Summary

How to Write about Africa: Practical Analysis on Key Aspects is a book that prepares you for the task of writing about Africa and African subjects-matters. Writing about Africa is not a difficult task, it is, however, usually thought of as simple, too simple, since Africa as a whole has been treated as a giant monolith. This oversimplification of African issues has misled many into churning out articles that misrepresent Africa, insults Africa and, ultimately, misinforms their audience. Drawing from a plethora of columns, scholarly and journalistic texts, events and instances, Joel Okafor sets out to accomplish two things with this book. One, this book debunks so many of the long-held notions on Africa as related to sources and statistics; two, it mentions specific African issues and discusses how to and how not to write them. 
While this book is primarily targeted at people who desire to write about Africa but reside outside Africa, it is, equally, a useful piece for people who just want to read about Africa and for Africans who aspire to write a piece relating to the whole continent. Wherever you are and for whatever purpose you read this book, you are assured of a book that will give you fresh insights and endow your writing with a richer, stronger edge.

    “Entertaining, informative, thought-provoking, mysterious, poetic. Men who read it will surely learn much about themselves, and women—particularly those who are unfortunately misled into thinking of men as “the enemy”—will find it a real eye-opener.”—Ruth Tiffany Barnhouse, M.D., Th.M., Harvard University 
    Robert A. Johnson's classic work exploring the differences between man and woman, female and male—newly reissued. 
    What does it really mean to be a man? What are some of the landmarks along the road to mature masculinity? And what of the feminine components of a man's personality?  
    Women do not really know as much about men as they think they do. They have developed, over the centuries, considerable expertise in the technique of adapting to men, but that is not the same as truly understanding them. Women often labor under the delusion that life is really pretty easy for men, at least when compared to their own lot, and they have no idea what a complicated struggle is really involved in the transition from male childhood to real manhood. 
    As timely today as when it was first published, He provides a fascinating look into male identity and how female dynamics influence men.

    In Architects of Ruin, New York Times bestselling author and conservative historian Peter Schweizer argues that the economic crisis was caused by liberals who used the power of government to create a subprime mortgage bubble that has ravaged the global economy. Rebutting charges that the financial collapse was caused by conservative deregulatory zeal, Schweizer, the author of Do as I Say (Not as I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy, shows that it was actually the result of “do-good capitalism.”

    Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends by Peter Schweizer | Conversation Starters
    
    The #1 New York Times bestselling book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends is about how corruption has been more prevalent in America than ever before. The author Peter Schweizer has been in the war against corruption for many years, and he has many triumphs. In his new book Secret Empires, he tells why the American bank that opened in China was prohibited by United States laws from hiring some family members of the top politicians in China. In contrast, the Chinese bank that opened in America has the freedom to hire whomever it wants. Schweizer also discussed how the media only focused on President Donald Trump's children and their shady transactions while barely questioning the suspicious deals made by the those who are close to Joe Biden, Mitch McConnell, John Kerry, and former President Barack Obama. In different parts of the world, the children of influential and powerful political figures venture in businesses and gain high profits. They may not be good at business, but people want to gain favor from their powerful parents. This phenomenon is relatively new in the United States. However, the relatives of well-known political families may already be dealing with hundreds of millions of dollars. Peter Schweizer's book Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends is deeply researched and filled with astounding revelations. It identifies the public servants who are not worthy of the trust of the American people. This book provides the path towards a more accountable and transparent government.

    What Is the Size of Your Brain?...

    The brain is one of the vastest organs of the human body, yet the most misused. Research shows us that only 1/3 of its parts are used. The only power on earth that can limit you is YOURSELF. Ignorance is one of the strongest powers that keeps you in prison and causes you to fail. I have good news for you: you possess the key to unlock that power and unleash the infinite potential invested in you, it is called self-discovery. Thus, the aim of this book is to demonstrate that, after going through all kinds of phases the human brain is far beyond scientific discovery and their sayings more capable in achieving anything any person wishes as long as the person has the willingness to succeed against all odds, and is in connection with the Creator. The Brain is the lodge of your mind, the siege of your thought, your words, ideas, and imagination; your thinking process and your decision-making. The size of your brain is therefore defined by how you view yourselfyou end up where you are not because of some external forces, but rather by the series of choices you make each day. You have this burning desire to express something; to accomplish something remarkable, to be recognized, to be valuable; do not settle for less. Destiny is to be discovered and not to be decided by people around you. This book highlights: the correlation between brain, mind, and body interaction and brainheart.
