Among members of the outlaw motorcycle clubs, Caesar Campbell is a legend. Former sergeant-at-arms and chief enforcer for the Comancheros, Caesar became the founding member and sergeant-at-arms of the Australian chapter of the Bandidos. He epitomised bikie culture - unbeatable in a fight, brutal in the extreme, fearing no one and nothing, and loyal until death. This is Caesar´s story, from his recruitment into the Comancheros, to the savage split within the club that led to the foundation of the Bandidos and the bloody massacre at Milperra that resulted from it. Enforcer is a unique and captivating true-crime story that will shock you with its raw violence, its brutality and its insights into an outlaw world. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dave Ferguson.

A rare work of narrative non-fiction that illuminates a world most of us try not to see: the daily lives of the severely mentally ill, who are medicated, marginalized, locked away, and shunned. Susan Doherty´s groundbreaking book brings us a population of lost souls, ill-served by society, feared, shunted from locked wards to rooming houses to the streets to jail and back again. For the past 10 years, some of the people who cycle in and out of the severely ill wards of the Douglas Institute in Montreal, have found a friend in Susan, who volunteers on the ward, and then follows her friends out into the world as they struggle to get through their days. With their full cooperation, she brings us their stories, which challenge the ways we think about people with mental illness. The spine of the book is the life of Caroline Evans (not her real name), a woman in her early 60s whom Susan has known since she was a bright and sunny school girl. Caroline had formed a close friendship with Susan and shared stories from her life; through her, we experience what living with schizophrenia over time is really like. She has been through it all, including the way the justice system treats the severely mentally ill: at one point, she believed that she could save her roommate from the devil by pouring boiling water into her ear....Susan interleaves Caroline´s story with vignettes about her other friends, human stories that reveal their hopes, their circumstances, their personalities, their humanity. She´s found that if she can hang in through the first 10 to 15 minutes of every coffee date with someone in the grip of psychosis, then true communication results. Their ´´madness´´ is not otherworldly: instead it tells us something about how they´re surviving their lives and what they´ve been through. The Ghost Garden is not only touching, but carries a cargo of compassion and empathy. ´´This is a book I wish I could have written. Susan Doh 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paula Kaye.

´´The future of relationships is moving us toward the vaulting awareness of who we really are as human beings, something we have managed to avoid for a very long time by being so thoroughly committed to convention...This is the future of love--vast love, love beyond boundaries, love without preconceptions and judgments, love without outdated myths--love which can actually be experienced.´´ At a time when over half of all marriages are ending in divorce, Daphne Rose Kingma, a well-known therapist and relationship expert, has recognized that our familiar ways of thinking about relationships are no longer working. ´´I have written this book because it is clear that many of our previous assumptions about relationships need to be dismantled,´´ writes Kingma. ´´As we go through this process, we will discover a number of new ideas: that our relationships can have different forms than we ever imagined; that they will serve different purposes; that they will require different offerings from us. They will also bring us new gifts.´´ We are in the midst of a sea change, in which not only are many traditional relationships failing, but unexpected new arrangements are beginning to appear; gay marriages are surfacing, step-families abound, and many people are consciously choosing to live alone. As Kingma explains, these transformations should not be feared; instead, they represent a real opportunity. In the past, conventional relationships were often destroyed by an overemphasis on the nuts and bolts of psychology, on working to achieve the unattainable ´´perfect relationship´´ while ignoring our most vital selves--our souls. The glorious message of The Future of Love is that the disturbing changes we are all experiencing are actually part of the soul´s plan, as it breaks down outdated conventions to bring us a new, fuller understanding of love.

Jessie Bell’s last parole hearing was a disgrace - one board member called her a witch and a harpy and said that, given the chance, he would have her put down like a rabid dog. Ten years in prison for killing her sadistically abusive husband had turned Jessie Bell into a poisoned, embittered, and dangerous person. The parole hearing was the straw that broke the camel’s back. It was payback time. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth? No, not for Jessie Bell. Her version of justice wasn´t just about getting even. It was about taking back twice as much as had been taken from you. Two eyes for one. Justice meant redressing all the imbalances - and putting out only one eye didn’t compare to the loss of all the advantages of losing two eyes. Fortunately, Jessie is offered the position of the late Pavo, Regan’s Uncle Paul, in the Organization. And she accepted it. ´´Justice,´´ she murmured. ´´Poetic justice. Justice that I can create myself.´´ She balled up her fists on the table. ´´Yeah, there´s more than a few people I know who need some poetic justice right about now.´´ A former Delta Force operative is serving a life sentence for killing an eight-year-old girl. He was found guilty just because he could have done it and people feared him? Who was the real killer? It was like the whole world was turning crazy. A judge´s son murdered innocent kids, then had his kids, in turn, murdered. Dangerous chemicals killed hundreds, then spread into the water supply. The City turned into a permanent rush hour - a panicked slow crawl. Drug dealers and pimps were getting killed on the streets. Karma? Jessie had always been a fan of ordinary human beings carrying out the work of karma. There is only one person who could possibly stop the inevitable bloodbath that Jessie is about to unleash on the city - Judge Regan St. Clair - but to do so, she must cross the line she has sworn never to cross - join the 1.
