Flip the SWITCH: How to turn on and turn up your mindset

By PJ McClure / Genre: Advice & How-to / Rating: 4.9 out of 5 stars

Revised

“This book taught me principles that changed my life! “

Self-help books have given us instructions for 50 years on how to have everything from work/life balance to our dream life; however, simple success in life seems to elude so many.

The problem is not usually in the self-help book itself because some of the great teachers like Anthony Robbins, Jim Rohn, and Stephen Covey poured their expertise into the books. The problem is in the mindset of those of us reading! Without the right mindset, none of the improvement will take hold.

In Flip the SWITCH: How to Turn On and Turn Up Your Mindset, PJ McClure shares the results of his 12-year quest to understand our mindsets and how they hold the key to personal growth, self-improvement, and the success we all seek, by introducing you to the S.W.I.T.C.H. formula.

The Black Dog and The American Woman

By J. D. Reid / Genre: Action & Adventure / Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars

The Black Dog and The American Woman

“This is a great story and really introduces a different culture.”

The Black Dog and the American Woman is one of those stories that transport the reader somewhere new and rarely experienced. The scene is set on an eco-Tour somewhere on the upper reaches of the Cuyabeno River deep in the Amazon rainforest of central Ecuador. A group of tourists has arrived and is just settling into camp as dark clouds gather and a ferocious black dog runs through the tangle of the jungle in hot pursuit of its prey. On one level, it is an interesting and often thrilling tale told of an eco-Tour gone bad; but it is much more than that. As the fine balance of life and death is revealed in the canopy above them, and in their fearful flight up the river, the reader is immersed in the reality of the jungle as few stories of this type have done before. As stated in his remarks, the author has direct experience in this regard; there is a suggestion some aspects of this story might even be true, and it certainly reads like it. The writing is reminiscent of Somerset Maugham’s short stories of the Far East as well as Joseph Conrad’s of the Malay Peninsula. It is a morality tale in which good and bad, like life and death, are in near equal balance.
