*2018 Grammy Nominee in the Spoken Word Category*
This book is about finding a better, more meaningful life. Robert Hanley has an insightful way of looking at the world - finding deeper meaning in everyday events that seem to float past the observations of most people. His unique perception has helped make his life better, bringing him greater understanding, joy, fulfillment, and peace. He reveals his common sense process through wise, humorous, and heartwarming real-life tales taken from his own personal experiences. They may well make you laugh, cry, think, and help you to see the common threads of what he calls "discovering the obvious." Whether filling up his car at a gas station or having his teeth cleaned at the dentist, auditioning for a film starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino or giving the eulogy at Dean Martin's memorial, the universal truths and values Robert uncovers in these anecdotes and stories relay the everyday applicability of a simple perspective that can provide enormous benefits to each of us in our respective journeys through life.

The Civil War is easily the darkest, most fascinating chapter of American history. Its horrors have reverberated for more than 150 years, and the events of the war continue to affect families today.

In Ancestors in the Attic, the descendants of Union soldier James Atwater Barrett share a breathtaking collection of letters, diary entries, photographs, and other historical documents that together tell a story of love and war.

A clerk in New York at the onset of the war, twenty-nine-year-old James Atwater Barrett felt duty bound to enlist in the Forty-Eighth New York Volunteer Infantry. What followed was four years of battles, sickness, and near-fatal wounds. Meanwhile, Barrett's fianc e, Jane Farmer, wrote with love and concern from his hometown of Concord, Massachusetts.

Consisting almost entirely of primary sources, Ancestors in the Attic provides a stunning look at a soldier's life during the Civil War. Barrett participated in many famous battles, including the Battle of Fort Wagner, and even watched famous nurse Clara Barton tend to the wounded. Anyone interested in the Civil War will relish in this detailed account of one man's survival through America's bloodiest conflict.

Directing the program is Momo Kafritz, a middle-aged Israeli wrecking ball who imposes his will on the tour. Led by Momo, Adam and his busmates walk unwittingly into tourist traps, propagandist rallies, and four star hotels.
