In this eBook Self Help Lessons By Best Sellers is a synopsis is meant to provide you with self help lessons from various best-selling books that will be very helpful for a With this tale as inspiration, Fritsch peels back the curtain even more and spins a complex web of secrets and revelations that keep the audience engaged throughout. Humans are born with the potential to learn languages.

This ability does not leave us as we age. Retention of such a juvenile characteristic as the need or desire to communicate is called neoteny. Through language, we have achieved such goals as effective agriculture and the establishment of complex societies by means of our ability to name their components, such as tools or laws. Human communication is the most outwardly apparent sign of humanity’s potential for creativity and innovation. Such creativity also manifests itself in the production of music and other art forms.

Ultimately, a perpetually inquisitive human brain is likely to remain healthier—that is, more adaptable to new ideas—than that of someone who deliberately or otherwise stops learning. In a society where pet and particularly dog ownership is becoming more and more integrated into family and individual life, an aspect of pet ownership that all pet lovers must face is the passing of one’s beloved friend. As dog lovers encounter this difficult time, the grieving process proves itself as intricate, intimate, and individual as the grieving process one experiences when losing any human family member.

More so, in a dog-eat-dog world where even the smallest ounce of puppy love from a therapy or family dog can make the largest difference, these humorous tributes—sure to make readers laugh, cry, and remember all at the same time—are one author’s attempt to bring peace and healing to the lives of dog owners who have lost their best friend.

Natalie, a brilliant young computer science student, is raped by a footballer at their college. Familiar with trauma since her parents’ death, this latest tragedy triggers her usual response: disappearance. She hacks into government sites to change her identity, outs her attacker to the news, and escapes. She and Mario, a mentor hacker she befriends online, meet in the Sierras. Over hikes, confessions, and self-defense training, they fall in love. But their safety dissolves when Mario’s enemies locate them.

Natalie hides out in Seattle, then joins the military, deployed to Iraq, where she is further traumatized by war and more predatory men. Her wizard-like computer skills afford her a way out of the troubled country. Working at a firm outside of Washington, D. Christian artist and musician Harjo has constructed a thorough, thoughtful treatise focusing on the ideal relationship between human beings and God.

She begins with a basic view of that relationship, questioning the reader in clear, rational terms. Do we worship the stars or God who made them? Do we believe that worldly knowledge can save us, or must we look beyond, to an “authoritative Truth that cannot be compromised”? In what do we base our identity?

What is our ultimate, utmost purpose? By this means, the author stretches the mind beyond its usual realms of spiritual examination.

She is not eclectic but selective in her guidance towards leading a God-centered life. She decries some televangelism as a kind of religious “junk food” and suggests that certain sorts of worship emphasize apparent miracles and wonders rather than their source.

She warns that one can be a “nominal” Christian who simply takes in a few spoonsful of religion on a regular basis with the appeal of elaborate rituals, a phenomenon she calls “churchianity. Demonstrating the dichotomy between a life lived in two entirely different worlds, Jones holds nothing back in describing her own journey and providing a pathway for others to achieve the same level of peace.

At its core, the narrative is an opportunity to experience authentic introspection and tackle heavy topics like anger and resentment head-on. Using what he has learned in his thirty years of travel in the study of archaeological sites around the world, Kreger offers a comprehensive work that traces the origin of many of our holiday traditions to Neolithic beliefs.

The author constructs a “Wheel of Time”—”a complete and concise model of all the special days of the year observed by our ancestors and what they might have meant to them. Many illustrations of the wheel which emphasize and explain his premise are included.

Kreger also refers to literature, such as the writings of Julius Caesar, the Venerable Bede, and the various legends of King Arthur to further expound upon his conclusions. Using diligent research and an evident thirst for knowledge of her personal ancestry, author Fortnum has composed this chronicle presenting the highlights of the people and happenings in her mother’s family.

She knew that the family hailed from two villages in North Oxfordshire, England. She surmises that James may have been born a Quaker since there was a Quaker meeting in the area. His surname likely indicated his occupation. His son John, a weaver, had four boys and two girls, the girls having been mentioned in a will found in local annals. The Page surname flowed through the author’s ancestry until the generation following that of her grandfather, Harry James Page—a miller whose daughter Muriel, born in , met and married John Fortnum during the time of the Second World War.

