I’ve seen a few substantial pick up audio programs and es around this year. We’ve witnessed systems on self-confidence, conversation, relationships, advanced PUA tactics, approaching, and more. Some of them were high quality and some were terrible. The PUA world is much different than it was 3 years back. Instructors like Zan and Matador have totally modified the PUA community.
There’s a good product out there for college students called “Conquer your Campus”. I tend to like experts who don’t charge too much for their products and offer a great deal of value. This one is reasonably priced. I strongly dislike getting ripped off. You can learn to become a topin a short period of time. There is a lot of confusion about who has the best stuff in the community.
So if you’re a college student looking to pickup more girls, I say you check this out. It’s not the best for older guys but younger dudes will like this e. It’ll show you how to pick up chicks on campus and at college bars. It’ll definitely help you stand out amongst the herds of corny, drooling guys around your school. I’m not sure what site they are selling this at now but I’m sure you can find a copy floating around the Internet. My of the Conquer your Campus e by Mark Redman and Christian Hudson is a pretty good one. There are others I’d check out if you’re older but hey – maybe you want to go visit your little cousin’s college to try some of this stuff out!
A good book review will also give a brief assessment of the author’s capabilities and how he manages to keep the reader engrossed. A brief background of the author is also provided and discussions of his previous works are also presented. His credentials and area of expertise can also be discussed.
The first area to be considered in a review is the subject of the work and the broad field and/or genre in which the book fits. Comparisons may be drawn to similar genre of books. A book review can either be a comprehensive overview or a detailed analysis. In most cases the purpose of the book is analyzed. A book should meet the objectives it intends to achieve by striking a chord with the readers. If at the end the book achieves its objective that the author intends to communicate with the reader than the book can be expected to achieve a positive review. The final assessment ends with either a buy or skip recommendation.
Writing reviews is consumes a lot of time and a thankless job. In most cases the reviewer might ask why I write them. But the ultimate aim should be to make the writings of the review enjoyable by everyone. “Writing crystallizes thought” should be the motto of the reviewer. The book reviews are a way of reflecting on the book and putting some of my ideas on the work in order maybe for future reference.
Some to writers of book review are:
- Make notes while reading through important passages in a book. Have clear idea has to what are the contents in the book you intend to highlight
- Readers of the book review are generally people who want to buy the book. So put the message across subtly in the final assessment.
- Mention the name of the author and title clearly at the beginning of the book review.
- Mention about the parts in the book you liked or disliked.
- A good review should express the reviewer’s opinion and persuade the reader to share it, to read the book, or to avoid reading it.
Some interesting book reviews can be found on the internet.
I instantly fell in love with this’s beautiful cover – which was a sure sign that I was going to love the . With this , I did, indeed, up finding some wonderful stories covering such topics as romance, love sadness. The author has a beautiful way with words – making them feel as though they simply flow gracefully through the story. It made each short story incredibly touching and an absolute joy to read.
What I was not expecting, however, was to actually read a book that would make me stop and think about my life and exactly how I view the things that happen to me. In Sadness, for example, the story starts off with such unhappiness and lethargy and even anger, only to be completely turned around by the things that happen in life – the message being clear – never think that nothing good can come along – always believe. It really is all about how you view a situation and how you react to it. You are, in most cases, your own worst enemy and your biggest supporter.
This book made me think and made me find a willingness to not believe that everything is always bad. There can be goodness and wonder. You know that a book has touched you when you can’t stop thinking about it after you have read it and Wonders by Kevin Hollingsworth is definitely one of those. This book is a keeper that I will re-read again – especially when I feel the need for inspiration.
Disgrace is aof a man’s, even a family’s decline. David Lurie is a university er, the kind of er who was at home with academic material that current course requirements no longer demand. He is also divorced, twice, and even on his best form he has to grapple with the trials and tribulations that his frayed life and career present.
He needs regularand visits a prostitute with regularity, always the same one, and harbours suspicions that he provides her with more than just business. He also suffers from self-delusion. So when he has an affair with one of his students, he really believes that she wants him for what he is, despite his thirty years of seniority. He convinces himself that she is a willing participant. It turns sour. She reports him. There is a committee. He cooperates, perhaps, but not in the way required by mores with which he cannot identify. Conveniently, messily, he resigns. And he loses his benefits.
David goes off to live with his daughter in a rural area in the Eastern Cape. He discovers complexities in the relationship between white and black which were at least less apparent in the urban setting of Cape Town. He is willing to make compromises, but it is not going to be easy.
David and his daughter are then viciously attacked. Motives are clear, and then unclear. Relations between the father and daughter, and between the two of them and their black neighbours become difficult and strained. Old scores are being settled, perhaps. Older scores are being tallied. A new world demands that new details of inter-relation and inter-dependence be drawn, except that for David the art seems like freehand. No-one seems to be able to say what they want or what they feel.
To me, Disgrace seems to be aboutand how we do or do not cope with it. It’s about how we want to continue asserting, for want of a better word, values – assumptions, perhaps – that might no longer apply. We would only know by reading the unspoken assumptions of others and interpreting them correctly. Disgrace is also about vengeance and punishment, about settling scores, about inclusion and exclusion. The story line is strong, but the overtones are stronger.
Disgrace is athat presents individual experience and through that manages to comment on within South Africa and its society, What has changed is not always for the better and what is retained is not always relevant. But these are reactions to assumptions, perhaps, rather than to any external reality, no matter whose it might be. On reflection, the overt simplicity of Disgrace is part of its complexity.
Review – Finding Granddad’s War
It is very fitting thatPublishing ( .com) was the publisher for Jeffrey Badger’s Finding Granddad’s War. As it’s title states, this details the methods and the travels of a young man in search of the of a grandfather he never knew.
Jeffrey Badger was only two months old when his grandfather, Leo Kavanaugh, passed away in 1970. Twenty seven years later Jeffrey Badger began to piece together the life of his grandfather and learn where he had been, who he knew and what some of his experiences had been.
As part of the 9th Army’s 978th Engineer Maintenance Company, Leo Kavanaugh visited 9 countries, trailed almost 30,000 miles and was one man in a unit of 377. Finding Granddad’s War is not about a frontline soldier, action packed with combat stories, but is a deeply personal rebuilding of aexperience, tales and memories from those who were there, and filling in the memories for a grandson who never knew his grandfather.
Badger reached out to many people, finding a little information here and there, but also found and met many of the men his grandfather served with. They told him their stories, personal, funny and painful, which helped him to know what really happened in his grandfathers life. Badger ended up tracking to 17 states and Europe to meet 32 veterans and get their story.
What really is of value in thisis Jeffrey Badger describes how he went about ing this chronicling , what you should do to your own family. This is a great guide that shows just how much information is out there to find, where you can look, and how to go about getting official records.
Thisis a good read for anyone looking to research their own family . I found it to be very entertaining and insightful, getting to hear the histories of so many people that were involved in one man’s life. There are a lot of good resources contained and detailed that will assist in researching individuals histories. Finding Granddad’s War shows how even a beginner with little background knowledge can end up traveling the globe and filling a book with what he learned.
