Winston Churchill: A Captivating Guide to the Life of Winston S. Churchill

Explore How Churchill Went From Schoolboy Failure to Wartime Hero


Free History BONUS Inside!

As a British politician who was well known for serving twice as prime minister for the United Kingdom and as an infamous war organizer, leader Winston S. Churchill filled his long life with achievements and recognition plotted throughout every modern history book. Most famously, he led Great Britain into victory over Nazi Germany during World War II in his first run as prime minister and played an essential role in negotiating peace once the war reached an unsteady end. Commonly, his name is associated as one of the “Big Three” alongside United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Soviet Union leader Joseph Stalin. In unity, the three men helped lead the world to a resolution from the violence and terror that reigned in World War II.

Winston S. Churchill was more than a military and government leader, though. He lived an entire life full of accomplishments that defined him as a singular person, rather than a government and military leader. In 1953, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature for his “mastery of historical and biographical description as well as for brilliant oratory in defending exalted human values.” Although he maintained a somewhat monotone voice over the radio, Churchill excelled in speaking to live crowds as he imparted encouraging words and recounted tales of his life adventures. On top of these accomplishments as a writer and a trailblazer, Churchill is famous for his endless reserves of energy and his need for little sleep, which allowed him to pursue many projects and hobbies outside of his governmental duties. Among many other possible descriptions, Winton Churchill categorizes as a father, a husband, a painter, a war hero, a politician, a soldier, a smoker, a gambler, and a philosopher.

Some of the topics covered in this book include:


  • Churchill’s Personal Life
  • His Mental Health
  • Childhood and Early Education
  • Military Service
  • Early Political Career and World War I
  • The Wilderness Years and Rearmament
  • World War II
  • Post-World War II and Second Term
  • The United States and the Soviet Union
  • And much more!
Any general biography of Winston S. Churchill will provide an overview of his greatest achievements, but Churchill had other goals and desires that are often ignored and forgotten. What were they? Churchill had a family—a childhood and children of his own—and a political career that began at a young age. He spoke with and entertained some of the biggest names in the world, within both the political and social realms. How did he interact with Franklin D. Roosevelt? With Mahatma Gandhi? Beneath the accolades and accomplishments lies one important question: Who was Winston S. Churchill out of the spotlight? What were his struggles and personal goals? Was he an average man in some ways? The following book is an outline of Winston S. Churchill’s life that not only gives a brief overview of his best-known feats but also provides a glimpse into who he was as a person.

Mindfulness meditation is everywhere these days, from the therapy couch to the Google campus, from prisons to athletic events. But what are the origins of this surge in mindfulness? What kind of worldview and lifestyle went along with these ancient techniques of meditative training? And, beyond the questionable metaphysics and well-worn pop-psychology bromides, what is meditation actually for?

This book explores the Buddhist ideas behind the mindfulness techniques that have seen such a groundswell of popularity. It covers meditation not just as a body of techniques for relaxation and stress relief to accessorize our busy modern lives, but as part of a radical system of self-transformation that offers the possibility of profound liberation.

In this book, the Buddhist system and the ideas behind it are presented, not as a religion that's asking for your allegiance, but as a body of theory and practice geared towards fostering an an inner revolution.

Buddhism for beginners will teach you :


  • The worldview underpinning Buddhist meditation techniques, and what those techniques were actually intended for.

  • The principles that guide a life lived genuinely, gracefully, and compassionately.

  • What meditation is all about in the context of the Buddhist path, and how to get into the practice of working with your mind.

  • A surprising vision of the self, the mind, and the nature of human experience that can fundamentally alter the way you look at the world.

Check out some of the testimonials below:

"If I had the choice of being lectured about Buddhism or reading a book, I'd pick this specific book because it is so nicely written. It starts out pretty slow paced introducing a bunch of concepts related to Buddhism before moving towards meditation and the like. It sucked me in right away and I continued flipping page after page nonstop. Reading in a quiet room sure helped and I felt this great sense of calmness. It's pretty amazing!"

"If you are beginning to practice Buddhism or are contemplating doing so, this book is a great place to start. It is the perfect book to give to friends or family members who are not familiar with Buddhism but want to understand your newfound spirituality. This book was extremely easy for me to understand and I fully as though the concepts presented were something that I could begin to apply now and by my own unaided strength. I would recommend this book to anyone else who is curious about Buddhism regardless of whether or not you intend on making Buddhism part of your life."
