A New Approach to Smoking Cessation: ‘Stop Smoking: Understanding the Machinery of the Learning System’ by Vern Benson

In his work, author Vern Benson defines the smoking problem, illuminating the reasons why resisting the urge to smoke is so often doomed to failure. He presents his program that is meant to guide the physical and mental machinery of the body, explaining how an individual can quit smoking by understanding the mechanics of both our body and mind to discover the “how” of the approach to smoking cessation.

Benson, former meteorologist, mathematician, and smoker, uses mathematics and science to explain how to break the habit of smoking. Benson’s new perspective is supported by examples to make the topic understandable, making his step-by-step system a powerful, logical resource that gently guides you to a successful end to your desire to smoke.

BLUE STAR BOOKS is Proud to Announce the Release of ‘ADDICTED’ by JoAnn DeLazzari

BH Blog Banner - NEW RELEASE

Renowned investigative journalist Nikki Bradley is at the height of her career. When she tenaciously braves the remote jungles of Columbia on an assignment with personal motives, her profession seems to become less important. After her brother dies of an expected cocaine overdose, Nikki has one thing on her mind: to find the man responsible for her brother’s death, expose him, and ruin him.

Her dangerous traipse through the jungle on a quest to avenge her brother’s death brings her face to face with one of Columbia’s biggest cocaine operations. When she is caught taking pictures on the outskirts of the camp, she is taken prisoner by one of the leaders, a menacing drug trafficker determined to claim her as his own. An innocent pawn in a deadly game at the mercy of her captor, a mysterious and impossibly handsome man named King, Nikki must decide whether to abort her mission and surrender, or risk her life to expose her brother’s killer.

“Addicted’ is a thrilling, suspenseful story of political conspiracy, drama, and passion set in both the steamy tropics of South America and the urban worlds of Puerto Rico and Los Angeles.

By the age of nineteen, Tyler loses both his mother and father, inherits his family home, and becomes the owner and operator of the family grocery store that he turns into a thriving business. When the business is threatened by the construction of a shopping center along his small town’s only highway, Tyler must take matters into his own hands to preserve what he and his family have built. In an attempt to buy up the surrounding land with the help of the townspeople, Tyler befriends the town “witch,” Mary, who lives in just two rooms of a large, empty mansion on the outskirts of town.

But just when it seems he has everything, Tyler, alone and coping with the loss of both his parents and Mary, decides to leave town in search of something greater: true love.

“Eat: A Guide to Discovering Your Natural Relationship with Food” by Dr. Linda R. Harper, Ph.D.

For over one hundred years, our culture has promoted dieting—with the goal of losing weight—as the acceptable way to eat. With this aim of weight loss, a diet determines your eating choices and in turn creates a thought system that prevents you from trusting your natural ability to make the right choices about eating. Our inner wisdom, or best self, quietly speaks to us through intuition, gut feelings, physical cravings and thoughts about the present moment, whereas beliefs focused on specific outcomes, such as weight loss-focused dieting, push their way to the forefront of our minds and block our ability to enjoy the present. The purpose of this book is to remove the barriers preventing you from accessing and trusting your own best self in choosing and creating each eating experience. Eat provides the tools you need to remove the thoughts that are obstructing your inner wisdom and replace those thoughts with ones that will guide you back to everyday eating choices that stem from your best self. Linda R. Harper’s simple five-step guide will help you access your best self and discover your natural and healthy relationship with food, leaving the rules of dieting behind.

“Knight’s Desire” by Elizabeth Taylor George

All that stands between Sir Judson Langley and his chance to inherit Cresswell Castle is the truth, and a beautiful young serving woman with a secret. Arian Goodfife, rightful heiress of Cresswell, lives in the shadows, dirty and wretched. After her mother’s suicide, her cruel stepfather claimed to all that Arian died in a fire. Her identity stripped away, she trusts no one. Driven by the desire to regain Cresswell, she vows to depose her stepfather. Then a dark, handsome knight named Judson arrives, making another claim on her lands. Though he touches a place in her heart she thought had turned to stone, Arian realizes the peril she would face were Judson to discover her true identity. Is Judson an angel or a devil? Only a miracle of love will answer her question.

