Book Reviews Published Since Basket No. 24

Martha Stevens-David Review: "New Beginnings" by J. Gawlik
July 14, 2015

Right from the very beginning, the story carried the reader on a journey that sadly, many other humans have found themselves involved in when trying to make sense of life, love and the pursuit of happiness. The main character finds herself married with a small child and soon realizes that the man she thought would be with her all of her days, was the worst kind of husband possible.

Laure McCourt Lopez Review: "It's All about Him: Intimacy with God" By Dr. Lois Brittell
July 14, 2015

There are books that engage the reader in fast-paced adventure or melancholy drama while others offer visitations to historical backdrops but "It's All about Him," by Dr. Lois Brittell, allows its reading audience moments of reflective solitude and places of pause while journeying a road less travelled. May the reader feel inspired by the gentle prompting along the way as the tangibles of today's society such as anxiety, fear, anger, just to name a few, are thoughtfully explored; note that along the road less traveled there is ample time to put down the backpack, curl up into a comfortable spot and seek wisdom and answers in this narrative of spiritual refreshment.

Milt Gross Book Review: "Death of a Mill Girl" by Clyde Linsley
July 14, 2015

There is no information anywhere I looked about how to contact the author. I'd like to contact him, and his photo makes him appear friendly. Should he read this, maybe he'll contact me. Are you reading this, Clyde Linsley? A very interesting book based on a true setting. This is the first self-published book I've felt was really good. This book was good, a good story except that things got a bit wordy near the end so I was losing part of the story.

Martha Stevens-David Review: "A Life in Two Worlds" by Thomas Hughes
July 14, 2015

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the author's writings of having been born into a family, that due to his father's occupation and time and place, had to endure many heart wrenching incidents in order to just survive. And I was also impressed that as a very, intelligent young man, the author had the wherewithal to keep detailed diaries of what "war" really brings. As humans, we often never give much thought about how a "father's" profession might bring harm to one's innocent family members.

Martha Stevens-David Review: "Shot in the Head" by Katherine Dering
July 14, 2015

Paul, one of the boys in this Irish clan is diagnosed with Schizophrenia at age sixteen and the telling carries one through the devastation that his large family had to endure for the his sake and well-being. This work is very well-done and extremely educational because nearly every family can relate when a family member is stricken with an incurable illness. I was struck by the way the author told of her family's love for one another and I could feel their suffering and sorrow when they finally had to let Paul go.

"The Baker Boys"

By Clinton mhic Aonghais (McInnes)

"The Baker Boys" By Clinton mhic Aonghais (McInnes)
CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand. -- When most can be deleted with the push of a button, how much history will we leave for our own ancestors to remember us by?

This very thought occurred to Russell Baker when he discovered his grandfather, Victor Baker's, century old, long forgotten, World War I diary.

In addition to vividly describing battles and near death experiences from German U-boats, the journal revealed an unknown family secret; Victor had an older brother, Malcolm, who gave his life during the conflict.

Russell became obsessed unearthing as much as he could about his ancestor's and their contribution to World War I. He turned to his friend and genealogy expert, Clint McInnes for help.

Together, the two scoured the diary and pieced together the unique war story of the brothers. They detailed their findings in the book "The Baker Boys." Containing pictures, quotes, excerpts from the actual diary, as well as little known facts about World War I the book pays homage not only to Victor and Malcolm Baker, but to all those who fought in 'the war to end all wars'.

"This is a story not just of the war, but also of family misfortune, emigration and brotherly love," McInnes said. It's a reminder to us all that our freedom has not come easily and that sacrifice should be remembered and respected."

Clinton mhic Aonghais who has a love of humanity and the human spirit, researched, wrote and complied "The Baker Boys" in remembrance of those who fell and were injured in WWI. As an author, he is a spritely 63 years of age, with a love also in the outdoors and military history's little known facts. Clinton currently lives in Christchurch, New Zealand.