The author was their child, born in She still resides in the house where she was born. Hemingway is credited with saying, “All good books have one thing in common—they are truer than if they had really happened. The literary conceit is simple enough: suppose the Germans had apprehended General Patton. However, the plot that follows is anything but simple, as the highest echelons of U.

Command plan an incredibly desperate mission to simultaneously hide his capture from the world and rescue the fabled warrior. In this celebration of color, the natural world, and the self, young readers enter a bright, beautiful world where imperfection leads to new creations: “Eek!

Wolves and pandas emerge from “drizzled drops of sprinkled gray. This novel is a highly imaginative romp through a world made of mediums, necromancers, werewolves, werebears, and naga-snakes. Then there is the sidhe, or faerie folk, who it seems are very ancient, very opulently attired, and given to petty court intrigues amped up to a ten.

Only her father has been dead for a long time, and his body looks twenty years younger. However, her appearance in Sierra Vista has kicked off an enormous host of paranormal beings intent on killing her. Fittingly titled, Starzinger’s poetry compilation stunningly captures the elapsing of time through a swirling array of loss and anguish, nostalgia and yearning, and a subtle reconciliation for what cannot be had once lost: time.

As the poet probes deeper, her poems become a commentary not only on the speaker’s state of being and experiences but also speak to a greater collective vortex of time and memories as they merge to become a fusion of love and regret.

Much of this charming collection by award-winning author Costanzo was inspired by visits to Sanibel Island off the western coast of Florida, a nature preserve that enjoins visitors with the sign, “Do Enjoy. Don’t Destroy. Her earliest memory of flower appreciation came when, as a child mostly surrounded by a cement-covered city, she derived joy from a tiny patch of greenery and wildflowers.

Her Slovakia-born grandmother gave her respect for the “tree” of family roots and connection. Costanzo found in Sanibel’s plant life, from the tiniest blossoms to the thorniest trees, not only beauty and natural vigor but a kind of communicative quality, evoking the fascinating meditations presented here.

A classic coffee table book is produced well enough to handle many touches and provide easy entertainment for both the casual browser and someone taking a more dedicated interest. Bossert’s book perfectly fits this description. This collection consists of nearly one hundred 3D photos taken at Disneyland. Most of the pictures are from the 50s and the 80s, with a few recent ones included near the book’s end.

This sturdy book also includes the 3D glasses necessary for viewing the photos. Additionally, opposite each photo is a description of the image and when it was taken. The images capture many of Disneyland’s classic monuments and provide a glimpse into how the park has changed.

In addition, looking at the visitors in the photos from the different decades opens a window into the changing dress and norms of the park’s many visitors. Damian Kurt is a teenage boy from a pious family.

It is so pious, in fact, that he believes his dead father to have been a saint and is writing his father’s biography in order to prove it. Damian also adheres to a firm belief that if he can achieve saintliness here on earth, he will one day be reunited with his father in heaven.

It’s a gigantic undertaking for the sensitive and troubled teen fighting the carnal instincts and desires of all teenage boys. With his father dead, a controlling and manipulative mother, and a household consisting of his grandmother, his ex-priest uncle, and two younger siblings, Damian finds he feels smothered.

After an accident lands him in the hospital and his mother finds and reads his journal aloud to him, Damian decides to leave home. But his time away is short-lived, and when his mother welcomes him with open arms and a tale of her own, he makes the fateful decision to join a monastery.

However, once he arrives at the monastery, he discovers that life there isn’t what he thought it would be. In fact, there are things going on that will challenge his faith forever. Contestants pay a two-dollar entry fee for a chance to win a billion. However, the odds of winning are astronomical, which is good as Sinclair doesn’t have the billion to pay a winner. Meanwhile, Dr. Lewis Cusac has moved to Boiling Springs to care for his dying niece and assume responsibility for her intellectually disabled eleven-year-old daughter, Cheeky.

Taking over a remedial math class at Gardner-Webb University, he must find a way to interest the students in mathematical concepts. When a student in his class states he’d like to learn about statistics to win the Billion Dollar Bracket, Cusac proposes to use the playoffs as a class project. Will this mathematician find a way to use statistics to win the bracket, and if so, how will Sinclair pay?

