Anyone interested in understanding themselves, their purpose in life, and how to go about achieving it will find a treasure trove in Letters to My Future Children. With roots reaching centuries into the past, while written for a future generation, these beautiful letters are firmly grounded in the present, in our cultural and existential anxieties and ennui. They are composed by a compelling voice, a true voice that consistently enlightens and illuminates. Curious listeners will find a dazzling philosophy that gently but persuasively explains not only how to live life but how to perceive it, and themselves, in the grand scheme of things. Wisdom seekers will recognize the voices of Vedic sages, the Buddha, Lao Tzu, Guru Nanak, Kung Fu Tse, Jesus, and many more. Letters to My Future Children is a reflection of humanity’s greatest truths. It is as necessary as it is timely. For all its genius, this powerful little audiobook may be at its most brilliant in its form - that is, letters to a future generation, to a better version of ourselves. These letters do not make a scholarly argument, though scholarship informs them to a great degree. They do not preach dogma, thus making the message as approachable as it is profound. They do not demand the listener adopt the philosophy as their own beliefs, though it is sound and worthy of consideration. They are simply the words of a father talking to his children, who generously and unselfishly allows us to listen in on what is nothing short of an inspirational conversation. Letters to My Future Children is some of our most ancient wisdom gift wrapped in gorgeous prose. What a marvelous gift from a parent to their children. What a marvelous gift to us all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Saethon Williams.

Critic-producer Nat Segaloff was granted access to private papers, production records, never-before-published interviews, and specialized archives in reconstructing the colorful, touching, and sometimes scandalous stories behind the making of the last films of some of Hollywood's top directors. Winningly readable and yet meticulously researched, its substantial entries range from Robert Aldrich and Robert Altman to Peter Yates and Fred Zinnemann, and John Ford and Howard Hawks to Otto Preminger and Richard Brooks. Certain to attract controversy because of whom it ignores as well as whom it includes, Final Cuts presents fifty widely varied chronicles of success and failure, inspiration and ennui, elation and heartache, and every other emotion enjoyed or endured by the greatest filmmakers that Hollywood ever knew. About the Author Nat Segaloff always wanted to write and produce, but it took him several careers before he learned how to get paid for it. He was a journalist for The Boston Herald covering the motion picture business, but has also variously been a studio publicist (Fox, UA, Columbia), college teacher (Boston University, Boston College), on-air TV talent (Group W), entertainment critic (CBS radio) and author (nine books including Hurricane Billy: The Stormy Life and Films of William Friedkin and, as co-author, Love Stories: Hollywood's Most Romantic Movies). He has contributed career monographs on screenwriters Stirling Silliphant, Walon Green, Paul Mazursky and John Milius to the University of California Press's acclaimed Backstory series, and his writing has appeared in such varied periodicals as Film Comment, Written By, International Documentary, Animation Magazine, The Christian Science Monitor, Time Out (US), MacWorld, and American Movie Classics Magazine. He was also senior reviewer for AudiobookCafe.com. His The Everything® Etiquette Book and The Everything Trivia Book and The Everything® Tall Tales, Legends and Outrageous Lies Book are in multiple printings for Adams Media Corp. As a TV writer-producer, Segaloff helped perfect the format and create episodes for A&E's flagship 'Biography' series. His distinctive productions include John Belushi: Funny You Should Ask; Shari Lewis & Lamb Chop; Larry King: Talk of Fame; Darryl F. Zanuck: Twentieth Century-Filmmaker and Stan Lee: The ComiX-MAN! He has written and co-produced the Rock 'n' Roll Moments music documentaries for The Learning Channel/Malcolm Leo Productions, and has written and/or produced programming for New World, Disney, Turner and USA Networks. He is co-creator/co-producer of Judgment Day with Grosso-Jacobson Communications Corp. for HBO. His extraterrestrial endeavors include the cheeky sequel to the Orson Welles 'Invasion From Mars' radio hoax, When Welles Collide, which featured a 'Star Trek'® cast. It was produced by L.A. Theatre Works and has become a Halloween tradition on National Public Radio. In 1996 he formed the multi-media production company Alien Voices® with actors Leonard Nimoy and actor John de Lancie and produced five best-selling, fully dramatized audio plays for Simon & Schuster: The Time Machine, Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Lost World, The Invisible Man and The First Men in the Moon, all of which feature 'Star Trek'® casts. Additionally, his teleplay for The First Men in the Moon was the first-ever TV/Internet simulcast and was presented live by The Sci-Fi Channel. He has also written narrative concerts for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, celebrity events, is a script consultant, and was a contributing writer to Moving Pictures magazine.

As millennials we stand accused--of aimlessness, entitlement, indifference, lack of gratitude--merely for existing under the wrong conditions, for illustrating simply by that fact the wrongness of those conditions. This book offers an apologia for an entire generation. It is not so much a solution to our problems as an orientation allowing us to face them. It provides a way of understanding ourselves, leading us to see what our increasingly economic mode of being has lopped off and discarded. We have inherited a deformed anthropology, an inane status quo, for which we have been told we ought to be thankful. We need to rediscover meaning in a world that has become a matter of indifference to us. It will take work, it won't be easy, and it will have to start with our generation. 'A provocative re-orientation to the spirit and outlook of millennials; a testimony of faith from a generation not supposed to have any.'--NATHAN SCHNEIDER, journalist and author of Thank You, Anarchy: Notes from the Occupy Apocalypse 'Daniel Schwindt is one of those very unusual 'young voices' whose writing calls up very old questions: Why is our freedom in fact a form of exile? Why has the very concept of adulthood become meaningless? Why have our schools become 'our mental cancer'? Both radical and mindful of the radical nature of tradition, these short essays set off fireworks that signal the debut of a remarkable young social critic.'--ELIAS CRIM, founder and publisher, Solidarity Hall 'Daniel Schwindt has demonstrated with incisive clarity and sobriety that a spiritual life is a real life. He does not flatter, cajole, or seduce the reader; neither does he treat him or her to the fruits of his subjective impressions. He knows that the world is hard, that time is short, that we have all been disinherited, but that there is nonetheless a clear way to proceed. Solid, relevant, perceptive, uncompromising, compassionate without sentimentality, not a word out of place.'--CHARLES UPTON, author of The System of Antichrist: Truth and Falsehood in Postmodernism and the New Age 'Daniel Schwindt in a very brief book has produced a very powerful message. With an economy of expression that is nearly aphoristic, he has constructed a work that simultaneously grabs our hearts and our intellects. His words penetrate the web of lies that largely comprises modern life, as in brief but eloquent prose he deconstructs many of the shibboleths of the modern world, thereby clearing a path to the heart of our predicament. And, having shown us how we got there, he then suggests the way out. I hope that every member of Daniel's generation will read this book. And every member of my own as well.'--JOHN C. MÉDAILLE, author of Toward a Truly Free Market: A Distributist Perspective on the Role of Government, Taxes, Health Care, Deficits, and More 'In There Must Be More Than This, Daniel Schwindt gives utterance to the previously unarticulated existential ennui that plagues the so-called 'millennial' generation. Like a true doctor of souls, he diagnoses the various spiritual diseases afflicting it: affluence and its accompanying spiritual desolation; disillusionment with the hollow reality of the 'American dream'; the failure of religious, cultural, and political traditions to live up to their promises of a truly authentic engagement with life; and the technological colonization of the human person. In short, Schwindt describes with penetrating insight the 'existential self-centeredness' characteristic of postmodern existence, which results in a 'verbal universe' void of meaning and significance. But he is not without hope. He proposes an alternative, calling us to deep engagement with the cosmological
