Harry’s Last Stand: How the world my generation built is falling down, and what we can do to save it

by Harry Leslie Smith

â??As one of the last remaining survivors of the Great Depression and the Second World War, I will not go gently into that good night. I want to tell you what the world looks like through my eyes, so that you can help change itâ?¦’

In November 2013, 91-year-old Yorkshireman, RAF veteran and ex-carpet salesman Harry Leslie Smith’s Guardian article – â??This year, I will wear a poppy for the last time’ – was shared over 80,000 times on Facebook and started a huge debate about the state of society.

Now he brings his unique perspective to bear on NHS cutbacks, benefits policy, political corruption, food poverty, the cost of education – and much more. From the deprivation of 1930s Barnsley and the terror of war to the creation of our welfare state, Harry has experienced how a great civilisation can rise from the rubble. But at the end of his life, he fears how easily it is being eroded.

Harry’s Last Stand is a lyrical, searing modern invective that shows what the past can teach us, and how the future is ours for the taking.

Love Among the Ruins: A memoir of life and love in Hamburg, 1945

by Harry Leslie Smith

At 22, the war is over for RAF serviceman Harry Leslie Smith – the now 92-year-old activist and author of the acclaimed Harry’s Last Stand – but the battle for love and hope rages on.

Stationed in occupied Hamburg, a city physically and emotionally ripped apart by Allied bombing, and determined to escape the grinding poverty of his Yorkshire youth, Harry unexpectedly finds a reason to stay: a young German woman by the name of Friede.

As their love develops, they must face both German suspicion and British disapproval of relations with â??the enemy’.

Harry’s ardent, straight-from-the-heart memoir brings to life a city reduced to rubble, populated with refugees, black marketeers, corrupt businessmen and cynical soldiers. It’s a unique snapshot of a terrible period in Europe’s history, and a passionate love letter to a city, to a woman, and to life itself.

Radio Blows

by Gary Garver

Gary Garver is a radio veteran of over 25 years, 18 of which were spent working at 97.1 KLSX in Los Angeles as a rock disc jockey, producer, and talk show host. Gary worked with the Howard Stern show for 16 years and spent over ten years as Howard Stern’s Celebrity reporter in Hollywood. Garver’s popular talk show, “The Single Life” aired on KLSX for five years.
After he left KLSX, Garver ventured out to do a new kind of show, where he could express himself freely, without the backlash of the radio establishment. Gary’s talk show, “Controlled Chaos’ airs on KCAA 1050AM-106.5FM and 102.3FM, along with his podcast on iHeart Radio
Garver’s talk show is hip, cool and unpredictable. “Controlled Chaos” has a unique, truthful take on life and the world today, which is innovative and sure to make you laugh. He invites the famous and infamous on the show, and you never know who will be there or what will happen.
Gary likes to think of his show as the new wave of terrestrial radio. Garver states, “Radio has been killed by the corporate suits that have run the radio industry into the ground in the last decade with the same personnel and same song playlists. â??Controlled Chaos’ will be the resurrection of radio and the wave of the future for all broadcasters, who will be able to feel free of the media machine and speak their minds.”
Gary has now written a tell-all book about how the radio business works from the inner workings of the Howard Stern show to the corporate bullshit that has ruined the radio business. ‘Radio Blows’ is a must read for anyone who is in the entertainment business or who aspires to be.
As Garver likes to say, ‘It’s the truth, the whole and nothing but the truth, so help me God.’

Summer of the Phoenix: A True Story of Nature, Personal Transformation, and Modern-day Pioneering in the Other Colorado

by PJ Paulson

How do you bounce back when your life falls apart? Where do you go to recuperate? What do you do to heal? You can’t afford a move to Tuscany. A Spiritual Journey to Tibet is out of the question. Where do you go to awaken your True Soulâ?¦find a relief from pain (mental and/or physical)â?¦make sense of the chaosâ?¦find the good in peopleâ?¦and just get by from day-to-day?


-you’ve just lost your job,
-your romance has ended,
-you’ve broken a leg, and
-your personal space has been violated

Yes, it IS possible to heal and bounce back without traveling abroad! The author did it.

Unexpected unemployment, lost romance, a quirky painful medical condition, and repeated burglaries prompted an unconventional choice by the author to forego her city apartment, and embrace a simple, stripped-down, country life absent amenities such as plumbing, electricity, and central heat. Calling upon her pioneering spirit, she drew both serenity and strength from Mother Nature to savor life off the grid. During her retreat, she created a sanctuary in which she contemplated her own philosophies and life direction, ultimately transforming her outlook in the face of what appeared to have become a world gone mad.

How do you rise from the ashes of your previous life? What was the secret ingredient that grounded the author and helped her discover a fresh outlook? Without realizing it at the time, a central theme helped restore her when her old life fell apart. It can work for you, too! Check it out!

Rambles and Rants

by Keith Haughton

“Hold fast to hope. Your story is not over yet.”

Part memoir, part engaging dialogue, Rambles and Rants is unlike any book you have ever read. Intensely personal, yet immediately relevant, it is the story of one man’s struggle to survive in a world that feels increasingly unstable, disorienting and dangerous. It is, above all else, an inspirational journey of hope and healing, even in the midst of fear, confusion, and suffering.

From the author’s introduction: “The word ramble is often taken to mean ‘talking or writing in an aimless way.’ I sincerely hope that will not be your final verdict of my rambles. At any rate, I prefer this alternate definition: ‘to take a course with many turns or windings, as a stream or path.’ This seems a more fitting description of my life, and, perhaps, it is a realistic assessment of life itself. Certainly, the road behind us is marked with many unexpected twists, turns, obstacles, detours and dangers, as is the road we now walk, and the road that stretches ahead. And, in this way, we ramble together.

These snapshots of my life will be followed by rants, where I reflect on the previous chapter, offering thoughts from the present day on the lessons I have learned from the past. Sometimes these writings will be ‘angry and emotionally charged,’ as one dictionary defines the term rant. During these more impassioned reflections, I am not trying to be confrontive or combative simply for the sake of arguing or angering people. I am only writing from the perspective of who I am, and sometimes I am angry about things. I think there are many things worth being angry about, but I also know that if all we do is shout, protest, and deconstruct it all, we will end up ranting to no avail.

So, I hope that my words stir up thoughtful conversation, encourage self-reflection, inspire change where it is needed, and help us learn to listen to one another in better ways—respectfully, humbly, openly, honestly, lovingly. No matter how disparate our political, spiritual, ethical, and social perspectives might be, we have more in common than we know. Discovering that commonality is the great aim of the human endeavor. May we ramble and rant together in pursuit of it.”
