SHORT BRIEF OF RICHARD SANDAERS AND HIS NOVEL "DEAD LINE"

Very happy day to you,


Today, I write to share with you the back screen of the AUTHOR, who wrote the recent thriller novel, DEAD LINE, whom I find him unique and inspiring. Why I say so?


Perhaps some of you may know him and he is none other than Mr. Richard Sanders. He has taken courage to share his dark side openly through his novel. This made him unique as he did not let his old bondage hold him back, yet this forward looking successful author did a u turn to live life afresh as a green leaf. He often speak to young journalists and try to use himself as an example for inspiration - a guy who spent time in jail, rehab and a psych ward on to become a successful editor at Time Inc. and managed to stay sane and alive. Now he has tried to reflect those experiences in this book. As such, I am certain that you will agree with me that this will make this novel a good read, with excitement and inspiration.


For a quick taste, PLEASE CLICK AT THE TITLE OF THIS ARTICLE.


Here, I must highlight another good lesson can be learnt here. Never let the bondage hold him back, but to forgive and forget about. What is more important is to look forward to make things better for yourself and others. No one can change the history but to learn from it. Otherwise it is a real waste.


His other quality that set him apart from other people is he dares to open up to others, one of the successful ingredient.


His book is part of the Quinn MeShane series, dubbed by Kindle Nation as "Sam Spade meets Kinky Friedman." and it's available at Amazon and/or the Kindle store, Smashwords, the iPad's iBooks store, Barnes & Noble, Sony, Goodreads, Google, Kobo and Diesel.


To make thing easy, I even append the book at the top left side of this article at a click of your finger. Hope you can get hold of the book and revert the feedback to us after you have read it for the benefit of other readers. Thank you for your participation.


Stay tuned and I will bring more inspiring books to lift you up, as the name of this blog suggested.

Pictures from the peak of perfection: The man who climbs mountains in search of the ultimate photo

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 6:24 PM on 6th May 2011

For most of us, hauling yourself up some of the Earth's highest peaks would be enough to keep us occupied.
But for one mountaineer, the exertion he goes through to scale the heights is just a means to capturing some of the most stunning images of nature's peaks.
Robert Bosch, 57, has climbed to the summit of Everest, the icy Alps of Europe and even to the frozen desert wastes of Antarctica in pursuit of adventure and the perfect snap.

Working with some of the greats of European mountaineering, Mr Bosch's vertigo-inducing photography portrays the loneliness and grit that all climbers need to conquer the world's highest peaks.
He said: 'Climbing Mount Everest is relatively straightforward for an experienced climber.
'I had previously attempted to ascend the notoriously difficult west ridge route but that had defeated me.
'So in 2001 I succeeded climbing the north face, but I must tell you that to climb Everest up the commercially popular route is easy.
'Everyone travels to the top and thinks they can write a book about it, but the majority of these people are not mountaineers, they are relying ont he incredible work of the Sherpas of Nepal.'

Photographing the greats of the climbing world, including 34-year-old Ueli Steck, Mr Bosch has witnessed the skill needed in perilous climbs.
He said: 'Ueli is a wonderful climber, an exceptional mountaineer, we climb a lot together looking for that perfect shot that sums up the strength and balance and fitness that climbers need.
'His free climbing abilities are what most impresses me, he is a good friend and it is a pleasure to work with him.'
As an experienced climber, Mr Bosch - who lives near Zurich in Switzerland - has scaled more than 100 different peaks across the world.
He considered Cerro Torre in Argentina one of the hardest ascents, despite its relative unknown status.

Mr Bosch said: 'My passion was born when my parents would take me to visit the Alps when I was a boy.
'My main concern was climbing, but another interest of mine had always been photography and in my mid twenties I began to take pictures during my ascents and by the time I was 30 I had launched my own business concentrating on my climbing.
'I was working in the Swiss Alps on my photography, hanging from a rope and using my crampons digging into the rock face to balance myself.
'Unfortunately I had a momentary lapse of balance and I turned 180 degress upside down to face a sheer 3,000ft drop.
'My heart skipped and luckily for me my rope held and I managed to right myself, but that incident haunts me every day because I came so close to falling down head first.'

NEW RECORD FOR LIMBLESS SWIMMER

A very great day to all of you,


This eye catching news, Limbless swimmer set to cross continents, arrested my immediate attention. Amazing and very inspiring, Right? Many good lessons can be learnt here.




