Boxcar To Boardrooms by Mannie JacksonBoxcar To Boardrooms by Mannie Jackson
Mannie Jackson
Mannie Jackson is President of Boxcar Holdings LLC, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Naismith Memorial Basketball of Fame, Chairman of the Board and owner of the Harlem Globetrotters, and Chairman and a founder of the Executive Leadership Council. After a brief professional basketball career in the National Industrial Basketball League and with the Harlem Globetrotters, Jackson went on to distinguish himself in corporate life as a senior executive with Honeywell Inc, and as one the first African-Americans to serve on multiple (six) Fortune 500 boards of directors. Jackson, a former All-Ten point guard and captain of the University of Illinois basketball team, has two honorary doctorate degrees. He built a career at Honeywell as president of that company’s telecommunication business, which he built as a venture start-up by acquiring seven regionally interconnected companies and sourcing a highly publicized technology agreement with Sweden's LM Ericsson Co. Jackson went on in his career to rescue the Harlem Globetrotters from bankruptcy in 1992, when he became the first African-American to own outright a major sports and entertainment organization. In a short time the organization was revived as a dominant global brand reaching top quartile Q-ratings and accruing fourteen consecutive years of growth at an average annual rate of 14 percent. Mannie Jackson’s inspirational memoir is an odds-beating story that spans his history-making careers in sports and business and chronicles his journey from being born in a rain-soaked railway boxcar to leadership and significance.

Weight Loss Success: How to Lose Weight and Have Fun Doing ItWeight Loss Success: How to Lose Weight and Have Fun Doing It
Joan Marie Verba
A note from the author:
Like you, I have lost weight and gained it back. I have started exercise programs and not stuck to them. But, in 1979, I lost weight and have kept it off since then.
If you also have tried to lead a healthy lifestyle and found your efforts didn’t work in the past, I have good news: I have found that the secret to maintaining a healthy lifestyle is having fun.
Success comes through having fun.
Isn’t that great?
The motto that inspires me is: “Do one thing every day that makes you happy.” Why? Because when you participate in activities that are fun for you, you’ll stick with them. When you find nutritional, healthy foods that you enjoy, you’ll eat them. When you are spending your time on fun activities, you won’t have the time to be stressed (and you’ll avoid emotional eating)!

You Knead Me: 10 Easy Ways To Massage Your Partner's Chest and TummyYou Knead Me: 10 Easy Ways To Massage Your Partner's Chest and Tummy
Yasuko Kawamura
Do you find yourself hunching over, not breathing fully? Does the stress in your life keep your stomach in knots?

If this describes you, you could benefit from chest and tummy massage. When that massage comes from your partner, it gains an added dimension, deepening the bonds of trust and intimacy between you. In You Knead Me: How to massage your partner's chest and tummy, couples learn how to massage each other to improve breathing and digestion, decrease depression and anxiety, and gain other benefits which can include improved communication and a better relationship.

Because these techniques are designed to be practiced anywhere, they are non-sexual and don’t require disrobing. However, when a couple does have privacy, a relaxing massage can lead to other ways of expressing love and sensuality.

While the heart of this book is the series of ten techniques for chest and tummy areas, explained with words, photos, and linked videos, You Knead Me also explores the benefits of learning couples massage and provides tips to enhance the experience. You’ll learn the benefits of massage in general and specifically for these vulnerable areas of the body. You’ll also receive a link to bonus videos with more techniques.

This is the third book in the You Knead Me series by nationally certified licensed massage therapist Yasuko Kawamura. The first two books are You Knead Me: How To Massage Your Partner’s Neck and You Knead Me: How To Massage Your Partner's Feet.

Note: This optimized eBook is easiest to use on an eReader or computer with internet browsing capability. If you are using a device without such capability, please use the provided web addresses to view the videos on another device.

Quexistence: The Quest for the Meaning of Existence: TIME DREAMSQuexistence: The Quest for the Meaning of Existence: TIME DREAMS
Tom Stafford
Time Dreams are dreams, like any other dream. They are dreams about space and Time. They seem real, but so does life.
Dreams are thoughts. You’ve heard it before, “I think, therefore I am.” (Rene’ Descartes). But, the fact is - nobody even knows where thoughts come from.
Most people believe they have free will. They believe they have a choice. They believe they act of their own volition. But, will is not an action. It is only a thought. You cannot will something to happen. You are only free to choose the thoughts in your head. And, no one knows where they come from.
Life is a fantasy. No one knows what Life is or where it came from. No one knows what Time is. No one knows where Man came from or how long he’s been on this planet. No one knows if their actions are truly theirs. No one knows where dreams come from. No one knows what reality is.
Quexistence: The Quest for the Meaning of Existence: TIME DREAMS is a philosophical fantasy of dreams, space, Time, and love. It is the story of one man’s search to find the meaning of his existence. While Angie assembles and decorates the family Christmas tree, Gork shares his story of how he met Angie’s grandmother, Amani.
Gork has been studying prehistoric history at college and goes to California to volunteer at an archaeological site near the Calico Hills. No one knows where Man came from or how long he’s been on this planet. Gork hopes to find some insights on the origin of Man.
He is met at the airport by Charlie, who has lived in the area for many years, and is helping at the site. During the drive across the desert, Gork has his first dream, a dream that takes him to another time, another world. In his dream he sees a girl, the girl of his dreams, Amani.
Gork travels through space and time, compelled to follow his dream. His dreams take him back to a time and place long forgotten. While in reality he discovers an underground cavern that holds the secret to Man’s past. A secret buried in Time.

Ghost Hand (The PSS Chronicles Book 1)Ghost Hand (The PSS Chronicles Book 1)
Ripley Patton
Now a Complete Series to binge read this fall.

