Pursuit by , Summary

From the #1 New York Times-bestselling author, “a compelling domestic horror story” of a new bride haunted by childhood nightmares (Kirkus Reviews). Less than twenty-four hours after exchanging vows with her new husband, Willem, Abby steps out into traffic. As his wife lies in her hospital bed, sleeping in fits and starts, Willem tries to determine whether this was an absentminded accident or a premeditated plunge, and he quickly discovers a mysterious set of clues about what his wife might be hiding. Why, for example is there a rash-like red mark circling her wrist? What does she dream about that causes her to wake from the sound of her own screams? Slowly, Abby begins to open up to her husband, revealing to him what she has never shared with anyone before—a story of a terrified mother; a jealous, drug-addled father; a daughter’s terrifying captivity; and the demons behind her terrible recurring dreams of wandering through a field ridden with human skulls and bones… From a recipient of a National Book Award and three Bram Stoker Awards, this suspenseful, twisting tale, named one of the scariest books of the year by Kirkus Reviews, is a “fast-paced examination of the destructive and restorative nature of obsessive love” (Booklist).

The Pursuit of God by A. W. Tozer Summary

"The Pursuit of God" is an inspirational guide for Christians seeking to get closer to God. The author identifies one of the major problems of the Christian Church. He suggests that the Church is making a new type of Christian who understands the Christian doctrine better than ever throughout the history, but still fails to understand what it really means to be a follower of Christ. Having identified the problem, Tozer offers a beautiful solution that is more practical and mystical than theological. He encourages the Christian to take the seeking of God and make it the foundation upon which their life is built. Being a mystic, he focuses on experience, feeling and hearing God's voice as important to faith.

The Pursuit of the House-Boat by John Kendrick Bangs Summary

Not even death can keep a good pirate down—but the world’s greatest detective might be able to give him a run for his money The houseboat on the river Styx is the afterlife’s hippest meeting spot, and it attracts some of history’s greatest luminaries: William Shakespeare, Confucius, Napoleon Bonaparte, George Washington, and Socrates have all spent time together there. But such illustrious men also attract less savory characters from the past. One of these scoundrels, the great pirate Captain Kidd, seizes an opportunity to pick up some cigars from London with the houseboat. Now the vessel is missing, and there’s only one dead man skilled enough in deduction to track down Kidd and the boat—the world’s foremost detective, Sherlock Holmes. Meanwhile, Captain Kidd has his hands full, as the stolen boat contains an unexpected set of stowaways who are making his quick jaunt far more difficult than he bargained for. The Pursuit of the House-Boat is a raucous romp through the underworld. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

The Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau Summary

A remarkable guide to the quests that give our lives meaning—and how to find your own—from the New York Times bestselling author of The $100 Startup and 100 Side Hustles “If you like complacency and mediocrity, do not read this book. It’s dangerously inspiring.”—A. J. Jacobs, author of The Know-It-All When he set out to visit all of the planet’s countries by age thirty-five, compulsive goal-seeker Chris Guillebeau never imagined that his journey’s biggest revelation would be how many people like himself exist—each pursuing a challenging quest. These quests are as diverse as humanity itself, involving exploration, the pursuit of athletic or artistic excellence, or battling against injustice and poverty. Everywhere that Chris visited he found ordinary people working toward extraordinary goals, making daily down payments on their dreams. These “questers” included a suburban mom pursuing a wildly ambitious culinary project, a DJ producing the world’s largest symphony, a young widower completing the tasks his wife would never accomplish—and scores of others writing themselves into the record books. The more Chris spoke with these strivers, the more he began to appreciate the direct link between questing and long-term happiness, and he was compelled to complete a comprehensive study of the phenomenon. In The Happiness of Pursuit, he draws on interviews with hundreds of questers, revealing their secret motivations, their selection criteria, the role played by friends and family, their tricks for solving logistics, and the importance of documentation. Equally fascinating is Chris’s examination of questing’s other side. What happens after the summit is climbed, the painting hung, the endurance record broken, the at-risk community saved? A book that challenges each of us to take control—to make our lives be about something while at the same time remaining clear-eyed about the commitment—The Happiness of Pursuit will inspire readers of every age and aspiration. It’s a playbook for making your life count. “The Happiness of Pursuit is smart, honest, and dangerous. Why dangerous? Because it is as practical as it is inspiring. You won’t just be daydreaming about your quest—you’ll be packing for it!”—Brené Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, author of Daring Greatly

