It’s a Long Way to Malta – FREE

It’s a Long Way to Malta
Paddy Cummins

Malta is a feast to the eye and a tug on the heart. Pastel colored rocks, dry stone walls, little farms of greenery, cute little inlets with multicolored fishing boats, delightful baroque architecture, magnificent church domes, a perfect climate, a leisurely pace of life, charming people, all embraced by a warm blue Mediterranean.
It has become my color postcard, but now I must share it with two million other visitors who come each year, lucky like me, to have discovered this little Heaven.
“Paddy Cummins has created a gripping and emotional book that captivates at every turn of the page. Endlessly fascinating, tensely absorbing, with humorous anecdotes. This is classic travel writing – a brilliant read.”

Lying (Kindle Single) – FREE

Lying (Kindle Single)
Sam Harris
4 star nonfiction

As it was in Anna Karenina, Madame Bovary, and Othello, so it is in life. Most forms of private vice and public evil are kindled and sustained by lies. Acts of adultery and other personal betrayals, financial fraud, government corruption—even murder and genocide—generally require an additional moral defect: a willingness to lie.

In Lying, bestselling author and neuroscientist Sam Harris argues that we can radically simplify our lives and improve society by merely telling the truth in situations where others often lie. He focuses on “white” lies—those lies we tell for the purpose of sparing people discomfort—for these are the lies that most often tempt us. And they tend to be the only lies that good people tell while imagining that they are being good in the process.

Do You Speak Dog? – FREE

Do You Speak Dog? How to Easily Train Your Dog By Communicating With Him On HIS Level
Lee Dobbins
3+ stars

Even the most unruly dog can be trained if you just know how to talk to him!

If you are a dog owner, you probably already know how challenging dog training can be. Dogs have their own personality and their own ideas about what they want to do and it’s not always what you want them to do. Couple that with the fact that most people aren’t born being able to simply “whisper” to dogs and get them to do their bidding and you have a recipe for frustration.

All dogs are not created equal so it stands to reason that not all dogs should be trained the same way.

In fact, in order for dog training to be successful, you have to learn how to talk your dogs language. Not just “dog language” the language that your specific dog talks.

The mistake that most people make with dog training is to try to get the dog to understand them, when they should be working to understand the dog. And that’s what this book will help you do – talk to your dog in a language that HE will understand!

Once you do that, you will find that dog training is not only easy and fun but you will quickly be able to turn your dog into the obedient companion you always wanted.
