G Street Lion
Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck is a self-described “passionary” whose approach to life has taken him from inner-city poverty to the highest levels of his profession. In G Street Lion, he shares his life story—how a typical, fatherless black kid from urban America gains admission into the nation’s best public university, almost by chance. In this memoir, he narrates how he struggles during his first semester, certain to flunk out, until he realizes that everything he needs to survive and thrive he learned growing up on G Street. Along the way, he discovers the secret for success, which takes him from the run-down dirt lots of the Pop Warner leagues in southeast San Diego to manicure...

G.
Questo libro è un evento. Una storia che aspettavamo ci venisse raccontata. Un tuffo in un mondo che suscita nostalgia anche in chi non l'ha vissuto.<br /> A dieci anni dalla scomparsa di Giorgio Gaber, il suo storico coautore e amico Sandro Luporini rompe l'ormai leggendario riserbo, e dal suo inviolabile rifugio viareggino apre le porte su uno dei più straordinari sodalizi artistici degli ultimi decenni. Svelando un tesoro di cui è il più autorevole custode. Racconta le discussioni, le idee, i dubbi, le storie, qualche volta le coincidenze che hanno dato origine ai loro capolavori: cosa intendevano veramente in certe canzoni troppo spesso fraintese, da dov...

G. K. Chesterton für eine neue Generation
Gilbert K. Chesterton hat nicht nur Sir Arthur Conan Doyle beim Schreiben von „Sherlock Holmes“ inspiriert. Auch der britische Literat C. S. Lewis wurde wesentlich durch sein Werk beeinflusst, besonders durch sein Werk „Der unsterbliche Mensch“. Er verfasste in atemberaubender Geschwindigkeit Artikel, Essays, Fantasy-Romane, Theaterstücke und Sachbücher. Oft trat er als Redner und – noch lieber – als Dialogpartner in öffentlichen Diskussionen auf.<br /><br />Chesterton verbindet Tiefgang, philosophische und literarische Expertise mit einzigartigem Witz, überraschenden, paradoxen Einsichten und einer Bescheidenheit bezüglich sich selbst. Vor allem hält er für unsere Zeit d...

G.K. Chesterton
Chesterton was a convert to Catholicism and a prolific novelist, critic, biographer, journalist. Above all he was a defender of the faith and common sense which he saw in everything natural and good. He debated the great questions that have always preoccupied human beings with other great minds such as George Bernard Shaw and H G Wells. But what transpires from the flamboyance and humour of his poetry and prose is a man in love with life and with God, constantly putting his intellect at the service of ordinary men and of an extraordinary God.

G.M.O. General Medical Officer
It was really difficult to tell where the first mistake was made because so many were made during this period of my life. However, I suppose you might say that the first real mistake was made in the fall of 1970 during the first part of my senior year in medical School at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida.<br /><br />I hope that you, the general public, will read this book along with some military Administrators, Congressmen, Senators, and maybe even a few career captains or admirals sitting up in the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery in Washington. If they did read this, they should take note and realize how screwed up the current situation has been and that...

Gå bare selv
GÅ BARE SELV er et opgør med en antiautoritær ideologi, ungdomsdyrkelse og kulturkritik, der har udviklet sig til en larmende parodi på sig selv. Men Jakob Levinsen viser også, i hvor høj grad der hele tiden har været og fortsat er mindst lige så mange konstruktive og inspirerende modeksempler og andre måder at stå frem på. Det meste har det meget bedre end påstået, og det kan også sagtens gælde os selv.<br /><br />Det handler frem for alt om myndighed. Ikke i form af en udefra tildelt status, men som den enkeltes mod til at være sig selv bekendt og stå frem derefter. Forknytte riddere fælder ingen drager.

Gå upp på ett berg på månen
<b>Bilderna från månen</b> som sändes från denna steniga döda värld som ligger mer än 250 000 miles bort väckte känslor antingen medvetet eller omedvetet hos människorna på jorden. Även astronauterna själva kände att de hade en publik trots detta enorma avstånd. <br />För att ge ett exempel på detta resonemang så räcker det med att tänka på alla bilder av jorden som publicerats i media för att påminna oss om den djupare känslan av en större verklighet.<br />Det är en dramatisk skillnad mellan att se landskapet från ett fönster och att gå ut i det själv. Genom att gå ut i landskapet och gå mellan kullar och dalar så blir man en del av topografin, en del av dess historia.<b...
