Book Launch and Book Giveaway, Lessons of Life


I'm hosting Ron Millicent, a first time author who has two books out at the same time. 

Ron is giving away one copy of Lessons of Life. To enter, comment below this post, leaving your name and letting me know what interests you about either of Ron's new books. The contest is open to U. S. residents only.

A bit more about Ron...

He claims no advanced degrees in psychology, but he has an insightful way of bringing  `home` the lessons he has learned over several decades. He was raised in Hawaii (before it was a state – go figure). He lived in France as a young man. He taught English – (with absolutely no teaching experience) in a Greek Island. 

He was stranded in Germany- not speaking German – with no money- of any kind.
He came out of heart surgery cracking jokes. And he has been married for 5 decades – same spouse (go figure). He connived a prime posting in the army – and even fibbed about being a carpenter to get out of the rain.

Interesting  fellow – good tales, good insight.

Lessons of Life:
This book was written as a result of my sister saying one day, “You know that to have lived for over 70 years, we must have learned something! That got me thinking:

I was raised in Hawaii – before it was a state; I lived in France for two years as a young man; I have been thrown off a train in Germany in a small town – in the middle of nowhere with no money, and no German language skills; I have been to 16 countries, and about a dozen islands;  I taught English on a Greek island for a few weeks – and did so having absolutely no experience as a teacher; and actually had 
surgeons laughing during a heart procedure. I have been married for 49 years (same woman – poor soul) and have lived from counting quarters to go to McDonalds – to having meals in Paris, Rome – and Athens - -- and then back to McDonalds!You know, I would have to have been a moron not to learn certain things along the way.

Now, assuming you are younger than I am – the odds are pretty good that you can learn something from my experiences, and rambling.  I actually think you can!
You have nothing to lose!  Well, $7.00 something, I guess.  Heck, you can lose that by buying one greasy hamburger – and a coke that is no good for you anyway.
Give me a shot!  I’ll bet you will get some laughs, and – who knows – maybe a little insight.Go ahead!

Successful Habits:

I wrote this book after being dismayed about all the publicity about `The Secret` and various renditions of the Law of Attraction.  While completely valid, all the hype was that somehow someone had `discovered` the secrets of life – and for a paltry $99 - $???? They would share these marvelous secrets with you.  The promise was that it would change your life. The truth is – as I see it – that the ` secret ` is really no secret at all.  The most ancient writings tell of it – as well as the Bible. Actually the Bible is full of these `secrets’.

You can pick up a Bible for far less than one of these courses will cost!
So, being dismayed at the proliferation of these `clandestine revelations’, I vowed to bring to the surface that what was lacking in our society was not some `covert source’ of information, but rather the application of these principles. So, this little handbook was born.  It goes into the actual application of these beliefs, or laws, and does it 
with humor and wit.  Each page has a saying, or representation of some type, to make the point in that chapter.

And rather than relying on these purported `secrets` - it actually ties the principles to one of the newest branches of science – Quantum Physics.  Isn’t that interesting?
You will find that it is a fun read – and a very insightful step-buy-step guide for the person who really truly wants to live a fuller life. There is no hype about becoming a multi-millionaire in the next 90 minutes, but it does provide a program – which can (and should) change your life for the better – in very short order.
