The World Book Awards Selection Committee has chosen "No Matter What" by Sandy Howarth, "Forgotten Hollywood, Forgotten History" by Manny Pacheco, and "The Mindful Investor: How A Calm Mind Can Bring You Inner Peace and Financial Security" by Maria Gonzales and Graham Byron to receive the prestigious Gold Award for literary excellence.
"No Matter What" is Sandy Howarth's guide to living with an autistic child detailing the experience that has been gained from her son Steven. The book has been written to assist and offer support to other parents and families of children with Autism so that they too
will benefit from what she has learned.
The book covers the diagnostic process, concerns of parents, coping strategies, teaching methods, behaviour strategies, research being carried out on the subject, and recognizing educational needs. It also talks of finding an appropriate educational environment and offers practical guidance in this area. It offers guidance in teaching body awareness, developing life skills, building an understanding of the environment and everyday situations.
Nothing grabs the mind like a finely crafted film. Memorable lines strike an instant impression, and classic imagery provides celluloid art for us to enjoy time and again. Manny Pacheco has studied motion pictures for the stars of yesteryear, he presents a review of timeless films, which also uniquely capture seldom told accounts of America's story. Bypassing the legendary stars from the Studio Era's Golden Age, "Forgotten Hollywood, Forgotten History" focuses on the character actors and actresses that consistently delivered stellar performances, and it offers a bold fresh new take of our collective past.
The most recent market meltdown saw trillions of dollars disappear from the North American economy, and the financial markets drop more than 44% from their highs. Daily volatility was immense, with swings of up to 1,000 points in a single day. A vicious cycle of fear and greed caused panic and suffering for individual investors, investment advisors, and pension fund managers alike.
"The Mindful Investor" shows you how to use a single tool-Mindfulness meditation-to achieve clarity, focus, and peace of mind with your finances. Oprah, Eckhart Tolle, Phil Jackson, and Tiger Woods have done much to bring meditation out of the mystic shadows and into the mainstream. Google even offers meditation classes to employees. In this book, you will learn how to use Mindfulness and how to combine it with sound financial planning principles-no chanting or patchouli required.