Twenty-seven-year-old Rose chooses adventure over conventionality when she leaves her safe American schoolteacher life and moves to Florence, Italy. There, in a tale that pays homage to stories of women heading to Italy in search of art, love, and adventure, such as Under the Tuscan Sun , Enchanted April , Three Coins in the Fountain , Roman Holiday , and Eat, Pray, Love , she buys a home, juggles two love interests, investigates an art history mystery reminiscent of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code , edges toward resolving her relationship with her demanding mother, and chooses her adult path forward.

Though the story takes place in , it spans six decades, commencing with a unique encounter in Provincetown, Massachusetts, between Joe Tink and Beth Sturgess, a sixteen-year-old who has run away from home and makes a living as a prostitute. Progressing through time and the vantage point of multiple characters, Danenbarger’s time-bending novel explores the depths of darkness in the human mind, taking readers through the backstories of the pertinent characters in an effort to help audiences understand the experiences and circumstances that create the litany of flawed characters.

In the midst of all the darkness, however, is a beacon of hope, highlighted by a seemingly magical and timely note that comes to Joe: “We dream of the better times. If we did not believe this, life would be unbearable.

In this book, readers enter a haunting world of jolting cross-generational secrets that span almost years. Readers enter the narratives of Anne Gautier, a struggling art intern, and Estelle, the Creole cousin and sister-in-law of Edgar Degas. Anne discovers an intimate journal written by a relative who knew Degas, which unlocks shocking, uncanny parallels between the past and the present.

As Anne ventures through mysteries, family dramas, and sagas—as well as never before seen explorations of the only French Impressionist painter to ever work in the United States—she must also confront the confusing parts of herself and her relationship, which add another dimension to the mysterious circumstances unfolding around her.

Meanwhile, she also explores the complexities of The Big Easy’s history and various cultures, a city as enthralling and haunting as Anne’s past, which influence Anne’s family history more than she can initially realize. To call this a coming-of-age novel would be to give it far less justice than it deserves. While adolescents are present, and they do, in fact, come of age, it’s really about adults who achieve personal growth themselves when it comes to understanding others who live in different circumstances than their own.

One could think of it as a coming-to-enlightenment novel. In the preface, the author states her goal is to bring fun, exploration, and adventure into career building. Usually, this process is considered to be about responsibility and accountability.

To accomplish her unique purpose, Raymond has tucked this shirt-pocket-sized guide full of hints, steps, and simple guidelines to help readers focus on finding a career. Dan Lovel, a former agent with the U. Diplomatic Security Service who freelances in discovering art forgeries and recovering stolen art, is sent a message and a ticket to meet on the island of Grand Cayman from Astrid Desmarais, a World Bank executive whose life he saved.

The meeting results in Dan’s accepting a commission to return four books—and, perhaps more significantly, a fifth—from a collection of “forbidden books” currently in Prague.

Astrid tells Dan that the books were expropriated by Napoleon and by rights should be returned to the Louvre. The World Bank mystery woman knows how to play upon Dan’s feelings of theft and betrayal, as his ancestors include people of Jewish and Gypsy lineage who were robbed, imprisoned, and killed during the Nazi era.

This young adult thriller takes a visionary turn as sixteen-year-old Bobby Ether and his allies battle Core, a militaristic cult at La Muerte Verde, the location of an ancient Mayan temple complex deep in the Guatemalan rainforest. Some of the characters from the first book of the series return for this adventure, so readers will look forward to the development of this tale.

Although this story stands alone, reading the first book will likely clarify some basic plot points and characterizations. Fans of the genre will enjoy Boyer’s fast-paced, cinematic approach to storytelling. Award-winning author, mother, and grandmother Costanzo has crafted an inspirational and delightful children’s book. The choice selection of a glittering rainbow-colored cover invokes a specialness, and there is much to love and praise about her overall story.

Costanzo delivers a joyful reading experience suitable for children and adults, pronouncing powerful lessons and affirming important morals. In this second book in the series, the author continues the drama of Enthilen. He brings new readers up to speed with first-person narration. Yielding hints in a prologue, the story then continues with the installation of a new king.

Each has a different path planned for the boy king. Tom Anderson is a birraman who entered this world from his own. He is an Australian boy brought here by magic and hatred for the man who killed his grandmother.

He must end a curse that revolves like a spinning blood compass, a swirling prophecy around birth twins, dark eyes of obsidian, and immortal life. Grin a Grell and Thaly, a Dobunni rebel, willingly hazard their lives for Tom.

