DESCRIPTION:

Shoddy science, sketchy politics, and shady special interests have shaped American dietary recommendations–and destroyed our nation’s health–over recent decades. The phrase “death by food pyramid” isn’t shock-value sensationalism, but the tragic consequence of following federal advice and corporate manipulation in pursuit of health. In Death by Food Pyramid, Denise Minger exposes the forces that overrode common sense and solid science to launch a pyramid phenomenon that bled far beyond US borders to taint the eating habits of the entire developed world. Minger explores how generations of flawed pyramids and plates endure as part of the national consciousness, and how the “one-size-fits-all” diet mentality these icons convey pushes us deeper into the throes of obesity and disease. Regardless of whether you’re an omnivore or vegan, research junkie or science-phobe, health novice or seasoned dieter, Death by Food Pyramid will reframe your understanding of nutritional science–and inspire you to take your health, and your future, into your own hands.

Dusty Kent knows how to deal with attackers

When a popular young woman is strangled in her home in the seaside village of Murloo, the residents are sure an itinerant surfer who disappeared after the murder is the killer. However, one year later the surfer is still missing and the killer’s identity remains a mystery.

The victim’s family call in investigative journalist Dusty Kent who has an impeccable record in solving the cold cases she writes about.

However, this case tests Dusty to the limit and she despairs of ever catching the callous killer who seems to be lurking nearby and yet…

A gripping mystery imbued with the ambience of Australia–from the mysterious wood carving found with the body, the captivating characters of a small town, to the coastal splendour of the Southern Ocean.

*****

Embody

Not many Scorpio’s are known for their patience, and Willow Haywood is no different. Her only desire is to love Landen Chambers and redeem the lost souls of Esterious, but the path to that desire is long, dark and dangerous…
Before Willow’s life had a chance to balance the sudden revelations and grief she had to endure to get to Chara a disturbing discovery is made. A photo, one that shows Willow blissfully embracing the flawless image of Drake Blakeshire; giving her not only proof that she had lived before, but that she had loved him.
Running away from the memory of Drake’s hypnotizing touch, and the prophecy set before her seemed like the logical thing to do. That is, until a dark dream reignites her passion to save the hopeless dimension of Esterious. Willow struggles to find patience – to learn everything she needs to know before she faces Drake again, but her eagerness is dangerous and one step in the wrong direction takes everything and everyone away from her – the only way to survive this trial is for Willow to remember who she is and what she really wants out of this life.

Image

There is an ominous darkness; one that is so dense and mind-numbing that you can feel the chills race across your skin as the energy of its hatred hovers near you. They thought that it was over… that he was dead… they never imagined that he was more powerful dead than he ever was alive.

The dark dimension Esterious is on the brink of war, the victory Willow had a few days ago is nothing more than a vague memory. With each thought she has, she fights the images of Drake’s dark eyes and his words… his promises. Doubt seeps into her soul as she faces what could be the hardest battle she has faced so far.

Every prediction and theory is about to be proven wrong… and the choice before Willow’s heart holds the lives of millions at stake. The question is: will she be able to see through the illusions before her and make a choice… she can live with?

In addition to this, she also finds out that she’s more connected to this case than she ever thinks she would be, and because of this, she fears that she’ll be the killer’s next victim.

DESCRIPTION:

“My Journey Through War and Peace: Explorations of a Young Filmmaker, Feminist and Spiritual Seeker” is based on Melissa Burch’s experiences as a war journalist for BBC, CBS, and other networks. Her team was one of the first documentary crews allowed in the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War, and she was featured in a New York Times story about her time in Afghanistan. She was just in her twenties when she traveled with the mujahideen, filmed an attack on a Soviet convoy, slept with an Afghan commander, and climbed 14,000-foot mountains in the Hindu Kush. “My Journey Through War and Peace” examines how, through outward action and inward exploration, life can unfold in mysterious ways, far beyond cultural and family expectations. In looking back at this momentous decade, Burch shares why she pursued such dangerous and difficult circumstances at such a young age and continued to live on the edge. She now understands that she was seeking self-discovery, a connection to something greater, and ultimately inner peace. This exciting memoir will resonate with fans of “Eat Pray Love,” “Wild,” and other popular memoirs that describe extraordinary inner and outer journeys.

