Mark Cloud has his doubts. He’s not sure if he’ll ever feel at home in Fred, Texas. He’s not sure that he can work up the nerve to declare his love to the girl of his dreams. He’s not sure he will survive another ride with Darnell Ray, Terror of the Back Roads. And he’s not really sure he buys the whole God thing. Which is an uncomfortable position for the son of a Baptist preacher.
This award-winning novel is a moving and hilarious tale set against the vibrant backdrop of the 1960s and rural America. It is the timeless and classic story of Everyteen in the hands of a master storyteller.

E ating low carb is an exercise in trade-offs.
On one hand, powerful science and millions of success stories attest to the amazing fat loss and health benefits of low carb diets, like Atkins and Protein Power. Indeed, carbohydrate restriction may just be a silver bullet capable of preventing or reversing dozens of diseases, including type 2 diabetes, obesity, and even cancer.
On the other hand, cutting carbs kinda sucks!
Admit it. All our favorite treats are carb-filled: donuts, cakes, piping hot oven fresh bread, etc. These foods are not only scrumptious, but they’re also superabundant, cheap and easy to prepare.
* Going “low carb” means you may have to give up these cherished foods, perhaps forever. Yikes!
* What’s more, eating healthy “real” foods, like fresh meat and non-starchy vegetables, can be waaaaay more expensive than eating cheap processed carbage.
* Preparing such meals can be also confusing, messy, and even dangerous, if you don’t know your way around the kitchen.
If you’re on Atkins or the Paleo diet or any other carbohydrate controlled plan, you probably can relate. People react differently to this challenge.
Some find solace in a handful of “go to” meals. For instance, a weekly breakfast menu might read:
* Monday – bacon and eggs
* Tuesday – bacon and eggs
* Wednesday – bacon and eggs
* Thursday – bacon and eggs
* Friday – make it stop!
Desperate for variety, others embark on a mad quest to collect as many recipes as possible, hoping to find the answer in a million cookbooks.
Others just add more carbs back into their diets. But this “carb creep” can tragically undo the weight loss and cause yet more frustration. Argh!
What’s the real problem, here?
The real problem is that we lack SKILLS. We’ve never been trained how to think effectively about cooking low carb. We need more than just recipes; we need to master the fundamentals. As the old expression goes: “Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day; teach him to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime.”
We need to “learn how to fish,” metaphorically speaking, when it comes to preparing and cooking low carb.
The $64,000 question is: who can teach us these skills?
The answer is simple: Alan Kosloff.
An environmental lawyer by trade, Alan is also a highly regarded, self-taught chef, whose recipes have wowed friends and associates for decades. Alan is a food obsessive who’s so devoted to his craft that he apprenticed himself to work in a restaurant just to learn the nuanced secrets of Egyptian-French fusion cuisine.
For several years, Alan has used a controlled carbohydrate diet to manage health issues, and he’s truly mastered the fine art of low carb cookery.
In “The 12 Essential Low Carb Cooking Skills: Plus, 49 Simple, Scrumptious Low Carb Diet Recipes,” Chef Alan reveals the secrets he uses to whip up masterworks such as Fennel, orange, olive and arugula salad; Boneless Rib Roast (caveman style); and Merzula en Salsa Verde, a classic dish from the Basque region of Spain.
Even more critically, Alan “teaches you to fish” by guiding you through precisely what you need to do to stock your pantry, fridge and freezer; what equipment you’ll need; and what special techniques you can leverage starting today to save money, time and hassle… all while vastly increasing the diversity and general scrumptiousness of your repertoire.
Free yourself permanently from the “bacon and eggs yet again” blues. Let Chef Alan help transform your kitchen… and your low carb life!

M annie Jackson is President of Boxcar Holdings LLC, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Naismith Memorial Basketball of Fame, Chairman of the Board and owner of the Harlem Globetrotters, and Chairman and a founder of the Executive Leadership Council. After a brief professional basketball career in the National Industrial Basketball League and with the Harlem Globetrotters, Jackson went on to distinguish himself in corporate life as a senior executive with Honeywell Inc, and as one the first African-Americans to serve on multiple (six) Fortune 500 boards of directors. Jackson, a former All-Ten point guard and captain of the University of Illinois basketball team, has two honorary doctorate degrees. He built a career at Honeywell as president of that company’s telecommunication business, which he built as a venture start-up by acquiring seven regionally interconnected companies and sourcing a highly publicized technology agreement with Sweden’s LM Ericsson Co. Jackson went on in his career to rescue the Harlem Globetrotters from bankruptcy in 1992, when he became the first African-American to own outright a major sports and entertainment organization. In a short time the organization was revived as a dominant global brand reaching top quartile Q-ratings and accruing fourteen consecutive years of growth at an average annual rate of 14 percent. Mannie Jackson’s inspirational memoir is an odds-beating story that spans his history-making careers in sports and business and chronicles his journey from being born in a rain-soaked railway boxcar to leadership and significance.
