Shots in the Dark Book Excerpt:

In the years after World War II, Westerners and Japanese alike elevated Zen to the quintessence of spirituality in Japan. Pursuing the sources of Zen as a Japanese ideal, Shoji Yamada uncovers the surprising role of two cultural touchstones: Eugen Herrigel’s Zen in the Art of Archery and the Ryoanji dry-landscape rock garden. Yamada shows how both became facile conduits for exporting and importing Japanese culture. First published in German in 1948 and translated into Japanese in 1956, Herrigel’s book popularized ideas of Zen both in the West and in Japan. Yamada traces the prewar history of Japanese archery, reveals how Herrigel mistakenly came to understand it as a traditional practice, and explains why the Japanese themselves embraced his interpretation as spiritual discipline. Turning to Ryoanji, Yamada argues that this epitome of Zen in fact bears little relation to Buddhism and is best understood in relation to Chinese myth. For much of its modern history, Ryoanji was a weedy, neglected plot; only after its allegorical role in a 1949 Ozu film was it popularly linked to Zen. Westerners have had a part in redefining Ryoanji, but as in the case of archery, Yamada’s interest is primarily in how the Japanese themselves have invested this cultural site with new value through a spurious association with Zen.

One Arrow, One Life is a classic treatise on kyudo, the art of traditional Japanese archery, and its relation to the ideals and practice of Zen Buddhism. With a solid introduction to the form and practice of Zen meditation, as well as a thorough description of the Eight Stages of Kyudo, One Arrow, One Life captures the subtleties of the complementary nature of thought and action, movement and stillness.

Illustrator, Jackson Morisawa's line drawings bring the art of kyudo to life. For those interested in Zen and moving meditation, kyudo practitioners of all levels, as well as students of the Way of martial arts, this volume is an indispensable guidebook.

James Dickey Book Excerpt:

A fascinating biography of one of the most popular, colorful, and notorious American poets of our century. The legendary Southern poet James Dickey never shied away from cultivating a heroic mystique. Like Norman Mailer and Ernest Hemingway, he earned a reputation as a sportsman, boozer, war hero, and womanizer as well as a great poet, novelist, screenwriter, and essayist. But James Dickey made lying both a literary strategy and a protective camouflage; even his family and closest friends failed to distinguish between the mythical James Dickey and the actual man. Henry Hart sees lying as the central theme to Dickey's life; and in this authoritative, immensely entertaining biography he delves deep behind Dickey's many masks. Letters, anecdotes, tall tales and true ones, as well as the reluctant but finally candid cooperation of Dickey himself animate Hart's narration of a remarkable life. Readers of Dickey's National Book Award-winning poetry, his bestselling novel Deliverance, and anyone who witnessed his electrifying readings of his work will savor this book.

Golf and the Grail Book Excerpt:

This book is not yet another manual on how to play golf. Its author is neither a player nor a professional teacher. This is the pupils' book. It is the first of its kind, which makes it unique. It gives an account of the apprentice golfer's quest for perfection, authenticity, and beauty and the long, hard road that must be travelled to achieve this. The journey of initiation necessarily precedes initiation to the golf course. In doing so, this book brings to light a philosophy in the literal sense of the word: the love of wisdom. as described by Shawn Clement, the founding father of Wisdom in Golf, and transmitted throughout Europe by Édouard Montaz, his brilliant disciple. Édouard and Virgile. Master and pupil. The pupil who learns from the master, who in turn learns from the pupil. This virtuous exchange opens up the path to inspired golf. And overturns the normal order of things. Indeed, it brings with it a revelation that sheds new light on the Arthurian legend and the quest for the Grail.

Born to nomadic parents and humble beginnings, Luke Richmond grew up running wild and free in the Australian outback. After finishing school, he joined the Australian Army and served his country overseas as a qualified infantry soldier – an experience that sparked in him an unrelenting desire for adventure. But when he leaves the army Luke finds himself broke and adrift in London, caught up in the soulless world of drug and alcohol addiction.

Within days he is in Thailand, training his mind and body at a Muay Thai boxing camp in the jungles of Phuket. In suffering Luke finds his salvation, and he decides to make the most out of life by seeking adventure in remote corners of the world. Since then Luke has climbed the highest mountains on six continents, set a new world record for ocean rowing across the Atlantic, battled -60 degree temperatures in the Antarctic, witnessed death at high altitude, was held captive in the humid jungles of West Papua and has thrown himself from cliffs in the adrenalin-fueled world of BASE jumping.

The Moments That Define One s Life Book Excerpt:

Each moment in your life comes with a purpose. Although the purpose at times is taken for granted, these moments, when they arise, bring forth a significant meaning for one’s destiny and destination in life. For example, imagine how every person in this world has passed through a moment, full of promises and opportunities, but when that moment passes, he or she has no way of knowing if it will ever rise again. Apparently, whatever the moment may be, our lives are defined by the energy, faith, belief, and action into bringing each moment to life so that it can transcend toward greater moments, dreams, and endeavors. Each moment, by all means, is vital, and the mark that one has left in this world will be measured by what he or she has achieved in the time allowed. Thus, what you do with your life today will define your dreams and destiny as each significant moment rises and the time that is given to it is taken away. This book will help you • Develop a greater sense o • f why each moment in life matters; • Believe in yourself to accomplish any impossible dream or goal; • Generate positive attitudes, faith, and unstoppable principles of action.
