Book 1 in the New York Times bestselling trilogy, perfect for fans of Battlestar Gallactica and Passengers! WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO SURVIVE ABOARD A SPACESHIP FUELED BY LIES? Amy is a cryogenically frozen passenger aboard the spaceship Godspeed. She has left her boyfriend, friends--and planet--behind to join her parents as a member of Project Ark Ship. Amy and her parents believe they will wake on a new planet, Centauri-Earth, three hundred years in the future. But fifty years before Godspeed's scheduled landing, cryo chamber 42 is mysteriously unplugged, and Amy is violently woken from her frozen slumber. Someone tried to murder her. Now, Amy is caught inside an enclosed world where nothing makes sense. Godspeed's 2,312 passengers have forfeited all control to Eldest, a tyrannical and frightening leader. And Elder, Eldest's rebellious teenage heir, is both fascinated with Amy and eager to discover whether he has what it takes to lead. Amy desperately wants to trust Elder. But should she put her faith in a boy who has never seen life outside the ship's cold metal walls? All Amy knows is that she and Elder must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets before whoever woke her tries to kill again.

Culturally the Beatles were a global phenomenon - changing all facets of popular music for good, but not just because they were a band that made great recordings. How big a part did performing in concert play? Would they have achieved what they did without an early grounding in the dance halls and clubs of Liverpool and Hamburg? After their first year as a headline-grabbing attraction, why did The Beatles soon tire of the relentless pace of Beatlemania? Through print and images from the visually-astounding "Daily Mirror" archive, "Across The Universe: On Tour And On Stage" answers these questions, examining in detail the Beatles as a live act between the key Beatlemania years of 1963-1966 and to mark the event's 40th anniversary, The Beatles' last ever performance - an impromptu session on a central London rooftop. "Across The Universe: On Tour And On Stage" takes the reader on a magical mystery tour though ballrooms, theaters, airports, limos, and stadiums across the globe and along the way, illustrates why The Beatles were seen but not heard throughout the 1960s.

The music's still playing, fifty years on . . . It is 1965, and John, Paul, George and Ringo have lost themselves. Beatlemania is at its peak and the boys are overwhelmed by screaming fans, more money than they can count, and fame beyond their dreams. But one day, on the sets of the surreal Help!, George discovers the sitar, starting the boys off on a journey filled with drug-induced introspection, transnational spirituality and damned fine music. It is 1968, and John, Paul, George and Ringo have decided to find themselves. Following an eerie series of events, as if devised by fate, the boys are brought to Rishikesh, India, in pursuit of eternal happiness through a secret mantra from Transcendental Meditation guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Hoping to get the better of their personal demons, they seek to break the shackles of stardom even though it begins the unravelling of the band. Across the Universe etches in lyrical detail a picture of the world's greatest band torn apart by their inner dissensions yet bursting with creative genius. Full of characters and happenings delightful and evil, of comic excess and dark whimsy, the book traces the path the Beatles took to India

"All you need is love" war die Botschaft John Lennons 1967 bei der ersten weltweit ausgestrahlten Live-Fernsehsendung, die ein Millionenpublikum erreichte. Seine Liedtexte sind Schlüsselmomente in der Entwicklung seiner Philosophie. Auf der Basis von Interviews, Songs, Gedichten und Prosa John Lennons entwirft Gary Tillery ein Bild des vielseitigen Künstlers, das dreiißig Jahre nach seinem Tod überfällig ist. Er zeigt einen Menschen, der nach einer schwierigen Kindheit mit 23 Jahren alles im Leben erreicht hat, aber nicht mehr weiterweiß. Ruhm und Reichtum bedeuten ihm nichts. In dieser Phase des Zweifelns und der Neuorientierung beginnt John Lennon, sich intensiv mit Philosophie zu beschäftigen. Auf dem Weg, der ihn schließlich zu einem spirituellen Menschen und geistigen Vordenker werden lässt, macht er zunächst Grenzerfahrungen mit Drogen. Dann eröffnet ihm die Meditation innere Welten. Die Trennung von den Beatles ist ein entscheidender Schritt auf dem Weg zur Selbstfindung. "Lerne zur rechten Zeit du selbst zu sein" - dieser Appell richtet sich an jeden und zeigt, wie wichtig John Lennons Botschaft gerade in unserer heutigen Zeit ist. John Lennons tragischer Tod beendete ein viel zu kurzes Leben, dessen kreative Energie noch lange nicht ausgeschöpft war, aber bis heute nachwirkt.
