Synopsis

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!

SPECIAL BONUS FOR READERS!

As a thank you for buying this book, I’m offering all readers a transformation call directly with me, to help you map out and get clarity on your own journey.

Book cover image for The Quarry Bank Runaways
View full details

Synopsis

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.

Gods Must Be Crazy: New Year GIFT - FREE Audible Book! https://a.co/3mdPuK0
Breaking News! "The Gods Must be Crazy!": Trump's presidential Proclamation "Make Enterprise Great Again" and Biden go to BUNKER to "Build Enterprises Back Better." https://youtu.be/5ZlJncOLZjM

Wow! What a Year! I, too, had an excruciating year to begin with, including COVID taking my storyteller's (narrator) soul to heaven. When the darkness rolled in, through thick and thin, an amazing community was there for me with helping hands. Just as an example, we cracked the code of BIG Publishing houses and achieved something even crème de la crème writers could dream about. Within a few months, thousands read the Gods Must Be Crazy in over a dozen countries, offering over 50 rave reviews (Amazon + GoodReads), and even achieved the #1 bestseller rank in many Amazon categories! Above all, I donate the royalty from this book for a greater purpose to Mother Teresa Mission (Missionaries of Charity).

As a token of gratitude, I would like to give away New Year GIFT. It's totally free, if it is your first time accepting an Audible book from a friend. Get it here: https://a.co/3mdPuK0

♥♥♥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!

Book cover image for Getting It Write: Common Sense Copywriting for your Business
View full details

Synopsis

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"

Book cover image for Setting the Med Ablaze: Churchill's Secret North African Base
View full details

Synopsis

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.

Book cover image for Passion to Success
View full details

Synopsis

Book is for YOU…if you…
...are a professional and in a job that you don't like? YOU feel frustrated and exhausted?
OR
…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.
#MissionPassion
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

Synopsis

★★ PMP Exam Prep: Master Your Integration Management Concepts ★★

"Bringing it all together.
Getting the grip in coordinating and preparing how the processes and knowledge areas fit together can be sometimes daunting to those new the Project Management. Shiv once again explained how with great examples."
- Philips Adeniyi

This book is updated for the latest PMBOK (6th) version and the latest 2021 PMP syllabus and includes the Predictive and Agile project management concepts in the Integration Management knowledge area.

With the latest changes to the PMP® exam, questions now focus more on concepts as applied to scenarios, even the ITTO (Inputs, Tools & Techniques, Outputs) based ones. This book, the second part in the series 'Ace Your PMP Exam' covers the Integration management concepts using examples, illustrations, mnemonics, and mind maps.

This book does not follow the practice of listing every single ITTO, rather it focuses on explaining all the concepts in a brain-friendly way, making this one of the easiest PMP books to study.

Take a look at the Table of Content by clicking on the 'Look Inside' link on the book image to see the PMP syllabus covered in this book.

Some of the Integration management concepts covered are -
✓ Business value and Benefits realization
✓ Project feasibility assessments
✓ Process analysis techniques
✓ Developing project plan
✓ Getting project work done
✓ Managing project knowledge
✓ Overseeing project work
✓ Change management in projects
✓ Closing a project
✓ Corresponding sections for Agile-Hybrid projects

This book is a complementing study resource to a PMP® study resource. Apart from mastering the integration management concepts, many of my students are also using this book (and others in this series) as a revision tool just before the exam, with exceptional results.

The easy-to-understand, bite-sized chunks of information given in this book will help you master the concepts in no time.

Book cover image for The Adventures of Doctor X in China: Five years teaching ESL in a strange land
View full details

Synopsis

In his late fifties Doctor X realised that he was in the ‘death zone,’ and didn’t want to go out feet up, sitting in front of the TV in the UK – he wanted to continue to live a life. Journey with him on his five-year love and hate affair with China, seeking out a new life, and enjoying strange encounters - boldly going where no English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher has gone before.

Doctor X gives us his unexpurgated insight into an ESL teacher’s life in China. What it’s really like in the high schools of China. He outs the unprofessional, and drunken behaviour of the riff raff that wash up professing to be teachers but are really professional bar flies. He also provides crucial hints, and tips for the new teacher thinking about giving China a go.

He writes frankly about his relationship with some of the women that were just ships that passed in the night. From Little Yellow, and the ladyboys of Bangkok to meeting E - his eventual life partner. This erotilogue will show you a China hidden from the tourist – the bathhouses, and the pink curtained massage parlours. Doctor X does not regret one moment of it - it has been an experience worth living – one moment close to death, the next in the arms of random women.

And to think Doctor X could be back home in Britain stacking shelves in Tesco.

Book cover image for Memories into Memoir: The Mindsets and Mechanics Workbook Paperback – Large Print
View full details

Synopsis

For years, people have told you to write a book, you've got a great story to tell, and you could teach people something. But great stories don't always translate into excellent memoirs. Why is that? Excellent memoirs take pre-planning before you start writing – even a draft.

A significant part of your pre-planning involves:
•Understanding why you are writing this book
•Establishing positive mindsets
•Creating emotional safety
•Retrieving memories
•Determining your theme
•Choosing a point of view
•Disclosing information about yourself and others.

This workbook explains the mindsets and mechanics needed to write that remarkable memoir. Worksheets help you review, reflect, and remember. Plus, you'll save yourself some of the problems I had when I wrote my memoir, Finding North: A Journey from Addict to Advocate.

Parents who decide to school their children at home commit time and energy to an activity that was once left to specialized professionals. Even in the states with the most permissive home-schooling laws, parents must learn
what is normally taught to children of a given age, find materials and projects that teach specific skills, and learn how to use their own time and that of their children productively. The vast majority of home-school parents hope their children will attend college and so must also learn how to assess their children’s progress against higher education admission standards.

Book cover image for What Is Present Reality: The Power of Managing the Limits of Science by Vipin Gupta
View full details

Synopsis

"What is present reality" is an incredibly profound but straightforward exposition of the "limits of science."

Every scientist wishes that someone will falsify the world crafted using the present body of scientific methods one day. One such world comprises the manifold versions of relativity theories, measuring E = mc2. Suppose one deified scientist had not mathematically derived the value of energy in this way. In that case, today's scientists will not bind their understanding to the light serviced by the deified leader scientist, traded and squared by them as a devoted follower. Evidently, when one conceives energy as mc2, its value-without the presence of the leader deity-is zero.

This landmark work, grounded in India's ancient cultural metaphysics, challenges the present reality of what we know and believe to be true, whether about divinity, or spirituality, or the universe of objects or subjects, or us as a person. A unique feature is the precise quantification of the lightless energies, of both the present reality as well as the varying paradigms and doctrines working on modifying that. It is a part of a series of twelve books that democratizes the ability to understand our present reality, beyond those who are experts in modern science, and use this understanding for personal as well as societal well-being. The beta reviewers note "This is unbelievable work that would change the way life is seen and lived" and "Looking forward to this being a massive success!"

Dr. Vipin Gupta has a Ph.D. in managerial science and applied economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He is a gold medalist from the Post-graduate Program of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, India. He is a Professor of sensible management and appropriate science at the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration, California State University San Bernardino, USA.
