BRITAIN AT WAR 1939 to 1945 what was life like during the war? by James Lingard (Authorhouse) has recently been re-launched in view of excellent reviews. I would value the opinions of the reading public as well as established historians. It is offered for review as an eBook, not a physical book.
The book is a short 33,000 word insight into the horrors of the Home Front with an overview of the major campaigns in World War 2, enlivened by personal experiences and quotations from Churchill. It provides a fascinating look at the harsh realities of life in Britain – life full of drama and the danger of impending death. How did a family with a small child caught up in such a war survive?
In a recent 5star review, Bev Walkling writes:
‘I confess that I am fascinated by the Second World War, in part because my father and various uncles served as members of the Canadian forces and their experiences impacted me as I was growing up. As such, this book was of great fascination to me.
This book was a relatively quick read that would be of interest to those who might not have much background in the events of the war or those who know the broad details but want the day to day understanding of how lives were affected by things like bombing raids. James Lingard has meticulously researched and presented the timeline of events for the war, but where this book really shines as far as I am concerned is in the sharing of his own family’s experiences as they were personally impacted. Though only a young boy when the war began, his life was affected in multiple ways and his family was at one point thought killed as their air raid shelter was destroyed. In actual fact they had gone out to the woods for an outing, which ultimately saved their lives!
Another enjoyable part of the book was the quotes Lingard used at the beginning of each chapter. Many of these quotes were taken from speeches by Churchill or other prominent men of the time and they add to the general picture and emotions of the period.
I would recommend this book to individuals ranging from young adults through to seniors.

Hello.

I am author of "Quanto-Geometry: Overture of Cosmic Consciousness or Universal Knowledge for All". Recently published and available at Smashwords and Amazon.

This book addresses engineers, researchers, mathematicians, physicists and all science amateurs seeking satisfactory answers to long-time elusive problems in modern physics and cosmology. This is not your typical speculative book about these issues which commonly just adds more confusion and controversy to these matters.

Quanto-Geometric Theory stunningly derives the fundamental Quantum parameters and gravity from one single mathematical formalism, it is the first Theory ever to compute from first principles the host of known fundamental physical constants, both dimension-less and dimensional.

It is a read that will not disappoint anyone because the answers are there, clear, simple and falsifiable, in the tradition of good physics! A promise of enjoyment and enlightenment!

I am looking for reviewers among the audience of interest for review of this work in exchange for free copies. Drop me a line if you feel like exchanging some thoughts or reviewing.

Thank you.

Read on to find out more about the preparation, the itinerary, the route, the food, the terrain, the people, the risks and finally to understand how a 16 day trip was reduced to a 5 day trip for the author.

Hello,

My wife, Embrolic Selby, has written a new fitness book, Fitness With Personality: Use Your Color Type to Get Fit For Life, available on Amazon.com.

The ebook is FREE to lend for kindle unlimited and Amazon prime users.

If you struggle with staying fit, visit http://www.fitnesswithpersonality.com to watch a video from the author and find out how this book can help.

Here is the book description:

Finally, the principles of personality typing and fitness programming are brought together in one book!

When your best friend thrives on a new fitness program and you don’t, you may feel you’re just bad at it.

When your workout partner absolutely loves strength training and you don’t, you may feel you’re doing it wrong.

You’re not bad at it, and you’re not doing it wrong.

Personality type is often ignored when it comes to fitness programs…until now. We created the Wellness With Personality Color Type system to help you match your personality style with your approach to wellness. In this book, we apply the Color Type system to Fitness With Personality so that you can easily find the right programs for you.

The Color Types are Yellow, Red, Blue and Gray. They are based upon the personality style and energy that one brings to the world. Each type should approach fitness differently instead of trying to fit themselves into programs made for someone else. Once you know your Color Type, you’ll know which fitness programs are worth your precious time and effort. You will finally be able to get fit and stay that way—for life!

I'm looking for reviewers for my new non-fiction book, Planning a Novel, Script or Memoir.

