For the millions of atheists and agnostics, the spiritual but not religious and those questioning their faith, A Better Ten Commandments filters through the chaos and confusion of everyday life and provides a foundational framework for finding fulfillment without taking anything on faith. A Better Ten Commandments combines the best of history, religion, philosophy and science in a simple yet powerful framework that you can incorporate into your life. It is a story of forgiving our faults, a story of hope for humanity, and ultimately, if we do what is necessary, a story of our own redemption. A Better Ten Commandments is about who we are, what we want, and what truly matters in life. The only life that you can count on.

Self-Help/Finance – 100 Vacation Days a Year: Your Way Out of Modern Slavery

100 Vacation Days a Year100 Vacation Days a Year: Your Way Out of Modern Slavery
By Barak Paztal
Published: October 2017
ISBN: 978-8895387109
ASIN: B0765V91FY
Genre: Self-Help, Finance, Non-Fiction
Formats Available For Review:      pdf, mobi

In February 2004, Barak Paz-Tal, a Customer Marketing Manager at ‘Partner Communications’, was working round the clock, getting frustrated and feeling he was going nowhere.

He did not see himself fulfilling his dreams and enjoying more vacation time.

Following a workshop in Jerusalem, he began a process of deep inner change. He quit his job, became self-employed, relocated to China and built two multimillion-user Internet businesses. When he returned to Israel he established an Internet marketing business as well as a real estate investment company.

Today, Barak travels, surfs, and enjoys free time which enables him to increase his social awareness. Together with his mentor and bestselling author Robert Shemin, who lectured together with Tony Robbins, Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki and whose books have sold millions, he created this book and a video course with the same title.

They offer an original path out of the shackles of modern-day slavery and claim that they can help anyone in any situation reinvent themselves and have all their dreams fulfilled.

They promise a lifestyle with one hundred days vacation a year.

The modern working world is undergoing significant changes. Today there is a great deal of unemployment in many European countries. Many people aged forty and older particularly suffer from an unemployment crisis, which leads them to have self-esteem problems.

This book offers solutions to all those suffering from such problems, and to help create new energy and open a second chapter in their lives. For the younger generation, they offer solutions of how to build a smarter and more efficient lifestyle.

When Katrina Shawver met the eighty-five-year-old Henry Zguda, he possessed an exceptional memory, a surprising cache of original documents and photos, and a knack for meeting the right people at the right time. In the interview style of Tuesdays with Morrie, Henry relates in his own voice a life as a champion swimmer and swimming coach, interrupted by three years imprisoned in Auschwitz and Buchenwald as a Polish (Catholic) political prisoner. Told with a pragmatic gallows humor, and sense of hope, this bridge to history is supported by extensive research, original documents, and rare photos. Ultimately, HENRY is the story a resilient young man who survives by his wits, humor, friends, and a healthy dose of luck.

Personal Transformation – Understanding the Patterns of Your Life: Take Charge of Your Destiny

Understanding the Patterns of Your LifeUnderstanding the Patterns of Your Life: Take Charge of Your Destiny
By George Pan Kouloukis
Publisher: Red Feather
Published: July 2017
ISBN: 978-0764353208
Genre: Non-Fiction,  Personal Transformation, Self-Help
Formats Available for Review: PDF, NetGalley

The book is an astonishing discovery! The moment you’ve finished reading it, you’ll be able to learn whether the years just ahead are good or bad for you – and how long this season will last! You can act so accordingly. If you find that a storm is on the horizon, you’ll take shelter in time; if you find that sunny days loom ahead, you’ll take advantage of it before the opportunity passes. In short, you’ll be able to take crucial decisions regarding your career, marriage, family, relationships, and all other life’s issues.

So, the book radically transforms the way we all live today. You will see among other things, why you mustn’t be seized by despair and pessimism when you find you are in a bad season of your life –fearing that this season will never end. Or, why you can dare when you find you are in a good season – fate is with you. Also, you’ll see that when you find you are in a good season of your life, you mustn’t behave as if you assume that this season will never end. On the contrary, you have to take in time the necessary measures to face successfully the problems that may occur in the bad season that will follow.

Also, you’ll learn from this book that you must not blame yourself –and have not any remorse– for the fact that a bad season came in your life. You’ll realize that you haven’t made any mistake to cause the arrival of this season, and you couldn’t have done anything for avoiding this; the bad season would have inevitably arrived in any case. And yes: you’ll see, among the lots of advantages this book offers, that you can entrust an employee or colleague with the solution of a difficult problem –or a politician to govern your country, or even a coach of a basketball team– only if you know they are in a good season of their life, operating so from a position of strength.

