Illustrated with 24 plates of maps and diagrams and 13 photographs

"Originally published in Germany in 1955, and in England and the United States in 1958, this classic memoir of WWII by a man who was an acknowledged military genius and probably Germany's top WWII general, is now made available again. Field Marshal Erich von Manstein described his book as a personal narrative of a soldier, discussing only those matters that had direct bearing on events in the military field. The essential thing, as he wrote, is to "know how the main personalities thought and reacted to events." This is what he tells us in this book. His account is detailed, yet dispassionate and objective. "Nothing is certain in war, when all is said and done," But in Manstein's record, at least, we can see clearly what forces were in action. In retrospect, perhaps his book takes on an even greater significance."-Print Ed.

Divided into chapters channeling each body area and its common ailments and aches—including those on our pets—and fully illustrated, In Focus Reiki teaches the basics to this increasingly popular practice to reduce stress, depression, anxiety, and physical pain and tap into your inner healer.

Combined from the Japanese words Rei, meaning "God's wisdom, universal life, or higher power" and Ki, meaning "life force or energy," reiki is the healing practice of balancing our "universal life energy" around our bodies. Founded in the early twentieth century by Japanese Buddhist monk Mikao Usui with the underlying belief that our bodies have the natural ability to heal, reiki transfers healing energy by using the placement of hands to blocked areas.

The In Focus series applies a modern approach to teaching the classic body, mind, and spirit subjects, using expert authors in their respective fields and featuring relevant visual material to smartly and purposely illustrate key topics within each subject. As a bonus, seven illustrated meditation cards based on reiki principles are also included to give readers a quick, go-to reference guide containing the most important information on the subject, for easy practice and retention.