Here is the book blurb:

Creating a long story such as a novel requires a great deal of effort and creativity. It is easy to get lost in details and to lose focus on the main issues. This book describes a process to plan the work prior to writing the first draft. The purpose of the plan is to allow the author to concentrate on the important elements of the story. A major portion of the book describes a method of developing a roadmap to keep the writer on target.
The plan can be used to develop any long story. Besides a novel, this also includes scripts, memoirs and plays.

The book just received a 5-star review from an LT member, but I'm interested in getting more.

Just out and seeking reviews: To Touch and Be Touched is a memoir (about 38k words) in e-Book format but also will be published in paperback. It is an ordinary man’s search for what makes life worthwhile, published by Denro Classics. It will appeal to many adult readers.

Here is the back cover blurb:

In less than seven seconds, Bob Brown’s life was shattered. It wasn’t an accident. It wasn’t illness. It was a documentary film, and it took him forty years to recover.

In this memoir of seeking the reason to get out of a warm, comfortable bed in the morning, Brown tells the story of what made sense to him, and it may be right for you too.

He thanks his parents for making it all possible.

In page after page, hidden under unassuming titles, he assembles crisp bits of wisdom.
James Minard

I could relate to much of what he said…it continually got me thinking. In reading this book, I felt like Brown was speaking to me personally. I now want to read some of his 10 other books. Blaine Greenfield

Bob has a great way to take the common experiences that we all share and milk uncommon insights and understanding from them. Lessons abound for all of us. Jim Corbett


The theme is how a man of modest talents learned how to live an extraordinary life.

God
Existence Precedes Essence

Afternoon folks,

Hope everyone is fine and well.
I had been toying around with the idea of publishing a political work for several years until finally taking the plunge this month when I uploaded the Manifesto of the Edification Party.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01KANN0EE

If I may give you the opening block so as to wet your appetite.

What is needed is the creation of a democratically elected, representative, fully accountable and transparent planetary government which has the lawful ability to address global problems and issues.
This democratic world government should not exist to serve the narrow interests of national governments and multi-national corporations. It should exist and function to serve the best interests of humanity.
The political union of humanity is both possible and desirable. In a divided world we cannot hope to address such problems as climate change, war, poverty or terrorism. Only united can we hope to build a prosperous future for generations to come.

I genuinely would like some feedback in the form of a review or two ladies and gents. Please feel free to let me know what you think.
The work is free if you have kindle unlimited :)

Have a great day friends.

Hello, everyone. I'm a psychotherapist, writer, and photographer living and working near Boston, MA. I've recently come out with two books:

In my book Paths to Wholeness: Fifty-Two Flower Mandalas, I distilled the best of what I’ve learned as an artist, writer, and psychotherapist into a unique blend of Flower Mandala images and related essays on 52 fundamental aspects of human experience. Here are links to the print and eBook editions:
Book page: http://transformationspress.org/paths-wholeness

Kindle eBook: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NAAFU3S
iBooks eBook: http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/id1182759820

I also created a free, shortened eBook version that includes, among eight others, a chapter on the near-death experience that led me to becoming a psychotherapist:
Kindle eBook: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N1NV2MA
iBooks eBook: http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/paths-to-wholeness-selections/id1182821801

I've also published a new coloring book based on the Flower Mandalas. In my therapy practice, I've come to see that coloring is more than a fad or a diversion. It can also be a mindful activity for many people who might be unwilling to try meditation. I collaborated with artist Mary O'Malley (http://maryomalleyart.com) to create 52 (more) Flower Mandalas: An Adult Coloring Book. That's available here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0984699422

Hello,

My second book is recently published. The "Soul of Africa" is a story of racial discrimination in the UK following my unique encounter with God.

