Summary : Amid the chaos of civilians fleeing West in a provincial German railway station in 1945 Helene has brought her seven-year-old son. Having survived with him through the horrors and deprivations of the war years, she abandons him on the station platform and never returns. Many years earlier, Helene and her sister Martha's childhood in rural Germany is abruptly ended by the outbreak of the First World War. Her father, sent to the eastern front, comes home only to die. Their Jewish mother withdraws from the hostility of her surroundings into a state of mental confusion. Helene calls the condition blindness of the heart, and fears the growing coldness of her mother, who hardly seems to notice her daughters any more. In the early 1920s, after their father's death, she and Martha move to Berlin. Helene falls in love with Carl, but when he dies just before their engagement, life becomes meaningless for her and she takes refuge in her work as a nurse. At a party she meets Wilhelm, an ambitious civil engineer who wants to build motorways for the Reich and to make Helene his wife. Their marriage, which soon proves disastrous, takes Helene to Stettin, where her son is born. She finds the love and closeness demanded by the little boy more than she can provide, and soon she cannot shake off the idea of simply disappearing. Finally she comes to a shocking decision. The Blind Side of the Heart tells of two World Wars, of hope, loneliness and love, and of a life lived in terrible times. It is a great family novel, a powerful portrayal of an era, and the story of a fascinating woman.

Summary : Starred Review. As he did so memorably for baseball in Moneyball, Lewis takes a statistical X-ray of the hidden substructure of football, outlining the invisible doings of unsung players that determine the outcome more than the showy exploits of point scorers. In his sketch of the gridiron arms race, first came the modern, meticulously choreographed passing offense, then the ferocious defensive pass rusher whose bone-crunching quarterback sacks demolished the best-laid passing game, and finally the rise of the left tackle?the offensive lineman tasked with protecting the quarterback from the pass rusher?whose presence is felt only through the game-deciding absence of said sacks. A rare creature combining 300 pounds of bulk with "the body control of a ballerina," the anonymous left tackle, Lewis notes, is now often a team's highest-paid player. Lewis fleshes this out with the colorful saga of left tackle prodigy Michael Oher. An intermittently homeless Memphis ghetto kid taken in by a rich white family and a Christian high school, Oher's preternatural size and agility soon has every college coach in the country courting him obsequiously. Combining a tour de force of sports analysis with a piquant ethnography of the South's pigskin mania, Lewis probes the fascinating question of whether football is a matter of brute force or subtle intellect.

Summary : These lectures on logic, more specifically proof theory, are basically intended for postgraduate students and researchers in logic. The question at stake is the nature of mathematical knowledge and the difference between a question and an answer, i.e., the implicit and the explicit. The problem is delicate mathematically and philosophically as well: the relation between a question and its answer is a sort of equality where one side is ``more equal than the other'': one thus discovers essentialist blind spots. Starting with Godel's paradox (1931)--so to speak, the incompleteness of answers with respect to questions--the book proceeds with paradigms inherited from Gentzen's cut-elimination (1935). Various settings are studied: sequent calculus, natural deduction, lambda calculi, category-theoretic composition, up to geometry of interaction (GoI), all devoted to explicitation, which eventually amounts to inverting an operator in a von Neumann algebra. Mathematical language is usually described as referring to a preexisting reality. Logical operations can be given an alternative procedural meaning: typically, the operators involved in GoI are invertible, not because they are constructed according to the book, but because logical rules are those ensuring invertibility. Similarly, the durability of truth should not be taken for granted: one should distinguish between imperfect (perennial) and perfect modes. The procedural explanation of the infinite thus identifies it with the unfinished, i.e., the perennial. But is perenniality perennial? This questioning yields a possible logical explanation for algorithmic complexity. This highly original course on logic by one of the world's leading proof theorists challenges mathematicians, computer scientists, physicists, and philosophers to rethink their views and concepts on the nature of mathematical knowledge in an exceptionally profound way.