"Men Can Wear Dresses Too"

by Catie Maye

"Men Can Wear Dresses Too" by Catie Maye
United Kingdom -- the author had a secret that he kept hidden from his wife and childhood sweetheart Carole, for more than quarter of a century - the fact that he enjoyed going out dressed up as a woman. The book is filled with colourful characters such as the tempestuous and sexually liberated mistress Tamarah and in exotic locations - Paris, Amsterdam and Tel Aviv. But it's more than simply an autobiography and personal account. Catie has completed an enormous amount of meticulous research to give the reader a summary of how transgender issues have been viewed over the past four to five decades. It's improving, but not quickly enough, she says (while giving us the evidence to prove it). Certainly, sculptor Grayson Perry has brought male to female cross dressing to the public eye and made it more acceptable in today's society. Catie's book is primed to be the next step towards further liberation for a subject that has surely been buried for too long.

Synopsis The book outlines the apparently 'ordinary' life of Catie Maye, a journey through marriage, a childtraversing the world from the South of England to more exotic locations abroad, Tel Aviv, Paris and Amsterdam included. As a young boy, aged nine, Catie gave in to his impulses and dressed up in his sister's clothes. He loved how it made him feel and was keen to repeat the exercise - despite being seen by his mother. Ever vigilant she monitored him for further deviation from 'normal' boy behaviour and which only added to Catie's guilt about the incident. It was to remain a secret between only him and his mother. The pleasure of dressing in female clothing however never left him. His cross dressing activities led to his meeting a number of colourful characters, many of whom make an appearance in this book. Men Can Wear Dresses Too is a funny and sad personal account of how cross dressing has affected one individual. It also takes a serious and factual look at issues surrounding the subject. In doing so it hopes to make cross dressing more public - and acceptable - to the population at large. The author considers and explains growth sectors within the transgender field such as 'dual gender,' 'gender paradox' and 'gender confusion.' More poignantly, the book investigates the inevitable negativity cross dressing engenders - addiction, guilt, loneliness and dishonesty.

Catie said: "This book represents not just my personal journey but one taken by everyone who in some way does not conform to the society's definition of 'normal.' For too long the truth surrounding cross dressing has been hidden away - buried in closets with the dresses themselves. Now is the time for recognition, acceptance and an understanding of this issue. I want this book to be the first step towards that." Men Can Wear Dresses Too is available now at Amazon UK

Catie Maye is a male to female cross dresser. 'She' was born in South London in 1960 and has a sister. She is a writer and is currently studying for a BA in History. When she has time she enjoys 'adventure' travel. She is happily settled in a loving and supportive relationship with current partner Nicky in Buckinhamshire.

"Book Business Planning for Small Business"

by Warren Harmer

"Book Business Planning for Small Business" by Warren Harmer
MELBOURNE, Australia -- Small business issues are sure to be a hot topic in the upcoming elections, but what the candidates say likely won't help you actually run the day-to-day operations of a small business.

However, author Dr. Warren Harmer's new book, Business Planning for Small Business, directly addresses the keys to a successful small business. With over 20 years of experience as a small business owner, Harmer bypasses corporate issues and hits the reality of creating and executing plans for small business.

"I have been to countless seminars and conferences with big ideas that evaporate as soon as the business owner gets back to work," Harmer said. "This book is developed from real experiences -- it appreciates the challenges of actual small businesses."

Harmer's book gives readers a purpose for business planning and clear instructions on how to do it effectively.

"Business planning is a vital component of a successful small business, and it's not as hard as you think," Harmer said.

For more information, visit www.warrenharmer.com.

Warren Harmer resides in Melbourne, Australia where he is the current owner of The Business Plan Company. Harmer has his Ph.D. in science from Monash University, but found his passion in the small business world. After 20 years of owning small businesses and 12 years of small business consulting, Harmer has a strong sense of the problems facing small business owners. Aside from his book, Harmer also writes at Flying Solo and businesses.com.au.

"Fight For Your Dream"

by Elaine H. Sharp

"Fight For Your Dream" by Elaine H. Sharp
United Kingdom -- While facing their darkest days, people find inspiration in the most unlikely of places. For some its music or the words of a deceased love one. For Elaine Sharp, her decision to keep living in the wake of cancer, OCD and depression was made by the purchase of an Alpaca and a Llama. Everything is told in 'Fight For Your Dream' -- an autobiography that will impart life-changing inspiration on those so close to giving up or anyone lacking the confidence to achieve their goal in life. Synopsis: This compelling autobiography details the true life story of one woman's fight for survival. It details the depth of resilience that some extraordinary individuals can display when facing their own mortality. Fight for your dream chronicles Elaine's life story and personal struggle with breast cancer, OCD and depression. It is an inspirational, honest and often humorous account of how one Alpaca and one Llama gave Elaine a lifeline to hang onto and formed the catalyst to change her life forever. From government office worker, to award winning Alpaca breeder, businesswoman and self made millionairess this is Elaine's true life story. This amazing read gives a heart-warming and moving account into her incredible journey to success.