You can request a free review copy through Net Galley - https://s2.netgalley.com

or

Read a sample chapter on iAuthor https://www.iauthor.uk.com/soul-of-africa:24302

Soul of Africa is available on the following platforms:

Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Soul-Africa-Discrimination-Following-Encounter-ebook/dp/B06XZ6YGN1/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1495623640&sr=8-2&keywords=jumoke+akinniranye

Smashword: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/721077
Kobo: https://www.kobo.com/gb/en/ebook/soul-of-africa

Here is the book blurb:

In Soul of Africa Jumoke Akinniranye shares her personal journey through a period of extreme discrimination, atrocity and hatred in the UK, amongst a community she had lived, worked and fellowshipped with for decades – borne out of her encounter with the Lord, which resulted in the grace of God’s presence resting upon her life in an unprecedented way. It is an insightful journal of her journey through the Church, the State and the Community, detailing the lessons learnt through the process. She realised that a heavenly invasion that should have brought life to the community and the nation at large, had become a vehicle which her NHS colleagues, neighbourhood and local church community used for the outpouring of division, discrimination and hatred.

This book also give you an overview of her encounter with the Lord, as she shares the unique work the Lord did in her mind, body and spirit during these encounters, including opening the door of her mind, thereby allowing all to hear every thought or dreams that passes through her mind. She also tells of her numerous visits to heaven, and dreams from the Lord spanning many years with promises of the outpouring of His Spirit on earth like never before.

Thanks

Hello, reviewers! I have a lot of print copies of Seven Sisters: Spiritual Messages from Aboriginal Australia to send out for reviews.

For readers of The Secret, The Things You Can See Only When You Slow Down by Haemin Sunim, Eckhart Tolle, Louise Hay, and Paul Coelho.

According to Australia's ancient cultures, all creatures and things emerged from the Dreamtime. The Dreaming is not just a collection of lore or a long-ago time; it is a living energy that flows constantly through the universe. It is then and now, divine and human, spirit and law. Because the energy is as vibrant today as ever, these ancient stories show us how to survive in a harsh world and how to thrive in our souls.

Each Aboriginal story in this collection is enhanced with an essay from award-winning author Laine Cunningham. Our modern perspectives on love and friendship, illness and joy, life and the afterlife can be enriched with this ancient knowledge. Open this book and take your own journey through the eternal Dreamtime. Along the way, you will discover that the ancient connection to god/goddess/the divine still resonates in your soul. You will discover your own truth.

To grab a copy, email me directly at tlcnine@gmail.com. I am the author, Laine Cunningham. If you would like an ebook version, that can be provided instead. Review requests from outside the US will always receive an ebook instead of a print copy.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Hello!

My nontraditional caregiving essay collection, "The Reluctant Caregiver," was self-published in digital format in Sept. 2017. Paperback version coming soon.

Amazon
Other major digital bookstores

Free ebook copies are available for those interested in providing an honest review. Reach me here at LT or email: joyjohnston.writer@gmail.com.

Book description is below.

Not everyone is born a natural caregiver.

One moment, digital journalist Joy Johnston is a cynical workaholic with an underwater mortgage. The next moment, she faces the responsibility of caring for her eccentric mother who's battling colon cancer, just six months after her father's death from Alzheimer's. As an only child, she has no choice but to slap on the latex gloves, and get to know more about her mother — and herself — than she ever imagined possible.

The road from reluctance to resilience is bumpy and splattered with bodily fluids, but it also offers unforgettable lessons. Who knew you could learn how to change a colostomy bag on YouTube, or that hospice nurses like telling dirty jokes? Peppered with snarky humor, vivid observations, and poignant honesty, this essay collection will resonate with anyone drafted into a family health crisis.

Seeking Reviewers for a Genealogy Research Guide - The Researcher's Guide to American Genealogy. 4th Edition
http://amzn.to/2zY67PF

The 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

Hi Everyone!

I've just published my 6th Book, "Positive Aging: A SMART Living 365 Guide to Thriving and Wellbeing At Any Age" and would love some honest reviews.

