Self Help Books Book Excerpt:

Based on a reading of more than three hundred self-help books, Sandra K. Dolby examines this remarkably popular genre to define "self-help" in a way that's compelling to academics and lay readers alike. Self-Help Books also offers an interpretation of why these books are so popular, arguing that they continue the well-established American penchant for self-education, articulate problems of daily life and supposed solutions for them, and present their content in an accessible rather than arcane form and style. Using methods associated with folklore studies, Dolby then examines how the genre makes use of stories, aphorisms, and a worldview that is at once traditional and contemporary. The overarching premise of the study is that self-help books, much like fairy tales, take traditional materials, especially stories and ideas, and recast them into extended essays that people happily read, think about, try to apply, and then set aside when a new embodiment of the genre comes along.

Burn Rate Book Excerpt:

Michael Wolff's wickedly funny chronicle of his rags-to-riches-to-rags adventure as a fledgling Internet entrepreneur exposes an industry powered by hype, celebrity, and billions of investment dollars -- and notably devoid of profit-making enterprises. As he describes his efforts to control his company's burn rate -- the amount of money the company consumes in excess of its income -- Wolff offers a no-holds-barred portrait of unaccountable successes and major disasters, including the story behind Wired magazine and its fanatical founder, Louis Rossetto; the rise of America Online, perhaps the most dysfunctional successful company in history, and the humiliating inability of people such as Bill Gates to untangle the intricacies of the Web.

A Free Spirit s Search for Enlightenment Getting Past the Matrix Book Excerpt:

This book is for anyone looking for enlightenment which is simple once you know what it is. It’s to see yourself as the pure being you are away from everything you’ve ever been brainwashed by. Sounds simple but many people live an entire lifetime and not realize they are pure beings with their own true natures who do not owe anything to the people or the society around them except to pay bills and follow the laws. Most misery comes from not being who you are in your natural state. Watch any animal. Cage him up, he gets depressed and angry. Let him be free and he’s happy. Most of us grow up to be slaves to some artificial value then wonder why we’re not happy. The first slavery is to your family. Your father has expectations for you. He wants what is good for you but if he was a truly enlightened father, he would let you live your own life and not push you into the path he wants for you. My second slavery was to my Catholic religion which was not all that bad. It gave me a sense of community and morals but at sixteen, I went to confession then realized that was kind of silly, me a grown man, confessing my sins to another grown man. I still believe in the community the church offers but my relationship to God is direct. No middle man intervenes. I was brought up in a capitalist-pop culture neighborhood in Halifax, Canada. We were into the Beatles and pinball. Everything was about working, business, making money, buying stuff, getting ahead in the capitalist sense. There is more to life than money. There should come a point when you ask yourself what can I do to make me happy beyond these material things I’m surrounded by. I went to a Catholic elementary school where we pledged allegiance to the Queen and listened to the national anthem Oh Canada every day. The 36 volumes about living by your free spirit are as follows: Volume 1. A Free Spirit’s Search for Enlightenment Volume 2. How Do You Keep it Goin' All the Time? Volume 3. Purge your Life-force with Gusto to Ride that Free Feeling Volume 4. Live by Your Natural Flow Volume 5. Reach Transcendence Volume 6. The Soul on a Spectrum that I Call the Soul Scale Volume 7. Anatomy of the Soul: the Soul is an Essence with 22 Parts Volume 8. Joy is Living by Spiritual-Esthetic Flow Volume 9. The Artist Looking for Purpose Volume 10. Paradise in in my Mind Volume 11. Fire in Your Soul Volume 12. Don’t Stop Ever Volume 13. Your Archetypes Help You Feel Free ...

This book covers types or groups of people in matters of love and sex. I cover different groups of people looking for love and people who do not necessarily fit into a traditional society as far as love and sex go.
