On Stand-by South of Heaven: Coping with Cancer My Struggle My Journey My Growth

by Steven Koss

This the true story of a son taking care of his dying father, a man he didn’t know very well, or even liked, who was diagnosed with brain cancer. This is a story of bankruptcy and breakups; of drug abuse and depression; of fights, both physical and verbal; and numerous doctors, lawyers, shrinks, police, and social workers. This is a story of confronting death and family healing. This is a story of inspiration and overcoming. This is my story as honest as it comes, from leaving my entire life behind in Florida to come home to giant mess in Cleveland that I thought I could clean up easily. How wrong I was. It’s part of life, taking care of your parents-I just go there first....

Zeromotor Man: The Victorian who invented the ice-rink and sold perpetual motion to the US Navy

by Steve Humphrey

On 26th February 1881 Professor John Gamgee filed a patent application. Gamgee called his invention the ‘Zeromotor’ and he had convinced the Chief Engineer of the US Navy that it would enable ships to operate without fuel, drawing energy from the sea instead. It was the first and last time the United States Patent Office granted a patent for a perpetual motion machine.
The career path of this maverick inventor would be impossible today. Born and raised in Florence, he was initially an outspoken and forward thinking veterinarian. He ran his own college and organised the first ever international veterinary conference. During the Cattle Plague of 1865 his controversial opinions on contagion and germ theory made him the target of nationwide abuse and ridicule. Although ultimately pro...

The diary of an average runner: Never, ever, give up

by Mark cameron

Oh no I hear you sigh, another book promoting from fat to thin, from unfit coach potato to elite athlete, from don't do this to you must do that ! I can assure you the purpose of this book is none of those. I hope this is actually a little deeper than that, looking into why we do things, what kind of people we are, questioning what is the purpose of the things that we do.

This book is a year in my life centered around running, why I took it up, what did I experience, and what did I achieve at the end of it. Some of it is personal, some a little spiritual, some hopefully motivational, perhaps in places a little shallow - but then that sums up how I am !

The end goal of this isn't to encourage others to run; it's to share my experiences and to encourage others to ...

The Man Charles Dickens: A Victorian Portrait

by Edward Wagenknecht

Charles Dickens is one of Britain’s best loved authors.But who was the man behind The Pickwick Papers and Oliver Twist.Edward Wagenknecht’s widely acclaimed “psychograph” of Charles Dickens answers those questions.The Dickens who emerges is a man of many parts — author, husband, father, editor, social reformer, businessman, and, last but not least, a man who was a man regardless of the criteria used to judge him. The completed portrait is that of genius, its varied interests, its abounding energy, and its achievements.“As The Man Charles Dickens leaves my typewriter for the second time,” says the author, “it says what I now wish to say about its subject as well as I am able to say it … Nor can I say good-bye to Dickens a second time without recording my present judgment t...

Autobiography of an English Baby Boomer

by Mike Newton

When I investigated my family tree and went back to about 1805, I realised that all you could learn about my ascendants was how they were related, where they were born and their occupation every 10 years. It would have been much more interesting if some of them had written about their life.
I was prompted to write my autobiography and have completed it until the age of 65 - hopefully there will be more to add. The aim of it is to pass down information about myself to my future descendants and is aimed at my grandchildren, great grandchildren etc, and I kept in my mind it being read in 100 years time. I asked my two sons if they would be interested in reading my autobiography and they answered in the affirmative. However after sending them my version up to the age of 63 two years ago,...

All these ordinary people who have done extraordinary things in their lifetimes. They are no different than the rest of us -- or are they?
