The Shiro Project by David Khara

No downtime, the story is fast paced and addictive. A thriller whose pages we turn eagerly to know more about the hero's adventures while traveling and reliving the pages of our dark history.

The Neurotic’s Guide To Avoiding Enlightenment by Chris Niebauer, Ph.D. – Book Review

Reviewed by Raymond Mathiesen

4 out of 5 stars

 

Deep thoughts about the self and self-improvement…

 

Even a quick look at the self-help shelf at any bookstore will quickly reveal that the industry is booming and that most of us seem to have a secret desire to ‘be a better person’.  We search for that magic formula which will give us enlightenment, hopefully the quicker the better.  But is enlightenment, as we understand it, really achievable?  If we did have a better life what would it be like?  Would it be very different from our current life?  Even more, what if we found that this ‘self’, which we are so bent on improving, turned out not to really exist, to be a myth, an unreliable creation of our own brain?  Can modern neuroscience throw any light on this subject, and if so do you have to be an expert to understand it?  If you are confused already get ready to have many of your ideas challenged by Chris Niebauer’s thought provoking book The Neurotics Guide To Avoiding Enlightenment: How The Left-brain Plays Unending Games Of Self-improvement.

 

Many self-help books are written from a New Age / Eastern Mysticism perspective and in a way Niebauer’s book fits into this category.  Niebauer is strongly influenced both by the mid twentieth century author Alan Watts and the contemporary writer Eckhart Tolle.  Watts wrote on a variety of Eastern Religions including Zen, Hinduism and Taoism and Tolle is greatly influenced by Buddhism.  To describe the book as being purely of this ilk, however, would be greatly misleading.  Also, to describe The Neurotics Guide simply as a self-help book, would be equally deceptive.  Certainly there are mind-exercises and meditation techniques included which the reader may find helps them achieve a new mind-state, and which gives them a new approach to life, but this is very much a book of theory / philosophy which concentrates on challenging our standard ideas about ourselves and our lives.  Niebauer is indeed “a college professor specializing in cognitive neuropsychology” (Preface) and the book has a heavy neuroscience content.  In essence Niebauer is attempting to give Eastern Mysticism a neuroscience framework, taking it from the world of pure ideas and giving it a firm background in science.

Book review of Tortured Souls by Kimber Leigh Wheaton, a ghost-filled read!

Comment by Beck Valley Books Blog on Thursday

Trouble in Paradise is the third book in an excellent series by Deborah Brown - Paradise Series, it's all kicking off in the Keys, Madison and buddies are knee deep in trouble and have iou's to the big hitters in the area. How much trouble one lady can land herself in as well as trying to help her friends is unbelievable. The whole team has to give everything if they are all to survive.

This novel is full of excitement, sexual tension and romances and superbly backed up with humorous quips. The characters have grown into a very moulded group and their traits shine through.

Another very easy but enthralling read and a lot more going on, odd jobs for the local don, problems of trying to evict troublesome residents and also solve the mystery of a man floating in the local waters. 

The women will love the hunks with their dark sides and overprotective nature, with the female characters trying to prove they can live and survive without them, which adds a touch of feminism to the story. The fast cars, the gun tottering and dodgy characters embellished in a warm weather climate makes a rip roaring read.

What a book!! This will bring out your deepest thoughts, stirring them up and making your heart burst. It will open your eyes to the dark world that many people suffer from whether it be alcohol / drug abuse, child abuse, mental illness and more. On top of which comes the most cutest, loveable little girl, Quinn and her loving father Brett, who will melt your heart.

There's a predator on the loose with one mission on his mind - to rid the local area of pedophiles, to keep the children in the area safe so they don't have to undergo the same torturous childhood that he had gone through. How does he do this and what body parts does he hide in the geocaching sites? You will have to read the book but be prepared for some 'coarse' words here and there, bringing out the true flavour of the mystery.

Officer Brett Reed, Quinn's father, along with his partner Clay try to track down the predator. Yet Brett has worse problems to deal with much closer to home. His addict of a wife sinks lower into despair whilst having custody of their only daughter Quinn. His daughter is found in the street on her own and is taken into protective care. You would think it would be a straight forward handing over to the father but no, it turns out to be the worst thing that could have happened.

Cache a Predator by Michelle Weidenbenner shows how years of child cruelty can affect those in later life and how the suffering is passed on to their loved ones. Personally it made me really think about how unfair the legal system is, and in this case how ludicrous it is when dealing with the custody of children towards fathers, it also brings to light frightening potential flaws in trusted protective services that will make may your skin crawl.

Get ready for the story twists, unexpected moments, the holding of breath and the emotional grab of this brilliant thriller, you won't want to put this one down !!