In this collection, readers discover ancestry and origins, critical social commentary, and a discussion about the violence—overt and implicit—permeating American society. In this self-help offering, the author delves into how the unconscious can be tapped to improve one’s life, leading to a more balanced and satisfying existence. The book is divided into five major parts with an appendix, notes, and bibliography. The text delves into aspects of the unconscious and its relationship to the individual.

The author tackles subjects such as masculine and feminine energy, charisma and magnetism, unconscious and conscious suggestion, conditional and conscious autosuggestion, and creative visualization. Also included is a user’s guide to help readers process and use the information presented.

In this detailed historical study, readers venture through a past rife with violence, cultural erasure, and misogyny. Readers encounter a discussion that casts Charlemagne, the head of the Holy Roman Empire, in a new light. This discussion then informs readers about the Europe of today. Most significant in this book is the analysis of women, and the persecution of women and children. The book challenges readers by asserting that “More and more the Christian conquest is being seen as responsible for destroying and literally defacing likenesses of women.

Conjure the image of a dog sleeping on its back, in full slumber, and seemingly at complete peace. How many times have humans wondered what must be going through the minds of their fur babies in their blissful state? In Koski’s novel, told from the point of view of a multi-talented golden retriever, Grace Ellen, this sentiment is explored in great depth along with the feeling of belonging that is central to a dog’s healthy and fulfilling life.

Koski’s dedication page, commemorating a lifespan of canine companions, is simultaneously heartwarming and bittersweet as each one of the ten names on the list unlocks years of memories, love, warmth, community, and a sense of finality. At its core, Grace Ellen, also known as Amazing Gracie and more famously as Baby Bumbu, shows that for dogs, nothing truly trumps companionship and being part of their “pack. This collection of stories by Christie presents interesting characters and how they deal with the less-than-ideal circumstances of their lives.

This particular theme is present in some form throughout all the selections. The characters all come from common places, mostly small towns, and deal with the everyday situations people face. There are single mothers, parents who have lost children, people feeling alone or trapped, and more. Most of the stories deal with some form of hurt, many including trauma or tragic loss. However, the underlying theme throughout these stories is not the hurt so much but the search for hope.

Jardine decided to undertake the 88 Temple Pilgrimage, which is a 1, km walk to visit eighty-eight Buddhist temples in Japan. The journey inspired him to write his first book, The Hardest Path. Later, Jardine realized that the lessons he learned on that pilgrimage could be applied very well to something as mundane as money.

This idea led to the writing of the current book. This work is divided into three parts. The first talks about money and its value. The second covers finding one’s own meaningful work. Finally, the third part covers the lessons he has found to help a person become a Buddhist Millionaire. But, be that as it may, a book you can’t put down is exactly what this one is.

This mesmerizing tale of a brutal murder, the people who committed it, the individuals responsible for solving the crime, those called upon to administer justice, and the many who were tangentially affected is a book that holds one spellbound.

Not since Truman Capote’s groundbreaking In Cold Blood has there been such a masterful combination of reportage and dramatic storytelling. Kirchner paints a bleak, highly controversial picture of humanity’s future in his debut novel that is reminiscent of other dystopian masterpieces like The Matrix. Kirchner places the reader in the mind of its protagonist, Tommy or “TeePee” as his raving fan base calls him , to ponder whether privacy and independence are more important than a constant connection with others on a level that is beyond words.

Like The Matrix ‘s Neo, Tommy is metaphorically “unplugged” from the technological world he has been rooted in and forced to make a difficult choice: join a band of independent thinkers, known as the Ketchen, who dream of a revolution that will free the minds of all, or re-integrate himself back into the Hive, to be embraced by the love and adoration of eight million people.

When a wife and a mistress find out about each other and meet face to face, the enmity is instantaneous. In another story, the stage could be set for an all-out war of woman against woman, each poised to destroy the other in parallel pursuit of their shared target: the love and commitment of the man they have in common.

But the prize is different in this book, which marries the what-if scenario of a truly sociopathic serial lothario with the chronicling of sexual harassment and marginalization of women that the author herself observed and experienced during her days as a senior executive working in California’s technology hub, Silicon Valley.

Dan Esperson, a company lawyer living in the Houston area, investigates the murder of a refinery’s first black supervisor. The victim, a man named Billy Graham, has been shot five times. At first, the killing looks like a simple case of robbery. But things grow complicated when Sheila Mills, a beautiful administrative assistant with whom Esperson is having an affair, confesses to having conspired to kill Graham at the behest of her husband.

