Keith Morris is a true punk icon. No one else embodies the sound of Southern Californian hardcore the way he does. With his waist-length dreadlocks and snarling vocals, Morris is known the world over for his take-no-prisoners approach on the stage and his integrity off of it. Over the course of his forty-year career with Black Flag, the Circle Jerks, and OFF!, he's battled diabetes, drug and alcohol addiction, and the record industry...and he's still going strong. My Damage is more than a book about the highs and lows of a punk rock legend. It's a story from the perspective of someone who has shared the stage with just about every major figure in the music industry and has appeared in cult films like The Decline of Western Civilization and Repo Man. A true Hollywood tale from an L.A. native, My Damage reveals the story of Morris's streets, his scene, and his music-as only he can tell it.

‘Harrowing, funny and 100% true’ Ginger Wildheart The tale that follows is not another clichéd collection of rock’n’roll debaucheries (sorry) nor is it another tired fable of triumph over adversity (you’re welcome). It’s the story of a half-deaf kid from a tiny, remote village in South Wales who was hailed as a genius by the UK’s biggest radio station and headhunted by major record labels, only for the music industry to collapse. It crashed hard, taking with it an entire generation of talented artists who would never now get their shot. CNN called it ‘music’s lost decade’. Along the way, there are goodies, baddies, gun-toting label execs, life-saving surgeons, therapy, true love, loyalty, hope, breakdowns, suicidal managers, betrayal, drummers and way too many hangovers. James Kennedy shows that the best lessons are to be learned from good losers. It really is all about the journey. Part memoir, part exposé of the music world’s murky underbelly, Noise Damage is emotional, painfully honest, funny, informative and ridiculous. It’s also a celebration of the life-changing magic of music.

The newest title in the series Survivor Stories, this book tells the story of Paul Allen, a photographer who likes opera and was a good baritone singer. At the age of 56 he sustained a stroke that left him paralysed and speechless. He has Locked-In Syndrome (LIS), a rare consequence of brain damage. Although Paul is fully conscious and his cognitive abilities are intact, he is unable to move or speak due to the paralysis of nearly all his voluntary muscles. However, Paul is keen to communicate and through his eye movements he tells his story, from his early life, career, singing and other interests, to the details of his stroke and the effects it has had on his life. The book also includes contributions from Paul’s wife Liz, who tells the story from her point of view, along with Paul’s physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, psychologists and others from the Raphael Hospital who have assisted in Paul’s rehabilitation. In telling of his frustrations, his successes, his views on life and how he sees his future, Paul raises awareness of the quality of life possible for those with LIS. Combining scientific knowledge with personal narrative, this unique and optimistic book is of huge importance to any professional involved in the care of someone with a brain injury, and to the individuals and families touched by LIS.

Damaged to Victory: Secrets to My Son By: Natasha Brown God, why do you hate me? The monsters hurt me again and again, and she won’t help me. Isn’t a mother supposed to protect her children? I know she knows what these beasts are doing to me and my sisters; she has to hear our cries. I want to die. I don’t want to be this anymore. Enough. God, I have had enough, just let me die. I have to be better for my son. My past will not define my future. My immaculate conception, my first love, my one true victory, my reason for living, the love of my life will never know the feeling of degradation and self-hatred I felt the first time I realized that my mother did not love me enough to protect me nor did she care. That will not be my son’s reality. Though my divine blessing was a product of rape, I will protect him with my life! God blessed me when he brought the Goldsteins in my life. These great people, my God-given parents, took this flawed hurt girl with all my thorns, self-hate, and rage and loved me to wellness. They brought me from damage to victory, and now it is time to tell my secrets to my son.

