I Am Change, a book of prose and poetry by David Best, is a pleasure to read. It combines warm, personal experiences and compelling true life drama with spiritual guidance toward acceptance of everything that this universe has to offer us, without labeling it as bad or good. Its tone is welcoming and charismatic.

It has a quality of modesty which encourages the reader to consider the ideas presented by someone who does not exalt himself but simply and eloquently tells what he has experienced and learned. The author's poetry has a bright, captivating quality, and yet at the same time it expresses some powerful truths about birth, life, death and the essential nature of all three as forms of change. The way the poetry is interspersed with the prose of I Am Change is illuminating. The two different forms of communication enhance and intensify each other.

Teaching Algebra to Chickens by Don Peckham--Have you ever stopped to wonder how the universe can go on forever? How once upon a time there was nothingness and yet everything that now exists was somehow created out of that nothingness? Have you ever wondered if there’s a master designer – God, the universe, the Force, or whatever you’d like to call it – that made everything? And if this ultimate being made everything, then who made him?

And then there’s the smaller stuff: How does our brain work? Why are we so different from animals – or are we? Do gender differences really matter? Why is there war? What will happen to humans if we destroy our environment? What happens when we die?

The fact is that life is filled with endless unanswerable questions, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t ask them. Join author Don Peckham as he ponders those things in life that defy explanation and the things that seem beyond our comprehension. While we think we may know the answers, Don will challenge you to look past those beliefs that you readily accept and question their validity. We may not be able to answer every question that life raises any better than a chicken can learn algebra, but we can open our awareness to a place of wonder and respect for the unanswerable.

Veterans in the Mist by Jerry W. Whiting--They're a proud group of Americans, but they don't draw attention to themselves. They meet monthly to share memories, friendship and to reminisce. They're from all over our country and beyond, and from all walks of life. Unless we look closely and engage them, we won't understand what they've done for our country and for the world at a critical time…when we needed them most. Even today, as the most senior of our citizens, this group of World War II veterans, from all branches of service, represents the best of what America has to offer. Collectively, with affection, admiration and respect, we call them "The Third Thursday Lunch Bunch." Here are a few of their stories, glimpses into their war. time experiences, but a brief portion of their lives, which have profoundly impacted them, us and the world. Well done, men. Carry on.

Einstein: An Event in the Fourth Dimension by Louis Guise--Everyone has the intellectual capacity to understand Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity.

The principle of relativity is based upon the self-evident truth of matter in constant motion throughout the universe. His theory hinges upon the term “event.”

While Mother Nature and Father Time play an active role in events, the outcome of a human event may change by “common sense” and “reason.”

Experience gained from the day’s event will always be there, which is good. But, a theory such as Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity, opens our eyes before the event happens, which is better.

The civilized world, especially the growing child should know and understand the structure of an event appearing as a theory.

The Fourth Dimension should be learned as early as possible.

This vital, new subject should be added to the school’s curriculum for the sole purpose of teaching students to think before they act.

Incoming Rounds by Hamel Morris is a minimalistic but powerful record of one young man’s experience in the Hell of Viet Nam. For any reader who has never been in combat, this account is shocking, poignant, and enlightening.

The juxtaposition of the ordinary—receiving mail, getting food rations after two days, being able to bathe in a river after days of sweating on the trails of the jungle—with the deeply horrific is like a jolt of lightning to any complacency.

Within one day’s entry, the writer may describe anything from building a “hooch” out of his poncho to keep out the monsoon rains, to the brutal interrogation of a VC member by a Lieutenant, from a sandbag-making detail to the massacre of villagers in retribution for a mortar attack, atrocities he despises but is powerless to prevent....

Creating Your New Lifestyle by Hamiltion C. Erridge—“Too many medical professionals still don't understand that losing weight and keeping it off has less to do with the food we eat, and more to do with reasons behind the eating and the need to change behaviors. As a result, I wrote this book to allow anyone on any diet the opportunity to gain control, identify and understand their own issues, create new skills and behaviors, and learn to keep the weight off for the rest of their life.

I have no doubt this book will bring you inspiration, laughter, and the thoughts and knowledge to truly create a new and healthy lifestyle.

Medicine Wheel Stories—As a Native American “free thinker” in the year 2001, this book is my own interpretation of the Medicine Wheel and its use of symbolism. Symbols access the imaginary realm of our subconscious minds. They help us connect spiritually to the mystery, the center, the 5th part of our four section circle.

My own experience of the thought process of Native Americans, generally speaking, has often been to note a natural tendency toward artistic and spiritual right brain function.

There are some Native Americans on reservations today whose families have maintained in the traditional culture, and I want to give due recognition to these ones. But, many Native Americans today on reservations, and in urban areas alike, are out of touch with traditional values.

Because there has been a lack of knowledge and of experience in age-old customs and ceremonies, one may think the old values, the old ways are being lost. I have found that the opposite is true. The values are still strong for anyone ready to receive them into their life.

According to my experience as an urban Indian, this is my own interpretation of some underlying values and contributions of my Native American heritage.
