Explore the captivating history of Hammurabi. The story of Hammurabi is the story of 43 years jam-packed with conquest, temple- and wall-building, irrigation efforts, and lawmaking, but it’s also a story of broken relations and rising and falling empires. It’s a story of betrayal and shifting alliances, a story where even the gods take a backseat to the matters of common men. It’s a tale that’s both thousands of years old and, interestingly enough, just as contemporary as it was when Hammurabi still drew breath.

I believe this book is now more of an academic reference than something you sit down and read. All I can grade it on is the translation and binding. The cover and binding looks to me like something from the 70s.. but that’s not a bad thing. I like the sterile feel of this book.

In the world we live in, we barely have time to pay attention to what we need. As a result, we have lost touch with ourselves and in the process, lost our values. This has created a void within us; a void we try to close with more stuff, more activities, and more company. Minimalism is a way to return to consciousness of choices and start living with intention. By adopting minimalism, you will live a more rewarding life.

This book – really asks you to examine your life, your desires and what you really need in your life to feel content and secure. I like that it is not a one step and done book. The authors have been through the process and understand how time consuming and involved you need to be to make it work for you. Neither do they adhere to a one-size-fits-all approach to minimalism – rather encouraging you to explore what works best for you in your life – and also with the idea that this concept may need to be fluid depending on your life situation and goals.

In 1777, Captain Isaac Pearson joined the British Army when he believed the Colonial Rebellion would be dispatched with effortless haste. Taking a few American lives was an agreeable price for the pampered aristocrat who believed his actions in the conflict would afford him honor and glory. Yet, the path Captain Pearson rode was neither honorable or glorious and the price he would pay was beyond his imaginable fortunes. Phantom Regiments, ruthless shadow units, British Redcoats, American militia, and crazed men of the occult race to acquire a mysterious Iroquoian artifact which can defeat time.

This is the first one I met, and read from the first to the last page, almost in one go. I cannot judge the accuracy of the given facts (as other reviewers question), but I have a seen in it a lot of material that gives food for thought. I do think I have gained substantial overview, and a lot of handles to follow up on the individual stories such as the Dakota uprising. So, it fulfilled my purpose.
