A fun, light read chronicling an Uber driver's adventures shuttling passengers around Los Angeles. Over the course of fifty fares, he got up close and personal with the best (and weirdest) the city had to offer--a gaggle of drunken housewives, a celebrity upset at being late for his dinner reservation, a mysterious lawyer going to a late night meeting drunk and high. Oh yeah, he even ended up finding true love. Not bad for a few days work.

The Gifts Of Change

The Gifts of Change encourages readers to push beyond self-imposed boundaries, using the changes that come into their lives as a way to develop new abilities as well as find those that have lain dormant.

Change is an ever-present part of our personal and professional lives. It is not something to be tolerated, endured or adapted to. Rather, change is to be embraced, welcomed, and regarded as an opportunity to gain a new perspective. Like a plow that tills the soil, events and conditions (whether unexpected or planned) turn our lives inside out and upside down, and give us the chance to grow stronger. The Gifts of Change encourages readers to push beyond self-imposed boundaries, using the changes that come into their lives as a way to develop new abilities as well as find those that have lain dormant. The Gifts of Change will provoke thought, encourage reflection, and create an enhanced awareness in readers; and along the way it can ignite physical, mental, emotional and spiritual growth. Writer, essayist and entrepreneur, "change master" Nancy Christie uses her own experiences with change as a basis for her writing and workshops. Her work has appeared in Woman's Day, Better Homes & Gardens, Tai Chi Magazine and other publications, frequently focusing on identifying opportunities for personal development in everyday life.

The Courage to Write is an invaluable book and essential reading for anyone who wishes to learn how to write well. Katherine Anne Porter called courage "the first essential" for a writer. "I have to talk myself into bravery with every sentence," agreed Cynthia Ozick, "sometimes every syllable." E. B. White said he admired anyone who "has the guts to write anything at all."An author who has taught writing for more than thirty years, In The Courage to Write, Ralph Keyes, an author who has taught writing for more than thirty years, assures us that anxiety is felt by writers at every level, especially when they dare to do their best. He describes the sequence of "courage points" through which all writers must pass, from the challenge of identifying a worthwhile project to the mixture of pride and panic they feel when examining a newly published book or article. Keyes also offers specifics on how to root out dread of public "performance" and of the judgment of family and friends, make the best use of writers' workshops and conferences, and handle criticism of works in progress. Throughout, he includes the comments of many accomplished writers -- Pat Conroy, Amy Tan, Rita Dove, Isabel Allende, and others -- on how they transcended their own fears to produce great works.
