The author shares his personal techniques, insights and experiences regarding saving money and investing, drawn from his blog posts as well as a series of letters to his teenage daughter, both dealing with money management.
This book is unlike any other writing book you have read. Instead of talking about all the things you “should” do to write your novel, or “how-to” write your novel, Internal Journey of a Writer explores just that—the inner journey one must take if they want to find true wealth and success as an author. What does this look like? It’s a deeply spiritual journey that takes you within where you will discover the limitations you place on yourself—not only as a writer, but as a human-being—and how to break free from those limitations so that you can begin to see yourself as the author you want to be, RIGHT NOW. This book is a guide for those who have tried using tools and methods, no matter how great, to write their novel, only to find themselves spinning their wheels and never writing the book. Here, you will find no tools or checklists, but a clear understanding that everything you need to write your novel is within you already . . . and that’s exactly what this book will guide you in doing—writing your novel from the inside, out.
"Frugal Living: The Simple Path to Success" gives the reader the opportunity to learn about what it means to be frugal and how to make the transition to that lifestyle. It is written by an author who made the transition himself and has seen the total benefits of it. There are those who look at frugal persons as being mean. This however is far from the truth. A frugal individual is one who does not spend needlessly or waste unnecessarily. Anyone that is looking for a viable solution to get out of debt and get their home or office organized and free from clutter should read this book. It serves as a great starter guide.
Many people bring spiritual practices into every aspect of their lives--except the boardroom! But spiritual guidance can be used just as easily to help fill the bottom line as it does to fill our hearts and souls. In The Path to Wealth, entrepreneur May McCarthy will show you how to create a true financial partnership with the all-knowing power in the universe that she calls your Chief Spiritual Officer, or "CSO." This is not a dogmatic book; McCarthy encourages you to partner with a higher power of your own understanding, but she is insistent on one point: this power is within you and it knows what must happen for you to receive what you want. In this book you'll learn the job descriptions for both yourself and your CSO, and you'll have a daily road map to help you achieve your financial goals. As you practice these steps daily, you will experience seeming miracles that you never thought possible, all with less effort and more fun. Once you decide what you want, it's the CSO's job to create the path to get you the goods you've defined. Your job is to follow each step in this daily practice and watch as the benefits you want unfold.

W. E. B. Du Bois was a public intellectual, sociologist, and activist on behalf of the African American community. He profoundly shaped black political culture in the United States through his founding role in the NAACP, as well as internationally through the Pan-African movement. Du Bois's sociological and historical research on African-American communities and culture broke ground in many areas, including the history of the post-Civil War Reconstruction period. Du Bois was also a prolific author of novels, autobiographical accounts, innumerable editorials and journalistic pieces, and several works of history. One of the most neglected and obscure books by W. E. B. Du Bois, In Battle for Peace frankly documents Du Bois's experiences following his attempts to mobilize Americans against the emerging conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union. A victim of McCarthyism, Du Bois endured a humiliating trial-he was later acquitted-and faced political persecution for over a decade. Part autobiography and part political statement, In Battle for Peace remains today a powerful analysis of race in America. With a series introduction by editor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., and an introduction by Manning Marable, this edition is essential for anyone interested in African American history.
