Book Review: Eat This Mr. President: How a Brazilian Immigrant Went From Truck Driver to Millionaire in 4 Years by Marcos Jacober

Eat This Mr. President: How a Brazilian Immigrant Went From Truck Driver to Millionaire in 4 Years by Marcos Jacober

What would you be willing to pay to learn how to make millions of dollars? Would it be worth it to you to spend less than $20 to learn many of the secrets one man used to make millions?

In his book Eat This Mr. President: How a Brazilian Immigrant Went From Truck Driver to Millionaire in 4 Years, Marcos Jacober reveals many of the strategies he used to make millions in real estate tax liens.

This book is a relaunch of his previous book The Secret to 24% Returns Guaranteed By Law!: How a Brazilian Immigrant Went From Truck Driver to Millionaire in Four Years.

Some may see this book as a glorified sales brochure that you pay for. It isn’t. Readers are provided with most of the information they need to get started investing in tax liens. There is also a free website which provides the reader with most of the rest that is needed to get started.

Any information this book does not provide must come from the individual county or tax district. The potential investor must do a little leg work that Mr. Jacober simply could not provide because it is determined on a county by county basis.

We give Eat This Mr. President: How a Brazilian Immigrant Went From Truck Driver to Millionaire in 4 Years by Marcos Jacober and the previous version, The Secret to 24% Returns Guaranteed By Law!: How a Brazilian Immigrant Went From Truck Driver to Millionaire in Four Years all five stars. It is entertaining and informative.

Book Review: Opening: Lotus Hawk’s Prayers & Meditations: Guiding Prayers for Any Day by Harriette “Lotus Hawk” Mandeville

Opening: Lotus Hawk’s Prayers & Meditations: Guiding Prayers for Any Day by Harriette “Lotus Hawk” Mandeville

One really could not consider Opening: Lotus Hawk’s Prayers & Meditations: Guiding Prayers for Any Day by Harriette “Lotus Hawk” Mandeville Christian.

It really isn’t anti-Christian, either. I doubt that one could pin any label on this collection of prayers and meditations.

This very short book is meant to help one reflect on their thoughts and feelings.

We are Fundamental/Charismatic Christians. We judge any book that claims to be spiritual in nature using that as our starting point. But, we also judge books by the value received for the price paid.

All things considered, we really cannot give Openings a rating higher than three stars. Many of the 68 pages of this book are blank (10 pages or 14%) with the understanding the reader will make notes on those pages. Several of the other pages are mostly blank.

We really cannot recommend Openings at all. The theology is all over the place. It is very polytheistic in nature.

Book Review: Unveiling the Mystery of the Bride of Christ: The Restoration Truth of Who & What Is the Bride of Christ by Duke Levy

Unveiling the Mystery of the Bride of Christ: The Restoration Truth of Who & What Is the Bride of Christ by Duke Levy

Any time one has an alternative interpretation of the scriptures from what we were taught in Sunday School, we question the validity of that interpretation.

In Sunday School, we are taught that God changed Saul’s name to Paul. This never happened. Saul was his Hebrew name and Paul was the translation of Saul into the Gentile tongue.

This is why we read Unveiling the Mystery of the Bride of Christ: The Restoration Truth of Who & What Is the Bride of Christ by Duke Levy with an open mind.

We may not see eye-to-eye with Mr. Levy on the interpretation of the scriptures, but we can understand why he believes what he believes.

One instance of this difference would be Mr. Levy thinks we should continue to eat only foods that are clean according to the Old Testament. He may be right. However, our interpretation of Acts 11 leads us to believe that all foods are now clean. Would we be better to err on the side of caution?

Mr. Levy makes some very good points. We cannot judge whether he is right or wrong, theologically speaking. We know what we believe and can see why he believes what he believes.

Unveiling the Mystery of the Bride of Christ is very well-written and well-researched. Mr. Levy has spent years analyzing the scriptures to learn the truth, as he interprets it. We give this book all five stars.

We were sent a complimentary copy of this book. We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Here are my responses:

A day without rain will be a good day for outdoor video making. But, that’s not happening here anytime soon, apparently.

The best time of day is the middle of the night. We are night owls here at McClendon Villa.

Public speaking is not my strong suit. As a matter of fact, even dressed as Xena Warrior Princess (and she was pretty strong!), I couldn’t do it!

It’s all fun and games until the litter box calls!

