Book Excerpt :

Born with osteogenesis imperfecta, a genetic bone disorder, Heather Anderson has had more than her share of challenges. Yet her spirit has remained intact, and Heather has triumphed against the odds and lived a full and enthusiastic life. A Little More Than Perfect is Heathers inspiring true story of living with a disorder that touches every part of her life. The disease makes her bones incredibly fragile, and the slightest touch can sometimes cause a fracture. This led to numerous trips to the hospital, casts, and surgeries. Yet from an early age, Heather refused to let the disability stop her. She graduated high school, attended University, learned how to drive, and even started her own business. At the age of twenty-four, she moved into an apartment of her own and found the independence she so craved. Through the years, she continued to face her own unique challenges including discrimination and job loss, but she refused to capitulate to despair. Instead, she found the inner strength to overcome her setbacks and live life on her terms. Though many have shown her pity, Heather counters with the perfect rejoinder: My life is a testimony to the human spirits ability to endure the worst challenges imaginable. Honest and utterly captivating, A Little More Than Perfect will embrace your heart.

Book Short Summary:

Imagine if, through the practiced art of meditative touch, you discovered a molten stream of psychic energyjust below the surface of your hands. A mystical gateway to everyone around you, that revealed their deepest beliefs, their most intimate secrets. A window into the future that reduced all time to the eternal present moment. A source of immense power to healor to harm. Daniel Michaels develops mystical abilities that are somehow connected to his hands. Drawn into a world where terrorism and love become inextricably linked, he is periodically haunted by a recurring dream of imminent danger. Does it speak of the past, the future, or the frightening figments of a vivid imagination? In this riveting drama, author Costa John weaves the beauty of Africa, the tension of Middle East politics, the meaning of dreams, and the inspiring notion that a spiritual connection binds us all, into a romantic, political thriller that keeps readers guessing until the last page. What People Are Saying THE TOUCH OF A LIGHTER HAND Costa John 2005 Costa Johns intricately woven tale touches on the nuances of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at a deeply human level. So often these clashes are reduced to bloody television coverage and statistics. In this story, the lives and intense passions of the key characters are inextricably connected. Within the grey areas of right and wrong, the righteous and the rebellious, is a world that Costa John describes with acute sensitivity and insight. His style of writing creates well drawn, rounded characters. Women play a powerful role in his novel. Too often in the genre of thriller, their role is victima mounting series of dead and mutilated bodies. If not dead, they are deadly. Whether tough and career minded, or siren and seducer, Johns female characters are also strong, flawed, irrational, passionate, fierce and caring. His principal character, Daniel Michaels, is an extraordinary man. His hands are imbued with energy that he describes as strangely able to project and receive life. His mystical power is latent but heightened by his increasing mastery of Aikido and the philosophy behind this martial art. But it extends beyond physical energy. He has paranormal abilities. His recurring dream grows on the reader and tugs at the edge of the sub-conscious. With mounting unease, as we track the time frame of the book, it leads us inexorably to a revelation, and a sense of dj vu. His soul mate, Liann Zellan, also has the power to heal. Evident from the first moment we meet them, they should and must be together. John keeps them tantalisingly apart, politically and emotionally. They are both attracted and troubled by each others standpoints. His Arabic blood, African heritage and American upbringing become a source of conflict as Liann struggles with a love she believes is at odds with her deep commitment to the Israeli cause. The plot takes the reader from Chicago to San Francisco, from the bush of Southern Africa to the Middle East. Here John masterfully personifies Middle Eastern conflict, where desires and goals seem tantalisingly congruent, but are more often at violent odds. The villains of Costa Johns thriller run the dark side from warring factions, feeding expediently off the conflict, to parasites who benefit from the richness of their hosts whatever side they may be on. For any South African reader, Michaels involvement in the Angolan war as a member of the South African Army in the 70s will resonate strongly. For American readers, this chapter in Africas history may evoke hauntingly similar memories of foreign conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq. But he also draws a vivid picture of African wildlife that reinforces the romance, the wonder, the sights, and the sounds of Africa. The plot races to a climax th

Book Short Summary:

