Dr. Charles Richards is a licensed psychotherapist in San Diego, California. Dr. Richards has used a non-hypnotic therapeutic practice called Soul Journeys with over a thousand patients with staggering results. In this book, Dr. Richards explains the often misunderstood spiritual law of karma and how it may be affecting your life. He includes a questionnaire to help each reader identify their karmic relationships, assess the level of intensity of these relationships and helps uncover unconscious triggers and patterns. Throughout this book readers will learn how to change negative and damaging relationships and resolve the karmic issues that hold us all back. Included in the book are dozens of fascinating case studies of the use of Soul Journeys including stories of how this process has affected Dr. Richards own life and relationships for the better.
Also covered in the book are stories of patients who used the Soul Journeys process to discover in between life reunions where upcoming lives are planned with other souls that will determine the course of love and relationships in our present day lives. Additional stories include patients remembering experiences from their prenatal and birth process that influences, for better or worse, the lives they live today. Dr. Richards shows us how we can resolve these issues and memories in order to increas self esteem live a more positive life.
I personally found this such a fascinating book that I read it in one sitting and bought several copies for friends. This book is particularly recommended for people who have tried unsuccessfully to use traditional therapy to resolve current difficult relationships and ongoing life struggles. Read with an open mind this book offers another option to help each reader live their best life.

Ian Buruma, the editor of The New York Review of Books, left his position on Wednesday amid an uproar over the magazine's publication of an essay by a disgraced Canadian radio broadcaster who had been accused of sexually assaulting women.
The essay's author, Jian Ghomeshi, who was acquitted of sexual assault charges in 2016, lamented his status as a pariah, "constantly competing with a villainous version of myself online."
It caused immediate furor, with some criticizing what they saw as a self-pitying tone, and soft pedaling of the accusations, which included slapping and choking, and had come from more than 20 women, rather than "several," as Mr. Ghomeshi wrote.
A number of publishers, most of them university presses, are taking Target Corporation to task for redacting certain key words in the product descriptions of their books.

The Barnes & Noble roller-coaster ride continued last Friday, when the company's stock, which had dropped 8% the day before after another disappointing quarterly report, jumped 16.5%, to $5.30, on more than triple the usual volume. The cause: several pieces of news that suggested the company could be the subject of a takeover offer.
UK bookstore chain Waterstones is buying the 115 year-old family-owned chain Foyles, saying the deal will help to "champion" real bookshops in the face of online rivals.

Neil Gaiman and Haruki Murakami have been shortlisted for a substitute Nobel literature prize, created by cultural figures in Sweden after the Academy, rocked by a sexual assault scandal, was forced to postpone the awarding of 2018's prize.
The New Academy Prize was established, "to warrant that an international literary prize will be awarded in 2018, but also as a reminder that literature should be associated with democracy, openness, empathy and respect," the organisers said.