He is none other than Philippe Croizon, 43, who lost both his arms and legs in an electrical accident 17 years ago. However, this did not stop him from turning it into opportunity. He did not regard it as a barrier, but set to swim across 5 continents in waters marked by sharks, poisonous jellyfish, icy currents and cargo ships. He has gained his fame by swimming across the English Channel with no arms or legs, and aimed for more big challenges to overcome. Marvelous and he is really the man who inspire us to achieve a new record, no matter what happened. A true WINNER of our choice. He had proven a point that you too can stay in control of yourself, no matter what condition you are in, so long as you don't give up your hope and stay alive.


This "I'm possible" man sent a clear and loud message of hope and of life to all his fellow companions in misfortunate after his recent success. He really rocks the world and gives hope to everyone. Big thanks to him for his care and concern for the world.


This forward looking man, who lost his limbs after he was hit by a 20,000-volt charge in 1994 as he tried to dismantle a television antenna from a house roof, does not stop there. But he intends to set another new record, has begun preparing one year ahead to swim hundreds of kilometers in waters connecting five continents from May to August. With this new challenge, he and the rest intend to accomplish an act of peace, of solidarity, of sharing with all skin colours, cultures and back-grounds combined, which is timely. This reminds me of the saying that life is just like cycling, you need to peddle to keep it moving. So, spread the news and give him whatsoever support you could. Thanks.


In the first round, he will swim some 20km in the Pacific Ocean separating Wutung, Papua New Guinea to another coastal village in Indonesia, accompanied by long-distance swimming champion Arnaud Chassery, 34.


Thereafter, both will then swim 25km in June in the Gulf of Aqaba, from Jordan to the Eqyptian coast. Followed by thier continent-hopping from Africa to Europe via the Straits of Gibraltar, rubbing shoulders with cargo ships that sail through this checkpoint a month after.


If all goes well as planned, the most spectacular event will be held at the end of August in the Bering Strait separating Russia with the Asian continent - a round trip of many kilometers in waters close to zero degrees celsius. Wow! Such long and challenging tasks await these two men to accomplish.


Trust the above is another proven evidence that support the truth that you can achieve what you conceive so long as you do not give up. Success is surely and slowly on the way.


Here, we as usual will put them in our prayers list and look forward for another great record to be set, but also the message will be widely spread to the world at large.

Here, we urge you to condition yourself with this good and invaluable information to make you strong and live the life you wanted. As such, we all need to stay inspired at all times to overcome the new challenges we are going to face through our daily lives. I must admit that I had benefited very much through writing and sharing such stories with you.


Please email me such kind of stories of yours if you like to share with others whom will get inspired by you. I strongly believe everyone has such a story to tell because we chose to be a Winner and control our lives. In this connection, I like to reaffirm that I need some like minded people to work together to make us stronger.

We can safely sum this up as follow:-

So, if you find yourself in a situation that is not bringing you joy, remember, there is a way out. By discovering and rewiring the underlying limiting beliefs, you can free yourself from pain and change your whole world.






To our success,

OPRAH WINFREY AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE SERVANT LEADERSHIP

OPRAH WINFREY AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE SERVANT LEADERSHIP

Very happy day, Everyone.


The news recently that Hollywood's A-list celebrities bid a star-studded farewell to Oprah Winfrey in a double-taping of her talk show that included messages from her fans around the world is worthy of praise and commendation. Have you ever ponder that the lady, without holding any key position, yet command such a high respect from all walk of lives? If you do, then what is her success recipe?


Today, I like to say it was mainly attributable from her servant leadership style. Some of you may wonder why I say so. She has a deep true passion to serve people with unconditional love. She showed love without looking at colour because love is colourless, well recorded in most, if not all true religious teaching.

Oprah is a role model for what empowering people is all about. Oprah has never stopped showing people how big they can be. All her programs are about empowering people and about seeing life from a bigger picture. She teaches people how huge their own potential is and how great they can become, by taking the steps and moving ahead with their own lives. In that sense she is a true leader, she is a great example of how Leadership works. She is a role model for what servant leadership is all about.


No surprise to me that she was recently voted as the world the Number 1 most influencial lady. I can feel the love at her show at Chicago's United Center on May 17, 2011 night, which she almost instantly thank them for it. For those who have attended such shows, please step forward to vouch for it. She thanks everyone for being a part of this celebration, which is still gaining momentum even it has been for 25 years. Amazing, right?

One important point to be noted at that function is that 13,000 of her fans, who attended that event gave the talk show host a standing ovation. A respect she truly deserved and earned.


