Don't Panic with Mechanics! Book Review:

There are a lot of textbooks for mechanics - why another one? Because reading this book should be fun - but as a side effect the reader should also learn the basics of mechanics without suffering to much! Or to say it more officially: The scope of the textbook is to teach mechanics by means of simple examples from everyday life instead of sophisticated scientific approaches. The examples, supported by a lot of cartoons, should help to learn by associations and practical experiences. Many exercises with solutions garanty to pass exams successfully. A similar book has not existed before - the terms "mechanics" and "fun" have always been contradictious. Besides students from the disciplines of mechanical or electrical engineering, civil engineering, physics, and chemistry also practitioners will enjoy reading this book.

American Literature in the Era of Trumpism Book Review:

This edited collection offers an exploration of American literature in the age of Trumpism—understood as an ongoing sociopolitical and affective reality—by bringing together analyses of some of the ways in which American writers have responded to the derealization of political culture in the United States and the experience of a ‘new’ American reality after 2016. The volume’s premise is that the disruptions and dislocations that were so exacerbated by the political ascendancy of Trump and his spectacle-laden presidency have unsettled core assumptions about American reality and the possibilities of representation. The blurring of the relationship between fact and fiction, bolstered by the discourses of ‘fake news’ and ‘alternative facts,’ has not only drawn attention to the shattering of any notion of ‘shared’ reality, but has also forced a reexamination of the purpose and value of literature, especially when considering its troubled relation to the representation of ‘America.’ The authors in this collection respond to the invitation to reassess the workings of fiction and critique in an age of Trumpism by considering some of the most recent literary responses to the (new) American realit(ies)—including works by Colson Whitehead, Ben Winters, Claudia Rankine, Gary Shteyngart, Jennifer Egan, and Steve Erickson, to name but a few—, some of which were composed in the run-up to the 2016 election but were able to accurately and incisively imagine the world to come.

The Expected One Book Review:

A gripping thriller and a profound spiritual journey that reveals the greatest story never told! Two thousand years ago, Mary Magdalene hid a set of scrolls in the rocky foothills of the French Pyrenees, a gospel that contained her own version of the events and characters of the New Testament. Protected by supernatural forces, these sacred scrolls could be uncovered only by a special seeker, one who fulfills the ancient prophecy of l'attendue—The Expected One. When journalist Maureen Paschal begins the research for a new book, she has no idea that she is stepping into an ancient mystery so secret, so revolutionary, that thousands of people have killed and died for it. She becomes deeply immersed in the mystical cultures of southwest France as the eerie prophecy of The Expected One casts a shadow over her life and work and a long-buried family secret comes to light. Ultimately she comes face-to-face with Jesus Christ, Mary Magdalene, John the Baptist, Judas, and Salome in the pages of a deeply moving and powerful new gospel, the life of Jesus as told by Mary Magdalene. CONTAINS NEW, UNPUBLISHED MATERIAL FROM THE ARQUES GOSPEL.

The Treatment of Anxiety & Panic with Bach Flower Remedies Book Review:

Anxiety being the main mental health concern for women, and second only to substance abuse in men, The Treatment of Anxiety & Panic with Bach Flower Remedies offers both a practical and comprehensive guide to everyone struggling with panic attacks, anxiety attacks, social fears, generalized anxiety, or obsessive compulsive behaviors. Representing a fluid, self-directed process to emotional healing the goal of the technique is to present a very contemporary, user-friendly, and immediate response to emotional distress. Working by specifically targeting every type of negative state of mind reveals an amazing, subtle energy approach that is neither created in the language of pop culture, nor new age therapy. By explaining step-by-step how to use one of the most effective healing tools nature has provided to us, this book in a non-clinical voice, addresses the debilitating impact of anxiety, and shows how to effectively overcome anxiety driven symptoms in order to achieve a lasting recovery. Rather than just covering up and continuing to suppress emotional difficulties with drugs, this book supplies the tools needed to manage anxiety, and after that to resolve emotional problems The information can be used to develop ones own self-help program, or, as an adjunct to other healing modalities, the technique will reliably deliver clarity and a lifetime of emotional assistance.
