In Edinburgh, a couple, Rabih and Kirsten, fall in love. They get married, they have children -- but no relationship is as simple as "happily ever after." The Course of Love is a novel that explores what happens after the birth of love, what it takes to maintain love, and what happens to our original ideals under the pressures of an average existence. With philosophical insight and psychological acumen, Alain de Botton shows that our Romantic dreams may do us a grave disservice -- and explores what the alternatives might be. The conclusion, as the characters gradually discover, is that love is not "an enthusiasm," but rather a "skill" that must be slowly and often painfully learnt. This is a Romantic novel in the true sense, one interested in exploring how love can survive and thrive in the long term.

A Course of Love is for troubled hearts what A Course in Miracles is for troubled minds: revelation, comfort, and call to transforming union. The prophetic messages of our time are about the end of the rule of the thinking mind. They call for a new way of knowing. A Course of Love provides the bridge to that new way of knowing. It instills the courage of heart that it takes to give up thinking as the cornerstone, the very foundation, on which our world rests. With messages that join heart and mind in unity, this Voice of love replaces our inner voice of fear and shows us a way to end our identity crisis and our separation from God.

A Course of Love is a book that changes lives because its purpose is to return you to your true Self. That one change will completely change your life and the world. Both individuals and humanity as a whole are now passing through a tremendous transformation. Are you ready to: KNOW YOURSELF in a new way, without judging yourself? ACCEPT ALL YOUR FEELINGS without rejecting them or projecting them onto others, thus remaining in harmony with who you are? LET GO of the perceptions and judgments of the mind, turning instead to the wisdom of your heart? This Second Edition contains the supplement, “Dialogue Unveiled.” ACOL is more than a book. It offers a new way of living and being. ACOL posits that all changes we would like to see happening in our lives, even in the world, stem from a single change: moving from seeing ourselves as separate individuals, to seeing the truth thatwe are an integral part of life, and of an eternal Consciousness that exists in Unity. ACOL is a call to move into love's embrace. As we remember our true identity, we let go of previous limiting beliefs that brought about experiences of struggle, loneliness, and pain. Our authentic Self leads us to live in certainty and with a clear sense of meaning and purpose. ACOL is often experienced as more of a transmission than a text. It keeps on revealing more, even to those who have read it numerous times before. Many readers find it to be truly alive. Though it stands by itself, ACOL is complementary to A Course in Miracles.Like ACIM, ACOL presents itself through the Voice of Jesus. It says that the two Courses work “hand-in-hand.” Many students of ACIM recognize the Voice. Despite its name, ACOL does not “teach love,” for “love cannot be taught but only recognized.” ACOL leads to the re-discovery our shared heartbeat, a union with One and a relationship with All. And despite its name as a “course,” it does not call for effort but for awareness. “While you continue to put effort into learning what cannot be learned, as you continue to see yourself as a student seeking to acquire what you do not yet have, you cannot recognize the unity in which you exist.” ACOL invites the reader to recover a memory that your heart has never lost. The goal is beyond learning. The goal is direct knowing through realizing one's true identity.

The Age of Aquarius has dawned upon man. This book is a testament of the new age to herald the Arc of the Covenant -- The Dream. This is the Promised Land. It is the Law written in the heart of man. We were meant to awaken to a greater multi-dimensional awareness in which our spirit is free. It is a known fact that everyone dreams every night. How can one then awaken without a dream? The process of awakening begins with a dream. The revelation of our true potential has been staring us in the face night after night and we have dismissed it as idle ramblings of the mind. For me, the process began with a series of precognitive dreams culminating in a miracle wheat penny that would set me firmly on the path of illumination guided by my dreams; my inner voice. As external confirmation, the universe in synchronous fashion placed pennies on my path at precisely the right place and time to coincide with the magical "ah ha" experiences that come from working with dreams. Here is how it happened to me.

Acclaimed by the Daily Mail as 'definitive and harrowing' , this is the final volume of 'The People's Trilogy', begun by the Samuel Johnson prize-winning Mao's Great Famine. After the economic disaster of the Great Leap Forward that claimed tens of millions of lives between 1958 and 1962, an ageing Mao launched an ambitious scheme to shore up his reputation and eliminate those he viewed as a threat to his legacy. The stated goal of the Cultural Revolution was to purge the country of bourgeois, capitalist elements he claimed were threatening genuine communist ideology. But the Chairman also used the Cultural Revolution to turn on his colleagues, some of them longstanding comrades-in-arms, subjecting them to public humiliation, imprisonment and torture. Young students formed Red Guards, vowing to defend the Chairman to the death, but soon rival factions started fighting each other in the streets with semi-automatic weapons in the name of revolutionary purity. As the country descended into chaos, the military intervened, turning China into a garrison state marked by bloody purges that crushed as many as one in fifty people. When the army itself fell victim to the Cultural Revolution, ordinary people used the political chaos to resurrect the marked and hollow out the party's ideology. In short, they buried Maoism. In-depth interviews and archival research at last give voice to the people and the complex choices they faced, undermining the picture of conformity that is often understood to have characterised the last years of Mao's regime. By demonstrating that decollectivisation from below was an unintended consequence of a decade of violent purges and entrenched fear, Frank Dikotter casts China's most tumultuous era in a wholly new light. Written with unprecedented access to previously classified party documents from secret police reports to unexpurgated versions of leadership speeches, this third chapter in Frank Dikotter's extraordinarily lucid and ground-breaking 'People's Trilogy' is a devastating reassessment of the history of the People's Republic of China.

The bestselling author of The Architecture of Happiness and The Art of Travel spends a week at an airport in a wittily intriguing meditation on the "non-place" that he believes is the centre of our civilization. In the summer of 2009, Alain de Botton was invited by the owners of Heathrow airport to become their first ever writer-in-residence. Given unprecedented, unrestricted access to wander around one of the world's busiest airports, he met travellers from all over the globe, and spoke with everyone from baggage handlers to pilots, and senior executives to the airport chaplain. Based on these conversations he has produced this extraordinary meditation on the nature of travel, work, relationships, and our daily lives. Working with the renowned documentary photographer Richard Baker, he explores the magical and the mundane, and the interactions of travellers and workers all over this familiar but mysterious "non-place," which by definition we are eager to leave. Taking the reader through departures, "air-side," and the arrivals hall, de Botton shows with his usual combination of wit and wisdom that spending time in an airport can be more revealing than we might think.
