Book Excerpt :

There is a part of us which neither listens to the voice of reason nor submit easily to social/moral conventions. Like a child, it relentlessly pursues whatever catches its fancy and keeps playing with fire. It can either help us actualize our heroic potential or put us on the road to self-destruction. Perhaps the key to this difference lies in what we do with our emotional/psychic wounds which are a necessary part of the growth process. The book explores the inner landscape of this part of our psyche through the mythological figures of Balarama, Duryodhana and Bhima. It also examines the present day context of human existence which has ironically enhanced both our prowess and helplessness and thereby pushed this part of ourselves into our psychic/social underbelly.

Book Short Summary:

There’s a crisis going on with men and boys in America. Unfortunately, most people in America aren’t talking about it. During this Man Crisis, millions of men and boys have been suffering in silence for the last three decades. As they’ve become more frustrated, angry, and despondent about a world where they believe there’s no place for them, a growing number of men are participating in self-destructive and violent behaviors. And an increasing number are committing suicide.In this book I’ll detail how the redefinition of manhood and masculinity by women has led to men being in crisis today. And how this growing crisis among men could do long-term damage to America’s culture and civilization in the future.

Book Short Summary:

Rarely has a writer and thinker of the stature of Ayn Rand afforded us access to her most intimate thoughts and feelings. From Journals of Ayn Rand, we gain an invaluable new understanding and appreciation of the woman, the artist, and the philosopher, and of the enduring legacy she has left us.Rand comes vibrantly to life as an untried screenwriter in Hollywood, creating stories that reflect her youthful vision of the world. We see her painful memories of communist Russia and her struggles to convey them in We the Living. Most fascinating is the intricate, step-by-step process through which she created the plots and characters of her two masterworks, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, and the years of painstaking research that imbued the novels with their powerful authenticity. Complete with reflections on her legendary screenplay concerning the making of the atomic bomb and tantalizing descriptions of projects cut short by her death, Journals of Ayn Rand illuminates the mind and heart of an extraordinary woman as no biography or memoir ever could. On these vivid pages, Ayn Rand lives.

The Mystique of Enlightenment is the most straightforward work ever written about enlightenment. It is a fresh, unique, priceless companion for all those on the path of self-discovery. We learn that Enlightenment might be a truth that many people seek, but for U.G. Krishnamurti, it is just a natural state. He makes it very clear that there is nothing like ecstatic enlightenment. It is just a biological phenomenon that occurs when we are entirely free of culture, conditioning, religious opinions, and intellect. The work tells the story of a man who reveals how he liberated himself clearly and directly.

Book Short Summary:

The first book in Laura Bradford’s debut Jenkins & Burns mystery series! The Jersey Shore has always been known for warm sand, lively boardwalks, and the promise of carefree summer days. This season the small scenic town of Ocean Point, New Jersey, is not nearly as carefree as tourists would hope. The discovery of the body of a young woman is the first in a string of seemingly random and senseless murders, murders connected only by a warning from the same boardwalk fortune-teller. It’s a crisis that puts local detective Mitch Burns on edge, and his job in jeopardy. It’s up to him to solve the crimes and protect the livelihood of the town, a livelihood that relies almost entirely on tourists. With the help of newly hired local reporter Elise Jenkins, the two step out to discover who the killer is, before another body is found. This book was originally published under the title Jury of One.

Book Short Summary:

What VEHICLE did we climb aboard that carried us so far from our cultural roots? How did the vast changes to society, our social framework and our relationships come about? Most importantly we must ask ourselves, "How could we become so divided? Or are we?" The answers we hear in the public discourse are wholly inadequate to address the scope of the changes. Could anyone in 1990 expected that ABC, NBC, or CBN would identify 53 Genders or that public policy, law and educational principles would be altered to grant special rights to these created genders? Could we have envisioned cities and businesses being destroyed by people claiming to be supportive of the people affected? Many feel the world has been turned upside down; the law is silent with regard to some egregious acts while being openly hostile to seemingly innocent citizens expressing their right of free speech. We have heard over and over these six powerful words: How did our nation get here? This book is designed to explain EXACTLY how we got here. You will become thoroughly aware of the plan that was set in motion, who designed it, when it began and the mechanisms used to move us to their desired end and, finally, where it will take us. You will discover that the separation of Americans by race or wealth or gender is a myth and meet the groups responsible for those myths. After reading The Blueprint for Two Americas, every news report, school board issue or city council agenda will be viewed with the perspective of the Humanist Manifestos in mind. You will be awakened to the destruction that this plan has wrought. Just as a building has a set of blueprints that direct each specialty worker to their part in bringing about the finished product, this social re-engineering has a set of blueprints, and the new society it envisions is nearly complete. This book reveals THE BLUEPRINT FOR THE TWO AMERICAS.

