Coming Soon: Love and Compassion is My Religion by Jane Zarse


Title: Love and Compassion Is My Religion: A Beginner’s Book Into Spirituality

Author: Jane Zarse

Genre: Non-Fiction/Spirituality

Format: Paperback and eBook

Publisher: Self/CreateSpace

Publication Date: 2016


Jane Zarse was rich and privileged. From prep school to Boston University to a prime spot at the Chicago’s Options Exchange trading, she’d found the recipe for success.

But wrapped up in the excess of alcoholism, she felt nothing.

Zarse shares the most personal details of her descent into alcoholism and her eventual crawl back in ‘Love and Compassion is My Religion’, an inspirational memoir dedicated to showing others how the power of God’s love can change you. Struggling through in an alcohol-induced daze, she lost it all – including her marriage, her mother, and even more, before she finally decided to seek help.

“I can tell you now – when I was young, I didn’t just think I had it all, I knew I did,” explains Zarse. “I carried that same success into my early adult years after graduating from University. I suppose I became complacent and fell into a culture of excess, because to say I crashed down and hit rock-bottom is an understatement.”

Continuing, “The worse thing is that, when you’re caught in addiction’s vicious circle, you just can’t see a way out. But when I found God, I quickly came to realize that there was an exit door, if I was willing to embrace His love and compassion. I wasn’t a heavily spiritual person before, but now credit it with the only thing that saved me.”

Zarse believes that her memoir will change the lives of millions of readers around the world.

“There is nobody that this book can’t influence. From those caught in their own addiction cycles to those exploring their spirituality for the first time, and even people with no spiritual leanings who just want to briefly experience life from another person’s point of view. God’s love knows no boundaries and, after reading my book, every reader will understand this boldly.”

Author: Amy Main

Genre: Romance/Self-Improvement

Format: Paperwork and eBook

A charming yet eye opening look at modern dating through the eyes of a young woman in Los Angeles. Very empowering and a must read for young women.

After a particularly rough breakup, Amy Main found an unusual way to get over her ex: go on 40 dates in 40 nights. The ground rules:
A date a day for 40 days
All dates using Tinder only
Maximum of three dates with the same guy
No sex till monogamy
But it turns out that just because dozens of potential guys are a phone swipe away doesn’t mean that dating is easy! Amy finds that following her own rules is a lot more difficult and exhausting than she expects.

Based on the viral blog of the same name, 40 Dates & 40 Nights is the fun and mind-boggling account of Amy’s experiences riding the Tinder roller coaster of romance with hot flings, awkward meals, and genuine connection.

Book Review:  I approached reading Surf Social Waves – Shy Man’s Guide To Cutting Edge Social Secrets  with some skepticism.  I was pleasantly surprised by Chris Chandra’s honest, plain spoken, easy to read approach to the subject matter.

Chandra provides an overview of personal interaction and rejection, placing it in social and historical context.  He mixes personal, historical, and biological/parapsychological support for the premises he outlines throughout the work.

The second Part of his work, entitled Communication, is the heart of the work.  It provides some specific examples and practical techniques for improving social skills and meeting the express goals of the work:  which is to be more social and to enlarge one’s social circle.  He identifies useful methods and exercises for improving one’s social skills and becoming more successful in the communication game.

Two things that I found, particularly, useful in the work were the Chapter summaries, which really outlined with clarity the salient points the author was looking to address, and the “talking points” to be used and avoided in conversation in order to achieve the stated goals of the work.  These are unique and elevate the work from a work of theory to a helpful guide.

I think anyone, at any social level, can find something of value in‘Surf Social Waves – Shy Man’s Guide To Cutting Edge Social Secrets’ .
