From the man who catapulted the Covenant with Black America to number one on the New York Times bestseller list comes a searing memoir of poverty, ambition, pain and atonment. Tavis Smiley grew up in a family of thirteen in rural Indian, where money was scarce and the sight of other black faces even scarcer. Always an outsider because of his race, economic background, and Pentecostal religious beliefs, he was sustained by his family’s love. But one day his world was shattered when his father brutally beat him, sending him to the hospital and then into foster care for a period of time. In What I Know for Sure, Smiley recounts how he overcame his painful history and became one of America’s most popular media figures.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary of the book and NOT the original book. What I Know For Sure by Oprah Winfrey - A 15-minute Instaread Summary Inside this Instaread Summary: • Overview of the entire book • Introduction to the important people in the book • Summary and analysis of all the chapters in the book • Key Takeaways of the book • A Reader's Perspective Preview of this summary:Chapter 1 Amid everyday stresses, Winfrey learned to savor the peak experiences that make life worth living, which she calls ‘ahhh’ moments. Her first principle of joy is that, whether working or playing, people should delight in what they do and live in the moment. To illustrate this, Winfrey relates how terrified she was when singer, Tina Turner, invited her to be a backup dancer for a show. She feared embarrassing herself, yet went up on the stage and found joy in dancing. Second, Winfrey has come to understand, despite her lifelong weight problems, food still should be a source of joy, as when she and her friends shared a memorable dinner at a trattoria in Rome. People who love chocolate, as she does, need not ban it from their lives, but instead eat small amounts and savor every moment of it. Finally, Winfrey learned to delight in her friends, such as her beloved, best friend, Gayle King, and her diet guru, Bob Greene. King, whom Winfrey met in 1976, both keeps her grounded and cheers her on. Greene guides her on the path of eating foods that are right for both her body and her spirit…
This book is the result of what I saw and heard during the many years in the Philippines as I prepared to immigrate and the years since I came to America. It is a compilation of stories from myself and others who came to the United States and the lessons we learned along the way. My mission is to give hope, comfort, and support for future immigrant families as they face the challenges of immigrating. What We Know For Sure features Filipino U.S. Embassy employees who provided long, faithful, and valuable service to the United States Government. In this book, they share the process of coming to America and the truth behind the hard work and sacrifices it takes to stay. It was written for potential immigrants and immigrants, no matter what stage of the process they are in. These stories are here to comfort, inspire, educate, and guide any immigrant throughout his or her journey to the land of the free. I recently fulfilled my "Mission Africa" and was inspired to create another mission called "Mission Philippines" which was eventually the impetus for this first book.
Bastard Out of Carolina, nominated for the 1992 National Book Award for fiction, introduced Dorothy Allison as one of the most passionate and gifted writers of her generation. Now, in Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, she takes a probing look at her family's history to give us a lyrical, complex memoir that explores how the gossip of one generation can become legends for the next. Illustrated with photographs from the author's personal collection, Two or Three Things I Know for Sure tells the story of the Gibson women -- sisters, cousins, daughters, and aunts -- and the men who loved them, often abused them, and, nonetheless, shared their destinies. With luminous clarity, Allison explores how desire surprises and what power feels like to a young girl as she confronts abuse. As always, Dorothy Allison is provocative, confrontational, and brutally honest. Two or Three Things I Know for Sure, steeped in the hard-won wisdom of experience, expresses the strength of her unique vision with beauty and eloquence.

Powerful skills based in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you break free from the fear of uncertainty and put a stop to compulsive checking and reassurance seeking. “How do I know I made the right decision?” “What if I’m wrong?” “I need to know for sure.” Do you have thoughts like these—thoughts that cause you to second-guess yourself, and lead to anxiety, stress, and worry? Do you find yourself repeatedly checking your email for no reason, asking others for their opinions about something again and again, or lying awake at night overanalyzing and planning ahead in an attempt to feel less anxious? If so, you probably have a problem with compulsive reassurance seeking. The good news is that you can break free from this “reassurance trap”—this book will show you how. In this unique guide, you’ll find proven-effective tips and tools using CBT to help you tolerate uncertainty, face specific worrying scenarios, and gradually reduce the compulsion to incessantly seek reassurance. Most importantly, you’ll learn to deal with those pesky “doubt attacks” and trust your own judgment. Asking for reassurance is a self-reinforcing behavior—if you do it, you’re less likely to handle stressful situations without needing further reassurance. And so the cycle continues. The CBT skills in this book will help you break this exhausting and painful pattern, so you can build self-confidence and improve your life.

Can a team of renowned archaeologists and scientists find a way to save Earth’s impending doom? The catastrophic scenario began one day, while out in the Valley of the Kings, in southern Egypt, an American archaeologist named Sebastian, uncovered a small tomb of an ancient architect buried in the sands. He found cradled in the arms of this mummy a floor plan, drawn on a papyrus, to an unidentified structure. Sebastian is amazed by his discovery, because no papyri had ever been found buried with a mummy before. He placed great importance in what he had uncovered, as he believed that the plans were meant to be taken into the afterworld with the deceased architect, and kept there as a secret for all eternity. The secret would have revealed who or what was entombed there forever. Sebastian’s long and tedious search to identify the mysterious structure leads him to a secret tomb buried under the tomb of King Tutankhamen. What he discovers in the hidden chambers below is more than just another mummy. It is the remains of a revered deity, and an alien, who lived amongst the Egyptians as one of their most important God’s. He was the God Osiris. Sebastian, along with his close friends, Ben-Josef and Lucas, also archaeologists, comb through thousands of artifacts and hundreds of papyri, which leads to the discovery of incredible alien secrets. These secrets, in turn, lead them to theorize about a Counterweight Theory, and the discovery of a hidden chamber under the Great Pyramid of Khufu in Giza. What they find amazes the world’s scientific community. Along the way, they encounter an alien spacecraft and alien scientific relics, which are able to come to life while holding them in their hands. Another important discovery, crucial to Earth’s survival, was also discovered hidden away in the pyramid’s chamber. Will the alien’s save Earth, or will they turn their backs to Earthlings, and leave the planet to its doomed destiny? The story unfolds in the pages of this
