The book draws on various sources, including interviews, academic seminars, reflections on Kwame Nkrumah by his contemporaries, family members, the youth in Ghana, Africanists, and selected original academic papers focusing on Kwame Nkrumah s life and times. It concludes that President Kwame Nkrumah s Pan-African vision in the 1950s and 1960s remains relevant today and for the future of Africa in the 21st century. Gordon s ability to chronicle Kwame Nkrumah s life, intellectual acumen, transformational and visionary leadership, approaches to social change, and an Africanization process marshalled by the reconfiguration of the African personality and policy, sets this book apart from other works about Kwame Nkrumah. This work on Nkrumah and his presidency is not an end unto itself, but a conceptual bridge for Africanists and African enthusiasts to travel to the future. –Seth N. Asumah, SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor and Chair, Africana Studies Department, State University of New York at Cortland In Revisiting Kwame Nkrumah: Pathways for the Future Professor Gordon provides us with a unique window into Nkrumah the man and his ideals, from the perspective of both Nkrumah’s better known contemporaries, as well as many of those “ordinary” people whose lives were directly impacted by his visions for Ghana and Africa. –Akosua Adomako Ampofo, Professor and Former Director, Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana

The first hit man came after me at home, which should be against the rules. Then there was a second, and a third. Eventually, I found out that the word on the street was that Anita Blake, preternatural expert and vampire killer extraordinaire, was worth half a million dollars. Dead, not alive. So what’s a girl to do but turn to the men in her life for help? Which in my case means an alpha werewolf and a master vampire. With professional killers on your trail, it’s not a bad idea to have as much protection as possible, human or otherwise. But I’m beginning to wonder if two monsters are better than one …
Pirlo’s profile could not be much higher, having competed in the Champions League final in May 2015 and then embarking on a new career signing with MLS side New York City FC in July 2015. The vibrancy, humor and vivid insight that carry Pirlo’s autobiography along confounds his image as a dead-eyed assassin on the field of play. All the big names are in there: Lippi, Ancelotti, Conte, Maldini, Shevchenko, Seedorf, Buffon, Kaka, Nesta, Costacurta, Gattuso, Berlusconi and Ronaldo (“the real one”). But they’re not always in their work clothes. We hear Berlusconi playing the piano and telling “various types” of joke at Milan’s training ground. We see Pirlo and Daniele De Rossi drawing Nesta’s ire as they take him on a mystery tour of the German countryside in a hire car days before a World Cup semi-final. And we smell the aftermath of Filippo Inzaghi’s graphically described pre-match routine.

In The Voice of Knowledge, Miguel Ruiz reminds us of a profound and simple truth: The only way to end our emotional suffering and restore our joy in living is to stop believing in lies — mainly about ourselves. Based on ancient Toltec wisdom, this breakthrough book shows us how to recover our faith in the truth and return to our own common sense.
Ruiz changes the way we perceive ourselves, and the way we perceive other people. Then he opens the door to a reality that we once perceived when we were one and two years old — a reality of truth, love, and joy.
We are born in truth, but we grow up believing in lies. . . . One of the biggest lies in the story of humanity is the lie of our imperfection. — don Miguel Ruiz
