Under the Banner of Heaven Book Summary : This extraordinary work of investigative journalism takes readers inside America’s isolated Mormon Fundamentalist communities, where some 40,000 people still practice polygamy. Defying both civil authorities and the Mormon establishment in Salt Lake City, the renegade leaders of these Taliban-like theocracies are zealots who answer only to God. At the core of Krakauer’s book are brothers Ron and Dan Lafferty, who insist they received a commandment from God to kill a blameless woman and her baby girl. Beginning with a meticulously researched account of this appalling double murder, Krakauer constructs a multi-layered, bone-chilling narrative of messianic delusion, polygamy, savage violence, and unyielding faith. Along the way he uncovers a shadowy offshoot of America’s fastest growing religion, and raises provocative questions about the nature of religious belief.

Under Heaven Book Summary : Inspired by the glory of Tang Dynasty China in the eighth century, Guy Gavriel Kay melds history and the fantastic into something both powerful and emotionally compelling. Under Heaven is a novel on the grandest narrative scale, encompassing the intimate details of individual lives in an unforgettable time and place. Shen Tai is the son of a general who led the forces of imperial Kitai in that empire's last war against their western enemies from Tagur, twenty years before. Forty thousand men on both sides were slain beside a remote mountain lake. General Shen Gao himself has died recently. To honour his father's memory, Tai has spent two years of official mourning alone at the battle site among the ghosts of the dead, laying to rest their unburied bones. One spring morning, he learns that others have taken note of his vigil. The White Jade Princess in Tagur is pleased to present him with two hundred and fifty Sardian horses, given, she writes, in recognition of his courage, and honour done to the dead. You gave a man one of the famed Sardians to reward him greatly. You gave him four or five to exalt him above his fellows, and earn him jealousy, possibly mortal. Two hundred and fifty is an unthinkable gift, a gift to overwhelm an emperor. Tai starts east towards the glittering, dangerous imperial capital and gathers his wits for a return from solitude by a mountain lake to his own forever-altered life.
Three Cups of Deceit Book Summary : Greg Mortenson, the bestselling author of Three Cups of Tea, is a man who has built a global reputation as a selfless humanitarian and children’s crusader, and he’s been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. But, as Jon Krakauer demonstrates in this extensively researched and penetrating book, he is not all that he appears to be. Based on wide-ranging interviews with former employees, board members, and others who have intimate knowledge of Mortenson and his charity, the Central Asia Institute, Three Cups of Deceit uncovers multiple layers of deception behind Mortenson’s public image. Was his crusade really inspired by a desire to repay the kindness of villagers who nursed him back to health when he became lost on his descent down K2? Was he abducted and held for eight days by the Taliban? Has his charity built all of the schools that he has claimed? This book is a passionately argued plea for the truth, and a tragic tale of good intentions gone very wrong. 100% of Jon Krakauer’s proceeds from the sale of Three Cups of Deceit will be donated to the “Stop Girl Trafficking” project at the American Himalayan Foundation (www.himalayan-foundation.org/live/project/stopgirltrafficking).

The book spotlights the struggles, survival strategies, and superhuman perseverance of the little boy's seventy-year old father, slowly dying of a lung disease. Central to the story are the sacrificial disciplines of this old Refugee Pole who sired two sons in his old age…and later, the misdeeds and misfortunes of his two fatherless boys. In a broader context, the book is a freeze-frame in time (1950), capturing the spirit and identity of the Refugee community: their attitudes, habits, ingenuities, vices, and contributions into the American Melting Pot. “Polish Heaven” chronicles the paranormal strength and perseverance forged into the human spirit as it passes through the Fiery Furnace of Affliction.

I Grew Up In Polish Heaven ignites and incinerates the straw Goliath of Hopelessness in the face of impossible odds. It places the single smooth stone of Visionary Courage into the inerrant sling of Hope, in the fullest confidence that every Goliath has a chink in his armor. This book offers genuine hope and encouragement to persevere with what you have, in facing your desperate circumstances – how to “Never Say Die!” It gives case histories of deeply distraught human beings who survived in and triumphed over their darkest hour.

As It Is in Heaven Book Summary : The body of a 21st Century scientist, Newton Flotman, is discovered deep underground inside a life support chamber in the 30th Century and is revived from hibernation with ultra-advanced technology. He later learns of many disturbing and beautiful developments, which occurred on Earth during his years of absence. Including the 3rd World War, the final Nuclear Holocaust, which caused horrific death and destruction, and had physically altered the planet to such a degree that even our top geologists and scientists were left wholly baffled...thus began a new era, which they called, 'The Terrain Reformation Period'. Almost 898 years had passed, the year of our Lord AD 2914, he finds himself now living in a reformed world where war, violence, crime, greed, poverty, and money, has long since been abolished.

Surrounded by generosity, love, and kindness, he struggles to find out about his past (and later discovers some shocking truths too) with the aid of a new invention, Ghost Crystal, a technology that enables direct real-time communication with the spirit world. If you are tired of violence and murder and share a keen interest in technology and spiritual matters, then you will enjoy this adventure immensely. The story is told through the eyes of Newton himself, as he describes, most brilliantly, the perfect blueprint for the creation of an ideal world which most of us would yearn.
