Get out of my way fool, I'm enlightened


Hitch a ride to freedom with the NY Times best seller "get out of my way fool, I'm enlightened". I. B. Wisdom's new book shows you how to "jump to the front of the line through the power of radiant light". With verbal aplomb not seen since Jesus, Wisdom takes us on an exhilarating ride of conversational repartee and Jedi like skill that leaves slack jawed yokels standing back in awe as he takes over whatever situation he's in. Voted in High School as the least likely to have a third eye, Wisdom shatters the "meek shall inherit the earth" myth with balls to the wall spiritual muscle flexing which leaves Arnold Schwarzenegger. claiming "I'm a girly man". "When I realized I could knock people over with my halo, I immediately surrendered my power over to the highest good and this book was born.", so states Wisdom in the intro. Regardless of your spiritual inclination, Get out of my way fool, I'm enlightened is destined to become a new thought classic.

Water, the next oil


What could be more important to the continuance of life than water. Increasing news articles, mostly negative about the polluting, wasting, or drying up of water resources has brought this issue into the forefront as it should be. This beautiful book, Blue Planet Run, practically jumped off the shelf at me. Its oversize dimensions, superb photographs and graphics tell the worlds water situation with force and clarity as well as an organization that is doing something about it to boot. Here are a few facts from their website:

1.1 billion people in the world do not have access to safe drinking water, roughly one-sixth of the world's population.

2.2 million people in developing countries, most of them children, die every year from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene.

Half of the world's hospital beds are filled with people suffereing from water related illnesses.

In the past 10 years, diarrhea has killed more children than all the people lost to armed conflict since World War II.

An estimated 25% of people from cities in developing countries purchase their water from vendors at a significantly higher price than piped water. In some cases, at the cost of more than a quarter of their household incomes. read more>>