Link on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076N7FY2R/ref=rdr_kindle_ext_tmb

Description: Do you have a positive view of getting older? It matters. Like many baby boomers her age, Kathy Gottberg started wondering if it was all downhill after turning 60. Instead, she gladly discovered that how each of us views the aging process strongly influences our health and happiness in the years to come. Now rather than seeing her advancing years from the perspective of decline and disease, Kathy is happy to share in the pages of this book how the vast majority of people can and do remain reasonably healthy, active and thriving for the remainder of their lives.

How did we get it wrong? Until recently, most studies of people as they aged came from insurance companies, drug companies or doctors who specialized in geriatric care. Like the psychology field, research in the past often focused on pathologies, what didn’t work, or what went wrong. Fortunately, that is changing. Now many groups, organizations, and scientists are looking into what makes for a long and healthy future no matter what the age. Instead of only seeking ways to make our final years merely comfortable, the attention is now being put on what helps us to continue to grow and thrive. When we choose to see aging from this new positive perspective, each of us is granted the opportunity to celebrate the many benefits of what is now being called “the third age” of life.

Who will benefit from reading this book? Certainly, those at age 50 and beyond will find inspiration. But those just hitting midlife should also find encouragement. After all, the more we tell those younger than us that aging can be wonderful, fulfilling, and liberating, the better. Then instead of worrying about what is coming as we age, holding a positive perspective is sure to keep our minds and options open to the possible. And as the saying goes, like fine wine, we will just get better with age.

Positive Aging—A SMART Living Guide 365 to Thriving & Wellbeing At Any Age is a collection of blog posts written by Kathy Gottberg on her blog SMART Living 365.com during the last five years. These articles address some of her best ideas about the topic and tie into how each of us can fearlessly embrace our age and look forward to the days to come.

Free Kindle Copies available.

Thank you so much for your consideration! ~Kathy

Understanding 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

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.

Seeking Reviews for New Self-Help/Medical Book - The Joint Kitchen
http://amzn.to/2ndcLMB

Available on NetGalley at http://netgal.ly/RUDBcw

The Joint Kitchen: A Handbook for Orthopaedic Inventors and Fraidy Cats Facing a Knee or Hip Replacement
By Michael David Ries, MD
Publisher: Koehler Books
Published: November 2017
ISBN: 978-1633935327 (pb)
ISBN: 978-1633935341 (hc)
ISBN: 978-1633935334 (ebook)
ASIN: B0773Y39K8
Pages: 106
Genre: Self-Help, Medical

Imagine a doctor doing ordinary activities in his kitchen, stopping to draw some of the everyday objects around him, like an orange and a corkscrew. Then watch him turn those drawings into advanced patents for hip and knee replacements. Dr. Michael Ries holds 45 patents, and many of his ideas came to him in the kitchen. The remarkable efficiency of the human hip and knee are described here through simple illustrations, explaining why hip and knee replacements will never be quite as perfect as the joints we were born with. Health care professionals, patients considering joint replacement, students, and inventors will find The Joint Kitchen informative, entertaining, and thought-provoking. Dr. Ries shows that a state of tranquility allows the creative and problem-solving parts of the brain to connect and form new ideas that can transform and improve lives.

About the Author:
Dr. Michael Ries is a world renowned orthopaedic surgeon. He has presented over 600 invited lectures at regional, national, and international orthopaedic educational conferences, and published over 200 peer reviewed journal articles and 50 book chapters on topics related to total hip and knee replacement. Dr. Ries is also an inventor on 45 US patents for hip and knee replacement devices.

I'm always looking for reviews for my book The Civil War and the Subversion of American Indian Sovereignty.

Description:

The U.S. government’s Indian Policy evolved during the 19th century, culminating in the expulsion of the American Indians from their ancestral homelands. Much has been written about Andrew Jackson and the removal of the Five Nations from the American Southeast to present-day Oklahoma. Yet little attention has been paid to the policies of the Lincoln administration and their consequences.
The Civil War was catastrophic for the natives of the Indian Territory. More battles were waged in the Indian Territory than in any other theater of the war, and the Five Nations’ betrayal by the U.S. government ultimately lead to the destruction of their homes, their sovereignty and their identity.
