A2Z of Common diseases and their Homeopathic Treatment" by Dr. Surbhi Prapanna - Book Review

 


Author : Dr. Surbhi Prapanna

Genre : Health, Alternative medicine, Homeopathy

Rating : 5/5

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Dr. Surbhi Prapanna is a homeopathic therapist by profession and a writer and blogger by passion. She has more than 4 years of professional writing experience and her work had been published on various prestigious online platforms like Momspresso.com, kidstoppress.com, cureJoy.com and shivanaspirit.com. Health, parenting, and creative activities for kids (art, crafts, DIYs etc...) are her niche. And she shares her areas of expertise and parenting experience on her blog Surbhiprapanna.com. She has won so many awards for her academic and professional excellence but won the “Best parent award” is most precious and satisfying experience of her life. 

ABOUT THE BOOK

This book talks about all the common diseases with their causes, symptoms, prevention, diagnosis with homeopathic remedies in detail. In-depth detailing shows the kind of research the author has put in that gives us better understanding with immense clarity about the causes and treatment. Dr. Surbhi has covered almost all the common as well as routine illnesses which you can ever think of. Every illness and their remedies are explained with pictures that makes it very convenient for the readers to understand.

Homeopathy is a 200 year- old -form of alternative medicine that claims to revitalize a healing response and strengthen the body's ability to heal itself.

What I like about homeopathic treatment is that a homeopath will enquire into the cause behind the problem and go to the root of the disease to have a better understanding. For example if you have a recurring headaches due to some other disorder in your body such as stress, constipation or acidity, a homeopath will aim to remove the reason behind the headaches, or inquire patiently and show you the way out. 

There are numerous benefits of homeopathic medicine. They believe in holistic methodology, they try to remove the cause , there are hardly any side effects therefore considered as safest medicine. It also helps in building up your immunity and acts like a preventive medicine.

MY TAKE ON THE BOOK

Dr. Surbhi's passion and love for her professions shows in her writing. As we all know medicine is one of the most prestigious and highly regarded profession and as it has been rightly said that god cannot be everywhere that's why he has sent the doctors with excellence and selflessness. By writing this precious book Dr. Surbhi has proved this saying right. "A2Z of Common disease and their homeopathic treatment" is not just another book but a reference guide which can serve millions of people. So it is our responsibility to create awareness and increase the reachability of this valuable book. I personally use and believe in homeopathic medicine and have complete faith in it. I am a big fan of Dr. Surbhi's writing and precision as all her content are not just insightful but aim to serve the community. 

I strongly recommend this book for all age groups and for all those people who believes in the power of alternative medicine and who believes in the selfless service as it can give you strength and courage to awaken the humanity. I am saving this book as my all time reference book.

AUTHOR'S KEY NOTES

  • Key symptoms of each medicine are shown in bold italic, that can help in selection of correct remedy.
  • This book doesn't encourage self medication and written only for educational purpose.

the story of STORY by Ravish Mani - Book Review




Author : Ravish Mani

Rating : 5/5

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ravish Mani is a life adviser and story consultant. He is known in the blogosphere for his spiritual approach, analytical abilities, multidimensional perspective, and helping nature. People in writing community say that he has acumen for reading in between lines. If you want your work to be critically appreciated, you would want him to read it. If you are looking for story consultancy, manuscript analysis or developmental editing he is, the go to person.

ABOUT THE BOOK

The story of Story throws light on the important aspects of storytelling. Being a story consultant himself, the author has woven his own story to explain why people love reading stories and how can you make these stories impactful which can leave everlasting impression on readers and give them alluring experience of lifetime.

The moment you are ready to quit is usually the moment right before a miracle happens. Ravish has experienced something very similar yet unexpected while writing this book and how his internal desire to achieve something big helped him to come out as a real winner. As I mentioned earlier there is a story within a story that's what makes this read even more interesting and intriguing.

He has given some great tips and tricks to be an exceptional storyteller. He has taken us through different facet of storytelling which includes substance of a story, basic story template, qualities that  protagonist need to possess, how to arose various emotions in readers, importance of metaphors , body language and homo fictus characters and all this he has done it with utmost clarity. All the aspects were explained with an example from well known books that makes it easier to understand. If you are an aspiring author or you are already one , this book will teach you technical terminologies which you should know.

MY TAKE ON THE BOOK

Story telling reminds us of humanity is this beautiful and broken world. I wouldn't be wrong in saying that stories wield a powerful influence in our world. Explaining any concept in the form of story has a huge impact on the readers and that's exactly Ravish has achieved beautifully and effortlessly in his book. I literally felt as a part of this story telling process while reading this book. Towards the end of the book, he has also explained the difference between a writer and an author which has created a great impact on my mind.

CAUGHT MY EYES

There are two things which caught my attention instinctively. 

First,  his modesty, in spite of being a master in his profession he is extremely humble in expressing his emotions of not being able to give his hundred percent due to unforeseen reasons. But if you ask me , I would say he has created an impact on his readers which is eternal.

