Many books attempt to teach us how to live this life in love, peace and harmony. However, few thoroughly explain why we encounter outer obstacles and inner conflict. White Lies Dark Truth explains in detail how every person creates a belief system, starting at birth, based upon the influence of others. The ideas and concepts that we accept become belief structures ingrained in our consciousness. There are over six billion people on Earth, and all of them go through life believing as they do because of what they have been told. Each person measures their success and happiness according to someone else's ideas, including those of their parents, their peers, the media, government, politics, and religion- just to name a few. White Lies Dark Truth shows us that our conflicts spring from attempting to take newly discovered truths and fit them into an old belief structure that is made up of repetitions of half-truths, untruths, dogma, and illusions that have been passed down through the ages. The journey of discovery is one of personal transformation and conflicts can be resolved by exchanging truth for the white lies we have been taught. Our view of reality must change, if we are to survive. Based on author's 23 years of research, study, and practice in both Eastern and Western philosophy White Lies Dark Truth: -Focuses on the physical and psychological impediments to happiness, success, peace, love, and spiritual growth; -Challenges the reader to examine their present belief structure; -Guides readers through the self-discovery process; -Helps readers assess where they are now and pinpoint areas in their lives that require change or further development; -Suggests alternatives to traditional concepts, ideas and thinking. Beginning with present awareness, White Lies Dark Truth embarks readers on a journey within. Imagine you are travelling to New York and there are many different routes to get there. The route you take depends upon the point where your journey begins. If you are not aware of where you are, there is a good chance you will choose the wrong route, become lost and frustrated, and have to start all over again. Many topics are covered, including: thought and the mind, the power of the spoken word, love and relationships, marriage, sex, children, food, health and healing, money and politics, spirituality, the Guru or Master, death, and religion as the root cause of racism. Written in an informal manner, White Lies Dark Truth discusses personal and social topics that society as a whole considers taboo. Techniques and exercises given at the end of each chapter will help readers reprogram their minds and even question their own existence. White Lies Dark Truth offers a cleansing for the mind, body, and consciousness. It will help the reader find an abundant source of knowledge and wisdom within their consciousness. This will bring in more awareness, which is the key that opens the secret door to the mysteries of the universe. White Lies Dark Truth is not a spiritual candy for the holistic mind. It carries the required wisdom that can direct the course of humanity towards a higher state of consciousness bringing in love, peace and harmony on our planet.

Foreword by Steven Pinker Blending the informed analysis of The Signal and the Noise with the instructive iconoclasm of Think Like a Freak, a fascinating, illuminating, and witty look at what the vast amounts of information now instantly available to us reveals about ourselves and our world—provided we ask the right questions. By the end of an average day in the early twenty-first century, human beings searching the internet will amass eight trillion gigabytes of data. This staggering amount of information—unprecedented in history—can tell us a great deal about who we are—the fears, desires, and behaviors that drive us, and the conscious and unconscious decisions we make. From the profound to the mundane, we can gain astonishing knowledge about the human psyche that less than twenty years ago, seemed unfathomable. Everybody Lies offers fascinating, surprising, and sometimes laugh-out-loud insights into everything from economics to ethics to sports to race to sex, gender and more, all drawn from the world of big data. What percentage of white voters didn’t vote for Barack Obama because he’s black? Does where you go to school effect how successful you are in life? Do parents secretly favor boy children over girls? Do violent films affect the crime rate? Can you beat the stock market? How regularly do we lie about our sex lives and who’s more self-conscious about sex, men or women? Investigating these questions and a host of others, Seth Stephens-Davidowitz offers revelations that can help us understand ourselves and our lives better. Drawing on studies and experiments on how we really live and think, he demonstrates in fascinating and often funny ways the extent to which all the world is indeed a lab. With conclusions ranging from strange-but-true to thought-provoking to disturbing, he explores the power of this digital truth serum and its deeper potential—revealing biases deeply embedded within us, information we can use to change our culture, and the questions we’re afraid to ask that might be essential to our health—both emotional and physical. All of us are touched by big data everyday, and its influence is multiplying. Everybody Lies challenges us to think differently about how we see it and the world.

* Shortlisted for the 2011 Costa Book Award in the First Novel category * A blazingly original, wildly stylish, and pulpy debut novel "City of Bohane, the extraordinary first novel by the Irish writer Kevin Barry, is full of marvels. They are all literary marvels, of course: marvels of language, invention, surprise. Savage brutality is here, but so is laughter. And humanity. And the abiding ache of tragedy." —Pete Hamill, The New York Times Book Review (front page) Forty or so years in the future. The once-great city of Bohane on the west coast of Ireland is on its knees, infested by vice and split along tribal lines. There are the posh parts of town, but it is in the slums and backstreets of Smoketown, the tower blocks of the North Rises, and the eerie bogs of the Big Nothin' that the city really lives. For years it has all been under the control of Logan Hartnett, the dapper godfather of the Hartnett Fancy gang. But there's trouble in the air. They say Hartnett's old nemesis is back in town; his trusted henchmen are getting ambitious; and his missus wants him to give it all up and go straight.

“Remarkable . . . Scott Lynch’s first novel, The Lies of Locke Lamora, exports the suspense and wit of a cleverly constructed crime caper into an exotic realm of fantasy, and the result is engagingly entertaining.”—The Times (London) An orphan’s life is harsh—and often short—in the mysterious island city of Camorr. But young Locke Lamora dodges death and slavery, becoming a thief under the tutelage of a gifted con artist. As leader of the band of light-fingered brothers known as the Gentleman Bastards, Locke is soon infamous, fooling even the underworld’s most feared ruler. But in the shadows lurks someone still more ambitious and deadly. Faced with a bloody coup that threatens to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the enemy at his own brutal game—or die trying. Praise for The Lies of Locke Lamora “Fresh, original, and engrossing . . . gorgeously realized.”—George R. R. Martin “Right now, in the full flush of a second reading, I think The Lies of Locke Lamora is probably in my top ten favorite books ever. Maybe my top five. If you haven’t read it, you should. If you have read it, you should probably read it again.”—Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind “A unique fantasy milieu peopled by absorbing, colorful characters . . . Locke’s wit and audacity endear him to victims and bystanders alike.”—The Seattle Times “A true genre bender, at home on almost any kind of fiction shelf . . . Lynch immediately establishes himself as a gifted and fearless storyteller, unafraid of comparisons to Silverberg and Jordan, not to mention David Liss and even Dickens.”—Booklist (starred review) “High-octane fantasy . . . a great swashbuckling yarn of a novel.”—Richard Morgan From the Hardcover edition.
