Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

#1 New York Times bestseller The fiery U.S. Senator from Massachusetts and bestselling author offers a passionate, inspiring book about why our middle class is under siege and how we can win the fight to save it Senator Elizabeth Warren has long been an outspoken champion of America’s middle class, and by the time the people of Massachusetts elected her in 2012, she had become one of the country’s leading progressive voices. Now, at a perilous moment for our nation, she has written a book that is at once an illuminating account of how we built the strongest middle class in history, a scathing indictment of those who have spent the past thirty-five years undermining working families, and a rousing call to action. Warren grew up in Oklahoma, and she’s never forgotten how difficult it was for her mother and father to hold on at the ragged edge of the middle class. An educational system that offered opportunities for all made it possible for her to achieve her dream of going to college, becoming a teacher, and, later, attending law school. But now, for many, these kinds of opportunities are gone, and a government that once looked out for working families is instead captive to the rich and powerful. Seventy-five years ago, President Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal ushered in an age of widespread prosperity; in the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan reversed course and sold the country on the disastrous fiction called trickle-down economics. Now, with the election of Donald Trump--a con artist who promised to drain the swamp of special interests and then surrounded himself with billionaires and lobbyists--the middle class is being pushed ever closer to collapse. Written in the candid, high-spirited voice that is Warren’s trademark, This Fight Is Our Fight tells eye-opening stories about her battles in the Senate and vividly describes the experiences of hard-working Americans who have too often been given the short end of the stick. Elizabeth Warren has had enough of phony promises and a government that no longer serves its people--she won’t sit down, she won’t be silenced, and she will fight back.

Explanation of the Book:

For decades, traditional medicine had very little to offer for individuals suffering from multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune diseases. Today, medical science has brought us wave upon wave of immunomodulatory medications to try to slow disease progression. Unfortunately, these medications come with their own health- and life-threatening side effects. And sometimes, they just stop working. “Fighting the Dragon: How I Beat Multiple Sclerosis” is the story of one woman's thirty year battle with multiple sclerosis and what she did to reclaim her life when she realized she would need an assisted living facility within a few years. The book contains detailed descriptions of what worked and what did not, where she got the help she needed (and how the reader can locate these resources within his/her own community), and the logic behind the non-conventional therapies. “Fighting the Dragon” is a narrative of courage—courage driven by desperation, a story written by a patient who decided, when her neurologist told her, “You will never walk normally again,” that she would dance. "Fighting the Dragon" is also a book the MS patient can take to his/her physician . . . it contains well-researched, easy-to-follow guidelines for what to do and how. The information is also applicable to a wide range of other autoimmune conditions, cancers, and AIDS. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Excerpt: . . . if your car kept breaking down and the mechanic you took it to kept doing the same thing to fix it—but it did not stay fixed, you would question the mechanic's competence. Maybe the mechanic pulled out a technical manual. “See. I fixed it exactly as the manual said. This is the industry-approved way to solve this problem.” When the car broke down again a week later, would you be satisfied? Probably not. You might decide it is time to replace the car. But that might be too expensive. So, what to do? If you were smart, you would probably try to find a new mechanic. You might ask your friends who they would recommend. You might search on the Internet to see if other people had the same experience with their cars . . . and what caused the problem. You might telephone some repair shops to get some idea of what they thought the problem might be. If you found a new mechanic and that mechanic looked over the car and said, “I have a solution that is not in any industry-approved repair manuals, but it is safe and it works,”—would you walk away and go back to the first mechanic who never got it right? Why is your health worth any less than your car?

Explanation of the Book:

The Mises Institute is thrilled to bring back this popular guide to ridiculous economic policy from the ancient world to modern times.

Explanation of the Book:

One of the benefits of social media is getting to meet the parents of special needs children and adults. I have grown to know and truly admire these brave people. Our solitary journeys have taken many different roads, yet we've all connected on sites like Facebook, Twitter, and other forums. The support we give each other is a lifeline-an opportunity to not only share the joys our sons and daughters bring into our lives, but also the chance to rant about the frequent injustices we meet head on. I am honoured to have 'met' so many fantastic Warrior Mums from around the world, so honoured that I decided to feature some of their stories in a blog series, which I have now reproduced in this book. These mums will inspire you, just like they have me, these brave women who share their stories from childhood to motherhood and reveal far more than they normally would, in the hope their stories will help others.

