Astonish Me:The Borough Press. ePub edition Maggie Shipstead
This thrilling collection of twenty-one all-original stories, by an all-star list of contributors, will delight and astonish in equal measure with their cunning twists and dazzling reversals.

From a Spiritual Master Unlike Any, A Spiritual Masterpiece Like No Other AUTHOR, TEACHER AND SPIRITUAL MASTER Jed McKenna tells it like it´s never been told before. A true American original, Jed succeeds where countless others have failed by reducing this highest of attainments - Spiritual Enlightenment - to the simplest of terms. Effectively demystifying the mystical, Jed astonishes the reader not by adding to the world´s collected spiritual wisdom, but by taking the spirituality out of spiritual enlightenment. Never before has this elusive topic been treated in so engaging and accessible a manner. A masterpiece of illuminative writing, Spiritual Enlightenment is mandatory reading for anyone following a spiritual path. Part exposé and part how-to manual, this is the first book to explain why failure seems to be the rule in the search for enlightenment - and how the rule can be broken. Says Jed: The truth is that enlightenment is neither remote nor unattainable. It is closer than your skin and more immediate than your next breath. If we wonder why so few seem able to find that which can never be lost, we might recall the child who was looking in the light for a coin he dropped in the dark because ´´the light is better over here.´´ Mankind has spent ages looking in the light for a coin that awaits us not in light and not in dark, but beyond all opposites. That is the message of this book: Spiritual enlightenment, pure and simple.

Dealings with the Firm of Dombey and Son: Wholesale, Retail and for Exportation is one of the best novels by Charles Dickens. This novel astonishes by the endless number of figures and life situations. There are not many novels in the world literature, apart from some later works by Dickens, that are so rich and diversified in colors as Dombey and Son. The small bourgeois characters as well as representatives of the London poor class are created by him with huge love. Mostly all of these people are strange, but their eccentric behavior, that is so funny, makes the characters close and sweet.