Wildly funny tales and practical wisdom from the author's and other women's breastfeeding experiences--to reassure readers that there is no one way to be a great breastfeeder In this perfect antidote to "lactivist" propaganda, award-winning writer Andy Steiner weaves together hysterical anecdotes and tips from the trenches to offer comfort and realistic advice to new nursing moms. Spilled Milk will help them understand that not all babies are going to "get it" right away, that breastfeeding can hurt even if you're doing it correctly, and that baring your breasts in public will actually become shamefully easy with time. Steiner writes: "Looking back at my milky adventure, I realize now that while breastfeeding is a natural act, it's also a difficult one. And after amassing an impressive collection of how-to breastfeeding books, nipple shields, lactation consultants, breast pumps, nursing bras, storage bags, and wicked breast infections, I can only say that the one thing that was missing from the experience was a book that could tell me--in a casual, non-preachy tone--that I wasn't alone, that everything was going to be okay." That is the book that Steiner has written. Her fresh viewpoint and casual, girlfriend-to-girlfriend advice make Spilled Milk practical and accessible for every mom-to-be.

Book Short Summary:

Many important questions regarding the creation and adoption of the United States Constitution remain unresolved. Did slaveholdings or financial holdings significantly influence our Founding Fathers' stance on particular clauses or rules contained in the Constitution? Was there a division of support for the Constitution related to religious beliefs or ethnicity? Were founders from less commercial areas more likely to oppose the Constitution? To Form a More Perfect Union successfully answers these questions and offers an economic explanation for the behavior of our Founding Fathers during the nation's constitutional founding. In 1913, American historian Charles A. Beard controversially argued in his book An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution of the United States that the framers and ratifiers of the Constitution were less interested in furthering democratic principles than in advancing specific economic and financial interests. Beard's thesis eventually emerged as the standard historical interpretation and remained so until the 1950s. Since then, many constitutional and historical scholars have questioned an economic interpretation of the Constitution as being too narrow or too calculating, believing the great principles and political philosophies that motivated the Founding Fathers to be worthier subjects of study. In this meticulously researched reexamination of the drafting and ratification of our nation's Constitution, Robert McGuire argues that Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, George Mason and the other Founding Fathers did act as much for economic motives as for abstract ideals. To Form a More Perfect Union offers compelling evidence showing that the economic, financial, and other interests of the founders can account for the specific design and adoption of our Constitution. This is the first book to provide modern evidence that substantiates many of the overall conclusions found in Charles Beard's An Economic Interpretation while challenging and overturning other of Beard's specific findings. To Form a More Perfect Union presents an entirely new approach to the study of the shaping of the U.S. Constitution. Through the application of economic thinking and rigorous statistical techniques, as well as the processing of vast amounts of data on the economic interests and personal characteristics of the Founding Fathers, McGuire convincingly demonstrates that an economic interpretation of the Constitution is valid. Radically challenging the prevailing views of most historians, political scientists, and legal scholars, To Form a More Perfect Union provides a wealth of new findings about the Founding Fathers' constitutional choices and sheds new light on the motivations behind the design and adoption of the United States Constitution.

Book Short Summary:

"The hottest instructor in golf" (Sports Illustrated) takes on old-school gurus with a far more accessible, intuitive, and innovative approach to those essential chip shots, pitches, and bunker rescues. Veteran golfers know that the secret to a lower score is a solid short game, but mastering those small strokes can be maddening—even for the pros. One of golf's most revered instructors, Stan Utley now reveals the step-by-step tactics behind his revolutionary short-game techniques in The Art of the Short Game. After introducing readers to his groundbreaking philosophy that explains why most players don't see all the shots available to them near the green, Utley moves on to shatter conventional wisdom about stance, grip, and ball position. From choosing the right clubs (including a checklist of must-haves that should always be in your bag) to spin reduction during chipping and fearless sand play, The Art of the Short Game demystifies the most aggravating shots on the links. Though Utley's primer features a full set of drills, accompanied by more than seventy-five photos, his approach is far removed from the monotonous, mechanical instruction of yesteryear. Giving a time-tested secret weapon to every golfer at every level, Utley's short-game methods turn trouble shots into triumph.

