This book is nominally the results of an attempt to find a publisher willing to contract with the author for the printing of a thesis on the inability of Western liberal society to critique Islam without applying a politically-correct glory-to-Islam bent to opinions and observations. As the title suggests, it is far easier to find a pro-Islam book than one that even suggests that Islam needs to be placed under investigation, even after declaring a tabula rasa where opinions on it are concerned. Once the publishing problems have been identified and explained, the book continues with the results of a study the author has performed on this religion which is difficult to treat as a religion when viewed through Western eyes. The contents are a no-holds-barred record of everything attached to Islam in its early days and much of what has been proclaimed by Islamic scholars and religious pontificators in later years. This is not an Islam for Dummies sequel. It delves into all books (booklets, really) that compose the Koran. It explains what is written with the aid of behind-the-scenes information since what is written in the Koran is not always explained. When you are nothing less than the only living prophet of Allah then explanations are not required. Clearly its sole author, the prophet Muhammad, felt he was not shown the kind and amount of respect that prophets of Allah deserve as he felt a need to explain why he did not practise what he preached. Once you have finished this book and understand what Islam is all about you will be saying to yourself, “This is a religion?

We either think our lives are so special that everyone should be interested in what's happened to us, or so ordinary that we can't imagine anyone would care. The truth lies somewhere in between: yes, we are all special, and no, people will notcare--unless we write with them in mind. Joanne Fedler, a beloved writing teacher and mentor, has written Your Story to help all people, even those who don't necessarily identify as writers, value their life stories and write them in such a way that they transcend the personal and speak into a universal story. This book shows how to write from your life, but for the benefit of others. Each human life is unique, and the meaning we each make from our joys and suffering can, if written with a reader in mind, be an act of generosity and sharing. Filled with practical wisdom and tools, the book tackles: -mindset issues that prevent us from writing -ways to develop trust (in yourself, the process, the mystery) -triggers or prompts to elicit our own stories -Joanne's original techniques for lifewriting developed over a decade of teaching and mentoring -and much more Joanne understands the writer's loneliness, says one such writer whose life she's touched, the award-winning Israeli author Nava Semel. In this book she has created a menu of encouraging possibilities on how to overcome our fears and dig deep into our souls, so that our true voice can emerge.
