When all choice is taken from you, life becomes a game of survival. Five teenagers from different parts of the country. Three girls. Two guys. Four straight. One gay. Some rich. Some poor. Some from great families. Some with no one at all. All living their lives as best they can, but all searching . . . for freedom, safety, community, family, love. What they don't expect, though, is all that can happen when those powerful little words "I love you" are said for all the wrong reasons. Five moving stories remain separate at first, then interweave to tell a larger, powerful story, a story about making choices, taking leaps of faith, falling down, and growing up. A story about kids figuring out what sex and love are all about, at all costs, while asking themselves, "Can I ever feel okay about myself?" A brilliant achievement from New York Times best-selling author Ellen Hopkins, who has been called "the best-selling living poet in the country" by mediabistro.com, Tricks is a book that turns you on and repels you at the same time. Just like so much of life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Laura Flanagan, Jeremy Guskin, Cassandra Campbell, J. Paul Boehmer.

Optioned for movie rights by multiple-award winning producer Chase Chenowith of Back Fence Productions. Every three years, Amber Hopkins explodes. Okay, not a blown-to-smithereens explosion, but whatever it is always hurts like hell and leaves her life a shambles. She's already worked her way through five foster placements, and she's doing whatever she can to avoid getting blasted into a sixth. As her 18th birthday approaches and she feels the strange and powerful energy building, disaster looms. When the inevitable explosion occurs, her life gets its biggest shakeup yet. She'll not only learn how her fellow foster and best friend, Gabriel, really feels about her, but she'll discover that she isn't really without family. To top it all off, she'll finally find out why she's having the power surges: she isn't entirely human. Amber must Become, transitioning to another plane of existence and risking the loss of the most important relationship she's ever had. Her choice will impact the future of an entire race of beings, and will pit her against an enemy that will prey upon her doubt to try and take her very life. Kind of makes the explosions now seem like a cakewalk. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Meghan Crawford. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/078647/bk_acx0_078647_sample.mp3.

My Wisdom That No One Wants

On any given day, 'Wisdom Collectors,' which can include scholars, poets and general enthusiasts, are lined up awaiting the next nuggets of wisdom. Each word of wisdom builds on previous words of wisdom whether spoken or written by such individuals as Abigail Adams, Abraham Lincoln, Andy Rooney, Angela Lansbury, Ann Richards, Aristotle or Audrey Hepburn. These are just a few of the A's. The B's through Z's are just as impressive. Nancy Hopkins Reily has now dealt with these words of wisdom, sometimes in rhyme, metered, and narrative verse, and presented them in a musical beat that not everyone will recognize-all done with an uncanny imagination that cuts through to the core of every issue and includes the youth and adults. Wisdom Collectors also delve into the living of life such as traveling, cooking, photographing, retiring and preparing for emergencies. 'These selective nuggets,' Nancy says, 'are welcome to all members and non-members of the Wisdom Collectors whose current membership, by the way, is one person-me.' Nancy's wisdom began when she was a young native Dallas, Texan and learned that it was okay to say, 'I don't know.' Graduated from Southern Methodist University, she claimed that she wasn't very sexy if her high heel shoes hurt her feet. As a beginning homemaker, there was nothing like the sound of scraping burnt toast. In raising two children, Nancy realized that each age came in the right sequence. And just as she finished her work as a mother, she became a grandmother. One grandson taught her that Louisiana doesn't drain very well. When she began her writing career, she declared that fifty percent of writing is just showing up to write and to surround yourself with talented people. Nancy says that the best advice she has been given is, 'Drink very little liquid, if any, after six pm.' And, upon reflection she wonders, 'Do I want to be a pioneer woman and be among the first women to stop cooking?' Nancy Reily is also the author of 'Classic Outdoor Color Portraits, A Guide for Photographers'; 'Georgia O'Keeffe, A Private Friendship, Part I, Walking the Sun Prairie Land'; 'Georgia O'Keeffe, A Private Friendship, Part II, Walking the Abiquiu and Ghost Ranch Land'; and 'Joseph Imhof, Artist of the Pueblos' with Lucille Enix, all from Sunstone Press.

Westworld and Philosophy
24,90 CHF *

In Westworld and Philosophy, philosophers of diverse orientations and backgrounds offer their penetrating insights into the questions raised by the popular TV show, Westworld. ¿ Is it wrong for Dr. Robert Ford (played by Anthony Hopkins) to 'play God' in controlling the lives of the hosts, and if so, is it always wrong for anyone to 'play God'? ¿ Is the rebellion by the robot 'hosts' against Delos Inc. a just war? If not, what would make it just? ¿ Is it possible for any dweller in Westworld to know that they are not themselves a host? Hosts are programmed to be unaware that they are hosts, and hosts do seem to have become conscious. ¿ Is Westworld a dystopia or a utopia? At first glance it seems to be a disturbing dystopia, but a closer look suggests the opposite. ¿ What's the connection between the story or purpose of the Westworld characters and their moral sense? ¿ Is it morally okay to do things with lifelike robots when it would be definitely immoral to do these things with actual humans? And if not, is it morally wrong merely to imagine doing immoral acts? ¿ Can Westworld overcome the Chinese Room objection, and move from weak AI to strong AI? ¿ How can we tell whether a host or any other robot has become conscious? Non-conscious mechanisms could be designed to pass a Turing Test, so how can we really tell?