Samantha Masters is an environmental scientist who has inherited one of the largest textile firms in the region, a business built by her father. She is also the target of an obsessed lunatic who murders and mutilates his victims. The killer then leaves a mannequin in the wilderness dressed as himself, playing an infuriating game of cat and mouse with law enforcement. Unfortunately, all the sleuthing in the world doesn't prevent Samantha from being abducted. She manages to escape after being drugged, raped, and tortured-but not before suffering two gunshot wounds.

Not wishing to burden others with her pain, Rachel decides, agonizing as it is, not to tell anyone—not even her boss, her partner, her husband, or her seven-year-old daughter. She wants to go down fighting, and to take as many serial killers with her as she can. A serial killer strikes in the Virginia area, targeting women who seek fertility treatments. As Rachel enters his sick and twisted mind, she struggles to understand his motive, or the connection between the victims. Worse, the case strikes too close to home, bringing up memories of her own fertility treatments, and her failed mission to have a second child. As she seeks insight from a diabolical, jailed serial killer, she immediately realizes it’s a mistake. Can he see right through her? Can Rachel keep her secret and keep her deteriorating health at bay long enough to finish the job? Can she fulfill her own bucket list before she dies? And can she keep herself from descending down the dark hole of her own traumatic past? In THE PERFECT WIFE (A Jessie Hunt Psychological Suspense Thriller—Book 1), criminal profiler-in-training Jessie Hunt is sure she's finally put the darkness of her childhood behind her. She and her husband, Kyle, just moved from a cramped downtown Los Angeles apartment into a Westport Beach mansion. Kyle's promotion has them swimming in money. And Jessie is on the verge of getting her Master's degree in forensic psychology, the last step in her dream of becoming a criminal profiler. But soon after their arrival, Jessie begins to notice a series of strange developments. The neighbors—and their au pairs—all seem to be hiding secrets. The mysterious yacht club Kyle is desperate to join is rife with cheating spouses, and with troubling rules of its own. And the notorious serial killer being held at the psychiatric hospital where Jessie is completing her degree seems to know more about her life than is normal—or safe. As her world starts to unravel, Jessie begins to question everything around her—including her own sanity. Has she truly uncovered a disturbing conspiracy buried within a sunny, wealthy Southern California beach town? Does the mass murderer she's studying really somehow know the origin of her private nightmares? Or has her tortured past finally come back to claim her? Dark psychological thrillers with heart-pounding suspense, HER LAST WISH and THE PERFECT WIFE mark the debut of two riveting series—and beloved characters—that will leave you turning pages late into the night! Books #2 in each series series—HER LAST CHANCE and THE PERFECT BLOCK—are also available.

Book Short Summary:

I am a thief. While travelling through a rather longish journey of life, I was fortunate enough to come across a variety of characters. There were moments with them that were worth stealing. I have stolen them and preserved carefully in a sacred corner of my heart. Now the time has come when it looks selfish that I have failed to share my treasure with the masses in general and the connoisseurs in particular. While going through the book, you are sure to come across the characters that you encounter in day-to-day life. All of them have a story. Some of these strike a chord in you. These are the things you preserve and that is reflected in you as well. Feelings are precious and make a permanent impression which you carry forward. This is the essence of literature. While I said this, there is no claim from my side that the works are of great literary value. It is my humble endeavour to share my stolen treasure with you so that I am no more tagged as selfish. There are eleven short stories in this collection. The characters belong to different walks of life, and are mostly commoners; like you and me. But do the commoners not have uncommon stories? My success depends on whether you enjoy the stories. It is after all, the enjoyment that matters.

Book Short Summary:

Yes, there are times when it’s appropriate to reason with your child, to patiently and eloquently explain why he or she needs to do as you ask. You might present convincing arguments like “Because it makes you strong”; “Because it will keep you safe”; “Because it’s good for you”; “Because it’s bad for you.” But there are times when the only thing that really makes sense is . . . “Because I said so!!” This book is a hilarious, honest romp through motherhood—the joys, the sleeplessness, the frazzled days, the unending carpooling, the in-house refereeing, the dieting (yeah, right), the worrying—and did we say, the joy? Here’s what some of that joy looks like—with excerpts straight from the book: • I tried to do the Buns of Steel video, but quickly realized that it wasn’t intended for people who have buns of pudding. • I felt like my head might explode. I kind of hoped it would so I could take a nice, peaceful ambulance ride out of there. • I was a little at a loss. I mean, those parenting books don’t tell you how to break up a fight over an imaginary friend. • Moms aren’t allowed to get sick more than one day a year. Single moms aren’t allowed to get sick ever. • Before you have children you can’t imagine yourself saying things like “Don’t put chocolate milk in your pants,” “Take the hot dog out of your nose,” or “Because I said so!” If you’re a mom-to-be or a mom in the trenches, you’ll love knowing that you’re not the only one out there who sometimes just figures it out as you go along—and sometimes can’t figure it out at all. But in the end, Dawn has these words of encouragement just for you: “Enjoy this time. Even when they make you crazy, these are the best days of your life.” And they really are, aren’t they?

