This moving, inspiring, and beautifully illustrated book tells the inside story of the building of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in our nation's capital. It also includes, in an appendix in the back, the names of the 58,000 Americans who lost their lives in Southeast Asia during the war - the names that are inscribed on the Memorial's granite walls. Jan C. Scruggs, who was wounded in Vietnam, conceived of the idea for the Memorial while doing graduate work in psychology and studying the war's impact on Vietnam veterans. Money for the project was raised entirely by subscription, and a design competition was won by a young Chinese-American student, Maya Ying Lin. Her stunningly simple concept, which one critic has already called the great American work of art for this century - two polished granite walls in the shape of a V, one pointing toward the Washington Monument and the other toward the Lincoln Memorial, inscribed with the names of the dead - now stands on Washington's Mall, where thousands of people visit it every week. Since the wall was completed and opened to the public in November 1982, a bronze flagpole and an eight-foot statue of three infantrymen, designed by sculptor Frederick Hart, have been added to the site. Some observers have said it seems as though the soldiers are searching for their own names on the Memorial. Both the Memorial itself and this story of how it came to be are remarkable testaments to the Americans who served and to those who died in the Vietnam War, and to the fact that in America one individual's dream, no matter how difficult, can still come true. hardcover, Ausgabe: 1st, Label: Harpercollins, Harpercollins, Produktgruppe: Book, Publiziert: 1985-04, Studio: Harpercollins, Verkaufsrang: 2411264

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good LifeThe Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A…
#1 New York Times BestsellerOver 3 million copies soldIn this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

Can't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the OddsCan't Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds
For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a U.S. Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events, inspiring Outside magazine to name him The Fittest (Real) Man in America. In Can't Hurt Me, he shares his astonishing life story and reveals that most of us tap into only 40% of our capabilities. Goggins calls this The 40% Rule, and his story illuminates a path that anyone can follow to push past pain, demolish fear, and reach their full potential.
