Coconut Oil Breakthrough: Boost Your Brain, Burn The Fat, Build Your Hair
B.J. Richards - 2016
The first thing to go is our waistline. Then our skin starts to become dry, cracked and wrinkled, with less elasticity. Eventually, even our hair will become thin, dry, dull and lifeless. Looking at ourselves in the mirror each morning becomes more and more painful, especially when we compare what we have become to what we once were. Then our memory begins to slip, and we start to forget the little things in life. There was once a time when our memory was sharp as a tack, but now we makes jokes about those things we have forgotten. We joke to alleviate the pain of growing old and realizing that one day, we might not even be able to remember the important people in our lives. We make do by leaving notes for ourselves in the form of little sticky notes placed all around the house. Age, it seems, is going to leave us all as a shell of the human beings we once were. I know how you feel. I was once in the same position myself. For years, I struggled with my weight and the fat that just wouldn't leave my body, no matter how healthy I tried to eat and how much exercise I did to knock off the unwanted pounds. No matter how well I ate or what shampoos I used, my hair was breaking and the weight just stared back at me. Learning about the health benefits of coconut oil was a game-changer for me, and it could be for you too. I've been involved in natural healing for over 30 years, in my personal life, as a researcher and a practitioner. But, even with all of the advanced knowledge I had on the subject, I was unable to escape the symptoms I described previously. When I started hearing stories about the traditional health benefits of this wonder fruit, I dug in and started doing all of the necessary research to understand how adding the coconut to my daily regimen could change my life in a very positive way. You might just be surprised at how powerful this plant really is in addressing the health problems you might be facing in your daily life. There are literally more than 30 ways we can use the coconut to improve the quality of our lives. You can use coconut oil, milk and water to: • Rehydrate your skin, and make your skin look and feel healthy again. • Reduce bad breath, plaque and gingivitis to improve your oral health and your social life. • Burn off the fat and the unwanted pounds, so that you can fit in your skinny jeans again, and perhaps even turn a few heads your way.Triple your metabolism, providing you the energy levels of someone half your age. • Enhance your memory and sharpen your mind, so that you won't have to worry again about forgetting those important details in your life. Kate recommended, “I, personally, have experienced the benefit to my skin that this book teaches, and have found that coconut oil has become a staple in my home in many of the ways that BJ recommends in her book. If you are looking for that one stop resource on all things coconut oil, then this is the book to buy!!” Agi added more to the story of this book. “I am a Personal Trainer and a Functional Nutrition Practitioner and I have been using and recommending coconut oil for some time and researched a lot of its uses, but learned more from reading this book. I will recommend this book to my clients.” The bottom line is that coconut oil, milk and water – used in the right ways – can be very beneficial to one's health.

Robert Marchisello - 2017
Somewhere in the darkness, a man is burning to death. Then the screams suddenly stop. Did he jump out of a window? Or did he succumb to the heat and smoke? Those screams haunt Firefighter Robert Marchisello to this day. It’s just one of the many revealing stories about battling blazes and numerous other dangers in America’s fifth-largest city—home of the nation’s first fire company—in this autobiography of his thirty-seven-year career with the Philadelphia Fire Department. During his entire career Marchisello kept a journal detailing his experiences as well as his personal and professional challenges. His work offers rare insights into the unimaginable types of emergencies to which these men and women respond—from decomposing bodies to hazardous chemicals to deadly shootouts. Between calls sit in the firehouse and enjoy the pranks, banter, humor, and camaraderie firefighters share. His vibrant writing lets you experience the adrenalin, the danger and yes, even the laughs of nearly four decades on the firegrounds, in the firehouses and everywhere in between. You’ll never look at a passing fire engine the same way!

What The Pandemic Learned From Me
Anindita Das - 2021
A journey of self-realization and renewed assessment of our lives, marked by silly anecdotes, mindless distractions, and everyday truths. This book is a humorous retelling of the author’s personal blunders and mind-boggling human behavior in general, strung together by a series of hilarious open letters. It is a modest pursuit to deliver a little relief, and diversion from the pandemic’s grim realities. It’s also an attempt to reaffirm the need for a good laugh to help deal with the doom and gloom that now surrounds our lives. Each letter picks up a relatable theme of our lockdown life – be it our obsession with baking banana bread, growing out our beards, or finding the fanciest holiday homes in Goa. What comes out, is a light and delightful offering that anyone living in this era shouldn’t miss. “A breezy read that goes well with your evening tea (like Marie Gold) or finds a permanent spot on your nightstand. A perfect picker-upper if you're feeling down, it reminded me of Bill Bryson's 'A Short History of Nearly Everything' and Hugh Prather's 'Notes to Myself'.”- Manish Bhatt, Founder/CCO August Communications“Hits a cord with everyone who has left the rat race of ‘acquiring new skills’. It is honest, straightforward, and downright hilarious. I loved the book. I found it clutter-breaking, relatable and non-preachy.” - Shilpi Agarwal, Blogger @bookgasmicSome important information:o The book is part memoir, part random lists and part mean musings.o It celebrates the ability to find humor in unexpected predicaments and life in general.o It’s a collection of letters addressed to the most unlikely of receivers, filled with pithy observations, irreverent and ruthless humor about the little idiosyncrasies of life in lockdown.o Each of these perfectly bite sized letters are wonderful accompaniments to the massive mood swings that is our reality in the times of corona.o Under no circumstance, this book is to be taken seriously, seriously.Savor this quick pick-me-up with a hot cup, a pinch of salt and a great deal of grins."

Bad Blood: The Secret Life of the Tour de France
Jeremy Whittle - 2009
And then there are the riders: men of almost superhuman capabilities, men who have become his friends, men whose stories he has written day in day out for the past decade. But even the biggest fan can one day wake up to find that he has lost his faith. Bad Blood is the story of Jeremy Whittle's journey from unquestioning fan to Tour de France insider and confirmed sceptic. It's about broken friendships and a sport divided; about having to choose sides in the war against doping; about how galloping greed and corporate opportunism have led the Tour de France to the brink of destruction. Part personal memoir, part devastating exposé of a sport torn apart by drugs and scandal, Bad Blood is a love letter to one man's past, and a warning to cycling's future.