The Pursuit of Unhappiness by Daniel M. Haybron Summary

The pursuit of happiness is a defining theme of the modern era. But what if people aren't very good at it? This and related questions are explored in this book, the first comprehensive philosophical treatment of happiness in the contemporary psychological sense. In these pages, Dan Haybron argues that people are probably less effective at judging, and promoting, their own welfare than common belief has it. For the psychological dimensions of well-being, particularly our emotional lives, are far richer and more complex than we tend to realize. Knowing one's own interests is no trivial matter. As well, we tend to make a variety of systematic errors in the pursuit of happiness. We may need, then, to rethink traditional assumptions about human nature, the good life, and the good society. Thoroughly engaged with both philosophical and scientific work on happiness and well-being, this book will be a definitive resource for philosophers, social scientists, policy makers, and other students of human well-being.

The Enlightenment by Ritchie Robertson Summary

The Enlightenment is one of the formative periods of Western history, yet more than 300 years after it began, it remains controversial. It is often seen as the fountainhead of modern values such as human rights, religious toleration, freedom of thought, scientific thought as an exemplary form of reasoning, and rationality and evidence-based argument. Others accuse the Enlightenment of putting forward a scientific rationality which ignores the complexity and variety of human beings, propagates shallow atheism, and aims to subjugate nature to so-called technical progress. Answering the question 'what is Enlightenment?' Kant famously urged men and women above all to 'have the courage to use your own understanding'. Robertson shows how the thinkers of the Enlightenment did just that, seeking a rounded understanding of humanity in which reason was balanced with emotion and sensibility. His book goes behind the controversies about the Enlightenment to return to its original texts and to show that above all it sought to increase human happiness in this world by promoting scientific inquiry and reasoned argument. His book overturns many received opinions - for example, that enlightenment necessarily implied hostility to religion (though it did challenge the authority traditionally assumed by the Churches). It is a master-class in 'big picture' history, about one of the foundational epochs of modern times.

In Pursuit of the Moon by Bill Townsend Summary

In 2007, NASA released a request for proposals for the development of the avionics unit—the brains—of a new launch vehicle intended to return humans to the moon for the first time in forty years, before proceeding on to Mars. This is the story of Ball Aerospace’s pursuit of this opportunity, while competing against four other major aerospace company teams, with almost $1 billion of new work at stake. After forty-plus years with NASA, the author, having joined Ball Aerospace in Boulder, Colorado, in 2004, took thirty-five top-notch Birkenstock-wearing engineers to Huntsville, Alabama, to establish a new Ball Aerospace office and lead the pursuit of the ARES I Instrument Unit Avionics contract. Being less than a tenth the size of its competitors, Ball Aerospace was a certifiable underdog. Once there, the Ball Aerospace team worked toward a common goal: pursuing and winning the contract by seeking to overcome the entrenched aerospace contractors who had dominated NASA’s human space flight program for decades. Explore the inner workings of a real-life industry pursuit and see how a major government agency, NASA, behaves and conducts itself with its contractor base—sometimes in ways you would not expect.

The Pursuit of Happiness by Bianca C. Williams Summary

In The Pursuit of Happiness Bianca C. Williams traces the experiences of African American women as they travel to Jamaica, where they address the perils and disappointments of American racism by looking for intimacy, happiness, and a connection to their racial identities. Through their encounters with Jamaican online communities and their participation in trips organized by Girlfriend Tours International, the women construct notions of racial, sexual, and emotional belonging by forming relationships with Jamaican men and other "girlfriends." These relationships allow the women to exercise agency and find happiness in ways that resist the damaging intersections of racism and patriarchy in the United States. However, while the women require a spiritual and virtual connection to Jamaica in order to live happily in the United States, their notion of happiness relies on travel, which requires leveraging their national privilege as American citizens. Williams's theorization of "emotional transnationalism" and the construction of affect across diasporic distance attends to the connections between race, gender, and affect while highlighting how affective relationships mark nationalized and gendered power differentials within the African diaspora.

