The following represents all books currently listed within the genre, Education & Reference:
If you want to stop bouncing around from one diet to another, make this the last time you ever have to lose weight, regain your confidence, finally feel comfortable in your clothes and transform your life inside and out…then you want to read this book.
And here’s why - traditional approaches to weight loss and improving your health simply don’t work. They didn’t work for me, and they haven’t worked for you, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this right now.
The truth is you can get the health and body of your dreams, without giving up all your favourite foods, starving yourself or spending everyday in the gym, and I’m not just going to show you how, I’m going to guide you every step of the way.
What it comes down to is balance, looking at your lifestyle on the whole, and not looking for another one size fits all quick fix.
I really wanted to do something different with this book, that actually works and produces sustainable results, combining scientific research with the help, guidance and support I wish I had back when I was struggling on my own.
That’s why everything in this book can be tailored around you, from your goals to the changes you want to make, fitting around your routine, your commitments and what you truly want in life.
Just a few of the things we will be covering are:
- How to put together a balanced diet, free from restriction, creating healthy meals you love, determining portion sizes without counting calories and how to eat to achieve your weight loss goals.
- Ways to develop healthier habits, manage stress, change your mindset, overcome limiting beliefs and finally reach your true potential.
- Learning to listen to your body, as you start to make more informed choices in all areas of your life, stop acting on impulse and break the control cravings and willpower have over you.
- Becoming active in a way you actually enjoy, that you look forward to and fits into your routine.
- Finding ways to rest, relax and unwind, regardless of how busy you are.
- Getting round the barrier of time, eating healthy on a budget and more.
All of this added together will create a momentum shift in all areas of your life, and there are systems in check to keep you accountable and consistent.
Not only will you lose weight, but you will also boost your energy, improve your mood, focus, sleep and general outlook on life, all while becoming a healthier, happier you.
No it won’t happen overnight, but just think, in 10 weeks you could completely transform your life, finally achieving what you’ve spent years dreaming about, showing you that change is possible and that you are the one in control of your own destiny.
Just remember, this is not a diet, it’s a change in lifestyle, that will help you not only look, but also feel better than you ever have before.
So if you are serious about making this the last time you ever have to lose weight, then the time to take action is now!

In the early 19th century, when it was the policy of many of the poorhouses and workhouses to deter paupers from applying by making the conditions inside harsh and unpleasant, two boys set out on a journey to Hackney Workhouse in London. Their starting point was in the pleasant Cheshire countryside, where they were apprenticed to the cotton mill built by Samuel Greg in 1784. Children as young as nine would be employed there as scavengers, piecers, mule doffers or can tenters. These jobs could be just as unpleasant and difficult for a poor child as those we may have heard of, such as chimney sweeps and match girls.
Quarry Bank Mill was some 200 miles north of London and the boys had to sneak out unnoticed and then attempt to walk all the way. It was likely that these enterprising travellers took advantage of the drovers’ roads and the newly developed “motorways” of the times—the canals. Perhaps they were lucky enough some days to hitch a lift; their general direction of travel taking them to Beartown, the Potteries, Dunstable Downs and, eventually, to London. Whatever challenges they encountered along the way, archived evidence shows that they made it.
Runaway apprentices had become a problem for society during the years of the Industrial Revolution—so what had prompted Thomas and Joseph to do such a hazardous thing? What happened to them on their long journey? Did they receive any help? Or were they chased relentlessly wherever they ran, since what they were doing was illegal in the eyes of the authorities?
This is the story of their adventure and it concludes with the events in the Middlesex courthouse, known then as the Old Sessions.

♥♥♥This book will blow away your preconceptions of the almighty American Empire and its Enterprises. I guarantee it!♥♥♥
This book takes its title from the 1980 comedy film “The Gods Must Be Crazy,” in which an empty Coca-Cola bottle is dropped from a plane onto a community of African bushmen. The bottle is thought to be a gift from the Gods, but after it incites bitter fighting amongst the villagers, the tribal leader decides to return it to the Gods, embarking upon a journey to the end of the world. Through my own metaphorical coke bottle, I visualize the dawn of a daunting new Empire. This book serves as both a testament to the past glories of the current American Empire and a guidebook to restoring Capitalism and Enterprise – before it is too late.
Steve Hilton:” A lot of people say that China wants to replace the US as the superpower ..., Do you believe that that's their intention?"
