Author: Philip Gibson

Genre: Non-Fiction
Kindle Unlimited: No

Regular Price: $6.99

Book Description:

On 25 May, 1961, President John F. Kennedy announced the hugely ambitious goal of sending a man to the Moon and returning him safely to Earth before the end of the decade.

The president’s announcement came at the height of the Cold War confrontation and it set off an intensely competitive race with the Soviet Union who desperately wanted to gain for themselves the huge propaganda victory of being the first nation to land a man on the Moon.

President Kennedy’s dramatic announcement galvanized the United States. There was just one problem: in May 1961, the United States’ manned space program remained far, far behind that of the Soviet Union.

In the months and years following the president’s announcement, NASA threw itself into an intensively accelerated program in which they would attempt to launch 26 increasingly complex manned missions into space in a massive and hugely expensive effort to beat the Soviet Union to the Moon.

This collection details all the NASA missions up to, and including, the first Moon landing, including moment-by-moment accounts of the particularly dramatic and historic Apollo 8 and Apollo 11 missions. These missions are retold in the form of today’s social media platforms, allowing us to witness the unfolding drama of the missions as if we were following them in real time and as if the participants and observers were sharing their thoughts and actions with us directly.

The narratives of these accounts are based on detailed recollections of the astronauts, NASA transcripts of the fascinating continual communications with Mission Control in Houston, broadcasts of the main TV networks covering the missions and the thoughts of many expert and laypeople observers of the time. There is an extensive list of major sources at the end of the book.

Regular Price: $2.99
Today’s Price: $0.99

Click Here to Buy!

Book Description:

The FIRST of two books featuring troubled, fearlessly funny Eleanor Rushing, each a cockeyed (yet charming) work of literary humor by Kindle bestselling author Patty Friedmann.

Surrounded by the splendor and excess of old money in New Orleans, Eleanor Rushing is a wry and witty young woman who first locks eyes with the love of her life at a City Council meeting. What starts as an innocuous infatuation with Dr. Maxim Walters, a Methodist minister who just so happens to be married, quickly turns into obsessive passion: she orchestrates an automobile accident outside his house, stuffs envelopes at his church, follows him on a business venture, sets up camp in the tools shed in his backyard…

Eleanor’s voice is both acutely perceptive and macabrely unhinged. She considers herself blessed with the ability to “remember everything,” except that her recollections and impressions seem to be at odds with everyone around her. By the time her “relationship” with Dr. Walters begins to spin frantically out of control, we’ve become her willing and faithful admirers. She’s so smart and funny—although a thoroughgoing fruitcake–that we can’t help but love her. Don’t we all have a friend like that?

Sometimes it takes a miracle to find forgiveness.

Divorced construction worker Derek has anger management issues. Acting rashly on the freeway, he causes an accident. His truck escapes unscathed, but he can’t say the same for his conscience. Visions of the wreck haunt his dreams, but they’re always followed by the sweet caresses and soothing words of a beautiful woman who calls to everything male in him.

Cami assumes she is dead. With no memory of her past, all she knows is endless fog and the occasional visit to a darkened bedroom where she comforts a man battling nightmares. When she wakes in a hospital bed and regains her memory, she assumes the ruggedly-handsome Derek was no more than a figment of her concussed mind.

As Cami recovers, she learns that Derek is not only real but also the driver charged with causing her accident. She should be furious with him, but their inexplicable nights together showed her a tender side beneath his rough exterior. Will she let one reckless mistake drive them apart, or will forgiveness have the right of way?

Unveiled Threat

Genre: Non-Fiction
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Kindle Unlimited: Yes

Regular Price: $2.99
Today’s Price: $0.99

Click Here to Buy!

Book Description:

THE CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS

In this part heart-rending memoir, part expose of fundamentalist Islamic terrorism, finance expert Janet Tavakoli bears witness to the incompatibility of Western values and fundamentalist Islam.

In 1978, Janet Tavakoli moved to Tehran with her Iranian husband and witnessed the overthrow of the progressive Shan and the birth of the fundamentalist Islamic Republic of Iran. After fleeing Iran, she followed the expansion of fundamentalist Islam and the spread of terrorism promoted by religious leaders at the highest echelons in the Middle East.

