Out of My Mind by WJ de Kock Summary
We need a whole new mind to thrive in the twenty-first century, says Daniel Pink. As theologians we cannot escape the transition from the information age to the conceptual age of the twenty-first century. In the information age the theologian could give answers based on the best information, but in the twenty-first century information is on hand. Empathy and understanding however are in scant supply today. In the information age there was no room for doubt; certainty was the hallmark of a successful information worker. But today uncertainty is a certainty, thanks to globalization, the information revolution and even quantum mechanics. Uncertainty has been grafted into our collective consciousness. It therefore cannot be theological business as usual. It cannot be about giving answers; it is more about finding the best questions to be answered. It cannot be about winning theological arguments; it is more about living in God's regenerative story while we find ourselves in the liminal space of uncertainty. It cannot be about holding strong opinions; it is more about creating space for life, to allow God's generosity to flow through us. Out of My Mind tells the story of such a transition.
Out of My Mind by Dollar Kidd Summary
Using poetry to express life's trials and triumphs, author Dollar Kidd offers a collection of poetry with a unique approach in Out of My Mind. The work intimately explores Kidd's life and experiences, while the comments following each selection from both Kidd and his online readers, provide additional background from which to understand and appreciate each poem. In Winter Night, he writes, / As I turn into my drive / I see a woman standing aside / She stands with her arms at her side / Dressed in solid black / Low cut neck, in a V to her breasts / Sleeves cover her hands / But split up past the wrists / Her long dark hair covers her shoulders / Often infused with raw emotion, the poems in Out of My Mind not only share Kidd's inner thoughts and ideas, but also demonstrate that positive outcomes can emerge from negative situations.
Out of My Mind by Out of My Mind Summary
OUT OF MY MIND is a delightful, eclectic collection of engaging narratives by author Martha Wood. These were developed as the author's mind was, as she puts it, "Set free to play." Written in short story style, some of the anecdotes are amusing, as in Funny Names, or Things I Always Wanted to Do, But Thank God I Haven't; some serious like It Shouldn't Hurt..., or The "N" Word; some fictional such as Elizabeth, the Queen, or Treasures from the Attic; some poignant as in No One Ever Says, "Hi," or Where Sorrow and Gladness Meet; while yet others are instructive like Dealing with the Odor, and Until We Eat Again. For a little mystery, there is The Gunslinger, and Congratulations on a Dedicated Life. All, though, give voice to thoughts set free and permitted expression.
OUT OF MY MIND by Pila Hall Summary
On the surface these koan-like reflections appear to be amusing word games, but each one exposes and probes layers of human nature in pursuit of the examined life. A mind sensitive to its own foibles might recognize in these meditations a novel aid to introspection, inviting the reader’s focused participation, while the tone of self-mockery releases tension through laughter.
Drive Me Out of My Mind by Chad Faries Summary
Drive Me Out of My Mind is a coming-of-age story of wildness and wandering set primarily in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan—its abandoned iron mines, desperate small towns, and heart-breaking bars. It’s the memoir of a boy raised by lawless and itinerant women and how he was cultured—and corrupted—by their hard-living, hard-drinking, and hard-loving ways. Given this lot in life, Faries tells how one boy was hurt into becoming a poet at the ripe age of two—to imagine another world other than the daily madness in front of him—a world where violent stalkers hovered over the hospital beds of women as they gave birth, where father figures also copulated with Gramma, where a worn Barbie doll was a main source of comfort, and where home meant 24 anonymous hovels in 10 years.
55 Years Out of My Mind by Bill Hausman Summary
The Workin' Man's Cookbook is the kind of book Al Bundy would have written. He said a long time ago it was wrong to be French. The book is politically incorrect, chauvinistic, rude, and downright funny. It was written for you lunk-heads out there who can't even boil an egg. The recipes are good, for the most part inexpensive, and the directions are easy to follow. After a couple of six packs, you'll enjoy this book even if you don't cook.

Out of My Mind by Shalom Camenietzki Summary
"A psychologist's account of his own experience with bipolar disorder. On paper, psychologist Dr. Shalom Camenietzski seemed to have it all--a beautiful family, a thriving practice, and supportive friends and colleagues. But in reality, he lived a life of turmoil--obsessive daydreams of taking his life, flamboyant periods of mania, disturbing acts of violence against his wife and son, and various episodes of psychosis, one of which would see him speeding his car the wrong way up Toronto's Gardiner Expressway. Able to understand the clinical profile of his bipolar disorder, he was nonetheless powerless to stop it. A fascinating account of a "mentally disordered healer," Out of My Mind reveals the strengths and fallibilities of traditional psychotherapies and shows how Dr. Camenietzki finally obtained a symptom-free life. Shalom Camenietzki is a registered psychologist and psychotherapist with forty years of clinical experience. In addition to his professional background, he has published numerous fictional works, including The Atheist's Bible. He lives in Toronto."--
Out of My Mind by Alan Arkin Summary
Alan Arkin, one of the most beloved and accomplished actors of our time, reveals a side of himself not often shown on stage or screen. Like many teenagers, 16-year-old Alan Arkin had it all figured out. Then came young adulthood, and with it a wave of doubt so strong it caused him to question everything he thought he knew about himself and the world. Ever skeptical and full of questions, Arkin embarked on a spiritual journey to find something—anything—to believe in. An existential crisis in his 30s led him to the study of Eastern philosophy. Soon he began opening himself to the possibility that there was more to life than what he had simply seen, heard, or been taught. In this "mini-memoir," the 84-year-old actor shares his powerful spiritual experiences, from his brush with reincarnation to the benefits of meditation. In a gruff, earthy voice that sounds more suited to a New York cabbie than a spiritual guide, he shows us that wisdom can come from the most unexpected places and teachers. Out of My Mind is a candid, relatable, and delightfully irreverent take on how one man went searching for meaning and ended up discovering himself.
