Summary

DOING GERMANY is a series of books for those who are looking for an easy read and to laugh. This is the second book, but it can be read without reading the first book. 
 
In the sequel to the best-selling DOING GERMANY, Agnieszka Paletta picks up exactly where she left off. She is still a slave to chocolate and wine, still a Polish-Canadian-lover-of-Italy, still a grasshopper in a new country, Germany. Two years may have passed, but the moose-in-headlights persists as she continues to discover Deutschland. (After two years, what is there left to discover?) Ye, of little faith. Plenty and plenty and then some! And what's more, with many unexpected lessons that come with having a baby and owning a house. 
 
Ever an immigrant in a foreign land, Paletta will take you for a cultural spin as you explore Germany through her Polish-Canadian-Italian eyes. So just sit back and enjoy the humorous, witty ride. (And pour yourself a glass of wine while you're at it.)

    The shocking true crime story of a beloved Hollywood star gone too soon—told by the captain of the boat on which Natalie Wood spent her last night.   Goodbye Natalie, Goodbye Splendour is the long‑awaited, detailed account of events that led to the mysterious death of Hollywood legend Natalie Wood off the coast of Catalina Island on November 28, 1981. It is a story told by a haunted witness to that fateful evening: Dennis Davern, the young captain of Splendour, the yacht belonging to Wood and husband Robert Wagner. Davern initially backed up Wagner’s version of that evening’s events through a signed statement prepared by attorneys. But Davern’s guilt over failing Natalie tormented him.   Davern reached out to his old friend Marti Rulli, and little by little, at his own emotional pace, he revealed the details of his years in Wood’s employ, of the fateful weekend that Natalie died, and of the events following her death that prevented him from telling the whole story—until now.

    WE Americans devour eagerly any piece of writing that purports to tell us the secret of success in life; yet how often we are disappointed to find nothing but commonplace statements, or receipts that we know by heart but never follow. Most of the life stories of our famous and successful men fail to inspire because they lack the human element that makes the record real and brings the story within our grasp. While we are searching far and near for some Aladdin's Lamp to give coveted fortune, there is ready at our hand if we will only reach out and take it, like the charm in Milton's Comus,
    "Unknown, and like esteemed, and the dull swain
      Treads on it daily with his clouted shoon;"
    
    the interesting, human, and vividly told story of one of the wisest and most useful lives in our own history, and perhaps in any history. In Franklin's Autobiography is offered not so much a ready-made formula for success, as the companionship of a real flesh and blood man of extraordinary mind and quality, whose daily walk and conversation will help us to meet our own difficulties, much as does the example of a wise and strong friend. While we are fascinated by the story, we absorb the human experience through which a strong and helpful character is building.

    When Sean Mallen finally landed his dream job, it fell on him like a ton of bricks.Not unlike the plaster in his crappy, overpriced London flat.  
     
    
    The veteran journalist was ecstatic when he unexpectedly got the chance he’d
    always craved: to be a London-based foreign correspondent. It meant living in a
    great city and covering great events, starting with the Royal Wedding of William
    and Kate. Except: his tearful wife and six-year-old daughter hated the idea of
    uprooting their lives and moving to another country.  
     
    
    Falling for London is the hilarious and touching story of how he convinced
    them to go, how they learned to live in and love that wondrous but challenging
    city, and how his dream came true in ways he could have never expected.

    This book introduces the concept of chetana and explains the link between meditation and God. This concept is not specific for any religion. Any person who shows enthusiasm to navigate the unending can practice it. The description of the authors own experiences will make the novel concept reach the people easily. This book teaches one how to look into ones self and have a greater understanding of ones own position before and during the meditation. At the end, readers realize that this kind of meditation is not about learning any techniques, methods, or making stressful efforts to train mind for stillness; but this is rather a simple and peaceful journey. 
    Become an Antarmukh, and feel the difference.
