<b><i>The Monk of Mokha </i>is the exhilarating true story of a young Yemeni American man, raised in San Francisco, who dreams of resurrecting the ancient art of Yemeni coffee but finds himself trapped in Sana’a by civil war.</b><br /><br /> Mokhtar Alkhanshali is twenty-four and working as a doorman when he discovers the astonishing history of coffee and Yemen’s central place in it. He leaves San Francisco and travels deep into his ancestral homeland to tour terraced farms high in the country’s rugged mountains and meet beleagured but determined farmers. But when war engulfs the country and Saudi bombs rain down, Mokhtar has to find a way out of Yemen without sacrificing his dreams or abandoning his people.

Tell me honestly, how many times have you purchased a pair of pants that are a few inches smaller than your waistline, think you may fit into those once you lose some weight? If you are guilty of doing something like this, you are not alone. For starters, stop trying to force your body to take on an unnatural shape. Don’t try to slim down just because you want to look like those models on the billboards. And for heaven’s sake don’t starve yourself to shed that stubborn fat. You will only end up disappointing yourself with the lack of energy and sagging skin these crash diets cause. While it’s certainly not right to hate your body if you are obese, you can take up a diet that doesn’t starve you, and offers ample nutrition while leaving you feeling energized.</em></p><p><em>Many people have dreamt about a diet without a strictly written menu for every day. There is a need to focus on a well-balanced diet that offers tasty and diverse food while at the same time boosts your health and keeps your fit. Believe it or not, the Mediterranean diet meets all these parameters and is considered to be one of the healthiest dietary patterns in the world. Additionally, it serves as a general set of guidelines to nudge you into a healthier, happier lifestyle rather than listing off a series of foods that cannot be eaten.</em></p><p><em> You will be able to open up a whole new world for yourself and understand more details about the Mediterranean diet, such as the benefits, the tips, and rules you need to follow, the recipes, and a 14-day plan. Why not try the recipes in this book, there is nothing to lose—except for some bad habits that are! Enjoy the journey.</em></p>

Beck provides a guide to the Holy Land for Christians with explanations of the biblical significance of important sites.

Product Description
Customer Reviews
Innocents Abroad is a travel book which humorously chronicles the trip Twain called his "Great Pleasure Excursion," on board the chartered vessel Quaker City through Europe and the Holy Land in 1867. The excursion was billed as a Holy Land expedition, with numerous stops and side trips along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, such as the train excursion from Marseille to Paris for the 1867 Paris Exhibition during the reign of Napoleon III and the Second French Empire, a journey through the Papal States to Rome, a side trip through the Black Sea to Odessa, and finally culminating in an excursion through the Holy Land. Twain recorded his observations and critiques of the various aspects of culture and society which he encountered on the journey, some more serious than others. Many of his observations draw a contrast between his own experiences and the often grandiose accounts in contemporary travelogues, which were regarded in their own time as indispensable aids for traveling in the region.<br />Samuel Langhorne Clemens (1835-1910), better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humorist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. He is best known for his two novels – The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, but his satirical stories and travel books are also widely popular. His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned him praise from critics and peers. He was lauded as the greatest American humorist of his age.