Second, something which I haven't seen anywhere before, "UnCopyright". According to him , his work can be copied and edited as per people's wish as he believes morality cannot be forced it comes from within. What a wonderful thought and this confidence can only comes with a an in-depth knowledge.

This book is an apt read for those who aspires to be an author. I give a big thumps up to this book.

Diary of a Malayali Madman by N Prabhakaran - Book Review

 


Author : N Prabhakaran

Translator : Jayashree Kalathil

Genre : Literary and Contemporary Fiction

Rating: 3.5/5


ABOUT THE AUTHOR

N. Prabhakaran is a major contemporary writer from Kerala and has been awarded the state Sahitya Akademi Award twice. Jayasree Kalathil is a writer and translator based in London. Prabhakaran's Diary of a Malayali Madman won the Crossword Book Award for Fiction in Translation in 2019, and Jayasree's translation of S. Hareesh's Moustache won the JCB Prize for Literature in 2020.

ABOUT THE BOOK

This book is an anthology of five short stories which are eccentric ,short and crisp. All the stories are different from one another but all of them are dealing with the most pertinent issues in todays world and that is "Mental Health". Diary of Malyali Madman is a story about madness, politics, love and obsession. Every character in the story has a different perspective about their surroundings. Set in North Kerala, the stories are mostly in the form of diary entries. All five Protagonist Georgekutty, Mohanan, Sreekumar and Aagney are anxious to tell their stories to the outside world. The Protagonist in each story deals with collision of realities and deception of life.

Out of five stories my favorite is "Pigman", which author has adapted into a feature film as well. It is a story about young man who works as a junior accountant on a farm that rears Berkshire pigs for slaughter. It shows how he is slowly driven to hallucinating about pigmen. Will not reveal too much about the stories but the characters in each story is so unpredictable that, in spite of being in complete denial of social norms they always find themselves trapped in an sealed environment because of their unstable mind. I won't be wrong if I say that each character in the story are mentally unwell and incapable to adapt themselves into this society.

This book is translated by Jayashree Kalathil, whose own intense research deals with mental health. This book along with 5 unique stories also contains insights, interviews and more with the author.

MY TAKE ON THE BOOK

What I found missing here is, there is no closure. Every story was open ended and , as a reader we can think about anything according to our own understanding which might not matches what writer really wants to convey. This may dilute the writer's vision. If you are looking for a story which are unusual and ends with unexpected twist and short read than go for it.

Kindle Edition: INR 223.30

The Boundaries Of Sanity by Mira Saraf - Book Review


Author : Mira Saraf

Genre : Fiction

Rating : 4.5/5

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Mira Saraf is an English and Psychology graduate. She works for a family business and outside office she is a an avid reader, poet and a writer. She has various achievements and an inspirational journey.

ABOUT THE BOOK

"The Boundaries of Sanity " is an intense and dark read. It consists of five short stories which talks about people's struggle with life and their inner conscience. This book talks about negative emotions and how these negative emotions can be overcome with courage and determination. Considering the depth of each story it is quite strenuous to understand. The protagonist in each story comes out at the end as a real fighter whether it is a women who got stranded in an abandoned house on a seashore and found comfort in the memories of her past or someone who was fighting with her inner self image and realised her self worth, or someone who was buried in senseless worries and realised life is too short so enjoy to the fullest and while reading all this it gives you a sense of hope. 

MY TAKE ON THE BOOK

This is one book which I wanted to finish it in one go. And this realization came just after reading the first one. If you leave any story in between you will loose the track and moreover you wouldn't be able be feel the same emotions. There are times when you feel irresolute about your own understanding that you would like to read again and again to be very sure about your interpretation.  There is so much of depth in each story that you cannot understand if you don't feel the connect with the story and with the characters.

The characters, feelings and thoughts are so real that you would be able to relate with it.  Each story leaves you with a question mark and that after thought "This can happen with anybody" will give you goose bums. Being a Psychology student writer had portrayed each and every emotions beautifully.

This read might leave you with unhappy and dejected kind of feeling but it's worth a read. So I feel if you are emotionally intelligent person then this book is an apt read.

The Psychology of Persuasion by Kevin Hogan - BookReview


Author : Kevin Hogan
Genre : Non- fiction / Self Help
Rating : 4.9/5

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kevin Hogan, Ph.D, is the author pf seven books and has made hundreds of radio, television and media appearance. He teaches "The Psychology of Persuasion" for the prestigious University of St. Thomas Management center in Minneapolis, and has taught his unique skills of persuasion to employees of America's Fortune 500 companies. His Specialized knowledge of body language and hypnosis has helped him gain recognition as one of America's leading experts in the field of Human influence.

 ABOUT THE BOOK 

This book consists of most dynamic tools, strategies and techniques of persuasion. It talks about the most imperative skill one need to posses in their personal and professional life and that is Persuasive Communication. This strategies are proven which were used by most influential businesses in the world and now can be used by you.

