The Essential Gandhi: An Anthology of His Writings on His Life, Work, and Ideas

https://www.amazon.com/Essential-Gandhi-Anthology-Writings-I...
Mohandas K. Gandhi, called Mahatma (“great soul”), was the father of modern India, but his influence has spread well beyond the subcontinent and is as important today as it was in the first part of the twentieth century and during this nation’s own civil rights movement. Taken from Gandhi’s writings throughout his life, The Essential Gandhi introduces us to his thoughts on politics, spirituality, poverty, suffering, love, non-violence, civil disobedience, and his own life. The pieces collected here, with explanatory head notes by Gandhi biographer Louis Fischer, offer the clearest, most thorough portrait of one of the greatest spiritual leaders the world has known.“Gandhi was inevitable. If humanity is to progress, Gandhi is inescapable. . . . We may ignore him at our own risk.” –Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.With a new Preface drawn from the writings of Eknath EaswaranIn the annals of spirituality certain books stand out both for their historical importance and for their continued relevance. The Vintage Spiritual Classics series offers the greatest of these works in authoritative new editions, with specially commissioned essays by noted contemporary commentators. Filled with eloquence and fresh insight, encouragement and solace, Vintage Spiritual Classics are incomparable resources for all readers who seek a more substantive understanding of mankind's relation to the divine.

The Rookie: An Odyssey through Chess (and Life)

https://www.amazon.com/Rookie-Odyssey-through-Chess-Life-ebo...
Chess was invented more than 1,500 years ago, and is played in every country in the world. Stephen Moss sets out to master its mysteries, and unlock the secret of its enduring appeal. What, he asks, is the essence of chess? And what will it reveal about his own character along the way?In a witty, accessible style that will delight newcomers and irritate purists, Moss imagines the world as a board and marches across it, offering a mordant report on the world of chess in 64 chapters – 64 of course being the number of squares on the chessboard. He alternates between “black” chapters – where he plays, largely uncomprehendingly, in tournaments – and “white” chapters, where he seeks advice from the current crop of grandmasters and delves into the lives of great players of the past. It is both a history of the game and a kind of “Zen and the Art of Chess”; a practical guide and a self-help book: Moss's quest to understand chess and become a better player is really an attempt to escape a lifetime of dilettantism. He wants to become an expert at one thing. What will be the consequences when he realises he is doomed to fail?Moss travels to Russia and the US – hotbeds of chess throughout the 20th century; meets people who knew Bobby Fischer when he was growing up and tries to unravel the enigma of that tortured genius who died in 2008 at the inevitable age of 64; meets Garry Kasparov and Magnus Carlsen, world champions past and present; and keeps bumping into Armenian superstar Levon Aronian in the gents at tournaments. He becomes champion of Surrey, wins tournaments in Chester and Bury St Edmunds, and holds his own at the famous event in the Dutch seaside resort of Wijk aan Zee (until a last-round meltdown), but too often he is beaten by precocious 10-year-olds and finds it hard to resist the urge to punch them. He looks for spiritual fulfilment in the game, but mostly finds mental torture.

1913: Der Sommer des Jahrhunderts (Fischer Taschenbibliothek) (German Edition)

https://www.amazon.com/1913-Sommer-Jahrhunderts-Fischer-Tasc...
Die Geschichte eines ungeheuren Jahres – der internationale Bestseller jetzt als hochwertiges Taschenbuch!"Ich konnte nicht mehr aufhören zu lesen – Illies' Geschichten sind einfach großartig."Ferdinand von SchirachFlorian Illies entfaltet virtuos ein historisches Panorama. 1913: Es ist das eine Jahr, in dem unsere Gegenwart begann. In Literatur, Kunst und Musik werden die Extreme ausgereizt, als gäbe es kein Morgen. Zwischen Paris und Moskau, zwischen London, Berlin und Venedig begegnen wir zahllosen Künstlern, deren Schaffen unsere Welt auf Dauer prägte. Man kokst, trinkt, ätzt, hasst, schreibt, malt, zieht sich gegenseitig an und stößt sich ab, liebt und verflucht sich. Es ist ein Jahr, in dem alles möglich scheint. Und doch wohnt dem gleißenden Anfang das Ahnen des Verfalles inne. Literatur, Kunst und Musik wussten schon 1913, dass die Menschheit ihre Unschuld verloren hatte. Florian Illies lässt dieses eine Jahr, einen Moment höchster Blüte und zugleich ein Hochamt des Unterganges, in einem grandiosen Panorama lebendig werden.