DESCRIPTION:

“Move over Tim Ferriss, there’s a refreshed approach to unshackling yourself from the grueling busy-work of the grind.” – Matthew Hart – Author and CTO Arise Virtual Solutions

LEAVE THE GRIND BEHIND is for anyone who has built a good career, is probably comfortable, yet has an itch–a realization–that there is more to life.

This book is dedicated to all those ready to forge their own path, get more out of life, and burn their imprint on the world. You want more money, more freedom, and to build your own legacy. Perhaps you want to carve a future by leveraging your talents to freelance, consult, or become an entrepreneur.

LEAVE THE GRIND BEHIND is packed with actions, habits, and tools that will enable your success and explode your results. It will help you build the legacy you envisioned yourself leaving. You will develop a plan for leaving the grind behind, execute on that plan, and do so with minimal risk.

Time is your most valuable asset. Spending the majority of your waking time working for someone else’s dream won’t let you achieve the life you want. You’ll end up as just another cog in the daily grind, working for an upper-middle class salary with no real end in sight. Your own dreams are fading… but you’re not ready to go down without a fight.

If this sounds like you, you’re ready for more in life than just a job. You’re ready to venture into a realm that will be more rewarding, more exciting, and more personal. You’re ready for something that will make you a fortune.

LEAVE THE GRIND BEHIND is for you if you want to…

  • Quit your day job and follow your passions to become a consultant, a freelancer, or an entrepreneur.
  • Be a rock star at the job you already have, opening your career wide.
  • Identify your personal and professional goals, then design your life around them.
  • Reduce the risk of doing something big.
  • Create new revenue streams while working your current job… or not.
  • Purchase investment properties.
  • Complete that passion project on the side.
  • Write a book.
  • Provide for yourself and your family without compromise.
  • Live a superior life directed by you rather than someone else.
  • Enjoy freedom and the best things life has to offer.
  • Leave a legacy.

    LEAVE THE GRIND BEHIND will inspire you to leave the daily grind and start a life in which you drive the results. A life in which you:

  • Earn money via multiple channels.
  • Are in control of your time.
  • Do things you enjoy.
  • Leave a legacy that makes you proud.

    It can be a daunting proposition to completely kick your job and spend as much time as you want on projects that excite you. If you’re not quite ready to go all in, this book will give you plenty of guidance and inspiration to get you started.

    To start an excellent, scalable business, you’re probably looking at a couple of years of tremendously hard work with little return and no guarantee. If you already have a solid job, a mortgage, and a family to support, you know that immediately jumping into the deep end is just too risky. But, that doesn’t need to stop you.

    There is no shortage of self-help, personal development, and get-rich books on the market. And that’s great. Life is a journey, and we all need fresh sources of inspiration and ideas to keep ourselves motivated and challenged. This book provides that for you. But it can do something more.

    Many books come from authors who’ve had one particularly large success. Leave the Grind Behind provides a more generally accessible path. You won’t necessarily learn how to be a one time success, but rather to consistently find one success after the next. You’ll get the tools to achieve repeated excellence.

    DESCRIPTION:

    As the lone female in a houseful of men, Merrill Krause dedicates her life to caring for her family and their business, as her dying mother asked. Besides, it suits her; she’s never felt like she fits what most people expect in a girl–she’d rather work with her father’s horses and assist with the ice harvest. And though she’s been mostly content up to this point, a part of her wonders if there will ever be anyone who will notice her amid the bevy of brothers determined to protect her from any possible suitors.

    When Rurik Jorgenson arrives in their small Minnesota town to join his uncle’s carpentry business, he soon crosses paths with Merrill. But unlike other men, who are often frightened away by her older brothers, Rurik isn’t intimidated by them or by Merrill’s strength and lack of femininity. The attraction between them begins to build…until Rurik’s former fiance shows up with wild claims that bring serious consequences to Rurik.

    Can Rurik and Merrill learn to trust God–and each other–when scandal threatens their newfound love?


    Tracie Peterson’s love for history and research fuel the bestselling stories she writes. She is the author of more than ninety novels and the recipient of the 2011 ACFW Lifetime Achievement Award. Tracie and her family live in Montana.

    DESCRIPTION:

    Where food meets culture and tradition, the result is saporitissimo!

    The most delicious cuisine in the world is also the best for you

    Ah, the food of Italy! From the countless variations of pasta, to the abundance of artisanal meats and cheeses, to the mouth-watering desserts. Ever wonder how the Italians eat so well yet stay so healthy? The flavor appeal of Italian cuisine is well known, but did you also know that Italians are among the healthiest people in the world? Their life expectancy is the 5th highest globally according to the United Nations and the World Health Organization.

