"I was a difficult child. I tormented my parents with my struggles for independence, disrespect, and disobedience. I was a rebel without a clue. I was not unlike most children and teenagers. I am pretty sure I rarely showed appreciation for what my mom did for me and gave to me. I simple didn't say thank you when I should have. This is my chance. Thank you, Mom." - Best-selling author Gregory E. Lang Lang says that there were many times when hew as hard on his mother and brought pain to her heart. Many times he didn't have the wisdom to take responsibility for his actions or the humility to admit that he was wrong. And yet she loved and cared for him in spite of his misconduct and ingratitude. Now, years later as a parent himself experiencing the tensions of parenting firsthand, he writes Thank You, Mom to express his gratitude to his mother, not just for the many sacrifices she made on his behalf, but also for the patience she extended to him in those turbulent years. In short, he thanks her for never giving up on him. He knows that he can't possibly thank his mother enough for everything she did for him while he was growing up, but in these pages he tries. In doing so, he touches on many universal themes that mothers and their children have always shared. "Thank you for loving me so much when it didn't seem that I loved you at all." "Thank you for helping me with my homework." "Thank you for making sure I learned to understand and respect 'no.'" "Thank you for teaching me how to do my own laundry." "Thank you for listening to me." "Thank you for protecting me from the dangers I couldn't see." Thank You, Mom is a gift book for anyone who wants to tell that special woman that you love her, that you know what she did for you, and that you look to her as the model for what it means to be a parent.

"My family has been the bedrock of my life - understanding, accepting, loving, helping, and teaching me at every step along my journey. It was from my family that I learned children come first and elders are to be respected, that I learned to give care and solace to those in need, to be thankful always and to give and receive affection often, to live up to my word and duty and to forgive, forget, have fun, and to never miss a chance to tell someone, 'I love you.' It is my family that I think about when in moments of reflection I ask myself what I am worth, what I have done with my life, and what I am going to do tomorrow." - Best-selling author Gregory E. Lang Building a happy, healthy family is a high priority for most of us these days.

Uniquely written from the perspective of the baby,Why I Need You is a gift for parents at any stage of parenthood. For new parents, it is an inspirational book that encourages them to press on, even when the day's requirements include changing another gooey diaper and wiping spit-up off of their best outfit. The birth of a baby is both wondrous and miraculous-often described as the happiest day of a parent's life. Even so, any new parent experiences a certain degree of fear upon the arrival of a newborn. Mixed with the joy and anticipation of welcoming a new life into the world is the overwhelming feeling of being completely responsible for the nurturing and well-being of a brand-new human. "I wish my daughter had come with an instruction book," writes Gregory E. Lang, "a parent's manual of endless details describing all possible infant behaviors." Since no book existed, Lang, like millions of other parents, felt his way along and learned by trial and error.Why I Need You is the record of what he learned, the manual that didn't come with his daughter. Why I Need You evokes the tender moments of child rearing and the emotion-filled memories that last a lifetime, reminding them from time to time why they were loved - and why they were needed.

"I know I always looked up to my father when I was young, but I'm also sure that I usually did a good job of hiding it. Like many children and teenagers, as I was growing up, I was mostly interested in what I wanted to do. Sometimes that put me in conflict with Dad. I'm pretty sure I didn't notice how hard he worked to provide for me and to support our family, and I'm pretty sure I never gave much thought to how his example provided me with much of what I would need once I left home and went out on my own." - Best-selling author Gregory E. Lang Lang has learned the most about what his dad did for him by being a father himself. As he looks out for his teenage daughters, he realizes that he is now doing for them what was done for him. As in his relationship with his own dad, at this point in their lives his daughters take for granted so much of what he does for them. Thank You, Dad is Lang's thank-you to his dad for how his father's example has guided and inspired him. He simply says, "Dad, you have been my inspiration and my example. Because of you, I know what it means to be a father and a man." His words touch all of us, expressing the unspoken thoughts between all children and their fathers. "Thank you for helping me take care of the things I couldn't handle by myself." "Thank you for standing by me when times were tough for me." "Thank you for setting limits when I needed them." "Thank you for showing your pride in me." "Thanks for requiring me to respect authority." "Thank you for teaching me to be a good sport, win or lose." "Thank you for all those time you carried me on your shoulders." Thank You, Dad is a gift book for anyone who wants to thank the special man in their life and to tell him how important he will always be. In so many ways, all of us build our lives upon what we have learned from our fathers.

Authentisch und anrührend Ein Buch, das es eigentlich gar nicht geben dürfte. Denn mit 24 Jahren wird Matt Haig von einer lebensbedrohlichen Krankheit überfallen, von der er bis dahin kaum etwas wusste: einer Depression. Es geschieht auf eine physisch dramatische Art und Weise, die ihn buchstäblich an den Abgrund bringt. Dieses Buch beschreibt, wie er allmählich die zerstörerische Krankheit besiegt und ins Leben zurückfindet. Eine bewegende, witzige und mitreißende Hymne an das Leben und das Menschsein – ebenso unterhaltsam wie berührend.
