The Orange Trees of Baghdad : In Search of My Lost Family

By Nadir,Leilah

Toronto: Key Porter Books, 2007 Born to an Iraqi-Christian father and a British mother, and raised in Britain and Canada, Leilah Nadir has never set foot on Iraqi soil. Distanced from her Iraqi roots through immigration and now cut off by war, the closest link she has to the nation is through her father, who left Baghdad in the 1960s when he was sixteen to pursue his studies in England. His Iraq is of mythical origins; his beginnings are in a garden at the family home that now lies vacant. Through her father’s memories, Leilah recounts her family’s lost story, from Iraq at the turn of the twentieth century during the British occupation, to the Iraq-Iran War and the Gulf War. Through her cousins still living in Baghdad, she experiences the thunderous explosions of the present-day conflict, and Leilah’s friend, award-winning photographer Farah Nosh, brings home news of Leilah’s family after her visits to Iraq, as well as stunning photos of civilians and their often tragic stories. The Orange Trees of Baghdad is at once harrowing, touching and painfully human. 1st Canadian Edition.. Hardcover. As New/As New. Illus. by Farah Nosh.

Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder

By Huffington - Stassinopoulou, Arianna

New York: Harmony Books, 2014 Arianna Huffington's personal wake-up call came in the form of a broken cheekbone and a nasty gash over her eye--the result of a fall brought on by exhaustion and lack of sleep. As the cofounder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group--one of the fastest growing media companies in the world--celebrated as one of the world's most influential women, and gracing the covers of magazines, she was, by any traditional measure, extraordinarily successful. Yet as she found herself going from brain MRI to CAT scan to echocardiogram, to find out if there was any underlying medical problem beyond exhaustion, she wondered is this really what success feels like? As more and more people are coming to realize, there is far more to living a truly successful life than just earning a bigger salary and capturing a corner office. Our relentless pursuit of the two traditional metrics of success--money and power--has led to an epidemic of burnout and stress-related illnesses, and an erosion in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers. In being connected to the world 24/7, we're losing our connection to what truly matters. Our current definition of success is, as Thrive shows, literally killing us. We need a new way forward.In this deeply personal book, Arianna talks candidly about her own challenges with managing time and prioritizing the demands of a career and raising two daughters--of juggling business deadlines and family crises, a harried dance that led to her collapse and to her "aha moment." Drawing on the latest groundbreaking research and scientific findings in the fields of psychology, sports, sleep, and physiology that show the profound and transformative effects of meditation, mindfulness, unplugging, and giving, Arianna shows us the way to a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplace, and our lives. 342p. notes index..

Instant Mom

By Vardalos, Nia

New York: HarperOne, 2013 "On a rainy morning in early 2003, Nia Vardalos found out that she had been nominated for an Oscar for writing the sceenplay for My Big, Fat Greek Wedding . But her mind was not on champagne and celebratory cheer. Instead, she was alone, en route to a fertility clinic, trying yet again for another chance at motherhood. In her attempts to make a baby, Vardalos tried everything from drinking daily jugs of green-mud-tea to voodoo-doll-like acupuncture, to working with two surrogates. All the while she was trying to advance her film career, writing films while dodging questions from family, friends, and Hollywood reporters who continually asked Where s the baby? She decided to try adoption and discovered Foster Family Agencies, meeting social workers and eventually getting paired up with a three year old girl with blonde streaks in her hair who she knew, instantly, was her daughter. With her signature wit and candor, in Instant Mom Vardalos opens up about what came next - the heartaches and smiles, tears and laughter that all make up what it means to be a parent. Filled with stories about Vardalos life in the Hollywood scene - she counts Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and Sean Hayes as friends - and her unique take on the tough but often hilarious moments that make up motherhood, Instant Mom is about how stubborn optimism can work in one's favor, and how it was this very optimism that brought Nia to her daughter against all of the odds.. 1st US Edition..
