Book description…

Did something happen to us thousands of years ago that stopped us from living the life we were meant to live? Things are not what they seem to be. If history repeats itself, then we may find out that what we perceive as reality today will be obsolete in the future. We no longer believe that the world is flat. We no longer worship the sun or the moon and the stars. We no longer worship the God of love or the God of war, the multiple gods. Most of us worship one God and there are 4,200 different ideas of who this God is and what He does. Everyone wants certainty. We want it to be the way we believe it is so we don’t have to think about it. But, we live in an uncertain world. Should we embrace uncertainty? Should we take back control of our lives and be responsible for our own decisions? Are we stagnated and unable to move forward into a better life because of our beliefs? Maybe it is time for us to adapt to our new conscious mind, to think and analyze. There are so many possibilities that we can’t even conceive of simply because we don’t try. Are we all wrong and our future will not be anything like it is today? Join the author on his continuing journey to find himself in a lost and chaotic world. The only thing for certain is that we are uncertain and there will always be something more.

Book description…

Above all this dog agrees to give love and affection. Depression after the loss of your lifelong companion, blindness, cancer surgery, advancing age and its effects on your entire body – These are common occurrences in our lives and are often the source of stress and anxiety. As a physician, I see daily the consequences of these events on my patients. Quite often the results are devastating, contributing to further illness and reducing not only the quality of life but also how long we live. But what if the being faced with these events wasn’t human? What if the species was canine? Would the results be different? Can we learn from another species’ experience? At age 13 my canine son, Tucker, would be faced with these events. His response to these life challenges is detailed in this book wherein the reader will hopefully find the answers to these questions. Science has already told us that pets make us healthier and that pet owners live longer than those who do not share their lives with another species. Just holding an animal raises the level in both species of the pleasure hormone, oxytocin, and lowers the stress hormones secreted by the adrenal glands. Animals, and especially dogs, are said to live in the moment, something human beings, laden with anxiety and stress, are often not able to achieve. Tucker’s Eyes relates one dog’s experience with adversity and is not meant as a scientific work on animal behavior. Tucker’s experience and recovery, however, bears similarity to many other animals who have also made startling recoveries. His life story is meant as an example from which the reader may want to draw useful lessons. In this way, Tucker continues his life mission to provide comfort and love to all.

As a young child, I could see and hear witches in my closet. This was the first clue something was wrong with me.

After that my schizophrenia manic-depression, depression and panic attacks took over and my drug and alcohol abuse began. This is a story of a woman who had no hope. At age 45, I found the power, with the Lord’s help, to recover from drugs, alcohol and my mental diseases.

It was thru my faith and trust in God that I was healed. I will do everything I can for God and Christ because they gave me a new life.

Introducing Howie Keller, author of The Fork In Your Road

“I was new to writing a book. I knew I had the writing talent, yet I was green to the world of publishing. I looked over different outfits, and Outskirts seemed like the most complete, and protective of my integrity and rights. Boy, am I glad I went with OUTSKIRTS PRESS. Things went very well. When I got stuck, they helped all they could, and between them and a hired pro computer expert, I got things all together and everything went smoothly and without delays. They are very professional, and very supportive, not to mention knowledgeable about every little thing you need to do to have your book published the way you want. Not the way they want. Big difference when you write. It’s your book, it’s you. They get it bigtime. I am working hard on my first murder mystery novel, and when it’s done I know they will help me make it as good as it can be, I will need them to do a cover and know they will KILL IT, no pun intended, well maybe a little one. Seriously, shop around, I bet you will find what I did. Best of luck to all authors out there, work hard and stay humble.”

Introducing Randall Bennett, author of Taking Up the Sword

“All in all, I was very impressed with the exceptional job your group did on my book and the cover pages were fantastic and have received notice from other Authors and Publishers.”

Randall Bennett became a Special Agent in 1987 and has received numerous awards and commendations, including the FBI Director’s Award for Excellence in International Terrorism Investigations, The Diplomatic Security Service Special Agent and Employee of the Year, The U.S. Department of State Award for Heroism, Spain’s Medal of Merit with Distinguished White Cross, several awards from the Pakistan Ministry of Interior, the country of Ukraine, and others from the U.S. Marine Corp, the CIA, DEA, ATF, U.S. Secret Service, the U.S. Coast Guard, and many others. He is currently retired but continues to provide security expertise overseas as a contractor for the Diplomatic Security Service.

Product description…

With humor and other times through the heartbreak and drama that accompanies the loss of friends from violent acts of terrorists, Randall Bennett’s memoir reveals his evolution from a new Special Agent to one of the most experienced in the U.S. Government. Bennett and his various teams approached each mission with intense focus, courage, and compassion. Taking Up the Sword relates the wide range of his adventures, from searching for narco-terrorist operations in the Colombian jungle with the true Tarzan of the Amazon, to rescuing abandoned family pets and a baby gorilla while protecting the American citizens in Kinshasa, Zaire, to risking his own life trying to save Wall Street Journal Reporter Daniel Pearl. It includes the actions that led to the capture of “The Dirty Bomber” Jose Padilla, as well as his nearly six years in Pakistan and a tour as head of security for the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Iraq. Bennett survived bombings, rockets, and assaults against himself and those he was sworn to protect throughout his highly decorated career, all while doing a job he loves. With an original and fascinating perspective, Special Agent Bennett takes you behind the scenes—to the jungles, deserts, mountains, and exotic back streets of foreign countries—where these elite and highly trained Special Agents do things that books are written about and movies are made for—quietly and often without recognition.
