Title: A Meeting with GOD
Author: Mike Ward
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Genre: Religion/Spiritual
Format: Ebook

This book is my true recolection of the events leading up to the Mystical experience that i had in february of 1993 Immediately after my Spiritual Pilgrimage to the holy shrines on mount Carmel, Israel - The world centre of the Bahai Faith. My experience was so intense that it took me over a year to recover a sense of normality and be able to return to my work as a contact design draughtsman, to support my family. I had been a Bahai fo ten years prior to this - but i did not know the reality of Faith that i had been investigating at all, i was just aware of the iceing on the cake - a Religion that seemed to tick all the right boxes and had the ingredients to appeal to a wide percentage of Mankind. Until i visited the tombs of the Prophets on Mount Carmel, and abzorbed a lions share of that Holy spirit latent witin that Sacred place which soon led to a full mystical union with God as the spirit of Baha'u'llah here on earth. I believe that i was chosen for that experience because the Spirit knew that i would one day reveal the full details of His power to the world and publish the experience for all to read as a book and on the world wide web. So here you all are - read and be inspired, and may God bless you all - Michael.

Book Feature: Government Control of News by Corydon B. Dunham



Inside the Book:




Title: Government Control of News
Author: Corrydon B. Dunham
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Law/Civil Law
Format: Ebook

“Because of the overwhelming changes in media within the past twenty years, First Amendment values are more vital than ever to this country’s freedom. This thorough study brings to the forefront the reasons that government regulation of news content violates the public interest and the fundamental principles of the First Amendment. A recent FCC decision may even threaten the freedom of news on the Internet.

The U.S. State Department urged at World Press Freedom Day in 2011 that journalists should not be the only ones standing for press freedom. “Each one of us who recognize the value of an informed citizenry must also stand up for this fundamental right.”  - www.misa.org/mediarelease/pressfreedom.html


"I do not endorse any author's view. I am a mere writer, book editor, and book reviewer, but I can appreciate a superbly-researched and well-written book when I see one, regardless of that author's point of view." - The Bookpleasures.com Review

About the Author

Corydon B. Dunham enjoyed a lengthy career working on television free press issues as a First Amendment lawyer and executive vice president for a television network in charge of its legal matters, relations with the government, and network broadcast standards

Book Feature: The Dilution of America by Louis C. Gilde & Lawrence C. Gambone



Inside the Book:


Title: The Dilution of America
Author: Louis C. Gilde with Lawrence C. Gambone
Publisher: AuthorHouse
Genre: Biography
Format: Ebook

The Dilution of America

America, American society and American industry have all become diluted. What this means is that the country’s political-social-economic situation no longer reflects the design and purpose our founding fathers intended. Many factors play into this problem; and Lou Gilde and Larry Gambone have successfully teamed up in an attempt to cite most of them:

The failure of the “Greatest Generation” to prevent the insidious creep  of socialism;

 The paradigm change from business/government cooperation to  anti-business sentiment;

 The failure of our inner-city programs, to include industry incentives  and schools;

 The curtailing of religious expression and moral behavior;

 The eroding of true representative governance by a bloated, unwieldy,  and unaccountable bureaucracy;

 The demise of a true free enterprise system resulting from over  regulation; and

 The movement from capitalism to socialism by ever-increasing  entitlement (socialistic) programs.

We have reached an important turning point with the economy, the environment, and with the many socio-political issues facing our great nation. Unless the average voter realizes that government is handcuffing our economy, we will suffer economic malaise and worse. Our present approach to governance must be reversed if we are to remain an economic powerhouse in the 21st century.

To do this, we need an educated electorate who will vote wisely in the coming elections in order to resolve the many Governmental problems that have occurred in the past. Until the American voters recognize the fact that Government is its own worst enemy -- and is unintentionally becoming an enemy of the people, the environment, and the economy -- we will continue down the path to ruin. Walt Kelly, in the comic strip, Pogo, said it best: “We have met the enemy and he is us.”

About the Author

Mr. Gilde's life experiences provide an interesting perspective challenging the concept of America's "Greatest Generation." He volunteered for World War II service in November of 1942 and spent twenty months overseas in the European Theater.

His entire professional career was spent as an industrial environmentalist with unique involvement in cooperative efforts with federal researchers prior to the creation of USEPA. This activity based on innovative waste water treatment resulted in over twenty presentations in the U.S. and overseas.

Because of the early research work, he collaborated with USEPA as an advisor in the preparation of its field manual on "Overland Flow Treatment of Waste Waters" and was awarded in 1979 by Region II EPA Certificate of Appreciation. During the 1970's he testified before Congress concerning rule makings in the environmental area that created unnecessary costs for business resulting in increased costs for citizens. Mr. Gilde also obtained two patents in the environmental field.

During retirement Mr. Gilde did volunteer work for the World Environment Center, a non-profit spinoff from the United Nations assisting U.S. Aide from the State Department on environmental projects incorporate in U.S. Aide programs. He consulted in over a half dozen projects for different countries and was sent to Egypt and Romania to conduct studies.

Mr. Gilde witnessed environmental matters from an unusual perspective in relation to business, government and the economy including the location of numerous new plant sites vs. older plants in distressed areas. He sets forth recommendations for a less confrontational future to foster a more dynamic economy where most of the federal bureaucracy is eliminated and the states are free to soar even higher than Texas and other pro-economy states. A section of the book is devoted to the revitalization of the City of Camden, NJ as a national demonstration for urban America.

Book Feature: Nursing is Caring by Beverly Wheeler, MSN, RN, ACNS-BC



Inside the Book:


Title: Nursing is Caring
Author: Beverly Wheeler, MSN, RN, ACNS-BC
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Medical
Format: Ebook

Nurses work long hours, deal with difficult patients, and their job gets messy. So why do so many men and women enter the profession?

That question is answered in Nursing Is Caring, which highlights the experiences of Beverly Wheeler's former students at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Texas School of Nursing.

The students were asked to write a short paper about a patient they had taken care of since entering nursing school who had inspired them and made them realize they were in the right profession.

Their essays show that while people enter the profession for numerous reasons, they all want to care for people—and not just patients. Nurses play a critical role in helping families start the healing process.

Whether it is holding a patient's hand, talking to a patient, or being a shoulder to cry on, nurses do much more than take blood or carry out a doctor's instructions.

Whether you're thinking about becoming a nurse, questioning why you entered the field or simply seeking more information about the profession, you'll be inspired by the personal accounts in this tribute to the profession.

Book Blast: Anger Management by Mark Stricklin



Inside the Book:



Title: Anger Management
Author: Mark Stricklin
Publisher: iUniverse
Genre: Psychology
Format: Ebook

Author Mark Stricklin knows what it's like to do bonehead things in spite of your best intentions and then get angry at yourself (and occasionally with others). In fact, unless we have given up caring about everything, we all get angry from time to time-and we all need ways to deal with that feeling. In Anger Management, Stricklin explores what makes us angry, how to deal with our anger, and how to deal with angry people. What's more, he focuses specifically on managing anger rather than eliminating it. He draws his knowledge both from his degree in psychology and from many years of dealing with people from all walks of life, who brought with them a wealth of knowledge and experience to his weekly classes in a transitional shelter. Through these classes, Stricklin has learned, relearned, changed, and reevaluated the process of embracing anger and anger management-and now he seeks to share that insight. Practical and straightforward, this guide offers down-to-earth advice on what causes anger; how to manage, accept, and express it; and how to deal with others who are angry.
