For more than twenty-five years, Dr. Bertrand Martin has been teaching meditation for combating stress and achieving overall better quality of life. In his new book, he talks about his techniques and how to use them to achieve mental silence. Todays society suffers from stress, anxiety, depression, burnout, negativity, and much more, leading to unhappiness, diseases, consumption of medicaments and drugs, Dr Martin says. Regular practice of mental silence meditation can prevent and cure many ailments. It also treads the path of full realization of ones potential. Although stress is a normal part of life, too much of it can have debilitating consequences. Dr. Martin, a psychiatrist and Ayurvedic physician, has been teaching meditation to his patients since 1990. This has helped about 95 percent of his patients, who experience mental silence, a feeling he describes as a totally peacefully state of consciousness in which thinking process stops and a deep physical and mental relaxation is experienced. He shares his techniques for achieving mental silence in his eponymous book. It is specially written for people living busy, fast-paced lives who want to meditate efficiently and achieve fast results. The steps shared are practical, measurable, clearly explained, and easy to practice. Dr. Bertrand Piccard, a psychiatrist and explorer, recommends the method. If you have picked up this book, it probably means that the search for pioneering solutions to further improve your quality of life is a matter that excites your curiosity. Not all of us can be discoverers of the universe, but we can go a long way just by exploring our own selves. Our mind is the richest, most valuable, and most efficient resource that is permanently available to each of us. Dr. Martin is proposing a conscious and serene method to shape up our mental, spiritual, and physical capacities. The method is simple, fast, and effective. Let yourself go, and you may land way beyond your usual certainties.

The Revolutionists

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It's a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.

The Beastly Battles Of Old England

The Misguided Manoeuvres of the British at War
Author: Nigel Cawthorne
Publisher: Piatkus
ISBN: 0748120610

Page: 288

Throughout history the English have been a warlike lot. Often we fight among ourselves - there have been a good few civil wars - and when we were not slaughtering each other, we practiced on our neighbours, the Scots, the Irish, the French... When that got too easy, we set off around the world to find other people to fight. This was usually done with a hubris that invited some ludicrous pratfall. In The Beastly Battles of Old England, Nigel Cawthorne takes us on a darkly humorous journey through some of our ill-advised military actions. From the war over a severed ear to a general seeking out his rival's mistresses to even the score, it is a miscellany of insufferable arrogance, reckless gallantry, stunning stupidity, massive misjudgements and general beastliness.

SAY CHIC...C'est magnifique! Ever wonder why some French words have become so common in English as to be clichés? Or why your witty repartee wouldn't be quite so witty without them?

In their clever, often amusing style, the authors explain the origin of each word, its meaning, and how it came to be adopted into English. Uniting the sensibilities of an American author and a French author, these surprisingly entertaining stories combine world history, pop culture, etymology, and pithy observations about Americans and the French, with no small amount of panache. Featuring delightful illustrations, Say Chic will find its raison d'être on the bookshelf of anyone who has ever longed to be an American in Paris and hankers for a bit more of that irresistible je ne sais quoi in America.

Pursuing the family name as the finest silk producer in Lyon, the young Huguenot Rachelle Dushane-Macquinet is thrilled to accompany her famous couturier Grandmere to Paris, there to create a silk trousseau for the Royal Princess Marguerite Valois. The Court is magnificent; its regent, Catherine de Medici, deceptively charming … and the circumstances, darker than Rachelle could possibly imagine. At a time in history when the tortures of the Bastille and the fiery stake are an almost casual consequence in France, a scourge of recrimination is moving fast and furious against the Huguenots—and as the Queen Mother's political intrigues weave a web of deception around her, Rachelle finds herself in imminent danger. Hope rests in warning the handsome Marquis Fabien de Vendome of the wicked plot against his kin. But to do so, Rachelle must follow a perilous course.
