Originals by Adam M. Grant

The #1 bestseller that a 31-year-old Google executive says had a huge influence on her career. Originals examines how people can champion new ideas—and how leaders can fight groupthink, from the author of Give and Take.

With Give and Take, Adam Grant not only introduced a landmark new paradigm for success but also established himself as one of his generation’s most compelling and provocative thought leaders. In Originals he again addresses the challenge of improving the world, but now from the perspective of becoming original: choosing to champion novel ideas and values that go against the grain, battle conformity, and buck outdated traditions. How can we originate new ideas, policies, and practices without risking it all?

Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Grant explores how to recognize a good idea, speak up without getting silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt; how parents and teachers can nurture originality in children; and how leaders can build cultures that welcome dissent.

Children in the Woods by Erik Knockaert

Enter for a chance to win 1 of 20 author signed copies.

This is a true story of how the author, a Texas attorney, explored the spirit realm, following clues left by ancient writers in the Bible and testing their techniques.

This book tells how I learned to open my eyes to the spirit realm, all that befell me when I did, the beings I met, and what they taught me.

I had encounters with God, the Reaper, the Devil, angels, demons, ghosts, and other things. I avoided my own death, lived a borrowed year in the mountains, uncovered techniques that were lost, and received new revelation about scripture.

This book teaches mysteries. Heaven can be entered before death. There are courts we can access for cleansing. God’s plan of redemption is far beyond what theology guessed. God is a loving father, not a vengeful deity. A time of healing is coming, greater than in the Bible. There is even a path of life to supernatural health.

The cover art depicts Matthew 18:3, where Christ said you must enter the spirit realm like children. This book shares how we tried.

My book is available now on KindleUnlimited.

God bless you all,