Meanwhile, a union strike is threatening to turn violent, and Esperson’s marriage is unraveling. His life is further endangered when he comes into possession of a tape that may incriminate the suspects The book begins on Rubin’s day off from working as a hotel bellhop.

He hangs out at a cafe, chatting with fellow French Quarter “Rats”—people who make a living off the tourist industry. Over the next few days, Rubin recounts his chance meetings with these acquaintances and friends. Cliff is developing a Bojangles act to peddle on Jackson Street. Eddie sips beer—in an orderly fashion befitting a writer—between hours working on his tome and giving carriage rides. Ramona, Rubin’s girlfriend, displays her sexy new waitress clothes for him.

Photographer Sab, Rubin’s best friend, gets ready for a weekend getaway. The narrator’s attention to colorful details and his spontaneous, stream-of-consciousness approach convey New Orlean’s carefree spirit. Meier brings to vivid life the horrendous struggle for survival in the ill-fated British settlement of Jamestown in seventeenth-century Virginia.

The historical tale focuses upon a love triangle between two friends, Richard and Matthew, and Anne, the woman beloved by both, in an affair commencing in the heady months of construction before the devastating winter of As with many other immigrants, Matthew and Anne would prefer not to have chosen the uncertainties and deprivations of life in the New World, but their circumstances as an apprentice on the lam Matthew and an indentured servant to a wealthy couple Anne make their emigration not only desirable but expedient.

In this book, readers travel with Crystal—a dedicated wife and mother—and her family from Pico City to Bangkok after her husband Brian’s job with Firstgas relocates him to Thailand. As Crystal navigates the Thai culture and language as well as her husband and children’s new routines, she suddenly finds herself alone.

With no respite from the social isolation except for Thai language classes and tutoring the family’s servant, Nit, Crystal soon finds herself plummeting into a deep depression. When Brian reveals that he has been seeing a masseuse since before his family arrived in Bangkok, Crystal’s depression and isolation worsen, so much so that she soon finds herself separated from her family and hospitalized in Houston.

As her hospitalization takes a toll on not only her marriage but also her relationship with her children, Crystal discovers the key to healing. With it, her husband and children learn the true meaning of “family. The scourge of polio in the mid-twentieth century became the focus of author Emmett’s life. He contracted the disease at age nine in He believes the onset was caused by swimming in a lake that had been polluted via the local sewage treatment plant. Symptoms began with weakness and fever, followed by burning leg pain.

Medical interventions at the time included lengthy isolation in special hospital wards to prevent contagion, extremely painful physical therapies administered with little regard for patient comfort, and complex surgeries in which healthy muscles were extracted and moved to weakened body parts, sometimes performed without anesthesia.

There is a sobering candor to Liston’s book, allowing the reader to fully appreciate the arduous path out of despair and to recovery. Liston himself is a chief example of how one ends up on the dark road of dependency. His is a story of heartbreaking revelations and redemption. It celebrates the human spirit and proclaims what we can all achieve for ourselves. Falling in love is easy. Swept up in emotions and the excitement of something new is like a rose-filled wave that lifts lovers to dizzying heights and sets them off on shore to find their way.

Then the hard work begins, and sometimes that work demands the help of the experts. With over forty years of experience, Mary Giuffra offers resources and practices to empower couples to build and maintain long-lasting relationships.

Filled with practical advice, insightful revelations, and candid examples, this guide will inspire couples to transform their relationships.

Strategies are thoughtfully designed and thoroughly explained, so the hard work feels manageable and the results within reach. Professor Poodle has enlisted the services of Auggie, an active and curious doggy, to help him find all the letters in the alphabet in this action-packed children’s story by author Vogel.

The hunt begins when Auggie impulsively rushes to show his smarts by revealing the letter A hiding in a stack of hay. But he flees almost at once when suddenly attacked by an aggressive B that is also hiding there. As the letter C looks on, Auggie crashes into Farmer D , wearing a straw hat and carrying a hoe. The farmer offers him protection from the B so he and the professor can continue their quest.

They hop in Professor Poodle’s model E car, pass a flashing F , and head toward a large G and a road with an H in the middle. But they are delayed by an I on the windshield, blocking their view. When the windshield is magically cleaned perhaps by the M that Auggie took from the tree , they proceed on and camp out for the night.

