“I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I would recommend this book for all ages.”
Linda Weaver Clarke, author of the new mystery series “The Adventures of John and Julia Evans.”
One of The Dawning of Power trilogy. Echoes of the ancients’ power are
distant memories, tattered and faded by the passage of eons, but that is
about to change. A new dawn has arrived. Latent abilities, harbored in
mankind’s deepest fibers, wait to be unleashed. Ancient evils awaken,
and old fears ignite the fires of war.

A fter so many years of social interaction you have common sayings you gravitate to quite often. You have your “can’t argue with that” line. Your “you need to get out more” line. Your “I call it like I see it” line. You find no reason in brushing up on your humor when “that’s what she said” interjections win over social circles just fine. Performing a stand-up routine is not something on your list of things to try this year and you are kind of past the “I’m going to be overly outgoing” shtick, yet the charming nature of being quick-witted is something you and the rest of us still find appealing.
In comes a collection of a couple hundred phrases and words that is not exactly a how-to book. In fact it was never meant to be a book at all. Years ago, a very good looking young gentleman, going by the pseudonym Upward, started noting remarks he found inherently playful and somewhat common in conversation for only his personal use, until recently when he decided to pack them up, add examples, and share them with the self-improving public. They are phrases to laugh at. Most of them you will recognize. Now you will have the lines in your metaphorical back pocket to nonchalantly pull out when needed. In essence, a manual to ease your l’esprit de l’escalier. Socially potent fire, if you will.

W ealthy individuals are often quoted as saying, “Money isn’t everything.” Those of us who are less fortunate think it sure would be nice to have all our financial problems solved, so we can focus on the rest of that “everything.” Having a lot of money does seem to result in a whole new set of problems, however – ones which many of us would welcome.
In this text, Cal Andrews attempts to settle the matter of whether or not money is capable of purchasing happiness. The lives of ten men who acquired fortunes are examined, with a focus on how they felt about their wealth and in what ways it changed them – Men such as Kurt Cobain, Howard Stern, Andrew Carnegie, Jesse Livermore, and Ted turner. These ten guys are each quite unique, having different worldviews and coming from different social backgrounds.
The author draws a remarkable conclusion from these case studies. From it, he derives a formula for managing wealth in a manner which will keep a person free from the problems which many have experienced from becoming rich. Ignore this formula at your own peril.