The show was also followed by several meaningful and colourful programmes. Those who already know her well will not dispute that her graceful acts always inspire and touch every heart & soul. She rally can rock the world, she will fight for things she believes in, even if it makes her less popular. Thus, she makes herself distinctly different from other leaders. She had truly build a long lasting legacy which will flourish from time to time.

You can imagine how wonderful and colourful the atmosphere on that night, surrounded by so many great songs such as Mission Impossible, For God, Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Isn't She Lovely, to portray well the lady who uses her gifts to uplift so many hearts, through all of the sacrifices she has made, humility she has and through God's amazing grace.

This well illustrate the point that this long proven and established success recipe is not obsolete, but still relevant in the 21 century and in the future which I strongly believe so.

This truly inspired me and I hope you too are inspired by her. Let us together urge all world leaders to prescribe to her recipe of success, Servant Leadership, to make a world a very much better place to stay. So, let us put her excellent leadership on record for us to adopt and apply. Let us work together to make it a reality. This is nothing impossible if we work together towards it.


Thank you for your precious time and look forward to hearing your feedback.

ALL ABOUT THE AUTHOR, HARESH AND HIS BOOK

ALL ABOUT THE AUTHOR, HARESH AND HIS BOOK

My dear Readers,
It gives me great pleasure to have you here. Hope you are fine as I am.
Today I decided to pass some of the benefits, which I have obtained after joining the Goodread Social Network to you. You are more than welcome to join it. To make things more exciting, I decided to introduce one of the author friends I get to know from this network, he is none other than Mr. Haresh. After some conversation with him, I discovered that both of us have some common interests.
To know him better, append below please find his information, his recent book and the ratings he received from other authors from the same network. 
It is important to note that for the most part of this book is an expression of his philosophical thoughts and pondering, as it evolves over time. If it is your cup of tea, then get hold of the book and share with us your findings after you have read the book.
We, at this blog are  firm believers of prosperity through diversity, as such we always cover diverse daily affairs so that, you too will ultimately be lifted up as we are. Thank you for your continuous support and stay tuned for more inspiring news. 
Have a new discovery,

About The Author :


An entrepreneur, environmentalist, racer, wine lover, writer, and many more random things. Haresh has started writing through poetry and upon its mastery (mostly boredom, you cannot truly master writing as it is an evolving process) has shifted to experimenting with essay and short stories.
Haresh's passion in short story lies in being able to dwell within the universe of consciousness and experimenting, dissecting, and in short, exploring and destroying and recreating thoughts, concepts, interjecting hallucinations and twists focused on something deeper, engaging the reader to jump in and explore together.

 
An author having a conversation with his fictional character, or losing control of his character, mind numbing points leading to  twists and turns spinning the mind of the reader with hallucinogenic colors, concepts, and eurekas. 

The short stories begin simply, and walks together with the author as he takes a personal journey deep within the universe of his own consciousness, dwelling, prodding, dissecting, and creating... 

This book is a play on different writing styles uniquely conjured by the writer from random inspiration and experimentation with poetry as prior experience. 

This is a chronological anthology spanning the imagination and sanity of the writer. This book is a collection of humour, satire, and philosophy, with the most unique writing style and twists. 

This book evolves as one reads, from basic and simple stories of humor, to deeper and more profound satire best savored twice.
Bernard Schaffer rated it 4 of 5 stars
Haresh Daswani is not your usual author, and it is no surprise he’s written a pretty unusual book. The title “Evolution of Insanity” is an exercise in truthful advertising. Either Daswani is nuts or he’s operating on a level way up there in the stratosphere.
 
The book is a collection of short chapters that contain virtually no dialogue. The descriptions of simple things take on a kind of poetic oscillation that are always moving and impossible to pin down.
 
This book abandons standard narrative structure and embraces a James Joyce type stream-of-consciousness that will make you sometimes smile and sometimes scratch your head. I liked it. It felt fresh and different from the norm, even if I don’t feel smart enough to understand all of it. 


Shaeeza Haniff rated it 4 of 5 stars
The Evolution of Insanity is a collection of tales, stories, and fables about a variety of beings. Imagine for a moment you are able to stop and listen, see, witness and understand a segment of the lives of a collection of beings - Gods, godlike, god hating and god wannabes, the dead, the living, the fictional, the alien, male, female, the young and the old.
Stories that would have you believe that Santa was killed, "tongue in cheek" stories, stories intermingled with intellectual descriptions of body functions, of the human despair and condition. Stories like the one about a long suffering psychiatrist finding his "emotional wastebasket", Adam and Eve personas, Herman of whom we all know one of, the passing of the torch of thoughts and observation as depicted in "London in the Mind". Stories that enlighten us about the complexities of the interrelationships between the opposite sexes.
 
