“What I propose to do in this book is to take you on a guided exploration of the Catholic world, but not in the manner of a docent, for I am not interested in showing you the artifacts of Catholicism as though they were dusty objets d’art in a museum of culture. I want to function rather as a mystagogue, conducting you ever deeper into the mystery of the incarnation in the hopes that you might be transformed by its power.” –Father Robert Barron What is the Catholicism? A 2,000 living tradition? A worldview? A way of life? A relationship? A mystery? In Catholicism Father Robert Barron examines all these questions and more, seeking to capture the body, heart and mind of the Catholic faith. Starting from the essential foundation of Jesus Christ’s incarnation, life, and teaching, Father Barron moves through the defining elements of Catholicism – from sacraments, worship, and prayer, to Mary, the Apostles, and Saints, to grace, salvation, heaven, and hell – using his distinct and dynamic grasp of art, literature, architecture, personal stories, Scripture, theology, philosophy, and history to present the Church to the world. Paired with his documentary film series of the same title, Catholicism is an intimate journey, capturing “The Catholic Thing” in all its depth and beauty. Eclectic, unique, and inspiring, Father Barron brings the faith to life for a new generation, in a style that is both faithful to timeless truths, while simultaneously speaking in the language of contemporary life. This enhanced eBook includes a video introduction from the author as well as sixteen short videos from Father Barron’s landmark documentary series Catholicism, totaling more than forty minutes of material. Color photos throughout.

Foreword: The early years of Larry Henares By Kim Jacinto-Henares, daughter-in-law He was conceived in the Los Banos, Laguna, where his parents were professors in the UP College of Agriculture. An instructor called Eligio Tavanlar, later a UNESCO agricultural engineer, knew of the pregnancy before his mother even did because he was experimenting on her urine with a new-fangled rabbit test. He was born after the usual incubation period in the Philippine General Hospital on Taft Avenue, Manila, the only modern hospital at the time, where Ninoy Aquino, Raul Manglapus and his contemporaries also saw the first light of day. He was born the first of the three children of Hilarion Gensole Henares, and Concepcion Garcia Maramba, on April 10, 1924, under the sign of Aries in the Year of the Rat. He was baptized Hilarion Daniel Mateo Francisco Maramba Henares Jr., Hilarion after his father who was born on the feast of St. Hilarion, Daniel after his maternal grandfather who influenced his life in the early years, Mateo after his paternal grandfather who died long before he was born, Francisco after someone we do not know, Maramba his mother's family name, Henares his father's family name, and Junior a translation of the Spanish word Hijo. Actually in his baptismal certificate, in the way Spanish names were written, his name was written Hilarion Daniel Mateo Francisco Henares y Maramba, Hijo. Many of his enemies, and many of his friends, not realizing that his name is already much too long, keep adding something else after Hijo, like hijo de cabron, or something even worse. He was nicknamed Larie, but for a long time, people outside the family spelled it Larry. Thus it became so. As the eldest grandchild, Larry had the privilege of renaming all his uncles. Uncle Tomasin (Tomas Maramba) became Unca Pasin. Uncle Turong (Arturo) became Unca Tong. Uncle Canoy (Nicanor) became Unca Anoy. His eldest uncle with whom he lived in the early years became Ama or alternatively Unca Feling (Felix). His aunties had pronounceable names: Auntie Meling (Emilia), Auntie Pacing (Paz), Auntie Loleng (Lolita). He had a knack to inventing names for things, like conding-candang for condensed milk, a name that persists to this day. Also his toy, autotackodak for a set that included a auto, truck, and kodak. Being the eldest grandchild and the favorite, he was obliged to live in many homes. First there was the ancestral home of his maternal grandfather Laki Daniel in barrio Minien, Sta. Barbara, Pangasinan. Here Larry was stunned to see his uncle Feling dragging a screaming Auntie Pacing around the sala of the house, in what was later explained as a family horseplay. Then there is the Bureau of Agriculture station near the La Carlota Sugar Central of the Elizaldes, La Castellana, in Occidental Negros where he lived with his uncle Feling and his family during his Grade One. Here in the 3-foot clearance under the house, he ate what he thought were Grape Nuts which turned out to be rat poison. He survived. Then he and his cousin Fedi Maramba transferred to Barrio Tinongan, Isabela, Occidental Negros, where he studied Second Grade, and where his father was Chief Engineer of the Montilla-owned Isabela Sugar Company. There was a company movie house showing silent movies at a huge back lot behind the company houses. And there he saw Charlie Chaplin, John Barrymore and especially Douglas Fairbanks (Thief of Bagdad, The Sheik, Three Musketeers). One memorable evening the movie house burned down, and Larry watched fascinated from the back stairs of the kitchen. By the Third Grade. Larry and his cousin Fedi transferred to his Laki Daniel's farm in Manaoag, Pagasinan. This was called Hacienda Nuning (800 hectares), and was once owned by Margarita "Nuning" Cuyugan y Lichauco de Oppen, the richest auntie of Larry's future wife Cecilia. Her father Don Carlos Cuyugan got it from a Frenchman named Rous in payment of debt. (MORE INSIDE)

