Commando By Deneys Reitz

(Revised in May 2009) Deneys Reitz was 17 when the Boer War broke out in 1899. Reitz describes that he had no hatred of the British people, but "as a South African, one had to fight for one's... More > country." Reitz had learned to ride, shoot and swim almost as soon as he could walk, and the skills and endurance he had acquired during those years were to be made full use of during the war. He fought with different Boer Commandos, where each Commando consisted mainly of farmers on horseback, using their own horses and guns. Commando describes the tumult through the eyes of a warrior in the saddle. Reitz was fortunate to be present at nearly every one of the major battles of the war. Commando is a straightforward narrative that describes an extraordinary adventure and brings us a vivid, unforgettable picture of mobile guerrilla warfare, especially later in the war as General Smuts and men like Reitz fought on, braving heat, cold, rain, tiring horses, and lack of food, clothing, and boots.< Less

This book asserts the importance to recognize and embrace your current situation. Whatever you're experiencing right now is precisely where you need to be in order to bring you to your next moment.... More > All you've got is this moment in time. Your life is characterized by patterns of stress, anxiety, excitement and ambition. In an easy-to-read format, this manuscript holds people accountable for their situations.

Positive thought patterns create a life that feels good even with the changing tide.< Less
What to Do When You Really Need Money By Daniel Steinberg
eBook (PDF): $3.99
Trying to make money while you’re worrying about money is the equivalent of trying to swim a distance while wearing concrete shoes. You progress an inch or two and get so tired out from the... More > effort that you can’t continue, until you start sinking and gasping for air and the instinct to survive kicks in and you thrash about for another inch or two. Unless you’re really close to shore, the odds of your making it are generally not in your favor. That is the aim of this book: to offer the much-needed perspective someone in a state of financial crisis often lacks, and to serve as rescue boat of sorts, whose job is to drag a ship in a state of distress back home to safe harbors. This book is the result of my personal struggle with living paycheck to paycheck and being completely broke for years; it is my exit story and a record of the lessons I picked up along the way. I hope that you find value in it and share it with others who might find themselves in similar situations.< Less
