Sierra--Always and Forever by L.J. Turner--Evolution and growth are different for each of us; destiny having a way of forging its own path. The future lies in the ashes of the past and is brought about by actions taken in the present. One can never be sure where past, present and future connect, but they do connect; making Life the greatest of all adventures.

With the answering of the telephone, the years and worlds separating Julian Holliday and Sierra Wolfe are merged into a reality masked in deceit, lies and the fog of illusion. If Julian and Sierra are to be together, obstacles must be overcome; agendas must be realized, confronted and dealt with and the power of love must be believed and embraced.

Certainties--Poems by Robert Weston--“…I have called this collection Certainties and on the first page I quote Werner Heisenberg’s attempt to articulate the fundamental paradox of quantum ‘uncertainty’: that knowledge of location (position) and momentum (direction) are mutually exclusive at least at the quantum level.

I have appropriated this concept to my own experience: If I know where I am, I can never be certain where I am going. And the corollary: If I know where I am going, I cannot be certain where I am. My poems are exceptions. They are certainties because they are ‘fixed’ moments of experience or reflection, identified in words that provide both locale and direction, at least in hindsight.”

—From the Preface of Certainties

Touching the Heart of Japan by Eddie Rouge--So few countries are like Japan. It is a place where everyone is good at their jobs and where crime is low. It is a place where ancient traditions blend with modern technology and modern lifestyles. Japan continually adapts to the changing of the times but her heart still retains her unique identity. There is a cultural universe inside every Japanese individual that is both logical and mysterious. Imagine a place where communication revolves around silence and ambiguity and you begin to understand something of the Japanese heart.

This book explores those areas as well as what common everyday life is like. It presents insights into history, culture, and current trends, as well as personal experiences by the author. A concise analysis of lifestyles is portrayed of the children, adults and senior citizens. Touching the Heart of Japan presents all these things and more.

Rainbow of Hope by Dr. A.J. Kuzhikkannamthadathil-- All people experience pain and suffering, illness and death, depression and anxiety, fear and worry, hunger and thirst, failures and successes, and love and happiness. Why don’t human beings work together to alleviate the sufferings and pain of each other rather than fight and kill one another? In addressing this issue, the author has looked at India as an example. India is a microcosm of the world with its multiple languages, races, colors and caste system. Why hasn’t a country like India progressed as a developed nation with its vast resources, including the human resource? There are no easy answers to this question. The author explores some facets of Indian life and looks at alternative approaches.

The book attempts to challenge people to grow and develop. It is an invitation to objectivity and verifiable truths that are accessible to all, easy to understand and put into practice. To that end, The Rainbow of Hope opens up a huge reservoir for action. Ultimately, it is action that will transport the nation of India into a just, progressive and developed society in the 21st century where all citizens can live up to their potential without discrimination.

Healthspan by O. Jack Woodard, Jr., M.D. and Genevieve Johnson Woodard skillfully interweaves significant scientific breakthroughs in nutrition, psychoneuroimmunology, and energy medicine with historical perspectives on health, disease, and healing, astonishing case histories, one in the patient’s own words, and stories of the results of applying Healthspan principles in the Woodard’s own lives during times of both triumph and tragedy.

The essential uniqueness of Healthspan is that it is truly holistic and, at the same time, eminently practical. It describes the approach to the 100-year healthspan on all levels of life: physical, mental, and spiritual. (Nothing less will work.) The genius of the book is that it tells how to do all this while confronted by the realities of our time-urgent, noisy, overscheduled, overstressed, and frantic culture. Then comes the crowning achievement: practical instructions on how to have fun while claiming a fabulous birthright! 5 ½ x 8 ½, 362 pages, ISBN 0-9671247-0-0, LC: 99-95248, a quality paperback edition, bibliography, index, 2 illustrations, $19.95
