In this remarkable memoir, Anna Goldsworthy recalls her first steps toward a life in music, from childhood piano lessons with a local jazz muso to international success as a concert pianist. As she discovers passion and ambition and confronts doubt and disappointment, she learns about much more than tone and technique. This is a story of the getting of wisdom, tender and bittersweet. With wit and affection, Goldsworthy captures the hopes and uncertainties of youth, the fear and exhilaration of performing, and the complex bonds between teacher and student. An unforgettable cast of characters joins her: her family; her friends and rivals; and her teacher, Mrs Sivan, who inspires and challenges her in equal measure, and who transforms what seems an impossible dream into something real and sustaining. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Anna Goldsworthy. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/boli/002440/bk_boli_002440_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The Pro: Lessons from My Father About Golf and ...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Butch Harmon is the world´s number one golf coach. He taught Tiger Woods through one of the greatest stretches of victories in golf history (and, perhaps even more conspicuously, did not teach Tiger Woods following his unprecedented run), as well as superstars like Greg Norman, Adam Scott, Fred Couples, Darren Clarke, Natalie Gulbis, and Davis Love III. How did he become such a legendary teacher and mentor? The answer is simple: He learned from watching his father. The Harmons are the First Family of golf, and Claude Harmon, Sr., was the greatest of them all. His skill as a player, an innovator, a teacher, a devoted father, a loyal friend, and a peer of giants such as Ben Hogan has gone largely unappreciated by all but those who knew him best. In this book by his son, he finally gets his due. In The Pro, Butch Harmon paints a compelling portrait of an era in sports before the emergence of big media and bigger money, and shows how the lessons he learned about life and golf at his father´s knee made him the man he is today. The Pro is both a family and a golf memoir, as well as an inside look at what it takes to teach the Tigers of the world. It describes how Butch and his brothers, who are also teachers, transfer their father´s unique wit, wisdom, and philosophy to the next generation of golfers. Sometimes their advice relates to the game, sometimes they simply offer words of encouragement and motivation, sometimes they make pointed criticisms intended to shock their students into focus, and sometimes they try to impart simple advice about ´´walking around through life´´. The Harmon brothers are teachers who share a special quality: All of their lessons are passed down from their father. This is a portrait of one extraordinary family and the game that will carry their legacy for years to come. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Bishins.

€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A funny and intimate look at fatherhood from the actor and writer/director of The Boss and Tammy that combines stories about his own larger-than-life dad and how his experiences raising two daughters with his wife, Melissa McCarthy, are shaped by his own childhood. Though he´s best known for his appearances in the movie Enough Said, as well as his hilarious role as Air Marshall Jon in Bridesmaids, Ben Falcone isn´t a big-shot movie star director at home. There, he´s just Dad. In this winning collection of stories, Ben shares his funny and poignant adventures as the husband of Melissa McCarthy and the father of their two young daughters. He also shares tales from his own childhood in Southern Illinois and life with his father - an outspoken, brilliant, but unconventional man with a big heart and a somewhat casual approach to employment named Steve Falcone. Ben is just an ordinary dad who has his share of fights with other parents blocking his view with their expensive electronic devices at school performances. Navigating the complicated role of being the only male in a house full of women, he finds himself growing more and more concerned as he sounds more and more like his dad. While Steve Falcone may not have been the briefcase and gray flannel suit type, he taught Ben priceless lessons about what matters most in life. A supportive, creative, and downright funny dad, Steve made sure his sons´ lives were never dull - a sense of adventure that carries through this warm, sometimes hilarious, and poignant memoir. Foreword read by Melissa McCarthy and featuring the voices of Stephen, Margaret, and Flynn Falcone. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ben Falcone, Melissa McCarthy, Stephen Falcone, Margaret Falcone, Flynn Falcone. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/harp/006006/bk_harp_006006_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Margaret Roach has been harvesting 30 years of backyard parables - deceptively simple, instructive stories from a life spent digging ever deeper - and has distilled them in this memoir along with her best tips for garden making, discouraging all manner of animal and insect opponents, at-home pickling, and more. After ruminating on the bigger picture in her memoir And I Shall Have Some Peace There, Margaret Roach has returned to the garden, insisting as ever that we must garden with both our head and heart, or as she expresses it, with ´´horticultural how-to and woo-woo.´´ InThe Backyard Parables, Roach uses her fundamental understanding of the natural world, philosophy, and life to explore the ways that gardening saved and instructed her, and meditates on the science and spirituality of nature, reminding her listeners and herself to keep on digging. 1.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This program is read by Cara Mentzel, with a foreword from her big sister, Idina Menzel. Also included is a bonus interview and an exclusive duet of the sisters performing the song ´´Never Never Land´´. Voice Lessons is the story of one younger sister growing up in the shadow of a larger-than-life older sister - looking up to her, wondering how they were alike and how they were different, and ultimately learning how to live her own life and speak in her own voice on her own terms. As Cara Mentzel studied, explored, married, gave birth (twice), and eventually became an elementary school teacher, she watched her sister, Idina Menzel, from the wings and gives listeners a front row seat to the opening nights of Rent and Wicked, a seat at the Tonys, and a place on the red carpet when her sister taught millions more, as the voice of Queen Elsa in the animated musical Frozen, to ´´Let It Go´´. Voice Lessons is the story of sisters - sisters with pigtails, sisters with boyfriends and broken hearts, sisters as mothers and aunts, sisters as teachers and ice queens, sisters as allies and confidantes. As Cara puts it, ´´My big sister is Tony Award-winning, gravity-defying, ´Let It Go´-singing Idina Menzel, who has received top billing on Broadway marquees, who has performed for Barbra Streisand and President Obama, at the Super Bowl and at the Academy Awards. The world knows her as Idina Menzel, but I call her Dee.´´ Voice Lessons is their story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cara Mentzel, Idina Menzel - foreword.
