The Fear Beneath – in-depth reader on sharks

Christian Kemper’s readers dive into the fascinating world of underwater predators in his new book “The Fear Beneath”.

Sharks are fascinating but misunderstood animals, often reduced to the role of horror movie predator. To the author, sharks are frightening and beautiful at the same time and epitomize the unknown. Human ingenuitiy grants us the illusion of complete control: from atoms and genes to the destiny of our planet. This makes it especially humbling that these large fish put us back in our place. A shark will eat a human, regardless of whether the human considers themself higher in the food chain. For the shark, food is food.

The non-fiction book “The Fear Beneath” is Christian Kemper’s first English publication on sharks. Previously, his two titles have only been available in German. Many requests from English-speaking friends inspired him to make his books more widely available. This book contains the best material from his first two books and articles. The readers will learn  many fascinating facts such as how few shark attacks actually happen during an average year. The book also raises awareness of the need for conservation as most people are unaware of how much shark populations have dwindled.

When the PAST becomes the FUTUREWhen the PAST becomes the FUTURE  – Life-like, exciting stories based on true events

Rose M. Kuonen’s stories in “When the PAST becomes the FUTURE” are inspired by psychological principles and ancient wisdom alike.

For many, reading is more than mere entertainment; they read because stories give them a fresh outlook on life and offer support in everyday life, ethics and self-awareness. Many readers were prompted to change their way of thinking by the stories they consumed. Rose M. Kuonen’s book could be one of the few to have this kind of life-changing impact on readers. In her story, apocalyptic prophecies come to pass; it seems that mankind is not punished for its sins but that the sins themselves are the punishment. When most people are no longer in touch with themselves, they are deaf to the cries of the environment. Kuonen imagines what the consequences of this would look like.

While the stories in “When the PAST becomes the FUTURE” by Rose M. Kuonen are no doubt exciting, the author’s greatest achievement is conveying important lessons to her readers. Life after the catastrophe forces her characters to focus on the truly important things and to discover a valuable opportunity in the midst of the crisis. Based on true events, the stories are down-to earth and grounded in psychology and ancient wisdom.

SHE Plays Boogie-Woogie & Blues Piano – Advice and exercises for piano players with small hands

SHE Plays Boogie-Woogie & Blues PianoIn their new music book, “SHE Plays Boogie-Woogie & Blues Piano”, Ulrike Gaate and Jan Preston make the joy of playing boogie-woogie and blues music accessible to all piano players.

Boogie-woogie, an intoxicating music style that touches the heart and uplifts the spirit of players and listeners alike, is a male-dominated field. Female pianists are seriously underrepresented because they usually lack a male’s large hands and his strong physique. While these male characteristics are clearly an advantage when playing this style of music, they are not a necessity to become a proficient player. When boogie-woogie, blues, rock, and rock ‘n’ roll elements are combined, the pianist receives the freedom to play unaccompanied and to present a repertoire that is based on their own particular strengths – and small hands do not have to be a disadvantage here. In addition, the rules of improvisation and how to jam along with other musicians are much easier to learn than in complex jazz music.

Thanks to “SHE Plays Boogie-Woogie & Blues Piano” by Ulrike Gaate and Jan Preston, women and girls can now take heart and will be perfectly able to groove and boogie with the best of players by adjusting the notes and licks to a smaller hand with a lighter touch. This book was created to help and inspire female players of all ages to experience the uplifting energy and abundant possibilities of this style.

LUMINARIESLUMINARIES (Full Color) – An amazingly uplifting book of original quotes

Phoenix Marcón teaches the readers of “LUMINARIES (Full Color)” that they already have all the tools they need to live a more fulfilled life.

Life can be terribly tough at times, and some people feel like they do not have it in them to inspire and motivate themselves. They feel like they cannot get back on their feet without outside help. When people feel like they have no friends or family to rely on or help them with their problems, depression often hits them hard. A person can be filled with so much negative energy that they end up in a downward spiral with their self-esteem plummeting into unknown depths. But there is another way out. In this new book, readers will learn how to turn these moments around – by themselves. By seeing how others have pulled themselves out of similar situations, they learn how to inspire themselves intellectually and morally.

The amazingly motivational book “LUMINARIES (Full Color)” by Phoenix Marcón was specially created to suit the modern age. It encourages people to live their lives around five vital elements: Loving, Living, Leisure. Laughter and Learning. The content of this book is easy to understand. There are no complex psycho-babble or outlandish new age terms. The aim of the various ideas in this book simply is to help readers to truly help themselves, and then hopefully to never need another self-help book again. Readers will learn to tap their own inner resources and gain the knowledge that they can be their own wise teachers.