Explanation of the Book:

Marine Corporal Sean Nichols is wounded in a devastating ambush that takes the lives of his three friends and leaves him an amputee. If not for the heroism of his sergeant, Deke Tilman, who pulled him out of the road, Sean would have surely died with his fire team. With the help of Deke, Sean now embarks on his next mission-recuperate from his serious injuries, and visit the families of his fallen comrades as he tries to make peace with such profound loss. Battle Scars is a thought provoking drama with compelling characters that illustrates the resiliency and strength of the human spirit, the power of love and friendship, and the ability to overcome even our darkest moments. Gritty realism and original storytelling breathe life into Battle Scars as it inspires us with a surprising tale of heroism and the great sacrifice made by our modern war fighters. "Battle Scars is an incredible story of brothers in arms and the bonds formed in combat. The struggles that are faced by combat veterans returning from war are real and nothing I've read brings that story to life like Battle Scars. This is a must read!" LTCOL T. Kevin White "TK" 150th Special Operations Wing "This book is a gut check for those who have worn the cloth of the nation. For those who have not it is a testimonial for those who have served and sacrificed. As Americans we are blessed with freedom. It comes at a price." James E. Livingston Major General USMC (Ret) Medal of Honor Recipient "This book was a tough read, and at the same time I couldn't put it down. Salkin got this one right! Every now and again you come across a book that is as much cathartic as it is entertaining. At a time when we are losing way too many Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines, it struck a chord with this Old Soldier." COL William L. Peace, Sr. U.S. Army National Guard "David Salkin has fired at close range and with unerring accuracy with this tale! He takes a tough situation that is all-too-often neglected and gives it life. This story is for all veterans and their supporters. His first-person writing style makes the reader feel present throughout the story. It's a quick read that will leave you thinking long after completion. I most strongly recommend it to all who are interested in understanding better the true costs of America's conflicts-past, present, and future. " Major General GT Garrett, USA (Ret) 42nd Infantry Division "David Salkin's story is a must-read for all Veterans and supporters. This book not only entertains you, it educates you on the price paid by those who have the guts to walk the walk. His first-person writing takes you on a ride which seems to bring out all emotions and it also places you right on the battlefield. Maybe it's just my love of heroic deeds but it sure knocked me on my knees. The read is overall life-like and is very consistent with the actions taking place every day in Iraq and Afghanistan. Kudos to Dave for really knocking this one out of the park" Christian S. DiMeo (Ret) SFC. USMC / Embassy Marine Cairo/Beirut/Geneva - ARMY NG / Operation Enduring Freedom "Battle Scars" hits like an RPG!

Explanation of the Book:

Where am I? I am lost. Suddenly I hear the Voice, I see the Light. In the deepest throes of confusion and heartache comes the Light that reunites one with the universe. From the death of a loved one emerges a newfound acceptance and the ultimate freedom of the soul. In a swirl of injustice and hypocrisy, the soul valiantly fights back. These healing lessons and many more are the topics of The Battle and Victory of the Soul, South African poet Nozipho Zubane's inspiring and mystical collection that draws from her own painful experiences and spiritual growth. Anyone who is seeking words of comfort and encouragement to turn their own lives around will find much solace and support in these thought-provoking, healing meditations. Written for seekers of all ages and walks of life, this stirring collection represents an authentic and true expression of the raw emotions Nozipho confronted when she found herself at a crucial crossroads in her own life. After resolving to remove herself from the toxic corporate environment in which she existed, the poet embarked on a course to search for greater purpose and meaning. After two years with no job and an empty savings account, she was driven to live as a recluse. It was then that she underwent the deep emotional cleansing that transformed her life. Initially longing for intellectual stimulation, human contact, and material comfort, she endured many dark nights of the soul, to ultimately be saved by the grace of God. Whether gently illustrating the redemptive power of the soul or reconsidering the complexity of love, each poem furthers the book's abiding goal to help other people heal their wounds in order to reach their full potential. With its fresh perspective and all-embracing approach, The Battle and Victory of the Soul is certain to offer individuals a lifeline to reconnect with their souls in new and restorative ways. It's a spiritual wealth of hope and healing that may just bring new light to the darkest days.