In 1993, she worked in the World Trade Center complex when terrorists detonated a bomb in the parking garage of the North Tower. On 9/11, she watched the news from London as terrorist plane hijackers destroyed the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers in New York on 9/11. She has followed multiple acts of terrorism by multiple fundamentalist Muslim terrorist organizations.

Sharia law, embraced by fundamentalists, allows forced “marriages” of female children, oppresses women, suppresses dissent, destroys freedom of speech, and promotes intolerance of other religions.

Tavakoli explains why the insistence of fundamentalist Muslims that sharia law is supreme over Western laws, including the United States Constitution, requires a response from those who believe in, and are willing to defend, the values of Western civilization.

THE ANNIHILATION OF FOREVERLAND
When kids awake on an island, they’re told there was an accident. Before they can go home, they will visit Foreverland, an alternate reality that will heal their minds.

Reed dreams of a girl that tells him to resist Foreverland. He doesn’t remember her name, but knows he once loved her. He’ll have to endure great suffering and trust his dream. And trust he’s not insane.

Danny Boy, the new arrival, meets Reed’s dream girl inside Foreverland. She’s stuck in the fantasy land that no kid can resist. Where every heart’s desire is satisfied. Why should anyone care how Foreverland works?

FOREVERLAND IS DEAD
Six teenage girls wake with no memories. One of them is in a brick mansion, her blonde hair as shiny as her shoes. The others are in a cabin, their names tagged to the inside of their pants. Their heads, shaved. Slashes mark the cabin wall like someone has been counting.

Hundreds of them.

There’s wilderness all around and one dead adult. The girls discover her body rotting somewhere in the trees. As the weeks pass, they band together to survive the cold, wondering where they are and how they got there. And why.

When an old man arrives with a teenage boy, the girls learn of a faraway island called Foreverland where dreams come true and anything is possible. But Foreverland is dead. In order to escape the wilderness, they’ll have to understand where they are.

More importantly, who they are.

ASHES OF FOREVERLAND
Tyler Ballard was in prison when his son created a dreamworld called Foreverland, a place so boundless and spellbinding that no one ever wanted to leave. Or did. Now his son is dead, his wife is comatose and Tyler is still imprisoned.

But he planned it that way.

The final piece of his vision falls into place when Alessandra Diosa investigates the crimes of Foreverland. Tyler will use her to create a new dimension of reality beyond anything his son ever imagined—a Foreverland for the entire world.

Danny, living outside of Spain since escaping the very first Foreverland, begins receiving mysterious clues that lead him to Cyn. They are both Foreverland survivors, but they have more in common than survival. They become pieces of another grand plan, one designed to stop Tyler Ballard. No one knows who is sending the clues, but some suspect Reed, another Foreverland survivor. Reed, however, is dead.

Everyone will make one last trip back to Foreverland to find out who sent them. And why.

Three hundred years after nuclear war destroyed most of the Earth, Southshaw exists as a lush oasis in a desolate, charred world steeped in radiation. The Ancients were able to keep out the mutants and preserve Southshaw’s mountain valley, establishing a peaceful and thriving community built on faith and simplicity of life. Technology is forbidden, as the pursuit of knowledge is believed to have led to the nuclear apocalypse twelve generations ago. It is Semper’s duty to manage the community and provide spiritual leadership to Southshaw’s citizens.

Dane is in line to become the thirteenth Semper of Southshaw. On the eve of his sixteenth birthday, however, he finds that the ghost stories from his childhood and the frightening tales of mutants in the north are not just legends. But the legends are not entirely true, either. And suddenly he’s faced with a choice he never expected to make: should he take his place as Semper, obeying his cruel uncle and twelve generations of Southshaw Truth, or should he follow his heart and risk exile and death to unearth the real truth? An exotic huntress, a mythical ghost-man, and a tailor’s daughter hold the keys to his answer. And to the survival of Southshaw–and possibly all of humanity–itself.

Ho-hum, thinks our hero. But suddenly all three cases begin to converge in an entirely ominous way–the toxic dumping, the dock leases, and the too-good-to-be-true casino job. How is that possible? Could it be Tubby’s been set up as the fall guy in a Mob effort to expand its gambling empire?

Suddenly Tubby IS doing something different and exciting — he’s running for his life!

In this book by Arian Lev you will find answers to these questions. Her explanations will take you to the deepest levels of the subconscious and expose its most hidden secrets and codes.