Trump: "Yes, I do. Why wouldn't it be? They're very ambitious people. They're very smart. They're great people. It's a great culture."
- Fox News interview (05-19-19)
It’s halftime America!
Ay Yi Yai Yi! We are in the middle of The New World Order!
Empires rise, decline, and fall. History has witnessed this cycle with the Romans, the Ottomans, and the British. They have all toppled, and if we are not careful, the US will be the next.
Many of today’s enterprises are a gaggle of debt-addicted extreme financial engineering frogs floundering in tepid snake oil. Unfortunately, many will find their demise in the clutches of IP vultures.
If we don't play our trump cards right, the next voracious Empire - the Middle Kingdom of China - will consume us; sending their errand boys to collect bills from the US and over a hundred other countries that it has economically and digitally colonized since the Economic Tsunami of 2008, through “Belt and Road Initiative” (BRI) to its “Digital Silk Road” (DSR).
“Make Enterprise Great Again” digs into the foundations of capitalism and traces the ideals, triumphs and zeitgeist of the Roosevelt years in order to “Build Back Better” – and to save us from the impending Fourth Reich.
Yeah! It's halftime, America!
ARE YOU RUNNING OR LAUNCHING A BUSINESS?
IS YOUR BUSINESS COMMUNICATION CRYSTAL CLEAR?
IF NOT, WHY NOT?
Perhaps you need a book to grab you by the hand, make you look at things from entirely fresh angles, teach you to trust your instincts, and signpost expensive pitfalls before you trip over them.
Getting it Write is built on a feet-firmly-on-the-floor philosophy, as well as on years of experience in launching and writing for successful businesses - scars, t-shirts and cynicism as proof. Showing you there are no absolute rights, wrongs or rules, it shares options, opinions, suggestions and most important of all, demonstrates how and why common-sense is the common denominator for success - once you learn to trust yourself.
"5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging, succinct - with brilliant tips.
This book has inspired me to change my copy on every single forum out there! There are so many brilliant tips and Marilyn’s engaging humour shines throughout. I have a long list of to do's and ideas to follow through. Aside from the tips, I learned simply from her style of writing - she practices what she preaches. It's helped me focus, refine and step into my authenticity in the material I put out there. Sometimes you read a book that really changes how you think, this is one of those.’ Welshy. 7 February 2019"

A humorous, animal detective story for 7-12 year-olds.
When Mr Woodland Mouse mysteriously disappears, Constable Mole is quick to enlist the help of Leon Chameleon, Private Investigator, whose expertise enabled the Pigeon Valley Police to solve the case of the missing canary eggs.
After organising a search, Leon realises that there is only one creature in the valley who can spring the captured mouse from his prison. But just when he thinks Mr Woodland Mouse is safely on his way home, the plan goes horribly wrong..."
All the animal details of food, habits, and lifestyle are true to nature (apart from Constable Mole’s sunglasses!) and the animals solve the crimes using their own natural abilities. Children will absorb much knowledge of the small creatures of Africa without being aware of it.
A section of interesting facts has been added to this second detective story in the Leon Chameleon PI series. It provides valuable and little-known information on chameleons, moles and other creatures featured in the story.

It was Christmas 1942. Eleven young women braved the attentions of Nazi U-Boats in the deep Atlantic on their way to North Africa. About to play their part in defeating Hitler, they called themselves the First Eleven.
According to Winston Churchill, the Mediterranean was the key to defeating the Third Reich. And a crucial part of undermining Fascist power in Italy, France and the Mediterranean islands would be subversion and sabotage. But the undercover fighters needed a springboard to spearhead their operations in the ‘soft underbelly’ of Europe.
Those eleven young women joined heroic soldiers, sailors and secret agents at the Special Operations Executive’s new North African base. Code-named Massingham, it was hidden away among pine trees by a Mediterranean beach. SOE, America’s OSS and the French intelligence agencies worked together to undermine cruel regimes.
This is the remarkable story of Massingham. Its life was short. Less than two years after its formation, its multinational job was done. British, American, French, Italian, Spanish: together they played a key role in the Second World War.
Alongside the espionage of MI6 and the strategic deception of ‘A Force’, Massingham’s men and women launched covert operations at dead of night: by parachute, by submarine, by canoe easing silently on to a deserted beach. In the tradition of Antony Beevor and Ben Macintyre, this book reveals an aspect of WW2 history that has remained hidden for far too long.
