    Book Review: “Resilient Walker” by Dr. Shree Walker

    Book Review: “Resilient Walker” by Dr. Shree Walker

    My reading schedule is pretty full and I had no plans to allow Dr. Shree Walker’s memoir to jump the line ahead of others I needed to read for research. A few unlikely things occurred that put her book in the front of the rotation and I’m glad they did.

    The Louki Within

    The Louki Within

    Choosing this book was not my rational decision. It was an impulse one. The news announced that a certain Mr. Patrick Modiano had won the Nobel Prize in literature and as a vain enthusiast of all literary things, I just had to buy the book.

    Does "The Secret" really work?

    Does "The Secret" really work?

    As society continues to evolve so does the way we see ourselves and others. It always seems like that person you've been stalking on Instagram has a much better life than you do. I used to always be so upset because good things were happening to other people and nothing good ever seemed to happen to me. This constant feeling of not being good enough can lead you down a very negative and dark path, I will be the first one to hold my hands up and say I used to be one of those people.

    'The Mind Detective'

    One of six children, Shirley Yanez was born and raised in poverty on a council estate in Leicester in the 1950s. She received no formal education, and would later discover that she was dyslexic. She would go on to use her innate confidence, unbreakable self-belief, and indestructible drive to escape her difficult start in life, finally reaching the top of the money and power mountain within the hyper-capitalist world of Wall Street and the City of London finance.

    Living the Dream

    Living the Dream

    Living the Dream is not another book about accumulating great material wealth and living a luxurious life by using knowledge of the fundamental law of attraction (simply put, you attract what you focus on). This book is written to awaken you to the fact that you’re dreaming now. Yes, you. Your life is a dream, an illusion in your mind, streaming across consciousness on autopilot without the power of individual direction from your point of observation. The pilot is asleep. Living the Dream is about finding your true being within the dream and deliberately, with knowledge and understanding, taking charge of and directing this mental process we call life. In formal education we were told early on that life is a dream. At that time we didn't have the faculties of consciousness to fully understand how true those words are. But, it's a new day! We're entering an age of great light and mass adoption of truth that has escaped us in times past.

    Inspirational Books to Add to Your Collection

    I am an incredible fan of the written word. Since a child, I would indulge in different worlds through the covers of some of my favorite books. I would lock myself in my room until finished; sometimes going an entire day without food or sleep. While I cannot devote as much time to reading as when I was a kid, I still love adding to my reading list each month. While I don't discriminate, I do go through phases of what type of books I like reading.

    The 10 Best Motivational Books for Students

    The 10 Best Motivational Books for Students

    "The difference between try and triumph is a little umph." But sometimes, that last bit of motivation can be hard to come by. Furthermore, once you find that drive, it can be difficult to figure out how to stay motivated. Navigating the academic waters of college can be tricky. You’re in this weird kind of limbo where you are still a student, but also an adult, and now have to carry the responsibilities of both. You’re going to learn a lot about yourself, life, and others in the next few years, but sometimes you may feel just a tiny bit stressed. You may want some advice about different things along the way. That is how this list has come to be. I have gathered some of the best motivational books for students out there, each with a specific area in mind, to help guide you through whatever new problem school or life may be throwing your way.
