This is a narrative of the author's childhood memories as he was growing up in a small village in Kenya. This was characterized by several events arranged here in short stores and told with the light touch. What readers ask nowadays in a book is that it should improve, instruct and enlighten. My narrative is not limited to just this end. I wish no one to read this book under misapprehension. The reader may gain a heightened awareness of culture with its norms, traditions, morals and social organization, albeit from a boy's perspective and from time to time, my current views of these. Readers are welcome to think that this book will let them make a better judgment of my culture and even appreciate it. I cannot with all honesty demand of this. I cannot even promise that readers will be able to do this by the end of the book. All I can suggest is that, when you tire of reading the Best 100 Books, you may take up this book for half an hour. It will do you much good.

A defendant in two of the most infamous Southern trials of the twenty-first century, Richard M. Scrushy has twice found himself in the crosshairs of the U.S. Department of Justice. In both cases, he proclaims his innocence. Now, in It Should Not Happen in America, Scrushy speaks out for the first time and sets the record straight. The year is 2004. Scrushy is one of the South’s wealthiest men and his company, HealthSouth, is among America’s most profitable healthcare corporations. That is, until the carelessness and corruption of others drag him into federal prison. It Should Not Happen in America details in Scrushy’s own words the events surrounding his legal battles at the turn of the century. The engaging memoir contains never-before-shared insights into the inner life of one of modern Alabama’s most vilified public figures. For the first time, Scrushy bears witness to the faith and character that guided the former HealthSouth CEO from a prison cell to achieving Wall Street success all over again. This story isn’t as seen on TV, and the events featured in It Should Not Happen in America are described credibly and engagingly.

Observing What Is Not Happening is a continuation of the author's first memoir, Where Your Knowledge Ends Is Where Mine Begins. Six chapters of this second memoir are ageless; they stem from the Word of God. They are predicated on the Word of God. “Observing what isn't happening” is a remark first made by Rush Limbaugh. And it was elected to be the title of my second memoir because through the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding from the Holy Spirit, I know all the ways of Man. The ways of Man are an open book to me. Man's behavior, actions, and attitudes are so obviously pronounced to me. Observing what is not happening is predicting what Man will do regardless of how long he tarries; Man will eventually do what I predict. I'm writing this book at age thirty three, the same age Jesus Christ was before He departed the world. The main characters in this memoir are God Almighty, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Archangel Lucifer, Apostle Excel, Rush Limbaugh and Iifi are other prominent characters. Everything I say in this memoir stems from the Word of God.

Too many of us feel trapped in stagnant romantic, family, or workplace relationships. Weighed down by toxic thoughts and emotions, we might be quick to judge and slow to pardon, and self-righteous about our feelings as we dwell on memories of what we or others did (or failed to do). In this new book, Iyanla Vanzant challenges us to liberate ourselves from the wounds of the past and to embrace the new power of forgiveness. With Iyanla’s 21-Day Forgiveness Plan, you’ll explore relationship dynamics with your parents, children, friends, partners, co-workers, bosses, yourself, and even God. With journaling work and Emotional Freedom Techniques (also known as "tapping"), you’ll learn to live with more love; gain new clarity on your life, lessons, and blessings; and discover a new level of personal freedom, peace, and well-being. Forgiveness doesn’t mean agreeing with, condoning, or even liking what has happened. Forgiveness means letting go and knowing that—regardless of how challenging, frightening, or difficult an experience may seem—everything is just as it needs to be in order for you to grow and learn. When you focus on how things "should" be, you deny the presence and power of love. Accept the events of the past, while being willing to change your perspective on them. As Iyanla says, "Only forgiveness can liberate minds and hearts once held captive by anger, bitterness, resentment, and fear. Forgiveness is a true path to freedom that can renew faith, build trust, and nourish the soul."
