Body Beliefs – Women, Weight Loss, And Happiness by Jason Seib

After years of coaching frustrated, yo-yo dieting women with fat loss goals, Jason Seib has reached a firm conclusion: his job is about minds, not bodies. Poor body image, low confidence, self sabotage, perfectionism, extrinsic motivations, social comparison, a basic misunderstanding of what fat loss really is – these are just a few of the obstacles keeping so many women from achieving their goals and creating bodies they love to live in. Yes, he is a man, but few professionals of either gender could ever lay claim to as much passion and devotion as Seib has poured into Body Beliefs. You can have the body you want, but you’re focused on the wrong part of the problem and your perspective is keeping you from success. Change your beliefs so that you can change your body. Forever.

The Hellfire Complex by Michael Ummarino

History has called them demi-gods, witches, sorcerers, and aberrations. Today, science calls them Genetians; humans born with seemingly supernatural abilities as much a part of their DNA as the color of their eyes. Since the dawn of time they have been here, helping to shape the course of humanity and living openly among them. Just because they have always existed, however, does not mean they have always been accepted. Tensions in the United States steadied until ten-year-old pyrokinetic Nathan DiSario obeyed his inner demon and assaulted his classmates. While the nation grappled with the implications, Nathan was quietly hidden away. Now, after years of suffering in foster homes and hospitals, America’s leading Genetian rights advocate is giving him an opportunity. The offer is simple: join the exclusive Hero’s Program at Adirondack University and be reintegrated into society as a reformed and productive member. No strings attached. A perfect offer, however, does not mean a perfect ending. While Nathan is eager to leave his past behind, he finds it not as simple for others, or himself, to forget. It is clear that Nathan cannot make the journey alone as classes refer to his assault, classmates hold grudges, and social situations prove to be challenging. Worse yet, the demon is whispering again, whispering of freedom and fire.

The Dark Side of Glory by Richard McMahon

In this mystery/suspense novel set during the Korean War, Matthew Clark, the biographer of a respected and highly decorated Army general, learns that there is a hidden side to his life, involving a brutal, covered-up murder, a secret mistress, and an abandoned illegitimate daughter. As he delves deeper, Matthew discovers an baffling mystery and a tragic love, in a world of surprises where nothing is at it seems. 

Tracing the general's earlier career during the occupation of Japan and through the early days of the Korean War, Matthew follows the lives of four principle characters: Philip Coursen, who appears to be the perfect Army officer, but with a disturbing dark side, Miriam Coursen, equally perfect Army wife, who may hide a secret agenda, Calvin Carter, an idealistic young West Pointer, beset with guilt as a result of his clandestine affair with another officer's wife, and Samantha Winstead, the beautiful, vivacious cause of Calvin Carter's discomfort. The biography takes a personal turn for Matthew, as he finds himself drawn into the story when he falls in love with the young woman who claims to be Coursen's daughter.

A young man fought in a war where he experienced events and saw sights that he would have never thought possible. His wife lovingly supported him from home where she bore him his first child. The two grew up quickly in a world where the written word was all they had to comfort one another.
