(Eclectica) (Volume 2) I have to Eat and Sleep: the Art of Business
Deepak is a cunning businessman, and an inspired artist. His fundamental training in both has resulted in an art of business which is almost philosophical. This book attempts to focus upon that almost philosophical philosophy presented in Deepak Morris’s “Business Advice for an Artist.” Effortless living is an honest living, and the common interactions we have with people daily can result in uncommon friendship if we only permit ourselves to allow that most fundamentally honest relationship to grow. Deepak’s joy of living is natural and effortless – and we can share it too: beginning by admitting to ourselves, as Deepak does, that we have to eat and sleep. When we acknowledge this basic fact, we discover the importance of having fun – whether we dine alone or with friends or with strangers, whether we sleep peacefully or not. Life is an adventure, and we write the story. And as Deepak has shown, we can make it a better one – for everybody.



(Kitchen Table) (Cooking) Vegan and Gluten Free
Gluten Free and Vegan diets are more than fads, more than a way of life – for some, it is the way to stay alive and necessary to their health and happiness. Don’t worry, though: catering to their needs is easy and won’t require fancy ingredients or techniques.
Providing accommodation for those with special dietary requirements is easier than you’d think – and it is a great way to increase both the number of customers and their satisfaction. Doing so does not require stocking special ingredients or modifying your menu – only learning how and advertising to the public that you have options for those requiring special diets.
This book provides easy to use information and directions specially intended for food professionals who cook and prepare foods for a living - but also “translates” these into concepts for “Professionals @ Home” who provide for the needs of family members and friends.
Learn not only the method, but the “why” and “how” through easy to understand scientific and technical information. And get tips on marketing: catering to Gluten Free and Vegan diets is a great way to increase business!
At the end of the book are helpful sheets which may be freely reproduced and displayed for training or reference purposes – in the professional kitchen and at home.

Belief can be a tricky thing. In 1939, the Polish Army wasn't equipped to invade Grandma's refrigerator.

Once Germany was scared, it was easy to get every German angry! Gary Green reveals not only the means of Hitler's trickery, but the truly scary fact that the very thing can happen again ... and already has. Includes a chapter on how to manage fear and anger, both within ourselves and in our nation.
