The Tao of Bowie: 10 Lessons from David Bowie's Life to Help You Live Yours

The Tao of Bowie: 10 Lessons from David Bowie's Life to Help You Live Yours

Author: Mark Edwards Narrator: Edward Mitchell Release Date: 01/03/2021

The Tao of Bowie is partly a book about David Bowie. But it's mainly a book about you. Buddhism was central to David Bowie's life, but he was a wide-ranging thinker who also drew meaning from other sources including Jungian psychology, Nietzschean philosophy and Gnosticism. The Tao of Bowie condenses these concepts - the ideas that inspired and supported Bowie throughout his life and career - into ten powerful lessons, each with a series of exercises, meditations and techniques to encourage readers to apply these learnings to their own lives. The Tao of Bowie will help readers understand who they really are, clarify their purpose in life, manage their emotions and cope with setbacks and change. This fresh approach to the search for spirituality and happiness unites the perennial human quest for answers with the extraordinary mind and unique career of one of the most important cultural figures of the past half-century. It has a simple concept: that David Bowie's lifetime journey of self-discovery can be used as a template for yours; that the powerful ideas that fascinated Bowie and helped to shape his work, his career and his life can help you towards a life of greater happiness and purpose; and that, by following the exercises in this book, you can pursue your own journey to self-discovery using Bowie as an accessible gateway to some of the world's wisest teachings. A unique take on mindfulness, meditation and meaning filtered through the life and work of David Bowie.

The Magpies

The Magpies

Author: Mark Edwards Narrator: Elliot Hill Release Date: 01/01/2014

Meet the neighbors from hell, in the gripping thriller that reviewers and readers describe as “fast-paced,” “chilling,” and “impossible to put down.” When Jamie and Kirsty move into their first home together, they are full of optimism. The future, in which they plan to get married and start a family, is bright. The other residents of their building seem friendly too, including the Newtons, a married couple who welcome them to the building with open arms. But then strange things start to happen. Dead rats are left on their doorstep. They hear disturbing noises, and much worse, in the night. After Jamie’s best friend is injured in a horrific accident, Jamie and Kirsty find themselves targeted by a campaign of terror. As they are driven to the edge of despair, Jamie vows to fight back – but he has no idea what he is really up against . . . The Magpies is a gripping psychological thriller in which the monsters are not vampires or demons but the people who live next door. It is a nightmare that could happen to anyone. Praise for The Magpies “Mark Edwards achieves what other writers yearn for, by creating characters that genuinely feel like real people, individuals you know personally – and then puts them into the scariest of situations so that we cannot help but suffer with them. Edwards takes the places that should feel safe and subverts them, shifting the ground beneath our feet, until we’re left clinging to the book, hoping against hope for a positive conclusion. There’s something deeply unsettling about The Magpies – and that’s exactly as it should be.” — Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner “The Magpies is absorbing, claustrophobic and terrifying. Read this book! Then get a top notch alarm system fitted in your house.” — Helen Fitzgerald, author of The Cry
