Book Excerpt :

No one, not even god can write a perfect end for you! Unless he is dying. Mighty and irreplaceable as they are, words are lethal weapons that change lives… by sometimes linking two hearts and sometimes shattering everything irreparably. But when they are woven into promises, the change lasts forever. He had almost lost himself when she brought him back to life with her promises. Dying from a dreadful tumour, every night before they went to sleep, she took a portion of his heart and soul as promises. For better or worse, he'd have to keep the promises for the rest of his life. On his journey of fulfilling those promises, his bond is strengthened with all those who, like him, are keeping their promises. What were those amusing, surprising and painful promises they all kept? Can you live and die…both at the same time? Meet the girl who changed the lives of the people she loved, and those who find their true selves in Keeping the Promises.

Book Short Summary:

If there were no problems, then it wouldn’t be life now, would it? Some conflicts are internal—like making personal decisions or healing emotional scars—while others are external—like dealing with difficult situations or getting past obstacles. Your past is surely not what you can judge yourself with but it can be beautiful like- ones of school memories. Relationships usually tend to hurt. They leave you broken, but a relationship with a teacher is certainly not amongst them. The resolution, the sense of satisfaction comes by restoring our connections, isn’t it? The more connections you and your lover make, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together. This book will explore the beauty of the presence of a magnanimous teacher into a student’s life whose good humour conveyed the sense of happiness bringing about the teaching moment into focus. Shades of Promises will teach you to keep every promise you can make and only make promises you can keep. We live in a world built by promises constructed by the liars but the book will tell you how promises are like the full moon that diminishes day by day if shattered.

Book Short Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • President Joe Biden, the author of Promise Me, Dad, tells the story of his extraordinary life and career prior to his emergence as Barack Obama’s beloved, influential vice president. “I remain captivated by the possibilities of politics and public service. In fact, I believe that my chosen profession is a noble calling.”—Joe Biden Joe Biden has both witnessed and participated in a momentous epoch of American history. In Promises to Keep, Joe Biden reveals what these experiences taught him about himself, his colleagues, and the institutions of government. With his customary candor and wit, Biden movingly recounts growing up in a staunchly Catholic multigenerational household in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware; overcoming personal tragedy, life-threatening illness, and career setbacks; his relationships with presidents, with world leaders, and with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle; and his leadership of powerful Senate committees. Through these and other recollections, Biden shows us how the guiding principles he learned early in life—to work to make people’s lives better; to honor family and faith; to value persistence, candor, and honesty—are the foundation on which he has based his life’s work as husband, father, and public servant. Promises to Keep is an intimate series of reflections from a public servant who surmounted numerous challenges to become one of our most effective leaders and who refuses to be cynical about politics. It is also a stirring testament to the promise of the United States. Praise for Promises to Keep “A ripping good read . . . Biden is a master storyteller and has stories worth telling.”—The Christian Science Monitor “A compelling personal story.”—The New York Times “Moving . . . [Biden’s] response to tragedy and near death [is] both admirable and likable.”—Salon

Book Short Summary:

Imagine a set of simple principles that could help you to understand how parts combine to become a whole, and how each part sees the whole from its own perspective. If such principles were any good, it shouldn’t matter whether we’re talking about humans on a team, birds in a flock, computers in a datacenter, or cogs in a Swiss watch. A theory of cooperation ought to be pretty universal, so we should be able to apply it both to technology and to the workplace. Such principles are the subject of Promise Theory, and the focus of this insightful book. The goal of Promise Theory is to reveal the behavior of a whole from the sum of its parts, taking the viewpoint of the parts rather than the whole. In other words, it is a bottom-up, constructionist view of the world. Start Thinking in Promises and find out why this discipline works for documenting system behaviors from the bottom-up.

Book Short Summary:

After several decades of reform and opening up, China has come to a critical period of transformation and development. How to improve the development strategies to effectively promote China's democratic politics has once again attracted the world's attention. This book compares the commons and differences between western and Chinese theories and practices of democracy model, and proposes a new democracy model for China's political reform — "cooperative-harmonious democracy". Absorbing the core values of democracy, this model draws on Chinese traditional "harmony and cooperation" and "people-oriented" thought, as well as modern cooperative game theory. More importantly, it adopts the new model to analyse some present practice cases in China, involving intra-party democracy, electoral democracy, and deliberative democracy. This book is a valuable theoretical innovation and a significant achievement in promoting the interdisciplinary research of political science and public management. It strategically reflects on how to promote the development of cooperative-harmonious democracy from the perspective of high-level design. The policy suggestions it proposed will be a valuable reference for policy-makers.