You’ll also see that the biographies of 22 famous people cited in the book (from Beethoven and Napoleon to Picasso and Jackie Kennedy) are really super-interesting. You’ll be amazed to learn, for example, why Napoleon the Great wouldn’t have attacked in 1815 the English and Germans in Waterloo – where he suffered total destruction that lead him to death – if he knew the theory of this book. Things may have so taken another course for him, and a new good season, a glorious one again, may have later started for Napoleon.

Also, you’ll see that the discovery cited in this book can also help you to foresee the life evolution of the other people – of your friends and relatives, of famous people (artists, singers, actors, and the likes), or even of the politicians that govern you. You can predict, for example, how long the leader of your country will stay in power after his election, or for how long a famous singer will continue his successful career. All depends on the season – good or bad – these persons are at a given moment, as explained in detail in the book.

Finally, the discovery revealed in the book will radically change in the future the mentality and character of all people. People will become more philosophized, realists, and peaceful –they will know that a good season doesn’t last forever, on the contrary a bad season awaits; it hasn’t any meaning, therefore, being quarrelsome and aggressive. On the contrary, the Man will become tolerant and merciful, and have more understanding towards the others. Superficiality and imprudence, even if they don’t disappear completely, will drastically be reduced.

The author George Pan Kouloukis is an attorney-at-law, a lawyer barrister. He is a Greek citizen, born and brought up in Greece, and he is living in Greece. His mother tongue is also Greek; English is his second language. Now retired, he was a member of the Athens Bar Association of Greece and he had provided legal services to the Ionian Bank of Greece, the Greek Electric Railways Company, and other corporations. He is married with two daughters and three grandchildren.

Genealogy – The Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy. 4th Edition

The Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy. 4th EditionThe Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy. 4th Edition
By Val D. Greenwood
Publisher: Genealogical Publishing Company
Published: October 2017
ISBN: 978-0806320663
Genre: Genealogy
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.)

When it was originally published in 1973, The Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy, by Val Greenwood, revolutionized its field. It was the first true textbook ever published about American genealogy. Combining how-to guidance, case study examples, and an extremely detailed discussion of genealogical records, The Researcher’s Guide was both an instant success and the go-to source for its users during each stage of their research. Following the publication of Alex Haley’s Roots and the TV miniseries that book spawned, sales of Mr. Greenwood’s book soared, assuring its reputation as the best book in American genealogy ever published.

Between 1973 and 2000, two additional editions of The Researcher’s Guide were released, primarily in response to the use of the personal computer for compiling, organizing, and publishing genealogical information. By 2000, the early stages of digitizing genealogy data, mostly on CD-ROM , were also in evidence.

Since the publication of the 3rd Edition of The Researcher’s Guide in 2000, the genealogy landscape has changed dramatically. Almost everyone now uses a computer for research. Thanks to the Internet, with a click of the mouse, genealogists have access to more data they could ever dream of studying; data they would have had to travel far and wide to come by in the past. Much of this information is free, or moderately priced through commercial subion services. To cite one crucial example, the entire U.S. federal census, from 1790 through 1940, is available online and completely indexed, from several providers. DNA has also become an important tool in genealogy in recent years. Whether or not they know where their immigrant ancestors came from, with a mere sputum sample, Americans can discover their ethnic origins in just a matter of weeks. This technology can help fill gaps in the family tree by, among other things, putting one in touch with others possessing a similar genetic make-up.

The 4th Edition of The Researcher’s Guide to American Genealogy both embraces the changes of the last seventeen years and yet transcends them. Mr. Greenwood has re-written every chapter and added two chapters about technology as it relates to family history research–one dealing with significant concepts and definitions and the other with specific resources and applications, including major family history websites and Internet resources. In addition, virtually every chapter provides information on Internet websites pertinent to the subject discussed in that chapter. Greenwood covers all the major changes in the field, including DNA research. The final result is a 4th Edition that is 25% longer than its predecessor. Given the unprecedented amount of information on the Internet, today’s researcher is able to reach beyond the vital statistics to a new world of understanding, both of his ancestors and of himself. Accordingly the author shows the reader how to build a family history about actual people, not just names and dates, from the myriad available sources. Mr. Greenwood also recognizes that not all sources researchers are seeking can be found online today—some never will be—that much information on the web is faulty or unsourced, and that researchers invariably enter dead ends or hit brick walls. Good instructional guidance, consequently, is critical to the success of family history research, and this is where The Researcher’s Guide is unsurpassed. It is both a textbook and an all-purpose reference book, designed to help the present generation of family history researchers better understand the methods and principles of family history research, and learn how to utilize all available resources. In short, this new 4th edition provides a clear, comprehensive, and up-to-date account of American genealogy—no sound genealogical project is complete without it.

“Recommended as the most comprehensive how-to book on American genealogical and local history research.”—Library Journal
