{o}  ​How To Be Deep Down Forever Happy - Gary Hutchison (Tom Gnagey) 130 pages
The author presents a tried and true formula for what he describes as Deep Down Forever Happiness.  He suggests that one, basic, change in a person's approach to living is all it takes to make the difference - forever.  He goes on to provide and demonstrate seven corollary secrets that help define and implement the main fourmula.  Fun, entertainment, pleasure, and the like, although held as imortant parts of life, are shown to never be the sources of true, Deep Down Forever Happiness.  He demonstrates quite convincingly that the acquisition of stuff, money, power, prestige, and fame can never be a source of thoroughgoing, permanent, happiness. The author's suggestion: First create happiness within yourself and then decide what 'extra' trappings you may want in your life. Some rich folks are truly happy, but NOT because they are rich. 

{o}  Milieu: a writing tutorial  - Gary Hutchison (Tom Gnagey)
The author has published over one hundred novels (and written dozens more just because he gets such a hoot out of writing).  He wrote this, in part, to help answer the question he so often hears when speaking, "How do you go about the process of writing?"  Sifting away the details, his plan is simple.  Define one character, place him  in a milieu (setting) and let the story develop on its own.  Add characters as they are required. Expand or contract the milieu as required by the unfolding story.  The author usually knows the main character's back-story (what has happened up to where the story begins), he has some idea as to the conflicts that will be acted out, and typically knows how the story will end (in fact, that's often all he knows!).  MILIEU is a step by step tutorial.  The reader rides inside the author's mind as he creates a short novel (The Mystery of the Barina Ruby), pointing out alternatives, necessary decisions, and dozens of ways to ease the task of reading.

{o}  Everything I Needed to Know About Saving The World I Learned Before I Was Ten:
a manual for human survival.   by Craigy Franklin
Drawing on the diaries he kept between ages six and ten, the author presents his early observation (consistently entertaining!)  that supported his contention, at ten, that saving mankind and building an "Eden" on Earth was really a rather simple, straight forward, and logical undertaking, which should - he believed - take him only a matter of weeks to achieve.  This little book approaches, with humor, the very serious topic of building a world-wide, humanity-friendly society, and describes the obstacles the author ran into during his sixty-plus year 'mission' to implement his early findings.  Although he contends it all boils down to following one simple guideline, he provedes two-dozen 'Agreements' ("for those who feel the need for more"), which if followed, he believes can provide a safe, happy, productive, human race, overflowing wtith love, compassion, helpfulness, and indomitable self-esteem.

{o}  A Crisis of Myths:living five years poor among the 'common man' - G. F. Hutchison
A presentation and discussion of the beliefs and misbeliefs held by the common man (a terms of respect) as discovered and studied by the author while living with them and working beside them at minimal pay jobs.  They demonstrate a frightening lack of accurate practical information about science and eh social/psychological processes. Instead, their day to day existence is guided by a dangerous body of myths, which direct their lives and ways of thinking. A series of realistic suggestions is offered to assist them to help themselves out of his stifling quagmire.
