Crossroad Tours Present: Enlightenment for Nitwits

Posted by Frishawn Quinn at 3:11 AM 0 comments



 Title: Enlightenment for Nitwits
Author: Shepherd Hoodwin
Pages: 226

My Thoughts: 
If you are looking for a book written by some self important guru who has spent countless hours chanting words that no one knows the meanings of, in places that no civilized person knows exists, while doing doing "enlightening" and possibly illegal things with their spirit animals...This is not the book for you.                                                                                           
If however, your chanting involves encouraging the microwave to heat the pizza you bought last night faster,  in English, while attempting to balance your coffee mug and check your kid for new piercings or tattoos... READ ON!

This book is one that allows the reader to help his or herself to the best and most effective of all mood lifters and ego boosts.  The power of laughter.
This is not to say that you won't find those shiny pearls of life changing wisdom while reading this book.  You will indeed find the answers that you seek.  You just might have to look between topics such as Potty Training Your Inner Child and My Toilet Runneth Over to do it.

This book is at times irreverent, non-PC, and blunt but it also offers readers a chance to broaden views, expand minds, unstuff their proverbial shirts, and laugh until it hurts.
My Rating:

Book Description

October 17, 2011

This is perhaps the first metaphysical/self-help humor collection, designed to appeal to Oprah and Dave Barry fans as well as those with more esoteric interests. In a style reminiscent of comedian Steven Wright, it s full of wry one-liners along with longer, hilariously mind-bending pieces on a wide range of subjects, tied together by the idea of clueless humans trying to find enlightenment. With its fall release, it will be a great holiday gift for anyone who loves to laugh. It s perfectly timed to take advantage of worldwide anticipation of 2012, the legendary end of the Mayan calendar, which is a recurring theme in the book.





Editorial Reviews

Review

"ENLIGHTENMENT for NITWITS" is the funniest book I have read in several decades. Without quoting the book, it is difficult to recognize its utter simplicity: "If you're not in absolute bliss by the end of it, you might want to increase your meds." "If you're reading this before the invention of the printing press, be advised it is forbidden to interfere with the course of human history." Everything, from his grandmother's urine and feces samples, beautifully gift wrapped and left on the train, to blowing it by having a thirty second negative thought, is the name of the game. Nothing is sacred. "Sometimes you have to spend another $3 at Walmart to get class and elegance." You can defend to the death your right to shop naked or you can buy the book and enjoy 223 pages of delightful spoofs.
--C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D., author of "Life Beyond 100"

When We Collide
by: A.L. Jackson
Mini url for tour page: http://ow.ly/el
A.L. Jackson's "When We Collide" is a gripping story of love, loss, dysfunction and abuse.  Told from both Maggie and William's point of view; this story follows both characters' lives over the six years following events that altered the course of their lives forever.

William has sworn to never go back.  Convinced that if he ran far enough, fast, fast enough, and worked hard enough, he could leave her and his memories behind forever.  His heart and mind let him know just how wrong he is in the form of a little boy that haunts his dreams each night.

Maggie is a woman who, trapped in a web of lies and self deception, forces herself to pay a penance of abuse for the crime of daring to love the man she let go.


A.L. Jackson manages to shed a brilliantly hued light on the specters of low self-esteem, controlling relationships, and spousal abuse.  Because this story is told from two points of view, the reader gets to look examine these issues from the side of the victim and the person trying to save her.  

The issues addressed in this read are hard to read, but the care with which they are presented draws the reader in and makes a connection between the reader and the characters that will last far beyond the time spent within it's pages.

This is a must read for any man or woman who has been touched by abuse or who has friends or relatives who have suffered.  Many thanks to Ms. Jackson for this timely and gripping read.

My Rating:
  



William has spent six years running from his past and the last eight months trying to rid his mind of the dreams that increasingly haunt his nights. Trapped in a world of false ambitions and feigned affections, William knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s going to give.

Maggie had lived her entire life without hope until one man showed her what it meant to be loved. He’d been her light in a lifetime of darkness. Six years ago, that darkness stole him away. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.


When the family William left behind is struck by tragedy, he is called back to the one place he’s sworn to never return to again.

In a moment that will change his life forever, William comes face to face with the girl who, with one look, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they’d once believed they’d have.

Now William is ready to fight to take back what had been stolen from him six years before.


But he never imagined what that fight might cost him.
About A.L. Jackson
Author A.L. Jackson

A.L. Jackson first found a love for writing during her days as a young mother and college student.  She filled the journals she carried with short stories and poems used as an emotional outlet for the difficulties and joys she found in day-to-day life.                                                                                                                                            Years later, she shared a short story she’d been working on with her two closest friends and, with their encouragement, this story became her first full length novel. A.L. now spends her days writing in Southern Arizona where she lives with her husband and three beautiful children. Her favorite pastime is spending time with the ones she loves.
A.L. Jackson gives you an intimate look into the lives of family bound by an unseen connection in this romantic thriller with a supernatural twist