Just as the Q is rising, they awake and realize their “car with an R ” won’t start. Hence, they make stilts out of an S and a T. Blocked by two U s that are actually two girl sheep, they are finally able to get past them with the help of the sheep’s mother, a perfect W.

Before their trek is over, they will find the remaining letters, back where they started. Sara Donovan is in her second semester at the University of Alabama and struggling to make sure she maintains a healthy grade point average so her father will agree to her continuing her education at the university. She is behind on her Egyptology class research assignment concerning the smuggling of antiquities and beginning to fear she might not finish it in time for the sixty-minute presentation she must make in order to pass.

When she discovers that the souvenir she purchases from the Dauphin Museum is possibly a valuable piece stolen from Egypt’s antiquities, she wonders if something is amiss at the museum. As she works part-time in the museum’s gift shop, she begins to investigate their shipments and becomes even more convinced that she is on the right track. When her new neighbor, the handsome and mysterious Conner, turns out to be the new TA for her Egyptology class, she finds herself questioning his motives and becomes even more certain that there is a smuggling ring at work in Tuscaloosa.

Drawing from his long, accomplished career in military and government leadership, Major General Whelden blends leadership principles with memoir in this thoughtful, inspiring collection that reflects on positive ways to get the best from people and get good work done in any organization or role. Whelden knows his subject well from his long and decorated career in military service and then government leadership. Having served thirty years as an Army officer and nearly a decade in the Senior Executive Service of the federal government, he held leadership positions of tremendous and material authority, leading people, projects, operations, bases, and more.

In , freelance writer Castillo was allowed to organize a journaling class within the walls of North Carolina’s Death Row. This unusual privilege became the focal point for this emotive collection. She began a several-year correspondence with inmates Braxton, May, Robinson, and Wilkerson, whose recollections here open the door to a dark place that most people will never see.

The men’s writings provide memories of childhoods filled with drugs, weapons, violence, and fractured families where crime was an unavoidable norm and staying tough was a desperate necessity.

The men lay bare their tender feelings for family and each other. Some express the introspection that makes true religious conversion a reality. One of the book’s toughest segments recalls the hours before executions, with men hugging their doomed fellow inmate, declaring in one case, “You’re good people to me.

Pidgeon’s dive into an understanding of the mind, particularly social consciousness, delivers an educational experience that is both comprehensively researched in the areas of psychology and neuroscience and geared to help people better understand the inner workings of their brains regarding their own life situations, challenges, and formation of belief systems. While the material is undoubtedly complex, as expected, the author is committed to illustrating the scientific concepts through the lens of universally relatable examples, including but not limited to effective parenting and overcoming alcoholism.

Professor Emeritus Pidgeon—founder of the Neuroscience Sensory Unit, a group of students who analyze neuroscience literature—and Sehej Bindra Berkeley Class of provide a condensed yet comprehensive study of the somatosensory system featuring questions and answers about tactile sensations and our bodies’ physiological responses to these.

This practical approach of applying “somatosensory neuroscience theory and then expanding on these fundamental concepts through applying them in the context of experiential research and day-to-day life” allows the book to be useful both in academic settings and to educate lay readers. Paul Martin and Tyler Williams are determined to give purpose to their gap year. At just eighteen years of age, the newly minted high school graduates immediately gravitate to Animal Welfare Enterprises’ mission.

What ensues is a trip to the South African countryside town of Happy Hollow with the intent of awakening the community to animal mistreatment on the Stewart farm and “to free the crocodiles” from any barriers that keep them from their natural habitat. It doesn’t take long for this seemingly innocent freedom of expression by the boys to snowball into endless sequences of chaos and repercussions by a community and authorities determined to make an example of the duo.

Dating back to John Locke’s An Essay Concerning Human Understanding , the concept of consciousness has been examined and analyzed from nearly every angle. In Landre’s work, readers experience a synthesis of these ideas, packaged in an efficient and succinct structure that focuses on four phases of consciousness and the sixty-four needs that span the spectrum of self-preservation to egolessness. At the center of this work is an emphasis on understanding, an awakening that revolves around motivation and learning as the catalyst for happiness.

Willow Stewart’s spirit is as fiery as her curtain of red hair. Hers is the hardscrabble existence of a lifelong Appalachian in the early s.

She can’t speak and has never made a sound in her fifteen years. Her brother Briar was banished fifteen months ago. Then her newborn brother dies, her mother falls ill enough to do likewise, and she must summon a traveling preacher from town and send a message to Briar inviting him to return, considering the circumstances.