Decades of research have proved that the subconscious has real control over our lives, our choices and our behavioral patterns whereas our conscious awareness, our so called rational side, has only a minor level of control over what we do and who we are.

Today there are many people looking for the pathway to our subconscious. Numerous books, among them some well known best sellers, have dealt with the subconscious and our ability to fashion a new reality by adopting positive thoughts.

This book will give the reader a broader and deeper understanding of the subconscious, of its structure and of the way it functions. Arian Lev reveals new outlooks and identifies a number of internal codes that link the subconscious to the brain and which block personal development.

The book describes in detail the therapy offered at the Arian Lev Institute which provides a way of removing these blockages.

Readers will find themselves embarking on a fascinating voyage into the deepest reaches of the soul and the subconscious. In the course of this voyage you will gain a new understanding of the how your personality and the reality of your life are formed.

The book is based on the Arian Lev method which the author has developed. Thousands of patients from Israel and all four corners of the globe have testified to the way in which their lives changed radically for the better. In the wake of the voyage they embarked on they were awakened to a new reality. Their lives today are intense, filled with confidence, acceptance and love.

You can read the review I wrote if you click here or type in http://smarturl.it/vsm3cy into your web browser.

The year is two thousand and thirteen. The United States is braced for a potential government shutdown and a US default on its debt. Washington is at the height of political dysfunction.

Renowned Harvard professor, Winston Bernard Huntster II, believes it is time to stop the run-a-way spending, abuse of power, and the self-serving politicians who have ground the gears of Washington to a halt. He airs a controversial documentary which draws the attention of millions of Americans across the United States. But as the movement takes hold and the numbers multiply each day, its leader, Winston Huntster, is found murdered in Boston Common from a gunshot wound to the head. His death has outraged an angry nation and incited its citizens to take to the streets.

They will soon learn there is but one weapon that can crack the stronghold on Capitol Hill—the power of Article V.

As a bonus for horror fans and those who celebrate Halloween 24/7/365, woven throughout the prose are references to over 600 horror, science fiction and fantasy films. Relish the novel, fight the fear and find them all – if you dare.

Book Description:

Did you ever wonder why people with chronic ill-health usually suffer from multiple diseases? Have you heard of Gut-Immune-Skin-Brain axis?

Renowned gastroenterologist and nutritionist explores the dark bowels of leaky gut and its myriad associations with various diseases based on the concept of gut-skin-immune-brain axis. He offers practical strategies based on his decades of clinical experience.

Gut is the largest immune organ spread over surface area of a football field and with a brain of its own comprising of 100 million nerve cells. The intestinal barrier is designed to be our health fortress. However, it is not a wall of concrete.

A microscopic layer of intestinal cells separates the body from hostile fecal environment of trillions of bacteria and toxic substances. The chain fence barrier allows absorption of nutrients while combating bad stuff.

A dysfunctional, leaky fence barrier allows hostile foreign elements access to the body. This may result in a defensive fighting posture of inflammation and immune reactions in gut and other organ systems.

The terms “leaky gut” and “leaky gut syndrome” are not synonymous.

1. What is it that leaks?

2. Where does it leak to?

3. What causes the gut to leak?

4. Are there tests available to check if your gut is leaky?

5. What are the diseases linked to leaky gut?

6. Can leaky gut affect organs beyond our intestines e.g. skin, brain, etc.?

The author dives into the controversies surrounding above questions and provides evidence-based concepts and strategies underlying strengthening intestinal fence and healing damaged barrier.

As she settles in Tel Aviv to begin university while her family adjusts to life in government housing, she begins to question the values she once held dear: belief in God and the Jewish state. The dance floor of the world-famous Tel Aviv nightclub, Atlantis, provides fertile ground for the rebel-in-waiting. Its liberal and charismatic owner, Ziv Harel, is more than glad to transform a “religious settler” into a nightlife queen .Their mysterious attraction leads both on a path of self-discovery, but how far will Sarah go to question who she is – and at what cost?

An ark in the middle of suburban Oakland was interesting but not strange by California standards. Even one built by peaceful cultists preparing for the coming flood.

The police aren’t convinced.