Haresh Daswani is a complex writer who writes with intellectual wit and philosophy interlaced with humor.
“We are all insane who hide in rooms further making us insane”.

A great read


Maureen Monlore rated it 5 of 5 stars
I have always been interested in books that deviate from the typical writing styles present in most literary pieces. Books that feature intellectually stimulating themes and an equally rousing writing style are my weaknesses. Give me the promise of these things and I will surely devour that book until my curiosity is sated. I think this is one of the reasons why I have always loved reading transgressive fiction and post-modern books.

In many ways, Mr. Haresh Daswani’s book, The Evolution of Insanity, gave me my much needed doze of intellectual stimulation through the interesting ways he worded his anthology and the eerily realistic plot points that will surely leave you thinking.

If I was given a dollar for every utterance of “Oo nga noh!” I would’ve been a rich girl by now. I remember the countless of times I stopped reading because I was bombarded with mind numbing bouts of self realization after reading a particularly sharp and moving line. I would then continue reading only to stop and ponder some more… it’s truly an eye opener! Mr. Daswani’s witty writing style gives the reader a better experience of what it is like to find sanity in the "insane" and vice versa.

I love how both subtlety and bluntness played with each other fairly well in this book. If Chuck Palahniuk and Paulo Coelho made a novel together, I bet it would be just like Mr. Daswani’s The Evolution of Insanity…an intellectually filling piece packed humor, wit and philosophy.

Truly, this book kept its promise… it sparked my interest, fueled my fascination to continue reading and left me wanting for more. 


Yzobelle Leon rated it 4 of 5 stars
Kaleidoscope.

A kaleidoscope is made up of small colored pieces. And when they are turned and given a different angle, they jell into one beautiful scene.

That is what I would associate Haresh’s book with.

Like a kaleidoscope, Evolution of Insanity is made up of different pieces, each a unique reflection of the author’s wild imagination. Each story piece has an exceptional storyline that would simply leave the reader in questioning awe, wondering where in this world could Haresh have possibly picked up that twist.

The variety of themes of the short stories also makes up the pieces of the kaleidoscope. The themes run a wide range – from spirituality to philosophy to life to beauty … of girls. All with profundity wrapped in wit and dry humor.

These short stories put together in one book reveal the beauty of a kaleidoscope.


P.S.
Caution: Read at your own risk.
This book is not for the faint-hearted. You must have your mind so open, your heart so universal, your humor so flexible, and your imagination so border-free to take utmost pleasure from reading this book. 


Nina rated it 5 of 5 stars
Shelves: from-the-authorloveownprint
First of all, I would like to thank the author of this book, Mr. Haresh Daswani, for giving me a copy of this book, and the opportunity to read it and give my thoughts about it.

And now, for the review. Obviously, I would not be thanking the author as publicly if I had not enjoyed this book. It is witty, entertaining, filled with crackling anecdotes, and hilarious commentary. Best of all, it is fraught with intelligent observations of how we humans live.

Let me go so far as to say that this book is best read when you are in your most intellectual mood, as it would dare you to think beyond the words of what is written and delve into the author's mind about how he views things. In a way, I felt that this was not just a book created from the author's imagination, but a reflection of how the author views the world. One would laugh at the humor-filled statements, the comic scenes and settings, but once one understood the essence of such remarks, one could not help but nod and say, "Yes, that is quite true. Why did I not think of that myself?" Or maybe even add one's own ideas, maybe disagree with what has been said? Either way, one is challenged to agree or refute the author's ideology and rationalize one's own beliefs.

Reading through Daswani's book, I could not help but be reminded of those times in Philosophy class in college. His writing makes the reader think that they are having a conversation with someone else, probably a very favorite teacher, a smart friend, or better yet, the author himself. Which reminded me of those times when we studied Socrates and how he conducted his discussions with his students. Now I am not saying that Daswani is a modern-day Socrates, but what he talked about in this book could spark a lively debate in any Philosophy class and if I were still in college right now, I'd probably bring Evolution of Insanity to school and make our professor torture the whole class with intense conversations about the things talked about in this book.

