As one of the greatest, most celebrated athletes in history, Michael Jordan conquered professional basketball as no one before. Powered by a potent mix of charisma, near superhuman abilities and a ferocious drive to dominate the game, he achieved every award and accolade conceivable before retiring from the Chicago Bulls and taking an executive post with the Washington Wizards. But retirement didn't suit the man who was once king, and at the advanced age of thirty-eight Michael Jordan decided it was time to reclaim the court that was once his. WHEN NOTHING ELSE MATTERS is the definitive account of Jordan's equally spectacular and disastrous return to basketball. Having closely followed Jordan's final two seasons, Michael Leahy draws a fascinating portrait of an intensely complex man hampered by injuries and assaulted by younger players eager to usurp his throne. In this enthralling book Jordan emerges as an ambitious, at times deeply unattractive character with, unsurprisingly, a monstrous ego. WHEN NOTHING ELSE MATTERS is an absorbing portrait not only of one athlete's overriding ambition, but also of a society so in thrall to its sports stars that it is blind to all their faults.
By then, Doug Collins faced new questions about both the minutes he had played Jordan and about his denials in Wilmington of the tendinitis problem, which, in turn, raised issues about his candor and powers. Increasingly, he seemed to ...

Luv Singh is a hired gun; he carries out assassinations for an underworld don. The clients are anonymous, so are the targets. Out one night on a job, he awaits his target to climb out of the car that’s just arrived at the scene. As he looks through the scope of his rifle, his finger on the trigger, he sees his target accompanied by one of the most gorgeous women Luv has ever seen: Zoya. Zoya Merchant was Luv Singh’s girlfriend back in college, almost two decades earlier. He fails to take a shot. He’s betrayed Zoya once before; he cannot assassinate her husband. Knowing that the mafia doesn’t condone failure or dissidence, he still pledges to save Zoya’s husband from whoever’s calling the shots. Nothing Else Matters is a riveting tale set alternately in the criminal underworld and Zoya and Luv’s college lives, and about making choices that impact lives forever. It is crime fiction, but it is also a heart-breaking romance of a love that never dies. Come, fall in love with its flawed characters that cannot be forgiven, but will always be loved.
'I don't think I even want to be involved in this matter. Drugs, my God!' 'Why not? There's got to be some misunderstanding, Rai Uncle. Luv isn't that kind of a guy. I know him well. He doesn't take any drugs, trust me.

Meet Denise Wilson, a fairly conventional woman whose successful but uninspiring life is about to be turned upside down. Her partner of fifteen years has decided she’s not the right girl for him. He wants “options.” Simultaneously, the housing bubble bursts and with it goes her six-figure job as an interior designer for a large spec builder. At age fifty she’s faced with a blank sheet of life in front of her and not a single idea what to do with it. So she buys a ticket to Maui. “Nothing Matters” is an entertaining spiritual road trip taken with a good friend. It has all the requisite elements of a good story: quirky characters, serendipitous events and an unexpected ending, all told with a deft sense of humor. “Nothing Matters” is the literary equivalent of “Eat, Love, Pray” running smack-dab into “The Power of Now.” Part travelogue, part transformational journey, “Nothing Matters” puts the “light” back in enlightenment.
“Nothing matters.” There was space around those two words that highlighted their importance. Even though I was only half-awake, I knew I'd heard something significant. “Okay.” I said, wondering if he was going to elaborate. He didn't.

Is nothing everything? As strange as that question looks at first sight, it will definitely make sense after reading NOTHING MATTERS. Provocative and accessible, free of jargon, NOTHING MATTERS shows that there is more to nothing than meets the eye. History, the arts, philosophy, politics, religion, cosmology - all are touched by nothing. Who, for example, could have believed that nothing held back progress for 600 years, all because of mistaken translation, or that nothing is a way to tackle (and answer) the perennial question 'what is art?

In his Problemata, Aristotle provided medieval thinkers with the occasion to inquire into the natural causes of the sexual desires of men to act upon or be acted upon by other men, thus bringing human sexuality into the purview of natural philosophers, whose aim it was to explain the causes of objects and events in nature. With this philosophical justification, some late medieval intellectuals asked whether such dispositions might arise from anatomy or from the psychological processes of habit formation. As the fourteenth-century philosopher Walter Burley observed, "Nothing natural is shameful." The authors, scribes, and readers willing to "contemplate base things" never argued that they were not vile, but most did share the conviction that they could be explained. From the evidence that has survived in manuscripts of and related to the Problemata, two narratives emerge: a chronicle of the earnest attempts of medieval medical theorists and natural philosophers to understand the cause of homosexual desires and pleasures in terms of natural processes, and an ongoing debate as to whether the sciences were equipped or permitted to deal with such subjects at all. Mining hundreds of texts and deciphering commentaries, indices, abbreviations, and marginalia, Joan Cadden shows how European scholars deployed a standard set of philosophical tools and a variety of rhetorical strategies to produce scientific approaches to sodomy.
In contrast, although other causes may be implicated, the main culprit in the formation of “monsters” is the matter supplied by the woman—its qualities and its quantity. Even the birth of twins requires that the material contribution of ...
