Through his leading role in the three Superman films, Christopher Reeve became so closely identified with the superhero that he wasn't just seen as the actor who played Superman, he was Superman. Which is why the tragic riding accident which left him paralysed from the neck down shocked the world. Superman was not superhuman. It is also why he is now the world's most recognisable person in a wheelchair. In true superhero style, Christopher Reeve refuses to resign himself to the life of a quadriplegic, and is actively campaigning to raise the profile of spinal-cord injury victims and research. Although he was initially told that he would only ever be able to move his head, he can now shrug his shoulders and breathe alone for increasing periods of time, and is determined that he will walk again. It is this extraordinary courage and determination that has made Christopher Reeve the internationally admired figure that he is, and it is this bravery which makes this autobiography about his paralysis and his journey to recovery such a powerful and moving story.

The unfortunate popular perception is that when someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, they are immediately lost to themselves, to those who love them and to those they love. In I'M STILL HERE, John Zeisel shows how you can connect with someone through the fog of dementia and build a relationship with the person within. This groundbreaking book focuses on connecting with Alzheimer's sufferers through the abilities that don't diminish over the course of the disease, such as understanding music, art, facial expressions and touch. By harnessing these capacities, and by using other approaches to treatment, this book demonstrates how it is possible to offer sufferers a quality of life with a connection to others and to the world around them.

There are a few questions that professional artists get asked regularly: Where do you get your ideas? How did you get started? And be honest—are you really in it for the money? Following the highly successful Me Funny and Me Sexy anthologies, Me Artsy answers these eternal questions and more. With essays from fourteen First Nations artists from a variety of disciplines, the collection provides insight into the paths that led each artist to pursue and develop his or her craft. The essays explore many common themes around the role of art in First Nations communities, including the importance of art for creating social change, the role of art in representing Native culture and the fusion of traditional and contemporary techniques. On a more personal level, the essays describe the significance of art in the lives of the contributors, along with their sometimes unlikely journeys to success, stories which are often touched with humour and humility. Chef David Wolfman describes gruelling years of prep work in the kitchens of the exclusive National Club; filmmaker Zacharias Kunuk discusses leaping into his first feature film without knowing how to finance it; fashion designer Kim Picard describes making a dress inspired by coffee beans; and playwright Drew Hayden Taylor tells the story of putting a bullet through his first play and burying it in his yard. Other contributors include actor/playwright Monique Mojica, painter Marianne Nicolson, painter Maxine Noel, blues pianist Murray Porter, scholar Karyn Recollet, dancer/choreographer Santee Smith, director/actor Rose Stella, drummer Steve Teekens, writer Richard Van Camp and manga artist Michael Nicholl Yahgulanaas.

No one truly knows the price you have paid to smile like you do. Physical pain and emotional trauma are not your portion in this life even if they have visited you long and often. You can have victory over the depression and the anxieties of life situations but, there is a cost to strive for it, a price paid to reach so deep and hold on to it once you have it. ¬ Rape, abuse, abandonment, neglect, failed marriages, emotional and physical pain are not there to define us but to shape us through the "refining fire". This deeply moving story uses crisis situations to propel you to victory over the stronghold of the Depression and Anxiety these life situations can bring. Even if you are a sufferer of chronic depression, schizophrenic disorder, bipolar disorder, fibromyalgia or chronic pain; the only way to break these strongholds is to name them. Expose it (Ephesians 5:13), rule it, and claim your victory over it. On this journey of self discovery and awareness building we can weigh the expenses of our losses, we may even see the price paid can be a blessing that's just covered up. By learning who you really are in Christ, pulling apart the myths that surround life's battles you can claim your power, understand yourself and own all of who you are unapologetically. Remembering always that you are fearfully and wonderfully made in God's image. "For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you the victory" (Deuteronomy 20:4).
