Summary

NOW Living the Dream: A Tale of Surviving Cancer by Daksha Trivedi is a testament to her brave journey through an aggressive cancer which brings to light the power of hope as she learns to accept uncertainty. Daksha’s story of endurance began long before receiving an unexpected and a devastating diagnosis of cancer in her lower oesophagus. She had hardly come to terms with the painful loss of her twin brother from advanced cancer only six months earlier but finds courage to bring solace to her elderly widowed mother who had lost both her beloved sons. Her journey takes us through her diagnosis, the challenges of treatment decisions and recovery from a life- threatening oesophagectomy. Her deeply moving story, whilst that of survival embraces the reality of her condition and conveys profound themes of relentless determination and a commitment to positive strategies at a time of pain and suffering. This book highlights the patient’s and the family’s distress and encourages health care professionals to find ways of engaging with people from different cultures, especially where there is a family history of cancer. Whilst Daksha faced numerous challenges during a long and a difficult period of recovery, she, together with her family found ways of getting her life back. Her remarkable story is an inspiration to patients, families and practitioners and provides a valuable insight into finding courage to cope with adversity. It acknowledges a dearth of research evidence on oesophageal cancer, though great strides are being made to detect early conditions that can increase a person’s risk of developing cancer. This poignant and human story draws together everything Daksha and her family have realised about living well in the moment. She also discovers the true meaning of faith, love and hope as she begins to talk about cancer. In her honest and inspiring account, she shares her learnings to live a life full of purpose, being deeply grateful for the gift of time. This book was completed in the shadow of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The author intends to donate proceeds from the sale of this book to appropriate charities.

    “I just read The Nasty Man. Damn! I can’t believe my eyes. This technique is crazy! The girl literally surrendered to you. I can’t wait to try them.” – Jack
     
    Do you know there are men who don’t know how to keep a relationship fun for years? There are men whose girlfriends fall out of love because they were not able to keep the momentum and craziness going.
     
    This book is a crazy book and it’s about being the naughtiest man in the world and using these naughty, dramatic, crazy, stubborn, etc. techniques to get a woman forever addicted in the relationship and make it last longer. In fact, forever.
     
    Do you know a lady (even if she’s a 15-year-old virgin) is naughtier than all the men in this world combined? Let me tell you, nothing is naughty in the eyes of a woman.
     
    She already knows, but she’ll pretend she doesn’t to avoid you seeing her as a loose girl. Women love to protect their naughty image until the man sneaks into the naughty side by acting naughtier than them.
     
    In real life, a man can never be naughtier than a woman. All he needs to do is to act and pretend to be naughtier than her and she’ll start opening up her naughty and nasty side.
     
    She needs to be comfortable with you before she can open up. To achieve this, if you don’t already know yet, read book 4. It’s about keeping a fun conversation and never lacking what to say.
     
    This Book, The Nasty Man, Will Teach You the Following:
     
    How to get a woman addicted via misunderstandingHow to get a woman madly in love via tease and withdrawalHow to sneak into her panties and get her in the mood via textHow to get her to yearn for you every single time even if you’re quarreling with her, etc.All these and many more will make the relationship fun, crazy, etc. and it will last longer even if it’s a long distance relationship.
     
    If you follow the raw instructions in this book, your woman will be addicted in having you in her life. This book is your lifesaver in keeping a relationship intriguing, sexually fun, and enthralling.
     
    Also, if you’re in a long distance relationship, this is a perfect book for you to keep her in love and always yearning to have you by all means. It’s addictive when you apply the contents shared here in a conversation. Be warned!
     
    Everything here is raw and nasty, so let’s get started since you’re old enough to see naughty things. Oh! You’ll see some quarrel and harsh comments made by some nice guys when the content was posted online.
     
    Warning: This book will sound dumb to nice guys because everything about relationship advice for men sounds dumb to them.
     
    They are men who pretend to be responsible, so this book won’t make sense to a nice guy. In fact, starting from chapter 1, it will appear childish, but it works like magic.
     
    Let me ask you a question. Would you prefer a relationship advice that looks childish but works or one that looks mature but doesn’t work?
     
    Let me make it clear before you purchase this book, what is inside this will reveal naughty things about women and how to handle them—guaranteed!