Explanation of the Book:

YOU DESERVE A FIGHTING CHANCE!!! Even if you have lost 75 percent of your retirement savings, it is possible to recuperate this loss conservatively in about four years. No matter your age, this book can help you retire much earlier than you may have thought. How can this be done? Not by seeking the "big one" or by taking huge risks but instead by using a systematic, conservative, insured, time-tested strategy with the goal of making a 4 percent return on your money per month. You may be saying to yourself, "How I am going to regain all the retirement money I've lost with only 4 percent returns?" The secret is to earn this amount per month. If you can achieve that goal, you will earn a 48 percent return annually when you compound that 4 percent over a period of 12 months. With those results, even if you lost 75 percent of your retirement savings, you should be able to regain everything you've lost in about four years.

Editor: Unknown
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Mind Your Thoughts is a book that will help you quiet and focus your thoughts so you speak directly to your unconscious state of being in a language the mind understands. Meditation is nothing more than relaxation, and in a meditative state, your conscious can relax and allow you to speak directly to the unconscious. The unconscious is in charge of your life, even though you allow your conscious to be in control. If you want to experience change in your life, you need to learn to bypass the conscious control which can be described as critical, analytical, and most of all judgmental. Meditating through relaxation is how you reprogram your unconscious with new concepts and information. The unconscious learns by applying this information against the storage of all your memories, experiences, reactions, and emotions. Also, the unconscious is much more accepting of change because it processes information without judgment. You will see both mental and physical changes resulting from this process. Practice with the thoughts in this book; your unconscious will understand even if your conscious seems confused. Mind your thoughts and experience a human metamorphosis from the inside out. The purpose of meditation is to quiet the mind. Meditation removes the clutter of thoughts from everyday life, and also helps you to get in touch with your higher consciousness. It does take practice, so do not become discouraged. Set aside 45 minutes each evening before you go to sleep. Sit in a quiet room, in a comfortable and relaxed position wearing loose clothing. Close your eyes and take a deep breath in through your nose and let it out slowly through your mouth. With each breath in, clear your mind of all thoughts, and feel your body relax. Repeat this 9 times before beginning. This book contains 81 thoughts for you to meditate on. There are 9 sets of 9 thoughts each. Start with Set One and allow 5 minutes of meditation for each thought. After your initial warm up of 9 deep breaths, read the first thought of the first set. Close your eyes and continue your deep breathing as you reflect on the thought and what it may mean to you and your life. Think of nothing else. Repeat this with each thought until you complete Set One. It will take you at least 9 evenings to get through all of the sets in the book. You may want to repeat a set over and over again before moving on to the next set. Eventually, you will have your favorite thoughts that you will want to dedicate your meditations on. Most people enjoy thoughts of wisdom, but rarely take the time to internalize them enough to be life changing. Practice mindfulness in life and create ripples that will forever change your life. This is not an instructional book on the art of meditation.

Pages: 286

Available:
Release: 2005
Editor: Mercer University Press
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Undaunted by the Fight is a study of small but dedicated, group of Spelman College students and faculty who, between 1957 and 1967 risked their lives, compromised their grades, and jeopardized their careers to make Atlanta and the South a more just and open society. Lefever argues that the participation of Spelman's students and faculty in the Civil Rights Movement represented both a continuity and a break with the institution's earlier history. On the one hand their actions were consistent with Spelman's long history of liberal arts and community service; yet, on the other hand; as his research documents; their actions represented a break with Spelman's traditional non-political stance and challenged the assumption that social changes should occur only gradually and within established legal institutions. For the first time in the eighty-plus years of Spelman's existence, the students and faculty who participated in the Movement took actions that directly challenged the injustices of the social and political status quo. Too often in the past the Movement literature, including the literature on the Atlanta Movement focused disproportionately on the males involved to the exclusion of the women who were equally involved, and; who, in many instances, initiated actions and provided leadership for the Movement. Lefever concludes his study by saying that Spelman's activist students and faculty succeeded to the extent they did because they kept their eyes on the prize. They endured the struggle; he says; and, in so doing; eventually won many prizes -- some personal, others social. Undaunted; they liberated themselves, but at the same time they liberated their school, their city and the larger society.
