Don't know who Tom Shadyac is? As a writer and a director, Shadyac first unleashed Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Nutty Professor remake on the world, and then a string of film fiascoes, but that's all behind him now. A bike accident left him with a host of debilitating maladies and brought him to the verge of suicide, so he took stock of his life and set out on a quest to answer some of life's greatest questions. What's wrong with the world? How do we go about fixing it? Is the fundamental nature of man essentially benevolent or cruel? So he traveled around, enlisting the aid of what he calls "significant minds" --journalists, scientists, spiritual leaders, scholars--to understand life's essential questions. "I Am" is his documentary about this quest
Unequal protection : the rise of corporate dominance and the theft of human rights by Thom Hartmann( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thom Hartmann tells a startling story that will forever change your understanding of American history. The Fourteenth Amendment--created to grant basic rights to freed slaves--has been used by lawyers representing corporate interests to extend additional rights to businesses far more frequently than to freed slaves. In 1886, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations were "persons" entitled to the same rights granted to people. Since this ruling, America has lost the legal structures that allowed people to control corporate behavior. As a result, the largest transnational corporations fill a role today that has historically been filled by kings. They control most of the world's wealth and exert power over the lives of most of the world's citizens. They've become the rudder that steers the ship of much human experience, and they're steering it by their prime value--growth and profit at any expense--a value that has become destructive for life on Earth.--From publisher description
Screwed : the undeclared war against the middle class--and what we can do about it by Thom Hartmann( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Air America Radio host Thom Hartmann shows that over the last twenty-five years, we've witnessed an undeclared war against the middle class. The so-called conservatives waging this war are only interested in conserving - and steadily increasing - their own wealth and power. Hartmann shows how, under the guise of "freeing" the market, they've systematically dismantled the programs set up by both Republicans and Democrats to protect the middle class and have replaced them with policies that favor only the privileged few."--Jacket
Legacy of secrecy : the long shadow of the JFK assassination by Lamar Waldron( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John F. Kennedy's assassination launched a frantic search to find his killers. It also launched a flurry of covert actions by Lyndon Johnson, Robert F. Kennedy, and other top officials to hide the fact that in November 1963 the United States was on the brink of invading Cuba, as part of a JFK-authorized coup. The coup plan's exposure could have led to a nuclear confrontation with Russia, but the cover-up prevented a full investigation into Kennedy's assassination--a legacy of secrecy that would impact American politics and foreign policy for the next 45 years. It also allowed two men who confessed their roles in JFK's murder to be involved in the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, in 1968. Exclusive interviews and newly declassified files from the National Archives document in chilling detail how three mob bosses were able to prevent the truth from coming to light--until now.--Publisher description
The Edison gene : ADHD and the gift of the hunter child by Thom Hartmann( Book )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thomas Edison was expelled from school for behavior that today would label him as having Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), but his mother understood how to salvage his self-esteem and prepare him for a lifetime of success. The creativity, impulsiveness, and distractibility that are characteristic of ADHD are not signs of a disorder at all, but instead are components of a highly adaptive and useful skill set that well served our hunting and gathering ancestors. In The Edison Gene Thom Hartmann shows that these characteristics have also been critical to the survival and development of our modern civilization and will be vital and necessary as humanity faces new challenges in the future." "Hartmann, creator of the "hunter versus farmer" theory of ADHD, examines the latest discoveries confirming the existence of an ADHD gene and the global catastrophe 40,000 years ago that triggered its development. Citing examples of significant innovators in our modern era, he argues that the children who possess the "Edison gene" have neurology that is wired to give them brilliant success as innovators, inventors, explorers, and entrepreneurs. Hartmann offers parents concrete strategies for helping their Edison-gene children to reach their full potential and shows that rather than being "problems," such children are an important and vital gift to our society and the world."--Jacket
Threshold : the crisis of Western culture by Thom Hartmann( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An urgent look at our world's looming crises and what we must do to avert them. In this book the author and Air America host looks at the deteriorating state of our planet, where the dynamics of environmental, economic and population change are boiling over the limits within which society can function. He busts the myths and ideologies of religious fundamentalism, capitalism run amok, male domination, and militarism that are draining our world of its natural and human resources and engendering the suffering of millions for the benefit of the few. No mere jeremiad, this book examines cultures that have thrived, from the mother city of Caral, Peru, to modern Denmark, and targets five areas of policy (national, religious, economic, corporate, and environmental) for specific and immediate reform. It illustrates the mistakes we have made, as a culture, as a country, and as individuals, and provides the inspiration and motivation readers are looking for to build a better, more sustainable world for all. Part prophecy, part call to arms, part policy prescription, this is the wake-up call our society so badly needs

24 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While everything appears to be collapsing around us - ecodamage, genetic engineering, virulent diseases, the end of cheap oil, water shortages, global famine, wars - we can still do something about it and create a world that will work for us and for our children's children. The inspiration for Leonardo DiCaprio's web movie Global Warning, The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight details what is happening to our planet, the reasons for our culture's blind behavior, and how we can fix the problem. Thom Hartmann's book, originally published in 1998, has become one of the fundamental handbooks of the environmental activist movement. Now, with updated material and a focus on political activism and its effect on corporate behavior, The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight helps us understand - and heal - our relationship to the world, to each other, and to our natural resources."--BOOK JACKET

He traces in particular the history of democracy in the United States, identifies the most prevalent myths about it, and offers an inspiring yet realistic plan for transforming the political landscape and reviving Jefferson's dream before it is too late."--Jacket

