Book Excerpt :

NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD WINNER • NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The definitive account of America's conflict with Islamic fundamentalism and a searing exploration of its human costs—an instant classic of war reporting from the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist. Through the eyes of Dexter Filkins, a foreign correspondent for the New York Times, we witness the rise of the Taliban in the 1990s, the aftermath of the attack on New York on September 11th, and the American wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Filkins is the only American journalist to have reported on all these events, and his experiences are conveyed in a riveting narrative filled with unforgettable characters and astonishing scenes. Brilliant and fearless, The Forever War is not just about America's wars after 9/11, but about the nature of war itself.

Book Short Summary:

The Christmas bells are chiming across the Outer Banks town of Bell Cove, North Carolina, but there’s one local ‘grinch’ who’s not listening . . . He’s got bad-boy looks and a Bah Humbug attitude, so when the local paper asks the villagers to vote on the “Biggest Local Grinch” as a fund-raising project, Ethan Rutledge isn’t surprised to hear he’s made the ballot. He might own the local Christmas Tree Farm, but the holiday hasn’t been welcome in his home since Wendy Patterson left him heart-broken twelve years ago. But now Wendy’s back, fresh from a tour of duty as a female Navy SEAL. She’s bold, beautiful, and has five Navy buddies trailing after her—as if she needs a bodyguard! And what’s all this about them wanting to start a treasure hunting company right here in Bell Cove’s failing bell factory? Then Wendy learns about how Ethan’s been nurturing the one thing he has to remember her by: a gorgeous Norway Spruce tree. Can the magic of Christmas and the spirit of the town help rekindle the romance between two people who thought they’d left love behind years ago?

Book Short Summary:

Read this million-copy bestseller for leadership insights about top-down change to improve productivity in your business starting with the most important person: You. When Captain Abrashoff took over as commander of USS Benfold, it was like a business that had all the latest technology but only some of the productivity. Knowing that responsibility for improving performance rested with him, he realized he had to improve his own leadership skills before he could improve his ship. Within months, he created a crew of confident and inspired problem-solvers eager to take the initiative and responsibility for their actions. The slogan on board became "It's your ship," and Benfold was soon recognized far and wide as a model of naval efficiency. How did Abrashoff do it? Against the backdrop of today's United States Navy, Abrashoff shares his secrets of successful management including: See the ship through the eyes of the crew: By soliciting a sailor's suggestions, Abrashoff drastically reduced tedious chores that provided little additional value. Communicate, communicate, communicate: The more Abrashoff communicated the plan, the better the crew's performance. His crew eventually started calling him "Megaphone Mike," since they heard from him so often. Create discipline by focusing on purpose: Discipline skyrocketed when Abrashoff's crew believed that what they were doing was important. Listen aggressively: After learning that many sailors wanted to use the GI Bill, Abrashoff brought a test official aboard the ship-and held the SATs forty miles off the Iraqi coast. From achieving amazing cost savings to winning the highest gunnery score in the Pacific Fleet, Captain Abrashoff's extraordinary campaign sent shock waves through the U.S. Navy. It can help you change the course of your ship, no matter where your business battles are fought.

Book Short Summary:

Many families are comprised of the good and the bad, the cherished and the reprehensible, some change, others never intend to. This is the generational saga of the ups and downs of one such Mafia family, the Stanolis. The Stanolis, the third of four novellas in the series, follows the saga of the Stanoli family who originated from Mezzogiorno and Sicily and moved to America in the first decade of the twentieth-century. Involved in organized crime, they are steeled in learning from the past, and they often find better tomorrows. Filled with tales of crime and murder, as well as love, this story begins in 1932. The Stanolis, by author Dr. Vincent M.M. Galici Sr., deals with the main characters in greater depth in a complex storyline. Incidents and characters, both familiar and new, are reintroduced and advanced. The suspense rages on, and the scenic, historic, psychological, spiritual, and social crescendo continues to build.

California Cures!: How The California Stem Cell Program Is Fighting Your Incurable Disease!

Book Short Summary:

Thirteen years ago, America faced an epidemic of chronic disease: cancer, paralysis, blindness, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes and more. But California voters said "YES!" to a $3 billion stem cell research program: the awkwardly-named California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM). Born into battle, the scrappy little state agency was immediately blocked by three years of anti-science lawsuits — but it defeated them all. And then? A quiet triumph. With a focused intensity like the Manhattan Project (but for peaceful purposes, not to build a bomb), scientists funded by CIRM took on the challenges: disease and disability called chronic: incurable. In a series of connected stories, accurate though written to entertain, "California Cures" relates a war: science against disease, with lives on the line. Think what it means for a paralyzed young man to recover the use of his hands, or for a formerly-blind mother to see her teenaged children — for the first time! Do you know the "bubble-baby" syndrome? Infants without a proper immune system typically die young; a common cold can kill. But for eighteen babies in a stem cell clinical trial, a different future: they were cured of their disease. No one can predict the pace of science, nor say when cures will come; but California is bringing the fight. The reader will meet the scientists involved, the women and men behind the microscope, and share their struggle. Above all, "California Cures" is a call for action. Washington may argue about the expense of health care (and who will get it), but California works to bring down the mountain of medical debt: stem cell therapies to ease suffering, and save lives. Will California build on success — and invest $5 billion more in stem cell research? "We have the momentum," says author Don C Reed, "We dare not stop short. Chronic disease threatens everyone — we are fighting for your family, and mine!"