If you are looking for a book that will divulge the secret to making millions of dollars in a short amount of time without working hard at it, then you have the wrong book. If you do find a book providing that information, then put it down and walk away. If that book existed, wouldn't every reader be a millionaire?Wealth Virtues by James Ward simplifies the definition of wealth as "the ability to acquire more money than you spend, and to save more than you owe." This ability comes from understanding both your behavior, and the cyclic nature of money. By applying the practice of the Thirteen Virtues of Benjamin Franklin with the Cycle of Positive Wealth, anyone can be wealthy regardless of their current income. It is simply a matter of applying the things you already know into practice. Wealth Virtues reveals the simple path to get you there. James Ward is wealthy. Not "John D. Rockefeller wealthy," but rather has more money flowing in than flowing out. He is or has been a successful computer scientist, Coast Guardsman, Army Officer, analyst, musician, graphic designer, skier, manager for a defense contractor, business owner, and a writer. He is also a successful investor, but lives well within his means. As the owner of Poor Richard Web Press, he helps businesses, non-profits, and individuals succeed with their Internet marketing goals. He also helps other writers with free online marketing tools at BiblioScribe.com, and is a contributor to First Book, and organization that provides new books to children in need. Although his savings and investments continue to grow from the continual practice of Dr. Benjamin Franklin's Thirteen Virtues while following the Cycle of Positive Wealth, he realizes that his only true and most valuable treasure is his family.

If a stock market crash worries you, you must read this book. ***UPDATE*** Includes information on how the new tax reform bill signed into law as The Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 ("TCJA") Public Law 115-97 affects the investment strategy in this book.**********************************************************************************On one of his shows in the early eighties, right after his usual, "Welcome my friends, welcome to my world" intro, Bruce Williams, a popular talk show host of that era went right into the news of the day. I can remember as if it were yesterday, he said, "In today's financial news, you can now buy a non-callable 30 year T-bond (30 year treasury bond) with a guaranteed interest rate of 14.5%. Imagine my friends, if you invest your $50,000 today you will have $2.5 million in 30 years. You don't have to invest in anything else. You don't have to buy gold, real estate or do anything fancy." I did not follow the advice, not because I did not have the cash (in fact my wife and I had close to $100,000 in the bank by that time) but because, 1) 30 years is such a long time and at that age retirement was the furthest thing from my mind, 2) the advice simply sounded too good to be true. It sounded so incredible in its simplicity, it cannot possibly work, so I thought. There must be a catch somewhere. So I cast it off as satire or hyperbole from a talk show host always on the look-out for ratings. How wrong I was!!! Imagine my friends, had I followed this sound advice from a talk show host, with little risk, my $100,000 would have grown to $5 million in 30 years. I could have retired in my fifties, in pursuit of Marlin on my own 40-foot fishing boat off Cabo San Lucas. Instead, I squandered a big chunk of my money pursuing riskier, more exotic investments. Though 14.5% treasuries are just now relics of bygone days along with The Wonder Years, Growing Pains and Happy Days, you can still turn $50,000 into $3.3 million by following the simple investment strategy in this book. You will not make the same mistake I made.
A Jungian psychoanalyst “offers a Hindu spin on therapy, challenging readers to rethink childhood conflict and marital strife in terms of karma and dharma” (Publishers Weekly). Path to the Soul provides an important evolutionary leap in the rapidly evolving understanding of our psychological and spiritual essence. Drawing from Hindu and Christian spiritual wisdom, biological medicine, psychiatric technique, and over twenty-five years of clinical experience, Dr. Bedi has created a highly effective and integrated treatment approach to problems associated with both medical and psychiatric illness. He explains the Hindu concepts of maya, karma, and dharma, and builds a bridge between psychological disease and our intrinsic hunger for spiritual union. Each symptom is seen as a crucial whisper from our soul, and if we understand its message, it can lead us to psychological balance. Dr. Bedi guides us through the process of Kundalini diagnosis, showing how the use of life events, medical or psychiatric symptoms, relationship strengths and problems, and life goals and aspirations can help us determine our dominant and auxiliary chakras. Since our chakras are focal points where physical, emotional, developmental, and spiritual forces intersect, they provide a paradigm that usefully links physical, psychological, developmental, and spiritual dimensions. He explains how he has successfully helped many patients correct imbalances by learning to access and strengthen this energy. Throughout this book there are numerous examples of how Dr. Bedi’s patients have discovered what each individual eventually has to recognize; that our fulfillment, satisfaction, wholeness, and harmony can be reawakened when we touch the spark of divine light glowing within.
