Not only a gripping memoir about war and the Marine Corps with gut-wrenching and heartfelt scenes, but also an introspective story about life after the Marine Corps and finding your purpose in the world. Letting Go: A Marine’s Journey Through War and His Search for Meaning takes the reader deep inside the authors head, giving them an unfiltered view of his struggles with war, and the difficulty he faced trying to adjust as a civilian to a world out of touch with his values.<br /><br />“I looked inside, compelled to stare, staining the image of a dead body into my memory. I did not deserve to look away. I had to know the awfulness of war; the wickedness of our species.” - Page 162<br /><br />MORE FROM THE BACK COVER<br /><br />Letting Go is an excellent account of a Marine before, during, and after 9/11. Through the eyes of Jeff Sands, he retells his story with brutal honesty, describing what possessed him to join the Marine Corps, his experiences while serving, to include deploying to Iraq during the initial invasion, and the demons he endured while trying to readjust to civilian life. <br /><br />This book was begun as a diary of sorts. It was written to try and understand the chaos that exists inside one’s own head, especially after experiencing war and seeing its effects. It was flushed out over many sleepless nights, and refined over time with clarity. It’s more than just a story about war and struggle, it’s a story about what compels someone to join the Marine Corps, risking his life for something greater than himself. It’s a story about how the Marine Corps molds not only men’s bodies, but their minds. It’s a story about war, and its effects... good and bad. It's a story about heartbreak. And it’s a story about trying to adjust to a corporate world out of touch with the values of the Marine Corps; a world without a purpose. <br /><br />Follow Jeff as he takes you through the streets of Baghdad, giving you an unfiltered description of what he experienced and the injustice he saw. Then, watch him try to adjust as a civilian, eventually leaving behind his job, his marriage, and everything he owns, in order to pursue the ideals that were the reasons he joined the Marine Corps; ideals that were reinforced by war. See how he deals with his tortured mind, eventually teaching himself how to let go. <br /><br />ABOUT LETTING GO: A MARINE’S JOURNEY THROUGH WAR AND HIS SEARCH FOR MEANING<br /><br />Released December 15th, 2014, this is the first book by Jeff Sands about his own life and his own experiences.<br />

Hearing loss affects countless millions of people, yet few sufferers even seek help, let alone try to find a cure. This is the story of a man who took on that daunting task and ultimately invented the world's most successful middle ear implant.<br />Geoffrey Ball's adventure in technology began in the legendary Silicon Valley of California, the birthplace of so many innovations that have transformed our world, and ultimately led him to the mountains of Austria, where he now lives and continues his work. <br />Ball's deafness was diagnosed early, but even as a child he knew that sign language and conventional hearing aids were not the answer. Despite his proficiency in lipreading, he wanted more - a better fix. Meanwhile, Ball never let his disability stand in his way. He became a kind of modern Renaissance man with interests that ranged from literature to sports to music, all coupled with an undeniable talent for entrepreneurship and invention.<br />The author introduces us to family and friends, surfing buddies and lab rats, business partners and fellow inventors, computer and Internet legends, a brilliant, larger-than-life mentor who gave him his start, and the woman who ultimately saved his brainchild. He intersperses insights into technology, funding and business acumen with personal, often humorous anecdotes and fascinating accounts of successes, failures and near misses along the way.<br />Today, every hour, somewhere in the world, one of his ground- breaking devices improves the quality of life of a hearing-impaired person. No one is laughing at the deaf boy now, and we haven't heard the last of Geoffrey Ball.

<h2>Incredible True Holocaust Survivor Stories From World War 2: Accounts Of Holocaust History</h2><br /><b>Get Your FREE BONUSES When You Grab This Book!<br /></b><br />If there is one thing that can be said about humanity, it is that we are true survivors. From wars to natural disasters, man has managed to bring himself back from the brink of destruction. <br /><br />We have thrived over the millennia we have inhabited this earth; from the caveman to the modern civilization we live in today, we have seen and braved storms of all kinds – both natural and man made. <br /><br />Of these many disasters we have faced head on, none can be more telling than the two World Wars. As the names suggest, the whole world felt the impact of these wars, shook from the intangible tremors that spread to the entire globe. The Second World War in particular, was something of a power play, where millions lost their lives because one group believed in the power of their hegemony over all the rest. <br /><br />The Holocaust could, perhaps, be described as the most disastrous and devastating man-made storm the world has ever seen. Called Ho-Shoah in Hebrew, the entire Second World War was nothing but state sponsored murder of those a dictator believed to be beneath him, simply because they were born different. <br /><br />From Jews to homosexuals, millions were persecuted, and it took the western nations coming together to stop this madness. This ‘sacrifice by fire’ – which is what the name itself means – can be taken as a true example of humanity’s darker side, which seeks to control and make others submit to its will. <br /><br />To put it simply, the Holocaust remains a stark reminder of how dark humanity can truly be. It reminds us that given a chance, man has the ability to change into something that is less than animal and it is this capability we have to constantly guard against. <br /><br /><h2>Here Is A Preview Of What You'll Learn...</h2><br /><ul><li>Holocaust Survivor Accounts – An Incredible History Lesson</li><li>Holocaust Survivor Accounts – Shep Zitler: Of Hatred and Awareness</li><li>Holocaust Survivor Accounts – In Hiding: Jeanine Burk</li><li>Holocaust Survivor Accounts – Isak Borenstein: A Trial by Fire</li><li>Holocaust Survivor Accounts – The Terrible Acts of the Holocaust Period</li><li>Much, much more!</li><br /><br /><b>Grab this book today!<br /><br />If war time escape and survivor stories are what you love to delve into, then grab this book now!<br /></b><br /></ul>
Coping With Breast Cancer.

In the mid-nineties, my wife was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, which had metastasized to her lymph nodes. The essay “Coping with Breast Cancer” details what happened in the wake of that diagnosis. We decided to release this composition in the hopes of helping other couples confronted with this terrible disease. <br /><br />Here is a brief excerpt from Coping with Breast Cancer.<br /><br /> In the fall of 1994 we were living the good life. We’d just bought our dream house and moved in the previous July and were looking forward to our first holiday season in our new home. Only one thing placed a cloud over our lives at that point in time. My wife had a mysterious bloody discharge from one breast. She had also lost a considerable amount of weight and I was beginning to become concerned.<br /><br /> My wife was reluctant to agree to go to a doctor but finally I managed to elicit a promise from her that she would go to see a physician the day after Thanksgiving. That morning we got into our car for the drive to the doctor, never suspecting that our lives were about to be forever changed.<br /><br /> I sat in the waiting room while my wife saw her gynecologist. I saw her come back out just a few minutes after she had been escorted back to the examination room. She was pale and said that the doctor had told her we had to go to the hospital at once for a mammogram and that the doctor was calling ahead to get her worked in that day.<br /><br /> She broke down and cried on the drive to the hospital and expressed her sense of dread saying, “The doctor says she’s afraid it might be breast cancer.” <br /><br /> That was the first time I heard the words breast cancer in relation to my wife. They were the scariest words I’d ever heard in my life.<br /><br />This is a 9,100 word essay, and not a full length book. The page count in 6 x 9 format is 37 pages.
