In the cloud-washed airspace between the cornfields of Illinois and blue infinity, a man puts his faith in the propeller of his biplane. For disillusioned writer and itinerant barnstormer Richard Bach, belief is as real as a full tank of gas and sparks firing in the cylinders...until he meets Donald Shimoda--former mechanic and self-described messiah who can make wrenches fly and Richard's imagination soar.... In Illusions, the unforgettable follow-up to his phenomenal bestseller Jonathan Livingston Seagull, Richard Bach takes to the air to discover the ageless truths that give our souls wings: that people don't need airplanes to soar...that even the darkest clouds have meaning once we lift ourselves above them... and that messiahs can be found in the unlikeliest places--like hay fields, one-traffic-light midwestern towns, and most of all, deep within ourselves.

WINGS FOR SOARING: Taking It To The Next Level - Beyond Jonathan Livingston Seagull An uplifting story inspired by the spirit of Jonathan Livingston Seagull and the songs of John Denver. Historical Note: This delightful yet thought-provoking novella was originally written as a sequel to Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach. However, the publisher and author would not sanction a sequel, and forbid the use of the character names. To avoid copyright infringement and litigation, the names of the characters and parts of the story line were changed in the present version. POPULAR EXCERPTS: “Life is a gift, Elliot. Take it, unwrap it, appreciate it, use it, and enjoy it." 'Analysis leads to paralysis'. If we are very busy analyzing life, asking all sorts of 'Why?' or 'What for?' questions, we tend to get paralyzed. We are impaired. Our ability to engage in life, to fully participate, is blocked.” "Here and now's the place to be, this is it, all you see!!!" “He wondered if we could love, if ecstasy would be possible at all, if we knew we would never die.” “An eagle who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, and is nothing.” “If I have the freedom to choose what I shall do, then I am accountable for whatever I choose to do, or choose not to do.” "Uncertainty exists in life, Elliot. There are no guarantees. Each of us needs to learn to co-exist with this uncertainty, to tolerate ambiguity, instead of frantically attempting to avoid or control these conditions." "This Is It - Here & Now," he thought, "Far Out!!!"

Chekhov is a unique force in modern drama. His works have long been cherished for their brilliant wit and unusual ability to provide striking insights into the human condition. In these stunning, individually published translations of three of Chekhov's most popular and beloved plays, Laurence Senelick presents a fresh perspective on the master playwright and his groundbreaking dramas. This volume illuminates the timeless trials of art and love and bring Chekhov's memorable characters to life. Each of these three plays showcases the hallmark features of a Chekhov classic: clashing desires, complex family dynamics, the individual's loss of balance and sense of identity in the shifting eruptions of society and a modernizing Russia, and the angst of artistic struggle and ambition. Supplementing each of the plays are an account of Chekhov's life, a note on the translation, introductions to each work, and variant lines - often removed due to government censorship - which illuminate the context in which they were written and shed light on Chekhov's work as a playwright. These editions are the perfect guides to enriching our understanding of this great dramatist or to staging a production.

In 1904, a relatively unknown Englishman named James Allen wrote a little book called As a Man Thinketh. The book has become one of the world’s greatest self-help books — “self-empowerment” is a better term — for it not only reveals to us that the keys to success are within our own minds, it shows us how to use these keys to unlock the greatest fulfillment we can imagine. In this revised edition, author and publisher Marc Allen updates this classic, changing language that has become dated or obsolete, and honing the clarity of the message. He makes As You Think gender inclusive, showing how these principles are truly universal and apply to everyone, regardless of sex, age, race, beliefs, social class, or education. As You Think is a simple yet powerful reminder that “all we achieve and all that we fail to achieve is the direct result of our own thoughts.” We are the masters of our destinies.
