Peaks and Valleys Book Review:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Who Moved My Cheese?, a brilliant new parable that shows readers how to stay calm and successful, even in the most challenging of environments. A young man lives unhappily in a valley. One day he meets an old man who lives on a mountain peak. At first the young man doesn’t realize that he is talking to one of the most peaceful and successful people in the world. But in the course of further encounters and conversations, the young man comes to understand that he can apply the old man’s remarkable principles and practical tools to his own life to change it for the better. Spencer Johnson knows how to tell a deceptively simple story that teaches deep lessons. The One Minute Manager (co-written with Ken Blanchard) sold 15 million copies and stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for more than twenty years. Since it was published a decade ago, Who Moved My Cheese? has sold more than 25 million copies. In fact there are more than 46 million copies of Spencer Johnson’s books in print, in forty-seven languages—and with today’s economic uncertainty, his new book could not be more relevant. Pithy, wise, and empowering, Peaks and Valleys is clearly destined to becomeanother Spencer Johnson classic.

Architecture of Regionalism in the Age of Globalization Book Review:

The definitive introductory book on the theory and history of regionalist architecture in the context of globalization, this text addresses issues of identity, community, and sustainability along with a selection of the most outstanding examples of design from all over the world. Alex Tzonis and Liane Lefaivre give a readable, vivid, scholarly account of this major conflict as it relates to the design of the human-made environment. Demystifying the reasons behind how globalization enabled creativity and brought about unprecedented wealth but also produced new wastefulness and ecological destruction, the book also looks at how regionalism has also tended to confine, tearing apart societies and promoting destructive consumerist tourism.

Chronicles of a Million Dollar Trader Book Review:

Praise for CHRONICLES of a MILLION DOLLAR TRADER “Focus, tenacity, self-analysis, and intensity. Don Miller conveys the essence of trading in such a compelling and down-to-earth manner—the reader literally eats, sleeps, and breathes Don’s moments of triumph and exhaustion. Don clearly nails the most pertinent points in this business: add to your position when you have a strong hand, fight to dig yourself out of the inevitable abyss, and don’t trade when you are tired. This book is what professional trading is TRULY about!” —Linda Raschke, President, LBRGroup, Inc. “My career as a broker with some of the largest futures brokerages in the world has put me in a unique position to evaluate traders. I’ve been able to observe many of the best futures traders in the industry over the past twenty years. And what I can state with certainty is that Don Miller is one of, if not the, best futures traders I’ve seen. Great traders are able to recognize and adapt to changing market environments. They take their mistakes and use them to become better traders. Great traders possess the unique discipline to manage a losing trade as well as a winning one. These are the qualities I have witnessed Don Miller master. The fact that Don has agreed to share his experiences and insights makes this book an invaluable doctrine to all traders and investors alike.” —Patrick Lafferty, President, Capital Trading Group “I’ve had the good fortune of watching Don Miller trade profitably in front a live group of full-time traders over a two-day period of time. The methods Don teaches are solid, and more importantly, as you will see here in his book, they’ve been consistently successful. This book goes further than most trading books because you get to live with Don day by day, seeing both his actual trading along with his mind frame. If you want to learn from someone who has mastered day trading, and has successfully done so for years, then this book is must reading. Highly recommended!” —Larry Connors, founder, TradingMarkets.com; author of How Markets Really Work “I have personally seen Don trade for several years, and he is candidly one of the best. His book is enlightening and helpful in understanding the mindset of a successful trader.” —Steve Demarest, President, MB Trading “A true story of sacrifice, hardship, and success. Don Miller shares his story to make $1 million in one year in real time, real trading records, and real life.” —James L. Koutoulas, Esq., CEO, Typhon

THE RHYMING LOVE Book Review:

The Rhyming Love’ is a compilation of romantic poems and Shayaris inspired by the love stories seen, sensed and witnessed by the poet. Using the primary attributes of poetry in rhyming words and ‘figure of speech,’ the poems written by the author would find resonance not just in the romantics but even the realists. The book is about ups and downs in love. I guess I fell in love only to become a poet. It took me a year to carve my emotions and my past into Poems and Shayaris. Loving someone is the special gift you can ever get in your life and to write a poem out of these moments is all you can achieve. I hope readers also relate to my Poem and Shayari and relive the beautiful moments in their love life.

Peaks and Pits Book Review:

Travelers to the Holy Land can all attest ... this truly is a land of “hills and valleys” (Deuteronomy 8:7, 11:11) and so is life! Hills and valleys, highs and lows, peaks and pits—whatever one chooses to call them, every person has some good days and some bad ones. Roger D. Mardis, a seasoned pastor, preacher, writer, and traveler, reflects on the many places and locations in the Holy Land (mountains and/or valleys), to take you on thirty-day devotional journey to learn about the land—and life. As you read, you’ll consider questions such as: What is the problem with pride? When were you tested in life—and what did you learn? What is the purpose of God’s law? What does it mean to “abide” in Christ? At the conclusion of each day’s reading, you’ll find questions like the ones above that will help you make your way on your journey—whether you’re enjoying a peak or trying to slog through a pit. Embark on a journey that will challenge your head and heart and bring you closer to the Lord with the lessons in this book.

It's Your Ship Book Review:

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.

