How did Roger Lane-Smith build up the world’s largest law firm within 30 years, starting from a tiny office in a Manchester side-street? This compelling autobiography will tell you. Told with candour and great humour, this is the story of one lawyer’s determined quest for the biggest and the best – and shows exactly how it was done. Equally at home with Hollywood celebrities such as Aaron Spelling, David Soul and Joan Collins as with captains of industry and commerce, Roger Lane-Smith really has ‘seen it all’. The story of his life is about much more than the law – he has been close to some of the key moments of the last 30 years, from the legal shenanigans of the icons of popular culture to the deals he has made at the cutting edge of high finance. Everyone with an interest in the law will find this book a treasure trove of information and gossip, and it will appeal equally to anyone keen to see how a successful business can be built through hard work and astute risk-taking.

In my travels across the country, the question asked most frequently is how I went from being a fundamentalist preacher to being a developer of healing techniques using tuning forks. This book is the story of that journey. I feel honored yet humbled to be among those rising to the call to facilitate the new 5th Dimensional energy coming into our third dimensional time/space continuum. Come with me as we journey step by step through my search for answers. After looking at what I refer to in this book as my Fork in the Road, a new truth was born - a truth that provides answers for the Spirit, Mind, and Body. I will share information concerning self-healing using sound, vibration, and frequencies that can clear, cleanse, balance, and focus our lives in all its forms. The ancient Solfeggio frequencies are part of a process that can assist us in creating the possibility of lives without stress, illness, and sickness. Together we will go to the cutting edge of scientific discoveries regarding sound and healing. This book is also a call for Lightworkers to gather in this crucial time of change and transformation on the planet. Join me and others who do not live in fear of the future. Just tune your inner ear and listen to these wonderful new ideas as I share the techniques of working with sound and, more specifically, the Solfeggio tuning forks. My hope is that we can all find the harmonics of our own individual music, and that through this process we will be enabled to live balanced lives.

This is André Brink's story of a life lived in tumultuous times. He describes with searing honesty his conflicting experiences of growing up in a world where innocence was always surrounded by violence and storytelling was a means of reconciling the stark contrasts of his world. His time spent in Paris in the 1960s confirmed in him the desire to become a writer but his opposition to the apartheid establishment resulted in years of harassment by the South African secret police; it also led to extraordinary friendships with leaders of the ANC in exile. A Fork in the Road is André Brink's love song to the country where he was born and where, despite recent tragedies, he still lives today.

A Fork in the Road tells the story of one woman's ethical journey throughout a brief period of her middle-aged years. It chronicles several types of moral dilemmas we encounter when we are faced with various options in our lives. It also reveals some of the consequences of our actions when we choose one path over another. It is honest and direct in its declaration that good and evil coexist in every facet of our lives. It is uplifting and must reading for anyone who has ever questioned why negativity must disrupt our lives by casting shadows in our paths. It teaches us that, despite the existence of evil, there is always the positive choice to do the right thing and to effect positive change in our lives, as well as in the lives of others.

What is your life’s purpose, your reason for being here, and how do you know what it is? Do you have a destiny, and, if so, how was that determined? How do you reach it? Are there choices, and if so, how does one make them? Is there a power which steers you down the right path toward your destiny, tells you which fork in the road to take? What difference in the grand scheme of things will your life make? The author asked himself the same questions, over and over, throughout most of his seventy-seven years, and only recently has he learned the answers. In When Destiny Comes to a Fork in the Road, Demus, the author’s guardian angel, describes the author’s thoughts, words, and actions as he travels down life’s road, seeking to discover his reason for being, his calling, his destiny. Share with him his happiness and sadness, emotions, indecision, uncertainty, discoveries, accomplishments, failures, his experiences, the people he met on his life’s journey and his quest to learn and to fulfill his destiny, and his eventual understanding of the meaning of his life.

An exciting new collection of sublimely simple wisdom from a bestselling author, celebrated athlete, and a true American hero. Three-time MVP and Hall of Famer Yogi Berra hit home runs twice in a row with his two previous books, The Yogi Book and It Ain't Over. Now, his winning streak will continue with this latest work--a collection of appealing, funny, and surprisingly moving essays on life, happiness, and getting through the slumps. Filled with another delightful helping of Yogi's inimitable and unwittingly wise aphorisms, these reflections focus on the valuable lessons he's learned on and off the field. From his early years as an immigrant's son who dropped out of the eighth grade through his triumphant career as a player and manager who played in a record seventy-five World Series games, Yogi illustrates his homespun philosophies with apt analogies to his trove of baseball stories. He expounds on such topics as Patience (Waiting for your pitch); Sacrifice (Laying down a bunt); Trusting Others (Taking direction); and Staying Focused (Keeping your eye on the ball), to show how the rules of life and baseball are uncannily similar. And, in the tradition of Don't Sweat the Small Stuff and All I Really Need to I Know I Learned in Kindergarten, he explains his recipe for fulfillment and happiness with life lessons that are profoundly simple, simply profound--and classic Yogi to the core. Following on the heels of two New York Times bestselling books and filled with memorable photos, this new collection of Yogi wisdom will undoubtedly expand his growing legion of fans. When You Come to a Fork in the Road, Take It! is a wise, humble, touching book that's a guaranteed winner. In short, it's déjà vu all over again. A baseball legend reflects on the following lessons... "A nickel ain't worth a dime any more." "It ain't over til it's over." "You can't think and hit at the same time." "I didn't really say everything I said." "The future ain't what it used to be." . . . and many more.