Feminist Theory in Pursuit of the Public by R. Goodman Summary

Feminist Theory in Pursuit of the Public argues that feminism needs to develop a theory of the public. It responds to a moment when feminism's impetus to reconstitute the private sphere left a huge gap in its political thinking on the public. This inattention to the public is particularly worrisome now when the nation-state and its publics seem to have diminishing power and compromised democratic agency. The waning of power in the public sphere diminishes the influence that citizens can have in deciding on the conditions of life, and therefore minimizes the changes that feminists can envision or enact in the social field to work towards equality, access, deliberation, participation, just distribution, rights, and authority for women.

Beyond the Wilds: Helena's Pursuit of Freedom by Mary Kolisnyk Spry-Myers Summary

In the 1800s, a European peasant desired freedom from his dominant, uncaring landlord in Ukraine. He chose a new life and country for himself and his family, immigrating to the wilds of Manitoba, Canada. The very primitive lifestyle in the frontier wilderness of Canadian woodlands provided the backdrop of the formidable challenges, difficulties and hardships he and his family had experienced-through long years of adjustment-on the road to survival and success. The story takes you on many interesting journeys, across the sea, through time, to a conclusion. This saga tells a heart-gripping human story embedded in history, exemplifying the courage and strength of this family, and highlighting one particular individual, Helena. Ukraine, situated in Southeastern Europe, is about one-tenth the size of Canada. Its countryside is very picturesque with abundant rich agricultural land and has gained the reputation as the "breadbasket" of Europe. At the height of feudalism until 1848, male peasants forced into serfdom were not allowed to own land in Ukraine. After serfdom was abolished, most male peasants were too poor financially to purchase land. One of them was a Ukrainian peasant, Jacob, who found landlessness extremely depressing. His landlord owned the land he and his family lived on. Jacob built the dwellings on the land, but was unable to purchase the land. Jacob heard about an offer from the Canadian government for Europeans willing to purchase 160 acres of land for ten dollars. He decided to pursue the opportunity, not realizing the difficulties and challenges he and his family would have to go through in order to survive. Mary experienced much anxiety during the journey by ship to Montreal. Several of her children became ill. She also had many concerns about the family's uncertain future in a new country. Mary's feelings of insecurity grew during their wagon ride through miles of deep wooded area to reach their new home. She took notice of the uninhabited territory for miles around. Mary soon learned that children walked many miles through the woods to attend school. Wild animals were close by. Temperatures went as low as thirty to forty degrees below zero during the winter months. The story expands on the eldest child, Michael, his marriage to Helena and their family. Their first intimate relationship was on their wedding night. It took place in a hayloft with the sound of cattle chewing and moving around below them. Michael had a strong desire to own land before having children. This desire was overtaken by the birth of their son, Bohdan, about nine months following their marriage. Unfortunately, because a doctor was not available in the area, the boy died from pneumonia at a very young age. Michael and Helena's family increased rapidly. Michael agreed to a partnership with Helena's brother, Jack, over a down payment for a farm estate. Michael was at first thrilled with this venture, but unfortunately they experienced many years of financial depression. Jack decided to walk away from the deal and left the farm to Michael. One of the highlights on the farm Helena enjoyed the most was having a larger home for the children. Her sister, Nellie, visited and stayed on for short periods, helping her with the children. On one occasion, Nellie took care of the children while Michael and Helena went out for a neighborhood get-together four miles from their home. They traveled to their destination by horse and stone boat. The ride home became a nightmare when Michael was not able to control the horse with the reins. The horse finally stopped at the barn door. Michael was astonished when he turned around to talk to Helena and realized she was no longer with him. Where was she? Michael's farming experience became more depressing as more payments were deferred and obligations unmet.. During this very low period, Michael met an elderly
