Three Paperclips & a Grey Scarf (An Evan Davis Tale)

BOOK DESCRIPTION Evan Davis is a writer, or at least he would be if he could finish his first book. Because the book has languished unfinished, Davis finds himself presented with an ultimatum by his agent: Take a three-month assignment as a press embed in Afghanistan or risk losing his book contract. Since the job does have a salary attached he takes it, but before departing, a friend hands Davis a hastily gathered good luck charm: three paperclips. Over the months in country, he gets to know the men of a small team of US soldiers that he is deployed with and rediscovers his muse writing about their experiences in Southwest Asia for a truth hungry American public. Davis also finds a use for each of his talismans, as they save his life and those of the men he comes to regard as his team; the soldiers who promised each other that they would all make it home in one piece.

Building a Noble World
Religion & Spirituality , Reviews , Self Help / October 16, 2017

BOOK DESCRIPTION Shiv R. Jhawar’s spiritual book, Building a Noble World, inspires seekers to go beyond organized religion to discover their own spiritual nature.  In this uplifting and thought-provoking book, Jhawar writes, “Once you have an experience of transcendental reality, you are changed forever.” One of the ironies of the 21st Century is that in spite of tremendous progress in science and technology, people still suffer from increasing levels of stress, unhappiness, mental illness, and addictions. What’s the use of wealth if one’s mind is not at peace? Peace, happiness, or perfect love – that’s what everyone is seeking. Nobody can ever find it by seeking outside because it lies inside. Only when one stops seeking outside and dives within, can one discover the blissful inner Self. Unless one finds the authentic source of peace within, one cannot live a meaningful, fulfilling life. This discovery is the foundation of all religions. The book, Building a Noble World, is a trustworthy guide for attaining everlasting bliss and contentment. Drawing from some of the greatest prophets and philosophers throughout the annals of history, Jhawar conveys a very simple yet profound message: There will never be peace in the world until people first…