Book Short Summary:

In the tradition of The Sociopath Next Door, clinical psychologist Joseph Burgo’s The Narcissist You Know is a “clear, easily digestible” (Kirkus Reviews) guide to help you identify, disarm, and coexist with extreme narcissists. In today’s social media and selfie-obsessed culture, we are living in an age of narcissism—and a society that often celebrates this potentially harmful trait rather than understanding it as a psychological disorder. Scientists are beginning to learn that narcissism exists on a spectrum—much like autism—and most of us exhibit some mild narcissistic tendencies. But one in twenty people fall into a category the author refers to as Extreme Narcissism, in which these self-absorbed characteristics result in destructive behavior that harms not only the individual but everyone around them, including friends, family, and coworkers. With more than thirty years of experience studying personality disorders and treating extreme narcissists, Dr. Joseph Burgo has developed a useful guidebook to help you “spot narcissists out there in the wild” (Glamour) and then understand and manage the narcissistic personalities in your own life. Relying on detailed profiles, vignettes from the author’s practice, and celebrity biographies, The Narcissist You Know offers easy-to-understand tools and solutions you can use to defuse hostile situations and survive assaults on your self-esteem should you ever find yourself in an extreme narcissist’s orbit.

Book Short Summary:

All parents want their daughters to marry godly young men. But which qualities, specifically, should they be looking for? What will you say when that certain young man sits down in your living room, sweaty-palmed and tongue-tied, and asks your permission to marry your daughter? What criteria should he meet before the two of them join together for life? What He Must Be... If He Wants to Marry My Daughter outlines ten qualities parents should look for in a son-in-law, including trustworthiness, a willingness to lead his family, an understanding of his wife's role, and various spiritual leadership qualities. Author Voddie Baucham follows up on his popular book Family Driven Faith with this compelling apologetic of biblical manhood. By studying the principles outlined in his book, parents who want their daughter to marry a godly man-as well as those who want their sons to become godly men-will be well equipped to help their children look for and develop these God-honoring qualities.

Book Short Summary:

George Washington may be the most famous American who ever lived, and certainly is one of the most admired. While surrounded by myths, it is no myth that the man who led Americans’ fight for independence and whose two terms in office largely defined the presidency was the most highly respected individual among a generation of formidable personalities. This record hints at an enigmatic perfection; however, Washington was a flesh-and-blood man. In First and Always, celebrated historian Peter Henriques illuminates Washington’s life, more fully explicating his character and his achievements. Arranged thematically, the book’s chapters focus on important and controversial issues, achieving a depth not possible in a traditional biography. First and Always examines factors that coalesced to make Washington such a remarkable and admirable leader, while also chronicling how Washington mistreated some of his enslaved workers, engaged in extreme partisanship, and responded with excessive sensitivity to criticism. Henriques portrays a Washington deeply ambitious and always hungry for public adoration, even as he disclaimed such desires. In its account of an amazing life, First and Always shows how, despite profound flaws, George Washington nevertheless deserves to rank as the nation's most consequential leader, without whom the American experiment in republican government would have died in infancy.

Book Short Summary:

5200 years long interval Srimad Bhagavad Gita in its authentic and everlasting exposition. Yatharth Geeta – The Geeta in its True Perspective Shreemad Bhagwad Geeta - Science of Religion for Mankind What were the inner feelings and emotions of Shri Krishn when he preached the Geeta? All inner feelings cannot be expressed in words. Some can be told, some are expressed through the body language, and the rest are to be realised which can only be understood by a seeker through experiences. Only after attaining the state which Shri Krishn had been to, an accomplished teacher knows what Geeta says. He simply does not reiterate verses of the Geeta but, in fact, gives experiences to the inner feelings of the Geeta. This is possible because he sees the same picture which was there when Shri Krishn preached the Geeta. He therefore, sees the real meaning, can show it to us, can evoke the inner feelings and would lead us on the path of enlightenment. Rev. Shri Paramhansji Mahraj was also an enlightened teacher of such a level and the compilation of his words and blessings to grasp the inner feelings of the Geeta itself is the 'Yatharth Geeta". – Swami Adgadanand

Book Short Summary:

There lies an astounding spiritual depth in the teachings of the Sufi Mystics. The Sufi Mysticism consists in endeavoring to reconcile the doctrines of all religions of the world through the philosophy of love. This piece of art is founded upon the teachings of the Sufi Mystics. The current problem of terrorism, in the name of Jihad, has blighted the lives of many people. This book will reveal the true meaning of Jihad, as the doctrine of Sufism accentuated on inner Jihad, which means the closing of one's heart to the inner enemies of retaliation, envy and infidelity. This book also covers the foremost topics like the mystery of love, the status of women in Sufism, science of transformation, management lessons in Sufism, relevance of the Spiritual Master, controlling the Nafs and, most significantly, the Fifteen Fundamentals of life. The book covers the teachings of Persian Mystic "Jalaluddin Muhammad Rumi" (in the world of Sufis, Rumi is the Emperor) and many other Sufi Mystics from the past. This book is a gift, an experience of the divine and therefore; it is recommended to be read periodically to reinforce the key messages of the Sufi Mystics in one's life. Remember, the path of spirituality is not easy for those who seek temporary happiness. It is a journey of hardship, and one must keep an enormous amount of patience and blind faith in the master's teachings to pursue permanent peace and happiness. Note: The author makes no claim to being either an Islamic Scholar or a Spiritual Master. The author is merely a seeker of love through the teachings of the Sufi Mystics.

