Thailand Diaries (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: 15 WEEKS - Grab your download today.

If you are seriously thinking about living in Thailand you need to read James King’s THAILAND DIARIES starting with 15WEEKS.

Witty, informative, often deliciously ‘tongue-in-cheek’ and full of typically British humour, is a must read for travellers, would be ex-pats and those who just enjoy humorous light reading.
Between Jun and Sep 2008 James King stayed for fifteen weeks on the tropical island of Phuket where he formed his first impressions of Thailand. He learned a little of what it would be like to live in Thailand permanently and he diarised his activities, observations and some unusual incidents which took place during his 15 week sojourn.
On arrival he had no intention of settling in Thailand permanently but when he gleaned valuable information about the Country and its people he changed his mind.
The Author recognises that many aspects of 15 WEEKS apply equally to women as they do to men even though he writes from a male point of view.
James writes more extensively about Thailand in Volumes 2 and 3.


We hope you’ll be kind enough to post a review.

Adolf Hitler: A Captivating Guide to the Life of the Führer of Nazi Germany

Explore the Rise of Adolf Hitler


Free History BONUS Inside!

Was Hitler, as Ian Kershaw asked, a natural consequence of German history, or an aberration? Not that Hitler had been in hiding, waiting to attack. The Führer had actually been following an aggressive and savage foreign policy for almost ten years, and been named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1938.

This is not a book about World War II, but about the man, Adolf Hitler, one of the faces and names that still arouse the strongest feelings—repulsion, resentment, and even fanaticism—but one who also had a childhood and a youth, a father and a mother. It is the road to madness—beginning that day in August of 1934 when he took over absolute power and ordered allegiance and loyalty to him alone—that this book is about.

Some of the topics covered in this book include:


  • Hitler's Origins
  • His Inception
  • The anti-Semitic capital of Europe
  • Munich
  • First World War
  • Hitler's Ascension
  • Mein Kampf
  • His Downfall
  • The remains of Adolf Hitler
  • And a Great Deal More that You don't Want to Miss out on!

The Art of War (Chiron Academic Press - The Original Authoritative Edition)
THE ART OF WAR (Chinese: 孫子兵法; pinyin: Sūnzĭ bīngfǎ) is an ancient Chinese military treatise attributed to Sun Tzu, a high-ranking military general, strategist and tactician, and kindred to the Realpolitik of his time, termed in China as Legalism. The text is composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare. It is commonly thought of as a definitive work on military strategy and tactics. It has been the most famous and influential of China's Seven Military Classics, and "for the last two thousand years it remained the most important military treatise in Asia, where even the common people knew it by name." It has had an influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy and beyond.

Beyond its military and intelligence applications from earliest days to the present time, THE ART OF WAR has been applied to many fields well outside of the military. Much of the text is about how to fight wars without actually having to do battle: it gives tips on how to outsmart one's opponent so that physical battle is not necessary. As such, it has found application as a training guide for many competitive endeavors that do not involve actual combat. There are business books applying its lessons to office politics and corporate strategy. Many companies make the book required reading for their key executives. The book is also popular among Western business management, who have turned to it for inspiration and advice on how to succeed in competitive business situations. It has also been applied to the field of education. The Art of War has been the subject of law books and legal articles on the trial process, including negotiation tactics and trial strategy.

The Art of War (AmazonClassics Edition)

Long considered the most essential treatise on military strategy and tactics, The Art of War comprises thirteen chapters, each dedicated to a different aspect of warfare. Reaching far beyond the battlefield, it is a manifesto for success in every kind of conflict or competition, having had a notable influence on various subjects such as law, sports, and interpersonal relationships.

In this definitive 1910 Lionel Giles translation, the celebrated sinologist’s interpretive notes and valuable commentary make clear the nuances of Sun Tzu’s language. Most critical, Giles provides the context and culture from which the general’s theories emerged.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Art of War, this edition of The Art of War (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Life Among the Piutes: Their Wrongs and Claims
Sarah Winnemucca Hopkins (c. 1844 – 1891) was a Northern Paiute author, activist and educator.
Winnemucca published Life Among the Paiutes: Their Wrongs and Claims (1883), a book that is both a memoir and history of her people during their first 40 years of contact with European Americans.

It is considered the "first known autobiography written by a Native American woman."
Anthropologist Omer Stewart described it as "one of the first and one of the most enduring ethnohistorical books written by an American Indian," frequently cited by scholars.
Following the publication of the book, Winnemucca toured the Eastern United States, giving lectures about her people in New England, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. She returned to the West, founding a private school for Native American children in Lovelock, Nevada.

Egyptian Mythology: A Fascinating Guide to Understanding the Gods, Goddesses, Monsters, and Mortals (Greek Mythology - Norse Mythology - Egyptian Mythology Book 3)

Enjoy Captivating Stories of the Gods, Goddesses, Monsters, and Mortals


From what we know of history, Egypt, along with Sumer, were the foundations of civilization. The Fertile Crescent, which stretched from the Nile Valley to the twin rivers in Mesopotamia, gave us our earliest glimpse of organized man. But organized how? For one, both locations gave us writing—hieroglyphics in Egypt and cuneiform in Sumer. There is still some debate about who was first.

In this book, we will start by looking at the gods and goddesses of Kemet—Ancient Egypt. Then, we will turn our attention to the monsters which likely gave them nightmares and humbled them in their quest to bring order to the world around them.
Finally, we will look at the mortals which shaped their civilization and made Egypt the bedrock of our own history. Though Egypt today is only a third-world nation, struggling with terrorism and poverty, their heritage remains vital to the understanding of who we are as a species.

Just some of the topics covered in this book include


  • Osiris, Isis, Seth, and Horus
  • The Sun and Creation
  • Gods and Humans
  • Apep: Great Snake of Chaos
  • Sett: God of Desert, Storms, War, Evil, and Chaos
  • Imhotep, the 27th Century BC Polymath
  • Akhenaten, the King Who Upended Tradition
  • Ramesses the Great
  • Cleopatra, End of an Epoch
  • And Much More

The French Revolution and Napoleon
Any one who seeks to understand the stirring period in which we are now living becomes quickly aware that he must first know the history of the French Revolution, a movement that inaugurated a new era, not only for France but for the world. The years from 1789 to 1815, the years of the Revolution and of Napoleon, effected one of the greatest and most difficult transitions of which history bears record, and to gain any proper sense of its significance one must have some glimpse of the background, some conception of what Europe was like in 1789. That background can only be sketched here in a few broad strokes, far from adequate to a satisfactory appreciation, but at least indicating the point of departure.

What was Europe in 1789? One thing, at least, it was not: it was not a unity. There were states of every size and shape and with every form of government. The States of the Church were theocratic; capricious and cruel despotism...