As Jake and his carpenter sidekick, Rosie, trail the wealthy visionary from a health-food factory in Sonoma to a casino in Tahoe, thugs, drugs and the murdered body of Noah’s attractive assistant add up to a lot less than a biblical tale. And Jake’s got a gut feeling the floodgates are just the beginning to open.

These new English verse translations are mainly based on Swedish tradition.

Book Description:

REALLY BAD NEWS–THE BABY-SITTER COULD BE A MURDERER!

A year following Boston-based auto mechanic Alex Glauberman’s first brush with murder, mystery, and the life of an amateur detective (in RETURN TO SENDER), he’s recovered from cancer and chemotherapy; he’s studying tai chi for its pleasures and therapeutic effects; and he’s getting on with his life. Then, in the space of a two-minute phone call, he’s ensnared in another mystery.

His anniversary dinner with girlfriend Meredith comes to an abrupt halt when a quick check-in with the babysitter yields the news from Alex’s sleepy nine-year-old that the babysitter has left: “She said it was an emergency. She said the emergency was that somebody was dead.”

More worrisome still, the babysitter, college student Suzanne Lutrello, cannot be found, and then her ex-boyfriend is savagely killed.

Alex’s newly minted private detective skills come quickly into play, but he soon discovers he isn’t the only one looking for Suzanne. As he outruns her pursuers and their threats, he navigates the world of old Boston money to its intersection with small-town corruption, high-end prostitution, and drug-addiction recovery, in a life-or-death finish amid the stark white New England winter woods.

For fans of Jewish detectives like Rabbi Small, Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus, Rebecca Schwartz, Jake Samson—even Moses Wine (without the wisecracks); and those who love vintage male sleuths like Ellery Queen, Gideon Oliver, Stanley Hastings, and almost all British detectives–the ones who’re not too cozy, yet not too hard-boiled. This case is more of an action adventure story than a traditional mystery—but trust us, it’ll appeal to fans of the traditional mystery as well as those who’ll appreciate Alex’s putting his tai-chi training to good use. How do we know? Because Alex is one of those dependable detectives all too rare in crime fiction—a private investigator you actually like to be with. Not too smart-mouthed, not too close-mouthed, just…kind of a mensch.

Meet John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Redd Foxx, Debbie Reynolds, Louis Prima and other celebrities.

In 1968, Jim Sinay packed up his green Caddy convertible and drove from Canton, Ohio to Las Vegas. His “Uncle” Ed Pucci, who was Frank Sinatra’s bodyguard and a close family friend, set him up with an entry level dealer’s job in Vegas. Over the next three decades, Jimmy experienced all Las Vegas had to offer. He dealt craps to famous gangsters in a private game, he interacted with John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Redd Foxx, Debbie Reynolds, Louis Prima and other celebrities. Jimmy was a confirmed bachelor who lived the high life with the ladies, although at times his carousing nearly cost him his life. He saw hundreds of thousands of dollars bet on one roll of the dice, he caught gambling cheaters and had run ins with some very nasty types.

Folktales from a bygone era

Jimmy’s stories are folktales from a bygone era, the 1960s, 70s and 80s when Vegas was still a relatively small town. Back in the day, the “joints” were ruled by men whose names all ended in vowels and there was a good time to be had 24/7. When It Was Great will make you laugh and touch your heart, but most of all it will take you back to the Las Vegas of yesterday, when the Rat Pack played at the Sands, Elvis headlined at the Hilton and working stiffs like Jimmy partied like there was no tomorrow.

In a small town in Arkansas, two lives that seemingly have nothing in common will converge and change each other forever. A brilliant but tormented street artist and an ex-track star whose career was cut short by a heart condition.

Aimee DeLuca had a promising athletic career before her heart gave out during a high school track and field contest. Aimee struggles to find her way after spending time with a deceased grandmother during a near death experience. Reizo Rush is a street artist whose torment fuels his desire to add color to the gray walls of the city. But Reizo’s tagging and the two voices only he hears land him in perpetual trouble with both his teachers and the law. 

During a chance encounter, the two quickly find out they have much more in common than love. When they stumble upon a century-old storm cellar hidden underground on Aimee’s uncle’s ranch, they unearth a cellar full of artifacts and a hundred-year-old Will. Once the news of the discovery leaks out, a drug-dealing teen and a mysterious soul named General are determined to bury the truth along with anyone who gets in their way.
