Format: Paperback
Riding the Roller Coaster is an important book for all. It is full of practical advise on how to repel despair and replace it with pragmatic and ultimately satisfying outlook on life. Choosing Riding the Roller Coaster, however, was an easy choice, not only because its subject matter is relevent to our times, but also because the author deals with it very effectively. There are a surfeit of self help programs and self help books that try to deal with how to overcome adversity or how to cope with problems or calamity-or even how to achieve happiness. Those books and programs, however, are, for the most part, feeble attempts at dealing with these problems, because they don't get to the heart of the matter: faith in god. The idea found in this book proceed from the premise that faith in god is necessary to solving any problem. I highly recommend this book to any reader who is searching deeply on some of the vexing issue that one confronts in life.

If you're looking for practical advice and heart warming stories that will help you get through challenges of life, this book is for you. Javed Mohammed has done an excellent job putting together stories and poems filled with humor, wisdom and practical advice in a very readable way. I have to warn you though, once you pick up this book, you will have a hard time putting it down.

By Rebecca Brown on May 10, 2006
Format: Paperback
Rebeccasreads recommends RIDING THE ROLLER COASTER as a ticket to read about this gentle Muslim soul who lives & works in Silicon Valley whose life, after 9/11, spun out of control.

RIDING THE ROLLER COASTER will show you what inspires this author, as well as taking the wisdom he offers back into our own rocky roads. Along the way you will encounter the poems of Muslim women such as Aaminah Hernandez, Veiled Warrior, Renee Warner, Amatullah Al-Marwani, Heather K. Browne, Rym Aoudia, Eloquence An-Nur, & Javed Mohammed himself.

& as you read, discover the benefit of a life of practicing the virtues of Patience, Prayer, Purpose, Proactive Planning & Passionate Persistence.

As with all Javed Mohammed's books, there are no pictures, all is presented in a plain & simple format, thereby enhancing the jewels within the covers.
