The Axis of Time series - John Birmingham

I just finished reading this series, and thoroughly enjoyed it!

The series takes a fictional multinational force from the year 2021 and throws them back in time (thanks to idiot scientists) into the middle of the Pacific in 1942... in fact into the middle of an American fleet.

There is so much to work with here, and John does a brilliant job dealing with the impacts of modern technology and a society that no longer discriminates by race, gender, or religion. Imagine the fun of having Russians and Japanese as part of the multinational force? And what happens when the bad guys also get hold of the technology?

Adrenal Fatigue: The 21st Century Stress Syndrome - James L. Wilson

Do You Have Adrenal Fatigue?
  • Tired for no reason?
  • Having trouble getting up in the morning?
  • Need coffee or colas to keep you going?
  • Feeling run down and stressed?
  • Crave salty or sweet snacks?
  • Struggling to keep up with life's daily demands?
  • Can't bounce back from stress or illness?
  • Not having fun anymore?
  • Decreased sex drive?
If you answered "yes" to any of the above, you need this book!

Why did I read this? Because I answered yes to 8 of the 9 questions above. And it worked. By taking the vitamins and minerals recommended in this book, and working on reducing stressors (or my response to them), I am now a happy and healthy person once more. I sleep all night and wake up refreshed!
