Shadow Box by , Summary

George Plimpton makes his riskiest foray into participatory journalism -- stepping into the ring against a champion boxer -- in Shadow Box, repackaged and including never-before-seen content from the Plimpton archives. Stepping into the ring against light-heavyweight champion Archie Moore, George Plimpton pauses to wonder what ever induced him to become a participatory journalist. Bloodied but unbowed, he holds his own in the bout -- and lives to tell, in this timeless book on boxing and its devotees, among them Ali, Joe Frazier, Ernest Hemingway, and Norman Mailer. Shadow Box is one of Plimpton's most engaging studies of professional sport, told through the eyes of an inquisitive and astute amateur. From the gym, the locker room, ringside, and even in the harsh glare of the ring itself, Plimpton documents what it is like to be a boxer, an artist of mayhem.

Shadow Box by Elizabeth Cooke Summary

Shadow Box is the passionate story of a woman, who as she matures, breaks out of the enclosing case with a glass pane that has displayed her as a sexual object. It describes her expanding awareness, as mores change and women gain newfound self acceptance and strength. Today, there is not only the glass ceiling of power for a woman to shatter, but the glass box of gender equality to smash, a different dynamic, resulting in the shadow box of sexual submission and repression lying in pieces before her and a life to be truly lived.

Muhammad Ali by Thomas Hauser Summary

A sweeping biography of one of the greatest and most provocative athletes of all time—“a life that needs to be understood whether you care a whit about boxing or not” (The Boston Globe). Athlete, activist, rebel, poet, legend—Muhammad Ali stood larger than life in the imagination of hundreds of millions of people around the world. A gold medalist at the 1960 Olympics, he won the heavyweight championship at age twenty-two by conquering Sonny Liston in dramatic fashion. In the weeks after the upset victory, he confirmed his membership in the Nation of Islam and told reporters he would no longer answer to his “slave name”: Cassius Clay. The political establishment stripped him of his heavyweight title when he refused induction into the United States Army during the height of the war in Vietnam. Ultimately, Ali returned to reclaim his crown, prevailing in epic fights against the likes of Joe Frazier and George Foreman. His talent and charisma—and above all, his adherence to principle—made him a cultural icon and one of the most beloved sporting figures of all time. But that is only half the tale. Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times is also the story of Ali, the man. Author Thomas Hauser got closer to Ali than any previous biographer. His work—told in Ali’s own words and those of hundreds of family members, friends, rivals, and others who interacted with “The Greatest” over the decades—reveals a deeply spiritual, complex man, whose public and private battles, including his struggle against the devastating effects of Parkinson’s disease, gave new meaning to the word courage and changed forever our conception of what makes a champion. Heralded by the New York Times as “the first definitive biography of the boxer who transcended sports as no other athlete ever has,” Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the legacy of one of the twentieth century’s most charismatic and controversial superstars. This ebook includes rare photos authorized by Muhammad Ali Enterprises.

Jack Johnson, Rebel Sojourner by Theresa Runstedtler Summary

In his day, Jack Johnson—born in Texas, the son of former slaves—was the most famous black man on the planet. As the first African American World Heavyweight Champion (1908–1915), he publicly challenged white supremacy at home and abroad, enjoying the same audacious lifestyle of conspicuous consumption, masculine bravado, and interracial love wherever he traveled. Jack Johnson, Rebel Sojourner provides the first in-depth exploration of Johnson’s battles against the color line in places as far-flung as Sydney, London, Cape Town, Paris, Havana, and Mexico City. In relating this dramatic story, Theresa Runstedtler constructs a global history of race, gender, and empire in the early twentieth century.

The Still Hog Theory by Ray Miller Summary

The Still Hog Theory captures the life and times of Ray Miller who grew up in the rural South. He was born at the end of the Great Depression and the start of World War II. His vivid memory of events of early childhood allows him to portray what these events meant to real people. He tells of the many adventures of growing up far removed from modern conveniences. His childhood was spent around a mill complex consisting of a corn mill, cotton gin, lumber mill and country store. He shares the many hilarious events that accompanied these years. He was an avid swimmer but never owned a swim suit until he joined the Army. He was a good student in a two-room country school and shares the adventures of the many characters who attended. He later attended a consolidated county high school where he played in the band that could have been the inspiration for the Music Man. The ones who could think did use the think method. He shares the strategy of running for and being elected Student Body President. He attended college at Georgia Tech and for the first time in his life had the feelings and emotions of one being in a situation completely over ones head. He was an average college student but received the education he needed working a part-time job in the data processing department at Georgia Tech. He was graduated from Georgia Tech in 1961. He entered the computer field as a salesman for a large manufacturer and writes of the rapid growth and changes in that industry. He recounts the history of his family which has been in this country since 1622. His family has been in his home county for almost 200 years and the adventures of his extended family are captured in his many stories. The last twenty five years of his career he served as President/CEO of a data processing company. He attributes the success of the company to the lessons he learned from watching three hogs during slopping time. The Still Hog Theory is a lesson of the satisfaction and success that can be enjoyed by keeping it simple.

Merlyn's Mind by Richard H. Orndorff Summary

Merlyn's Mind completes the original trilogy of segmented story-dreams by the sixth century Merlyn, the Scotsman. The Present, real time story-dream brothers, Robert the poet and Richard the writer, continue their theoretical discussions in real time from May 2007 into late February 2008. The Past, with Grandma's Stories begin with Lady Allowyn and Sir Geoffrey in the sixteenth century and works her way into the twentieth century where Grandma Earth ends her genealogical narratives with the nineteen year olds Robert and Richard Graystone and their future wives, Connie and Cindy Bleacher, at the dining room table celebrating the late FDR's January birthday with their respective parents and grandparents, first in 1960, then again in 1961. Thus, old Grandma completes word-filled human snapshots, fruitfully linking the Graystone and Bleacher generations from 12,000 years ago in the first book to the present, 2008, in the third book. Merlyn's suggestive Future, titled 'Pouch Text,' concludes with all the major characters alive but one. The family group ( a mixture of human beings and their physically and mentally human-like marsupial counterparts from HomePlanets across the Milky Way galaxy) focus on raising seven year old Diplomat, a hybrid of both species and cultures, on Earth.

