Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Secret Honor by W. E. B. Griffin


Here is another author who has always kept my interest. I particularly liked his series on Philadelphia. I am familiar with the setting and recognize many of the situations. His military series could be written from a template due to their similarity of style. Since I enjoy the books apparently that doesn’t bother me. This story takes place primarily in Argentina during WWII. The OSS, the SS and the good old USA are all represented. Griffin does a good job of showing that there are many shades of gray. There are coal black SS officers and practically white German officers. I think it is important to consider in today’s world of anger and jihad that those who make the most ugly noise are not always representative of their religion or ethnicity. It is too easy to vilify and stereotype when fear and anger run rampant. Griffin makes it clear in his stories that the “wrong” side of a conflict can have good people overwhelmed by circumstances. Once again, a good story and I recommend reading it.

yoga and meditation said...

What you want to start doing is to practice Yoga and Meditation. These are basic principals that make our life better, and also, there are many different benefits that come from practicing yoga and meditation, for example, a person who is really into yoga and meditation is going to be able to control their wrath in cases in which everything seems to be going out of control. Also, and I already mentioned this, a person who really knows their way around yoga and meditation lives happier, a person that know these practices will learn to be optimistic, to appreciate nature, and on top of it all, to manage stress, which is one of the worst diseases of our world.
