f prison and into homelessness. By the time they reunited. years later. in the parking lot of a grocery store. she was an All-American goalkeeper at the University of Washington and already a budding prospect for the U.S. national team. He was living in the woods.Despite harboring serious doubts even about the provenance of her fathers last name (and her own). Solo embraces him as fiercely as she pursues her dreams of being a world-class soccer player. When those dreams are threatened by her standing within the national team. as when she was famously benched in the semifinals of the 2007 World Cup after four shutouts and spoke her piece publicly. we see a woman of uncompromising independence and hard-won perseverance navigate the petty backlash against her. For the first time. she tells her version of that controversial episode. and offers with it a full understanding of her hard-scrabble life.Moving. sometimes shocking. Solo is a portrait of an athlete finding redemption. This is the
My family doesnt do happy endings. We do sad endings or frustrating endings or no endings at all. We are hardwired to expect the next interruption or disappearance or broken promise.Hope Solo is the face of the modern female athlete. She is fearless. outspoken. and the best in the world at what she does: protecting the goal of the U.S. womens soccer team. Her outsized talent has led her to the pinnacle of her sportthe Olympics and the World Cupand made her into an international celebrity who is just as likely to appear on ABCs Dancing with the Stars as she is on the covers of Sports Illustrated.

Many appreciate Richard P. Feynman’s contributions to twentieth-century physics. but few realize how engaged he was with the world around him-how deeply and thoughtfully he considered the religious. political. and social issues of his day. In this collection of lectures that Richard Feynman originally gave in 1963. unpublished during his lifetime. the Nobel Prize-winning physicist discusses several mega questions of science. What is the nature of the tension between science and religious faith? Why does uncertainty play such a crucial role in the scientific imagination? Is this really a scientific age? What explains our universal fascination with flying saucers. faith healing. and telepathy? Marked by Feynman’s characteristic combination of rationality and humor. these lectures provide an intimate glimpse at the man behind the legend. At the start of his final lecture he says. „I dedicate this lecture to showing what ridiculous conclusions and rare statements such a man as myself can make.” Rare. perhaps. and irreverent. sure. But ridiculous? Not even close. This is quintessential Feynman-reflective. amusing. and ever enlightening.
