inspiring and motivational books that may interest you!
Our main way of supporting this site is through the
sale of books, either physical copies or digital copies through
Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing. We try to make them well
worth reading, and pretty much all of the money that we earn
through them comes back to the site in one way or another.
Here--in no particular order--are the books we have to offer you!
To give you a little bit of background, my doctorate is in
Teaching and Learning--and I've spent the last 25 years learning
all that I can about living life fully and being happy, and one of
my goals with these books is to teach people many of the
principles I've learned. It doesn't matter if the book is a
collection of essays, a novel, or a collection of short
thought-provoking lines to jumpstart your own reflections--each of
the books here was written with great care in order to present
time-tested truths in ways that may help you to apply them to your
own life. Just as I try to design my classes to include more
than the required curriculum and help students to reflect on their
own lives, I tried to write books that are practical and useful,
but still interesting and worth reading.
I've also done my best to keep the prices down as low as I
can--they're not inexpensive on the Kindle because they're bad
books; they're inexpensive because I feel grateful for all that
I've learned and for the opportunity to share it.