Olivia Black has a rare birth defect known as Psyche Sans Soma, or PSS. Instead of a right hand made of flesh and blood, she was born with a hand made of ethereal energy.

How does Olivia handle being the girl with the ghost hand? Well, she's a little bit morbid and a whole lot snarky.

Her mother thinks her obsession with death, black clothing, and the local cemetery is a bid for attention. But when Marcus, the new guy in Olivia's calculus class, stares at her like she's a freak, Olivia doesn't like it. And when her hand goes rogue, doing things she never imagined possible, Olivia finds herself running for her life with Marcus from a group of men bent on taking the power of her hand for their own nefarious purposes.

*GHOST HAND was a semifinalist for The Kindle Book Review 2013 Best Indie Book Awards in the Young Adult category and a 2013 Cybil Award nominee.

‘You work too much,’ said his beautiful actress girlfriend. ‘We hardly see each other any more.’ If only Daniel Tate had listened. Now she’s abandoned him for a glamorous American film star, leaving him with a one-eyed cat and a dirty flat he can’t afford. And there’s no respite at work: Daniel’s only client, 80’s rocker Brian Fey, is losing his court case against his old bandmates. The partners are concerned with his performance, not helping his chances for promotion in a cut-and-thrust contest between him, the office sycophant and his best friend. Winning the case for Brian would make all the difference but that’s not easy when your client is suddenly implicated in a sensational murder.

Worse Than Being AloneWorse Than Being Alone
Patricia Clark
Worse Than Being Alone is a riveting tale involving multiple cons, a vicious murder, romance, betrayal, and escape as it vividly explores just how far all of us are prepared to go to avoid being alone.

Kitty and Roni are building their fledgling investigative agency by following workers' comp cheats. Every PI's dream of catching real criminals seems to be coming true when they begin to suspect one of their targets is engaged in more nefarious activities than just a bogus comp claim. Their cat and mouse game gets twisted when they realize they are the ones being stalked.

A personal and potentially lethal inquiry emerges after Roni's father marries a woman with a checkered past, and they fear he has found his Worse Than Being Alone. When their investigation points to a shady past involving a trail of life insurance payouts and dead husbands, they wonder if Dad has married a Black Widow or an extremely unlucky woman.

As that case boils over, along comes the most talented con artist of them all. After his angry employer hires them to check him out, Kitty and Roni slowly come to realize he has the makings of a master criminal. They uncover numerous identities along with multiple workers' comp claims. Then here are his almost daily trips to the same bank wearing different disguises.

Surprises abound as Kitty and Roni break up a sex slave ring, thwart a bank robbery, nab a shoplifter, and document a Black Widow's treachery. A sudden death leaves them stunned as they second-guess their activities, forcing them to confront a murderer.

AN UNQUIET AMERICANAN UNQUIET AMERICAN
AFN CLARKE
Bestselling author AFN Clarke wrote AN UNQUIET AMERICAN in 2007-2008. The explosive revelations released by the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in December 2014 concerning CIA Black Sites and extreme torture during the Bush Administration, makes this powerful, provocative and eerily prophetic novel an even more incredible “must read” of our times.

Rufus Reed, ex-British Special Forces, is drugged, kidnapped, falsely accused of terrorism and “disappeared” to a secret CIA “Black Site” in Northern Europe. He’s to be broken “by any means possible”. But nothing is quite what it seems, and Reed is no ordinary prisoner. He was trained in counterterrorism and psychological warfare, and as he engages with his captors they develop a growing respect for his intelligence, level headedness and humanity. As doubts about his guilt grow, so does the horrifying possibility that they’re all just pawns in a larger, more insidious game being played out by right wing extremists at the highest levels of the US government, conspiring to ensure “their man” wins the Presidency of the United States. A game that makes not just Reed, but all of them expendable!

But could “their own” really betray them? As they grapple with the unthinkable, the moves and countermoves of competing forces explode onto the world stage. From a small Irish village to the Port of Al-Aqabah, the White House to the Israeli Knesset, the CIA Black Site to top echelons of the Vatican, events escalate at an unnerving pace until a mind-bending twist propels the action to a dramatic and unexpected conclusion.

Drawing on the author’s own experiences in the military and as the son of a British MI6 operative living in different countries, cultures and political systems around the world, this “controversial”, “politically provocative”, “can't put the book down” literary thriller tackles highly controversial issues and disturbing decisions in history from 1948 to the present, the far reaching consequences of which, we are still dealing with today.

About The Author
AFN Clarke, is the bestselling author of Contact as well as The Orange Moon Affair and The Jonas Trust Deception (Thomas Gunn thriller series); Dry Tortugas; Dreams from the Death Age and Armageddon (The Book of Baker Satire Series) and Collisions.

Halle Kaye
Maybe He's Just an Asshole is the insightful, inspirational and HILARIOUS dating guide women have been waiting for. In a world where most of the dating rules seem to have been written from the perspective of the penis, Halle Kaye and Sophie Stone show women how to approach dating from a position of strength and leverage, not from a place of desperation and weakness. Do you wish you had more power/control when it comes to men and dating? Read the book today!

(Oh, and the best part: no rules, games, or bitchiness required.)

IMPORTANT NOTE: if you decide to review this book below, please use the term "ahole" in your review instead of "a**hole" or "asshole" or it might not publish. Thanks!

Finally, please note that this is not intended to be an “anti-man” or “man-hating” book. As one reviewer pointed out, we use the term “asshole” in a playful, snarky, tongue-in-cheek kind of way to refer to men who are a waste of your time. It’s precisely because we believe there are so many wonderful men out there that we want to help you ditch the bad ones fast!