Unequal protection : how corporations became "people"--and you can fight back by Thom Hartmann( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synopsis: Unequal Protection: The Rise of Corporate Dominance and the Theft of Human Rights. Was the Boston Tea Party the first WTO-style protest against transnational corporations? Did Supreme Court sell out America's citizens in the nineteenth century, with consequences lasting to this day? Is there a way for American citizens to recover democracy of, by, and for the people? Thom Hartmann takes on these most difficult questions and tells a startling story that will forever change your understanding of American history. He begins by uncovering an original eyewitness account of the Boston Tea Party and demonstrates that it was provoked not by "taxation without representation" as is commonly suggested but by the specific actions of the East India Company, which represented the commercial interests of the British elite. Hartmann then describes the history of the Fourteenth Amendment created at the end of the Civil War to grant basic rights to freed slaves and how it has been used by lawyers representing corporate interests to extend additional rights to businesses far more frequently than to freed slaves. Prior to 1886, corporations were referred to in U S law as "artificial persons" but in 1886, after a series of cases brought by lawyers representing the expanding railroad interests, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations were "persons" and entitled to the same rights granted to people under the Bill of Rights. Since this ruling, America has lost the legal structures that allowed for people to control corporate behavior. As a result, the largest transnational corporations fill a role today that has historically been filled by kings. They control most of the world's wealth and exert power over the lives of most of the world's citizens. Their CEOs are unapproachable and live lives of nearly unimaginable wealth and luxury. They've become the rudder that steers the ship of much human experience, and they're steering it by their prime value-growth and profit and any expense-a value that has become destructive for life on Earth. This new feudalism was not what our Founders-Federalists and Democratic Republicans alike-envisioned for America. It's time for "we, the people" to take back our lives. Hartmann proposes specific legal remedies that could truly save the world from political, economic, and ecological disaster
Walking your blues away : how to heal the mind and create emotional well-being by Thom Hartmann( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HEALTH / HEALING "This book is a prescription for mental wellness that has no bad side effects. Walking, like drawing, is a human activity that calms the brain and induces insight. ... Buy several copies--you'll be handing this book out to friends."--Betty Edwards, author of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Our bodies usually heal rapidly from an illness, injury, or wound. Yet our minds and hearts often suffer for years with debilitating symptoms of distress or upset. Why is it so hard for our minds and hearts to heal? One simple key to healing them can be just a short walk away. Walking--a bilateral therapy that has been a part of human life throughout history--allows people to heal emotionally as quickly as they do physically. Normally the brain converts our daily experiences into long-term memories. However, a traumatic experience can become "stuck" in the brain, unable to be stored as "memory" and persisting in the brain as if it were still a present-time event. Thom Hartmann explains that when we walk, which engages both sides of the body, we simultaneously activate both the left and right sides of the brain. This allows the brain's two hemispheres to join forces to break up brain patterning and allow the sufferer to release these distresses--from extreme but brief upsets to chronic conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. To achieve these results, Hartmann shows how we must learn to walk consciously, holding an awareness of the distress (or desire we hope to attain) in mind as we move. Using a variety of case studies, he demonstrates that it is possible to dissolve the rigidity of a traumatic memory or negative mind state in as little as a half hour's time. His techniques have proven successful in helping to alleviate rage resulting from a domestic dispute as well as the chronic traumas soldiers experience during war that are often locked away for decades. While the physical benefits of walking have long been recognized, its importance in promoting and maintaining mental health has only recently been rediscovered. Hartmann's deceptively simple, yet potent exercises allow us to create our own walking journeys to restore our mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being as well as rejuvenate our body's health. THOM HARTMANN is the award-winning, bestselling author of over a dozen books, including The Edison Gene, The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight, and Attention Deficit Disorder: A Different Perception. His groundbreaking work in ADD/ADHD and psychotherapy has been featured in TIME magazine, the New York Times, and in media around the world. He lives in Oregon
Rebooting the American dream : 11 ways to rebuild our country by Thom Hartmann( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the core of each is a call to reclaim economic sovereignty and to wrest control of democracy back from the corporate powers that have hijacked both America and her citizens. What's particularly unique about Hartmann's solutions is that all have been proven to work. Every single one of his 11 steps either was historically part of what built Americars's greatness in the past (such as enforcing the Sherman Act and breaking up big corporations or returning to a tariff-based trade policy), or has worked well in other nations (like a national single-payer healthcare system -Medicare Part "E" for "Everybody"--Or encouraging the growth of worker-owned cooperatives like the $6 billion Mondragon cooperative in Spain). Hartmann's solutions are essentially nonpartisan. Virtually all have been promoted at one time or another in American history by both political parties, although today most (but not all) fall into the realm of "progressive solutions." Both Ralph Nader and Pat Buchanan will find broad areas of agreement with this book. From addressing the problem of a warming globe to the death of America's middle class to the loss of our essential liberties, Rebooting The American Dreamshows how America can reclaim the vision of our Founders and the greatness we held both at home and abroad for over a century
The American Revolution of 1800 by Dan Sisson( Book )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provides the definitive window into key concepts that have formed the backdrop of our democracy: the nature of revolution, stewardship of power, liberty, and the ever-present danger of factions and tyranny. Most contemporary historians celebrate Jefferson's victory over Adams in 1800--which Jefferson firmly maintained was "as real a revolution ... as that of 1776--as the beginning of the two-party system, but Sisson believes it is entirely the wrong lesson. Jefferson saw his election as a peaceful revolution by the American people overturning an elitist faction that was stamping out cherished constitutional rights and trying to transform our young democracy into an authoritarian state. If anything, our current two-party system is a repudiation of Jefferson's theory of revolution, and his earnest desire that the people as a whole, not any faction or clique, would triumph in government
