The Life Cycles Revolution by Neil Killion

Let Neil Killion take you on another date with destiny with his fascinating book The Life Cycles Revolution.  This book continues the journey begun in Life Cycles and expands on the theory.  This is so that you can begin to 'know yourself' and start controlling your own life.

According to Neil's theory, we live in 'symbolically repeatable twelve-year cycles' with two important years in which fate plays an unusual part.  These are the first year of the cycle, the 'Year of Revolution', and the seventh year of the cycle, the 'Year of Broken Pathways'.  In the 'Year of Revolution' we face upheavals and new beginnings.  The 'Year of Broken Pathways' is marked by challenges and obstacles. Neil illustrates this hypothesis by showing how these years affected the careers of many famous people, such as Charles Darwin and Tony Blair.

Significant years include the ages of twelve, twenty-four and thirty-six.  In these years, you are likely to face an upheaval and the start of a new cycle.  The ages of seven, nineteen, thirty-one, and so on, are likely to bring changes of direction and challenges. Neil encourages readers to examine their last 'significant' year and see how fate affected them.  This will help you to understand your life and improve it.

It's certainly a fascinating theory, but this is a large book and I have to admit to finding it a bit complicated and esoteric at times! I felt that it required in-depth study and I didn't have time to go into it in enough detail, even though Neil kindly sent me a free copy to review almost a year ago, so I feel pretty guilty.  Luckily, I can keep it and continue to study it. Next year is one of my 'significant years,' so it will be interesting to see what happens.

Trafalgar The Untold Story of the Greatest Sea Battle in History by Nicholas Best

This is an interesting book with vivid descriptions of the actual battle with accounts from those involved.  It is well-worth reading for anyone who wants to learn more about Nelson and the battle. I especially liked the depiction of Lord Nelson. This was a moving and well-researched history.

I received this free ebook from Net Galley in return for an honest review.

What to Say and How to Say It Discuss Your Catholic Faith with Clarity and Confidence by Brandon Vogt

Many Catholics and, indeed, Christians avoid discussing religion like the plague. Controversial subjects, such as abortion and why there is suffering
can be especially difficult, but it is certainly better to feel confident about talking about these topics with people who disagree than avoiding them. Brandon Vogt shows Catholics how to defend their beliefs comprehensively and with excellent arguments.

I like his books, and I will read more of them.

Sisters in Life and in Death. Review of Women of the OSS. Sisterhood of Spies by Elizabeth P. McIntosh

Young and brave, the women of the OSS organised resistance groups, committed sabotage, forged documents and encoded and decoded messages, as well as being involved in many other espionage activities. This book is based on over 100 interviews with men and women who served in the OSS and the CIA and with writers, scholars and historians.  Elizabeth P. McIntosh does justice to the women who fought for freedom in this fascinating book.

She tells exciting tales about these 'sisters', including the stories of Maria Gulovich, who led soldiers to freedom across mountainous terrain through snow and bitter weather, Countess Ramanones who reported on the gossip of the Spanish aristocracy, Cornelia Dodson, who met the future fashion designer Emilio Pucci to ask him to search for Mussolini's missing diaries, and Virginia Hall, who only had on leg but didn't that affect her clandestine activities. McIntosh also writes about exciting operations, such as Operation Sunrise which led to…
