Book Summary:

A candid, thrilling memoir from one of the most recognizable, influential, and beloved cinematic personalities in the world. Everyone knows Jackie Chan. Whether it’s from Rush Hour, Shanghai Noon, The Karate Kid, or Kung Fu Panda, Jackie is admired by generations of moviegoers for his acrobatic fighting style, comic timing, and mind-bending stunts. In 2016—after fifty-six years in the industry, over 200 films, and many broken bones—he received an honorary Academy Award for his lifetime achievement in film. But at 64 years-old, Jackie is just getting started. Now, in Never Grow Up, the global superstar reflects on his early life, including his childhood years at the China Drama Academy (in which he was enrolled at the age of six), his big breaks (and setbacks) in Hong Kong and Hollywood, his numerous brushes with death (both on and off film sets), and his life as a husband and father (which has been, admittedly and regrettably, imperfect). Jackie has never shied away from his mistakes. Since The Young Master in 1980, Jackie’s films have ended with a bloopers reel in which he stumbles over his lines, misses his mark, or crashes to the ground in a stunt gone south. In Never Grow Up, Jackie applies the same spirit of openness to his life, proving time and time again why he’s beloved the world over: he’s honest, funny, kind, brave beyond reckoning and—after all this time—still young at heart.

Book Summary:

The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord. Light it up! When you open a window, something has to either exit from or enter into that room. Whether it be the air we breathe coming in or the tantalizing scent from a freshly baked dessert that wafts out into the neighbourhood, a transition takes place. Books are the windows of the world. They allow information to enter our minds, or they allow our imagination to exit and travel to a different place; a transition takes place. Open one and you enter a place of discovery that you hadnt before thought about or you did think about but didnt take the leap. Consider the following conversation: I dont know why they said that, why they did that, why they think in that manner, what possessed them. I just dont understand; I just cant figure people out. Whats the motivation? Whats motivating me? If youre that person carrying on that conversation in your mind or sharing it with someone, then open the book and turn the pages. The answer to those questions always begin in the spiritual realm, but in order to perceive that, you must realize and understand that you are part spirit. That spirit is housed in a remarkably created body. And you can realize some of the answers (were not omniscient) as you grow in awareness and knowledge of that spirit within.

Book Summary:

Arrested Development It’s not your imagination. Millions of young adults today behave like children. Stuck in a permanent adolescence, they throw temper tantrums when they don’t get what they want, blame everyone but themselves for their failures, and refuse to take responsibility for their lives. We used to write off their behavior as a “phase.” But that phase doesn’t look like it’s ending anytime soon. And these grown children are pouring out of the glorified day care known as college and entering the corporate world full of infantile demands and expectations. A former university president, Dr. Everett Piper knows a thing or two about the ideas that motivate today’s youth. Having experienced the snowflake mob’s rage himself, he understands the threat that these young people pose to the rest of society. Grow Up! is his contrarian blueprint for a successful adult life. With bracing candor, Dr. Piper shares: • How ideologues disguised as teachers arrested the development of entire generations • The dangerous ideas in which popular culture and the education system marinate young people for years • Simple lessons for becoming a thinking, mature citizen • The qualities that made this country great and how to reclaim them Filled with wisdom and learning, Grow Up! is the antidote to the poison that we consume every day—a powerful corrective that shows readers how to live in truth and freedom.

Book Summary:

In Why Grow Up, the latest volume in the Philosophy in Transit series, world-renowned philosopher Susan Neiman looks at growing up as an ideal with urgent relevance today Becoming an adult today can seem a grim prospect. As you grow up, you are told to renounce most of the hopes and dreams of your youth, and resign yourself to a life that will be a pale dilution of the adventurous, important and enjoyable life you once expected. But who wants to do any of that? No wonder we live in a culture of rampant immaturity, argues internationally-renowned philosopher Susan Neiman, when maturity looks so boring. In Why Grow Up, Neiman explores the forces that are arrayed against maturity, and shows how philosophy can help us want to grow up. Travel, both literally and as a metaphor, has been seen as a crucial step to coming of age by thinkers as diverse as Kant, Rousseau, Hume and Simone de Beauvoir. Neiman discusses childhood, adolescence, sex, and culture, and asks how the idea of travel can help us build a model of maturity that makes growing up a good option and leaves space in our culture for grown-ups. Refuting the widespread belief that the best time of your life is the decade between sixteen and twenty-six, she argues that being grown-up is itself an ideal: one that is rarely achieved in its entirety, but all the more worth striving for. Susan Neiman is an American moral philosopher who has taught at Yale and Tel Aviv University. She currently lives in Germany, where she is the Director of the Einstein Forum in Potsdam.