With more than a hundred photos, videos, recorded phone conversations, letters, and speeches, this enhanced eBook edition of Indomitable Will brings to life the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson like never before. Nearly fifty years after being sworn in as president of the United States in the wake of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Lyndon Baines Johnson remains a largely misunderstood figure. His force of personal­ity, mastery of power and the political process, and boundless appetite for social reform made him one of the towering figures of his time. But he was one of the most protean and paradoxical of presidents as well. Because of his flawed nature and inherent contradic­tions, some claimed there were as many LBJs as there were people who knew him. Intent on fulfilling the promise of America, Johnson launched a revolution in civil rights, federal aid to education, and health care for the elderly and indigent, and expanded immigration and environ­mental protection. A flurry of landmark laws—he would sign an unparalleled 207 during his five years in office, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Voting Rights Act of 1965, Elementary and Second­ary Education Act, Head Start, and Medicare—are testaments to the triumph of his will. His War on Poverty alone brought the U.S. poverty rate down from 20 percent to 12 percent, the biggest one-time drop in American history. As president, he was known for getting things done. At the same time, Johnson’s presidency—and the fulfillment of its own promise—was blighted by his escalation of an ill-fated war in Vietnam that tore at the fabric of America and saw the loss of 36,000 U.S. troops by the end of his term. Presidential historian Mark K. Updegrove offers an intimate portrait of the endlessly fas­cinating LBJ, his extraordinarily eventful presi­dency, and the turbulent times in which he served. We see Johnson in his many guises and dimen­sions: the virtuoso deal-maker using every inch of his six-foot-three-inch frame to intimidate his subjects, the relentless reformer willing to lose southern Democrats from his party for a generation in his pursuit of civil rights for all Americans, and the embattled commander in chief agonizing over the fate of his “boys” in Vietnam—including his two sons-in-law—yet steadfast in his determination to thwart Communist aggression through war, or an honorable peace. Through original interviews and personal accounts from White House aides and Cabinet members, political allies and foes, and friends and family—from Robert McNamara to Barry Goldwa­ter, Lady Bird Johnson to Jacqueline Kennedy—as well as through Johnson’s own candid reflections and historic White House telephone conversa­tions, Indomitable Will reveals LBJ as never before. “ For it is through firsthand narrative more than anything,” writes Updegrove, “that Lyndon John­son—who teemed with vitality in his sixty-four years and remains enigmatic nearly four decades after his passing—comes to life.”

National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 Award winner Charles Yu delivers his debut novel, a razor-sharp, ridiculously funny, and utterly touching story of a son searching for his father . . . through quantum space–time. Minor Universe 31 is a vast story-space on the outskirts of fiction, where paradox fluctuates like the stock market, lonely sexbots beckon failed protagonists, and time travel is serious business. Every day, people get into time machines and try to do the one thing they should never do: change the past. That’s where Charles Yu, time travel technician—part counselor, part gadget repair man—steps in. He helps save people from themselves. Literally. When he’s not taking client calls or consoling his boss, Phil, who could really use an upgrade, Yu visits his mother (stuck in a one-hour cycle of time, she makes dinner over and over and over) and searches for his father, who invented time travel and then vanished. Accompanied by TAMMY, an operating system with low self-esteem, and Ed, a nonexistent but ontologically valid dog, Yu sets out, and back, and beyond, in order to find the one day where he and his father can meet in memory. He learns that the key may be found in a book he got from his future self. It’s called How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe, and he’s the author. And somewhere inside it is the information that could help him—in fact it may even save his life. Wildly new and adventurous, Yu’s debut is certain to send shock waves of wonder through literary space–time.

Throughout the star-studded narrative, Feinstein unfolds the moving chronicle of his own life with the Gershwins, describing his vision for their enduring presence today. No other writer could give us such an authoritative inside perspective on these titans of American culture—and no other writer could include such a soulful collection of music as Feinstein’s original recordings of the twelve songs.

This new enhanced edition of Robert B. Reich’s Beyond Outrage features five entertaining and informative videos, over 20 illustrations by the author, and updated material. America’s economy and democracy are working for the benefit of an ever-fewer privileged and powerful people. But rather than just complain about it or give up on the system, we must join together and make it work for all of us. In this timely book, Robert B. Reich argues that nothing good happens in Washington unless citizens are energized and organized to make sure Washington acts in the public good. The first step is to see the big picture. Beyond Outrage connects the dots, showing why the increasing share of income and wealth going to the top has hobbled jobs and growth for everyone else, undermining our democracy; caused Americans to become increasingly cynical about public life; and turned many Americans against one another. He also explains why the proposals of the “regressive right” are dead wrong and provides a clear roadmap of what must be done instead. Here’s a plan for action for everyone who cares about the future of America.

This enhanced eBook edition of Blue Nights includes three short films directed by Griffin Dunne and starring Joan Didion. Each film blends Didion's incisive prose with images and mementos from her daughter's life. From one of our most powerful writers, Blue Nights is a work of stunning frankness about losing a daughter. Richly textured with bits of her own childhood and married life with her husband, John Gregory Dunne, and daughter, Quintana Roo, this new book by Joan Didion examines her thoughts, fears, and doubts regarding having children, illness, and growing old. Blue Nights opens on July 26, 2010, as Didion thinks back to Quintana’s wedding in New York seven years before. Today would be her wedding anniversary. This fact triggers vivid snapshots of Quintana’s childhood—in Malibu, in Brentwood, at school in Holmby Hills. Reflecting on her daughter but also on her role as a parent, Didion asks the candid questions any parent might about how she feels she failed either because cues were not taken or perhaps displaced. “How could I have missed what was clearly there to be seen?” Finally, perhaps we all remain unknown to each other. Seamlessly woven in are incidents Didion sees as underscoring her own age, something she finds hard to acknowledge, much less accept. Blue Nights—the long, light evening hours that signal the summer solstice, “the opposite of the dying of the brightness, but also its warning”—like The Year of Magical Thinking before it, is an iconic book of incisive and electric honesty, haunting and profoundly moving.