Cracking Shakespeare by Kelly Hunter Summary

Cracking Shakespeare serves to demystify the process of speaking Shakespeare's language, offering hands-on techniques for drama students, young actors and directors who are intimidated by rehearsing, performing and directing Shakespeare's plays.

Cracking Shakespeare includes practical techniques and exercises to solve this dilemma – including supporting online video which demonstrate how to embody Shakespeare's characters in rehearsal and performance – offering a toolkit that will free actors and directors from their fear of Shakespeare. The result of thirty years of acting, teaching and directing Shakespeare, Kelly Hunter's Cracking Shakespeare is the ideal textbook for actors and directors looking for new ways to approach Shakespeare's plays in a hands-on, down-to-earth style.

Shadow Angels Box Set (Books 5-7: Fallen Angels Series)—Paranormal Romance by Alisa Woods Summary

**LIMITED TIME BOX SET** of books 5-7 from the Broken Souls Series. MICAH I was born in Sin, and shadow is all I’ve known… until her. My father is the most powerful of the shadow angels, and his lessons for me have always been simple, cruel, and full of pain: there is no Love in the shadow realm. I’ve survived by learning those lessons, reading his moods, and keeping my head down when his Wrath is unleashed. But I couldn’t let him again use the soft body of a woman to teach me not to care… so I helped Ren escape. I let her go because I can never have her—this way, at least the baby and her are safe. Only now, my father’s bent on destroying everything in his mad quest to take down the Light angels and enslave the humanity he loathes. And the woman I love is once again in his sights… REN I’ve got a bad habit of picking Bad Boys… but the prince of the shadow realm? Really? Micah was going to be a hot, one-night fling—her last Bad Boy before she straightened up her life for good. After that, she would find a grown-up man who didn’t need a woman to fix his life. But tomorrow turned into a week later, and suddenly, she was waking up in love and totally pregnant with Micah’s baby. And trapped in a hellscape of shadow angels in the middle of an immortal war. All she wanted was Micah’s love… but this time, Mr. Wrong was Mr. Devastatingly Wrong. And no matter what the Light angels said, she wasn’t going back to Hell to fix him—even if it might stop a war. In a war that threatens mortals and immortals alike, those in shadow have the most to lose—if the Warrior Angels awaken, it will spell their doom. Redemption might be found through the soft embrace of Love, but how to find Love in the middle of war? Especially when the forces of darkness will do anything to stop it.

Introduction to Multimodal Analysis by David Machin Summary

Introduction to Multimodal Analysis is a unique and accessible textbook that clearly and critically explains this groundbreaking approach to visual analysis. Each chapter outlines the tools for analysis and takes the reader through examples of analysis, providing a model that can then be followed. All visual media compositions, such as photographs, advertisements, newspapers and websites, are carefully designed. A photograph of a soldier, an advertisement for a car, a magazine cover or the opening titles to a news programme are thought out to create the appropriate effect. Designers use semiotic tools such as colour, framing, focus, positioning of elements and font style to communicate with the viewer. These choices make up a visual language that we can analyse. Multimodal analysis looks at the separate components of this language to build up a toolkit for analysing the grammar of visual design. The book includes an assessment of the claim that there is a visual grammar and important differences between images and language and the way they create meaning are identified. Including images throughout and a colour plate section, Introduction to Multimodal Analysis is an essential resource for students studying multimodality within visual communication in media and cultural studies, critical discourse analysis, journalism studies or linguistics.

It's Okay to Laugh by Nora McInerny Purmort Summary

“Thank you for the perfect blend of nostalgia-drenched humor, wit, and heartbreak, Nora.” — Mandy Moore comedy = tragedy + time/rosé Twenty-seven-year-old Nora McInerny Purmort bounced from boyfriend to dopey “boyfriend” until she met Aaron—a charismatic art director and comic-book nerd who once made Nora laugh so hard she pulled a muscle. When Aaron was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, they refused to let it limit their love. They got engaged on Aaron’s hospital bed and had a baby boy while he was on chemo. In the period that followed, Nora and Aaron packed fifty years of marriage into the three they got, spending their time on what really matters: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, each other, and Beyoncé. A few months later, Aaron died in Nora’s arms. The obituary they wrote during Aaron’s hospice care revealing his true identity as Spider-Man touched the nation. With It’s Okay to Laugh, Nora puts a young, fresh twist on the subjects of mortality and resilience. What does it actually mean to live your “one wild and precious life” to the fullest? How can a joyful marriage contain more sickness than health? How do you keep going when life kicks you in the junk? In this deeply felt and deeply funny memoir, Nora gives her readers a true gift—permission to struggle, permission to laugh, permission to tell the truth and know that everything will be okay. It’s Okay to Laugh is a love letter to life, in all its messy glory; it reads like a conversation with a close friend, and leaves a trail of glitter in its wake. This book is for people who have been through some shit. This is for people who aren’t sure if they’re saying or doing the right thing (you’re not, but nobody is). This is for people who had their life turned upside down and just learned to live that way. For people who have laughed at a funeral or cried in a grocery store. This is for everyone who wondered what exactly they’re supposed to be doing with their one wild and precious life. I don’t actually have the answer, but if you find out, will you text me?
