BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE; KNOWLEDGE OF LIFE: Alejandro Rodriguez
Nobody wants to fail. But maybe we’ve got the idea of failure all wrong. Maybe it´s not something to avoid, but something to strive for. In this hour, Sarah Lewis talks with Anne Strainchamps about her book, The Rise: Creativity, The Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery. Next, Eric Jarosinski talks with Steve Paulson about his transformation from a self-described ´´failed intellectual´´ to Twitter´s lovable and popular misanthrope. Then, Frank Pavich talks about his new documentary, Jodorowsky´s Dune, which chronicles filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky´s failed quest to make what could have been one of the greatest science-fiction movies ever. After that, Nicola Griffith recommends Robin McKinley´s The Blue Sword. Finally, the World Cup is on our minds this week so we revisit Steve Paulson´s conversation with Franklin Foer re his book, How Soccer Explains the World: An Unlikely Theory of Globalization.

TAROT / SPIRITUALITY Alejandro Jodorowsky s profound study of the Tarot, which began in the early 1950s, reveals it to be far more than a simple divination system. The Tarot is first and foremost a powerful instrument of self-knowledge and a representation of the structure of the soul. The Way of Tarot shows that the entire deck is structured like a temple, or a mandala, which is both an image of the world and a representation of the divine. The authors use the sacred art of the original Marseille Tarot--created during a time of religious tolerance in the 11th century--to reconnect with the roots of the Tarot s Western esoteric wisdom. They explain that the Tarot is a ?nomadic cathedral? whose parts--the 78 cards or ?arcana?--should always be viewed with an awareness of the whole structure. This understanding is essential to fully grasp the Tarot s hermetic symbolism. The authors explore the secret associations behind the hierarchy of the cards and the correspondences between the suits and energies within human beings. Each description of the Major Arcana includes key word summaries, symbolic meanings, traditional interpretations, and a section where the card speaks for itself. Jodorowsky and Costa then take the art of reading the Tarot to a depth never before possible. Using their work with Tarology, a new psychological approach that uses the symbolism and optical language of the Tarot to create a mirror image of the personality, they offer a powerful tool or self-realization, creativity, and healing. ALEJANDRO JODOROWSKY is a filmmaker who made the legendary El Topo and The Holy Mountain. He also is a psychotherapist and author of many books on Tarot and spiritualism, including Psychomagic and The Spiritual Journey of Alejandro Jodorowsky. MARIANNE COSTA has worked with Jodorowsky since 1997, coteaching workshops on Tarot and family-tree therapy. She is the author of No Woman s Land. Both authors live in Paris.

´´Dr. Gundry is a true trailblazer, always at the forefront of scientific knowledge. The Plant Paradox shows the world what pioneer thinking is about and is a must-read book for anyone interested in being as healthy as nature has designed them to be.´´ -Alejandro Junger MD, New York Times bestselling author of Clean, Clean Gut and Clean Eats ´´The Plant Paradox elegantly explains how plants defend themselves from being consumed by humans, and how eating the wrong ones at the wrong times immeasurably hurts our health. An eye-opening read.´´ -Mehmet Oz, MD, Professor of Surgery, New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Most of us have heard of gluten-a protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. But what if we´ve been missing the root of the problem? In The Plant Paradox, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common, and highly toxic, plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the ´´gluten-free´´ foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are designed by nature to protect them from predators (including humans). Once ingested, they incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions. At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in The Plant Paradox, he shares this clinically proven program with readers around the world. The simple (and daunting) fact is, lectins are everywhere. Thankfully, Dr. Gundry offers simple hacks we easily can employ to avoid them, including: Peel your veggies. Most of the lectins are contained in the skin and seeds of plants; simply peeling and de-seeding vegetables (like tomatoes and peppers) reduces their lectin content. Shop for fruit in season. Fruit contain fewer lectins when ripe, so eating apples, berries, and other lectin-containing fruits at the peak of ripeness helps minimize your lectin consumption. Swap your brown rice for white. Whole grains and seeds with hard outer coatings are designed by nature to cause digestive distress-and are full of lectins. With a full list of lectin-containing foods and simple substitutes for each, a step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious lectin-free recipes, The Plant Paradox illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl-and shows you how to eat whole foods in a whole new way.

La apasionante biografía de Lola Montes como la falsa española que quiso ser reina. Muchos han oído hablar de Lola Montes, pero pocos saben en realidad quién fue: una bailarina aventurera y gran viajera que encandiló a toda una época, una mujer adelantada a su tiempo que vivió una vida de novela. Con una inteligencia y belleza arrolladoras, Lola fue capaz de reinventarse y luchar para salir adelante en un mundo de hombres. Bajo una falsa identidad, su vida fue una sucesión de excentricidades y escándalos. Sin apenas conocimientos de baile logró llegar a lo más alto como bailarina, debutando en los teatros más importantes de las capitales europeas. Se codeó con los literatos, políticos, músicos y aristócratas más populares de la época, como Alejandro Dumas padre, George Sand o el músico Liszt, con quien vivió un intenso romance. Y, sobre todo, enamoró al rey Luis I de Baviera, quien la hizo condesa y acabó abdicando por ella. Divina Lola nos traslada a escenarios exóticos y remotos, desde su Irlanda natal a la India, donde vivió en Calcuta y Dinapore; a ciudades como París, Londres, Múnich, donde deslumbró con sus ´´bailes españoles´´, y a las peligrosas tierras de California y Australia, donde vivió como una intrépida pionera. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The fascinating biography of Lola Montes, the fake Spaniard who wanted to be queen. Many have heard of Lola Montes, but few know who she really was: an adventurous dancer and world traveler who dazzled an entire era, a woman ahead of her time who lived a fairytale life. With great intelligence and breathtaking beauty, Lola was able to reinvent herself and become successful in a world led by men. Under a false identity, her life was a series of eccentricities and scandals. With very little dancing knowledge and abilities, she managed to become a top dancer, debuting in the most prominent theaters in Europe. Her social circle was filled with the most popular writers, politicians, musicians, and nobles of the time, such as Alexander Dumas, George Sand, or the musician Liszt, with whom she had a passionate love affair. And, above all, she made King Ludwig I of Bavaria fall in love with her; he named her Countess and ended up abdicating the throne for her.