Book Short Summary:

There are two grades of human beings, high and low. Their grades have nothing to do with material wealth, title etc... But have something to do with character wealth. These character grades determine whether one is likeable or not, and if one lives a happy and meaningful life or not. High grades enrich other’s lives while low grades tire and bore others. High character grade doesn't mean "perfect" but is the one and probably the only one important factor in life. Not only in relating to others but also in relation to oneself. Material wealth doesn't matter much once economic independence is achieved, but character wealth matters most in life. For instance, high grades are always suffi cient in life no matter what, while low grades are always insuffi cient. Not only that, you always have to be careful of low grades since they are opportunistic and manipulative, therefore using others. While high grades are genuine, therefore enriching not only other’s lives but also their own lives.

Book Short Summary:

The greatest joy and fulfillment are within your reach, but they require an enduring Promise to The One…someone you might not expect. It’s not your boss, your spouse, your children, or others—no, the ultimate commitment is The Promise you make to yourself to discover your purpose and gifts and share them with the world. Everyone has been hurt or negatively impacted by broken promises. Promise-breaking and a lack of integrity are symptomatic of the most chronic illness faced by society today. Even though many leadership courses and ethics programs tout “integrity” as a buzzword, few of us are really assessing our own values unless someone calls us out on a discrepancy. But even when others don’t catch on to the façade, when our values aren’t in alignment with our actions and when our actions aren’t consonant with our gifts and passions, we’re left feeling isolated, drained, and depressed. No recognition or acceptance from others can fill the void in the same way as when you keep a Promise to yourself and actually follow through on it. The Promise is the highest level of engagement we commit to in any experience. The Promise is greater than a goal—it’s a sacred commitment. It’s complete dedication to identifying your Signature Moves—the unique talents you’ve been given that, when developed and used to better others’ lives, make you a Legendary Leader. What choices do you make when no one is watching? How do you approach a decision that requires you to let either yourself or someone else down? How do you stay committed to your values, even when the less-rewarding path is more convenient? A renowned speaker and performer who has helped audiences worldwide appreciate what accountability really means, Jason Hewlett shares his program for self-discovery and taking ownership of your gifts in The Promise to The One. His unique three-step method—IDENTIFY • CLARIFY • MAGNIFY—will enable you to pinpoint your strengths, shape them into an identity to which you commit, and develop them so that they can improve others’ lives as well as your own. Filled with Jason’s signature wit and vulnerability as well as actionable exercises, this book will help you refine your character and reach your dreams through the power of kept Promises. Start your journey to living a life of Promise Making and Keeping…beginning with The Promise to The One.

  • Pdf File: how-to-be-trustworthy.pdf

Book Short Summary:

We become untrustworthy when we break our promises, miss our deadlines, or offer up unreliable information. If we aim to be a trustworthy person, we need to act in line with our existing commitments and we must also take care not to bite off more than we can chew when new opportunities come along. But often it is not clear what we will be able to manage, what obstacles may prevent us from keeping our promises, or what changes may make our information unreliable. In the face of such uncertainties, trustworthiness typically directs us towards caution and hesitancy, and away from generosity, spontaneity, or shouldering burdens for others. In How To Be Trustworthy, Katherine Hawley explores what trustworthiness means in our lives and the dilemmas which arise if we value trustworthiness in an uncertain world. She argues there is no way of guaranteeing a clean conscience. We can become untrustworthy by taking on too many commitments, no matter how well-meaning we are, yet we can become bad friends, colleagues, parents, or citizens if we take on too few commitments. Hawley shows that we can all benefit by being more sensitive to obstacles to trustworthiness, and recognising that those who live in challenging personal circumstances face greater obstacles than other members of society—whether visibly or invisibly disadvantaged through material poverty, poor health, social exclusion, or power imbalances.

Book Short Summary:

Creative Morality is a philosophical study of moral dilemmas. Western moral thought has relied on two basic ethical perspectives - Utilitarianism and Kantianism - to resolve dilemmas. MacNiven argues that no real progress can be made with modern moral problems unless these tradtions are coherently synthesised. The book deals with diverse topics such as academic honesty, medical confidentiality, terrorism and euthanasia and the hypothetical dilemmas used are based on real life situations so that theory might be tested against reality. Yet the solutions are not definitive because, as MacNiven demonstrates, creativity is an intrinsic characteristic of moral thought.

Book Short Summary:

A mysterious man means trouble for a pediatrician and the baby she swears to protect in this romantic suspense novel by the author of Magnolia Sky. Molly Boudreau has worked all her life to become a doctor. She’s overcome every obstacle in her path—of which there were many coming from a single-parent home in small town Indiana. But as she stands on the threshold of her dreams, she realizes her quest has left her isolated, she yearns for a soul-stirring connection. And her prayers are soon answered. Sarah Morgan, a pregnant woman with a secret past, shows up at Molly’s clinic. Molly suspects a woman in hiding. Two souls, both needing friendship, soon find it in one another . . . But Sarah is murdered only days after giving birth, and after extracting a promise from Molly to protect the baby from its unnamed father—a man Sarah swore was evil, a man Molly suspects killed her. Molly risks both her safety and career when she flees Boston and returns to her Indiana hometown. With everyone assuming the infant is hers, she has no trouble hiding the much more explosive truth until magazine reporter Dean Coletta arrives, asking probing questions. Molly tries to guard her heart, but Dean soon fires that emotional connection she’s been craving. But Dean has a secret of his own—one that threatens both Molly and the future of the child she loves more than life itself. “This heartwarming tale depicts typical midwestern small-town life, where everybody knows everyone else’s business and is equally willing to meddle or extend a helping hand—and to close ranks against outsiders threatening one of their own.” —Booklist

