Quotes from the Buddha are everywhere: on Facebook, Instagram, coffee mugs, posters. There's only one problem: the Buddha didn't actually say most of them. This humorous and informative book takes these fake Buddha quotes as a launching point for a discussion on what the Buddha really did say, and is a great entry point for those interested in learning more about Buddhism--what it is, and what it isn't. Bodhipaksa, a well-known Buddhist teacher and the founder of fakebuddhaquotes.com, takes a look at some of the quotes that are erroneously attributed to the Buddha, explains the ways in which these disagree (or sometimes agree) with Buddhist teachings, and offers some genuine examples of the Buddha's words. The perfect gift for the Buddhist in your life and an essential addition to any Buddhist library, I Can't Believe It's Not Buddha! is at once humorous and scholarly, and a timely antidote to the "fake news" that can surround some of the Buddha's teachings.

Totally grain free, gluten free, sugar free, soy free and cow’s milk free cooking, came about when the authors Kate Myers and Judy Hendren were diagnosed with food intolerances that we find are quite common in modern society. After finding the shops limiting in suitable foods and a general lack of suitable recipes, they went about creating their own. Their aim has been to create recipes that are delicious, nutritious and most importantly taste like regular food that the whole family will enjoy. Try some of the authors’ favourites like, Best Ever Muffins, Apple Crumble, Pizzas, Shepherd’s Pie, Grain Free Bread, and Delicious Fruit Cake. Yes you can have your cake and eat it too! This book even includes a section called “The Pantry” that talks about the ingredients used in the book and where to buy them. If you suffer from food intolerances and are finding it hard to find good delicious food and are a loss at what to cook then this book is for you.
My mother would kill me for saying it, but this dish, as excellent as it is in its pure state, tastes even better if you add (I'm cringing as I say it...) one cup of frozen peas while you're mashing things around in the big mixing bowl.

"Loved this book. There were tons of fresh ideas. Books like this make being vegetarian fun. I'm vegan, but found the recipes could be veganized easily, and the Whelans give hints on how to do this. All of the recipes I've tried have been delicious, and I couldn't be happier with this book." -- Lisa Bunny The "Mock Tuna" at the core of this amazing 1970's comfort food "remake" has proven an extraordinary vegetarian tuna-replacement in a huge variety of recipes – Mock Tuna sandwiches, salads, burgers, melts, pasta dishes, and even that classic Chinese restaurant appetizer, Crab Rangoon (Mock Tuna Rangoon, anyone?)... If you're an adult vegetarian who still longs for the tuna-based comfort foods of your youth, your wait is over. You can now indulge your cravings without concern – no animals were harmed in the making of any recipe in this book!

Walmart provides a detailed assessment of the world's largest retailer that forever changed the face of retailing. The book examines Walmart's successes, failures, and whether it can stay ahead for the next 50 years. Despite being a source for best practice in procurement, logistics, systems and store format innovation, the retail giant is now facing several issues that affect its future development. Starting from its inception in rural Arkansas in 1962, this objective analysis of Walmart's history addresses the rapid change of retail, including the rise of e-commerce and multi-channel retailing; Walmart International and its 'everyday low prices' philosophy; the saturation of the superstore format, and much more. In a time of rapid change, will the world's largest retailer be able to reconfigure? Walmart provides the necessary insights for retailers, advertisers, other business professionals and students to understand how Walmart became a retail giant, the lessons that can be learned, and what is in store for the future.

This is book 2 of the Evelina series. Things get even hot. Raised stakes and a matter of life or death. Mankind’s existence rest on the shoulders of one woman. The Omega. The first woman has become the last woman. The only true seal. What if it was all planned before this world was created? To save all humanity, mankind must find the only true key; the Omega. On the other hand, to restore the lost kingdom of darkness, the devil must find the most wanted catalyst; The Omega. When everyone’s fate is in your hands what are the risks to yourself? It is a dash against time as total obliteration of the losing team is imminent and inevitable. It is a story of courage, steadfast and honor in the face of death. When loyalty is tested to breaking points. When the person you are to protect is the same person you must kill to save humanity from extinction? Some choices are meant for gods as humans are too weak and unequipped to handle such traumatic experiences. One man’s quest to solve God’s Dilemma, but at what cost? One lady’s quest to clear her name and enjoy life like every woman out there, but with what is at stake will the evil regime turn a blind eye?And at what expense?On the edge of the seat from the word go. A MUST READ.

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep. Genesis 1:1-2 Creation stories try to explain how everything originates from nothing. They leave something out. Nothing also has a history. This book aims to tell it. Books about nothing go back for billions of years. So say astronomers who conjecture that civilizations formed soon after the universe cooled to form stars and planets. What did the antennas of these historians miss that might be captured in this book? The hominid side of nothing. I start with a cousin of homo sapiens who picked up a pebble with holes that seemed to make faces (figure 0.1). Many faces later (each chapter pairs a philosopher with an absence), I conclude with Bertrand Russell's precise analysis of how Caspar does not exist' could be true (chapter 22). About the fifth century BC, three civilizations independently and simultaneously began to philosophize about nothing: China (chapter 3), India (chapters 4 and 5), and Greece (chapters 6-10). They had previously focused on what is the case. Light poured on nature, architecture, and society. But then, in a cross-civilizational black-out, emerged disparate nay-sayers who shifted attention to what is not the case. Behold, the holes in a sponge are absences of sponge! Holes are what make the sponge useful for absorbing liquid. The sponge can exist without the holes. But the holes cannot "exist" without the sponge. They are parasites that depend on their host. Yet the two get along well. Without holes, there would not be so many sponges in your house. Your shadow is a more complex parasite. It is a hole you bore into the light. Your shadow depends on both you and the light. You and light are rather mysterious. Your shadow partakes of both mysteries. Omissions have a yet more complex relationship with action. Actions are events and so are not "things." When you refrain from voting, you do not subtract from what is but rather from what might be. When you regret not voting, your emotion requires counterfactual history: If I had voted, my friend would have won. You are in the land of near-misses. Being is riddled with non-beings. Why are the riddles first posed 2,600 years ago? Why all at once? This negative turn in world philosophy is the coincidence that inspired me to write Nothing: A Philosophical History. My hope was to find some common factor that could explain the simultaneous and independent shift in perspective. The common cause I postulate in this book is the deployment of a cognitive trick dreamed up cave dwellers. Any waking experience of an event can also be explained by the parasitical hypothesis 'he event was merely dreamt.' The parasite takes over the consequences of the host hypothesis The event was perceived"--