Summary : From the author of the critically acclaimed novel A Brother's Blood, comes a haunting story about an Irish housekeeper who must discover the truth when her friend, the parish priest, is accused of horrible crimes. Maggie Quinn has had her share of misfortune: Having grown up poor and fatherless in Galway, she was forced to quit school early and find work to support her ailing mother and her own child. But when a tragedy of her own making strikes, it is too much for her to bear. Plagued by feelings of guilt and sorrow and by losing her faith in God, she runs from her past; first by fleeing Ireland for America and later by drowning her sorrows with the bottle. Maggie hits rock bottom when she makes an unsuccessful suicide attempt.While recuperating in a hospital bed, she meets the remarkable Father Jack Devlin. With his compassion and love, Maggie once more finds her faith and a reason to live. For the past eighteen years, Maggie has devoted herself to the man who saved her life. But now Father Jack, the beloved if controversial priest in the small town of Hebron Falls, Massachusetts, is accused of having done terrible things to altar boys many years before. At first Maggie is convinced that the accusations are only lies brought out by Father Jack's enemies. Yet as she sifts through the memories of her life with Father Jack, doubts begin to emerge: Could she have been blind to a darker side of her friend all these years? And when new information surfaces regarding the unsolved murder of a young altar boy with possible links to Father Jack, her faith is once again put to the test. Maggie must search her memory and her heart to help her decide what to believe. The Blind Side of the Heart poignantly captures one woman's struggle to remain loyal to a friend while at the same time she is forced to examine her conscience to arrive at the truth.

Summary : The lights, the cameras, the cheers of the crowd-adrenaline rushes through my veins as they announce my name and I run out in front of 85,000 roaring fans. It's more addicting than any narcotic I've ever used. What a price to pay to play a damn game 16 times a year. The eleven short stories in Tales from the Blind Side are based on the experiences of former NFL Offensive Lineman Chris Dieterich, who played for the Detroit Lions from 1980 to 1986. Diagnosed with depression from the many concussions he received on the playing field, Dieterich used the writing process as therapy-a release from the dark and painful memories of his decision to give up both his physical and mental health to be in the "limelight" for seven years. Writing served as an outlet for Dieterich's physical and mental torture, the daily stress and strain of performing at a world-class level. From the grueling misery of summer training camp, to the injuries sustained on the field, and to never-ending post-career bouts of mental confusion, delusions, and addiction to painkillers and alcohol, Dieterich has expertly spun fantasy and hard-core reality into eleven short stories that explore the depths of living on the mental edge of madness. Readers will experience the agony and the ecstasy of the NFL as Dieterich offers a glimpse into the world of professional sports...and its often devastating aftereffects.

Summary : Do you ever feel like you're experiencing your life at only a fraction of its true clarity and depth? Are your days dominated by a single emotion such as fear, sadness, anger, or disappointment? At work or in your personal life, do you find yourself facing similar relationship patterns or conflicts again and again? From our earliest years, we all acquire blind spots in the way we perceive, feel, and think. Driven by our biology, life experiences, cultural messages, and physical environment, they profoundly affect us throughout our lives. This informative and practical guide invites us to understand: how we get them, how to bring them to light, and how to work with that newfound awareness to improve our lives. Here, author Kelly Boys presents emerging research from many fields of psychology and neuroscience, personal stories, and a wealth of hands-on exercises and practices to help us identify, welcome, and transform our own hidden domains. Join her to explore: What we miss and how we miss it • Attentional blink—gaps in our sensory awareness and our astonishing potential to perceive more in each moment • Decoding your unconscious stories—how they filter the truth and influence you • Hacking your intuition—why our gut instincts are not always accurate, and ways to get it right more often • The defended self—uncovering the core beliefs that shape your emotional landscape • Using moments of crisis to reveal especially elusive blind spots • Falling in love, "crushing," cheating, and wholehearted loving—shining a light into the wilderness of intimate relationships • Three biases that sabotage our judgment and how to counter them • Self-compassion, welcoming, and vulnerability—keys to clearer self-perception • Flow states—becoming fully immersed in what you do without the filters that diminish your natural way of perceiving and being • Seeing yourself as others see you—safely engaging with someone you trust to gain greater self-awareness • Illuminating the biggest blind spot of all—the illusion of an isolated and separate self, and how to free ourselves from the traps it creates • Chapter-by-chapter practices—somatic, contemplative, and mindfulness-based—for self-discovery and change Once we recognize our blind spots, we can't unsee them. We release ourselves from unnecessary suffering and begin to experience each moment more richly. With The Blind Spot Effect, you're invited to illuminate what is right in front of you and within you—for greater wonder, joy, and fulfillment.

Summary : The story opens in 1913. Eric Ramsbottom is the thirty-nine year old centre-forward for Nelson Corinthians. In his very last season for the club, Eric's long and distinguished playing career comes to an exciting climax, sensationally aided by events originating almost three-hundred miles away in the nation's capital and which haphazardly wend their way up north, meander through the side streets of the Lancashire mill town of Nelson, and arrive at the stadium with a bang. The tale is then brought up to date with a modern day twist of its own.