LEARNINGS FROM THE BOOK 

There are numerous learning but to name a few 

  • You will learn how to read other's body language in a split second 
  • You will learn to influence others to your way of thinking 
  • You will learn to create rapport with anyone in few seconds 
  • You will learn to discover the need and wants of others 
  • You will learn to help others see you as the solution to their problems 
  • You will learn to develop charismatic power to attract others 

MY TAKEAWAY FROM THE BOOK 

As a soft skills trainer I always look for a book which can add value to my content and at the same time make me look like a credible person. That's the reason I have developed immense love for non fiction books. I have incorporated few of the learning by now, for example being more assertive and more happier as now I have learn to control my own destiny rather than being a pawn in someone else's chess game. The power to influence is certainly the most important communication skill one can have but there is also a great downside to the power of influence. There will always be the master manipulators. For example Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein have mastered these influential skills for the worse. It is unfortunate truth that the skills of persuasion can be acquired by people with both good and evil motivations. The final advise from my side is if you want to gain the most out of this book, make sure you do the enjoyable exercise provided so you will be able to integrate the information into your subconscious immediately. Remember knowledge is only powerful when it is applied.

UnResticted Access (New and Classic Short Fiction) by James Rollins- Book Review


Author: James Rollins 
Genre : Thriller/ Adventure Fiction
Rating: 4.8/5

ABOUT THE BOOK

If you are a big Fan of James Rollins , you will be thrilled to know that the best selling novelist has come out with his first ever collection of short fiction and it is intriguing. It is an anthology of 12 short stories packed with wild imagination and extreme adventure. Out of which 11 are previously published stories with one brand new novella.Out of 11, three of the stories are in collaboration with other well known writers but I can say that James Rollins has definitely swiped the show. Sigma Series is about Sigma Force which is a fictional division of the U.S. DARPA program. The chief operatives in SIGMA combine trained military skills with specialized scientific knowledge. The force's purpose is to investigate and to secure sensitive information that could be a threat to the United States, its functions are a combination of counter-terrorism, research and covert operations. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

James Rollins is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of international thrillers that have been translated into more than forty languages. His Sigma series has been lauded as one of the "top crowd-pleasers and one of the "hottest summer reads". In each novel, acclaimed for its originality, Rollins unveils unseen worlds, scientific breakthrough and historical secrets- and he does it all at breakneck speed and with stunning sight. If you have read his popular Sigma Force Series you will be able to relate with most of the character in the book and will feel more connected as he has provided a background story for his high tech spy undercover Novel.


STORY LINE

Each Story is fascinating in its own way. They are full of secrets and adventure. Being short stories the pace of each story is quite rapid, so it kind of hooks you till you finish reading one.

In the stories "Kowalski's in Love" , "Midnight Watch", "The Skeleton Set" and "Tracker" he has given short snippets into the secret lives and covert mission of Sigma. So new readers will get some vague idea about what brilliant novelist James Rollins is and will be inspired to read his Sigma Series. Should I say this is surely a reverse marketing strategy which he has adopted intentionally or unintentionally but it is definitely working for him. Sigma Series is rich with complex characters and thrilling action plots and I cannot wait to see this treasure trove of amazing stories into a great film. In fact while reading you would be able to visualize the scenes and characters so well as Rollins has described them precisely. I actually felt as if I am watching a movie while reading.

"Kowalski's in Love" shows how Sigma's most fabled tough guy accidentally get into a secret mission aimed at stopping mad scientist island experiment with a dangerous chemical. 

"The Skeleton Key" is about exploring the menacing catacombs beneath Paris, France to take down a charismatic leader scheme for murder on a massive scale.

"The Midnight Watch is about how sigma's young intel analyst and computer wiz deals with Chinese agents who are causing late night trouble around the city.

"Ghost Ship" is again about Sigma's commanders who finds long lost ship of fortune and also about global climate change on the Great Barrier Reef. This is one of my favourite as they mentioned about India but that's  not just the reason why I loved it but because it has non-stop adventure with some high tech science gadgets.

"Tracker" is yet another thriller where a girl and her father is rescued and how the treasure plundered by the Nazi's from the area's concentration camp-bound Jewish population.

All the stories are spell bounding and gripping. And finally the original story "Sun Dog". Would not like to reveal much but this Novella brings an exciting genre blending book to a suitable conclusion that should please for Rollin's novels as well as lovers of an adventurous short stories. 

MY TAKE ON THE BOOK

I loved the way he began this book by explaining what motivated him for writing short stories long after he established himself as a successful novelist. Mentioning of India in any book not only makes me feel proud and triggers my emotion but also inspire me to read that book even more. In the story Ghost Ship though there was just a mention of our country provoked me to finish this book in one go. All the book lovers especially who loves thriller and adventure will swear by this book. 

James Rollins heart and soul still lies with doorstopper novels which is his first love but trying his hand on short stories is definitely meritorious.

There was a time when I used to call myself an avid reader- long long time back.
