<p><strong>The first book in <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author Peter Wohlleben鈥檚 The Mysteries of Nature Trilogy. Book two, <em>The Inner Life of Animals</em>, is available now, and the third book, <em>The Secret Wisdom of Nature</em>, is coming in Spring 2019.</strong></p><br /><p>Are trees social beings? In this international bestseller, forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland.<br /><br />After learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.<br /><br /><em>Includes a Note From a Forest Scientist, by Dr.Suzanne Simard</em></p><p><em>Published in partnership with the David Suzuki Institute.</em></p>

<b> WINNER - 2019 Rubery Book Award BOOK OF THE YEAR & 16 other literary awards</b><br /><br /><b>An Engaging and Extraordinary Multigenerational Saga </b><br />A high position bestowed by China's empress dowager grants power and wealth to the Sun family. For Isabel, growing up in glamorous 1930s and '40s Shanghai, it is a life of utmost privilege. But while her scholar father and fashionable mother shelter her from civil war and Japanese occupation, they cannot shield the family forever.<br /><br />When Mao comes to power, eighteen-year-old Isabel journeys to Hong Kong, not realizing that she will make it her home--and that she will never see her father again. Meanwhile, the family she has left behind struggles to survive, only to have their world shattered by the Cultural Revolution. Isabel returns to Shanghai fifty years later with her daughter, Claire, to confront their family's past--one they discover is filled with love and betrayal, kidnappers and concubines, glittering pleasure palaces and underworld crime bosses.<br /><br />Lavishly illustrated and meticulously researched, <i>Remembering Shanghai</i> follows five generations from a hardscrabble village to vibrant Shanghai to the bright lights of Hong Kong.

Unlike Rick Sammon's 39 other best-selling and photo-rich books, <i>Photo Therapy Motivation and Wisdom 鈥?Discovering the Power of Pictures</i>, has no photographs between the covers. Yet, Rick feels as though it is his most important work. He trusts this book will make you think 鈥?hard 鈥?about your photography, and about how using your brain, the best photo 鈥渁ccessory,鈥?will help you become a better photographer. Or as stated by famed black-and-white landscape photographer Ansel Adams, 鈥淭he single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it.鈥?<br /><br />It鈥檚 not that Rick is tired of having to "lug around a camera," as Lewis Hine said, it鈥檚 just that he thinks the motivational and inspirational message of this book is better expressed without showing his own pictures. Rather, in reading the 35,000-word text, he鈥檇 like you to imagine your own pictures 鈥?and potential pictures 鈥?while he is describing a situation, process, technique, feeling or emotion.<br /><br />Chapters include: Emotional Intelligence for Photographers, Seeing vs. Looking, Creating Your Own Reality, It鈥檚 Never Too Late to Be What You Might Have Been, Light and Color Therapy, Learning is Health, and What Does Your Photography Mean to You? <br /><br />The book also includes more than 20 鈥渕issions鈥?that you can accept in your quest to expand your photographic horizons. <br /><br />This very personal book is filled with Rick鈥檚 photo and life wisdom 鈥?wisdom he has gained by spending almost an entire lifetime 鈥?starting in the late 1950鈥檚 with developing pictures in his parents鈥?basement 鈥?involved in photography in many forms and fashions. <br /><br />You will find many inspirational quotes in this book. One of Rick鈥檚 favorites: 鈥淲hen you are through changing, you are through.鈥?鈥?Bruce Barton

<b><i>NATIONAL BESTSELLER</i><br /><br />"A profound book.... It will break your heart but also leave you with hope." 鈥擩.D. Vance, author of <i>Hillbilly Elegy</i></b><br /><br /><b>"[A] deeply empathetic book." 鈥?lt;i>The Economist</i></b><br /><br /><b>With stark photo essays and unforgettable true stories, Chris Arnade cuts through "expert" pontification on inequality, addiction, and poverty to allow those who have been left behind to define themselves on their own terms.</b><br /><br />After abandoning his Wall Street career, Chris Arnade decided to document poverty and addiction in the Bronx. He began interviewing, photographing, and becoming close friends with homeless addicts, and spent hours in drug dens and McDonald's. Then he started driving across America to see how the rest of the country compared. He found the same types of stories everywhere, across lines of race, ethnicity, religion, and geography.聽<br /><br />The people he got to know, from Alabama and California to Maine and Nevada, gave Arnade a new respect for the dignity and resilience of what he calls America's Back Row--those who lack the credentials and advantages of the so-called meritocratic upper class. The strivers in the Front Row, with their advanced degrees and upward mobility, see the Back Row's values as worthless. They scorn anyone who stays in a dying town or city as foolish, and mock anyone who clings to religion or tradition as na茂ve.<br /><br />As Takeesha, a woman in the Bronx, told Arnade, she wants to be seen she sees herself: "a prostitute, a mother of six, and a child of God." This book is his attempt to help the rest of us truly see, hear, and respect millions of people who've been left behind.

When photographing people, you can have a great composition, perfect light, and the right camera settings, but if your subject doesn鈥檛 look right鈥攊f the pose is off鈥攖he shot will not be a keeper.

Lindsay then covers the five most important things that ruin a pose鈥攕uch as placement of the hands, and your subject鈥檚 expression and posture. If you can look out for and avoid these five things, your skills (and your images) will quickly improve.

She also discusses posing the face鈥攚ith specific sections dedicated to the chin, jaw, eyes, and forehead鈥攁s well as posing hands.</p><p>In the second half of the book, Lindsay dedicates entire chapters to posing specific subject matter: women, men, couples, curvy women, families and small groups, and large groups.
