Virginia Grohl, mother of Dave Grohl, had not seen any of it coming. Not the arenas of screaming fans, not Nirvana or the Foo Fighters, not the induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and certainly not her son, Dave, performing with Sir Paul McCartney at The White House. Theirs had always been a life full of music - the Grohl family sang together on long car trips, harmonising to Motown and David Bowie - yet Virginia never expected her son to become a musician. But when Virginia saw Nirvana play for the first time to crazed applause from thousands of screaming fans, she knew nothing would ever be the same. She was the mother of a rock star. And as Virginia watched her son's star rise, she often wondered about the other mothers who raised sons and daughters who became rock stars. Were they as surprised as she was about their children's fame? Virginia often wondered about the mystical force that urges some of us to listen, to play, to surround ourselves with music. She wanted to talk about it with the other mothers whose sons and daughters were sharing stages with Dave, and she decided to seek them out wherever they were. So began a two-year odyssey, where she had conversations with such women from all over the world as Verna Griffin, Dr Dre's mother, Carolyn Williams, Pharell William's mother, Janis Winehouse, Amy Winehouse's mother, Patsy Noah, Adam Levine's mother, Donna Haim, mother to the Haim sisters and Hester Diamond, Mike D of The Beastie Boys' mother, to name just a few. From Cradle to Stage will appeal to mothers everywhere, but particularly to those with children who march (or play) to the beat of their own drum; and it's for those children who have their mothers to thank for everything. For music lovers and rock fans, it's the ultimate backstage pass-for anyone who has wondered what it's like to be on the inside...looking out at a packed arena. Featuring a foreword by Dave Grohl and exclusive family photographs, interviews are interwoven with the Grohl family story and the resultant book is a very intimate portrait of what makes a rock star.

In the midst of uncertainty, we are forced back to basics to re-discover tools for living. She identifies anchors that can help us navigate our lives by understanding our needs from the early years and during our developmental path to maturity. She charts an emotional and psychological map from birth to death, focusing on the birth of the personality and pathways that include learning to love and gaining the capacity for intimacy. Bringing our pre-verbal selves into consciousness is now more possible with advances in psychological practices, and this leads to a better understanding of our nature and needs. Those who missed out on emotional milestones can, as adults, revisit their early years to resolve those issues that impact on their capacity to mature, the quality of their relationships, and their ability to regulate their emotions. Finally, Lorraine Rose provides a commentary on recent economic and social models of western society to assess whether these models align with the needs of citizens. Ways of assessing the health of our society help us better discern our needs on a personal and societal level. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 2.9px 0.0px; font: 10.0px 'Avenir Light'} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px Avenir} At last: you are not patient 2794 or Syndrome XY: you are a whole human being with a personal history, a family, community and a changing body. Lorraine Rose’s enthralling book is unlike anything I have seen before and twice as satisfying. This is your mind and mine from first burp to senior reflections - a story all of us want to understand as we grow. Now we can. – Robyn Williams, Science broadcaster I can’t recommend this book highly enough. Presenting complex and fascinating aspects of the development of individuals in contemporary life, this absorbing and satisfyingly accessible book is a must read; it is a have-to-have book. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 2.9px 0.0px; font: 10.0px 'Avenir Light'} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 10.0px 'Avenir Light'} span.s1 {font: 10.0px Avenir} – Jill Henry, counsellor/psychotherapist, former publisher for Cambridge Press and Oxford Press in Australia

In the long trek of human history, the adage that there will never be peace among the nations until there is peace among the religions has never been truer. The growing trend toward spiritually inspired violence throughout the emerging global village of the twenty-first century has taken a terrible toll on the lives of thousands of innocent victims. The primary purpose of this book is to address this issue head-on by examining the role that the earth's diverse faith communities can play in stopping the needless hatreds and hostilities that all too often arise from the search for spiritual fulfillment. At this stage of human evolution, nothing is more urgent.