Did Enron really live by its stated value of Integrity? Many companies have values enshrined on a plaque in a prominent location but do their values positively contribute to business success or undermine it?
We all have values, whether we know what they are or not. So, all companies have values, whether they are clearly and honestly articulated or not. Knowing and living by our values reduces conflict. Not living by our standards increases conflict, within ourselves, with others and between teams.
Based on practical experience, this fascinating book provides insight into the concepts of personal and company values, pitfalls of using them incorrectly, and the power they generate, when applied consistently. In particular, the book explores the need for executives and managers, of all company sizes, to be deeply aware of their own values, the impact their collective values have throughout the organisation, and how they can use values to create competitive advantage.
Book is for YOU…if you…
...are a professional and in a job that you don't like? YOU feel frustrated and exhausted?
…are someone who is going to complete your studies and enter in the working force/ job market?
...feel, you are not living life to its fullest because you are not into a profession that you love?
AT the same time, you love something more than anything else but not sure how to convert that into a career so that you enjoy a fulfilling life.
If YOU can relate to the above scenarios, then this BOOK can be of help.
I have experienced the same dilemma, and, in this book, I have shared some options to align your career to the skills/hobby/art that you have passion for.
I have introduced a concept 'Mission Passion', which is to write a 'Mission Statement' for your own career based on your passion. Every organization has its 'Mission Statement' that provides guideline to steer through its path. The same way, your 'MissionPassion' statement will help you to stick to your 'Passion based career' and not get diverted.
I have covered different stages of careers that anyone can be at any point of time and how one can make a career shift.
There are some nice quotes and narratives of the successful people talking about how 'Passion' can help to live a successful life.
To make things more interesting, and to motivate you, I have shared a true story of a common man, his struggles during studies, in his job life, trying different businesses before finding his true passion and achieving success beyond his imagination.
I know that now a days don't have much time to read so I have tried my best to keep the book size smaller to make it a quick read and worth the time spent.
The main objective of writing this book is to improve life of people who are just living by and not really enjoying what they do and I will be really happy if this book will be of any help to shape up YOUR career and life
Bheki is small for his age and is bullied by the bigger herdboys in his African village, but his magic light wins him friends and respect – until the light begins to fade. Bheki then embarks on a life-changing journey to bring power back to the magic light.
Perfect for teaching children about science, other cultures, and self-worth.
'The big day has arrived and Bheki’s house is flooded with electric light for the first time. He remembers the time, many years before, when his father gave him a light that really did seem to be magic. The torch brought him many friends and a new status in the kraal, until its beam began to fade. Bheki’s journey to bring power back to the magic light tested him to the limit but ended in magic of a different kind. It gave him a belief in himself.'
At the end of the story, Bheki explains how batteries work and how electricity is generated and brought into homes across the world.
If you watched Nelson Mandela's funeral service at Qunu you will recognise the similar rural setting in the story. (Nelson Mandela was also a herd boy)
Bheki and the Magic Light was first published by Penguin Books SA.
The book that could change your life.
Whether you’re just starting out in your career or an expert in your field you will need some basic skills in public speaking – and some practical advice. Here it is.
The ability to speak in public is probably the most rewarding skill you will ever learn. It will not only improve your career prospects, but will also boost your self-confidence at social functions (you may never become the life and soul of the party, but at least you won't have to remain a wallflower!)
Have you ever:
Been nervous about a promotion because it involved public speaking?
Been afraid to speak up in meetings?
Turned down an invitation to speak at your garden club or similar (or choked horribly in the attempt)?
Been unsure about proposing a toast, or introducing and thanking a speaker?
Then you will benefit from the tips and guidelines in this book. Self-confidence comes from knowing the correct way of doing things - and how to avoid the pitfalls.
As you advance in your career you might be expected to:
Deliver farewell speeches.
Do media interviews.
And yes, give eulogies.
This book provides a step-by-step guide for giving these, and many other speeches, with examples that show you what to do, what not to do - and what can go hilariously wrong! (Some things are only learned by experience).
Jan Hurst-Nicholson has used her 35-year involvement in public speaking training, and her experiences giving talks at numerous events and organisations to compile this practical guide. Uniquely geared towards the average person who does not aspire to become a professional speaker, (although there's good stuff for them as well) but merely wants practical advice on speaking in public, (don't drink anything fizzy before a speech) it is packed with meaty information that provides the tools for a better, confident you. Use them and you will soon have those butterflies flying in formation - and it might even change your life.
