    This book '100 Facts About Giving' was birthed out of prayer; and it is the very first piece of work of the author, which is full of Spirit-filled nuggets and facts. The book actually seeks to uncover all the benefits which accompany the act of giving, and also to address all the countless controversial questions and issues which confront it. Such as why is it that I give but I do not receive as I should? Is giving compulsory? Is tithing compusory for the New Testament believer of God? I am afraid to give because the world is full of evil etc. Yes, the assurance is that, people with such mind-baffling questions are not far from knowing the truth, because the book has provided the right answers to such questions, backed with bible scriptures to address them accordingly, and also to make it safe and balanced for the listener. The ultimate goal of the author is to see you begin and continue to receive heavenly window blessings through the power of giving. He also believes that giving, which in some versions of the bible is translated as kindness or charity, as captured in Galatians 5:22, ‘’But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, Longsuffering, kindness, Faithfulness,’’ should not only be a part and parcel of some persons, but it should rather be accepted by all as God-given timeless opportunity to bless all those who willingly practise it in season and out of season. In the final analysis, the author hopes to achieve the following;   
    1. Those who once were givers will be inspired again, and remember their first love with zeal in the ministry of giving;   
    2. Those who currently practise the act of giving will be better encouraged to continue to do so without ceasing.  
    3. Finally, to inspire and challenge new souls to join this divine club of givers. Stay blessed!

    This is a 3-book bundle, which addresses various subtopics, including but not limited to these: 
    Book 1: ADHD is a condition in the brain many people are somewhat familiar with. 
    However, when it comes to the specifics, the majority of us are still left in the dark. The main essence of ADHD is missing when people just think that you’re hyperactive and unfocused. There is way more to it. And not only is so much more to say about the causes of ADHD, but about the consequences as well. 
    For example, people with ADHD are more prone to addictions or suicide. There is medication for ADHD, but there are also other methods that can help contain the symptoms of the disorder. Moreover, people with ADHD can have specific strengths, too, that other people are lacking. 
    For all these reasons and more, the author of this book has decided to address some of these issues and give you a better grasp of what ADHD is, where it comes from, and what it means in someone’s everyday life. 
    Book 2: There are many misconceptions about ADHD. We are here to sort them out. 
    In this book, various topics will be included, like: 
    Children with ADHD versus grownups with ADHD. 
    Diagnosis analysis and thoughts about the dangers or benefits. 
    The question of whether or not ADHD can disappear in a person as he/she grows older. 
    And many other subtopics. 
    Book 3: What is executive function? 
    Can video games help people with ADHD? 
    Questions like these have been researched and put together in this book. You will learn about many aspects of ADHD and the side effects of the condition that you may have never heard of before. 
    If that is you, then I encourage you to start reading or listening to this book.

    "Christopher de Bellaigue has a magic talent for writing history. It is as if we are there as the era of Suleyman the Magnificent unfolds." —Orhan Pamuk, Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature Narrated through the eyes of the intimates of Suleyman the Magnificent, the sixteenth-century sultan of the Ottoman Empire, The Lion House animates with stunning immediacy the fears and stratagems of those brought into orbit around him: the Greek slave who becomes his Grand Vizier, the Venetian jewel dealer who acts as his go-between, the Russian consort who becomes his most beloved wife.Within a decade and a half, Suleyman held dominion over twenty-five million souls, from Baghdad to the walls of Vienna, and with the help of his brilliant pirate commander Barbarossa placed more Christians than ever before or since under Muslim rule. And yet the real drama takes place in close-up: in small rooms and whispered conversations, behind the curtain of power, where the sultan sleeps head to toe with his best friend and eats from wooden spoons with his baby boy.In The Lion House, Christopher de Bellaigue tells not just the story of rival superpowers in an existential duel, nor of one of the most consequential lives in human history, but of what it means to live in a time when a few men get to decide the fate of the world.A Macmillan Audio production from Farrar, Straus and Giroux.
