In "Lord of Light," a member of the St. John the Baptist Hospitaller sect gains miraculous healing powers after being struck by lightning in Jerusalem. But the Hospitallers consider him a heretic and put a bounty on his head. Lady Alisanne de Soulant is forced to help capture him, but guilt and attraction lead her to aid his escape. As the stakes grow higher, a group of misfits must come together to save the "Lord of Light" from certain death at the hands of the Hospitallers.

@sachinbapure I liked it. But these kinds of books aren’t quick reads, they’re inspiration to self reflect.      fuente

The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah
Richard Bach - 2001-03-12 (publicado por primera vez en 1977)
Calificación de Goodreads
In the cloud-washed airspace between the cornfields of Illinois and blue infinity, a man puts his faith in the propeller of his biplane. For disillusioned writer and itinerant barnstormer Richard Bach, belief is as real as a full tank of gas and sparks firing in the cylinders...until he meets Donald Shimoda--former mechanic and self-described messiah who can make wrenches fly and Richard's imagination soar.... In Illusions, Richard Bach takes to the air to discover the ageless truths that give our souls wings: that people don't need airplanes to soar...that even the darkest clouds have meaning once we lift ourselves above them... and that messiahs can be found in the unlikeliest places--like hay fields, one-traffic-light midwestern towns, and most of all, deep within ourselves.

Science and Practice (5th Edition)
Robert B. Cialdini - 2006-12-26 (publicado por primera vez en 1984)
Calificación de Goodreads
Influence, the classic book on persuasion, explains the psychology of why people say "yes"—and how to apply these understandings. Dr. Robert Cialdini is the seminal expert in the rapidly expanding field of influence and persuasion. His thirty-five years of rigorous, evidence-based research along with a three-year program of study on what moves people to change behavior has resulted in this highly acclaimed book. You'll learn the six universal principles, how to use them to become a skilled persuader—and how to defend yourself against them. Perfect for people in all walks of life, the principles of Influence will move you toward profound personal change and act as a driving force for your success.

@JackDickersons @AdHocAccount_ Great book. I just can’t recommend Cialdini’s other work as strongly so I left him out.      fuente
¿Está usted de broma Sr. Feynman? book cover
¿Está usted de broma Sr. Feynman?
Adventures of a Curious Character
Richard P. Feynman - 2018-02-06 (publicado por primera vez en 1985)
Calificación de Goodreads
Richard Feynman no ha sido sólo uno de los físicos teóricos más destacados del mundo sino también una personalidad insólita y genial cuyas investigaciones sobre la reformulación de la teoría cuántica para calcular las interacciones entre la radiación electromagnética y las partículas elementales le valieron el Premio Nobel de física de 1965. En su biografía y en su obra se dan cita la curiosidad irrefrenable, el escepticismo empedernido, el sentido del humor, el gusto por la travesura, la más vasta cultura y el más penetrante ingenio. Feynman es seguramente la única persona en el mundo que ha reventado las cajas fuertes más seguras de Los Alamos durante la fabricación de la bomba atómica y que ha tocado con maestría la frigideira en una banda de samba brasileña; que ha explicado física a cerebros como Einstein, Von Neumann y Pauli y que ha tocado los bongos en una compañía de ballet; que ha sido declarado deficiente mental por el ejército norteamericano y que ha obtenido el Premio Nobel por la Academia Sueca. ¿Está usted de broma, Sr. Feynman? recoge las conversaciones mantenidas a lo largo de una serie de años con Ralph Leighton, quien se encargó de grabarlas y transcribirlas.

Spiritual Warfare book cover
Spiritual Warfare
Book Three of The Enlightenment Trilogy
Jed McKenna - 2007-01-01
Calificación de Goodreads
Spiritual Warfare delves into a war like no other, where you face an enemy of unimaginable superiority - yourself. The book presents the story of a normal woman who receives an invitation that she cannot refuse, as well as that of another woman who accepted and overcame the challenge. It also puts spirituality and religion to the test, indicting its own genre and audience for a crime of oppression and subjugation. This book is a must-read for those seeking direct and authentic spirituality and are ready to put away childish beliefs.
