New York Times bestseller | “Thrilling, tender, utterly absorbing .
” —Cheryl StrayedFrom travel writer Jedidiah Jenkins comes a long-awaited memoir of adventure, struggle, and lessons learned while bicycling the 14,000 miles from Oregon to Patagonia.
On the eve of turning thirty, terrified of being funneled into a life he didn’t choose, Jedidiah Jenkins quit his dream job and spent the next sixteen months cycling from Oregon to Patagonia.
A soul-stirring read for the wanderer in each of us, To Shake the Sleeping Self is an unforgettable reflection on adventure, identity, and a life lived without regret.
He chronicled the trip on Instagram, where his photos and profound reflections on life soon attracted hundreds of thousands of followers and got him featured by National Geographic and The Paris Review.
In this unflinchingly honest memoir, Jed narrates the adventure that started it all: the people and places he encountered on his way to the bottom of the world, and the internal journey that prompted it.
As he traverses cities, mountains, and inner boundaries, Jenkins grapples with the questions of what it means to be an adult, his struggle to reconcile his sexual identity with his conservative Christian upbringing, and his belief in travel as a way to “wake us up” to life back home.

Self-focusing has been an area of active scientific investigation for nearly 50 years.
This book should be of interest to scientists and engineers working with lasers and their applications.
Self-focusing also can reduce the threshold for the occurrence of other nonlinear optical processes.
But it can be harnessed for the design of useful devices such as optical power limiters and switches.
There is thus a unifying theme between nonlinear optics and these other disciplines.
It also describes some modern advances in self-focusing theory including the influence of beam nonparaxiality on self-focusing collapse.
Among them are three reprinted key landmark articles published earlier.
This book presents a comprehensive treatment of this topic and reviews both theoretical and experimental investigations of self-focusing.
From a practical point of view, self-focusing effects impose a limit on the power that can be transmitted through a material medium.
Self-focusing often leads to damage in optical materials and is a limiting factor in the design of high-power laser systems.
At a formal level, the equations for self-focusing are equivalent to those describing Bose-Einstein condensates and certain aspects of plasma physics and hydrodynamics.
It also contains the first publication of the 1964 paper that describes the first laboratory observation of self-focusing phenomena with photographic evidence.
One of the goals of this book is to connect the extensive early literature on self-focusing, filament-ation, self-trapping, and collapse with more recent studies aimed at issues such as self-focusing of fs pulses, white light generation, and the generation of filaments in air with lengths of more than 10 km.
