📒Purple Heart ✍ Raymond G. Berube
✏Purple Heart Book Summary : Billy Jordan returns from Viet Nam having spent two years there and in incarceration in a North Vietnamese POW camp, under torture. Back in the US, Billy is unable to adjust and eventually is released from the VA hospital in San Francisco, where he was treated for PTSS. Reverting to alcohol and drugs as a means by which he can deal with his traumas he enters various community-center rehab programs for help. There he comes under the treatment of Shaw York, a psychiatrist who uses hypnosis and subliminal suggestion to tear away the layers of denial which have been constructed by Billy to avoid some very painful memories and a significant relationship that ended in trauma. The story incorporates actual treatment session transcripts to show the process of how Billy is led back from his self-constructed prison and to the acceptance of what actually happened and WHO he really is.
📒Purple Heart ✍ Nefy
✏Purple Heart Book Summary : “And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” - Nietzche This book is 10 years in the making. I wanted to release into the wild, the emotions in me that did not belong with each other, but seemed inseparable just the same. At the core of all my poems is a sentiment waiting to be felt, so I hope you give it a chance to ripple through your core and make home in your soul. These poems encompass everything from my conversations with peace to my walks with surly poets, heavenly games to rotting crops. I hope the poems let you step out of yourself and experience the world through someone else’s emotional lens. And I hope the poem you read today is undeniably everything you ever needed from life. Just for today.
📒Purple Heart ✍ Andrew Fiu
✏Purple Heart Book Summary : An affecting, insightful and warm memoir of growing up Samoan in New Zealand - and of coping with heart disease. Andrew Fiu came to Ponsonby, Auckland as a three-year-old, part of the wave of immigration from Samoa that turned Auckland's inner city suburbs into a vibrant cultural melting pot. At 14 he was misdiagnosed as having flu when in fact he had rheumatic fever, a disease endemic in Pacific Island communities. As a result of the damage to his heart he was rushed to hospital. Since that time Andrew has had five open heart surgeries, a record anywhere. He has spent so much time in hospital that he says he grew up there, experiencing tender and expert care from doctors and nurses but also enduring appalling racism. This memoir is the story of his hospital years, his clashes with his parents' traditional attitudes, the wisdom he learnt from his fellow patients and the medical miracles perfomed on his heart by famous surgeon Alan Kerr. It's the story of growing up a Pacific Islander in Auckland, a reflection on the bad old days when schools made Pacific Island children anglicise their names and hospitals did not have translators, an insight into the inter-generational tensions in Pacific Island migrant families and also a testimony to deep friendship, boundless love and bucketloads of humour. Written in a warm, personable and humorous style, this book is part of the cultural sea-change happening in New Zealand: first the play Niu Sila, then Bro'Town, No. 2 and Sione's Wedding and now the first memoir from a 40-something Samoan, written with grace, love and insight. The Weekend Herald's Canvas magazine wrote: 'Written with verge and humour, Purple Heart is a revelation.' The New Zealand Listener, singled it out as one of the year's best memoirs, praising its humour, light touch, and lack of self-pity.

📒Legacy Of Honor ✍ Alvin Townley
✏Legacy of Honor Book Summary : Over the past century, America's Eagle Scouts have earned a reputation for service, virtue, and leadership that is recognized throughout the world. But few people realize the full extent to which Eagle Scouts have made a mark on American history. They have served as astronauts, soldiers, politicians, and businessmen, but they have also been the fathers, brothers, Scoutmasters, coaches, and other role models who have played an integral part in American life. Alvin Townley set out across the country to hear the stories of these Eagle Scouts. He spoke with individuals from every region, of every age and every background, some of whom have risen to fame as public figures while others have left a lasting impact outside of the spotlight. The Eagle Scouts who share their experiences include Bill Gates, Sr., Bill Bradley, J. W. Marriott, Jr., Ross Perot, Michael Bloomberg, Richard Lugar, Michael Dukakis, Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, coach Chan Gailey, and Capt. Jim Lovell of Apollo 13. The book also explores the virtues of a Tuskegee Airman, a Vietnam War POW, a September 11 NYPD hero, a crew of Hurricane Katrina relief workers, and a host of others from every walk of life. During his journey, Alvin discovered stories of character, courage, and inspiration that belong not only to Eagle Scouts but to all Americans. These stories form the heart of Legacy of Honor and offer us a chance to appreciate the profound impact that Eagle Scouts have had on American history and the lasting role they will play in our country's future.
