    Summary Bundle: Memoir & Discovery: Includes Summary of The Glass Castle & Summary of The Hidden Life of Trees 
    From the Description of "Summary of The Glass Castle". 
    "You should never hate anyone, even your worst enemies. Everyone has something good about them. You have to find the redeeming quality and love the person for that." - Jeannette Walls 
    The story gets interesting when Jeannette could not stand living with her parents anymore. It was time for Jeannette and her brother to fend for themselves and once they found the necessary resources, they fled from home. The Glass Castle is a story of courage, risking everything to live a happy life and that no matter how grim the situation might be, there's still a way out. 
    From the Description of "Summary of The Hidden Life of Trees". 
    "When you know that tree experience pain and have memories and that tree parents live together with their children, then you can no longer just chop them down and disrupt their lives with larger machines." - Peter Wohlleben 
    Believe it or not, trees and humans are not that different. They live together with their children, they communicate and support each other. It's crazy to even think about it because we have grown with the idea that trees don't amount to much but they actually do. That's why The Hidden Life of Trees is such a great read, it reveals a mysterious world filled with interesting secrets and facts about this tall plant.

    A dangerous escape from East Germany and a Mystical Awakening in Indonesia - this book is the beginning of a life-long spiritual journey. 
    The Mysterious Disappearance of the Wondering Mind is part one of Transcendental Journeys - A Visionary Quest for Freedom, a series of books by Omananda. In this first book, the author takes the dangerous road to physical freedom. He escaped from East Germany before the Berlin Wall fell and freed himself from the communist oppression in the socialistic society where he grew up.  
    This book not only covers his travels in parts of the USA, Central America, Asian countries, and India. It also goes into the detail on how the author actively participated in the political underground resistance movement during his former life in the GDR. When Torsten E. Klimmer aka Omananda arrived in the West, he first began to see glimpses of a magical world that eventually culminated in an unexpected spiritual awakening. After this rough wake-up call, he had to integrate this new information.  
    This Omananda audiobook has interludes of shamanic sounds. Character names have been changed to protect the individuals' privacy. Everything else remains authentic to the facts as they were experienced. All books by this author can be found at: www.omananda.com, where you can also get the eBook, watch related videos, read the author’s blog, and subscribe to the podcast.

    "Since the Stone Age, the walkabout has been an Aboriginal rite of passage. It is when adolescent boys wander aimlessly into the bush on a journey with no particular destination. During this time, they make the spiritual transition from boy to man. It's a time for self-assessment and deep thought, when he can learn about himself without the influence of his elders, friends, or family. It's a physical and psychological journey.I didn't look like an Aboriginal adolescent as I set off from Belfast on my café racing Moto Guzzi, but looking back, I see that the same determination drove me to set off on a journey of self-discovery. I was twenty-one and, wanted to go 'somewhere' for 'some time' and, well, for 'something'!This desire drove me to break free from my mediocre, middle-class existence and reach out for the unknown. The demand was irresistible and bound me to an ancient ritual that many young men before me had taken for adventure."Come with Chris Donaldson on this roller coaster 'ride' of self discovery and you will not be disappointed as there is a near-death experience around every corner!40,000 plus miles ( not counting 10,000 more crewing on an ocean-going racing yacht) through 33 countries there are enough harum-scarum life lessons to keep you turning those pages.All along the way there are formidable road blocks: Trigger happy boy soldiers with AK-47s in war-torn Africa, the Sahara Desert, The Andes, waves the size of Everest that threaten to sweep him over-board, hepatitis E in south America and PTSD when he got home - and that's only the half of it.This odyssey, seen through the eyes of someone in their early twenties fresh for the Belfast Troubles and lived out in the early 1980s, is raw in its exposure but thoughtful in its deliberations and revealing about the regimes and cultures it passes through."

    Hubert de Burgh rose from obscure beginnings to become one of the most powerful men in England. He loyally served first King John and then the young Henry III and played a crucial role in saving the Plantagenet dynasty when it was at its most vulnerable. During King Johns disastrous wars in France, Hubert held Chinon castle against the besieging French for a whole year. He remained loyal when the Barons rebelled against John and, when they invited French invaders to intervene, Hubert successfully held Dover Castle for the king against a siege led by the French Prince Louis. After Johns death, he held it for the new king, 9-year old Henry, against a renewed siege. In August 2017 he struck the final blow against the French invasion, which still held London, when he defeated a powerful fleet carrying French reinforcements at the naval Battle of Sandwich. Hubert continued to serve Henry III, making important reforms as Justiciar of England and leading military campaigns against the Welsh Prince Lewellyn. He eventually lost favour due to the machinations of his rivals and narrowly avoided execution but was eventually reconciled with his king and able to die a peaceful death. Incredibly, this is the first full-length biography of this remarkable man.

    Imagine you’re one of 75,000 people working in a huge company, and the CEO wants to talk to you, one-on-one, to get to know and understand you. That’s what Monty Moran did 20,000 times as he built the extraordinary culture that took Chipotle Mexican Grill from a regional burrito chain to a Fortune 500 superstar. In Love Is Free, Guac Is Extra, Monty shows how he used curiosity, vulnerability, love, and a unique understanding of the true meaning of empowerment to build a distinctive and wildly effective culture. From his teenage days befriending homeless people at a Colorado Dairy Queen to his nuanced navigation of a complex co-CEO relationship, Monty demonstrates a relentless humility and desire to understand the person across from him. This is not your average leadership book. This is a book about business leadership executed in a way you’ve never encountered before, by becoming the best version of yourself.

    “In a childlike style that reflects the excitement of those dramatic, danger-filled days,” a young French girl portrays her heroism during World War II (Publishers Weekly). Such was the sleepy nature of the Normandy town of Sainte-Mère-Église and such was the hostile nature of the “vast area of marshes and lowlands” surrounding it, that it seemed immune from the terror and chaos of war. Indeed, it seemed hard to imagine the local people ever hearing more than the distant rumblings of war or suffering more than those minor discomforts and humiliations which plague a rural community largely left alone by an Army of Occupation. The evening of June 5th, 1944 seemed like any other, yet for Geneviève Duboscq, not yet twelve, and her five-year-old brother, that evening would become their longest night—one they would never forget. An American paratrooper appeared on the Duboscq’s doorstep quickly followed by other battered emissaries of freedom. The Duboscq’s house became an emergency shelter; their knowledge of the region the difference between life and death, success and failure to those liberators from the sky. My Longest Night, with exemplary simplicity and poignancy, depicts D-Day and what followed in a way that it has never been presented before. Geneviève Dubsocq emerges as a remarkable young woman whose story will touch the hearts and minds of all who read it.“One of the most personal descriptions of D-Day that we are likely to have.” —Christian Science Monitor