NAMED A BOOK OF THE YEAR BY THE ECONOMIST AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF 2021 BY THE TIMES AND THE SUNDAY TIMES "Irreversible Damage . . . has caused a storm. Abigail Shrier, a Wall Street Journal writer, does something simple yet devastating: she rigorously lays out the facts." —Janice Turner, The Times of London Until just a few years ago, gender dysphoria—severe discomfort in one’s biological sex—was vanishingly rare. It was typically found in less than .01 percent of the population, emerged in early childhood, and afflicted males almost exclusively. But today whole groups of female friends in colleges, high schools, and even middle schools across the country are coming out as “transgender.” These are girls who had never experienced any discomfort in their biological sex until they heard a coming-out story from a speaker at a school assembly or discovered the internet community of trans “influencers.” Unsuspecting parents are awakening to find their daughters in thrall to hip trans YouTube stars and “gender-affirming” educators and therapists who push life-changing interventions on young girls—including medically unnecessary double mastectomies and puberty blockers that can cause permanent infertility. Abigail Shrier, a writer for the Wall Street Journal, has dug deep into the trans epidemic, talking to the girls, their agonized parents, and the counselors and doctors who enable gender transitions, as well as to “detransitioners”—young women who bitterly regret what they have done to themselves. Coming out as transgender immediately boosts these girls’ social status, Shrier finds, but once they take the first steps of transition, it is not easy to walk back. She offers urgently needed advice about how parents can protect their daughters. A generation of girls is at risk. Abigail Shrier’s essential book will help you understand what the trans craze is and how you can inoculate your child against it—or how to retrieve her from this dangerous path.

True love can blossom in unexpected places. This is Parker pretending not to care. . . . Parker Whalen and Jaden McEntyre are a wrong fit from the start. Jaden is driven and focused, Harvard Med School within reach. Parker has a past—a reputation—and the rumors about his mysterious habits abound. So there’s no reason why, when they're assigned to work together on a project in English, they should discover they have anything in common, or even like each other, and they definitely shouldn't be falling in love. What they have? It isn't real. Because the truth is Parker Whalen is a liar. This has never mattered…until now. Because lying to someone you care about—someone who matters, someone who believes in you—that's when people get hurt. And Parker is about to hurt Jaden in the biggest way imaginable. COLLATERAL DAMAGE is the companion novel to CROSS MY HEART, which spent more than 100 days on the Amazon Teen Top 100 Bestseller List in its first year of release, and was a 2011 Goodreads Choice Awards Nominee for Best YA Fiction. COLLATERAL DAMAGE, a 76k word/300 page novel for Young Adults, is CROSS MY HEART told from Parker's point of view. **Though this is not a series, the author highly recommends reading CROSS MY HEART before COLLATERAL DAMAGE** Keywords: teen drama, contemporary YA, young adult, bad boy romance, romantic love story, coming of age, strangers to lovers

This book is directed at women who are surviving after living through (or are still currently living with) a mother who is toxic. This book is for women who are searching for recovery from unloving mothers. This book is both a memoir and a self help book. It's also an aggressive learning curve. It began as a tool for myself, and morphed into a desire to help others, due to the lack of effective solutions I was finding in the related literature. I'm going to share with you my journey to a better life - a life I found beyond my mother and beyond my damage; but no longer beyond my control.This book is not for women who want to 'work it out' with their moms. This book is for women who want to work themselves out. This isn't a 'hippy dippy, take it easy, go slow' thing. This is fierce. This book is the life hack version for women raised by emotionally abusive mothers. We will not be opening our hearts to the universe. I will not be offering warm, fuzzy things so you can gently approach a more inclusive and holistic experience on our metaphysical plain. We will not be learning to vibrate at a higher frequency.This book is a Louisville slugger to a set of headlights. This book is the shove. It's the push. This book is not a path - it's an uphill, rugged, unmarked cliff side.There is a way for us to build ourselves beyond and above our current framework. We need to believe our shell has potential to expand, to accommodate an excess of progress. We can surpass or transcend our current psychological/mental/emotional domains.The people in this world who enter the 'thriving' mindset are people who are living beyond trauma, damage, abuse, suffering and victim-hood. Our goal is to make sure you've left the place of 'victim' behind you. We are going to remove that description from your identity. On top of that - we're going to change you from 'survivor' to 'thriver.' Tough concept; I know. But it's real and we can do it.This book will help you be passionate about not carrying on a damaged legacy of love to the other people around you. It takes learning, it takes practice. The tools in this book are the ones children should be offered by loving caregivers. You were not. But it's never too late to change and never too late to learn. There is life beyond your damage. A life beyond your mother. A life that you control and have ownership of. A life that you can lay down in front of yourself, brick by brick, the way you want it to be. Lay that next brick and take that next step. Don't survive this life. Thrive in this life.

We’re a match made in hell, Stefan and I. He took me to exact his revenge. I went from being a pawn to my father to being a pawn to Stefan.
