Meditations for the First 30 Days: How not to become roadkill on the highway to recovery

The Game Changers: How To Date Men in the 21st Century

Dating in the 21st Century is challenging even though there are 7 billion people in the world. So why is it so difficult to just find one. Women have lost control of the dating game. Why? We started being the boss of men and with that came suppression of the most important Power we possess, our femininity. Many women have turned into men, which started the age of Emotional Competition, not only do we compete for jobs, we also compete for power in our relationships. Women have truly suffered long enough and it’s time for you to take back control but not in the way you might think. We don’t have to compete to get what we want, instead you need to reconnect with who you are and what you want; and use what is inherent in most women, your femininity. These 12 Game Changers help you figure out what you’ve been missing so you can create the relationship you want and deserve.

Uncorked: My year in Provence studying Petanque, discovering Chagall, drinking Pastis, and mangling French

Will a foreigner assigned to work in Provence be able to gain acceptance from his French townsfolk? Find out, as Paul Shore’s evocative story telling, wry wit, and big heart, inspire and entertain you, as he tells the tale of how he did just that. Shore’s unwavering determination to fit into life in a quaint village, despite having smoke repeatedly blown in face, saw him eventually embraced within the local culture — at least by a few of his leery French neighbors. Uncorked celebrates the “uncorking” of a few tightly held traditions that are near and dear to hearts of the locals of the Cote d’Azur and Provence – being taught to play petanque (boules) under the clandestine cover of darkness; learning vernissage etiquette; drinking pastis before noon; navigating narrow village roads at top driving speed. Shore also “uncorks” personal awakenings about the value of following roads-less-travelled and making time to smell-the-roses, as we cultivate friendships and traditions. And, through exposure to the life of artist Marc Chagall, Shore reflects on the challenges that all newcomers face to gain acceptance in a foreign land. Shore’s humorous and heart-felt accounts of his year living in Provence will touch and amuse, and evoke fond memories of travel to fascinating places — and they might even trigger reflection on the importance of being afforded new chances in life.

What Would a Muslim Say: Conversations, Questions, and Answers About Islam

“What Would a Muslim Say” showcases everyday people asking real questions and getting real answers about Islamic principles and practices. This book documents my experiences as an interfaith and outreach volunteer. Ever since 2009, I have helped facilitate dialogue with many different people, answering questions about Islam and addressing misconceptions about my faith. I wanted to share those conversations with people who might otherwise not have the ability or opportunity to talk with a Muslim about Islam. What Others Say “Reading “What Would a Muslim Say” felt like taking a journey in the minds and hearts of people and what they feel and think about Islam and Muslims. The questions are honest and reflect the thirst that people have to understand and explore what Islam is about. Ahmed Rashed remained focused in his answers even when it got really tough or emotional. He kept the answers balanced as they were also honest and spoke to the level of the person asking the questions with no judgement and with extreme patience, representing what Islam stands for and what good Muslims are like. A great and diverse read that you would surely enjoy.” – Hoda Elsharkawi, Muslim Chaplain, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The Happiness Game Plan

In a recent survey of millennials, 80% claimed a major life goal was “to get rich,” while 50% stated their desire “to become famous.” But do these factors actually deliver on the promise of a good life? We believe that there is no “quick fix” for a good life. Nurturing your relationships takes energy and commitment, but subjects who were happiest in old age were those who “leaned into relationships with family, with friends, with community.” Yet relationships are not the only aspect of happiness. There are materialistic and non-materialistic dimensions that should be taken care of. Happiness is a project that needs constant effort and attention in order to be achieved. This book puts forward a multi-faceted practical perspective to have a better understanding on how you should work on the happiness project. The first step is to realize that happiness is a “system” composed of several important elements. All these elements need to be in harmony, as Gandhi suggests “happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony”. The main thing is that you shouldn’t go through life being unhappy. You are very much in control of the degree of personal happiness you experience. Once you understand the primary factors that determine happiness, you can quickly put them to work in your life. This requires conscious effort and strong determination on your part. Make this commitment to yourself this very minute. Become a happy person today.
