Summary

“Coming out. Coming in. Coming home.” 
 


Adam Prashaw’s life was full of surprises from the moment he was born. Assigned female at birth, and with parents who had been expecting a boy, he spent years living as “Rebecca Danielle Adam Prashaw” before coming to terms with being a transgender man. Adam captured hearts with his humour, compassion, and intensity. After a tragic accident cut his life short, he left a legacy of changed lives and a trove of social media posts documenting his life, relationships, transition, and struggles with epilepsy, all with remarkable transparency and directness. 
 


In Soar, Adam, Soar, his father, a former priest, retells Adam’s story alongside his son’s own words. From early childhood, through coming out first as a lesbian and then as a man, and his battles with epilepsy and refusal to give in, it chronicles Adam’s drive to define himself, his joyful spirit, and his love of life, which continues to conquer all.

    The education of our young ones is one of the most important things we can offer them as parents.  We want to ensure that they are growing and developing on track and in the way that they should.  As you watch your children grow, you want to do everything you can to help them be successful in the world.  Part of helping them be successful is giving them both a head start and the ability to be prepared for their formal education.   
    Even if your child is or will be participating in preschool, we know that the greatest learning will occur in the home where your child can have one on one time with your child.  Your child will learn much faster if you take the time to help your child learn essential skills.   
    We all know that toddlers are a little difficult to teach sometimes when they don’t like to sit and listen to you talk.  With that in mind, we’ve developed twenty games that will help teach four important subjects that are entertaining and should keep your child having fun while also learning important new things. 
    In this book we will address and talk about four essential subject matters that we feel are important for your child to be familiar with before starting formal education.  Here’s what we have included in the book: 
    Shape Learning Games 
    Color Learning Games 
    Number Learning Games 
    Letter Learning Games

    April 2017 marks 20 years since Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad first made waves in the Personal Finance arena.It has since become the #1 Personal Finance book of all time... translated into dozens of languages and sold around the world.
    
    
    
    Rich Dad Poor Dad is Robert's story of growing up with two dads — his real father and the father of his best friend, his rich dad — and the ways in which both men shaped his thoughts about money and investing. The book explodes the myth that you need to earn a high income to be rich and explains the difference between working for money and having your money work for you.
    
    
    
    20 Years... 20/20 Hindsight
    
    In the 20th Anniversary Edition of this classic, Robert offers an update on what we’ve seen over the past 20 years related to money, investing, and the global economy. Sidebars throughout the book will take readers “fast forward” — from 1997 to today — as Robert assesses how the principles taught by his rich dad have stood the test of time.
    
    In many ways, the messages of Rich Dad Poor Dad, messages that were criticized and challenged two decades ago, are more meaningful, relevant and important today than they were 20 years ago.
    
    As always, readers can expect that Robert will be candid, insightful... and continue to rock more than a few boats in his retrospective.
    
    Will there be a few surprises? Count on it.
