Why Historical Fictions Are the Best Books for Young Adults

The ‘best books for young adults’ are historical fiction and here are eleven benefits for you as a young adult, or your parents, to encourage you to read historical fiction.

Statistics show that the young human brain has a natural ability to absorb new information as part of its developmental growth.

As we age the speed at which we learn slows down. While you are young is a good time to encourage the development of the following qualities:

1) KNOWLEDGE – It will have obvious benefits for you as you learn to retain more knowledge and start life with a good grasp of dates and periods of the past.

2) IMAGINATION – As you sense reality in the past, your imagination will grow.

3) APPRECIATION – You will learn an appreciation of the past which will spill into the present

4) RESPECT – You will learn a new respect for the passage of time and will learn to respect the future

5) WISDOM – You will grow wiser as you witness the hypothetical thinking (or not) from the past. Learning from past mistakes will take on a greater meaning for you

6) ENGAGING – You will learn that history is engaging. Characters from the past weave an

When You Need To Changes Your Lifestyle

The “Gene Therapy Plan: Taking Control of Your Genetic Destiny with Diet and Lifestyle” by Dr. Michael L. Gaynor, M.D., is an excellent book that suggests not only how to stay healthy but what alternate plans to consider when you are sick and are not responding to your prescribed treatment.

The introduction to his book is written by Dr. Oz who has sent many of his patients to Dr. Gaynor for treatment as has many other physicians when their treatment plan is not working.

Dr. Gaynor, takes an integrative approach to medicine and offers very good advice on foods, drinks and natural substances to take advantage of to remain healthy, such as olive oil, coconut milk and oils, green tea, chamomile tea, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, juicing, etc.

But his plan goes far beyond eating foods that are healthy but seeks to harness the power hidden in foods to change our genetic predisposition for disease. In this approach Dr. Gaynor draws heavily on a branch of study known as ecogenetics.

Dr. Gaynor, discusses in terms we can understands how ecogenetic food changes our genetic blueprint and provides scientific data to support alternative therapies and age-old practices, The key approach is to use identified nutrients to

Books Are Children’s Best Friend! – Choosing Children’s Book Tips

Women say, “Diamonds are the girl’s best friend”. But, for children, books are children’s best friend! Just like my niece who is a book freak. She likes reading so much. Book store is like a heaven for her. I think that’s because we (especially me) started to introduce her to books when she was only 5 months. What I did at that time was reading her a book with great colors and big picture and taught her to turn the pages one by one. I didn’t even care whether she understood the content or not.

Then, when she was older enough “to read” (I mean see) the books by herself, I begun to introduce her to book store. She liked it very much and this ritual became her new habit. Whenever she saw that we had time to take her to the book store, she begged us to go to the book store to buy new books for her book shelves.

Well, it needed a lot of money of course, but it’s all paid when I see my niece now. She grows into a curious and intelligent girl who likes reading a lot. She can

How To Live Life Fully According From Book

Can you even imagine what it must have been like to be a responder to the Columbine shooting? How could anyone move past the horror and sadness of such an event, and go on to continue to do her job through numerous other tragic situations, much less to live a happy and fulfilling life?

Autumn Shields has just about seen it all in her former career as a victim advocate. She has seen tears and pain and senseless violence, but she has also seen the human spirit rise above it all and continue on. Now, in her new book Living Your Life Alive, she shares with us how sometimes it takes tragedy to make us wake up and live the lives intended for us. Hopefully, however, you won’t need to experience a tragedy to have a wakeup call; instead, as Autumn explains, you just have to listen to your “inner nudges.”

Sadly, too many of us don’t listen to our nudges. We allow negativity and self-doubt to hold us back in life. Autumn illustrates this point by explaining how monkeys are captured on Borneo:

“On Borneo, the natives have a unique way of catching monkeys. They use a hollowed out coconut and some

When You Need To Read A Book

There are a number of books that accumulatively have changed my life, together with life’s experiences. Sometimes a particular book will provide an answer or training in a specific area; sometimes it is an on-going growth sequence. There are times when a suitable book can be a great inspiration or comfort and help to drive you forward. Here you will find a brief description of books that have had an impact on me, are they books you have read or would they help you?

Years ago there were a few books that were instrumental in my sales success:

“The One Minute Sales Person” by Spencer Johnson and Larry Wilson, they also wrote “The One Minute Manager” Their message was – Give people what they want and you will get what you want.

Tom Hopkins, “How to Master the Art of Selling”, and “The Official Guide to Success” was also a favourite. At the age of 21 he made his first million in sales – I can’t say I achieved that but it is an informative book!

A book perhaps everyone could benefit from is “How to Get Your Point Across in 30 seconds or Less, by Milo Frank.

On a personal development level, “Awaken the

Steel Fetters by Tina Fernandez

Miss Afia Rana is a beautiful young lady who has landed her dream job. She’s an airline stewardess flying for India’s Southern Airlines. She makes frequent trips to Bombay, Mumbai, and the famous Juhu Beach area surrounded by the Arabian Sea. Exotic and romantic, Afia also attracts the man of her dreams and he’s the head of a Steel empire. His business takes him across the middle east as a frequent flyer. Afia is flying high and loving her life, until her baby arrives and the years slowly turn to Steel Fetters as she challenges the “false morality of the 1980’s.” Her endless love for her child gives her the strength to rise again and again against a difficult backdrop and an unfair situation that life has handed her.

The author, Tina Fernandez, does a good job with this personal experience story. It describes the plight of countless women during this era. While every country had its own way of chastisement for these brave single mothers there is little wonder why abortion became so popular. There were no easy choices and no easy answers for the women who faced the dilemma, especially in India.

Before the baby, Afia’s father held a
