✏Beyond Glory Book Summary : Nothing in the annals of sports has aroused more passion than the heavyweight fights in New York in 1936 and 1938 between Joe Louis and Max Schmeling — bouts that symbolized the hopes, hatreds, and fears of a world moving toward total war. Acclaimed journalist David Margolick takes us into the careers of both men — a black American and a Nazi German hero — and depicts the extraordinary buildup to their legendary 1938 rematch. Vividly capturing the outpouring of emotion that the two fighters brought forth, Margolick brilliantly illuminates the cultural and social divisions that they came to represent. From the Trade Paperback edition.

✏Beyond Glory Medal of Honor Heroes in Their Own Words Book Summary : This first oral history of living Medal of Honor winners evokes Flags of Our Fathers with stirring accounts of patriotic valor. This New York Times best-selling account of battlefield courage celebrates the larger-than-life sacrifices of those awarded the nation's highest honor for valor in combat. Exclusive interviews with these twenty-four men—firsthand accounts of battlefield sacrifice from the greatest generation to Vietnam, along with before-and-after stories—form the core of this classic work. The recipients, as portrayed here, represent a cross-section as diverse as America itself—officers and enlisted men; African Americans, Hispanics, and Caucasians; men who went on to become famous (Daniel Inouye, James Stockdale, Bob Kerrey) and others who returned proudly to small towns. Beyond Glory, in the voices of these heroes, is a testament to the courage of the American nation.

Complete with a detailed chronology and guide to further reading, the Companion concludes with a conversation with three poets - Michael Longley, Andrew Motion and Jon Stallworthy - about why and how the war and its poetry continue to resonate with us.

✏Experience Book Summary : With his usual blending of Western and Eastern thought, Don DeGracia considers the ancient question of the nature of our experience. Unlike most accounts, this one begins with the fact of altered states of consciousness. The curtain is pulled back to reveal the infinity of dynamic patterns found under the surface mind: the desires, the unfulfilled urges, longings, and striving. Under these are the mindless urges of life and the cosmos. One and all they are but futile striving to become what they never can be: the infinite. The mask of reality is ripped asunder to show that all existence is but mirage, an endless, futile striving towards a goal that can never be realized. It is always darkest before the sunrise. Similarly, the phantasmagoria of our seeming is ultimately a message of hope. By peering into the infinite depths of the irrationality of appearances, we unlock the door to approach the Ultimate Reality behind all appearances. This is the message of Experience.
