Die Meeresbiologin Alison Shaw hat mit ihrem Team einen unglaublichen wissenschaftlichen Durchbruch erzielt: Tiere mit menschlicher Intelligenz sind kein Märchen mehr. Sie will weiterforschen, doch dann taucht in Südamerika ein lange verschollen geglaubtes russisches U-Boot auf. Welches Geheimnis hat es vom Meeresgrund geborgen? Die Navy schickt ihre Sonderermittler John Clay und Steve Cesare, um Licht ins Dunkel zu bringen. Schon bald stoßen die beiden auf erste Ungereimtheiten, die sie nur mit Alisons Hilfe lösen können. Eine atemberaubende Jagd quer über den Globus beginnt.
Manche Rätsel sollten besser ungelöst bleiben ... Im Karibischen Meer muss ein U-Boot von einer Sekunde auf die andere seine Mission abbrechen. Dann verschwindet es spurlos. Die näheren Umstände sind ungeklärt. In seiner Verzweiflung wendet sich Sonderermittler John Clay an die Meeresbiologin Alison Shaw, der das scheinbar Unmögliche gelungen ist: Sie hat einen Weg gefunden, mit Delfinen zu kommunizieren. Clay schickt Alisons Schützlinge los, in der Hoffnung, die hochintelligenten Tiere könnten eine Spur des verschollenen U-Boots finden. Doch was sie auf dem Grund des Ozeans entdecken, wird die Menschheit in ihren Grundfesten für immer erschüttern...

Two of Time magazine’s “Heroes of the Environment” reject the status quo of liberal politics and offer a bold vision for addressing climate change. Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus triggered a firestorm of controversy with their self-published essay “The Death of Environmentalism,” which argued that the existing model of environmentalism cannot adequately address global warming and that a new politics needs to take its place. In this follow-up to their essay, the authors give an expansive and eloquent manifesto for political change. American values have changed dramatically since the environmental movement’s greatest victories in the 1960s. And while global warming presents exponentially greater challenges than any past pollution problem, environmentalists continue to employ the same tired and ineffective tactics. Making the case for abandoning old categories (nature versus the market; left versus right), the authors articulate a new pragmatism that has already found champions in prominent figures such as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Seeing a connection between the failures of environmentalism and the failures of the entire left-leaning political agenda, the authors point the way toward an aspirational politics that will resonate with modern American values and be capable of tackling our most pressing challenges. “To win, Nordhaus and Shellenberger persuasively argue, environmentalists must stop congratulating themselves for their own willingness to confront inconvenient truths and must focus on building a politics of shared hope rather than relying on a politics of fear.” —The New York Times

T his is a story about time, and the time travel that goes on inside our minds. It's the story about the way our consciousness lives its life, the way it falls through the time inside our minds back into the past, helplessly, and sometimes dangerously. And it's about the way it undertakes the heroic journey back again into this present moment, where it does its greatest work and experiences its most profound wisdom and peace. I've dreamed of creating a kind of experience which might help bring a reader, an audience, to see what's at the flash point of a major personal transformation. I don't mean just a feeling of hope or inspiration. I want for people to see--to really see--what I believe the mind looks like inside: what astounding things it's made of, how the past lives right there inside it, and how to decipher and break that spell we call emotional pain, which comes from that past. And I also want to convey some things I've learned about the nature of this present moment we're in, and how to mobilize new strength in order to feel steady, serene, resilient, and newly alive to it. And by doing this, I wanted to create something that might shorten how long it would take to reach a lasting breakthrough. --From the Introduction "Fredric Hartman's psychotherapy guide is, quite literally, a life-changer...you'll probably become as mesmerized by the power and the light that shines through this book as I was. I was profoundly impacted by what I read...This is a special book..." --READERS' FAVORITE "Fredric Hartman's psychotherapy guide is, quite literally, a life-changer...you'll probably become as mesmerized by the power and the light that shines through this book as I was. I was profoundly impacted by what I read...This is a special book..." --READERS' FAVORITE In The Breakthrough, Dr. Fredric C. Hartman paints a compelling picture of emotional pain and its context within the human mind. Set in the dramatic backdrop of a therapy session as a stage play, featuring Dr. Hartman as the psychologist and Human Consciousness itself as "the patient," this is a practical guide for anyone locked within the grip of troubling memories and pain. In his play, Dr. Hartman tells the story about our vulnerability to painful emotions, which flare up from the depths of our minds, casting spells over us. As the play unfolds, he develops two powerful ways to strengthen our consciousness enough to break these spells: one, by recognizing and grappling with the two surprisingly simple thoughts that lie at the heart--and generate the pain--in each of our negative emotions, and two, by learning to stay focused on the present moment--the single moment we spend our entire lives in--whose mysterious, unexpected nature he describes in vivid detail. The Breakthrough is a complete, entertaining, practical plan for how to overcome emotional distress and embrace a calmer and more fulfilling way to experience life.

In 1944 a groundbreaking operation repaired the congenital heart defect known as blue baby syndrome. The operation's success brought the surgeon Alfred Blalock international fame and paved the way for open-heart surgery. But the technique had been painstakingly developed by Vivien Thomas, Blalock's African American lab assistant, who stood behind Blalock in the operating room to give him step-by-step instructions. The stories of this medical and social breakthrough and the lives of Thomas, Blalock, and their colleague Dr. Helen Taussig are intertwined in this compelling nonfiction narrative.

It is the breath of the memory of a great love that you gave in an infinite way. Yes, it was a wonderful journey through the years, through the days. Great was the moment without the last question of where to go and why. Life goes into trains, in the counting of the trains you are having a hard time, especially when your heart is racing, when the love gives you more pain, that you lose your orientation and your sight and senses slip away and you are disturbed in the meantime. What will come, you have guessed it, it takes your strength and pushes you to the ground, as if it were the forest, the young, to clear, which is only growing with its trunks, the thin with the delicate bark and the root branches that begin to grasp in a ground that looks friendly towards you. It stays with you, the last breath, it's for you. My last eyelid will envelop you with the mantle of joy and longing. See that it is worn and has the patches of pain and loneliness on the sleeves. What then can arise anew, that is something completely different, whose name nobody knows, and whose form from the unformed no one suspects and no one draws. That's the way it is, and that's the way it will be: the idea is great and powerful, we can not stand against it, but we are carried far to it. It is a flight that does not stop after us. Pull the splinter out of my breath and hold it tight, untie the fetter from your breath, so that we can breathe and taste some of the freedom in the lungs. It is the mourner for the silent, the once brave and happy helper, the friend of the children and the elderly. He will miss us on the fields of crops and crops, on the squares and streets of simple life. Now the language lies perfected or unfinished in the gone-away, as if it sleeps for eternity in silence with the good heart, who now silently carries the past into the future and no longer thinks of returning to earth. It is imaginable that the friend of the children and the elderly watches out of the space of great freedom for what the people down here are trying to understand and often contradict each other.

The ability to distinguish reality from fantasy is supposedly the root of sanity. But if a man lives in two worlds, and both are real, what then? Is he mad, or sane? One person, or two? And if one of his worlds should begin to grow dim, a shadow world, could one say he was in danger of going sane?
