The Bible has outsold every other book that was ever written. This book is the filler for what little space that is available. Everyone should own, memorize and apply the contents because: 1. It is reader friendly; a special effort has been put into removing the suffering associated with forced obligatory reading. 2. WHAT IT IS is must reading for those searching for spiritual contact. It is the paradigm for methodology that is practical for those who prefer to do their own research and analysis that all are capable of... About my expertise: I spent years in the field of education. I read the Bible. I also spent many hours researching, reading others efforts, interpretations and speculation. If you did also without others con-trolling your exposure and interpretation, you can not be conned or frightened into zombotic behavior. Nor will you be controlled by those that ignore Bible text because it conflicts with a concocted word independent of the Biblical ingredients. I dont understand how anyone can be accused of attacking the Bible when the only attack is directly quoting the text. THE BIBLE IS WHAT IT IS. Is contorting the text the only acceptable method of examining it? Is it acceptable to manufacture conclusions then twist the text to support those conclusions? Im done and going to bed. I AM WHAT I AM.

No one knows that better than Cho, a Baltimore hustler who, along with his crew, dominates the city's drug game with an inventory that lines dope fiends up for blocks. But the notoriety and the privilege of being at the top comes with a long list of life-or-death consequences that Cho and the people he loves are forced to accept everyday. In this story of 'hood ambition, the fate of one man plays out against the inevitabilities of street life and the loyalty of homeboys tempted by greed. Paper or peace of mind, love or lust, honor or heartache even a fast life comes with choices.
This is the first major biography of V.S. Naipaul, Nobel Prize winner and one of the most compelling literary figures of the last fifty years. With great feeling for his formidable body of work, and exclusive access to his private papers and personal recollections, Patrick French has produced a lucid and astonishing account of this enigmatic genius: one which looks sensitively and unflinchingly at his relationships, his development as a writer and as a man, his outspokenness, his peerless creativity, and his extraordinary and enduring position both outside and at the very centre of literary culture. ‘Its clarity, honesty, even-handedness, its panoramic range and close emotional focus, above all its virtually unprecedented access to the dark secret life at its heart, make it one of the most gripping biographies I’ve ever read’ Hilary Spurling, Observer ‘A brilliant biography: exemplary in its thoroughness, sympathetic but tough in tone . . . Reading it I was enthralled – and frequently amused (how incredibly funny Naipaul can be!)’ Spectator ‘A masterly performance . . . If a better biography is published this year, I shall be astonished’ Allan Massie, Literary Review ‘Remarkable. This biography will change the way we read Naipaul’s books’ Craig Brown, Book of the Week, Mail on Sunday
