This is an insightful and enlightening look at the life and works of the internationally renowned English garden designer. Rosemary Verey was the last of the great English garden legends. Although she embraced gardening late in life, she quickly achieved international renown. She was the acknowledged apostle of the English style, the must have adviser to the rich and famous - including Prince Charles and Elton John - and a wildly popular lecturer. She was a natural teacher who encouraged her fans to believe that they were fully capable of creating beautiful gardens while validating their quest for a native vernacular, She also re-introduced the English to their own gardening traditions. A demanding taskmaster and a relentless perfectionist, Rosemary Verey, in her life as in her work, was the very personification of the English garden style.

A former Augusta National caddie recounts the invaluable life lessons he learned from the late Freddie Bennett, the fabled club´s legendary caddie master. Though he was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, home of fabled Augusta National and The Masters, as a child Tripp Bowden was too young and too removed from the game of golf to realize what Augusta National really was, what it meant to his town and the world and the sport; its history, nostalgia, prestige and secrecy. All the ten year old Bowden knew about golf was that it was a stupid game that took up too much of his father´s time, and that he´d much rather kick around a soccer ball or stay home and read a book. But all that changed once Bowden´s father, a renowned local doctor, introduced him to one of his patients, Freddie Bennett, the legendary Augusta National caddie master. Though Bowden was a white child of considerable privilege and Bennett was an older black gentleman of more modest means, the two formed an unusual bond. It was Bennett who introduced Bowden to the game of golf, a sport that would one day earn him a Division 1 golf scholarship and lead him to the final stage of a British Open qualifier. But it was the lessons Bennett taught the young Bowden off the course that had their profoundest impact on his life. Through Freddie and his particular brand of homespun wisdom, the author learned invaluable lessons about personal responsibility, hard work, and respect for others regardless of age, race or religion. He also learned that there´s much more to life than just playing golf. Like the best sellers Tuesdays with Morrie and Seasons of Life before it, Freddie & Me is a heartwarming tale of two unlikely friends and their uncommon bond forged through sport. 1.

From Grammy-winning musical icon and legendary bassist Victor L. Wooten comes an inspiring parable of music, life, and the difference between playing all the right notes...and feeling them. The Music Lesson is the story of a struggling young musician who wanted music to be his life, and who wanted his life to be great. Then, from nowhere it seemed, a teacher arrived. Part musical genius, part philosopher, part eccentric wise man, the teacher would guide the young musician on a spiritual journey, and teach him that the gifts we get from music mirror those from life, and every movement, phrase, and chord has its own meaning...All you have to do is find the song inside. ´´The best book on music (and its connection to the mystic laws of life) that I´ve ever read. I learned so much on every level.´´-Multiple Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Michael Brecker