Book Short Summary:

From bestselling author Genevieve Graham comes a novel of love, loss, and honour amidst the horrors of war and its aftermath. In the summer of 1916, Private Daniel Baker marches into battle with the boys of Nova Scotia’s 25th Battalion. Out of brutal necessity, Danny has steeled himself against the trials and horrors of war, but he is completely unprepared to meet the love of his life in war-torn France. Audrey Poulin has the soul of an artist. She lives alone with her grandmother in the quiet French countryside, where her only joy is in her brush and palette. When, by chance, she encounters Danny, the handsome young soldier captures her heart and inspires her painting. The young lovers believe that only together can they face the hardships the war brings. But love is just the beginning. Mere months later, Danny is gravely wounded at the Battle of the Somme, and his future is thrown into uncertainty. Soon, he and Audrey find themselves struggling to build a new life in Halifax, a city grieving its lost men. As the grey winter of 1917 sets in, Danny’s lack of purpose and Audrey’s isolation continue to mount, pulling the two apart just as a new catastrophe threatens their existence. Heartrending and enthralling, Tides of Honour is a novel of love and second chances set against Halifax’s most devastating moment of the First World War.

Book Short Summary:

Imagine a set of simple principles that could help you to understand how parts combine to become a whole, and how each part sees the whole from its own perspective. If such principles were any good, it shouldn’t matter whether we’re talking about humans on a team, birds in a flock, computers in a datacenter, or cogs in a Swiss watch. A theory of cooperation ought to be pretty universal, so we should be able to apply it both to technology and to the workplace. Such principles are the subject of Promise Theory, and the focus of this insightful book. The goal of Promise Theory is to reveal the behavior of a whole from the sum of its parts, taking the viewpoint of the parts rather than the whole. In other words, it is a bottom-up, constructionist view of the world. Start Thinking in Promises and find out why this discipline works for documenting system behaviors from the bottom-up.

Book Short Summary:

Calvinist determinism destroys moral responsibility and makes God the author of sin. These two accusations are not new, and were arguably anticipated by Paul in Romans 9, but they remain today the most important objections offered against Calvinist/determinist views of human free will. This book is a philosophically rigorous and comprehensive defense of Calvinism against these two families of arguments. With respect to human moral responsibility, it discusses whether determinism destroys “free will,” turns humans into pets or puppets, and involves or is analogous to coercion and manipulation. It responds to the consequence argument and direct argument for incompatibilism, the principle of alternate possibilities, the “ought implies can” maxim, and related claims. With respect to the authorship of sin, it discusses whether Calvinist determinism improperly involves God in evil. Does it mean that “God sins,” or “causes sin,” or “wills sin” in problematic ways? “Does God intend our sin, or (merely) permit sin?” In each case the coherence of the Calvinist view is defended against its most potent objections, to reject the claim that Calvinism is “excusing sinners and blaming God.”

Book Short Summary:

As soon as there was sin, there was a Savior. From times eternal, God knew that Satan would introduce sin into planet earth, infecting its inhabitants. Out of His great love for the human family, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit united in carrying out the great plan of redemption and in fulfilling the everlasting covenant of grace. In Mark’s hard-hitting Gospel, the Son of God suddenly appears, rising out of the Jordan River, hair wet, anointed by the heavenly dove and surrounded by the thunder-like echo of His Father’s approval. From this point on, all of Jesus’ recorded words and actions move steadily and unflinchingly toward Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, where He suffered and died for the redemption of humankind. Popular beliefs about the covenant have fragmented God’s interactions with the human race, insisting that God’s plan of redemption for the Jews on Sinai had little or nothing to do with His plan of redemption for new covenant believers. Taking his cue from Paul’s aligning of God’s new covenant promise with His covenant with Abraham and from Peter’s New Testament repetition of God’s promise of His people being “a holy nation,” Dr. Hubert F. Sturges argues convincingly and biblically that there is more continuity than discontinuity in God’s covenants with the human race. Tracing God’s saving actions through Scripture and history, Dr. Sturges reveals the strategic steps that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit took in fulfilling their continuing commitment to the human family. With bite-sized chapters, divided into three sections, More Than a Promise: The Everlasting Covenant as Presented Throughout Historywill cause you to reflect on God’s great love and mercy for the human race.
