In Going Solo, the world's favourite storyteller, Roald Dahl, tells of life as a fighter pilot in Africa. 'They did not think for one moment that they would find anything but a burnt-out fuselage and a charred skeleton, and they were astounded when they came upon my still-breathing body lying in the sand nearby.' In 1938 Roald Dahl was fresh out of school and bound for his first job in Africa, hoping to find adventure far from home. However, he got far more excitement than he bargained for when the outbreak of the Second World War led him to join the RAF. His account of his experiences in Africa, crashing a plane in the Western Desert, rescue and recovery from his horrific injuries in Alexandria, flying a Hurricane as Greece fell to the Germans, and many other daring deeds, recreates a world as bizarre and unnerving as any he wrote about in his fiction. 'Very nearly as grotesque as his fiction. The same compulsive blend of wide-eyed innocence and fascination with danger and horror' Evening Standard 'A non-stop demonstration of expert raconteurship' The New York Times Book Review Roald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today.

As parents face the difficult reality of a broken home, a sense of being completely overwhelmed can shut down the perspective they need to find restoration. Parents need to know that they can choose to define this season of their lives, instead of becoming defined by circumstances. They can deliberately look toward God and come to a deeper understanding of His true nature, power, and intimate care. As this former Christian music industry executive shares his story of divorce, his seven years as a single father, and his transition to a second marriage and a blended family, he also offers readers some hard-learned lessons and insights on being an effective, empathetic, and empowered single parent, answering crucial questions such as: How do I find peace when everything around me is chaos? How do I manage meeting needs when I have nothing to give? How and where do I begin again? The author addresses the fears and exhaustion of single parenting, while revealing the keys to gaining strength and courage for each day. He also shares how he found his “solo” relationship with his heavenly Father through his “solo” parenting season. Readers will learn five helpful habits and practical healing principles they can immediately apply in this season of life.

A revelatory examination of the most significant demographic shift since the Baby Boom—the sharp increase in the number of people who live alone—that offers surprising insights on the benefits of this epochal change In 1950, only 22 percent of American adults were single. Today, more than 50 percent of American adults are single, and 31 million—roughly one out of every seven adults—live alone. People who live alone make up 28 percent of all U.S. households, which makes them more common than any other domestic unit, including the nuclear family. In GOING SOLO, renowned sociologist and author Eric Klinenberg proves that these numbers are more than just a passing trend. They are, in fact, evidence of the biggest demographic shift since the Baby Boom: we are learning to go solo, and crafting new ways of living in the process. Klinenberg explores the dramatic rise of solo living, and examines the seismic impact it’s having on our culture, business, and politics. Though conventional wisdom tells us that living by oneself leads to loneliness and isolation, Klinenberg shows that most solo dwellers are deeply engaged in social and civic life. In fact, compared with their married counterparts, they are more likely to eat out and exercise, go to art and music classes, attend public events and lectures, and volunteer. There’s even evidence that people who live alone enjoy better mental health than unmarried people who live with others and have more environmentally sustainable lifestyles than families, since they favor urban apartments over large suburban homes. Drawing on over three hundred in-depth interviews with men and women of all ages and every class, Klinenberg reaches a startling conclusion: in a world of ubiquitous media and hyperconnectivity, this way of life can help us discover ourselves and appreciate the pleasure of good company. With eye-opening statistics, original data, and vivid portraits of people who go solo, Klinenberg upends conventional wisdom to deliver the definitive take on how the rise of living alone is transforming the American experience. GOING SOLO is a powerful and necessary assessment of an unprecedented social change.

Resenting him was natural; wanting him, a revelation. There’s nothing Shasta Kovich won’t do to save her recording contract after blowing her voice during The Velvet Bitches’ first major concert tour. But asking her to put up with Blake Adams? That’s pushing it. Big surprise they’d clash. She came up the old-fashioned way; she worked her ass off. Blake, on the other hand, has led a charmed life, the product of the best musical education money can buy. It’s pretty hard not to resent him, especially with that elitist attitude of his. It can’t get any worse than that, right? Wrong. During one of their rocky sessions together Adams strays upon a secret she’s hidden from everyone, including her bandmates. Suddenly, the guy tasked with saving her career knows something that could potentially ruin her musical aspirations for good. Can she trust him?