"There were times when I felt total despair; I was locked in my own personal prison and no one could reach me. If this was to be my existence I didn't want to continue living". Then, when I needed them most my two four legged angels entered my life. Little did I know back then that they would be my salvation and set me free to find my true self. It's been a long hard road but it's been worth it. I hope my life story will push anyone out of darkness and back into the light. Seventeen years ago at the age of 34 my diagnosis turned my life and that of my families upside down. Life would never be the same again. I feel privileged and humbled to have met these wonderful creatures and I truly believe I found my vocation in life. I hope that anyone who is suffering from OCD, depression or any type of cancer will find the determination and courage to fight on and find some inspiration through reading my story. I know from my own experiences that even in our darkest moments of despair there is always hope, you just need to search for it.

About the author, in her own words: I was born on the 11th October 1963 into a working class family. I was the youngest of three sisters. I'm now 51 years of age, and three years ago, after much persuasion I decided it was finally time to tell my story. Over the past seventeen years I feel I've been on an incredible journey, it's been a rollercoaster at times. There have been some incredible highs but there have been some incredible lows, facing my demons has been the hardest thing I've ever had to do and still is at times. The reality of it all though is that generally I am a much happier and contented person than I ever was before. I dared to dream and somehow the dream came true!

"Tomorrow I'm Dead: A Memoir"

by Bun Yom

"Tomorrow I'm Dead: A Memoir" by Bun Yom
SEATTLE --The Cambodian Genocide (1975-1979) is in the top 10 worst cases of genocide in the world. This tragedy took the lives of approximately 25 percent of the population, nearly two million Cambodians. As a Cambodian American who survived, Bun Yom, lives to share his personal story of struggle.

During the rule of the communist-run organization, Khmer Rouge, all Cambodians were denied their basic human rights and forced into harsh agricultural work. In Yom's new memoir, "Tomorrow I'm Dead," he sheds light on life of enslavement and the hardship and cruelty the Cambodian people endured.

Through his stories of courage and perseverance, Yom retells his life working in the "killing fields", his rescue that resulted in serving in the Cambodian Freedom Army, his life as a refugee, and his immigration to the United States to reconnect with his lost family.

"This memoir is a chance to document the experiences I survived at a young age," Yom said. "By sharing my story, I hope to inform and motivate others to live purposefully and strive to make the world a better place."

Tomorrow I'm Dead is the only known first-person account of the Freedom Fighter's heroic liberation of slaves from the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields. During the early 1960s, a Cambodian named Pol Pot became the leader of an underground Communist Party which opposed Cambodia’s new Royal Monarchist government. As his party grew, Pol Pot formed a resistance army in the jungles of Cambodia, known as the Khmer Rouge (Red Cambodians). In 1970, U.S. military forces entered Cambodia in an attempt to expel North Vietnamese rebels who had fled into Cambodia. (Read more overview at Barnes & Noble)

Bun Yom was born in Pailin, Cambodia and lived a relatively normal childhood until the age of 14 when the Khmer Rouge took over. After being rescued, he became the greatest leader in the Cambodian Freedom Army. He holds two black belts in Tae Kwon Do. This is Yom's first book. Currently, he resides in Ellensburg, Washington.

"Imagine"

by Robert Beedham

"Imagine" by Robert Beedham
United Kingdom -- After being astonished by the transcription, Beedham undertook years of research that led him deep into pop-culture and the cult phenomenon of 'The 27 Club': a long list of super-star celebrities that suddenly 'died' aged 27, including Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse and more. The discovery of 'The 27 Club' and the transcription, together with other allegedly dead celebrities, led Beedham to create the world's first 'found bookage,' a genuine page-turner that any young person, adult, or pop culture fan, will be amazed by. But, could it be true? 'Imagine' will make all readers wish it is true: a secret island refuge for some of history's most prominent 'dead' celebrities, and not just aged 27. But, paradise comes at a cost...