    Eat delicious food, live longer…sounds pretty good, right?

    So what’s the catch? What’s the secret to their “recipe?” Attempts to explain this phenomenon have generated plenty of reasonable theories not to mention dozens of scientific studies. But who really wants to plow through all of that bland, unsavory data? In any case, the real key has more to do with philosophy than physiology. Let’s just have a taste and decide for ourselves…

    In this book, our goal will be to rediscover the joy of food from the beginning of a meal to the end–from selecting the freshest ingredients to the after dinner conversation, and everything in between. We will explore food traditions and their role in Italian culture. We will eat well and the health benefits will come as a consequence and not as a result of our obsessive efforts to that end. Sure, we’ll try to figure out “why,” but we won’t put too much effort in that direction. To do so would only spoil the poetry. Rather, we will focus on the ways to maximize the pleasure and minimize the guilt. After all, worry and guilt are far worse for your health than all the salt and cholesterol in a fast food “happy” meal.

    More specifically, we will:

    • Discover some of the best regional cuisines in Italy.
    • Learn a few simple techniques for cooking delicious dishes.
    • Survey the history of some Italian food traditions.
    • Debunk the pseudo-science behind the latest fad diets.
    • Celebrate the subtle pleasure of sitting down to a slow meal with friends and family.

    Finally, in the last chapter, we’ll chop it all down into bite size pieces for easy digestion. These “Italian Food Rules” that I’ve come up with are my semi-serious attempt to decode Italian food culture for the English speaking world.
    Sound appetizing? Well then let’s journey together to that Bel Paese where life is sweet and the joy of everyday food is nothing short of miraculous.

    Buon appetito!

    In 1906, I was barely over fourteen years old, and it was my wedding day. My older sister, Helen, came to my room, took me by the hand, and sat me down on the bed. She opened her mouth to say something, but then her face flushed, and she turned her head to look out the window. After a second, she squeezed my hand and looked back in my eyes. She said, “You’ve always been a good girl, Maude, and done what I told you. Now, you’re going to be a married woman, and he will be the head of the house. When you go home tonight after your party, no matter what he wants to do to you, you have to let him do it. Do you understand?”
    I didn’t understand, but I nodded my head anyway. It sounded strange to me, the way so many things did. I would do what she told me. I didn’t have a choice, any more than I had a choice in being born.

    Confused and humiliated, Katie accepts Bill’s declaration that no decent man will have her, now, and his proposal − a loveless marriage of convenience to a man she despises − seems to be her only option. People in her rural hometown expect them to marry, but Katie begins to consider how much she might risk to wed the man she truly loves.

    Learn How to Get in Shape With a Powerful Daily Workout Routine

    You know you need to exercise, but most workout programs take too much time, seem too extreme (P90X, Insanity, etc.), or they put you in the middle of the “meat market” scene at most gyms. There has to be an easier way.

    To experience the health benefits exercise has to offer, all you need to do is set a simple goal to “Exercise Every Day” in a way that fits your already busy schedule.

    The Real Struggle is Specific Workout Obstacles

    Most people have the desire and capacity to exercise, but they let obstacles stop them from ever getting started. Sleepiness keeps you from getting to early morning “boot camp” classes or a small apartment keeps you from making room for weights and equipment. Real-life obstacles like these can prevent you from exercising at home or the gym.

    S.J. Scott’s new book Exercise Every Day helps you identify the obstacles that continually get in your way. By reviewing each obstacle and identifying specific solutions, this book will help you experience a personal breakthrough.

    Introducing: Exercise Every Day – 32 Tactics for Building the Exercise Habit

    This book includes sections on:

    • How to determine what workout routine is right for your life
    • Why micro-commitments keep you from ever missing another daily workout
    • How technology incentivizes you to track your daily exercise
    • A guide to finding the right gym or home workout routine
    • How to maximize your small pockets of time
    • What to do to make working out fun…even if you normally hate it
    • A step-by-step blueprint to identify and overcome workout obstacles
    • And much, much more!

    It’s time to stop overthinking your exercise routine. You can improve your health and build your fitness without sacrificing all your free time. Exercise Every Day is a simple common sense approach that’s easy-to-implement no matter what type of workout you choose.