Book Short Summary:

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize “Russo writes with a warm, vibrant humanity.... A stirring mix of poignancy, drama and comedy.” —The Washington Post Welcome to Empire Falls, a blue-collar town full of abandoned mills whose citizens surround themselves with the comforts and feuds provided by lifelong friends and neighbors and who find humor and hope in the most unlikely places, in this Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Richard Russo. Miles Roby has been slinging burgers at the Empire Grill for 20 years, a job that cost him his college education and much of his self-respect. What keeps him there? It could be his bright, sensitive daughter Tick, who needs all his help surviving the local high school. Or maybe it’s Janine, Miles’ soon-to-be ex-wife, who’s taken up with a noxiously vain health-club proprietor. Or perhaps it’s the imperious Francine Whiting, who owns everything in town–and seems to believe that “everything” includes Miles himself. In Empire Falls Richard Russo delves deep into the blue-collar heart of America in a work that overflows with hilarity, heartache, and grace.

Book Short Summary:

When the Rogue Warrior travels to India to help supervise security arrangements for the upcoming Commonwealth Games, he and his team find themselves up to their skivvies in terrorists of all types--Pakistanis. But it's not just the Games that are being targeted for disruption--Demo Dick and his young bucks uncover a plot to steal all seventy nuclear warheads the Indians have amassed for war against the Pakistanis. Rogue Warrior must overcome various obstacles to prevent disaster: a high-tech remote controlled attack helicopter that makes the Apache look like a child's toy, an ominous chemical factory about to go boom, and tea and crumpets with the Queen. We're just kidding about the Queen. Marcinko and DeFelice sprinkle the action with trademark Rogue Warrior humor and non-PC asides in the latest installment of the best-selling series. As usual, the plot mixes fact with fiction, and incorporates some of the original SEAL Team 6 skipper's recent experiences in India. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Book Short Summary:

In these fourteen essays, Fraser focuses on women in love affairs, friendships, marriages, and families; in relation to one another and to the talented men who so often rendered them invisible. In Ornament and Silence we see Virginia Woolf, haunted and eventually destroyed by the sexual secrets of her childhood. We meet Flaubert's theatrically importunate mistress, Louise Colet, the one woman who could briefly slip past the master's misogyny. Fraser offers vibrant portraits of the Russian novelist Nina Berberova and the English naturalist Miriam Rothschild. And here is Fraser herself, learning her craft at The New Yorker, tending her English garden and--on every page--delighting us with the manifold felicities of her prose. "A wonderfully idiosyncratic set of essays on women famous and unknown whose public and private lives Fraser examines with great feeling and exactitude...insight, intelligence, and grace."--Newsday "Subtlety, fluency, candor, an agile sensate intellect--Kennedy Fraser brings all these gifts to bear on a subject that is not always contemplated so untendentiously, with such independence of mind, and from such a generous and worldly point of view."--Phillip Roth

Book Short Summary:

Do you practise meditation because you want to feel good? Or to help you relax and be "happy"? Then frankly, according to Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse, you are far better off having a full-body massage than trying to practise the Dharma. Genuine spiritual practice, not least the Ngöndro preliminaries, will not bring the kind of comfort and ease most worldly people crave. Quite the opposite, in fact. But if your ultimate goal is enlightenment, Ngöndro practice is a must, and Not for Happiness your perfect guide, as it contains everything an aspiring practitioner needs to get started, including advice about: • developing "renunciation mind" • discipline, meditation and wisdom • using your imagination in visualization practice • why you need a guru