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Book Review: Competing With Giants: How One Family-Owned Company Took on the Multinationals and Won by Phương Uyên Trần and Jackie Horne

Competing With Giants: How One Family-Owned Company Took on the Multinationals and Won by Phương Uyên Trần and Jackie Horne

It is unusual to find a book like Competing With Giants: How One Family-Owned Company Took on the Multinationals and Won by Phương Uyên Trần and Jackie Horne. It works well as a casual reading experience about business. It also works well as a source of historical information.

In this book, readers learn a little about the history of Vietnam and the surrounding areas. Readers learn about the perceptions the Vietnamese people have of the United States of America and the rest of the world.

By now, you may be thinking that this book only works as a business book and a history book. It also gives readers an insight into how families can, and perhaps should, relate to one another.

This book works as a book to inspire small business owners as they seek to compete with larger companies. This book works also as a biography of the founder and founding family of one of the largest companies in Vietnam, as well as a biography of the author.

If you are in business and want to compete on a global level, you should read this book. It should help you understand a little better about how to think like the culture you are trying to market to.

We give Competing With Giants all five stars. We think it is written well and provides a wealth of information from the perspective of someone other than a Western business person. It would make a great textbook.

We were sent a complimentary PDF copy of this book. We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Book Review: Ninja Foodi: The Pressure Cooker that Crisps: Complete Cookbook for Beginners: Your Expert Guide to Pressure Cook, Air Fry, Dehydrate, and More by Kenzie Swanhart

Ninja Foodi: The Pressure Cooker that Crisps: Complete Cookbook for Beginners: Your Expert Guide to Pressure Cook, Air Fry, Dehydrate, and More by Kenzie Swanhart

Available September 25, 2018

We do not have a Ninja Foodi at McClendon Villa. When we were sent a review copy of Ninja Foodi: The Pressure Cooker that Crisps: Complete Cookbook for Beginners: Your Expert Guide to Pressure Cook, Air Fry, Dehydrate, and More by Kenzie Swanhart, we had to evaluate it based on the question, “Are these instructions easy enough for David, who has very limited skills in the kitchen, to follow?”

The answer to that question is a resounding, yes. These recipes are clear and easy to follow. They have enough detail to tell first-time users of the Ninja Foodi how to use it and what attachments to use to make each dish.

These easy to understand recipes list all the ingredients needed, prep time, different cook times and temperatures, detailed instructions along with serving information regarding serving size, calories, etc.

If we had a Ninja Foodi, we would take it into the kitchen of McClendon Villa and demonstrate. Perhaps we will get one soon.

We were sent a complimentary review copy of Ninja Foodi: The Pressure Cooker that Crisps from the publisher. We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Book Review: The Siren Chronicles – Book 1 By Douglas J. Sloan

The Siren Chronicles – Book 1 By Douglas J. Sloan

Imagine being ordered away as you see someone devouring your parents. Or, walking along the beach and finding someone practically on death’s door, covered in seaweed. Or, waking up in a frat house with people staring at and pawing on you. Or, crying in a cave.

Imagine a whole lot more than that! The Siren Chronicles by Douglas J. Sloan offers a great deal of excitement as three mermaids embark on their earth quest. Each one faces challenges as they learn to maneuver themselves on land and deal with humans.

One of them gets the answer to something that has haunted her since childhood.

All three get a taste of evil that will take every ounce of their strength to defeat. Can they do it? They have to. Their underwater world depends on it.

I enjoyed The Siren Chronicles immensely. I couldn’t put it down and can’t wait to read Book 2!

The last time I went outside was yesterday (I’m writing this Thursday morning). It smelled like fall in South Carolina. It made me so happy, yet even more homesick. It was a wonderful smell memory moment.

Money isn’t everything. Not even close.

I am sure being short is a blessing in disguise. I can’t wait to meet the Costume Designer.

My favorite word is Thanksgiving! It is also my favorite food. And, one of my favorite memories.

Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

Book Review: Prancie’s Prayer by Ellen J. Pilch Illustrated by Nicolas Peruzzo

Prancie’s Prayer by Ellen J. Pilch Illustrated by Nicolas Peruzzo

By now all of our readers know that we here at McClendon Villa are animal lovers. That is why we love Prancie’s Prayer by Ellen J. Pilch, which was illustrated by Nicolas Peruzzo. It is such a wonderful story. It shows that animals are part of the Kingdom, too.

This story is Christian-based. It takes place around Christmas, so it would make a wonderful Christmas present, or early Christmas present, for your kids.

This very heartwarming story is extremely well-written and the illustrations are magnificent. We give it all five stars and a can of tuna. You are looking for a great gift for your young child. You could not do better than Prancie’s Prayer.
