File Size: 2909 KB
Mark was born on the third of July. He grew up believing his birthday had no meaning other than the day he was born. At the end of the school year in the fifth grade, his strict but fair teacher, Mr. Herzog, tells Mark about a great battle that happened on his birthday. His teacher called it, “The defining moment in American history.”
Mark celebrates his eleventh birthday followed by America's independence in none other than Independence, Missouri. Although it is the best birthday and Fourth of July of his life, Mark realizes the true meaning of war, the sadness.
Born on the third of July is about a kid struggling with not only his own identity, but also the identity of America.

Steve Jobs's Secret Project
File Size: 314 KB
It was the spring of 2010. Steve Jobs had come to terms with his illness and fate. Instead of succumbing to it, he embraced it. He assembled the greatest scientific minds of our time into a group he affectionately called, The Super Seven.
The task The Super Seven undertook was ambitious and ambiguous. Something attempted by many great men including Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison and even Harry Houdini, but with little results.
After several months they finally create The Last App, which attempts to answer the questions that have haunted mankind since he wondered where his place was in the universe.
By fate or chance the mysteries of the human existence are bestowed on one peculiar man who reluctantly visits a remote warehouse in Palo Alto, California. There, not only does he discover the fragile balance between life and death, but also why mankind’s unquenchable need to understand his origins sometimes leaves him with more questions than answers.

Celebration reigned with the election of Democratic President Barack Obama. Change was in the air. A prosperous new era promised progress. Didn’t happen.
The dominance of greedy consumption, predatory management and ever increasing debt has crushed hope as 99% of us fear unemployment, homelessness and loss of the American Dream - yet 1% realize unprecedented wealth.
This does not have to continue. Many writers suggest directions to reclaim our economy. There is no quick route to prosperity, and these short essays chronicle suggestions and progressive thoughts of several economists.
Now, if the polarized quagmire of political intransience will allow cooperative action, the sun can shine again.

“I feel my book exposes the most basic need in all men after divorce, that is, the overwhelming desire to find some semblance of happiness, well-being, and ultimately, closure. It is my hope that after reading this book, you will realize that you are not alone and all men and women can find new meaning and purpose to their lives.”-- Michael L. Eads
The Expert Review
“Michael is open and sharing about his vulnerabilities and growth so that one can almost feel that he is sitting with you as a good friend who is there only to share as much of his experience to help one find some sense of direction in unknown and uncharted territory.”
– Susan Sterling, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist
The title of Eads' book, "A Man's Feelings," might imply that it's only for male readers. That's not true, he said.
"More women than men have been buying the book, for their sons or friends who are going through a divorce — or even for their ex-husbands," said Eads.
The title was inspired by lyrics from the song "Shame on the Moon," written by Rodney Crowell and recorded by Bob Seger: "Until you've been beside a man, you don't know how it feels."
Eads explained, "Men deal with it by not dealing with it."
Women tend to talk — or vent. Men withdraw.
