A review of Conquer CyberOverload

Image
If you're anything like me, you are probably way to busy with technogoodies in your life. I know I am...

I had to put down my Android to write this.

My review of an excellent book to help you is enclosed below.

Comments welcome and Happy Friday!

Conquer CyberOverload: Get More Done, Boost Your Creativity, and Reduce Stress By Joanne Cantor 108 pages, $12.95 ISBN-13: 978-0984256808 Non-fiction Review by Steven King, MBA, MEd
Perhaps my tardiness in writing this review will affirm I suffer from cyber-addiction—or at the very least—cyber-overload.  Earlier today, I read on my LinkedIn feed that FaceBook would probably unveil a new app for the iPad.  This seemed like good news since I regularly check my FaceBook via my desktop computer, laptop, iPad, and Android.  I agreed to write a review for Dr. Joanne Cantor a few years ago…once I received the book, I read it from cover to cover and then promptly placed the desire to write the review considerably down my list of priorities. …

Review of Rumors of God

I love reading books about restoring a proper relationship with God.  The following review provides this very motif - if you think a good life with God is just a rumor, read this book...I am sure you will be surprised.

Rumors of God: Experience the Kind of Faith You´ve Only Heard About [Paperback] By Darren Whitehead and Jon Tyson 208 pages, $15.99 ISBN-13: 978-1595553638 Non-fiction Review by Steven King, MBA, MEd
Given the angst which seems to pervade our world, it is feared by many that the best days of the church are behind Christendom.  To defeat this negativity, Darren Whitehead and Jon Tyson have written Rumors of God.
This Prayer of Jabezesque book stakes its foundations in a prayer offered by Habbakuk, one of the twelve Minor Prophets.  In Habbakuk 3:2 we read: Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Renew them in our day In our time make them known; In wrath remember mercy. Whitehead and Tyson have written Rumors of…

Review of Unbroken

Image
Every once in awhile, even an admitted bibliophile will read a book that makes you pause and say, "Wow." Such a book you read gently, maybe only allowing yourself a few pages at a time so you will not finish it too quickly. Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand is just such a book.

If you've read, or seen, Seabiscuit you are familiar with her writing.  Until you have read Unbroken, you will not understand the power of her writing.

Life's foibles will not seem to matter after you have read this incredible journey.

As always--feel free to leave comments.

Review by Steven King, MBA, MEd
In 1936, Adolf Hitler had hoped that the Berlin Olympic Games would prove German superiority to the spectators of the world. Little did he know that track legend Jesse Owens, an African American superstar, would break eleven world records a…

Review of The Stemming Principle

Image
The Stemming Principle George J. Mardo Kit-Torb Publishing Co ISBN:  978-0-9815555-2-2 241 Pages (Includes front and back matter)
It is my pleasure to recommend another book by author George Mardo—The  Stemming Principle. Anyone reading his books will be immediately aware that George Mardo champions everything to do with family—and particularly the joy which erupts from life simply lived with other family.  His writings breathe fresh life into those moments which are ill afforded much consideration.  Having come to expect a great interplay about family in Mardo’s works, The Stemming Principle does not disappoint. The depth Mardo goes to make his characters brim with life is exceptional.  True dialogue is hard to come by in some many works of fiction – Mardo is to be commended for his effort.  Mardo does not merely spin an idle tale with this work, he also dons the philosopher’s hat to discuss the ideology behind The Stemming Principle.  Simply stated, all actions stem from a substanc…
