Summary

The innermost thoughts of Simon Cowell's son :'I woke up to find that everyone was all a twitter. By which I mean that Dad's twits and almost the whole world were going crazy with the news that I had been born. Quite right. I'm sure that when everyone is born they think they are the centre of the universe, and with me it turns out to be true. I guess at some point I'll find out why.''Today I met Jeeves. Well, Daddy called him Piers, but I call him Jeeves. He said things like 'And how would Sir like his nappy done up today? Traditional classic fit or a little more snug around the middle for Sir perhaps?' I resolved to ask him for a Scotch on the rocks, just as soon as I could work up the vocabulary.''Apparently I was born on something called Valentine's Day. So, when Harry Bighair came to visit he asked Daddy if they were going to call me Valentino. Daddy answered, 'I'm not going to dignify that with a reply.' Sometimes I wish Daddy would speak his mind more and not just sit on the fence all the time.'

    “Even readers who deem themselves confirmed landlubbers will warm to this charming memoir…[also] offers the fine local color of coastal North Carolina.”—Publishers Weekly 
     
    When Louis Rubin was thirteen, he built a leaky little boat and paddled it out to the edge of the ship channel in Charleston, South Carolina, where he felt the inexorable pull of the water. In his sixties, dozens of boats later—sailboats, powerboats, inboards and outboards—the pull is as strong as ever. 
     
    In the tradition established by Twain, Conrad, and Melville, Small Craft Advisory explores man’s longtime passion for boats. Louis Rubin examines the compulsion that has prompted him and countless other non-nautical persons to spend so much time, and no small portion of their incomes, on watercraft that they can use only infrequently. As his new boat (a cabin cruiser made of wood on a workboat hull) is being built, Rubin tells of his past boats and numerous boating disasters, and draws a poignant comparison between his two passions: watercraft and the craft of writing. 
     
    “A wistful meditation on risk-taking and a longing for a place where time never runs out.”—The Washington Post Book World 
     
     
    “If the point of reading a memoir is to meet a person who is truly good company, and maybe to have a little wisdom rub off at the same time, Small Craft Advisory is a book to read.”—The New York Times Book Review  
     
     
    “In describing the building of his boat he is describing the building of his life, reasserting the shaping value of memory and imagination. [A] gracefully written contemplation.”—Library Journal

    In the presented Audio book, the concept of paap (demerit karma) ) - punya (merit karma) has been discussed at length by Gnani Purush (the enlightened one) Param Pujya Dadashri. In Param Pujya Dadashri's simple words, he has described the concept of 'paap-punya' as giving happiness to others we incur punya and if we trouble anyone, if we hurt anyone by our words, deeds or behaviour, we incur paap. However, if we do pratikraman (whole hearted repentance) we can get rid of paap and bind punya.    What is the detailed meaning of paap-punya? How is it related to incarnation? What are the results of paap-punya? How does one have to face the consequences of paap-punya? What are the types of paap-punya? What role paap-punya plays in the path to Moksha? Can Punya give us liberation?    All these have been discussed by Param Pujya Dadashri in this Audio book on Paap-Punya. Such reading will definitely help readers increase their awareness about paap-punya which will help answer many puzzles in life and get them closer to Moksha.

    Wayde was quick off the mark from the day he was born: two months premature and weighing no more than a litre of milk, his life was in danger. But little Wayde survived and grew to become the world's leading sprinter.
    Wayde van Niekerk tells the extraordinary tale of a boy who defied the odds, time and again. He was small and skinny, but he tackled big rivals on the rugby field. And just when he was about to become a world sprinting star, Wayde suffered a series of terrible hamstring injuries. At one point, he was so depressed he almost gave up athletics for good. But his faith, courage and dedication – along with his magnificent talent – kept him going.
    We learn that Wayde was deeply motivated by his mother Odessa's brilliance as a sprinter before his birth – back in the apartheid era when black athletes were unable to shine on the biggest stage. Wayde's sense of honour also shines through in the story: how he stands up for the weak against bullies, and gives generously to those less fortunate than himself.
    In the climax of the book, Wayde flies his family to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where his greatest moment awaits him.
