Chance Of A Lifetime

by Grace Anselmo D'Amato, Chance Of A Lifetime Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Chance Of A Lifetime books, In her glory days -- the pivotal decades from Prohibition to the Jet Age -- Atlantic City was the nation's center of popular entertainment. Celebrities and tourists flocked to America's Playground while political corruption, illegal gambling, bootlegging, and prostitution were all sanctioned as part of the Atlantic City experience.Chance of a Lifetime explores the heyday of this resort -- a time when real-life excesses strain even the wildest imaginations and outrageous characters made it all happen. It is the time and place where American Cool was born, it was the first home of the Rat Pack and a haven where a down-and-out Frank Sinatra was always welcome -- and never forgot it.Beginning with the early attractions of the resort island, then exploring the power base of boss Nucky Johnson and later Skinny D'Amato and his famed 500 Club -- a venue that encapsulated everything good, bad, and fun about the resort town -- we are given a nostalgic tour of the good-bad old days.This intimate and personal account of the city, the club and the famous and infamous people who passed through is told by insider Grace Anselmo D'Amato, whose husband managed the 500 Club for his brother Skinny. The reader can almost imagine sitting in a zebra-print booth at the old Five when she drops by to tell the storied history of this 20th-century playground by the sea. The book includes a foreword by the noted Atlantic City historian Vicki Gold Levi, who recounts her experiences as a teenager at the Five at its height in the '50s.Chance of a Lifetime is extensively illustrated with 178 rare pictures of celebrity, 500 Club, and historic Atlantic City images specially printed on 96 gallerypages -- with additional images throughout the text.In a place where more people came for sin than sun, Chance of a Lifetime details the rise and fall, and rise again, of Atlantic City's glorious glitz and guts.

The Experience Of A Lifetime

by Carolyn North, The Experience Of A Lifetime Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Experience Of A Lifetime books, Every one of us, without exception, is going to die. Yet most of us are fearful, in denial, or determined to beat the odds. Perhaps there is another way to confront our inevitable destiny. Could we not regard death as one stage of a natural life-death-life cycle in which what we call "death" is but one aspect of a larger "life"? Here are the stories of four people -- two men and two women -- whom the author accompanied as a healer as they prepared for their passages. It is about their experience, and about her experience as she watched them decline physically and emerge spiritually. It is about the caregiver's role and the reactions of family and friends; it is about resistance and accepting and coping. It is about the mortality that all of us must face -- about preparing for death physically, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. And at its deepest level, it is about learning how to love.