Sensitive, idealistic Sam Ransom probably doesn’t intend to live up to his last name, but he chooses a profession wherein he does exactly that—saves, that is, ransoms lost souls. When Sam is nine in segregated s Mississippi, a black lay preacher named Giles Word draws him gently away from a life of racial prejudice and ignorance. This leads to other interracial friendships. First is Early Holly, named so because of his premature birth, who is then severely burned in a house fire that kills his father.

Giles’ niece Sharon Rose comes next, capturing both Sam’s imagination and his heart. Not caring what their neighbors think, the three form an innocent childhood friendship. Adolescence brings awareness of racial tensions, and in time they grow apart. He continues his criminal life in New York, stealing for himself and his family. Caught, Domenico spends years in jail and is mentored by a mob boss, Don. Don teaches Domenico to channel his passions and to win battles with his brains more than his brawn.

In a ritual conducted once he’s out of prison, Domenico takes an oath to become a “made man,” then, over several years, moves up the mob’s Family hierarchy until a rival almost kills him in a fight to replace him. Domenico returns to prison repentant. Released to his son and granddaughter’s new home in Iowa, he vows to be a positive influence on his great-grandson, Pauli. Domenico advises Pauli to form a loyal “gang” of friends to do good, not evil. Pauli’s group, The Italians, joins forces with town citizens to raise funds for their school cafeteria lady’s medical bills.

Baseball is said to be a game of failure, where success is marked by failing up to seventy-five percent of the time. How then to motivate young players and nurture their mental as well as physical games so they embrace and excel at America’s pastime and gain useful life lessons? This thoughtful little book posits that the necessary counterbalance to baseball’s inherent negativity is for coaches and parents to teach a positive head game and lead kids by celebrating incremental personal successes and teaching perspective and common sense performance measurements.

Set in a small European city ravaged by the destruction of WWII, this novel follows the lives of a group of young people trying to survive. Devastated by bombings, the city has little to offer anyone. Those doing their best to stay alive have to find their own ways to get by. The charismatic and resourceful Tullio holds the group together and steals what he must to feed the others.

Giulia does her best to make their hideout in the rubble resemble a home, while Carla helps bring in necessities working as a prostitute. Daniele left the priests and his school and does not want to be a burden on the others.

He carries a lot of guilt about not doing his share. Together, the group takes care of Maria, a child who shows signs of shellshock. Between and , Norton comes of age in Anchorage, Alaska. With this personal memoir, he explores and celebrates the beauty and awe-inspiring terrain of the state known as “The Land of the Midnight Sun” and “The Last Frontier. His firsthand accounts present a portrait of Alaska that few ever see or understand.

Weaving together reminiscences of years that define and shape him, he examines Alaska’s peoples and chronicles its ecology, wildlife, and terminology that make the land so unique. When Susan Marshall gets the phone call from her brother telling her that her mother is missing, she is shocked to find that her mother is descending into dementia just months after her father has succumbed to Alzheimer’s.

Marshall finds herself wholly unprepared to face the myriad of decisions that arise as she navigates the health, financial, and legal issues that come with caring for her mother.

In addition, she must untangle the frustrations and expectations of her siblings when they lose both parents within ten months of each other. Exploring aging, dying, and caregiving issues, Marshall shares her singular experience as a daughter coming to terms with the past and all its choices, forking paths, and a future without her parents. Her account movingly connects to universal truths and familiar tribulations that offer readers comfort and support. Marshall views her writing and reflection as “a hand extended,” which is a fitting gesture that matches the words and revelatory stories in this memoir.

This honest story of caring for her mother is truly an offering to those seeking another’s experience of preparing for and watching a parent slowly diminish from dementia or Alzheimer’s.

A child born into extreme conflict conquers his fear and frustration to achieve a significant life goal. As a toddler, Hicks was present along with his older brother when his insanely furious father senselessly shot and killed his mother and, minutes later, shot himself in the head. Hicks was then raised by his loving, strong-willed grandmother, whom he called Mama. She had raised other grandchildren and developed a special attachment to the little boy.

Through her example and his own self-acquired inner resilience, he struggled but hung on in school and social situations. Elegant and intellectual, this collection of essays transports readers into the heart and soul of a Paris many have never experienced.