A Thousand Valleys Book Review:

From Ken Fulmer, comes a novel about overcoming generational abuse, deciding for ourselves who we are, and forgiving those who’ve hurt us. "Fulmer boldly mingles characters’ strengths with their flaws, creating convincing, complex people..." —Booklife by Publishers Weekly "A skillfully written family tale...Fulmer's prose is taut and always a bit ominous." —Kirkus Reviews "An intriguing literary feat that examines one family’s approach to addiction, mental illness, and generational trauma." —Independent Book Review "If you’re wondering whether you should pick up this book, the answer is a definite yes. It is a life-affirming work that superbly translates family drama, the ache in the human soul, and the quest for healing. Perfect for a Christmas gift!" —The Book Commentary North Carolina, 1977.

As Christmas approaches, and a rival sister arrives, Sara’s brittle psyche threatens to rupture. For Jimmy, the uncertainties of the external world pale when measured against unrelenting family torments. In his grandparents’ home, surrounded by the trappings of a festive holiday, Jimmy learns the dreadful truth: he alone must stand.

The Creep Book Review:

"A journalist with a weakness for bending the facts uncovers a story about a medical breakthrough so astonishing it needs no embellishment--but behind the game-changing science, something darker lies. Whitney Chace is a staff writer for the prestigious New York news magazine The Bystander. A respected byline in the magazine's culture pages, Whitney grapples with an irresistible urge to enhance her coverage with intriguing, highly plausible untruths and nigh-undetectable white lies. She calls this compulsion "the creep"--an overpowering need to improve the story in the telling. And she has a particular genius for getting away with it. In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, Whitney yearns to transition from profiling rock stars and interviewing over-hyped novelists to covering the stories that "really matter." When a chance encounter brings her face-to-face with a potentially massive story about a game-changing medical discovery, Whitney thinks she has finally found a hard news story that doesn't need to be enhanced. Eva Kriss, the brilliant and charismatic young doctor behind the breakthrough, claims to have discovered "the Holy Grail of medical science": an artificial blood substitute that, if viable, promises to save millions of lives and make Dr. Kriss and her Big-Pharma backers rich beyond measure. But is Dr. Kriss's blood substitute the altruistic medical miracle she claims it is, or part of a pitiless conspiracy to push the drug through FDA approval at any cost? Set against the backdrop of the ramp-up to the Iraq War and the decline of print journalism, Michael LaPointe's infectious and ingeniously plotted debut paints an affecting portrait of an increasingly unequal twenty-first century, exploring how deceitfulness, evasion, self-enhancement and overt, confidently delivered lies can be transfused into fact and constitute a broader violence against the social fabric and public trust."--

Iberia, Land of Glaciers Book Review:

Iberia, Land of Glaciers: How The Mountains Were Shaped By Glaciers discusses the impact of past glaciers in the current landscape of Iberia. Currently, there are only small glaciers in the highest peaks of the Pyrenees that are the legacy of the last cold period that ended at the end of the 19th century: The Little Ice Age. However, an accurate observation of the landscape of the highest peaks and adjacent valleys of the Iberian Peninsula reveals a past shaped by the successive passage of glaciers with hundreds of meters of ice, similar to what happens today in the Alps or Patagonia. Iberian glaciation has resulted in ice expansion through valleys that are now used by the road network and where important populations settle; in addition, large accumulations of sediments deposited by those glaciers are still unstable today and can trigger risks for mountain populations. Iberia, Land of Glaciers presents the impact of the glaciers in the landscape of mountains following a more educational perspective with examples of 21 Iberian massifs written by specialists from each of the areas. Assesses present-day Iberian Peninsula landscape trends by understanding the past behavior of glaciers Includes the latest findings of all the major Iberian mountains in a single book Includes quality, color figures to enhance understanding of glacier formations Provides a more educational and pedagogical perspective on glacial processes to reach an audience beyond academia

Dismal Peaks and Obscure Valleys Book Review:

Jud Block grew up in Texas in the 80s and 90s; heard the siren songs of Waylon, Townes, Billy Joe, Kris, and the Scottish poetry of Stuart Adamson, which afflicted him with a love of music at an early age; lacking any vestige of a Puritan work ethic, he learned to play bass and lurked around the Arlington/Fort Worth punk rock scene with a few bands (Elysian Fields/Death Rabbis) until it became clear that fashion had usurped the music's message, and he turned in his Doc Martens; around this time he bought his first acoustic guitar and learned five chords, which he later discovered was two chords too many, but he figured if he ever decided to go into prog rock, he's covered; after leaving Texas, he didn't play in a band, or solo, again until the outskirts of the new millennium, when he took on bass duties for an all-original blues-rock band (Kenny's New Car) in Orlando, Florida; in 2001, he moved to Charlotte, NC, and formed Cattletruck terrorizing the staid mindset of the financial district for nearly 10 years and released two CDs, Bourbon and Black Crepe and Branches from the Hangin' Tree, until that beast ran off the road and was left to become one with the Earth in some backwoods pasture; In 2009, he released his first solo CD, Empty Chamber Grace, a solo acoustic collection of dark, gallows humor-infused tales heavily influenced by Townes Van Zandt, Brent Best, Eric Taylor, Tom Russell, Charles Bukowski, and Larry Brown; and in 2012, he released his second CD, Barroom Gravity, which draws from the same influences as the first, but with a bit more flesh on the bones . In 2013, he returned to his home state of Texas armed only with an acoustic guitar and a stash of incisive lyrics in search of a few folks who'll take the time to listen.
