Book on Happiness: Feel, Deal and Heal by Nirmal Yadav

Published April 15th 2017

Pages 200

From the time I put my hands on Nirmal Yadav’s latest non-fiction book, “Feel, Deal and Heal” considering the amount of books in self-help genre as a whole, I had good vibes.

She starts by acknowledging the question we all wonder, the one that concerns an individual’s happiness. Man is a social and emotional creature. Be it the professional or the personal sphere, emotions are the driving force behind all our thinking, behaviour and actions.

Guest Post: To make a writer by Peter Gray

Telemachus, how did it come about?

For someone who has spent a long career treating Thoroughbred horses – for everything from infertility to racing performance – the transformation to writer has been a long, unlikely and tenuous road.  I started dabbling with a pen back in the Seventies, realised it wasn’t a natural talent of mine, but doggedness convinced me to continue.  I read a lot of fiction, but always with reservations about copying style or ideas.  It was my aim, if I might ever succeed, to have a voice that would be distinctly my own and I didn’t want to steal anyone else’s ideas – even subconsciously.  So I muddled on and the efforts weren’t very good; if I was learning and felt there were mild signs of improvement – as well as an innate inability to accept failure.

BOOK REVIEW: The Tao of Charlie Munger by David Clark

“It’s been my experience in life, if you just keep thinking and reading, you don’t have to work.”

The Tao of Charlie Munger by David Clark is a collection of quotes from Berkshire Hathway’s Vice Chairman on Life, Business and the Pursuit of Wealth.

Today, Munger is one of America’s most successful investors and Warren Buffett’s business partner for almost forty years. Buffett says “Berkshire has been built to Charlie’s blueprint.