Synopsis: Young hipster Jimmy has an identity crisis and escapes his secret island idyll to New York in search of his mysterious great grand-father's past. He's baffled by NY and pursued by The Hunters, but after defeating them, discovers the incredible truth: The Island is a dystopian society full of celebrities thought dead, and his great grandfather is...James Dean. Sex-obsessed, accidentally amusing air-head Jimmy videos his story in a NY lawyer's office. He wants to discover his enigmatic ancestor's identity, and ultimately his own. His tale is strange, and riveting. He fled The Island with girl-friend Marsha and three friends, but doesn't know where it is, or why his great grandfather went there. He's way out of his depth, and astonished to hear music from The Island in bars and diners, then realises his life is in danger from ruthless assassins. The Hunters, a glamorous couple, want to kill him and his friends. Jimmy doesn't know why, but finds he's resourceful, and leads his friends to safety. They discover the bizarre underbelly of city life, but that the killers can find them, because Jimmy has been chipped. The group are picked off one by one, then Jayne, owner of a music bar, helps.

"God: Accused or Defended?: Solving the Unsolvable Paradox"

by Larry E. Ford

"God: Accused or Defended?: Solving the Unsolvable Paradox" By Larry E. Ford
ALBANY, Ga. -- During acts of terror and natural disasters many ask the question, "Where is God?" or begin to point blame. But who is responsible for the natural and moral evils that exist?

Many theologians and philosophers have tried to solve the paradox of theodicy but stray from or redefine the basic characteristics of God. Minister Larry E. Ford combines his decades of experience in biblical studies and support from the Bible to define the true role God, humans and adversarial spirits play in the evils of the world and to solve the long debated topic of why evil exists.

In Ford's new book, he analyzes what other theories on evil leave out and takes a deeper look at scripture to show how God's natural laws, moral laws and human sin play an important role in the existence of evil.

"'God: Accused or Defended?' will provide answers to why God allows evil to exist in His creation--answers that have eluded some of the brightest minds among us," Ford said. "Despite the negative appearance of the consequences mankind and creation suffer, the book points out the most amazing plan that God has in place for the ultimate salvation of mankind and all of creation."

Larry E. Ford has been a minister for 50 years. He holds bachelor's degrees in German and theology, master's degrees in theology and education administration, and a professional certification in English and literature. In 1994, he produced and hosted a local Georgia AM radio program called "Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth" and later hosted "Plain Truth with Larry Ford" and "Lessons from the Bible." Also in 1994, Ford became the CEO and Pastor for The Seventh Day Christian Assembly, a non-Adventist organization that offers free Christian educational outreach materials, including a 12-lesson Bible study course and a quarterly magazine, "Spirit and Truth."

"Walking With Herb: A Spiritual Golfing Journey to the Masters"

by Joe Bullock

"Walking With Herb: A Spiritual Golfing Journey to the Masters" by Joe Bullock
In Joe Bullock's new book, "Walking With Herb: A Spiritual Golfing Journey to the Masters," the reader can imagine the possibility of competing at the highest level of sport with the help of a little practice, a lot of faith and a golf guru named Herb.

In the story, God has decided he is tired of watching people fail to live up to their potential. He selects a very ordinary man--a banker named Joe--to prove that people are far more capable than they believe they are, and calls him to play in the Masters Golf Tournament.

Sixty-three-year-old Joe Goodman thinks nothing much in his background distinguishes him from other guys his age. As the former amateur golfer's life continues to unfold in a reasonably satisfying, somewhat predictable pattern, Joe is enjoying a happy marriage, working as a bank executive, and gearing up for retirement. But as he is about to discover, life has a way of throwing a curveball that changes everything. (More Overview at Amazon)

Bullock believes too many people settle for repetitive, unrewarding lives. He wants to help others live up to their potential and create a stronger bond with God, who is presented as humorous and approachable in "Walking With Herb."

Joe Bullock has been a banker for more than forty years and has managed several institutions. He played golf in college and won several city and regional championships as a young man. He currently resides with his wife and a variety of loveable dogs in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
