    One of Wall Street Journal’s "Best Books for Science Lovers" in 2015Science is on the cusp of a revolutionary breakthrough. We now understand more about aging—and how to prevent and reverse it—than ever before.In recent years, our understanding of the nature of aging has grown exponentially, and dramatic life extension—even age reversal—has moved from science fiction to real possibility.Dr. Michael Fossel has been in the forefront of aging research for decades and is the author of the definitive textbook on human aging. In The Telomerase Revolution, he takes us on a detailed but highly accessible scientific journey, providing startling insights into the nature of human aging.Twenty years ago, there was still considerable debate of the nature of human aging, with a variety of competing theories in play. But scientific consensus is forming around the telomere theory of aging. The essence of this theory is that human aging is the result of cellular aging. Every time a cell reproduces, its telomeres (the tips of the chromosomes) shorten. With every shortening of the telomeres, the cell’s ability to repair its molecules decreases. It ages. Human aging is the result of the aging of the body’s trillions of cells.But some of our cells don’t age. Sex cells and stem cells can reproduce indefinitely, without aging, because they create telomerase. Telomerase re-lengthens the telomeres, keeping these cells young.The Telomerase Revolution describes how telomerase will soon be used as a powerful therapeutic tool, with the potential to dramatically extend life spans and even reverse human aging. Telomerase-based treatments are already available, and have shown early promise, but much more potent treatments will become available over the next decade.The Telomerase Revolution is the definitive work on the latest science on human aging, covering both the theory and the clinical implications. It takes the reader to the forefront of the upcoming revolution in human medicine.

    Have you been told that your child has autism? If so, you are not alone. The most recent statistics released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2013 indicate that 1 in every 88 children are on the spectrum. This number is up from 1 in 150 children in the year 2000. While the cause of this rise remains under speculation, the prevalence indicates that many families are faced with the same challenges and questions you may have. As the statistics of children diagnosed with autism continue to rise, the information available on the internet also increases. Wading through the masses of information on the internet can be staggering and time consuming.  This book will empower you with the information you need.

The information is empowering and the professional jargon is left out. Angela’s personal advice and understanding is contained in these pages to help you cope and succeed in the years to come. Within this book, you will find an introduction to autism, what you can expect and common difficulties experienced in the areas of communication, socialization, behaviors and sensory issues. Angela teaches you how to support each area in the home and shows you how to develop unique parenting skills needed to successfully communicate with your child.

    The book has got four parts. The first one is basically autobiographical with a view to bring home the readers how Abdul Vahab Sobirov, a Muslim by birth gets so much engrossed in a system he would hardly get any support from his tradition. But Sobirov takes the readers much farther to suggest that the present divide caused by known history will no way affect the imminent fundamental unity of mankind which must usher in a short while from now.     
      Part Two imparts some of the important principles of Yoga teachings. Part Three is the India of Sobir s  dream and aspiration. It also records Indias thick relationship with him.
       The Fourth part strongly urges that Yoga is now a Global Cult and it should undoubtedly unite all peoples on the earth to live in harmony and peace for ever.
       In the appendix part Sobirov has reproduced some valuable information about the values of food stuff we take and should be aware of in our daily food habit.
        Its editor and co-author PD Mishra evidently contributes substantially with a cross-border bond of unity (Yoga) by his intrinsic presence throughout.

    The 5 Phases of The Kriya Yoga Tradition comprises the complete text and contains all of the major necessary concentration-meditation techniques and advanced philosophy of life and sciences needed to guide the practitioner to divine revelations, consorting with the greatest of masters to bring about total transformation to bliss, samadhi, and conviction that you are the whole universe and all it contains. As stated in scriptures, "Be still and know that I am God." You will have awareness of manipulating the breath up and down the spine in the sushumna and mentally touching and activating the physic centers or chakras located along the spine. The breath is the key instrument that is both voluntary and involuntary. This manipulation and visualization of breaths, called pranayama, raises the kundalini from the root chakra to the crown chakra and eventually brings on divine transformation of each and every cell in the body. This practice is scientific as well as spiritual.
