Louise L. Hay, whose writings and talks have brought inspiration, hope, and healing to millions of people around the world, credits The Game of Life (and the entire body of work by Florence Scovel Shinn) for inspiring her at a key turning point in her early career. Shinn was one of the gifted teachers who profoundly shaped the field of personal transformation and spiritual growth. Her writings are known for their clarity, simplicity, and power. In addition to the original text of the book, included within is a new interpretation of this transformational classic, titled The Game of Life for Women. This second part of the book speaks directly to women about how to own their true power. At the same time, however, it speaks to men who wish to not only understand the women around them, but also embrace their own power by tapping in to the universal principles beneath gender differences. Whether male or female, you will likely reach a similar conclusion: It is a book for the ages, to be treasured and studied and taken to heart.

The President of Williams College faces a firestorm for not allowing the women's lacrosse team to postpone exams to attend the playoffs. The University of Michigan loses $2.8 million on athletics despite averaging 110,000 fans at each home football game. Schools across the country struggle with the tradeoffs involved with recruiting athletes and updating facilities for dozens of varsity sports. Does increasing intensification of college sports support or detract from higher education's core mission? James Shulman and William Bowen introduce facts into a terrain overrun by emotions and enduring myths. Using the same database that informed The Shape of the River, the authors analyze data on 90,000 students who attended thirty selective colleges and universities in the 1950s, 1970s, and 1990s. Drawing also on historical research and new information on giving and spending, the authors demonstrate how athletics influence the class composition and campus ethos of selective schools, as well as the messages that these institutions send to prospective students, their parents, and society at large. Shulman and Bowen show that athletic programs raise even more difficult questions of educational policy for small private colleges and highly selective universities than they do for big-time scholarship-granting schools. They discover that today's athletes, more so than their predecessors, enter college less academically well-prepared and with different goals and values than their classmates--differences that lead to different lives. They reveal that gender equity efforts have wrought large, sometimes unanticipated changes. And they show that the alumni appetite for winning teams is not--as schools often assume--insatiable. If a culprit emerges, it is the unquestioned spread of a changed athletic culture through the emulation of highly publicized teams by low-profile sports, of men's programs by women's, and of athletic powerhouses by small colleges. Shulman and Bowen celebrate the benefits of collegiate sports, while identifying the subtle ways in which athletic intensification can pull even prestigious institutions from their missions. By examining how athletes and other graduates view The Game of Life--and how colleges shape society's view of what its rules should be--Bowen and Shulman go far beyond sports. They tell us about higher education today: the ways in which colleges set policies, reinforce or neglect their core mission, and send signals about what matters.

Unser Geheimtipp für junge Erwachsene: Eine hinreißende Liebesgeschichte, die weit über das Einzelschicksal hinausgeht. Liebe und Tod als Personifikationen ihrer selbst in einem tödlichen Wettstreit um die Gefühle zweier Liebender. Romeo und Julia, Kleopatra und Mark Anton, Napoleon und Josephine, sie alle waren schon Figuren in dem jahrtausendealten Spiel von Liebe und Tod. Die Regeln sind einfach. Verlieben sich die Paare vor dem ausgewürfelten Termin, hat die Liebe gewonnen, trennen sie sich, triumphiert der Tod und einer der Liebenden muss sterben. Immer wieder steht Henry vor der Tür des Jazzclubs, in dem Flora allabendlich singt. Er ist hingerissen von der schönen jungen Frau, ihrer Stimme und ihrer Musik. Flora dagegen versucht lange, sich gegen ihre Gefühle zu wehren. Ihre Haut ist schwarz und eine Beziehung mit einem weißen jungen Mann ist im Seattle des Jahres 1937 völlig ausgeschlossen. Was Flora und Henry nicht wissen: Sie sind nur Figuren in einem uralten Spiel, in dem die Liebe selbst und ihr alter Widersacher Tod menschliche Gestalt angenommen haben. Und beide nutzen all ihre manipulativen Fähigkeiten, um zu gewinnen.

To thine own self be true... With these stories we are providing a forum for women's voices; a way for women to see each other as role models and mentors, and to say, Hey, she did it. With hard work, I can too. We also see this book as a way of redefining success. Women have often relied on the male view of success, which can centre on money and fame. These count for women, but they aren't the only things we value. Nor do they alone define our success. Being able to combine work and home, being proud of raising a family and still holding down a career, expressing our creativity in whatever ways God intended...these too are success. This book is dedicated to all of the women who have gone before us who have fulfilled their lives but whose stories have not been heard. They've worn many hats and still found the time and strength to do the things that they like most. The old expression, Men build houses, women make homes no longer holds true. Women can now do both.

Sie sind schön, sie haben Geld, sie sind begabt: Emanuela, Simon, Franny, Jess. Mit zielstrebiger Selbstverständlichkeit nehmen sie jede Hürde ihres Studiums in Oxford und sie sind die Freunde von Marc, der lässiger ist als alle anderen, entwaffnend charmant, offenkundig promisk und geradezu obszön reich. James würde alles dafür geben dazuzugehören. Als Jess sich in ihn verliebt, geht dieser Wunsch in Erfüllung, mehr noch, Marc bittet sie alle, bei ihm einzuziehen. Keiner widersteht diesem Angebot und bald belebt eine exklusive WG den alten Herrensitz, mit rauschenden Partys und wechselnden Liebschaften. Ohne es selbst zu merken, verstrickt sich James in eine Abhängigkeit von Marc, aus der er sich, auch als die Gemeinschaft auseinandergeht und trotz seiner Liebe zu Jess, kaum befreien kann. Mit scharfem Blick und scharfer Zunge porträtiert Naomi Alderman eine ganz besondere Facette der geschlossenen Gesellschaft einer Eliteuni versität und lotet dabei die Kräfteverhältnisse von Ehrgeiz und Einsamkeit aus, von Liebe und Macht.

Das Glasperlenspiel

Mit seinem Roman 'Das Glasperlenspiel', an dem der in der Schweiz lebende Hermann Hesse von 1931-1943 arbeitete, zog er die Summe seines Werkes und Denkens. Die immer grössere Verfinsterung der Epoche in diesen Jahren zwang ihn, seinen Gegenentwurf in immer neuen Anläufen zu präzisieren. Hesse wollte, dass das Buch auch in Deutschland erscheinen und seine Wirkung entfalten könnte, und übersetzte den Lebensroman des Josef Knecht in ein utopisches Gleichnis, das scheinbar zeitlos seine Zeit entlarvte.
