Book Description: A young woman wakes up in her bedroom in hospital. She has emerged from a prolonged coma. Rather than going back to her husband and child, she leaves the home and begins walking into the wilderness. Walking to the Moon details her journey from darkness to light, from the profound psychological trauma that caused her to withdraw from the world, and the mountains of the mind she must conquer in order to rejoin it. Walking to the Moon is not a bleak or dark journey. It is beautifully written, observant, witty and often profoundly moving. Kate Cole-Adams has mastered the art of empathy so that the reader is instantly recruited to side with our heroine and to cheer her on, step by step, in her search to reconnect with the world.

Book Description: Suppose the New Rijksmuseum were in the market for a site on the moon, some time in the near or distant future. Would it be sensible, or nonsensical, for the Rijksmuseum to purchase a lunar plot where it can safely house its collection? Since the "discovery" of the moon, people have laid claim to it, whether symbolic or genuine. The moon has resources that could potentially be extracted using technologies yet to be developed. What is more, it may become possible for people to live on the moon someday. Pending future developments, there is a lively Internet trade in deeds to pieces of the moon, available at bargain prices. The legality of this form of private enterprise is obviously debatable, and yet... Bik Van der Pol took as core item of the project one of the oldest objects in the collection of the Rijksmuseum: a moon rock. The crew of the first manned lunar landing mission, Apollo 11, brought this rock back to earth in 1969. That same year the three astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin, and Michael Collins visited the Netherlands. Willem Drees, a former Dutch prime minister, received the rock on that occasion as a present from the United States ambassador. And later, this piece of stone was donated to the Rijksmuseum. The moon rock creates links between the site of the museum, the city, the collection and its own origins. These links are examined from various perspectives. In the background are questions concerning the public and private significance of a collection, as well as questions of public interest.

Book Description: HE WAS THE THIRD MAN TO WALK ON THE MOON— BUT THE FIRST TO DANCE ON IT. HE WAS THE ROCKETMAN. For Pete Conrad, it was all about the ride. Whether he was hot-dogging at Mach 2, test-flying every supersonic jet the Navy developed (and some they shouldn’t have), orbiting the Earth at almost 20,000 mph, or redlining his Corvette, he loved pushing the envelope. Pete wasn’t the squeaky-clean astronaut poster boy. The guy every NASA pilot wanted to happy-hour with after work—and would kill to fly with—Pete had a natural outspokenness that got him washed out of the Mercury program. But the “Comeback Kid” came roaring back—flying two Gemini missions, walking on the Moon as commander of Apollo 12, commanding the first Skylab, and logging more time in space than all the original astronauts combined. This is a surprisingly candid insider’s view of the greatest ride in history: America’s glorious race to the stars, as seen through the eyes of a real space cowboy.

Book Description: Ambition brought the Police together. It also tore them apart – but not before they became the biggest band in the world and the first supergroup of the Eighties. In Walking on the Moon Chris Campion tells the full, uncensored story of their spectacular rise. Written with a fan’s eye for detail this no-holds-barred account follows the band from their early struggle to make a mark in the volatile late 70’s punk scene, through their emergence – masterminded with the help of legendary manager Miles Copeland III – as an international rock phenomenon. Walking on the Moon features for the first time the arduous touring and recording schedule that saw the band crack America, the unorthodox business strategies that catapulted them to the top, and the bouts of infighting that caused their early demise. Campion details the shock 2007 reunion that saw them re-emerge as a global touring spectacle after a 20-year hiatus from the music industry and explores how the band members’ conflicting personalities and the chaotic personal life of frontman Sting informed some of their biggest hits. Much more than simply an entertaining romp, the book offers insightful critical analysis of the broader factors that enabled the Police’s success, and reveals a band struggling to balance commercial ambition with a desire for artistic credibility. Walking on the Moon is an epic tale of Eighties rock and the role played within it by one of the biggest names in music: The Police.A former contributing editor to Dazed & Confused and Vice magazines, and a writer for the Observer, the Daily Telegraph and Bizarre, Chris Campion has reported on the world of popular culture for almost two decades.
