“Ready Brain” — A Great Website To Help You Keep Your Brain Stimulated.

by Anura Guruge

The creator of this fun & stimulating Website, Larry Mager, sent me an e-mail last week about his Website and how it came to be.

To quote Larry: “After being laid off from my teaching job several years ago, I was pretty low. I’d lost a job I loved, and didn’t know what I was going to do next.

But then a funny thing happened. My neighbor came to me desperate to find a tutor for her son. I offered my services as a temporary solution. Fast forward two years later and I’m running my own tutoring business and making progress with my mental fitness website, Readybrain.net.

I’ve never been happier, and I want to help those going through a tough spot in their careers feel like I do“.

I sure like what Larry is doing.

His premise is the same as my “A ‘Think’ A Day, Keeps Alzheimer’s At Bay” books. He even talks about it, on his home page, using terminology similar to what I advocate. So, yes, I am very happy and delighted to be able to promote this effort. Great job, Larry.

I like the Sudoku. I don’t know how to play Blackjack (and, alas, there are no instructions as yet) but it looks interesting. You definitely should explore this Website. You will find it rewarding.

My BIG, Very BIG — 471-Page — THINK Book — Now Available, Worldwide.

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE and study. Link to Amazon below.

Link to Amazon LISTING for this BIG boy.

The family. The BIG book differs from the other two in that it contains 365 sample answers. That is what makes it SO big.

So, for those that have made fun of me that my book are are on a diet, and keep on getting skinnier and skinnier.

Well I fixed that with this book. A full 471-pages long and we are talking good size 7″x10″ pages (and not ones that are small).

Took me 18-months to write and proof it. The longest I have worked on a book — ever!

Yes, I wrote it BEFORE my other two THINK books, BUT the proofing was a bitch. So, I spun the other two out and continued labouring on the BIG book.

Well, it is out. A true labor of love.

Check it out. I will arrange for FREE eBook downloads after Easter.

Francis says the darnest things

Available from Amazon (worldwide) as an eBook or Paperback.

It is the definitive insider’s guide to Pope Francis’ visit to Washington D.C, New York City and Philadelphia in September 2015. Check it out. Amazon has the descriptive blurbs so I won’t regurgitate them here.

Did a lot of research for this book and that, as with some of my other pope books (e.g., Popes and the Tale of their Names), is what sets it apart. Lots of information that is not common knowledge. I enjoy the research! This book, like so many of my others, was basically an excuse for me to do the research. I don’t see a point of doing research if you don’t share it with folks.

This, in the end, proved to be a long book. 170 pages, 7″ x 10″, in paperback form and 213 pages as an eBook.

Given that the pope will arrive in D.C., from Cuba, on September 22, 2015, I had a very HARD, immovable deadline. I wanted to get the book out a month prior to his arrival. So in the end, given that I didn’t finish my previous book till mid-May, I only had 3 months to write this book — though I had started doing some of the research earlier in the year. My goal was to have it published a month ahead of the pope’s arrival. I missed that by a day, but I am not too upset by that. This book was a lot of work and for the last 6 weeks I was working heads down whenever I could — BUT at the same time trying to make sure that I spent time with the kids and took them places they wanted to go (like ‘Polar Caves‘ & ‘York Wild Kingdom‘ last week). The kids, actually, are kind of funny about my books. They are so used to me writing and having books published that they think it is the most normal thing in the world. So yesterday, when I told Teischan (9) that I had finished my latest book, her words were: “Oh, good! That book took you forever to write. You have been working on it for 3 months!” Wow. The expectations I have created. Three months is plenty of time to get a book done. Yikes.

I am taking at least a 2 week break after this book. For a start I need to spend time with the new camera I plan to get — hopefully ordering it this week. I do have a list of about 5 book titles in my head. Tempted to write a book about Buddhism next! So the sequence would be … popes, popes, orgasms, popes, Buddhism. That is me. Versatile. There is, however, a dynamite ‘pope’ book that I want to write. So it is going to be a tussle. PLUS, a new resolution. Going forward I am NOT going to work on a book everyday! I am going to take 2 (maybe 3) days OFF a week. Yes, I will still write — as in blogging etc. — BUT it will not be on book. That way I can get some other stuff done. So that is the plan.