Book Short Summary:

In #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen’s The Forever Dream, a novel that Johanna Lindsey calls “a dynamite love story,” an extraordinary man promises nothing less than love without end. Jared Ryker is a gifted genetic scientist. But the brilliant recluse has never found anyone he can share his life with—until he meets Tania Orlinov, the incomparable prima ballerina and Soviet defector who expresses the exquisite beauty of love in a way that only dance can reveal. But Tania has no interest in love, which only fuels Jared’s attraction, one that grows into an obsession. As Jared gets closer to Tania, he is torn between compassion and overpowering desire. When their passion flares, they both are stunned by its depth and intensity. But their private fantasy is shattered by powerful forces that are determined to seize control of Jared’s research, which holds the key to an astonishing secret. As a deadly confrontation looms, Jared and Tania prepare to fight for their lives—and for the freedom to build a future in each other’s arms. Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Flirting with Disaster, Taking Shots, and Long Simmering Spring.

Book Short Summary:

Both brawls and elaborate martial arts have kept movie audiences on the edges of their seats since cinema began. But the filming of fight scenes has changed significantly through the years—mainly for the safety of the combatants—from improvised scuffles in the Silent Era to exquisitely choreographed and edited sequences involving actors, stuntmen and technical experts. Camera angles prevented many a broken nose. Examining more than 300 films—from The Spoilers (1914) to Road House (1989)—the author provides behind-the-scenes details on memorable melees starring such iconic tough-guys as John Wayne, Randolph Scott, Robert Mitchum, Lee Marvin, Charles Bronson, Clint Eastwood, Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris and Jackie Chan.

Book Short Summary:

Few things bring more happiness than those we achieve with our determination and self-control, when we lose weight, when we quit a bad habit, if we had a dependence on drugs and we are cleaned now, or if we were alcoholic and we overcome this weakness, we get a sense of real accomplishment like no other, because is indeed a monster we have defeated, “our own mind”, this mind guide me through all my life with many mistaken decisions, but I have woken up to the realization that I needed to change, is in our mind the root of all our problems and very little we do to remediate, because of the order we prioritize things we put our minds on autopilot, thinking we don’t need to feed it anymore, but is in there where the secret to very real and permanent changes is hidden, we tend to exaggerate our problems whatever they are and expand them to make others feel sympathy for us, we need so much attention and this is one reason social media is so successful, many different state of minds, depressions and erratic behaviors this is why many jobs can be problematic despite of how great the work environment might be; behind this display of tough or toxic personalities we are in reality very lonely and fragile, there is no doubt we need to change for the people we love, because usually they are always the ones we hurt the most, the great majority of us have a good personality but we mostly reflect on the outside what our present emotions dictate, our minds fly away with so many worries, anxieties, frustrated desires and dreams, and little do we realize is just a decision, a mental attitude, we want the world to be miserable and in line with our mental state, many just become absent their mind is always somewhere distance, a reaction to a frustrated desire or our rejection to the present reality, but in this equation there is a factor that plays a major role in everything we do “our spirit”, this spirit will always be hungry and whatever we feed it, will have serious consequences in our entire existence, present and distance. I apologize for using my personal life as an example in many situations is not to be vain but to help others learn from my mistakes. This book is a little of my personal experience my small token, I’m not a professional nor a religious expert but my personal view from the perspective of a simple man, I have changed many things in my life, I’m always working on some others I still need to change every day, but now I’m aware of this fierce battle within, I take one day at a time, there are some days I lose this battle but I don’t allow this defeats to take over my life, I get up the next day with a will to fight to be better and not just for me anymore but for my creator, for my family and because this world needs so much change, and since we can’t change the world, if we individually change, we will create a chain reaction, if we change, others will change too, our love ones might get the very best version of you and when we feed the spirit properly we will never feel lonely anymore; as with many self-help, spiritual books take only the things that might help you even if you only find something small, a little knowledge may go a long way, my mother always told me, even from the ignorant you can learn something, and in this case, the ignorant is me, take this humble message from my mother and perhaps here you might find something to set you truly free; this book is spiritual but even if you disagree with some things, disregard them and continue, I don’t want to change your mind, I want to change your heart, open your heart; among the pages here you might find be the answer you were looking for, you might find a word to gain strength and a word to stand firm through the hurricanes and tornados of life; you might find some things I mention more than once but I truly believe they are important, nothing is new just a reminder that I wish you will never forget.
