Explorations in the City of Light
Discovered is a collection of 50 probing
chapters intended for armchair travelers and visitors to the City
of Light. Digging deep into Paris memories, the author has
discovered patterns of the past that have left tangible imprints
on the city today. McAuliffe explores Paris through space and time,
from the top of Notre Dame to the medieval aqueducts that still
lie beneath its streets; from the Impressionists Path to the
barricades of Les Miserables; from Abélard and Héloïse
to Napoleon; from the antiques of Village Saint-Paul to the new
hot spot for shopping, Viaduc des Arts. She unearths the Paris that
charmed Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams in the
eighteenth century - and George Gershwin and Ernest Hemingway in
the twentieth century. In her explorations, McAuliffe discovers
a hidden river, the Bièvre, and follows its course. You feel
that you are on an adventure with the author as she investigates
the city and discovers surprises such as a twelfth century chapel
disguised as a private house! Or a mysterious small round building
with a distinctive cupola that turns out to be part of an ancient
waterworks! Full of off-the-beaten path excursions and little known
historical facts about prominent locations, Paris Discovered
intrigues and englightens.

Mind/Body Exercises for Strength,
Flexibility, Posture, and Balance
for Men and Women
Power combines scientific principles with movement and imagery
exercises that are both effective and fun to perform, clearing
the path to a stronger foundation for our body. The exercises
train the muscles and joints and also improve the tone of the
organs, increasing energy flow.
only full-length book of exercises and mind-body techniques directed
to the general public on the newly-recognized importance of the
pelvic floor, affecting posture (which affects every other body
part), vitality, sexual function, and preventing incontinence.
The pelvic floor acts as a support for the inner organs and contains
a passage for the urethra, the sex organs, and for a baby during
birth. It plays an important role in almost all movements, in
balance and in good body posture. Many back, knee, and foot problems
can be cured through conscious training of the pelvic floor- a
well-trained pelvic floor has an essential effect on our well-being
and vitality. Because the female pelvic floor is more flexible
and the male floor tends to be less so, this training program
has the goals of increased flexibility for men and the building
up of strength for women.
Franklin writes of this important new area of study and exercise
in his usual vivid, amusing and highly effective way.