Which is not to say that this book is only good for super-intelligent conversations or musings. You can also read this solely for its entertainment value, and probably use a few lines from this book as your new joke or ice breakers. The possibilities are endless.

His writing style is also one for the books. In one chapter, he would go all narrative-like and describe in witty detail a funny story and in another, he would abandon all thought for story-telling and write ideas, observations in prose - straightforward and directly addressing readers, oftentimes even issuing a challenge.

Simply put, this book is a good one to have on your shelf to read during moments of boredom, moments of severe bursts of intellect, moments of good conversations, and practically any moment that you would prefer to read. Which, in my case, is very often.

A REAL EXPERIENCE WHICH YOU SHOULD NOT MISS

A REAL EXPERIENCE WHICH YOU SHOULD NOT MISS


Hi! Everyone,

 
After reading through this invaluable real life experience from the article, as append at the bottom of this post, which I found at http://www.mortylefkoe.com/happy-turned-be, I must admit that I too have prescribed this success formula in the past, almost similar to the author of this blog, to overcome the issues we had encountered at that time. Today, it turns out to be a blessing that the author decided to share his experience as a way out for those who may need it.


I am deeply touched by his act and subsequently I not only attest to his success formula, but it also struck my mind, to immediately dropped him an email to seek his permission to link this article to my blog, which he subsequently consented to. That's how you are able to read his article as I did. Trust it will be useful to you too.

I write to express my heartfelt thanks to this author who has just celebrated his 74 years young. I noted his photo is amazingly younger than his biological age.


Trust you too find it an excellent lesson for us to stop giving meaning to events, but rather to look at them in a positive way so as to avoid them causing any unnecessary stress to our lives.


Before I end, I hope you too will spread this article to your circle of contacts to show your care and love, which I strongly believe you will do so.

Thank you in advance.

Are You Happy With Who You Turned Out To Be?

by Morty Lefkoe on May 17, 2011


For most of my life I didn’t want to be me. I was so unhappy with my life that being almost anyone else would have been preferable to being me. For many years I wanted to be Fred Astaire, because I loved the joyful, bright sense of life he projected, an experience that I rarely felt.


What is the source of this dramatic shift?


Getting rid of all the beliefs and conditionings that led me to be depressed and unhappy most of the time. And then learning how to stop giving meaning to the daily events in my life. Today I experience myself as the creator of my life almost all the time and I’ve stopped giving meaning to events most of the time, which has almost totally eliminated stress from my life. I’ve stopped seeking; I know I’m already there. I feel anything is possible and that I have no limitations. I experience virtually all my circumstances as okay just the way they are.


Why am sharing this with you?


Because what I did to reach this state is available to you too. Anyone (including you, yes, even you!) can experience a sense of wholeness, feeling totally okay with the way you are, and that you are the creator of your life. It doesn’t have to take a lot of time and it isn’t very expensive.


Please don’t give up your dream of a life of joy and success. I was about as low as you can get and I’ve now reached a state of total satisfaction with my life. You can too. Don’t wait until your 74th birthday to be truly happy with your life.

ANOTHER GRACEFUL ACT

ANOTHER GRACEFUL ACT

Hi! Everyone,


The news, Buddhist who donates to mosques and suraus, in the Star dated May 19, 2011 attracted my attention and interest. After reading it, I find it is worthy of commendation and praise.


This good Samaritan, a mini market operator Tan Jai Wei, 46 has a big heart and is full of love. He is married and has two children, that he held a vegetable carnival to collect donations for the construction of a mosque in Taman Kenari six years ago was truly amazing. He decided to help a friend whom he had met at his Wang Shang mini market, Taman Kenari, the day before. He believes that this graceful action has made his business flourish. He reaps what he sows is well recorded in most, if not all, religious teaching.


From being only a retailer, he is now the main distributor for a rice mill based in Yan.


His care and love well indicate that true love is of no color and boundary, well recorded in all religious teaching. His graceful act well reflects his faith. Through these good inter faith practices, we can safely infer that prosperity and harmony will be preserved especially in countries which have many religions.






As such, we are very impressed with Mr. Tan's graceful act and trust that more people will follow his foot step so as to avoid any manipulation by certain irresponsible parties.


Let us be clear that no good religion will allow disgraceful act from its followers. This is because its followers will always carry the image of his faith no matter how.


Trust the above act serve as a good lesson for every reader. So let Love guide our daily life so as we will be rest assured of the peace we deserved.


Thank you for your precious time and do spread this good news to your circle of contacts. Thank you in advance.
