BOOK EXCERPT:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Greg Gutfeld wants to be your new guru, and he hates himself for it. Before Greg Gutfeld was a Fox News star and a New York Times bestselling author, he was a self-help writer for health magazines who had no idea what he was talking about. But now, after years of experience, he finally feels qualified to guide people on the journey of life—call this book punishment for his sins, and a huge reward for you! In The Plus, Greg teaches you how to brainwash yourself into better behavior, retaining the pluses in your life and eliminating the minuses. His approach to self-help is simple, and perfect for cynics; it’s not about positive thinking in the short term, it’s about positive being in the long term. With tough love and more than a little political incorrectness, he delivers sage wisdom such as: -If you aren’t getting happier as you’re getting older, you’re doing it wrong. -Resist the media’s command to expand destructive narratives. -If you’re in the same place you were three years ago, wake up. -Don’t tweet when drinking. Modern life grows emptier and emptier as society becomes increasingly polarized, and even those who don’t subscribe to New Age beliefs are seeking comfort and meaning. In The Plus, Greg shows how skeptics too can advance themselves for the betterment of their lives and the healing of their communities.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Define a healthy relationship. Is it filled with trust, respect, honesty, communication? There must be a balance in the power and control. A relationship takes two. It is a partnership.

What happens when there is an imbalance in this power and control, when the one person who has accepted this responsibility abuses it? You find yourself in an unhealthy relationship where domestic violence could occur frequently and severely. The Plus Factor is an autobiographical account of my journey from tragedy to triumph. It is a survivors story that describes in vivid detail what happens when love becomes violent. Domestic violence did not ruin my life: it gave me a second chance to live, all the while learning to love myself again in the process. If my story mirrors your life, know that there is help available for you.

Praise Be To The Plus Sized Sister

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

Praise Be to the Plus-Sized Sister is a semi-autobiographical tale of seven women from the San Francisco Bay Area who are connected to each other by six-degrees-of-separation. Seeking redemption from heartbreak, infidelity, poor choices, rejection, self-sabotage, low self-esteem, and emotional and physical abuse, Natasha, Zinnia, Israel, Addison, Celeste, Lila, and Liberty endure the social and psychological pressures of being full-figured black women in a thin obsessed society. With wit, intelligence, glamour and style, and a twofold portion of sass, these soulful sisters possess faith in the midst of the storm, hope when tomorrow is not promised, and strength of character when giving up seems easier than doing the right thing. Praise Be to the Plus-Sized Sister is made up of six stories of redemption: Out of the Mind of Israel Ming, Daddy´s Girls, The Vibrator Virgin, Count it all joy, Saving Sister Jared, and Forgiving Liberty. Beautifully flawed, audaciously determined, and at times downright hilarious, Praise Be to the Plus-Sized Sister represents a new voice, an underrepresented story about the struggle of a unique minority group that has been misunderstood for a long time. Written in the rich and colorful language of the African American experience, by no means is this book tame. It deals with real issues women endure in modern day society, paying special attention to plus-sized African American females who confront prejudice and discrimination on three fronts: race, gender, and size. With messages of hope, self-acceptance, and second chances, Kamane’ Malvo Marshall encourages her readers to keep the faith no matter what.

BOOK EXCERPT:

In Citizens Plus, Alan Cairns unravels the historical record to clarify the current impasse in negotiations between Aboriginal peoples and the state. He considers the assimilationist policy assumptions of the imperial era, examines more recent government initiatives, and analyzes the emergence of the nation-to-nation paradigm given massive support by the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples. We are battered by contending visions, he argues - a revised assimilation policy that finds its support in the Canadian Alliance Party is countered by the nation-to-nation vision, which frames our future as coexisting solitudes. Citizens Plus stakes out a middle ground with its support for constitutional and institutional arrangements which will simultaneously recognize Aboriginal difference and reinforce a solidarity which binds us together in common citizenship. Selected as a BC Book for Everybody