Table of Contents Going Solo Travel Safety Tips for Women Introduction Getting Prepared to Travel Traveling Internationally When to Call Your Embassy for Help? Potential Trouble Situations Dress Code What to Have in Your Purse? Woman Safety App Money Money Money While on a Journey In an Unknown Neighborhood Parleying in the Local Lingo Harassment Harassed by Flirts Silence is Golden Meeting New Acquaintances Driving Rules Travel Plans Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction Going Solo… Thanks to the world shrinking due to more advanced transport facilities, more and more women are taking the first step of traveling to other countries and exploring the new cultures, and horizons open to them. It is the first step outside your own safe and secure circle, which is rather daunting. So for most of us Going solo is not something which people normally do because let me tell you frankly, I have noticed that a number of my women friends, colleagues and acquaintances consider any sort of traveled to be a bore. Who really wants to undergo the hassle of being a woman all lonesome on her own traveling to a strange country or city? Traveling all alone in your own country or abroad, – you must be joking, DJ. This attitude was rather surprising, because I took travelling alone to be a part and parcel of my own lifestyle, while growing up and I definitely did not have any hassle in picking up my small travelling bag and catching my train, all alone on a long journey, even when I was 15. But then I was just going from one known destination to another known destination. So I did not bother much about the safety aspects, then, because I knew both destinations well. So for me, at that time, Going solo was the rule, and not an exception. But things changed later, while working. It was a different matter altogether. I never knew when the call would come from the top for me to get myself to such and such place by such and such time to attend such and such a meeting or meet XYZ. At that time, I always had a bag packed in a corner because I never knew when I had to drop everything and fly down to all corners of the compass on official duty. Sometimes I had my team of colleagues and juniors with me. Sometimes I was needed to go alone. And half of them just hated the idea of traveling because they were not used to it. Even when tickets, hotel stay, transport and all other facilities were laid out for them, they just did not want to go and see a brand-new place and experience a brand-new culture. How much they have missed out of life. This book is for all those adventurous souls who want to go out somewhere and experience new experiences, but there always daunted by the thought that it is not safe for women to travel anywhere in their own country or outside. And definitely not traveling solo in this world full of crime, and xenophobia. This book is to explode some of those myths. This book is also going to give you lots of useful information about safety tips for women traveling alone, based on my experiences, as well as the experiences of my other peripatetic friends. Also, there are some amusing anecdotes and episodes recounted to me by my well-traveled father, which may not exactly touch on safety, but can touch on some of the experiences that you may face when visiting a new country! So let the adventure begin.

Author and scientist Detlev is someone who has broken free from the shackles of German tradition. One day, he grabbed his kayak and simply paddled off into the sunset: to the Arctic Circle, to be precise, leaving his old life behind. The original idea of the kayaking expedition was to do the entire Baltic Sea and live solely off the fat of the land like a ‘budding Viking’ – pure minimalism. He dubbed the project Shin-ken Sho-bu as a nod to his time in Japan: “Doing things with deadly seriousness”, which, as it turned out, couldn’t have been more apt: halfway through the trip, a cross-eyed motorboat captain ended up crushing him against the wall in a Swedish lock. The resulting bone splinters and cervical spine syndrome kept him side-lined for a year before he could eventually resume the expedition. Detlev had to rethink his original plan. After all, dreams meet reality out at sea and there is an adventure lurking around every corner! Loneliness, hunger, self-doubt and the monotony of paddling were his constant companions on the ninety-one-day voyage, not to mention the pain of sitting for hours on end, the torments of the unpredictable Baltic Sea, the icy Northern European weather and his frequent lack of energy, even for the cosy nightly campfire. Especially in our fast-moving, jaded times, Detlev’s ironic, self-critical and frank account and the descriptions of his bare-knuckle experiences make for a riveting read – not only for paddlers but also anyone who is fed up with life and the daily grind, still has dreams and might like to see them materialise one day. Detlev has been on a number of unusual expeditions since and coined his ‘RoNindoc’ philosophy: ‘Life is short, one day it’s gone!’ www.detlev-henschel.com

This is the first book for solo parents whose kids have a wide variety of disabilities (physical, neurodevelopmental, and psychiatric), and who are widowed, separated, divorced, single by choice, adoptive or foster parents, or military spouses with deployed partners. In Going Solo, Laura Marshak skillfully weaves together extensive interviews and survey results of solo mothers and fathers (and grandparents, too) with reliable coping strategies gleaned from 25 years as a practicing psychologist and specialist in disability adjustment.

Digital media have lowered the barriers for producing and distributing content. The active user, reader, viewer is born and receives proper attention. One other category however, with potentially a much higher impact, is mostly overlooked. These are the embedded publishers: the commercial entities, societal organisations and governmental bodies that do not have publishing as their main goal but nevertheless start controlling their communications with in-house produced, embedded information outlets.This publication explores the new phenomenon on the basis of a number of case studies in Belgium and the Netherlands, analyses the consequences for the information landscape and offers a range of response scenarios for the traditional media.

Going Solo is the empowering and uplifting story of one woman's choice to become a single mother. 'I hope this story gives hope to anyone who wants children and to anyone who finds themselves single. Not to follow this path necessarily, but to remember that there are always many options.' Aged thirty-seven, single and having experienced two miscarriages, Genevieve Roberts found out that her fertility levels were dwlindling. On hearing this news, she made the courageous decision to embark on motherhood solo and eventually became pregnant using a sperm donor. Genevieve describes her initial fear of the prospect of birth without a partner, and the trepidation she felt towards all the responsibility she has taken on. She recounts all the milestones of pregnancy and motherhood that most women share with their partner -- going to NCT classes alone, taking part in birthing workshops with her sister-in-law, her amazement that two people in her pregnancy yoga class are following the same path as her. But ultimately what triumphs is Genevieve's excitement at meeting her daughter. She recalls the first months of parenthood, navigating the love, worry and tiredness of life with a newborn without a partner. She describes the beautiful simplicity of the relationship between herself and her daughter, as she gets to know Astrid without having to consider a partner. Going Solo is for anyone whose life has taken an unexpected twist; for people who are interested in modern families and for those who want to take control of their life and follow their dreams of parenthood. It celebrates the fulfilment that comes from following what makes you happy, and reminds us that beauty may be found when life offers a surprise or a deviation from convention.
