Warrior Wisdom - Ageless Wisdom For the Modern Warrior by Bohdi Sanders

I was fortunate enough to read an advanced copy of "Warrior Wisdom: Ageless Wisdom for the Modern Warrior" by Bohdi Sanders to provide an endorsement on back and inside cover. When the book came out, I read it again. It is that good! In fact, I can't say enough good things about this book, I enjoyed it that much.

First of all, it is readily apparent that Sanders and I have studied much of the same things over the years. While we have not studied the same martial arts, we have studied much of the same warrior literature that

Atlas Shrugged

Atlas Shrugged has an extremely black-and-white quality; either you are an embodiment of highest virtues or you are unredeemably evil. There is no middle ground. All the characters in this book are as if they had come from some sort of a Baroque opera. No doubt, Atlas Shrugged would have benefited, if it had had a better editor.

Like Albert Einstein the physicist (and the philosopher), Ayn Rand has an absolute belief in the law of

An Appreciation of Charles Webster Leadbeater, Clairvoyant Author

As I prepare ezine articles I am surprised by the output of information from people I appreciate. I knew Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854-1934) as a result of a visit to a used bookstore in Kansas City in 1987 where I picked up three of his books about the occult. During research for this article I found that a wealth of material flowed from his pen. He produced 40 book volumes plus a plethora of pamphlets and journals. The

Philosophy Book Review - The Philosopher

Most intelligent and well read folks know who Alan Turing was, as he is historically significant. He helped crack the Enigma Code that the Germans were using in WWII. He also is known for his work in computer science, because he was one of the first thinkers leading up to the invention of the computer as we know it. But it you really think about it, Alan Turing was a thinker, not just a mathematician. He was ahead of his time,

The Four Way Test

He surveyed the way his company did its business, which was the sale of aluminium pots and pans. The nature of the industry was fraught with unethical business practices. To bring the business out of bankruptcy He knew that he had to change the way business was conducted. Ultimately he developed a very simple business philosophy that all employees were to follow in all of their business dealings with customers,

10 Books That Screwed Up the World - And 5 Others That Didn't Help

10 Books That Screwed Up the World: And 5 Others that Didn't Help By Benjamin Wiker, Ph.D. published by Regnery Publishing, Inc. This book was deeper than my normal tastes and abilities, but after two "intellectual" friends recommended it and I saw the title, I couldn't resist. I have not been a student of ideologies. I had only a cursory knowledge of the authors and works this book addresses, yet I found it to

The Science of Getting Rich - You Can Effortlessly Become Rich With Mathematical Certainty

This article is about a book titled "THE SCIENCE OF GETTING RICH" written way back in 1910 by a man named Wallace D. Wattle. The principles promulgated by this man if followed, will make you rich with mathematical certainty. For the principles are not philosophical but pragmatical.

He stated that "There is a thinking stuff (God or Supreme Being) from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

Nietzsche's Genealogy of Morals - The Evolution of Meaning

When we talk about genealogy, the first thing that comes to mind is, of course, kinship, lineage and ancestry - and aptly so, for genealogy is the study of all these things - family ties and family trees, kin and ancestor, bloodlines and relations.

There is, however, a book that uses genealogy in quite a different way from how we've always come to