With intimate reflections that portray Parisian life, offerings such as “At Home or Not in Paris” discuss the struggles and joys of cultural acclimation: “Just us, temporaries and permanents, snapping by on errands and trysts, or sitting vacantly, or sauntering toward coffee on musing walks. Johnny, the youngest of the Caruso children, narrates this fictional story about his difficult upbringing in Brooklyn in the s and 60s.

Through vignettes of daily life, rich dialogue, and a strong cast of characters, Johnny captures coming of age at the hands of a violent father and a medicated, mentally ill mother. His boisterous Italian-American extended family looms in the background of this unfolding story, at times bringing celebration and at other times fuel to ignite fires of rage and resentment.

His older brother and sister offer support as protectors, caregivers, and eventually role models for escaping by any means necessary. His siblings flee through the military and through marriage, while Johnny relies on education as a way to eventually leave his abusive home. Born from the inside of a stone, the Monkey King is brave, eager to learn, and treats everyone with equal respect. However, unable to sit still, he is quick to anger and easily bruised emotionally by what he perceives as slights against the respect he is due as the king of his people.

This leads many other powerful figures to take offense at his behavior and demand his punishment or execution. Under the tutelage of the Buddha, Souen Wu-Kung is ordered to help a monk make a pilgrimage to India and return with the sacred texts.

With new allies and a dangerous journey before them, the Monkey King’s path to salvation will be treacherous but fulfilling. This large-format inspirational book interprets the conflict between the wise person and the fool presented from two chapters of the book of Proverbs.

These chapters contain contrasting verses that each form a couplet. The author uses both pictures and words to explain, or rather convey, insights gained from years of biblical memorization and meditation.

A small Colorado ranching community comes romping to life in this contemporary mystery filled with a cadre of characters that give a whole new meaning to eccentric. Law officers, water thieves, a German with a checkered past, and an oldster with an imaginary dog are just some of the people who populate these pages with flamboyant foibles that keep the smiles one step ahead of the surprises in a tantalizing tale of escape, evasion, mayhem, murder and more. Published posthumously, Natale’s work is a roadmap teaching readers to use love and compassion as armor against limitations like fear, conventional thinking, and numerous other vulnerabilities, ultimately stressing that knowledge on the mental, physical, and especially spiritual level is locked within us.

True self-discovery is the best teacher. While the text is imbued with valuable lessons, it is the combination of the author’s willful sharing of his own authentic experiences, such as growing up in Brooklyn and an innate ability to simplify complex topics especially death, energy meditations, and the transformational rites of passage that makes Natale’s work both universally relatable and highly applicable.

This short volume of poetry, “written over a cup of afternoon tea at pm in Hong Kong on weekends and holidays,” is a tribute to the human capacity to capture life in both its simplicity and complexity in poetic snapshots. Some of the poems are emotional, delving into human interactions and those words said and left unsaid.

For example, in “A Few Words! In these poems of social commentary, readers engage in one of the most turbulent times in American history. With the main focus on America’s wherewithal during the coronavirus pandemic, these pieces capture snapshots of quarantines and lockdowns, disrupted family lives and “quaran-teams,” political divisiveness, and small peaceful moments.

Also, readers find positive, encouraging messages in poems of trust and faith: “Then I sang ‘Lord make me an instrument of Thy peace. In this collection, readers discover a world where love, loss, sex, and religion swirl to form a poetic hurricane. Uncle Billy is sixty-seven, a world traveler, a former Marine, and an appreciator of good literature and the teachings of famous people.

He’s handy with a British accent and a pithy anecdote. His much younger sister finds these qualities ideal as she toils to support her teenage son, Ross, whose father left her pregnant. Every weekday afternoon, Uncle Billy watches Ross until she picks him up. He allows her to use his address so Ross can attend a better school. This contemporary crime thriller set in Durham, North Carolina, features police detective Solomon King.

His intimidating size is only matched by his impressive brain. Having recently lost his wife, he’s a bit at sea emotionally. However, a string of deaths pulls him back into the job he does particularly well—catching bad guys.

Сначала она едва заметно вздрогнула, словно от озноба, и тут же ее захлестнула волна отчаяния. Приоткрыв дрожащие губы, она попыталась что-то сказать, но слов не последовало. Не спуская со Стратмора ледяного взгляда, Сьюзан сделала шаг вперед и протянула к нему руку с зажатым в ней предметом.