“Man’s Greatest Fear: The Final Phase of Human Evolution” by Dr. Thomas M. Lister
Award-Winner of the Best New eBook Non-Fiction category of the 2012 International Book Awards and finalist in the psychology category of Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards, Dr. Thomas M. Lister’s Man’s Greatest Fear: The Final Phase of Human Evolution is a must read for anyone who cares about the survival of humankind on our planet. Lister’s work examines man’s endless quest for power and destruction. In explaining the primordial motivation of man that continually stirs the cauldron of conflict throughout the world, he uses the war in the Middle East as a case study to exemplify man’s addiction to war, his relentless destruction of the environment, and his universal domination of woman.  Albert Einstein warned, ‘It will take a whole new manner of thinking for mankind to survive.’ Given man’s lust for war, he is not capable of changing the way in which he thinks. This new manner of thinking, to which Einstein refers, is unattainable; however, for woman it is natural, if not instinctive. For humankind to avoid extinction, woman must break the bonds of man’s religious and societal dogma and harness his destructive nature. Woman can bring about the salvation of man and our species. As Canadian physician Augusta Stowe-Gullen (1857-1943) predicted, ‘When women have a voice in national and international affairs, war will cease forever.’ Man, no longer able to wage war, is controlled by woman and herein lies his greatest fear: man’s domination by woman.  Through careful historical research, Lister examines humanity’s history of violence in relation to current events to explain subconscious motives beneath man’s endless quest for domination. By turning Freudian psychoanalysis inside out, Dr. Lister argues achievable solutions through the inclusion of women and male environmentalists in leadership roles. He hopes to educate and stir the public into action with his powerful explanation as to what, exactly, man’s greatest fear is and why it must be made a reality in order for humankind to escape extinction.

“Days Like Floating Water” by Susan McKee

Gold Winner of the 2009 Independent Publisher Book Awards for Adult Nonfiction, Days Like Floating Water follows a retired American couple as they volunteer to teach English to college students of a rural village in communist China. In the emerging, but still somewhat primitive city, readers are given an insider’s glimpse into the heart of modern China, traversing the culture and soul while embarking on a heartfelt journey.

 

“Growing Gills: A Fly Fisherman’s Journey” by David Joy
I know that most families have stories of fishing trips, but with mine it’s a little diferent. These aren’t tales told and born anew each time everyone’s back together. These aren’t stories marking the one or two outings when a father took a son fishing. These stories are our lives, the cornerstones of our existence, the reason that we contine to wake up and give the world another go. The tales are the points along our linear journey through this world and the only thing to assure us that we ever lived. In the quilt work of our lives these are the patches stitched together by our breathing, the only thing that holds it all together. Fishing is not a hobby; it is who we are.

David Joy’s Southern memoir details a North Carolina fly fisherman’s youthful experiences in the Outer Banks and Piedmont to his pursuit of native brook trout in the Appalachian Mountains. This work of literary nonfiction encapsulates the philosophical underpinnings of a man defined by fish, family, water, solitude, environment, and wilderness.
“Atheism: Genetics to Geology and Much More Science” by Maurice de Bona Jr.
Maurice de Bona, Jr.’s ‘Atheism: Genetics to Geology and Much More Science’ provides a thorough summary of Atheistic thought and its relation to scientific knowledge. De Bona’s extensive scientific research in areas including the origin of gods, Bible contradictions, geology, genetics, and even plants support his theories on Atheism and the science behind it. Rather than be concerned with what happens after death, De Bona supports that ‘the purpose of life is to achieve happiness through accomplishment here on Earth.’

 

“Family Secrets” by Candice Kohl
Esther Brown’s family is falling apart around her. Widowed and re-married with two daughters, Esther is unable to control her eldest daughter Geneva’s wayward ways and sends her to live with her sister Prudence and her husband, Brock Langtry, in Ivy Glen, a small town outside Chicago. Esther’s attempt to find salvation for her child sets in motion a series of dramatic events that tests the bonds of one family as they discover Family Secrets.

Based-in-fact, Family Secrets is set in a 1920’s Chicago suburb and told from the perspectives of multiple family members. This dramatic tale has it all: passion, betrayal, deception, forgiveness and a glimpse into the unconditional ties that bind a family together.

 

“Fat Girl Fairy Boy” by Carol McConkie
Frieda Kunkelheimer knew she wasn’t welcome in the world from her earliest stirrings. She also knew she was big and ugly, as proclaimed by her grandmother on the day of her birth. Though Frieda Kunkelheimer later blossoms into a beautiful and successful Hollywood film star, it had been determined, even before birth, that she was unwanted and unloved.

En route to a film shoot, the embittered, aging actress known as Frie, and Robin, her phobic, gay makeup artist, survive a plane crash in the jungles of Central America only to be held hostage by El Salvadoran guerrillas. Their self-absorbed lives take a backseat to the events of their capture as a bizarre set of circumstances unfold and kindle courage, compassion, and forgiveness they never thought possible.

Fat Girl Fairy Boy is a darkly humorous tale of family, friendship, and personal discovery. Written in masterful prose, and filled with rich characters, McConkie mixes irony, humor, and pathos while weaving multifaceted storylines into a wildly entertaining adventure. Few experienced novelists fare as well as McConkie in this debut literary event.
