Featured Book - The Dot on the Left:  Life Lessons on Moving from Below Average to Ahead of the Curve by Dave Swanson

thedotontheleftmed.jpg"The Commandant showed the demographics of the Prepster class by SAT scores...All I could do was lower my head in shame as the curve was ruined by one dot on the lower left side."

We all have dreams. Too often, those dreams seem out of reach to us for so long that we lose hope that we will ever achieve them. Fortunately, there are three key steps that anybody can take to making their dreams a reality.

In this book, Dave Swanson details how he used these simple principles (who wrestles goats anyway?) to overcome staggering odds and graduate from the United States Military Academy Preparatory School. Despite being an academic laughing stock and having a rudimentary understanding of math, Dave beat the odds and earned an appointment to West Point. Through Dave's inspiring story, you will stop and consider all those dreams that you have long put on the shelf and then make a plan to go after them as if your life depends on it.




Featured Book - Understanding the Patterns of Your Life:  Take Charge of Your Destiny by George Pan Kouloukis

understandingthepatternsofyourlife.jpgThe book is an astonishing discovery! The moment you’ve finished reading it, you’ll be able to learn whether the years just ahead are good or bad for you – and how long this season will last! You can act so accordingly. If you find that a storm is on the horizon, you’ll take shelter in time; if you find that sunny days loom ahead, you’ll take advantage of it before the opportunity passes. In short, you’ll be able to take crucial decisions regarding your career, marriage, family, relationships, and all other life’s issues.

So, the book radically transforms the way we all live today. You will see among other things, why you mustn’t be seized by despair and pessimism when you find you are in a bad season of your life –fearing that this season will never end. Or, why you can dare when you find you are in a good season – fate is with you. Also, you’ll see that when you find you are in a good season of your life, you mustn’t behave as if you assume that this season will never end. On the contrary, you have to take in time the necessary measures to face successfully the problems that may occur in the bad season that will follow.

Also, you’ll learn from this book that you must not blame yourself –and have not any remorse– for the fact that a bad season came in your life. You’ll realize that you haven’t made any mistake to cause the arrival of this season, and you couldn’t have done anything for avoiding this; the bad season would have inevitably arrived in any case. And yes: you’ll see, among the lots of advantages this book offers, that you can entrust an employee or colleague with the solution of a difficult problem –or a politician to govern your country, or even a coach of a basketball team– only if you know they are in a good season of their life, operating so from a position of strength.

You’ll also see that the biographies of 22 famous people cited in the book (from Beethoven and Napoleon to Picasso and Jackie Kennedy) are really super-interesting. You’ll be amazed to learn, for example, why Napoleon the Great wouldn’t have attacked in 1815 the English and Germans in Waterloo – where he suffered total destruction that lead him to death – if he knew the theory of this book. Things may have so taken another course for him, and a new good season, a glorious one again, may have later started for Napoleon.

Also, you’ll see that the discovery cited in this book can also help you to foresee the life evolution of the other people – of your friends and relatives, of famous people (artists, singers, actors, and the likes), or even of the politicians that govern you. You can predict, for example, how long the leader of your country will stay in power after his election, or for how long a famous singer will continue his successful career. All depends on the season – good or bad – these persons are at a given moment, as explained in detail in the book.

Finally, the discovery revealed in the book will radically change in the future the mentality and character of all people. People will become more philosophized, realists, and peaceful –they will know that a good season doesn’t last forever, on the contrary a bad season awaits; it hasn’t any meaning, therefore, being quarrelsome and aggressive. On the contrary, the Man will become tolerant and merciful, and have more understanding towards the others. Superficiality and imprudence, even if they don’t disappear completely, will drastically be reduced.

The author George Pan Kouloukis is an attorney-at-law, a lawyer barrister. He is a Greek citizen, born and brought up in Greece, and he is living in Greece. His mother tongue is also Greek; English is his second language. Now retired, he was a member of the Athens Bar Association of Greece and he had provided legal services to the Ionian Bank of Greece, the Greek Electric Railways Company, and other corporations. He is married with two daughters and three grandchildren.


Featured Book - Chanting the Feminine Down:  A Psychological, Religious and Historical Novel by James C. McCullagh with Roy McCullagh

chantingthefemininedown.jpgChanting the Feminine Down is at heart the painful journey of Colette, a young woman who struggles to come to grips with her Catholicism, her psychology and her soul. Vast in scope and coverage, the novel is a journey through history, mythology and time with the female protagonist searching for shards of the feminine in the Christian tradition while wrestling with the shadow of her own demons. Colette’s travels, musings and reflections take her from the present day to the various Catholic Church councils, making side trips with Boccaccio and the Renaissance crowd.

While Chanting is a religious and psychological novel, the bedrock of the narrative is personal and interior, as is reflected in the dozens of dreams experienced by the heroine which serve as a counterpoint to and a mirror of her bouts with Christian doctrine. Jungian psychology adds meaning and perspective both to her history and to events from the far past.

Chanting is also a feminist novel, not only because of the persona of the protagonist, but because she embraces heroic feminists throughout the ages who have stood up to patriarchy and the church. But for Colette, where will this embrace lead?
