Summary

It was Devin Galaudet’s job to take the ashes and pour them into the waters of Cadiz, Spain after his father’s death. Carrying them across Spain by car, train, and backpack, this was their swan song, their “buddy picture” come to life. Half a mile from the Mediterranean, though, Devin lost his father’s ashes. Standing in the middle of a windy cobblestone street in Old Town Cadiz, he wondered what the hell just happened—not just in that moment, but the forty years prior.This is a wild-eyed history of secret family stories that includes fifty stolen cars, sacred African fertility dolls, a Darth Vader mask–wearing junkie, a mysterious secret family, a Playboy magazine found in a sewer hidden next to toilet paper wrapped downers, a Vegas hooker with one impressive breast, a hero’s journey, and traveling across the world with a black jug that contained his father in a rolling suitcase.A wickedly funny memoir that is part adventure and part tender reminiscence, 10,000 Miles with My Dead Father’s Ashes will make you laugh, cry, and yearn for your own Spanish adventure.

    Out of Your Hands provides a complete guide to deciphering all aspects of the hand: its shape, palmar lines, and fingerprints. Beleta not only provides practical interpretations such as personality traits and relationship prospects but also discusses the markings on the hand that provide mystic insights.When you look at the lines on someone's hand, you are looking at that person's journey of life and the map of their character and fate. Although palmistry is considered a science and each line on the palm represents a certain meaning, it is also known to be another channel for psychics to gain information, because touching or feeling the hand brings a vibration to the clairvoyant and thus becomes a form of psychometry.By understanding the markings on the hands, you will gain insight into personality traits, as well an understanding of a possible destiny. The insights gained though palmistry can improve your life and your chances of future happiness.

    Joining the ranks of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, You Are a Badas*, and F*ck Feelings comes this refreshing, BS-free, self-empowerment guide that offers an honest, no-nonsense, tough-love approach to help you move past self-imposed limitations. 
     
    Are you tired of feeling fu*ked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unfu*ked version of yourself. ''Wake up to the miracle you are,'' he directs. ''Here's what you've forgotten: You're a fu*king miracle of being.'' It isn't other people that are standing in your way, it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive, it's yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself. 
     
    In Unfu*k Yourself, Bishop leads you through a series of seven assertions: 
     
    I am willing. 
    I am wired to win. 
    I got this. 
    I embrace the uncertainty. 
    I am not my thoughts; I am what I do. 
    I am relentless. 
    I expect nothing and accept everything. 
     
    Lead the life you were meant to have—Unfu*k Yourself.

    Think and Grow Rich

    Think And Grow Rich has earned itself the reputation of being considered a textbook for actionable techniques that can help one get better at doing anything, not just by rich and wealthy, but also by people doing wonderful work in their respective fields. There are hundreds and thousands of successful people in the world who can vouch for the contents of this book. At the time of author’s death, about 20 million copies had already been sold. Numerous revisions have been made in the book, from time to time, to make the book more readable and comprehensible to the readers. 
    The book details out the most fundamental questions that once bothered the author, Napoleon Hill. The author once set out on a personal quest to find out what really made some people so successful. Why is it that some people manage to remain healthy, happy and financially independent, all at the same time? Why, after all, do some end up being called as lucky? The answers, no wonder, had to be no less than revelations. 
    For more than a decade, the author interviewed some of the wealthiest and most successful people in the world. It was based on what author learnt in the process from all these people, when asked about how they achieved not just great riches but also personal wellbeing. The author formulated hundreds and thousands of answers, into concise principles which when acted upon, many claim, can help one achieve unprecedented success. 
    The author has in many places narrated short stories and examples that help explain the concept at hand in an engaging manner. Think and Grow Rich teaches not just concepts but also methods. It is not a book that a reader can use for one time consumption. The book, even author recommends, has to be read one chapter at a time and in sequence. Several readers and even some motivational speakers claim to have been reading this book over and over again, few pages at a time, for a long time now. Till date, it remains the number one self help book in the world, as far as sales are concerned! 
    About author: 
    An American journalist, lecturer and author, Napoleon Hill is one of the earliest producers of 'personal-success literature’. As an author of self-help books, Hill has always abided by and promoted principle of intense and burning passion being the sole key to achieve success. Hill has authored numerous books among which Think and Grow Rich has been his most well-known works and had sold over 20 million copies back in the 1930s.
