I was already so ashamed of myself...I got to the point where I would duck behind shelves at the grocery store to avoid talking to people...I went out of the house as little as possible and would never invite anybody to come to my home, other than my best friend. I was determined to hide this elephant that had taken over my life. After being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder at the age of thirty six, Kim Gay spent several frustrating years looking for answers to her questions about the disorder only to find that very little was known about ADHD when it pertained to adults. Her quest for knowledge and enlightenment inspired her to write this book with the hope of helping others who keep finding themselves at the same dead end. Hiding an Elephant explains in detail the symptoms of adult ADHD, and through her personal experience, Kim Gay encourages other sufferers not to be ashamed of their condition any longer. 'A relaxed, easy reading experience filled with humor, insight and life strategies. Gain a personal look into the unique challenges of being a child, a daughter, a student and eventually an adult, a wife, and a mother with ADHD.' Michelle L. Solo, LMSW, ACSW

"This book is not only about recording the mass murder, the war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the Sri Lankan armed forces, but also an effort to bring to the fore the process engineered by the successive Sri Lankan governments by which the Sinhala ruling elites are both willed and empowered to deprive and deny the Tamils, both individually and as part of a broader family and ethnic groupings, of their basic rights and dignity. Thus, recognising the process of genocide of ethnic Tamils in Sri Lanka" -- Preface, page xvii.

Pull back the curtain on the real history of magic – and discover why magic really matters If you read a standard history of magic, you learn that it begins in ancient Egypt, with the resurrection of a goose in front of the Pharaoh. You discover how magicians were tortured and killed during the age of witchcraft. You are told how conjuring tricks were used to quell rebellious colonial natives. The history of magic is full of such stories, which turn out not to be true. Behind the smoke and mirrors, however, lies the real story of magic. It is a history of people from humble roots, who made and lost fortunes, and who deceived kings and queens. In order to survive, they concealed many secrets, yet they revealed some and they stole others. They engaged in deception, exposure, and betrayal, in a quest to make the impossible happen. They managed to survive in a world in which a series of technological wonders appeared, which previous generations would have considered magical. Even today, when we now take the most sophisticated technology for granted, we can still be astonished by tricks that were performed hundreds of years ago. The Secret History of Magic reveals how this was done. It is about why magic matters in a world that no longer seems to have a place for it, but which desperately needs a sense of wonder.

Here is the seminal biography of the magician's magician, Howard Thurston, a man who surpassed Houdini in the eyes of showmen and fans and set the standard fro how stage magic is performed today. Everyone knows Houdini-but who was Thurston? In this rich, vivid biography of the "greatest magician in the world," celebrated historian of stage magic Jim Steinmeyer captures the career and controversies of the wonder-worker extraordinaire, Howard Thurston. The public's fickleness over magicians has left Thurston all but forgotten today. Yet Steinmeyer shows how his story is one of the most remarkable in show business. During his life, from 1869 to 1936, Thurston successfully navigated the most dramatic changes in entertainment-from street performances to sideshows to wagon tours through America's still-wild West to stage magic amid the glitter of grand theaters. Thurston became one of America's most renowned vaudeville stars, boldly performing an act with just a handful of playing cards, and then had the foresight to leave vaudeville, expanding his show into an extravaganza with more than forty tons of apparatusand costumes. His touring production was an American institution for nearly thirty years, and Thurston earned a brand name equal to Ziegfeld or Ringling Brothers. Steinmeyer explores the stage and psychological rivalry between Thurston and Houdini during the first decades of the twentieth century- a contest that Thurston won. He won with a bigger show, a more successful reputation, and the title of America's greatest magician. In The Last Greatest Magician in the World, Thurston's magic show is revealed as the one that animates our collective memories.