Book Short Summary:

George Epstein was a mathematician, scientist, and poet. This mixture of experiences and passions came together to form the three-part poetry collection Day, Door, Soul. It presents a progressive visual journey moving from awakening through the portal and finally to divine soul transcendence, as written by a religious man with earthly connections. His collection is intended for those who are aware of the spiritual journey of life and for those who seek to unravel the mysteries of life through developing a deeper understanding of self. Epstein weaves imagery within his words to paint pictures that inspire and inform. Even through daily encounters, the greatness of life speaks in the mundane. Even a small ant on a beach has meaning. Globalism and humanity are linked to the individual good. Biblical and mythological images relate to the monotonous day by day. Epstein’s poetry asks us to face our ethical dealings, learn the art of balance in daily life, and ponder the impermanence of life as we journey from consciousness through the doorway to our soul.

Byron Zorn graduated first in his class at the prestigious Little Country Parish University. A brilliant mind, tireless researcher, and gifted speaker, Zorn aspired to serve God behind the pulpit of a large, hopefully high profile church someday. That was plan A. Then The Lord revealed plan B—assistant bishop of Holy Ground Miracle Gospel Tabernacle, a small black church in the all black South Park District. Though the position was non-salaried, and the flock had a way of making the job full time, Byron Zorn, a white man, accepted. The Bishop of South Park is the story of a young white preacher’s journey into an unfamiliar culture of black gospel distinctives and expectations. Byron Zorn understood perfectly the way the whites did church. He had yet to come to terms with the black way of doing it. “Bishop, you preach like a white man.” “I am a white man!” “Yeah, and ain’t nobody holding it against you, neither. But Bishop, you could do better.” The Bishop of South Park is a humorous and heart rending love story of sacrifice and courage within the volatile waters of interracial relationships.

Book Short Summary:

Das neunzehnte Jahrhundert in Großbritannien war geprägt von technologischen, politischen und gesellschaftlichen Veränderungen, die sich auch medial bemerkbar machten: Die Printmedien eröffneten einen Massenmarkt, der mit Publikationen für beinahe jede Bevölkerungsgruppe und verschiedenste Interessen aufwartete. Der gesellschaftliche Wandel ging zudem mit einem verstärkten Bedürfnis nach Orientierung einher, das in vielen Publikationen mithilfe der Semantik des Heroischen gestillt wurde. Als Leit- und Orientierungsfiguren sollten Helden Anhaltspunkte für die Leserschaft bieten. Durch die Untersuchung von Chambers's Journal, Fraser's Magazine, und Leisure Hour fächert der vorliegende Band verschiedene Konzeptionen des Heroischen auf dem viktorianischen Printmarkt auf und zeigt, welche unterschiedlichen didaktischen, sozialen und politischen Funktionalisierungen dem Heroischen innerhalb der sich verändernden Machtstrukturen für verschiedene Leserschichten zukamen.

Book Short Summary:

‘Reaching the Mirage Called Happiness’ written by Brig. Dr. Mrinal Nag is an endeavour to apprise fellow human beings that happiness can never be achieved by chasing it. Happiness drifts away like a mirage if we chase it but can be easily achieved by all of us if we learn to share our success with fellow human beings of the society especially with those who are poor, needy, and sick for no fault of theirs; those who need our help to be happy. Approximately 1.3 billion out 7.8 billion people in the world at present are poor and hungry. There are millions of people who are needy and sick in various parts of the world. People like Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and many others are donating to help the poor of the society. People like Florence Nightingale and Mother Teresa offered selfless service to the sick and helpless people of the world. Doctors and Nurses treated Covid-19 patients at great risk to their own lives. All these people are great examples for us. They inspire us to donate to the poor and offer our selfless service to the sick and helpless. The mindset of giving back to the society will only come to us if we learn to become good human beings first, which precedes being human. The ingredients of DISCIPLINE, if followed properly, can make us good human beings who would develop a mindset to help the needy and would even donate our own body organs to be used after our demise. The book has suggested a World Charitable Fund Trust to help the poor of the world in addition to the existing organisations. It has also suggested a recipe to achieve happiness which, if followed, will ensure happiness for all. This book may prove to be very useful for all parents, teachers, students, and young ones, to decipher the secret of achieving happiness.

Book Short Summary:

Self fulfillment is the key factor that Sir Justus Abramelech is passionate about in his manuscript to reveal to his audience a greater self awareness. Happiness and common values harmonize unity. Many of today’s problems are vast and are not always resolved as there is a great need for a since of direction when one embarks on new territory. Many relationships have been violated and without a community to share concerns or hold accountable; Sir Justus Abramelech has took it upon himself to share poetic experiences, relational values of the spiritual and physical realm to awaken the conscious mind to know the why. Logic is the connection of synergy for outside influence that benefits a community without dictatorship.
