5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Motivator !, June 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The thrust of this book challenges you to do what you like doing and get paid for it.Each of us must discover where we excel and select a career based upon our strengths.Sam provides plenty of practical stories which enunciate this basic requirement to succeed at what we do best.

Many people can spend a lifetime doing things that they really don't like. The thing to do is to figure out your passion early in a career and pursue that activity right away. Naturally, there are obstacles to success; however, people usually find ways to overcome obstacles when they truly want to do so.

Sam's book is a great motivator for people who are stuck in an activity that doesn't pay or truly reflect their calling in life.The book does need some minor editing but this does not detract from my overall assessment.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great American West !, June 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This ebook documents important characters of the Real West from 1783 thru to the roaring twenties.For instance, Daniel Boone was a rugged frontiersman and Virginia state legislator known for his great Indian adventures.Davey Crockett was well respected by the Indians.He served in the Congress and died at the Alamo.

The legendary Kit Carson was a tough negotiator who worked with Native American Indians.Wild Bill Hickok was a talented gunfighter who mastered gun play in the Wild West.George Custer lead his men into a courageous battle against Chief Sitting Bull despite impossible odds.

Many of the figures in this book displayed more than a modicum of courage, self sacrifice and personal responsibility to become part of the story of the Great American West.The reviewer asked for and received a free copy for purposes of this review.

The Mind of the Living by J. Kaihua is an interesting book which explains that happiness is a journey. There are interesting still scenes of boats on water, roaming hills and individual portraits of villagers.

The book introduces a monk as a seeker of knowledge along with a book entitled "Eye of the Living". This volume is said to contain the secrets of the world and is not for sale at any price. A major theme of the book delineates how the acts of people strive toward happiness- a universalist concept for people who work at perfecting the attainment of happiness.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Success Of The Wright Brothers !, May 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Wright Brothers by David McCullough is a fascinating book about the obstacles faced by the Wright Brothers in bringing the airplane to market and realizing the commercial potential of flight.The brothers worked out of a bicycle shop in Dayton, Ohio to realize the first flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina in 1903.

The Wright Brothers studied birds in flight as many had done previously. People; such as, Leonardo da Vinci studied the mechanics of flight and even designed mechanical flying machines centuries before the Wright Brothers met with commercial success. Overall, this is a wonderful book on a popular milestone in American and Global History.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Disaster Handbook Gem !, May 28, 2015
This review is from: Disaster Handbook (Paperback)
The Disaster Handbook by Robert Brown Butler explains how to cope with a plethora of disaster scenarios like floods, ice storms, volcanic eruptions, avalanches, droughts or even a nuclear emergency. The author includes sections for the days before a disaster, just before, sudden events, disasters in the present and the aftermath.

There is a section covering the repair of buildings, grounds, interiors, furnishings and vehicles. The book has an addenda which explains how to survive a plane crash, train wreck, sinking ship and even personal assaults. For instance, the preferred seating in a train prior to a head-on collision is in a seat facing the rear. A head-on crash will pressure the body against the back of the seat instead of flying in a forward direction upon high speed impact. Also, lateral forces between the wheel of a train and the rail react in response to the centrifugal inertial loading to keep the train in place. When centrifugal inertial loading is too great, the train begins to tip. Herein is the anatomy of a train wreck when the train speed is excessive.

The author depicts the facia of a home along with key places to reinforce in anticipation of storm damage. For instance, pipes can be insulated adjacent to outer walls or storm spaces. Non-freeze spigots can be installed for cold weather. The roof can be strengthened to support heavy snow although heating elements/mats can be placed in strategic places to melt the snow.

The Disaster Handbook is an important edition to your library of self-help books. The book is well illustrated with ample diagrams which depict home repairs simply. There are areas where the author could add supplementary material. For instance families should have an ample supply of vitamins on hand during the winter season. Examples are vitamin ester C, quercitin, vitamin D3, acidophilus and others. In areas which aren't too accessible to a hospital emergency room, families may request that their health care providers prescribe antibiotics for emergency use. Otherwise, the Disaster Handbook is a fairly complete reference for use in emergencies of just about every kind. The reviewer asked for and received a sample copy for purposes of this review.
