Born Standing Up by N.a Summary

The riveting, mega-bestselling, beloved and highly acclaimed memoir of a man, a vocation, and an era named one of the ten best nonfiction titles of the year by Time and Entertainment Weekly. In the mid-seventies, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. This book is, in his own words, the story of “why I did stand-up and why I walked away.” Emmy and Grammy Award–winner, author of the acclaimed New York Times bestsellers Shopgirl and The Pleasure of My Company, and a regular contributor to The New Yorker, Martin has always been a writer. His memoir of his years in stand-up is candid, spectacularly amusing, and beautifully written. At age ten Martin started his career at Disneyland, selling guidebooks in the newly opened theme park. In the decade that followed, he worked in the Disney magic shop and the Bird Cage Theatre at Knott’s Berry Farm, performing his first magic/comedy act a dozen times a week. The story of these years, during which he practiced and honed his craft, is moving and revelatory. The dedication to excellence and innovation is formed at an astonishingly early age and never wavers or wanes. Martin illuminates the sacrifice, discipline, and originality that made him an icon and informs his work to this day. To be this good, to perform so frequently, was isolating and lonely. It took Martin decades to reconnect with his parents and sister, and he tells that story with great tenderness. Martin also paints a portrait of his times—the era of free love and protests against the war in Vietnam, the heady irreverence of The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in the late sixties, and the transformative new voice of Saturday Night Live in the seventies. Throughout the text, Martin has placed photographs, many never seen before. Born Standing Up is a superb testament to the sheer tenacity, focus, and daring of one of the greatest and most iconoclastic comedians of all time.

Black Book of Bliss by Rahul Chanday Summary

When we reach out to the first bright light of the morning sun and stretch our arms to embrace it, we will experience immense joy. We just need to stretch our arms, and to welcome it within every cell and our being with love and enthusiasm. We will need to let go of all the inhibitions and let loose of all restrictions. The more we practice doing this, the closer we get to believe that the whole universe resides in us, in you.” You are not a drop in an ocean but the entire ocean in a drop.” Happiness is not an achievement; it is a realization. It is not a destination; we sense it throughout our journey. Happiness doesn’t depend on what we have or what we don’t have, it depends on what we are deep within us. When we stop constantly fighting back with what we are, when we realize that we are imperfectly the most perfect human ever created in the history of mankind. We realize our uniqueness. We can never make or produce happiness; we can only discover it because it has always been there around us and in our totality. Pure bliss has never happened to anyone through achievements, it happens when we drop the very idea of running behind, even running behind happiness and then we realize that we are complete and total, exactly as we are. This is how I write my bliss in black and white…
