that blends comedy and tragedy, reality and fantasy, tenderness and bite, to illuminate some very troubling truths about America--truths no less pointed and accurate today than they were twenty years ago. John Nichols is the author of nine novels and six works of nonfiction. He lives in Northern New Mexico.

Economics is changing. In the last few years it has generated a number of new approaches. One of the most promising - complexity economics - was pioneered in the 1980s and 1990s by a small team at the Santa Fe Institute. Economist and complexity theorist W. Brian Arthur led that team, and in this book he collects many of his articles on this new approach. The traditional framework sees behavior in the economy as in an equilibrium steady state. People in the economy face well-defined problems and use perfect deductive reasoning to base their actions on. The complexity framework, by contrast, sees the economy as always in process, always changing. People try to make sense of the situations they face using whatever reasoning they have at hand, and together create outcomes they must individually react to anew. The resulting economy is not a well-ordered machine, but a complex evolving system that is imperfect, perpetually constructing itself anew, and brimming with vitality. The new vision complements and widens the standard one, and it helps answer many questions: Why does the stock market show moods and a psychology? Why do high-tech markets tend to lock in to the dominance of one or two very large players? How do economies form, and how do they continually alter in structure over time? The papers collected here were among the first to use evolutionary computation, agent-based modeling, and cognitive psychology. They cover topics as disparate as how markets form out of beliefs; how technology evolves over the long span of time; why systems and bureaucracies get more complicated as they evolve; and how financial crises can be foreseen and prevented in the future.

Though Nevermind was Nirvana's most commercially successful album, and the record that broke them - and the grunge phenomenon - internationally, In Utero has increasingly become regarded as the band's best album, both by the critics and the band members themselves. Instead of sticking to the "grunge pop" formula that made Nevermind so palatable to the mainstream, Nirvana chose instead to challenge their audience, producing an album that the band's creative force, Kurt Cobain, said truly matched his vision of what he had always wanted his band to sound like. Here, the full story behind the creation of In Utero is told for the first time.

Meditations to help you stop seeking inner peace—and start experiencing it instead. Nirvana is not to be found in the fulfillment of endless desires, the analysis of profound thoughts, or even hours, days, or years of meditative contemplation. In fact, it is the very act of seeking to obtain happiness, peace, and enlightenment that keeps them out of reach. Nirvana in a Nutshell offers 157 Zen meditations to help you discover what you might be doing (or not doing) in your life to sabotage your goal of reaching inner peace, your own personal paradise. But, as Scott Shaw explains, a desire for Nirvana is like any other desire—a cause of suffering. Let go of the quest and become that which you truly seek and you will find your own Nirvana.

Working speaking for itself title of the present book was “My Way to opening chakras (to reaching Nirvana or to awakening Kundalini), which unlike all other ways does not include dangerous and difficult respiratory exercises (Pranayama) and comprises a lot of very effective secrets of spiritual development, while, the known secrets of spiritual development remain invariable and ineffective thousands of years”. The present book could be entitled and characterized in following way too: “The easiest, safest and combined Way to open chakras (to reach Nirvana or to awaken Kundalini), which author learned about existence of chakras only after he opened them”. An author of the present book elaborated logically and intuitively absolutely unique the only possible recommendations to reach spiritual realization (opening chakras) by the best in the author’s sincere opinion Way. The author opened 6 from 7 existing chakras as a result of two-year special pleasant very effective very much facilitated combined occupations. Please, compare: The most specialized discipline for the fastest opening chakras – Sahaja yoga needs the same two years but of unpleasant occupations to open at least one chakra. The author achieved fantastic results in intellectual games and he felt himself as the happiest person. As though the effect of eternal superconductivity of energy in his body was observed. All his organs worked like a clock. There were objective and very pleasant feelings of that all his organs were washed by energy from chakras and that he will live 1000 years (it will be especially important for you if you are not so young). It gives all grounds to believe that rare and optimum from the point of view of internal pleasure and health and from the point of view of external productivity (see below about increasing intellectual level) opening majority of chakras was observed at the author. The author even considers his level of development as further spiritual development after known at present levels of spiritual development. This level was reached by the author in two weeks after his Ajna chakra opened. It happened so fast because he did not stop following to entire without exceptions recommendations described in the present book after his Ajna chakra opened. All these circumstances represent mentioned in the title of the present book meaning indicators distinguishing the described in the given book Way to opening chakras from known ways. However, author’s chakras were opened during one month only since he made two mistakes led to two closings of chakras. The author opened chakras after the first mistake again but, unfortunately, he could not open chakras after the second mistake. Both mistakes and other cautions are described in the present book not to let you make mistakes. The present document has such impact characteristic as perfect, most probably, the best guide for professional players and certainly all other ones. The author’s experience and his former wife’s one say that mediocre player who opened chakras according to just this document begins to play such games as chess, (lawn) tennis and Preference (card game) on professional and very, very successful level. Most probably, the majority of players will reach the same success playing other games. This circumstance represents one of mentioned in the title of the present book meaning indicators distinguishing the described in the given book Way to open chakras from known ways. Thus, very substantial increase of author’s intellectual level, in that period when his 6 chakras were opened, was expressed in his great successes in games chess, (lawn) tennis and Preference (card game). Author’s former wife also opened her Ajna chakra and, just after it, she won a match with a professional (!!!) (lawn) tennis player (a woman). Their match passed in 1990 within the limits of competition, in which the Physical Culture Institute, which author’s former wife studied in, participated.
